Budget Beauty

Hi! I am Cait- Mother of 2 girls with a 7 year age gap! I love beauty (especially natural/organic) and fashion. I'm a Maltese dog lover, fitness enthusiast, pop culture buff, lover of all things that make life beautiful! I am a serious shoe, purse, and skinny jeans addict. I am so happy you found my blog- where I share my 'adventures' in reviewing sub boxes, Influenster VoxBoxes, and collaborations/reviews/giveaway with companies that have products I think you'll love. I also share super good deals that you don't want to miss!

Hello Everyone, Anyone? Miss blogging and you! #Giveaway Poll for Next #Prize-

Hey readers and friends! I still hope I have some readers out there – and if you may have left, I hope you come back! As most of you know, I took the summer ‘off’ from blogging to take care of 3 very active kids (13, 9, and 2 years old- all girls! Help me!)- I totally intended to come back in the fall at the start of the school year—- aaaaand then I never came back…..but remained pretty active on fb and IG. Good news is- I ended up growing my IG quite a big 🙂 If you’re not following me my handle is @budgetbeautysite_cstone412cs

I have been wanting to come back- I have been wanting to blog. I just have been having some issues. Life just isn’t easy sometimes but I try to make the best of it. I like to try to stay positive but sometimes I feel like besides my wonderful little girls, there isn’t much to be positive about- I am in a big funk. Every had one of those?

There’s something that I have never really shared with my readers-but I will share now- (another blogger shared her struggle and I found it comforting to know that someone so beautiful and successful also has the same issues that I do)- So maybe by me admitting my issues, I hope to help someone get through their tough times. —- I struggle badly with anxiety- general anxiety and really bad social anxiety…..It’s actually really hard for me to work or sometimes I don’t even want to leave the house to go to the mall. I find people of any social status, money status- scary. Especially people that are ‘better than me’- I always feel like people are looking down on me and judging me.

Because of the issues with anxiety, sometimes I end up in a depressed state for weeks. Sometimes my body hurts from being depressed and not getting the endorphins that I need. That’s pretty much what I have been battling for months. And that is why I have not been blogging- I haven’t been inspired. I have been very down and unmotivated. The lack of sun and too much cold doesn’t help either- I definitely have Season Affective Disorder (SAD). Do you have that or have you heard of it? It is definitely a real thing. I have had it since I was a teen. We live in Massachusetts where after the clocks change in October, it is dark all the time. And cold for 6+months out of the year. If I could move, I would!

A bunch of stuff also happened where I was working- I lost my job – basically because the new store manager didn’t like me. Which really brought me down because I found out everyone in that place who I was so nice to and did nice stuff for, were all two faced and against me, etc. But I am obviously better off without people like that in my life.

–One key to happiness and a way to keep positive is to surround yourself with people who are positive and happy and actually care for you! And they are glad that you care for them.

I live in a small town and on the outskirts of another small town- where everyone self-medicates- a lot of them don’t work and the highlight of their life or day is to gossip. —-Do any of you live in towns like that? I had never lived anywhere so bad until I moved here.  I am shocked at how mean and cruel people can be. ——Isn’t the golden rule- do unto others as you want to be done to you? Does anyone even care about the rule anymore- I know some people do, I do-but not enough people do around these parts.


Well, anyway, I am back. I WANT to be back! But I hope I still have readers out there. If I have to- I will start at the beginning again. Those who are still out there- thank you and I truly appreciate you!

Please feel free to leave any type of comments- questions, tips, criticism (if you’d like), anything-

I was trying to get a few reader giveaways going with some really cool companies but since I haven’t written in so long they wanted to wait a little while. So I will still work at it. I have a great list of shops that I would love to introduce you to and would love to bring you giveaways from! So stay tuned, hopefully we can do something soon! (if not, to get the blog back up and people reading again, I may do my own giveaway- bought from me!


