Influenster Fall Cosmo Vox Box Opening Nov 2011 Review

Check out my Latest Video on Influenster Fall Cosmo Open Box and product review thoughts 

Vitabath Body Wash

             Vitabath Body Wash "In Bloom" ASIAN ORCHID & COCONUT with Angelica Extract 12 oz  values $9.99

 The Vitabath Body Wash "In Bloom" was a brand  I wasn't familiar with yet i tried out the shower gel and it's one powerful scent infused with vitamins and antioxidants for your skin.  I felt like i was pouring a ton of perfume on me, the smell was toxic in a good way and sometimes over powering yet it fades as you get out the shower. The shower gel is free of chemicals such as sulfates and parabean free, so it has many good properties. As for moisture which is a big thing for me in a shower gel was, As i cleansed the product lathered, a little goes a long way so it is worth the money because you get a ton out of it.  My skin was very dry after words but i naturally have super dry skin in the body regine. So perhaps they will make shower gels that are more hydrating to the skin and that are effective.  Overall not bad Watch the over powerful perfume scent and increase effective moisture.

The Newly Improved Proactive 3 step system

The Proactive system has been out for a long while, I recently got a chance to try out the new formula,  I once used it as a teenager and was overwhelmed with the smell it was too strong and drying for me. Now that i came across adult acne I was highly dependent on results, so far it's been a week, I have the Proactiv is sold as a 30-day, 3-step system for $19.95) so far lighting in some blemishes, I will keep you guys posted on results most likely the first week of December will be my trail conclusion. 
So the system contains:
 (Step 1- The Renewing Cleanser) which feels more like an exfoliator to me, not as cleansing for actual removal but does work deep to unclog pores and tighten them removing dead skin layers. I'm pretty sure that where the toner does the job.  While trying out the cleanser couldn't helpt but to incorporate another cleanser of mine that is more foam & lather first, followed by the proactive cleanser, Toner and Renewing lotion. It works best especially if you wear makeup daily, I make sure to use makeup wipe to clean my face first than proactive cleanse. 

(Step 2- The Revitalizing Toner) The toner is actually my favorite it cleans dirt of your face no matter how well you think you cleaned it. Its very gentle alcohol free so it wont dry out your face. I liked it so much I returned a more expensive Toner that I recently purchased back to the store. 

(Step 3- The Repairing Treatment) Originally I thought the repairing lotion was like an on the spot type of kill a zit in 1 day type of thing, but it's a lotion that slowly  works in progress, and you apply it on targeted areas, still very gentle, wont over dry your face. A pimple may take more than 3 days to go down so yes it slow. It makes me want to use an on the spot treatment but I wont tweak this step unless it's a big emergency and I need to look my facial best. This I beleieve is the secret ingredient in my opinion that actually clears up your skin, mainly because you have it on longer all day & night. 

So far through my journey to clear skin I await results from this proactive system as you can tell i have tweaked into a regime in my skincare routine. I'm currently using it so will see its a work in progress.

The Gillette Venus ProSkin Razor

                   When I got the opportunity to try out The Venus Pro Skin Razor I was so thrilled because my prior razors were to harsh on my legs or skin and very irritating. This 3- blade razor was defiantly designed for a woman needs. Not to mention the soft scent and touch of moisture from the shave gel bar that surrounds the blades, move aside shaving cream. What impressed me most was the moisture bars don't dissolve so quickly, hesitantly was what i was afraid of. I wanted to get my money's worth out of the product, it's so functional, compact with a good grip, and values at $9.95. This reminds me of another razor by a different brand The  Schick Quattro "Intuition" it was big bulky, very wasteful and the razor was not as functional. The Venus Pro Skin  is a total upgrade and comes with a shower hook for connivence. The blades work so well one sweep and the hair is gone along with adequate moisture to protect your legs. I feel even when the moisture bar runs out i can get my bottle of shaving cream out and use the razor till its expiration date or use a replaceable cartridge. I would highly recommend the quality is top notch. Venus website (

