Alima Pure

If you’re a lover of natural beauty, you’re going to love this.

Alima is a makeup brand that focuses on using the least ingredients with the highest quality. Their pure products are never tested on animals and their packaging is created with eco-friendly soy based inks and 100% recycled paper.

“Our makeup is crafted to help every woman present her best self to the world with confidence. Women everywhere living their lives to the fullest, achieving their goals, making a difference; that is beauty at its most beautiful.” – Alima Pure

Their message is good and their products are better. I have been struggling with acne lately thanks to a hormone pill I had to take for a week. I feel extremely uncomfortable in my own skin while working where people are constantly looking at it, but, my Alima products really make a difference.

When I need to, I can cover up my blemishes without the stress of clogging my pores. I know the products only contain basic minerals and these cruelty free products bring out the best in my face and my investments. I really feel naturally beautiful even on the days that I’ve needed a little extra foundation. It gives my skin a nice glow and feels like a healthy enhancement rather than a caked on mask.

  • 1x Luminous Shimmer Blush – Rosa / Sample for $1.75 each
  • 1x Concealer – Sand / Full for $14.00 each
  • 1x Satin Matte Foundation Samples – Cool 1 for $1.75 each

My purchasing process went very smooth, which is exactly what I felt when I put of my Alima foundation for the first time.

Make up can be hard to order online and that fact is taken into account. Samples of all products are offered at the low cost of $1.75 and they are an amazing value! The only full product that I purchased was my foundation, which was just $14.

I also received an additional product of which I am unsure of, but, like they say, if it’s free, it’s for me! I believe my additional green beauty treat is one of their new eye shadows and I am very happy they sent it. It looks too dark for my taste and is definitely not something I would pick out for myself by any means, but, it goes on so lite and effortlessly that I can actually see myself wearing it.

Overall, I’m extremely happy to add these products to my makeup basket. I feel like my skin can breath but it’s also glowing and looks natural. Obsession can’t quite cover it. Thanks Alima! xo

MY ZuVi PANTS ARE HERE!

WOOH! Finally. My Sail Away pants arrived yesterday.

I viewed my tracking to see what had happened within the 16 days it took for this purchase to actually reach me. They were in “Pre-shipment” from August 7 – August 22. Once they were accepted at the USPS Origin Facility in Anaheim, California, the package only took 2 days to reach my doorstep in upstate New York. Needless to say, I’m disappointed with that 15 day period where my package just sat in Pre-shipment and my emails went unanswered.

Meanwhile, I emailed ZuVi twice and still have yet to hear back. So, ZuVi needs to work on their customer service. This was not a pleasant process.

On the upside, I will say that I LOVE THESE PANTS. I was worried about their comfort due to the fact that they are made from plastic bottles, but WOW. These are some of the most comfortable clothes I have ever worn.

The clothing line takes yarn that was made from recycled plastic bottles and mixes it with spandex. The ratio is 16% spandex and 84% recycled PET.

I wore them to yoga this morning and they felt so weightless and so flexible that I barely remembered I was wearing anything at all. In addition, I received so many compliments already!

There were also an free pare of Blue Crush Shorties which are sold in their store for $38 (same price as my Sail Away pants). I’m not sure if this was an addition due to the shipping problems or what, but, I’m not complaining.

All in all, I love my purchase because the pants are eco-friendly, comfortable and fashionable. They’re more expensive than I usually spend but definitely a great investment as I know I will wear them often.
