  • Nature Made Vitamin C Vitamelts

    I got this in a TotalBeauty box that also had EBoost in it. I hated the EBoost but I liked these. I used them as directed: just settle a tablet on your tongue and let it melt. It tastes way better than the chewable C with rose hips that I usually take. I will definitely seek these out for a full size purchase.

  • EBOOST Effervescent Powder

    EBOOST Effervescent Powder

    It really does taste bad

    Oh how I wished this didn't taste so bad. I was hoping it would be delicious, because it dissolves in water much more easily than Emergen C and it foams up so nicely. No complaints about the texture whatsoever. But it tastes bad. Lawdy mercy, does it ever taste bad. And I felt kind of icky after drinking it (I forced myself to finish it) kind of like I had overdosed on vitamins. I followed the directions exactly too. Won't be getting this again, no ma'am.

  • Alterna BAMBOO Smooth Kendi Oil Pure Treatment Oil

    I got a sample of this in the second TotatlBeauty box. I have fine, color-treated hair so I'm not really the target market for this product. Putting a little on dry hair did not really enhance the shine or slip at all, but it did add some texture. I also tried the suggestion of treating my hair before shampooing and that does seem to have left my hair feeling more springy-resilient and a little shinier. This stuff smells really nice too. It's really meant for thicker, coarser hair than mine though.

  • emerginC Scientific Organics Phytocell Detox Mask

    Now I know as well as any beauty product junkie that masks are not necessary to your skin care routine, thanks to excellent topical exfoliants on the market today. But doggone it, they're fun! This one from emerginC is very nice. It's green clay with beneficial botanicals and it smells great. It went on almost as smoothly as moisturizer, no grit at all. And when it came off, my skin was smoother than it's felt in a while. I've been looking for a replacement for Clinique's discontinued emergency mask, and I think I may have found it.

  • Senna Lip Lacquer Long Lasting ‘A' List Favorite

    I received a sample of Senna lip gloss in my second TotalBeauty box. I'm honestly not certain if it was the lip lacquer or the triple lips as the tube did not specify except that it was in a shade called "awake" that I don't see on Senna's website. Which is a shame because this is the prettiest nude shade I've ever worn. It's got just enough color and just enough shine for a "fresh faced" natural look. It's got a nice apricot color that is just deep enough but not too deep. It also goes well over darker shades of lipstick, lightening them a touch without changing the tone too much.

  • Likewise Facial Moisturizer Normal to Oily Skin

    Got a sample of this in the second TotalBeauty sample box. It's got natural ingredients and the maximum effective spf. Likewise has the least amount of white cast that I've ever seen in a zinc based sunscreen, and what little there is blends out very well. The lotion is luxuriously moisturizing for it not being a cream. It did soothe my skin and did very well under my makeup. I think I'm in love with this sunscreen.

  • Pixi Eye Bright Primer
    9.0

    Pixi Eye Bright Primer

    Keeps your eye makeup where you applied it.

    I was really happy to find a sample of Pixi's Eye Brite Primer in TotalBeauty's second sample box. I have received a sample for this product before, when I ordered Pixi's Flawless & Poreless primer a little while back. The Eye Brite Primer goes on smooth and easy, evening out tone and making a nice smooth canvass for eye makeup. Eye makeup that does not budge when applied on top of this primer. The tone of the primer is a little dark for my skin tone, but it blends out well and it doesn't leave me with racoon eye, or reverse racoon eye. I like it well enough that I am seriously considering springing for the full size version.

  • Pevonia Botanica Tension Relief Foot Gel

    I bought this product because I walk a lot for exercise and my feet and calves get sore. This lotion goes on creamy and has a mint and marine scent that seems to be a hallmark of this brand. It's much less obnoxious than Bengay's signiature smell, but it's still not something you're going to want to smell like for, say, a dinner date. Since I'm not intending to use this product for such a purpose that's not a particular concern for me. The product did make my calves and feet feel more comfortable and less achy, and it worked on my callouses really really fast. Faster than I would have liked actually. Now I have to toughen up the soles of my feet again!

  • Pevonia Botanica Bath & Shower Gel Anti Stress

    I only tried a sample size of this product, which would have been enough to test it out in a bubble bath but I decided to use it as shower gel instead. It foams up well enough that I don't doubt it would have given me a nice head of bubbles. It left my skin clean without stripping moisture. This is not really a moisturizing product. The main attraction is the scent - lavendar! And this smells like the real stuff. So nice!

  • Pevonia Botanica Phyto-Gel Foaming Cleanser

    There are a number of cleansers on the market right now with plant-derived active ingredients that qualify them to include the term "phyto" in the name. Pevonia's is one of the better ones, and while it's not exactly cheap, it's one of the less expensive of this type. The gel has a scent that's both minty and marine. It's kind of medicinal. It foams and is very easy to apply, and leaves skin feeling smooth and clean. Not the best makeup remover I've tried, but excellent as a shower face cleanser. If you need a cleanser of this type, check this one out.
