FREE SAMPLES!!! Influenster Summer VoxBox

For those that don’t know, influenster.com is a review website, that you sign up for free, take a few quizzes to earn badges and done, wait to see if you get a free test box. Now, I am so sorry I don’t remember whose post I read that made me go to the site, but if you are reading this, thank you!

I signed up last month, and was so excited when I got when I got one in the mail  last week and this is what they sent !

This promised  to soften hands, smooth cuticles and condition nails. I’m not sure if it did all that, or if I need to give it a bit more time, but this light weight lotion with its citrusy smell, is the perfect summer hand lotion to through in my purse.

Got one of these bars and I loved it! Alone it was yummy with its banana bread taste, but warmed up…..it took it to a whole ‘nother level! Yum 🙂

Yup, pads tampons, liners. But I must say, the wristlet is very cute 🙂

Cant wait to try this! It’s the awesome nail polish that you put on, hold a magnet over and WOW, a cool pattern, very psychedelic 🙂

Finally got a sample of sunscreen, and I must say I really like it! I have oily skin, and when I put sunscreen on it just becomes more greasy looking, but so far, this has not done that. It goes on like a lotion, has a really pleasant shea butter texture and smell and rubs in without the white shadow that other sunscreens give.

Final Word: Go sign-up everyone, you have nothing to lose. Seriously, take a few quizzes and that’s it 🙂

Sally Hansen Airbrush Legs

Woke up Monday, looked outside, nice sunny dress wearing weather. Looked down at nice white legs…..yeah not happening.

I’m not a fake tan kind of girl. I always found them to look so orange and fake on others that I never wanted to try it out myself. However, I’m a curious kind of spirit and I love trying new things and this month it just so happens I’m into dresses and dresses require a nice pair of legs.

Now while I’m willing to expose my thick hammy calves to the world, I refuse to subject the world to their blinding whiteness 🙂

So off I went to Target and picked up this little bad boy for $7 USD.

Packaging: Metallic aerosol container, product squirts out like thick hairspray

Product: As I said above the product is like a thick hairspray that kinda bubbles and foams, depending on how close you aim it. Basically you spray it into your  hands and rub  onto desired area. You can apply a light layer or thick, depending on the affect you are going for. The product does dry quickly so work in small patches and work fast. Also it says its water  proof, which it is to some extent. Just don’t wear white or go swimming and you will be fine 🙂 Oh,  use a hand soap and it comes off your hands easily when done applying.

Overall: I can honestly when I first tried this “tan in a can” I hated it! It made me look like I was wearing orange nylons and made my legs look like I had purposely rubbed foundation on them.  But then something wonderful happened. After about ten minutes, after the product had settled, my legs looked great 🙂 The tan looked “natural”  and all the little discoloration I had from sports scars were covered. 

Whats more, I even got comlimented…..BY A BOY!  (it was a good friend of mine who I adore)

So should you buy it….yeah why not. You have to work with it a little, but remember to use a light hand and pick the right color for the affect you are going for and you’ll be fine.

SIDE NOTE: This is just a cosmetic fix product so with gentle exfoliation it washes off easily so if you are looking for a long term tan then this is not for you, but if you just want a quick tan for the day then go for it 🙂

I wore my tan all week but forgot to take pics, so here’s a borrowed picture from online showing how the tan works.

 

Confessions of a Nail Polish Junkie

Sigh. I’ve hit an all time low. I went to Walgreen’s to get a replacement foundation, and ended up with 5 new nail polishes! You might be saying what’s the big deal, its only 5, well if you knew I already had 92 (not including the 15 I gave my sister) you might have a different answer.

So this obsession started with a navy blue polish from N.Y.C for $0.99. I thought I was the shiz nitz rocking blue nails! Shoot I flashed my hands whenever I could. Eventually, I got tired of the blues and thought, hmmm let me try this color then that color and oh that looks nice then…..argghh shake my head in shame.

But ladies it doesn’t just stop there. GLITTER! GLITTER is my downfall. If it sparkles and I can paint it on my nails, then trust when I say I got it. Shoot, my  glitter obsession got so bad last summer that I binged on eBay and bought a 24 pack of glitter dust from China just so I can just dunk my nails in them.

Yup…I’m obsessed.

This week I will be sharing with you guys some of my favorite brands, colors and designs 🙂 I hope you all enjoy.
