JI bought the living social deal ages ago. It was for $10 you recieved a voucher for $20 to any The Body Shop store. I went just yesterday to grab something before the holiday rush started.
What I found out from the sales associate that their black friday sale is anything in the store 3 for $30!!! Considering most items I like cost around $12 to $15 it was so worth taking adventage of this sale! With this sale you can of course use their membership card. I ended up spending $5 after my member discount and my $20 voucher!! It was great!!
The Body Shops Black Friday Sale is anything in the store, excluding gift sets, are 3 items for $30!!!!! What a great deal! Also I know in store if your a member of their shopping club you can take adventage of the deal now!
PS: Remember don't shop on Thanksgiving day! Don't support that craziness!! People should be at home with their families!!!!

I know this item itsn't something I usually post on my blog, but I think having a portable charger for those times you don't have access to a plug. A portable charger is something students and travelers or just anyone could benefit from. Will this portable charger be worth the buy? Click down below to findout!

I tried an Organix shampoo and conditioner duo, Hydrating Macadamia Oil line, before while on vacation. I only used it twice but I didn't like it. It left my hair squishy in spots. When I saw that CVS was selling minis of this shampoo and conditioner I decided to give Organix Renewing Moroccan Argan Oil Shampoo a try. Click down below to see if I liked this shampoo.
What it promises:
This rare formula has a centuries-old history of providing natural vitamin E and antioxidants while renewing your hair's cell structure, sealing in shine, and creating lush softness. A precious blend of Moroccan argan oil which instantly penetrates the hair shaft restoring shine and softness while strengthening. Derived from the southwest region of Morocco, argan oil protects from styling heat and UV damage while creating soft, seductive, silky perfection.
What I found:
My first thought when I tried this shampoo was it smelled like my boyfriend, more specifically it smells like axe. I do like the scent but at the same time I'm not sure if I want my hair to smell like axe.
I used this four times before I ran out. Twice after I taught swim lessons, and twice just when my hair needed to be washed. After each time I used conditioner and my Argan oil on my ends. My hair felt fine.
After I washed my hair it felt clean, didn't feel squishy or gross. I really like this shampoo compared to the macadamia nut line.
Best part this is sulfate free which is something I really enjoy, prefer to use on my hair.
Did I notice a difference? Not really it felt like a run of the mill shampoo. Nothing damaging or weird feeling left in my hair, while at the same time I didn't feel like it did anything to my hair but clean it.
- Sulfate free
- Can be found on sale often
- Fairly inexpensive
- Cleans my hair
- Doesn't leave a heavy residue
- No squishy feeling
- I had a meh feeling about this shampoo, I didn't really find anything wrong with it
Verdict: This is a nice sulfate free shampoo but it didn't wow me. Pass for me, but still good product. Can be found for around $7. Buy here

I bought a 3 item surprise back for $1, which included two sheets of nail stickers, hello kitty and Channel stickers, along with a wheel of stripping tape.
I bought a small nail polish remover pump container, because at the nail salon I go to uses these which look so convenient.

I do love this shop, but I recently ran into a little problem, back on September 21 I made an order, which I haven't received yet, but I received this order that I bought on October 16th. Right now I'm talking to customer service, and they're being super nice about it. Hopefully this problem gets fixed.
EDIT 12/05: Bornprettystore, was super nice throughout the whole ordeal. They're going to resend my package since it was lost in the mail, but I had to pay for the $3 shipping this time. I'm completely fine with this since it was a pretty big and expensive order. Now I just have to wait till January till I actually see it :(

Onto the actual thing this post is about! My October favorites!!
Benefit They're Real Mascara, has been my favorite mascara for years! I buy it in the mini version since it lasts the three months, and I throw out my mascaras every three months religiously so the $10 price tag doesn't hurt as much as the full size does!
Lumene BB Cream has been a favorite of mine for about a year. I love this almost medium coverage BB cream. Review here.
Garnier De-Puff eye roller I bought this within October, I used it just about everyday twice a day. It has a really nice cooling feeling. I really like it.
Laroche- Posay Effaclar Duo I bought this back in I wanna say September, I put it on twice a day, and basically all over my face. This baby has lasted forever! It's so worth it's price tag! - Just try to get it on sale at CVS, which is what I did!
Elf Eyeliner in black This is my Holy Grail eyeliner, lasts all day, and it can endure a little eye rubbing before it smudges!
I can't believe I haven't written a review for more than half of my favorites yet! Oh my! They go on the list to be written up soon!!
What are your favorites? Leave a link to your favorites post in the comments so I can check them out!!
