Influenster – Playa VoxBox Review 

Look At All these Goodies 🔥
 
Hey Guys it’s been a while and I do apologize for not posting much. Having two kids one who is 6months and the other going to be 4 soon, Life gets hectic but today I have this wonderful box to review from Influenster. If you have never heard of them you have to sign up, Like RIGHT NOW! This website is awesome for all types of beauty and lifestyle bloggers like myself.

I got all these wonderful items to review for free for testing purposes.


 Here I have the Eva NYC brand which goes for $17.00 for a box of 10. These hair wipes are great for on the go. The have a Serum infused into them giving you added shine and refreshing your hair with it clean scent. This add shines and glosses your hair taming frizz and fly aways. It also has some key ingredients which help restore your hairs natural oils and nourishment. 

  • Argan oil- nourishes and protects with antioxidants, fatty acids and Vitamins A & E  
  • Vitamin c- enhances shine
  •  Omegas 3, 6, 7, 9 –nourish and repair 

I love how this wipe is a great size not to big or small so it will be able to work with any length of hair. 

Don’t mind my overly tired face.

Next up is this great Cream from Suave. This cream here has a light scent. Comes in a 10oz bottle and only costs $5.18 for the 18 oz which is a bargain for the amount of cream you are getting. This cream has Vitamin E which is known to make your skin look noticeably healthier and more radiant. Being aslo a Dermatologist tested formula it’s enriched with a combination of the anti-oxidants vitamin E and A, along with Pro-vitamin B-5, restores moisture to parched skin. The rich emollient base helps make dullness disappear and helps restore the soft, smooth feel of your skin with 24 hour of continuous moisturizatiom. 


Next up is the Colgate Radiant Optic White Toothpaste. Coming in at only .75oz this small yet powerful package is great for travel or your purse. It has teeth whitening properties like hydrogen peroxide to help clean and whiten your teeth. It’s also enamel safe for daily use. I love a toothpaste that not only cleans your mouth out well but also give’s you the added benefits of a teeth whitener. With teeth whitener’s being so expensive or not working the best this toothpaste gets the job done. You can buy this at your local pharmacy or grocery store. For a 3oz tube your only paying $6.99. 

Last but not least is this Franks RedHot Sauce. This sauce goes for $2.68 at Walmart depending on the size. I got a 12fl oz. This is a decent size for people who love using it on any types of foods or just use a lot of hot sauce. Just a dash and you’ll smell and taste the cayenne pepper flavor. It has enough spiciness without tasting too powerful. This is good for spicy food lovers . This is my first time actually having this type of hot sauce and I loved it. I added it to my rice bowl and it was really tasty. Franks RedHot Suaces come in a variety of flavors from original to super hot🔥. If your a spicy hot sauce lover like myself this one is a must try. Add it tacos or rice bowls or even BBQ wings.

I also got two coupons to claim Two Free Dollop Of Daisy Sour cream Squeeze Tubes,Which I will be doing tomorrow. This is a very tasty and yummy sour cream that I love adding to my taco salads and my tacos. These are a 14oz Tube. These go for about  $3 at your local grocery store. You can add them to chicken or even quesadillas. If you have never tried this I’d recommend this for a additional topping to any meal.

Influenster was also nice enough to add another coupon for $2 off any Eva NYC product. This I will be using when the time is right. 

I hope you guys enjoyed this review. Let me know what you guys think below.. Have you tired any of these great products and food samples ?

Jeju Canola Honey Water Balm Cream Review 

Hello beauty’s,

Today I’m trying out this product. It’s a Canola Honey Water Balm Cream. This cream immerses your skin moisturizing it and it also has anti-wrinkle properties. This cream has instant refreshing droplets that can be felt as the cream is applied. When I applied this cream it felt like a buttery consistency. It sounds weird but it also felt like it as well. When looking for a good cream for my face especially ones with honey infused into it, I look for a good smell which this has. It’s has a off white color to it and feels oily when spread between your palms.  It leaves a pleasant scent on ur face.  After a few minutes being left on I did not have any reaction to the cream. Which is great. After having it on and it drying on my skin I did not like how it left my face feeling sticky. Overall  the product is not bad if there was a way to get the stickiness taken off. I also loved how this product came with its own mini spatula for added amount desired. Some products are wasted quicker because we use to much and wash the rest off our hands. I would give this product a 6/10. The absorption,scent and consistency of the product was great except for the after feel.  


**I got this product free for complimentary testing purposes** This is not a sponsored post**

Skin Actives Vitamin A Serum Review 


Hey Beauty’s ,

Today I’m reviewing the Skin Actives Vitamin A Serum that I received from 0.8Liter. This serum rejuvenates the skin while also smoothing out wrinkles and is also cruelty free which I love. When I tried this out I loved that it had a pump which helps control how much product you are using. This serum is only to be used at night and not during the day as it causes sunburns to your skin. That I did not like because I love to layer my skin with Vitamin infused creams and serums. The serum doesn’t smell the best but it is tolerable. Overall this product gets a 7/10. 

