Review Hourglass Ambient Blush

Hi again all-
I know I am sure behind on this but I still thought people might like to hear what I had to say about these blushes.
I do own one of the ambient lighting powders and I like it but I don't wow love it.  SO I was slightly hesitant when I heard about these.  I did however pick up two of them and then one more later.  I only ended up keeping two of them.  Mood Exposure and Dim Infusion.  I have however since purchased another in Etherial Glow.  I have been using one of them every single day since i have purchased them.  I think the combination of radiating powder and the blush just works amazingly.  They are very easy to work with and blend for a seemless look.  I think they are going to be perfect for summer.
Here are some photos and swatches of the two I have.
 Mood is on the left and Dim in on the right.

Price- 3.5/5
Product Overall- 4-4.5/5

Review First Aid Beauty Cleanser, Mask and Moisturizer

Hi again all-
A little while ago I was contacted by First Aid Beauty to try a few of their items.  I have heard a lot of people talk about their products but I had never really found a reason to try their products.  The draw was just not there for me ever though i had heard people rave about them.  Can I say I am so glad that I tried them, because I would not have found this cleanser (my fav item) if I had not.  So on to the review.
I will start with my favorite.
Skin Rescue Deep Cleanser with Red Clay.
This item is by far my favorite in the items i was sent.  It really gets my skin feeling clean with out making it tight or dry feeling.  Even us oily skin girls shouldn't be using something that makes our skin feel to dry and tight.  :o( It red in color, doesn't really foam but you can tell when it is on your face, and it is super smooth and easy to use.
I use this cleanser both morning and night and at night I use it on my clarsonic.  I love the way my skin feels after using it with my clarsonic.  I have already purchased a back up at the Sephora VIB Sale.  See that video here.

The next item
Skin Rescue Purifying Mask with Red Clay
Now I will start by saying that I am horrible about remembering to put a mask on.  I will go for peels and facials, but at home I just forget or don't make the time for them.  I really had to remember to use this. When I did use it it is a thick and sticky and difficult to spread on your face.  It is supposed to be a mask that peels off your face after it dries.  Well the first time I guess I didn't put enough on in order for it to peel- so I had to wash it off.  My skin did feel very nice and tight, but not in a drying tight way.  Thenext time i tried it I kept trying and trying to get a thicker layer on.  I thought I had it but this time I was only able to peel a piece here or there,  SO I personally don't feel as if it is a good Peeling mask, but it is a nice mask that you can wash off.  I have tried it a few more times and I just can't master the peeling.  Haha.  It is also red in color.

The next item
Ultra Repair Liquid Recovery
Funny thing with my oily skin I thought that I would love this because it gives moisture yet isn't heavy.  which is true.  Maybe it is my age now (40) but I didn't feel like it gave me enough moisture.  The bottle is super cool and different.  It is way easier to use than I had anticipated.  I just didn't fall in love with it.

So I hope you found this review helpful and I will having a new review coming up on some skincare that I feel in love with only after 2 days of using it.  That never happens with me.  I always always think you need at least a month to know if you love something.

Please let m know if you have any questions.


Sorry the video post will not be in this video until next week, since I will be away traveling.
