Whew, this month has been so crazy and I've been going non-stop pretty much. I was so excited to be chosen to receive the Holiday Voxbox from Influenster. When I opened my package I was kinda iffy on a few things and excited about most of them. Rather than doing separate posts about everything I'm throwing it all in this one post.
imPRESS PRESS-ON MANICURE BY BROADWAY NAILS
Introducing imPress, the revolutionary way to apply nail polish! Featuring advanced technology, you will get a salon-perfect manicure in seconds - simply peel off, press on, and you're done (no drying time!). imPress comes in 36 colors and patterns, including trendy brights, fun prints, classic darks and animal prints.
What I think: My packaging for this was completely smashed on the side. These are cute and practical for a quick mani on a budget. I have wider and longer nails than these are. I also have a pinky nail that is more rounded and shaped weird because of that finger being slammed in a door when I was younger. SO, these didn't really fit but maybe 1-2 of my nails. I gave them to my sister to try. She hasn't used them yet as she just got them, but they will fit her.
SOFTSOAP COCONUT SCRUB BAR SOAP
Renew your skin with the NEW Softsoap® Coconut Scrub bar soap. Enriched with crushed coconut extract, this bar soap gently exfoliates to renew your skin's surface, while helping retain natural moisture for soft, supple skin. Also comes in two other exotic fragrances: Juice Pomegranate & Mango Infusions and Sweet Honeysuckle & Orange Peel.
What I think: I was thinking I'd receive 1 bar, but shocked when I saw 2. I used this immediately. I own the Softsoap Coconut & Warm Ginger hand soap and absolutely LOVE it. Though I was disappointed when it didn't smell like that. It doesn't really have a tropical smell that I associate with coconut. I'm not really sure how to describe it, but it wasn't what I expected. It does, gently, exfoliate though. AND it makes my skin soft. I will have to go smell the Sweet Honeysuckle & Orange Peel one to see if I like it.
MONTAGNE JEUNESSE FACE MASK
Montagnue Jeunesse's face masks are jam packed with the most delicious natural ingredients and are bursting with luscious juicy fragrances. Influensters will receive one of the following flavors: Strawberry Souffle, Cucumber Peel Off, Passion Peel Off, Dead Sea Mud, Fruit Smoothie.
What I think: I received Passion Peel Off. I usually don't use the Peel Off's as I always have issues actually peeling them off. I've used some of the others that wash off and love them. I've seen these at Wal-Mart and various drug stores. For around $1 they work pretty well.
NEW YORK COLOR LIQUID LIP SHINE
Straight from the city that never sleeps, New York Color's Liquid Lipshine is uptown style at a down-to-earth price. With pure pigments that create a 3-D gloss effect and vitamin E that provides shine and moisture, this product is perfect to keep lips looking and feeling fabulous this season. Comes in 10 shades from neutral nude, to berries & fuchsias.
What I think: I was glad to receive this in Nude York City. It's a wonderful neutral gloss, with an applicator that I've never seen before. It's like the fuzzy stick applicator, but the end is flexible. It adds a subtle hint of color with amazing shine.
MENTOS PURE FRESH GUM
We're sure you know Mentos, but did you know they have a sugarfree gum? hether it's before a holiday party, date or meeting, pop Mentos Pure Fresh Gum for a quick refresh! The crunchy outer shell conceals a green tea extract core that provides an immediate burst of coolness for long-lasting fresh breath. Its unique container keeps gum protected in your purse!
What I think: I'd just had some dental work done when I received this, so I gave it to the SO to use. He chews gum like crazy and I knew he'd give me his honest opinion. It was a little difficult for him to open, but when he popped a piece in I could smell it on the other end of the couch. He was disappointed that the flavor didn't really last long at all, maybe 5-10 minutes, and that it "got small really fast".
Made from only 2-9 ingredients, each LARABAR is a delicious blend of just fruits, nuts and spices. Pure and simple just as nature intended. Larabar comes in 19 delicious flavors.
What I think: These are also gluten free. I don't have that allergy, but I know some that do and this is a perfect snack for them. I received mine in Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough. Literally, the only ingredients are: Cashews, dates, unsweetened chocolate chips, and salt. I was leery of it because I don't really care for dates, but I gave it a go. It doesn't really taste like cookie dough. It's soft and moist. I actually liked it. So much that I may even go purchase more with the coupon that was included.
GARDEN BOTANIKA LASH PRIMER
Take lashes from fine to fabulous. Simply brush on bare lashes, let dry, then apply mascara. Lengthens and thickens lashes; conditions them so they're healthier, too. Small brush simplifies application. Use with our application.
What I think: This was a bonus product. I've seen so many horrible reviews for lash primers before, but figured I'd try it anyway. Let me tell you, I was totally amazed at how much I'm in love with this product. I think this is the best new product I've tried ALL year. This does apply white, and I could see it on the tips of my lashes. I usually use 2 coats and let it dry before I apply my mascara. The first time I noticed the added length and softness it gave my lashes. I wore it Christmas day to my family dinner and my sister asked me what new mascara I was using. She didn't believe I was using my usual stuff(which she doesn't like). She commented that they looked way longer. They almost go to my brows with this primer. I will definitely purchase this when I run out and I want to try some of their other products now.
Overall, I'm extremely happy with the Holiday box. Now I'm wishing I'd tried the Larabar sooner as I'm wanting more than the small bit. What will you go try now?
