Hey girls! Hope everyone is doing awesome, I wanted to share the fairly new NYX Honey Dew Me Up Serum & Primer that I have been enjoying lately! It’s been super hot here, and I’ve been craving a lighter, more hydrated face for everyday. I was in passing through a makeup isle and came across this little beauty from NYX! I was immediately intrigued due to the packaging, I love anything gold!! The price tag was a bit steep for NYX at $16, but I had to try it none the less. I have anything with honey in it for the skin, it really helps to moisturize my skin and keep it looking radiant. It has a light serumy texture with tiny little gold flecks! It’s really hydrating on the skin without feeling heavy or sticky, it almost has a watery-gel texture. It’s really nice under makeup, and does help makeup apply more evenly. As far as longevity, it keeps my makeup looking fresh and my skin feeling awesome. Highly recommend!

She was nice enough to send me some of her lovely soaps to try, these are the Lavender with Hops & Honey full soap bar, and the Wexford Strawberry soap bar. They are hefty bars, and clearly handmade. I love the amazing smells and textures of these soaps! The Lavender soap is lightly scented, nothing over powering and slightly sweet. The Wexford Strawberry soap is to DIE for!!! It smells so yummy!! Like a big bushel of sweet strawberries!! 😀
Here are the back of the labels, they each have a little story and description of the ingredients! I like that small personal touch! 🙂
This is about how big a full bar is, pretty big! It will probably last a long time, and a few of these in a box would be an awesome gift!! If you aren’t sure what to get, she offers a Soap Sampler, a great stocking stuffer idea, which has a few slivers of her soaps to try! The soaps are very moisturizing, and don’t leave a weird residue on the skin like some commercial bar soaps. It feels kind of between a glycerin and cream bar soap. It leaves your skin clean, and fresh smelling!
Here are the ingredients, I like that there are less than like 10 ingredients, some commercial brands I just don’t know what the heck I’m putting onto my skin!!
The last thing in my little package was the Vetyver Body Balm. It does come in different scents, but I was curious about this scent, plus it had a pink label! 🙂 It smells like a light musk, but there is a definitely scent of beeswax. I like that it’s in a push-up tube form, very hand indeed! Directions for solid lotion: Just push the tube up, and apply generously. . If you get some on your hands, just rub it in. It’s lotion! Done naturally. No preservatives. No fillers.
Here are the ingredients, again, all natural and easy to understand! I absolutely love coconut oil, it makes my skin so smooth and moisturized! This is the perfect little balm for him or her, to keep those dry bits on your body, soft and smooth during the winter months.
I really like this body balm/solid lotion. It really makes my skin very soft and moisturized. I like using this on my hands, feet, knees, elbows, and cuticles. I wish I had gotten the Wexford Strawberry scent and that would have smells delicious, but this one it great as well! I can share it with my husband without him smelling girly. 🙂
Here’s her card that she also included in the package, it has her e-mail, Etsy shop link, and contact info! Definitely give her a shout! 🙂 She is a very nice lday!
