Mineral Hygienics Review & 10% Off Coupon Code!

I have never given mineral makeup a chance before, but I have always wanted to. Mineral makeup is usually better for your skin, contains natural healthy ingredients, and give a more subtle natural look. The one thing that I was afraid of was that mineral foundation would not give me the coverage I need. However, I have heard nothing but good things about mineral makeup, so when I got the chance to try Mineral Hygienics I couldn't wait.

Some of the benefits of Mineral Hygienics:
  • Free of harmful fillers, stabilizers, dyes, perfumes, talc, and petro-chemicals that are often inundated in cosmetic products.
  • Rich in both Titanium Dioxide and Zinc Oxide, a naturally occurring mineral that blocks harmful UVA and UVB sun rays to prevent sun induced skin damage.
  • Reduces the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and imperfections. 
  • Can cover a wide range of skin imperfections, even sun spots, rosacea and acne are able to be covered giving you a clean clear complexion. 
  • Never tests on animals.
  • Recommended by Doctors, Surgeons, and Dermatologists. 
  • They give back 75% to charity.

I received a Mineral Hygienics Starter Kit. It was packaged with care and arrived in an adorable pink organza bag. They even sent me a little treat to go along with my makeup.

The Started Kit came with two shades of foundation, a mineral enhancer, finishing powder, and a kabuki brush. The kit pretty much came with everything I would need for a basic face of makeup. I like that it comes with two shades of foundation, so I can mix them, as my skin gets darker. I think the packaging is really nice looking and simple. Each pot of makeup comes with a sifter on top, so you can easily use only the amount you need at a time. This not only prevents waste, but is also more hygienic. 

I got the foundations in Medium Light and Medium, the finishing powder in Silk Translucent, and the mineral enhancer in Warm Kiss.

I followed the makeup application tips on their website. Pouring each mineral powder onto the inside of the cap, and swirling the kabuki brush lightly around in it, and then applying it onto my face in a circular motion. The foundation comes first, then I use the mineral enhancer on my cheeks, and then finally I swirl the finishing powder around to bring all of the minerals together for a perfect airbrushed look.

I was pleasantly surprised with Mineral Hygienics. They actually cover very well, while still looking natural and non-cakey. I now realize the heavy liquid foundations that I usually wear were actually aging me by settling into my fine lines and pores, while the mineral foundations sit on top of my skin and give me a youthful glow. The shades of foundation I chose, Medium Light and Medium are perfect for me. The mineral enhancer in Warm Kiss is a great bronzer, that will be perfect for dusting on my face, shoulders, and chest during the summer for a sun-kissed look. The finishing powder completes the look, giving my skin a soft flawless airbrushed finish.

Overall, I am loving these products. They are great for every day use, and are my go-to choice for days I want to wear light makeup, such as when I am going to be spending time outdoors or exercising. They are long lasting, and affordable. Best of all, while wearing these I can rest assured that my skin isn't being clogged or affected by harmful chemicals.

If you are interested in purchasing anything from Mineral Hygienics, then you will want to use the coupon code GlamourGirl for 10% off your entire purchase!

It has a tight form fitting top half with a strapless sweetheart neckline, and the bottome half is big, dramatic, and full of organza ruffles. With this dress you get the best of both worlds sexiness, and playfulness, over-the-top glamour, and simplicity.  Not only will you look and feel beautiful wearing this dress, but you will also have so much fun in it. Best of all it's such a unique dress, that you will really stand out and everyone will remember it.

It is absolutely perfect for a beach wedding. I can just imaging after the wedding, frolicking on the beach in this dress, and not even being uncomfortable. It has an adorable sweetheart neckline, empire waist, intricate beading details, and a long flowing train. It has a laced up corseted back, so you will look just as fabulous in the front as you do in the back. Best of all, since this dress is more casual, you could totally get away with wearing it for other occasions after your wedding.

One Fur All Pet House Candle Review & Giveaway!

If you have pets, then your home may not smell as fresh as you think it does. This is especially true if you have cats that use a litter box or dogs that are outside a lot. Let's face it, pets have accidents, they pee and poop in the carpet, and sometimes they just plain stink. Sometimes it's just a light odor that lingers in your home, and you may not notice it until you've been away from home for awhile. One thing is for certain, your guests will definitely notice the stench whether they tell you or not.

I like for my home to smell good and have a nice warm and inviting, cozy atmosphere. That is why I always have a candle burning when I'm home. I love for my home to fill up with my favorite scents and the flickering flame of a candle provides a relaxing and comfy ambiance.

I also happen to be a pet owner, and while my dog doesn't usually smell bad. I can admit that sometimes my home doesn't smell as good as I would like. So, when I found out about One Fur All Pet House Candles that are specifically made for homes with pets, I knew I had to try one out for myself.

I chose the Pumpkin Spice Pet House Candle, because I love toasty fall/winter scents and pumpkin anything is always a favorite of mine. This candle did not disappoint, it smells just as you would expect pumpkin spice to smell like. It's a very yummy scent, that makes me want to eat a slice of pumpkin pie.

The jar that the candle is in is very nice. It's made out of glass and comes with a lid. It's a perfect jar for keeping things in, once the candle runs out. I also love the design on the jar, it has leaves, pumpkins, and adorable little paw prints on it.

I have been using this candle non-stop since I received it. Today, I burned it for hours and hours, and the wax still has barely gone down at all. I think it is the slowest burning candle I've ever used. Best of all, it has a strong scent that really fills up my living room and makes it smell like I'm baking something delicious in the oven.

Some other benefits of Pet House Candles are:

  • 100% natural soy wax.
  • Hand-poured.
  • Dye free,
  • Made in the USA.
  • Odor Neutralizer.
  • Infused with essential oils.
  • Burns for approximately 70 hours.
One Fur All is truly a candle company for pet lovers, and not just because they make candles designed to neutralize pet odors, but because they are advocates for rescue and adoption. They have donated countless hours to help care for rescued animals and promote their adoption. They have also created a Rescue Fundraiser Program to help non-profit, no-kill rescues to raise funds to pay for vaccinations, medication, and surgical care.
