Sky Organics Bubble Box: January 2018

Sky Organics Bubble Box: January 2018

Last month I mentioned on my Instagram how excited I was about Sky Organics new Bubble Box. Bubble Box is a monthly subscription of bath goodies delivered right to your door! Every month you will receive 1 bath bomb, 1 shower steamer, 1 bubble bar, and a surprise. Sometimes it’s a bath bomb, sometimes it’s a bubble bar, and sometimes it’s both! It costs $16.95 a month and you can cancel at any time! Let’s take a look at what’s inside a typical Bubble Box!

January’s box is called the Champagne Box. This is what was inside…

  • Bath Bomb: 5 oz Lavender Champagne – A sparkling mix of lavender oil, effervescent citrus notes, and sweet vanilla.
  • Shower Steamer: Lavender Luxury – Lavender lover’s dream.
  • Bubble Scoop: Strawberry Shake – Vine ripened strawberries combined with notes of juicy orange and peach nectar.
  • Mini Bath Bomb: Love Potion – A sweet bouquet of citrus and berries.

I love Sky Organics bath bombs. I’ve had the pleasure of trying them on a few occasions. And let me tell you, I was pretty sad when I ran out. What I love about them is that they’re hand made, 100% natural, they don’t contain a lot of ingredients, and they smell amazing! My skin always feels so soft after soaking in the tub with one of their bath bombs. They’re not that messy either. Of course you’ll have to rinse the tub afterward, but it didn’t stain or anything.

I like that they include shower steamers and bubble bars as well. It’s a nice variety of bath goodies to keep things interesting. My only real complaint is that when the box arrives you really don’t know what’s what. I have to visit their website to get a break down of what’s inside the box. It’s not really a big deal, but I think it would be helpful if they included a card so that you know what kind of bath bomb/shower steamer/bubble bar is inside.

I love the idea of a monthly subscription box for bath goodies. I always seem to run out of bath bombs or bubbles and forget to replenish my stash when I’m out. So it’s always a pleasant surprise to open my mail box to one of these wonderful boxes.

Esqido Lashes

I’ve been applying makeup for as long as I can remember. I’m definitely not a pro and I’m sure I make a lot of mistakes in a lot of people’s eyes. Personally, I’ve always viewed makeup as a form of art. And as my grade school art teacher once told me, there are no mistakes in art! It’s something that has always stayed with me. So I just do what feels right for ME. Mostly I play it safe. I do experiment with a lot of color, but for the most part I play it safe. Lately I’ve been stepping outside of my comfort zone and have been practicing applying false lashes. Some days I glue my eyelashes together and other days I manage to apply them just right. I guess it takes some getting used to?

I have managed to successfully apply false lashes a few times. I’m sure you can tell which looks I’ve used them in because my lashes are fuller and more dramatic. I have always loved looks that include false lashes and I’m hoping to start including more of my own. Starting with Esqido Mink Lashes!

Esqido Lashes

I’m going to start off talking about the website. For a beginner like myself, I found their lash guide to be extremely helpful. They ask a series of questions about your eyes and natural lashes as well as how you plan to use your lashes. Then they list a few they think would fit your style and needs. I’d have to say it was pretty spot on for me. The lashes they suggested ended up being the perfect fit.

I also appreciate how they list details for each set of lashes including volume and length. They even include photos so that you can get an idea of how each set of lashes would look on you. There are also customer reviews just in case you need a little more help deciding.

I ended up choosing one of the lashes the lash guide suggested. Night Bouquet just seemed like the perfect fit. These were very easy to apply even for a beginner like myself. They felt very comfortable and fairly lightweight. I also think they look more natural. Obviously my natural lashes aren’t that long and full, but the quality of these lashes really shows and that’s what I mean by more natural.

I’m also really digging their Companion Eyelash Glue. I love that it comes with a wand for easy application. It’s also thin enough that it doesn’t apply a ton of glue. It really does help you to apply the perfect amount. It’s also latex free and I didn’t detect a scent.

You can see the Esqido Night Bouquet Mink Lashes in action below. So far I have used them in 2 separate looks (both shown below).

Overall, I’d have to say that I love these lashes. I love everything about them. The packaging is pretty and elegant. The lashes are great quality and really do look and feel more natural. And even though I’m still just a beginner, I didn’t have any issues applying these.

Blaq Dual Sided Wipes

Blaq Dual Sided Wipes

I have an Alex drawer full of makeup removing wipes. I mostly use them for removing swatches or lipstick. I hardly ever use them on my face because I just don’t like the way my skin feels afterward. I’ve yet to meet a wipe that has left my skin feeling clean without irritating it. That is until I tried the Blaq Dual Sided Wipes.

I know that sounds like an ad, but I assure you, these wipes are the real deal! These nifty wipes are dual sided. The smooth side can be used to cleanse your skin. It’s enriched with activated charcoal and gently removes surface level makeup and dirt. The textured side exfoliates skin for a deeper clean. Blaq claims it works like a magnet drawing out impurities and dead skin cells.

I didn’t detect a scent. That’s a huge plus for me. The cleansing side did a pretty good job at removing makeup including eye makeup. I didn’t even have to rub my eyes that much. One or two wipes and my eye makeup was gone! My eyes can be very sensitive to wipes and usually tear up during makeup removal. That wasn’t at all the case with these wipes. The exfoliating side is where the real magic happens. I gently exfoliated my skin paying more attention to my t-zone as the instructions suggested. I could see the dirt and stuff left behind on the wipe afterward. My skin? It was left feeling silky smooth!

I can’t say enough good things about these wipes. I love them! While I wouldn’t rely solely on a wipe to cleanse my skin, these do the job just the same. With the added bonus of exfoliation. And the best part is that they play nice with my super sensitive skin! I can also see these coming in handy for travel. They’re so convenient. No need to bring cleansers and exfoliators. I especially like using these the night before I plan to do a look for the blog. Come morning I get to start with a nice smooth base that is radiant and looks healthy. These are a keeper for sure!
