Review: Kiss Nail Dress


PROS:  Incredibly easy to apply, looks spectacular, lasts for a long time, great variety of designs

CONS: Slight peeling at the tips after a few days

I'm not a manicure person.  For those of you who don't know, I was born with a three-fingered right hand, which generates a lot of (well-meant) questions at salons, which just isn't something I'm always in the mood for.  So when Influenster sent me the Kiss Nail Dress for free in my Love VoxBox, I was excited to try out a product that could give me salon results without actually going to a salon.  Well, Kiss Nail Dress delivered!

Review: Gilette Venus and Olay Razor


PROS:  Glides effortlessly over skin, can't feel the blades at all, renders shaving cream obsolete, moisturizes skin while shaving, pretty, comes with shower hook, easily to grip, five blades, bends and adjusts to curves

CONS:  Nada!

I haven't been this excited about shaving since the sixth grade.

I was getting sick of my old razor by the same brand, and was preparing to head out and buy a men's razor because I've heard they actually provide a closer shave.  Luckily, Influenster saved me the trouble by sending me this razor for free in their recent Love VoxBox.  I wasn't expecting too much since previous Venus razors I've used haven't really been anything special.  Influenster included this razor in their Love themed VoxBox as a way to get "date-ready in a flash."  Well, being single, that wasn't a concern, but I went for it and used the razor anyway.

Turns out, I did fall in love.  With this freaking incredible razor.

My Love VoxBox is Here!

After waiting anxiously ever since this box was announced on Valentine's day, my Love VoxBox from Influenster has arrived!

Influenster put a few fantastic things in this box that I'm incredibly excited to try out and review!  Here's an overview of what I received in my Love VoxBox:

  • A Venus and Olay Razor From Gilette: I couldn't be happier to get this!  I was actually just about to buy a new razor, so this couldn't have come at a better time.  It looks like this razor has moisturizing bars infused with Olay goodness... I'm looking forward to some very silky-smooth skin!
  • A Gourmet Milk Chocolate Creamy Devotion Bar from Ghirardelli:  Need I say more?  The word "bliss" comes to mind.  There's a reason their slogan is "moments of timeless pleasure."
  • Kiss Nail Dress: I LOVE getting manicure products.  I generally don't like going to salons for manicures because I don't feel like answering a multitude of questions about my three-fingered hand, so any products that make the at-home process a little easier make me a happy girl!  I got a super-sexy, sparkly, pink zebra-striped pattern that I'll be definitely be wearing out for my upcoming birthday!
  • An Herbal Tea Sampler from Stash: As an actor, I know how good tea is for the voice, and am encouraged by my peers and instructors to drink plenty.  However, I have a tendency to be bored by bland flavors.  This sampler, though, is enough to intrigue me!  With flavors like Cinnamon Apple Chamomile, Mango Passionfruit, and Wild Raspberry Hibiscus, I just know I'm going to enjoy this tea!
  • Truvia: I have to admit, their sing-songy commercials get old pretty quick, but as someone on a diet who happens to have a major sweet tooth, this zero-calorie sweetener may just be a life saver! I can't wait to try it in combination with the Stash Tea!
So, that's the Love VoxBox!  Stay tuned for reviews of my favorite products from this batch... I'm going to go get started on that chocolate!  ;)

My Apologies!

Hey, everyone!

I just wanted to apologize for my absence and inactivity over the past few weeks.  It's been a crazy month overall for me with performances, auditions, callbacks (and getting cast, yay!), general schoolwork, and having a social life, but things are finally starting to wind down a little.   Added to this craziness is the fact that I'm currently pretty broke (welcome to the life of a college student), which means that I haven't been buying and trying many new products.  This post is just to let you know that I AM still here, and will be blogging about some new products within the next few days!  My birthday is a week from tomorrow, so some beauty-related goodies should be coming my way, and I'm also due to receive the love themed VoxBox from Influenster any day now.  So no worries, I'll be posting a new review or two within the next few days!

To try to make up for my lack of posts, here's a picture of me with a blue Icee tongue.

Thanks for your patience with me, and thanks for reading Pretty Much Reviews!
