REVIEW: Cutex Nail Polish Remover Pads

I'm starting off with the first product I used from my Influenster Bloom VoxBox! These individually wrapped nail polish remover pads from the brand Cutex are a-m-a-Z-Z-Z-ing! I love wearing nail polish and I am constantly swatching different polishes for my Instagram account so I go through nail polish remover like crazy! I like to use pure acetone because I don't have the patience to rub my nails for a long period of time or to have to continue applying more remover to get the job done.

When I first opened these up, I kept trying to unfold the pad thinking it would be a bigger sheet, but it turns out, it's a small, thick felt-like pad that isn't big at all! It is really saturated with the remover and it has a strong acetone & lemony scent which I enjoyed. Just from holding the pad, it started to remove my polish so I was already impressed.

I swiped my nails and used the same pad to clean off several layers of different types of nail polishes from my 10 finger nails and it actually worked! The nail polish came off and my nails & cuticles didn't look dry, they were actually moisturized.

I love how convenient they are, too! Great to take them with you on the go and have a fresh mani, wherever you are! Check out my demo and see for yourself!

INFLUENSTER: Bloom VoxBox

I've been on a roll lately with Influenster! They have been kind enough to send me a variety of voxboxes filled with free products for me to test out and review. Today I'll be sharing with you my Bloom VoxBox

It arrived this afternoon and I was so happy when I opened up my mail box and found it there waiting for me! I'll begin by mentioning that the box itself is super cute and it's my favorite color...PURPLE! Perfect for Spring. They're already off to a good start, right?

I immediately opened it up and discovered exciting items to check out. I was very happy to see brands I know and love, but also to find new brands and products that I had never even heard of before! So let's get started...

As you can probably imagine, the star of this box is the Sinful Colors nail polish in the shade "Teal Midnight". I am a nail polish collector and this is one of my favorite brands. They are inexpensive and great quality. They also have many beautiful shades to choose from and recently, they teamed up with Kylie Jenner to create a few limited time collections. The latest one is the "Denim & Bling". I can't wait to see what they'll come up with next. Follow me on Instagram to see photos of my nail polish swatches!

To go along with the nail polish, I got to try out the Cutex Nail Polish Remover Pads and was I impressed with these! Just one individually wrapped pad completely removed several layers of nail polish from my 10 nails! These are definitely going on my wish list. 

From Sunbelt Bakery, I received a delicious granola bar in the Oats & Honey variety. The neat thing about these is that they are brought to our communities each week so the snacks have a bakery-fresh taste and more importantly no preservatives!

The Not Your Mother's Plump for Joy spray is a deliciously scented thickening hair lifter spray that gives body, shine and volume! My hair is pretty thick, but I'm excited to share it with a friend who loves to try volumizing product for her hair.

Another, well known brand that I've used in the past is Secret, but this time it's the Secret Outlast Xtend deodorant. It smells amazing and I love it!

And to finish off, another brand I had never heard of is Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse with their Multi-Purpose Dry Oil! It is an oil, that when you apply it to your body doesn't leave it greasy or oily. It is absorbed by your skin and has a light floral scent. I'm excited to try it in my hair to see if it makes it moisturized and shiny!

Thanks again to Influenster for all these great products! Stay tuned for reviews and demo videos on my YouTube channel!

Here's the unboxing video!

CrowdTap: Curly Hair, Don't Care

My hair in it's natural state is pretty curly. I always try to use a hair straightener to keep the curl out and make my hair straight. As part of my crowdtap mission, I received a complimentary L'Oreal Paris Advanced Hair Care Extraordinary Oil regimen. It included a Shampoo, Conditioner & Hair Mask.

Before I used it, I took a picture of my hair in all it's frizzy-ness glory:

 And right after using all 3 products (my hair was still wet):
All 3 smell great! My hair felt clean after using the shampoo, but I did notice it wasn't really smooth and I definitely needed to apply the conditioner. After using it, my hair felt soft and silky. And then, I decided to follow up with the mask...it felt like a buttery, light, mayo that I was applying to my hair. 

Since it was light and didn't feel heavy or thick, it quickly was absorbed into my hair. It didn't stay on my hands. I loved how it made my hair instantly feel even softer! My bathroom was filled with the scent of amber. 

After rinsing, my hair I did still have some frizz, but the next day, my curls were defined and felt soft.
