Hey There Polished People!
I received the Holiday Vox Box from Influenster a couple of weeks ago and thought it was about time I show you what was in it! I have talked about it some on Twitter, but today I’m going to show you what was inside and then tomorrow I’ll go into more depth with the nail product that was included because, naturally, that is what is of most interest to me Here we go!
Holiday 2012 Vox Box
Quaker Real Medley Apple Walnut Oatmeal
Montagne Jeunesse Clean Up Mud Deep Cleansing Mask
I used this right away. I love facial masks and treatments. Anything that says it’s going to make my pores smaller, my face cleaner, more moisturized, etc… I’m going to try. Luckily for me I don’t have any allergies that keep me from trying things, although I do have somewhat sensitive skin which can sometimes be a problem. This didn’t irritate my skin at all. It was fun to put on, dried up all crusty-clay-like and then rinsed off easily enough. It left my skin feeling extra clean, too.
Natural Energy EBoost, pink lemonade flavor
NYC Liquid LipShine in Nude York City
This is a nice product, the color is a super-shiny nude as the name would suggest. NYC Liquid LipShine has your typical sticky formula that I’m not a huge fan of because it tends to leave me with a yucky residue after most of the product is gone. The other thing that keeps me from loving this product is its long, super floppy “doe’s foot” type applicator. It’s too flexible and I feel like it makes it hard to apply the product cleanly and quickly. It’s like there’s a hinge or a flex-point between the wand and the applicator and it just flexes too much.
Goody QuickStyle Blow Out Hair Brush
This is something that I really like! Goody says it dries your hair 30% faster than a standard brush, but I can’t back that claim. It might; it might not. The problem for me is that I don’t always blow dry my hair at all, and I definitely don’t blow dry it immediately following my shower when it’s sopping wet. That being said, this brush MAY dry your hair quicker, but for me I don’t think it does. I have long, thick, wavy hair and when I used this brush, the microfiber bristles seemed to really grip my hair and slow down the ability of the brush to slide through my hair and I just don’t think it dried my hair any more quickly than my usual vented paddle brush. What I liked about it is that the microfiber bristles seemed to really grip my hair and kind of pull it very straight and smooth as I blew my hair dry. I usually have to blow dry, then straighten my hair, but by using this brush I can get by JUST blowing it dry.
Kiss Nail Dress
I got the Kiss Nail Dresses in a blinged-out leopard print. I have tried them, but have not tested the “up to 10 days of wear” claim. Tomorrow in my post you will see my initial review of these. Just looking at them I thought they were cute and definitely intriguing. Until I tried these, I’d never used any type of nail strips, so stay tuned tomorrow to see how these worked for me
