BareMinerals Voxbox!

Hey guys! I’m here to review the BareMinerals BarePRO foundation given to me from influenster !


Is it possible that a foundation looks better the longer you have it on? I would say YES! I love the formula a little goes a long way! My dad who never notices actually commented on how smooth my face looked? He even told me I should keep buying it… I think that’s a VERY good sign. It’s comfortable, I forgot I had it on and it just seemed to look better and better the longer I had it on!


The one problem I do have is my skin has been So dry, nothing seems to not highlight my dry patches! I did feel like after this foundation settled it looked better. 


I wish the brush they recommend came with it. For some reason I feel like the application would have been better with the brush. 

For the purpose of just trying it out, I just used my hands.



It does a great job at evening the skin tone, has SPF and as I said before it does look better once it’s settled in. I personally would say use a primer before.

Overall I would recommend, if you want to know where you can get this foundation I’ll link it below, Also if wanna join influenster I will also have a link below. Thank you for reading to the end!

Posh voxbox!

Hey everyone how are you today!? I’m excited to share I was chosen to receive this AMAZING POSH VOXBOX From Influenster! 

The word Posh means “elegant or stylishly luxurious.”  So I was really excited to get this baby, with a definition like that, you can only imagine what products are included. So if you are ready to see whats inside? Keep scrolling down!


The brands in this Voxbox include:

Lets start off with the first thing I was excited about:

This AQUIS hair turban! These hair towels are made with ultralight  “Aquitex” drying technology. This means it cuts down the hair drying time and doesn’t damage your hair. You are also suppose to see and feel less frizz (I mean with the humidity we’ve had, I say YES PLEASE!).


The exact one I got is the AQUIS WAFFLE luxe hair turban. It retails for $30-$45. I kind of fell in love with it, if it were my choice I’d wear it on my head all the time. It’s comfortable and if you are like me, nothing stays on your head, this didn’t slip, held up all my hair up and it secures in the back. I love it & I reccomend it. Makes my life a tad bit easier being chronically Ill. 

Next is : Julep boost your radiance rosehip seed facial oil


The price for this miracle oil is $36. Leaves skin radiant and  hydrated. It repaires appearance of fine lines and hyperpigmentation, Also known as “wonder booster” contains Vit. E, rosehip seed oil and bergamot oil. 

But why is this beneficial? Don’t worry I gotchu! I did some research.

Vitamin E protects against free radicals. This is important because they play a big part in aging so good bye wrinkles! It also helps absorb the other oils better.

Rosehip seed oil regulates oil production, is full of vitamins, antioxidants, and fatty acids that correct hyperpigmentation (including scars).

Bergamot oil is a citrus and has a purifying effect. It unclogs pores and contains brightening benefits.

First let’s just say a little goes a long way! I put it on at night and the next morning no lie my skin looked radiant, clean and moisturized! My skin felt soft and I really enjoy the packaging! I love that it has a dropper, the product is visible and the white box it comes in gives it a simple and clean look.

Next is : Dermalogica stress positive eye lift  

 I was surprised at the price of this it’s the most expensive product costing $65! 


This cooling cream gel energizes skin to reduce visible signs of stress. It minimizes puffiness, dark circles, and increases skin luminosity, lifts eye area and helps restore skin barrier. Woah, try saying that in one breath!

It has a metal applicator tip that feels nice, plus the cooling effect is very nice. This was perfect as I have had a really stressful month so far. I could honestly immediately feel the difference, it doesn’t irritate my eye nor has a strong fragrance. Usually with products around my eyes I get teary eyed very easily. I look more awake and it absorbs wonderfully. I also appreciate it brings a little tube slider so you squeeze out every last drop. I’m not sure I would buy it on my own…. it IS pricey! 

Next is: BROWFOOD Aqua brow powder + pencil duo

This product sells at $25.

Now, I personally don’t need eyebrow products, I was blessed with frida thick eyebrows. I just have to keep them groomed but once in a while I’ll use a thing or two.

What caught my attention was that it’s a powder to cream eyebrow powder. They say that if you don’t want such a dramatic eyebrow, or if you are more of a natural eyebrow gal, to go with an eyebrow powder. So the fact that this turned to a cream was cool. And it’s not a lie it really does!

This product is: 

  • Drug free
  • Chemical free
  • Sulfate free
  • Paraben free 
  • Phthalate free
  • Synthetic- fragrance free
  • Plant based

Works ok, not really for me.  I did not like the packaging, it can get messy with the powder and the applicator isn’t the best for those who like precise brows. I like that they really strive to make natural, skin loving products and they give back. Now would I buy it? Probably not. 

Next up: Sigma Beauty Aura Powder & Sigma Beauty F40 Large angled contour brush 

The powder sells for $19

And the brush sells for $23


First I have never had, bought or used anything from Sigma so this was very exciting! 