Let’s take a poll in the comments- comment with the number of the perfume you’d like to win- the most votes will be the giveaway prize-

If I did a perfume giveaway which one would you like to win-

1–Yves Saint Laurent- Opium -Women Eau de Toilette Natural Spray 50ml/1.6 fl oz-worth about $77-100

2—Dolce and Gabbana – Light Blue -(worth about $80+)

3—Gucci – Premiere- 1.6 fl oz- worth about $80+

4- I also have 2 Coach ones and a Juicy Couture (I believe the Original)

5- CRABTREE & EVELYN – CITRON Honey & Coriander – 4 PIECE GIFT SET W/ PINK PETAL NAIL POLISH- $26 (sold out, hard to find)



Please Vote, I know I may not get a lot of votes or comments but it’s a start- The first steps in getting something done is- Visualize it, work on it/start it, (try to) finish it, and be brave enough to post it. No one may respond but at least you are getting back out there! And starting somewhere is better than not starting at all, right?

one last note is I have been sharing fashion, beauty, mama, and techie giveaways to the Budget Beauty Facebook page- so check that out-

Influenster and Sally Hansen #AirbrushPerfectLegs #Voxbox – awesome product- Review

I have been an “Influenster” for a while and I do like it a lot. I haven’t received a 5 piece box in a while, pretty much since they updated the site. I feel like they did away with those, for the most part. They’re more like Bzzagent now, where they’re sending one (maybe 2) products at a time.


About a month ago, I received the Sally Hansen Airbrush Legs Voxbox. I got a deluxe sample in light. At first, I was like “great, what on earth will I use this for”. I had never considered buying it before and don’t go to weddings (like ever), don’t go on dates (like ever) (and even if I did, hubs knows that my legs are pale lol).

Anyway, 5 weeks passed. No matter how much I tried tanning my legs, they just don’t tan like the rest of my body. My Irish skin basically goes from ghost pale to fair-light with a reddish tint…. Yay. And for some reason, even with tanning oil with no spf, legs just stay pale. So I finally decided to give this stuff a go. And what do ya know, I liked it, a lot!


I used a bit much on the first leg and it took A LOT of rubbing in and at first I was like OMG light is even too dark for me but once rubbed in, it looked Amazing. And it seemed to have some sort of moisturizing property to it. They are calling it makeup for your legs, because it is not self tanner. It washes off with soap and water yet is supposedly waterproof/water resistant (not sure how that works, didn’t get to test that theory yet). I basically think that it’s like a foundation with built in primer for your legs because it made my legs super soft and they felt and looked amazing after.

It was not “strong” enough or thick enough to help cover up a big black and blue that I had, but did help blend it in a little. But did cover my very minor blue area of varicose veins from my 2nd pregnancy (mine don’t stick out, they’re just blue and unsightly).

If I could have mixed fair and light to create a custom shade it may have looked better. However, The light wasn’t so bad about an hour after I applied it. I think I just put on wayyyy too much! I would definitely need fair in the Massachusetts winter. Stay away from dry areas like knees and tops of feet. And I would reccomend exfoliating before use. You don’t “have” to exfoliate but I found that it made the product work ten times better and look less streaky. No funky smell during or after. Stayed on for a full day, even after wearing tight pants for a while and it didn’t come off on the pants (or sheets). I didn’t bother washing it off and it lasted into the next day, granted it wasn’t as dark but still looked better than my regularly pale legs! I was hoping it would help cover up bruises more than it did, but mine were pretty dark.  So all in all I think it’s a great product that I would’ve never bought but now that I tried it, liked it a lot, I will definitely be buying it!

Here is my youtube review, it is ten minutes, and not too great. I am definitely not a “youtuber” and it’s hard re to film when it’s me holding the ipad mini myself.

(wow, 2 posts in one day! I am on a roll! I took the summer off to take care of the kids but I am back!)

