NewBeauty TestTube 2.0 July 2017

#BeautyBagDolls I am so thrilled to be sharing the NewBeauty TestTube 2.0 for July 2017. This one for me is such a winner since each and every product inside has helped made my summer beauty care routine a little bit easier! When I opened this TestTube 2.0 I was excited, it was packed with 9 products that were useful to me during the summer months and solved some beauty issues. Read on to find out what's inside and how I they helped me.
I am loving this months TestTube and will be purchasing a few of these again!

First product is the Jersey Shore Cosmetics My Lash Secret Eyelash Curler, this was a great eye lash curler in fact its one of the best ones I tried in a long time since I have strayed away from the lately. This one did not pull or tug my lashes nor did I lose any in the process. I love it so I can recommend it to all of you. Next is something I tired within minutes of opening my TestTube it is the LXMI Pure Nilotica Melt. I have been hearing about this brand a lot lately but I had not yet had the chance to try it until now and WOW I read how it is a one ingredient folula that begins as a sily butter but melts into an oil. It said it was for a dry skin that is damaged or just need deep nourishing. I have been spending lots of time outside and at the beach which has in all honesty effected my lips the most and I use sun protection balms but they don't seem to work so I took a little bit of the LXMI Pure Nilotica Melt and put it on my lips and within 15 minutes the dryness they had been feeling disappeared I also tapped a little bit of this on my elbows just to soften them up and I am like WOW and totally in love. Do have 30 minutes to spare? If you do and I hope you do grab the Rodial Snake Neck Mask because it will smooth, tighten and hydrate your neck. This was an easy mask to apply and wear I could still get stuff done around my house this mask does not slip off or come off until you do. I could see that my neck was smooth and hydrated immediately after removing. I am huge fan of hand cream and I love one I grab with me on the go so the hey honey Hands On Honey & Propolis Hand Cream is just what I need I can really go through them since I apply it a few times a day so this one was a welcomed one. I have heard of this brand but tried it for the first time through the TestTube 2.0 and I am in love the scent is not over powering and the results are awesome. Soft supple hands that feel silky and not greasy.

The next two products are the Symphony Beauty Facial Cleansing Foam & Makeup Cleansing Wipes.  I am girl who love her cleansing foam and this one was amazing gentle on my skin and effective in removing the makeup, dirt and grime from the day. The makeup wipes are just as good and they removed the stubborn eye makeup with ease. These are two new favorites. I am obsessed with eye shadow and a palette is even better! First off you can take one palette with you on vacation and have every shade you need and you get to pack light double win but the TestTube 2.0 packing Skinn Cosmetics Patina Eye Shadow really made my day. I have heard of the Skinn brand but never used it and this was a great first product to try. The eye shadow is pigmented and show up with just one swipe its a real winner. The Moroccanoil Treatment Light is the perfect product for my hair which has been a little more dry lately with all the swimming I am doing. This really brought it  back to life without leaving it feeling greasy like other treatment oils. The ScarAway Silicone Scar Sheet are a welcomed product sin it helps fade nicks and cuts that scared you and it works on new or old scars which for me is great since I have an old scar on my knee from Surfing and cutting my knee on a rock. This was the perfect product for this scar since its not the worse scar I have so I could give this a test and it works the scar faded and is hardly noticeable now which impresses me so much. The final product in the NewBeauty TestTube is the June Jacobs Brightening Moisturizer. I am always looking for a good moisturizer and find a summer time one is hard, they are always to thick for me until now and this one brightens my face which makes me very happy.

I am so happy I got to try out 10 products from the NewBeauty TestTube 2.0 July 2017 you have to try this sampling program out! I give this TestTube 2.0 a 5 $$$$$ because it is wide variety of beauty products from skincare to makeup ! You will be really happy to discover something new so pick it up today before it sells out and I am already excited for the next!

Extra Love From Anna:  I must give extra love to a sampling program that includes full size product that are just amazing for the price!

