Influensters #UniVoxBox 2014

I am so happy that I was chosen by Influenster for the #UniVoxBox this is there second box this year and I am thrilled I got it! Visit www.influenster.com for information or comment me for an invite I have a few left. I received 6 full size products to test compliments of Influester and I am thrilled. They all look really amazing and I will post my review of each individual product below!

I received the box on Saturday afternoon and immediately opened it. There were three full size beauty products that I could not wait to sink my teeth into but I contained myself because the Red Rose REAL TEA Premium Water Enhancer really caught my eye. I got it in the Black Tea flavor. The retail value is $4.49 and I received for testing purposes complimentary from Influenster. I grabbed my favorite glass filled it with 8 ounces of water as recommended on the Red Rose REAL TEA Bottle squeezed one good squirt and immediately my water turned into tea. I did give a stir and drank it on the front porch as I looked at the rest of my products. This Premium Water Enhancer is SO GOOD!! I never tried Red Rose Tea brand until that Saturday afternoon and I am so glad I got it in my UniVoxBox. Its not overly sweet just a hint which defiantly makes me happy because I don't like my tea to sweet if sweetened at all. On a side note I drank this the next day hot and its just as good. The Red Rose REAL TEA Premium Water Enhancer get a 5 $$$$$ from me FOR TASTE AND GOOD QUALITY ALSO PRICE IS RIGHT and I received a $1.00 off coupon from Influenster on my future purchase which is the next time I go grocery shopping. On another note I put this Red Rose REAL TEA Premium Water Enhancer in my purse along with a water bottle and while at work on Monday I used two squirts in a 16 ounce water bottle and I had lightly sweetened tea in an instant at lunch time. Then after work I have to classes and had another water bottle and the tea enhancer in my tote bag with my books. Half way through the first lecture I made another bottle of yummy tea! This is truly a convenient way to have a great drink anytime anywhere!Red Rose Real Tea Premium Water Enhancer I received from @Influenster complimentary for testing purposes in the black tea and its easy to use and tastes great! #realtea  http://aguidetowhatsinsideyourbeautybag.blogspot.com/

As I sat on the porch sipping my tea I grabbed the next thing out of my #UniVoxBox which was the Acroball Pure White Pen from Pilot, I received it for testing purposes complimentary of Influenster. I always thought a pen was a pen until I started writing my grocery list starting with the #realtea at the top of my list. This pen was awesome. Smooth yellow rubber grip but not too soft of a grip. It wrote in black and the ink was smooth. It left no ink clumps or anything like that. I have the feeling this is one someone in my house will want to steal (in fact my sister was eyeing it up as I was using it-lol) The retail value for this awesome pen is $4.59 for a three pack and Influenster included a $1.50 off coupon for a 2 pack or larger so I will be writing that as number two on list and I will share a pen or two with my sister. This pen get a 5 $$$$$ FROM ME FOR IT GREAT QUALITY AND ABLITY TO NOT SLIP OUT OF MY HAND WHILE I WRITE. IT ALSO DOES NOT LEAVE INK CLUMPS ON THE PAPER AND WRITES SMOOTHLY!
Pilot Acroball PureWhite   Acroball PureWhite combines a glosst white barrel with Spring Pantone inspired grip colors and smooth writing advanced ink, which combines the viberant color of gel with the quick drying benefits of ballpoint ink, so you can write effortlessy.   Thank you influenster how you guys knew I needed a new pen. I'm always losing mines.

IMPRESSED! That is what I have to say about the imPRESS Press on Manicure by Broadway Nails that I received in my #UniVoxBox complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes. I am someone who has been preoccupied about my nails since well forever! I will buy and try anything that has to do with making my natural nails look better or when I am short on time and have somewhere important to be and can’t get a manicure I have found the answer to that problem! On Sunday morning I decided to give myself a manicure that would look great for the whole upcoming work week. The imPRESS Press on Manicure that I received from Influenster was the first product I thought of so I read the directions and in less then 10 minutes I had these BEAUTIFUL nails that looked like a Gel Manicure you would pay upward of $45.00 for at a nail salon! They were quick and simple to apply and last for up to a week! There are 24 nail covers in 12 sizes! They come in solid colors which retail for $5.99 and in prints which retail for $7.99. I received the solid color one in FIRST DATE which is a brown mocha color. This was a perfect neutral Influenster provided me with because it would match whatever I would wear to work in the upcoming work week. I am in LOVE with my #impressmanicure. If it doesn’t seem clear yet on how I feel about these nails I will GIVE IMPRESS PRESS ON MANICURE A 5 $$$$$ ON VALUE, BEAUTY, EFFECTIVENESS AND QUILTIY. THIS IS IN MY BEAUTY BAG AND ON MY SHOPPING LIST!

