I got this Dazzle Voxbox over a month ago, but I’ve been so busy I’m just getting around to writing a review for it.

Upon receiving this box, I noticed it was quite tiny, which usually would mean that it’s one brand sending a couple of their products. However, it turns out the box is a mini version of the assorted product Voxboxes I’m used to.

Let’s get reviewin’!

Gold Bond Ultimate Radiance Renewal: This item was in the Tinsel Voxbox I got a few months ago, and I absolutely LOVE LOVE LOVE it! I take it with me on short business trips and getaways. It smells so good, and it’s great for my dry hands that are seriously wishing winter would end already.

Clairol Professional Jazzing Semi-Permanent & Temporary Hair Color: I received this in the shade Cherry Cola #56, which is the color my grandma used to dye her hair! I have never dyed my hair and don’t intend to in the near future so I’ll be giving this away to someone.

iThrive Keratin Rescue Split End Repair: In March 2018, I took a vow to be nicer to my hair, so I am no longer using any sulfate or alcohol based hair products. This will also be given away. Smells great though.

Overall, I’m so glad I got another Gold Bond Ultimate Radiance Renewal! It was a fave of mine from the last Voxbox, and I’d honestly buy it when it finishes.

Tinsel VoxBox Review

Before I went home for the holidays, I got a lovely Tinsel Voxbox in the mail from Influenster! I wasn’t expecting it to arrive until the new year so it was definitely a pleasant surprise.

The box came with a variety of assorted goodies. Let’s dive in!

Vera Wang Embrace – Green Tea and Pear Blossom: I’ve never owned any Vera Wang fragrances, but this one is a very interesting scent combo. I can definitely smell the pear more than I can smell the green tea, but I don’t see that as a problem, necessarily.

Nautica Blue Sail: I’ve bought the one ounce version of this for my dad as a gift in the past. I like that it’s not an overpowering cologne smell. It’s just enough to smell like you took some time to freshen up.

Eva NYC Freshen Up Dry Shampoo: Dry shampoo doesn’t really work well on my coarse hair, so I’m giving this to my roommate. Hopefully she finds it more useful than I will.

Eva NYC Forget Me Knot Dry Conditioner: See above.

Luscious Pout Maker Lip Contour Crayon (Queen Bee): I was kind of afraid to try this color because it looks very bright and loud, but it turns out that Queen Bee really compliments my skin tone. I also love the fact that it’s a subtle mix or bright red and hot pink. I can see myself wearing this regularly.

Gold Bond Ultimate Radiance Renewal: This is the most soothing cream for the hands and for your nose! It feels and smells amazing. The coconut oil, African shea butter, and cocoa butter mix together to make such a beautifully nourishing cream. I can’t believe they send me a full size tube!

7th Heaven Charcoal Peel-Off Mask: I absolutely love these masks! They’re perfect for a winter night in. I usually put it on right before hopping into the shower so I can take it off while I bathe. So good!

Overall, I love the Pout Maker Lip Contour Crayon in the shade Queen Bee and the Gold Bond Ultimate Radiance Renewal. Both of those items are going to get used a lot this winter.

 

Ivy VoxBox Review

Back again with a new VoxBox!

I was super excited when I opened the Ivy VoxBox I got from Influenster a few weeks ago. I’ve been getting a lot of customized boxes from them the last few times, so this was a pleasant little mix of random products. There was even some candy thrown in!

This VoxBox contained Trolli Sour Brite Crawlers, two ChapStick DUOs (one in berry sorbet shimmer and another in refreshing watermelon + strawberry kiwi), a Nubian Heritage African Black Soap Facial Cleansing Bar Soap, a Gillette Venus Swirl, and 7th Heaven Foot Soak & Lotion. Very exciting.

Let’s get to the review, shall we?

1. Trolli Sour Brite Crawlers. I ate them all in one shot last week and then I felt guilty. They were just so good. The perfect amount of sour, in my opinion.

2. ChapStick DUO, berry sorbet shimmer & refreshing watermelon + strawberry kiwi. Okay, these are the coolest thing ever. I love the refreshing watermelon! You can attach these to other flavors to make the DUO, which I love because you can carry two flavors along in your makeup bag at once. They smell freaking amazeballs and provide a ton of moisture.

I stuck refreshing watermelon and strawberry kiwi together, then opted to put the former on my lips. Tastes DELISH.

3. Nubian Heritage African Black Soap Facial Cleansing Bar Soap. I’ve heard really great things about this brand, so I’m excited to try this face soap when I’m done with my current tube of Olay Facial Foaming Cleanser. Continue reading

e.l.f. VoxBox Review

A few weeks ago I got an e.l.f. VoxBox in the mail, and I just got around to playing with the products inside. I was sent 6 products: a Hydrating Bubble Mask, Lip Exfoliator, Mineral Infused Face Primer, Baked Highlighter and Bronzer in the shade Bronze Glow, and Matte Lip Color in the shade Wine.

