Sunkissed Voxbox 2013 iliketotalkalot

It’s been a while since I’ve done a review for Influenster. Actually, I have been sent stuff every so often, but a lot of it just didn’t give me much to write about. And the last box I received had the same items I already reviewed in the past. Kinda lame…which is why I was surprised when I received my Sunkissed VoxBox. I actually liked everything I got in this box and going to share with you why.

influenster dr scholls for her high heel iliketotalkalot

Dr. Scholl’s For Her High Heel Insoles ($10.99)
These babies are clinically proven to prevent foot pain from wearing our sexy 2″+ heels all year long! Just remove the adhesive and stick into your favorite or most painful pair of heels and feel the difference. I’ve actually purchased these in the past when I literally wore heels 6 to 7 days a week. What? I love my heels!

I tend to get a lot of ball of foot pressure that has started an ugly callous –so these inserts definitely help in helping them from getting worse. Just peel and stick ladies, they are totally worth putting in those club heels you know you’ll be dancing in all night!

I received the middle one from influenster – I bought the two on the ends immediately afterwards

SinfulShine with Gel Tech ($2.99)
Sinful Colors can now provide nailpolishistas the gel look without the damaging UV curing or removal process. With 32 colors of COURSE your going to find one you like. Another girl got a really pretty pool blue color. I got “set the mood” a deep dark blue. Would have preferred a more summery color, and already saw this display at Walgreens *for a limited time* so I’ll definitely be picking up a few  so I made sure to run and grab a few more. Typically polishes that claim to not be gel, but are gel-like can produce a ultra glossy look.

Application was smooth, and as for chip-wear  so far it lasted 3 days. Decent, since I switch polish so often anyways. I have my heart set on banana peel, pragmatic, VIP, my kryptonite and yours truly. What color would you choose?

olay fresh effects bb cream blended packaging

Olay Fresh Effects (BB Cream!) Skin Perfecting Tinted moisturizer with SPF 15 ($12.99)
BB cream have been all the rage and have paved the way for CC Cream (and soon DD creams) development. Olay’s Fresh Effects BB Cream offers 24 hour hydration with a hint of color. This perfector gives you a little bit of sunscreen, and is available in two different shades fair/light and light/medium. This is another product that I have previously purchased on my own and fell in love. I’ll be honest. It did take a week for me to decide but it became a staple in my routine once I bought it. I even did a glowing review of it you can find here. Because I already knew that I loved this product, I sent it to my Aunt to give you guys second opinion. Her review will be posted soon and will be linked up to this article after it’s done.

I love this BB cream because its the right price, it offers a little bit of tint so imperfections are blended slightly. It’s a great light makeup to wear if you just want to go to the market and don’t want to feel bare. Give it a week. I think you’ll fall in love too! It even prompted me to purchase another product from the fresh effects line, the shine minimizing cleanser. Review in the works and will be linked up here when done.

Goody Ouchless Ribbon Elastics ($3.99-$4.99)
Goody is a brand I have been familiar with since I was a child. I always buy goody elastics and have tried pretty much all of them. The clear little tiny ones, the super thick heavy duty ones, and even the sporty ones with the rubberized grip. They all work awesome, I only wish they had GPS devices embedded in them because I lose hair ties all the time. Now, they have ribbon elastics which I have seen from more expensive, indie brands. Did I mention more expensive?

I regret to report that I have probably lost two of these already. I wish I took a photo of all of them before I ripped the packaging and then lost them somewhere in the house. I like that these don’t leave dents in my hair when I take it down. I like that it doesn’t cut my circulation off when i put it on my wrist and almost looks like bracelet that belongs there. I wouldn’t recommend these for heavy activity if your bouncing around, it will get looser faster–but for everything else these are all good!

How did you other Influenster’s like the Sunkissed VoxBox? Did you fall in love with a specific item? I think my favorite was the nail polish! I was really happy with this one. All things I use. All things I would buy (again). All reasonably priced and easily accessible at Target and Walgreens. Two places I frequent for beauty buys.

Thanks, Influenster! I give the products and the entire voxbox a A++ and happily recommended all of these.

@Influenster sent me #kissdressnails

20120408-194750.jpg

Influensters Love VoxBox had an awesome mix of products for me to try, some being new to me and some I have already been a fan of. Kiss Nail Products was one I was immediately excited to try because I love doing my nails and they looked WAY better than the press on nails they sent me to try last month. I wouldn’t even put those things on. They even sent me a design that was really patterned–cheetah–but called “sexy”.

Kiss Dress, or Kiss’s version of sticker nail appliqués claim to last up to 10 days and come in a variety of colors and patterns to match your every mood. I’ve tried nail polish stickers before and have had mixed results depending on the brands, I was hoping this one would work very well because the strips looked thin and would adhere well. I should have known when it said “peel off slowly” to remove. Sigh. DID NOT LIKE THESE AS ALL.

You know why you need to peel these off? Because its not polish. Its a strip of plastic with sticky stuff on one side, literally making it a plastic sticker for your nails that you have to file to the shape of your nail. The only problem with these plastic strips is that they are WAY thicker than actual nail polish strips and don’t file off well. They also don’t bond to the nail so the “sticker” lifts eventually when you run your hands through your hair. That is the exact reason I didn’t want to put on the press on nails. I didn’t want the sticky stuff to snag on my hair and get caught.

The kiss nail strips lasted a whole ……………. 2 hours? Sad. Im guessing my nails just aren’t the right shape for these stickers. My nails are in good condition. They aren’t peeling or uneven, but they do have a high arc, meaning the nail bed is not flat across which may not let the sticker lie flat across the nail bed. Maybe its just too curved. Thats the only thing I can think off because i clean my nails beforehand with zoya prep nail polish remover and didn’t even wash my hands once after before the stickers started lifting. I tried to show you in the pictures just how bumpy it looked even after pressing and smoothing out forever.

not sure if you can see but they didnt lay flat at all

I know you can see it in this one though! see? bumpy. wavy. blah!

In my opinion it doesn’t matter how much these cost because they wouldn’t have lasted through a dinner if I had gone out that night. Aside from that, I did like the pattern. They were easy to apply, just not easy to file and stay on.

I’m going to link you guys to Patricia’s Blog, A Diva’s Perogative, because she tends to have better luck with these nail products than I have.

I use some other kiss nail products like their nail art kits or nail decals and think I’ll stick to just those for now.
