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!

They now offer the Younique Beauty Guide which allows you to try on products virtually before you buy them. That way there is no guesswork in the process. I just love that!

My FASTer Way to Fat Loss Update

Disclosure: I have been provided with sponsorship to the FASTer Way to Weight Loss for the next 6 weeks in exchange for my review. All thoughts are my own. Please see my disclosure policy)

Açaí Bowls are one of my favorite ways to break my fast on regular macro days! 

It has been just under one month since I began the FASTer Way to Fat Loss, and I am super excited to share with you my thoughts on the program so far. I have seen some amazing results, and am feeling SO good! I have a lot of energy and feel very good about the whole nutrition that I am giving my body each day. The mission of FASTer Way has quickly become my mission and goal, Don’t allow perfection to be the enemy of good. Commit to a healthy lifestyle and focus on making steps toward better health.” I definitely feel so much better about myself and am making great strides toward a healthy lifestyle thanks to this amazing program!

Look at all of this delicious and REAL food! 

The FASTer Way to Fat Loss is not a diet. It is a lifestyle change that is composed of eating clean, whole foods. I have been eating gluten free and dairy free (as much as possible) and not missing those things at all! There is absolutely no deprivation with this program, and you eat a ton of food! There are some days that I have a hard time eating all my food! You will even have room in your macros for treats so don’t worry about feeling deprived of those things. 

What has the FASTer Way to Fat Loss done for me so far? It has changed the way that I look at food. It is all about fueling your body with the whole nutrition that it needs and craves. I love that we track everything we are eating each day. This really helps me to stay on plan and on track with my macros.

Intermittent fasting and carb cycling are also great tools and a big component of this program. Don’t let those terms scare you. Intermittent fasting is actually very simple and easy once you get the hang of it. I usually stop eating each night by 8-9pm and won’t break my fast until around 1pm the next day. You are actually doing most of your fasting while you are sleeping. And, you can still have coffee or tea. Just keep it under 50 calories and only use a Stevia to sweeten it. I take mine with Nutpods or Almond Milk and have not even missed regular coffee creamer. Oh, and let me tell you about my will-power when it comes to coffee. I am usually a big iced coffee drinker. Yes, you know the ones that are laden with sugar and cream. I have not even missed those drinks. In fact, I love my Starbucks with Unsweetened Almond Milk and Stevia now! Who is this girl? 😀

Carb Cycling, what is that and how does it affect the FASTer Way to Fat Loss? On Mondays and Tuesdays, we partake in Low Carb days and pair it with high intensity interval training workouts. These workouts can be done right at home or they gym. After the two low carb days we will refuel our body with carbs for the rest of the week. These days are my fave and I look forward to fueling my body with good carbs! This is such a great part of the program.  Monday and Tuesday we are focusing on lower carb foods and filling our bodies with the good fats that we need, then, when Wednesday comes around we can eat yummy fruits, oatmeal, and other good for you-carbs to refuel! 

Working out of the FASTer Way to Fat Loss has actually been a big part for me. I go to the YMCA at least 6 days a week and do spinning, leg machines and the treadmill. It does depend on the day of the week and what exercises you will need to focus on. As I mentioned before, you can do the exercises at home too if you don’t have access to a gym. You will be given a link when you sign up to view all the workouts. I highly suggest that you try to do something each day even if it is just walking. I have only missed going to the gym a few days and when I don’t get there I actually miss it!

What do I eat on the FASTer Way to Fat Loss? You will eat a TON of food! I cannot believe all the food that I get to eat each day and see such amazing results! I am going to share in pictures some of my meals and snacks from the past few weeks. My favorite way to break a fast on regular macro days is with a delicious Açaí Bowl or Overnight Oats. Low Carb Days I love bacon, eggs and guacamole! For snacks I love chicken salad, nuts, tuna, fruit and the list goes on and on! I will tell you that it is best to input your food the night before so that you are not scrambling the day of. Preparation is key to this program!

I still enjoyed a delicious 4th of July Meal! No deprivation here!

