Apothica Review and $25 Gift Cerficate Giveaway


I'll admit that I am not one who wears makeup.  To be totally honest, on my wedding day my aunt applied my makeup.  I had no idea how to apply it and I didn't want to look like a clown on my very special day.  

I was recently introduced to Apothica.com, an online beauty boutique, which carries the finest selection of skin care, body care, aromatherapy, and cosmetic products on the market today, including the most natural, organic products available.

Apothica is dedicated to providing high quality products formulated that promote and enhance your natural beauty. Some of the brands they carry that you know and love are Glo Minerals, NARS, and Too Faced.


Hourglass cosmetics are luxurious and sophisticated. Products include a full range of products, including hydrating lip stick, corrective concealers, and anti-aging foundation. Hourglass brushes are cruelty-free, made from PETA-friendly Takelon synthetic fibers, which also help avoid possible allergic reactions. 

Even though I don't wear make-up, I love lipstick and lipgloss.  A little tint and shine can make the world of difference.

Hourglass Cosmetics Femme Rouge Velvet Crème Lipstick comes in a variety of light and beautiful colors.  This lipstick will leave your lips feeling soft, smooth and moisturized.  The blend of Vitamin E, Jojoba Seed and Honeysuckle are the perfect key ingredients.

Hourglass Cosmetics Extreme Sheen Lip Gloss is another one of my favorites. Make your lips sparkle and shine.  Perfect for everyday use or a night out on the town.

No matter how much (or how little) make-up you wear, you are sure to find something you can't live without at Apothica!  I was amazed at the variety and selection of items available.  It took me over an hour to decide what items to purchase, changing my mind on numerous occasions.

I was impressed at how quickly my items arrived.  My first package arrived just 2 days after I placed my order.  It doesn't get much better (or faster than that)!




 

WIN IT:

 ONE lucky Being Frugal and Making it Work reader is going to receive $25 Apothica Gift Certificate
