Smooth as Silk - #PureSilk

Oh yeah...! Nothing like having smooth silky legs, right? It's one of those things we can all appreciate. I usually shave using just soap & water, but I recently had the opportunity to try out Pure Silk Shave Cream (complimentary thanks to Influenster #VowVoxBox). I don't think I'll ever be able to shave without it again! What a difference! It's kind of difficult to explain exactly what I mean because obviously when I shave, the hair is no longer on my legs, but after using Pure Silk...WOW...now, that's what I call smooth skin!

I received the scent "Raspberry Mist" which smells heavenly. It's a combination of fruits & sweet candy! The cream is very thick & I didn't have to use a large amount to get great coverage on my legs! Oh, and one more thing - the can is rust-proof so it won't leave a nasty stain in my bathtub! Happy shaving my friends! #PureSilk

The suggested retail price for the 5 oz. can is $1.49 and $2.19 for the 8 oz.

BzzAgent - Mattel BOOMco. Blasters

Having the opportunity to try out a brand new product that hasn't been released yet is one of the most exciting feelings and I'm so glad to be able to share our experience with you guys! Of course, the fact that it is complimentary makes it even more special!

We received an ENORMOUS box in the mail.
I convinced my son to help me film an 'unboxing' video, but did not tell him that the product was actually something for him to test out. He accepted the challenge and even brought a handy tool to help me cut the box open. He is so cute!

To his surprise & my total amazement, there were 2 Mattel BOOMco. Blasters for us to try out along with an extra Smart Stick Dart Pack that had 16 extra darts! We could hardly contain our excitement as we finished filming the video. The smaller one is called the Twisted Spinner Blaster and has 8 Smart Stick darts.

The bigger one (which is also my personal favorite) is called the Rapid Madness Blaster and it comes with 30 Smart Stick darts and a 20-dart clip. Wanna know why it's my favorite? The darts fly out so fast, it feels like I'm shooting a machine gun!

Both of them come with their own Smart Stick target. And can you believe that they don't require any batteries?! That is a huge plus in my book!

Here are the things I love about these darts:
They only stick to the Smart Stick targets (believe it or not)! I didn't believe it either until we started using them and noticed that the darts won't even stick to the glass doors! Amazing! If they get dusty and don't stick as well, you just rinse them off with water and they're good to go.

There is only one tiny thing I don't like: I noticed that when playing outdoors, the darts tend to get dirty more quickly (which makes sense) and have to be rinsed off more often because they don't stick as much. But we love to play indoors so it's not a big deal.
We are really enjoying these awesome Mattel BOOMco. Blasters (yes, I'm actually having fun with it, too)! And will continue to #HaveABlast! 

RELEASE DATE: 06/29/14
SOLD AT: Walmart, Kmart, Toys R Us, Target, Amazon.com, & Shop.Mattel.com

Influenster - Vow VoxBox

"I do!"....those 2 little words are the beginning of a magical journey...MARRIAGE!

It is the time of year when so many decide to take this huge step and pledge their love to each other by exchanging vows. And who doesn't love a great wedding? Influenster has once again shared with me a very special VoxBox filled with complimentary goodies "for the brides, bridesmaids, mothers-of-the-bride, wedding guests, and wedding crashers of Influenster Nation!"

These are the items I received & I'm so excited to try them out!

Right off the bat, I can tell you that one of  my favorites is the Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure nail polish in the shade "Barracuda" #360. I couldn't wait to put this on my nails and see how beautiful it looks! Not only is it beautiful, but it also has 7 benefits in 1 bottle: base coat, strengthener, growth treatment, salon-inspired color, top coat, chip-resistance and a gel finish, too! The only thing I did not like is that I had to use about 3 coats to get the opaque look I wanted.

Next, we've got the Olay Regenerist Luminous Tone Perfecting Cream which smells heavenly! It is supposed to fade the look of dark spots in 8 weeks so I'm looking forward to seeing the results! I already started using it and I love how moisturized my skin feels. I'm combining this with the EcoTools Pure Complexion Sponge to change up my facial routine and it seems to be working just fine! The sponge is handmade with 100% natural ingredients and is for sensitive skin.

To continue with the theme of keeping my skin looking fresh and beautiful, the next product is a bottle of Pure Silk Shave Cream in the scent Raspberry which smells delicious. I've used Pure Silk shaving cream before so I know how good they work and how soft they leave my legs after I shave which is perfect for the summer time!

And for those "emergency" moments when you spill a drop of coffee or food on your clothes, there's a Tide To Go pen which will help you get the stain out wherever you are! I'm keeping it in my purse to take with me on the go!

Lastly, there was a post card with information about Riley & Grey. You can visit them to create your own wedding website. The cost listed is $35/month or $240/year.  Those are all the items in my Vow VoxBox and I will continue to use them and keep you updated.

If you'd like more details, please see my unboxing video below.

Spring Fling VoxBox - Influenster

My Spring Fling VoxBox from Influenster is here!
And I'm excited to share with you my thoughts on the complimentary products I received for testing purposes.

Here's what was inside my box:

Softlips Cube - $3.49
I absolutely love the lip balm! It has SPF 15 and smells heavenly. My scent is Pomegranate Blueberry which smells fruity-licious, but they also have a Fresh Mint & Vanilla Bean. It definitely leaves my lips feeling soft and hydrated. The packaging is adorable and also seems durable. I'm going to have to get the other 2 scents! *I even created a Softlips Cube 6 second Vine video!

Rimmel London Scandaleyes Retro Glam mascara - $5.99
I've been using the Rimmel mascara for a while now and it's one of my favorites. I love the shape of the brush and how easy it is to apply the mascara. I also really like the thickness of the packaging because it's easy to hold on to. My lashes look thicker, longer and very black! #RetroGlam

NIVEA Skin Firming Hydration Lotion - $2.49 for 2.5 oz/$10.99 for 13.5 oz
It does say that you'll see results in about 2 weeks so I won't really know how much "firming" it can do yet, but I love the scent. And the texture is smooth and not greasy!

Kiss Everlasting French Nails - $6.49
OMG! I'm in love with these nails! They are a snap to apply! Each nail comes with a tab on the tip which makes handling even the smallest nail super easy! The kit includes 28 nails, pink gel glue, mini nail file, and a manicure stick. Everything you need to have a perfect manicure in just a few minutes. The best thing is that they look so natural, no one can tell they aren't my real nails! CLICK HERE to see for yourself! I highly recommend these.
Labor Day Movie Peach Pie Car Freshener
I don't think the delicious peach pie freshener is for sale, but the movie is! Starring Kate Winslet & Josh Brolin; it's available now on Blu-ray, DVD & Digital HD for $19.99

Really enjoyed watching it. Even though it seemed a bit slow when it started, the movie turned out to be great! An incredible story! I won't spoil it for you, but I will say that there's a peach pie scene...yummy!

Playtex Sport Fresh Balance -  $3.99 - $4.99
To be honest, I haven't used this specific type of product in a long time, but I have tried other Playtex brand products and I'm happy with them. The first thing I noticed about these, is that because they are "lightly scented", I already like them more. I really enjoy things that smell nice and I love that they have Odor Shield. They are also the perfect size & flexible so that's always a plus! They will definitely continue to protect me while I #PlayOn this summer! @PlaytexSportandGentle
