Hello August!

Happy Friday! TGiF Gorgeous!
Woo hoo! Wait, whoa. Can you believe that it's August?
Where did the year go? Where did the summer go? How can it be back to school time already?

Mancub goes back on August 7th as a Fourth Grader. Whoa.

Ok, so today's post is the last and final mention on the samples I received in a Glossy Box from the Las Vegas CosmoProf show.

So here's the low down...

 I received a box of samples that I got to choose from and there were some that I knew the brand and some that were new to me.

1. TSA approved size of Big Sexy Hair Get Layered Flash Dry Thickening Hairspray
This sample is a win win win. I love the brand and the products they make and scoring one for travel is awesome! It truly does everything in the name of the product!

2. The box of white sponge is a J. Andre All Natural cosmetic Sponge: Hykunari Blending Sponge-and this is why you want one. Or two!
  • Naturally contains Vitamin E
  • Odorless
  • Latex-free
  • Hypo-Allergenic
  • Soft and gentle on skin
  • Prevents dryness, redness, break-outs, and clogging of pores
  • Will NOT increase your chances of cancer, birth defects and infertility like synthetic sponges
I do not like sponges and don't use them unless of course, it's a J.Andre. Believe the hype, get one when you can. Don't accept an immitation!

 3. The Tangle Cherub Heaven Sent Hair Ultra Hygienic Compact Detangling Brush with antibacterial protected bristles. This product I had heard rumor of and was curious. It's a beautiful white angel wing brush and I'm not exactly sold on the whole antibacterial thing, but-it's great to look at, stands up on it's own and if I don't like it-would make a great re-gift!

4. and 5.  Royal Apothic-the brand, has had their PR reach out a couple of times about reviewing the line  but they never send samples. So when I had the chance to pick some up, I did! I have the Royal Apothic cupppa Cuppa firming tea treatment mask and the Royal Apothic Cream Creme moisturizing body creme.

I was most interested in trying the fragrances from the line when the PR reached out, but now that I have my hands on some purse/travel friendly sizes, I'm interested in the skincare too. I'll let you know how this works out...

6. Dr. Lili Fan Probiotic Age defying eye serum-I just love eye creams. Like any eye cream and I try and test a lot of brands. This one, I am learning more about Dr. Fan and her brand, but so far, whoa do I love this tingly lifting eye serum.  I don't know where to get it but if you can, you may enjoy it.

7. Hair Therapy 15 minute Deep Conditioning Steam Hair Wrap
Holy smokes-this one is new to me. It says "don't get on scalp". Well. We shall see about that. I love a deep conditioner for my hair since it's always in the sun, it's color processed and it goes in the chlorine water of a pool or the Fukushima radiated water of the Pacific ocean regularly. So, yep-I'll take one for the team and see how this does!

Finally, the Dodo bird of the sample selections.

8. Be a Bombshell you Glow Girl The One Stick.

Well at first glance this looked like a good one, but what happened in the melee of sample grabbing has come to bite me in the rear. I did not read the ingredients when I was selecting and now at home I see that the second ingredient is mineral oil. Plus it's loaded with cancerous color ingredients. It's going in the round file. I'm not even going to try it or put it on my skin because I can't risk it interacting with the ocean water.


See ya at the next CosmoProf!
