Black Friday And Cyber Monday Sales 2018

Black firday and cyber monday deals

Its that time of year again, turkey and family followed by days of deals. This is always the time to get the best deals on Christmas gifts or just something special for yourself that you wouldn’t normally splurge on.

Black firday and cyber monday deals

 

That’s right it is time for those Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals. Just like last year I will continue to add to the list over the next few days as I find things, but this is going to be the majority of it.

Yes some of the links are affiliate links, but not all of them. Each year I try to give you only a list of the stores I believe to be giving a great deal that you can not get the rest of the year from that store, or at least not most of the year. And just like previous years, this will consist of mainly plus size clothing sales, but it will also have some beauty and other types of products. And this year I have added a section for subscription boxes as well. I will make it easy and list in categories and then in alphabetical order. So, if you are looking for Torrid, look in the plus size fashion section and then look for the T’s. Store names will be clickable and all their sales will be listed below their names.

Product Review – Vitamin Sea Beauty Sea Kelp & Charcoal – Firming & Polishing Body Scrub

Vitamin Sea Beauty Sea Kelp & Charcoal Body Scrub

If you caught my post titled My First Order From Riley Rose, then you already know that I purchased this Vitamin Sea Beauty Sea Kelp & Charcoal Firming & Polishing Body Scrub during that order.

Vitamin Sea Beauty Sea Kelp & Charcoal Body Scrub

In addition to being my first order from Riley Rose, this was my first time trying anything from the brand Vitamin Sea Beauty. And let me just say now, that is a totally cute name for a brand that uses ingredients from the ocean.

So there were a few things that initially interested me in trying this product. I do use a lot of body scrubs, especially in the summer time. They quit making my favorite one, and I had been struggling to find one that didn’t irritate my Balsam of Peru contact allergy. I usually, not always just usually, have good success with product contain kelp. The same really goes for charcoal. I didn’t see anything that stood out in the ingredient list that would trigger a reaction other than fragrance, and fragrance can mean a lot of things. I don’t react to all types of fragrance. So I felt pretty confident that this might work for me going in.

As you can see on the label this body scrub boasts a few claims. Here is what it says it will do:

  • Scrubs away dry skin
  • Smoothes knees and elbows
  • Clears blackheads
  • Perks up skin

I think the name also implies that it will have some firming properties.

What I personally am looking for in a body scrub. I need something that is moisturizing for my dry skin and that can exfoliate gently, but deeply. I need little to no fragrance, and I am always looking for something that doesn’t contain an ingredient that I will react to. I use scrubs year round on my legs after I shave or wax, and under my breast. You all know that area under your breast where you sweat and if you don’t exfoliate you start to get a rash. I increase my use in the summer because of heat and the an increase in shaving and waxing. I don’t typically get a lot of blackheads on my face, but I do get them on my shoulders, so if it works for that its kind of a bonus.

First let’s take a look at the actual product.

Inside the jar of Vitamin Sea Kelp and Charcoal Body Scrub

This was obviously taken after I had already used out of the jar a couple of time, but it doesn’t really change what you are able to see. You can see the charcoal bits in there if you look close. They have been milled pretty finely, so no big harsh pieces.

A bit of the Vitamin Sea body scrub on my finger

I wanted to get a bit on my finger for a close up so you could get a better idea of this products texture. It’s not like the typical salt or sugar body scrub where it’s really grainy surrounded by liquids. This has almost the consistency of a body butter with the scrub aspect from the charcoal in it. It’s unlike anything I have every personally tried. Even with this picture being so close up you can barely see the bits of charcoal because of how finely milled it is.

I have now used this product for about four weeks. And I use it four times a week approximately. I just leave it in the shower so it is convenient to use when I want. I even packed some in a travel jar when I went on vacation.

I have not had any allergic reactions to the product, which I am really happy about. Of course I am not using it near my face where most of my reactions happen, however I have had reactions in the past to products that got nowhere near my face. The fragrance is super subtle, and it does not linger on the skin after you use it. It smell a bit like the beach after a storm if you have ever been there for that. Definitely not like fake ocean scented candles or perfume, but more fresh and clean. It’s a bit hard to explain beyond that or maybe I am just really bad at describing scents.

I was exceptionally happy with how well it worked at exfoliating under the breast area without feeling harsh. I also think it does a decent job at exfoliating the places I shave. I don’t think it does quite as well as my past favorite I am trying to replace, but this comes closer than anything else I have every tried. As for blackheads, I noticed it does clear out any that are closer to the surface, but any that are a little deeper it doesn’t really touch. I really don’t think I see any difference in the firmness of my skin, but I also don’t think that I have very much skin that isn’t firm in areas I would use this body scrub.

Overall I am really happy with the Vitamin Sea Beauty Sea Kelp & Charcoal Body Scrub. I most likely will be repurchasing this in the future. If you are interested in trying this for yourself then or trying other products from this brand you can find them on the Riley Rose website as well as Vitamin Sea Beauty’s website.

Tell me in the comments if you have tried any of the products from Vitamin Sea Beauty and what you thought of them.

