Jane Iredale Triple Luxe Lipsticks | Influenster Vox Box

I recently got another Influenster Vox Box, and I think this is the best yet.

I have wanted to try more Jane Iredale products, so I was super excited to be selected for this box.

I am not the biggest fan of traditional lipstick because I am to lazy to reapply through out the day- but I have been reaching for my Wet N Wild and Burt’s Bee’s ones more recently.

Jane Iredale is Vegan and Cruelty Free.

The packaging

The packaging of these lipsticks is spectacular. They are in a weighted gold bullet, with a magnetic cap. They feel very luxurious.

The formula

The formula is very creamy and comfortable. I would say the shades are rather sheer, besides Natalie.

I wouldn’t not say they are long lasting, they definitely come off when drinking, fade through out the day, and do transfer (Sorry again Coty.) But, I did expect this.

I think these will be lovely for my quick daily looks.

The Triple Luxe Lipsticks retail for $35 and come in 15 shades. I could never see my self spending this much on a lip product, it feels unnecessary.

It hurts spending the money on Kat Von D liquid lips and those are one of my favorite lip product formulas and $15 cheaper!

However, if you want to try a comfy luxury feeling lip stick- pick it up Here!

Influenster #DormLife VoxBox | What’s Inside

I absolutely love Influenster. Even if their app is acting up right now, and I can’t complete my tasks. Has anyone else had this issue?

Anyway, I love seeing what they send out in their boxes. Which you get by reviewing products and being chosen to do simple tasks. 

This specific box came out to a total of $31.41, and it was 100% free!! It also contains products I will actually use, super fly Influenster, super fly. 

Alba Botanical Acnedote Face & Body Scrub $10.45 retail value


This is a product I have tried in the past. I am doing a desperate post on it, so I won’t say much. But I will say, I was really pumped when I saw the full size in the box!

Tampax Pocket Pearl $6.99 for 36 pack


I will not get personal use out of these. My birth control has made it to where I do have periods. BUT, I always keep feminine hygiene products in my bag, just Incase there happens to be another lady in need. I have a little kit in an Ipsy bag, these are compact so they are discreet and won’t take up much room! 

Not Your Mothers Natural Dry Shampoo $8.99 retail value


Dry shampoo!! I go through so much dry shampoo, and I really love trying new ones. I have eczema on my scalp, so the fact that this dry shampoo is unscented gives me high hopes. I will update y’all!! The dry shampoo didn’t even have attached tasks to complete, so it’s like a little extra. 

Sinful Colors Polish and Transforming Top Coat $1.99 


The red shade is meant to be the Transforming top coat. Apparently it is different with each use. I have not had good experiences with this brand in the past, so we will see. I may show my home done mani on my Snapchat manda_janette

Sour Punch Bites $1.99 Value


Free candy! What more can I say!? I love Sour Punch Straws, this little treat is right up my alley! 

Balance Cookie Dough $1.00 Value

I wanted to love this, but it was just too bitter for me, sadly. I would like to try their other flavors though. 

That’s it guys! What did you think? Have you received any Vox Boxes? Leave your feed back below!

Ole Henrickson Influenster Vox Box | Product Reviews

Screenshot (16)

If you follow my Instagram, Snap, or YouTube channel; then you have already seen this lovely box.

It is the Ole Henrickson Influenster Vox Box, and boy was it a god send.

It contained the Wash, Toner, and Moisturizer from the Ole Henrickson Balance Oil Controlling line.

This line is meant to be used day or night, and gives your skin a healthy glow. It is powered by the Green Fusion Complex they have made, which contains neem seed oil and AHA’s. The line is supposed to control oil, mattify, and refine pores.

Find Your Balance Oil Control Cleanser $25:

ole

The cleanser has a very clean scent. It left my skin feeling soft, not dried out, nor itchy. I have very sensitive skin, so I just assume it will react when I try something new. This cleanser was able to clear my skin of impurities and diminish my break outs with out stripping my skin. My favorite way to use it is with a Konjac Sponge.

Balancing Force Oil Control Toner $26:

ole1

I really noticed a difference with this toner. I would use it with a cotton pad, and just swipe it over my clean face. It did not sting, smell offensive, or cause any irritation! My only gripe is that I wish it were in a spray bottle, I have been spoiled by those. I suppose I could transfer it to one, but the bottle is so cute.

