Voted one of Allure’s Readers’ Choice winners in 2016, the Tree Hut Shea Sugar Scrubs are definitely worth trying out; especially if you are looking to get your skin summer ready.
The shea sugar scrubs come in several different scent combinations, including: Coconut Lime, Marula & Jasmine, Moroccan Rose, Brazilian Nut, Tropical Mango, Pomegranate Acai, Hawaiian Kukui, Passion Fruit & Guava, Lychee & Plum, and Original Shea.
I have tried the three pictured above, and would absolutely repurchase them. It is a very gentle scrub that exfoliated very well and leaves your skin feeling very soft and moisturized.
The application is simple and self-explanatory. You just scoop out the desired amount of product into your hand and apply in a circular motion to the area of the body you want to exfoliate. The sugar disintegrates as you scrub, and moisturizes your skin. Once you’ve scrubbed enough, rinse with water. I usually use this product while I am in the shower, after I have washed with soap.
So where can you pick up these scrubs to try out for yourself, you ask. Ulta has a large selection (actually I think they carry every single version), and they often have a two for one, or buy one get the second 1/2 off deal. But for the regular price of $7.99 (18 oz.) you are still getting a great product for an inexpensive price tag. I have also seen them for sale on Amazon and at some Bed, Bath and Beyond stores.

Back from the Too Faced archives comes the Papa Don’t Peach Blush. I have been wanting to try this for a while now, but finally the time has come and based on the last few weeks of using it, I am very happy that Too Faced decided to bring this new and improved version back into existence.
If you haven’t already heard the hype or you have yet to try this sweet peach out for yourself, let me give you the highlights. First, it smells AMAZING! Seriously, the peachy aroma goodness is definitely one of its greatest selling points. Second, the adorable packaging. It is cute and functional. The compact is a magnetized tin, and kind of reminds me of vintage makeup compacts. Third, and probably the most important is the sheer quality of the product. The blush itself is a beautiful warm and natural shade that has a good pigment, yet is buildable upon application to create either a very natural, radiant glow or a more dramatic, sun-kissed bronzed effect.
Other reviews comment on its versatility as a highlighter as well, but because my skin is so fair that is not an option I can speak of first-hand. Review after review also echo the positive qualities I mentioned above which clearly demonstrate the need to try this product out if you are in the market for a new blush.
For $30 at Sephora, Ulta, or the Too Faced website, you will get a fairly large pan of product (0.32 oz.), in which a little goes a long way. I’ve been using it daily for about two weeks now and it looks as though I just opened it. The imprinted image is still perfect!

Those of you who also follow me on Instagram @AllThingsAdoredOfficial know that I have been using the Rimmel London Provocalips quite religiously as of late.
These are definitely one of my current favorites.
The application is smooth, the colors are fantastic, and as advertised it lasts foreverrrrr!
Provocalips comes in 14 gorgeous shades and is available at Target, Walmart, and Ulta.
The Ulta website describes the product as follows:
Rimmel’s Provocalips 16 Hour Kiss Proof Lip Colour is an exclusive 2 step product that locks in vibrant color for 16 hours. It’s so incredibly lightweight and flexible that it adapts to the movement of your lips. These seductively rich shades bring out that femme fatale in you! Wow color, incredible shine and zero trace!
I can totally agree with the lightweight and flexiblity claims, and the color lasts and lasts through eating, drinking, kissing, etc. Nachos, it even lasted through eating nachos!!
At no point while wearing this product did my lips feel dried out (like some long lasting lip colors can do), or get clumpy. The color remained smooth and my lips remained moisturized.
The cost is approximately $6-7 depending on where you shop, and is a super great price for the quality of product you are getting.
Thanks for reading! 🙂 If you have a long-wearing lip color you think is also amazing, let me know in the comments below!

The bane of my existence… cleaning my eyelashes! But I have discovered a new method that makes this whole process less tedious.
What you’ll need:
- Your used false lashes
- Rubbing alcohol (I use 70%)
- A small dish or bowl
- Original eyelash tray that your lashes came in
- First place your lashes into a small bowl/dish.
- Next, pour rubbing alcohol into the bowl/dish until your lashes are completely submerged.
- Leave them soaking for a few moments.
- Next, gently remove mascara and glue with your fingers.
- Once clean, place the eyelashes back in their original tray to maintain their shape.
- That’s it!
Happy cleaning!! 🙂
