Influenster Goddess VoxBox Review

Last month, I was chosen to receive an Influenster VoxBox for their Goddess VoxBox campaign. The products inside the Goddess VoxBox were given to me for free in exchange for my opinions. If you want to take a look inside the box and get my honest review on these beauty products, please stick around and continue reading…

 

dickinsons witch hazel reviewDickinson’s Enhanced Witch Hazel Alcohol-Free Hydrating Toner

Price: $6.99

Dickinson’s Enhanced Witch Hazel Alcohol-Free Hydrating Toner gently hydrates and nourishes skin with Hyaluronic Acid and Vitamin E as it cleanses, tones and refreshes skin. Our alcohol-free formula helps skin maintain its natural balance as it gently removes impurities and reconditions skin. Skin feels hydrated, fresh and clean without tightness for soft, smooth and healthy looking skin.

 

Opinion

: I really appreciate Influenster sending out a full-size bottle of the Dickinson’s Enhanced Witch Hazel Alcohol-Free Hydrating Toner. As a person who has oily and acne-prone skin, I’m afraid to use most toners. The toners I have used in the past contained salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide – which help to kill bacteria, reduce inflammation, and exfoliate (and therefore, unclog) your pores.  While those ingredients may have temporarily helped my skin, it usually came with a cost – it would dry the livid daylights out of my skin to the point my skin would eventually start overproducing oil and have terrible breakouts a few months later. No good!

So, back to this product!  I like how this didn’t make my face feel tight after using it. In fact, it made my face feel and look smoother and softer. It’s refreshing to use after wearing makeup all day, a hot day, or working out at the gym (I don’t know anything about going to gym, so don’t look here, haha). Another thing I really like about using this product was that it soothed and reduced the inflammation I had from a mosquito bite underneath my chin. After a few hours, it disappeared!

Sinful Colors Nail PolishSinful Colors Nail Polish in We’re All Matte Here

Sinful Colors has hundreds of irresistible trend nail polish shades in creams, glitters, shimmers, mattes, specialty textures and eye popping brights.

The Matter at Hand: Tune up your talons with matte nails! This chic & sexy trend brings intensity to any color.

Opinion

: I never tried Sinful Colors nail polish before and I’m really not a huge fan of the Kardashian-Jenner clan but this nail polish is SO CUTE. I received the porcelain matte formula in the color We’re All Matte Here, a pretty and bold coral that is perfect for your summer manicure and pedicure.

: I personally never been a person who absolutely needs to have fragrance in her detergent and thought dryer sheets were a waste of money. I gave this a try and I really like it! I approve!

Cutex Nail Polish Remover ReviewCutex Advanced Revival Nail Polish Remover Pads

Price: $1.49 – $3.99

Tiny but mighty, just one of these individually-wrapped pads packs enough punch to clean polish from 10 fingers or toes. TSA-compliant and travel-ready, Cutex Advanced Revival Remover Pads are your go-to polish remover when you’re on the go.

Opinion

: Nice concept but I hated how when I tried to remove nail polish on my second hand, the pad already dried out. I really didn’t like that I had to use two out of the three nail polish remover pads to remove the polish on my finger nails.

Always Radiant Flex Foam Pads ReviewAlways Radiant with FlexFoam

Price: $4.30 – $6.40

Skinny jeans. Pencil skirts. Leather leggings. When it comes to your style, there’s no room for leaks! Luckily, Always Radiant pads let you wear what you because they’re up to 100% leak-free. Always Radiant pads are made with Flex Foam that absorbs 10x its weight, which means they’ve got your back all day long- for up to 8 hours. And they’re so thin and flexible, you might forget it’s even there. So grab that little black dress and stay confident all day long in Always Radiant pads. Always Radiant pads aren’t the only way to make leak-free periods possible!

Opinion

:
This was another product in the Influenster Goddess VoxBox that I wasn’t amazed by. I found the size of the pad to be TOO SMALL for my liking. I also found the wings on the pad to be too small and got nervous because I like most women, do not want to have an accident. While I could see people may like the fact that the pad is scented, I didn’t really like the scent. I don’t want to imagine how this fragrance on the pad would affect someone who is sensitive to scents or has sensitive skin – especially in that intimate area.

For now, I’ll stick with using the thin Always Overnight pads.

Discover how to instantly hydrate dry hair with Pantene Expert Pro-V Intense Hydration Shampoo & Conditioner. Featuring one of our most concentrated Pro-V formulas, the ultra-nourishing and moisturizing shampoo and conditioner hugs your hair as it wraps each strand in moisture for intense hydration and instant softness.

Opinion

:
Unfortunately, I haven’t had the opportunity to try out this shampoo and conditioner. I installed box braids in my hair back in June and I don’t want to mess up my hairstyle with constantly washing it. I gave it to my boyfriend to try out. I’ll update this section once he gives me his thoughts on it.
