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.
