How fun is December? Shopping and decorating and parties? Yes, please! The holidays and the parties that come with them are in full swing right now and I love it! I have my best friend’s Christmas party tomorrow night. I was just deliberating on a few dresses this morning but I am still torn on exactly what I am going to wear. I am, however, all set on the beauty front thanks to my latest Babbleboxx! It came last week and I am obsessed with the products. I get to do a lot of cool things for A Little Glitter but my favorite is when I get to review new beauty items!
I am like a kid on Christmas when my Babbleboxx arrives. The gang there always curates the best items and I know everything inside is going to be fantastic. I have learned that I can’t do an unboxing with my Daughter around though because she is over my shoulder trying to claim the products for herself (and who could blame her). This box especially would have been a goner with Katy Perry perfume and lightly pigmented chapsticks inside. Those have her name written all over them. Thankfully, she was not home when it arrived so I got a chance to test and play with the products on my own. Here are the items included in my latest Babbleboxx and my thoughts on each:
ChapStick® Total Hydration Moisture + Tint
Last year I discovered ChapStick® Total Hydration and it became a purse essential instantly. I love that it is made with 100% naturally sourced ingredients. Just when I thought I had my go-to lip product ChapStick® takes things up a notch by including tint! You guys have no idea how excited I am about this! I have mentioned in the past that I feel like my lips have a slight bluish tint to them that makes me looks like a corpse (especially in Winter with my pale skin). I have to use some sort of lip stain or something at all times in order to feel normal. ChapStick® Total Hydration Moisture + Tint gives just a hint of color while keeping your lips beautiful and healthy!
ChapStick® Total Hydration Conditioning Lip Scrub
Also included in my BabbleBoxx was a conditioning scrub from ChapStick® that I am wild about. As soon as you screw the lid off you get a whiff of it’s fresh, minty scent. It is made with Sugar Crystals, Maracuja and Coconut Oil, Shea Butter and Vitamin E that will leave your lips silky and smooth!
I have always known that exfoliating in Winter is key but never thought to do it to my lips before! Once I was finished with this scrub I topped my lips off with a coat of the ChapStick® Total Hydration Moisture + Tint and
Katy Perry’s Mad Love Fragrance
I love Katy Perry and her beauty, strength and energy. She has this great, playful style and it is reflected in her latest fragrance. This is not your Mama’s heavy, rose-filled perfume from the 80’s. This scent is light and fruity with a touch of peonies coming through.
Katy’s Application Tip: “I never spritz on my skin. I always spritz and walk into it and I like to spray on my hair.”
MarulaOil Rare Oil Perfecting Hairspray
In the Winter hairspray is essential for keeping down all those baby hairs that stand up due to static. I dread using it usually because just one spritz too much for me and the front of my hair is crunchy and stiff. That is not the case with MarulaOil Rare Oil Perfecting Hairspray.
This product is a flexible, layerable hairspray that replenishes hair while it holds. It is infused with pure, cold-pressed marula oil and delivers protective antioxidants and oleic acid for instant taming, softness and manageability.
Dr. Brandt. 3-D Filler Mask
I love Dr. Brandt’s line of products and I have spoken about many of them on A Little Glitter in the past. I actually had the chance to meet him a few years ago before he passed away and I was really impressed by how intelligent and kind he was. He was so knowledgeable and passionate about skin care and I think that is reflected in his products because they work so well. They really are the gold standard and this 3-D Filler Mask is a perfect example of that.
The packaging on this product (and all of Dr. Brandt’s products) is so sleek. Included in the box is the mask and a brush to apply it with. This mask is a leave on so you brush it on, pat it in to your skin and then don’t rinse it off afterwards.
You, my lucky readers, can receive 20% off of the 3-D Filler Mask using the code BABBLE3D on drbrandtskincare.com!
