Influenster Voxbox | Chic Voxbox | Unboxing

Hello, hello! I hope you are having (or already) had a great day!

As you can tell by the title, I received another Influenster voxbox! I swear this is getting way too easy! Lol. If you love receiving free products (especially beauty products) then you seriously have to consider signing up for Influenster! This is my sixth or seventh voxbox and I am so excited to show you all the goodies I received for free!

I qualified for their chic voxbox campaign and I received 4 lovely products!

The first product is a sample size shampoo and conditioner from Hair Food. Before receiving these sample items I had never heard of these products, yet alone this brand. That is probably another reason why I love Influenster. I get to try out different products that I probably would not usually buy in store and it seems like every time I receive a voxbox I find a new product to obsess over! Lol. This shampoo and condtioner will help moisturize your hair and it is infused with a honey apricot fragrance. I absolutely love the way this smells! I especially loved how this product left my hair feeling and looking! Both items are free of paraben and mineral oil. The full size products for this sample retail for $9.99 each and contain 530 mL, while the sample contained only 10 mL. (Just so you can get an idea of big the bottles will be!)

Next, we have a Pomegranate Ahas & Enzymes Resufacing Mask by KORRES. I received a sample size, which contains 10 mL.This product is for oily to combination skin type. I have not yet used this product, but I am really excited to try this item out and just like the item above I have not heard of this brand before. Lol. I feel like I live under a rock since I don’t know many of these brands/products. The full size product which contains 75 mL retails for $34.00! It is a little pricey for me, but if I love this product I will definitely have to give in and buy it!

We then have an EOS shave cream. I was unaware that EOS also made shave cream. I had initially thought that they only made lip balms! I received the sensitive shave cream, so this item is specially made for sensitive skin and helps to soothe and deeply moisturize skin, while maintaining no added fragrance. This full sized item retails for $3.99.

Lastly, I received a full sized mascara! This is the NYX Worth the Hype Volumizing & Lengthening Masacara. It has a buildable formula and gives you dark, fuller looking lashes. I absolutely fell in love with this mascara. I can see why they called it ‘Worth the Hype’ Lol. It really did give my lashes that volume and length that I love! This full size product retails for $8.00. I definitely recommend this item if you are looking for a good mascara!

Those are all the products I received! Like I said before I highly recommend checking Influenster out! It’s totally free and if you love free stuff, you would love Influenster.

I hope you have a great week and thank you so much for reading!

Influenster Voxbox

Hello and happy Saturday! I hope everyone is having a great day and making it a good one!

I’m so excited to announce that I have received my second Influenster Voxbox!

Exactly two weeks ago I received an email from Influenster saying that I was accepted for their Suave Naturals voxbox! I’m always using suave products so I was so excited to hear that I was going to receive two full size suave products for free!

I received the almond and shea butter lotion its retail price is $2.94. I was also lucky enough to receive the avocado and olive oil body wash! Aside from the two full products they sent me a cute little green loofah. A total retail price of $8, being both delivered and given to me for free? Totally awesome, and something I definitely recommend you all look into.

So here are my reviews on the two products.

Avocado and Olive Oil Body Wash: I was so excited when I received the Avocado and olive oil body wash! I was especially curious as to how they were going to make a body wash smell like avocado! To my surprise it smelled very clean and smooth! It was not a strong scent like some other body washes. I especially loved how it left my body feeling. My skin felt so smooth and moisturized. This product is definitely a new fave of mine!

Almond and Shea Butter Lotion: Now, I have used this product before, and can attest that it’s a very good moisturizer! It’s a great product for anyone who deals with dry skin, whether it be on their face, legs, arms, etc. This product will leave your skin feeling nice and smooth if repeatedly used. The smell is amazing and a little bit of this product really does go a long way! I can assure you that this bottle of lotion will last you for a good while!

Overall using these two products will leave your skin feeling healthy and happy!

Also, if you are not an Influenster user I highly recommend you sign up! You won’t regret it especially when you receive your first voxbox! I also want to mention that Influenster does not ask for any type of credit/debit card, like so many other companies out there.

Mascara Review: They’re Real by Benefit Cosmetics

Hello and happy Thursday!

Today I wanted to write a review on the mascara They’re Real by Benefit Cosmetics.

Screen Shot 2017-12-21 at 5.16.06 PM.png

I’ve always heard many amazing things about this mascara, so I decided to give it a try.

Now I’m the type of person who loves both length and fullness when it comes to my eyelashes.  But if I had to choose one I would take fullness over length!

If you’re looking for a mascara to give you that long and beautiful length that your eyelashes deserve than this mascara is totally for you!

I’m not going to lie, when I first tried this mascara I was disappointed. My bar was set so high for this product since I’ve heard nothing but good things, but after using it a couple of times and applying more than one coat I fell in love!

For the past couple of years I’ve only used one mascara and I guess I forgot that different mascaras give you different looks. I know it’s silly and so obvious, but I had fallen into a routine with this old mascara of mine. In the past I’ve purchased other mascaras and non have been as good as my old one until I got my hands on this one!

This mascara is definitely one of my top five beauty products!

Screen Shot 2017-12-21 at 5.15.52 PM.png

The retail price for this product is $36, but I was able to get it for $24! It also came with a mini, which is a pretty awesome deal if you ask me! You can have one at home and toss the other in your purse/backpack for emergencies.

When applying this product make sure not to accidentally get some of the mascara on your eyelid, especially if you have eyeshadow on. It’s pretty tough to remove if you make a mistake.

Overall this product is definitely worth it! With the holidays around the corner this would make a great gift/stocking stuffer for anyone who is a mascara lover!

I hope you have a beautiful day and thank you for reading!

Mascara Review: The Colossal Volum’ Express by Maybelline New York 

Hello everyone!

Happy Friday! Finally the weekend is here!

Today I wanted to write a review on my favorite mascara, the Colossal Volume Express by Maybelline New York. This is my first time reviewing a mascara, so please bare with me. I am reviewing the glam black shade.

Let me begin by saying that my lashes are naturally long and I am not wearing false lashes nor extensions just to make that clear. In the photo below I’m not wearing any mascara on.

I am a total mascara lover! Whether I am doing a full makeup look or something more natural, mascara is always in the picture!


This mascara has been my go-to for about four years or so. I’m not quite sure on the timeline, but this product is one that I’ve been using since forever!

I’m not so crazy about the bright colors on the packaging, but it is easy to find when digging through your makeup bag that’s for sure!


The brush is amazing, it adds volume and lengthens your lashes! I especially love how it applies evenly and as you can tell by the photos it does a great job of separating your lashes to give you a fuller look.
Whenever I use this product I’m constantly being complimented and asked whether if I’m wearing false lashes.

The only bad thing that I can say about this product is the fact that it tends to flake as I’m applying it, but other than that this mascara is great!


This mascara can do the job of any high priced mascara and the great part is the price! This product can be purchased at Ulta for only seven dollars which is awesome. I would definitely recommend this product to anyone who is looking for a great mascara without putting a dent in their bank account!

Have a great weekend!

Nyx matte lipstick 


Happy Wednesday!
I hope everyone is doing great! I just wanted to write a mini blog post on this gorgeous shade of matte lipstick from NYX.


It’s the perfect shade of pink! The color is Istanbul and the packaging/texture of the product is great! This lipstick can be purchased for about $6.50 at Ulta, Target or Walgreens.


I know fall is around the corner so most bright colors are pretty much out of the picture now, but I was in need of a bright pink shade!

I just wanted to post a little something on my recent purchase!
