This past month I received the Spring Bloom Vox Box from Influenster. I really love this program. I receive free things (usually awesome stuff) for posting about it and telling my honest opinion. In line with being honest, I’ve taken a bit to review these products because
My new nephew was born on April 26th! I’ve been busy staring at him and saying how perfect he is.
It’s Spring time…it’s warm. Ain’t no body got time to sit inside!
Well, while the baby was sleeping I sat on my moms back porch to do my nails. I took the ugly old polish off with one Cutex Advanced Revival Pad. It was individually packaged and moist when I opened it. I was ready to grab the regular acetone to get all the glitter off my nails but this worked just fine. What I liked about it was the ease of throwing it in your overnight bag. You don’t have to worry about strong nail polish remover ruining all your stuff when it leaks.
My only drawback was they were probably pricey…until I looked them up. They’re about $4 for 10. It makes each about 40 cents. Now, I don’t think you should buy these over regular nail polish remover. (It’s so much cheaper) BUT I do think they are perfect for travel.
Love & Laughter,
I received these free from Influenster but I’ll tell you if I think they suck. 😉
Have you heard of Pinchme? I discovered them a few years back when I was obsessed with getting free things sent to me in the mail. Although I still love free samples, I find that I only sign up for things I know I’ll use. I have a kazillion foil packets at home that are collecting dust.
Pinchme is a website where you can sign up for free samples. There aren’t any catches. They send you a box of samples if you qualify. You don’t have to jump through hoops or pay a cent. No credit cards. No spam. They send you email updates and let you know when you can sign up for a box. You pick up to three or four samples and you receive it for free. All you have to do is re-log in and review the items you received. In the past I’ve gotten perfume samples and other wonderful items. This month, I opened my box and found:
Neutrogena Hand Cream
An itty bitty little hand cream that’s .5 ounces. It smells like lotion and looks like beauty primer. It is kinda clear-ish and disappears once it’s rubbed in. According to Neutrogena, this product is their Norwegian Formula which is supposed to moisturize your hands without leaving a greasy feel. As soon as I used it, I began typing and my fingers stuck to the keys. Although it does seem greasy, it definitely moisturizes. I don’t think I’ll be buying this – or even finishing the sample. Bummer.
Sunny Body Natural Sunscreen
This 1 ounce sample is really cute. We’re running off to Myrtle Beach this month so it’s the perfect thing to try. Sunny Body Natural Sunscreen is a sunscreen that’s made of some organic ingredients! From Goddess Garden Organics, this product offers a broad spectrum SPF of 30 and it’s water resistant for 40 minutes. I was a little thrown off by the branding. I thought it was 100% organic, but it only has SOME ingredients like sunflower oil and aloe vera that are. It smells like sunscreen. Nothing special there. I haven’t tried it yet but will while on vacation at the beach. On the side of the tube it says “sheer mineral lotion, biodegradable, cruelty free, reef safe, non-GMO” I’ve never heard of the brand, Goddess Garden, so we’ll have to wait and see. You can purchase it on Amazon for $13.49 for 3.5 ounces.
Ok, I’m addicted. I love coffee samples. It doesn’t matter if you’ve tried them…you still get them. This little .84 ounce bag is good for four cups of coffee. I like Gevalia ok. I’m not a huge fan. I’d prefer Starbucks but, hey, it’s free. I got a sample of the house blend which is a medium roast. It comes already ground.
Nivea In-Shower Body Lotion
I hate foil packets but I can’t complain because it’s absolutely free. This little sample is of Nivea Body In-Shower Nourishing Body Lotion. I get it. Some people have extra dry skin and need this. I’m not one of them. I usually take a bath to feel less icky and not put on lotion. BUT part of blogging is trying new things and letting you guys know what I think. I’ll give it a shot.
Overall: It’s Free & Fabulous
Pinchme sends free samples at no cost to you. They just ask you take a little survey once you try them. I love it. It’s an easy way to try new products and get free coffee samples. It’s also nice to get a box in the mail. FOR FREE. You can sign up here.
