Jergens BB Body Perfecting Skin Cream All Light Skin Tones Review

Today I’m here to introduce you to the new Jergens BB Body Cream. I’m sure you’ve heard of BB creams for your face, but now you can give the same benefits to the rest of your skin. I’ve been putting this product to the test for the past few weeks…let’s see how it stacks up!

5 Benefits:

  1. Hydrates and smoothes
  2. Brightens and illuminates
  3. Evens skin tone
  4. Visibly firms skin
  5. Minimizes the appearance of imperfections


I definitely have a few pros and cons to this product. First, the scent starts out sweet and then dries down to a cocoa/shea butter smell that I really do not like. I really love how quickly it sinks into my skin, which is one of my top factors when looking for lotion. It makes my legs feel silky smooth for days without reapplying, which is probably the most impressive. At first glance, reading the word “illuminates” I thought it would have shimmer, but I was pleasantly surprised that it didn’t have any. Although it claims to do a lot, I’m not sure that I can say that this BB Body Cream gives all 5 benefits. I don’t feel like my imperfections are minimized or my skin tone is even. But, 3 out of 5 isn’t bad. I do enjoy this BB cream- I think it offers exactly what other lotions do & more. I’m not sure it’s my favorite lotion ever, but I know I’ll be picking it up a lot when it’s beach weather!

Majestical Jewelry Review & Giveaway

Majestical Jewelry Gold Fashion Bangles Review

Majestical Gold Bangles

Today I have a quick review of, a jewelry website that offers both fashion and higher end jewelry including pearls, gemstones and silver. I was sent this set of interlocking golden bangles to try out. Unfortunately they aren’t on the site, so I can’t link them to you. I think these are pretty heavy duty, not flexible/flimsy at all, which is good to know. I am really not a fan of bangles, though, so I’ll have to hand them over to someone who will like them better than me. I am not sure if they would turn my wrists green or not, but I wouldn’t be surprised if they did. I was bummed that I received these, but they have a lot of more fashionable pieces on their site. I am particularly lusting after the Vintage Crystal Floral Necklace and Nailed It Cuff for spring. I think my review would have been a lot more glowing if I had received either of those!

Anyways, I’m mostly excited to offer a giveaway to you guys to win a $20 gift card to to get your own piece of jewelry. If you don’t win, get $15 off an order of $55 or more with 15DOLLARSOFF.

Influenster Uni Vox Box Review

Influenster Uni Vox Box Playtext Sport Fresh Balance NYC Lipstick Rimmel Stay Matte Broadway Impress Red Rose Pilot Acroball

Influenster Uni Vox Box

I recently qualified for Influenster’s Uni Vox Box and I’m excited to share it with you! If you’re unfamiliar with Influenster, it’s a service where you sign up to receive free product boxes and share them socially. Let’s check out what was in this box!

  • Broadway Nails imPRESS Press-On Manicure ($5.99): I’m not a big fan of these, personally, but I’ve heard great things. Not a fan of the pink shade.
  • NYC Expert Last Lip Color in Forever Fuchsia ($1.99): This is a new release from New York Color in a fun spring pink. I need a new lipstick like I need a hole in the head, so I’m going to hand this over to someone who will use it more!
  • Pilot Acroball PureWhite ($7.49): A pen makes a lot of sense for this box. I’m not too picky when it comes to pens, so this one is nice!
  • Rimmel London Stay Matte Liquid Mousse Foundation ($4.99): I am interested in trying this mousse foundation that is supposed to stay matte. I was bummed because the color I received is way too light, so I will probably have to mix it with a darker product and won’t be able to test it out on it’s own. It seems to cover really well, though.
  • Playtex Sport Fresh Balance Tampons ($3.99): Kind of funny to get tampons in a box geared towards college students, but they are stashed in the bathroom. I thought the scent of these was very potent. They smell really good, I was hoping for a candy to be inside! Not sure if that is a good thing…
  • Red Rose Real TEA Premium Water Enhancer ($4.49): This liquid water enhancer was tasty. I got the blackcurrant raspberry flavor and it is nice and sweet. I used to use these a lot, but kind of got burnt out of flavored water, so I don’t think I’d purchase it, but I like it.

