Olive + M: Clean Skincare that Works!

Disclosure: I received products from Olive + M to help facilitate this review. (All posts may contain affiliate links or sponsored content. Please see my disclosure policy)

I was recently given the opportunity to try products from the Olive + M line and was so excited to do so! Let me first tell you that I love their mission. They were created from the belief that what you put on your body is just as important as what you put in your body. To me, that is so important! Olive + M believes in being radiant by nature. 

Now, I have to be honest with you, I was a bit skeptical at first since I knew that these products were oil-based. My skin tends to be on the oily side at times during the summer months, so I was afraid that these products would make them even more oily. Boy, was I wrong! Even though all of the Olive + M products are olive oil-based products that contain natural, plant-based ingredients, these factors all help to create a brighter complexion while diminishing those fine lines and wrinkles. In addition, they help to protect against environmental stressors like pollution, and they even help to fight acne and unwanted bacteria. 

Olive + M Cleansing Oil– This oil dissolves dirt and bacteria on your face while nourishing your skin with a natural blend of antioxidants, vitamins, omegas and amino acids. I also love how it smells! It is filled with the aroma of warm, fresh floral and herbal notes with an airy citrus finish.

One of the things that I noticed right away with the cleansing oil was just how much impurities that it removed. It really does a fantastic job of getting rid of makeup and all of the buildup from each day, without much effort on your part. 

Olive + M Face Oil– I know what you are probably thinking, you are going to moisturize your skin with face oil? That was my reaction at first as well, but let me tell you, this product is amazing! In fact, Olive + M Face Oil is their number one best seller! To me, that says a lot about a product! This Face Oil is light, natural formula is rich in antioxidants, vitamins, omegas and amino acids, and it leaves your complexion soft and glowing. In addition, it also smells so divine!  It is full of rich notes of a blend of green, floral notes and light woody facets with aromatic, minty touches. I really love how this product makes my face feel. It is not oily or greasy and dries to a nice dewy appearance. If you try one product from Olive + M, I highly recommend that you give this one a try! 

Olive + M Body Oil– Who doesn’t love a good body oil? This one from Olive + M is fantastic! Olive + M Body Oil is a concentrated blend of pink grapefruit, bergamot and clary sage. Yes, it smells heavenly! I like to apply Olive + M Body Oil right after I get out of the shower. It leaves my skin feeling hydrated and moisturized. You can even apply a few drops in a hot bath if you prefer. I haven’t tried that yet, but plan to very soon! 

In addition to ordering from Olive + M directly on their website, I am so happy to tell you that Olive + M is now available at your local Target! The next time that you are there, be sure to take a look at the products for yourself. I am certain that you will love them as much as I have!

A Younique Review: Moodstruck Epic 4D One-Step Fiber Mascara + More!

Disclosure: I was provided with product to facilitate this review. All thoughts and opinions are my own. (Please see my disclosure policy)

If you have been a My Sweet Savings reader for any amount of time now, you know how much that I love Younique products! My college friend Wendi, is a purple status Younique presenter and does such an amazing job showcasing this brand. I am always so grateful and excited when she offers for me to review products and share my thoughts with you! You can check out the entire lineup of Younique products HERE.

I was given the opportunity to review the newly released Moodstruck Epic 4D One-Step Fiber Mascara, along with the Touch Mineral skin perfecting concealer (I wear the color Velour), Touch stick foundation (I wear the color Chiffon) and the Touch Behold SPF broad spectrum finishing powder in Medium.

Moodstruck Epic 4D One-Step Fiber Mascara

This mascara is a remarkable product and delivers unlike any mascara you have ever seen! If you are wanting thicker, fuller and longer-looking lashes, this product is for you! Don’t pay for lash extensions! This mascara will give you what you need without the high price tag! Moodstruck Epic 4D One-Step Fiber Mascara has Y‑shaped fibers and a specially engineered two-sided brush to interlock fibers for lash volume, length, and lift like you’ve never seen in real life. Just look and my with and without picture above! Ummmm……hello lashes! 

Touch Stick Foundation

This foundation is a medium-to-full coverage foundation with a velvety finish, as a pin-point concealer, and as an anytime touch-up accessory. Combine it with other shades for highlighting and contouring to get a defined, sculpted look in no time. With this stick foundation, you’re always covered. This product is so multi-faceted and you can use it in so many different ways. It will be more than your everyday concealer! I just love the velvety, medium-to full buildable coverage that it provides! 

