Review: Olay Complete All day moisturizer

Hello my MJF stars,
I thought I would do a little review of the Olay Moisturizer that I have been liking for awhile. I picked it up a two pack from Big Lot's on a whim. Since I need a new moisturizer with sunscreen. 

Front of the bottle

Back of bottle

I have been using Olay All Day Moisturizer in Sensitive which I never tried before but I thought it would be safe for my sensitive face. I like that it has 15 spf which I need. I used it when I was on my vacation Palm Springs so I can tell you this stuff is good. I did not get sun burned on my face even when I was sweating. I liked how it was not greasy and absorbed in my skin to made it feel soft and not oily. It also had no smell which is nice and can be worn under face makeup. I even think it got rid of some of the redness on my face. Since I have a mild case of rosacea on my cheeks. It also got rid of some dry patches on my face from eczema. 

So I would totally recommend this product.

I hope you enjoyed this review.

Big Lots Haul

Hello my MJF stars,
I have two Big Lot's hauls to show that I thought I put together as one big haul. So let's get into what I hauled.



In this first haul I went to find Micellar water by Epielle brand which you know by following me I love there face makeup wipes. I did not find the Micellar water but I did fond them in wipes which are called Micellar  cleansing tissues so I picked up one to try which they were $2.99. I also found some Real Techniques brushes and I saw this silicone liner brush for $3.00 and thought I would give it a try. I also got Covergirl lashblast volume mascara for $1.50 which is a really good price since full size is 13 ml for about $6 or $7 and this 10ml for $1.50. I have never tried this mascara before so I thought a give a try. I picked up another Epielle product which is the snail moisturizing mask which I tried other mask by Epielle and never try a snail one so I got one for $2.00. I saw this Curel Ultra Healing hand therapy for $2.50. I had to get It to try since I'm always looking for good hand cream for my eczema prone hands. The last Epielle product I got in this haul was this Deep Pore Charcoal Cleanser which I never tried a charcoal cleaner or any of the Epielle so I thought I would give it a try since it was only $3.00 and it smells so good. The last thing I got was a bluray of Night at the Museum that was $5.00 even thought I already own it on Dvd but I really like this movie and wanted on bluray.


In haul they were having the 20% day so I picked up few things. I saw the LED Letter Box and had to have it. It was $8.00 but with 20% off it was $6.40. I also picked more of Facial Essence Mask Activated Charcoal by Epielle which I really liked for $2.00 with 20% it was $1.60. I picked up another tube of the Covergirl lashblast volume mascara for $1.50 with 20% it was $1.20. I saw this Freeman cucumber peel-off gel mask which I never tried a peel off gel mask so I thought get it to try since it was $3.30 with 20% off it was $2.64. The last thing I got was Olay Complete All day moisturizer 2 pack because need a new moisturizer and thought I give this a try since it was $8.00 with 20% so it was $6.40 for two is $3.20 each which is a good price for one is $6.94 at Wal-Mart.

Products I used:
Revlon Colorstay Base coat
Orly Skinny Dip
China Glaze Let Your Twilight Sparkle
Jordana Quick Shine Top coat

Since Let You Twilight Sparkle is a pretty glitter blue polish. I thought it would look pretty over Orly Skinny Dip which a matte pool blue with hit of shimmer in it. I really love how they both look together. I think the are a perfect combo. I really like Let Your Twilight Sparkle which is a blue with duo chrome glitter that shifts from blue, pink and I kinda see purple it so pretty and the pictures don't do it justice. I might have to get the regular size. If you love glitter and blue you need this polish because it so pretty and has a nice formula. I only used one coat on top of 3 coats of Skinny Dip.

I hope you enjoyed this week mani for manicure Mondays.

Bath and Body Works Haul

Hello my MJF stars,
I have two Bath and Body Works hauls to show you. So lets get into what I got.



When they were having the sale I went in to just look around at BBW in the City (SF) and found Halloween items that I could not pass up for 75% off. I got Purrfect Pumpkin shower spell since I did not pick one up during Halloween last year. I also found one of the Purrfect pumpkin fright fragrance which the sprayer is little bent but still works and also wanted but my BBW did not have any left during Halloween last year and was happy to find one on sale. So all together they were like $8.00 with tax which is less for one item full price.


I had some coupons so I went in to see what they had left after the sale. They still had few items on sale but nothing I wanted. I did picked up a 5 pocketbac's since I have been using the once in my stash. I got Friyay, 2 of the A unicorn ate my home work, Pretty as a peach, peach bellini. I smelled the mermaid pocketbac but did not like the smell so I got two of the Unicorn ones. They were 5 for $6 and I had 20% off so they were less than $1.00 each. I also had a coupon for a free item for $5 so I got Pretty as a peach shower gel in 3 fl oz.

I hope you enjoyed seeing this haul.

So I got one of the green apple and aloha coconut which I really like both scents.

Hello my MJF stars,
I have another Disney Movie Rewards Redeeming haul. I again found two things that I could not pass up to use my points. So lets see what I got this time.



The first thing I got was Disney Tarzan blu-ray + DVD + digital hd copie for 900 points which I don't own and I thought it was worth the 900 points which most of the blurays are 1,000 points. I'm so happy to add it to my Disney movie collection.


The other thing I got was the new Funko Pop The Pirates of the Caribbean dead men tell no tale of Jack Sparrow for 750 points. I was so happy to find it on the Disney Movie Rewards because I was trying to buy it at Hot topic but they sold out and I was really bummed that I could not get it. So I'm so happy to get it for free by using my points even thought it got a little banged up in the mail. I wish had points to get the other pops in the pirates collection they had but I used most of them up because they been getting really good rewards lately. Anyways, I really happy own my only Jack Sparrow pop and to add it to my growing collection.
