Biore Baking Soda Voxbox

Hey guys,

Today I have something different for you.

This month I received the Biore Baking Soda voxbox from Influenster.
This is only my second Influenster box so it was super exciting.

This box included two products - The Baking Soda Pore Cleanser, and the Baking Soda Cleansing Scrub

Basically the idea behind this is that baking soda is a good gentle exfoliator.

So lets start out with my thoughts on the Baking Soda Pore Cleanser

When you pump this out you do notice it has a bit of a gentle-gritty texture (if that makes sense) then you add some water and lather it and apply it to your face.  It was easy to apply, but I found it to have a real soapy feel to it (I'm a die hard Rodan + Fields fan so I know the soapy lather of most cleaners just dries out your skin so I really disliked the soapy feel). And I did notice throughout the day it seemed to have dried out my skin. I think I would have preferred it if it had come with a toner, and a moisturizer with it to combat the dryness - maybe thats just me. I'm not going to continue using this one, but I've found it a home with someone who will love it.

Next up is the Baking Soda Cleansing Scrub
This is a powder that you add water to and it "activates" and then you use it as a scrub, but the baking soda dissolves as you scrub so you don't over exfoliate. I found this one a bit hard to apply since when you add the water it just gets a bit runny. I think this will just take some trial and error.
However I did quite like the way this made my skin feel, clean and soft.
It did make my skin feel a bit tight but not uncomfortably so.
I'm going to continue to use this one.

I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes.

Supernatural Lacquer - The Four Horsemen Collection

Hey guys,

Soooo yeah it's been a while. I'm still around not dead. Just a little bit under motivated to post.
That being said today I have a whole magnetic collection from Supernatural Lacquer to show you guys.

This collection was inspired by the Four Horsemen of the apocalypse. These were released last Halloween.
Application on these was really nice. I did find I had to hunt for a good magnet, the ones provided with other magnetic polishes I own didn't seem to want to do much. So it was a old Montreal Canadiens jersey magnet I pulled off the fridge.