Counter Balance Oil Control Hydrator $34:

ole2

I love using this at night. It is calming to my skin, has a thicker gel\cream consistency, and leaves my skin feeling fantastic in the morning.

If you apply it before doing makeup, I suggest you have at least an hour in between. I found that it takes wuite a while to actually skin in to the skin. This is fine at night, not so much when getting ready in the morning. The rest of the line is fantastic day or night!

Overall, I really love this line! I have noticed great improvements in my skin over all. There are not as many random dry spots, and my breaks out have became much more mild than they used to be. I would consider paying the money to purchase this line, when I use up what I have received. The best part though, the brand IS cruelty free!!

I did receive this line for review, but all opinions are my own.

Thank you so much for reading, I hope you enjoyed it. What are your favorite Ole Henrickson products? Have you tried this line? Comment below!

L’oreal Ever Pure Hair Care |Vox Box

Before I get in to the actual review of this line, I wanted to let you all know that I am currently on vacation.  This post is being written from my phone, therefore the format will be a little off.

A few weeks ago I got this new line from L’oreal in a Vox Box from Influenster.  I want it to be very clear thay this is NOT a company I purchase from, due to my cruelty free stance.  I did, however,  want to try this line because of how it is supposed to be formulated. 

  • Not sulfates
  • No dyes
  • No harsh chemicals
  • No paraben
  • It is vegan

The bottles also state that they are cruelty free, but L’oreal tests where required by law. Rather than leaving those places.

*I did test these over a week long period, even a few days more*

Shampoo:

For a sulfate free shampoo, I was very pleased with the lather it gave me. Sulfate free shampoos tend to lack the latherimg capablitites. The scent (rosemary), is also very nice. It did not irritate my scalpe, which is easy to do. My hair felt very clean after ward’s,  and I didn’t feel the need to ‘re wash it the following day. 👍👍👍👍. Not five beacuse of the brand.

Conditioner:

I have to say, this is a fantastic conditioner for the drugstore. It left my hair feeling great, even after the first use. And with out all the chemicals!  After extended use my hair was softer and much less frizzy.👍👍👍👍

Elixir:

I had high hopes for  this product because I am a big fan of hair elixir type things. When I used it and let my hair air dry it did nothing. If I used it before styling or on dry hair it made my hair feel almost gummy in parts. This is a big 👎👎👎

*I did get these products for free, but all opinions are my own. *

I hope you enjoyed this quick review, while I was on vacation.  Thank you for reading! Find me on snap and instagram @ manda_janette

Influenster and ELF Vox Box | Un-Boxing

1e

Before I start….I had a few Un-Boxing posts planed for this week. But, my terrible new post man has put all but this one package in the wrong post box. He put it in the lacked post box of an empty apartment. SO, if his mistake is ever corrected, then I may have a few more from other companies coming up! Now, to the box that actually got to me.

If you have ever read my blog before, than you already know I love ELF. Like seriously, love them. They are cruelty free and a ton of their products are vegan. They are also insanely inexpensive! When I was chosen to get this box, there was no way I was going to turn down free ELF products!

The whole idea of it is to introduce new people to ELFs new skin care, but they did throw in two makeup products as well, I think I will start with those!

ie

The first makeup product is something I already love. The Matte Lip Color in the shade “Wine”. I have all of the shades of their matte lip colors, and wear them constantly. Sense I already have this product, I am throwing the one I got in this Vox Box in one of my friends Christmas gifts.

ie1

The second makeup product is the Baked Highlight and Bronzer Duo in “Bronzed Glow”.

Guys, their normal baked highlighters disappoint me, bit this one is beautiful! I can not wait to use it and do a full review. This is the duo swatched, dry!

Now to the skin care!

index

The first skin care type item is one that y’all already know that I am obsessed with. The ELF Lip Exfoliator. In the Vox Box I got the Mint Maniac flavor, which isn’t my top pick, but it will be good to have as a back up when the one I just got runs out!

ie3

The next thing is the ELF Mineral Infused Primer. I am like 99% positive this is the first ever primer I ever used. And from memory I really liked it. I am looking forward to trying it out again, especially for y’all. (So sweet.)

ie4

The last thing in the box is something I have been wanting to try, but just never purchased. The ELF Hydrating Bubble Mask. This is supposed to work really well and it seems pretty neat. I do not have any other masks that squeeze out the top the way that this one does, kind of cool. I am excited to try this one out.

