Dr. Scholl's For Her Ball of Foot Cushions Review


I received this product to try and review as part of the influenster VoxBox program.  It was sent for free [along with other products] and a mandatory survey is required after testing/trying all the products.

I was super excited to receive this in my VoxBox.  I have purchased these in the past and love them.  They are super comfortable.  I used them in my heels and they made them more cushioned and comfortable.

Sheer Cover Duo Concealer Review


I received this product to try and review as part of the influenster VoxBox program.  It was sent for free [along with other products] and a mandatory survey is required after testing/trying all the products.

I chose the Medium/Tan concealer.  It like how they give two shades.  This makes the concealer good for all year, especially if you are different shades in the summer vs. winter.  You can custom blend the two shades to get the perfect match.  

I like the consistency of the concealer; It is smooth.  The coverage is also buildable.  But I noticed that it doesn't hold up as well as I would like on my super oily skin.  I got a little creasing under my eyes.  I also used it for spot concealing and redness around my nose.  My oily skin did break down the concealer.

influenster Spring Beauty VoxBox May 2012
I qualified for the Spring Beauty VoxBox [May 2012] from influenster.  Check out their site for more info.  I received everything for free.  A mandatory survey is required after you have tested/tried all the products sent.  Also, certain brands will have challenges [usually promoting their products via blogs or video reviews and/or following their social media] where you can win more items.

The items included with this VoxBox [descriptions from http://influesnter.com]:

  • SHEER COVER - DUO CONCEALE  Ideal for hiding blemishes, age spots, redness, scars and other imperfections without heavy, cakey coverage. Duo shades can be blended to perfectly match any skin tone.  I chose Medium/Tan since I received Light/Medium in one of the myGlam bags.   
  • SALLY HANSEN - SALON EFFECTS  Real Nail Polish Strips! This product wears like nail polish because it IS nail polish (with no drying time). Apply and you’re ready to go.  I received #360 Laced Up.
  • DR. SCHOLL’S FOR HER  - BALL OF FOOT PADS  Whether you have on-going foot discomfort, or just a soft spot for the most stylish shoes in the store, you’re going to love the Dr. Scholl’s® For Her line. Take a few steps towards happier feet today!
  • AVEENO - DAILY MOISTURIZING BODY WASH  This body wash cleanses & moisturizes for visibly healthier skin every time you shower. It’s lightly fragranced, soap free, dye-free &  hypoallergenic so it’s gentle enough for sensitive skin.
  • CHAPSTICK - LIP SHIELD 365  This new product offers all season protection & moisturization for year-round exposure to the sun, wind & cold. With SPF 50+, it helps to protect from the sun’s damaging UVA/UVB rays.  I absolutely hated this product.  It did not moisturize my lips at all.  It also left a white cast on my lips.  It's so bad that I'm gonna toss it; I wouldn't even give it to anyone to try.
  • BATH & BODY WORKS - FINE FRAGRANCE MIST  Discover a better, more delicate fragrance experience with the NEW Fragrance Mist Collection. With over 20 Signature fragrances to choose from, it’s love at first mist!  I received the Paris scent.  I didn't really care for the scent; it was too sweet. 
  • SOYJOY - BAR  Enjoy SOYJOY with all-natural real ingredients like real fruit and whole soy! Simply baked in their Southern California bakery into SOYJOY bars for REAL energy-sustaining deliciousness.  I received the strawberry bar.  This was absolutely delish!  I was very skeptical at first because I hated the other bars that I received in previous VoxBoxes.  If you like the outside cake part of a fig newton, you'll like these bars!  So yummy! 
Picture heavy.  Please be patient.

Palladio Herbal Tinted Lip Balm [Product Fail!]


I purchased this tinted lip balm around the same time the Revlon Lip Butters first came out.  I picked up two colors, Berry [the one I tested] and one more...that is sitting in the bottom of a bag in the corner of my makeup room.  I thought maybe this could be a less expensive alternative to the Lip Butters, but I was soooooo wrong.  


First off, I expect a "lip balm" to be moisturizing!  I have chapped lips and this did nothing for me.  It didn't moisturize my lips at all.  After it was applied, you could see the product clinging onto dry skin on my lips.  It actually accentuated the dryness!  =T


The tint was okay.  It wasn't super pigmented, nor was it sheer.  The color payoff was decent for a tinted "lip balm."


Another problem I had was the feel of it.  It didn't feel comfortable on the lips. Not only was it not moisturizing on the lips, but it felt thick...so it should have been moisturizing, right????  WRONG!


This might work on people with better lips, but I can't say for sure.  Purchase at your own risk.


If you tried this product, let me know your [good or bad] opinions!  =]
