Hello! I'm Abbie from little old Nebraska! I recently have really got into cooking and baking for myself and others. I also enjoy crafty things, decorating, music, skin/makeup products, and reading about lifestyle tips!
The Harper + Ari exfoliating sugar cubes are awesome! The blue raspberry smell is to die for and it leaves me skin smelling great. The sugar cube itself does feel a little rough at the beginning but it exfoliates my skin just like it’s supposed to. I can’t wait to buy some other flavors!
I love this facewash! I’ve used it for about four years now and it’s my favorite. It’s very reasonably priced, is easy on my skin (doesn’t make me breakout), AND it even gets my eye makeup off! I would definitely recommend this cleanser (and I have!) to anyone searching for one. 😊
I received a package of three Invisibobble hair rings from Influenster and was SO excited because I was running low myself! I haven't had the nude color before and think it's so cute (even though I have dark brown hair). I already recommend these to all of my friends! The only complaint I have is that the hair rings sometimes stretch out after awhile and don't hold all of my hair in place. However, I do have really long hair and it's thick, so most ponytails don't do that job. Unless I wear the Invisibobble for hours on end, there is no line when I take it out which I love. Plus, they look super cute! I would definitely buy this product for myself.
I recieved the Mane Magic Primer in my Influenster #VacayVoxBox! I was really excited to try it because I feel like I'm constantly looking for something to put in my hair after I shower to help style/detangle. I LOVE the smell of this! That's one of the pluses I noticed. The bottle also promises to help dry your hair faster and I noticed that definitely helped. When it comes to tangles, I didn't think the Primer spray did as good of a job as some leave in conditioners, though it still helped (I have naturally curly tangled) hair so I need all the help I can get). For the price, I would likely try this product as a regular part of my routine!
I receieved this shampoo in my #VacayVoxBox from Influenster! I was super excited to try it. For starters, I love the smell of the shampoo. I also definitely apreciate the ingredients it uses and natural feel! However, for the type of hair I have, I don't think this shampoo is right for me. The shampoo felt very thin and I needed to use A LOT of it to reach all of my hair, let alone feel clean. I have long curly hair and even a palm full of shampoo did only covered my roots/skull portion of my hair. That being said, I think this shampoo wouldn't be financially worth it considering how much I have to use.
I only recently started drinking protein shakes, so I was really excited to get my complimentary OLLY Super Foods Smoothie in the mail from Influenster. When I opened the package, it smelled AMAZING! Way better than any shake I've had before. The package said you just had to mix it with a certain amount of your favorite beverage and shake well, which is super easy. So I used soy milk to mix it with and was excited to try it. However, I did not like the taste or texture of the shake. I was disappointed that simply mixing it with a liquid didn't taste great. I think it would have been a lot better if I blended it with frozen fruit as well, but it was unfortunate that I didn't have time to go through the trouble of that. I would like to see how it tastes with mixed fruits or veggies in it, so I would give it another shot.
I recieved my Minute Ready Rice from Influenster but I was very hesitant to try it. I'm a VERY picky eater and a lot of times that means I'm not a healthy eater. I've never tried quinoa before but I figured I'd hate it. I was very pleasantly surprised but I LOVED this rice. The pack it comes in is super quick and easy to eat out of or pour out. It only takes 60 seconds to make, and it's very filling (and healthy!). I will definitely be picking some of these packs up next time I go grocery shopping. The only complaint I have is that the garlic flavor wasn't very strong. It was hard to taste so I would like to see another flavor or some more garlic flavoring. Awesome product though and I'm so glad I was able to try it through Influenster!
I usually am not one who buys or uses top coats, but I loved the Essie Gel Couture Top Coat! It made the color blend better, shine more, and even come off better. I got the Essie Gel Top Coat complimentary as part of being an Influesnter :) I would definitely recommend this top coat to my friends! My only complaint is that it didn't help my polish stay on longer than normal.
