You haven't missed any invitations or save the date notices. There are no wedding plans, secret or otherwise. However, #Influenster recently had another vox box program of products to sample that would go well with the pending blushing bride or possible potential maybe perhaps one day bride. Anyway, breathe.....
This was a smaller vox box but it was packed with some pretty great items from #SallyHansen, #Ecotools, #Puresilk, #Tide, and a coupon for a wedding website by #Riley&Grey. So let me give you guys the run down.
The first item to try was of course Sally Hansen's the complete manicure nail polish in Barracuda Blue. What a fun summer name for a pretty light blue polish. Initially I tried it on both my fingers and toes. As I figured, I'm not a color on my fingernails kind of girl. I'm fairly boring in that department sticking with the tried and true french manicure. But oh my little toesies! They loved the blue, especially at the beach. As you can see above.
It was just light enough to brighten up the toes, but not so dark to make people give your feet funny looks. Well more funny looks. Lets face it, feet can be kind of funny looking on their own. But my little toes felt so pretty in pink.... er blushing in blue with this color. It's a matte babyish sky blue. Very pretty and feminine. And definitely an option for the bride who might need that little "something in blue" on her special day. Try doing a french manicure with Barracuda Blue colored tips instead of the normal white. Elegant, colorful, and whimsical all in one.
Pure Silk shaving cream was the next up to try. I've never been one to use shaving cream, instead opting for body soap, shampoo, conditioner, or lotion... Basically just what ever was handy. I have latin (Cuban) blood in my so unfortunately I tend to have to shave my legs rather frequently, especially in the summer. Every other day isn't unheard of for me. The first thing I noticed with the Pure Silk was I got a much closer shave. This was honestly somewhat of a surprise for me because I didn't think it would make that much of a difference. So close in fact that it was 5 days before I had to shave again. A few shaves latter I started with a fresh razor and that familiar dread as they always leave me with little nicks and cuts the first shave or two. Much to my surprise I walked away without even the tiniest cut. I was so surprised by this fact that I spend a full 5 minutes standing in the bathroom in front of the mirror looking at my legs examining them for any tell-tale trickle of blood and just flabbergasted that I couldn't see even one drop. Yay for Pure Silk. It has turned my shaving routine from a torture to just routine.
The Tide To Go pen was the object I was least looking forward to testing as I have an allergy to Tide. After much debate and thought I decided it would be safe to try. It is after all just a small amount on a small spot on a single item of clothing. It couldn't possibly cause too bad of an allergic reaction. Of course, I had just spilled coffee on my favorite white tank top that I sleep in. Tide to the rescue. Coffee and mornings.... no I wasn't coherent enough to take pictures. I wish I had. The pen took the stain out in just seconds. When I washed the shirt, I did so with regular laundry and not whites with beach. When it came out of the dryer it was all pretty white with no coffee spots on it. The Tide To Go pen found a new home in my purse.
Sadly, I did not use the website offer as I have no wedding to plan. I did look around at their site a little and their offers. This seems like it would be a great thing to do, especially if you are a bride planning a large wedding, or have family and/or bridal party members who do not live close to you. It's just another wonderful way to commemorate your beautiful and special day.
Once again, thank you to Influenster, Sally Hansen, Ecotools, Pure Silk, Tide, and Riley & Grey for the items in the Vow Vox Box and allowing me to sample and test them. The VoxBox program is always fun, helpful, and every time I learn both about new products and known products with new product line that I might not have otherwise.
