attention target shoppers

Hi everybody The other day I was at Target......
I feel like when you walk into Target its like walking into the twilight zone lol
No matter what you are going to walk out spending $50.00 or more....

I went there to get work jeans for the hubby I walked out with

As you can tell there is a lot more then just 2 pairs of work jeans....

The other day I was watching Youtube(always looking for new makeup tips) and I came across this thing called the $20.00 challenge....So I thought I would try it.
The rules are that everything you use on your face in total has to be no more then $20.00....
Holy crap that was hard but I did it...I will tell you more about that soon

Then still looking in makeup(bad Erin) I saw this kit by Sonia Kashuk its a Limited Edition "Escape To Paradise" Face Palette
I'm such a sucker for any pallets that look like summer lol

I also found the smokey eye kit from Physicians Formula and some sally Hanson stick on nails all on clearance

Can I just say for the $20.00 that the Sonia Kashuk kit worth the money it is amazing. I did do a look with it and I will post it soon with my review.

Just wanted to show you my shopping trip at target one of my fav stores....Love you Target :)

Till Next Time....Happy Target shopping

Green Apple Peel

A few weeks ago I was at Ulta and I saw this new line there called Juice Beauty

Juice Beauty is a Organic Skincare line. I played around with the testers for a little. The smell is a little funky but it is organic lol. I picked up the Green Apple peel for sensitive skin went home and got a little info on Juice Beauty..

Karen Behnke

Brand Story

Juice Beauty… high efficacy yet authentically organic beauty solutions masterminded by a California team passionate about healthy lifestyles and whose organic products are backed by powerful science.
It all started when Karen Behnke, serial wellness entrepreneur, who built one of the first corporate wellness companies in the country, developed a keen interest in personal care products upon becoming pregnant with her first child at the age of 40. She was astounded to learn that, although the skin absorbs over 60% of what is placed on it, there were very few available healthy personal care products that worked well.
Karen subsequently bought the name “Juice Beauty” and launched the Company. Juice Beauty’s mission is to bring high efficacy, authentically organic, and pleasurable beauty solutions to people worldwide. Juice Beauty is proud to fulfill this mission with their clinically validated products supported by solid eco-values including the purchasing from certified organic farmers and manufacturing with California’s sun (solar power).
Karen has assembled a team of experienced professionals and scientists who are pioneering organic efficacy within the beauty products industry. Juice Beauty, with its unique antioxidant packed organic juice base, is featured in retailers throughout North America and Asia and was awarded its first patent for the unique Green Apple Peel formulation.

Clinically Validated Age Defying and Blemish Clearing Results

Juice Beauty uses powerful ingredients such as alpha lipoic acid, coenzyme Q10, DMAE, peptides, fat soluble Vitamin C and essential fatty acids for optimum results proven by clinical studies that have shown an 85% reduction in free radical skin cell damage (which means less wrinkles and sun spots!).

Authentically Organic Antioxidant Juice Base

Most beauty products that use “organic” in their marketing use only a few organic ingredients in a water base, making the total organic content dilute and often less than 5%. Instead of the typical water base that cannot be certified “organic or pesticide free,” Juice Beauty puts over 100 USDA certified organic powerful ingredients into a 100% certified organic juice base (made from over 30 different juices) thus bringing the total organic content up to 98% in every product.

Commitment to Healthy Ingredients

The Juice Beauty team continually searches the West Coast for the purest, most effective organic ingredients, including organic juices, aloe vera, honey, botanicals, plant oils, and raw cane sugar from farms that specialize in sustainable and organic farming.
These amazing formulations are made without parabens, petroleum, propylene or butylene glycol, sodium lauryl sulfates, pesticides, phthalates, artificial dyes or synthetic fragrances.
Juice Beauty is the Organic Solution

This info is from

So here it is my review on the Green Apple Peel
This patented organic fruit acid complex with raw cane sugar exfoliates to reduce breakouts, discolorations and fine lines. Heals while hydrating with rejuvenating algae, vitamins and antioxidants for a smooth, glowing complexion. Green Apple Peel Sensitive is ideal for all skin types except those with rosacea or extremely sensitive skin.
The Peel comes in a glass jar
It has a light brown color to it and it does have a funky smell to it
I wish it smelled a little better but when you go organic its not about the smell
Start with a clean face...I have been using purity by Philosophy and always my clarisonic
After your skin is clean make sure it is damp before putting on the peel
Take a small amount and place a nice layer on your face...Do not put on eye lids or lips
give the peel 10 min or so....It will have a little tingle feeling because its exfoliating your skin
when 10 min have past your skin will be sticky and your will feel your skin tighter. You will also see some redness but that will go away fast..Don't worry
rinse face off with warm water...make sure its not to cold and not to hot... then use your fav eye cream and moisturizer
The thing I like most about my skin is that it feels smooth and soft and it has this great glow. This peel is for skin with acne....I don't really have acne so I got the sensitive one so its not so hard for my skin but I like to us it once a week to help prevent breakout's
Check out Juice Beauty they have a ton of great things...But if you check it out at Ulta or you can find the Alicia Silverstone for Juice Beauty Collection

A collaboration with eco-celebrity Alicia Silverstone. From organic skincare to quick application color....The tinted moisturizer is really nice in the Alicia Silverstone line...
