Q-tips® Precision Tips™

I received this product complimentary through Influenster to test and review.

I was so excited to receive this product in my Vox Box. It may seem ordinary, but these things are super handy. In one single night I used these precision tips for 3 very specific tasks that could have been disastrous without. 

First, I dyed my hair. In turn, I dyed my ears. I used the Q-tips® Precision Tips™ to get the dye out from my outer ear.

Second, I did my makeup, using the Q-tips® Precision Tips™ to fine tune my favorite red lipstick.

Thirdly, I used the Q-tips® Precision Tips™ to remove the tiny flecks of nail polish from my cuticles.

This brand is so well-known, and is so trustworthy, I would think it bizarre if someone didn’t have these in their closet. I definitely recommend these Q-tips® Precision Tips™ to everyone! You will find a use for them every single day.

Luster NOW! Instant Whitening Toothpaste

I received this product complimentary through Influenster to test and review.
 
At first I was skeptical because I have some reconstructive work, and typically experience a lot of sensitivity with whitening products. After reading that it was approved for every day use, I decided I would give it a shot.


The first thing I noticed was that the cap is a little inconvenient. It twists off, and not in one twist. After chasing the cap around the bathroom and nearly smacking my forehead on the sink, I decided that this was a component that I did not appreciate. However, it was the only component that I didn’t like.

The color of the toothpaste threw me for a minute, because it is completely opaque and one solid blue color.
The taste is amazing, not too strong, not too bland.
After brushing, the toothpaste becomes very frothy, proprietary Bluverite® formula immediately leaves you with what appears to be more sparkly teeth.


I have not experienced any sensitivity or problems at all for that matter.
I like this toothpaste a lot and plan to continue using it.

Dr. Scholl’s® For Her Ball of Foot

I received a complimentary pair of these cushions from Influenster to test out and review.

This was probably the one item in my Vox Box that I was most excited about. I have a habit of wearing shoes that are terrible for my feet, and always end up with sore shins, calves, or feet. When I first put these in my shoes, I was thrilled. They have just the right amount of give paired with support. They are reusable, and do not stick to your shoe with any adhesive. They have a webbed rubber bottom that does not slide around in the shoe.

After wearing these in my shoes for a day, when I normally would have felt some pain after a day, there was none.

I even like the look of them. If you put them in wedges or flats, even if you take your shoe off, it’s cute on the inside.

I think the trickiest part of these is trying to find the perfect spot to put them in your shoe, but even that is easy.

DEFINITELY RECOMMEND. And with wedding season, everyone could use a few of these to keep them dancing.

Palmolive Fresh Infusions Dish Liquid

About 2 weeks ago I received a box in the mail from my favorite company, Influenster! They sent me a box full of three big, bright, brand new, complimentary dish liquids. I was immediately excited because the colors are very exciting, and the packaging is very different and new compared to the same old brands I am used to. I immediately opened all of them to see if the smells were just as new and exciting.

My favorite scent was the Lime Basil, because it smelled very strongly of gummy worms! The Lemon Thyme was very very refreshing, and probably the one the smelled closest to a dish soap. The Ginger White Tea smells absolutely fabulous and super super sweet, and I love the smell on my dishes afterwards.

Now the most important part, how well they work! Since I do not have a dishwasher, I spend a LOT of time doing dishes by hand, so it is very important to me that the soap does not dry my hands out, and that I am not left with a gross slimy feeling on my hands. Thankfully, I was left with soft, smooth, fresh smelling hands. I used a simple sponge on all my worst pots and pans, and it took me less time than it would have taken with another brand of soap. I was sold.

I shared the Lemon Thyme scent, because my friend does not typically like very very sweet smells, and the Lemon was a nice balance. She enjoyed it, and thought the packaging was very intriguing as well.

Palmolive Fresh Infusions Dish Liquid

FIRST IMPRESSIONS


As soon as I opened the box that I received complimentary from Influenster, I knew that I was in for a treat. There were 3 large dish soap bottles inside, and the colors themselves excited me. I went through, smelling each one hoping to smell that they were vastly different from the dish soaps I had used before, and I was not disappointed
. My favorite scent was the Lime Basil, because it smelled very strongly of gummy worms! The Lemon Thyme was very very refreshing, and probably the one the smelled closest to a dish soap. The Ginger White Tea smells absolutely fabulous and super super sweet, and I love the smell on my dishes afterwards. The only problem I experienced was I did not close the Lemon Thyme bottle all the way and it spilled all over the other bottles, HOWEVER it was a breeze to clean up which was fantastic.

