Natural Beauty Find- Honest Beauty Extreme Length Mascara and Lash Primer

Honest Beauty Extreme Length Mascara and Lash Primer

I've had a "love-hate" relationship with mascara primers over the years.  In most cases, I loved the results I got using them.  My lashes were thicker, longer and lusher.  But I didn't always love having to do another step by then adding the mascara.  

But Honest Beauty Extreme Length Mascara and Lash Primer helped me clear that hurdle with it's convenient the two-in-one tube design (which is also so pretty!)  Honest Beauty Extreme Length Mascara and Lash Primer is also a natural, clean formula that performs as well as some of my all time favorite "traditional" mascaras, so it's now one of my newest obsessions!

I first applied the Lash Primer with the coral-pink smaller handle, and the length and design of the brush made it easy to get all of my top - and bottom lashes coated with the smooth, lightweight white primer formula.  I waited about 30 seconds and then applied the Extreme Length Mascara with the white, larger handle.  I could see the difference in my lashes immediately.  My lashes had beautiful separation, were significantly longer and looked much thicker.  The black color was deep and the formula didn't clump during application or flake after it dried.

During the day my lashes stayed in place and there was no smudging or running (but this is not a waterproof formula).  At night, Honest Beauty Extreme Length Mascara and Lash Primer was easy to remove with my micellar water or any other makeup remover.

Drugstore Buy of the Week - Pacifica Glow Baby Booster Serum

Pacifica Glow Baby Booster Serum

It's no secret that I've shared a lot of serums with my readers over the years - and I also love a product that has glow in the name.  BUT the product has to really deliver results for me to want to talk about it, and at under $15. Pacifica Glow Baby Booster Serum has just passed that test for me.  

Pacifica Glow Baby Booster Serum is a concentrated serum made with  stabilized vitamin C and glycolic acid, that helps brighten and improve the texture of skin.  Pacifica Glow Baby Booster Serum is 100% vegan & cruelty-free. Formulated without parabens, phthalates, SLS or mineral oil.

Pacifica Glow Baby Booster Serum  has a very watery consistency out of the bottle, but after adding a few drops into my hand and then on my skin it turned slightly gel like and absorbed into my skin within a few minutes (I used this primarily at night after my cleansing routine).   In the mornings, my skin still felt soft and smooth and I had a wonderful glow to start off my day prior to makeup application.  *Note: As per the directions I shook the bottle really well before applying it.

After using Pacifica Glow Baby Booster Serum for 2 weeks my skin was noticeably brighter and very soft and smooth even without adding additional moisturizer to my drier cheek area.  

The scent is also a nice touch - a light, slightly sweet citrus scent with evaporates quickly.  Occasionally, I also add a few drops of the serum into my daytime skincare such as my tinted moisturizer, and love the additional glow finish.   Pacifica Glow Baby Booster Serum is a game changer! - RLB

Fragrance Find - Sol de Janeiro SOL Cheirosa ’62 Eau de Parfum

Sol de Janeiro SOL Cheirosa ’62 Eau de Parfum

It was love at first sniff years ago when Sol de Janeiro launched their "cheeky" named product, Sol de Janeiro Brazilian Bum Bum Cream It was not only creamy, silky and moisturizing, but had the most amazing scent I had ever smelled in a body care product, which they called Cheirosa ’62.

Fast forward to 2020 and many Cheirosa ’62 scented products later, and Sol de Janeiro has finally created a Cheirosa ’62 eau de parfum.  What makes this scent so unique and beloved by many is that it's a sweet gourmand fragrance - which is also still remarkably light and fresh.

The secret is in the blend of salted caramel, pistachio, jasmine, and vanilla notes.  After spritzing, the SOL Cheirosa ’62  starts out on my skin with the fresh pistachio and hints of jasmine and then the sweet notes of caramel and vanilla blend in and trace linger my skin for hours.  If you like to layer your Sol de Janeiro body products this is perfect to add as the finishing touch after showering with their  Sol de Janeiro Brazilian 4 Play Moisturizing Shower Cream-Gel and of course moisturizing with the Sol de Janeiro Brazilian Bum Bum Cream

When I layered the products like this, I was so happy throughout the day! The sweet, yummy, yet soft scent lingered on my skin (and tond of compliments were nice too!).  The dry down is vanilla, but not overly sweet and turns slightly spicy by nighttime.  I love that this scent can turn any day - warm or cold into feeling like you're having a beachy sunny day.
