Bath & Body Works Hand Soap Haul (6 for $20)

Currently BBW Logo are having their 4 for $15 or 6 for $20 Anti-Bacterial Soap sale in stores and online. These soaps are individually $5 or $5.50 each. So it's as if you bought 3, get one free OR buy 4 and get 2 free! SWEET DEAL! As you can tell, I got two coconut lime verbena because that's my favorite scent. 

Free stress relief eucalyptus spearmint body wash & foam bath
Obtained free offer through claiming offer through BBW's FB page 

Anti-bacterial gentle foaming hand soap

Anti-bacterial gentle deep cleansing hand soap

As you can see I got three bottles of foaming hand soap, and three bottles of deep cleansing hand soap. I think it really depends on your preference. The deep cleansing have anti-bacterial beads that are more useful for cleaning away more dirt, whereas I feel the foaming hand soap is more suitable for daily use. 

Currently, I'm using the coconut lime verbena foaming hand soap in my bathroom and am loving it thus far. Did I mention it was my favorite scent? Leave your favorite scent in the comment section.

Fortune Update

I actually usually take two fortune cookies when I get Panda Express. To my great surprise, the first fortune cookie was empty! Completely, utterly, as in no fortune paper was inserted into the cookie, empty. That was disappointing since I look forward to reading good fortunes!

My second fortune cookie expressed the following: "Lavish spending may be disastrous, be careful." (Side note: so I notice the fortune is written in all caps, must I say the people writing these fortunes must think they're more intelligent than I am!) Anyhow, this warning fortune is actually great! I was actually quite in the shopping mood and hasn't gotten a package in a while so I was going to go online and buy something to ship to myself. In fact, the minute I got home, I was on Forever21 website browsing and adding enough merchandise to get the free shipping for $50+ orders! I ended up not checking out, nonetheless the virtual shopping was fun and quite satisfying.

I will now listen to the fortune cookie until I'm at the mall this Friday! In which case, I'll splurge just a little bit. At the very least, buy an umbrella that I unfortunately left in a classroom and couldn't find it even upon two returns back, one of which was only minutes within leaving class. Conclusion, someone must have took it and hopefully will return it.

Until next time, xoxo

TotalBeauty Collection for HSN Exclusive

So as some of you may know already, I am an elite member on TotalBeauty. So what does that mean? It means I worked hard to earn 50,000+ points to get that status and be a part of a super awesome community! It also meant that Total Beauty send me a sneak peek of their brand new TotalBeauty Collection for HSN.

         I've tried all the products and written reviews for all of them. Overall, I think this is a great sampling collection of new products and to just test what you like and don't like. Some of my favorites from this box include the LORAC lip gloss in chuck, and surprisingly the Boscia luminizing black mask. Both are products I would consider repurchasing! If you guys like to check out these products for yourself, be sure to tune in to HSN and keep an eye out for this totalbeauty collaboration collection!

Schick Hydro Silk™ Razor

This Schick Hydro Silk Razor provides one of the greatest and closest shaves ever! I've used this to shave my legs and underarms in the shower. Although I've experienced some bleeding on my underarm, probably due to human error, this razor is still one of the best on the market. 

Shaving is definitely one of the fastest and easiest ways of hair removal. Usually there's not pain associated with shaving, so I was really surprised when my underarm had drips of blood. It may have been due to the epilating and waxing that I've done during the summer months. The other downside of shaving the underarms is the dark pigmentation that appears. However, there are ways of reducing that as well.

To be completely honest, I wish we didn't need to shave our legs and underarms so often, and wish there was a way of removing hair that's painless and permanently. But until then, we will have to turn to methods of hair removal such as shaving, waxing or epilating! (I've never tried laser hair remover, so I have no input on that.)

Detachable head
Skintimate Shaving Cream

One of my favorite things about this razor of course if the sturdy grip so that you don't have to worry about dropping it in the shower. Also the detachable head makes it easy to replace with new razor blades. I like using the Skintimate shaving cream for a even closer shave. So have your Schick Hydro Silk™ Razor arrive yet?
