Principessa Beauty – Bellezza Box Review (Bacio Me, Bagno Bliss, Candela-to-go, Cattiva Diva, Dolce Dreams, Fresh Fiore, Princess Pouf)

In my exploration for new body products to try out, I came across Principessa Beauty, which is a line to specializes in fragrance and bath/body products more than anything.

Here’s the company’s philosophy:

Principessa is dedicated to the art of pampering the urban princess. They leave out all those nasty fillers like mineral oils & petroleum products. Instead, these decadent products are made with sweet almond oil, shea butter, botanicals like aloe vera and peach extracts, and antioxidants vitamins E & C.

Principessa Beauty products did not let me down in my try-out session with them. The first thing I noticed was there was the slightest scent to all of Principessa products, very subtle, which made me fall in love because it’s a lovely scent with a touch of sweetness, but not much at all. I love products with lighter scents for daily usage because then I can top my outfit off with a few spritzes of my favorite perfume without worrying about some crazy scent mix. I tried the Bellezza Box, which provides sample sizes of a wide range of their products. This will make a great holiday gift, because it’s a reasonable $45 and you receive 7 products in good sizes (these aren’t made for just one use, you get plenty of body-lovin’ goodness out of these!). I always enjoy a company that allows customers to try products in smaller sizes before committing to full-size products.

Skin MD Natural Shielding Lotion for Dry Skin Product Review


Skin MD Natural Shielding Lotion is an amazing moisturizing lotion that can be used on any part of your body from face to feet to hands to legs.This product works differently in comparison to other moisturizers in that is uses a shielding method where the lotion helps to moisturize and then locks in moisture to rebalance your skin’s natural moisture.It’s important to follow the directions, because you do not need very much product to do a full application.I have been using this mostly for my face and feet, and this lotion really does work to reduce overall dryness and requires me to use it less and less over time.Users are recommended to apply the product to skin every four to eight hours for the first few days to a week, and then users can taper off the frequency of their applications as their skin adjusts and starts to moisturize itself.

I absolutely love how light weight it is, and it absorbs incredibly quickly even better.It makes a great hand lotion to minimize dryness because there is no oily residue or slippery feeling left minutes later.Really, the lotion absorbs in less than a few minutes.Skin MD Natural is also hypoallergenic, not tested on animals, non-comedogenic, and fragrance-free.I love fragrance-free lotions when it comes to my face, so this is definitely on my list of top three facial lotions.
This is one product I very much endorse and hold out as a miracle worker when it comes to aiding dry skin.

You can find Skin MD Natural Shielding Lotion www.skinmdnatural.com! You may also find it a retail location, which you can find through the site, as well.

cake beauty – reviews galore! sweet cheeks, creme de la creme, it’s a slice, satin sugar, cake kiss


I recently had the opportunity to review and try out some delicious-smelling Cake Beauty products. I’m actually not a huge fan of sweet smells, let alone food-esque smells, but Cake Beauty is turning me into a convert–at least where bath and body products are concerned.

In the photo, you can see the following products from left to right: Sweet Cheeks, Creme de la Creme, Deserted Island, It’s a Slice, Satin Sugar, and Cake Kiss. I’ve used all of these over the weekend, so now it’s time for the verdict!