I was getting ready for work and school on Monday morning when I decided to give the makeup in my #UniVoxBox a try. The first thing I grabbed and was excited to use was Rimmel London Stay Matte Liquid Mousse Foundation retailing for $4.99-$5.49. I got mine from Influenster complimentary for testing purposes and they even gave me the correct shade. I was eager to try and I am glad I got it. The foundation is so light and really is a mousse. It goes on easily blends well and really covers. However, what really made me happy is that it was matte just like it said it would be. Rimmel London really delivered a great foundation! I tend to get shine in my T-Zone and this matte all day! Even after working, going to class and the gym my skin looked flawless! Not a blemish was revealed after a long 16 hour day! I must say that RIMMEL LONDON STAY MATTE LIQUID MOUSSE FOUNDATION GETS A 5 $$$$$ FROM ME FOR ITS ABILITY TO COVER FLAWS, CONTROL SHINE AND FEEL LIKE NOTHING IS ON YOUR FACE FOR 16 HOURS! I made the #StayMatteSwitch and this is a permanent staple in my Beauty Bag!

My favorite way to finish any look in the morning or to pick up my look half way to through the day is a swipe of lipstick. I love the latest Spring 2014 trends being bright and bold! Apparently Influenster is also ready for this new Spring Trend because they sent me NYC New York Color Expert Last Lip Color in Forever Fuchsia. It was complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes and I was so EXCITED to try it. The retail value is $1.99 which is the perfect price to try something that is trending for a season. I grabbed this to finish my look and I was so THRILLED with the result. It goes on creamy. Feels soft and silky better than a lip balm! The color was intense but not overly saturated with pigment just the right amount to brighten my face and make my lips look juicy! I wore it for about 7 hours and it still felt smooth and had shine! I did NOT need lip gloss. I reapplied after work before going to class and I got so many compliments through out the day. No one believed that it was from NYC and only costs a $1.99! They were super excited to try it themselves so I had invited them to Influenster of course and told them to find the lipstick itself at Walmart! This is a great lipstick and the color is perfect! I give NYC EXPERT LIP COLOR IN FOREVER FUCHSIA A 5 $$$$$ FOR A MOISTURIZING MY LIPS ALL WHILE BEING A HOT POP OF COLOR FOR SPRING 2014! IT GLIDED ON SMOOTH LASTED FOR 7 HOURS AND NEVER MADE MY LIPS FEEL DRY! GREAT AMOUNT OF PIGMENT AND IS A PERMANT STAPLE IN MY BEAUTY BAG!
Expert Last Lip Color in Forever Fushia. It's so in this season, perfect for spring! #ExpertLast http://aguidetowhatsinsideyourbeautybag.blogspot.com/

The sixth and final product in my #UniVoxBox is something that I could just grab and use I had to wait until well that time of the month to use it. I will not go into graphic details about my period but I will tell you that I got a full box 16 count of Playtex Sport Fresh Balance Tampons valued at $3.99-$4.99. These were complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes and they were extremely welcomed! Face it we all get our periods and we all need female care products so to get a whole box for free was well AWESOME! These were different than what I usually buy which was welcomed. They were a regular absorbency but for me what was different was that they were lightly scented. I was worried at first but I used one and had no issues as in irritation or leaks! That was great so I put them to the test and used them for what they are also intended for Sports! I play tennis once a week with a friend and I used on of these for a two hour game. I had NO PROBLEMS! Leak free and everything was right where its supposed to be. My final test was during a Yoga class I teach and again no leaks just great protection! The worries I had about the scent in them were for nothing because it did not bother me a bit it actual made me feel really confident at the Yoga class so I give PLAYTEX SPORT FRESH BALANCE 5 $$$$$ ON THE FACT THAT THE TAMPONS DO THEIR JOB! IT GAVE ME PROTECTION WHILE JUST AT WORK AND WHILE PLAYING SPORTS. NO LEAKS AND NO ODOR! THEY ARE THE PERFECT ADDITION TO ANY WOMANS BEAUTY BAG/GYM BAG OR PURSE SO THAT WE CAN #PlayOn no matter what time of the month it is!
Playtex Sport Fresh Balance. $3.99-$4.99  Play without limits. I'm not a tampons person. I like to use pads, but I'm willing to try it out. Most likely im going to be sharing with my mom and sister.