Touch Behold SPF 25 Broad Spectrum Finishing Powder

As we get older it is so important to wear a finishing powder that has SPF in it. This setting powder from Younique is beyond exceptional! Embrace daily sun care with the next-level finishing powder that doesn’t just lock in your look. I love how this powder sets your makeup and blurs fine lines and wrinkles all while protecting your skin from the sun’s harmful rays.

Touch Mineral Skin Perfecting Concealer 

This concealer is by far the best concealer that I have ever used. This lightweight full-coverage concealer helps hide everything from scars and burns to tattoos, discoloration, and other imperfections. Its exceptional silky texture nourishes and moisturizes the skin with key ingredients like Vegetable Lanolin, which consists of shea butter, glyceryl rosinate, and Olea Europaea. State-of-the-art microsphere technology provides camera-ready silky skin with a natural no-makeup look.

I have tried so many different concealers and have spent so much money trying to find the perfect one. This concealer from Younique goes on like a dream and it doesn’t take much to do the job! One tube will last you such a long time! In fact, I have barely even touched the surface of mine and I have had it for quite some time. It has such full coverage and lasts all day long. Those factors are so important to me when choosing a concealer, and this one does it all! I also love how it gives my eyes such a nice glow and brightens my face!

Review of Fernberry Products

Disclosure: I received products from Fernberry to facilitate this post. All thoughts and opinions are my own. Please see my disclosure policy)

I was recently sent a box of products from the lovely folks at Fernberry and I was so excited to review them!

The Fernberry 101

Fernberry makes ethical Japanese beauty products that deliver effective moisture replenishment to your skin, restoring its youthful radiance. All of Fernberry’s natural and ethical beauty products from Japan contain Next Generation Hydration, a super-moisture absorbing ingredient derived from Hyaluronic Acid that restores your skin’s youthful radiance.

Its intricate molecular structure penetrates deeper into your skin and releases replenishing moisture and nutrients over a long period of time.”

I received the Fernberry Moisturizing Mousse, Fernberry Replenishing Smoothie Conditioning Foot Cream, Fernberry Petals & Cream Hand Cream and the Fernberry Mochi Lips to review. I have enjoyed using each of the products and the results that they offer. 

Fernberry Moisturizing Mousse– First of all, this product smells amazing! The scent of blueberry combined with Japanese Yuzu is so refreshing! This is like no other body scrub that I have used, and contains ultra-fine sea salt crystals that remove dead skin cells and cleanse your pores, leaving skin feeling super smooth and revitalized. Made with free-radical-busting Japanese Yuzu and Blueberry, it is specially formulated for everyday use.

Fernberry Replenishing Smoothie Conditioning Foot Cream– I love a good foot cream! As someone who has very rough and dry feet, I am always on the lookout for a foot cream that will not only soften my feet, but keep them smooth as well. Fernberry Replenishing Smoothie Conditioning Foot Cream is a light, velvety blend that will leave your heels hydrated, and the rest of your feet feeling utterly pampered. Japanese Tsubaki oil, Rice Bran oil and Shea Butter deliver just the perfect amount of moisture to keep your feet silky soft.

Fernberry Petals & Cream Hand Cream Don’t you love smooth and soft hands? Fernberry Petals & Cream hand cream is enriched with Japanese Yuzu, Ume, Sakura and Tsubaki oil, so your hands look younger and feel as soft as a petal. Fast-absorbing, and packed with vitamins and antioxidants, the natural Japanese ingredients of this luxurious lotion work to smooth and brighten your skin tone, improve elasticity, soften cuticles, and restore vitality to your nails. My hands have never felt softer since using this product! 

Fernberry Mochi Lips– I have such a hard time with chapped dry lips and am always on the lookout for a product that will help with this. Fernberry Mochi Lips is made from a A luscious blend of Japanese Yuzu, Tsubaki Flower, Sweet Almond And Sunflower Seed Oils. Mochi Lips instantly softens and conditions dry lips to make them plump, soft and supple.

Overall, I am loving these products from Fernberry and think that it is a remarkable brand! All of the products that I reviewed seem like top-of-the-line products that you would find in the best department stores. You can also tell that the company has great pride in their products. Be sure to check out all of the products that Fernberry offers and let me know your thoughts!
