Marching In The Beauty Army Products - Fiafini, Control Corrective, Apothoderm, Aquolina, Egyptian Magic, Pssssst!

BeautyArmy  is $12 a month with the option to skip any month. What makes them different from most sample subscriptions is that you get to choose which 6 samples you want. There's generally a mix of standard packettes, deluxe sample and travel sizes (my Psssst is the size can sold in stores in the travel section) and often a full sized item. As I state in the video, I picked what I genuinely wanted to try, not necessarily the best DOLLAR value items available to me.

Fiafini Skincare Divine Hydration Marula Oil Moisturizer is fantastic- it moisturizes AND firms skin and calms my redness INSTANTLY! No more looking like W.C. Fields..... Marula oil is sadly overlooked by most companies. This is one of those instances where I was intrigued by a product for my sensitive skin but didn't want to buy something and have it not work. So yes, I got a packette sample- don't care- I wanted to test it before dropping $40 on a product I couldn't use. That's what samples are FOR, not to accumulate a Sephora in my house. (Which I've done anyway......)

Finally, complete complexion perfection with the moisture and anti-aging actives your skin craves. Get the divine skin of your dreams with fiafini. A hydrating and healing moisturizer that firms, minimizes wrinkles and restores elasticity, divine hydration moisturizer is the triple-targeted solution to the most common signs of aging. Formulated to be ultra-hydrating yet never heavy, this moisturizer helps soothe and calm redness with prickly pear, avocado and evening primrose extracts, while also reducing environmental stress on the skin. Powerful antioxidants marula oil and vitamin E fight fine lines and wrinkles, and help visibly firm and lift the skin for complete perfection, and as with all fiafini products, our moisturizer will always be free of fragrance, alcohol, mineral oil, and all parabens. No animal testing and vegan.

Control Corrective Redness Relief Serum
For sensitive, inflamed or Rosacea-prone skin. Botanical extracts plus skin-balancing vitamins reduce trans epidermal water loss, which in turn helps strengthen and balance the skin, reduce redness and inhibit future flare-ups. I'll be honest- can't tell you what I thought because it got eaten by my bathroom before I got to try it..... WHAH!!!!!!

 I'm normally not a huge fan of really sweet scents but for some reason I am ADDICTED to Pink Sugar. Maybe it's the addition of the peppery, spicy undernotes that elevate it from little girl to sexy. This is what Bath & Body Works scents strives to achieve- a playful sweet scent for adults.

Egyptian Magic All Purpose Skin Cream is a cult favorite for a reason- even Madonna is a huge fan! The label is an esoteric version of the Dr. Bronners labels making for some amusing bathroom reading.

Pssssst! Dry Shampoo  (I found it at Herbs Pro, an online health store at a 21% savings over other places!) This is the original spray dry shampoo and it does an amazing job of soaking up oil and refreshing your hair- even removes the smell of smoke! For blowout gals this is a lifesaver and maybe even more sore for those of us who prefer to hit the snooze button.
