Although I get a lot of boxes , samples, and freebies, I am always excited to hear that I have been picked to receive one of the Influenster VoxBox boxes!

Based on the quiz that you fill out when they”pre-select” you for this box, you can generally get a pretty good idea of what’s in the box. Of course, you don’t know for sure until it comes, but I had an idea of what to expect.
This is the first time that I got 3 Voxes at the same time.
After spending 3 minutes antagonizing over which was my shade turns out I was wrong, the shade that I received from Influenster was wrong…. Now I can’t truly be mad at the Maybelline or Influenster because we had to take a survey and guess based on the pictures provided. Of course they could’ve been lighter on the survey than my skin tone. What I didn’t know what this is not a new product, but it is a products that was coming out with new shades (which is always good for us WOC)
The foundation that I ended up getting was Matte + Poreless Version in 332 Golden Caramel. So I am nothing if not resourceful. And contacted Influenster and a new bottle was shipped to me. I probably should say that I don’t normally wear foundation, partly because I will probably only wear it once or twice a month…and honestly I don’t think that it makes a big difference in the way that my skin looks.
So part of the requirements of this review I had to do a Before and After. So I did, and here are the results: I will say that my skin looks healthier, more even and seems to have a glow on it…overall I’m, pleased (and shocked) with the results… not a major difference but a subtle difference. I like this product. I got a lot of complements that day…. and that’s always a positive.
The thing that I hate about sports bras is the dreaded uni-boob, My local Wal-Mart, grocery store, bank and Starbucks are literally a hop, skip, and a jump from my gym, so more often than not after I go to the gym I will run errands before I head home and change, it’s bad enough that I have to deal with uni-boob at the jump (where it seems to be socially acceptable) but to deal with it in public is a no-no. I didn’t even realized that I qualified for the Virtual Vox, but was extremely happy when I did.
So I got a 40% off coupon that I could redeem at Target for a C9 Sports Bra. And was happy to see that a lot of the bras had cups and adjustable backs. The only problem that I had was trying to figure out which one I wanted, honestly there were so many to chose from, and all of them were cute. And since my coupon only allowed me to get one at the discounted price, I HAD to chose.
The following day I tested out the sports bra, the fit was good, a little snug, but that was expected since I’m between sizes at the moment, if I had gone a size up it would have been way too loose. so since I’m back in the gym maybe I’ll lose a few pounds and the fit will be perfect (Why do we always say that?) The think that I liked the most is that the uni-boob was gone. I worked out and ran an errand with two defined boobs, and it looked like I was wearing a regular bra. The hold of the bra was medium, I wasn’t bouncing everywhere, but it was comfortable enough to go through my workout and not feel constricted in any way. Overall I really liked this sports bra and will defiantly go back to Target to get more.
I generally like to stick with what I know… I like stick deodorant.. I don’t know why I just do. So low and behold Influenster sent me a some to try…which is great… cause seriously I was running out; but I gotta admit I was slightly disappointed when I realized that it was a spray. I began to conjure up thoughts of a wet underarm.. NOT COOL!.I was pleasantly surprised that I like it! When I sprayed it under my arm, it dried immediately. The scent was pleasant and I have had more than one person ask me what was I wearing because it smelled so good. When I told them it was my deodorant, you should’ve witnessed the look of surprise on their faces!
I like not having to check my clothing for deodorant stains. No stain or residue is left on my clothing like I experienced with the other deodorants I have previously used
So walk on in to CV and pick up yourself a dry spray by Dove, Dove Men, Degree, Degree Men, or Axe and join me in #TryDry. What do you get for trying it? No, white marks…
Until Next Time ,