It Cosmetics IT's Your 30 Second To Flawless Skin QVC TSV 7/28/17

It's my favorite day of the month #BeautyBagDolls & #ITGirls It Cosmetics is bringing us the perfect Today's Special Value at QVC for one day only on July 28th 2017. It is the It Cosmetics IT's Your 30 Second To Flawless-Looking Skin Super-Size Celebration Foundation SPF 50+ with Heavenly Luxe Angled Buffing Foundation Brush. This is a fabulous deal that is happening for one day only starting at midnight on July 28, 207 and throughout the entire day but note that this foundation is now available in 7 shades and they do sell out quickly. The price for 2 compacts of Celebration Foundation SPF 50+ and the Heavenly Luxe Angled Buffing Foundation Brush is $49.14 plus $3.00 S&H. My jaw dropped when I found out the price and then I decided I would be purchasing a few more kits for myself and as gifts for the IT Girls in my life. The deal is amazing considering when sold separately  you would have to spend $118.00 but for one day only shop Item Number A296490 to purchase on July 28, 2017.


Purchase the It Cosmetics IT's Your 30 Second To Flawless Skin QVC TSV now before this Beauty Bag Must sells out! (this is in the medium shade)

Now that you have the information on purchasing and pricing I will let you know why I love this kit and will be stocking up! It Cosmetics Celebration Foundation SPF 50+ which has not left my side since trying it out. I switch between liquid and powder foundations all the time it just always depends on the coverage and time that I have that morning when I am getting ready. When I read that  It Cosmetics Celebration Foundation with SPF 50+ was still full coverage like the original foundation but with SPF I was thrilled, it saves me a step when applying my makeup and skincare so why not?! This foundation is describe as a  "full-coverage powder foundation," that is "rich in peptides, hydrolyzed collagen, hyaluronic acid, and grape seed oil, this foundation is highly pigmented, delivering full coverage in 30 seconds!" "Celebration Foundation protects your skin while airbrushing your skin to complexion perfection."  I was so excited to put this to the test because I avoid powder at time because I have to layer my SPF protection first and with the CC cream I use from It Cosmetics my SPF is included, however when I want to use a powder I need to apply SPF first which is an extra step I don't have extra time to bother but now with  It Cosmetics Celebration Foundation with SPF 50+ I get my full coverage and I mean full coverage foundation that is lightweight and doesn't look like a heavy powder along with that all important SPF 50+ sun protection. It literally takes me seconds to buff this on and move on with my makeup routine! I have been using the It Cosmetics Celebration Foundation with SPF 50+ every single day since I got it which include long work days and days where I am outside doing yard work or having fun at the beach and poolside all with confidence that I have SPF50+ protecting me and getting the coverage I want to hide those imperfections! This for me without a doubt and in this configuration for one day only the TSV offers you TWO COMPACTS! I love QVC and their Supersize deals!  shop Item Number A296490

Of course this is a TSV and it is from It Cosmetics so the deal doesn't end there included is the Heavenly Luxe Angled Buffing Foundation Brush. This brush truly helps you to just buff on your Celebration foundation SPF50+ to perfection it is a ultra-plush, custom cut brush that hugs the natural contours of your face giving you a airbrushed look that is just awesome! I am always floored when I use It Cosmetics brushes and this one is no different. This brush being included in the TSV is just amazing it truly makes this a Today's Special Value at QVC and it one you don't want to miss! shop Item Number A296490
As always the QVC TSV from It Cosmetics comes beautifully packaged and safe! 

This for me without a doubt, is a 5 $$$$$ beauty bag must have that receives EXTRA LOVE FROM ANNA! Shop Item Number A296490 to purchase before it sells out.

Shop QVC to purchase this TSV now and all day Friday July 28, 2017.

