It’s almost Valentine’s Day and all I’m thinking about are roses. I normally don’t like any specific type of flowers accept the one I really love, peonies. They are absolutely my fave.
Since Valentine’s Day is around the corner and the most famous flowers for this occasion is rose. I thought why not talk about a few rose beauty products that I’m currently loving and have enjoyed using them these day. I want to use this special occasion to share some rose-love with you.
Before I show you what are in my rose beauty and skincare collection, let’s talk about the benefits of rose for a little. You might already know that rose helps rejuvenate and replenish skin that’s why a lot of products on the market now incorporate rose as an ingredient.
Rose has antioxidants and antibacterial properties that can help regenerate skin tissue and heal scars. Rose water helps to hydrate, moisturize and maintain its PH balance in your skin. It also helps fight free radicals.
The scent of roses can also help lift up your emotion if you are feeling down.
Now, at my house we always pick up roses and I have realized that every time we have flowers around the house they really pick up everyone’s mood. I encourage you to have flowers around your place to make your space more lively and for your emotional wellbeing.
Those are some benefits of the rose. There are still more, just easily search on Google you will find a tons of them
By the way, at the end of this post, I’m announcing the winner of our #GOODVIBESGIFTING contest of January 2019. Check it out if you are one of the 6 winners who will receive a $25 Starbucks gift card and one surprise gift from me. 🙂
If you’re ready let’s get into my mini reviews on each of my favorite rose beauty and skincare products.
What I like about this mask is that it is so refreshing every time I use it. My skin turns out super soft and smooth. I love that the scent is not over powerful, it’s a beautiful rose scent. The texture of this mask is jelly-like and very easy to apply. No mess, no drip while using it.
The fun part of this mask is that you can refrigerate it and use it as an overnight mask as well. It’s one of my favorite face masks I tried recently.
I have a blog post about my favorite face masks for all concerns if you would like to check it out.
Pixi by Petra Rose Collection
I had a chance to try the whole rose collection of Pixi by Petra and have been loving these four products so far.
This rose oil, I’m on bottle number 3. I love how quick this oil absorb into skin. I don’t feel too oily after applying this oil on. This oil gives a healthy glow look to my skin and moistens up my skin very well. It has a light rose scent which I like because it’s good when layering more rose products on.
I have been using face tonic for quite sometime and this one is my new favorite. I guess I have to give credit to Pixi by Petra that came out with products that provide comfort to skin.
This tonic is very gentle and again quick to absorb into my skin just like the other products I mentioned earlier. The beauty benefits of this rose tonic is to help with skin tone improvement, brightening, moisturizing and color correction.
My acne scares and blemishes on my face are starting to clear out slowly after using this tonic for about 2 weeks.
I’m into face mists lately and this one is so divine even my husband likes to use it. It’s very soothing when spraying onto my face. It also helps moisturize and hydrate your skin.
It’s like you are spraying rose water on your face without the oily affect afterwards. If you’re looking for a glowy and to illuminate your skin, I do not recommend using this mist because you will only get a natural looking glow from this product.
What I like the most about face mist is that you can apply it anytime you’d like.
My oh mind! This highlighting luminous powder is so gorgeous! I’m absolutely in love with the rose design. It gives such a beautiful glow once you apply a small amount to the top of your cheekbones, center of your chin, bridge of your nose, and center of your forehead.
I love that I can use it dry or damp for an intense look. It doesn’t make my skin feel and look cakey at all.
I was afraid to use it at first because it’s too pretty and I did not want to ruin the beauty of it. But now I just can’t stop using this highlighter.
The only down side about this product is the high price point ($60), but it’s totally worthy it. 🙂
This roller is by far the cheapest one from a well-known brand I saw on the market not including the ones that you can buy from amazon.
I have been using face roller for over 6 months now and have been loving the feel and results it gives to my skin. I have different types of stones, white jade, black jade, amethyst (I broke it the other day!) and this rose quartz one.
What I love about them is that they are from nature, won’t harm your skin and have specific healing powers and meanings behind them.
For skin benefits, the stone helps depuff and reduce the appearance of wrinkles. It supports blood circulation. I see my pores are getting smaller as well.
