Relax Away Essentials Bath Bombs

I’ve talked about bath bombs on my blog quite a bit. I think I buy more bath bombs than makeup. As of lately anyway. I can’t help myself. I’m forever running around doing way more than I need to be doing. By the end of the day the only thing that truly helps me to unwind is a nice hot bath. Regardless of how warm it is outside. There are only a handful of shops that I truly enjoy. So I’m always excited when I find a new one. I don’t even remember how I found Relax Away Essentials, but man am I glad that I did! You’ve probably seen me mention them on my Instagram account already. But now I’m going to show you just a few of my purchases.

I love that they are local(ish). I love their fun new releases. I love that they also make CBD bath bombs. Some days I really need the extra relaxation. Other days I just want pretty bath water so a regular bath bomb will do. They always smell so good! The most recent bath bomb I used was Mermaid Life. My husband came home from work and said the house smelled so good. It was the Mermaid Life Bath Bomb. He couldn’t believe it. He thought I lit a candle or something. I was like ‘Nope, it’s all me, baby!’ Hahaha!

If I had to pick a favorite I’d have to go with the Gnome Grown Bath Bomb. That one contains CBD. I so wish they had more of those. I absolutely loved it! It was the most relaxing bath that I’ve ever had. It might even be my favorite bath bomb ever! Now all I have are memories…

Relax Away Essentials is a cute online shop. If you’re stuck in the house and find yourself moping around a lot, treat yourself! Seriously, one of these will surely lift your spirits. Don’t believe me? Check out this Tiger King Bath Bomb! How can you not laugh while plopping one of those bad boys into your tub? I need to try that one next.

So what have you been doing to keep busy while at home? I hope you’re all staying safe!

Derma E Vitamin C Best Sellers

Derma E Vitamin C Best Sellers

I know that I said in my last post that things would remain normal around here and then I sort of took off for a few weeks. There were times where I’d come to sit down at my vanity and felt that this was the last place I needed to be. It just didn’t feel right. Then I found myself stressing and getting anxious and thought maybe this is exactly what I needed after all. I keep trying to go about life as usual, but then I feel guilty. Is that what I’m supposed to be doing? I don’t even know anymore. I do know that I’m doing my part by staying home. Once a week my husband goes out on a grocery store run, but that’s the only time any of us leave the house. I’ve been going for walks with my son again so that we get out and get some air/exercise. It’s been good for us. It helps me to stay positive. So I’m going to try and be more productive around here.

Before all of this started I received a nice little package from Derma E. It included a few of their Vitamin C Best Sellers. Here is what was included…

  • Vitamin C Gentle Daily Cleansing Paste
  • Vitamin C Concentrated Serum
  • Vitamin C Bright Eyes Hydro Gel Patches

The Vitamin C Gentle Daily Cleansing Paste helps reduce the appearance of uneven skin tone and blemishes while enhancing your skin’s natural glow. It contains ancient rice and golden turmeric. The Vitamin C Concentrated Serum is a high-potency serum that penetrates deeply providing essential hydration. It contains hyaluronic acid, aloe, and vitamin e. The Vitamin C Bright Eyes Hydro Gel Patches claim to brighten, hydrate, and improve the appearance of the under eye area. It contains allantoin, caffeine, and vitamin c and b3.

The Vitamin C Gentle Daily Cleansing Paste and Vitamin C Bright Eyes Hydro Gel Patches are both new to me products. So far I can say that I’m loving the gel patches. I love gel patches in general, but these feel extra nice. They’ve really made a difference on my tired, stressed eyes these days. I’ll have to share a photo of me using them in my Instagram stories the next time I use them.

Have you tried anything from the Derma E Vitamin C Line?

*I received these products complimentary. I was not paid or compensated in any way to write this review. All opinions are completely my own.

Swatch

Every time I see a new Sugarpill sparkle infused matte lipstick I get excited thinking I’m going to get another Trinket. I absolutely love their lipsticks and their sparkle infused mattes are my favorite! So of course I would buy Doll Up.

Sugarpill Liquid Lip Color in Doll Up is described as a rose with baby blue and gold sparkles. I did have to build up my swatch quite a bit to get the color to show. I’m not sure if I received a bad batch or what, but this thing was completely dried out. After lots of work I was able to get it to apply somewhat evenly on my lips. However, it was very uncomfortable. It was dry and gritty. The shade itself is absolutely beautiful, but unfortunately it’s nothing like the other sparkle infused mattes I have tried. You can see Sugarpill Liquid Lip Color in Doll Up in action below.

Overall, I’d have to say that I’m pretty disappointed in this shade. Which is a shame because it’s so pretty! But for $18.00 I expect to get at least a few uses out of it. However, with the last 2 shades I’ve tried I was barely able to get just one use. It has honestly put me off of trying more shades. And I had my eye on a few of the newer ones.

Have you tried any of Sugarpill’s sparkle infused matte shades? What are your thoughts?
