I was sent this sample pack from a very nice person to try out. I have never heard of Perfectly Posh, but what I have been able to dig up it's a program where people can buy a kit and then have parties to sell the products. Kind of like Jamberry or Avon but sassier!
First up, I have a cleanser and moisturizer duo. The They are both from the "Look Natural" line. Best Face Forever is an exfoliating face wash that has sugar based microbeads (not the illegal ones), grapefruit and peppermint. You can pick up a 4oz bottle for $21. Next is Night & Day moisturizer which is made with lavender and olive oil as well as aloe vera. This is also $21 for a 4oz bottle.
These were such small sample packs so I can't really judge how they work, but I can give some first impressions. I don't do any cleanser or treatments unless I can use it for at least 30 days. They both had a pleasant smell. I really liked the cleanser and the scruffy texture. The moisturizer was thick and creamy. I'm not sure if I would spend $21 on either because, like I said, I haven't had a chance to see how they really worked.
Next up is Cackle Spackle, a face mask. I actually hated this! I showed myself applying and wearing this on Snapchat and it literally burned my face about 10 seconds after applying it. My other followers said that they have tried it and loved it. It just wasn't for me. This mask is made of charcoal powder, volcanic ash, kaolin clay, and spearmint. I don't know if it was the spearmint that made my face burn or what. I have used the volcanic ash before and it does sting a little but maybe the combination of both did it? You can pick up a 2oz tube for $18.
Last is The "It" Girl hand cream. It smells fantastic! Like, I am in love with this! It is made of grapefruit, apricot and lily. While this features coconut oil, vitamin e and aloe vera, it does not leave a greasy feeling afterwards. It is thick and creamy and literally the best smell ever! This is $9 for a 3oz tube.

This is my first time using any products from GA-DE Cosmetics, so I was excited to see what they can do. When using a product for the first time, I always like to learn a little bit about the company and then get a really good feel for their products. I was sent a full set of products to create a full face look. GA-DE Cosmetics says to wear their brand is to, "feel beauty of every day life, to feel powerfully feminine and to live for the richest experience life has to offer". Yes! It goes along perfectly with my Make Me Pretty philosophy of using products that make YOU feel good about yourself.
First up, two lipsticks. One in a sultry red color and the other a nude. The Idylic Soft Satin lipstick comes in 12 different colors ranging from the nude above to a deep plum color. Each satiny lipstick is infused with lip care ingredients that include hyaluronic filling spheres to help smooth out those kissers.
When I first tried them on my wrist as a swatch, I loved …

Hydroxatone AM/PM Anti- Wrinkle Complex SPF 15 has been a really great product that has made it's way, permanently, to my beauty must-haves list! It has not only reduced a deep wrinkle, but it has also been very nice to my gentle, irrational skin. I have mentioned this before, but I am a 30 year old with the skin of a 16 year old. Mostly anything I put on my face gives me a pimple or a rash. All of the Hydroxatone products have been really good to my skin. I use this 2 times a day and have not had a single break out since using it.

I know it's September, but guess what?? My timeout worked really well! I am back and refreshed! This months Ipsy bag was really nice. The actual bag was designed by Michelle Phan who is the founder of Ipsy. It is to inspire the dreamer in all of us! Beaute Basics 3 Tone Bronzer
This bronzer is an awesome multishade combination. It is supposed to look good on any skintone and it's super easy to blend out. It does have a creamy application and wears really nicely. I've only used this with all three shades blended together so I'm not sure how they look on their own. I do love to use this as a little countour for my look! Ciate Paint Pot in Dangerous Affairs
Ok, so I am a polish addict deep down. It was my first beauty love and how I got into blogging way back when. Whenever I get a nail polish in any sub bag, I get the giggles! This is the perfect fall color and I am so glad I got to add this to my collection. It's super shiny, buildable and has aw…
