Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream

I received this product free from Influenster for testing purposes! All opinions are my own!

I have dry and sensitive skin, and I’ve been loving this product! My dermatologist actually recommended Cetaphil, as an overall great brand, not a specific product, so I was really excited when I received this! I’m not positive if it’s for your body or face, but I’ve been using it on both. I can really see a difference when I use it. The cream is a great texture, and doesn’t leave your skin feeling oily. The product is also fragrance free, which I prefer and appreciate!

I will definitely be checking out Cetaphil’s other products, and getting a bigger size of this!

Curel Itch Defense Spray Review

Curel Itch Defense Instant Soothing Moisturizing Spray

I received this product free from Influenster for testing purposes! All opinions are my own!

Here’s a little backstory, I generally have dry skin, but for some reason it gets worse when I’m asleep. I’ll wake up from scratching my legs nonstop in my sleep, which can be painful at times. I’ve tried various other lotions, even hydrocortisone cream, but it never fully takes the itching away and sometimes even cause my legs to hurt worse.

When I received this product I was skeptical about the “instant relief” claims on the bottle. The first day I received it, I woke up in the night itching. I was amazed when I sprayed the lotion onto my legs and felt instant relief. The itching was gone! I wondered how long it would last, and how soon I would be waking up again, but I didn’t.

I use this product on a daily basis now, and I’ve definitely seen a change in my legs! I’ve only woken up one itching since I started using this product (towards the start of using it). My skin is very sensitive and after shaving it usually itches as well, but I just spray this on after shaving and BOOM! itch free moisturized skin! The back of the bottle actually says “Curel moisturizers work at the source of dryness to help replenish skin’s ceramide levels, not just relieving symptoms, but actually, over time, preventing symptoms from reoccurring.” I noticed a difference before I read this on the back of the bottle.

This is definitely personal preference, but the only con I can think of is the smell. It reminds me of what orange cough syrup tastes like. The smell is completely gone after a minute though!

This product is amazing, and I give it 5 out of 5! Other than hydrating dry, itchy skin for relief, it’s allergist tested, dermatologist recommended, and has no added fragrance.

Celestial Seasonings Candy Cane Lane Review/Taste Test

Celestial Seasonings Candy Cane Lane Decaf Green Tea, excited to try this flavor. @Influenster #CelestialTea

Celestial Seasonings Candy Cane Lane Decaf Green Tea

I received a sample of this tea complimentary from Influenster for testing/review purposes. I received 2 tea bags to try out. All opinions are my own.

I extremely dislike coffee, but I do like tea! Normally I stick with a normal Chai Tea Latte, or a more fruity flavored tea. When I saw this tea in my box, I was very intrigued. I wasn’t sure how I feel about green tea or peppermint flavored green tea for that matter. When I opened the package it came in, you could definitely smell the peppermint, it was a little overwhelming at first! It was very strong, but I went ahead with it anyways. I was presently suprised at the taste of this tea…I actually like it! When I was brewing it, it actually smelled like Vanilla, which is one of my favorite scents! There was a bit of vanilla flavoring too it as well, which I really enjoyed.

Final Thoughts: This is definitely not my favorite tea, but I did enjoy it! I like how Celestial Seasonings came up with a more original flavor, rather than just the normal ‘expected’ flavors. This tea has made me realize I should broaden my tea range, and get out of my comfort zone of just drinking Chai Tea.

Boots No7 Protect & Perfect ADVANCED Serum Review

Boots no7 Protect & Perfect Advanced Serum! @influenster #getADVANCED

I received a sample of the Boots No7 Protect & Perfect ADVANCED Serum complimentary from Influenster for review/testing purposes. All opinions are my own.

Keep in mind, I only received a .1 fl oz sample compared to the full size of 1 oz. I don’t believe I got to experience the full effects of the product because results won’t show up within a few days. With this product most people said they saw results after 2 weeks to a month.

I have very sensitive skin, and I’m always nervous when trying a new lotion or skin care product I’m going to put on my face. I’ve always been interested in trying some products from the Boots line, but for some reason just never have. Honestly, I think it’s because when I’m at Target, I’m expecting drugstore prices. Boots is a more expensive line, but after trying the sample of this product, I’m definitely going in to browse the rest of the products and pick one out!

I used this serum twice daily, in the morning after washing my face and at night after my skincare routine. It is hypo-allergenic, and didn’t make my skin break out or cause any irritation. It’s lightweight and can be worn under makeup. I did notice my skin feeling softer and looked a little brighter.

Overall, I did like this serum, and I am definitely considering purchasing the full size! This serum is supposed to be anti-aging, but since I’m only 23, I would use it as more of a preventative measure. I think it is a quality serum, and an amazing value for the price!

Rimmel London Scandaleyes Eyeliner + Makeup Remover Review

I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing/review purposes!
ALL opinions are my own!

Let me start by saying Rimmel is one of my favorite drug store brands, and I think they are severely underrated! They have some amazing products for a great price. Some of which I even use in my daily makeup routine!

