pH Balancing Complexion Wash by Frownies

Credit to Swaggable
Swaggable was kind enough to send this sample to me to review.  If you haven't heard of Swaggable before, then I'll be gladly to tell you a little bit about them.  Swaggable is an easy and fun way to try out new products for free.  All you have to do is write a review about the product and share it with your friends and family.

The first product I get to review from Swaggable is a pH Balancing Complexion Wash by Frownies.

"FROWNIES pH Balancing Complexion Wash is a natural skin cleanser that will protect the integrity of the skins natural sun protective layer and help prevent acne break outs. Exfoliation that is done daily and gently can support wrinkle free skin, gently clearing skin pores of environmental and cosmetic build up without breaking the protective acid mantel of the skin. pH Complexion Wash is gentle and powerful, and can be used on all skin types."  - See more at:

This is perfect to use when washing off makeup on your face.  I loved the feeling after washing it off.  A little does goes a long way.  I have a bit of an oily skin, but also have dry patches on my face, but it still worked out for my skin type.  It feels refreshing after the wash.  I used a toner afterwards still to bring back the moisture in my skin.  It doesn't have a strong scent which is good.  My pimple went down a bit using this wash.  I've been using for the past week and I've been loving it.  It was sent to me as a full size, but it still is nice to try something new for my skin.  I would recommend this to my family and friends.

My Beauty Addiction Review

The first time I saw My Beauty Addiction cosmetics, I told myself that I just have to try their products.  I found them on Instagram and I started following them to see new products and what they have in store.  One day, they announced that they are looking for some make up artist, bloggers, and make up enthusiast to review their products.  I decided to give myself a shot and sent a message to the owner.  They were kind enough to send me this beautiful varieties of product to try out.  As soon as I got them in my mail, I opened it right away and started playing with them.  The first look I created is shown below.
The first thing I tried on was the lipstick in Indigo.  I was in shock after I applied this on my lips.  Let me tell you, It is amazing!!!  I couldn't stop staring at my picture wearing this lipstick.  I did not expect to be this pigmented and just gorgeous.  Next look I created using My Beauty Addiction is shown down below.

Now let me tell you about this look.  This whole look for me is way different from my previous make up looks I've created.  I so so so love My Beauty Addiction products!!  On my eyes, I am wearing Jealous on the tear duct and then topped of my black liner is Ballroom Blitz and on my lips, I'm wearing Exotic Orchid lip paint.  I didn't expect this colors would also work out for me.  I am just in awe just looking at my pictures. To find out more about My Beauty Addiction, just go to  Thank you my beauty addiction for the lovely products.  I love them and I highly recommend them, my favorites are the lip paints.

What is in my May Ipsy Bag?


Hello everyone! My May Ipsy Bag actually came in early as I expected.  I was so happy.  I usually receive my monthly Ipsy Bag towards the end of month, only because I’m from Hawaii.  So, when I saw this in my mailbox, I too excited to just open it right away.  I didn’t even know what I was getting for this month. 
So, let’s see what’s in my Ipsy Bag!
Of course, a card that tells you the theme of the month.
Every month the bag is different, which I love because you can use it for anything.  Inside the bag are the products that you get for this month’s Ipsy Bag.
Hair Mask by: Eva. NYC
Microdermabrasion Scrub by: Derma e
A must have for the summer.
Natural Sunscreen by: Hang Ten
Duo eyeshadow by: Pacifica
Moisturizing balm by: Olive Lips
If you are interested on trying out new products (makeup, hair products, and skin products) I suggest you sign up with Ipsy now!!!  You get 4-5 items, some are full size and some are samples.  It’s only $10 monthly and you can cancel anytime.  I say it’s really worth it.  If you’ve decided you want to give it a shot, just click on the Ipsy Logo on the side of my blog page.

Thank you
