Reviewing some new goodies from a recent Babbleboxx: Beat the Heat! Read what I think about these products (+ coupon codes for purchasing) after the jump!
I LOVE to try out new fragrances and when they're in pretty bottles they double as decor in my room or on my desk. ;) This is Tempting by Sofia Vergara and I loved it as soon as I sprayed it on my arm! I always gravitate towards fruit scents and this one encompasses juicy exotic fruits, bold floral accents and vibrant wood notes. It's flirty and feminine, but not too sweet -- just how I like my scents. The 1 oz. fragrance is currently available exclusively at Perfumania online and in stores. The 3.4 oz. (as well as the 1 oz.) will hit major retailers nationwide in September.
These Nad’s Exfoliating Body Wax Strips pleasantly surprised me. This is the world's first exfoliating waxing strip, so I was really eager to try it out. I've tried at-hone wax strips before, but they haven't worked that well. These are patented with Nad's Xfol™ technology and not only do they smell good (like pomegranate and grapefruit), but they really work! It's all in the two-step method. The exfoliating side buffs away buildup of dead skin cells and releases trapped ingrown hair, which allows the premium wax to adhere better to the skin and remove even more hair. The exfoliration helps minimize and prevent the occurence of pesky ingrown hairs (something that almost always happens when I try at-home wax strips), while keeping my skin feeling smooth, hairless and glowing.
You might recognize this shot from my Instagram. This Vichy Aqualia Thermal Mineral Water Gel Moisturizer is SO GOOD, y'all! It's a fortifying 48 Hour hydrating fresh water gel moisturizer with hyaluronic acid. This is my second time trying a gel moisturizer and I am so hooked. Once you go gel you never go back. ;) Vichy's water gel moisturizer is ultra-light and super cooling. The Mineralizing Thermal Water strengthens skin against external aggressor. The Hyaluronic Acid (which is able to retain up to 1000x it's weight in water) leaves the skin plumped with moisture. The Aquabioryl acts more deeply in the epidermis for a long-lasting hydrating and soothing effect, and the Y-Carrageenans reinforce the skin barrier, locking in hydrating for hours and smoothing the skin's surface. It delivers the moisture my skin craves and leaves my skin looking healthy and radiant. It's light-weight and oil-free too -- which is perfect for those hot summer months.It's non-greasy, non-sticky and paraben-free, so it's perfect for those with normal to combo skin. Use it morning and night!

Speaking of water, who else is addicted to Lacroix like I am?! Seriously I drink about 5 cans a day! It's my fave and it keeps me hydrated. I don't know about y'all but I've always struggled with drinking water throughout the day. I like lemon water, but it gets boring after awhile. There's nothing quite like a sparkling water and Lacroix has the best flavors. They taste so good and you don't have to worry about calories or sweeteners because it's all natural (0 sodium, 0 sugars/sweeteners, 0 caffeine, 0 calories/fat). The LaCroix Cúrate flavors are slightly bolder than Lacroix and they're inspired by two cultures: French & Spanish and the LaCroix Cúrate family includes 6 flavors, all of which come in 12oz. tall cans, and all of which have slightly bolder flavors than LaCroix (I also love the cerise limón and the pomme bayá). The LaCroix Cúrate Melón Pomelo is a bold combination of ripe cantaloupe, infused with pink grapefruit. So refreshing! A tangy duo with a touch of sweetness!
I am such a fan of the Butter™ London brand! You may recall me reviewing some of their other products in my last Babbleboxx here. I always look foward to wearing fun nail polish in the summer, so when I saw this Butter™ London Lost In Leisure Lacquer Set I couldn't wait to paint my nails (my daughter Courtney couldn't wait either!). These colors just scream summer! I was torn between the pink ( ) and the deep blue ( ) , but ultimately went with the blue (my second fave color to green). These rich pigments provide one stroke coverage (which I love) and a high shine finish that's chip resistant wear. Butter London does not add Formaldehyde, Formaldehyde Resin, DBP, Toluene, Camphor, Ethyl Tosylamide, Xylene, or TPHP to any of its nail product formulas.