Bath & Body Works Fall Mini Candle

I received a complimentary candle in the scent of Pumpkin Cupcake through the Influenster Beauty Box VoxBox program. Not only is pumpkin one of my all time favorite scents for fall, but the strength of this scent is amazing, and does not even have to be lit to smell. I love the tiny size, and the price at $3.50 is unbeatable! Also included was a $10 coupon, which I can’t wait to use.

This candle was developed and tested by their “team of Home Fragrance experts, including the world’s best master perfumers”! The candles burn for approximately 15 HOURS, which is astounding for the size, and is probably due to the highest concentration of fragrance oils, an exclusive blend of vegetable wax and lead-free wicks!

Goody Simple Styles Spin Pin

I recently received a VoxBox from Influenster, full of FREE products to try and review. I was not paid to write this review, and the products were all given to me complimentary of Influenster.


I am a big fan of doing my hair in a top bun, and I do utilize it a lot to keep my hair out of the way. Nothing is worse than when I am trying to do this and my hair tie breaks, and I have no idea where the rest of them are hiding. The Spin Pin is a fantastic solution to this. In 3 easy steps, you have a super secure bun that will last all day, without seeing any bands or pins. Then to top it all off, you simply spin the pin the opposite direction to remove. No hair tugging at all.

A big bonus for me was that it really does last all day, especially with my hair which is as thin as it comes! A lot of products just slide further and further out as the day wears on, but the spin pin held!

I love this product, and I keep the pins in a pocket in my purse at all times! The product claims (and I believe) that these 2 spin pins do the work of 20 bobby pins! They are good for neat, sloppy, side, top, or any other bun you can think of. They’re also good for creating your own style. The packaging even has 3 different style ideas included. This product is genius!

Kiss Ever Pro Lashes Starter Kit

I recently received a VoxBox from Influenster, full of FREE products to try and review. I was not paid to write this review, and the products were all given to me complimentary of Influenster.


Let me start out by saying that I almost never use false eyelashes. However, since I received this box so close to Halloween, I thought it would be a great product to incorporate into my costume. But since I don’t have much experience with false lashes, I was worried that I would not be able to figure out how to correctly apply them. However, this starter kit makes everything so simple and dummy proof, that it took no time at all. Some aspects that I found very cool/helpful.

  • 100% human hair. No cheap imitation material here!
  • 24 hour hold, latex free glue that comes in a reusable tube instead of a little pouch that tears open.
  • ODOR FREE, WATERPROOF.
  • Pro Lash Applicator to put the lashes on after glue is applied, keeping your fingertips glue free, and prevents the lashes from bonding to them and coming off your eye when you’re applying them.
  • Simple to remove!

NYC New York Color IndividualEyes Custom Compact

I recently received a VoxBox from Influenster, full of FREE products to try and review. I was not paid to write this review, and the products were all given to me complimentary of Influenster.


I was THRILLED when I saw this compact, because I had actually seen it at the store and wanted to buy it but didn’t have enough time to decide. I received the Dark Shadows compact, which is Limited Edition! This compact comes with everything you need to create the look. A applicator brush, primer base, illuminator, highlighter, all over color, and 2 crease/contour colors. I usually only do smokey eyes so this was right up my alley. It is beyond awesome to have everything you need in one compact. The color payoff is amazing, and each color is brilliant. I LOVELOVELOVE this, and priced at $4.99, I will probably be going out to buy the other colors.

The only downfall that I saw in the design is that any leftover fallout color will settle into the primer/illuminator which is not entirely pleasant, but IS avoidable.

Not Your Mother’s Smooth Moves Frizz Control Hair Cream:
I have pretty processed hair from years of experimenting, leaving my hair a little more frizzy than I appreciate. This hair cream is a dream! It is infused with coconut and silk extracts to leave your hair smelling like coconut, one of my favorite scents for hair, and feeling super smooth and wonderful. I think the packaging is genius, and I just all around love it. I just work this into my hair after a shower, and my hair is left smooth and shiny! Love it!