Did you know that Vitamin A is required for the proper development and functioning of our eyes, skin, immune system, and many other parts of our bodies. Now that’s amazing. 

*this product was sent to me for Freeform  testing purposes** this is not a sponsored post**

ALEX & ANI Bracelet Review 


Hey Beauty’s,

Today’s post is on this beautiful bracelet I won in a giveaway a week ago from the lovely @CaptionDaFashN on Snapchat. This beautiful Celtic Knot Bracelet is from the Alex and Ani Company. Here’s a bit about the company from there site and maker of the company. As you can see below this company is very passionate about the things they make.

We create meaningful, eco-conscious jewelry and accessories to positively empower and connect humanity. We share a passion for the wellbeing of our planet, our communities, and our individual paths. ALEX AND ANI products are proudly designed and crafted in America and made with love.

Carolyn Rafaelian-

An innovative thinker, spiritual enthusiast, and person of integrity, Carolyn Rafaelian is undeniably making her mark. As the Founder, Chief Executive Officer and Chief Creative Officer of ALEX AND ANI, Rafaelian has harnessed her strong business sense and divine artistic vision to grow a company that she refers to as a way of life. Named Ernst & Young’s New England Entrepreneur of the Year and SBA RI Small Business Person of the Year in 2012, Rafaelian is a force of positive energy building a company with a conscience. A guiding light and perpetual inspiration, Rafaelian is living proof that anything is possible with hard work and a little positive energy.

What Is Positive Energy?

ALEX AND ANI products are infused with positive energy. Ancients referred to this precious energy as “chi” and “prana,” whereas modern science refers to it as vital force. It is the natural energy that supports life.

How Does ALEX AND ANI Utilize The Power Of Positive Energy?
We embrace the power of positive energy as our core company belief. Each product is infused with positive energy in three important ways. First, the products themselves are manufactured (and infused) with positive intention in carefully selected American factories. Second, the symbols featured in our designs carry their own energy and are accompanied by thoughtfully crafted and meticulously researched meaning. Last, each design is positively intended to empower the wearer and reflect the unique qualities of the individual. Some pieces carry sentimental meaning; others are talismans of protection, power, or intention. The beauty of each collection is that you are the designer. Mixing symbolic pieces with your own alchemy makes ALEX AND ANI completely and uniquely yours.

Corporate Consciousness-

ALEX AND ANI embraces a unique business model that incorporates corporate consciousness in all directives. The wellbeing of the environment, the health of local and national economies, and the empowerment of customers are taken into account with every decision made.
We design products that will have a positive impact on the world. All items are manufactured in America. The materials utilized are sustainable and derived from eco-conscious processes. Internally, all employees are highly valued at ALEX AND ANI. The team is the heart of the company. In-house coaching, creative support, and innovative courses are offered to the corporate family to encourage individual growth and wellbeing for a balanced life.
We believe in the power of gratitude and giving. Through CHARITY BY DESIGN and other outreach initiatives, we channel our resources into the efforts of organizations that work to improve others’ quality of life. Alex and Ani Institute is the vehicle that makes it possible to share these principles, technologies, and ideas that have helped us build our company. We look forward to sharing the secrets of our success and energy to help others attain their goals.

When I entered in this giveaway I had no idea I’d even win. This is the first time I’ve Won anything. So when Julie @CaptionDaFashN messaged me saying ” I WON” I was very excited, not only because I won but because I never had a bracelet from AlEX & ANI so I was very excited to finally have one. Julie was so sweet enough to do this giveaway let alone give all her Snapchat followers a hint on what this prize would be. When I answered and got the answer correct I automatically started looking into what the company was about and what type of bracelets they had. Julie asked for my email and full name and sent me a E-giftcard that night  through my email address. I thanked her a million times. You don’t get to come across someone so generous enough to do such a lovely give away and with a company like there’s I already knew in my mind what kind of bracelet I wanted. 

This is the bracelet I chose and it’s meaning.

Celtic knot Charm Bracelet:

Constructed with intricately woven pieces, the Celtic Knot is a symbol of infinity, as it has no beginning or end. A mystical icon with ancient roots, this knot symbolizes the resilience, flexibility, and timelessness of the human spirit. Embrace the fearless energy of the Celtic Knot Charm as a powerful reminder that our paths are purposefully entwined.

I honestly believe everyone crosses a path in our lives for a reason, for a purpose. I love the design and details of the Celtic Knot. It’s very comfortable on my wrist and the charm is not heavy at all. I love how they add the extra smaller charms on it as well. I’m very happy to have this piece of jewelry and add it to my jewelry box. If you do not own any of ALEX & ANI bracelets you definitely need to check there site out. They also make other types of jewelry as well as home accessories.