Golden Door Hydrating Cleansing Milk & Soothing Toner

#BeautyBagDolls I have a special review for you from a brand that is fairly new to me I have previously review a few things from their line and fell in love, the brand I am speaking of is Golden Door. They have amazing skincare products and so far I haven't had any issues with trying something I didn't like. Today I have a full size bottles of their Hydrating Cleansing Milk and Soothing Toner.  To purchase your products visit Golden Door.
Two beauty bag must haves from Golden Door that change your skincare routine!


My day begins and ends with cleansing my face so using the Golden door Hydrating Cleansing Milk was a welcomed product. The Hydrating Cleansing Milk which is a ultra-moisturizing face wash that helps exfoliate away dead skin cells and effectively removes makeup and impurities. It did indeed remove all of my makeup and left my skin feeling soft, smooth and hydrated (it also smells amazing). I am in love with it because it is super gentle on my sensitive skin and it is  sulfate-, phthalate and paraben-free formula. This is the best cleansing milk I have ever used which means it is a beauty bag must have that gets 5 $$$$$. EXTRA LOVE FROM ANNA is in order.

Next is the Golden Door Soothing Toner. In all honesty I don't always use a toner and its mainly because I haven't found a toner that is my absolute must have makes my skin look and feel good until now! Golden Door has truly done something I have been looking for, for a long time. The perfect soothing toner. My skin is sensitive and most toners irritated my skin but Golden Door Soothing Toner has been nothing but the best to me.  It is described as a "pH balanced toner gently and effectively removes any residue after cleansing. Its blend of pure, therapeutic botanicals aids in reducing irritations and inflammations. Refines, clarifies, revitalizes, and hydrates leaving skin clean and better prepared for subsequent treatment products." I can attest to this description because it has truly made my skin look and feel good without any issues of toners of the past. This without a doubt is 5 $$$$$ and a beauty bag must that gets EXTRA LOVE FROM ANNA!

Get Into The Limelight Silislice Glitter Silicone Sponge

I am going to say it #BeautyBagDolls Get Into The Limelight what do I mean you ask? The Get Into The Limelight is a brand I have mentioned before in an earlier review for their Selfie Ring Light full review here. However now I am bringing you a review of their Get Into The Limelight Silislice Glitter Silicone Sponge. I was lucky enough to try out two of their Silislice Glitter Silicone Sponges. They come in two color choices clear and pink and they have a lime slice on them with tons of glitter (do not worry the glitter does not get on your skin it is inside the actual silicone sponge). At first the seem too cute to use but after you touch one your going to be so surprised. Other silicone sponges I have use are much more firm compared to this one. These are soft and squishy which in all honesty makes them easier to use and get under my eye are when applying concealer and foundation. To purchase yours visit Get Into The Limelight.
This Silislice Glitter Silicone Sponge applicator is the only makeup applicator I need in my beauty bag! You need to Get Into The Limelight!

If you have never used a silicone sponge before then this one is the perfect way to start. I have found it to be the best one I have ever used because it is not stiff like others it is pliable. For me ease of use is a big factor and this one is easy to use and clean. You use probably less than half of the product you would use with brushes or other sponges because the Get Into The Limelight Silislice Glitter Silicone Sponge absorbs NOTHING! Yes it absorbs no one drop of your concealer, foundation, crème blush or highlighter. It is truly the one makeup applicator that will not waste your makeup like other sponges and brushes that suck it up into them wasting away your expensive products.  For me this is also the most sanitary way of applying your makeup because right after your done and going to wash your hands you just dab a little of your favorite makeup cleanser onto the Silislice Glitter Silicone Sponge and run it under some warm water pat it dry and store it out of direct sunlight. This is the perfect applicator and a beauty bag must have without a doubt. I give it 5 $$$$$ and EXTRA LOVE FROM ANNA!

