Influenster ~ Back To Basics VoxBox

*Provided for free in return for my honest review

Hey guys! Bringing you something besides nails today! It has been quite a while since I have gotten anything for Influenster so I was super happy to get the notice that the Back To Basics VoxBox was on its way. It did come pretty late so I haven’t had tons of time with it. With that being said, I will make this a quick post. Let’s see what I got 🙂

 

Let’s get these 2 things out of the way first. If you saw my YouTube video then you know I don’t like them. I have never liked SunnyD. I really don’t know why, it’s just never been a thing for me. Right after this pic was taken my 12-year-old was very happy to take it off of my hands. Even though I don’t like it, I would totally buy this for the kids. Who doesn’t love stuff that’s grab-n-go?! As far as the Crispy Green snacks… none of us like them. Not even my husband and that’s a hard thing to do! I love fruit. I even love pears. These were flavorless things. They tasted nothing like pear and we will definitely not be buying these!

 

Deodorant is always a great thing to get. While I do like these both and recommend them, I have a specific brand I buy (also sent to me from Influenster!) and my husband is allergic to something in most deodorants so these just kinda sit and become backups if we run out. What I love about the spray is that anyone can use it. It’s not something that makes contact with the skin so there is no germ spreading! The smell is good but a bit strong. Otherwise a great product 🙂

evaEva Nyc Mane Magic 10-IN-1 Primer is great for my daughter’s hair. My hair is very straight and super easy to deal with so I don’t use straighteners or blow dryers. My daughter, however, inherited her father’s hair. It is thick, curly, and very coarse. We have tried millions of things to make her hair a little more manageable. I know this is a primer but because of the oils in it, it softens Keira’s hair and makes it a little easier to brush. Yay for multipurpose!! Definitely would suggest this product to others 🙂

I LOVE THIS! Simple Hydrating Booster is my new must have ❤ My skin is always on the dry side and this has really helped. I have only had it for a few days but it really does make a noticeable difference. I use a little in a thin layer all over my face and neck before I use my moisturizer. I looked it up at my closest Wal-Mart and it is less than $5 USD!! If you have drier skin you NEED this! Highly recommend 🙂

bbtoy

I saved this for last because I love my in-laws dogs ❤ They are seriously family. Zeva, the youngest, took to this toy immediately. She loves that it makes noise. And since she is under a year old she REALLY enjoys chewing on it. While I will not be subscribing to BarkBox, I have suggested it to the rents and they are most likely going to sign up. The quality of this dog toy is fantastic so if that says anything for the box, it says that it’s totally worth the price! Definitely check out BarkBox 🙂

#SproutVoxBox

                                                                              *Provided for review

          Hello! Today I am bringing you my Influenster Sprout VoxBox. I am trying to get better at finishing all of my tasks for my voxboxes so you will hopefully see these posts more often. I will give you a quoted blurb about the product then I will tell you what I thought! Here goes 🙂

Don’t mind the desk. This is my box!! Just wanted to show how big it was!

          Orgain Organic Protein Powder in Vanilla Bean. $23.99 (1lb.)

          “Orgain Organic Protein Powder is a plant-based protein powder that is smooth and delicious. Orgain Organic Protein Powder is USDA Organic, Vegan, Gluten-Free, Soy Free, and Non-GMO.”
          I did not care for this too much. I love all the qualities it has, don’t get me wrong! I am just not much of a vanilla person. My preference would have been chocolate obviously lol. Overall though, this was a great product.

For this smoothie I used  Orgain Organic Protein Powder in Vanilla Bean, frozen raspberries, frozen strawberries, frozen blueberries, 1 small frozen banana, 1 cup plain yogurt and pineapple juice. 
 
          Orgain:: Facebook:: Instagram:: Twitter:: Website:: YouTube::
          Ecos $7.25 (50 oz.), $10.15 (100 oz.), $16.90 (170 oz.).
          “The formula for ECOS Hypoallergenic Laundry Detergent is simple: High-quality ingredients + low price + a little love = our best seller! Our signature Magnolia & Lily scent is ultra-concentrated with gentle plant-derived ingredients and a built-in fabric softener to save you money.”
          I loved this stuff. It made my clothes feel softer and they smelled so fresh. Price isn’t horrible but with only 1 income I doubt we will be buying this on a regular basis.

           Hair Food Moisture Collection $9.99
           “The Hair Food Moisture Collection is designed to soothe dry hair by adding just the right amount of hydration and shine.  With honey essences, inspired by the way honey soothes and revitalizes your body, Hair Food Moisture Shampoo and Conditioner provide luxurious moisture and nourishment for healthy looking hair.  Hair Food Moisture Shampoo is free of silicones, parabens and mineral oil, and the Hair Food Moisture Conditioner is free of parabens and mineral oil.” 
          I liked this product a lot. I felt that it gave my hair volume and made the texture so soft. Not to mention the shine! As soon as I finish the bottle I am working on now I will be switching!