I thought this box had a nice mix of products and had a nice value. I don’t really think it was perfect for a university student in particular, but it was still nice.

What’s In My Purse? | Video

What's In My Purse- Target Tusk Zagg H&M Kushyfoot AJ Morgan Make Up For Ever Yves Saint Laurent

I realized recently that I hadn’t posted a “What’s In My Bag?” video on YouTube since 2012, so I decided to change that! I find these videos & posts fun because they are helpful in giving ideas of what to put in my purse that I may have forgotten. I keep my purse fairly minimal so it isn’t too heavy, but I have a lot of important products inside!

My purse is a super affordable Merona bag with a shoulder strap. Only $35 at Target! As far as what’s inside?…

  • My miniature wallet from H&M that houses my cash & cards
  • A business card holder from Tusk
  • My favorite Frends Taylor headphones
  • A portable iPhone charger, by Zagg
  • Cat-Eye sunnies by AJ Morgan (the ones linked are a bit different than mine)
  • Kushyfoot Flats On The Go
  • Make Up For Ever Pro Finish Foundation for touch ups
  • Yves Saint Laurent Glossy Stain in Orange De Chine to reapply after eating

What’s in your purse? Let me know your must haves in the comments!

March Favorites (Feat. OCC, Kevyn Aucoin, NARS) | Video

March Favorites Kevyn Aucoin Sensual Skin Enhancer Nordstrom BP Trolley Boots Cristophe Shaping Hair Spray OCC Hoochie Colour Pencil NARS Rue Bonaparte Rimmel Retro Glam Mascara Venus Snap Old Nav

I decided I had plenty of favorites to talk about this month so I opted to do my March Favorites a bit before March ends! I got to try a lot of great products this month & have even found favorites that easily beat out my past favorites from earlier this year. I picked a range of products in beauty and fashion to share with you today.

  • Kevyn Aucoin Sensual Skin Enhancer (Shade SX 05): This ultra-pigmented foundation is supposed to take the place of 10 bottles of foundation. It covers redness remarkably well. It has a skin-like dewy finish that is a bit troublesome for my oily skin but I am trying to get the hang of it!
  • NARS Larger Than Life Eyeliner in Rue Bonaparte: I love using a natural looking liner like Pixi Extra Eye Bright Liner to widen my eyes. This one is more natural because it’s a yellow toned nude and goes really well with my skin tone!
  • Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Cosmetic Colour Pencil in Hoochie: I’ve been using this multi-tasking pencil all by itself as a lip color and it looks amazing. Reminiscent of the radiant orchid color of the year, but in a much more wearable way.
  • Rimmel Scandaleyes Retro Glam Mascara: This mascara provides ultra volume and length to give lashes a great effect without breaking the bank. This is my second tube of it and I still really love it. I did a Rimmel video using this product if you wanna see it in action!
  • Cristophe Shaping Hair Spray: I just recently reviewed this brand and this hair spray has done no wrong for me so far! It holds very well for my hard to curl hair- and it is only $10.99!
  • Venus Snap To Go Razor: I partnered with Venus to do a blog post & a few instagrams a little while back about this new razor. It’s honestly one of the coolest things I’ve come across! It does the job like your normal razor, but is super compact for on the go and traveling.
  • Old Navy Rockstar Mid Rise Super Skinny Jeans: I’ve been a legging girl for so long, I’m surprised I got myself to enjoy a pair of jeans. I think the mid-rise helps disguise my midriff where a lot of my weight is carried. I love the fit, wash, and leg shape. I think I need a few more pairs in different colors!
  • Nordstrom BP Trolley Boots: I was on the hunt for some black heeled ankle booties and these fit the bill. I love wearing these with jeans, and they are comfortable even for someone who hates heels.

What were your favorites this month?