Birchbox for $5 or Get a FREE full size $25 Make lipgloss Gift with Purchase

About once a year Birchbox has a half off deal where you can get your box for $5 instead of $10! Personally, ten dollars/month is a bit too much for me for samples. But you can’t really go wrong with $5. (especially now that Birchbox has ‘revamped’ their box where you can choose between different boxes or you can choose your samples and there’s a few other things that are new options.)

BIRCHBOX​ is having a few deals right now- first if you sign up using my link you will get $5 in the shop (deal ends October 9) and if you use code 5box —– you will get your first box at $5 (which is half off).
Or you can use code MAKEGWS which will get you a free full size $25 luminous lipgloss from MAKE in dragonfruit.


I usually get the $5 box and then get the next months box and base whether if I should keep going. I used to like Ipsy because at least you would get deluxe and full size products. It’s been a while (like a year) since I’ve gotten a Birchbox and they’ve done a ton of upgrades like customizing and picking different samples.

Hey all! I’m part of another awesome giveaway (organized by the amazing Oh My Gosh Beck! And co-hosted by a group of amazing bloggers that I recommend checking out, who I will list At the bottom of this post…..)

The prize is a $200 Free People gift card! There are quite a few daily entry options. The giveaway actually started Friday June 12 at 6pm EST (but I’m obviously a little late posting! Sorry!) So hurry and get your entries in now til July 2!

No excuses- but- me and the baby have been super sick. She was even in the hospital because she was dehydrated badly from vomiting and not wanting to drink or eat for over 4 days and fever! It was scary to watch a normally hyper and very mischievous child just lay there, not moving or wanting to play….scary and sad! She’s finally better which is why I’m finally posting again…..


Anyway- the giveaway runs until 7/2 and like I said, you can enter daily!

I love Free People so it was hard to decide to participate in the giveaway or not so I could enter! I decided to participate because I figured my readers would like this prize!

i need to be totally honest- I am still learning a lot about blogging and WordPress- but I have no idea how to make clickable HTML links and when I try, it never works…so you’re supposed to be able to click on the co-hosts blog name but I can’t get it to work so I put the link next to the name….. Sorry! If any of you know how I can do this, let me know lol….

Who Doesn’t LOVE Cute (and Affordable) Workout Clothes? Fabletics Review- 50% discount code

Hey ya’ll! It’s been a hella long time since I’ve blogged. I have been on IG daily…I am really bad at keeping a “blogging schedule” anyway, but I hadn’t been sick in years and then BAM- all of a sudden, me and the baby have been super sick- we were at doctor like 2x a week for the last month. I had an ear infection and my ear drum burst! She had a head cold, then a chest cold and needed nebulizer treatments again, then when it looked like she was getting better she got a tumy bug and got hives everywhere!

Anyway, I haven’t been working out much since the end of May, other than long walks with the kiddos, but I love cute workout clothes! I love workout clothes for home for an actual workout–But I Really love cute workout clothes for the neighbors (or whomever) to see me walking in lol. We live about a 15-20 minute walk from our town jungle gym & sprinkler park/splash pad so we walk there a lot …..

Some of the best and highest quality workout/athletic clothes, especially for price, are from Fabletics! I’ve ordered from them 3 times. The first time was about two years ago- I got a 3 piece outfit (sweatshirt, bra, Lima capri) for $25. The same fall I ordered another 3 piece outfit (jacket, bra, Lima capri) and I did it under a different email so I could get the new member discount of $25 again lol. I cancelled both monthly accounts after because I couldn’t afford the monthly price and was afraid I would forget to skip.

I continue to get their emails, which I highly recommend doing because about 3 weeks ago, I saw an AMAZING sale (that they rarely do.)   I got a 3 piece outfit for around $18!!!!!! (And included shipping)! I think instead of the normal 50% off (making outfits $25), the sale was like 70% off, making outfits around $17-18!!!

Seriously. How could I not take up that offer?


