#ChooseToSmooth (a review)


I’ve been a part of Influenster for almost 2 years now and I love it. I mean, who doesn’t love reviewing products you love for free? I’ve received all sorts of items to give my opinion on here and on my various social media channels. If you want to sign up feel free to use my referral link here. It’s free!

I was pumped when I was chosen for the #GlamVoxBox this time. Woot Woot.

In this box was a variety of great things but today I’m reviewing the Gillette Venus Embrace Sensitive disposable razors and The Gillette Venus Olay Violet Swirl shaving cream.


Okay. I’m a hard core Gillette user already when it comes to my shaving products. Other brands just don’t work as well in my opinion. I thought this before trying these new Gillette products. These new items are just as great. The razors give a smooth, close shave and don’t give me a rash. They have a touch of Aloe in them so if you’re prone to sensitive skin you’ll like these. I like the pretty blue color of them as well. The shaving cream was awesome too. I like that it’s thick and leaves your legs so soft and smelling good! It’s supposed to leave your legs 5x smoother. I don’t know about all that but it leaves them smooth.

So that’s my short review. I highly recommend these 2 products.

#Tastykakeminiwins review

Basically, the best way to make a very pregnant lady happy is to send her chocolate..or cake….or candy…or donuts. Better yet, send her a party hat and tell her to celebrate something WITH the cake.

That’s why I was so excited when I got the Tastykake Voxbox from Influenster . I wasted no time opening and testing the mini cakes. The flavor I got was “Hershey Cocoa” and it was delicious. This is evident by the fact that the entire box is almost empty. Everyone was a fan of this box..my girls and my husband both loved them!


The theme behind this box and the Tastykakes is #tastykakeminiwins. Find a reason to celebrate! New job? Have a mini cake. Passed a test at school? Have a mini cake!

For me, I celebrated being 35 weeks pregnant! That was my #tastycakeminiwin.

Thank you Influenster for sending me these delicious TastyKakes!

Review: Neutrogena Naturals #wipeforwater

I have admit that I am terrible when it comes to remembering to wash my face. It was always a huge pet peeve of my sisters that I could fall asleep at night with my makeup still on and it seemed to have no effect on my complexion. I could wash my face with any soap or use any lotion..it didn’t matter the brand and my face would never break out.

Ahhh…..the good ol’ days of youth. Now that I am considerably older than my teen years and I have time working against me I try to do better. To be honest though, it’s a pain to wash my face in the sink at night. I get water everywhere because my sink is so small and I hate using rags and so on and so forth. You know, real legit reasons.

This is why I was so excited when Influenster picked me for the Neutrogena Naturals VoxBox!

Since April was Earth month, Neutrogena® Naturals partnered with The Nature Conservancy to save water. I took the #WipeforWater challenge and pledged to clean my face without using water — and only using Neutrogena® Naturals Purifying Makeup Remover Cleansing Wipes — for 3 days! For each pledge, Neutrogena® Naturals contributed $1 to The Nature Conservancy to support water conservation, up to $50,000.

After using the wipes 1, 2 and 3 days I must say that I am in love. These wipes are wonderful. They smell amazing and leave my skin feeling soft and moist. No grimy or greasy feeling. They remove my makeup very well although I had to really work to get all of my mascara off but that’s pretty normal for face wipes.

I really recommend these and I have continued to use these nightly although I do use water every now and again since my 3 day challenge was over. I am trying to be more conscious of the time I leave the water running so as to not waste it.

Thank you Influenster for introducing me to this product.
