Capture2Sorry for all the product-related posts this week, I’ve been busy with an influx of review opportunities and I’m not one to turn it down. So bear with me, I’m still posting normal blogs as well. 🙂 Anyway, I was selected by Influenster to get their JollyVoxBox. This means I got a bunch of great complimentary products to try and review for my blog and social media accounts. I got loads of cool things like an EcoTools Hair brushRimmel Scandaleyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal EyelinerRimmel Gentle Eye Makeup RemoverNYC New York Color Expert Last Lip Color, Boots No7 Protect & Perfect Intense ADVANCED SerumMcCormick Gourmet Thyme, Celestial Seasonings candy Cane Lane Tea, and Fruit Vines Bites

I’ll start with the Fruit Vines, those lasted about five minutes after I un-boxed all my goodies and took pictures. Needless to say, they are very good. I happen to get the cherry flavor in my VoxBox, but they are also available in strawberry. So Fruit Vines Bites are a new, soft, chewy fruit candy, from the Red Vines family.  They are (surprisingly) low fat and made with no preservatives. Theses treats are available in three sizes: a 2oz single serve, a 5oz hanging bag and a 10oz re-sealable stand-up bag and can be found at Walmart in the West, Kroger, Walgreens, Target and Safeway and Rite Aid. Woohoo, there goes my diet!

 Rimmel Gentle Eye Makeup Remover, takes off all eye makeup (including waterproof mascara), is oil free, and is suitable for sensitive eyes & contact lens wearers. It is also dermatologist & ophthalmologist tested. This is great makeup remover! It took off all my eye makeup with ease and didn’t irritate my eyes or skin. I even wear contacts and I felt a-okay afterward. Overall, great product!

The Rimmel Scandaleyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal Eyeliner gives long lasting and intense color. The high intensity pigments give an instant color impact and the ultra smooth & creamy formula glides on easily.  The liners are waterproof, smudge-proof, sweat-proof, heat-proof, humidity-proof and scandal- proof! Like the makeup remover, they are dermatologist and ophthalmologist tested. Also, are safe for sensitive eyes. These kohl liners are also available in 10 shades. I had the chance to try the black liner and really love it. They are easy to apply and remove. I would love to try other colors. 

Celestial Seasonings Candy Cane Lane tea is really nice, especially for the holiday season. I usually don’t add anything to tea, I’m bit of a “tea purist”, but I love it. I may try it again with sugar and milk.  Candy Cane Lane has naturally decaffeinated green tea and flavors like cool peppermint, creamy vanilla and a dash of cinnamon. 

I love the EcoTools Sleek + Shine hair brush. I’ve used it on wet and dry hair and love the results. The unique bristle pattern allows the synthetic boar’s hair-like bristles to penetrate down to the scalp, distributing hair’s natural moisturizers and leaving hair with a sleek, lustrous shine. It also causes no frizz, for shiny polished and smooth hair. 

Next up, I tried the NYC New York Color Expert Last Lip Color. This lip stick is available in twenty  shades, offers intense amplified color and shine, and  lasts up to 6 hours! The moisturizing formula glides of easily for a silky, smooth, velvety finish for all day wear.The color goes on smooth and has a nice smell to it too! I like the shine to it as well. 

Boots No7 Protect & Perfect Intense Advanced Serum will supercharge your skincare regime. The Protect & Perfect Intense technology has been re-engineered to deliver even better anti-aging results. Independently tested and proven to work. This serum is powered by Matrixyl 3000 Plus™,  plus a next generation peptide that work together to help restore more youthful skin. With our patented antioxidant complex it helps protect skin from future signs of aging, keeping it looking younger for longer. After 2 weeks skin looks younger, by 4 weeks deep lines and wrinkles are visibly reduced. I tried it yesterday and it’s a nice velvety serum. I used it along my acne regimen and followed up with a moisturizer. I hope to see some results soon!

 Last (but not least) I got McCormick Gourmet Thyme. McCormick  imparts a light minty flavor that is distinctively warm and aromatic. They use FlavorSealed technology to lock in the fresh thyme flavor and deliver it to you.  All Natural Thyme can be used throughout the day in dishes such as breakfast casseroles, hearty soups, stews, stuffing and oven-roasted chicken. I plan to add it to some steaks we’re going to cook up next week, can’t wait!