I switch between liquid and powder foundations all the time it just always depends on the coverage and time that I have that morning when I am getting ready. When I read that  It Cosmetics Celebration Foundation with SPF 50+ was still full coverage like the original foundation but with SPF I was thrilled, it saves me a step when applying my makeup and skincare so why not?! This foundation is describe as a  "full-coverage powder foundation," that is "rich in peptides, hydrolyzed collagen, hyaluronic acid, and grape seed oil, this foundation is highly pigmented, delivering full coverage in 30 seconds!" "Celebration Foundation protects your skin while airbrushing your skin to complexion perfection."  I was so excited to put this to the test because I avoid powder at time because I have to layer my SPF protection first and with the CC cream I use from It Cosmetics my SPF is included, however when I want to use a powder I need to apply SPF first which is an extra step I don't have extra time to bother but now with  It Cosmetics Celebration Foundation with SPF 50+ I get my full coverage and I mean full coverage foundation that is lightweight and doesn't look like a heavy powder along with that all important SPF 50+ sun protection. It literally takes me seconds to buff this on and move on with my makeup routine! I have been using the It Cosmetics Celebration Foundation with SPF 50+ every single day since I got it which include long work days and days where I am outside doing yard work or having fun at the beach and poolside all with confidence that I have SPF50+ protecting me and getting the coverage I want to hide those imperfections!

Get Into The Limelight Limelight Selfie Ring Light

OMG! Break news #BeautyBagDolls I was sent something so awesome from an awesome brand called Get Into The Limelight This is a brand that makes a few things to make life easy and fun when applying makeup or taking selfies. My first review from this awesome brand is of the Get Into The Limelight Limelight Selfie Ring Light (I will have another of the Silislice Silcone Sponge coming soon). The Limelight Selfie Ring Light works with front and back camera shooting. All you have to do is "clip it onto your phone, tablet, or even your makeup mirror for a flawless finish and a selfie worth sharing! Unlike other photo enhancing lights, the Limelight has 24 built-in LEDs that can be adjusted with an easy-to-use dimming switch."
Get a little light help from Limelight and get your selfie game on!

I was super excited to try out this its something I hadn't really thought about when taking selfies. Lightening is everything or so I hear when I read about celebrities and now Get Into The Limelight has brought lighting to you with their Limelight Selfie Right Light. As described you just make sure its charged up and keep it near by you and your phone so when the moment strikes that you need to take a selfie clip on you Limelight Selfie Ring Light and you will have the perfect lighting for your photos. I am really happy with how easy this is to use and how my photos have perfect lighting. It really gives you a much better selfie than without it and I feel like after I get all dressed up with my hair and makeup on point the Get Into The Limelight Limelight Selfie Ring Light makes you feel even better when looking back at your photos. The celebrities are right lighting is key!

COOLA Primer & Setting Spray

Hello #BeautyBagDolls I am going to bring you a duel review today of two product from a brand that I have come to know, love and trust when it comes to SPF protection. The brand is of course COOLA. They are brand I first learned about a while ago and I used the sun protection all the time when heading out doors but now I am learning about their skincare line for the face. Their newest products are the COOLA Daydream Mineral Primer and The COOLA Makeup Setting Spray.
COOLA has you covered with SPF all while helping you keep your makeup on longer. A beauty bag must have!

