J’Adore VoxBox Review

Image

I must say, I really did fall in love with all of the products in the J’Adore VoxBox.  I’m going to talk about each product and let you all know what excited me the most about each item.  The products in this box, which I must add, I got completely FREE to try from Influenster, included: Kiss Looks So Natural Lashes, Hershey Kisses Milk Chocolate, Vaseline Men’s Spray Lotion, Boots Botanics Shine Away Ionic Clay Mask (My Favorite!), John Frieda Frizz Ease 3-Day Straight Flat Iron Spray, and Red Rose Simply Indulgent Teas.  I know, I’m very lucky to get to try all of these products!  I’m excited to share my review on each and everyone of them.

 

First I will start off with the Kiss Looks So Natural Lashes.  These lashes come in a variety of different styles.  The ones I received were called “Shy.”  The shy lashes were perfect for me.  I had never tried false lashes before and was a little weary of what to expect.  I was afraid they would be too much, I didn’t want it to be apparent that I was wearing false lashes.  The application of these lashes was so simple!  If I can do it, anyone can do it and I did it with ease.  I just followed the directions on the back of the box, simple enough, right? First I lined the lash up with my natural lash to ensure the fit was correct, it just needed a little trim.  Next I applied the glue that came in the box along the strip on the lashes, set it on my natural lash line for about 10 seconds and bam! Done!  So easy, and so natural looking!  I was afraid the lashes would be uncomfortable or something would go wrong and they would fall off.  Neither happened!  The Kiss Looks So Natural Shy Lashes were perfect for me.  They glamorized my look without being too much of a shock for me.  They aren’t something that I would be wearing daily, but I do recommend these to any first time false lash wearers.

 

Next comes the Milk Chocolate Hershey Kisses.  Who doesn’t love chocolate and who doesn’t love Hershey’s Kisses?  I received a large bag with pink, red, and silver wrappers, just in time for Valentine’s Day.  My whole family enjoyed these and they were gone within a week.  Our favorite way to enjoy these was to pop them in our mouths and let the creamy chocolate melt away.  The great thing about Hershey Kisses is that they can be eaten alone, used in crafts, used to bake with, the possibilities are endless. I definitely recommend Hershey Kisses to all fellow chocolate lovers of the world.

 

Now we are on to my husband’s favorite item in the box- Vaseline Men’s Spray Lotion.  Normally when I receive things to sample they are all for me.  My husband was really excited to have something he could try out.  This lotion was unbelievable simple to use.  Click the top, spray, give a quick rub and done.  We really liked the spray feature, it was much easier than dealing with a cream that you have to rub in and sometimes leaves you feeling greasy.  This lotion did not leave his skin greasy at all.  The best feature in my husband’s opinion was the light, manly fragrance.  His exact words were “No “chick” smell.”  It’s great to have a lotion that can help moisturize his skin after working in the cold weather daily that doesn’t make him feel less masculine.  This product is great for any man with dry skin!

 

Now on to my favorite, Boots Botanics Shine Away Ionic Clay Mask.  I had never used a mask like this before, now I will never go without this mask again.  When I first opened the bottle to squeeze the mixture out, I thought there was something wrong because it was somewhat liquid-y.  I had expected it to be a thick mixture and was a little taken aback when it just poured out into my hand.  After shaking the container, still thinking something wasn’t quite right, I poured out a little more.  Much to my surprise it still had a liquid-y consistency.  I decided just to go with it.  Applying it to my face was simple and the fact that it wasn’t thick made this mask apply smooth and it didn’t take much to cover my entire face.  At this point my daughter walked in the bathroom and screamed because “Mommy turned into a monster!”  Once I got her calmed down I noticed the tight feeling of my face.  To me this meant the mask must be working!  After waiting the recommended 10 minutes I washed the mask off and became just Mommy again, no more Mommy Monster.  I was AMAZED at how much I LOVED how my face felt.  I really can not express this enough through text.  My face was glowing, my skin felt tight and to the touch it was soft and smooth.  I realized this is what I had been missing in my life.  This is now my new favorite way to pamper myself.  I can’t quite go to the spa weekly, but I can use my Boots Botanics Shine Away Ionic Clay Mask.  In case you haven’t already guessed, I highly recommend this product to every woman out there.

