Lush Cosmetics: Toothy Tabs in Sparkle
I got this product in my Lush Life wrapped gift for my birthday. These are portable toothpaste tabs that eliminate plastic packaging and are all around eco-friendly for the user and the world. This product is vegan. This flavor is made with Lemon, Grapefruit, and Black Pepper. The full size is 40 tabs. or 0.5oz of product and retails for 4.95$.
The formula is made with sodium bicarbonate, cream of tartar, kaloin, lemon peel, lemon oil, black pepper oil, grapefruit oil, sea salt, and black pepper powder.
to use: you take a tab, put it in your mouth, and chew on the tab with your front teeth, wet a brush and start brushing your teeth with the mixture in your mouth, brush, spit, wash your mouth out, and enjoy clean teeth!
In my opinion this is a good product, but the taste isn't the greatest. It's great eco wise, and vegan wise, but the taste is slightly lemony and peppery tasting. I'm used to minty flavored toothpastes, that usually burn my mouth bad. With this product there is no minty burn, so it's easier on your mouth, but it doesn't do much for freshening your breath/mouth. I find after 5-10 mins. that my breath is back to normal.
So I like it, but I'd love a minty one! I will try a mint one next to compare to a normal toothpaste. I don't hate it, but I don't love it!
it gets a c+ and a 3/5
Stay tuned for more lush related goodness soon,
Reviews will be up for more lush products soon.

Gillette Venus Razor Haul
I used my new Sam's Club membership to purchase a years worth of razor refills to shave. I got 10 of the Spa Breeze Venus Refills and 2 of the Venus & Olay Refills. Plus a Razor handle to put the blades on. It was 35.88 for the bulk package.
this price is cheaper then buying the razor and refills by themselves. The handle and 1-2 refills are 13.00$ and a 6 pack of razor refills is 25-30.00$.
Saving money by buying in bulk! yay!
Stay tuned for more beauty and health goodness soon, and a review of each razor refill too!

Lush Cosmetics: Ocean Salt Review
I picked up the Lush Ocean Salt in the Lush Life wrapped gift I got at my local lush store for my birthday. My birthday was July 2nd. I got the small (2.4 oz) pot of Ocean Salt. It is a face and body scrub made with lime juice, avocado butter, and fine and coarse sea salt to exfoliate your skin.
The ingredients are fresh and vegetarian. and I can use this until march 2017. There is vodka, sea salt, grapefruit infusion, avocado butter, coconut oil,seaweed absolute, violet leaf, and lanolin in the mixture.
The smell is like a margarita and flowers mixed together with a hint of salt. it is not overpowering and is light to not aggravate allergies and sensitive skin.
This scrub can be a bit much for the face at times, but if you use it gently and don't rub it hard you can exfoliate your face with it. I use this on my face once a week.
I also use a St. Ives product to exfoliate every other day or so due to my oily/acne prone skin. Especially in the summer time! I get even more oily in the summer and I sweat 50% more.
I personally love this product a whole lot! I would purchase the big size pot of this, and even subscribe to get one every 60-90 days. The full size pot is 36.00$ for a 8.8 oz pot.
you can find it here: http://www.lushusa.com/Ocean-Salt/9999902128,en_US,pd.html
and here's how it's made: https://youtu.be/n_h6wfPfVYI
It gets a A+ from me, and a 5/5 .

Anoka River Fest Craft Fair Haul
I recently went to the Anoka Riverfest& Craft Fair for 2016. I picked up some headbands for when I work and spend gift(birthday)money on them.
It was 3 for 15.00$
The company is called Halle Band and you can find them here: https://www.etsy.com/shop/LittleGlimpseOfStyle
I like them because they are light weight and made of an almost swimsuit material, it soaks up sweat and doesn't feel too wet and doesn't get bulky on your head.
If your in the Anoka, Minnesota area next year around july check out the Anoka Riverfest. It supports local crafters and the city of Anoka.

Stay tuned for more hauls, beauty reviews, and more soon.
Rue 21 Purse Haul
Teal/Mint Color Small Cross Body Purse (50% off clearance items was 15.00$ got for 6.00)
Pink Faux Leather and Lace Large Cross Body Purse (25.00)
I went into rue 21 for shirts and came out with 2 purses for 35.00$. I did need new purses. I got one for the normal price and one was a clearance item that was marked 50% off the clearance price. the one on sale was 6.00$ I think. A great deal.

SheSpeaks Campaign: Tampax Pocket Pearl Tampons
I got to try these tampons as a campaign for SheSpeaks. I got a free pack of regular pocket pearl tampons to try out during my period. Luckily, I got my period right after I received these tampons in the mail. I tried these while on orientation for my new job at sam's club. They work well, and the back up braid does help soak up leaks. A full review will be up soon for these.
Thanks SheSpeaks for the free sample and the chance to try these.
