Ugh... then of course as I sit here uploading pics from my phone and editing them and starting to type this out my son keeps waking up with nightmares. So now I have to push it off again.
Today (Wednesday now) was a long day...... Didn't get much sleep last night cuz of Zeke and his nightmares. I put him in my bed so he wouldn't wake up his brother which resulted in me not getting much sleep either. I was gonna let him stay home from school since he didnt sleep well but he yelled at me and told me he wanted to go. lol He loves school!
Anyways, here finally is my post! Yay! I am going to show you a mani I did for Christmas and review a polish as normal, but I am also sharing my Violet Vox Box in this post! Here is a pic of everything I received!
Ok first I am going to show you the polish I got in the box. Its from the Sally Hansen Triple Shine collection. First one I have, but after using it, I went and got another one. I love this stuff! The one they sent me is Statemint. Its a lime green color. The shine on this stuff is amazing, you don't need a top coat, but I put some on it to compare for one pic. It has a cap on it like Butter London where you take off the cover to reveal the brush handle. The brush on it is a wide brush like the brushes in the Insta-Dri line from Sally Hanson. I really like the wide brushes. Goes on so smooth and is a 1 coat polish, but I did two. I decided to do a Christmas mani over it too when I was finished taking pics of it.
The two pics above are with a top coat. Look at that shine!
This is with Seche Vite over top. So shiny!
The crappy Christmas mani I did over top of it. lol
Next I wanna show you is the Not Your Mothers Clean Freak Refreshing Dry Shampoo.
This stuff is amazing! I tried a Treseme dry shampoo before and I didn't like it because it was a spritz type and it left a weird feeling in my hair. Clean Freak works really well, its a powdery spray and it feels weird on your hair at first, but after you brush it through your hair the feeling goes away. Really helps with oily hair. My hair gets so oily fast, so I love that I have this now. Especially when I wake up in the mornings to run my son to school. I just spray it in and go!
My hair needs to be dyed so please ignore that haha but here is a pic of it after I sprayed it in my hair. This was a day that I had really dirty hair, and it was a huge improvement!
Next I am gonna show you the Goody Athletique Reversible Quick Dry Ouchless Headwrap.
I really liked this because it stayed in my hair. Most of them slide off my head because I have a weird shaped head. Its soft, and I like that its reversible too! My son wanted to try it out too and he loved it!
Next thing I want to show you is probably my favorite thing in the whole box, minus the nail polish. This is a Glacial Clay Spa face mask from Montagne Jeunesse.
Its a cloth mask that is covered in whichever type of mask you buy. So this one is the Glacial Clay mask. Here is the description from their website. "Give your skin the ride of its life and feel the natural rush of cooling Glacial Clay cleanse your pores to the core. Anti-oxidant rich Red Grape and Arctic Cloudberry juices from the glacial heights of Scandinavia work their magic to help maintain skins natural barrier.""
This stuff feels AMAAAAAZING! Even if it didn't do anything to my skin, I just loved the way it felt on my face while I waited. lol But it did make my skin feel so good after and shrunk my pores. I looked super creepy wearing the mask though. I even posted a few funny videos on Instagram when wearing it. You just pull it out of the package and apply it to your face which is pretty easy since it has eye, nose, and mouth cutouts. Then you wear it for 10-15 minutes. I think I wore mine for 20 cuz I didn't want to take it off. haha Then after you take it off, you massage it into your face and rinse.
Here is a creepy pic of me wearing it. lol You can also go HERE to watch the video if you want. Any another one HERE. That second video was actually meant to be an informative video for it, but I messed up the audio, then recorded my reaction as I first seen myself wearing it and it freaked me out! haha I looked like a serial killer! haha
I went out and bought another one to try, I got the Dead Sea Mud Spa mask and I am super excited to try it!
Lastly I am going to share with you guys the SoyJoy Dark Chocolate Cherry snack bar.
This was probably my least favorite thing in the box. I liked that it was gluten free and had real fruit and all that, and it didn't taste too bad, but it left a weird after taste. I am also not that fond of real cherries. I like cherry flavored candies, but not actual cherries. lol I know I'm weird. Anyway, I took two bites to taste it, and since I didn't care that much for it I saved it and gave it to my 4 year old. He LOVED it. He ate it so fast and asked for another one! So I love that I found something healthy for him to snack on!
A few days after getting my Violet Vox Box I also received the Braun Box which was just a Braun Forehead Thermometer. Its a nice design, soft tip that slides across the forehead easily. Comes with a cap to cover the tip when not in use too. It is really easy to use, simple directions too. As far as accuracy goes, I think it might be slightly off. I don't have another thermometer to compare, but it kept giving weird numbers.
You can see the video I posted on Instagram of it in action HERE!
Hope you guys enjoyed my post and have a great week! xo Leah