Burts Bee's Sensitive Facial Cleanser & Daily Moisturizing cream

The New Burt's Bees Natural Skin Solution for Sensitive Skin
They both targeted with natural ingredients which is great on skin. I would say my skin is sensitive when i use an accumulations of products specifically acne cleansers that can dry skin from usage. I have combination skin to oily and sensitive from acne treatments.  That's where i started trying out The Burt's Bee's Sensitive Facial Cleanser I found it very gentle it did help with minor redness, yet simply to basic for dirt & oil removal. Its like putting cream on your face and using it as a cleanser, the product didn't work together to get a deep clean, the smell was subtle yet at times smelled like medicated bees wax. The cleanser left my face dry even though it suppose to have moisturizing properties in it. 
Accompanied by that came... 
The Burt's Bees Daily Moisturizing cream, the bottle has a pump which is so sanitary I found the moisturizer lighter than a cream, easy when your hanging at home when you want to head out i would need to add SPF to go with. The cream dried out my skin way too quickly it made it feel irritated and tight, i like the fact it was oil free yet no moisture at all. 
To conclude this post review the products didn't work for me, i would use the cleanser to alternate my cleanser routine when needed bu I  didn't find a big use for it since it didn't purpose my skin, but i do love all natural ingredients in products  if they can add more moisture to these products they would be better.

SC Johnson Smart and Easy Spring Cleaning

Welcome Spring!

Its that time a year again " Spring Cleaning" The flowers are blooming, the birds are serenading, and our house still feels like it's stuck with winter blues. Spring cleaning is a tradition that allows us to freshen up our homes and prepare for the warmer seasons.

SAFETY FIRST: If you have to clean why not look cute doing so, One accessorie to prevent your "just done this week manicure" is to wear a pair of cleaning gloves my mom found these at an Asian Market love these, They feature a muffin sleeve that prevent water from entering, very handy.

Some Basic Products to help you get started, there's nothing like the smell of clean to give a soothing calm feeling to your home or environment. I have used all these products before accept for the Toilet Cleaning Gel that's new love blue Toilet water in my bathroom. All these products work great & due as they claim, nothing but positive feedback from me.

Pledge Lemon Clean:  It's versatile in my opinion works best on wood but it's a great furniture spray on wood, granite, stainless steel and leather.
Scrubbling Bubbles: works great in the entire bathroom leaves an after shine. I like how it foams it alerts you that its working dissolving any scum or stains and keeps your bathroom 4 days clean longer. You can spray it walk away, come back and wipe off.
Scrubbling Bubbles Toilet Cleaning Gel: Blue water its liquid form.

Glade Plugins Scented Oil: "Crisp Waters" my absoulute favorite my room smells amazing like spring, will keep repurchasing this, the smell is strong and freash very long lasting. Make me feel awesome, the smell keeps me upbeat.
Glade Candle: "Sparkle of Spring" The candle is scented, smells good it doesn't beat the oil scented plugins that for sure.

Technology: TMobile Windows 7 HTC HD7 Phone

First Impressions:  Upon arrival I was super excited and ready for an upgrade from my Blackberry Curve 8900. I had used a Sprint Instinct before a couple years back ,and was not impressed by the touch screen. Maybe having a Blackberry has kept me sticking to keyboard and has not transitioned me onto touch screens. The Windows 7 phone had some pretty impressive product details especially with Microsoft Office Features and the massive 4.3-inch touch display.
    I tried the phone as soon as I got it, I found it semi difficult or confusing a bit, but that's normal getting use to the touch screen at first. I really liked that the phone came with head phones good quality ones that end the call and volume tabs, although the ear pieces did not fit or stay in my ear. Another great accessory was USB charger wire with the wall port that detaches. 
    I was excited to use the camera for still and moving images features a 5-megapixel camera with HD 720p video capture. I expected the quality to be better the big screen makes it look more fancy but not as clear but reasonable.  
Some key Highlights & Opinions:
The Internet is easy going nice upbeat flow, nearly showcases full page websites, nice zoom in and out. Emails pop up great.
Features: As for app's it needs improvement but definitely awesome to have Microsoft,  Explorer browser & Email are the best in my opinion. Radio didn't work that great for me not good reception, The TV and video quality was a step up from what I've seen in other phones but yet we strive for that clear quality. Camera has a good flash some pics not as vibrant or clear. I got a taste of the 3 G network even though T Mobile has 4 G capabilities but still such a difference.
The touch screen really got on my nerves even with medium size nails, I eventually got the hang of it but in a way miss my keyboard.
Appearance: The phone is nicely designed sleek but heavy due to the O. S
 The icons & font could be better not as attractive  Its not an I phone but nearly there.
Overall: Even the key features will not make me switch, I've tried the phone out for almost a month in a half and for some reason I had Mix feelings from the start and kept trying  and not impressed. I rather go back to my old blackberry. Even though I prefer the windows Internet, I feel this phone needs improvement. I'm surprised I felt this way about this phone I'm usually very open and get sucked in, but not with this phone. I think the phone can be fun with it's entertainment features, okay to have but not a keeper. (5/10 Rating)

