Target Spring Preview Voxbox Charles Worthington London ($24 Value!)

 Target in conjunction with Influenster (Comment with an email address, and I can email you an invite---- I have 5) sent me this Voxbox to show the lucky 700 that got picked for this box what Target will be offering this spring when it comes to health and beauty. There were about 12 brands that were sending products out from Crest to Charles Worthington London Hair (What I Got!) 

I Got Charles Worthington London Secrets Collection Volume and Bounce Instant Amplifying Volume Treatment http://www.target.com/p/charles-worthington-instant-amplifying-volume-treatment-6-76-fl-oz/-/A-15056975#prodSlot=medium_1_0&term=Volume%20and%20Bounce%20Instant%20Amplifying%20Volume%20Treatm I posted the link to Target's information on the product if you'd like to buy it or look into it yourself (however it is currently not available in stores or online...) 

I was pleased to be able to try this complementary and give all of you my opinions on this product. I was very happy that this product is ideal for all hair types. I have quite thick hair so most of the times products like this just weigh my hair down and don't do too much to help it. I have to say that I enjoyed this product and thought it did it's job very nicely. It gave my hair volume without adding weight and made my hair appear to have a nice shape and hold all day too without reapplying. I have to say that this may be a new product that I will be using in the future. I think that a tube of this product will last about 4-6 months even if I use it daily which is another plus. Less having to run out and buy more all the time. Thanks again to Target and Influenster. Be sure to drop me a comment if you want me to email you an invite to influenster, all I need is an email address and I will shoot an invite to the first five. Thanks for listening guys!

Jadore Vox Box! $25+ Value!


So thrilled that I was chosen for another Vox Box, I am in love with these things and all the great products I have discovered since becoming a member of Influenster. 

This was the Jadore Voxbox that was created especially for Valentine's Day
The Box Included;

Red Rose Tea
Kiss Eye Lashes
John Freda Frizz Ease
Hershey Kisses 
Boot Botanics Mud Mask

I have had the chance to try all the products since receiving the box and I am thrilled to let you, my readers know what I thought about each item. 

The Red Rose Tea, while I love tea; I tend to be a cold tea drinker so I brewed these up and added lots of ice to have a delicious cup of caramel tea, I also tried the lemon as well. Both were delicious and I actually preferred the lemon to the caramel though. I definitely would try this product again.  This product retails around $4 a box.

The Kiss Eye Lashes were something I normally would not buy for myself. I already have long lashes, so I don't normally have a need for the fakes, I did try these though and enjoyed the thickness that it added to my full lashes, definitely something to remember on nights when I want to go out. This Product retails around $3.

The John Freda Frizz Ease was a product that I had seen previously in stores before getting it in the box. I was very excited to try it and was quite pleased with the results. I tend to have a small problem with frizz, and this took care of the trick, and I saw the results last for days. This product retails anywhere from $12-$15.

Who hasn't had Hershey Kisses??? I was so happy when I opened my vox box and saw these right front and center. It was a family sized bag and I was able to share with lots of family and friends so everyone was able to get their chocolate fix on courtesy of me and Influenster. These are delicious, and the family sized bag retails around $5.

Finally there was the Boots Botanics Mud Mask. This mask was really nice and it felt good and took off a lot of the days buildup and such off my face. I was very pleased with the results and this is a mask that I look forward to using. It was gentle on my skin, and made it look very fresh and clean!

This Voxbox was great. I was very happy to have been able to get it and try all these products. I ended up liking and loving each and everyone of them. Again, thanks to influenster and all the brands that were included in this great Voxbox.

Bzz Agent Tone Package $4 Value!

Bzz Agent Sent me a free Tone Body Wash Along with some coupons to share in exchange for my thoughts on the product. I was thrilled to be able to try a brand I had never used yet and was thrilled with my results. I have really dull and dry winter skin, I have to say that this helped out the dullness and dryness of my skin. I was very pleased with how well this product helped that winter problem of mine. 

I have found Tone at all my local retailers for around $4-$5 dollars. Check out this brand for yourself if you are in the market for a new body wash!

I was given this product complementary in exchange for my opinions, all opinions are my own.

Valentine's Bath & Body Works Deal! $28 Value!

On Valentine's Day Bath & Body Works offered a Free Mad About You Spray with any purchase. 
I bought 2 sanitizers, and got two sprays completely free! This was a $28.00 Value, and I spent under $4 between the two trips!

 All the loot in one picture!
I Got The following completely free!

Yopa Greek Yogurt $1 Value
Limeade Kickstart $1 Value
Private Selection Ultimate Chocolate Chip Cookies $4 Value
 In the box they look like this.....
 What one Cookie Looks like.....And......
Extreme Cookie Close Up!!!

Ok, I got to try another great Private Selection Product courtesy of Kroger and BzzAgent, I am loving this parternship because I love both of them so much on their own that together this is a partnership that I am so happy to be a part of. I was able to try the Ultimate Chocolate Chip Cookies for free by getting a downloadable coupon to my kroger plus card. I loved the convenience of not having to wait for a Bzz package and being able to pick up the cookies literally the same day I joined the campaign. 

