Let's Talk about Boots.

Not the leather, pleather or suede kind but the clay kind that sucks the oil out of your skin. :)

I received Boots Botanics Ionic Clay Mask, Shine Away in my J'Adore Voxbox from Influenster and it is without a doubt my favorite thing in the box. Yes, even above the chocolate. I'm that serious!
Now, when you open the product hold the bottle so the hole is facing you, and don't squeeze. It is very liquidy ... I was expecting it to be really thick like previous masks I've had. Wrong-o. I got product everywhere! LOL Also, give it a little shake (Lid ON of course) before you use it too.

I used my fingers to apply it, but I think it would be fun to use a brush too. Very spa like. Oh and sidenote, it helps to have Michael Buble on in the background. ;) The mask dries pretty quickly, leaving a lovely shade of grey, green on your face. Then what happen next is what impressed me. I saw that the mask dried, then I looked in the mirror and saw all these pin sized wet spots, on my nose, cheeks and forehead. It was actually pulling all that junk out of my pores!!

I am definitely a big fan of this product now. I love that it is made without parabens. Leaves my skin feeling fantastic and I can see an improvement in my pores/skin tone already after a few uses.
So, if you get a chance or are looking for a new mask, this is definitely one you should try. :)

Tata for now!

J'Adore Voxbox 2014

J'Adore VoxBox Overview and First Impressions!

Hey y'all! I was fortunate enough to be selected for an amazing J'Adore VoxBox....I eagerly awaited (ok, so I cyberstalked the mailman) the beloved box. Sadly, I am super sick and had no energy to do an actual unboxing video for this box, but I'll try to whip up something soon. I wanted to go ahead and give ya'll a peek at what was in this voxbox.

First thing I noticed was a huge bag of Hershey Kisses, Milk Chocolates (the 18.5oz bag!) -- Retail $5.29. These were immediately opened and enjoyed by everyone in my family. The 2 yr old keeps finding my hiding place for the remainder of them... naughty little booger. :) They work wonderfully as potty training incentives. As well as a treat for myself when potty training stresses me out! ;)

The Red Rose Simply Indulgent Teas -- Retail $4.49 20 ct --  were what I noticed next. Three Creme Caramel and one decaf Lemon Chiffon tea bags, each with $1 coupons attached. They also came with a card that had another coupon on it for $2 off Red Rose teas! Being a tea lover, I was very happy to try them. Incredibly tasty and smooth. Literally tasted like dessert!

Next, I picked up Boots Botanics, Ionic Clay Mask Shine Away -- Retail $9.99. I LOVE spa masks, so this made me super happy. I will be doing a dedicated blog post about this fantastic stuff, so I'll save all the good stuff for later. But let me say this, if you have clogged pores or oily skin: This is for you!

The next two things, I am having a hard time trying to figure out how and when I'm going to try them out. The Frizz Ease 3-Day Straight Flat Iron Spray -- Retail $9.99, will be easier for me to use since it's a spray and simple to use. But I haven't been straightening my hair lately... really embracing my curls/waves. BUT I will make an exception if this product really does work for 3 days! :) The less I have to do to my hair, the better! -- UPDATE -- I used it over the weekend and YES. I love how incredibly smooth my hair was! I can't wait to see how it does in 100% humidity since Spring is now upon us. :)

The KISS Looks So Natural Lashes -- Retail $3.99 , seems a little daunting. I've never done anything with fake lashes, so I'm nervous about trying them. It will make for some awesome selfies though. :)

The Last product that was in my box was something to share with my husband. Vaseline Men Spray Lotion --  Retail $7.99, was a very interesting product! I love the idea of a spray on lotion. My husband has used it a handful a times, but my son is super thrilled about using it and smelling "like a man". And yes... it is very manly smelling indeed.

So that's all for now! I am so thankful to have the opportunity to test out all these products for free, so Thanks Influenster!! :) It's always fun to try new things and give my honest opinion. If you are interested in doing the same, become an Influenster too at . :)