My thoughts so far? I love this program and actually plan to continue on for another 6 weeks when this round is over. It is sustainable, there is no depravation and it makes you feel so good about yourself. I know that I am giving my body the whole nutrition that it needs and that is so important! I went on vacation last week to Orlando and Boston with my husband and was still able to maintain my good eating habits and tracking. Even with the Fourth of July and vacation, eating out, and indulging on a few treats I maintained. If I can do this, you can do this! I promise! Don’t feel like you can’t enjoy a birthday or special occasion on this program. You can totally make it work! I am so motivated to continue on. I want this for me and for my health. You can’t afford NOT to take care of yourself! Self care is so important!
With all of the other “diet” plans that I have tried before, I was left hungry and wanting to eat more food. This program is so different. While you will eat a lot of food, (I eat over 1700 calories on most days) you will also gain freedom from food. You will crave those things that your body needs and have confidence to be a better YOU!

                                                                   BEFORE                                               DURING

I want to share with you a picture so you can see what I have experienced so far with the program. In less than a month, my legs have transformed a ton! I carry most of my weight in my hips/thighs so it is hard to lose. But it is coming along! Just look at that picture. In less than one month! I am blown away! Remember, it is all about progress over perfection! I can’t wait to continue on and see even more amazing results. What about the scale? I don’t get on the scale very often. In fact, it is encouraged from the FWTFL not to get on the scale. When I did get on a few weeks back I had lost over 5 pounds. To me, inches are more than pounds. Don’t go by what the scale says go by how you feel and how your clothes are fitting!

Tips to Create a Relaxing Outdoor Oasis + SunBrite Veranda Series Televisions!

This is a sponsored post. The reviewer has been compensated in the form of a Best Buy Gift Card and/or received the product/service at a reduced price or for free.

Now that school is out for the summer, we are getting our plan of action together of what fun things that we plan to do with the boys to keep them busy during these next few months. Are you still making summer plans and deciding what to do with the kids this summer?

We love to be outdoors! In fact, one of the selling factors for me last year when we moved into our new home was definitely the outdoor living space. I love the screened-in porch (to keep away all those Florida bugs) and the white picket fence makes my view such an enjoyable one when I am sitting out there sipping my morning coffee.

For me, it is important that my outdoor living space is not only just as cozy as the inside of my home, but that it also provides a warm, inviting atmosphere for my entire family and our guests. When the outdoor space is tranquil and relaxing, you will find yourself out there over and over again.

Here are a few tips to help you create a relaxing outdoor entertaining oasis: 

Outdoor Furniture– Find an outdoor patio set/furniture that will be functional yet comfortable. Since you be sitting here a majority of the time, this is a key factor. Make sure the patio set compliments your space. Do the chairs/couches have pillows? Is the table big enough to comfortably seat your family and guests? Is the table big enough to enjoy family game night? There are so many different options available, and right now is the perfect time to buy as there are sales galore!

Entertainment– No outdoor space is complete without an outdoor television! Make watching television outside fun with the Veranda Series of SunBriteTVs! The Veranda Series of SunBriteTVs are designed specifically for outdoor use. In fact, they are weatherproof, and designed for full-shade outdoor spaces, like covered patios and screened-in porches. This sounds like the perfect television for outdoor family movie nights or for entertaining guests. I may even slip out there to watch my favorite cooking shows and movies! 

Ready to learn more? Find the the SunBriteTV Veranda Series with 4K UHD and HDR available at Best Buy in 43”, 55”, 65” and 75” sizes.

Fans For the warmer summer months, make sure that you have plenty of circulating air. Those of us who live in Florida know that it can be extremely hot even in an area that is covered. When the weather cools down, you could add a fire pit or small heater for warmth. We love our fire pit for toasting marshmallows too!

Cold Beverages– Staying hydrated especially during the hot, summer months is so important! Consider placing a small refrigerator on the porch stocked with your families favorite cold beverages. You can even keep a basket with snacks on hand for when the munchies hit!

Lighting– Thankfully during the summer months it stays lighter outside much longer, but good lighting is key to any outdoor oasis. I particularly love the string lights that are so popular these days. They are not only decorative, but give a nice glow to the outside space. There are so many fun designs available that it can be hard to choose the perfect set! If you have an outdoor ceiling fan, they make lots of nice lighting options for those as well.