          Eatsmart $3.99
          “Eatsmart Snacks enjoys creating snacks out of bold flavors of nature, like garlic or peppers.  Our Three Bean Tortilla Chips are made with pinto, navy and black beans, have 14 grams of whole grains, are gluten-free and made with non-GMO ingredients!”
          These were DELICIOUS! I could eat these every day. I love the spice to them so much. The spice was a little too much for my husband so I was able to keep these all to myself! 🙂

          Curate Bars (Dark and Tempting flavor) $1.89 (Single bar), $6.49 (4-count Carton)
          “Curate is a new snack brand that takes a culinary approach to nutritious snacking.  We bring together real food ingredients to create unexpected, yet brilliant flavor combinations that taste handcrafted by a chef.” 
          
          I did not like this bar. It not not for my taste buds at all. It is however, everything I am looking for in a bar like this. Natural and even a little sophisticated!

Influenster #FrostyVoxBox

Who absolutely loves to try out new things? Free things? How about give opinions? Yes? I thought so!! That’s what Influenster is! I received everything in this box complimentary from Influenster to try, and give my honest opinion. Check out what came in this #frostyvoxbox and see what I think!
                                                      WARNING: Picture heavy!!

I am super happy to have gotten some thyme! Who doesn’t need a little extra thyme lol! Too tacky? I used this to season my chicken for dinner. All I did was melt some butter with the thyme in it and poured that over my chicken then baked it! Its such a wonderful and homestyle type spice. I always use thyme in my cooking so this was right up my alley!!

It is a very rare occasion for me to wear make up. I have pretty bad anxiety and I also have a skin picking disorder. My husband got free movie tickets so we planned a date night and with my face I needed to use makeup!! Luckily for me I have pretty awesome eyes and eyelashes! I wore all water proof makeup because I knew I was going to cry (Hobbit 3). After the movie and before bed I used this with a cotton round. I held it on my (closed lol) eye for about 5 seconds then swiped. Took about 3 good swipes but my eyes were totally make up free! I will definitely be keeping this around and possibly wearing more makeup 🙂

Ah, the Fruit Vines. I only had enough time to get 2 pics of this bag before it was opened then emptied. They were delicious!! These were not waxy like some fruit snacks can be. The best part was the real cherry flavor. It wasn’t that fake, sweet, lollipop like cherry. We have already bought more and most likely will again!

If you happen to need a brush I suggest this one right here. It works awesome with my fine straight hair and even better with my daughters thick curly/wavy hair!! The handle is smooth and the brush head flexes! Such a great design.
 

TEA!!! I LOVE TEA! My favorite tea ever is actually peppermint tea so this was perfect for me! it really should say For: Jenn, right on the package. I expected this to taste the same as peppermint tea but I was wrong. I’m not sure how to explain it but it really tasted like a candy cane. It had a slight sweetness about it. and because I don’t read, I was double happy when I found out it had 2 tea bags!! YAY!!

This. I said before I hardly wear make up. I really don’t have a face routine at all. I should probably get on that because I am not getting younger. Either way, I passed this sample to my mother in law to test out. she said it was very nice on her sensitive skin. No real long term effects as this was just a small sample.

This was the eyeliner I used for date night with my husband. After crying at the movie the makeup didn’t smudge 🙂 It glided on smoothly and evenly. I will definitely be checking this out in other colors. And its such a great value!!

Also something I wore on my date night. I love lip stuff of any kind. I prefer chapsticks and balms with no color because im plain like that lol.  That’s why I really liked this. It was moisturizing like a balm but light enough so it was still “me”.  Definitely a great base if you have a favorite shiny or shimmer gloss to layer over the top. And again, This is a very good priced product!

And this is just because KITTIES!!!!! This is my kitten Ash. He LOVES boxes. He was in this one before it was even emptied 🙂

Influenster Rose Voxbox

Hello!! This post is not a nail post but it involves polish… does that count? Just wanna give you a quick review of the products i was given from Influenster 🙂 If you dont know what this is it is a product testing site. You dont just get free stuff. You have to review it, take pics, all that good stuff 🙂 if you are interested please email me!! I have invites 🙂 (jstmynails@gmail.com) Ok, i loved this box!! It had lotion, chocolate, nail polish, and more. Lets start with the Dr. Scholl’s for her cozy cushions. I actually passed these along to my mom because i wear flip flops all year long lol. I did ask her how they were and she loves them. She wears steal toe boots for work and she said her feet are always warm and comfortable. Even when working outside in the winter!! So i would say A+ for those 🙂 The Lindor chocolate, what can be said?? It was gone before i even knew what else was in my box!! Of course it was smooth and heavenly. Its my favorite chocolate so they did good!! The lotion i got was Vitabath hydrating lotion in wild red cherry scent. Smells so good i could eat it. My daughter always has a reason that she neeeeeddddss to put the lotion on for lol. And a little goes a long way!! The only issue i have is that it is a little greasy. Not for long cuz it all soaks in pretty quickly but i still am not a fan of that feeling. Now the mascara. I have very long dark thick lashes naturally so i dont use much mascara. This i am no help with. I did use it to try it but to me it seemed like every other kind. Still clumped a little bit as well. Sorry i cant be of more help with this one. But as for the Belvita breakfast cookies, OMG!!! I could eat those for every meal every day. Soooooo yummy 🙂 cant wait to try more flavors. And they kept me full for quite a while!! Aahhh last but not least, my Kiss gradation set. I love the idea of this but wasnt totally pleased. I have a review a few posts back including pictures. Each of the 3 polishes are great on their own. Gonna have to give this set another try. How did you enjoy your rose voxbox??
