We are finally approaching the spring season and that means it’s time to break out the fresh faced products. COVERGIRL’s new Vitalist Collection includes the perfect products for a dewy and bright spring makeup look.

COVERGIRL Vitalist Healthy Concealer

With spring ahead, I’ve switched my normal daily concealer with the Vitalist Healthy Concealer Pen in the shade Medium. It has a soft-brush applicator that allows you to smoothly and precisely apply the product onto your face.

The Vitalist Healthy Concealer Pen contains vitamin-infused formula which brightens your complexion for a fresh and healthy look. I like applying this concealer under my eyes to help hide those pesky dark circles and to brighten up my eyes and make myself look more awake.

COVERGIRL Vitalist Healthy Powder

As an oily, combination skin type of girl, I typically have to set my face with a powder. I would say it’s a must for me, but I have a hard time finding a powder product that doesn’t make my face look cakey or that can withstand my long work days. I gave the COVERGIRL Vitalist Healthy Powder (shade: Buff Beige) a try, and I was amazed!

This setting powder was created with built-in hydration and lightweight formula that reduces shine for natural-looking skin. After I applied it to my face, I was shocked at how flawless my skin looked. The best part is the lightweight formulation! I could see the full coverage flawless effect, but I couldn’t feel it, which is wonderful!

What’s a spring look without a little glow!?! Although we already tend to shine a little brighter during this time of year, a little highlighter couldn’t hurt. COVERGIRL’s Vitalist Healthy Glow Highlighter in Moonbeam is a gorgeous white-toned, cream-based highlighter. This product adds a beautiful, natural glow to the cheek bones. You honestly makes you look like you are glowing from within! The Vitalist Healthy Glow Highlighter is available in multiple hues that make your skin look naturally radiant.

As a lover of beauty products, I get so excited when I get a chance to try new skincare items. The best part is discovering products that actually works wonders for my skin. Unfortunately, this only happens on rare occasions. I have sensitive, extra oily and acne-prone skin. So it’s quite a challenge to keep my skin looking fresh and flawless at all times.

I was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to collaborate with Our Happy Box and try out Ryor skincare products. I will be honest, I was skeptical of the products before I tried them and fell in love. I am so happy to be sharing my thoughts on these products with you and hope you give them a try.


Ryor’s Two Phase Makeup Removal Emulsion is an evening make-up remover, including the eye area. It clears impurities and cleanses the skin. The formula has two layers, which means you must shake the solution before using.

This emulsion is by far the BEST makeup remover I have ever used. I typically only use the product on my eyes. I take two cotton swabs, give them a nice coat of the product and hold them on my eyes for a few seconds. It literally melts off my make up. It’s like MAGIC.


Ryor Soothing Serum For Oil Skin is a serum enriched with plant extract made to minimize large pores. The seaweed in the serum helps reduce sebum formation, whereas the alpine plant extracts aid to dilate the pores.

I apply a pea size amount of this serum on my face in the morning, after I cleanse my face. I noticed a big difference in the look and feel of my skin. The serum makes my skin look and feel smoother than a baby’s bottom.


Ryor Mattifying Cream with Powder-Effect is a unique cream that contains high contents of microparticles that creates a matte and powdery finish. It’s made up of sea mayweed extract to soothe, tonify, and protect the skin from free radicals.

I put this cream on top of my serum, before I apply my moisturizer. This product is an oil tamer. Usually throughout the day, my skin becomes very greasy and I have to blot my face a couple times. But with this cream, I notice my skin staying matte for most of the day. I only start to see shine appear towards the end of the day, which is a huge improvement.


I find that the Soothing Serum and Mattifying Cream are the perfect duo to apply before make-up, and the Two Phase Emulsion is great for taking off your makeup. Overall, I am very impressed with all the products and I would highly recommend checking them out.

I had the pleasure of receiving a package from frecklefarms organics. Their products are formulated with a selection of organic, high performance and plant based ingredients. Their skincare line is made to “improve the skin’s appearance and health, while also stimulating creativity, self esteem, intuition, love and sexuality.” After reading more about their brand, I was extremely excited and delighted to try out their products.

I have been on the hunt for a really good facial serum, especially with the colder months approaching. So, I was so happy to find frecklefarm organics ‘prana’- Revitalizing Face Serum from their Goddess Collection in my box. This serum is a blend of high performance fruit and flower oils packed with vitamins A, B, C and E, as well as omega 3, 6, 9 and 7 + minerals such as magnesium, iron, calcium and potassium. The serums are formulated to hydrate your skin and give you a radiant, youthful glow.

After using the serum for over a week, I can already tell a difference in my skin. I feel like my skin is more hydrated and supple. It has really helped improve my skin tone and texture. I can also see a big difference in the brightness and glow of my skin.

The serum is known to have antidepressant benefits. The scent of the serum is earthy and herbal, which in my opinion makes it very relaxing. It’s a pretty strong scent and some may find it overwhelming, but I really enjoy the scent. Plus the benefits of using this product is amazing.

In my package I also received a travel sized ‘balance’ Organic Face Toner, which is a hydrating rose toner. I was instructed to use the toner prior to applying the ‘prana’ face serum. I typically spray the toner right after I wash my face and then apply the serum. The toner disperses in a light mist and is super refreshing. The scent is also calming. I think he serum-toner combo go very well together.

img_8045img_8048I highly recommend giving frecklefarm organics a try. Their products are all organic, fair-trade and natural ingredients. Frecklefarm organics also supports animal and human rights by donating a portion of all their profits to organizations “that are dedicated to building sustainable communities governed by abundance, oneness, love, peace and freedom for all.”It doesn’t stop there, they are 100% vegan, cruelty free and their packaging is reusable and biodegradable.

I am so glad I got a chance review these wonderful products. I want to give frecklefarm organics a huge thank you for everything! ♡

Klairs Midnight Blue Calming Cream has been an essential in my skincare routine. I’ve never been one to rave about a skincare product, ever. My skin is pretty oily, especially in my T-zone and prone to acne. Most products irritate my skin, causing break outs and overall just don’t work for me. When I received this product in the mail I wasn’t expecting to fall in love with it.

I tried out this calming cream, applying it day and night after washing my face. During the day, I also apply a moisturizer with SPF. So, initially I was expecting my face to be extra oily with so much product on my face, but surprising that didn’t happen.

I have been using this cream for a week and I haven’t experienced any breakouts, which is remarkable. My skin feels supple and a lot smoother. On days that I wear makeup, I can tell a big difference in the application of my makeup and my skin has a nice glow.

This cream absorbs into the skin pretty smoothly. The only problem I’ve had with it is when I try rubbing the product in too much and I develop some residue on my face. The best way to apply it is to lightly rub it in and let the cream sink in. Do not rub too much.

I am so happy that I’ve found a skincare product that my skin loves. This product has done exactly what it intended to do. It soothed my skin and I haven’t experienced a breakout since.
