Dr. Scholls Active Series Review

Hey Loveys!

Influenster was nice enough to invite me to review the Dr. Scholls Active Series Voxbox. It specializes in the triple zone protection.

Ball of the Foot: there’s a thick ball of foot that distributes pressure throughout the push-off

Arch: A unique design improves transition of weight from landing to push-off

and the

Heel: heal pad absorbs impact yet is very responsive.

*SweatMAX technology helps eliminate odor.

According to the package, it says: During athletic activity, the foot is subject to the shock from impact of 2-3 times your body weigh with ever step. Active Series insoles reduce shock by 40% and, for those with Shin Splints (very very painful), Runner’s Knee and Plantar Fasciitis, helps relieve and prevent the pain.

INSTRUCTIONS:

1. Pull out the insole that came in your shoe (thats very very hard to do)

2. Place it on top of Active Series insoles with the heels lined up and both topcloths facing up

3. Trim the toe area along the line.  (I didn’t need to do that)

and 4. Slip Active Series insole into your shoe with fabric facing up .

This is the finished product:

My Opinion:

I liked these very much. It wasn’t hard to take off the other insoles though. I had to use a knife to take it off. haha Do use knife very carefully. I did feel a very big difference when I used them. Less pressure, especially after walking in them the whole day while I was at Knotts Berry Farm. I would advise anyone who loves to workout or run, should invest in these. And oh you should always replace insoles every 6 months or at the first signs of tear. Now that’s a first for me! I learned something new. haha That I had no idea you were supposed to do that.

Payless Shoes had a clearance on flip flops and jewelry. The Flip flops were originally $9.99 and on clearance for $5.99. If you text either SHOES or PAYLESS to 747-474 to get a coupon text for usually a 20% discount.

VEET EasyWax Electrical Roll-On Kit Review and How-to

Who would rather shave or wax in the summer? Think about it. If you shave you usually have to shave once a week or once every 2 weeks. Why do that  if you buy yourself an at-home wax and wax every 4 weeks. Complimentary of Influenster, they sent me the VEET EasyWax Electrical Roll-On Kit to use and review.

The kit includes:

1 Electrical warmer with base

1 Refill Legs & Body roll-on

24 Hair Removal Strips

4 Perfect Finish wipes

1 Instruction Sheet

and

1 Electrical cable

veet

Instructions:

You’re supposed to heat it up for about 20 minutes but from my experience it was more like an hour at least.

Then you test the wax on a piece of paper to see if the wax rolls. If it rolls easy, then its ready to use.

Roll the wax with the direction of the hair growth.

Apply the  wax strip in the same direction of the hair growth and make sure you run your fingers over the strips so they can be more efficient for the hair removal BUT leave a space for you to be able to hold the strip.

Hold your skin taut (tight), and hold the loose part of the strip and pull the opposite of the direction of the hair growth.

Then use the perfect Finish wipes to clean any left over wax and to sooth the skin.

CAUTION: After waxing, the skin might be a little red but that is normal.

My Input on this product:

I wish I could say I like this product but I honestly am not a fan of it. First of all, it took more like an hour to heat up instead of the 20 minutes.  I waxed my legs and they were decent, it wasn’t perfect but it’s better than shaving. For The Legs & body roll-on refill, I personally don’t think that works for the underarms.

I would definitely buy a refill of a different body part roll-on and test it out especially for the underarms.

DISCLOSURE: I received this product complimentary for testing and review purposes from Influenster. 🙂

Colgate Optic White Review

Have you ever went looking for one of the greatest teeth whitening kits that don’t break the bank or take any extra time from your busy schedule?

Then I have the perfect solution for you. haha 😉 its the Colgate Optic White Regimen. I got it complimentary of Influenster but this is my own honest opinion about the product.

There’s three steps to the regimen.

1. the toothbrush

2. the toothpaste

3. the mouthwash

cws

The Toothbrush!

This brush was pretty different from other brushes I’ve seen before. the bristles are a mix of light blue and teal green. Those are the ones that more than likely polish your teeth as you brush them. The reason I feel like I’ve never seen a brush like this is because it has “whitening cups” which are meant to keep the toothpaste in and effectively take off the surface stains. No one likes that coffee/soda stains am i right? haha

toothbrush

The toothpaste:

I’m a fan of it definitely. It has a fresh minty scent and I always feel cleaner after using it. 🙂 After using it for 5 days straight I started to see a difference in my teeth and who doesn’t like to see that? haha if only they could have a gum flavor that strong.

(that’s how much i love it, it’s used pretty bad hahaha)

The mouthwash:

This was my favorite part of the regimen! It has this weird foaming sensation when you put it in your mouth. haha it’s totally refreshing and you can always know when it’s working cuz you’ll feel a tingling feeling.

I see a difference from before I used it and now and it’s awesome. I can’t wait to finish it and start all over. haha

Palmolive Fresh Infusion Review!

So i got 3 Palmolive Fresh Infusion from Influenster to try out and let me tell you….i love it!
yes it may not exactly clean the dishes very well but you can also use them for other things. i used it to clean my makeup brushes and it worked pretty good. not only they cleaned the brushes but now i have a lime basil scent to my brushes. who wouldn’t like that?!

i got the lime basil, ginger white tea, and lemon thyme. my absolute favorite would be the lime basil. it just gives me that exotic scent of a cocktail. weird i know haha but that’s how i would describe it.

you could buy this at Walmart and here’s the link to the Palmolive site! 🙂  http://bit.ly/VMwX1V
and the Influenster review page would be:  http://bit.ly/101WrXn

I gave my mom the ginger white tea and she loved it as well. its better than the boring ol’ scent of cleaning dishes haha.

hope you guys like my review! 🙂
until next time 😉

Disclaimer: I did get this complimentary of Influnester.
