Review: Skin2Spirit Facial Serum

Hello budget beauties – today I’m going to post a flurry of reviews I agreed to do in exchange for free products.

The first one is from a company called Skin 2 Spirit which offers natural and organic, cruelty-free products. I got it through a company called Tomoson, which I’m impressed with thus far!

The product: Skin2Spirit Advanced Hyaluronic Facial Serum

#BESTSERUM (the hashtag I was asked to use for this product).

The price: $24.95 for 6 oz.

The claims: Superior moisturization, more potent hyaluronic acid formulation, good for all skin types, natural ingredients, non-comedogenic (meaning it won’t block pores), and finally, a promise of younger, fresh-looking skin.

Here’s what I think: I’ve been using this for a few weeks, and I like it so far. It’s light, it doesn’t irritate my skin, and works well on the parts of my face that are both dry and oily/acne prone.

The Verdict: Okay, honestly, I could never afford the price of this product. That means I’m highly unlikely to ever purchase it. Is it worth the money? That’s not for me to decide – it depends entirely on your budget. However, if you’re looking for a good product that’s organic, natural, cruelty-free and actually works, BUY IT, if you can afford to do so! The amount of product you get is 6 oz – far more than the average size of this type of product.

I think the company is great, and I’d be willing to try more of their products! I’ll continue to use this serum because it’s helped my skin and I am not allergic – and if you’re like me, that’s a big selling point!


Here’s the Mandatory Disclaimer: I got this product for free in exchange for an honest review. I agreed to try the product and post reviews on Amazon and my social media accounts (thankfully, WordPress is connected to Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr and google plus, which is hella helpful!). I wasn’t compensated in any way, and the fact that I got this product for free doesn’t mean I am going to give you a biased point of view. 

I’m a savvy consumer and when I see a sales pitch, I cringe! I can usually tell when somebody is being honest or if they’re outright providing an advertisement. I take the opinions and reviews of other people very seriously, and I don’t like to be duped – so I will NOT BS AT ALL! 

If my readers would be willing to click on my amazon reviews, that would be great! It would be EVEN BETTER if you could click on the part that says “was this review helpful?” and give it a “yes” because that increases the odds of me becoming an Amazon Vine reviewer – and Vine reviewers get free products in exchange for their opinions. I have no shame about the fact that I’m actively searching for free stuff, because as I said before, I’m always looking for deals, bargains, and I love to get new products! I could never afford to buy all of these things on my budget, but I deserve to have nice things, so this is one way I treat myself!

Thanks for reading, and stay tuned for more product reviews!



Reviews I Gotta Do!

I have been looking for skin care products to add to my routine, and I’ve learned a lot about the types of ingredients that are actually effective when it comes to the concerns I deal with – sensitive skin, mild chin acne, dry/flaky skin in the winter, and of course, the dreaded signs of aging that start to creep up on people in their late thirties!

Being a budget beauty, I’m always looking for ways to obtain items on the cheap, so when I found sites that give products away in exchange for honest reviews and blog posts, I decided to go for it! But this discovery has been overwhelming, because I’ve been trying a bunch of new products ranging from skin serums to natural essential oils, and a couple of other random things I thought I might want.

I got an email today that stated I have 24 hours to submit my reviews, and since I promised to blog write-ups, I’ve got to get on that! So be prepared for a flurry of reviews over the next few days! Whether or not I continue to receive and review products is up in the air at this point, because I’m terrible with deadlines, even though they hold me accountable!

For those who are interested in learning more about how I got these products, I’ll post a list of the websites, and I’ll share my favorites with you as well! In the meantime, I’ve got to get on writing the reviews! I’ve spent the past few hours putting all of this together – and I just finished writing a handful of reviews that I posted on

I’m passionate about beauty on a budget, but I must confess, I’m feeling a little overwhelmed with this hobby at the moment. I didn’t realize how easy it could be to get stuff for free! Maybe it isn’t exactly free, and at times, it requires a good amount of work to obtain products, but I’m enjoying this process so far!

I have earned about $150 in Amazon Gift cards over the past few months, and I’ve gotten hundreds of dollars worth of free items too! If you’re interested in learning more about how I’ve done this, I’ll break it all down really soon!