I start my makeup routine with a primer and now I have a primer that makes it even easier because the COOLA Daydream Mineral Primer has SPF 30 in it which means I am being protected with SPF each time I apply this before my makeup. The COOLA Daydream Mineral Primer silky smooth formula shields your skin with our signature Plant Protection and mineral broad spectrum SPF 30, while a bouquet of Honeysuckle, White Lily and Iris Stem Cells instantly enhances overall skin quality." I noticed immediately that my skin was silky smooth and my pores were blurred but I truly love that my skin was so smooth I can easily apply my concealer and foundation. For several days I only used the  COOLA Daydream Mineral Primer and makeup seemed to stay I only had to reapply my highlighter after about 9 hours because I love a nice glow to my skin but I now have to admit that after I added the COLLA Makeup Setting Spray I never had to reapply even my highlighter. That truly made my makeup all day wear! The COOLA Makeup Setting Spray is something you have to use if your tired of your makeup melting off your face. This is "the first ever SPF 30 Makeup Setting Spray. A simple spritz of our weightless, matte finish mist protects the sensitive skin of your face while keeping your makeup looking fresh all day." I have to attest that it is a matte finish which is what I want in a makeup setting spray and it truly does keep your makeup on and fresh all day, you can even reapply just to boost the SPF 30 coverage on you face. I am so in love with that fact, SPF 30 in a setting spray. This formula also has "Cucumber and Aloe Vera Extracts to help soothe and refresh skin while Hyaluronic Acid, known to bind moisture, helps to soften, tone and rehydrate skin. A powerhouse of Peony Leaf, Juniper Berry and Phoenix Leaf Stem Cells reinforces the skin barrier and provides antioxidant protection. Set, restore and protect with confidence knowing our 70% + organic formula has you covered!"  I am so thrilled with the COOLA Makeup Setting Spray and in combination with the Daydream Mineral Primer you makeup is an unstoppable duo and two beauty bag musts. I give both a 5 $$$$$ and EXTRA LOVE FROM ANNA!

I am really happy to be bringing you today a review of an amazing eye cream from Golden Door. It is their Golden Door Silk & Diamond Eye Cream. This eye cream has a blend of ingredients, including plant extracts and lightweight emollients, this eye cream leaves the entire eye area looking more radiant and refreshed. Suitable for all skin types, it is beneficial for both the upper and lower eye areas. To purchase visit Gold Door.
The one and only eye cream I am currently using is from Golden Door.

I was super impressed by this Gold Door Silk & Diamond Eye Cream I immediately began to use it and from the first application my eye area felt hydrated and much brighter. There is a luminosity that immediately happens after I apply this around my entire eye area.   The after about 3 day I noticed that my fines lines had softened and after a week my dark circles faded. Each and everyday I looked forward to using this eye cream because I had results and it did not irate my sensitive eyes at all. My over all results so far is that it has decreased my puffiness, tighten my eye area, hydrated the skin and brightened it over all. I am beyond thrilled with my results I can only imagine that as the days go on my results will get even better. This is not only a beauty bag must but a 5 $$$$$ and it without a doubt gets EXTRA LOVE FROM ANNA!

Aloha #BeautyBagDolls I hope summer is treating you well and that you are applying your sunscreen often, I also hope your protecting your hair from the UV rays of the sun. It is something we often neglect to care for. Out hair is affected by the sun and thankfully Bare Republic Eco-Active Haircare has a shampoo and conditioner that is UV protecting. I am so thrilled that I get to review it for you today.
Protect your hair from the sun like you do your skin with Bare Republic hair care! 

I want to first start by stating that the Bare Republic Eco-Active Haircare system is great for all hair types, it also is 70% Organic. The  Bare Republic Eco-Active UV Protecting Shampoo is made with monoi oil, mango butter, quinoa extract and pro-vitamin B-5. This is a mango scented sulfate free shampoo that I love. It cleanses my hair gently all while getting it prepped and ready for protection from saltwater exposure, chlorine, and both thermal and UV damage. Then I follow up with the Bare Republic Eco-Active UV Protecting Conditioner. The ingredient deck on the conditioner is as follows monoi oil, mango butter, quinoa extract and argan oil. The scent is amazing and the formula goes to work conditioning my hair and protecting it from the UV rays of the sun.

Golden Door 3-Piece Try Me Kit

#BeautyBagDolls I have an amazing treat for you today! It is new to me and to my blog of course but it is welcomed addition to my beauty bag. It comes from Gold Door and it is their 3 Piece Try Me Travel set. This is a great way to try out 3 of their different products or if your already a fan you have them in a great travel size to take with you on your summer adventures! Inside the beautiful cosmetics bag that is included with this try me kit purchase is 5 fl. oz. Bamboo Face Scrub,  5 fl. oz. Golden Peel-A-Way Masque and 2 fl. oz. Hydrating Cleansing Milk. I used each of these and to learn more read on. To purchase visit Gold Door.
3 Golden Door Beauty Bag Musts that are skin changing! 