River of Grass Outfit

I got the cutest outfit! I got a black and white sports bra (with cups because I’m super flat and deflated from breastfeeding two kiddos lol  I’m only an A cup/small B). I also got a super soft black tank top that looks awesome over the black and white bra. The tank leaves just a little bit of room to see a little of the black/white bra but not so much that it looks trashy because I love modest clothing…..

And—–I finally got my hands on some camo leggings! I had wanted a pair of Fabletics’ camo leggings for like 6 months when they launched! (One thing that ‘stinks’ about Fabletics is if you don’t buy a popular item and it sells fast (like all their camo stuff sold fast) you’re most likely not going to get it …..so act fast if you see something that you like! But you can put your email on a restock list and supposedly the more people who want it restocked, the more likely it will come back….

All this for $18- Yes, Please!

All this for $18- Yes, Please!

^^^^^^here is a pic of the outfit that I got^^^^^^

You can see all the options that the shirt and leggings come in besides what I ordered. So many choices for the leggings!

You can see all the options that the shirt and leggings come in besides what I ordered. So many choices for the leggings!

I love Fabletics because all the leggings I have from them have been worn tons of times over the last 2.5 years- working out or doing errands after working out- and are still like new. My black pair with red lines are the oldest and most worn, but you’d never know! The only worn area is where upper/inner thighs rub but people really can’t see it, only I know it. I’ve also worn my Fabletics sports bras quite a bit and they are like I just bought them! My jacket has only been worn a handful of times because it’s tight and not my style but is still like new. And my teal sweatshirt is so soft and other than the stain that is from me, is still soft and amazing!  So for $25 – the outfits will last you at least 1-3 years, possibly more I just haven’t gotten there yet! That’s money well spent!

My ‘secret’ to keep lots of things like new is- I wash them (either by machine or hand) but DON’T dry them! I hang over shower curtain or lay flat to dry! Bras (sports or regular), workout pants, leggings (regular or workout)- I never dry because it messes with the elasticity and will wreck it eventually!

If you use the new member discount and get the outfits for $20-25 you really can’t beat that. I don’t really want to spend $50+ on their clothes (even though they are worth it!) but you can do the first time buyer discount, get your outfit, and then cancel or skip as many months as you want. Just remember to skip by the 5th of every month!  Their clothes are worth the $45-55 that they charge after your first month but I just can’t afford it.

Currently, they’re not having the super sale that I lucked out on getting but if you sign up now you can get your first outfit for $25 with free shipping and returns. Or sign up for emails and watch for the emails that say “save 70%” (they just had a 70% one day sale over this weekend that I missed!)



If you use my invite link/code it should be automatically set up for the $25  outfit (which is basically half off the full price of the outfit). And after you get 3 or 2 awesome pieces for way cheap, you can either keep your membership and just remember to skip by the 5th of every month or you can just cancel it (I beleive you have to call or live chat to cancel, although one time I did cancel via email but I don’t know if that’s changed).

I would just either create an account or sign up for emails and then maybe you will see an awesome sale pop up again soon. But I had never saw them do anything that cheap before that’s why I acted super fast!

They also just launched their first capsule collection called Fly- which I think is pretty ‘fly’! Haha…. FLY. Is designed to be a capsule collection of pieces you can wear for working out or going out. And since it is a capsule collection (for those who don’t know what that is. I didn’t until about 5 months ago) every piece could be worn with another and they all match …..

They also just launched a men’s collection, which could be a good Father’s Day goft for the active Dad in your life. I have been seeing some emails offering some pretty good sales on the men’s collections to promote it.

If you didn’t know, Fabletics is founded and created by Kate Hudson (who I love)….she does a really good job putting the outfits together. Fabletics has pictures on their site and Facebook and IG of her, and other super stars, wearing Fabletics clothes out in public and ‘in real life’.

