Vow VoxBox from Influenster

It's here! My first VoxBox from Influenster!

Described as the box "For the brides, bridesmaids, mothers-of-the-bride, wedding guests, and wedding crashers of Influenster Nation!" Which ends up being perfect for me, since I will be attending three different weddings this summer. On to the contents!

  • Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure - $7.99
  • Olay Regenerist Luminous Tone Perfecting Cream - $30.99
  • Pure Silk Moisturizing Shave Cream - $1.49
  • EcoTools Pure Complexion Sponge - $5.99
  • Tide to Go - $7.99 (for 3 pens)
  • Riley and Grey 50% off code
Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure - I have yet to try this product, but plan to do a manicure using it this week! Stay tuned for a review once that happens!

Olay Regenerist Luminous Tone Perfecting Cream - Although I can't tell you if it actually fades dark spots in 8 weeks as it claims, I CAN tell you that this stuff makes a wonderful night cream! I have very oily skin so I stick to gel moisturizers during the daytime, but I have been using this product at night for about a month now. It has a subtle but amazing scent and has really helped control the dry patches I have been getting on my nose. (These dry spots came out of NOWHERE I tell you!) It's rich but not so rich that you wake up with in a puddle of grease. I definitely recommend this product to others who struggle with dry patches, especially for the night time!

Pure Silk Moisturizing Shave Cream - You can read my review on this product in a previous post - right HERE!

EcoTools Pure Complexion Sponge - Below you will find my review on this sponge from the EcoTools website - in a nutshell I LOVED this product and think that it's an exceptional deal at just $5.99!

Tide To Go - What can I say, this is a tried-and-true item that has saved my butt for years! I happen to be a very messy eater, and also tend to spill a LOT of coffee! Most recently though, it saved my husband's shorts from a nasty ketchup spill on the 4th of July! Luckily I had my Tide To Go pen in my purse that day!

Riley and Grey - I didn't use my code since I didn't need to make a wedding website, but I checked out what they offered and can say that their sites look fabulous! Here is my favorite:

Riley & Grey Camillia Design

I like that you don't even have to click the buttons on the top to browse the site, you just keep scrolling down and it will go through all of the tabs at the top automatically! The price will run you $35/month or $240 for a year. I think that a website like this could actually save you money in the long run. If you have a younger crowd attending your wedding, you could publish many of your details on the site and cut down on paper that you send out with your invitations.

Overall, I really enjoyed my first VoxBox and thought it contained great products for someone like myself!

What do you guys think?

Pure Silk Moisturizing Shave Cream with Aloe! #PureSilk

Hello friends!

Today I have a review of Pure Silk Moisturizing Shave Cream in Raspberry Mist. I received this product free in my Vow VoxBox from Influenster. If you are not familiar with Influenster, it is a "social media powered product review site". You review products, complete tasks, and sometimes get lucky and receive a VoxBox! My Vow VoxBox included multiple items that I will be reviewing - so stay tuned if you would like to learn what I got!

Pure Silk shave cream claims include "special combination of ingredients creates a luxuriously rich lather that protects against nicks and cuts, leaving your skin as smooth as silk and ready for maximum exposure." I am used to using shaving gels that foam up into a cream once you lather, so this type of cream was something that I haven't used in a very long time. I have found, after multiple uses, that I actually enjoy the texture of this cream much better than the gel-to-cream formulas that other brands use. Definitely a win!

Pure Silk definitely leaves your legs feeling soft. I have very dry skin on my legs and I found that the formula left enough moisture that I didn't even have to apply lotion afterwards. Another win for Pure Silk in my book!

The fragrance of the product is also wonderful! Raspberry scented items can be hit or miss for me, but this product has a subtle scent that is enjoyable. You also can't beat the price!

Overall, I really enjoyed this product and WILL be purchasing more!

 Hooray for silky smooth legs!