Are you Ready to Learn More About the Veranda Series SunBrite TV’s?

These outdoor televisions are designed to survive just about any climate in North America, resisting the harsh effects of rain, snow, dust, insects, and extreme temperatures. Wow! 

Veranda comes standard with a direct-lit 4K UHD screen with HDR, which means that it is up to 50% brighter than indoor TVs for improved viewing in brighter outdoor environments! With a TV like this, it sounds to me like the best seat in the house is going to be the one on my back porch! Look for the SunBrite Veranda Series Outdoor Televisions at your local Best Buy or learn more HERE

I hope that these tips to help you create a relaxing outdoor entertaining oasis have been helpful! Have a wonderful summer!

Review of Y’OUR Personalized Skincare

Disclosure: I was provided with Y’OUR Personalized Skincare to facilitate my review. All thoughts and opinions are own. Please see my disclosure policy)

As someone in their early 4o’s, I definitely am paying much more to attention to my skin and the skincare that I use. It seems that once you hit 40, your skin starts playing tricks on you. I have definitely noticed more redness around my nose, and yes, those pesky lines around my mouth and lips are starting to appear!

Thankfully, I never really had acne or any other skin problems when I was younger, but now that I am getting older and noticing the signs of the aging process creeping in, I need to address those problems now before it becomes an issue. So, when I was asked to review Y’OUR Personalized Skincare, I couldn’t wait to give the products a try! 

Getting started with Y’OUR Personalized Skincare is super easy! Build your perfect skin care regimen by taking a simple quiz HERE. This quiz helps Y’OUR to see what your skin type is. They will then formulate the best custom regimen for your specific needs. Sounds too easy, right? It is that simple!

Y’OUR creates a personalized regimen for you based on what you’re looking to improve in your skin. The products that you will receive are full size products (3 month supply). They also have a satisfaction guarantee policy in which they offer to reformulate the products for you for free up to 2 times during the first 3 months to make sure that you are completely satisfied. 

I also appreciate that Y’OUR products evolve with me. Before users are sent their next set of products, they will be sent an evaluation form to make any adjustments if necessary. Our skin can change depending on the season and as we age so I greatly appreciate this! 

What about the ingredients in Y’OUR Personalized Skincare? You will be happy to know that their cleanser is safer and more effective than physical exfoliating cleansers since it has the ability to penetrate the skin for deeper exfoliation while does not involve actually rubbing the skin. In addition, the products are made with clean ingredients, no fillers, and are Paraben and toxin free. They are also made right here in the USA and there is no animal testing done on them and they are cruelty free. 

When my Y’OUR Personalized Skincare Kit arrived, I was very pleased with the beautiful packaging! The purple box made it extra special! When I opened the box, I found it extremely helpful that they had enclosed a card with my personal skincare routine. This is so helpful and shows me step-by-step how to apply the products.

My personalized skincare routine is comprised of 4 products: Cleanser, Day Cream, Serum and the Night Cream.

Cleanser– I have found that you don’t need much of this cleanser to get the job done. A small dime sized amount is perfect and it makes your skin feel soft, fresh and super clean. This cleanser is perfect for combination skin as it purifies your skin and gives you a smooth complexion.

Day Cream– I love the day cream! It is not heavy at all and I appreciate that I can place my foundation right on top of it and it doesn’t weigh my skin down. This also has an SPF 30 which is so important in a day cream. This formula combines the UV deflecting properties of Titanium minerals with protective ingredients to prevent sun damage, neutralize harmful free radicals, and keep away pollution damages.

Serum– Out of the 4 products in my personalized skincare kit, the serum is my favorite! You simply apply 2-3 drops on your face and let the magic happen. The serum gives your face a nice firm feeling without being greasy or overpowering. I like to take the serum as well as the Day and Night Creams all the way to my neck. Your neck can start to show aging very early on so it is important that we cover that area as well! In addition, it infuses your skin with a boost of anti-inflammatory benefits to instantly calm redness, rosacea and the most sensitive skin.

