Tula skin care products c/o Tula: Tula Purifying Face Cleanser / Tula Exfoliating Treatment Mask / Tula Hydrating Day & Night Cream

Have you ever discovered something on Instagram and wanted to try it? Sometimes I do! Tula skin care popped up on my Instagram feed one day, and it sounded extremely intriguing! Since I am trying to grow old gracefully, my first line of defense against aging is to use the right skin care. So I am always on the hunt!

Tula skin care uses probiotic technology, which is something that instantly caught my attention. I had to try it out! Tula was kind enough to send me a few travel size samples to test out on my skin. I am so excited to share my experience with you!

The Tula Purifying Face Cleanser is gentle, yet leaves my skin squeaky clean. It really did a good job of cleaning out my pores. Since this is a travel size, it is going straight into my travel skin care bag. It will be perfect for keeping my skin clean when I travel. I always feel like air travel leaves my skin dry, dirty, and in need of special care.

This Tula Exfoliating Mask is a relaxing way to deep clean skin. I love the deep clean results of it! This too is travel size, so it will be a great way to keep my skin deep cleaned while I am on the road. I recommend using this mask once a week. I like to use a mask on Sunday evenings to brighten up my skin for the week.

Tula has a great skin care product! The Tula Hydrating Day & Night Cream is two creams in one. Instead of needing two separate jars of cream for morning and night, this cream offers the lightweight texture needed for daytime, with the hydrating power needed overnight. Love that!

This is the perfect skin cream to use daily; and this size is perfect for travel. I am obsessed with this skin cream!

I definitely need to upgrade to full size products of Tula skin care. You can find the entire collection online here, and they have a fabulous starter kit you can test out too.

Have you tried Tula skin care? What are your thoughts?

Elemis x Misha Nonoo Luxury Travel Essentials for her review

Elemis x Misha Nonoo travel kit review

travel kit c/o Elemis: Limited Edition Elemis x Misha Nonoo travel kit

Raise your hand if you have had beauty products confiscated by TSA? My hand is up! I lost over $100 worth of beauty products flying back from Dallas last spring because I had “too many products” in my carry-on bag. If only I had this fabulous travel kit by Elemis when I was flying, nothing would have been confiscated!

This compact travel kit is the brilliant result of a collaboration between Elemis and Misha Nonoo. It is a limited edition travel kit which contains all of the luxury skin care essentials needed for travel; without having to worry about not passing inspection by TSA. Love that!

The Elemis x Misha Nonoo Luxury Travel Essentials for her kit contains everything we need for maintaining our skin care routine while travelling. Inside the kit you will find Elemis’s Pro-Radiance Cream Cleanser (1 oz.), Balancing Lavender Toner (1.6 oz.), Papaya Enzyme Peel (0.5 oz.),  White Flowers Eye & Lip Makeup Remover (0.9 oz.), Pro-Collagen Marine Cream (1 oz.), Frangipani Monoi Shower Cream (1.6 oz.), and Elemis Frangipani Monoi Body Oil (1.1 oz.).

All of these products are TSA approved; and the pretty makeup bag designed by Misha Nonoo has plenty of room for other items such as a toothbrush, toothpaste, dental floss, comb; and anything else you might want to throw in there!

My next trip will be a long weekend in Lake Tahoe, so despite the fact that I won’t be on a plane, I will still pack this travel kit since it will save a lot of space in my suitcase; plus the products are amazing!

You can find the Elemis x Misha Nonoo Luxury Travel Essentials for her kit online here. Where is your next travel destination?

Chanel fall 2017 nail polish collection review

Chanel fall 2017 nail polish collection from left: Chanel Rouge Noir nail polish / Chanel New Dawn nail polish / Chanel Horizon Line nail polish

The new Chanel fall 2017 nail polish collection is here! Chanel has included three, beautiful colors for the autumn season this year. My favorite color in the fall collection is “New Horizon.” It is a pale, blue-grey hue which is fresh and unexpected for the fall season. Love that!

