Influenster Fierce Voxbox

Happy Monday loves!

Hope you all had a great weekend.

I think by now you’ve heard of Influenster by now, but if you haven’t, its a review type of website and if you’re lucky enough you can get a freebie box. It always changes from foods, beauty, fashion or even a mixture of both! Every time you finish these badges, you can get qualified for another Voxbox.

I was lucky enough to get the Fierce Voxbox which included:

Shea Moisture Argan Oil & Almond Milk Shampoo and Blow Out Creme

I love using Shea Moisture and trying out new products from their line. The shampoo and blow out are both made from Argan Oil, organic shea butter and almond milk. It smells so good! Retail price for the blow out creme is $10.99 and the shampoo is $8.99

Sinful Colors Kandee Johnson Anime “Kiss Goodnight”

I really can’t get over this color! Kandee Johnson was the first youtube beauty guru I ever watched. So to see her progress and collab with Sinful Colors, I was ecstatic that this came in the VoxBox! I’ve seen them sold at Walgreens for $1.99.

Madam C.J. Walker Softening & Silkening Brassica Seed Oil

It’s a lightweight hair oil that smooths and creates terrific shine for heat-styled hair. It has a light blend of spun sugar and red velvet cream to refresh hair. I love to use this for my baby hairs that just can’t keep calm! This hair oil retails for $26 and can find it at Sephora.

ISSE 2014 Haul

Hey Lovies!

I hope everyone is doing great. Sorry for being so MiA, with so many things going on recently I’ve been swamped. From getting sick, family dilemmas to starting work!

So this past weekend January 25-27, the ISSE (International Salon and Spa Expo) 2014 came upon us in the Long Beach Convention Center, CA.    I went on Saturday and felt so overwhelmed (having this be my first time to any such expo) haha. I did some shopping but didn’t break the bank! haha What I love about these expos is that there’s so many discounts and so much to see. Here’s a sneak peak to what I splurged on. 🙂

I always hear so much hype about the Crown Brushes and I had to give it a try! It’s cheap and from what I can tell, its not bad at all. I got the IB132 Stiff Brow Brush. http://www.crownbrush.us/

J.Cat Cosmetics: I never had heard of this company before but when I saw the prices, I was shocked! Some of the products were 3 for $6 or 3 for $9 on other selected products. I got the 3 for $6. http://jcatbeauty.com/

*Roll It Up Auto Lip Liner in “Puce” ( I actually bought it thinking it was a nude eyeliner) But I contacted them and they said it’s perfectly safe to use as an eyeliner. Score!

*Roll It Up Auto Eye Liner in “Bulk Black” Water Resistant

*Flying Solo Eye Shadow in “138 Down Low”

I then got some freebies just buy walking around and random people passing samples out. That’s another great thing about these types of expos. 😀 I got a Poppin Hair Clip, a nail filer on one side and the other side is a mirror and a few hair samples from Amika: Oil Treatment and a Nourishing Mask.

I hope you all liked this haul and I’m looking forward to trying out these products and reviewing them!

Until next time! 🙂

 

 

 

 

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. 🙂

Bikini Soft Smooth Shave Oil Review

A couple of weeks ago, Bikini Soft Smooth approached me to do a review on their shave oil. I’ve tried it now for a few weeks and its a pretty good concept. There’s two parts to it.

1. the shave oil

2. razor saver oil

The shave oil:

the ingredients are  Safflower Oil, Sunflower Oil, Grapeseed Oil, Jojoba Oil, Vitamin E, Aloe, Avocado Oil, Sandalwood Oil, Olive Oil, Citrus Oil and Astaxanthin.

I like the idea of all the ingredients being natural.

How to Use:

You wet the area you’re about to shave. Then you massage 8-10 drops into your moist hands. Massage the oil onto the area you want to shave. Shave as usual and make sure to wet the razor more than a few times. Rinse and towel dry.

I actually put a little bit of eos shaving cream after shaving it with the oil and it comes out pretty clean. No snags. No prickly feeling after shaving.

My favorite place to use the shave oil would be my underarms to be honest. Who likes shaving and then feeling that prickly feeling when you move around. Exactly I doubt anyone one does.

The Razor Saver Oil:

Its ingredients are Sunflower Oil, Safflower Oil and Oilve Oil. The great part about this is that it’s all natural!

How to Use:

After you finish shaving, clean the razor with water. Then you pat dry the razor. (make sure you pat it softly unless you want your razor to snag on your towel). Lastly you apply the saver oil to the razor blades and lubricating strip if you have one.

Overall, I love this product. It helps with the irritation and its a clean shave. Who doesn’t like that? 🙂

Oh and I almost forgot! The awesome part about this company is that it helps the environment. You can mail them your old ragged-y razors that you don’t use anymore and they recycle it!
