With all of the hustle and bustle of the holiday season behind us (for another 11 months anyhow),  I finally have time to turn my attention towards some product reviews. During the holidays, I received the Frosty VoxBox compliments of Influenster.  It is full of nice, new things that they sent me to try for free!

I just received a Surf’s Up Vox Box courtesy of Influenster with more fun, new products to try out!

This time they sent me a sample of First Aid Shot Therapy which is a liquid pain reliever that you drink.  I had never even heard of this until I received it but I put it in the fridge to chill it so that it was ready for the next time I got a headache. (note:  it is Summer break and the kids are home for three months * a headache is inevitable).

Sure enough, yesterday I was ready to try the “shot”.  Here is what I thought:

  • the flavor I got was “Berry” and it tastes pretty good with no “medicine” taste to it
  • the liquid is clear which I thought was suprising * I thought it would be pink or purple or red
  • it worked well and quicker than I thought (the product does claim to work 5 times faster than aspirin)
  • overall I would give it two thumbs up!

I just checked on Amazon and it seems like there are two flavors available:  Berry and Peppermint.  I would love to see them come out with some other flavors.  I am not sure I would buy more of this anytime soon because it retails for about $2.50 a bottle which seems high to me (remember, I buy my ibuprofen at the Dollar Tree and a bottle of that treats 10 headaches or so for $1).

** I received this item compliments of Influenster for testing and review purposes

It seems as if I am on a roll with the Influenster Vox Boxes. I love getting these boxes full of complimentary new items for me to try out and review!  Free goodies are always fun!  So, last week I got the TLC Vox Box and here is what was inside:

  • Neosporin Neo to Go * very cool!  This is a first aid antiseptic spray which also has pain reliever in it.  This will be great to throw in the tote bag for the pool and beach!
  • A coupon for a FREE container of Breyers Gelato Indulgences * I have wanted to try this cool treat from the moment I saw them in a commercial.  Yum!
  • Ivory Bar Soap * I have used Ivory soap since I was 18.  It is the only soap I use on my face and am excited to see it making a comeback!
  • AVON Anew Reversalist Express Wrinkle Smoother * I confess!  When I opened this box, this was the first product I checked out!  This stuff is great and works like a real life photo filter 😉
  • Puffs to Go * what’s not to love about Puffs?  Always gotta have tissues in my purse for the kiddos!
  • Shell Fuel Rewards Network Card * I am super excited about trying this card out to see how well it helps me save on gas costs.  Fingers crossed!

Another product I received  compliments of the  the Spring 2014 Influenster Vox Box was Playtex Sport Fresh Balance tampons.  The nice thing about these tampons is that there is not a flowery scent.  Instead they have used  a fresh, citrus type scent that is much more pleasant!

These tampons live up to the Playtex name and do a good job of keeping everything where it is supposed to be with no surprises!  This product is a great choice for those women with active lifestyles  who don’t want to have to worry about leakage when they least want accidents to happen.

So, you know from my previous post that I recently received a set of Kiss Everlasting French Manicure nails compliments of Influenster.  Tonight I tried them on and I must say they are NICE !  Not only do they look clean and fresh but they are very classy looking!  One of the features that I really like is the sizing numbers that they have on the tabs.  That makes it super easy to get the right size on the right nail each time!

If you are looking for an easy, affordable way to give yourself a french manicure without an expensive and time consuming trip to the nail salon, Kiss Everlasting French Manicure is definitely worth a try!

    • Rimmel London Scandaleyes Retro Glam Mascara (retail $5.99) * This stuff is AWESOME!  It really lives up to it’s name!  It thickens lashes and makes them lush and gorgeous and it doesn’t flake off! * @RimmelLondonUS / #Retroglam

 

    • Kiss Everlasting French Nails (retail $6.49) * I can’t wait to try these out (if Shelby doesn’t get hold of them first!)  Nothing looks better and more polished than a gorgeous, well kept French manicure *  @KissProducts / #EverlastingFrench

    • NIVEA Skin Firming Hydration Lotion (retail $2.49 for 2.5 oz) * what can I say about this?  Should be interesting to see if it helps all that cellulite I have on my thighs.  Would be nice if it really works! * @NiveaUSA / #NIVEASkinFirming

In my previous post I wrote about the great new goodies I got in my complimentary Influenster JollyVoxBox.  One of the items I received was the NYC HD Color Trio eyeshadow and I got the chance to try it out last night before I went out to dinner.

The eyeshadow kit is very simple to use to create a smoky eye effect.  You use the lightest color on the area between your eyelid and your brow.  Then you put the medium color on your eyelid. You finish up by putting the darkest color in your eyelid crease and along your upper eyelash line to create the smoky effect. Blend the colors to your liking until they look the way you want it to.

The color set that I received was #781 (Long Beach Sands).  I really like that the color set was a nice neutral that looks nice in the daytime but can also be applied heavier for an evening look.  There are also other NYC HD Color Trio eyeshadow sets that achieve a more dramatic look.

The New York Color website has tips on how achieve different smokey eye looks and you can check them out here:  NYC New York Color Smokey Eye Tips

So about a week ago I got an Influenster VoxBox full of free goodies for me to try (hint: if you are interested in becoming an Influenster member for FREE, click on my Influenster Member box on the right side of this page)!  The box had complimentary samples of belVita #SoftBaked Breakfast Biscuits (for breakfast on the go) , #PONDSBB cream makeup (which is awesome and affordable!), and Annie’s Homegrown microwaveable Mac & Cheese #RealCheese (YUM!).  There were also some Dr. Scholl’s® For Her Comfort Insoles in the box and I figured I would try them out.  They are AWESOME!  Let me count the reasons why:

  1. They make uncomfortable shoes feel SO much better
  2. They help my feet by giving them extra support
  3. The insoles can be put in any pair of shoes you are wearing that day; use them in high heels one day and flats the next
  4. There is no sticky messy residue left in your shoes from these insoles
  5. Easy to use!
  6. Affordable!  You can usually find them for under $10 (I got mine free from Influenster)
  7. Sometimes there are coupons floating around for these which makes them MORE affordable!

If you are looking for a shoe insert that is easy to use, can be use in multiple shoes, and will make your feet feel great then you should really do yourself a favor and try these out!