The other two colors in the Chanel fall 2017 nail polish are more classic, traditional fall colors. “New Dawn” is a soft neutral hue which is a cool, pale beige or nude. “Rouge Noir” is a vampy, red-black color which is dark, mysterious, and ideal for the dark hues we are seeing in the fall 2017 apparel collections.

Each one of the Chanel fall 2017 nail polish collection colors is a stand-alone hue which serves a different purpose. I love all three! Without further ado, here are my reviews and swatches of each one of the Chanel fall 2017 nail polish colors from the autumn collection.

Chanel fall 2017 nail polish: Chanel Horizon Line nail polish fall 2017

chanel nail polish fall 2017 review

Chanel Horizon Line nail polish for fall 2017 is my favorite color from the autumn nail polish collection. I love the grey-blue hue which acts as a neutral, without being a neutral. Love that!

This is a fresh color other nail polish companies simply do not produce. I love it when Chanel offers original colors which cannot be found elsewhere. It helps makes the polish more special. Horizon Line by Chanel will be an easy color to wear this fall since it contrasts to the dark colors being shown this season, as well as offers a nice blend for fall’s cobalt blue trend. Chanel Horizon Line nail polish will be the color I reach for the most this fall 2017 season.

Chanel Horizon Line nail polish is a great color to wear now, and into the fall 2017 season. The pale grey-blue hue of the polish allows it to play well with the current late summer color palette, as well as move right into the fall 2017 season without clashing with any autumn hues. I plan to wear this nail polish now, and well into the fall season. I am in love!

I tested out Chanel Horizon Line nail polish with one base coat, two coats of color, and no top coat. Horizon Line by Chanel is a cream nail polish and it applies smoothly, without streaking. Since it is part of the Chanel Long-wear collection, Horizon Line by Chanel does not chip easily; and I felt like I did not need a top coat. Love!

Chanel fall 2017 nail polish: Chanel New Dawn nail polish fall 2017

Chanel New Dawn nail polish for fall 2017 is soft beige or nude color. This is the ideal neutral for the autumn season and it is also a great contrast to the dark fall 2017 color palette. New Dawn by Chanel is also a great color to wear now, and into the early fall season. It is a great summer to fall transition color, which makes it a great nail polish wardrobe staple to have on hand. The color is also a classic neutral, so it will be easy to wear with anything. Love that!

To test out Chanel New Dawn nail polish, I used one base coat, two coats of color, and no top coat. Chanel New Dawn is a cream nail polish which applies smoothly and streak-free. It is part of the Chanel Long-wear collection and does not chip easily. No top coat needed! Love that!

Chanel fall 2017 nail polish: Chanel Rouge Noir nail polish fall 2017

Chanel Rouge Noir nail polish for fall 2017 is oh-so-vampy! What was once know as the new Vamp, number 18 has now been named Rouge Noir, and it is the perfect black-red nail polish color. Rouge Noir by Chanel is also a nail polish wardrobe staple. This is a classic, deep, dark red hue which is great to have on hand when you want to be on the edgier side with your nail polish color. I love the mysterious vibe Chanel Rouge Noir offers. This is also a great color to wear with the fall 2017 1970s vintage trend. It seems to be the perfect color to wear with the trend. Love that!

Dark nail polish colors tend to chip easily, but I was pleasantly pleased to see Chanel Rouge Noir nail polish did not chip as easily as it’s counterparts. I tried out Rouge Noir by Chanel with one base coat, two coats of color, and no top coat. This is a cream nail polish which applied smoothly, and did not streak. The color was even, and saturated, with only two coats; this is hard to accomplish with darker polishes. It too is part of the Chanel Long-wear collection, which helps the nail polish not to chip.

The Chanel fall 2017 nail polish collection contains an edgy, yet classic, fall-like vibe with a neutral hue, a vampy color, and a new color invention. There seems to be a color for every occasion, yet all three colors will work well with any fall color palette. I love all three of these nail polish colors for fall 2017 by Chanel!

Which nail polish color is your favorite for the fall 2017 season? Are you loving one color; or more then one color from the collection?
