I received my Influenster Sunkissed Voxbox!

I received my Influenster Sunkissed Voxbox!
I received an e-mail to complete a survey to see if I qualified for the box a couple months ago and a few weeks later received an e-mail advising that I was chosen to receive the Sunkissed Voxbox from Influenster!  I was pumped because I haven’t received a Voxbox in a while.  I had seen voxbox unboxings on Instagram and on blogs but those were for other voxboxes not the Sunkissed.

Low and behold the mail man was REALLY nice to me the other day because not only did he deliver my voxbox, but he also delivered a number of items I ordered from Target (sadly, they’re not for me, BUT they are for my niece).

Here’s what I received in my Sunkissed Voxbox:

-          Dr. Scholl’s For Her High Heel Insoles
-          SinfulShine with Gel Tech in My Kryptonite
-          Olay Fresh Effects {BB Cream} Skin Perfecting Tinted Moisturizer with SPF 15 in light/medium
-          Goody Ouchless Ribbon Elastics

Bath & Body Works Semi Annual Haul (#1)

I started off the Bath & Body Works semi annual sale saying I don’t need anything.  Well … because I am a sucker for a sale and e-mailed information on sales always gets me, I ended up making a pit stop at Bath & Body Works and buying a few things.

I was completely out of the plug in wall flowers AND hand soap – so I decided to get a few things because honestly, it’s such a great deal.  I love Bath & Body Works hand soaps. I bought a couple bottles during the last sale and since I’m the only one who uses (my boyfriend doesn’t want to smell like a field of flowers – so he uses regular hand soaps) them they can be rationed.

As mentioned I’m a sucker for a sale … I’m also a sucker for a coupon.  I received a $10 off $40 coupon sent to me via text message from Bath and Body Works, so of course I had to put that to use.  Yeah, on the bottom of our receipts we always get a $10 off $30 coupon, but since those don’t expire and this one sent to me via text did, I decided to use that first.  Anyway!  Here’s all that I purchased:

Hand Soaps:
-          Moonlight Path
-          Raspberry Pink Peony
-          Island Margarita
-          Wild Honeysuckle
-          Island Nectar

Body Wash:
-          Wild Peach Poppies

Body Spray:
-          Daisy Dreamgirl

-          Peach Bellini (double pack)
-          White Barn Summer
-          Honeysuckle
-          Wallflower Plug-in unit

Target $5 Beauty Box

Almost 2-months ago the Target Style Facebook page was offering up a select number (I believe 20,000) of introductory $5 beauty boxes.  Since I’ve been a big fan of the free Target beauty bags that have come out containing samples I decided to hop on the band wagon and order myself a box.  All of us Target Beauty Bag lovers who signed up for a box went into it blindly not knowing what we’d be receiving – all that we knew is the box would be more than $5 (not including the cost of shipping – which the $5 did cover).

After waiting weeks that felt like forever, my box finally arrived!  I was quite excited to see what I received. After the highly anticipated unboxing, this is what I received:

-          L’Oreal Magic Perfecting BB Cream (sample pack)
-          La Roche-Posay Effaclar Duo
-          Fekkai Glossing Cream (deluxe sample size)
-          Sally Hansen Salon Effects Real Nail Polish Strips
-          Gillette Venus & Olay Razor
-          $3 off $15 Beauty Purchase coupon to be used at Target or

I am most excited about the razor and La Roche-Posay sample. I’m a huge fan of the Gillette Venus & Olay razors (they’re one of my all time favorites) and I hope to be able to get a good judge out product out of the La Roche-Posay sample.

Haul: Head Massager

I should note I am a sucker for a scalp massage, ever since I was a kid.  When I was tired but couldn’t sleep, I’d ask my mom to rub my scalp and I’d literally fall asleep 5 minutes in.  It’s so relaxing to me.  Of course I do not get remotely the same result if I try to give myself a scalp massage.  These days my chances of getting a scalp massage are slim and far between.  Once in a blue moon I’ll ask my boyfriend and he’ll graciously massage my scalp and it has that same effect on me – I am utterly relaxed and out like a light in under 5 minutes.

So, at Target I spotted this Head Massager in the $1-3 section up front.  I instantly put it into my basket.  I figured for $3 I couldn’t go wrong and I’ve heard great things about these head/scalp massagers.  I realize they’re priced differently at all different stores – some folks can find them for a $1 at some dollar stores, whereas I’ve seen nicer ones for $5+ which kind of “fold shut” and don’t stay open.

Once back home, I opened the box, tried it out and all I can say is OH MY WORD – HEAVEN!  The head massager is stimulating and relaxing.  The prongs stimulate the scalp and really do send a slight tickle down my spine, but it’s definitely relaxing.  All I want to say is “ahhhhh”.  My boyfriend tried it and was in the same state of elation.  I don’t know how I lived without this little device for so long.  It’s fabulousness!

Have you ever tried a head massager?
