I am beyond pleased to announced that I have been welcomed to be a part of Twinsie Tuesday. I have been following it throughout the years during my blogging journey! This week's challenge is nails inspired by your best friend. 

I decided to use Gelish "Party At The Palace" as my base color  
Maybelline "Holographic" Gold nail art
Funky Fingers "Sand & Stilettos" glitter ring finger

What my plan was to have princess themed nails since her boyfriend and I tell her all the time she looks like a disney princess. Now it didn't turn out like I wanted to, I couldn't get the gold polish to stamp in a crown for my ring finger, le sigh. Still love the blue polish with the gold shimmer in it!

No one could say no to the Makeup Geek sale - me included! I had to pick up those warmer tones thinking of summer. I only picked up a few colors because I didn't want to buy a lot and end up hating them. Boy was I wrong! I wish I picked up more colors :( I am so in love with how smooth and buttery these eye shadows are!

Victoria Secret New Body Care System Weightless Body Oil in Coconut Milk Review

I never like to half ass things, so I did pick up a few items from the Victoria Secret New Body Care System. Today we are talking about the coconut milk weightless body oil. I have been using pure oil on my skin for awhile now, so let's see if this is worth buying a pre-made oil mixture.

What it promises: 

Description

The finishing touch for ultimate moisture every day: deeply hydrating oil that’s still lightweight, blended with our natural Cotton Moisture Complex and conditioning coconut milk for sexy, silky-smooth skin.

TIPS & TRICKS:

Step four in our four-step Ultimate Moisture System for nourished, touchable skin from head to toe.
  • Exclusive Cotton Moisture Complex for ultimate hydration
  • Restorative argan, sunflower and grapeseed oils
  • Continuous 24-hour moisture
  • Infused with coconut milk for its soothing and moisturizing properties
  • Clinically proven formula
  • International patent-pending technology
  • Paraben free

What I found:

The oil has the same soft scent as the other coconut milk products in this line. It feels amazing on the skin. It's an easy oil to rub in as well as it wasn't sticky or greasy on the skin. 

It have to admit how nice this body oil is. As long as you don't go overboard with the application it is not greasy. It rubs beautifully into the skin. I actually like to mix the oil with the matching body lotion, or my non scented body creme for days after I shave my legs. 

I do notice a difference in my skin's moisture levels when I do incorporate this into my routine. This oil feels so luxurious when I when I use this. I know this will definitely come in handy in the coming colder months. 

VERDICT: I have to admit I am pleasantly surprise how nice the oil is! You get so much bang for your buck too! It's a large bottle of oil for 3 for $30, which you can mix and match for other items from this skin care line. I will fully recommend this it moisturizes so well!

Victoria Secret New Body Care System Hydrating Body Lotion in Coconut Milk Review

Purchased. 
victoria secret body wash, victoria secret body care line review, victoria secret coconut milk bodywash review, ultra rich cream wash in coconut milk review, victoria secret body care system review, hydrating body lotion, coconut milk body lotion, victoria secret coconut milk


If I buy the body wash of something I always want the matching body lotion, today being no different. I have to admit the promotional price of $8 per item did interest me. (Currently 3 for $30) 


What it promises: 
Description 
Your secret to soft, sexy skin, blending our natural Cotton Moisture Complex for lasting hydration and conditioning coconut milk for ultimate moisture every day.

TIPS & TRICKS:
Step three in our four-step Ultimate Moisture System for nourished, touchable skin from head to toe.
  • Exclusive Cotton Moisture Complex for ultimate hydration
  • Continuous 24-hour moisture
  • Infused with coconut milk for its soothing and moisturizing properties
  • Clinically proven formula
  • International patent-pending technology
  • Paraben free
  • victoria secret body lotion, victoria secret body care line review, victoria secret coconut milk lotion review, review, victoria secret body care system review, hydrating body lotion, victoria secret coconut milk,

What I found:

EDIT: Since using this in the colder months I have found that it is not that moisturizing. When I use it I always mix it with the oil because it is not enough moisture on it's own. I will not be repurchasing the lotion. I will only pick up the oil. 

I have to say this lotion smells amazing! While it smells amazing I wouldn't say it's as moisturizing as it claims make it to be. - Not that it's not moisturizing, it is for summer weather that is. 

I love to apply this right after I shower or right before I hop in bed, the soft coconut scent is very comforting. The scent also does not interfere with whatever perfume you choose to wear with this. It's a light summery coconut smell, almost like a vanilla coconut soothing scent that would be light enough for baby products. I know that sounds crazy but it makes sense to me! 

While the moisture levels are not on par for something I would hope with these kinds of claims but it does make the skin feel super soft after use. My skin does not feel parched half way through the day, but it could use a good dose of moisture in the evening! 

After using this lotion for almost a month now I have to say my skin has remained soft and happy when used in combination of the matching cream body wash(review here). I will note I would recommend a heavier lotion for winter use, OR mix in the matching body oil with the lotion for a great moisture punch! 

PROS:
  • Smells devine 
  • Layers well
  •  Little goes a long way
  • Easily obtainable
  • Lightly moisturizes skin for summer use
CONS:
  • Pricy - picked it up for $8 but normally is 3 for $30
  • Not super moisturizing, will need to be mixed with the matching body oil for winter use.
VERDICT: While I do love this lotion in conjunction with the matching cream body wash and body oil the lotion by itself is a little bit of a dud - a big bummer for me.  EDIT: after using it in the colder months this can not be used alone. While it smells amazing I won't be purchasing this again. Skip
