LaRocca Skincare 24K gold exfoliant cleanser

Happy St. Patrick’s Day

I wanted to share a review on a little pot of gold that I received in my Beauty Army kit in February 2012.

The LaRocca Skincare 24K gold exfoliant cleanser is a 2-in-1, which I love. This creamy cleanser a has micro fine exfoliant that is super gentle, gentle enough for daily use. The cleanser cleans the skin and the exfoliant removes the dull surface skin. 

After using it for almost a week now, I can say that the cleanser feels good on the skin and my face and neck feels good afterwards. Not dry or tight or greasy. My face looks bright and refreshed.

Beauty Army February 2012

Hello Beautiful… Have you heard of Beauty Army?

They just recently launched on 1 January 2012 here in the US. For just $12 a month you get to choose 4-6 deluxe samples to be shipped to your home. There’s usually skincare and a little color to choose from every month.

To try them out click the link  Currently they are working on a referral program. 

So this month here’s what I chose to try out:

Pssssst!  -instant dry shampoo-  Got a 1.76oz trial size of the dry spray shampoo. It says it refreshes without water, builds volume and preserves color. Since I tend to wash my hair every other to every 3 days this is a great inbetween the days goto hair product!

Mama Mio  -Defy Gravity: Boob Tube bust and neck firmer-   This is a 1fl oz sample size. Looks to be about enough for a week - 10 days to try out the product. Been using it for a few days and I love the light fragrance it has. It feels really rich but doesn’t feel heavy going on. I feel it really penetrates the skin very well. Once I’m through this tube, I might just have to buy some more!

Indie Lee  -coconut citrus, the body scrub-  I use sugars scrubs, that being said I also know that they are relatively simple to make at home as well. My 1.6oz sample felt a bit on the dry side. I like my scrubs to have a bit more oil to them. It was nice to sample but for the 12oz fullsize at $38, I’m just not completely sold.

LaRocca  -24K Gold Cleanser Exfoliant-  This is super gentle and makes my skin feel so nice afterwards. The 1oz sample is enough to get through about 5-7 days (I’ve been using it in the am only) and it smells so nice and since it cleanses, breaks down makeup AND exfoliates - even better, this will go on my wish list!

Weleda  -Iris Hydrating Facial Lotion-  On the .17oz sample box it says it’s certified natural face care. I haven’t had a chance to try it yet— so I’ll be posting a follow up on this product review…  ;)

My Face Cosmetics  -Blingtone eye color in purple haze-  I have brown eyes and purple is my goto color when I’m looking for something a little more than natural look. I’ve used this eyeshadow on my eyes a few times now and LOVE to color. It’s like a bright amethyst tone with shimmer. Looks great on the lid OR as a liner. AND- it’s a $20 value since it’s a full size - so it definately made this month’s box worth it!

Beauty Army January 2012

We’re in for a BEAUTIFUL year! 

Beauty Army launched 1 January 2012 to 300 lucky subscribers! (I was one of them!) so I got my box in the first wave of shipments! How cool is that?

SO I wanted to post my first box for all to see!

Inside my pink camouflage box were the following:

Chella  Anti-Fatigue Eye Mask Kit  -  A collagen eye mask that firms skin around the eye area to help combat dark circles and puffiness.

SheaTerra  Rose Hips Black Soap  -  10z black facial wash that gently exfoliates, I like 2 in one products!

Lift Lab  Lift and Firm Eye Cream  -  reduces the appearance of crow’s feet, dark circles, puffiness and fine lines around the eye area.

LaRocca  Pumpkin Fleur de Sel Body Polish  -  OMG this smells like Thanksgiving pumpkin pie, like it smells good enough to eat (but it’s for your body, don’t eat the body polish!)

MyFace Cosmetics  Bling Tone Eye Shadow in  Sp”ice”y  -  This is a beautiful medium brown shadow with golden shimmer, super pretty!
