Q-tips® Precision Tips™

Here is another product I received in my Something Blue Vox Box.

I never knew that Q-Tips could get any better. They can be used in a variety of ways; from beauty related to cleaning around the house. The possibilities are endless.

So far I love to use these to touch up the nail polish that tends to get on my cuticle area and touching up my lipstick and occasional mascara/eyeliner mishaps.

These are perfect because of the pointed tip. It really allows you to get straight to the problem, where as using your fingers can just make it a bigger mess or worse spread bacteria. I received these in a perfect travel case. I can always carry them in my purse for on the go touch ups.

I cannot wait to see what other messes these Q-Tips will get me out of.

This product can be found at many drugstores and supermarkets.

I received this product complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes.

Dr. Scholl’s® For Her Ball of Foot Cushions

Here is another product I received in my Something Blue Vox Box from Influenster.

This product was not new to me. When I was in college these inserts saved me on numerous nights when I’d go to the club with my girlfriends. However, when I got pregnant I had to ditch my high heels for sneakers and flats. After I had my son, I was used to wearing flat shoes that I forgot about how much of a life saver these cushions were. As I ventured into my career and started going to more dances I would always make sure to bring flats to change into. I hated that I had so many beautiful high heels gathering dust in my closet. I went to my local store and as the frugal mom that I am, I opted for the cheapest thing. Unfortunately they did not work as well as the Dr. Scholl’s. So I stuck with my loyal flats and Walmart “Sperry’s.”

When I received these gel cushions from Influenster, I was thanking the foot gods or Dr. Scholl’s really. These cushions are heaven! I just wish they were easily transferred to other pairs of shoes. The adhesive just isn’t the same if you switch shoes. One tip is to make sure to clean the sole of the shoe you are planning to place the cushions in. This allows for the cushion’s adhesive to stay in place.

Here’s some technical information for how these cushions work:

Helps prevent ball of foot pain
Immediate Massaging Gel™ comfort for the ball of your foot
Only ball of foot product made with unique FabuSTEP® gel
Prevents toe scrunch
Stays firmly in place
Removable without damage to your shoes
Discreetly fits all women’s shoes

You can find this at most drugstores and supermarkets. They retail for about $5.99.

Luster NOW! Instant Whitening Toothpaste

I recently received the Something Blue VoxBox from Influenster and one of the products in the box was the Luster NOW! Instant Whitening Toothpaste. This is the first product I tested and I’ve used it everyday since I have received this box.

I was a bit hesitant about using this product because I was afraid it would taste bleachy or make my mouth feel very sensitive, but I figured its always nice to try out a new product. Which is why I love Influenster. Thankfully the toothpaste has a nice minty flavor which leaves your mouth feeling clean and your smile looks brand spanking new. As for the sensitivity, I’ve used it everyday and my mouth feels exactly as it did before I started testing the product a couple of weeks ago.

Here is some technical information from Luster’s website that explains more about the product and why I do not feel any sensitivity:

✦ Instantly whitens teeth after just one brushing
✦ Contains Bluverite™, a propriety formula that creates the optical effect of whiter teeth
✦ Removes surface stains with daily use
✦ Gentle on teeth and safe for dental restorations
✦ Perfect for when your smile needs an instant boost

Luster has a variety of whitening products starting at affordable prices. Check out their products by clicking here.

This product can be found at most supermarkets and drugstores and retails for $7.99.

Thank you.

May Mascara Influenster Box

I just learned that I am receiving another box from Influenster. This one is going to be a mascara product. However, the brand is unknown. I would love to try Revlon’s new Lash Potion, but I think it might be something from Rimmel. I’ve never tried a Rimmel product so I am excited to see what it may be. I am currently using CoverGirl’s Clump Crusher and Maybelline’s Rocket. It will be interesting to see how this new mascara will compete with these two since these are the best mascaras I’ve ever tried. So stay tuned.

The Taste

So if you’ve been reading, you’d know that I love to watch many different TV shows. I probably shouldn’t get into more series, but I can’t help it. Influenster asked its members to watch ABC’s new show “The Taste.” It’s on at 9|8c, in case you were wondering. I was kind of skeptical about watching another food competition show, but I figured I’d give it a try.

I found myself cheering for different contestants and intrigued by the blind taste test. Especially the fact that a coach could possibly send someone from their own team home. The show is solely based on the taste.

If you’re going to watch the show be sure to eat dinner beforehand or have snacks handy. This show will definitely have you craving food.

So here is the latest product that Influenster has sent me. (I almost typed scent instead of sent becuase I am already thinking of the scents.)  Anyways, I really do love these dish soaps and I don’t say that often. I mean dish soap used to be just dish soap. Now whenever I pour this soap in I breathe in this wonderful aroma of lime and basil. It calms me down as I am doing the dishes. I just turn on Pandora and the time passes by very quickly. You can find this product at Walmart.

Influenster

I signed up for Influenster sometime last year and I am really satisified with this service.  I signed up thinking that I wouldn’t get a “VoxBox” for a couple of months, but not even a couple of weeks later and they had alraedy asked me to take a survey. Next thing I know, I received an e-mail notifying me that I should be receiving a box with a dental product. Who knew it would be Crest Whitestrips. Do you know how expensive those things are? I’ve never tried them for that specific reason.  However, thanks to Influenster I was given that opportunity to do just that. So I took the 20 Day Challenge and was mighty happy with the results.

So this post is for those who may be interested in signing up. Don’t be discouraged. I’ve heard people say that they don’t want to sign up for many reasons. The surveys don’t take up to much of your time and it’s fairly easy to spread the word of the products they send you if you’re active on FB, Twitter, Instagram, or YouTube.  If I, a first time mom, can do it, I’m sure you can.

I know I have really been neglecting my Tumblr. I am going to try to use it more often. It seems that this is the place where I can really say what I want away from the people I know.

Almost…

I graduate this December and the days are passing by very slowly. I’ve already taken my exit exam and passed. I’m at the point where my classes feel pointless and it makes it even worse that I have an adorable baby boy at home that absolutely do not want to leave. I can’t wait to graduate, but then I don’t want to have to go through looking for a job and dropping my son off at day care. Since he was born (about three & a half months ago) he hasn’t been in day care. I spend every minute that I’m not in class with him. It’s gonna be difficult for me when that day comes. I’m hoping that my boyfriend (baby daddy) gets a job where I wouldn’t have to work, but then I’d feel like I’m not putting my degree to use. So in a way I want to graduate, but I don’t.
