Rosy Voxbox
Greetings beauties! I recently received another complimentary VoxBox from to share with you all. This box contains some much needed travel sized items that will be great to keep in my purse. 

Check out the link at the bottom of this blog post to sign up for your own.


Kinky Hair

Silver capped shoes

Fancy Feet Foot Petals 
I'm always excited to try any product that could possibly add comfort to a pair of heels or flats. These foot petals claim to keep your feet cool and dry while providing cushion to the ball of your feet. This product is soft to the touch and provides cushion but not for a prolonged period of time. I enjoyed this more for its ability to provide grip; preventing my feet from sliding forward in heels. I could see myself purchasing this product in the further to provide comfort to a pair of open toed shoes. 

secret clinical review

Secret Clinical Strength Deodorant

Secret deodorant has always been my go to deodorant for those times that I choose to wear it. This product claims to offer 48 hours of odor protection as well as the ability for the product to adapt and respond. I cannot attest to the 2 day performance claims, but it definitely held up during my work out session. 

beach babe review

Not Your Mother’s Beach Babe Soft Waves Sea Salt Spray

I was apprehensive about trying this product on my kinky curly natural hair but I took one for the team.  I was pleasantly surprised by the lovely tropical scent but disappointed with the results for my hair type. This product left a salt coated feeling on my hair; similar to what I experienced after a day at the bench. I can see how this texture could be pleasing to someone with a looser curl pattern but it unfortunately left my hair feeling dry. 

Big Plus: This product was not tested on animals :-)

essential oil hand santitizer

PURELL Advanced Hand Sanitizer Naturals

I really enjoyed this product simply because of the size and the pump dispenser feature. This product is perfect for those "on the go" situations where soap and warm water are not readily available. Unlike most hand sanitizers, this product leaves you skin feeling conditioned and smelling like an orange peel (with a hint of alcohol; of course). 

vera wang embrace review

Vera Wang Embrace Perfume

I don't wear perfume as much as I used to but it was a nice to try these samples. I really enjoyed the Marigold and Gardenia scent, its very soft and settle.

I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes. Please use the link below if your insterested in receiving your own box:

Maybelline Colossal Big Shot Mascara/ Maybelline Master Precise Curvy Eyeliner

Colossal Big Shot mascara

I'm usually not a sucker for packaging, but this one clearly caught my attention. This product doesn't have as many claims as many other mascaras, instead it seems to only focus on creating dramatic, voluminous lashes. I noticed more volume after just one application and continued the process by adding another layer; without allowing the first layer to dry. I noticed an increase in volume but a decrease in separation which may improve as the formula drys out over time. The Colossal Big Shot mascara is worth the price point, but hasn't quite made it to my "holy grail" products. Check out the before and after photos below:

Now, this product left me very conflicted and I'll explain why. I was surprised, upon opening the tube, to notice that this was actually a felt tip marker applicator instead of a dip applicator. As many of us do, I swatched the product on the back of my hand and was again surprised that this thick applicator was actually able to deliver on its precise claims. I was able to achieve a cat eye without the eyeliner overtaking my hooded lids. The only downside, which is a big one,  is that the application disappears and melts off quicker than other eyeliners that I've tried. I will definitely purchased this product again, once the formula is improved.