After opening the beautiful cosmetic bag I could hardly wait to try the products and I was drawn immediately to the Golden Peel-A-Way Masque but held off since I had a face full of makeup. I decided to first try the Hydrating Cleansing Milk which is a ultra-moisturizing face wash that helps exfoliate away dead skin cells and effectively removes makeup and impurities. It did indeed remove all of my makeup and left my skin feeling soft, smooth and hydrated (it also smells amazing). The bottle is large enough to last for several days. I used every night and got about a weeks worth of cleansing. My skin looks and feels great which meant I was so excited to try the  Bamboo Face Scrub . I typically use scrubs 2-3 times a week and this travel size try me was the perfect way to try Gold Door Bamboo Face Scrub. I got two full uses and it really impressed me. After using the scrub my face had a reduction of pore size which is super important to me and it did not irritate my sensitive skin which is something I worry about every time I use a scrub.

After testing those two important pieces in the kit I feel I had saved the best for last and something that I love the mask. I do masks each and every day just about but this one was different it is the Golden Peel-A-Way Masque. I have tried other peel-a-way masks and they were decent but now I have tried the best in all honesty. The try me size is perfect to take with you on vacation or when your on a business trip to keep you skin glowing and balanced. I got two full masks out of this and it glides on easily with you just applying it with your fingers. I left this on for about twenty minutes and it was set however I enjoyed how it felt tingly so I left it on for an additional 5 minutes just to make sure it was set as well. I then began to peel it away and I revealed truly radiant skin. My face was hydrated, glowing and supple. The tingly feeling stuck around for another 15 minutes but I can honestly say it felt like the mask was still working even after peeling it away. I love the scent of the mask it was very pleasant and the fact that it aids in the skin's own natural cell turnover process by exfoliating dead skin cells is a major plus. I want to use this all the time the try me travel version is a perfect way to test it out and make you want more of it. I hope to try the larger version of the Golden Peel-A-Way Masque because after two uses I already see a positive difference in my skin. The cosmetics bag that is included is a cute bag that is the perfect size to take with you on vacation packing all of your travel size products to go. You will not go wrong when purchasing the Golden Door 3-Piece Try Me Kit I highly suggest it and give it a 5 $$$$$ along with EXTRA LOVE FROM ANNA!

Pretty Animalz Sheet Masks

If you are a mask loving #BeautyBagDoll like myself than your going to love the Pretty Animalz Sheet Masks by Masque Bar. I am huge fan of masks, I use one daily and if I am lucky I get to use one twice a day but these are a little different in a way where they are extra cute and fun. Each mask has an animal face imprinted on it. Its super cute and fun, which brings a smile to my face each time I use one.  I have the Pretty Animalz Panda Calming Sheet Mask and the Pretty Animalz Tiger Moisturizing Mask. Both are available for purchase at Target.com
Have some fun with a cute sheet mask all while calming or hydrating your skin! 

I started with the Pretty Animalz Panda Calming Sheet Mask because it is for calming and my skin in particular needed some calming that day. This particular sheet mask provides intensive hydration while Lavender helps to calm skin with its aromatic and skin soothing properties. I found it to be very calming for my skin and I applied it onto clean dry skin for about 20 minutes. I love the results, my skin felt refreshed and calm after using and absorbed the excess quickly. It was a very pleasant mask that didn't slip off and stayed on my face as I walked around. A few days later I could not wait to try the Pretty Animalz Tiger Moisturizing Sheet Mask. This mask is enriched with extracts that help nourish and hydrate your face and it is an anti-aging mask. I had a day that my skin needed some hydration so this mask was perfect. I looked like a super cut Tiger while wearing it and it stays on for 20 minutes and you peel it off and rub the excess until it is absorbed into your skin. These are both excellent masks and you can find them in my beauty bag. They are sold at Target and are very affordable which makes them a 5 $$$$$.

Shop Target to purchase.