My husband and I are switching to an aluminum-free deodorants since last year and this one is our favorite.
It doesn’t smell like roses but it does smell pleasant. It doesn’t stain on cloths and it’s non-sticky which make us love using it. My underarm area feels very comfortable and dry all day.
If you are a first time user of a non aluminum deodorant, you might want to put it on every few hours just to make sure you won’t stink others! LOL! You will need sometime to adjust and let your body detox all the bad before your underarm area gets used to a chemical free product.
The one I have here is the Vanilla + Air for Creativity: awaken the mind and unleash your creative energy with violet, rose, and vanilla.
Those are all of my rose faves at the moment. If you’re looking to buy rose products for yourself or gifting it this Valentine’s Day, don’t hesitate to check some of this products out.

Introducing you to my new style series today, “The V Armoire” – a collection of vegan handbags I started collecting since late 2018. I added “The V Armoire” to my fashion categories on this blog and I’m so excited to be sharing all of my vegan bags I collect with you here every/ (or every other) Wednesday. #VeganWednesday
Introducing you to my new style series today, “The V Armoire” – a collection of vegan handbags I started collecting since late 2018. I added “The V Armoire” to my fashion categories on this blog and I’m so excited to be sharing all of my vegan bags I collect with you here every/ (or every other) Wednesday. #VeganWednesday A little bit of a story behind the name picking here. I picked “The V Armoire” to go along with my social account name, “The Vibes Closet”. Instead of “Vibes” I only use V which stands for Vegan.
And instead of “Closet”, I use “Armoire”. It sounds very classy to me which I really love. Before we get into what bag I have to share with you today, I have to let you know first that I’m still using non-vegan products. But this is a good start and I’m proud of it. What I like most about vegan bags are the affordable price point. I can buy 10-20 bags for a price of one luxury leather handbag. Seriously I got about 10+ vegan handbags from all the holiday sales last year.
I really love the size of this bag, it is not too big or not too small. The bag dimensions are approximately about 8″H x 8″W x 2.5″D. As you can see from my photos, the luggage tag accent is adding a really fun detail to it. This bag comes with an adjustable strap, (strap drop: 25 inches). I love a zipper closure as well. It has 2 interior pockets: 1 slip and 1 zipper pocket.
Overall, this bag is very cute and functional.
HOW I STYLE THIS BAG
I picked this bag to go with my plum fit and flare dress. Because the bag is white, I’m playing with white accessories like beret, sunglasses and ankle boots to match with the color of the bag. I really love the contrasting color of the dress and my accessories but I want to make this look a lot more of a statement so I added some cool patterns like leopard. With the texture of leopard print tights it makes the look a lot more fun and interesting. You can definitely pull this look together for a Valentine’s day date or a special date night. A round bag shape would pretty much be an appropriate match with any style of cloths.
Share with me your thoughts on vegan handbags:
Do you think it’s a trend or it will be a permanent part of our way of living?
I hope you enjoy this blog post and considered looking into adopting vegan products into your lifestyle.
Stay tuned for more vegan bags next week. You can click The V Armoire to quickly navigate to my blog posts about my vegan handbag collection.

I’m getting into another brand new clean beauty product last week and they are from a brand called Skylar. Since I got 6 bottles of clean, cruelty-free and vegan perfumes to try, I am so super in love with them.
Skylar is creating a new world of fragrancies by using clean, conscious ingredients to craft beautiful, innovative and hypoallergenic scents for yourself and your home. They promise that you will never find suspicious ingredients like Parabens, Sulfates, Phthalates, Allergens, Animal-derived Ingredients and Synthetic Dyes in their 6-Free Scents.
So in today’s post, I will be talking a little bit about each of the scents I have.
Let’s talk about my first impressions after I smelt each of the perfumes, all I had in my mind was CLEAN! All of these scents are so light, soft and clean. I can just feel that they won’t harm your body.
With the scents being very light, you can layer them together to create your own perfect scent or to match it with your mood of the day. This is one of the fun things I like about these perfumes.
I have to let you know first that I’m still using my normal perfumes but after discovering this brand, I’m going to try to cut back on all of my usual and give Skylar‘s perfume an everyday go-to.
