Sunkissed VoxBox – part 1

Hello there! I hope you all are enjoying this summer night. Recently I received a wonderful package containing a variety of different products from Influenster! This great company sent me these products to try out and review honestly. The package contained SinfulColors SinfulShine, Dr. Scholls For Her High Heel Insoles, Olay Fresh Effects BB Cream, and Goody Hair Ouchless Ribbon Elastics.

In this post, I will review the Goody Hair Ouchless Ribbon Elastics and Olay Fresh Effects BB Cream. So…here goes nothing!

I’ll begin with the Ouchless Ribbon Elastics. First of all, I was impressed by the colors inlcuded within this particular pack. I usually wear neutral hair ties (especially dark-colored ones), so I was happy when I saw that this pack included these colors. However, the fact that there is a pink and a purple hair elastic included is absolutely perfect! They’ll encourage me to branch out a bit and add some color to my ponytails, braids, etc.

Perfect assortment of colors!

Even though these hair elastics look really silky and soft, they are extremely stretchy and strong.

I used one of them to hold a ponytail on a recent canoeing trip I went on and it worked so well! It was a 15-mile trip of relaxing on the water, but there were some intense moments of pure adventure! This hair elastic held my hair so well through it all! (Excuse my purplish-looking hair…just the lighting! Promise (; )

On to the Olay Fresh Effects BB Cream! I feel like there are a million and one BB creams out there nowadays. I have been hearing about the several advantages of using a BB cream, but I simply had never tried using one before. I honestly think I was overwhelmed by the amount of creams like this so I never selected one and went with it. When I received the Olay Fresh Effects BB Cream in this VoxBox, I was excited to give it a whirl because I had not only heard good things about BB creams, but about the quality of Olay. I received this cream in the shade of “Fair to Light”. Even though my skin isn’t very light, the actual color of the cream isn’t an issue because it isn’t very pigmented at all, so the slight color that it does have just simply evens out out my skin tone a bit.  When I use this product, I squeeze a pea to dime size amount on my fingertips and rub it onto my entire face after I apply moisturizer, but before I apply foundation primer.

After about a week of using this product two times a day (once in the morning, once in the evening), I have noticed a difference in my skin. It feels and appears to be MUCH smoother and almost fuller looking. My skin has some acne scars and can get red and blotchy at times, but this cream has definitely reduced the blemishes. There is a somewhat strong scent in this cream, which may bother some users. However, I don’t mind the scent (even if it is a bit strong). Once I have let the cream absorb into my skin, it does leave the skin with a slightly oily finish, but I think it actually looks a bit dewy, rather than an undesirable kind of oily.

I feel like my skin is looking more illuminated!

Overall, I think this is a wonderful product that does make a difference in the texture and appearance of my skin. I highly recommend it and will be purchasing it again!

I have loved trying out these products and can’t wait to review the SinfulColors SinfulShine nail polish and Dr. Scholls For Her High Heel Insoles. So stay tuned for my next Sunkissed VoxBox review post! Thanks again, Influenster!

(I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes.)
