Dr. Scholl's For Her Ball of Foot Cushions, come in pairs. 
Shoes I put them in...the most uncomfortable pair I have. 
Squishies go at the front of the shoe. Or proper term ball of your foot. 
You can't see them to well because the shoe is black, but if you look closely they are in there. 

Review:  I received these cushions for review in my Spring Beauty VoxBox from Influenster. I put them into my most uncomfortable pair of heels and wore them for a half an hour. They helped a lot, however, these shoes are soooo uncomfortable that after 30 minutes I had to take them off. No cushion could make me love these shoes. I should also add I am a tomboy and don't wear heels often. So I took them out of these shoes and put them into my TOMS wedges. My TOMS are pretty comfy as is, but these cushions made them like walking on heaven. So yes, I do love these. They are squishy and feel like jelly, and are sticky on the bottom so they stick to your shoe. They stick pretty well. All in all, I love them.

Sally Hansen Salon Effects in Star Quality
The package's contents. 1 file, 1 cuticle stick, Nail Strips in 2 packages
Star Quality on my nails. 
Star Quality is navy blue stars on a fuschia pink background. 

Review: I thought these were pretty easy to apply. They are real polish unlike other nail strips, you can smell the polish in them. They are more delicate then other strips. They are easy to file off, other brands are more difficult because they aren't polish. I love the designs. This was my first time using these so I made a couple of errors. Like don't ever put one strip over another, that is a big no no. I tore one and thought I could cover it up by putting another strip over. No, that does not work. It just crinkles. I tried to smooth it out to the best of my ability. Thank goodness the design keeps it from showing too much. 

Another problem was, I guess you need to kind of wrap your tips. Because once you file off the end, if you do it too short a very tiny sliver of your nail shows, so you get a tiny amount of white. I notice it. And it bothers me. It will also make it easier to chip later and the strip will push up. So if you can some how "wrap your tip," do it. 

To eliminate waste, if you have short nails like me, double use your strips. If you get my meaning. Cut them in half. I wasted sooooooo much strip. I used a whole package, when I could have gotten two mani's out of this box. 

One negative, I do have about these strips is there isn't a variety in sizes. :( They didn't fit my fingers too well. I had to do a lot of adjusting. Like some were just too big, zoo I had to take the cuticle stick and slice off the sides. Some were just too small, but I add to make do because I didn't have enough to go around, so I had bald spots. :( I still love them though, and will buy them again. 

I do have to add to this review, that this is not the design that I got. I got Zebra Stripes called Wild Child. However, my niece loved them so much, she had to put them on. I went out and bought these so I could review them. She loved them by the way. They fit her perfectly.

My Bath and Body Works Fragrance Mist in Sweet Pea

I received a Sweet Pea Fragrance Mist inside my Spring Beauty VoxBox from Influenster, I was pretty happy. This is my second favorite scent. I have been a loyal Bath and Body Works customer for about 12 years, and I have always purchased their body mists. I love them. My favorite scent used to be Cucumber Melon, but they have since retired it. I was pretty bummed about that. I also have seasonal favorites, like Pumpkin Spice in the fall and Coconut in the Summer. 

The body mists are amazing, they are light and airy and make you smell amazing. There are tons of "flavors" so there is something for everyone. Even the pickiest of us. I am allergic to scents, I get migraines to super strong smells. So, I have to be careful with what I use and what I put on my body. However, with the huge selection BBW has, I can always find something I can tolerate. Cucumber-Melon was one, Sweet Pea, Coconut, Pumpkin, and Vanilla are my top picks. Oh, I forgot, they used to have one called rice and shae butter, that was my all time favorite. The stronger florals are the most annoying to me. I prefer these body mists to perfume. I guess I am just a huge fan of Bath and Body Works. Their lotions are amazing too. 

Bath and Body Works almost always usually has a sale going on so I would wait for one. Like buy 2 get 1 free. I love their sales, I spend way too much money.

Mini Sheer Cover Duo I received from Influenster in my Spring Beauty VoxBox. 
Before Sheer Cover, you can see my red face. I have lots of Acne scars. 
After Sheer Cover. Its pretty uniform...It covers up the scars nicely. I really like it. I used a foundation brush. 

