Curél Itch Defense Lotion and Body Wash


    As an Influenster, I get that rush of excitement when I receive a presurvey in my email. I do the presurvey and check my email obsessively over the next week until I recieve the "You're In!" email! It's so much fun and such a rush to be picked to try and test so many wonderful products just for my opinion! If you do not know what Influenster is, check them out at and sign up if you love trying new and upcoming products from all the brands you love or will end up loving.

    So, I got to try the new Curél Itch Defense Instant Soothing and Moisturizing Spray. This is specifically designed for dry, itchy skin. In the fall and winter months, I have the driest skin ever so the opportunity to try this lotion fell in perfect timing! It is accepted by the National Eczema Association as well. It instantly relieves dry, itchy skin with a cooling hydration. It has an advanced ceramide therapy and will help improve skin's natural moisture barrier. Not only does it cool and relieve your itchy skin, it is alllergist tested, has no added fragrances, and is recommended by the best dermatologists on the planet. It's seriously good stuff!

    So my first lesson with a spray lotion was, Don't rub it in until you are done spraying it all over. Lol. Greasy hands makes it almost impossible to grip the can and spray elsewhere. After a few times of using this lotion it became a habit to just spray all over then rub in, which is so simple and fast. I have used some Curél products before and personally thought they were on the greasy side. This formula is not greasy at all. After rubbing it in and waiting about 2 minutes, it just felt like soft, smooth skin. It did have a cooling effect which was great just out of a hot shower or on a hot summer day. I personally thought it smelled like lemons, but the citrusy smell was gone after just a few minutes. The most important thing was that it definitely relieved my skin. I was no longer itchy, my skin felt fantastic all day long and I didn't have the "dandruff" skin when rubbing my arms. I will be sticking with this lotion for awhile. It is the first thing in 2 years I have found that works for me.

    Along with the lotion, I also got to try the Curel Itch Defense Body Wash. It was a smaller size product to test but none the less, did not disappoint. It has the same smell as the lotion and was a creamy gel texture. The two together make for the ultimate comfort for any dry skin sufferer. I used both the very first day I recieved them and have not had that great of a nights sleep in 2 years. My favorite part is not feeling like anything was on my skin at all. It was so light and natural feeling. I am truely amazed to finally find something that works!

Crave Naturals Brow & Lash kit

  So we all know a womans eyebrows are a crucial part of doing your make up and makes the whole face right? Well, it's true! We women take great pride in how we look and are always looking for easier, faster ways to look as good as possible! This kit is a MUST in your make up brush collection and your everyday beauty routine. Even if you are not doing your make up just to run to the store, your brows and lashes alone can make a huge difference in your appearance and can give you the effect of make up without actually applying all the make up.

  The duo ended masterpiece has an angled brush on one end to apply your color and fill in your brows for a thicker looking brow. It is also wonderful for shaping. The other end has a spoolie to even out and blend the color.
Directions: brush brows upward. Apply brow powder or gel by using the angled brush. Use the spoolie to brush brows into place and to blend your color so you get an even effect.

  The lash perfection comb is to help remove any clumps or seperate lashes that stick together after applying mascara. It also has a brush for your brows.
Directions: apply a coat of mascara. While lashes are still wet, start at the lash line and comb upwards to remove clumps and seperate the lashes. If you desire, apply a second coat and repeat.

  These brushes have been a great addition to my brush collection and never realized how much of a difference these brushes and combs made until i used them. EVERY woman should own them!
Grab your Crave Naturals Brow & Lash kit today on Amazon HERE! You will love these and never buy another brand. These are so durable they will last a lifetime!

Crave Naturals Precisio Tweezers

    How many sets of tweezers do you buy in a year? I know i use to buy 3, at least! Between becoming unaligned or dull i had to buy a pair of new tweezers every few months. Until i tried Crave Naturals Precisio Tweezers!! They are a professional grade tweezer for an awesome price! They have a slanted tip for comfort, made of stainless steal and are so comfortable to use. No more charlie horses in your hands while plucking pesky eyebrow hairs. The tips are a perfect size for grabbing splinters and debre from the skin. I was truely amazed at how precise they are while plucking hairs. It makes it so much easier to keep a straight line along the eyebrow. They were great for ingrown hairs as you only had to grab it once! No pulling and tugging making it worse before you finally get that little hair that has caused such BIG pain!