Between the men’s launch and the Fly capsule collection launch it seems like they’re really branching out. They’re obviously doing well. But when you sell great quality stuff at great prices, you go places! Their customer service used to get a lot of complaints on the fb page but I have never had a issue. They’ve always let me fix my issues. My only complaint is they are hard to understand most of the time.

So check em out, if you haven’t yet! Obviously, I would love if you use my link so I could get $10 off another outfit lol.



*******update june 23 2015—- so just to amuse myself I clicked my own referral link and I see that this outfit is still available! If you’re interested- it’s toward the bottom of the page where it says “popular women’s” and it shows/scrolls a bunch of different outfits, one of which is the River of Grass! But it is $25. But that’s pretty great for a 3 piece outfit that I know will last a while!

My Experience with Dessange Paris Hair Products- an Influenster Voxbox

I suck at coming up with titles for posts! Lol! Whatever….

For years I have used John Freida blonde products and they were ok. But me and shampoos and conditioners always “breakup” after a couple weeks….

I was sent the #dessangevoxbox from #influenster and it came with shampoo, conditioner, and CC cream…..

My Dessange VoxBox Contents

My Dessange VoxBox Contents

Nice Blonde Color! Cant't Complain!

Nice Blonde Color! Cant’t Complain!

I’m sure at this point in time everyone knows what influenster is. Maybe? If not, ask me, basically they give you products to test and post about.
My most recent ‪#‎influenster‬ ‪#‎voxbox‬ is from a brand I had never heard of called ‪#‎Dessange‬ I was sent the ‪#‎blonde‬ box that contained color safe and color enhancing shampoo, conditioner, and a CC (color correcting) cream which is purple (according to them it is blue) to take any brassy-ness out.
I hadn’t had my hair dyed in months but I tried the shampoo and conditioner and it actually brightened my natural hair. And it’s a very creamy shampoo which didn’t make my hair feel horribly dry. The conditioner is thin but works well.
I got my hair colored on Sunday April 12th (My bday ….hint….hint…. Hahaha) I have been using the shampoo and the conditioner since then, and it’s working well. A few days ago, I used the CC cream to see if it would lighten or brighten my hair,,,it seemed to do a pretty good job. I didn’t have much brassy-ness anyway but I’ll let you be the judge from my pics. (It says blue pigments for correction of unwanted brassy color) it looked purple to me not blue….whatever, it seemed to work.


The CC Cream is on....

The CC Cream is on….

Blondes Do Have More Fun

Blondes Do Have More Fun

The only thing I don’t like about the products is the scent is very strong and I don’t particularly like it, but my boyfriend says it smells fine so I’m good. Second, it seems to make my hair a little greasy after day 1.5-2 (yes I go 2-3 days sometimes with no washing,,,it’s good for your hair).
Target carries this brand. It seems to be like a John Freida type brand for blondes. And from what I saw on YouTube they have brown and red too…..
I give the Dessange shampoo and conditioner (2 separate products) a B+. I give the Dessange CC brass color correcting cream an A.

Did you get a voxbox lately? What was it?

Amazing Hair Savior- Pura D’or Argan Oil- Organic Shampoo and Conditioner for Thinning Hair or Hair loss— Review

Sponsored by BrandBacker

If you follow me on Instagram, which I hope you do, you may have saw pics of me and my very thin hair. I also have issues with losing clumps, like handfuls of it whenever I wash it. Scary stuff no matter what age you are!

(If you do not follow me on IG my handle is @budgetbeautysite_cstone412cs I post a lot about fitness, motivation, pics of my toddler, and if you’re interested in giveaways- I do a lot of reposting and info about giveaways! Later today I will be posting a big Target giveaway that I’m a part of which requires following me, and a daily like and comment on a different pic daily! More info on that on the next post later today. If you’d like to check out some of my Instagram posts, I have my account linked so some of my pics are located alllll the way at the bottom of my blog.)

So for starters, it’s organic which is great! Their shampoos and conditioners are free from SLS, Parabens and Gluten!

