I do, I do, I do love free stuff

I recently joined this website called Influenster and what they do is send you free stuff. 
All they ask for in return is for me to share my thoughts on said products. 

This is the second box I've gotten (the first being this Mary Kay box). This box is the "VowVoxBox". I am NOT getting married, but I qualified for this box because I am IN a wedding this fall. 

Lets take a closer look at what's inside: 
(from top left)
Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in 'Barracuda'
EcoTools Pure Complexion Facial Sponge
Olay Regenerist Tone Perfecting Cream
Pure Silk Shave Cream
Not Pictured: Riley & Grey

I love the color of the Sally Hansen nail polish. Nailpolish is my weakness, and unfortunately this one hasn't stolen my heart. The color is great, but the polish goes on a little awkwardly. It is either very thin or very thick, so a couple of my toes got 3 coats while the rest only had 2. 

The EcoTools Facial Sponge is really neat. It's tough and a little coarse, but once you wet it, it becomes soft and pleasant. You can use it with your regular face wash and it is like an exfoliating sponge. I prefer to use it after a good workout to make sure I get all the sweat and gunk off my face. The packaging says it can be used daily, but I've been told (and have noticed in my skin) that you're not supposed to exfoliate daily. I've noticed my skin freaks out if I exfoliate more than 2x a week.

I've been a lover of Tide-to-go since it came out. Thankfully I haven't had to use it in a while, but I'd rather have one go unused than have a shirt get stained!  

I really like the Olay Regenerist Cream. I'm already a user of Olay products and would be hesitant to purchase this cream if I was in the store. I think it's geared towards older women (my mom said "you should give that to me, you don't need it!") but it doesn't hurt to use it anyways. I love the scent! It's in the floral rose family and is just delightful. I've noticed good things in my skin, too! 

I haven't had a chance to use the shaving cream yet, but as long as it lathers up I'm happy.  

The Riley & Grey is some type of website that is for people planning their weddings (similar to The Knot, I think). Since I have no ring on my finger, I just tossed that one aside. 

Have you ever used any of these products? I'd love to know what you think!

If you are interested in joining Influenster, please let me know and I will send you an invite! 

I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes.
