I took a few snap shots of the products I have been obsessed with during the past month and wanted to share them with you.
So let's start off with my hair care products and tools that I obsessed with.
The Sprunch spray by Aussie has been a re-discovered gem. After I shower I brush my hair lightly and spray this product all over my hair, sprunch it up a bit and let it dry. It keeps my natural curls in place and makes my hair look like I actually curled my hair with a hot tool. The teasing comb is from a brand called amped up that can be found at any Sally's Beauty Supply store. What can I say it was cheap and does the job efficiently. The hair bands can be found at any H.e.b store if you are in the Texas area or similar bands can be found at any walmart or target store. They were also cheap and I love the fact that they do it what it claims to be "damage free." The little bottle of oil is by a brand called BIOPLUS the oil can be used for the hair and skin. I like to use this after I've flat ironed my hair and I also use this around my cuticles. One drop is more than enough.
I love love love these lotions. They are amazing! I love the fact that they really hydrate my skin and hands without leaving that greasy feeling that most lotions leave behind. These can also be found at any drugstore such as Walgreen's, walmart, target etc..
Over the past month I have absolutely become a fan of some of the Pond's creams especially the nourishing moisturizing cream. I like to use this one to moisturize my face at night and the I use the anti wrinkle cream in the area where I have a lot of fine lines and small wrinkles. As for the New Olay Va Va Vivid cleanser and brush set is in one word "Amazing!" Full review coming soon.
I love the elf cosmetics brand but this past month I became a true fan of these two products in particular. The elf makeup remover cleansing cloths work great in removing all of my makeup and even gets most of my waterproof mascara off. The elf eye refresher you see pictured has become part of my holy grail products. Once applied in the under eye area it leaves such a cool refreshing gel like feeling and I did notice a difference within the first week of using it. I noticed some of the puffiness in that area a little less and my dark circles did lighten up. Although I must admit my dark circles are not that severe (not too dark) which is why I believe this product worked for me so quickly. I cannot tell you if it would work for you if you have extremely dark circles. All you can do is buy it and try it out. At under $5 dollars its not too much of a loss if it doesn't work.
I personally don't really like using my expensive perfumes every single day but I do like to smell good. Who doesn't? LoL That being said I am a big fan of body sprays and splashes. But these two in particular were used all month long. The axe one is a little more muskier that the secret one but nonetheless still an awesome body spray. The body spray by Secret actually reminds me of the Dolce and Gabbana perfume Light Blue. It is such a fresh smelling scent I can see myself using this one all summer long. Both are under $5 dollars so they're not only budget friendly they smell so so so good!
This body scrub works so well. Leaves my skin feeling super soft and even though it says Almond & Honey to me it smells like yummy cherries. So every time I shower I exfoliate my skin with this scrub and I feel like I'm showering in a tub full of maraschino cherries.
I hope my products finds and reviews help you if you've been interested in these particular products or products similar to them. I always welcome questions, comments and suggestions. Hope you all had an awesome week and have an even better weekend.

Hey Dolls and gents,
I have to say that my everyday life has definitely gotten in the way of keeping my blog going everyday. I apologize for neglecting my blog posts and for not answering your comments and emails sooner. I'm not even going to make any excuses. But I do promise to get back to it and start grinding some blog posts out. I have a several new posts and new products reviews that will be going up this week. I hope everyone is having a great week. Memorial weekend is coming up and I know people will be having parties and bbq's, just remember to drink responsibly and keep a watchful eye on your kiddos...
My family and I will be going to Sea World (San Antonio) this weekend to enjoy a day full of fun in the sun and will also be celebrating my husbands 30th birthday. I will definitely be taking pics and possibly small video clips so that I can take you all along with me. We are total fans of Sea World ( San Diego) we practically spent all last summer there. We definitely got our moneys worth out of our annual passes last year. So I will definitely be reviewing this place this weekend for those of you that are planning a trip to San Antonio or for those that live here that haven't been there yet.
If you're interested in adding some travel sized makeup brushes to your collection. I found these at Target a few days ago. I actually own a few Sonia Kashuk brushes and they are really great quality, and very affordable. This particular set was only $12.99 and its perfect for travel, your purse or for your regular use. It comes with a dual-fiber face brush that can be used for foundation, powders, or buffing out bronzers and blushes etc. It also comes with a shader brush, crease brush and an angled liner brush. But I actually use that brush to fill in my brows. I love this set and the price is perfect for my budget.
These are limited edition so I wouldn't expect them to be around for very long. So if you can't see yourself living without them hurry up and go get them at your local Target.
If you've been in the market for some new brushes I really hope you found this post helpful.
