Influenster Vow VoxBox

You know what I love? Getting a new VoxBox in the mail! Makes me go EEP! and skip to the door to open it!  I got a new voxbox in the mail and it couldn't have came at a better time because tomorrow is my little sister Jennifer's wedding!! I am so pleased and excited about this month's voxbox! For starters, it's theme is Wedding! And the box is almost a Tiffany blue. #somethingblue

Please NOTE: All of the following products were sent to me for FREE courtesy of Influenster for testing and review purposes! 


#VowVoxBox:

For starters, the first thing that caught my eye was this beautiful blue nail polish! It is Sally Hansen Complete Nail Salon Manicure and it retails for $7.99. The color is called Barracuda.   I tried this right away as you can see on my nails, and the great thing about this polish is that it has 7 benefits in this one bottle:  (Base coat, strengthener, growth treatment, salon-inspired color, top coat, chip-resistance, and a gel finish all in one!) This product comes in 56 shades! 


The thing I loved the most was this amazing brush. It's nice and flat and covers most of the nail in one sweep. It allows more polish to touch the nail bed at a time. 

 #360 Barracuda  Love this name. :)


 Included was a card that contained a 50% coupon code for Riley & Grey Wedding website services. #DoYou
I visited the Riley & Grey website and it's a really cute site. For more information, please visit: Riley & Grey



Pure Silk Rich & Luxurious Raspberry Mist Shave Cream Retails for $2.19
This shaving cream has aloe and extra moisturizers in it, and it leaves your body feeling extra silky smooth! Comes in 7 different varieties. #PureSilk



EcoTools Pure Complexion Sponge retails for $5.99
I have never used a complexion sponge before, but am excited to try this one. The idea is that by using this 100% natural ingredient sponge made from Konjac vegetable fiber, that your skin will help remove makeup, dirt and oil to help your skin look smooth and refreshed. #ecotools

I was very impressed with the material and size of this facial sponge. The box says sponge is good for 1-3 months. 


Olay Regenerist Luminous Tone Perfecting Cream retails for $30.99 (Woah! Thanks Influenster)  This is a facial moisturizer that fades dark spots in 8 weeks! This product contains a Brightening Complex that delivers tone ingredients 10 layers deep into the skin's surface which reveals pearlescent skin that glows!  This product brightens, exfoliates and tones. #BestBeautiful 



I love that the box gives a very helpful Regenerist Regimen Guide for people who are serious about their skin care and use the Regenerist line.  Here is the order you should use your products: 


 I found this product to be very light. Felt lightweight on my skin, and had a pleasant fragrance.   I have suffered from melasma on the face for years and I have some old acne and blemish scars that I'd love to have lightened. I cannot wait to see my skin in 8 weeks! 




And lastly.. 
I got a Tide to Go Pen which retails for $7.99 for a 3 pack
Basically it's a pen that removes stains on the go! #TidetoGo 

I know for a fact these things work. I have used them for years! My children even know how to use them. See: 


Pudding Stain and my daughter cleaning it up! 


No more stain!  Pretty good for a 5 year old. ;) 



 My sister's wedding is tomorrow and I know my manicure and legs for sure will be smooth and flawless, and if I get a stain anywhere, I know I'm covered too. :) 
And that sums up my thoughts on the June #VowVoxBox. I give this box 10/10. This box was great. These were all products I haven't received from Influenster in the past. Loved them all. 
Thank you Influenster for letting me try these out!

Xoxo.

BzzReport: Freschetta Gluten Free Pizza


I joined a BzzCampaign for Freschetta Gluten Free Pizza! 
I #GotItFree courtesy of BzzAgent for review purposes! 

This was my first time trying Gluten Free pizza. I do not personally have to eat gluten free food like individuals with Celiac disease or people who suffer from gluten sensitivities, however I chose to join this campaign to be open-minded about other foods and to try something new.  Gluten-Free is a "fad diet" for some, and today I am sharing my thoughts on it. 


So this is what came in my BzzKit!


I got a FREE coupon to redeem for 1 Freschetta Gluten Free Pizza (I chose 4 Cheese Medley) and I got a pretty nifty Freschetta Gluten Free blade-less pizza cutter! 


The box said to pre-heat and cook it at 450 degrees for 12-16 minutes. 
I cooked min in 14 minutes. 



Before:

After:


For starters, this pizza was not available in very many stores in my area. I had to get on the Freschetta website and enter my zipcode into the store locator to find the correct place to redeem my coupon.  I made several store trips before I realized I needed to do this.  Imagine my surprise when after all of that.. when I tried the pizza, I was unfortunately filled with great sadness, because this pizza it did not taste as amazing as I had hoped.  I like to have 3 specifics in mind when eating pizza. 1. Crispy Crust 2. Lots of Toppings 3. Tastes Amazing! Win! Right?   Well, the crust was nice and crispy. The topping being just 4 cheese was so plain. And the taste... very BLAND.  It was not terrible, but I had higher expectations from Freschetta, because I know they deliver when it comes to taste with their other products! A personal favorite is the Freschetta Brick Oven Crust Pizza in 3 Meat Medley.  Now that pizza tastes amazing. (See photo below)  Anyways, back to the Gluten Free Pizza... It reminded me of eating cardboard! It didn't have a lot of flavor.  This makes me wonder if all gluten-free foods are that way?!  If so, I apologize to anybody who has to live off of gluten-free food. I mean nobody any disrespect. In fact, kudos to you. I cannot do it.  I promise not to take my eat-whatever-I-want diet for granted ever again!  

Pizza Rating: 5/10
Would I purchase in the future?: No
Do I still love Freschetta?: ABSOLUTELY


Now that's what I'm talkin' about! ^ NOM!!
