Beauty Army: February 2012

Hello, my Pretties!

Obviously, I don't have to mention to you that I am late on sharing my February Beauty Army kit with you.  Man, where are the days going?  Time is going too, too fast and I am fighting everyday just to keep up.  And I think I'm failing at that...I'm always so far behind, actually!

Hello, Beautiful!

6 little gifts for me.

February 2012 Beauty Army Kit.

Indie Lee the Body Scrub
Coconut Citrus
Sample Size: 1.6 oz

"Delivers a dose of pampered, sexy skin.  The essential oils create a calming, light, lemon scent to start or end your day."

Oh-my-gosh!  This stuff smells so good!  So, so very good!

LaRocca Skincare 24K Exfoliating Cream Facial Cleanser
Sample size: 1 oz.

"A silky cream with a gentle exfoliant that dissolves makeup quickly while it moisturizes and stimulates collagen growth."

Sounds good to me!

Joico K-Pak Revitaluxe
Sample size: 1.7 oz

"A luxury hair treatment clinically proven to instantly correct years of damage.  Hair becomes automatically stronger, softer, and more moisturized."

I am totally interested in this product.  My naturally curly hair is so long right now.  It's only a couple of inches above my waist!  I've never had it this long and I haven't cut in forever and a day so it is terribly damaged.  I hope this helps.

Weleda Iris Hydrating Facial Lotion
Sample size: 0.17 oz

"This all natural face cream is a light, fast-absorbing cream that regulates your natural moisture balance and provides long-lasting protecting against drying out."

I think I have combination skin.  Some spots are oily some spots are dry.  But if I'd have to chose one or the other, my skin is way more dry than oily.  Especially during the winter time, my face tends to dry out.  I hope this will heal my skin and get it back to my "youthful" looking self!

Sun FX Body Shimmer
Sample size: 2.2 oz

"Add a little sparkle to your night out with this hydrating and illuminating body shimmer.  This easy-to-use cream keeps your skin nourished and glowing all night long."

Honestly, I chose this product because #1 I didn't know what else to pick and #2 it's a full size product.  I don't tend to go out and party and want shimmery skin but what the heck.

Myface Cosmetics Blingtone Eyeshadow
Crystalline Green
Sample size: FULL SIZE

Fingertip swatch.


"Create a wicked wash of colour and dramatic wet-looking shine.  Blingtone eyeshadows glide on smoothly and won't drop or flake."

I love this color.  So pretty.  Very mermaid-y.  I love the amount of shimmer that it has.  NOTE TO SELF: Don't use Blingtone Eyeshadow with Sun FX Body Shimmer or may cause shimmer overkill!

My apologizes for posting so late.  I received my kit on February 18th and just did the blog post today.  Bad, bad beauty blogger.  I have also done a YouTube video showing my Beauty Army kit for the first time but I just haven't posted it yet.  Bad, bad beauty vlogger.

I'm sorry that I have let my everyday life issues get in the way of my blogging.  I will do my best to keep up next time!

Luv & Luk,

SIDE NOTE: All words in Italics were taken straight from the Beauty Army website.

P.S. My March Beauty Army kit is probably waiting at the post office for me so stay tuned for that one.  I will do my best to post it before April!

♥♥ I paid for this Beauty Army kit with my own money.  Beauty Army is a monthly beauty subscription service where you can pick your beauty samples, up to 6, for a flat rate of $12 a month. ♥♥


  1. Oh don't worry about your last posting, girl! Real life is supposed to get in the way! <3 Wow, I am really impressed with all of the stuff you got from Beauty Army. It looks like you picked some wonderful things to try out. I am most intrigued about that yummy looking/smelling scrub and the hair treatment! So now I have a request: please post a pic of your long hair!! I think you usually wear it back, but I would love to see a picture of it - maybe you could post an after picture when you use that awesome hair stuff! :)
    PS - I think men like shiny things so with that in mind, maybe you could find a good use for that body shimmer stuff... ;) lol!

    1. LOL! Angie, oh, sweet Angie. You never fail to make me smile :) I am happy with this kit. I love the smell of the body scrub! I haven't tried it yet but I'm getting ready to go show now and I will probably take it with me! The hair treatment leaves my hair very soft to the touch. I haven't seen a difference in the texture or look of it. I've used it twice. My hair is naturally curly and very, very damaged at this point since I have not cut it in a very long time. Maybe I need more than a sample size! LOL. And I think you're right. Men like shiny things. It is spring break for us after all...wink wink :) LOL xxoo :)

  2. WOWZA! This is the first swatch that I have seen of this shade!
    Welcome back!

    1. Awww, thank you! It feels good to be back but I already know that I won't be as regular as I used to be. (That sounds like I need to try some Activia or something LOL.) I will do my best to keep my blog and my YT somewhat active. And I'm surprised this is the first swatch you have seen of this shadow. It's so pretty! XXOO

    1. So far I'm liking the stuff :) I still need to try a few things but I'm not complaining :)

  4. Dont you worry BBB and WELCOME Back.

    1. Thank you, BBB! Yeah, I think this last February kit was a good one :) I'm happy with it.

  5. You have been tagged!

    1. Sorry for the late reply but thank you so much!

  6. I love seeing what people choose for their BA boxes! I love that shimmer lotion, so glamorous! :)

    1. Haha, me too! I've tried the shimmer lotion just quickly on my hands and it's pretty :)

  7. There are so many sample boxes popping up everywhere I don't know which one to join. This one seems great though. You got a lot of great goodies. Have you tried any of the other ones?

    1. I know! I was overwhelmed with all the monthly subscription boxes. I don't know why I decided to try this one. Maybe because it was new and I'd be a part of something new. LOL. I'm happy with it. I think I will stick with them. But I haven't tried any other subscription box yet. Yet!

  8. Nice products,make sure you check out my blog,I tagged you in the 11 things we don't know bout you tag. Take your time to get to eat.


    1. Aw, thank you so much. Life has taken over lately and I've been away from the blogging world for so long so I'm thankful that you thought of me to join in the tag. Thanks so much!

  9. Wow nice products, i love that shimmer shadow! Welcome back i've missed your posts and also on twitter!!

    1. I've missed you all so much! I've been gone so long and I think that will be my new normal if I continue to blog. So sad. The shadow is very cool!
