It’s that time again for this month’s Sephora play box. The effortless summer theme included items to keep you looking chic after long days and nights of summer fun. As always in each box, there’s an array of different beauty items, this box included a scent, primer, facial cleanser, hair product, bronzer, and a beauty tool. This by far has been the most exciting one yet. Perhaps it’s because most of the items in this box are new to me, and haven’t tried them before.
The standout product that I’ve enjoyed the most has been the hair product from Ouai. Last week's beauty post was on my newfound discovery for this up and coming hair brand so I was completely shocked to see something from this line in the box. I’ve been using this spray when my hair is still damp to lock in a beachy wavy look. This is a great product and I’m very impressed at the amount that was given for a deluxe sample. There’s ample amount for you to decide whether you want to purchase it or not.
If you were wondering about subscribing to this beauty box I would recommend you give it a try. If you are a Sephora fan, or a makeup/beauty fan, it’s worth a try. You can always cancel if you are not satisfied and it’s only $10! Let’s see what next month has in store for us!
Today I’m sharing a new hair product that I’ve been loving this summer. Browsing through Sephora, I stumbled upon this Hair Oil from Ouai. I’m always looking for products to tame the frizz down, and something to nourish and help with split ends. I like to keep my hair looking shiny and take pride and notice into the products I use to achieve this.
The Ouai brand believes that “Life is hard- looking should be easy”. So true, especially when I don’t have much time to fuss around with my hair and take care of it in a way that I use to. My hair routine is usually the last in the mornings, thus making me always on the hunt for good quality, fast, easy products. I went into Sephora without the intention of picking this up, but what sold me was the smell. The oil has a fragrance that reminds me of the plumeria trees I grew up around in Hawaii. It brought me back, and made me feel comfortable and calm. I thought I would give the product a try, mostly because of the great scent, and if it didn’t work out I could return it.
I have to say I’m impressed and will defiantly be keeping it. Able to be used on either dry or wet hair, this product is very versatile and has many different ways to use it. My favorite is to apply a small amount to my damp hair after a shower, then leaving it to air dry or blow dry. This is a hair product that is a splurge, but will get the job done to get your hair shinning bright and smelling good. So far I love this brand and hope to try some other hair products from them as well.

Getting to the hair salon to treat myself for that salon experience has been far and few since my busy schedule doesn’t allow the time. Hair care has always been a top priority for me, I like to look and feel good, especially with my long hairstyle. I have normal to dry hair that is constantly being color treated, so searching for a hair regime that keeps my locks nourished, vibrant, and healthy is always my goal. With the use of the Nexxus New York Nexxus® New York Salon Care THERAPPE & HUMECTRESS line my hair has been enriched with moisture to restore nutrients in every strand.
This collection is all about rebalance, restore, and replenish. With ingredients such as Keratin, Coconut oil, Elastin, and Enriched proteins, this hydrating system contains a protein-rich Caviar Complex that rehydrates hair deep within and smoothes every strand. My favorite part of the line is the Nexxus® New York Salon Care HUMECTRESS Restoring Masque. I use this product at least once a week to provide even deeper moisturization when my hair is feeling weak or dry, especially since it’s summer time, and spending a lot of time under the sun. All of the products feel good during and after application, leaving my hair soft to the touch without feeling weighed down. All the products have a fresh coconut scent, which I love!
I was also able to try a finishing mist, dry shampoo, and volumizing mousse from the brand. My standout favorites were the dry shampoo and finishing mist. The dry shampoo is light, airy, and reactivates my hair without leaving a white dry residue, perfect for those in between washdays! The maximum strength finishing mist is a hairspray that locks in my hairstyle but I’m still able to run my hands through smoothly without being stiff and dry.
Taking pride in our health and well being as women will not only make us look good but feel good as well.

There are so many great beauty products to choose from nowadays. If you’re a beauty lover and follower like me, then keeping up with all these products can not only become overwhelming, but finding the right product for your can be tiring. Being a mom of two toddlers, I’m not able to hit those beauty counters to see, touch and try the latest products out there. Swatching the product in stores is sometimes just not enough; you aren’t given the full effect of the product in such a small amount of time.
In comes SoChoix. The French translation for “Choice” this beauty concierge offers a solution to all the above problems. The SoChoix brand aims to bring together the best parts of the in-store beauty shopping experience with the best parts of the online shopping experience. Now you can choose which samples you want to try, delivered right to your doorsteps! With the option of choosing 5 samples ranging from foundation, eye shadows, lip products and nail care, these are now available at the convenience of an in home beauty experiences.
Each product is packaged individually for a 1 full use, but in actuality I’ve experienced at least 2-3 uses, depending on how much product you use each time. This is great for me to experience the luxury brands I’ve always wanted to try which can save me from a pricey investment if I end up hating the product. For only $15 a month to try a full sample of up to 5 luxury products, this is a great option for a beauty lover who doesn’t enjoy a pushy sales associate, knows what they want to try but just simply can’t get to a beauty counter.
I’ve enjoyed my SoChoix box and think it’s a great concept. We are all about convenience and doing things to make our lives easier. Now, I’m able to experience products I’ve always wanted to try without the hefty price tag and inconvenience of returning it if it doesn’t work out. It’s not a subscription box, but more of a box for you. It is a box designed conveniently to your specifications and your needs.

Prepare for this summer season by protecting you and your family with Hawaiian Tropic’s New Silk Hydration Weightless Lotion Sunscreen. This product features a unique, breathable formula with a light, airsoft texture for protection you can barely feel. I’m not a fan of sunscreen’s that are thick and heavy. It can be uncomfortable to have fun when you feel as if something is weighing you down. Once applied this product felt light and silky, proving true to its weightless formulation.
Ingredients such as hydrating ribbons of luxurious silk protein and Shea butter provide up to 12 hours of moisturization, leaving my skin feeling hydrated and pampered, making for a pleasant application and wear. I’ve always loved Hawaiian Tropics products because of the unmistakable signature fragrance and this product is outstanding with its blend of exotic island botanicals. Available in broad spectrum UVA and UVB SPF 15 and 30, the Hawaiian Tropic Silk Hydration Weightless Lotion Sunscreen will prove to provide a tropical oasis, suitable for family days of non-stop fun in the sun!
After the long day in the sun, there’s no better way to pamper your body even more than applying the Hawaiian Tropics Sheer touch Ultra Radiance After Sun Moisturizer, one the of the first after sun lotion that soothes, softens and leaves skin radiant.

Growing up in Hawaii, as a child, this brand was always a sunscreen staple. Forward a few years ahead, now I’m applying the new weightless hydrating version on my own kids. It brings back memories of my childhood and my many countless beach days. This product has been pleasing with my whole family leaving our skins feeling soft, smelling luscious, and providing a tropical feel leaving us to relax for family fun all day. I used the Silk Hydration Weightless Lotion Sunscreen throughout a long day at the beach and I am honestly very impressed. I love the Sheer Touch Ultra Radiance After Sun Moisturizer as an extra bonus in an instance where you go from beach to dinner, applying this product made me feel refreshed, smelling good and feeling good to enjoy our dinner together. If you’re headed out to the beach, having a BBQ, or simply enjoying the great outdoors, you must give these products a try for the long summer days ahead!
