By Carla Snuggs
Happy March, beauties! It's time for a roundup of some of the best products I’ve tried during February and March.. I loved discovering new brands and new products from the brands that I already love. I am so happy to share them with you!
Prepara Taco Serving Collection
Jazz up your family dinners! No need to wait for Cinco de Mayo, every day is taco day with festive Prepara Taco serving collection. Check out the stylish and durable melamine single and double taco holders for assembling and cradling your yummy tacos, taco spoons to help load up your tacos, the 3 section taco tray for piling up the fillings, and the tortilla savor ($26.99) for keeping tortillas warm. Works with both hard and soft shell tacos. The holders ($3.99-$6.99) and spoons ($4.99 set of two) are available in 3 colors ways: blue, yellow and red, the taco tray ($24.99) comes in blue or yellow. Makes for a great Mother’s Day or wedding gift too!

MesoLyft is an innovative beauty product that mimics the effects one receives from a professional micro-needling treatment. MesoLyft utilizes very fine, barely-there micro-needles, along with an attached tube containing a cocktail serum to condition the skin’s surface. The full Mesolyft collection includes:
Lips: Enhances lip volume and texture instantly, no tingling.
Eyes: VoluPlus gently plumps the skin, while Retinol and Vitamin C work double time to stimulate new collagen production.
Neck: Relaxes fine lines and wrinkles around the neck and chest.
Skin: Lightens dark spots, freckles, melasma, pigmentation on face, neck, chest and hands several shades within several days.
I’m currently using MesoLyft Lips and Skin and want to try the Eyes. I’ve noticed the texture of my lips improving as well as dark spots fading from the MesoLyft Skin.
Color Street Nails
Color Street Nails is on my faves list because with the Color Street Kits you can DIY manicures & pedicures in 10-15 minutes. They are super easy to put on and they last up to 14 days. I love no-fuss manicures and I love being able to get really creative with my nails also remove the designs easily when I’m done. They a no-brainer fun activity girls night in parties.

Vitabrid Vitamin C Skincare Cocktail
For a supercharged skin transformation, try a Vitamin C Skincare Cocktail from Seoul by combining Vitabrid’s Dual Serum with their FACE Brightening Powder for a potent hydrating and brightening mix. The result is an extremely powerful and customized k-beauty cocktail for younger, healthier looking skin. Vitabrid C12’s FACE Brightening Powder allows you to “boost” the Dual Serum even more once combined together. To use, rotate the bottom of the Dual Serum container clockwise to release the yellow Deep Care Serum. Shake the bottle to mix the clear Skin-Barrier Serum with the Deep Care Serum. Apply 2-3 pumps in the palm of your hand and add a few small dashes of the FACE Brightening Powder. Mix together and apply all over the face and neck.
Forehead Line Eraser from Nassif MD
Looking for a bulletproof way to get rid of fine lines and wrinkles on your forehead this season? Try this amazing new Forehead Line Eraser from Nassif MD Skincare! It’s a hydrating, lightweight gel made with shitake mushroom extract and other key ingredients that helps firm the look of skin and reduce the appearance of fine forehead lines. You’ll up your glow factor and your skin’s smoothness plus help reduce your pores. It truly makes my skin feel firm.
I was recently introduced to KPOP foods and got to try out some of their delicious snacks and sauces. I love Korean food and can’t get enough. Also, I am a sea snack fiend and was so excited that they sent me their Premium Organic Seaweed Snacks to try. I love that you can put them in your bag and go. I sneak them in the movies with me as a healthier alternative to traditional movies snacks (shhh!). I enjoyed the KPOP Starter Set, which includes the KPOP XXX Sauce, KPOP Kimchi Mayo Sauce, KPOP Sauce, KPOP bandana, and a KPOP Sticker Pack. I love the Kimchi Mayo and eat it on my lettuce wrapped sandwiches. The KPOP Starter set makes a great gift.
This winter!! Cold and dry outside. Hot and dry inside. These conditions take a toll on skin, but it is the perfect time to experience K-Beauty. FaceTory is a monthly subscription service that delivers a curated box of sheet masks that delivers a fun and easy way to experience the Korean beauty trend. The team at FaceTory travels to Korea regularly to discover the latest masks and cult favorites to include in the pack and recently began including sheet masks that they designed right here in the US and made in Korea based on what’s needed and trending. The subscription starts at just $8.90 per month for four masks, so it’s an affordable and simple way to achieve radiant skin this winter.

I am so excited to try these soak infusions and scrub from @saltbyhendrix I'm most excited to try the coco scrub! Baths have such great health benefits for blood AND immunity. 'Not only does a warm bath make the blood flow easier, it also makes it more oxygenated by allowing you to breathe deeper and slower, particularly when taking in steam. Taking a hot bath or spa can kill bacteria and improve immunity. It can relieve the symptoms of cold and flu." -Dane Kopman Who loves a good bath?
Looking to unwind this weekend? Taking a bath can be one of the easiest ways to de-stress after a rough week. And adding bath products infused with ingredients like lavender, jasmine, rose, pomegranate, and other decadent ingredients will take your bath experience to a whole new level. So light a candle, grab a glass of your favorite wine, and unwind with our favorite SALT BY HENDRIX bath products. Salt by Hendrix is available at Anthropologie and online at SALT BY HENDRIX.
