It’s a couple weeks post-Valentine’s Day, but I was lucky enough to receive a delightful and complimentary “sweet” treat from Influenster to try out. (Want to be an “Influenster,” too? Let me know, I still have some invitations I can share!) It included so many great products, and I’ve been busily testing/trying them recently. Where do I start? I adore chocolate, so I’ll be honest, the first thing I opened was the HERSHEY’s kisses. Love the Valentine’s Day colors of pink, red and silver. They’re currently sitting in a cute bowl on my counter and look very “spring-ish!” And, I actually made cookies with them – perfect accessory to a cookie. Looking for recipe inspiration? The HERSHEY’s website has some great ones!
I’ve unluckily been hit with a nasty cold over the last week, and warm drinks have never sounded so good. Thankfully, I’ve been able to try my simply indulgent Creme Caramel Red Rose tea. And once I finished those tea bags, I went out and bought more. I mean, Creme Caramel? It’s like dessert in a mug. Yum. Bonus: my cold seems to be retreating. Coincidence?
My Kiss Looks So Natural “faux lashes” were great fun to try. True story: I hadn’t used lashes before as I have pretty long natural ones. But, it was fun to try these and they really were a great addition. They just made my existing lashes seem that much fuller and were totally natural looking. Not fake at all. I highly recommend these lashes if you’re in the market!
While I worked to beautify myself, I excitedly used the Boots Botanics Ionic Clay Mask one evening. I surprised my hubby when I came downstairs with the dark green mask on my face, but after 15 minutes, I washed it off and then truly had some of the softest skin I’d ever felt! Best part is that I’ve used it several times over the last 2 weeks and can definitely tell my face is healthier, softer and more kissable. And since I have wavy hair, I’ve been thrilled to use the Frizz Ease 3 Day Straight spray. I spray it on while my hair is still wet and then dry it as I usually do. It seems to stay more straight and a bit more shiny than usual. Can’t beat it!
And, as a little bit of a surprise for the hubby, Influenster included Vaseline’s Men Spray Lotion. For some reason, he seems to be really into this. I think it’s likely because it doesn’t have a strong scent, he can easily just spray it on, versus having to rub on lotion, and it’s keeping his skin soft. But, whatever the reason, clearly he enjoys it – I catch him spraying it all over every time he gets out of the shower. I might have to steal some myself, just to try it out for myself. Shhh, don’t tell!
Suffice it to say, I truly did “adore” the J’adore Vox Box from Influenster this month – and I’m already hooked on so many new products!