The Aura powder looked too light to me at first and I thought it wasn’t going to look good. Well, let me tell you! They describe it as an all over face powder that can be used as blush, bronzer or all over to warm up the skin. I used it as a blush with the brush. Woah it was creamy, color pay off was incredible, and we cannot forget about that brush! So soft! The black and gold was GORGEOUS, and they are cruelty free WHAT! Amazing, in love with it and will be purchasing more sigma makeup and brushes.

Next up: OUIDAD Advanced climate control defrizz shampoo & conditioner


A 8.5oz bottle of shampoo sells at $22 and the 8.5oz bottle of conditioner sells at $24.

This is a sulfate free shampoo that cleanses your hair without taking all the moisture out of it. The conditioner adds back moisture your hair (curls) NEED. 

Why does frizz occur? Glad you asked, frizz happens when your cuticle layer is raised making ur hair seem…. well a frizzy, dry mess. In other words your hair is dehydrated! 

If you wanna learn more about frizzy hair ( especially if you have curly hair) and what products you should use click HERE

I cannot say enough good things about this shampoo and conditioner. This product plus the Aquis hair turban, equal a magnificent duo for girls with frizzy hair! 

Thank you for reading till the end! I really took my time to try, review and research as much as I could and I hope you enjoyed!

Maybelline Great lash Royal Blue voxbox 

Hey guys! I can not believe it has taken me so long to make this post. I am finally reviewing the Maybelline great lash royal blue voxbox! I was pretty excited getting chosen for this box, This would be second voxbox I get and the fact that it’s makeup makes me Happy.

First, let me show you the cute box and the products.

 


I love the colors of the packaging, very bright. Reminded me of a watermelon, well, enough about the packaging let’s get to the actual product. I got really excited for this blue mascara, One because blue is my fav. Color, Two because this mascara used to be my holy grail when I first got into makeup (except it was in black), and Three last time I used blue mascara was in high school!

Overall I like it, don’t expect to get a bold, bright, blue. I have pretty dark hair so for me it was really hard to notice it; I put on some blue eyeliner to bring attention to my lashes (which I think works). If you have lighter hair I imagine it would be more noticeable or maybe using a white primer could work to make the color more intense, if you just want to try something new but subtle I think it’s perfect and fun. 

The eyeliner was super thin, perfect  for tight linning.

I hope you enjoyed this review and thanks to influenster and maybelline for these product! If you have any questions or comments please leave them below!

Resolution Voxbox!


So I got my first Voxbox today! I’m excited to share with you what I got!


First off I got the Febreze ONE Fabric & Air Mist, it is a mist you can use on fabric or in the air without any heavy perfumes, dyes, or aerosols. I got it in the scent Orchid. It smells really good and great for people who don’t like overpowering smells, or if you have lung issues (as I do) some scents can be too much! This just freshens up the place in a nice way. Also, it’s pretty cool how all you have to change is the bottom part not the actual sprayer. 

Next are these yummy PopChips Ridges Cheddar & Sour Cream. Absolutely delicious this is like pop corn meets chips! They are not fried instead pressured for them to pop. And you just get a crispy, guilty free chip! I Will purchase these for myself and let me just say I had to share these and they were gone In less than 5 min. So yeah they are that good!

Now the Orgain Organic Protein bar is good not the best but great if you are on the go! I would like to try the other flavors, this peanut butter one was not my favorite. You know when you eat or drink something and you get that powdery after taste? Well, that is how I would describe the protein bar. It has 10g of protein, like I said not my favorite but I wouldn’t mind throwing it in my bag on the go once in a while.

Next on the list is Crispy Green Crispy Fruit. It is pretty much freeze dried fruit without any added sugars or preservatives. Not my favorite at all, first off  is it just me or the thought of dried cantaloupe is just weird? The texture was the first thing I did not like, I can compare the texture to astronaut ice cream, they go through the same freeze dried process but the texture and cantaloupe taste just did not do it. They were sweet but also just wierd. I feel like I would like to try their other flavors.


When I saw I was getting the Orabrush A DenTek Brand Tongue Cleaner I was very happy. I kid you not I had just thrown out my old one. I love how this cleans the tongue, the bristles are not harsh at all and you can really scrub your tongue without hurting yourself. It’s easy to clean and comes in five different colors! I have tried other tongue cleaners but I feel this one has been the best I have tried so far. Would definitely recommend this, if you want to try it there will be a link for you to get your own free Orabrush, just pay shipping!  Free OraBrush 

Next is Burt’s Bees Protein+ Healthy Radiance Powder and they have two flavors: vanilla and chocolate. I have not tried it yet, nor do I think I will, at least not yet. I would have rather have gotten the chocolate flavor and not vanilla. Personally the drink does not sound appetizing to me. If you want me to try it, and review it let me know below.


And last I got coupons for stuff that I got in the box, plus a coupon to try the Sabra Guacamole Grab & Go free. 

I feel very lucky to be part of influenster and it’s fun! Thank you for staying til the end bye!
