Influenster #Frosty vox box

This is my first voxbox #frosty
I am so thrilled to have received this box it has a couple products that I already love and some I haven't ever tried. So here are my reviews of the products I received.


Rimmel Gentle Eye Makeup Remover :
About this Product
At the end of the day, Just Let It Go with Rimmel London’s Gentle Eye Makeup Remover.  This Eye Makeup Remover gently removes all eye make up, including long lasting & waterproof make up, with no oily residue.  Gently remove all of your eye makeup and start fresh again in the morning!

Product Details:
- Removes all eye makeup – including waterproof mascara
- Oil Free
- Suitable for sensitive eyes & contact lens wearers.
- Dermatologist & ophthalmologist tested

    My thoughts: It removes face and eye makeup however I find it doesn't really remove waterproof mascara. It is not oily and doesn't bother my skin like some removers do. I haven't tried it with my contacts in since it doesn't remove waterproof mascara. I have already used this product before it was sent to me but I use it as a spot cleaner for my brushes works fine for that and that's what I'll continue to buy it for.

Rimmel Scandaleyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal Eyeliner  :   
Long lasting shocking color intensity with kohl Britania High intensity color for an instant color impact Ultra smooth & creamy formula that glides on easily Waterproof, smudge-proof, sweat-proof, heat-proof, humidity-proof and scandal- proof Dermatologist & ophthalmologist tested. Safe for sensitive eyes.
10 available shades 

    My thoughts: I love this eyeliner it goes on smooth and lasts a long time for me which I have a hard time finding eyeliners that do. I have and will continue to buy this product. My Favorite!!!!

NYC New York Color Expert Last Lip Color  :
Time for a Color Shock Therapy !
Girls, this is NEW YORK CITY! It’s time to inject a color that lasts into your city life!

  • Wears up to 6 hours
  • Long lasting shine
  • Amplified color
  • Velvety and glamorous finish
  • Doesn't feather or bleed 
   My thoughts: It didn't wear for 6 hours, it was shiny but it felt oily to me. It wasn't opaque it take several passes to get darker. I didn't notice any bleeding or feathering

 Celestial Seasonings Candy Cane Lane Decaf Green Tea  :
All Natural:

McCormick Gourmet All Natural Thyme :

My thoughts: I love this it livened up my chicken pie yummy.

   My thoughts: I don't like cherry however my kids loved them they were soft and chewy. I will be buying the strawberry.

Styler + Smoother Hair Brush

A versatile half-round design provides the styling features of a round brush, while the cushioned paddle gently smoothes and detangles. Plus, when blowing dry the brush dries hair 20% faster* due to its aerodynamic Eco-Vent™ design. Less time drying allows for less heat damage and quicker prep time!

*Tested versus a leading brush.

   My thoughts: I have only used this once to dry my hair and it seemed to dry a little bit faster than normally. I have used it to just brush my tangled hair and it went though pretty well.


Boots No7 Protect & Perfect ADVANCED Serum :

    My thoughts: Its hard to do a good review on something when it only has maybe a couple uses in the sample so any review I was to write wouldn't do the product justice so can't honestly review this product. I would have loved to review it for longer then a couple days. 


"I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes."

Even Glow Serum - Antioxidant Skin Treatment with 20% Vitamin C by Valentia Skin Care Review


   So today I'm reviewing Even Glow Serum - Antioxidant Skin Treatment with 20% Vitamin C by Valentia Skin Care . So First off my face is a mess dark spots like the ones you get when you are pregnant (no i'm not) it's caused by birth control, and my face is sensitive so I was unsure if i could even use it but i did. Let me just say I am in love with the scent it smells like oranges and I love that it's made in the USA. So I'm I am going to copy and paste some of the information from their product page then post what I thought about each claim it has so lets get started.


   >  EVENS SKIN TONE:
Vanquish dark spots and skin discoloration, replacing uneven and ill-textured skin with smooth, wrinkle-free skin that leaves you looking flawless and ageless.

  < I have noticed that my dark spots have faded they are not gone but I think using this longer than two weeks may fade them completely.

  >  INCREASES GLOW & RADIANCE:
Revitalize your skin with essential fatty acids that leave skin smooth and visibly brighter. Smooth skin capable of reflecting light will give your skin a youthful glow and a brilliant shine for that well-rested and refreshed look.

  <  I did notice my face was brighter after a couple uses and smoother except for my acne.

  >  ABSORBS RAPIDLY:
Moisturizes skin due to the capacity of the hyaluronic acid to absorb water, thereby increasing fluid between cells, giving your skin a smoother and younger appearance. This intense water absorption means no more dry, peeling or cracked skin, even in extreme weather.

   <  It does absorb quickly and my face isn't dry and it does feel softer.

   > BOOSTS COLLAGEN PRODUCTION:
The presence of Organic Rosehip Seed oil to support Vitamin C increases collagen production so your skin retains the elasticity responsible for a youthful appearance and prevents skin sagging associated with aging. Enjoy smooth and supple skin that takes years off your appearance.

   > Like I said previously my face is smoother not sure about sagging yet haven't used it long enough yet.

   > REDUCES WRINKLES & FINE LINES:
Reduce the visibility of fine lines and wrinkles with the help of our foundation 20 % Vitamin C. Special ingredients such us Hyaluronic Acid and Organic Sea Buckthorn oil work to plump up the skin, which reduces fine lines and wrinkles in the skin so it is smoother, clearer and younger.

   

So there is their claim and what I've seen in the short time I have been using Even Glow Serum. I will buy it for my dark spots even if it don't work for fine lines But I'm still hoping it will work for the lines. Check out my before and after photos.....


DAY 1




  DAY 17 




  Pictures are not great but I see some difference.
Here is a list of Key Ingredients and what they do:
  KEY INGREDIENTS

Vitamin C: With a 20% concentration does more than boost the body’s immune system; it also provides many benefits to keep the skin tight, smooth and looking ageless. Vitamin C has been scientifically proven to reduces the effects of sun exposure on the skin, including sunburn, sun spots, redness and wrinkles.

In addition to helping reduce the signs of aging, Vitamin C is essential for everyday maintenance to strengthen and smooth out the skin, as well as neutralizing free radicals before they can damage the skin.

***Our additional Key Ingredients below were all selected for their ability to enhance and support Vitamin C's effect on the skin.

Organic Rosehip Seed Oil & Organic Sea Buckthorn Oil - These oils promote skin hydration and lock in moisture to protect your skin from signs of aging and improve its beauty and youthfulness. Rosehip Oil specifically has been used in medical communities around the world for those with serious skin ailments and only recently has North America learned to embrace natural solutions from our ancestors. These two organic oils are full of antioxidants and therefore act as the perfect supporting cast for our best friend - Vitamin C

Resistem (Plant Stem Cells) - This provides the perfect mix of protection from stress-related aging and promotes skin detoxification. Resistem will help your skin regenerate faster while protecting it from environmental stressors.

Hyaluronic Acid (Botanical) - Holding up to 1000 times its weight in water and drawing moisture out of the environment and onto the surface of your skin ,there is not a more effective moisturizing agent on the market today. Penetrates deeply, and actives collagen production for a fresher, younger, firmer, and brighter complexion

Green Tea Extact- The catechins in green tea are a potent antioxidant which also contribute to the overall anti-inflammatory and anti-irritant benefits of this ancient health and beauty secret.

*Disclaimer: I received this product for review purpose, opinions are 100% my own
I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