Review Olay Professional Pro X Intensive Treatment Mask

Diary Log:
Day 1: The Demonstration
    I posted my video on you tube on the Olay Professional Pro X  Intensive Treatment Mask ,watch it to see my First Impressions of the mask treatment. I applied the mask really early in the morning.  A laid back Saturday so I thought I treat myself. After about thirty minutes and sucking the life out of this mask face, Neck and Hands, I took it off. There was still more to squeeze out and twist. I was surprised to see how much serum these mask actually had. I eventually disposed of it. The leftover in the package was left for my night routine. I kept this serum on for hours, I wanted to try it with no other product on, 12 hours later I noticed pealing around my hair line from the serum which is ok at the end of the day, but I questioned if I can leave the serum after the mask on all day would it peel? but the is with additional product on my face. At night I applied the remaining serum around my face- neck with still more product in the package for later and went to sleep.
Day 2 Trail and Error
    Another day and still the weekend I woke up with a glowy face from the previous night, I found my face absorbed all the product from last night. I know I had a few things to do during the day. In the morning I applied  my mask again with a thirty minute time span. This time I applied my face moisturizer with SPF 30 my Olay age repair lotion that I regularly use daily or especially when I go out side, this was added layer and it felt ok. Originally If you watched my video my first impression of the serum was it felt sticky but normal for most to feel like that. I discovered that blending the serum with your fingers after removal of mask and before moisturizer will create a smoother base in preparation for makeup.  I  concealed my blemishes and used some of my Maybelline Dream Matte Powder to set my makeup. Now I didn't use foundation but I applied my blush , Mascara and lip gloss. I found my face dewy and anything matte wouldn't keep it matte looking because of the serum. So this is it was my face going to peel?  would this makeup stay put will I look extremely oily on my combination skin? Well hours went my I had minimal oil on my t-zone that I blot out with those blotting paper. I though imagine putting foundation on my face it was such a smooth canvas for foundation. Would it feel heavy? I think it depends on how you apply it but not so much no. The serum could last hours on your skin to the point where you feel like should you remove it? "I did" cleansed, reapplied and called it a night.
Day 3 Should I keep going?
    Now my initial thought was price point with this product and usage. I felt like wanting to save it for a special day. Well here I am reviewing it for you guys. Even though I purchased other Olay products and got this one for free as an added bonus it still felt like out of pocket expense. The Intensive mask can retail up to $50.00 for 5 packs. I wanted to save as much product as possible. I kept second guessing if I should use the mask today. Why you may ask? because I have two packages with product still inside, a little goes a long way with serum. However I thought "Maybe I'll use the serum in the package and not the mask" That's what ended up happening, you don't always have time to apply it in the morning  as instructed. I applied the serum from one of the open packages from the previous nights of use. I got home later cleansed my face removed little makeup I had been wearing, and used my mask. I became content with my solution if I didn't have time in the day I would reverse usage of my mask treatment until night and use the serum in the morning.
Day 4 Getting the hang of it:
    Got up used the serum and waited till night to apply my mask.  All I can say is my face has been glowy and relaxed these past few days, I feel good that I'm doing something good for my face.
Day 5  The Final Day:
    Yes, today is the last day of my intensive mask treatment and honestly it's starting to feel like a chore. I never done a 5 day mask before. I definitely think it will be easier the next time around. I applied my serum and mask again at night. So What happens after 5 days?
(1/29/10) Day 9 Final Thoughts:
    It's been a few days now since I finished, your state of results are like a placebo effect.  I found my pores look smaller my face looks more radiant than again I'm still using the remainder amount of serum from the packages I think I might have a 1-2 week supply with every little bit I gunk out. As for any lines on my face I have minor laugh lines I saw them more diminished, a faded appearance but other than that I don't have wrinkles.  I did get 2 new pimples on my cheek and chin area but I think because I left product on longer and cleanse later than usual. I also did sense a bit of a tighter appearance.
what do I think about the mask & product? I found it to be cool and messy when taking out of package the serum gets everywhere, but I took advantage and distribute the product even down to my chest areas and hands. That's why when taking out the mask I would press some extra product to stay in the package. The mask is not as form fitting, the neck area doesn't stay on laying down or standing up. Be careful will the eye it can burn and taste really bitter on your lips. I actually enjoyed the experience of trying it out see how it worked best with my schedule, I treated my skin for the week I get extra serum in the packaging any of the messiness is part of the experience and minute compared to see your face. I would re-purchase and use it perhaps three times a year. I feel you do see a difference in your skin but don't expect drastic results. I recommend you exfoliate your face before starting treatment and moisturize after serum out the package.
-The End
