#Bloomvoxbox

I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes. This does not affect my opinion of the products or the content of my review.

Influenster is a new to me site. I have been using it for about 3 months, give or take, to find new products from hair care, dog treats to video games (and more!) that fit my budget. It’s nice reading blogs that feature all these amazing products but I’ve found that most of them are out of my price range. Influenster, helps you find THOUSANDS of reviews of products that fit MY budget and easily obtained from a drug store or say, Target or Walmart. AND, you are able to review them based on your experience too! It’s quite fun!

In addition, you also get a chance to test products and receive badges for completing tasks and reviewing the product. I was lucky enough to get the BloomVoxBox.

What’s in the box?

Thoughts

  • Not Your Mother’s® Plump for Joy™ Thicking Hair Lifter

I don’t use many products in my hair, simply because as with makeup, I just like to go all natural. I have very fine hair, which tends to not hold much volume or a style for long (like, hours only). I know shorter, layered styles work best with my hair type but I am growing it out so it’s just lanky looking! Anyway, I was hesitant to think that something like this would work for my hair but OMG was I wrong! I received compliments at work all week while using it. I used it before AND after blowing (different days) and it works great!

  • Cutex Advanced Revival Nail Polish Remover Pads

WHERE HAVE THESE BEEN ALL MY LIFE? These are amazing. I usually do my nails once a week – and actually, dread it for reasons, and my husband hates the smell of nail polish remover (who doesn’t?) and these have NO chemical smell at all. Actually, they smell rather nice!

And yes, one pad removes even dark red nail polish from all 10 nails. I will be buying these for sure!

  • Secret Outlast Xtend deodorant

FullSizeRender (64).1How does one even review deodorant??

I’m actually rather picky, simply because I have sensitive skin, and I’ve liked using Secret in the past. I tested this for two weeks during my workouts, and I love it! It’s not sticky like some deodorant can be and doesn’t have a build up film. You know what I’m talking about? When you look at your underarms after sweating your Ass off and it’s all white and built up?? NASTY. It also doesn’t leave any film on my clothes. So yay!

 

 

  • NUXE Huile Prodigieuse® Multi-Purpose Dry Oil
  • pink flowers

So, not gonna lie, I had NO IDEA how to use this when it came. It says it was a multi-purpose dry oil for body, skin and hair. Since I already trying out the Not Your Mothers for my hair, and just started using a new face cream, I didn’t want to try it on my hair OR face. So, I used it on my nails and hands, just to see if there was a difference.

And there was!

My hands are really soft. It doesn’t leave a heavy oily feel like some oils can, and the scent is rather nice. It does remind me of something my grandma or mom would use, but it fades from being overpowering to light within minutes of application. I will be trying this on my face soon.

I also want to mention that since this was a small bottle without an applicator or spray bottle, it would have been difficult for ME to find a non-messy way to add this to any other product, such as lotion or shampoo.

  • SinfulColors® Kylie Jenner Collection in Teal Midnight

I have a slight obsession with nail polish. I have to keep myself away from the aisle’s at the store so I’m not tempted to buy anymore!

I’ve loved and used SinfulColors® for awhile now, so I was pretty excited when I saw they have a new line out. However, I’m not a huge fan of Glitter finishes for many reasons, but the main one being I like full coverage of my nail, and this one didn’t have that. I suppose you can/do if you use 5 coats (see pic) or you could use it as an overcoat to another color, sure, but I didn’t like the way it looked. I probably wouldn’t buy this one – but it’s pretty all the same!

Sunbelt Bakery Oats & Honey granola bar (not pictured)

These are yummy! I’ve always like Sunbelt Bakery’s granola bars! It’s chewy and sweet and they aren’t wholly bad for you either! LOL
