Brand Review –Rebels Refinery

Hi all!  I’m here with a fun brand review. The brand is Rebel’s Refinery. I received a few products for my honest review.

I am happy to announce that Rebels Refinery is expanding their collection at Target stores nationwide. The natural line of grooming products provide premium results without synthetic ingredients, ensuring your body feels as good as it looks. Plus, they are affordable!

Here are the products I received:

IMG_E0263

Smooth Criminal Body Lotion ($6.99 USD) With the help of this quick absorbing moisturizer, you can improve skin firmness, elasticity and tone while providing your body with the hydration it needs.
Sin & Guilt Body Wash ($6.99 USD) Great for all skin types, Sin & Guilt leaves skin soft, rejuvenated, and smelling amazing. The scent of the body wash and lotion is Spicy Citrus, which is fresh and a bit masculine.

Activated Charcoal Face Scrub ($8.99 USD)This scrub is perfect for taming skin that’s a little rough around the edges. Activated charcoal removes dead skin, unclogs pores, prevents ingrown hairs, and keeps skin looking young and clear.

Rebel Rose Geometric Pineapple Lip Balm ($6.99 USD) This isn’t available at Target yet. But you can get it on Rebels Refinery website. The highest quality coconut and sweet almond oils moisten, nourish and protect while Vitamin E provides essential antioxidants. The flavor is called “Exotic Fruit” which tastes like a symphony of mango and strawberry. This is so cute and it smells and tastes amazing!

Here are the rest of the new products at Target:
Lethal Uprising Shampoo & Conditioner ($6.99): Buying shampoo and conditioner separately is over-rated, which is why Rebels Refinery created this time saving two-in-one product. The botanical enriched formula gently cleanses and moisturizes the scalp, leaving hair stronger, thicker and fuller.
Classic Hair Pomade ($16.99): Keep that pretty hair of yours in check all day. With just a little water and a comb, you too can achieve the look of your dreams. This pomade gives hair a textured yet flexible hold that will last through the night.
What I think:  I really like this line.  The packaging is very cool.  The matte black looks modern, but the shape of the bottles are classic and almost apothecary-like.  This line will definitely stand out at Target!
The products are nice as well.  I love that they have natural ingredients.  The scents are nice and are appropriate for everyone.

Hydrate Your Lips and Hands With Products By Mamonde, Sun Bum and NaturaBrasil

Hi all!  I hope you are doing well this cold winter.  Are your lips and hands chapped like mine are? I feel that I’m always slathering on lip balms and hand cream.  I’m always on the lookout for products that keep me hydrated, not leave me needing more moisture!

Below are some of my current favorites — a gentle lip mask, a tropical lip balm and an all-natural hand cream:

mamonde lip sleeping mask
Mamonde Lip Sleeping Mask

The Mamonde Lip Sleeping Mask ($14 USD) is a staple for people with dry and cracked lips. This multi-purpose lip sleeping mask & moisturizing balm gently exfoliates lips while creating a beauty satin finish as it keeps your lips fully hydrated. The plum extract helps exfoliate the lips while leaving lips looking smooth and dewy.

What I think: This is such an interesting lip mask. It claims to exfoliate and hydrate the lips at the same time. I do know that when I apply it at night, my lips are soft and smooth in the morning. This has a very soft floral scent, it’s very nice.  This is the first time I’ve tried Mamonde, which is a Korean brand, and I’m impressed.  I’ll have to try more!

Available at select ULTA stores and ULTA.com

sun bum cocobalm moisturizing lip balms
Sun Bum CocoBalm Moisturizing Lip Balms

Are you someone that ALWAYS has a lip balm in your pocket? Look no further! Sun Bum has a balm that is perfect for anyone on the go. The Sun Bum CocoBalm Moisturizing Lip Balms ($3.99 USD) are naturally flavored and infused with aloe vera and coconut oil to moisturizing your dry lips. With three fun flavors, Pina Colada, Groove Berry and Ocean Mint, you are sure to find one you LOVE.

What I think:  First of all, this smells (and tastes) delicious! It’s smells like a tropical vacation (as well as a tropical drink). It is also very hydrating and is so nice for chapped lips.  I’ll definitely have to try the other flavors!

naturabrasil ucuuba hand cream
NaturaBrasil Ucuuba Hand Cream

NaturaBrasil Ucuuba Hand Cream ($19.50 USD) — Enriched with a blend of repairing Ucuuba Butter and Murumuru Butter, this extremely effective hand cream softens and smooths skin for up to 30 hours and provides a protective barrier against the elements. The rich texture absorbs quickly to leave hands feeling comfortable, not greasy.

What I think: I’m always looking for a hydrating hand cream.  This one is very creamy without being greasy.  It has such a nice, soft scent, too. I also love the tube packaging, it’s great to throw in my purse.

Summer Lip Colors and Treatments For a Gorgeous Pout!

Hi All! Show your lips some love this summer with products that exfoliate, hydrate and give amazing color to your lips.

I was sent the following products for my honest review and I have been testing all of them:

Fizz & Bubble Lip Scrubs ($8 USD) — The Fizz & Bubble Lip Scrubs offer exfoliating benefits, a touch of color and a sweet tingly taste. These hydrate as well as exfoliate. Each scrub contains Vitamin E, Avocado Oil and Shea Butter.  I have it in Watermelon and really love it, but there are lots of other flavors, too.  And they are affordable for a lip scrub!

C.O. Bigelow Mentha Supreme 2X Lip Balm – No. 503 ($8 USD) — a double strength formula for extra intense freshness and a super moisture-packed punch. It claims to have twice the moisturizers and twice the breath freshener. It is very hydrating but also tastes so minty!

NEW! Burt’s Bees Liquid Lipstick ($10 USD) — This is a creamy liquid lip, not matte. They are available in 18 high impact and glossy shades. The nourishing formula blends mineral rich pigment, Shea Butter, Apricot and Babassu Oil leaving lips soft and smooth. The claim is that your lips will experience all day moisture without compromising full-coverage and lasting wear for up to 4 hours.

Here are swatches:

The shades are from left to right 805 Pouring Nude, 811 Blush Brook and 831 Lavender Lake.

These are full coverage and do last a long time, especially over a lip pencil.  They are so creamy! These colors are gorgeous and I need to pick up some more!
