Palmolive Fresh Infusions Review

Recently I was sent a complimentary package from Influenster, that contained 3 Full Size Bottles of the New Palmolive Fresh Infusions Dish Soaps to try out.  My first impressions when I first opened the box, was that I Love the packaging, they have a nice sleek bottle, and design. The three Fragrances are Lemon Thyme, Lime Basil, and Ginger White Tea.  After smelling the trio, I think the Lemon Thyme is my favorite. The Ginger white tea, is probably my least favorite, because the scent is rather faint unlike the other two.
2 of the bottles leaked a little bit during shipping, so I rinsed them off, and was surprised by how much lather came from such a small amount of product. Also, I was disappointed that the coupons that were supposed to be included in my box was missing :( I know a few Friends that definitely would lave liked to try these out!

In the past week, I have tried all 3 fragrances, and the Lime Basil is HANDS DOWN my top favorite. It smells fantastic! I've actually found myself doing the dishes more, just so I could use it! The dish soap is gentle on your hands, cleans very well, and smells great. I will absolutely recommend this to all of you to try out! They're about $2.99 at Walmart and Target for a 16 oz. bottle.

Beauty Blogger VoxBox from Influenster!

I was so excited when I was contacted by Influenster, letting me know that I was going to be receiving
the Beauty Blogger VoxBox! It received it in the mail last week, and I LOVE EVERYTHING in it!
Included in the box were:
1 Mini Bath & Body Works Candle from the White Barn Collection -  I got the "Nutmeg And Spice" fragrance, and it SMELLS SO GOOD!

1 Package of 2 Goody Spin Pins - I was skeptical about these, because I didn't think that they would hold well, and I thought that if they did, then they would be a terror to remove, but I tried them out, and they are HANDS DOWN my FAVORITE item in the box, They were so simple to insert into my hair, they held very securely, and when I removed them, it was a BREEZE, no pulling on my hair, and not one hair came out, I tell you, I'm in Love! :)

1 LIMITED EDITION NYC IndividualEyes Custom Compact. I got the "Dark Shadows" compact, and It is gorgeous! I LOVE black and silver smoky eyes, and this will be PERFECT! It has 4 shadows, A PRIMER!, and an Illuminator Color for under your brow, or to use in the tear duct area. The colors are all shimmery,and include a white, a light silver, a gunmetal silver, and a black.

1 Not Your Mothers Smooth Moves Frizz Control Hair Cream ( 1.5 fl oz.) - I don't have extremely frizzy hair, but occasionally it frizzes up, so I was excited to try this. It is infused with coconut and silk extracts, and leaves your hair SO SMOOTH! Frizzy or not, I think I'll be using this! :) It has a nice lightweight consistency, and smells amazing!

1 Packet of EBOOST Daily Health Booster Drink Mix- I did not try this out, because I see that there is Caffeine in the Eboost blend on the back of the package, but I'll be passing it along to a friend to try out :)

1 KISS False Eyelashes Starter Kit - The kit contains 1 pair of 100% Human Hair eyelashes, 24 Hour Hold Latex Free Glue, and an applicator! The lashes are full, and long, and look  so realistic! I can't wait to wear these for a night out on the town! So glam!

There were two other bonus products that some bloggers received, but they weren't included in my box. I'm SO pleased with the products that I was able to test out though! I definitely found some new favorites!

Influenster Spring Beauty VoxBox

I was recently received an email from Influenster.com letting me know that I was going to be sent one of the Spring Beauty Boxes to review! It included all of these wonderful items!

 Ideal for hiding blemishes, age spots, redness, scars and other imperfections without heavy, cakey coverage. Duo shades can be blended to perfectly match any skin tone. $29.95
I have actually received this item in another beauty box a few months ago, and I'm glad to receive another because it covers well, and is a great match for my skintone! :) 

Real Nail Polish Strips! This product wears like nail polish because it IS nail polish (with no drying time). Apply and you’re ready to go.$9.99
This is another product that I've received in the past, and one that I have received as a gift from my mom last Christmas. I think that these are really fun, I like that they come in so many different designs, but they're a little expensive to use all the time. They say that they will last up to 10 days. The average for me has been about 5. For special occasions, I think they're great, more convenient and cheaper than going to a salon!

Whether you have on-going foot discomfort, or just a soft spot for the most stylish shoes in the store, you’re going to love the Dr. Scholl’s® For Her line. Take a few steps towards happier feet today! 
I am SO excited to try this! I have a couple pair of heels that my toes always slide down in, making them too uncomfortable to wear. If these work out, I'll be buying a set for all my shoes! :)

This body wash cleanses & moisturizes for visibly healthier skin every time you shower. It’s lightly fragranced, soap free, dye-free & hypoallergenic so it’s gentle enough for sensitive skin.  $6.99 - $8.99  for full size
I've used the Aveeno Products before, so this one isn't new to me either, but I did try it out just to be fair, and it's just as wonderful as I remember it. It left my skin smooth and moisturized. Great product!

This new product offers all season protection & moisturization for year-round exposure to the sun, wind & cold. With SPF 50+, it helps to protect from the sun’s damaging UVA/UVB rays. $1.89 - $2.39
Who doesn't love chapstick!? Especially when it has an SPF of 50! Love that, I'll be using this on the myself and the kiddos this summer!

Discover a better, more delicate fragrance experience with the NEW Fragrance Mist Collection. With over 20 Signature fragrances to choose from, it’s love at first mist! $14.00
I love BBW! I spend WAY too much money there, but they have such great sales, I always stock up!  I received a Sweet Pea scented mist, and it's FANTASTIC! I've been using it since I got my box! :) 

Enjoy SOYJOY with all-natural real ingredients like real fruit and whole soy! Simply baked in their Southern California bakery into SOYJOY bars for REAL energy-sustaining deliciousness. $.99 - $1.29
I got a blueberry flavored bar, and IT.IS/ DELICIOUS!   This is one snack that I would not mind giving to the kids, it's all natural!
