Pore-Fectly Clear Charcoal Mask Review

Pore-Fectly Clear Charcoal Mask Review

I know I promised this post a week, maybe longer, back, but here it finally is Pore-Fectly Clear Charcoal Mask Review. I can’t say enough about this mask! I wanted something to help clean out the impurities in my skin and this truly helped. Going to try and make this blog post as simple as can be and highlight the pros and cons.

This product is made in the UK, made the Good Things company! It also states that it is suitable for vegetarians and vegans! It’s free from animal products, mineral oil, parabens, and sulfates! All bonuses when it comes to the products you use on your body!

Now what made this stick out to me is that it uses activated charcoal (obviously) and caffeine (not so obvious) to pull out the impurities. So that means goodbye gross black and white heads!

Pore-Fectly Clear Charcoal Mask


  • It works well
  • Does not dry out the skin
  • 3.3 Fl. Oz
  • Once a week use


  • None
  • Not Easily found in stores

I purchased Pore-Fectly Clear Charcoal Mask at T.J Maxx, typical price is $8.00 for a 3.3 fl ounce size. At T.J Maxx it was only $4.99. I haven’t been able to locate this at any other local stores. You can view more about Good Things by visiting their website. A quick search on ebay also says you can purchase it there!

Pore-Fectly Clear Charcoal Mask is definitely a product you want to head to T.J. Maxx and look for! Leaves your skin soft and not irritated or red!

Lulu Essentials Loofah Sponge Review #GotitFree

Lulu Essentials Loofah Sponge Review

This review is for Lulu Essentials Loofah Sponges, I am going to start out saying I am spoiled and buy mine from Bed, Bath and Beyond. They are like $15 dollars for 3.  I was very disappointed in my last set as they fell apart, so when given a chance to review a new brand off bath loofa sponges I jumped all over it, we also call these things bath poofs, I am not sure what you all call them.

These poofs are nice and soft, they are larger and very thick! Just what I want in a poof! A very little bit of soap goes a long way with these poofs, when I am feeling cheeky I like to use more soap! Okay, back to these loofah sponges they are amazing! There is not a low of words you can put into describing a bath poof though, and I can draw it out telling you over and over they are super soft (they are) and nice and thick (they are), the only thing I would change is the handle, needs to be a tad bit longer! I like to hang them from the handles in the shower and these barely fit over them.

But seriously look how big this poof is, I am not squeezing my hand around it, its resting around it! So now that you know I have the best loofah sponges known to man I bet your wondering where you can get these bad boys for yourself, say no more, I got you… Purchase Link

Tankini from HoTouch Review #HOTOUCH

Tankini from HoTouch Review

Enjoy this review for the HOTOUCH Tankini suit. Ordering online is always tricky, but, by reviews, it can help you remove some of the questions you might have when it comes to certain brands, especially when your ordering items with different sizing outside of the normal US sizing.

Today’s review is of a simplistic Tankini made by HoTouch.

I ordered an XL and wear a 12/14 in real life.

I found this suit to fit nicely, the straps are adjustable and if you have bigger boobs you know exactly how helpful this can be.

This tankini has serger seems, which means much more durability.

Along with slightly molded cups, so if you are already big breasted you don’t have to worry about this suit increasing your size. If you’re on the smaller side and looking for that, this is probably not the best option.

I would definitely say size up if you are ordering this suit though. It looks great on and the top is very flattering if you are trying to hide a belly.

The material is 85% polyamide and 15% polyester. There is some stretch to the material, but it holds its shape very well, even when wet.

All in all, I would rate this suit a 10 out of 10, for quality and attractiveness.


Chinese Clothing Yay or Nay?

Chinese Clothing Yay or Nay?

Chinese Clothing

You have probably seen many of the posts on what I expected and what I got when it comes to Chinese clothing, the truth is though there are very many Chinese sellers that have superb clothing.  How do I know this? I have been given the chance many times to review clothing. I have also researched through reviews on various sites and other bloggers like myself.

I have been able to clothe myself, my teenage daughter and my granddaughter (my adult daughter is on her own lol) for very reduced prices if not free. I have gotten some flops not going to lie, but mostly everything I get is absolutely gorgeous.

I have decided over the next few weeks I will be sharing some outfits I have gotten and the quality of these items to help break down some of the clothing shops online that offer some of the best items and some of the not so best. This will help others be more informed when trying to save money but still own stylish nice clothing.

The Skinny… pun intended.

A lot of Chinese clothing makes the basic slightly plump American feel like a fat ass though due to their sizing, but honestly, I cut the tags out and call it a day. Their large is like an XXL or XXXL, so plus size girls don’t let their sizing make you turn away, cut the tag! Lol

I hope my readers enjoy the posts over the next few weeks and it is enlightening to those who have been pondering if they should buy or not.

So tell me in the comments.. do you have a good or bad experience… Chinese clothing, Yay or Nay?

Oval Makeup Brush Set – Review

Oval Makeup Brush Set – Review

I have been on the hunt for a while now to purchase oval makeup brush set that won’t bust the bank or require me to auction off a kidney.

I have had the pleasure to review two sets of brushes:

Nestling Professional 10 PCS Soft Oval Makeup Brushes


Docolor 10 PCS Makeup Brush Set

Both looked exactly the same, only docolor has there brushes branded on each handle. I am going to break down the pro’s and con’s of both sets.

