Summer Hair Removal

Hey Loves! F & J here!

Nads

There are a lot of things that come along with being a girl that can be really tricky to get the hang of. One of the hardest things we find is dealing with our unwanted body hair! Shaving can be a very time consuming and if your skin is sensitive, like us, you can get lots of ingrown hair which in turn makes shaving even harder!

While perusing the internet trying to find options for us to try we came across a few wax options that had some very promising reviews. Nad’s Brazilian and Bikini Wax which you can buy in stores or at amazon by clicking here, is the one we chose to try and we are hooked! It works amazing on our armpits and pesky facial hair (Come on ladies! We know this is very common and not talked about enough!) and though we haven’t tried legs we are sure it would work for those as well.

As far as waxing goes, it isn’t very painful. You can’t expect it to be pain free and if you have a buddy to help you it makes it even easier and less painful. We do find it is a little harder to do to ourselves but definitely doable.

We could rave on and on about this product! It leaves you hair free, (SIDE NOTE: If you don’t know much about hair growth, and we have all been there, it grows in cycles which you need to wax every week or two to pull out all the hair as what grows back is what wasn’t out to be pulled when you last waxed), smooth, and we find it helps with evening the color of our armpits. Besides that you get to skip your daily shave and not think twice before throwing on a tank top, and it helps with ingrown hairs! We definitely still believe in our razors (check out the Billie here) but when the sun comes out its a nice little luxury to not worry about our pits and we don’t have to worry about breaking the bank to get it done!

Give it a try and let us know if you love it too! We hope you do! Go on, spread the news, Nad’s is the way to go this summer! If you have any other means of hair removal please feel free to share we are always looking for new things!

Love,

FabFitFun – Summer 2018 Unboxing

Hey Loves! F & J here!

It’s that time again! You know the time of year that feels like Christmas has came to your mailbox! If you are already a member of FabFitFun you know what I’m talking about, but if you aren’t let us explain. FabFitFun is this amazing company that sends seasonal boxes four times a year, stuffed with amazing and high end goodies. We have only good things to say about the brand as a whole. Every time we get a box we are so excited to rip open the package and learn about new products and almost always fall in love with every single one of them. We should also add we are not sponsored yet (but hello FabFitFun we would love a hookup!) so everything we say is completely unbiased.

 In the summer box we got so many things to be excited for. I think the thing we are most excited to use is the FOREO Luna which doubles as a beauty coach and a facial cleansing brush. We have yet to test it out but from what it appears, it connects to an app to maximize the cleansing of your face, while providing customized knowledge, which we feel is pretty amazing.

Also there is a full sized COOLA sport facial sunscreen which was actually on our shopping list to pick up, so its pretty amazing it came in the box. It is really important to keep sunscreen on your face year round, but this product contains SPF 50 which will really help combat future sun damage on the sunny summer days.

We also are really excited about the beautiful and high quality makeup case from Yumi Kim. Its really nice because the top compartment has a special spot to keep your brushes separate. We are planning on taking ours on all our travels.

Other really awesome things in the box include a beautifully colored eye shadow palette from Tarte with a Sex Kitten Eye Liner from Tarte as well. Orlando Pita Hair Protectant Spray which smells amazing, Marianella Body Caviar, and few other fun goodies that you can see pictured above.

If we have convinced you to join we made it easier so you can just click here to sign up, and if you’re still on the fence we think you should just try one out and we are sure you won’t be disappointed.

P.S. if you use that link you will get $10 off your first box.

Becca Beauty Haul

Hey Loves! F & J here!

We got to got to a Becca Beauty event and try out the new and old Becca Beauty products. We felt pampered when the makeup artists used the line to make us go from bare faced to beautiful [not that we aren’t beautiful without makeup 😉 ].

We both started with the First Light Priming Filter primer and though it looks purple it doesn’t have any actual pigment, it did an amazing job smoothing out our skin and gave a nice base to start applying our makeup. J used, and bought, the Under Eye Brightening Corrector. It was amazing under the eyes covering up all signs of tiredness and puffiness. The product worked amazingly well with very little! The Aqua Luminous Perfecting Foundation gave great coverage while being lightweight and felt super hydrating. Then we got to try the Hydra-Mist Set & Refresh Powder. We have no idea what kind of magic they managed to bottle up but it is worth every penny! We both left with some! The powder feels like you are putting water on your face. How? We don’t know. But it does and we would recommend this to anyone and everyone! We cannot wait to use this all summer.

The bronzing palette,blush and highlighter were all very nice quality and though we did not leave with any in our bags we will definitely keep this in mind for when we are out of our current products. Also, their Lush Lip Colour Balm was super hydrating and provided great colors and pigmentation.

We loved all of the Becca Beauty line and are so excited to use them up and go buy some more! Give Becca a try if you haven’t, you won’t be sorry! Let us know what you think in the comments below, we’d love to hear!

Girls Night In

75946902-19B4-4FB1-9822-0D7D6135897D

Hey Loves! F & J here!