Any excuse to go to Kroger is great for me, I love to coupon and my Kroger doubles up to a $1 so a lot of times that equals either free or very close to free products plus all the free product friday downloads are fantastic as well. That's were I got all the freebies listed above either with coupons or with a download. 

I have to say that these cookies were really good. I am a fan of a harder cookie, and most store bought cookies are far too soft for me so this was a great change of pace. I also enjoyed the fact that I could heat it up for about 15 seconds if I wanted a gooey-er and softer cookie.  This cookie was very versatile and I loved that about it.

Since you're mouth is watering, I thought I'd be nice and share a way for you to try these cookies cheaper with a $1 off coupon. http://kroger.softcoin.com/programs/kroger/digital_coupons/?filtertag=PSCOOKIE&assettag=atpscookie&origin=pscookie&ytp=001001000114093084000000
while I tried the ultimate chocolate chip cookie, there are other varieties, 3 others to be exact but I will give you the entire list! 

  • White Chocolate Macadamia Nut – Creamy white chocolate chunks meet crunchy macadamia nuts
  • Ultimate Chocolate Chunk – Discover a devilish amount of rich chocolate chunks in every bite
  • Turtle Brownie – This indulgent brownie cookie is loaded with gooey caramel and high-quality pecans
  • White Chocolate Coconut Almond – White chocolate chunks are balanced by sweet coconut and delicate almond slivers
 

I was able to try this product complementary, all opinions are my own.

Hershey Spreads (Chocolate With Hazelnut) Crowdtap Review

I was lucky enough to be chosen to try a new Hershey product. The product that I got to try was the new Hershey's Spread. There are multiple varieties but I got to try out the Chocolate with Hazelnut.
I thought that this was a great product that can be used in multiple ways. I ended up pairing my spread with fruits and it was delicious, but you can add this to a breakfast in a snap! I think this on waffles, toast or anything of the like would be simply delicious. I cannot wait to go to the local grocery store and buy the other varieties to try as well. 

Thanks again to Crowdtap and to Hershey's for picking me to try this product and share it with family and friends! 

I received this product complementary, all opinions are my own.

Not Your Mother's Clean Freak (Influenster Violet Voxbox)

Not Your Mother's Clean Freak (Influenster Violet Voxbox)

I was so happy to see this product in my Violet Voxbox. I have previously tried a Not Your Mother Product, but this time it was in the hair spray collection. I loved that so I had great expectations about their dry shampoo as well. 

I am happy to report, that I loved their dry shampoo as well. I have not come across a product from The Not Your Mother's Hair Collection that I haven't loved from the start. This product has a regular retail value of about $6 but I was given the opportunity to review and try this product free. All opinions are my own, I am just highlighting the product for my viewers to see and possibly try for themselves. 

The product itself, is so easy to use. All you have to do is spray the product on your roots and work it through with your fingers or a fine comb, couldn't be simpler, and it takes so much less time than washing. Especially when you add in the drying time.

Free W/ Survey Cash/Sywr Points

Both of these Games were on sale for just $2.50!
It was only $3.67 After My Shop Your Way Reward Points were taken off the order
I then used Paypal Survey Cash to cost me nothing!!!!

Montagne Jeunesse Face Masks (Influenster Violet VoxBox)


I absolutely adore these face masks, so when I saw a mask that I actually hadn't tried yet, you can imagine my excitement. I was so thrilled that I ended up using the mask pictured above the same night that I received my Violet VoxBox.

I love that these masks revitalize my skin at such an affordable price (Regular Retail $1.99-2.99) but many beauty retailers (Ulta, Walgreens, Etc.) have these on sale throughout the year. As a matter of fact, I stocked up at Ulta this past weekend during their Stocking Stuffer sale when they were 5/$5. I ended up buying at least $25 worth. 

My favorites so far are the Fruit Smoothie face masks and the face peels. I am so pleased to be able to review a product that I have loved for awhile so I can highlight a great company to my readers. I would like to thank the people at Influenster & Montagne Jeunesse for putting such a great product in our Violet VoxBox.

 The Items I Picked up with the FPCs!
Goodies I scored using Kroger's Double up to $1

Thanks BzzAgent and Kroger for the delicious package! I picked up some Garlic Bread, Shrimp Lo Mein Skillet Meal and Bacon Salad! It had a retail value of over $11, and I made it this past week. The Garlic Bread was to die for, and it is honestly the best Garlic bread that I have ever had, and definitely switching to this brand so thick and rich, just delicious. The salad kit was oh so easy and had all the ingredients, including the ranch in the bag and was prepped in literally under 2 minutes. Same thing with the Shrimp Lo Mein, I was able to prep and have it on the table in under 30 minutes, dinner in 30 minutes in this household, is never accomplished, but now it can be thanks to Kroger Skillet meals, salads, and Garlic bread.
