Hey guys, been a while! I couldn’t post because my Lyme Disease was bad again >: (read about my struggle with Lyme Disease here). *Apparently* the meds I was on to help control infections were ineffective, so I felt much worse than I should be feeling. My doc switched me to some new ones and says I should be feeling great soon. Besides that being amazeballs excellent news it also means more blog posts!!

Next posts coming up:

  • Lipsi Aphrodite Powder review
  • The Body Shop Tea Tree Mask review
  • Coastal Scents 88 Shimmer Palette Review

If I get my way, you’ll see a new post every day ^_^ and if that happens you’ll know I’m feeling GOOD ^_^

Beauty Samples Swap!


Around the December holidays, my blogger friend Natasha from Confessions of a Skincare Junkie and I talked about our first world problem (having far too many beauty product samples) so we agreed to swap!! I sent her my package late ; _ ; (click here to see what I sent Natasha!), and honestly she gave me WAY better samples! In fact, she sent me 2 packages!! What a total sweetheart!

image is a photo of 3 clear packages with beauty samples on the right and sheet masks from asia on the left. The image reads: everything packaged neatly; and on the lower right corner below a bag with a heart shape on it the image reads: cute.
All arrived safely! I’m so excited ^_^

image is a photo of 4 packages of sheet masks from asia. They also have post its translating a few Chinese characters. Upper left is a white mask package with a giant orange graphic (no post it); upper right is a red eye mask package with a post it that reads beauty, white, eye; lower left is a white package with aloe plant graphics (post it reads: this came from our local korean grocer, $2), and the lower right is a white package with green and white flower graphics (post it reads: white).
All mask products!

  • Epielle Facial Essence Mask Firming and Lifting with Vitamin C
  • Watson’s Whitening and Moisturizing Eye Mask (post it says: Beauty, White, Eye)
  • Epielle Facial Essence Mask Green Tea and Aloe (post it says: These came from our local Korean grocer, $2 ea)

The ones on the left are a goldenrod orangish yellow, and the ones on the right are white. Text in the photo reads (top): Tiny Little Friends; (bottom) Sulwhasoo Samples
I’ve never used a Sulwhasoo product, so I’m excited to try these.
