How I Save With Health, Beauty & Wellness Groupons

Health, Beauty, & Wellness Groupons

Health, Beauty, & Wellness Groupons

This is a sponsored post. All opinions are mine.

Would you like to know how I save with health, beauty, and wellness Groupons? Yes. You. Do. A few months ago I taught you all how to save with Groupon Coupon, now I want you to know about Groupon’s main website.  I know a lot of people have heard about and used Groupon, but I was surprised to see how many hadn’t down either of those things. A few days ago, a few of my sorority sisters and I planned a girl’s night out. Some of them used Groupon for the very first time when we bought our wine and paint class. I was shocked.

Beauty Bit- Valentia Skin Detoxifying Clay Mask

Valentia Skin Detoxifying Clay Mask Review

Valentia Skin Detoxifying Clay Mask Review

I received the Valentia Skin Detoxifying Clay Mask from Brandbacker. This is an honest review.

I was so grateful to receive a full sized sample of the Valentia Skin Detoxifying Clay Mask. This mask was sooooo good. It smelled so fragrant when I opened the jar up. I couldn’t help myself. I just took another whiff of the mask. Like right now. I sniffed it. It is $25 on Amazon, and is a Prime item.

This mask dried my oily skin up. When I was done with the mask, my skin looked bright, clean, and very clear. It didn’t look anything like the hot greasy mess that walked into the bathroom earlier. The mask is supposed to be used for 15-20 minutes, and all you have to do is use the tiniest amount. I have a feeling that the 4 oz. jar is going to last me a long time.

Battle of the Yaki Lace Front Wigs! Help Me Choose One!

Yaki Lace Front Wigs

Yaki Lace Front Wigs

Ok guys and dolls! Please get me out of this hair dilemma. I need your help in picking out a yaki lace front wig. I have been looking at different yaki lace front wigs for months. Since I am natural, and very fond of protective styles, I want a wig that will mimic straightened hair so I don’t actually have to straighten my hair. I am so afraid of damage. After being natural since 2012, I want to keep my hair growing and strong. Protective styles, like twists and wigs, help my hair to grow because I am not playing in it or adding heat to it all the time. The thing I like about yaki lace front wigs is that they look more natural on my head. Sometimes I want a wig that looks like it could be my hair.

body merry
Hey everybody! I have a new product review for you. Body Merry sent me three free products to try via Brandbacker.com. I was excited to try them because they worked on beauty issues that I have been dealing with, and I had never heard of Body Merry before whose name slightly sounded like Bloody Mary in my head so I was like yea I will try these products. Body Merry has a bunch of products on Amazon and offer Prime shipping!I really wish I could have done a video review for you all. I had house guests this weekend, so that wouldn’t have happened.

Beauty Bit- Milani Amore Matte Lip Creme Where Are You???

milani amore matte lip creme

milani amore matte lip creme

Qui êtes vous Milani Amore Matte Lip Creme? I have been looking for the new matte liquid lipsticks everywhere. There was a crazy sale on them last week, and all of the CVS’s sold out of them. It didn’t matter because a ton of other stores online and otherwise have sold out of them. They are retailed at $8.99. I think that is very affordable for this kind of drugstore beauty product. I have tried the new Milani Matte Lipsticks before. They are great. That and the fact that the lip creme’s have been getting rave reviews are the reasons why I need to find these things!!!

FTC: I paid for the Walmart Beauty Box myself. This is an honest review.

I just got my Walmart Beauty Box in the mail.  As always, the boxes are “free”, but you do have to pay $5 for each box. That adds up to $20 a year since you get a box four times a year with each new season. This box was a little more exciting than my last one. There are better items in the box this time. I think I am going to actually use most of them. Yay!! You can find out more about the Walmart Beauty Box here.
