Butter London Nail Polish: "I'm really big on nail polish and absolutely loved that the package came with SIX colors from Butter London's Sweetie Shop Collection. The color I have on is Kerfuffle. This light pink is perfect for the start of spring and its subtleness pairs well with my outfits for work or play."
Clairsonic Surf Mia2: "I rarely use anything else besides soap and water to wash my face at night since I have sensitive skin so I was skeptical about using the Clairsonic. The first time I tried it, however, I found my skin feeling soft and extremely clean. The plus side is that my face didn't have any bad reactions to the Clairsonic cleanser. "
Kai Body Lotion: "I was born and raised in Hawaii so the Kai lotion smells exactly like the plumeria flowers that grow abundantly in Hawaii. It triggered happy memories of having a plumeria tucked behind my ear during a day at the beach or dancing hula wearing a lei of plumerias. Not only does it smell great, but it leaves my skin feeling hydrated and not oily like other lotions tend to do."
Vapour Organic Beauty Aura Multi-Use Blush: "I am a fan of make-up that is compact and easy to use so I definitely love the Vapour Blush stick. The color compliments my skin and the compact stick is perfect for when I am on the go and don't have time (or patience) to do my make-up at home."
