Back with another Impressions post! I hope you enjoy it!
I first heard of Influenster on (Danielle) LePooke’s youtube channel, she’s a beauty guru that also does a lot of un-boxing videos on several kinds of different subscriptions services. She’s really informative, go and give here a visit! Tell her, Mar from HereForThePretty send you! Even though I saw LePooke do several un-boxings on Influenster, I didn’t really take notice of it until much recently. I don’t why! It’s quite fun!! I’m glad I was introduced to it, I’m having a blast!
Today, (technically, not today, considering it takes me time to do most of my posts! Lol.) I just received my very first Influenster Box and I am very pleasantly pleased! All these yummy goodies to use! I feel like a kid on Christmas day. I totally squealed in glee when I saw everything nicely packaged in this gorgeous pink box. They really do have great attention to detail, you got to love that. ^^
These are the items you can receive in the J’adore Influenster Vbox (I received 5 products in total):
Boots Botanics Shine Away Ionic Clay Mask: $9.39
Hershey’s Kisses Milk Chocolates: $5.29
Frizz Ease 3-Day Straight Flat Iron Spray: 9.99
Kiss Looks So Natural Lashes: 3.99
Red Rose Simply Indulgent Teas: 4.49 for carton of 20 tea bags
Vaseline Men Spray Lotion 7.99 for 6.5oz can (I didn’t receive this one, considering I don’t have a boyfriend. ^^;;;)
I don’t really know where to begin, I guess I can explain Influenster a little bit. Influenster is a free subscription service, where you can try several different samples. How is it free you ask? You must provide information to Influenster. You can do this is many ways. Provide reviews to different products or services or connect your social media sites to Influenster, etc. I know this sounds fishy, giving out information like this. but they won’t provide any of your private information to third-parties without your permission, so don’t worry! It’s a great way to try out products that you’ve always wanted to try or heard of but never had the chance to (try).
I haven’t tried everything just yet! It was almost overwhelming seeing all these products once I opened it, because I didn’t even touch my box until a few days ago.
I recently tried the Red Rose Simply Indulgent Tea, in flavor, Creme Caramel and it was okay. I was prompt to try it out after watching Shiley Wu’s video on her J’adore Influenster Vbox on YouTube. She seemed to really enjoy it so I’d thought I’d give it a go. I added vanilla almond milk to make more of a latte. I really did enjoy the flavor it’s just I wanted it to be stronger. I like my tea strong!! This tea was described as being decadent and indulgent without the calories and I think they accomplished that. It was very light though so I kind of wish it was deeper in those flavors of creme and caramel. I’ll try and steep it even longer next time around even though it said to steep for 3-5 minutes. The other flavor I was given to try was, Lemon Chiffon. That’s really exciting because I love the flavor of citruses and chiffon cake is so nice, light, fluffy and not too sweet. It’s a such a delicate flavor that I really think I would find it interesting. At least I hope so! I’m going into this with such a big expectation!
Okay, so who hasn’t tried Hershey’s chocolate?! Of course it’s good lol. I prefer the Hershey’s Kisses because they are the perfect size for a mini pick up during those unfortunate times of fatigue or as a snack or for a little treat or because you want chocolate or because they come in pretty colors of silver, pink and red. You get where I’m going here? LOL. Funny though, I remember Bubz from Bubzbeauty saying (in a vlog) she was eating Hershey’s chocolate and that the aftertaste reminded her of vomit. Now I can’t eat or think about Hershey’s chocolate without thinking about that. I just don’t taste it!!! BTW, who knows if she’d ever see this, but congrats on the tiny peanut that’s coming into this world, in the near future! ❤
I’d use the Frizz Ease Straight Flat Iron Spray if my hair wasn’t already naturally straight. But, if I ever feel like having pin straight hair I’ll definitely give this a go. I’ve tried Frizz Ease products in the past and I did enjoy them.
The Kiss Looks Natural Lashes are sooo pretty yet look natural!! I’m very tempted to use this during my friend’s wedding in June. I hardly ever wear false lashes because I think it’s too much work to do daily. “Ain’t nobody got time for that!!!” So, I usually only use them for special occasions.
The Boots Botanics Shine Away Ionic Clay Mask! ^_^ I was super excited about this product because I love the Aztec Healing Bentonite Clay. While they are different, they are within the same realm. BTW, this uses Natural Oceanic Clay instead. Whatever that means…this is why we have Google! lol. I still remember the days of going to the library, if you needed information on something. I miss those days, to be honest! Anyway, this clay mask claims to pull impurities from your skin, leaving your skin feeling clearer, smoother, softer and shine-free. I used this mask before bed and when I woke up the next day, I was quite surprised of how good my skin looked and felt. It wasn’t anything drastic but my skin looked and felt a tad better. I don’t know about my skin being any clearer but I’ve only this mask once so we’ll see how it treats me after a few weeks. But, I think my skin is definitely smoother, softer and pretty much shine-free. I’ll definitely continue to use this product! Oh, good to note: For some reason, my sample was slightly runny, it wasn’t a thick paste, more like a gooey liquid-solid. Kind of like cornstarch with a little water added to it. It’s a solid if you clump it up but then turns into a liquid if you let it go. An amorphous solid, I think it’s called. It’s a bit messy but I didn’t mind it much.
So, what do you think? Will you give Influenster a try? ^. ~
Until next time,
