I got a #VoxBox recently. If you don’t know what that is, it’s from Influenster and they send you free stuff to try with no expectation of anything back (win). Usually the boxes have a bunch of random stuff (last time tea was in my box) and it’s stuff I wouldn’t normally buy–like pinkish/red lipstick. This time my box was awesome.
This NYC lip color (it’s super affordable and I like their nail polishes when I’m buying something for Ava) is actually pretty awesome. It doesn’t leave your lips feeling like they’re covered in goop and they don’t feel like the Sahara which would require lip balm on top.
So I decided to go bold because it’s a pretty stark difference from the neutrals I usually wear. Ava was questioning it because she’s used to me looking bare. But it stays on. Taylor Swift does red and I think this is gonna be my signature. I don’t like half asleep. HOORAY!
I also got this Pure Ice nail polish. I’ll admit, I’m a nail polish snob. I only like OPI because I can paint my nails and not have to worry about bubbles. But this stuff, wow. So impressed it looks like I actually got a manicure. HOORAY! Savings of $60-70 when you add in the pedi I didn’t pay for. Awesome.
Oh, and my bangs came back. I’m a bang cutter so don’t judge if they’re not exactly straight. Good enough and it was free. I didn’t need a haircut because I’m trying to grow it out. It works.
Then there’s the coconut oil. I got all the comments when I posted about it. I bought this yesterday at the grocery store because I need something to start wearing down my foot scar. I hate it. Everyone swears by this stuff so I’m jumping on the band wagon. I’m even tempted to try it on pulling.
What is pulling you ask? You swish the coconut oil in your mouth for 20 minutes and it’s supposed to magically make your teeth whiter and better. I just think doing anything for 20 minutes sounds incredibly painful, but it’s worth a shot.
Everyone said they use this as a moisturizer, face wash, hair conditioner, cooking oil. Everything. Basically it’s magic. I’ll let you know how it goes. I plan to carry that stuff everywhere and try to apply it to my scar as much as I can remember, which means no guarantees that I’ll actually use it. Maybe I need a reminder on my phone.
So yeah, that’s me right now.
I got this stuff for free but I wasn’t asked to review any of it. I just like to share my thoughts because that’s what I do. Especially when I like something. And I didn’t like the Vaseline spray lotion because it sucks and it’s not moisturizing at all.
