March Beauty Army Box

I got my March Beauty Army box today, yay! For those of you who are not familiar with Beauty Army, you pay $12 a month for six deluxe sized beauty samples! Samples range from hair care, skin care, makeup, to body products! Its a great way to get large samples to test products before committing to the full  size. I have to say, most of their samples are quite close to the full size product though! Its amazing and quite a deal for all beauty lovers out there! Your samples are customized for you when you fill out a beauty profile on your account and you get to choose your six samples! How could you not love that!? Anyways, here are my samples I got this month:

Tarte Smooth Operator Amazonian Clay Illuminating Serum

This illuminator works beautifully with the amazonian clay foundation. It adds a perfect glow to the skin that looks natural and radiant. A little bit goes a long way, just a few dabs and you are good. I used this mixed with my foundation and areas I focus on are my cheek bones and the bridge of my nose. What I love most about this serum is that its free of oil, fragrance, parabens, sulfates, petrochemicals, GMO's, and synthetic dyes!

This product retails for $32


Tarte Amazonian Clay Foundation

This is my new favorite foundation! Its unlike any other foundation I've tried. The texture is like a thick, whipped mousse. However, it does not look cakey or feel heavy/thick on the skin. In fact, it feels very light and airy! It goes on very smooth and blends extremely well. The best part? This foundation is free of oil, fragrance, parabens, sulfates, petrochemicals, and GMO's! I definitely recommend this foundation for anyone looking for a more natural foundation that looks airbrushed and flawless!

This product retails for $38
