Scentbird | Jimmy Choo Stars

I am still just as excited about Scentbird as the first time I raved about it. Scentbird, for those of you who missed my last post, is a monthly perfume subscription service. It costs just $15 a month, and you receive a vial of perfume that's 0.34 oz (practically the size of a typical rollerball!) and a chic holder that you can switch the bottles in and out of. For a limited time, this fancy pink vial is available when you subscribe! 

The perfume you receive each month is totally up to you. You can pick from over 350 designer fragrances at, so you never have to receive something that isn't your style. They're always adding new scents and if they don't have something you really want to try, they encourage subscribers to send them a note so they can add your scent to their library of fragrances.

This month, I chose to receive Jimmy Choo Stars, a limited edition fragrance that was launched in 2014. I'm not head over heels in love the original Jimmy Choo scent, but I have been a big fan of the spinoffs of the perfume. Stars is no exception - it smells so so good. If you've smelled Jimmy Choo before, it has that same basic scent that comes through strong, but there are also notes of citrus, patchouli, orchid, sandalwood and toffee. I can really pick up on the afternotes of toffee, which is quite a unique and interesting scent. If you're a fan of scents like Chloe or Miss Dior, you might like this perfume as well.

Stars is sophisticated, feminine and sexy and if I didn't have a million perfumes to use, I'd consider placing an order for it right this second. 

I'd highly recommend Scentbird if you like to switch up your perfume or get bored easily with scents. It's an awesome way to try a new perfume before shelling out the big bucks on a large bottle. I'm a self professed perfume junkie, so you can bet I'm loving experimenting thanks to Scentbird! To start your subscription, just click here.  Use the code SPRINGBIRD to get 15% off your first month! 

What perfume would you try? Let me know!

Keomi Skincare - All Natural Organic Soap

In the past year, I've gotten more in to bar soaps. I'm typically a body wash girl through and through but something has switched in me and bar soaps are my new fave. The last week or so I've been trying out a line of natural and organic soaps by Keomi Skincare. They sent me four sample bars to try in the scents Golden Crown, Sea Breeze, Luscious Lavender, and Green Tea Goddess.

Keomi Skincare's soaps are crafted in small batches using the cold-process method to preserve the oils they're made with. The soaps base is created with 10 organic vegetable, fruit and seed oils, and shea and cocoa butters and scented with pure aromatherapy-grade essential oils. 

Each soap is made in the USA, organic, and vegan. They're free of: GMOs, colorants, preservatives, sulphate, petroleum byproducts, and nuts. Healthy ingredients - I love!!

These soaps are creamy, they lather up really nicely and they have a lovely herbal scent.  In the shower they've got a really strong soothing scent, but the smell doesn't linger afterwards. If you like the smell of essential oils, you will love these. I really enjoyed using these soaps and will definitely consider purchasing them again in the future.  

You can purchase a 3-pack of these soaps (which are much larger in size than the images above) for $22.97 on Amazon.

Beejuvenate | Review + GIVEAWAY!

Ya'll know I love me some all natural beauty goodies. So obviously, it was a total no brainer to try the Beejuvenate All Natural Beeswax Skin Balm when the opportunity presented itself. This balm is formulated with beeswax as it's main ingredient, and it's alcohol-free.

Beejuvenate is created with 12 natural ingredients:  Safflower Oil, Apricot Kernel Oil, Beeswax, Cocoa Butter, Coconut Oil, Kukui Seed Oil, Grape Seed Oil, Macadamia Nut Oil, Organic Refined Hemp Seed Oil, Avocado Oil, Shea Butter, and Emu Oil.

You can use this product in a number of ways. Essentially, what it does is the beeswax formula creates a protective barrier over the skin when you need it. It heals dry skin, soothes cracked heels, heals eczema, heals sun burns and chafed skin, works as a post-tattoo moisturizer and much more. 

I used this on my dry knuckles, and I even used it on my dogs dry paws during the winter. In fact, I'll probably keep this as a product solely for Winnie in the winter because it's natural and it worked nicely on her paws. The texture is quite hard, but it warms up when you rub it on your finger and it easily melts in to the skin. 

Beejuvenate comes in a variety of scents. I picked vanilla creme, a buttery vanilla scent that smells a little bit fake, but it's not bad. 

Beejuvenate can be purchased at for $8.50 - $30, depending on the size.

One lucky winner will receive a tub of beejuvenate in the scent of their choice! Enter below, and leave a comment letting me know which scent you'd like if you win! This giveaway is open to US residents only. Sorry!

Ipsy Glam Bag | March 2015

March's Ipsy Glam bag is a good one! For $10/month, this is a heck of a value! To get your own glam bag, click here to sign up.  Here's what came in this month's bag...

  • Pur~lisse pūr~delicate gentle soymilk cleanser & makeup remover - This brand has been in my Ipsy bags many times, but never a cleanser. This cleanser is sulfate free and formulated with soy milk, whole oat and white tea. It's meant to wipe away makeup as well as cleanse the skin. 
  • Dr. Brandt pores no more anti-aging mattifying lotion - This product helps to delay signs of aging. Retinol improves the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, while apple stem cells work to maintain the longevity and activity of the skin's own stem cells. 
  • NYX Lip Butter in Hunk - These lipsticks are awesome. They're moisturizing and mega-pigmented. Hunk is a gorgeous vampy purple pink. 
  • Boo-Boo Cover Up in Medium - This concealer contains natural ingredients known to promote healing, so you can cover your blemishes while getting rid of them at the same time. This is probably a bit too dark for me, which is a bummer ipsy didn't use my profile quiz that specifically says I have fair skin. (Why ask if you don't bother using it?!)
  • VINTAGE by Jessica Liebeskind Illuminating Face Highlighter in Crystal Pink - This product is meant to be swept across the apples of your cheeks and cheekbones to give skin a dewy glow. This has a really buttery formula and leans slightly towards discoball shiny, but it is a gorgeous highlight. It could easily be used as an eyeshadow if you prefer. '

3 years.

Wow. Today marks 3 years since the creation of Glazed Over. I don't want to get too mushy and gushy or drawn out about it, but I just want to take a second and thank you sincerely for reading. I consider makeup and beauty an art form and I truly enjoy sharing my passion with you each week on this blog. Glazed Over has come a long way in 3 years - there's still so much more I'd like to do and so much more I want to share with you and I can only hope that in the next year, things will be even BETTER! 

So thank you! And I hope you'll continue to join me here each Monday, Wednesday and Friday! I'm going to go find a cupcake to celebrate now.... ;)

Rituals HAUL!

If you haven't heard of Rituals, you aren't the only one. Rituals is a brand that seems to have stayed under the radar, but lately I've seen them popping up everywhere. After a browse on the Rituals US website and reading through the selection of different scents they offer, I made an impulse order and I am so ridiculously happy with everything I purchased.

First off, isn't the packaging gorgeous?! I love the attention to detail and how luxurious it all looks! I'm so guilty of judging a book by it's cover, but hey - it paid off. 

You're probably thinking - WTF, 3 body butters? Girl, you crazy! But if you saw my last empties post you know that I GO THROUGH IT! I swear! And besides, Rituals had a deal that if you spent over $30 (I think?), you got a free body butter. All of these retail for $25 each, but I got them on sale for $20 a piece (and one free). 

The first body butter I got is Honey Touch: Indian Rose & Himalaya Honey. It has a faint rose scent and is definitely sugary sweet. It's a fresh scent and smells like something you'd buy at a spa. Magic Touch: Cherry Blossom & Rice Milk is very lightly scented, and won't interfere with your perfume. It has that typical "rice milk" scent, if you know what I mean. Touch of Light: Patchouli & Cardamom was initially what sparked my interest in the brand. Patchouli and cardamom are two scents I love, and this smells amazing. It's not too heavy on either of the scents, so if you love fragrances like this pick it up NOW because this is a limited edition product! 

Shower oils are one of my favorite ways to hydrate my skin when I'm running late or am too lazy to use a lotion post-shower. And since Shanti Shower: Indian Rose & Sweet Almond Oil combines two more of my favorite things (almond oil & rose) this was a no-brainer to add in to my cart. This is probably my least favorite scent of the 4 products I purchased, but it's not bad in any way! It's very very sweet and I'm interested to see how long that scent lingers after use. 

Have you ever tried anything from Rituals? If you have, let me know what you loved!

Hair Symphony Brushes

Despite loving makeup and beauty products, hair styling is one thing I don't enjoy nearly as much. And in turn, I don't often do much with my hair. Some days I may curl it, or throw some bobby pins in it to create a simple style, but most days I don't even brush it. On the days that I wash it though, I do like to use a brush that gets the job done, tangles out, and sweeps through every strand. 

Hair Symphony sent me two of their brushes to try: the salon-quality styling brush (left) and the detangling brush (right). I have to say, I wasn't a fan of the styling brush, as it feels really cheap and the bristles were all wonky and caved in. However, I did really love the detangling brush. Dare I say, I think I love it even more than my tangle teezer. The extra long base of the detangling brush makes it easier to hold than the tangle teezer, and the bristles do a great job of gripping each strand of hair. Don't get me wrong, the tangle teezer is a great product, but this detangling brush is pretty darn awesome!

This brush duo can be purchased on Amazon for $16.45.

MEMEBOX SoothingSista X Palette

Don't even get me started on pinky-brown palettes. They are my ALL TIME favorite, and I have a beautiful new one in my collection that you must know about. If you love rosy brown eyeshadow, or have green eyes like I do (seriously, pinks are good for us green-eyed gals) you're going to love this. 

This is the SoothingSista X Palette, a collaboration between Stephanie Villa (YouTube beauty star) and MEMEBOX, the Korean beauty store powerhouse. These shades are good for day or night and even with just 4 colors, the varieties of looks you can create are endless! And BONUS: these shadows are paraben and cruelty-free.

The top to shades, L to R, are Sutro and Valencia. The bottom two are Candy Rain and Bae Area. Sutro is the perfect matte rosy hue. It's not the most pigmented but it does a good job of defining the crease. Valencia is maybe my favorite color of the bunch, and it's a gorgeous dusty matte mauve. Candy Rain is a shimmering deep pink and Bae Area is a pink gold shimmer. All the shadows are named after SoothingSista's favorite places in San Francisco. 

L to R: Sutro, Valencia, Candy Rain, Bae Area

 These colors remind me a lot of the Naked 3 palette. They aren't quite the same quality, but the SoothingSista palette is great for the price. The colors are super blendable and when I use a primer, they last all day long - even the glitter! For $17 this palette is worth every penny. You can purchase it here.

Sorry for the horrendous cell phone picture, but here's the look I created using this palette. I used Sutro in my crease, Valencia in the outer crease and Bae Area on the rest of my eye to create this look. I love it - totally appropriate for day or night!

Influenster XO Vox Box

If you aren't signed up for Influenster yet, let this post be a message loud and clear: SIGN UP! It is awesome! Everything I'm showing you I got completely for free because I share these products with you. Every couple months I get something new from Influenster and the boxes are always great. (See here, and here for some examples) Basically, you get to sample some cool products in exchange for a review. It's awesome! To sign up, just click here

Recently, I was sent the XO VoxBox. Here's what came in it:

I was excited to see a big bag of Tide Pods with Febreze! I like the convenience of pods for laundry, and even though these aren't the most natural, I'll use them since I got them for free!

Also included is the John Frieda Luxurious Volume 7 Day Volume In-Shower Treatment. This is a lightweight, semi-permanent treatment that lasts for several washes. It's meant to penetrate each fiber of hair and amplify each strand. This is a unique item that that's totally new to me and I'm looking forward to trying it!

Next to the treatment is a set of three hair items. These are the shampoo, conditioner and sea salt spray from the John Frieda Bleach Blonde collection. I don't really know why these are labeled "beach blonde" as they don't say anything about making your hair blonder, or preserving your color. Which I guess is good because we all know I'm nowhere near being beachy or blonde. As for sea salt sprays, I have yet to meet one that does anything special for me - but I do like using them for texture when I use hot rollers in my hair.

For those of you with dry hands, you'll love Skinfix Hand Repair Cream. This lotion is unscented and highly moisturizing. It's formulated without steroids (that's a thing in lotion??!), soy or fragrance. This is advertised to be great for people with eczema, dermatitis or extreme dryness. I prefer lotion with a teensy bit of a smell, but this is a nice option.  

And who doesn't love free toothpaste and a toothbrush? I'm all about free necessities. Included in this box are Colgate Optic White Express White toothpaste and the Colgate Optic White Toothbrush with built-in Whitening Pen. I've used this toothpaste before and it's just fine, and I've never tried this fancy toothbrush before. 

All in all, I think this was an awesome VoxBox - probably one of the best I've received. All items will definitely get used and are things I wouldn't have picked up myself but I'm pumped to try. 

Let me know if you've tried any of these products. And seriously... if you read all the way through this and STILL haven't signed up - WHAT ARE YOU WAITING FOR?! Awesome free stuff awaits you.

Empties #12

While I haven't been so great about not buying things (I really need to put myself on a a strict "no buy") I HAVE been excellent about finishing what I have. Let's dig in...

  • Essie Smoothies hand & body lotion in Pomegranate & Mango (would repurchase) - This was a nice light lotion that I used as a hand lotion. It didn't leave my hands feeling greasy, but it also wasn't mega-hydrating. This is definitely a good choice for the warmer months when my skin doesn't tend to be so dry.
  • C.O. Bigelow Lotio Mentholus (would repurchase) - I loved this hand lotion. It's also very light, and has a soft menthol scent. I love the bottle, too!
  • Suave Smoothing lotion with cocoa butter & shea (would repurchase) - Another great lotion option! It is lightly scented so it won't interfere with any perfume you're wearing. It moisturizes without being greasy. I was surprised by how much I enjoyed this.

  • Alba Botanical Hawaiian Sunscreen in revitalizing green tea (would repurchase) - This sunscreen is very thick and greasy. It's a bit tough to smooth around on the skin. I wouldn't use this as a daily SPF, but it's good if your plan is to bum around on the beach all day. Plus, it's free of nasty chemicals.
  • Soap & Glory Hand Food in Fruitigo (would repurchase) - I loooooved this hand lotion! The scent is addicting but not overwhelming. It moisturizes my hands so well. I could easily abandon all other lotions and use this every day from here on out!
  • Lush Snow Fairy shower gel (would not repurchase) - I think I'm one of the only people who does not enjoy the cult Snow Fairy scent. It's not the kind of sweet that I enjoy, it a sickening smell. I bought it online without ever smelling it, and I won't be doing that again!
  • The Body Shop Almond body butter (would repurchase) - Holy cow, I used a lot of lotion these last couple months. Anyway, I love love loved this body butter. It smells sweet and hydrates intensely. It reminded me of my beloved Creme Anglaise (right next to it), and I'll definitely buy this again.
  • Lush Creme Anglaise hand and body lotion (would repurchase) - This is hands down my favorite lotion of all time. And unfortunately, Lush discontinued this last year. It is a tragedy. I hope it makes a comeback for a limited release, because I will stock up even though this costs an arm and a leg.
  • Aveeno Positively Radiant Skin Brightening Daily Scrub (would repurchase) - This was a very gentle exfoliator, not harsh at all. If you have sensitive skin, this would be a good option for you. Jake also enjoyed using this. It is fragranced, but not overly so. 
  • amie Morning Clear Purifying Facial Wash (would not repurchase) - This was an odd face wash. It felt more like I was slathering lotion all over my face than soap. It just didn't do anything for me. 
  • Maybelline Clean Express Makeup Remover (would repurchase) - This gets my eye makeup off well. There's not much more to say about it. 
  • L'Oreal Voluminous Extra-Volume Collagen waterproof mascara (would not repurchase) - I took a chance on this, and I didn't like it at all. It was clumpy and gritty and was hard to work with. 
  • fresh Soy Face Cleanser (would repurchase) - I really enjoyed using this face cleanser, and this deluxe sample lasted me ages. I loved how gentle this was. It never broke me out and did a great job of cleansing my skin. 
  • Calvin Klein Ck One Color Mascara (Would repurchase) - This was last year's birthday gift from Ulta, and it was awesome. It didn't make my lashes clumpy, but it provided volume and length. If it wasn't a bit spendy, I'd totally buy it again. 
  • Andalou Naturals 1000 Roses Absolute Serum (would repurchase) - This serum was heavenly! It smelled softly of roses which is already a huge win in my book. It's meant to soothe and nourish sensitive skin, and I did find it calming.
  • B&BW Antibac in Apple Wreath (would repurchase) - I use these before applying my makeup so I don't spread germs on my skin. I like the B&BW ones because they have so many different scents.
  • Benefit Total Moisture Facial Cream (would not repurchase) - This moisturizer felt like it just sat on top of my skin. It didn't do a good job of hydrating dry patches. It's a pricey moisturizer and it's definitely not worth it to me.
  • Indie Lee Brightening Cleanser (would not repurchase) - I didn't care for the scent of this cleanser and I don't feel like it did much for me. 
  • Herbal Essences Body Wash in Body Burst (would repurchase) - This smelled really good, just like all Herbal Essences products do. I liked it!
  • Leanni Eco 3-in-1 Revolution Light (would repurchase) - I really liked this toner, moisturizer and serum in one! It hydrated and balanced my skin. Once I work my way through my other moisturizers I have in stock, I'd definitely buy this. 
  • Coach Poppy Perfume (would not repurchase) - This smelled nice, but it's nothing unique. I don't need it in my stash.
  • Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Top Coat (would repurchase) - I have used this top coat for ages. It dries fast and will leave your nails shiny, but it has a tendency to bubble and it chips quickly. I've gone back to using Seche Vite for now.
  • Nivea Lip Butter in Vanilla & Macadamia Kiss (would repurchase) - This smelled heavenly. I smeared this on my lips at night before bed, and it did a pretty good job of hydrating. It doesn't penetrate very deeply, but it's not bad for a cheap lip butter. 
  • Wet n Wild Mega Eyes Cream Eyeliner (would repurchase) - I really liked this product, and it made my top 14 of 2014, but it dried up on me. I will get it again because it's so cheap and it's mega-black. 
  • Clear Clinic Laboratories Vanished Clear Spot Treatment (would repurchase) - I liked this little sample for zapping spots. It was a good morning treatment for use underneath makeup. It wasn't a miracle product, but I do think it helped speed the healing process along. 
  • C.O. Bigelow Mentha Lip Shine in Ultra (would repurchase) - I absolutely love this lip product. It's tingly and cooling on the lips and I can feel it moisturizing and healing when I use it. It has a minty smell and it supposed to help freshen breath, too. I'll definitely get this again. 
  • B&BW Wallflowers in Winter (would not repurchase) - As much as I hate using these because they're chock full of bad chemicals, I always seem to have one going in my house because they smell so dang good. Winter isn't my favorite scent and it's not very strong, it's kind of a fruity winter scent, so I won't buy it again. 
  • Jason Powersmile toothpaste in Vanilla Peppermint (would repurchase) - I love Jason toothpastes because they're more natural and SLS and flouride-free. I really loved the vanilla peppermint flavor.
  • Aveeno Nourish & Strengthen Shampoo & Conditioner (would repurchase) - I got one use out of these. It was nice, nothing overly special, but I'd try out the full size in the future. 
  • Liquid Volumizing Shampoo & Conditioner (would repurchase) - I liked these more than I expected to. My hair felt so soft and silky after using these. I have no clue where to purchase them, but if I saw them around, I'd pick them up.
  • Elite Therapeutics Elite Shampoo & Conditioner (would repurchase) - Another good shampoo & conditioner. My hair felt soft and conditioned after using these. I wouldn't go out of my way to find them, but if they're reasonably priced, I'd buy them.
  • Yves Rocher Quelques Notes d'Amour perfume (would repurchase) - This little sample smelled SO good. This is the one and only Yves Rocher perfume I've tried, and if they're all this good, I need to smell more! This is musky and slightly rosy - the best of both worlds!
  • Lush Honey I Washed the Kids Soap (would repurchase) - I really enjoyed this soap. It has a soft honey scent and is moisturizing. I love that it had a honeycomb imprint on it. I'd definitely buy this again. 
  • Lush Butterball Bath Bomb (would repurchase) - The Butterball bath bomb is one of my favorites from lush. It smells like vanilla and makes the bath extra moisturizing. I have another of these in my closet, but it won't be my last. I'll always repurchase this. 
  • Yankee Candle Winterland candle (would repurchase) - Aside from the fact this candle burned like crap (see all those ridges?!), it smelled nice like sweet peppermint and I enjoyed it.
  • Target Toasted Almond soy candle (would repurchase) - This smelled really good, just like you'd imagine toasted almonds to smell. I loved the chic maroon glass packaging. All around good candle.
  • B&BW Cranberry Pear Bellini candle (would not repurchase) - I don't really care for this scent. It's not bad, but just not anything I need.
  • Old Factory Candle in Roasted Chestnut (would repurchase) - I loved the smell of this. A full review can be found here

