Coco Cabana Cream

Coco Cabana Review

Hey everyone, welcome back to another blog post! Happy Monday  I hope everyone had a great weekend mine was decently pleasant. For today’s blog post I wanted to do a review for Sol De Janeiro coco cabana cream.

I recently got the sample product in my Ipsy August bag along with other sample products. I have bought the Bum Bum Cream, I believe I have done a review on it you can find it HERE. I have not even thought to try this product because I am loving the scent of the Bum Bum Cream so I was excited to try this one out. And I honestly wish I have decided to try this out sooner! I am absolutely in love with this coco cabana cream scent, I am starting to believe this is my all time favorite scent now.

Coco Cabana Cream

The coco cabana cream is oil in water body cream that instantly hydrates. This product is for all skin types and the main concerns this product supports is dryness, dullness and uneven texture. If you are wondering what the scent type is for the coco cabana cream it is a warm and sweet scent. The key ingredients highlighted in the product are coconut oil, coco sugar and cupuacu butter. One thing I always do before buying any skin related product for my skin is to check is it made for my skin type and what skin concerns is the product helping and would it help me. I always try to avoid buying anything skin products that don’t help my skin type or my needs. It honestly is a waste of money for me because it will go against my skin and because it wasn’t made for it. I also abide by this for my make up purchases also.

I am literally going to buy a bigger size of this product and also get the body mist along with it. This will most likely be my go to scent for awhile. I honestly don’t think am going to get sold on another scent. This has definitely beat the Bum Bum Cream, I love the scent also but it’s something I wouldn’t apply daily because I’d probably after awhile get sick of the scent. But this coconut scent is something I can live for I guess am a warm sweet type of girl.

coco cabana creamWhat are some of your favorite scents? Or are you more prone like me to just sniff around until you come across a scent you love? I guess since I am sold and hooked on the scent I am more a warm sweet scent. I recently came across online on Sol De Janeioro page where they said they have came out with a slightly different scent. I was confused because I dont know if it is the new scent I have or I haven’t smelled that yet. But I am going to purchase the body mist and medium sized bottle of the cream. You can find that HERE from your local sephora.  Thank you all for reading, I hope you all enjoyed! I will be getting a laptop soon, most likely by September. And I will then be back on my blog schedule as usual. See you all in my next post!

Farm House Fresh

Good afternoon everyone, and welcome back to another blog post ! Lucky you this week getting posts back to back. I am so excited to do this post as it is a product line I have tried awhile back and it doesn’t get out there much also because not much people know of it. But this is a line that can pretty much relate to everyone and to be honest its a pretty fun line.

Farm house fresh is a founded brand from its name of course, their ingredients is made from their fresh grown ingredients on the farm. This brand is a natural based skin care brand their farm house is based in the united states, 99.6% of the ingredients are healthy and fresh. Story behind the brand itself !

All About Farmhouse Fresh

Being such an interesting brand, even for the green beauty space, the story behind FarmHouse Fresh is one to hear. Like many small, indie brands, FarmHouse Fresh was created with one flagship product that went on to become the cornerstone of a full line of skin care products. Just over 10 years ago, FarmHouse Fresh launched an exfoliation trio with sea salt as the main ingredient. This exfoliation system was developed by FarmHouse Fresh founder Shannon McLinden to heal cracked heels. It was that one simple product that launched FarmHouse Fresh to almost instant success after it snagged a coveted feature on Oprah’s O-List. That achievement was just one of many with FarmHouse Fresh products scoring numerous nods from esteemed publications like Elle, Southern Living Magazine, and Redbook.

So aside from the fact that FarmHouse Fresh literally uses farm fresh ingredients, there are many things that make this brand so unique. FarmHouse Fresh princes itself on being a USA made product that specially crafts each and every one of its growing skin care line. Their message of farm life and freshness goes beyond their skin care products as evidenced by just a quick tour around their site. You’ll see that FarmHouse Fresh is dedicated to their farm and all the animals that live there.  – FarmHouseFresh 


Farm house fresh has collection of face, body, fragrance and bath products. They carry oils, exfoliates, lotions, creams, moisturisers, soaks, cleansers and much more. Farm house fresh boy oils are perfect to moisturiser the skin after a nice bath or shower, the unique formulation they have is created to lock in moisture. The oils each have a formulation of blended oils and each farm house fresh oil is 99.6% natural formulation. To achieve the best results with the oil is best to drop in a bath or just apply right after a shower. The farm house fresh lotions they have has a great formulation like aloe, shea butter that benefit the skin. They have a number of different scents like back country caramel, fresh melon, ginger sorbet and sweet cream.

The first time I ever tried this brand was back in college when I was studying spa management and this was sold in the college spa, and I personally was hooked on this brand. There products smell so good I purchased the melon scrub with vodka in it and the back country caramel lotion, that lotion was my all time favourite I must say. If you are looking for the all time organic brand that does the job and smells great this would be the one. I love how farm house fresh does their scrubs, their bourbon bubbler is infused with brown sugar and real Kentucky whiskey.

