Pumpkin Carving Day!

A couple of Saturdays ago we carved pumpkins! Which means I did all the carving and de-gutting of Fumiko’s pumpkin and de-gutted Sascha’s pumpkin. Anyways they both turned into cat pumpkins! Sadly the pumpkins only lasted a couple of days after they got carved. D: they rotted and fell apart.

Eucalyptus Soap

Review: Wholly Hemp Eucalyptus Soap

press sample

Official description
Surround yourself in the calming aroma of fresh eucalyptus. Clear your senses (and your sinuses!) with a cooling tingle that melts away the stress of the day. This pH-balanced face, body, and hair bar hydrates and refreshes skin while eucalyptus acts as a natural anti-inflammatory and antibacterial cleanser.

Where to buy
From Wholly Hemp – A 4 ounce bar for $5.00 USD.

Directions
To use as shampoo, work into a lather and apply to hair, then rinse.

Packaging
I received a sample. It came in a clear, sealed baggie. It’s labeled with its name and the shop.

Scent and formula
It smells like castor soap and eucalyptus. It lathers decently, the bubbles are a little watery, the lather isn’t thick. The bar itself is kind of a pale ywllowy olive green color.

Ingredients
Saponified hemp-coconut-palm-sunflower oil, eucalyptus oil, rosemary extract.

I received this sample for free! Awhile ago Wholly Hemp offered free samples of soap on reddit and I jumped at the chance to try it! I received my sample in less than a week. It smells good. I got the Eucalyptus scent, but they offer many other scents. It smells like castor soap and eucalyptus. It lathers well. I used it on my body and as a shampoo. As a shampoo it cleansed really well, though it did dry my ends out. They are dry and damaged from bleaching. As a body soap I found that it dried my skin out. I already have dry skin that reacts oddly to things. I was expecting it to dry my skin, but hoping it wouldn’t. I ended up giving the sample to my daughter who loved it and used it up. For her it worked great and actually moisturized her skin! My skin is just weird. I have read lots of good things from other people about the soap. Even though it didn’t work for me think it’s a really good product and you should try it out and see if it works for you. :) Chances are you’ll probably like it!

Thursday Guest Post

Sparkle, Baby, Sparkle!

Hello everyone! I’m Karoliina from Bones & Lilies. Luna asked me to do a guest post and I was very happy, I love this blog! So here’s a little look I did today, just for you :)

DSC_0025

I used the new palette by Sugarpill. It’s called Sparkle Baby and it has a wonderful pastel theme going on. I was a bit hesitant at first, since I’m not the biggest fan of pastel shades, but the colours go so well together and have a gorgeous water color effect that I think I’ll be using only this palette for some time!

DSC_0015

Sparkle Baby palette. From left to right: Kitten Parade, Frostine, Candy Crush and Hotsy Totsy. I really love how much effort Sugarpill puts into the palette design, the visuals are always different and have a theme!

 

 

DSC_0023

 

 

I used Frostine, the lavender shade, for the inner corners and as a brow bone highlight. It looks a lot darker on the palette than on skin, with my skin tone it worked really well as a highlight. Frostine has a little bit of sparkle, but less than the other shades.

On the lid is Candy Crush, a light blue/aqua. It’s very sparkly and very light, a very pretty shade on its own, too. I’m also an avid Candy Crush Saga player so the name appeals to me ;D

For the crease I chose Kitten Parade. It’s a light peach colour with a gold shift. It’s the reason I originally was interested in the palette, just the name of the shade alone is great, and I love peach tones with a shift, like Sugarpill‘s Asteria and Fyrinnae‘s Rapunzel Had Extensions

To darken the crease further, I added a touch of Hotsy Totsy. It’s the darkest shade in the palette, a dark cool toned pink. It blends very nicely with Kitten Parade but I wouldn’t put it next to Candy Crush. I padded some Kitten Parade on top of Hotsy Totsy to blend it in better.

DSC_0026

All in all I really like this palette. The water color like effect is something I like very much, and not all shades can be used for it. Sparkle Baby has the perfect light, pastel toned shades that have lots of sparkle to really bring your look to life in sunlight!

And one more artsy shot to show how the shades blend together nicely!

After she smelled it!

Review: Children’s Advil® Sugar-Free Dye-Free Suspension

press sample

Hi Skullies! I have a review for Children’s Advil® Sugar-Free Dye-Free Suspension! I received a bottle and some coupons from Smiley 360. :D

Official description
When your child has a fever, you know what it’s like to wait it out. Children’s Advil® Suspension reduces fever fast* – even faster than Children’s Tylenol®. It lasts longer*, too – up to 8 hours with just one dose. And Children’s Advil® also relieves aches and pains.

Where to buy
From CVS – 4 ounces for $6.99 USD.
From Amazon – 4 ounces for $5.99 USD.

Directions

  • Shake well before using.
  • Repeat dose every 6 to 8 hours, if needed.
  • Do not use more than 4 times in 24 hours.
  • Find right dosage on the chart. If possible, use weight for dosage; otherwise, use age.
  • Only use the measuring device that comes with the product to be sure you give the right dose. An ordinary kitchen teaspoon may not hold the right amount of medicine.
Weight(lb) Age(yr) Dose(tsp)
Under 24 lb Under 2 yr Ask a doctor
24 – 35 lb 2 – 3 yr 1 tsp
36 – 47 lb 4 – 5 yr 1 ½ tsp
48 – 59 lb 6 – 8 yr 2 tsp
60 – 71 lb 9 – 10 yr 2 ½ tsp
72 – 95 lb 11 yr 3 tsp

Packaging
It’s a white 4 ounce bottle that comes in a blue box. It has product information on the box and the bottle. The box and bottle both have yellow, red and black features with the logo.

Scent and formula
It smells like berries! Fumiko says it’s sweet and tastes like berries and it tastes good, not gross.

Ingredients
Active: Ibuprofen 100 mg (NSAID)* Fever reducer/Pain reliever. Inactive: artificial flavor, carboxymethylcellulose sodium, citric acid monohydrate, edetate disodium, glycerin, microcrystalline cellulose, polysorbate 80, propylene glycol, purified water, sodium benzoate, sodium citrate, sorbitol solution, sucralose, xanthan gum.

When I received this Fumiko was sick. Normally I just buy whatever store brand I happen to find. We were almost out of what we had, so I was really glad to get this. Giving Fumiko any kind of liquid medicine is a nightmare. She HATES the taste, it makes her gag and she usually gets a stomach ache. I’ve usually got to chase her down and corner her and then it takes me a good 10 minutes to get her to take it. This stuff is great. It’s dye free and sugar free and she likes it. I don’t have to fight her to take this, she takes it willingly. During the day she’s able to go to school and take part and function and not be a zombie, but at night she passes out cold and sleeps through the night. She gets horrible fevers when she gets sick and is just miserable with aches and pains and being tired and cranky. This keeps her fevers down and the aches to a minimum. This was a huge blessing to get! I will be keeping a bottle of this on hand for future sick times! I definitely recommend it, it works great! You might have trouble finding it in store. I can’t seem to find it, however it’s available online at several stores! Seriously pick this up. You can find their Facebook page here. And lastly you can get a $1 coupon here!

FOTD Alichino & Scarmiglione like Mallow & Morphine

The sun has been out off and on today! I wanted to do a look with Aromaleigh’s Alichino and My Pretty Zombie‘s Morphine blush. And so I did! I like them both very much. Also I tried something new! I applied my false lashes under my lashes instead of over. I must say it was easier to apply them and it looks better. I saw a video on youtube of someone doing it, though I can’t remember who it was. D:
