Review: Yes To Blueberries Age Refresh Facial Towelettes

Hey loves! Today I have another makeup wipe review for you guys! A few weeks ago I reviewed the Simple makeup wipes and one of my readers recommend me these wipes so I did. I've tried the Yes To Cucumber facial wipes before but this was my first time try anything for the Yes To Blueberries line, which targets anti-aging problems. I was really excited to try these wipes but how well did they perform? Keep reading to find out!

What it claims to do: "Yes To Blueberries features products that help improve skin firmness, protect skin, diminish fine lines and wrinkles, and nourish age damaged skin. It's a recipe for youth enhancing goodness!"

Pros:
- Takes off makeup
- Wipe stays wet for a good amount of time
- Soft on skin
- Refreshing
- Moisturizing

Cons:
- Smells horrible

My experience: The first time I used one of these wipes the smell is the first thing I notice. I'm not sure what blueberries smell like but I can tell you that they don't smell like these wipes. Aside from the awful smell the wipes are pretty darn good. The wetness level is average and they leave my face feeling refreshed afterwards.

Would I recommend this to someone? It's a pretty average facial wipe if you ask me. But I would recommend these to someone, that is if you think you can handle the smell.

You can buy the Yes to Blueberries Age Refresh Facial Wipes here.

Have you tried these wipes before? Did you like them?

NOTD: Ombre 2.0

The ombre nail trend has been around for a few seasons now but just yesterday I decided to try out a different way of creating the gradient effect. If you've been following my blog from the start you may remember back when I did my first ombre nails, I showed you guys how I did it back then and now I would like to share another way you can get the same look using a slight different technique. I actually prefer this way better because it looks more natural and it's less messy!

Colors I used: Sinful Colors Sweet Tooth, Essie Play Date, and Zoya Kendal

I added 1-2 layers of each color in a row on a make up  sponge and dabbed repeatedly on my finger nails until the colors transferred onto my nails (I did three applications on each nail). Wait until the polish has dried a little and then seal with a top coat for a smoother finish.

Have you tried ombre nails? Which way do you prefer my first technique or this one?

The Adventures in Macaron Tasting

 I have a special blog post for you guys today but first I want to say Happy Birthday to my older sister and this post is in honor of you! Today's post is on macarons! My older sister started baking macarons recently and now she makes a batch almost every week! I haven't made any myself nor have seen my sister prepare them but I've tasted one from almost every batch so far and have tasted them, so yeah.


This was the first macaron I tasted (ever!) and I really enjoyed it! A lot of people either love or hate macarons but this first batch of macarons made me a macaron lover! The inside was very yummy! I'm not sure what the inside was made out of (maybe, raspberry or strawberry) but it is so far the only macaron she made that has a pink filling in it.


My older sister just made these special Pikachu macarons yesterday for her birthday. These are by far the cutest macarons she's made! The inside contains Nutella which makes these even yummier! She made the faces by using red icing jelly and melting chocolates.

Have you ever had a macaron? Have you ever made any?

Review: LUSH Eau Roma Water

I have another LUSH product to review for you all today. Back last month when I was at the LUSH store the lady was trying to sell me the Tree Tea Water but they only had the larger size (typical) but I didn't want the larger size (because I didn't want invest in a product that I hadn't tried yet) so she said that the Eau Roma Water worked just the same so I decided to get this one instead. I've used almost all of the product and here are my thoughts on it...


What it claims to do? "A gentle rose and lavender tonic for everyday use that helps hydrate dry, sensitive, mature skin without causing it to overreact. Soft, comfortable skin is only a spritz away-eau my!"

Pros:
- Smells good
- Hydrating
- Refreshing
- Vegan

Cons:
- Comes with a spray spritzer (I don't like using spray toners because they're not as effective as regular toners)

My experience: I actually used this product as soon as I got into the car the day I bought it! My first impressions were that it smelled great and that it was refreshing, this wasn't a cool water sort of feel but a bath in a spring water sensation! That night when I got home I used it after I cleansed my face with a cotton round and again I felt like I was being treated at a spa, it is very hydrating! I also love using this when I am out and need a cool mist to refresh my face.

Would I recommend this to someone? Yes! Whether you have dry or oily skin your skin will enjoy this! It's refreshing and will be a great product to have in your bag during summer!

You can buy the LUSH Eau Roma Water here.


Have you tried Eau Rome Water before? What's your favorite toner?
