Influenster and Birchbox!

Happy Friday!

So this week I got two spectacular packages in the mail. Influenster and Birchbox, Influenster is a sample box that you take quizzes for and if you are a right fit, they send you products at no cost in exchange for your reviews, and Birchbox is subscription box that is $10 a month and you get beauty samples each month!

This travel razor from Gillette Venus is AWESOME! Its called Snap. It has five blades and the conditioning strip and comes in a traveling case. I was doubtful at first because it is so tiny and I just thought it would be annoying to shave with. Actually it is quite the opposite! This thing is so handy and nifty! I'm able to throw it in my gym bag and take it with me, or I can use it at home, shaving wise its right up there with a standard razor, but this fits on the shelf a bajillion times better. The best part of all of it is the convenience. It snaps into its case that drains water so it goes from used to packed in seconds. The coupons it came with for blade refills was awesome too! 

Have you used a Gillette Venus razor before? 
This was my first one. 

And this months Birchbox contained:

A $25 off orders of $75 or more from Kate Spade.

Pixi Shea Butter Lip Balm- It is awesome! It smells delicious, goes on super smooth and doesn't feel heavy.  It has a nice light shade of pink to it, but not enough to look like a little kid that got into mommy's makeup.

Greenleaf Candle Co. Candle in First Blush- Oh my the smell! Its like spring time, fresh flowers and outside. I'm a candle and smell good junky, so this was opened and lit right away!

Nexxus Color Assure 3 Part System- For color treated hair, its a pre-wash primer, shampoo and conditioner. It is infused with oils to help protect hair color from washing out and fading. I color my hair all the time and products like these keep me going. Although I've never used Nexxus and usually use strictly salon products, after my next color I'm going to put this to the test.

Cotz Natural Skin Facial Sunscreen- Oil free and mineral based sunscreen with an SPF of 40. It goes on smoothly with a sheer appearance so it doesn't mess with makeup application and doesn't leave skin greasy.

Caldrea Body Wash and Lotion- Natural ingredients make these super good for your skin, and helps hydrate and soften skin. Perfect for the summer time when the heat can dry out your skin.

Do you subscribe to monthly boxes?

I have to work all weekend, but we have to make a pit stop for groceries at some point. The hub and I have been watching Bonnie & Clyde each night, if you like history at all, watch this! It's only $13 at Walmart. It is 176 minutes long, but we've been breaking it up into chunks and watching it each night, tonight should be our last installment. I'm excited to watch it but sad its over. I'm also looking for some fun crafts to do, I've been searching pinterest for days and haven't found anything that sparks my interest yet, any suggestions? What are your weekend plans?
