Press Sample

I have a few posts to complete today! I had some personal things going on the last couple days, so I had time for swatching and photos and night, but honestly my head wasn’t in the game to make any posts.  But the show must go on and after a really nice day with my son yesterday – I’m refreshed and ready to go.

First up today we have a small collaboration box between Cuticula and Lilly Anne’s Garden! Both brands have been featured on my blog before, and I personally love both brands. They came together for the Chasing Cupid Valentine’s Day Box!

While most Valentine’s Day items I’ll be sharing this week are more polish geared, this is more of a box to compliment those polish purchases. You receive  Cuticula Timeless Top Coat and 3 nail and hand care items from Lilly Anne’s Garden.

Let’s look at each individual item! All purchasing info will be located at the bottom of this post!

Cuticula Timeless Top Coat – Crushing On Candy

Cuticula Timeless Top Coat is a 5 free top coat that is fairly fast drying but is NOT a quick dry top coat. It will take a tad longer than quick dry top coats. It has a high gloss shine and can be used with nail art if you “float” the brush over the design rather than add pressure over the nail art.

The scent is Crushing On Candy which will remind you of gummy bears and lollipops. It has the sweet candy scent that will make you crave a blow pop.

I currently have 4 bottles of Timeless Top Coat and have used it many times!

Lilly Anne’s Garden Sugar Scrub – Love Is In The Air

Lilly Anne’s Garden Sugar Scrub is perfect to make your hands feel silky smooth. I found the sugar isn’t loaded down with oils, so it’s a much drier sugar scrub than others I have used. There is just enough to moisturize your hands and it exfoliates like a champ.

For this box, this Sugar Scrub is in the scent Love Is In The Air! This scent is a bright grapefruit and fruity floral blend that features a heart of white flowers and red berries. Sensual wood tones and natural green accents add texture to the blend as a base of sugared coconut and clear musk creates rich sweet undertones.

Ingredients: Sugar, Sweet Almond Oil, Grapeseed Oil, Jojoba Oil, Vitamin E Oil and fragrance.

Lilly Anne’s Garden 1 oz Creme De La Creme  – Hugs and Kisses

Possibly my favorite of the items in the box – the Creme de la Creme! What is it? It’s a thick cuticle creme perfect for these chilly months! You can slather it on (okay not slather, a little goes a long way) and put some cotton gloves on and let it sit and rejuvenate your cuticles. If you don’t like thinner cuticle creams, oils or balms – then this might be more to your liking. I have it on now and I’m typing away with no issues.

Hugs and Kisses is also my favorite scent in the box. It’s a juicy red pomegranate scent. Not too sweet, but a nice hit of fruitiness.

Ingredients: Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea Butter),Theobroma Cacao (Cocoa) Seed Butter ,Simmondsia Chinensis (Jojoba) Seed Oil, Cannabis Sativa Seed Oil, Vitis Vinifera (Grape) Seed Oil,Persea Gratissima (Avocado) Oil, Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis (Sweet Almond) Oil ,Tocopherol,  Water, Emulsifying Wax, Stearic Acid,Phenoxyethanol (and) Caprylyl Glycol (and) Sorbic Acid , Maranta Arundinacea Root, Fragrance.

Lilly Anne’s Garden Cuticle Oil – All You Need Is Love

The final item is Lilly Anne’s Garden Cuticle Oil! Now for my photos, I have a doe foot applicator cuticle oil, but with the box you will receive a rollerball version of it.  This is a nice oil that soaks in rather quickly and is perfect for reapplying throughout the day!

The scent is All You Need Is Love which is a blend of raspberry, cantaloupe and watermelon with a mix of jasmine and violet and a touch of grapefruit and kumquat. It also has a small amount of the pink sugar scent in it! For me the pink sugar helped elevate the sweetness and mellowed the entire blend out.

Ingredients: Jojoba Oil, Sweet Almond Oil, Grapeseed Oil, Hempseed Oil and Vitamin E Oil

Chasing Cupid Valentine’s Day Box

This is a super cute “hand pampering” box! It has pretty much all my nail care essentials in one place in some incredible scents, and also a top coat (cause who doesn’t use top coat?)

Price: $21.50

Where To Buy: Lilly Anne’s Garden Shop

Preorder Ends: Monday January 29th at 9PM

If you stumble upon this post AFTER the box is closed out, don’t worry! You can buy these items individually (not in these scents though!) from each maker in their shops with the following links: Cuticula Shop | Lilly Anne’s Garden

This is limited edition so tomorrow will be the last day to preorder! Don’t miss out! It’s a wonderful way to try both brands if you haven’t already!
