Billionaire Teeth Whitening Pen review

Happy November! I have been testing out a lot of new beauty products this month, so I am excited to share my favorites with you in this monthly round-up, beauty bag post! Of course, I have several nail polish hues I am in love with too, you can check out my Chanel review, Dior review, and Londontown Gel Genius review.

Now, let’s chat about these new beauty products I love! So, if you have been following along for awhile, you know I quit coffee several years ago. Although I don’t drink coffee everyday, I do order it at restaurants if I am eating brunch, and when Starbucks comes out with new flavors I feel compelled to taste! haha Other than that, I don’t really drink coffee anymore. That being said, I still consume food and drinks which stain teeth. I drink tea a few times per week, and I enjoy tooth staining foods such as tomatoes and carrots. This means the expensive tooth whitening treatment my dentist gave me back in 2013 is no longer visible. My teeth are stained again!

I was thrilled when Billionaire Teeth Whitening contacted me a couple of months ago to test out their whitening pen. It’s an affordable way to whiten teeth at home. My dentist charged me north of $600, while this pen is nicely priced at under $50. I also happen to have a discount code to share with you! You can pick up your own pen online here, and use code BAF to save 10% of your treatment purchase. I hope you love your results as much as I do!

Be sure to use my link above to purchase the Billionaire Teeth Whitening Pen-you don’t want to purchase it elsewhere and end up with a counterfeit product!

Colleen Rothschild hand cream review

colleen rothschild hand cream review

Colleen Rothschild is a beauty brand I love and trust. So, when I needed to purchase some new hand cream, I decided to try hers out! I am so glad I did! I love this! The hand cream by Colleen Rothschild is non-greasy, and it adds just the right amount of moisture to help protect and repair dry hands. This is really good hand cream! I am hooked! As you can tell from this photo, I have already started to use my tube, and chances are, I will run out of it quickly. I am always washing my hands, cleaning my house, and in need of some hand cream. This is a workhorse, love it! You can snag your own online here.

EOS Lip Balm review all flavors

In addition to hand cream, I am always in need of lip balm. The climate here in the San Francisco Bay Area is quite drying, so beauty products which help combat the dry air are a must. This lip balm by EOS is easy to use. There are a few scents to choose from, and they smell really yummy! There isn’t any waxy taste, or chemical taste; they taste pretty natural. I am addicted to the pink one! I know I will plow through these quickly. I keep one in my purse, one in my beauty kit at home, and one in my gym bag. Can’t leave home without one nearby!

Garnier Micellar Eye Makeup Remover Pads review

Are you always running out of cotton squares? I change my nail color so often, I am always running out of my cotton squares! Thankfully, Garnier sent me these fabulous eye makeup remover pads which don’t require a cotton square. They are their own pad! I love an all-in-one product! These Garnier Micellar Eye Makeup remover pads are a game changer. They make makeup removal sooooo easy! Love! I will never go without a package of these, they are a must-have!

What’s in my beauty bag May 2018

May is here! This month we transition from spring into more of a summer weather pattern. As the temperatures begin to rise, we all need to adjust our beauty routine to stay balanced. While I am still using my favorite daytime Elemis face cream, Revive eye cream, and Revive neck cream, I am switching up my fragrance, lipstick, and evening skin care.

It’s time to make sure our legs are smooth and shaved! As the temperatures soar, I will be reaching for shorts, skirts, and dresses. This means I need smooth legs! I love EOS shave cream products, they are amazing! The sensitive formula contains cucumber, aloe, wild oats, and lavender butter. It’s great for sensitive skin!

If you have dry skin, which I end up with later in summer, this is what you need! This formula contains Shea Butter, coconut oil, and mango butter. Love that! It’s perfect for nourishing dry skin while allowing you a close shave. That is perfection.

Givenchy’s “Live Irresistible Blossom Crush” edt is a beautiful, light floral fragrance for warm weather. It offers notes of musk, pink peony, rose, and cocoa bean. It’s perfect for both spring and summer! I’m reaching for this scent now everyday.

I love to lighten up my lipstick in warm warmer. This beautiful plumping, moisturizing, and soft pink lipstick from Givenchy is my new obsession. It’s fabulous! It’s actually more of a lip balm which naturally reacts to your pH and creates a natural color which enhances your lips. Addicted!

So for my evening skin care routine, I am keeping things simple. I am still using the same neck cream from my daytime routine, but for my face cream I have started using Fresh rose deep hydration cream and toner. This is perfect for my skin since it tends to get dry in the warm weather from sun exposure. The cream brings intense 24-hour hydration for dry skin. The toner refines pores, and uses real rose petals! It’s the perfect summer floral! Love!

pictured: Flash Bath c/o Yuni /

This is the season for camping! I’m troop leader for my daughter’s girl scout troop, plus we love to get outdoors as a family. This means I don’t always have access to a shower or bath. Yeah, don’t hate. đŸ˜‰ This “Flash Bath” by Yuni is the best thing since sliced bread. No joke! It freshens you up as if you took a real shower! It’s perfect for camping, long air travel, or days when you might be running short on time and should have taken a shower; but didn’t. You need this. You seriously need this.

Well, there you have it! All my favorite new beauty products for the transition from spring into summer. I will be using these now, and well into the summer season. What are some of your favorite beauty products for spring into summer?

EOS shave cream review

EOS shave cream review

EOS shave cream is a fabulous, affordable way to smoother legs! Unless you have lasered all your hair off, chances are, you shave your legs. These four fabulous smelling shaving creams from EOS are a great way to shave in the shower!

Since I grew up as a competitive swimmer, shaving was an important ritual. Before every important swim meet, such as state championships or nationals, I would shave my legs and my arms. Over time, I ended up testing out several shaving creams throughout the years, so when I find one which is conditioning, and non-drying, I take notice.

EOS shaving cream is a rich, non-foaming shave cream which allows you to see what you are shaving, while providing the exact protection you need to keep your legs safe from your razor. This shave cream is packed with conditioning oils, shea butter, vitamin E, and vitamin C. As a result, my legs are smooth and stubble-free. Love!

One feature I love with EOS shave cream is that the bottle is a pump. This makes it really easy to use in the shower since you don’t have to worry about the bottle slipping out of hands during application. The pump really is ingenious.

My favorite scent is the Tropical Fruit, followed by Vanilla Bliss. That being said, all four scents are amazing. I also love that EOS shave cream is priced under $5 each! Love that!

You can find EOS shave cream online here. Which scent is your favorite?
