Alter Ego April Polish Pick Up Exclusive: Altarf aka Beta Cancri

Good evening!  Hoe's your Thursday?  Mine has been pretty uneventful thus far, but I've pretty much laying low at my house all day.  My chest is actually aching and it's making it hard (or at least uncomfortable) for me to breathe easily.  Not sure if I'm fighting something or if I over used my  upper back/shoulder muscles at the gym last night and now they're sore.  So my aches and pains re a mystery to me...much like space!  The actual theme for the April PPU is Across the Universe: Planets and Galaxies.  I have a few polishes to share with you this month so let's start this party off with Alter Ego's Altarf aka Beta Cancri.  You'll be able to purchase Altarf aka Beta Cancri from 4/6 - 4/9 for $7.50.  Set your alarms because you don't want to miss out on this month!  Let's jump in and check out the polish!

786 Cosmetics; Petra & Istanbul

Evening friends!  Tonight I come to you from the comfortable front seat of my car while I wait for my kids to finish their soccer practices.  I'll be here for a good 2 hours before I get to head home, boo hoo.  At least it's not raining!  Well for tonight's post I have I have a new to me brand to share with you.  786 Cosmetics is a Halal nail polish brand that is vegan, 7-free, alcohol free, no animal products, no animal testing and Wudu friendly.  Let me preface this by saying I'm definitely not knowledgeable in Muslim practices or understand the meaning behind the need for no barriers/breathable makeup.  The 786 site does a good job giving a quick explanation but if you want to go in depth I'd suggest hitting up google.  What you'll also notice on the 786 website is that there's a nice selection of natural shades to choose from and they aren't overly pricey.  I have Istanbul and Petra to share with you now, both are currently available on the site.  Let's check them out!

Beauty Review: Glossier

Oh hai! Guess what?  I have yet another beauty product review for you! Hey you know, sometimes it gets tiring to only do nail polish all the time!  I like skin care and makeup and bath products as much as the next guy and gal.  So I have to tell you that back in the summer I was on the hunt for some serums.  They were all the rage and I wanted in on the fun.  Well after lots of Amazon and Instagram searching I came across Glossier and was really intrigued...the models looked so clean and shiny and happy.  I wanted to be those models (or at least just clean and shiny and happy).  So I took the plunge and and ordered some stuff.  Ok I'm lying.  I bought a lot.  And I've made more purchases, mostly refill products, because I have been so pleased with the brand!  Glossier is dermatologist tested, hypoallergenic, non-irritating, paraben free, alcohol free, and they do NOT test on animals.  Their line ranges from skin care and makeup to body and fragrance.  Alrighty, this is a huge post so lets get started.  Oh and if you want to try Glossier you can save 10% today using the link HERE.

Envy Lacquer Bath & Body Products: Soap Envy Jelly Soap & Whipped Soap

Morning beauts!  Since I seem to be on a roll with body care products I figured I'd keep it going with a few products from Envy Lacquer.  Ok here's the deal though, I purchased these from the Indie Shop San Francisco which was back in August or September of 2017.  Yes, I still have untried stuff from then, but these I tried almost immediately because they were so interesting.  I've just been too swamped with deadlines to post them.  The Envy brand is currently being revamped so the website is empty at the moment but there's an ETA of March 24th to reopen with products, including the Whipped Soap and Jell Soap, YAY!  I totally suggest you try them out as I really enjoyed both.  Even Naomi got quite a laugh from the jiggly soap and it made shower time pretty fun!  And keep an eye on the Indie Shop Page for upcoming events (the March event is sold out).

Skin Care Review; Wild Seeds Utility Cream

Evening dolls!  Sorry for the late post but I had to get out with the fam for a bit and now we are winding down. But I really wanted to get back online to share a post with you featuring natural skin care products that I have been enjoying for a few months now.  Wild Seeds Utility Cream is a small, family owned business that has a line of handmade products, created in beautiful Santa Cruz.  These products are all natural, pesticide and chemical free, and use high quality ingredients including (but not limited to) olive oil, shea butter and essential oils.  The balms feel luxurious, a little goes a long way, but I never feel "greasy" or "oily" just moisturized.  They absorb into my skin quickly also.  You can purchase Wild Seeds products with or without THC oil.  Wild Seeds ships anywhere in the USA, but will be limited to where they can send THC infused products (I believe they can only mail within California as of right now).  Please keep in mind all these products are for topical use only - do not consume them.  With that all said, if you are in the market for some all-natural skin/body balms I'd like to point you in the direction of Wild Seeds Utility Cream!  Let's jump in and we can delve into the products!
