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,

Origins GinZing VoxBox Review

20170822_170529Happy Tuesday everyone! I’m really excited to tell you about these skincare products that I received complimentary from Influenster. I was so pumped when I found out that I was getting the Origins GinZing VoxBox! I’ve used Origins products in the past and I’ve also heard a lot of great things about this brand. So lets get on into it and I’ll tell you about my experience with these wonderful products!

20170822_164539The Origins GinZing Refreshing Scrub Cleanser is so awesome! It smells delicious! It has a nice citrus scent which definitely awakened my senses every morning while I would be washing my face. I also love the grains that smooth out and refresh my skin. This cleanser basically gives my skin a fresh, clean slate every day to start over with. I used this in the evening also. It was very gentle on my skin and it did a great job of making my skin feel clean and fresh.

20170822_164630The Origins GinZing Energy-Boosting Gel Moisturizer was also very pleasant to use every morning and night. It has a light citrus scent to it. A little goes a long way which is fantastic because that means this will definitely last me a long time and you definitely get your money’s worth with this moisturizer. It  did a great job of hydrating my skin and the jar made it really easy to just tap my fingertip into the product and apply it to my face and neck.

20170822_164645Last but certainly not least is the Origins GinZing Eye Cream. This doesn’t have a citrus scent to it like the other two products, but the scent is not bad. It has a nice consistency and it’s a pearly pink color. I enjoyed applying this under my eyes at nighttime (personal preference to use it in the nighttime only since my eyeliner tends to run sometimes during the day) and my under-eyes definitely felt hydrated after using this.

Overall I LOVE this Origins GinZing skincare set! I definitely plan to continue using these products and I’m considering adding more Origins products to my beauty regimen in the future.

I received these products free for testing and review purposes from Influenster and all opinions are my own.

ChapStick 100% Natural Lip Butter Review

img_20161003_222920

Happy Tuesday everyone!  So tonight I am reviewing ChapStick 100% Natural Lip Butter that I received in my VoxBox.  I got 3 different kinds from Influenster.

20161018_200004

Although it’s hard to tell what kind this featured one is, it’s my favorite one of the 3; Sweet Papaya.  As you can see, ChapStick 100% Natural Lip Butters make my lips looks really smooth and soft.  They go on smoothly and do a great job of moisturizing my lips.

The Sweet Papaya one has a really nice and natural fruity scent.  I think it’s unique compared to other typical fruity scents you’ll find in other lip balms.

My second favorite is Green Tea Mint. Before opening it, I worried that it would have a strong green tea scent to it, but it has more of a muted mint scent.  I would say Green Tea Mint is perfect for people who aren’t huge mint fans because it has just the right amount of mint.

Last but not least is Pink Grapefruit. I like grapefruit as a fruit itself, but I wasn’t as big of a fan of having it on my lips, so I gave it away to my boyfriend.

20161018_195448

Overall, I am definitely a fan of these lip butters.  I have to say that I think these go on more smoothly than regular lip balm.

I recommend checking these out!  Go here to get more info on these lip butters and you can also check out all of the other ChapStick products.  You can find Green Tea Mint and Pink Grapefruit are shopchapstick.com, CVS and Walgreens and you can find Sweet Papaya exclusively at Walgreens.

Have you tried these before?  Feel free to comment below, would love to hear from you!  Any questions, please let me know.

Hormel Shredded Chicken Taco Meat Review

So I received a full value coupon for Hormel Taco Meat in my Cheers VoxBox from Influenster recently.  Today I decided to go to the store and pick up the shredded chicken package for Taco Night; they have 4 options: ground beef, shredded pork, shredded chicken and and shredded beef.

It was really simple to prepare:

-Heat 1 teaspoon of oil in a large non-stick skillet.

-Remove chicken from package.

-Heat, covered over medium heat, stirring once halfway through heating, about 3-4 minutes.

-Serve with tortillas and favorite toppings.

It also had the option of microwave instructions.

I served the Hormel Shredded Chicken on tortillas with tomatoes, onions, cilantro, shredded cheese, sour cream and guacamole salsa.  It was quite tasty and super easy and quick to make.  Even after reading the ingredients, the only one that stood out to me was dextrose which is a form of sugar.  I would definitely recommend this as an easy meal for singles, couples, families or anyone in between.

When I went on Hormel.com, I found several recipes that you can put together using Hormel Taco Meats.  Here is the link:  http://hormel.com/Brands/Hormel-Taco-Meats.aspx  I actually made myself a Torta (not pictured) which was delicious as well.