My First Order From Riley Rose

What I ordered from Riley Rose

A few weeks ago I posted a new store alert for Riley Rose. In that post I mentioned I had already placed an order with them. So now I thought I would share what I ordered and how the actual process went.

I placed my order for three item on Monday July 2, 2018, and it arrived on Wednesday July 11, 2018. And it shows it shipped from Los Angeles, CA. So it took just over a week to reach me here in Kentucky from the time I ordered it. Really not bad, especially considering Riley Rose is a new company.

The package that arrived was a plain brown box. If you have received any beauty prescription boxes before, the box is made very similarly, just on a larger scale. And on the box they had placed a large sticker of their logo to make sure we know where it came from.

Riley Rose Logo Sticker on the shipping box.

When you open the box, written on the lid is “I could give up shopping but I’m not a quitter.” And on the interior is several layers of various types of filler. I’m including pictures of all of it.

Inside the lid and first layer of wrapping from Riley Rose order.

 

Second layer of wrap in my Riley Rose order is they own tissue paper.

 

Third layer of wrap in my Riley Rose order

I am not entirely sure what this third layer is. I haven’t gotten anything like this in any other order from any other company. It is almost as thick as a blanket, but seems to be made out of something like thick paper towel. I am guessing it is some sort of recycled material they are using for packing, but it just seemed like the oddest thing to me because of how thick it was and the texture. If any of you know what it is for sure or have received something with this material let me know in the comments.

I did think that the Riley Rose print tissue paper was super cute. The color coordinating air pockets were a nice touch. And I love the little extra bit of cute with the print inside the box. This brown paper was the final layer of wrap. It would have been nice if it had matched the pink theme since the rest all seemed to color co-ordinate, but that’s just me. Sometimes I like to go over-board with the matchy matchy.

And under all that was my order.

What was in my first Riley Rose order

The packaging was definitely secure. I don’t think you would have to worry about anything rolling around and breaking. And the box itself is very sturdy. Something pretty heavy would have to fall on it before it could be crushed.

Now let’s take a look at what I actually got in my first order.

Sea Kelp & Charcoal – Firming & Polishing Body Scrub bought at Riley Rose

First I got this Sea Kelp & Charcoal – Firming & Polishing Body Scrub from Vitamin Sea Beauty. I love a good body scrub, especially in the summer time. I have never tried this brand, but I have pretty high expectations.

SOO AE Intense Repair 3Day Hair Treatment

My hair is still feeling the after effects of the last shampoo and conditioner review I did. So I decided to pick up this Intense Repair 3Day Hair Treatment from SOO AE. I am really hoping this will help repair my hair so I can get back to the hair care reviews.

SOO AE Keeping Glow Coconut Jelly Mask bought from Riley Rose

Finally I picked up this Keeping Glow Coconut Jelly Mask also from SOO AE. I picked this up because even though my skin is doing some better, it’s still feeling dry AF. Besides, coconut cures everything, right? But seriously, my skin really is dry and I haven’t every tried one of these Jelly Masks before. So I picked this one up.

What I ordered from Riley Rose

That was my complete order. I know it was a small order, but I really just wanted to be able to review the order process. I will try to post some reviews of these products for you later once I get a chance to try them out. Also, if there is something specific any of you want me to try out and review from the Riley Rose website let me know in the comments. I am always happy to do that for the readers of my blog.

New Store Alert: Riley Rose

The last time I posted about a new store was when Torrid’s sister store Lovesick came around, and of course we know the head corporation has put them on pause for now. But as of recent a few new stores in various categories have come under my radar. Some I found out about because the companies have reached out to me, and some I just happened to stumble upon myself. But I thought since I am still in that period where I am having issues with health, now might be a great time to do some less labor intensive posts like share some info on these new stores.


Shop Riley Rose

Today I want to introduce you to Riley Rose. I found out about Riley Rose when the company emailed me asking me to join their affiliate program. Now if you read my post about affiliate links, you know lots of companies contact me all the time. But 90% of them have no interest to me or have nothing to do with any of the things I blog about. But once I took a look at the Riley Rose website, I knew they were a company made for me and so many of you.

Riley Rose is a beauty and lifestyle brand created by the same company that owns Forever 21. Chances are there is not a store close to you at this point, as they are pretty new and only have a handful of stores. The closest location to me right now seems to be in Chicago. But the great news is we can always order over the internet and they offer free shipping with any order of $40 or more.

Riley Rose Store Front

 

They carry a variety of makeup, skin care, hair care, accessories, and home décor. And while they are owned by Forever 21, they do carry things that will appeal to all ages. Just in the skin care line alone there is a range of high-end brands, indie brands, Korean/Asian brands, and brands that cater to the all natural lovers. There is something for every budget as well.

One of the things that stood out to me was the variety of brands that they carry are ones that I either already use or had a lot of interest in. The mix is typically ones I would have to shop two or three stores to get, or even in some cases purchase directly from the brand because I can’t find them anywhere else.

I have placed an order with Riley Rose, but we will talk about what I order once I get it. I most likely will do a review at that point. But for now I wanted to share a few of the interesting products that I spotted on the Riley Rose website. Each of the pictures will be clickable if you want to find the product on the Riley Rose website.