Friday, March 6, 2015


As a woman in my mid-20s, my skincare routine has two main components: prevention (from wrinkles, aging spots, sun damage, etc.) and maintenance (wrinkle reducing, blemish zapping, etc.) And because I keep edging closer and closer to that  "late 20's" mark, wrinkle maintenance is becoming real, folks. Lines I never had before are starting to weasel their way on to my face, and I'm trying to zap 'em while I can. I think I make my point clear that I was more than willing to try the brand new Acute Care line by Rodan + Fields, eh? 

This line of products is aimed at defending the skin against visible signs of aging for noticeably smoother and firmer skin. There are 4 steps to the routine and it's all rather simple to use, and very conveniently numbered so you never forget which order to use it all in.

There are two main ingredients that make this product what it is: Hyaluronic Acid (an anti-aging ingredient you most surely can't look left without seeing somewhere!) to plump and hydrate the skin, and Sh-Oligopeptide-1 (which I have never heard of) to reduce wrinkles  and increase firmess and elasticity. 

To begin, you use the Redefine Daily Cleansing Mask, which is unlike any cleanser I've used before. You apply it to the skin and let it dry for 2 minutes or so. It's a tad gritty, so when you go to wash it off, it gently exfoliates the skin. Because it doesn't suds up, I always felt like this wasn't cleaning my face well enough (but I never broke out from it). I would highly recommend wiping all traces of makeup away prior to using this cleanser, as I don't think it'd do a good job of makeup removal and it's not suitable for use on the eye area. 

Next, go in with the toner. It is clear and feels refreshing on the skin. It is meant to lightly exfoliate and allow the creams to sink further in to the skin. After that, you use either the morning Triple Defense Treatment, or the evening Overnight Restorative Cream. Both of these feel the same on the skin, but one is more peach-colored and the other is white. I really like the feel of these, as they're very silky and soft. In the morning I'd still use another moisturizer after using the cream, but in the evening I used the cream as my only moisturizer. My skin felt really plump and hydrated upon waking.

Every third night, you use these Skincare for Expression Lines patches and they're the oddest and coolest little things. You can see they're sort of textured, and what you do is peel off the sealed part, and firmly press these down in to the expression line you'd like to treat and then sleep with them on and removing them in the morning. It actually feels like teeny spikes going in to your skin to administer the product. It's so odd and I kind of love them! I primarily focused these on my upper forehead lines, and the first time I used them I noticed a definite improvement for half a day or so. However, over the next couple days, the line came back full force. Over the next uses, I didn't seem to notice much of a difference. 

