Influenster Box Items Reviews : Dr Scholl's High Heel Insoles, Olay Fresh Effects BB Cream, Goody Ouchless Ribbon Elastics, Sinfulshine Nail Polish

Hi Lovelies! Today I want to share with you the influenster box I receive recently!

So I think this my 3rd box (ish?!) from influenster. I am quite happy that they sent me this box, especially since I stopped my birchbox subscription a while back, I feel like I haven't receive any "surprises" lately. & with influenster is completely free with full size products, so really, who can complain? I really appreciate this complimentary box, here are what I receive and my sincere review of each product:

#1 Dr. Scholl's High Heel insoles. 

I actually never used high heel insoles before. But these look super comfy. I think it's a great that I would have this opportunity to try and see if I can prolong to wear some of my less comfortable heels! The texture is gel, super smooth for your skin. If you want to try it, it cost $10.99 a pair.

 If you can see, there is indication of right and left 

& To test the item.... I choose you! Super high heel Jessica Simpson Style! ha.. 

You can actually peel off the back so it can stick on to your shoes and stay in place

The gel is basically to form a better fitting for your feet by having shapes that will cling on to your feet. As you can see here, the left side has a gel form shaped up. 

I did not stick the insole to my shoes because
 I want to test it first before I decide which shoes I want to use it with 

Very invisible! Cannot even see it! 

The feeling is quite comfortable. Although quite noticeable sensation, because the gel has a very cool feeling to it. Perhaps after a longer period of wear, will become less noticeable. 

#2 Olay Fresh Effects BB Cream 

I think this is my second time trying out non-asian brand BB Cream. It was a challenge for me because my first try ended me up with break outs! So I was a bit afraid.

I got the fair to light color.  
The packaging is pretty cute. It's also a pretty large size for it's price. 

Including 6 skin benefits:

Refreshes skin instantly
• Brightens for a radiant glow
• Evens tone with a splash of sheer color
• Hydrates for 24 hours
• Smooths for softer feeling skin
• Protects against UV damage with SPF 15

All the info in the back. May not be super clear.. 
if you are really interested, please remind me to take another picture & I will update it... hehe =P

Here is what the color look like.

I think I got too much product on my hand, I had to remove some of it with a napkin in order to evenly spread out and let my skin absorb the rest of the product. The texture is a bit more watery than I expected. It may be because I used too much product. Since I didn't really have that watery feeling when I applied less product onto my face.

When blended in, it basically looks invisible. So while I think it's not so sticky with clean clear feeling to the skin, the coverage may be a bit of disappointment. I would probably use this more as a sun screen than BB cream. With SPF 15, this is available in two shades, fair and medium. for $12.99

#3 Goody Ouchless Ribbon Elastics 

I really like this elastic because it is really pain free for my hair! it's very smooth and does not tangle your hair. Not when you use tied it, untie it, tie it again, untie again n tie again.. n.............I am sure all of us girls have countless experience with broken hair ties or tangle hair ties with your hair. I normally would not resort to to purchase more expensive hair ties because I think they are tangle my hair just the same. Luckily this Goody elastics is great for my hair, and I am sure for yours too. let me know if you ever try it and like it! A pack of this stuff is 3.99-4.99

Product info :
  • Soft, stretchy material that looks beautiful on the wrist or in the hair!
  • From America’s #1 elastics brand, Goody® Ouchless®
  • Unique knot style hair ties are perfect for personalizing or dressing up your look.
A quick tip if you have lots of hair ( as my friends like to say I do). You may want to be careful and not over stretch the elastic. When it goes out of shape, it may not be as #ouchless as it was. However, in comparison I still feel it's better than the average elastics =) 

#4 Sinfulshine - rebel color. 

To be quite honest, this is not a color I would normally purchase. I think I am at a stage where I am getting more " mature" and yet I don't want to be.... so I am resorting to all sorts of light colorful things instead of these mature colors.. lol. Can't deny that this may be a good color for the office though, looks settle and polished. Since it's not a hyper candy cotton color or a Gothic black!  Anyway, since I have somewhat become a nail polish collector, I feel happy just to have a new nail color.

This collection includes a gel technology which gives it more glossy shine. I guess with all the matte polishes, now glossy is back in style. With 1 coat I was able to achieve full coverage, however, if you look up close, ( not sure if noticeable in picture) you can see that it's not fully solid coverage underneath. Therefore I would recommend to do a second coat after it's dried. The drying time is pretty fast, so it is still a pretty good nail polish! This collection is now available at Walgreen for $2.99

Anyways hope this blog post review helps you a bit. 
& I will talk to you soon in my next blog! xo
