Summer Beauty Voxbox Testing:Part 2

Okay! So I have had the chance to try almost everything now. Onward!

The Sally Hansen Nail and Cuticle Creme : was kind of a bust. The same night I used it, I got COVERED in hives. I will warn that I do have sensetive skin so I cant say im ever surprised when this happens. It doesnt mean it is a bad product. But it goes to show you that testing in small patches is a good idea with ANY product.
I also will say that my hands were indeed VERY soft and moisturized. ;)

The Tampax and Always Radiant Collection : Has yet to actually be tested, I mention in the link what I think so far, and the pouch is def adorable... more in a little while!

The Clear Scalp Therapy Shampoo and Conditioner : ROCKKKKSSSS!!!! Ten Billion stars, I would already have purchased full size bottles if I didnt JUST get shampoo and conditioner before this. I can tell my hair feels nicer, is stronger, and breaks less. I love it. I just will say you MUST rinse well. <3333333 !

The Hawaiian Tropics Sunscreen : I have yet to fully try. I will be laying out sometime this week though.... Until next time!!

* Once again I must mention all products listed here and in linked post were sent to me courtesy of www.Influenster.com and all product companies free of charge for review. My opinions are my own and were not paid for by the companies. ;)

I dont know if I posted here, but I am a (kinda new) Avon rep! I have been working on getting things here and there for myself to show people that avon isnt just for your grandma or little kids. In fact I just got a new perfume from them that I absolutely love. I tend to go for scents like Aquolina Pink sugar... Avons "Secrets to Keep" is a new scent thats right up that sweet alley. I'll probably start posting looks on and off using avon to show you that it can be for anyone!

Like avon but dont have a rep? you can order offline from me! =]

Summer Beauty Voxbox: Unboxing and Starting to test

SO! I finally got my box! In this post you will see pictures of each item (mainly closeups of the labels) and a little review of the ones I already tried. Because I couldnt help munching and putting on some nail polish!!
Please remember that all these items were sent to me courtesy of Influenster for testing and reviewing, free of charge. I will list the retail prices with the photos and item description.

Quaker Soft Baked Bar in Banana Nut Bread: $3.29 for a package of bars
- I did try this item, and didn't really care for it. It was okay, and maybe would have been better warmed up. I prefer Quakers oatmeal to go bars over this, however I did like the big chunks of pecan and almond on top. It gave a nice crunch to the chewy bar.

Sally Hansen Nails and Cuticles Hand Creme: $5.99 for a full size bottle, bottle given to me was sample size
- I have no real opinion on this yet, I did try a bit on the back of my hand but haven't really used it yet. More on this another time!

Tampax and Always Radiant Collection: Prices vary per box and item
- Though I haven't tried this yet I already love some of it. The sleeves that the tampons are in are more like fabric than before (less noisy!) and have a little sticker to open and reseal it, so its more discreet even in the trash. This came with 2 tampons, 3 liners and a pad all in a cute zipper bag (shown through the window of the picture). I will have a more thorough review later on in my second post, and pictures of everything. I will say now I will not be testing the pad, not only do I not care for pads, It is scented... and I am allergic to scented feminine products.

Clear Scalp and Hair Beauty Therapy Shampoo and Conditioner: $4.99-$5.99 for 12.7-12.9 oz bottles
- I received a nicely sized trial bottle of each, this product was a "based on demographics" bonus. I have yet to try them but will start tonight! They claim to nourish the scalp for strong beautiful hair from root to tip. We shall see *eyebrow wiggle*

Hawaiian Tropic Silk Hydration Lotion Sunscreen SPF 30: $8.99 for 6 oz bottle. Available in SPF 12, 30, 50
- I have tried a bit on my arm, its a little too... fragranced for me. But its non greasy and is definitely nice and silky! I will have a better review later on ;)

Sally Hansen Magnetic Nail Polish in Polar Purple: $9.99- WOOOO SO EXCITED! I have always wanted to try magnetic polish. And this is probably the most inexpensive one I have seen. And.... IT WORKS! After the product picture I have photos of my crappy manicure I gave myself. The polish was wonderful; but I didn't clean it up well haha. It was a quickie just to test it.

The product photo doesn't show every true to color, but neither do the mani photos! This shows too red, nails show too blue. Either way, the color is lushhhh. and it was super easy! Paint a base coat on, one coat of color and let dry completely. Prepare by having your hand on something flat (away from fans) and the magnet close. Paint a coat on one nail and quickly hold the magnet over top the nail as close as you can (using the guide at the top) I found holding it for longer than the allotted ten seconds made for a darker and richer design. I did 30 seconds. Voila! This is without a topcoat, but I recommend one for maximum shine and reflectiveness.

Thumb, messy but great!

Whole hand, again messy, but awesome! and fyi, its like tiger eye, when you move your fingers the design moves. its so neat!!

Well thats all for todays post, give me a few weeks for the rest. I get my wisdom teeth out Tuesday =(
In the meantime, sign up with Influenster!!