Night Cream– The Night Cream is fabulous! While it is a bit thicker than the day cream, it glides right on and you wake up feeling refreshed and your face is super soft! The night cream helps to reduce wrinkles and even your skin tone.

What are my thoughts so far on Y’OUR Personalized Skincare? I have only been using these products for under 2 weeks, but I have noticed that my skin is much more soft and manageable. I can really tell that these products are targeted just for my skin, which is very impressive to me. I love the unique approach that Y’OUR Personalized Skincare takes and would highly recommend that you try them for yourselves! Right now when you take a personalized quiz HERE you will receive $15 off the Y’OUR Personalized Skincare kit. You have nothing to lose but only beautiful skin to gain!

Review of the Tupperware Microwave Breakfast Maker Set

Disclosure: I was provided with the Tupperware Microwave Breakfast Maker Set to facilitate my review. All thoughts and opinions are own. Please see my disclosure policy)

I simply added my veggies and 2 eggs to a bowl mixed them up and added them to the breakfast maker. I placed it in the microwave for around 2 1/2 minutes and voila! The perfect omelet!

Salads Have Arrived at Sun Basket!

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

I am a huge fan of Sun Basket! They strive to make healthy cooking easy and delicious, and they offer organic and sustainably sourced produce and responsibly-sourced meats and seafoods. I love having the option of a meal delivery service right to my door that fits my family’s busy schedule. And now, things have gotten even more exciting! Salads have arrived at Sun Basket! I was so excited to have the opportunity to try several of these delicious new salads and couldn’t wait to share my review with you all! Choose from: Southwestern Salad, Vegan Caesar, Rainbow Asian Salad, and Protein Crunch Super Greens. 

These salads are available to add to your weekly basket. Not only are these salads delicious, but they are literally ready in minutes!  You simply mix, dress, and enjoy! I also love that you can serve them as is or add a protein if you prefer. Voila, you have a healthy and delicious meal for lunch or dinner. The possibilities are endless! 

I tried the Protein Crunch Salad and the Kale Caesar Salad. Both were equally delicious and packed full of flavor! The thing that I love about these salads is that they come with their own information card that shows you step by step instructions on how to prepare them. So easy! In fact, they can be prepared and on the table within 5 minutes!

Protein Crunch Salad:

This salad is packed full of flavor! Puffed quinoa, buttery walnuts, and kale are combined with dried blueberries and riced cauliflower for color and crunch. The dressing is an organic sherry vinaigrette which gives the salad a sweet and nutty taste. It was delicious!

Kale Caesar Salad:

This delicious salad is a healthy twist of the classic caesar salad. Instead of those croutons the classic caesar salad is known for, this healthy spin combines dry-roasted chickpeas and sunflower seeds to give you that satisfying crunch!I added some grilled chicken to my salad for extra protein! With Sun Basket’s organic vegan caesar dressing you get all the flavor of the original caesar dressing, but this one is plant-based and made with almond milk and cashew butter. It is absolutely amazing! 

In addition to these delicious salads, Sun Basket also sent me a couple of meals to prepare last week. We had the Chicken Parmesan and the Pan-seared steaks with chimichurri and citrus-walnut salad. Of all the meal delivery services that my family has tried, Sun Basket has the freshest ingredients. In addition every detail is amazing when they ship their meals. They send you everything that you need to prepare the dish. They even send the egg! The only thing that you need from your pantry is the olive oil and salt and pepper. It makes cooking so easy!

Pan-seared steaks with chimichurri and citrus-walnut salad:

The sweet-tart of the citrus and delicately bitter chicory lettuce along with the seared steak makes for an easy one-pan paleo meal that will taste like you stepped into your favorite restaurant! 

Chicken Parmesan with house salad:

One of my personal all time favorites! This Italian-American classic combines hearty, gooey, and satisfying with breaded chicken, fresh-cooked tomato sauce, and a green salad. Sun Basket has delivered with this one! Every bite was cleaned off my family’s plates! 

GO HERE to try Sun Basket for yourself to see just how delicious the meals are. Have you tried Sun Basket before? Did you like it?