Influenster #PepVoxBox UN-Boxing

101

Happy first day of October!! My favorite month of the year!
Tonight I am bringing you an Influenster UN-boxing. If you do not know what Influenster is, it is a site where you review products and increase your social impact to get free stuff. I have gotten a couple different boxes from them. If you would like to sign up, Do so here!

Yes, that is an affiliate link, you get to sign up to earn free stuff and it helps me out as well. Which I would really love(:

This box is a back to college theme, which is fantastic for me. As a 20 year old pre-law student I love anything free, especially if it is something I will use up.

Let’s get in to this box.

Pure Ice Shine Gel Polish: In my main picture I have shown you everything I got. I am going to start off with something I have been enjoying already. I got the gel polish in “shock and awesome”, which is a beautiful berry shade. I have been wearing it on my toes and love it! I also got the gel top coat, and I really have noticed that it is making the polish last longer on my toes. I did want to note that the shade takes a couple coats to make it opaque and the formula is streaky. It is under $3 though, so I wasn’t expecting something great.

7th Heaven Exfoliator & Masque: I love face masks and the scent of lemon. This is both! I have not tried this out yet, but if you follow my Snap Chat (manda_janette) you will get to see me do so.

Max Factor Eyeliner and Mascara: If you have didn’t already hear, a small line of Max Factor products have been released in the US. If you also didn’t hear, they are owned by Proctor and Gamble meaning they are not Cruelty Free. I am conflicted of actually trying and reviewing these products of not. If I do not I will end up throwing them in a give away at some point during the holiday season.

Simple Skin Care Facial Cleansing Wipes:I already know I love this product! I threw the small travel pack in my purse. Facial wipes always come in handy.

Land O’ Frost Deli Snackers: This was actually a coupon to get the item for free. I, however, do not eat consume meat, but Josiah does. I am going to let him get some and do my review on them for influenster!  I think it is a little strange that right before I was chosen for this box I got a survey from them on my eating habits and did select that I do not consume meat, but whatever. He will enjoy it.

Kauai Coffee: We both tried these this morning and love them! It is just coffee in a K-cup that has a rich flavor. I put Pumpkin spice creamer in mine and it was amazing. The cups are also biodegradable, so this may be my coffee brand of choice from now on!

Over all: I got some awesome stuff I am already falling in love with! The 3 things I won’t use I have either some one in my house who will or will be included in a give away. I honestly do not think anything free can be a complete miss, so thank you Influenster!

Thank you so much for reading! What do you think of this box? Did you sign up for influenster? Comment below! Want more B&T? Read this next! You can also follow my Instagram and Snap Chat @manda_janette

TidBit Post: Zzz Quil Sleep Aid; an Insomniacs Opinion.

zzz

If you have yet to become a part of Influenster, I really think you should! Here is a link where you can sign up!

Besides being able to try beauty products for free, you get to also have the chance to sample other types of products. In this case it was the Zzz Quil sleep aid. I have suffered with Insomnia for many years, and I can tell you first hand that it is very difficult to find an aid that helps you fall and stay asleep, but doesn’t turn you into a zombie the next day.

I have had prescriptions for sleep, and never have I tried one I like. On top of them not working, the can become addictive, as with many medications.  I have taken Benedryl on a parental recommendation, but I always feel groggy the next morning.

This Zzz Quil is different. I did fall asleep faster and didn’t wake up through out the night. The next morning I even felt like a normal human being, not dead and half functioning. But, I would not go as far as to say this will be my nightly sleep aid. After using it for an extended period of time, I did notice a lack in its effectiveness. The body just builds up a tolerance I suppose.

I think this is a great product to have on hand for every now and then, I especially think it is great for travel. Sleeping in strange places can be hard, it is nice to have help. I would not say if you suffer from insomnia to stop taking any prescribed medications, rush to the store and buy cases of the stuff. It is a good aid for the occasional restless night, but not the miracle sleep aid Insomniacs wish for.

*I was sent this item for review by Influenster, but all opinions are honest and my own.*

What helps you sleep when you feel restless or in general?