Final thoughts. I like it, trust me the before is a disaster of redness. The cover up really works. I do worry about break outs but I do make sure to use rental face wipes and clean my face really good after using make up. And use all the meds my doctor has given me. Anywho, I really love this product, it works, it is easy to use, there is no smell, it blends in to my skin perfectly. I love it. I received this in my MyGlam bag and was super happy to get it again in my VoxBox. I just loved this stuff. Though I have not used any other sheer Cover products.

Spring Beauty Vox Box. Yay.

Spring Beauty Influenster VoxBox is here! I am so happy to receive these products to review from Influenster.  The box was loaded with tons of beauty goodies from a full sized body spray from Bath and Body Works to a Soy Joy bar. I am excited to try them out. Let's get to what's inside. 
Inside was a full size Bath and Body Works Body Spray (in Sweet Pea,) Sally Hansen Salon Effects, a small sized Sheer Cover Duo Concealer, a small sized sample of Aveeno Daily Moisturizing Body Wash, full sized ChapStick Lip Sheild 365, a pair of Dr. Scholls Ball of Foot cushions, and a Soy Joy bar in Blueberry. 

  1. The Bath and Body Works Fine Fragrance Mist runs about $14.00 and comes in about 20 scents. Mine was sweet pea which is one of my favorite scents. It used to be cucumber-melon but they have discontinued it. I love Bath and Body Works and have been a loyal shopper for about 10-12 years. I am always waiting for one of their awesome sales. They usually have a buy 2 get 1 free...or something. They also have so many scents you are bound to find something that you love. 
  2. SoyJoy bar costs anywhere from $0.99 to $1.29. It is all natural and has real ingredients like fruit and soy. I am not a fan of energy bars. The flavor on these grew on me. It wasn't terrible, but it tasted healthy, if you get my meaning. It was also very dry, I needed water after eating it. It wasn't terrible, but it wasn't the love of my life of health bars. Also it was kind of small. Odwalla has bigger bars. 
  3. Sally Hanson Salon Effects are usually $9.99, though you can get them for about $8.99 at Wal Mart. They are definitely more expensive at places like Rite-Aid, Walgreens and CVS. However, Walgreens does run adds and sometimes they have Sally Hansen products on BOGO. I love sally Hansen, I am a huge fan. I especially love their nail strips. I am going to put these on tomorrow and write up a review on them. 
  4. Sheer Cover Duo Concealer is sold in the one month supply kit containing 6 products and sells for $29.99. I first got this stuff in my January MyGlam bag and I loved it. I was super happy to get more in my Influenster box. This stuff really covers up red spots. I love it. It is exactly in my color. This is one product I really like. 
  5. Dr. Scholls for Her Ball of Foot Cushions are about $6, the card does not say but I looked them up. I  owned these about 6 years ago and I loved them. I needed something that would relieve the stress in my foot from the heels and these worked. They are also pretty squishy and comfortable. I am pretty happy to get another pair. Though, I am sad to say, I don't wear heels much anymore. 
  6. Aveeno Daily Moisturizing Body Wash is anywhere from $6.99 to $8.99 for a full sized bottle. I have never used an Aveeno product before, but let me say, this body wash smells AMAZING!!! I cannot wait to use it. I am sensitive to smells and if something smells bad I need to get away fast, but this...I am in love! I will definitely buy some of this. Oh and it is hypoallergenic perfect for sensitive skin like mine! WIN!
  7. Lastly, ChapStick Lip SHEILD 365 and it is $1.89. It is supposed to protect you from exposure and the sun it has SPF 50+, which is pretty awesome. I haven't used it yet, but I am excited to, I love ChapStick, especially their original Cherry. 
Well thank you for taking a tour of my VoxBox from Influenster. These products were sent to me for review, I am in no way affiliated with any of these companies and all reviews are mine and are unbiased. There will be a couple more blog posts as I review a couple of the products individually. 

As Always Much Love,

P.S. That is not the Sally Hansen design I received. My niece wanted them so much I gave her the Zebra stripes for her birthday. I did purchase the Pink and blue stars.
