As you know, I partner with a few different companies to try out products and share my opinions with the world. I recently signed up with www.influenster.com and they graciously sent me the Spring Fever VoxBox. Inside was a bunch of different goodies (5 different items, to be exact!) and they all were pretty great products from great companies.
Inside was two cards, one welcoming me to the Spring VoxBox and detailing what was inside, and the other was a $5.00 off coupon for Ulta for any Schwarzkopf Professional OSiS+ purchase, a full size thing of Secret Outlast Completely Clean clear gel deodorant, a box of imPRESS press on manicure nails, a full size bottle of Schwarzkopf Professional OSiS+ Dust It Texture mattifying powder, NYC Applelicious Glossy Lip Balm in Big Apple Red, and a Tastykake Kandy Bar Kake in Reese's flavor. Needless to say, I was pretty pumped. Everything looked awesome and I was really excited to give it all a go.
|Schwarzkopf Professional OSiS Dust It (a $23.50 value)|
|Broadway Nails imPRESS Press-on Manicure (a $5.99-$7.99 value)|
Technology has come a long way with this sort of thing though, and I was imPRESSed (ba-dum-ching) with these nails. They were easy to apply and had their own sticky on the back of each one, all you do is pull off a plastic tab covering the sticky, press and go! There are 24 nail covers in 12 sizes, so you possibly could get two sets of out this, depending on the size of your nails. I put them on before work one morning, and they applied very quickly and felt VERY sturdy. I decided to not baby them because I wanted to see how they would last... and they easily went all day at the keyboard, through meetings and even through dishes later that night. The next morning I woke and all were still there, no problem, but I did notice that the index finger was getting a bit wobbly, so I took them off. So instead of lasting a week, they lasted one full day, but I still thought they were very sturdy and looked REALLY nice. I would absolutely buy these again for a big day or event.
|Secret Outlast Clear Gel Antiperspirant/Deodorant (a $4.59 value)|
Next was the Secret deodorant, which "leaves fewer white marks on clothes than the next leading invisible solid! And, with the 48 hour odor and wetness protection at such a low price, why pay more?" I personally feel like $4.59 is a bit crazy for deodorant, but then again I'm a basic Lady Speed Stick girl. I have some allergies with this sort of thing, so I have to be really careful what brands I buy. I was actually even hesitant to give this a try, but I decided to anyway. And you know what? It didn't bother me. BUT. I am not a fan of that clear gel. It left a weird wet and COLD feeling that I know I couldn't do every day. I also have used it twice and less than half of the bottle remains, so while it's neat and now I know I have another brand that doesn't bother me, I won't be purchasing this any time soon.
|Tastykake Kandy Bar Kakes Peanut Butter (a $4.49 per box value)|
|NYC New York Color Applelicious Glossy Lip Balm (a $2.99 value)|