If you are interested in learning more about them or want to get some samples to try yourself, you can stop by their website at skylar.com and can get a 10% discount by using my code “GOOODVIBES10” at check out.
Now I want to give you a quick review on each scent.
What I feel about this scent: Very charming scent! It’s perfect for an outdoor party event.
Ingredients: organic sugar cane alcohol, distilled water, galbanum, benzoin tree, cedarwood, parfum (Skylar’s own fragrance blend with natural and essential oils).
I hope this post is giving you some motivation to get to try Skylar‘s perfumes and take your clean and cruelty-free journey to the next level. Don’t forget that you can layer each perfume to find your perfect scent that will empower your soul and body. And you can get a 10% discount by using my code “GOOODVIBES10” at check out.

Adding 3 new New Cruelty Free & Vegan Skincare products from Go To Skincare to my clean beauty collection so I wanted to share my first impression and what I like about them with you.
Since I started using cruelty free vegan skincare products I am very pleased with how my skin has changed in terms of no breakouts and more even skin tone without applying any harsh chemical ingredients on my skin.
I’ve received these 3 products from Go-To Skincare, complimentary to share my thoughts on Instagram, cleanser, face oil and lip balm. Instead of sharing only on Instagram, I decided to post them here as well to give you a more in-depth opinion on each of the products.
Before we get right into it, if you haven’t already enter to win a $800 Sephora Gift Card, feel free to enter at the end of this post!
Now, let’s talk about Go To Skincare. First off I really love their overall brand look and feel. It’s so fun, fresh and clean. All of their packagings are so cute as well and that was the first reason that attracted me to wanting to try their products.
I’m going to talk about the cleanser first, then face oil and lastly lip balm. If you’re ready, let’s get right into it.
This Properly Clean cleanser is a gentle mousse cleanser. It’s gentle enough for sensitive or blemish-prone skin, nourishing enough for dry skin, and balanced enough for oily skin. It is vegan, cruelty-free, and formulated without gluten, PEGs, GMOs, mineral oils, petrolatum, and synthetic colors. Good for all skin types.
What I like about this cleanser is that it won’t dry out my skin. I love the lightweight and soft texture of the mousse. The scent is so fresh. I first thought it would have a fruity scent because of it’s package. But the scent reminded me of green juice with a hint of herbs. It’s a good fresh smell. This cleanser rinses of very easily and after using this cleanser, right away my skin feels so soft and hydrated.
Talking about face oils (again!), this Face Hero face oil has to be the 10th one that I tried in the past month. This oil features 10 potent, purposefully selected plant and nut oils, Face Hero boasts a bucket load of essential fatty acids, vitamins and antioxidants, as well as anti-inflammatory properties. It claims to help hydrate, revive, brighten and insure your face against fine lines, dark spots, dryness and aging inflammation.
My first impression of this oil are that it’s very rich and condense. I was hesitant to try at first because I thought that it would stay on my face and won’t absorb into my skin like other face oils I’ve tried. But I was wrong. Even though it’s a very rich and condense oil, it still absorbs well.
What I like about this face oil is that it leaves my skin hydrated all day and night. As I mentioned earlier that it’s super rich and a little slow to absorbing but it dose its job to moisten deep into your skin. To help speed up the absorption process, I recommend using the face roller like this one to help after applying the oil. One last thing I love is that this oil also adds a healthy glow to my skin.
The Lips! A Super Balm lip balm is a lot different than other lip balms on the market. It’s formulated with ultra medical grade lanolin, nourishing apricot kernel, avocado, almond, evening primrose, vitamin E and jojoba oils, as well as beeswax and soothing calendula and shea butter. All the good stuff!
When I first tried it, I felt like I’m putting Vaseline on but with light fruity scents which I really like.
What I like about this lip balm is that it really keeps my lips super hydrated and I don’t need to keep applying the lip balm on several times a day. Well, I sometimes use it twice if I’m eating or talking too much! 🙂 I love using it at night, it lasts all night and leaves my lips soft and hydrated when I wake up. Another thing I like about this lip balm is that I can use it as a gloss over my tint lipstick. It gives a very pretty shine.
