La Fresh hello Eco-Beauty Lip Treat Review

Review: Stila Mango Crush Lip and Cheek Stain

stila-mango-crushGuest review from beauty blogger Beauty Girl Musings.

Stila Mango Crush Lip & Cheek Stain has become my latest Summer beauty crush, and I think you’ll discover the same when you decide to try it for yourself– trust me, this is a must-have!

A little confession: I’m a full-face makeup girl (primer, foundation, powder, blush, multiple eye shadows, liner, mascara– you get the idea). Yes, everyday I go through my routine, and it’s just a habit to apply everything. In my defense, during the Summer months I choose more season-friendly colors that will withstand the heat, and never, ever do I look like I just stepped out of a Vegas stage show.

Ok, confession time is over– moving on… Read more

Review: Sephora’s Guava Passion Body Scrub

Guest beauty review from beauty blogger I Heart Heels.

This summer, I don’t know about you, but I’ve been “showering” myself with all kinds of beachy scents that smell absolutely amazing. The beach is quite possibly my favorite spot in the world to just sit, relax and think about life. Lately, I’ve been finding myself retreating to the Bahamas or some far away island in the tropics only to snap back to Earth quickly and realize I’ve almost used all of my precious new body wash, ha!

The latest on my summer must-have list is Sephora’s (my go-to beauty store) Guava Passion Body Scrub ($8). The scrub is new to the collection and over the past few weeks has left my skin soft as can be (after all, it does have Aloe Vera and JoJoba!) So what makes it smell so delicious? It mixes guava, mango, pineapple, lily of the valley, monoi de Tahiti, vanilla, and musk for the perfect shower concoction (sounds very similar to that nice, cool drink I like to order each summer, no?)  Read more
