Hi All!  Happy weekend!  I am ready for some relaxing time, that’s for sure!

I have a cool review today. I was sent samples of H2rOse Rosewater beverage for my honest review.

Here’s info on the beverage:

H2rOse is a specialty beverage uniquely made of rose water, saffron and other natural ingredients. Rose water was initially created exclusively for royalty. As time passed, rose water became a healthy beverage used by an increasing number of people around the world. The scent of rose water is beautiful and offers a number of scientifically proven therapeutic benefits. It has also been used for centuries in cuisine and in skin care as the ultimate fountain of youth.

Benefits of rosewater and saffron

  1. Improves skin appearance and complexion
  2. Promotes better sleep at night
  3. Decreases occasional temporary stress, anxiety and will enhance your mood
  4. Decreases appetite
  5. Improves emotional health stability
  6. Helps reduce bloating and menstrual cramps
  7. Eases digestion
  8. Relieves irritable stomachs
  9. Strong natural antioxidant
  10. Reduces inflammation

Here’s a fun photo of the PR box:

H2rOse comes in 4 flavors — Apple, Wild Berry, Peach and Mango.

When it comes to tastes, it’s very interesting.  You can definitely taste the rose water and saffron, plus the flavor of the drink.  It tastes almost savory, with the saffron and rose.  It did take me a few drinks to get use to the flavor, but i enjoy them.  They are very hydrating — perfect for the hot Missouri weather.

You can purchase the variety 4-pack here.for $18.  You can also purchase four packs of one flavor.  The website is www/drinkh2rose.com.

Brand Review — bareMinerals

IMG_2183

Happy Saturday! I hope your weekend is going well!

I was recently sent some bareMinerals products for my honest review. The products I received are in the photo above. I’ve taken individual photos of all of the products, except for the Original Loose Powder Foundation with SPF 15 ($29 USD) — I forgot!  So I’ll review it first.

I’ve tried this foundation years ago and liked it.  It was the first powder foundation I tired. It’s a bit drying on my skin, but if I moisturize and use a hydrating primer, it looks really nice on.  This is nice for when I want a more natural look and works so well before I go to the gym.  I like having some makeup on, and this stays put through my work out!  I also love that it has SPF and gives the skin a little glow!

Complexion Rescue Defense ($39 USD) — All-in-one lightweight hydrating veil protects skin from indoor and outdoor light damage, evens skin tone and adds radiance. This also has SPF 30.  This is so nice under the original loose powder foundation.  It hydrates the skin and since there’s a glow under the foundation, it looks less dry on. This is also nice on it’s own.

BarePRO Glow Highlighter in Joy ($28 USD) — Cleanly formulated for long-wearing luminosity, this face highlighter can be worn three ways for a truly customized glow that lasts up to 16 hours. With light-reflecting mineral pearls, this versatile formula provides a natural-looking luminosity when worn as highlighter makeup, and can be mixed into your favorite liquid foundation, tinted moisturizer or skincare products to add a customized level of glow to your entire face.

I know this looks awfully pink in the bottle, but it gives such a pretty rosy/peachy glow.  It’s really pretty on the cheeks and eyes, too!

Gen Nude Eyeshadow Palette in Neutral ($29 USD) — This is an amazing eyeshadow palette for everyday wear.  It has six long lasting neutral eyeshadows for every skin tone.

This palette has 4 mattes and 2 shimmers.  They are very easy to blend and look really pretty on.  And they do last all day!  There is also a little sheet with look ideas enclosed that are fun to try. Even though this is very neutral, there are a lot of different looks you can make with the 6 shades.

Gen Nude Powder Blush in Bellini Brunch, Beige for Days and On The Mauve ($24 USD each) —  This weightless blush comes in 12 amped up nude shades that mimic a natural flush. The good-for-skin, ultra-creamy formula is long lasting, blendable, and features the new Blurring Mineral Complex for a brightening, soft-focus effect.

I really like these blushes, especially On The Mauve.  It’s so gorgeous for fall, actually all of the shades above are! The blushes apply really smoothly and are well pigmented.

Gen Nude® Patent Lip Lacquer in Can’t Even and Bae ($19 USD each) — This high gloss liquid lipstick has a cushiony, hydrating formula that  features the Moisturizing Mineral Complex to help keep lips soft, while a dual-sided applicator smooths on full coverage with one swipe.

These are so fun, they are super opaque and really glossy, too. And they aren’t too sticky, which is really important to me when wearing something glossy. The shades are nice, too!

I really are loving these products!  I’m so glad I got to try other products besides the foundation.  I’d say my favorites are the eyeshadow palette, the blushes and the lip lacquers.
