X Out


Another great product in my VoxBox from Influenster, X Out is a new one-step acne treatment from the makers of Proactive!

X Out gives you 3 application methods to choose from:
  1. Spot Treatment
  2. Face Mask
  3. Scrub

When testing X Out I tried all 3 methods and though all worked great, I think my favorite method was the scrub. Scrubbing was quickest and made my face feel the cleanest. X Out worked great on my skin, it cleared up most blemishes and kept my face oil free. The only problem I found was it dried out my skin a little too much at times, I think a little moisturizer will fix that.

"X Out™ works to lift away the dirt and grime that can clog pores.  The Wash-In Treatment also leaves behind powerful medicine to help keep pores clean.  Learn more and purchase at  X Out is sold as a 30-day supply and comes with a bonus Shine Control product to help you fight oil all day for $19.95."

My VoxBox from Influenster also included NYC New York Color Liquid Lipshine.
"A beauty-editor favorite is Liquid Lipshine ($2.49). It has pure pigments that created a 3-D gloss effect. Vitamin E provides shine and a moisturizing feel. The formula is non-sticky, super shiny & soft. Available in 10 on-trend shades from neutral nudes, to berries & fuchsias. Start shopping for NYC at these stores nearest you: Walmart, Target, Rite Aid, CVS, Family Dollar, Duane Reade, Kmart, HEB, and others.  Visit to check out all shades and fun products from New York Color!"

I have just recently begun to wear make-up and I'm very picky with what I think looks good on me. I'm not normally a fan of the nude colors, but I really enjoyed the NYC gloss. It was quick and easy to apply, smelled good, and doesn't have a gross taste to it like many lip colors do. It's a tad stickier then I'd like, but all in all I think that this is a great product and will be using it again!

imPRESS Press-on Manicure

Recently I received my VoxBox from Influenster in my VoxBox were many neat new beauty products including an imPRESS Press-on Manicure by Broadway Nails.

imPRESS Press-on Manicure sets come in a wide variety of colors and patterns (36 to be exact!), and are quick and easy to apply!  The nails were so cute, I just had to test them out that evening. The instructions were very simply:

  •  Pick out the size nails you needed, I lined them up so that I knew exactly which nail I needed next,  
  • Peel of the plastic and place on the corresponding nail. (leaving Thumbs for last)
  • Apply pressure firmly
  • TADA! You have a beautiful new manicure!

Application took less then 5 minutes, and that was with my 2 year old daughter trying to help. I absolutely loved how quick and simple they were to apply, as a mom you don't always have the time for many of the products out now. imPress Manicure took about the same time as just painting my nails and for $5.99 for colors and $7.99 for patterns, these would be worth it to use in place of messy nail polish! imPress Manicure is available at CVS, Rite Aid, Duane Reade, KMart, Walgreens, Walmart and more.

Conclusion the application process was very easy, though, as stated on the direction you should definitely wait to apply thumbs last. They fit pretty well and stuck ok; however, I do NOT recommend these for a mom doing everyday activities. After running errands, changing diapers and making dinner they became loose and fell off. I would buy these in the future for date night, parties or other special occasions; but, not everyday mom stuff :/
