Fun Find At Target!

Just wanted to pop in and share my fun find today! I was browsing my local Target for a nice tray to place my perfumes in on top of my new dresser and stumbled across these cuties!

Sadly, I didn't find the kind of tray I wanted for my perfumes but I was also in the market for some nice candles. I wanted some affordable, foody scented, cute looking ones and these fit the bill. I love the little ramekins they're in because they remind me of my favorite dessert - creme brulee! It's nice that they small so they don't overwhelm my room and they were on sale for $6.98. They smelled so yummy that I had to pick up the last two on the shelves. They add such a nice cozy touch to my room too!

So have you guys stumbled across any goodies lately? Share in the comments because I'd love to hear about it!

Review: The Body Shop Brazil Nut Body Butter

Hello Lovelies!

Today I'm sharing a review on The Body Shop's Brazil Nut body butter. I remember my first experience with the famous body butters from TBS being horrible! Years ago, I purchased the Mango scent and it smelled delicious but when I tried it out, it felt like I was rubbing Vaseline all over my body. Gross. After that first encounter, I was too horrified to try any of the other body butters they in their line. Being a beauty noob at the time, I never researched my beauty products and hardly knew a thing about make up but now things are different!

Last week, TBS was having a promotion to get 50% off your online order if you purchased the "Bag for Life" tote at $5. With this in mind, I decided to give the body butters another go but this time with a handful of research under my belt. It turns out that the consistencies and textures of each body butter differs depending on the scent. Some body butters will leave more of a thick and greasy feel on your skin while others will absorb quickly and make your skin feel silky smooth! To find out which one is for you just takes a little bit of research. After a few reviews and recommendations, I settled on the 6.9 oz. tub of Brazil Nut and boy am I happy with my purchase.

I'm not a huge fan of the scents TBS offers but I found out that this particular one has a very faint, soft scent. The little bit of fragrance that I can smell from it is sweet and creamy which is definitely my preference in body products! This body butter absorbs very quickly (I apply it all over after I shower) and doesn't feel like it leaves a film on my skin. The consistency is extremely rich and thick so I feel super luxurious when I'm it smoothing on!

The only think I would change with this body butter is the packaging. I like the cute tub but I think it would be a lot more sanitary if it could be in a squeeze tube with a wide nozzle to expel the product. Other than that, I'm in LOVE and I'm definitely looking to try out more scents!

Some Target Necessities I Picked Up Today

Hello Lovelies!

So today I went to my local Target to browse and pick up a few things. I originally went to grab more stuff from the E.L.F. back to school line like their Neutral Eye Beauty Book and their Smokey Eye Beauty Book but decided against it since I already have enough neutral colors. So instead, I picked up some necessities and things I've been wanting to try out!

1. I LOVE baby wipes. I use them for everything. I use them to freshen up my face or skin on a hot day, to clean up sticky spills, and to wipe my hands clean if they feel dirty. I can pretty much use these bad boys for anything I want. I normally get the unscented version from Up & Up (they're my staples) but I also saw the pack of SUPER CUTE Huggies baby wipes and had to get them. Look at the packaging! It's so bright and colorful!

2. Make up wipes are also necessary for me. I don't use them every day but for those nights when I'm out late and come home exhausted, the only thing I want to do is knock out in my cozy bed. I'll normally lay there for a minute before I feel guilty for not washing my face so I'll pull myself out of bed and trudge towards my bathroom...until I discovered make up cleansing towlettes! I can keep these by my bedside and quickly remove my make up without needing water or a sink and then fall fast asleep guilt free!

I've never used either of these make up wipes before but I figured Up & Up is a pretty trustable budget friendly brand so why not?

I picked up a 30 count pack thats suppose to be comparable to Ponds Clean Sweep for $3.39 and another pack that was slightly more expensive with only 25 towelettes thats suppose to be comparable to Neutrogena's Make-Up Remover for $3.49. I'll update you guys later on how I feel about these.

3. Lastly I picked up some cotton rounds for my new oil cleanser and my staple deep conditioner, Aussie 3 Minute Miracle Moist Deeeeep Conditioner. I don't know what my hair would do without it in the hot and dry desert I live in.

Thanks for reading!
