Not Your Mother's Smooth Moves Frizz Control Hair Cream

Another amazing product I received for free from my Influenster Beauty Bloggers VoxBox is Not Your Mother's Smooth Moves Frizz Control Hair Cream. It's amazing! Smooth Moves Cream smells like coconut and it keeps my hair smooth and frizz free all day. The consistency is great; it's not runny like some product I've used and it works so well. They also sent out a curl cream so you curly haired ladies can try that too! Check out Not Your Mother's website for more on all of their amazing products and keep watching for more wonderful reviews coming up!

Bath & Body Works Fall Mini Candle in Mahogany Teakwood

In my Beauty Bloggers VoxBox from Influenster they included the Bath & Body Works Fall Mini Candle for free so I could try and review it. Well, here's that review!

The first thing I noticed was the scent. Honestly it smelled like cologne but that's not a bad thing. I loved it so much as soon as I opened the box. Upon lighting it, the scent soon filled the room and it was the perfect strength. I'm impressed that such a small candle could fill a whole room with such a wonderful fragrance. The candle lasts a long time too, so don't be fooled by its small size. The mini candles are only $3.50 and can be purchased online at their website or in store so pick one up today. You won't regret it!

Kiss Ever PRO Lash Starter Kit is the best lash kit out there!

I received Kiss Ever PRO Lash Starter Kit in my Influenster Beauty Bloggers VoxBox and I'm in love! Influenster is a website that sends its members complimentary products when they qualify, all for reviewing and spreading the word. So here's my review of Kiss lashes!

First, they are super easy to apply. Just use the little tweezers they include and it couldn't be easier, even with a slight tremor.

Second, the glue hold amazingly well! I was able to sleep in these lashes without them coming off!

Third, the results... they are stunning. The fullness is dramatic and the color (black) is amazing. They are so long, even my own naturally long lashes can't compete!

I'd really recommend giving these a try. Even if you're intimidated by fake lashes, they are so easy to use and once they are on, you'll look great and forget you have them on! Check out the Kiss website for more information and for a $1.00 coupon!

Goody Simple Styles Spin Pins make excellent buns!

 As a member of Influenster, I received a complimentary Beauty Bloggers VoxBox with tons of amazing products to test. This review is of Goody Simple Styles Spin Pins (check out Goody's website here.

As a former ballerina, I'm pretty proud of my bun skills, so it's very hard to really impress me with products that are intended to help. Goody has really done the job however.

They are very easy to use, just twist hair into a bun, then spin each pin into the bun from top and bottom to hold it in place. It took me two tries to really get the hang of it, but once I did, it's become the easiest way to make a bun. The packaging has directions for two other cute styles as well. Overall, I couldn't be happier and as a dancer, it's awesome to have a product that gives me a great bun, that fastens securely, and takes only a couple seconds to use. I'd recommend these to anybody who has hair long enough for a bun and wants a quick and simple way to accomplish a beautiful hairstyle. Thanks to Goody and Influenster for the wonderful product.

NYC New York Color IndividualEyes Custom Compact is a great little compact!

As a member of Influenster, I received their Beauty Bloggers VoxBox earlier this month. One of the amazing products in the box was NYC New York Color IndividualEyes Custom Compact. I received the shade Dark Shadows which would be great for any eye color. I took it from a daytime look to a beautiful sultry smokey eye with no effort at all. This awesome compact has four shades from white to black, a primer, and an illuminator! What I think I like most is the illuminator since it does wonders for the whole look. I swiped a little on my browbone to make my eyes really pop. It has an easy to follow tutorial on the back for women who aren't sure how to best use it, but it's worth playing around and finding the look that works for you! I'm definitely planning on picking up more shades, especially the one for brown eyes called Central Park, since it would actually look stunning with my green eyes. Check out NYC's website and let me know what shade you'd be most excited to try!

RESCUE Remedy Natural Stress Relief Gum!

One of the awesome items in my Influenster Bride-to-Be VoxBox was RESCUE Remedy Natural Stress Relief Gum and I've really enjoyed it. I was more than a little skeptical about how well it would actually work but I'm very impressed. It's got a mildly citrus flavor. My only complaint is that the taste doesn't last long enough but it's delicious. 

As far as the stress relief goes, it works. I've always enjoyed chewing gum and it's neat having gum that specifically helps with stress, which, let's face it, future brides have so much of. All I have to do to feel calmer is chew one piece and I almost immediately start feeling better. It's helped me deal with being chased by a dog, wedding planning, and dealing with the family and fiance. 

Find out more at RESCUE Remedy's website. You can find this safe and all-natural gum (and other forms such as spray, drops, and pastilles) Whole Foods, GNC, and wherever else you find your natural health products.

Have sweet dreams with Dream Water!

In my Bride-to-Be VoxBox from Influenster I received a little bottle called Dream Water. I wasn't sure if it would even work as I tend to be skeptical of things that are natural sleep aids, since I've tried so many. I take medication to help me sleep at night but I talked to my doctor about trying it and we agreed it wouldn't hurt to try.

Dream Water is all natural and zero calorie! You just drink the little bottle and fall asleep after around a half hour. Sound too good to be true? I wondered but I was excited to test it out and see if it would work.

The Dream Water itself tastes good. The flavor I got is called Snoozeberry (that's blueberry pomegranate) I wasn't so sure I'd like it because I usually hate artificial blueberry flavor even when combined with yummy pomegranate, but this didn't have that flavor I can't stand. It was delicious! It's slightly sweet but not in a sugary way.

The bottle says to drink it about thirty minutes before you want to sleep and I'd agree that's accurate. I drank it, shut off my computer, and grabbed my Kindle. Before I knew it, I was turning off the Kindle and settling in for what would be a great night's sleep!

In the morning I woke up feeling refreshed. No groggy feeling, no medicated feeling, I just felt like I had the best night's sleep ever. I would recommend anybody try this. If you currently take meds to help you sleep, talk to your doctor about giving Dream Water a shot. I'm already budgeting to buy more because it's seriously awesome. I love that I may not be dependent on medication to help me sleep anymore!