There is a watermelon basil vodkatini, which is watermelon, organic vodka and basil. This has watermelon seed oils with sugar and rice bran for a great exfoliation. The rasmopolitan which is raspberry and vodka, and sugar with rice bran oil. The raspberry extract and the vitamin E in it help hydrate the skin and the salt and sugar help lift away any dead skin cells on the skin. The brand has a great variety of products, you can look at here on their site Farmhousefreshgoods.com. I hope I had the answer to all your cleansing, exfoliating and skin needs if you would like to know more have some time to visit their site. Thank you for reading I hope you all have a great rest of our Wednesday ! Look out for Monday post which will be posted at 9am EST.

Favourite Lip Products

Good morning everyone, welcome back to another blog post. Happy Monday back to a whole new week, I hope everyone morning is going good so far? I noticed I haven’t been doing much make up haul or posts lately and I want to start posting more posts related to beauty for the next upcoming weeks. I decided to do a post on my current favourite lip products I am loving so far, I am so obsessed with these products I am using these four for pretty much every make up look I do. The first three I am obsessed with is from the Fenty beauty line, I am loving the glosses and lipstick. I love the texture and how it feels I first bought the shimmering rose nude loved that and had to try the diamond milk one. I was first hesitant to buying it because I honestly thought it would be like all the other clear glosses but I decided to give it a try, it was more like a last minute quick pick up purchase. But to be honest I love it as much as the fenty glow one it is pretty much the same result I love how it just looks on me. One of the things I love about the fenty beauty line is that the beauty products she makes is for all skin tones and women everywhere, and that is one thing the beauty industry needs more for women. As a women of colour one of the hard things for me when it comes to buying products especially either foundation or lip shades is that its hard for me to find ones that match or go with me perfectly. This is a brand I would continually buy from, I haven’t tried wearing it over other lip shades I usually just wear it alone.

The next product shown that I love is the Blackup gloss, I got this on sale but sadly I found out that it is not for sale on the Sephora site anymore and I am not sure if it would be back. So backup is a brand dedicated to women of colour and it was developed by women of colour and it caters to women of darker skin tones. This is one of the reasons why I fell in love with this product it does what the brand says, this gloss looks so good on me it blends in so well with my skin tone. The gloss is kind of like a clear gloss with a nude undertone it carries different under tone colours, so you can get a rose tone or a more brown tone and etc that is the best way I can explain since I cant bring it up on sephora. The gloss doesn’t come off to sticky the only issue is that when used it sometimes comes out separated from the colour so sometimes clear gloss comes out first then it coming out together.

So those are so far all and current favourite lip products am using when doing my make up. I do not want to go further in more detail with these because i just currently did a Sephora review post on my blog and I did go through these products already. But I wanted to do a separate post on what am currently loving at the moment for winter, if you haven’t tried fenty yet I recommend you do I can not find one thing I dont like. And if you are a women of colour and find it hard like me finding shades that go with your skin tone there is your brand, even if you are not of colour you can also check out the brand they have other products pretty much any one of any shade can still use. That is it for today’s post like & comment i love hearing from you all my next post will be up Wednesday at 3pm Toronto time lol, I am so happy I am finally on a posting schedule!

Sephora Reviews

Good morning everyone! Welcome back to another post I am finally doing a make up review. These are some sephora buys I got back in December for my birthday purchases and got sometime to somewhat try them out.  I know it seems a bit late but with products I love to just try them out for a while before making a big review. Also its been a bit hard to do make up haul and review lately since having a baby I hardly ever get time to sit and do my make up so hopefully I can get back to doing that.

So here is my review and thoughts about these products, I will first start with the fenty beauty the stunna lip paint long wear lip color  in chocolate-brown. And I must say this is so far my favorite lipstick at the moment, I am absolutely in love with this formula and colour. I love how smooth it apply and the texture and colour, it matches so well with my complexion and that is what I look first in lip colours. I’ve been looking for a while now on a colour that will go so well with my complexion and I have found it. I will be making so much more purchases of this color and I also now want to give her other colours of matte lipsticks a try. Next would be the fenty lip gloss in diamond milk, I was at first hesitant to buy this when I saw this colour came out because am not much a plain type to choose gloss colours like this ..but again I am in love with this gloss I just love how these colours look on me. Lately all I’ve been only been wearing fenty lip products, and I think I honestly will for awhile.

I also picked up a face mist I’ve been without one for a while now, I choose the yves saint laurent top secrets setting spray. I have used this a couple of times and I have nothing bad to say about it. I love how it feels on my skin there is no sticky or dry feeling after application of it and it dry well, I always make sure to moisturiser better using it this helps with the no dry feeling prior hand. The Anastasia product I purchased was the powered brozer, I got the color mahogany. I love how this color looked it is so pretty, and the color I thought would go well with my complexion. I use this to help with my contouring. Again I love the product how it was packaged I have no complaints about the product I would purchase this again. For the last product which is hard to see but it is the kat von d lock it setting powder. Now I for sure was not sure on buying this, I have been faithful to Laura mercier for the longest time. I have had bad experiences with setting powders settling properly into my skin because I have a darker complexion and some of them would show and I would end up looking pale. Until  found laura mercier power does not do that and it would apply smooth and I wouldn’t get that after effect. So I haven’t used or gave any other brands a try so I decided to try kat von d and surprisingly no pale effect. The powder is pretty smooth and I can live with it. I am happy this ended up being a good review and I didn’t have to give any thumbs down to any products, I am also happy I picked up products I don’t regret buying. But thanks for reading my review remember to like & comment I always love hearing from you all!