I did try these patches on a couple lines above my eyebrows and the patches irritated my skin, causing a bumpy red patch that wasn't too noticeable but was certainly irritating. I didn't experience this irritation when I used these on my forehead, however.

I used these products for three weeks, and honestly, I can't say I noticed a difference. I do think that the Expression Line patches are a really cool thing and I'd buy those solely on their own because I think they would actually do something with extended use. 

Overall, I think these products are good, and it can't hurt to use them especially for preventative care, however they just didn't do a whole lot for me in the maintenance category. I'll continue to use the morning and night cream and I'll probably use all of the products until they're gone. But because these products are OUTRAGEOUSLY expensive.... like over $400, there is no way I'll be able to afford them again. I just can't spend that kind of money on skincare when I know of other good products that are far more affordable.

Ipsy Glam Bag | February 2015

I apologize that this post is so late, but unfortunately, the blush you see above came cracked and I had to wait for the replacement to arrive. Then I was on vacation, and well... yeah, this post is late.

If you've never heard of Ipsy, it's a monthly subscription service that delivers customized beauty products to your door in a fun keepsake bag monthly, for just $10/month. Click here to sign up.

Here's what came in February's bag:

Demeter Perfume in First Love - I kind of think all of these Demeter scents smell similar, this one being no exception. First Love is a very floral scent, characterized by jasmine, lemon zest, honeysuckle, water lotus and white rose. It's very heavy on the honeysuckle, and it reminds me a lot of this perfume.

City Color Cosmetics Creamy Lip Stain in Flirtini - At first I wasn't so sure about this color, but it's a little less pink as the bottle suggests. It's more mauve and totally wearable. 

Emite Makeup Professional Eyelash Curler - To be honest, I really don't need an eyelash curler. I've got naturally curled eyelashes. This is just an OK curler from those that I've tried - nothing special. 

Mitchell and Peach Fine Radiance Face Oil - I fell in love with the packaging first (I always judge a book by it's cover) and the product itself seems really nice, too. I love face oils.

ModelCo Blush Cheek Powder in Peach Bellini - Holy cow, I LOVE this stuff. The color and pigmentation are awesome. Think of Benefit Coralista but more pigmented. Love love love! And thanks to Ipsy for replacing my shattered one!

What did you get in your Ipsy bag? Let me know!

Athos Miracle Cream | Review

Hello - remember me?! I apologize for the week-long hiatus with no explanation, but my husband and I jetted off to the Dominican Republic for a beach getaway. (If you follow me on Instagram, you probably already know this!) It was good to stock up on some Vitamin D and salt air while the temps remained freezing here at home. Alas, we're back now and so is Glazed Over.

Today I've got a product all the way from Greece to chat about, something unique and totally of use if you're stuck in a cold, dry climate this winter. I'm talking about the Athos Miracle Cream.

The Athos Miracle Cream was originally created by the Monks of Mount Athos in Northern Greece. It promotes natural hydration, repair and protection of irritated or sensitive skin. This can be used in a number of ways: on dry hands, feet, cuticles, cracked or chapped skin, bug bites, burns or suburns, blisters, as tattoo-aftercare, for a foot massage or whatever other way you find to use it! '

This cream has a really nice earthy scent, sort of reminiscent of menthol and herbs. This cream is formulated with sage for a nice scent, mastic to keep this anti-microbial/oxidant/inflammatory, honey for moisturization and added antioxidants, seaweed for maintaining healthy and youthful skin, olive oil for skin moisturization and protection, and beeswax for natural protection against chapped, cracked and damaged skin. 

Personally, I have been using this on my knuckles before applying lotion. I have had some seriously dry joints and this really helps to provide added hydration. I like the refreshing earthy scent and I love that it's formulated with quality ingredients based on ancient knowledge of healing with natural ingredients. 

Athos Miracle Cream can be purchased at for $29.90.