**Info from the brand page- For more than four years, Pura d’or has been growing a culture planted on a natural set of values and beliefs. But when all is said and done it comes down to one unified mission—to create organic personal care solutions that naturally work. All our ingredients are grown on trees, not in test tubes. Our products are artisanally handcrafted by a hybrid team of artists and scientists, not by machines. Some say that this is a step backward, but we believe that this is a step in the direction of how things should be. Pura d’or creates better beauty products from ingredients that are not only naturally beneficial, but are also sustainably grown and raised with respect for the animals that eat them and the people who produce them.

We are animal cruelty free, USDA biobased certified and Dr. Trusted.

We are #1 on Amazon for Shampoos and conditioners. We know that you will fall head over heels with Pura d’or!

For more information on Pura d’or check out our website at http://www.purador.com

We offer free shipping to anywhere in the continental U.S. ******

I thought there was no help for me. Thanks to Brandbacker I got to try a shampoo and conditioner from Pura D’or which is organic! The real names for shampoo and conditioner on the bottles are- Pura D’or, Argan Oil, Premium Organic Shampoo, Hair loss prevention therapy (then it lists some info and benefits which I will list later in post. The conditioner bottle says- Pura D’or, Argan Oil, Premium Oranic Conditioner, Lavender Vanilla. I love the smell- it is more vanilla than lavender (I dislike lavender a lot.)


So I started using this shampoo about a month and a half ago….I have seen huge, huge improvements! It is a hair loss prevention set so it has really helped with hair loss! I went from losing clumps and handfuls of hair to losing none or a few strands with every wash. Amazing stuff.
Obviously it does contain Argan Oil which is in there to help make your hair healthier. I am assuming that they put the Argan oil in there because a lot of females (maybe even males) lose hair due to breakage, not because they have a hair loss issue. I wear a top knot or bun almost daily and fall asleep with it in a lot. I have started working on that bad habit because I had so much breakage there were huge patches near my ears that were like I had a bob haircut!

So anyway, this stuff is awesome.
The shampoo does smell not so hot- it is very ‘herb-y’ smelling but after you put the conditioner in, it totally masks the smell of the shampoo (which was good for me because I really disliked that herb smell)!


The benefits listed on the Shampoo bottle are:
– 12 Advanced DHT blockers to stop premature hair loss
– For thinning hair, receding hair lines, and excessive shedding (I had thinning hair and excessive shedding in the shower and out.)
– For all hair types, Men, Women, even Color Treated (I just got my hair colored and I’m not sure I want to test if it really is ok for color treated. I am sure it is because all their other statements turned out to be true.


The Benefits listed on the amazing smelling conditioner bottle are:
– Enhance shine, manageability, and control
– Gentle, natural, and nourishing
– Made from 99% vegetable ingredients (how cool is that?!)
Plus again, it smells so great!
My experience with the conditioner- it is thick but sometimes I have to use a lot or even a squirt from a thicker one to get all the tangles out. For the most part it is great, and now that I got a trim, maybe it will work fine by itself.

The shampoo works awesome for the thinning and hair loss part. My only complaints are: like I said before, the herb smell. 2nd) for an Argan Oil shampoo I kinda figured that it would be more ‘nourishing’ or conditioning….after I use it, my hair feels sooooo dry! But once I use the conditioner it is ‘comb-able’. (I just got a haircut so now that the dead ends are gone I may have no issues.)

On top of this set of hair products I have been taking the max amount of Biotin for 2 months and I’m pretty sure that has helped too.

So I definitely reccomend these products which can be purchased on Amazon.

Thanks for reading and there will be another post today with the Instagram giveaway info. I usually don’t post twice in 1 day but only today because the giveaway started at Noon!

Tomorrow or next day I will be writing about some hair vitamins I tried!
I’ve been on a “save my hair” kick for the last two months lol….
