So I posted about receiving an Influenster L’Oreal Canada Mystery VoxBox and well the reveal has happened!
I received FULL sized products of *NEW* Garner Fructis Damage Eraser.
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.
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!
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.
A few days ago I received an email letting me know that I would be receiving the Sally Hansen #CSMTKO VoxBox to review. I was pretty excited about this because I haven’t purchased this brand of Sally Hansen nail polish. I’m not really sure of the retail price per bottle but I received 3 bottles to try out.
Let me start out this review with the packaging, which I was not really impressed with. The nail polish bottle’s were just sitting inside some bubble wrap in a box. Jaded had leaked and froze to the bottle. Thankfully they were not cracked.
I decided to use Jaded first. I’m not really a fan of the colour, nor am I am fan of how many coats I needed to use in order to have the colour look right.
Total drying time was about an hr. I like to wait 10-15 mins between each coat so that it doesn’t smudge, especially if I’m doing multiple coats.
It’s more of a dark purple colour and has a very nice shine to it. I’m planning on leaving this colour on to see how it holds up over a few days wear. 1 of the benefits to the Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure is that it is chip resistant, so only time will tell.
These products were received for testing purposes from Influenster.

Recently I was given the opportunity to try out and review Purex plus Oxi laundry detergent.
I receive my package of Purex plus Oxi and right away I could smell the liquid laundry detergent. I was concerned and immediately ripped open the box. I thought that I would come face to face with a broken bottle resulting in detergent all over the place. Thankfully the Purex laundry detergent bottle was prepackaged and place into a giant baggie so all the liquid laundry detergent that did spill out didn’t leak out of the box. The bottle was also in tact. crisis averted!
I would suggest being very careful about accidentally knocking over any future laundry detergent bottles cuz this incident leads me to believe that leaks will happen. Even though the bottle came sealed!
Once the seal was removed and the Purex Oxi Laundry Detergent bottle was washed (to remove all the extra detergent) I decided that I had to test it out. Right away I noticed the smell. It wasn’t a bad smell, more like a light fresh clean sent. The smell was also noticed once my clothes were washed. Again this was not a bad thing. I kind of like the idea knowing that a laundry detergent keeps my clothes smelling fresh even after the wash. Bonus points!
One of the good things about this liquid detergent is that you can use it as a pretreater to remove any stains. I’ve yet to be able to do this since none of my clothes have any stains on them (I like to think I’m pretty clean and neat), but you can pour a little bit of the liquid detergent onto any stains, rub the fabric together and then wash as you normally would. No need to purchase a different stain pretreater.
Overall I liked this liquid laundry detergent. It worked very well in my HE top loader washing machine and left my clothes smelling great. I wasn’t happy receiving a bottle covered in detergent, but a quick wash fixed that up.
Now let’s get to the contest part.
