Influenster VoxBox

This post is going to be a long one. I received the Influenster VoxBox this May and will now review the products for you.

Item One: Bath and Body Works Body Spray - Paris Amour

I wear perfume every day, but I never wear body sprays because the smell fades quickly. I did not like the smell of this, but everyone has different tastes and I'm sure some people would like it.

 Item Two: Sally Hansen Salon Effects: Nail Polish Strips

Sigh. This was made with real glitter. That means that when you try to get a straight edge on your nail by filing it, the entire piece of glitter comes off, along with the stick nail strip. Can you see that on my thumb?
It also means that it was a huge pain in the ass to remove.
I do not like nail strips as a rule because I can never make them look as good as I'd like.

 Item Three Soy Joy Bar - Blueberry

I had already take a bite of it when I realized I need to take a picture of it. Lol. These are gluten free which is good for those that are allergic to gluten. They tasted pretty bad though. One bite was all I could take.

Item Four Aveeno - Daily Moisturizing Body Wash

Ah, Aveeno, how I love you. This smells very nice and I've been using it when I shower. Does it make "visibly healthier skin?" I have no idea. I can never tell a difference with that stuff.

Item Five Sheer Cover - Concealer Fair/Medium (the lightest they have)

As you may be able to tell, my skin is very pale. When it comes to face makeup, I am always the lightest color. Normally number 01 titled Porcelain or something. 
Basically this concealer wasn't light enough to work for me. If you don't already know this, the rule for face makeup is that it should match your skin tone before you begin to blend it in. 

Item Six Chapstick - Lip Shield 365 

This chapstick has SPF 50+. Can someone tell me what 50+ means? Is that like, SPF 52 but they thought it'd be stupid to put that so they just use the plus sign? 
Anyways, this smells like a combination of citrus and sunscreen and I actually like it. It feels good on, and the smell/taste isn't too strong.

 Item Seven Dr Sholl's For Her Ball of Foot

I haven't tried this yet. But I will. Maybe.

Love, Bethany

Where Have I Been?

So sorry fellow bloggers! I've been in Ohio for my boyfriend's brother's high school graduation. When I returned, it was back to work and so forth. I've been a little stressed. But I have continued to take pictures of my nails.

The worst part about being gone is not commenting on all of your lovely nails. I feel bad :(

I'll try to catch up! The gorgeous Lizzy always sends me an email and checks up on me when I've missed a few days. She's the best :D

So here are some nails. I wore these for graduation. See how far behind I am on posting? Graduation was three weeks ago!

Essie - Geranium (2 coats)
Seche Vite top coat

Although there are many different colors of geranium, this color perfectly matches the red/orange geraniums. My grandmother always has geraniums at her house on the lake. 

Isn't this polish great? 

Love, Bethany
