Venus & Olay Razor Review

When I got my Love VoxBox from Influenster one of the items included was a new Venus & Olay Razor. I was super excited to try this because I normally use the cheap 2 blade razors to shave with. I was really excited to get to try this new razor out.

When I opened the razor the first thing that I noticed was that it has 2 good sized Olay Moisture bars on it, one on top and one on bottom. Seeing those had me a little worried that it would make it more cumbersome for me to shave since its already hard on me with my neuromuscular disease. I was pleasantly surprised at the fact that the bars have a little 'give' to them and move so that they can contour around your body. The handle had a nice soft grip on it so it doesn't slip out of your hand. I loved the fact that it has 5 blades in it, it ment it only took 1-2 passes on one spot to get all the hairs gone unlike my other razors that took 3-5 passes over one spot. The razor also came with a suctioned wall hanger so I can store the razor up out of reach from little exploring hands. I really liked how smoothly this razor shaved, and with the Olay Moisture bars on it, it eliminated the need for any shaving cream and left my skin feeling super smooth afterwords. I was able to go 3-4 days before my legs would get subbly again which was also an added bonus.

Truvía® natural sweetener Product Review

 (My pictures have been deleted due to an error. I'm in the process of taking new ones sorry for the delay)

I got a sample box of Truvía natural sweetener from Influenster in part of my LoveVox Box that I received last week. The box was full of a bunch of different products to test and review, Truvía being one of those products. Truvía is a product that I have never tried before so it was a new experience for me to try it out.
I'm normally not big on using sweeteners, most that I try have a really fake taste to them. I was very surprised when I put Truvía in my tea! It doesn't have the fake taste that others have and I even put some on my finger to taste by itself. One packet flavored my tea perfectly, unlike the couple cubes of pure sugar that I normally have to use. I really love that I don't have to use a ton like I do with sugar or other similar sweeteners, I like my tea to be sweet and its always hard to get it just right but the Truvía was the perfect sweetness for me.

Truvía can be used in may different things from coffee's, to teas, to on your cereal or even in your cooking. I have yet to try it other then in my tea since thats normally when I use sugar, but with the nice taste of Truvía I think it would taste good with almost anything that you'd use normal sugar for. The only thing I 'warn,' again, is you don't need a ton of Truvía like other sweeteners, a little goes along with with Truvía.

Truvía® natural sweetener

Truvía® natural sweetener is the first natural, great-tasting, zero-calorie sweetener born from the leaves of the stevia plant.

o One packet of Truvía® natural sweetener provides the same sweetness as two teaspoons of sugar.
o Truvía® natural sweetener is refreshingly uncomplicated. Add it to coffee and tea. Sprinkle it on fruit and cereal.
o Truvía® natural sweetener is a great alternative for people with diabetes. It is also kosher certified.

Where to Buy
Truvía® natural sweetener is available nationally at most major retailers and in package sizes of 40-count, 80-count, 140-count and a spoonable jar. Find a store here.

Kiss Nail Dress Review

I was super lucky to get picked to get a VoxBox from Influenster! I got my box last week and it was stuffed with a ton of products to try and review. One of the products in the box was Kiss Nail Dress ($6.99).

I'm normally not one to paint my nails or do much to them, the feeling of paint and such bugs me for some reason. Since I normally don't like the feeling of stuff on my nails (fingers or toes) I was a little worried about trying the Kiss Nail Dress. I decided to put them on the night I got them, just before bed.

When I opened the box of Kiss Nail Dress I was expecting this long list of instructions on how to put them on. I was very surprised to see the instructions so short and simple! Its not a big complex process to put them on like other nail products, which is awesome especially if you wanted to throw some on last minute before a big event. I put mine on my fingers and toes and went to bed to see how well they would last over night since I toss and turn alot. I woke up the next morning and was very surprised that they were all still in place and looked just the same as they did 8hrs before! What else was nice, they didn't bug me like painting my nails normally does :). The next day I went about my day, almost forgetting that I had these on; I washed dishes, washed my hands a ton of times, went to the store, made lunch for company and the greatest thing, the nails weren't chipped or pealing off like normal nail polish would after all that wear and tear. I left my fingers on for a couple days and they lasted all the way up till I took them off, and taking them off was just as simple as putting them on no long process with that either. My toes are still pretty and still have the Kiss Nail Dress on them!

Over all I really liked these, they were quick and simple for people like me that don't like to take a lot of time to look nice, but they are also nice and beautiful for people that like to dress up. There are a lot of different designs that are offered so you can dress up any outfit and event. Quick, easy and beautiful, I would suggest everyone try them out!

Kiss Nail Dress

Fashion That Sticks

Introducing Kiss Nail Dress, ultimate nail fashion for tips and toes! Just peel, apply, and shape for a manicure that lasts up to 10 days. On in minutes, off in seconds without remover. Nail Dress is available in 18 different styles, many of them featuring 3-dimensional jeweled designs. Check out Peplum, a deep black with multi-colored gems for a pop of color, or Babydoll, for a golden and glamorous jeweled look. Skip the topcoat, Nail Dress has it built in.

With 28 strips in each package, you can cut up your extras to create designs that can be used on top of polished or artificial nails. Nail Dress doesn’t dry out the way other polish strips can, so you can save them to use on your next DIY mani. A nail design booklet is included in each package, just in case you need a little inspiration.

And don’t forget about your feet! Nail Dress looks awesome on toes, too – just use the square side of the sticker for a perfect fit.
