Orchid Face Products

I just want to start this by giving a HUGE shout out to Lash Girl and H-E-B for doing an amazing giveaway of all this wonderful skin care goodness! I am so grateful to be the winner of the giveaway, thank you thank you!! *High Fives* 

Ok now on to the goodies.... This is the adorable packing, totally loving the bow. It definitely felt like Christmas when my box came in! The packing material is shredded paper, so eco friendly, which I found to be very refreshing! A++++ On the presentation!! 

If you haven't heard of this line of face products before it is exclusively sold at H-E-B. You can select your own personal regimen from a complete line of gentle solutions that address all your specific skin needs! According to H-E-B, Orchid is also formulated to have proactive effects on common conditions of the face such as swelling, dark spots, and enlarged pores. I can not speak to that yet, as I haven't been using the products for any length of time, but I will be sure to post an update in a couple weeks. 

The first item I received is the Orchid Acne Spot Treatment, full sized at 1oz Net Wt. This is going to last a really long time, it's a large tube of acne treatment. I am excited to see if it will work good, but if I don't get a pimple to try this on any time soon I won't complain! :) 

 The next item is an Anti-Aging Eye Roller to help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. This came Full sized at .34 FL OZ. This item I'm actually going to be giving to a family member, because I'm not too concerned with anti aging products at this time :) 

 I am most excited about this item!!! Its the Firming Lift Face Serum. Visibly firms and lifts to improve skin's overall appearance. I have already tried this item and it works great! My face felt rejuvenated, and I noticed the product absorbs quickly which is nice! I look forward to adding this to my daily beauty routine! :) This item came full sized at 2 FL Oz. It will last for a while! 

Last but not least we have the Orchid Thermal Clay Mask. Came full sized at 4 FL OZ. You get tons of product and if it works half as good as it smells, that will be a good thing! The Mask helps to improve your skin's appearance by exfoliating dry skin cells on the surface, revealing newer, younger looking skin underneath. The water-activated heating formula warms the skin and helps relax pores. Sounds like I'm going to have to plan a spa day in the near future!! :)

Overall, I am very impressed with the Orchid Line. At face value the packaging is pretty, the product smells pleasant, for the cost you get a good sized product. I can not speak for the quality yet, but I will be sure to update you all after I've used it long enough to give a fair review.  I start college on Monday so I will be sure to continue posting as often as I can with my new schedule. I hope you all have an AWESOME weekend!! Till Next time gorgeous!!!!!! xoxo

Is That Odd's Anniversary Swag Bag

Hi Ladies. I Was very excited to find the latest Swag Bag from Is that Odd in my mailbox. As always, the contents of my bag were anything but a disappointment.

 A good variety of items, from Eye Cream, to Hair Accessories, and cosmetics. As always it even comes with a really cute Is that odd reusable tote bag (Not Pictured). I will show close up's and swatches of the items below :)

 First item, is a really cute Head band from France Luxe. Its a shiny black flexible Band with little rubbery teeth that help it from slipping off your head after you place it. I can't wait to try this out!

Next are sample sizes of the following items: Murad .03 FL oz Essential C- Eye Cream with SPF 15. Chella Hello Beautiful 0.17 FL oz Resurfacing Mask. Philosophy Microdelivery exfoliating wash 6 ml. Bareminerals Naturally Luminous Duo for Combination skin 1ml each Purifying Facial Cleanser and Purely nourishing moisturizer.

Really excited about this one, Full Size Napoleon Perdis Coral Island Lip Gloss. It's a really nice nude gloss, smells amazing (like Passion Fruit), and goes on smoothly. Not too sticky or gloppy and has decent last-ability. This is something I would pay for! :) Thank you ITO.

Here is a swatch so you can see how nude it is! I love it.

Last but not least, I got a Napoleon Perdis Eye Shadow Palette. Nice sized Natural Colors, the pans are about the size of a dime, so it gives you a decent amount of the colors.

 The colors are not named, so I did the swatches in the same spots they would appear on the palette. The pigmentation is awesome! I am very very very impressed with the quality of this palette!!

Same thing again, the swatches are lined up to match the spots on the palette. Gorgeous colors right?
I just want to say congratulations to the wonderful ladies over at on their first anniversary! May they have many more and even more successful anniversarys than their first. I was honored to be a part of it, and greatly appreciate being one of the recipients of the swag bag. So be sure to head on over and sign up if you haven't already (It's Free, and the people are great). Have a wonderful Sunday Ladies! XOXO