It can be quite hard to find time in our busy lives to take care of ourselves and just relax, so the other day when we stopped by Ulta Beauty to pick up a few things and we decided we would have a girls night in to just relax and pamper ourselves a little bit. We decided to try something different than we usually do and picked up H2O+ Beauty probiotic bubbling mask and TonyMoly magic foot peeling shoes. The mask felt nice on and it was a rather funny feeling with all the bubbling. It is not the bubbling mask that went viral but we did get some laughs looking at ourselves and each other. We definitely recommend you give it a try! The foot peeling shoes were super easy to use and made our feet softer. Be warned that it takes 4-6 days before the peeling STARTS. The peeling process hasn’t finished for us but we are looking forward to it being done so our whole feet will be super soft and completely refreshed.

We definitely forget to take more time for ourselves when we need it and having this night in was a relaxing and easy way for us to give ourselves a little self love. We recommend carving out time in your schedule and allowing yourselves some self love too! We will definitely be trying to do this more often.

What’s your favorite way to spend a night in? We’d love to hear what you do and give it a try ourselves!

Love,

F & J

Our Favorite Mascara

Hey Loves! F & J here!

We know how hard it is to find a product that you love. There are always so many options out there and you want to test them all to find the best, but thats a lot of work. Especially with makeup, there are literally countless products out there. We get it, so we did the hard work for you! We tested countless mascaras, from drugstore to high end brands, and we rallied up all of our favorites and rated them by category! We can say we actually use these brands and we love them, and continue to buy them. We hope you get some knowledge out of this list because we wish we had it before going on our quest to find the best.

Best Volume- Better Than Sex Mascara by Too Faced $23 – This mascara has always been amazing at giving our lashes full coverage and makes them seem really thick and full. If you like to surround your lashes with dark and full lashes, this is your winner!

Best Lengthening- Roller Lash Curling and Lifting Mascara by Benefit  $24 – If your goal with your eye lashes is to have them long in length you will love the Roller Lash. The main thing we notice when we use this mascara is that it makes our lashes look long without the clumping you can get from other mascaras.

Best Drug Store- Lash Sensational Mascara by Maybelline $9 – If you are on a budget and you don’t want your lashes to have to sacrifice, we highly suggest this mascara! Its always one we come back to and the one we use on the daily! It lengthens while offering volume, and is great at not clumping which we hate!

Overall Favorite- They’re Real! Lengthening & Volumizing Mascara by Benefit $24- This mascara has to be our favorite hands down! Almost every time we use it we get compliments! This product gives our lashes length as well as volume, and the application is very smooth and not clumpy at all. The results last all day too! If you feel like you splurging and can’t decide which mascara, we highly suggest this one! You won’t be disappointed.

Do you have a favorite mascara that we should try? Leave a comment below and we would love to test it out! Now go flaunt those beautiful lashes.

Love,

F & J

FabFitFun Unboxing – Spring 2018

Hey Loves! F & J here!

We cannot stop raving how absolutely exciting it is to receive a FabFitFun box in the mail! It is always like Christmas Day every season opening the gorgeous box. This is the third box we have received and we don’t have a single complaint about the products that come in it. The spring box is filled with gorgeous colors that  make us excited to say goodbye to this never ending winter season.

The thing that we are the most excited about is the gorgeous Rachel Pally Clutch. It can be used for travel essentials or a clutch to compliment a perfect spring outfit. The adorable and dainty ‘love’ bracelet is also something that we can’t wait to pair with our outfits.

We love that the box is filled with items for self love and care. The massage roller is something we can’t wait to use after a super charged workout. And even though we have never thought we needed an eye mask now that we have an adorable one we can’t wait to use it while soaking up a lip mask and a lit yummy ‘Super Boom’ candle to help set the Spring Vibe.

The beauty products of the box never disappoint as well. The gorgeous lip palette is also filled with so many beautiful colors that can match any spring mood you have. There is also a skin perfecting lotion that we can’t wait to use on our face.  And nail ridge filler which is supposed to help gel damaged nails, which is perfect for us (guilty)!

If you haven’t joined FabFitFun yourself, you can snag a subscription by clicking here, and trust us you won’t regret it.

Happy Spring!

Love,

FabFitFun Unboxing – Winter 2017

Hey Loves! F & J here!

 

We cant help but obsess about our subscription to FabFitFun. The products they stuff the boxes with are so useful, adorable, and insanely high quality. It really is like opening a present for yourself. The best part is they are all full size products, so anything you don’t love, you can always regift.

We are really excited that this box has everything you could want for a winter day.

A nice pair of super soft aloe infused fuzzy socks and a cute poncho will definitely help fight the cold. And we are so in love with the hand cream, the smell is nice and subtle, and its super hydrating as well. Plus there is also an awesome exfoliant that will help combat dry winter skin.

We are suckers for cute coffee mugs and we must say that we will definitely be adding this guy to our collection of mugs (you can never have too many!).

There is also a beautiful eyeshadow palette, with gorgeous shades of brown and gold, that we can’t wait to use, after using the hydrating eye masks of course.

And to top it all off a gorgeous layered rose gold necklace, which will pair perfectly with a little black dress.

We think this box really hit the mark, and if you are jealous you can get one for yourself by clicking here! We really think you should, you deserve to give yourself a present too!

Love,

F & J
