MIX:BAR Eau De Parfum Scent Discovery Set - Review

Target has been coming out with a lot of new brands in the makeup section and MIX:BAR is one of them. The brand creates a different mix of scents that can be played around together or you can pick a fave and wear it on its own. This MIX:BAR Eau De Parfum Scent Discovery Set ($13.99) is a great way to try out all of the scents that are sold and which one you love the most. I love sets like this as gifts for those that like to create their own scent.

 

 

Here is some info about MIX:BAR and what the brand is about:

MIX:BAR gives you a new way to express yourself through fragrance, with scents for every mood, attitude or occasion, all crafted by the finest perfumers. Thoughtfully designed fragrances can be worn alone, but become even more beautiful when mixed and layered together- allowing you endless possibilities to create a new scent that's uniquely you.

 

The scents that are included are Tangerine Squeeze, Glass Rose, Coconut Palm, Cloud Musk and Vanilla Bourbon. All of the scents are strong in a good way and hours throughout the day. I like this brand because it is clean, vegan and cruelty free. I love that they are small spray bottles, which makes it easier to keep in my purse and use on the go. If you have seen this set at Target, definitely pick this up.

My Current Skincare Faves: Yes To, Thayers, Sweet Chef, Pixi Beauty

 It has been so long since I've sat down and written a post here, but I wanted to jump back in and share my recent skincare favorites. These are products that I have been using on a daily basis and they the combo of all these products has been working out so good for my skin. There are definitely other products that I use either in the morning (SPF) or at night (night cream) but I'm just showing a few that have really been my absolute faves for the past few weeks. Let me share about each product and why they are the VIP products of my skincare routine. 

The Thayers Facial Mist ($11) is something I will use at the end of my skincare routine, but I wanted to share this first. I love that it is formulated with Aloe Vera and Witch Hazel Extract to help calm and soothe the skin. I have been using the unscented one, and this works best for me since I can be allergic to certain scents in skincare. It's great to use any time of the day and I like to use it before I do my makeup to help my concealer and foundation to not look dry or cakey. Definitely gives this a try if you haven't. 

An eye cream is important in my skincare routine and I have noticed a difference when using the Yes To Avocado Daily Eye Cream ($10). This product was not a fave of mine at first. I felt like it was too lightweight and was just okay the first few times of using it. But now that the weather has been warmer, this is the perfect eye cream BECAUSE it is lightweight. I love that it's fragrance free and I notice a difference under my eyes when I use it vs. when I forget or skip. It keeps everything hydrated all day long and doesn't mess with my concealer that i put on. 

The Sweet Chef has some amazing products and I love their Kale + Vitamin B Serum Shot ($19.99). It has more of a milky consistency but feels nice on my skin. It helps the dry areas while still being gentle and hydrating on my sensitive skin. I'm almost half way done with it, but I feel like it's worth it. Just so if anyone is wondering, this product is vegan and cruelty free. 

Can you tell I love this product? One of my most favorite skincare products is the Pixi Rose Ceramide Cream ($24). It is an intense moisturizer that is ultra hydrating and just makes the skin feel so buttery soft. If you have dry skin, you need this product. Don't think about the price because it is going to last. A little bit goes a long way. I feel like I've had this for ages and I still have a lot of product to go.

So there is a look at my current skincare faves
 
Let me know what NEW products you would like to see reviews on!

Which will win? Maybelline Sky High Mascara vs. Wet N Wild Big Poppa Mascara

 I wanted to compare these new drugstore mascaras and see which one I would end up most loving out of the two. I have a blog post of the Maybelline Sky High mascara and gave it a pretty rave review at the time. I did enjoy it and was happy with my purchase. That was until I bought the Wet N Wild Big Poppa Mascara. I thought I would pick this up and it was just going to be okay. Nothing would really top Maybelline Sky High. So what were my thoughts and which one is the overall winner? Find out more below.

Yes To Avocado Fragrance Free Collection Review

 I am so excited about this new line of skincare products from Yes To. It is a new avocado collection featuring products that are fragrance free and super moisturizing. I have always really enjoyed products from the Yes To Cucumber, Yes To Coconut and Yes To Grapefruit. All of them have been gentle yet effective on my dry/sensitive skin. But this one really stands out for me and has been saving my skin from the cold and even rainy weather here in LA. Find out more about each product and what other products there are in this line below.

New! Maybelline Lash Sensational Sky High Waterproof Mascara

 This is probably the most hyped makeup product lately since it blew up on TikTok a while ago. It is finally hitting stores and everyone will be picking it up. The new Maybelline Lash Sensational Sky High Mascara is made to create big volume and super long length to any lashes. I had to try it out for myself, so I picked up the waterproof formula since I need something that is going to hold on the curl of my lashes. Find out more and my thoughts below!
