Bonita VoxBox | July 2016

IMG_6891

I received my first ever VoxBox from Influenster and it was full of goodies!

This particular box was called the Bonita VoxBox and it included the following:

  • A full-size bottle of Dickinson’s Enhanced Witch Hazel
  • A sample and coupon from Revlon
  • An individual serving of Fiber One brownies
  • A generous sample of Madam C.J. Walker Beauty Culture Dream Come True Wonderful Pre-Wash Protein Treatment and Deep Conditioning Masque
  • A full-size bottle of SinfulColors nail polish

I’ve tried the Dickinson’s Enhanced Witch Hazel hydrating toner and it leaves my skin feeling moisturized but not oily.  The only thing that I am not happy with is the scent.  I can’t describe it but I was expecting a mint scent maybe?  Something fresh and light?  But this toner is great so I will definitely use the entire product.

Next was the sample from Revlon.

I’ve already tried both colors and they both felt moisturizing but they stayed “wet” feeling and I’m not a super fan of lip gloss.  It did come with a coupon so I may buy one of the lipsticks but probably not the lip gloss.

Marvin and I shared this single serving size of Fiber One Brownies.  Marvin didn’t care for them.  He said that they lacked flavor.  I thought they were alright.  I mean it’s not like a for real brownie with all it’s fatty goodness.

When we unboxed this in the video I thought it was a face mask and I was like, eh.  But it turns out that it is a hair masque and I’m all about trying that!!  I will be trying it soon so watch my blog for my thoughts on this.

The last product from the box was this full-size nail polish from SinfulColors.  I really liked the color.  I have tried this and had it on for almost 4 full days and so far it is holding up well!  I’m doing a separate blog post on this as well so stay tuned!

We’re All Matte Here | SinfulColors Nail Polish

IMG_7081

I received this bottle of SinfulColors Limited Time Porcelain Matte nail polish in my recent Bonita VoxBox and so far I am loving it!  It’s a great summer color and usually retails for $1.99-$2.99 in stores.

Thursday night I painted my nails.  I first started with a base coat of Bonder by Orly.  I then applied two coats of the SinfulColors polish in We’re All Matte Here and ended with a topcoat of Essie Gel-setter topcoat and it wore very well!

When the polish dries it has a flat or matte finish, and it is part of the porcelain matte line so that makes sense.  When I added the Essie gel-setter top coat it gave it a really great shine and helped my polish to last longer.  I haven’t tried the polish without a gloss topcoat yet but when I do, I’m sure I’ll mention it on SnapChat or my IG or something.

Here’s how my nails look after 4 days.

As you will notice there is some wear but overall I think it lasted well.  Especially considering a manicure at the salon usually lasts me about 2-3 days before chipping etc.  Since it wore so well last night I added another coat of polish and gel-setter topcoat and my nails look fresh and ready to go for a few more days!

ZzzQuil Sleep-Aid Review

IMG_6789

I tried ZzzQuil™ Sleep-Aid from the makers of Vicks NyQuil™ the other night.  I typically will wake up several times a night just thinking about things like what I need to do the next day.  I was hoping that by taking these 2 ZzzQuil™ LiquiCaps would help me have a more restful nights sleep.

I went to bed around my usual time of 10:15 p.m. after taking the ZzzQuil™ with a glass of water.  I also have a FitBit™ so I knew that it would help me track my sleep.  Here’s a snapshot of my sleep quality from that evening.

Now the initial restless/awake time was somewhat normal.  I did not feel like the ZzzQuil™ helped me fall asleep any faster than not taking it.

What was interesting though is the additional restless and awake periods I experienced.  My expectation was that I would sleep through the night and possibly only wake to use the restroom but as you can see, that was not the case.  I was actually restless and awake a little more than usual.

Based on my personal experience though, it’s not a product I would recommend.  The product did come with a $2 coupon inside so I am tempted to purchase the product so that I can try it again to see if I have a different experience.

Have you ever tried this?  Did it help you have a better night’s sleep?

Stay awesome y’all!! ~lisa
