Colgate Optic White Review

As you saw in my unboxing post and video for the Influenster Sugar N Spice Box I received three Colgate Optic White Products (toothpaste, toothbrush, and mouthwash). I am writing a review on them because the products have totally changed my smile and the overall health of my mouth.

Results after using products for about a month:

  • Whiter and Brighter Smile
  • Mouth Feels Cleaner
  • Breath is a lot fresher

 I highly recommend trying out these products. I love the fact that all of the above were the result of using one toothpaste and one mouthwash. It makes it so easy for me to keep up with taking care of my teeth!

Colgate often has coupons in the Sunday Newspaper in which you can use to snag all of these items for really cheap, especially if combined with a sale at CVS or Walgreens.

I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes. All opinions are my own. For more information about Colgate Products and to become involved with Influenster please checked out their sites: Colgate Optic White, Influenster

Influenster Sugar N Spice VOXBOX 2013

I received this Sugar N Spice VOXBOX 2013 complimentary from Influenster in exchange for my reviews on the products. I love trying new products so I was very happy to receive the box. Please watch my opening video or look below to see what I received in the box.

Here are all of the goodies inside of my box:

Vaseline Spray & Go Moisturizer Total Moisture: $7.99

Nectresse: $3.99

Dickinson's Original Witch Hazel Oil Controlling Towelettes: $5.99

Colgate Optic White Regimen: Toothpaste, Mouthwash, and Toothbrush all individually priced $2.99

belVita Brekafast Biscuits: $3.69 for box of 5 packets. I received one packet ( 73 cents)

Total Box Value: $27.67

I already ate the belVita Breakfast biscuit and it was delicious. There are a few different flavors to choose from so I encourage everyone to try them out. I have also tried the Nectresse sweetener in my tea and honestly could not tell that it was not sugar. 

I am super excited about the other products in this box. I will post my reviews on the products as I use them, hopefully soon :)!

March 2013 Popsugar Must Have Box

Please watch my unboxing video and then come back and read this post :)

The Popsugar Must Have Box is a subscription box which costs $35 per month, BUT all the products you get are full size and the boxes are always worth more than $100! If you love getting surprises than this box is for you!.

The items in the box:

1.) Heather Belle Signature Tassel Necklace: This is such a cute necklace I am so glad they included this in the box, especially since one of my favorite actresses, Lucy Hale, wears the same necklace.   Value: $75
2.) Laundress Denim Wash. It's a good idea, but I do not have a washing machine in my apartment and another thing to lug does not sound ideal for me at this moment. Value: $19
3.) Corkatoo Corkscrew: This is a great gift item to have on hand, it is so cute and someone will get some use out of it eventually, but it won't be me. $14
4.) Buxom Sculpted Lash Masacara: Always looking for a good mascara so I can not wait to start using this one.  $19
5.) Hollywood Fashion Secrets Sweater Saver: May come in handy at some point, but not exciting to see in a box. $6
6.) The New Black Nail Polish. I love getting new nail polishes! Great addition to the box. $10
7.) Extras: Marshmallow Peeps & Hollywood Fashion Secrets Fashion Tape Assortment Pack Sample. I will put the peeps in an Easter Basket, but the fashion tape will be another thing item sitting in my closet. about $2

This box is worth way more than what you pay for it, but they included way too many clothing care items (3 items!) I wish there was an entertainment item. Total value of the box: $145.00. This box is worth a bit more than last months (by about $8) and also included one extra 'extra' item. Even though I won't use half of the items, I feel that this may just be a fluke. The box is still a great deal and PopSugar is doing a great job making sure to include quality products so I will continue to subscribe.

March 2013 Birchbox

View my Unboxing Video and then come back and read my post :)

Just not my favorite box, the majority of the skincare samples are small and the other items do not interest me.

Inside the box is:

1.) Benefit Cosmetics Stay Don't Stray. This primer does help keep eyeshadow and concealers in place, but the sample size is far too small for me to decide if I would purchase it in the future.  Full size, $26

2.)  Evologie Intensive Blemish Serum. I just started using this yesterday so I can not review such a product after one use, but the sample size is also very small.  Full size, $35

3.) twistband Headband. Even though I mentioned in my video I already received one of these, I actually received the hair tie before and did not know this was a headband when unboxing. Still not very interested.   Full Size, $19

4.) Whish Shave Crave Shaving Cream. This is my favorite item in the box, and although it is not a "good" size sample it is still the most decent one in this months box. This shaving cream leaves a nice smooth shave which is rare to get. The blueberry scent is nice at first but then smells weird after applying it.  Full Size, $20

5.) The beauty extra this month is a madewell for Birchbox Emery Board. Well this is a full size product, but I hate filing my nails so I will not use it.   Full Size, $5

Not my favorite box, small sizes for the products I do like and larger samples for the products I do not like. Not Birchbox's fault, just not my favorite. 

Is this box worth $10: Between the Emery Board and the Headband these products add up to over $10 just with those two items alone. 
Is this box worth my $10: No. Not too happy with the selection of products this time around. 

Disclaimer: These opinions are my own and I was not asked, nor do I get compensation, to review the box or these items.

Schick Hydro Silk Razor Review

Thanks to BzzAgent I was able to try out the Schick Hydro Silk razor! I was so impressed with the results I did not even know a razor could work so good. You guys know me and my shopping habits, I buy what is on sale and free after coupons. I have been using disposable razors for such a long time that I have not tried out any refillable razors recently. If you are looking for a smooth clean shave I recommend the Schick Hydro Silk Razors! I often see coupons for Schick in magazines and coupon inserts so the next time you stumble upon a coupon take advantage of it and try out this product! Also, since I have started using it I have spotted great extra buck deals at CVS for Schick Products!

Have you tried this product, what do you think about it? What are your favorite razors at the moment?
