I hate this whole first sentence thing sometimes. Times like today where nothing I write seems to sound
good awesome right….ugggh. SEE. So I am just going to jump in.
During the holiday season, I received my Holiday Voxbox from Influenster. I was super stoked when I got it on Christmas Eve. Total early Christmas present.
Here is what I got.
Some pretty neat stuff. I had a lot of fun trying everything out.
Goody QuickStyle Brush- This brush is supposed to dry your hair 30% faster.
Remember Sham Wow? I am pretty sure that is what the blue stuff is on the brush.
Pros: It works. My hair gets dry much faster. AND it is really light weight.
Cons: The bristles are really harsh. I don’t have a tender head but this brush makes me my scalp feel raw. Also, you have to clean it out every time and lets get real, I am WAAY too lazy for that.
Moral of the story: I wouldn’t pay money for this, but it does make my hair drying time much faster.
NYC Liquid Color: It’s lip gloss (obvs), in Nude York City
Pros: It isn’t sticky, which is pretty awesome. Also, the color is a super neutral so it goes with everything.
Cons: The brush on the end is really flimsy and feels super awkward when on my lips…I feel awkward talking about it…haha.
Moral of the story: I wouldn’t buy it. The brush applicator is just too much for me.
PS. This is how you take a picture of your nude color lip gloss…I didn’t realize it was going to be so difficult…!
EBOOST: A powder mix energy drink. It isn’t supposed to make you crash and it is supposed to make you do awesome things like focus and what not…
Pros: I can’t really think of anything.
Cons: Everything. When I opened it, it smelled like stale cigarettes that had been locked up in a small house for decades and you just opened the door and took a whiff for the first time in ages. My hands still smell like cigarettes…Ugh. Also, it tastes horrible. Below is a picture of how horrible.
Moral of the story: SAVE YOURSELF. DON’T BUY IT!!!
Montagne Jeunesse Face Mask: Its a mud mask.
Pros: It left my face feeling really smooth and moisturized.
Cons: Mud masks are weird.
Moral of the story: They are pretty cool. They are under $2, so if you like mud hardening on your face every now and then, go for it.
What’s up, what’s up.
Kiss Nail Dress
Pros: They have cute designs. Easy to take off.
Cons: They took foreverrrrr to put on. I took them off after just 3-4 days because the sticky-ness came undone and stuff stuck to them. gross.
Moral of the story: If you want some of these, I would go for the Sally Hansen kind. So much better and last much longer.
Not bad. Not worth the work.
Quaker Real Medleys Oatmeal: Summer Berry Oatmeal
Pros: Tastes good and easy to make. I am not sure if there is anything more I could ask for.
Cons: I couldn’t find anything…oh, a box of oatmeal is cheaper.
Moral of the story: Try it out. They are great for if you are in a hurry and need something fast.
We also got a coupon for $25 off a pair of shoes at SoleSociety. Their shoes start at $50 a pair, so $25 for a pair of shoes isn’t bad, I am just not in the market for shoes right now. (Weird, right?)
So anyways, I am pretty excited that this was dropped off at my doorstep for free, so I can’t complain too much.
I had a bunch of fun trying out all these new things. Are you a member of Influenster? Did you get their holiday voxbox? What did you think of it?
PS. Dear WordPress, please stop changing things around. Your website NEVER works after and I don’t like the changes…Thanks. Amanda.
