When it comes to anything that comes in contact with my kids’ bodies, I always look for natural products made by companies with environmentally responsible practices. Not only do I want to minimize my kids’ exposure to chemicals and other harmful ingredients, but my family all have sensitive skin and need allergy-tested products. That’s why I’ve been loving my new collection of Baby Mantra products.

Happy baby after bath!

My kids share my dry, fair, and sensitive skin. Even many products marketed for babies and sensitive skin either dry out our skin or make us break out in a painful or itchy rash. The Baby Mantra products were friendly to our skin and left it soft and smelling heavenly.

I received two Yves Saint Laurent Pur Couture lip colors for free from Influenster for testing purposes.

YSL Pur Couture Lip Color

My Yves Saint Laurent VoxBox included two Rouge Pur Couture lipsticks (#9 Rose Stiletto and #19 Fuchsia). #19 Fuchsia is way to bright for me and my complexion. #9 Rose Stiletto is a little darker than I’m used to, because I’m so fair and I prefer not to wear any lipstick at all. But I love it! It’s soft and smooth and the color is beautiful. It even has a lovely rose smell. It’s a luxurious lipstick.

Influenster VoxBox: YSL Beauty Products

As a member of Influenster, I was chosen to receive a VoxBox containing free products for testing. The current VoxBox contained two new Touche Eclat products from  Yves Saint Laurent. I’ll let you know what I think of the products, but first, here’s my unboxing video.

Touche Eclat Blur Primer

The Touche Eclat Blur Primer is a soft, light, and shimmery gel that goes on wet but immediately turns matte. It’s formulated with four nourishing oils that smell divine. I definitely noticed that my skin tone was more even and luminous.

Touche Eclat Blur Perfector

The Touche Eclat Blur Perfector is a beautiful and portable compact. It instantly transforms from a balm to a powder to sweep away shine and imperfections. It can be used alone as an all=over complexion perfector, to set makeup, or as a mattifying touch up during the day. I used it during the day after I had applied makeup once in the morning. It worked great to mattify and blur my pores and it was so convenient to use.

What’s your favorite primer?

Review of @Dessange Paris Hair Products @Influenster #JadoreDessange

As a member of Influenster, I received a free beauty package from Dessange Paris to try and review.  First of all, how fun is that?  I love trying something for free that I may never have bought, and it’s a bonus if I like it.

The package included full size bottles of Dessange Paris Brass Color Correcting Creme in California Blonde and Illuminating Shampoo and Conditioner.

I have naturally blonde hair but lighten it up with highlights a couple times a year.  I haven’t had highlights in several months because I’m expecting a baby, but I definitely have some color-treated hair halfway toward the ends.

I was very happy with this product because it seemed to brighten up my color and give my hair a pretty shine.  The smell is great too!  What do you think?

I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes.
