Influenster Jolly Vox Box

I love getting new things to try out! I am not going to deny it: of course I am even more excited when the items are free.
Thanks to Influentser I got qualified for the Jolly Vox Box and got to try quite a few items for free.

The box came to me right before the Holidays, so just in time as the name suggested. he contents of this box were: Puffs Plus lotion as a handy “put in your purse” size pack, a NYC eyeshadow trio, A mini Ducktape Roll with a blue/ white flowery design, Rimmel London Show Off lip Laquer and a full box of Skinny Cow divine filled chocolates Candy. Here are all contents:

As we recently got back from our vacation, I brought a cold with me and the Puffs plus lotion were very welcome. i have Puffs in my purse throughout the whole winter and really noticed how much softer these with lotion are. I was worried they would smell strong but I did not notice a scent…then again I did not smell much.

I was also super excited about the eyeshadow Trio. Unfortunately the colors were not very strong for me, even while using primer. The colors look gorgeaous for a cat eye look in the actual pan but on my eyelids they barely had an effect. I do wera neutrals thanks to the Naked 2 palette a lot and might be spoiled.

Next there is the Ducktape. Honestly, I first want’s sure what to do with it but I am crafty and there is Pinterest. Just look up Ducktape flowers, that might be one of my next projects. I will post about it. In any case I think the size is really handy compared to the usual big roll and will be great for srating. There are also tons of fun designs out!

Then there is the Rimmel London Show Off Lip Laquer. I believe the color is 401 Aurora- That’s at least what’s on the label. The color is a beautiful Raspberry color. WHile it doesn’t last super long, it didn’t feel sticky and had a nice scent to it. It also fits perfect in my litle to-go makeup clutch. By now I have three of them, one per most used purse.

Last but not least there is the yummy Skinny Cow Treat. Looking at the box I thought it’s filled with caramel (of course I didn’t read it) but it’s peanut butter and delicious! I am a big fan of the Skinny Cow candy bars and this little chocolate treat will be on my shopping list as well. They come packed in little packs of three and are highly recommended, unless you have certain allergies, in that case please don’t eat them. I will not be responsible for your hives!

Anyhow, I was excited to be selected for the box and I think that Influenster has done great selecting products for us to try for free. Please know that these are my honest oppinions. I got the box half a month back so I had a chance to really try the contents. To become an influenster yourself you can sign up at http://www.influenster.com

BzzAgent -LUNA™ mini campaign

 I have been involved with BzzAgent for almost a year now. If you are not familiar with Bzzagent, it is a word-of-mouth program where you get products to test, most of the time complimentary and in return give your honest opinions and share feedback as much as you can. I don’t blog about many campaigns because in the past I mainly had food related items. You can find more information here: www.bzzagent.com

Last month they started sending out invites for the LUNA™ mini campaign where you get to try the device from FOREO for a great price. My husband and I both agreed and got our Bzzkits two days ago. I received a light pink LUNA™ mini and his is gray. We already use the Clarisonic mia 2 at home and this gives us a chance to compare the two. This is the Bzzkit that I received in the mail:

Here is some information about the LUNA™ mini that I am copying out of the booklet it came with:

  • It is recommended to use it twice daily for a minute each time.
  • It promotes visibly brighter & healthier looking skin in just 3 days.
  • The device has a 2 year limited warranty an you do not need to purcase replacement brushes
  • It is suitable for all skin types
  • It is fully water proof so you can use it in the shower or bath
  • it has an integrated battery and comes with a USB cord to charge
  • The nanabrasive silicon brush promises a more hygienic solution than other sonic brushes

This all sounded promising to me and I have heard from other people using the Luna that they like varying it with the Clarisonic. I have started using the LUNA™ mini yesterday both morning and evening and will post again in a week  how I truly feel about the device. My first impression is that it is a good deal since you do not have to purchase replacement heads. It is small so you can travel with it. So far it also looks like it is easy to clean. 

Update: I have used the device for a full month and love it in compination with the Clarisonic. I believe my Mia2 removes makeup better, but I love how easy the LUNA™ mini is to clean and use and it holds the charge longer.

 

Meanwhile, Bzzagent and FOREO gave us codes to share. You can use the code for 35% off your order at www.foreo.com until 1-31-2014. The code is 6ZFXWH.
