Lilly Anne’s Garden- Pregnancy/Infant Loss Awareness Box LE Review

Hi all!

Today on the blog, I have the LE Pregnancy/Infant Loss Awareness box from Lilly Anne’s Garden. This box is dedicated to, and to raise awareness for, anyone that has lost a child. Each month, Misty creates a scent of the month–50% of all sales of that scent go to Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep. This is an organization that supports families who have suffered the tragic loss of a child, and remembers and honors them through photographs and remembrances. They also offer assistance for medical services, family services and bereavement counseling.  For this box, $3 from each purchase will be donated. 1 in 4 women have suffered the loss of a child, including myself. This box and what it represents is dear to my heart and you are not alone. If you have suffered the loss of a child, reach out. There is help and support there for you.

 

This box is $13 + shipping and will be available tomorrow, restocked. You can click the link here to purchase. Make sure to follow Lilly Anne’s Garden on Instagram for updates. You can follow by clicking here.

This box contains a Sugar scrub in the scent Angel Kisses, a 10mL rollerball cuticle oil in the scent Butterfly Hugs, and a small sheet of awareness ribbon water slide decals from RibbitsStickIts (Kristy create some AMAZING vinyls and water slide decals! Be sure to check out her shop and her Instagram! You can get to her Instagram by clicking here and her shop is ribbitsstickits.bigcartel.com.)

First up, the cuticle oil.

img_5173

This is a 10 mL rollerball Cuticle oil in the scent Butterfly Hugs. It is a creative fresh blend of apple blossom, lily of the valley and rose petals.The overall scent is soft, refreshing, clean and floral. It reminds me of a lush garden in the summer, and like all of Misty’s cuticle oil, it is absolutely amazing.

On to the sugar scrub!–

The sugar scrub is in the scent, Angel Kisses. This fragrance begins with top notes of green leafy ferns and sweet florals; followed by jasmine and white floral lily; sitting on a floral musk base note. It is also colored pink and blue. The overall scent is is feminine and inviting; Welcoming you into the open arms of a garden of springtime flowers. This sugar scrub, like all of Misty’s sugar scuba is super hydrating and leaves the skin feeling soft and supple.

And finally, the water slide decals from RibbitsStickIts!–

Used ‘Skinny Dip’ and ‘Zero Tolerance’ by Flirtin’ Co. Holographic Stamped stars and a butterfly charm that is also available in Lilly Anne’s Garden’s shop. Pregnancy/Infant Loss Awareness ribbon decal by RibbitsStickIts.

These custom decals are exclusive to this box. Show your support and awareness by wearing a ribbon on October 15th!

RibbitsStickIts waterslide decals are so easy to use! Simply cut out your decal and place in water for 15-30 seconds. Remove the decal from the backing and place it on the desired place on your nail. You can remove any excess with acetone and then add your favorite top coat! If you are impatient like me :D, you can add a top coat or clear polish BEFORE attaching/laying your decal so that it adheres to the nail more securely. Because the decals are semi-transparent, they work best over lighter color polishes.

That is my review for the LE Pregnancy/Infant Loss Awareness box from Lilly Anne’s Garden. Don’t forget to follow on Instagram and my blog for more reviews! Thanks for looking! And until next time…Happy Polishing!

Lilly Anne’s Garden – New products!

Hi all!

Today I have more new products to share with you from my favorite nail care company, Lilly Anne’s Garden. Misty has been back in the lab again creating more amazing products to help keeps your skin, nails and hands healthy and hydrated.

First up is her new Goat’s Milk Soap–

This soap is seriously amazing. It cleanses without leaving the skin feeling dried out, but doesn’t leave a film on the skin, like most soaps can. When I tested this soap, I ran it under water and washed my hands as usual. It lathered up very quickly and rinsed away clean. The apricot seed helped with exfoliating my skin and cuticles, leaving my skin soft and supple. Pink sugar is a pleasant, soft, feminine scent that lingers on the skin, but does not overpower. So far, Misty’s shop offers the pink sugar scent infused with exfoliating apricot seed and shapes for halloween–which will be pictured and discussed in just a moment.

The halloween soaps are in fun shapes for the halloween holiday! The purple skull is in the scent Witches Brew (if you want to know more about the scent witches brew it can be seen in the halloween box review). And the pumpkin shape is in the scent pumpkin roll. Both smell absolutely amazing and leave you skin feeling clean, without drying it out! These are both available in the Halloween box from Lilly Anne’s Garden. If you’d like to purchase, click here. For $17 + shipping, you can’t miss out on such an amazing deal! Supplies on the Halloween box are extremely limited. Once it sells out, its gone for good.

Next up is Misty’s new cuticle balms!

This is another fantastic new addition to the Lilly Anne’s Garden line of cuticle products. I have to say, I have been dying for Misty to come out with these since she began her company, and they definitely did NOT disappoint. At first touch, the texture is smooth and buttery–not at all greasy. This balm seems to melt by applying the warmth of your skin. But never fear, those of you living in hotter climates-like myself-these did not lose shape or arrive melted on my doorstep in any way! There is no heavy rubbing or digging to soften it up. A little of this definitely goes a long way, but the formula is light enough to be used throughout your day. The balm does not leave a heavy residue on the skin and absorbs quickly leaving a matte finish–Perfect for swatchers and “nailfie”-takers alike. It is absolute perfection. The will be available starting September 23rd, so mark your calendars. As of now, there will be two sizes available. A sample size, which is pictured, and a 10 mL full sizes. They will also be available in a variety of Misty’s delectable scent options, including unscented, for those of you with sensitive noses.

And speaking of scents, Misty has introduced 3 new scents to the cornucopia of deliciousness. And has also come out with a new nail charm for fall! img_5022

YAS! These are the new scents she has added to her lineup.

First is Banana Nut Bread-

This smells exactly like fresh baked banana nut bread. It has notes of fresh ripe bananas, vanilla and butter with light nutty undertones. If you love bananas, banana muffins, banana bread or any other baked banana goods, this scent is definitely for you!

Next we have Lychee and Mango. My friend, Bryanna, brought to Misty’s attention the desire to have some kind of lychee scent in her store. Since both my friend and I spent a significant part of our lives in Hawaii, we both have a love for lychee. Hence, lychee and mango was born. Growing up in Hawaii, lychee is among some of my favorite fruits and this scent just brings me back home. I remember, as a kid, picking ripe mangos from our neighbors tree; sneaking by the fence in elementary school during recess to pick the lychee that was hanging over the barrier. This scent brings me back to a time of innocence long gone. Tart fresh mangoes with the subtle sweetness from the lychee–just heaven.

Next we have Fig Lychee. Another amazing combination that is sweet and delicious. Both fruits are slightly sweet which makes this scent light and fresh. This is definitely one of my new favorites and is perfect year round.

And finally, a new charm addition to Lilly Anne’s Garden-