    What i love most about these tweezers are (if you refer to the picture above) they come in a fashionable easy to carry tube case. It's still a great purse size and so much easier to find at the same time. What girl doesn't love zebra stripes right? They also come with a smaller clear tube to help keep them sanitized between uses. Then they have a small rubber tip to go over the tips of the tweezers. This helps keep them aligned and more safe for your fingers while trying to get them out for use. I also posted a closer pucture to give you a good view at just how perfect the tip of the tweezers are.

    These are perfect for first aid kits, beauty needs and pesky ingrown hairs. I haven't found anything that these tweezers DON'T work for! I love these tweezers and i think you will too! Pick up your own pair of Crave Naturals Precisio Tweezers on Amazon. You will never have to buy another pair!

The secret weapon to a #BikiniReadyLifestyle

What's the secret to a bikini ready lifestyle you ask? Well, my secret is Bikini Ready Energy Gummies! That's right! These little juicy bites really get my motivation level up and gives me plenty of energy to stay in shape to look great in that 2 piece!

Bikini Ready Energy Gummies help boost metabolism and increases energy to help you get up and get going to look great in thst bathing suit this summer. This dietary supplement not only tastes good but they actually work as well as any other energy product! They are packed with 833% vitamin B-12 and 50 mg (about a half a cup of brewed coffee) of caffiene! So put your coffee down and pick up some gummies!! Not only are you getting a great energy boost but you're getting a great vitamin that also is for energy! 2 in 1 boost! This retails for about $14.99 a bottle for 50 gummies. Mind you, recommended dose is 5 gummies once a day. So this bottle will last 10 days.

These little gummies taste really good! Full of flavor and oh so juicy! They are easy to take since they taste good and the texture is like a gummy bear rather than a gum drop, which is my favorite quality about this product. They gave me an excellent energy boost as well. As well as any other product i've ever used, and i've used ALOT! If you are not used to using energy products, i would start with 3 and see how that goes. We all know caffiene can cause the jitters. 

If you are looking for a better way to get that energy besides coffee and sugary energy drunks, i highly recommend Bikini Ready Energy Gummies! They are FANTASTIC!!!

Playtext Sport Fresh Balance Review

  I was very excited to receive these in my Influenster #Vitavoxbox. I am always looking for something new (that works!) To get me through my back to back workout/ yoga class. No woman ever wants to wear a pad while working out , getting in wierd positions and most of all, wearing tight clothes! These were perfect for me! They have a 360° motion protection. One tampon made it through my entire workout/yoga class! I had no leaks or discomfort either! I really like that they are so easy to use and easy to open for when you are in a hurry. I definitely recommend these tampons for sports and other physical hobbies. They will not disappoint you. So go ahead and #PlayOn !

#GoProFoot triad orthotic and pedi rock review

I recieved the ProFoot Triad Orthotics and pedi rock complimentary of Influenster for testing purposes.
I've had the chance to try both products for 2 weeks. The Triad orthotics are a wonderful find and value for the pain relief and support needed. I've tried other brands and more expensive brands but did not get the relief from them as i did ProFoot.  The orthotic has the perfect arch support and my knees and back have had so much relief since the very first day! I highley recommend these orthotics. For the price they are sure to please.

 I also recieved the ProFoot pedi rock. This has been my favorite item yet! It's SOFT... YES I SAID SOFT! it's squishy and not too hard or rough on your feet. With a little soap and water on this pedi rock , you will have the perfect feet for summer! Bring on the sandals and flip flops! It works wonders and will be one of the best items for your pedicure kit. An absolutley AMAZING product! This is 100% worth a try!