As a longtime e.l.f. Cosmetics fan, I was super excited to try all of these along with the makeup I use regularly. Here’s what I thought of all the products:

Hydrating Bubble Mask: I started out with this one to give my face a little bit of oompf, as I haven’t used a mask in a while, moreover, I’d never used a bubble mask. They’re all the rage right now, and rightfully so. My skin feels so nice! It was a bit weird with the bubbles dissolving so quickly as I was reading the instructions on the package but I do like the mask. I’ll definitely try to use this once a week.

Lip Exfoliator: Followed the Hydrating Bubble Mask up with this product. I’ve only ever done homemade lip scrubs made with sugar and honey, so this was very odd to me. I felt like I was putting on lip balm. As with the bubble mask, the result was great but the process was weird. Looks like I won’t be needing to make my own lip scrub for a while!

Mineral Infused Face Primer: Moving on to the stuff that actually stays on my face. I only use primer for my eyeshadow, but I have been meaning to find a nice face primer to use daily. I love that this is a clear primer! It definitely does its job well, in my opinion.

Baked Highlighter and Bronzer, Bronze Glow: I don’t use highlighter or bronzer, so I was debating if I should use it to complete my look for this post. I think the one I was sent is too shiny for my liking. I probably won’t use it ever again.

Matte Lip Color, Wine: LOVE THIS! It’s the perfect shade for a subtle red lip stain. I’m definitely buying another once this one finishes. Also, how cool is the sharpener on this?!

Overall, I think I’ve fallen hard for the Primer and the Matte Lip Color. Can’t wait to put them on again for work tomorrow!

 

Influenster #SpiceVoxBox Review

*I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes.

I got sent another Voxbox by Influenster this month, and I’m finally getting the chance to review the items I received!

The box contained Botanics Organic Hydrating Day Cream, Foot Petals Killer Kushionz, Sinful Colors nail polish in the shade Mirror Mirror, Sinful Shine top coat, Good Health Veggie Stix, SoapBox Shampoo & Conditioner, two Yogi Teas in the flavors Vanilla Spice and Sweet Tangerine, and Not Your Mother’s Whip It Up Cream Styling Mousse.

My mother has already claimed ownership of the Soapbox Shampoo & Conditioner and the Botanics Organic Hydrating Day Cream because I don’t plan on using them.

And now for the review:

1. Botanics Organic Hydrating Day Cream. I love the way this smells. It’s got rose hip, jojoba oil and cocoa butter in it, and the rose hip makes the whole thing smell like pure rose extract. I’m not complaining. It’s lovely. But I already wear a fade cream for my spots so as I said before my mom is keeping it.

2. Foot Petals Killer Kushionz. So I was kind of bummed that I didn’t get the Give ’em the Boot Foot Petals cushion because it’s winter now and I wanted to wear them with my boots but I guess I’ll just stick them in my pumps and wait to wear them to a special occasion or something. They feel quite cushiony, so I expect them to work well in terms of foot comfort.

3. Sinful Colors Mirror Mirror, and Sinful Shine top coat. Okay, so you all probably already know how much I love Sinful Colors nail polish, and they sent me the top coat for this color as well so I was tres happy. Mirror Mirror kind of looks like a crime scene happened on my nails though. It’s an interesting look, and the top coat shine is superb!

4. Good Health Veggie Sticks. I’ve been obsessed with Good Health’s veggie snacks since the winter of last year. I was so upset when I opened the Spice Voxbox to find that the bag had popped open 😦 It was only a few sticks that fell out though, so I can still enjoy the rest of the bag.

5. SoapBox Shampoo & Conditioner. This shampoo and conditioner comes in the scent coconut and shea butter―two scents I absolutely adore. I don’t think I’ll be switching from my Herbal Essences shampoo and conditioner any time soon though, but I do admire that these are sulfur free. My mom is going to have a field day with these.

6. Yogi Tea, Vanilla Spice and Sweet Tangerine. I’ve tried samples of Yogi Tea in the past and I didn’t like them. The flavors I had before were Roasted Dandelion Spice and Raspberry Ginger, so there’s hope that the new flavors I received in this box taste better.

7. Not Your Mother’s Whip It Up Cream Styling Mousse. I might be dreaming but I think this smells like cake icing and whipped cream. Should I be concerned?

My faves in this box are definitely the Sinful Colors nail polish and the Good Health Veggie Sticks. And you already know my mother’s faves…and she’s dancing off to her room with them…so now it’s time to go enjoy this Spice Voxbox!
