Good afternoon ladies! These past few days have been very busy and I have missed posting a day or two. The good thing is, I was able to try out some new products from Influenster and Vox Box! And boy this box of goodies did not disappoint! If you follow me then you know I get to review products every couple of months in all kinds of categories. This month it is all about hair and beauty. My FAVES!!! I thought I would get some of the products out to you ASAP but will try to finish up by the end of the month.
I got so many products in this box it was overwhelming! I haven’t used them all, but hopefully, I will get to them soon. I’ve got items from eyeshadow to Scalp Scrubs! So let’s start talking about what was in the box and things I absolutely LOVE so far! Look at all the products I have to review!! Whew…overwhelming LOL!!!
A Mascara That I LOVE!
I’ve been looking a mascara that I could apply one or twice and get the results I was looking quickly. I don’t have time in the morning to keep putting on layers of mascara- I will just skip the process altogether. I’m a working mom and need to roll some mornings quickly. Girls, let me tell ya…I almost bought this mascara about a week ago but held off. I got the Younique Motives Fiber Lush Mascara in this box and I have fallen in LOVE!!! I literally have tried hundreds of mascaras over the years and NEVER fell in love with one like this! I rated this 5 Stars as an Influencer and meant every star!
Now that we have lashes down pat, let me talk about a few dry shampoos I have used this week. I’m not going to lie, picking out my favorite was REALLY hard and I’m not even sure if I’m being true to myself about which one I prefer. So, let me tell you about the first one I used, it was Amica Perk Up Dry Shampoo and it rates a 4.59 out of a 5 from 1.9K reviews. So you know this one is a GOOD one. I have to admit, this was the one I kept picking up each morning, why? My roots never felt like they were nasty or gunked up with product. That’s the one thing I cannot stand with dry shampoos – when you run your fingers through your hair around the scalp area and it feels like you have build up from days there- Ummm NO!
Hair Products You Need Now!
A few other dry shampoos that were in my box were Batiste Dry Shampoo, this rates at 4.25 stars out of 5 with over 33K reviews. My daughter loves this one and won’t really sway from it. It’s definitely her “go to” dry shampoo, but will venture into my bathroom and try other products when she’s out. (I’m kind of assuming that my products are a little more expensive than the Batiste and she’s not willing to pay more LOL) Maybe I did teach her to be stingy with her money, one thing is for sure – she’s definitely not stingy trying to spend my money! Any moms out there can relate to that?? I bet there are A LOT!
Let’s talk about the NYX Matte Finish Setting Spray, oh my lord!!!! I used this the past two days and I have determined that this is my new favorite setting spray. I sell Limelife by Alcone and have used their Oil Strike Setting Spray for almost two years and thought I would never find another setting spray like that – but I have and it may be even better!
A few other items I have tried and writing reviews on are the Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray, I’m currently loving this product. Especially on 2nd-day hair lol…I use the Oribe Dry Texturizing Spray when doing an updo or a messy bun. Just hold your hair up in sections and spray at your roots where you want fullness, works every time! This is a little expensive, but definitely worth it! It will last a right good while, I started out with the travel size (2.2 oz. and that runs around $18-$22, the full size runs around $38 – $46).
A Lipstick that a
I’m going to post all the products below so you can look through them, these are the hottest items right now for Influencers and thought you girls might like a sneak peek!! But, before that, I have to tell you about the lipstick that I am not putting down. I literally have worn this lipstick every day since I got my Vox Box! If you have never tried any of Kat Von D products, you MUST try some. I use a lot of her eyeshadows and blushes, and this was my first time trying the Everlasting Liquid Lipstick. I got the Lolita shade in the Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick and let me tell ya, it says everlasting and boy does it mean it! It didn’t smudge, kiss off, nor smear – a 5-star rating from me!!!
As soon as I am able to go through the entire box and give you girls a true review, I certainly will!! I hope this quick blog will help you if you are looking for some of these items. I know I am always looking good hair products that actually work. Being a mom, grandma and working from home and at home – I need quick, simple and easy! I know I can’t be the only woman out there that wants QUICK AND EASY!!!
You girls have a blessed Saturday and enjoy the rest of your weekend! We are expecting some snow here, or they are saying we may get some. I hope so because we have our granddaughter this weekend and boy do I LOVE playing with that little bundle of energy!! Shout out to the Grandma’s, Gigi’s, Nana’s and Grannies!! Isn’t having a grandchild the BEST thing EVER!!!! 🙂
