Influenster – Garnier Fructis #ColorShield

I recently received a lovely box from Influenster which was full of Garnier #ColorShield hair care products to review.


Included in the box was:

  • Garnier Fructis Color Shield Shampoo for colour treated hair
  • Garnier Fructis Color Shield Conditioner for colour treated hair
  • Garnier Fructis Color Shield Heat Protect & Shine Spray for colour treated hair

The shampoo is light pink in colour has an amazing smell. For some reason I just love using shampoo that smells nice, so this was a win win for me! The conditioner is light and not overly thick which I’ve found with some products I’ve used. It also helped to cure my frizzy hair issues.

I used the Heat Protect & Shine Spray and found it to leave somewhat of a greasy reside on my hair. Apparently this is common (thanks google!) so I obviously didn’t use enough. My hair seems to straighten pretty easily anyways but I did notice that it had more shine to it then it usually does. I also received some compliments the following day about how healthy my hair looked.

I’ve never really used products targeted towards colour treated hair so I have nothing to compare them against, except my regular products. I probably wouldn’t purchase the spray once it runs out just because my hair seems to straighten fine without it.

Overall I would recommend the products to family and friends who were interested in having lovely smelling, shiny hair! I don’t know many that straighten their hair as much as I do though.

Disclaimer: I received these products free of charge from Influenster however I was not paid for my review and all opinions are my own.

Influenster – Broadway Nails imPRESS Press-on Manicure

I was lucky enough to receive another present from Influenster a few weeks ago and I was beyond excited to be chosen for this box. If you know me, then you know I have a love for nail polish so to be able to do a review on imPRESS Press-on manicure by Broadway Nails is really exciting.


imPRESS Press-on Manicure by Broadway Nails is the revolutionary way to achieve a flawless manicure in seconds. All you need to do is find the correct size, peel and press and you are done! It’s that simple. It took me about 3 mins to apply the nails. No lies!

I applied my nails Friday morning. I had to be out the door by 8am for work and I decided to apply then at 7:50am. It took a few short minutes to find the correct size, peel off the protective layer and then press on the nails. I am beyond hooked! Especially with the nails that I received.

Influenster sent me 2 imPRESS Press-on Manicure kits to use. I decided to apply the Disney Villains. The colour is just amazing. It look grey with a hint of purple depending on how you are looking at the nails.

My students were also in love with the way they look. They couldn’t believe that they were press on nails. In the beginning the nails felt slightly odd, but now I am so use to them I don’t even think twice about doing things. They are suppose to last up to a week so I guess only time will tell.

Tomorrow I have to work, so that will be the true test. Here’s hoping a nail doesn’t pop off while I’m working cash.

I received these products complimentary for testing purposed from Influenster.

Review: Nail Wraps From NCLA

I was recently contacted by the lovely Tiffany over at Nail Polish Canada and asked if I would like to review some Nail Wraps by NCLA.

NCLA is a fashion forward, luxury line available in high-end retail outlets and boutiques and retail for $16 each.

I received Leather and Lace and Brillapalooza. Included in the package with the nail wraps was a nail file; which I should add was a nice surprise.

Nail Wrap Package

This was my first time using Nail Wraps and I was surprised at how quick and easy the application process was. I’ve always been a little skeptical with wraps, but I was pleasantly surprised.

I choose to place my nail wrap over top a colour polish because I don’t usually wear bare nails. I was a little skeptical at first if the wrap would stick to the actual polish but so far so good! I’m on day 3 of wearing them and they haven’t lifted or peeled off. I did apply a top coat over the nail wrap’s per the instruction to seal it on and add shine.

I think these nail wraps are a great addition to any manicure. It’s a great way to dress it up or create a new look.

Influenster – L’Oreal Mystery Box Reveal “Garnier Fructis Damage Eraser”

So I posted about receiving an Influenster L’Oreal Canada Mystery VoxBox and well the reveal has happened!

Influenster Mystery Box Reveal

I received FULL sized products of *NEW* Garner Fructis Damage Eraser.

  • Shampoo – Reconstructs and preserves strengths for strong hair that looks rejuvenated
  • Conditioner – Reconstructs and preserves strength for strong hair that looks rejuvenated
  • Split Ends Bandage Serum – Each drop helps to prevent split ends and reconstruct and preserves hair strengths
  • Strength Reconstructing Butter – Rich, indulgent butter is designed to intensely reconstruct hairs strength for strong, rejuvenated and shiny looking hair.

I was not expecting nor have I ever used hair butter so I was pretty surprised and loved being able to try it out.

The first thing I noticed about the products is the smell. Oh wow, do they ever smell good. Like really good. The samples smelt good but I seriously can not stop smelling the butter. It’s to die for. Someone needs to make a candle in this scent.

You must be wondering how the product delivered? Did it repair my damaged hair? Well I only used it for a week so I can’t be 100% sure that it did, but I did notice that my hair was shiner and slightly stronger. I straighten my hair constantly so it was nice to see that it didn’t look as abused as it has in the past.

Now that I have the full size products I will continue to use them. Hopefully I notice a difference. The samples came at a great time because I was just about to start a new bottle of shampoo. I usually mix it up and just get what ever is on sale or what I can get for next to nothing with coupons so I can’t wait to use this product more and not have to use anything from my stock pile for the next few months.

If you would like an invitation to become an Influenster just let me know. (must be Canadian)

I received this product complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes.

Influenster – L’Oreal Canada Mystery VoxBox

Today I received my Influenster L’Oreal Canada Mystery VoxBox. I didn’t think I would be receiving this box because when I did the survey a few days ago it said I wasn’t eligible. So surprise surprise!

L'Oreal Myster Influenster VoxBox

Inside were 3 sample sized L’Oreal hair care products. 1 shampoo, 1 conditioner & 1 Split End Serum.

The awesome thing about this VoxBox is that in 1 week I will be receiving another box which will reveal the mystery brand of the full product line! I can’t wait to start using these products and do a review on them.
