Unboxing Braun Influenster VoxBox

I was so excited when I got the e-mail saying that I had gotten selected for the Braun Forehead Thermometer Influenster VoxBox (#BraunTherms) Braun Forehead Thermometer to try out and review, and I didn't really know what to expect. But basically, this is the easiest and most user friendly thermometer I've ever encountered. You just swipe it across your forehead and BOOM! There's your temp, clear as day. It shows colors based on your temperature too.  Green = you're okay.  Yellow = meh.  Low grade fever.  Red = fever.

Influenster Braun VoxBox

 I was so excited when I got the e-mail saying that I had gotten selected for the Braun Forehead Thermometer Influenster VoxBox (#BraunTherms) Braun Forhead Thermometer to try out and review, and I didn't really know what to expect. But basically, this is the easiest and most user friendly thermometer I've ever encountered. You just swipe it across your forehead and BOOM! There's your temp, clear as day. It shows colors based on your temperature too.  Green = you’re okay.  Yellow = meh.  Low grade fever.  Red = fever.

We’ve been using an in-ear thermometer which I thought (before I got this) was great for years. The box didn’t say what the value of this was, but I did a little search and found thatWalmart is selling it for $29!  It’s out of stock online, but a few stores near me showed as having it.

Received my #SuaveFamily vox box from Influenster

I’ve been a member of Influenster for some time now.  I’ve received a few Influenster vox boxes and I’ve never been disappointed.  I was chosen to receive the Suave Family Vox Box this time.  It includes a full size Suave product for mom, dad, and kids.  I understand that not everyone that got in on this one is getting the same box so here is what was in mine.

Suave Professionals Keratin Infusion Dry Shampoo-Very good Dry Shampoo! It works well as long as you don't put too much in, and you know what you're doing. The bottle/can I received is 5 oz. and says that it is for "All Hair Types".

Suave Professionals Styling Paste for my Husband

The last product in my VoxBox was the Suave Kids Styling Gel. It is the 7 oz. bottle and it's in the scent "Cool Ocean Blast".

Also, wanted to point out that all 3 products are available at Walmart for the best value!

How To | Combat Dry Itchy Scalp

Many of us have experienced dryness of the scalp on occasion. Some more often than others.  Why is this you ask? Good question!! ;) Our scalp naturally produces oil called sebum.  The oil is meant to help keep our scalp moisturized.  You may notice dryness more so with natural hair than you did with relaxed hair.  The reason for this is because of the bends, curls, & coils of our strands makes it difficult for the sebum to run down the length of our hair strands; therefore, our hair can feel pretty dry.

Other issues that can cause scalp dryness may be contributed to stress, prescription, medications, or even diet (what you are putting into your body).  In these cases, your body is either producing more or less than the normal amount of sebum.

What to consider when it comes to your scalp:

1. Environment.  Your surrounding environment plays a part in how your scalp functions.  Moisture is often drawn from the scalp leaving it feeling dry.  Drinking plenty of water can eliminate or reduce this issue.  It's healthy for you anyway; always keep some on hand!

2. Products. Becoming a product junkie becomes almost inevitable as a new natural.  We try so many products in an attempt to find the "right fit" for our hair and in turn we are [unconsciously] layering different products on our scalp and failing to take the proper measure to wash them out.  As a result, product build up can occur--leaving our scalp feeling itchy and dry because the scalp can't "breathe."

If you are like myself and not really a shampoo girl, you can use Apple Cider Vinegar (mixed with water-equal parts) directly on your scalp to get rid of the build up ;) **avoid using heavy grease, oils, pomades directly on the scalp**

3. pH and Moisturize. Because the tissue on your scalp is skin (it's just an extension of the skin on your face) the pH balance of your scalp can sometimes be thrown off.  We use toner on our faces to help put that pH back in and we need to use something on our scalp to do the same.  The best product in aiding this is Aloe Vera Juice (AVJ).  Aloe Vera juice is acidic and if used correctly can help protect the scalp from dryness.  I've found it best to mix it with my leave in conditioner and applying it in that manner.

The BEST recipe I've found is the one originated by YouTuber Kimmytube.  Here's what her recipe consists of:

* 2 Tbls of your fav leave in conditioner
* 2 Tbls of Aleo vera juice
* 2 Tbls of jojoba oil
* 2 Tbls of castor oil

Give these tips a try and I'm sure you'll notice a difference ;)

Sunkissed Voxbox 2013


 I qualified for the latest VoxBox from Influenster, the Sunkissed VoxBox. Inside my box I received a set of Dr. Scholl's For Her High Heel Insoles, Goody Hair Ouchless Ribbon Elastics, Olay Fresh Effects BB Cream, and SinfulColors SinfulShine.

My other favorite product in the VoxBox is the Olay Fresh Effects BB Cream (fair-to-light). When I see fair-to-light, I was like this will not match my skin tone.

And if you're like me you've probably always wondered what the BB stands for. Well it stands for beauty balms or blemish balms.

BB cream is a versatile skin care/makeup combination that does the job of several other jars and tubes and works as a moisturizer, primer, sunscreen, skin treatment, concelear, and foundation. The Olay Fresh Effects BB Cream refreshes skin instantly, brightens for a radiant glow, evens tone with a splash of sheer color, hydrates for 24 ours, smoothes for softer feeling skin, and protects against UV damage with SPF 15.
It makes my skin feel very soft and smooth. It covers well but I still look very natural, which is important to me. It also has a very nice scent.




Thank you, Influenster Voxbox and Goody Hair for providing this product complimentary for me to test!
