I recently received Influenster's Spring Fling Vox Box in the mail and, as soon as I opened it, I started tearing into the contents. I couldn't help myself. Mascara, lip balm, lotion, air freshener - I want all the goodies! I haven't tested everything yet because the ... ah ... opportunity hasn't arisen for some of the products to be put to use (bet you can guess which one I'm referring to ...) but the stuff I've tried so far has been pretty sweet.
Rimmel London Scandaleyes Retro Glam MascaraSo I have a little confession to make. Usually, when I shoot weddings, my eyes water up at some point in the day. Sometimes I get a little teary-eyed during the ceremony but most of the time my eyes just get watery from the wind/allergies/being outdoors. Also when I shoot, I close my left eye and look through the camera viewfinder with my right. Well, guess what. By the end of nearly every wedding, I have a smudge of black goo under my left eye that leaves me looking like a football-playing raccoon. I wore this mascara to my shoot last weekend and not only did it deliver on the "thicker, fuller, wide-eyed look" promise but it also stayed in place despite 8+ hours of me squinting and shooting outdoors. Winner, winner, chicken dinner.
Kiss Everlasting French NailsI haven't yet tried this product mainly because I haven't really had the time to sit down and do my nails but I'm excited for the next free afternoon I get because at-home French manicures are downright impossible for me to do and these seem super simple to use. Plus, the French mani is such an elegant, classic look it'll be a nice little change from my current chipped green nails.
Peach Pie Car Freshener from the Labor Day MovieThis air freshener is cute and definitely has a potent smell but I'm not a fan of peach-scented things so I can't exactly rave about this one. It sure is yummy-looking, though!
Playtex Sport Fresh BalanceI have not had cause to use these yet so ... yeah.
Nivea Skin Firming Hydration LotionThis stuff is so silky smooth! It smells good, too. A little perfumey at first but in a good way. I've been spreading it on my thighs like it's going out of style because if anything needs firming, it's the thighs. The lotion promises "firmer, more toned skin" in as little as two weeks. It's only been one week so I don't know about improved firmness but my thighs are definitely soft and moisturized.
Softlips CubeI love this freakin' thing. It's so cute and compact and it smells/tastes good, too! (Don't look at me like that - you know you lick your lips just a little more when you're wearing a yummy-flavored lip balm, too.) The scent/flavor I received is pomegranate blueberry and it's perfection. I forgot to wear a lip balm with SPF when I was shooting over the weekend so my lips got a little burned and chapped. Two days of applying this stuff and they were even softer and smoother than before. It's my new go-to lip balm, in case you were curious, and I love me some good lip balms so that's saying something!
Influenster sent all these products to me complimentary for testing/review purposes but the opinions are my own. Linking up with Nicole today for Treat Yo'Self Thursday!
