Review of Bioque C Plus Moisturizer

I am more of a natural girl who goes makeup free most of the time. When I say most of the time, I mean like 99% of the time. The other one percent of the time I may wear lip gloss and/or mascara. But that’s usually if I’m going to be taking a picture that I know about. I don’t usually do the whole powder thing for some reason that I’m not really sure of. One thing I always use is moisturizer. I lotion constantly because I can’t stand dry skin. Dry skin? Ain’t nobody got time for that!

Sometimes, when I get to review a product it comes at just the perfect time. That was the case for this one. I was at the bottom of my jar of moisturizer that I have been using so I was due to have to pick up some more at the store. Instead, I got this in the mail. I am pretty picky about my facial moisturizer because I can break out if the moisturizer is too harsh. I have been using this one for about a week and a half now and I haven’t had any problems with irritability with my skin. Yay! I love the way this smells! To me it smells citrusy, like an orange, specifically. That might not be the same thing you think of when you smell it, but that’s what it smells like to me.

Another thing I like about this product is that it is very light. It feels like it is whipped, if you know what I mean. The consistency is thick but it goes on smoothly. It keeps my skin moisturized throughout the day. It can also be used to keep your skin moisturized overnight. You can use this product under makeup or other moisturizers. However, I only use this one. I prefer not to overdo it on moisturizer, and this one is enough for me.

Some of the pros of using Bioque:

+ It’s not tested on animals

+ It contains no parabens

+ It smells great

+ A little goes a long way


+ It costs $55 on Bioque.com so it might not be in everyone’s budget.

However, if you compare it to the price of a lot of quality moisturizers, I think it’s a good value. You need very little product and the generous 1.75 oz container will last you a long time. I would prefer to spend my money on good quality moisturizers to avoid dreaded dry skin that can creep up on me out of nowhere.

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

girl with pearl


Do you remember the first time you saw a certain piece of art? Whether it was in a book, or in person, certain works of art stay with us. It is that way for me with the piece I chose to review from Fulcrumgaller.com. The first time I saw this print was in print. It was for one of my humanities classes in college. You know, one of the classes you take where you probably don’t pay too much attention to what the teacher is saying but you look at the pictures. Wait, am I the only one who did that?

I chose to do a review of a framed print of Vermeer called, Girl with a Pearl Earring. The print features a young girl wearing a cloth wrapped around her hair. She is looking towards the painter, and she has a huge pearl earring in her ear. The background of the painting is dark, so your eye is really drawn to the girl and her earring. It seems like such a simple work of art, but I guess all of the really good paintings do.

I was super excited when it came in the mail. The box was large and I was worried for a minute that the framed print was much larger than I anticipated. However, once I opened it up I noticed that the box was bigger than the actual framed print in order to provide protection for it, which makes sense. There were no damages to the artwork, and now my biggest concern is where I can put it in my house! My husband already has a couple of things that he needs to hang- family pictures- but I want this to go up somewhere  so that I can see it regularly. Once that is decided, my Vermeer will be hung and our house will be just a little more beautiful because of that.

Thank you Fulcrumgallery.com for the beautiful art print! Click here to get one of your own!

Do you like washing with some smell good? I know I do! I got to try the new Dial Coconut Water body wash with refreshing mango. It smells ah-mazing! My husband is always excited when I get a new body wash to review because he is a body wash fan. I usually go with bar soap, although every now and then I like to mix things up. This is a great family body wash that we can all use. However, it’s home is my husband’s bathroom. My little guy and I each have our own soap.

We all need moisturizing soap to keep our skin healthy. My husband has used Dial Coconut Water body wash before, and it is good at hydrating his skin. Did I mention that it smells amazing? I like that this body wash doesn’t smell to guy-like or too girly. It’s a nice, fresh, neutral scent that can be used by anyone. Want to give it a try for yourself?

Review of Canvas from Canvashq


Lately, we have been taking a lot of pictures. Earlier this year we went on a cruise and this past week we went on another. That leads to tons of pictures that need to be developed. Of course, we have to get pictures for the grandparents too. I was excited to get to pick out a picture to have developed into a canvas print because we have never had one made before. This review is for Canvashq, a site where they can help you create a beautiful canvas print that you will be happy to hang up in your home.

The process of getting the canvas created was easy. I chose the picture that I wanted as well as the size of the canvas that I wanted. The picture goes to proofing where changes can be made to the picture. There is actually a person who looks at your picture to make it the best that it can be. I asked him to remove red eye and even some fingerprints. This picture is of my little boy sitting at the window seat on a cruise ship. When I sent the picture in to Canvashq, there were fingerprints that could be seen on the glass in the background. Now, the fingerprints are gone. The proofer did a GREAT job!!!

I would highly recommend Canvashq for prints. We love the print that we got of our little boy, and plan on hanging it up soon.
