I was really excited to receive this VoxBox because I love clay face masks! I actually received the Clear & Comfort blue seaweed mask, but Influenster will only allow me to place my review here, on the yellow mask.
The mask left my skin will cleansed and smooth, and minimized my pores in the process! It goes on smoothly and washes away easily, not always the case for some clay masks. I don't always follow-up masks with a moisturizer - only if my skin feels dried out - and this one did not leave my skin feeling dry at all. I also noticed that some of the mild redness and irritation I've been dealing with lately has been greatly reduced (around my chin/cheeks) and has even cleared up in some spots (nose/forehead.) I definitely recommend this mask for anyone who is looking for something a bit more intense than a cleanser and based on my experience, think it's a great product for all skin types.
I received this L'Oréal Skincare Pure-Clay Mask for free, in exchange for an honest review.
This is my favorite beauty blender! I've tried a few others at this price point that have been so-so. I haven't caved and spent $20 on the brand product, but I can't see it being better. This one can often be found for $5-8 on sale at Target, I've never paid full price. It absorbs water very well and retains just enough to help blend my liquid foundation flawlessly. As long as my skin is in good shape, the final result has an airbrushed quality and I love it! I was also able to use it for a full month before having to clean the sponge, which was really nice compared to others that need to be cleaned weekly.
I wasn't sure I would like this palette as much as the original Naked Basics palette, and I couldn't have been more wrong! I love the matte colors, they are perfect for everyday wear. The pigmentation is great and the colors blend well and are long lasting. Great product for the price and I will definitely buy again.
I recent purchased these blender sponges because the price was too good to pass up. For $10 you get two sponges of varying sizes, whereas other brands only give you one sponge or charge double the price for just one. These blenders are thicker than others I have used and don't really absorb water in the same way. The first few days of use were great, but they've started to absorb less water and don't blend as well as they did initially. They still work well, but I feel like my makeup isn't as smooth as with other blenders. I don't love them or hate them. Maybe they just don't work well for me. They're worth giving a shot for the price point.
This is such a great texturizing spray! I love to use this when I curl may hair, after the curls set and before I run my fingers through to loosen them up. I can't use volumizing products, they make my hair go flat in minutes, but this texturizing spray gives me the boost in volume I'm looking for. In combination with hairspray it helps my wavy curls last all day. Additionally, my hair isn't flat and gross the second day. I can touch-up curls, use a little more texture spray and be done for the day. Love, love, love this product! I only have a sample size (from Birchbox) but plan to order when it runs out.
This is my go-to summer facial moisturizer. The gel consistency is perfect for dry, summer skin and it's lightweight so that it doesn't clog my pores and cause breakouts. As odd as it sounds, it smells delicious - if you like creamsicles that is. (That's what it smells like to me.) At $40 it's a little more than I would like to pay for a moisturizer, but worth every penny. I've worn this on hot, humid Kentucky, Florida, and Jamaica days and it kept my skin looking great, as well as my make-up. I initially purchased because it was recommended for sensitive skin and it certainly did not disappoint!
I've used this product in the past, but no more. I personally prefer other options. They are made much thinner than in the past, which does mean they're less noticeable/more comfortable, but they just aren't my go-to liner. These are NOT meant to replace pads or tampons, but rather protect your underwear/clothing in the event of a leak during your period. I could see these being a good fit for women with lighter periods as well.
This is my go-to when it comes to my eyebrows. I've never been a fan of eyebrow pencils and a couple of years ago watched an online tutorial where this product was used. The gel is perfect for defining your brows and shaping them up. The taupe powder is the perfect shade for me. First, I outline to define, then fill in. I do not use the little brush that comes with the kit, it just didn't work for me. My brows look full and natural. I've also received quite a few compliments too and always recommend this product!
This is the perfect beef stock for soups and stews. One of my favorite fall/winter recipes is essentially a fancy take on beef stew and this stock helps bring out the flavors of other ingredients. In combination with those ingredients, it also thickens up perfectly so that I have the right consistency every time. This will continue to be my go-to for beef stock.