 

John Frieda Frizz Ease 3-Day Straight Flat Iron Spray is another product that has become a constant on my bathroom shelf.  As you can tell by the name of the product the promise of this product is that it will keep your hair straight and frizz-free for 3 days straight.  It did just that for me.  I washed my hair, sprayed about 10 sprays throughout, dried, then used my flat iron.  I absolutely loved the outcome.  My hair was straight and frizz free as promised.  I had been skeptical about this product.  I was sure on day 2 I would wake up with greasy hair because of the product I had put in it and would have to wash and dry, continue on with my normal routine.  I was wrong.  I was incredibly happy that I was wrong!  I didn’t have to wash my hair.  All I had to do was run the flat iron through it a couple times and away I went.  My hair was perfect and I saved A LOT of time.  Day 3 was another story for me.  Could I have straightened and went about my day had I wanted to, yes, but I was not 100% satisfied with the way my hair felt that morning.  Although my hair didn’t look greasy, it felt flat and stuck to my head.  I did choose to wash my hair on day 3.  With that being said, I think everyone is different, I say give it a shot and see how it works for you.  I have still decided to purchase this product and continue using it because I love that it worked so well on day 2 and it does stop the annoying fly-aways that I used to have to deal with.

 

No…I’m not done yet….. 

 

Last, but certainly not least we have Red Rose Simply Indulgent Teas.  In my J’Adore VoxBox I received two different flavors.  I’m going to talk about my favorite, Creme Caramel.   I was absolutely amazed by the flavor. I prepared it as suggested on the package which included adding a splash of milk. I also added a little sugar as I would with any other tea. It was very creamy and the caramel flavor definitely popped through. What amazed me the most is that the flavors are all natural!  No artificial flavoring needed, it has all the flavor of dessert with none of the guilt! This tea is great to start the morning out or even for a guilt-free snack.  I highly recommend Red Rose Tea.

 

Sorry for such a long post, but I had to do justice to all six amazing products that I received in my J’Adore VoxBox.  I was lucky to receive this box to try out.  I sampled an old favorite, Hershey Kisses, found a new favorite treat, Red Rose Tea, and upped my beauty routine with Kiss Looks So Natural Lashes, Boots Botanics Shine Away Ionic Clay Mask, and John Frieda Frizz Ease 3-Day Straight Flat Iron Spray.  My husband even felt special with his Vaseline Men’s Spray Lotion.  As you read, there was nothing in this box that I wouldn’t recommend to you, my friends, or my family. If you have any additional questions about anything I’ve reviewed from my J’Adore VoxBox, please let me know!!  

 

More reviews to come very soon….

Glade® PlugIns® Scented Oil Customizables™ Review

Screen-shot-2011-04-22-at-8.04.29-PM.png (850×542)Image 

After receiving my Glade® PlugIns® Scented Oil Customizables™ for  from BzzAgent in the mail I was very excited to go to the store and choose the fragrance that I would use in my home. Upon arriving at the store I was pleased to see they had two different options; Glade Plugins Scented Oil Customizables Clean Linen and Sunny Days Starter Kit or Hawaiian Breeze and Vanilla Passion Fruit. It was a tough decision but I decided to go with the Hawaiian Breeze & Vanilla Passion Fruit Starter Kit.

Along with the scented oil, both varieties came in a package with the warmer, and a decorative cover. It was great to have everything that was needed all in one handy package. Once I arrived home I was quick to open the package so that I could begin using my PlugIn. There were illustrated instructions that made putting my getting it ready to use a snap. I love that if needed you are able to rotate the plug if needed so that it could be used in any outlet. Fortunately the plug was in the correct position for my outlet so I simply unscrewed the cap on scented oil and plugged it in to the warmer, then did the same for the second scented oil. After locking the decorative cover into place, I plugged it in and IMMEDIATELY the aroma of Hawaiian Breeze filled the air.

Another perk of Glade® PlugIns® Scented Oil Customizables™ is that every 24 hours the scent rotates. I never get tired of the smell! With any type of air freshener I am always afraid the scent will not be strong enough and it won’t last. That is definitely not the case with this oil. There are three different levels to choose from on this warmer. I have it placed on the lowest level and to me, it is perfect for my home. My husband actually thinks it is a little too strong. I am very impressed with how long the fragrance from this oil will last. I am actually anxiously awaiting the day it runs out so that I can go choose two new scents to try out!!

Red Rose Simply Indulgent Tea Review

So, lately I have been into reviewing products that I am able to get for free from various places.  I was able to try Red Rose Creme Caramel for free thanks to Influenster.  I will explain more about what Influenster is in my next post, which will be information about ALL of the wonderful products I received to review.  First I was blown away by the tantalizing aroma, then I was absolutely amazed by the flavor of the tea.  I prepared it as suggested on the package which included adding a splash of milk.  I also added a little sugar as I would with any other tea.  It was very creamy and the caramel flavor definitely popped through.  It amazes me that these are natural flavors.  Red Rose Creme Caramel Tea has all the flavor of dessert with none of the guilt!  I highly recommend giving this tea a shot.  I can’t wait to try more Red Rose flavors!!
