Breezy VoxBox

I received complimentary samples in the Breezy VoxBox through Influenster, a free sample program, to facilitate my honest review.

I received the following products and gave my impression accordingly:

  • Head & Shoulders® Volume Boost Anti Dandruff Shampoo and Conditioner – I never thought I would find a shampoo that adds volume and alleviates my dry scalp symptoms, but leave it to Head & Shoulders to give me my dreams! I love this shampoo, hands down, it’s not drying and it leaves hair and scalp happy and gorgeous. I use this about 2-3 times a week currently as I wash my hair everyday (I know!), but I can only stand up to a day without washing. I’ve used in combination with my other shampoos and still yield great results that last. My hair is volumized, my scalp no longer flakes, and my whole head is grateful. As much as I adore the shampoo, the conditioner was a bit disappointing, but I’m not sure what I expected. I love the fragrance of this line, firstly. It’s extremely appealing. The conditioner has .5% less of the pyrithione zinc and you can somewhat tell. It doesn’t really moisturize the hair as it probably helps the scalp. It complements the shampoo well and I wouldn’t use it with any other shampoo unless necessary. I currently use it in tandem with the shampoo.. It helps to volumize my hair, remove flakiness from my scalp, and add to my whole head’s health. I’d highly suggest for anyone struggling with dry scalp and finding a shampoo/conditioner that gives your hair a little something, too.

  • 20170614_162753Nair Hair Remover Wax Ready Strips – Big thumbs down! I have used many wax removers and these just don’t cut it. I have no idea what adhesive they used, but it’s incredibly gooey! You keep most of it on your face and will be lucky if you remove any hair from face or bikini area. They don’t hold well no matter how perfectly you apply them and forget using it more than 2 times because they don’t stick after that. I will not be purchasing this as the price is not comparable to other drug mart wax strips that are more effective.

 

  • Origins Perfect World SPF 40 Age-Defense Moisturizer with White Tea – I don’t understand how this is a moisturizer. It reeks like sunscreen, sheens like it, and lasts like it. Don’t get me wrong, I enjoy a good facial sunscreen, which this is close to had it not oiled up my T-Zone unlike some sheer facial sunscreens. This is thick, absorbs mediocrely, but protects very well. I wouldn’t buy this unless I was going to be outside in the sun with no makeup, but I wear makeup with sunscreen and this doesn’t moisturize well for application. IMG_20170721_113945_541
    • Origins Perfect World Age-Defense Eye Cream with SPF 20 – What a difference this eye cream is compared to the moisturizer! I really enjoyed it because it’s light like white tea and protects with SPF 20! It doesn’t sheen, it softens and felt like it lasted all day by blocking the sun from my blue eyes better than sunglasses! This is thin and water-like and absorbs quickly.

 

  • ProFoot Heel Rescue Foot Cream – I wasn’t sure about this cream as I have used many in the past and hate how they lingered and rubbed off on everything. ProFoot is different, but it’s imperative you wash your feet with warm water prior to application to real the full absorption and softening benefits.

20170718_094553It’s highly suggested for other rough areas, too, like elbows, knees, and hands. I couldn’t believe how well it worked on the first application. My callouses were moisturized and my feet felt happier immediately. I tried it on dry feet and the oils couldn’t absorb as well so you may get agitated if you try to walk with it on there. It’s incredibly affordable with unlimited uses that will continue to work on the toughest skin you have!

  • 20170603_203254Sour Punch Bites Ragin’ Reds – YUM! My boyfriend and I loved these! We took them to the Jack Johnson concert and passed them around to the delight of the crowd around us. I don’t like the tubular shape compared to the straw texture, but the flavor is completely there. Watermelon was my favorite.

 

  • Sour Punch Straws Pineapple Mango Chili – Disgusting… IMG_20170628_203947_439 Neither one of us liked these. The pineapple was extremely fake, mango anything is usually gross, and the chili was not methodically put in. You bite into it and it’s citrusy and then pure heat without any savory-ness that I believed this would provide. Do not even bother buying these.

This box was awesome for summer and we found some new things we loved, especially the Sour Punch Ragin’ Red Bites! Check out Influenster for yourself 🙂

Walmart Winter Beauty Box

Yes! Winter! After the snow we had yesterday, this could be believable. It’s now Spring in Cleveland and I’ll be getting the next Beauty Box soon from Walmart, but somthing had happened with my subscription that sent me this one just last week.

I did some digging and could only decipher that some of the subscriptions got messed up and you had to resign up at Walmart’s BB site. I also discovered that you can sign up for “Trendsetter” or “Classic.” I am a Trendsetter (T), apparently, and I’m not sure how you can switch or sign up for a new one and specify the type.

So, here goes! bb

Walmart’s Winter Beauty Box (T) had many baby samples!

bb  Nivea Soft Creme, which is one of my favorites! It’s got a soft fragrance, amazing moisturizing, greaseless, and quick absorption properties. I keep this formula around at all times because it’s great when my skin over-dries in the winter. You can see how I’ve been using it above on the patches of dry skin.

L’Oreal Total Repair 5, which is ranked highly via the link. I don’t know if I really like L’Oreal haircare because it tends to build up on my scalp and leave it weighing down, irrespective of the formula.  I received a full size product that I will be updating at a future date (Influenster). bb

Pump it up!

Aussie Mega Hairspray is a well-known and reliable product. I can never get into the signature scent, but they are great for needing hairstyles to “stick.”

Neutrogena Healthy Skin Boosters Facial Cleanser is a product I have tried before and loved. It’s for evening tone and brightening. I haven’t tried it extensively which it probably takes continuous use to see results. It claims it doesn’t overdry skin, and I would agree. My combination skin does well with it. I really love the scent of the white tea & vitamin e. bb

bb

L’Oreal Paris Revitalift Miracle Blur Instant Skin Smoother Finishing Cream is amazing! I actually really love the L’Oreal skincare line. The best part of this cream is that it has a high SPF and provides an amazing finish over the skin that can be worn alone. I have combination skin and this keeps my pores open and happy when worn alone over my daily Olay moisturizer. I suggest for all skin types and tones. It’s an awesome finishing cream that is truly instant!

bb

Crest 3D White Brilliance is a 2-part whitening system that is absolutely brilliant as a product! I needed this product badly because the whitening systems I use now bother my tooth where my gum receded. This helps target areas on my teeth and actually whiten them evenly. I drink a ton of black coffee daily and don’t brush right after, so this is amazing for protection and whitening through the day. I love this system and was hoping for a coupon, but I’ll continue to watch my ads to get the full version!

bb Jergens Natural Glow was sent in 3-day increments to see how quickly the results show and stay. I was intrigued by the claim that the scent was “award-winning.” I did not try this one. I sent to my sister who tried it and said she didn’t like the scent. It’s similar to their almond signature, but the tanning essence adds a nauseating element. The color showed quickly and lasted if you minimally showered, didn’t sweat, and had more than 3 days. Overall, it’s not like other ones that take a while to absorb and it has a good color, not very orangey.

Lastly, they included Ken Paves You Are Beautiful shampoo and conditioner. I didn’t like the package and the reviews made me hesitant. I will be giving this one away because I have a very sensitive scalp and would rather not experience terrible side effects.

I also uploaded a video unboxing to my YouTube page.

 

If you have any experience with the above items, I’d love to hear your opinion in my comments! I’ll be posting the Spring edition soon.