Love Rimmel products! Excited to try this Rimmel Scandaleyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal! @influenster #Rimmel

Rimmel Scandaleyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal Eyeliner: $4.49

I usually have trouble with eyeliner smearing on my waterline, but this liner is a game changer for me. It’s super creamy and pigmented, and actually LASTS! I am definitely going to be trying more colors. The Rimmel Scandaleyes shadow sticks are absolutely amazing, as well as the felt tip eyeliner! So easy for making a wing!

SO excited to try this #Rimmel Oil-free GENTLE makeup remover! Even removes waterproof makeup. It's super inexpensive for how big of a bottle it is! @influenster

Rimmel Gentle Eye Make Up Remover: $7.49

I didn’t even know Rimmel was coming out with an eye makeup remover until I saw it in my box! I absolutely love it! A lot of liquid makeup removers leave an oily feeling on my skin, but this doesn’t. It just leaves my skin clean, and actually makes it feel soft! It easily gets off all my makeup, even waterproof. You get a pretty good amount of product as well! I like using this at night with a cotton pad to remove my makeup, or with a q-tip for touch ups! Good job on this Rimmel!

Ecotools Sleek + Shine Finisher Hair Brush! Super excited to try this out, I love Ecotools as a brand! #LoveMyEcoHairBrush @influenster

EcoTools Hair Brush: $10.99

The first makeup brushes I actually purchased were Ecotools, and I still love and use them to this day! They also make some fabulous falsh lashes, that I happen to be wearing right now! This hair brush goes along with the rest of their products, amazing! My hair is easily knotted, and this brush gets through them no problem. The bristles also do leave my hair feeling softer and shinier!

Super excited to test you this inexpensive NYC Expert Last Lip Color Sugar Plum 418! #influenster #SugarPlum

NYC (New York Color) Expert Last Lip Color in Sugar Plum: $1.99

NYC is one of the most affordable brands at the drug store, and they have some products I absolutely love! I’ve never tried the lipsticks, and I’m SOOO happy I got this! This lipstick can be worn more sheer, or is easily built up! It goes on really smooth, and feels nice on the lips. It also gives off a great amount of shine, and lasts a good time. Not to mention, IT’S ONLY $1.99! Seriously, you can’t get any better than that! I’m going to purchase some more colors.

Boots no7 Protect & Perfect Advanced Serum! @influenster #getADVANCED

Boots No7 Protect & Perfect Advanced Serum: $22.99

This is the product I received a sample size of. I would have loved to receive a full size! I’d been wanting to try a product from this line for a long time, whenever I’m at Target I always stop and look. Since it was just a sample size, I didn’t get a chance to experience the full effects. I do like the product from what I tried though, it left my skin looking and feeling better. I’ll have to try the full size one day!

McCormick Gourmet Thyme! @Influenster

McCormick Gourmet Thyme: $4.79

McCormick spices is the brand of spices that fills my cupboard. They are always quality and a great price. There’s not much else to say about a spice!

Fruit Vines Bites in STRAWBERRY, my fav. @Influenster #SweetSide

Fruit Vines Bites in Strawberry: $1.28-$1.79

Strawberry is actually my favorite flavor for…well, pretty much anything! I’ve been looking for some better things to snack on, and these are great! They’re delicious!! They are also pretty affordable, and you can buy them in 2 oz single serving bags!

Celestial Seasonings Candy Cane Lane Decaf Green Tea, excited to try this flavor. @Influenster #CelestialTea

Celestial Seasonings Candy Cane Lane Decaf Green Tea:

Aren’t those polar bears just the cutest thing ever?! I have a Keurig, so normally I just buy the K-Cups that sound appealing to me. Usually that doesn’t include any type of green tea. This tea actually suprised me, I really like it! I’m going to have to look into some more flavors from Celestial Seasonings.

Playtex® Sport® Fresh Balance™ Review!

Playtex Sport Fresh Balance Tampons

Retail: $3.99-$4.99

I received this product complimentary from Influenster for review/testing purposes, ALL opinions are my own!

Playtex® Sport® Fresh Balance™

 

@Influenster @PlaytexSportandGentleGlide #PlayOn

 

When I received this product in my SpringFling VoxBox, I was excited to test these out! Since I’m not big into sports, I never felt like I needed these, but I was wrong! Although these would be great if you were playing hard sports, they’re also perfect for the average woman! I wear them when I know I’m going to be moving around a lot, or when I don’t want to worry about leaking (like when I’m wearing white pants!). They’re perfect for every day activities like hiking, swimming, or jogging! The 360 degree protection plus odor shield definitely works and is great technology!

These tampons contain FlexFit, which is interlocking fibers that work quickly to trap leaks! OdorShield, which is technology designed to neutralize odors. Contoured Applicator, for comfortable and precise placement.

I would say that Playtex got it right on the ball (haha) with these! They definitely work and do exactly what they claim to do, and all girls can appreciate the contoured applicator!

I would recommend these to all women, whether they play sports or not!
