Luxe VoxBox Review!!!

20171110_134914.pngHappy Friday everyone! I hope everyone has had a great week and that you have something fun or relaxing planned for this weekend. I’m grateful to be enjoying a 4 day weekend this weekend. So, let’s get right into it! I received the Luxe VoxBox from Influenster for free to test and review. This by far has been the best box I have ever received from Influenster! It came with the following products: Aquis Lisse Luxe Hair Drying Towel, Amika Nourishing Mask, Amika Un.Done Texture Spray, Dr. Brandt Needles No More NO MORE BAGGAGE Eye De-Puffing Gel and Grande Lips Hydrating Lip Plumper in Clear Gloss.

Aquis Lisse Luxe Hair Drying Towel

First of all, I could tell that this towel was different than other hair towels that I’ve used before because it has a different texture to it. You could almost describe it as a springy texture. It doesn’t feel like regular old cotton because it isn’t. It’s easy to use! I just wrapped my hair up in it as soon as I got out of the shower, got ready, put my makeup on, then I took my hair down from the towel. I noticed right away that my hair had more volume to it after I took the towel off and it just looked healthier. It also dried my hair significantly faster than it normally would if I was just using a regular towel. I’m definitely a fan of this product and I highly recommend it! This towel is part of my daily routine from here on out now.

Amika Nourishing Mask & Un.Done Texture Spray

I had my own mini spa day at home with Amika! Their Nourishing Masks works amazingly well! First of all, the texture is nice and thick which usually tells me that it’s good quality. I confirmed it’s quality as soon as I applied it to my hair! The mask absorbed into my hair nicely and easily detangled it. It smells awesome too! After I got out of the shower and let my hair air dry, I could feel and see how soft it was. This is definitely a mask that I’m going to purchase in the future!
I then applied my Un.Done Texture Spray to my roots and all over the rest of my hair. It gave my hair more body, bounce and volume. Unlike other styling sprays I’ve used before, this did not make my hair feel hard. You wouldn’t even know I was wearing anything in my hair! This also smells really nice! It doesn’t have a chemical or strong smell to it. It’s very light. It’s meant to absorb dirt and oil as well as style your hair. I love that it’s basically a dry shampoo and a styling spray all in one without the white powder residue.

Overall I’m super pleased with these products and how my hair turned out. I can definitely say that I’m an Amika fan now! ♡♡♡♡

Dr. Brandt Needles No More NO MORE BAGGAGE Eye De-puffing Gel

In my photo collage you will see a photo of me before I applied the product, after one application, and after I applied the second layer. I could definitely feel a difference after applying one layer as well as two layers of this product! My skin feels tighter under my eye area which is how I know it’s working. I think if I were to try this in the morning you guys will see more of a difference in the de-puffing since that tends to be the time of day when we are the most puffiest of course. But even so I can tell a difference after applying this in the afternoon. The packaging is really professional and sleek. The tip of the tube is really small which is helpful because you don’t need very much of this product. PRO TIP: make sure you follow their instructions and wait for the product to dry before applying another layer. After applying it under my eye area, I could feel a slight sting but nothing painful. You could tell it was definitely doing something to my under-eye area. And just as a side note, I was born with these dark circles unfortunately so they aren’t from lack of sleep or anything. But hey, Dr. Brandt has their work cut out for them with my dark circles. Lol! And I know this tube is going to last me for quite some time because you don’t need much product at all for one use. This is a product that I will continue to use and consider purchasing in the future. I also love the texture! It’s got a nice thickness to it, but it’s not too thick. It goes on very easy and smoothly.

GrandeLIPS Hydrating Lip Plumper

Holy moly this product  is amazing! In the above photo collage you’ll see the Before photo, After 5 minutes photo, and After 30 Days photo. Look at the difference that it makes! My lips are super plumped and hydrated and I love the feeling of this product on my lips. It’s really easy to use too! There’s a little clicker on the bottom of the applicator and you click it until enough product comes out that you need. Then you apply it to your lips and wallah! I definitely got compliments on how moisturized and full my lips looked. I will definitely continue using this product and consider purchasing it in the future as well. The only downfall is that it has a scent to it that I’m not a fan of but after I apply it to my lips I don’t smell it anymore.

Thank you again Influenster for the opportunity to try out these Luxe products! They have definitely made a positive impact on my beauty routine and I’m happy that I get the opportunity to share these wonderful reviews with you guys.

Have you guys tried any of these products or do you have any questions about them? I’d love to hear from you. Feel free to comment down below.

Until next time,

Stitch Fix Men’s Fashion Show!!!

Stitch-Fix-Men-Personal-Stylist-Box.jpg

Happy Thursday everyone!  I’m at the beginning of my 4 day weekend which means I’m having a great day.  So, a while back I did a post on StichFix for women where I modeled some clothes that I received in my complimentary styling.  Today I am doing a Men’s Fashion Show for you thanks to another complimentary styling from StitchFix and my boyfriend who so kindly decided to model the clothes today. This post contains affiliate links through which I may be compensated, but all opinions are my own

First up, we have The Richard Sueded Jersey Half Zip Pullover by Threads 4 Thought.

20161110_100208This pullover really makes the entire outfit!  It’s not too casual or too dressy. You can wear this hanging out with the guys watching the game or when you want to have a day out with your girl.

Next up, is the Confetti Pullover Hoodie also by Threads 4 Thought.20161110_100615If you look closely, you can see little specs of green and pink which I think make this a unique piece.  I love that casual preppy look and it has pockets, so convenient!

Up next is the Herndon Flannel Shirt by Grayers.

20161110_101114This was a favorite of both of ours because it’s super stylish for fall but it’s also quite thick to keep you warm during those rainy, chilly winter months.

And last but certainly not least is the Essential Wash Long Sleeve Shirt by Hawker Rye paired with the Essential Wash Straight Fit Chino pants also by Hawker Rye.

20161110_101620Going somewhere that you need to dress up but it’s not quite a cocktail event?  Here’s your outfit guys! We were both really impressed with the pants and the shirt is quite stylish as well.

How does StitchFix work?

Let me fill you guys in a little bit on how StitchFix works. You make an account on their site. Then you answer questions in your Style Profile so that your stylist can put together a Fix (which is their way of saying a styling) that you’ll love and then they ship it off to you based on how often you want to receive them.

How often can I get a Fix?

You can set a schedule to receive a Fix every 2-3 weeks, every month, every other month, every 3 months or set your own schedule. You also have the option to cancel your order if something comes up and you need to cancel for whatever reason. The styling fee is $20 which includes shipping to your home as well as shipping costs for any items you want to send back.

You can make your Style Profile as detailed as you want. You can tell them specifics colors and/or prints you want to avoid and all kinds of things! There is even an area where you can write a note to your stylist AND you can provide them with your social media handles so they can get an idea of your style online as well.

Once again, I am very impressed with StitchFix and their ability to pick the perfect style and fit of clothing.  Are you looking to refresh your fall wardrobe or add some staple pieces to it? Click here to check out StitchFix.  Or are you having trouble coming up with a Christmas gift for that special man in your life? StichFix has just what you’re looking for.

Until next time!
