Influenster Holiday VoxBox

Influenster Holiday VoxBox

Not Pictured: NYC Lipshine Lipgloss, Softsoap Coconut Scrub & Montagne Jeunesse Strawberry Souffle Mask

The fine people of Influenster were generous enough to send a VoxBox to me. 
Whats a VoxBox you ask? Well its a box full of random goodies from new or current brands! It is sent to a select amount of people for reviewing purposes. My box contained the following goodies:

1. XOut Wash In Treatment
My favorite product from the entire box, this foaming face wash's main ingredient is Benzoyl Peroxide. My face was felt so clean after without feeling tight or dry. It has an easy to dispense pump. I've been using it for a little  over a week with my Clarisonic & my skin feels wonderful! Its a wash, mask & spot treatment. A 3-in-1 for only $19.95? I may purchase.

2. imPRESS Press-On Manicure
Shade: Over the Moon
I had not used press on nails since I was a little girl so when I saw these in my box my inner child giggled happily! You fit their nail sizes to best match your nail size, wipe your nails with a prep pad (alcohol wipe), pull the film on the inside on the nail & press for about 30 seconds. Voila! Manicure done! I love the length! Just a little bit of length over the nail, looks very natural. If you love nail design but don't have the time to do your own then these are perfect for you. Available in 36 different shades & less than $10!

3.NYC LipShine Lip Gloss
Shade: Nude York City
STEAL ALERT! Amazing smelling & non-sticky lip gloss for only $3!
I do hope the other shades are more pigmented, I got the nude shade but I'm not complaining. I will definitely purchase! 

4. SoftSoap Coconut Scrub Soap
Heaven in a bar? YES! Smells amazing, my skin feels amazing afterwards. Those Dove commercials that try to say bar soap is bad, obviously haven't tried these... they would be SO jealous. I've used Dove bar soap in the past and Softsoap out does them. It creates such a nice luxurious lather & gently exfoliates. Did I mention it smells amazing?! I can't wait to purchase the juicy mango bar!! 

Flavor: Chocolate... something. I forgot :)
YUMMAY!!! I've always loved Larabars, they're a great snack. If you're having one of those "I'm hungry but not hungry enough to eat a full meal" moments then I highly recommend these. I love how filling they are. 

6. Montagne Jeunesse Strawberry Souffle Mask 
It smelled like a strawberry milkshake, the mask had no significant effect on my skin after use. I don't think it suited my skin type. I am looking forward to purchasing the dead sea mud mask. I did not like the packaging, it made a messier application for me by having to squeeze it out.

I also recieved a pack of Mentos Gum in Mint. I really can't tolerate strong minty flavors or scents. My boyfriend on the other hand LOVES mint! I decided to have him test the gum out for me and he absolutely loved every piece! I also really enjoyed his constant fresh breath so thanks Mentos! :)

CoverGirl LipPerfection Lipcolor

I always swooore I would never wear lipstick. I used to dread wearing red lipstick for dance performances, it was always so drying & feathered like crazy. During one of my monthly magazine binges I saw several ads for CoverGirl's new LipPerfection Lipstick & was immediately intrigued. The ad stated that every lipstick contained a "silk renewal complex" which retains moisture in your lips, ergo, no dried up lips. CoverGirl also states that your lips will feel smooth & softer after just 7 days of using LipPerfection. So, I put them to the test.. I picked up 2 in "Hot' which is a classic red and "Spellbound" which is a hot pink fuschia with purple. It took less than 7 days for me to fall in LOVE!!! The LipPerfection's are creamy, very pigmented, long lasting & come in a wide color range. I recommend using a lip brush or a small shader brush to apply the product, applying the actual lipstick itself all over your lips may cause an overload of color. If you are a lipstick skeptic like I was I highly recommend you give these a try!! 

Price: $6
Where to Buy: ULTA, Target, Walgreens, CVS

Evolution of Smooth Lip Balm

When I first pulled this out of my purse & started rubbing it on my lips, my co-workers gave me the weirdest stare. I have to admit, when I laid eyes on this at Target I had no clue what it was. Who would dare go against the traditional stick form of lip balm??!! The geniuses at eos (Evolution of Smooth), that's who!! When I first put this on my lips I began to hear angels sing! I am in love with this stuff! It is so moisturizing, smells amazing (I have the summer fruit flavor) & instantly heals my chapped lips. I love that it does not have the sting or burn that some balms give when you have really chapped lips. I also enjoy the taste! Whaaaaat?! Yes, the taste. Let's be honest, whatever goes ON your mouth, goes IN your mouth eventually. The eos lip balm spheres are also 95% organic (USDA Certified) & 100% natural. Available in 5 fruity & 1 minty flavor. eos products are available at ULTA, Target, CVS, Walgreens or you can also shop their online store.  

The Beginning....

I recently confessed that I may be a Beauty Product Hoarder & from there an idea was born!! A family member asked me to share some of my favorite products & that is what I'm here to do!! I will be bringing to my blog all things favorite of mine but my main focus will be beauty. I will be reviewing & sharing everything from drugstore to department store beauty, fragrance & cosmetics and other random things! I will also keep you informed on sales, because who doesn't love a sale? Did I also mention I have a moderate case of extreme beauty couponing? I will let you know when to have your scissors at the ready!! I'm so excited to share my love of amazing things with you all. Stay tuned!
