Influenster Paradise Voxbox Review

I was lucky enough to qualify for the recent Paradise Voxbox from influenster!

It came with a great assortment of things to try. 

Dr Scholls for her High Heel inserts
I have never used dr schools inserts before so I was excited to try these. 

The inserts provide the most cushion in the arch of the foot with added gel in that area. I have a pair of wedges that are soooo uncomfortable so I tried these with them. In my wedges they are the most uncomfortable in the toe area so I didn't know if these would help. After placing these in my shoes and using them I still get discomfort wearing my shoes but I am able to wear them for a longer period of time before they become unbearable lol. So I would say it's a definite improvement! I recommend giving these a try for your uncomfortable heels! :) 

Goody Tangle Fix
So this product is a hair brush that claims to be more gentle on detangling your hair. I have very long thick, course wavy/curly hair. I honestly never use a hair brush which probably sounds bad lol but my hair never looks bad, I just always use wide tooth combs on my hair. It says to use this on dry or wet hair, so I used it right after my shower on wet hair. I felt like the width of the brush bristles were too short to fully reach through my thick hair to detangle it, if that makes sense. I feel like it took me much longer to comb through my hair with this than my wide tooth comb. It's nice for just smoothing out the top of my hair  but that's about it. My 22 month old son on the other hand loves it! I use this on his hair all the time so it's come in handy! This wound be great for little girls  hair! :)

Olay Fresh Effects Shine Shine Go Away Cleanser 
This is a shine minimizing cleanser. It's suppose to minimize shine throughout the day. Now how can you truly know if a face wash prevents shine! I have no idea! BUT I feel like it works! Of course I wear makeup, and shine minimizing face primers and potions so who's to say this cleanser is doing the job and not those! Well I can say I have seen less shine throughout the day since using this, but maybe it's the fact that it's finally cooling off here in California lol, but I think it's working so that's what counts! Cleansing wise it does a great job at removing my makeup and keeping my face clean. It doesn't irritate my skin. It smells great! It's a win for me! :)

Suave Moroccon Argan Styling Oil
This couldn't have come at a better time! Prior to coloring my hair I had super healthy shiny hair. Since coloring, my hair is still soft and manageable but I find it's not as shiny as I'd like so I've been on this hair product kick, buying all sorts of hair serums and balms to try. I was really excited to try a new one! I apply this to wet hair and then style as usual. I definitely see a difference when using this. I get very soft hair and lots of shine! Just what I wanted! The smell is ok. I don't hate it, but it's not my favorite scent. It does exactly what it says though so I like it. Although don't use too much because I can totally see it making your hair look greasy if you apply too much. Check this out if you need a new hair serum! 

Last but not least is the NYC Sparkle Eye Dust
I love this! I had never used these before but it's so pretty! The color I got is #882 Smokey Topaz. It's a gorgeous shimmery taupe/brown shade. It's really gorgeous all over the lid or towards the inner corners. I used UDPP with it and it lasted all day! It is a loose shadow, but the applicator makes it easy to apply. After I apply it, I use a blending brush to blend out any harsh edges. I'm going to pick up a few more colors!! Check these out at your local drugstore for $2.99! 

Overall I'm so happy with all these great products I got to try! It's always fun to try a variety of new products whether it be makeup, skincare, or haircare. I definitely recommend you try these out. You can find all of these at your local drugstore.

Thanks to Influenster for giving me the opportunity and choosing me for the Paradise VoxBox!

Bummer that your experience with Goody's TangleFix wasn't so great. I actually loved it. I found that it did a nice job at detangling my hair, and believe me, the tangles in my hair are super stubborn, LOL!

I love the Suave styling oil! I think it was my favorite item in the box! :)

Then NYC looks so pretty, I have never tried those either.

@Alina I know! My hair is just sooo thick and long it was just not the best for detangling mine! My baby loves it though lol :)

@LVMAKEUP I had never tried them either. I failed to mention that they can be a bit messy but are much better when used with a brush. But for $3 definitely worth it! :)
