Bath&Body Works Fall Mini Candle

Hello Everyone!
Another product review, but this product is for your home! Lately, I've been really into candles and complimentary from influenster, I received a Bath and Body Works Mini candle in the beauty bloggers vox box!! For review and testing purposes, of course! Also along with the mini candle, I got a coupon for $10 off a 3 wick candle and I got myself another 3 wick candle!

Mini candles- $3.50
Small Candles- $9.50
Medium Candles- $12.50
3 Wick Candles- $19.50
Bath and Body Works Store and Online

From my voxbox, I got the Mahogany Teakwood mini candle which is very popular due to the scent being very similar to Abercrombie and Fitch's Men Cologne. I think it is very similar, but it a little bit sweeter than the actual cologne. The packaging is a simple, glass tub and it's pretty strong. I've dropped one of these before and it didn't shatter! The burning time for the mini's go for a pretty long time. I was happy to see that the wax didn't disappear all the way on the first burn. 

 Peppermint Mocha was the one I got with the coupon and this is an amazing christmas scent. With the peppermint and chocolate scents, this scent is to die for~!

 This is the rest of the candles that I have collected so far from Bath and Body Works and I must say, I am a very happy gal at this moment. 

Overall, would I repurchase Bath and Body works candles? 
YES!!! I love the scents that they come out with throughout the year and I am forever in love!

Boots No7 Beautiful Skin

Hello Everyone!
Another product review for today is on the Boots No.7 Beautiful Skin products that I received complimentary from influenster for review and testing purposes! Boots No.7 is a brand that is very popular in the UK and their Beautiful Skin line is said to be made for each specific skin type with only 2 steps! The products that I got in my voxbox were the Cleansing Balm and the Night cream for Dry/Very Dry Skin. 
Cleansing Balm

Retails for- $8.49
Available online here and in stores like Target and Ulta. 

The Dry/Very Dry line has a lilac cap and is in a tube form. The tube itself looks pretty classy looking. It has a nice smooth, lacquered finish which I find to be very nice as well.

The cleansing balm feels really like a lotion that I use to remove makeup and it doesn't foam up or anything. It's not runny or too thick either so it's easy to work into the skin. Not all of my makeup was removed, but it still got rid of alot of my eye makeup! The night cream is very nice as well. It moisturizes my face very well and a little goes a long way for me. 

These products are scented, but not to the extremes. The scent is very light and florally which I really like and it doesn't bother my nose. 

Overall, would I repurchase these in the full sizes?

I think I would because these products are very gentle but effective and for the price, they work pretty well. 

That is it for this review, I hope you enjoyed and hope you like your No.7 Products like I do!

NYC New York Color IndividualEyes Custom Compact

Hello my beauty owl's!

So today's review is on the NYC New York Color individual eyes custom compact that I received in my beauty blogger voxbox, complimentary of for testing and review purposes.
Here is the website for more information on NYC!

Retails for: $4.99
Available in stores that carry NYC New York Color Products

The packaging isn't as appealing to me, but it is very handy because it has all of the eyeshadows and the primer and illuminator with the applicators included. It's perfect for traveling!!

The shadows are pretty smooth, but they do have a lot of fall out when you use a brush. The primer and the illuminator are a bit on the oily side so I would suggest powdering the lids a bit before apply the primer to your lids. 

Lasting Power-
The lasting power of this product isn't as long. The primer doesn't prevent the eyeshadow from creasing (sadly) and the eyeshadows fade throughout the day. 

Overall, would I repurchase?
Maybe, because of the shades, but most likely not. 

That is it! I hope you enjoyed this short review!!