Oval Makeup Brush Set
Nestling Oval Makeup Brush Set

Nestling Brand


  • The handles flex, but do not over flex, minus the large one that seems to bend in half, it’s plastic though so eventually it will snap from doing this.
  • Bristles are all one length and did not require trimming
  • Very soft
  • No lose bristle’s when washing
  • Price: 16.99


  • A few brushes have weird bristles, they where smooched in. After washing they did return to normal and it did not affect the quality of use.
Oval Makeup Brush Set
Docolor Makeup Brush Set



  • You have the option to purchase with a brush organizer
  • Bristles are very soft


  • Organizer is cheap and you have to put it together.
  • Bristles where uneven and required trimming
  • The handles are flimsy, some have no give some have way to much give
  • Price: $ 36.99 with organizer $26.99 without (comes with brushing cleaning tool that is not worth the $10 difference)


All in all I did not care for the Docolor brushes at all, but loved the Nestling brushes. It seems quality control on Docolor is lacking big time. However the brushes from Docolor come with a 100% money back guarantee so if you wish to try them you will have an easy return process. Nestling does not offer the 100% money back guarantee but, these are purchased through Amazon so return is fairly simple if you do not like them.

I love these oval makeup brush set, but there are some I won’t be replacing like my normal eyeliner makeup brush it just works so much easier, then these types.

Do you have a brand of Oval Makeup Brush Set that you think are great? Drop us a comment and let us know the brand and where you purchased them from.

Disclaimer:  I recieved both of these sets at a discounted priced for testing and review purposes. My opinions are strictly my own and my honest opinion.

Ultra Lash New York Biology #LashesForDays

New York Biology Ultra Lash #LashesForDays

If you’re anything like me you might have these puny little eyelashes that are pitiful looking an no matter what you do they still look yucky. For example, mascara for it to have any effect it needs to be thick and then I look like Tammy Fay Baker got into a fight with a mascara wand. I have tried fiber lashes and I do love them, but I would like not to have to put them on every day and still look fabulous. That’s where Ultra Lash is going to help you.

So onto, New York Biology Ultra Lash, this is a thickening an growth like serum. I can say after a week my eyelashes darkened, and I am seeing some new growth, I decided to try half my eyelid to see if there would be actually results. I am including the picture so you can see the difference on the bottom alone, yeah the directions may not say to put them on the bottom and I did that at my own risk, but hey look at those results.

Ultra Lash

I am impressed, you should be too! Anyways, the little container of Ultra Lash runs about $21 and you can purchase your own at Ultra Lash on Amazon.

Now, you learned what I liked, now what I dont like is it makes your eyelids sticky at first then drys and feels like its cracking. My way around this is to put it on before bed and call it a day. Sometimes my eyes will be a little crusty in the morning but the truth is, its worth it if it keeps on working.

I received this product for free, in exchange for my honest opinion.

Awesome Sleep Bra #Mamaway

Mamaway Infrared Sleeping Bra


Okay, I am not nursing, but I needed a great sleep bra that would not bother me when sleeping. This design is perfect, and also a very common design in regular bras and not just nursing bras.

I wanted a non-wired sleep bra that would be comfortable and not feel as if I was wearing a bra to bed. When you have bigger boobs the last thing you want to do is deal with no support even when you’re sleeping/

Now, the bonus is the “Far Infrared” nano fibers, they help boost blood circulation and this is not just a positive for nursing moms but also us non nursing moms because the truth is increased blood flow does help your breasts grow, so if you want bigger boobs this might be a bonus for you.

Increased blood flows can even keep your boobs healthier and prevent sagging, so win win situation in my book.

I was really impressed with this sleep bra is the wider bands on the arm as this band aids in comfort at night and the band doesn’t even feel as if it’s there. This is a HUGE bonus when you’re supporting 36DDs in the middle of the night.

I did receive this bra for free for testing and review purposes. My opinion is strictly my own and I would suggest this bra to woman like me, who want added support during the night, but also want to ensure they are comfortable.

Review: Ulta Matte Lip Cream

Review: Ulta Matte Lip Cream

I love matte lipsticks, but sometimes they can make your lips feel so dry. I have mixed emotions on Ulta’s Matte Lip Cream, on one hand it’s not dry, on the other hand its dryer then a regular cream lipstick. So here you go, my review of Ulta Matte Lip Cream! Enjoy!

Review: Ulta Matte Lip Cream

I mean, your lips feel dry your reaching for some chapstick and all of a sudden matte lipsticks come out and we are all Whoa, Awesome, check out these matte lipsticks, wait, wtf, they are dry as the Mojave desert. If it’s a good matte that stains the lips where you can put some sort moistening agent on your lips. What’s sad is rarely do I suffer from dry lips, so some mattes are just maddening the way they make your lips feel.

This is a compromise; it dries, but yet doesn’t make your lips feel like the Mojave desert, more like a desert next to an oasis, there is a slight moistness to it.

Review: Ulta Matte Lip Cream

Now, that we are past all that, I absolutely love this color, its muted and dark.. which I love. I have an olive complexion so I have to watch a lot of the colors I wear.  The color of this is Allusive, it’s a plum like color, but deeper.

Review: Ulta Matte Lip Cream

I’d rate this a 4.3 out of 5.

Taking of that .07 due to it just not being cream, and a bit dryer then I would come to expect from a lip cream.

To purchase go to Ulta Lip Cream and as of today they are having a buy 2 get 2 free sale and the price of these is only $9.00, that’s pretty much close to drug store costs, but with the b2g2, your spending $4.50 each. So you’re able to try out 4 different colors for next to nothing.

And no disclaimers are needed on this post, because there are no affiliate links to Ulta and I bought this myself..
