#TryDry: DrySpray by Degree


I got into the Influenster #TryDry box from Unilever and Walmart a month or so ago.

They sent me this bottle of DrySpray by Degree, free in exchange for an honest review.

I've been using it daily since it arrived. Through Zumba, Aikido, and hour and a half walks, this stuff keeps me surprisingly dry even compared to the Clinical Strength deodorant I'd been using prior. I just have a few pieces of advice: spray before you put on anything, even your bra. This stuff tends to cake onto whatever is nearby and can turn into an icky mess on fabric. And if you're looking for an invisible deodorant? This one isn't going to be it. I've yet to find that Holy Grail.

Despite that, I would suggest this to anyone wanting to try out a dry spray. Thanks Degree, Walmart, and Influenster!

I wasted my money on Jamberry

I'm always looking for an easier way to do my nails. I bought these quite awhile back but never used them. The concept is easy to understand and you'd think they're hard to mess up... I should have known *shakes head*

These puppies are $15 a piece, which you're probably balking at right about now. The only good thing is, you get multiple uses out of the sheet.

The actual application instructions are below, it's from the company's website.

Simple, right? I can't even get simple right *shakes head*

I was getting pissy from heating it up the second time and the poor results. It's hard to see in the picture above, but I couldn't get it to stick to my nails around the edges. I'm not sure if I didn't get it hot enough, didn't press hard enough, because it was old, or what. All I know is I wasted my money, and my fingers hurt from the heat. And I'm grumpy.

BrushEgg - How I wash my make up brushes

I ran across someone picture of a BrushEgg sometime last month and was like oh my gosh why have I never heard of this before?! A BrushEgg is basically a little silicone (half) egg shaped item that has grooves on one side to help you clean your make up brushes easily. I found one on ebay for $1.32 and bought it immediately.

The package arrived and I grabbed my baby shampoo and the brush egg and set to work.

Here's what the back of it looks like.

I put some of the baby shampoo on the egg.

Then I get the dirty make up brush damp then scrub.

 Andddd it's filthy. After they're clean, I squeeze out the excess water from the brush.

I have a towel on the side of the sink ready for the brushes to dry. I roll one side so it's elevated and have the brushes tilted brush hair side down so water does not get to the glue. If it gets to the glue it can cause the hairs on the make up brushes fall out.

Here's a comparison picture of one of the brushes!

All in all I'm VERY pleased with this product. I'd say it did cut down on the time taken to clean my make up brushes and it was easy to use. If you don't want to wait a week or two to get one from China I'd suggest getting one of those silicone pot holders with grooves in it like the picture below. Should be the same concept!

Wet N Wild Spring 2015 LE Silver Lake Eyeshadow Collection

I had to stop by Walgreens this afternoon and was so excited to see several of the 2015 Spring Limited Edition Wet N Wild palettes. I snagged the two I had been lusting after, so check out the swatches below. Each shadow is buttery smooth and super pigmented. I'm in love!

The ones I snagged were Vinyl Collection, and Thrift Store Chic. Pricing was $3.99 each.

Vinyl Collection

Thrift Store Chic
The dark purple color in Thrift Store Chic is the most interesting shade of the bunch. It's a bit of purple and a bit of pink in the finish. Can't wait to play around with it!
