Influenster VoxBox Review: Loreal EverPure

As you all know, I love doing product reviews. Learning about new products. Testing them. Telling the world about them.

And each time I blog about a box of goodies that I receive, it’s my favorite box.

I know… They can’t all be my favorite. But this one really might be!

Loreal & Influenster teamed up to send me the new EverPure line, a brand new sulfate-free, wax-free, vegan line of salon quality haircare products!

And I am in love.

With just one use, my hair felt stronger, looked healthier, and was shinier than it have been in years! Need proof?? (See below).

No frizz for law prom! Shiny, sleek, healthy hair with natural products… Love it!

Thanks, Influenster, for sending me these incredible products for free to test 🙂

XO VoxBox

Guys… It’s been forever since I’ve written a real blog post. I don’t even know if I remember how to! Okay… that’s a little bit of an exaggeration. But it has been a while.

So let’s start back with a bang!

As you guys know, I love Influenster. I’ve been a product tester and reviewer for them for about a year and a half and have been lucky enough to receive several VoxBoxes. First, it was the The Jolly VoxBox and the Rimmel Moisture Renew VoxBox. Then, the Go VoxBox. And now the XO VoxBox! And can I just say that they up their game with each new campaign?

XO VoxBox

Here’s what I got to test in my XO VoxBox:

  • Tide Pods with Febreze – First of all, these are the best smelling detergent pods in the world. Also, they feel really cool. Will wanted to pop one… Obviously not a good idea, but if anything, that’s the hubby’s seal of approval. I am now a firm believer in the Tide Pods with Febreeze and don’t know if I can go back to liquid detergent!! Big A+ for these guys 🙂
  • Colgate Optic White Toothbrush + Built-in Whitening Pen & Colgate Optic White Express White 3 oz. Toothpaste – What a great collection… Colgate has done it again with innovative new technology to make your teeth happy and sparkly! The whitening toothbrush has given me visible results in just a week’s time! Love it!
  • John Frieda Frizz Ease Collection ShampooConditioner & Primer – These samples may lead to me buying the full-sized products of this line. I’m always struggling with the hair-frizz issue, and these products have been miraculous for my hair… especially with spring showers in full swing!
  • Skinfix Hand Repair Cream – Winter weather is luckily on its way out, but its damage of dry skin is here to stay… At least until Skinfix comes around 🙂 This smooth cream is a perfect repairer of the awful dry skin that winter brings.
  • Lands’ End & Adore Me discounts – These lovely sponsors also contributed to the XO VoxBox with special offers. I’m definitely going to be checking out their spring and summer clothing collections!

All of these products are perfect for getting your home and body refreshed for spring! What do you think? Any of these products look like something you need to add to your spring cleaning routine?

Valentine’s for HER

Now girls, don’t think I forgot about you. As much fun as it is to shop for Valentine’s treats for our men, it’s equally {read: more} fun to plant hints in their mind about all of the lovely things we’re interested in these days!

So here are some HOT new items that I just know you’ll casually bring up to your man this week… 🙂

Valentine's for HER

  1. Handlettering print from Jenn Gietzen ($35) – I’ve followed Jenn and her Write On! Design for a while now, and I’m always inspired! Not only is she extremely talented in handlettering and graphic design but she’s always very funny. Her quotes always make me smile, laugh, and reflect. Also, I can only hope to letter as well as she does at the end of my Year of Words project. Any gal would be happy to hang one of Jenn’s pretty prints in her home.
  2. Cookies from The DoughMestic HouseWife (varies) – Nom nom nom. Every girl {that I know} loves cookies. Duh. So what better treat than a custom box of gorgeously hand decorated cookies?! You must check out The DoughMestic HouseWife on Instagram… Then you’ll understand just how great of a gift this would be!
  3. Ellie Vail Cory Necklace from Lilli & Tori ($42) – With a EKG reading as the pendant, you can literally wear your guy’s heartbeat on your neck {awwww…}. This gold plated necklace is simple, elegant, and could be worn with practically anything. But if you don’t think the heartbeat thing is your thing, check out Lilli & Tori’s awesome inventory.
  4. “I’m So Fancy” mug from Moon & Lola ($28) – Ladies, this mug is a “wake up and feel fabulous” gift. Moon & Lola has several really cutesy mugs along with pillows that have matching themes.You should check out their Galentine’s Day collection for more lovely ideas!
  5. Paper Crown + Rifle Paper Co. NEW clothing line (varies) – This is actually REALLY exciting because the release of the line that is a collaboration of Lauren Conrad & Anna Bond {Ah!} is releasing THIS Thursday! AH! There’s going to be a pop-up shop in L.A. Friday through Sunday, and I’m quite sad that I live nowhere near L.A. Haha. The line is bound to be gorgeous all around and I found this maxi dress along with some others on L.C.’s blog.

What do ya’ll think? I think it’s safe to say that between pretty words, gold fancies, beautiful threads, and cookies it’d be a pretty sweet Valentine’s Day 🙂

Batch Charleston #3

Our final box of our gift subscription to Batch was definitely my favorite of the bunch! (Have I said this each time? I think so.) If you aren’t familiar with Batch, read my previous reviews here or here! What you need to know about Batch… They are a delivery service of amazing local goods straight to your door 🙂

Here’s what we got this time around:

Batch Charleston

And great news friends! If this sounds like something that a loved one of yours would just love as a Christmas gift, you still have time to order for them to receive a Batch for the holidays! They also have 3-, 6-, and 12-months options for giving holiday subscriptions! The deadline is December 18, so hurry on over and place your order for quality local goods from one of your favorite cities in the US!

For the price of one (yes, just one) PSL at Starbucks you can have five (count em… five!) PSLs in the comfort of your own home with VIA!! The same great taste that you enjoy in-store can now be brought home and prepared in just minutes with hot water. That’s it!

Check out VIA today. I’ve heard there is also a Peppermint Mocha… I’m going to have to try it!
