Olay Fresh Effects [BB Cream!]

Okay so here's the thing. When I first started to get heavy into makeup, I wanted to try out a BB Cream instead of wearing foundation. But the problem was, my acne scars were way too dark and none of the BB Creams seemed to do anything for my skin tone and problems.

Fast forward a year to now. In my Influenster box I received the new Olay Fresh Effects BB Cream in "Light to Medium". Being a sista, I didn't know if the shade would match my skin tone and I was also a bit upset that they only had two different shades with the other being "Fair to Light" (Step it up Olay, Women of Color would love to use this too!) . But I digress.

I swatched the BB Cream onto the back of my hand and it blended pretty well. I've been using this BB Cream for about a month now and I don't have bad things to say about the product itself! It's moisturizing and matches my skin tone. It also reduces the appearance of redness which I usually have because I have dry skin around my nose and I end up peeling it til it turns red. I know that's not good it's a bad habit, I won't judge you for biting your nails LOL! But anyways, I also like that it has SPF 15 in it. I end up having to spend time outside with the youngins with my job and I like knowing that the product I'm using to beautify myself is also protecting my skin!

Olay claims that the Fresh Effects BB Cream:

• Refreshes skin instantly
• Brightens for a radiant glow
• Evens tone with a splash of sheer color
• Hydrates for 24 hours
• Smoothes for softer feeling skin
• Protects against UV damage with SPF 15

I can attest to the fact that it does all of these things!

As you can see I have pimple which was red at first but with the BB Cream it is  nearly invisible!
It runs for about $11 and you can find it at their website Here and/or at Amazon where they have it for $10.

Dr. Scholl's For Her High Heel Insoles!

Once again, I'm here with a review on a product that Influenster selected me to test out! This time, it's the Dr. Scholl's For Her High Heel Insoles!

I've been familiar with the brand and some of the products and have actually used the inserts for heels for the ball of your foot but not the whole shabang!

So Monday, I went to see the Queen B perform here in Houston! So of course at a Beyonce' concert it's a must that you're on your feet, dancing the entire night! I decided to wear a new pair of wedges and thought it would be the PERFECT time to test these insoles out!

They really do the get job done. Now, I don't believe that you can wear heels and not EVER feel it in your feet but this definitely alleviated the pains of being a woman in heels! The next day, I didn't feel as if I had heels on for six hours!

Take a look!

Thanks for reading!!!

Sunkissed Vox Box.

This is the new Sunkissed Vox Box for Summer 2013. This is definitely my favorite VoxBox to date because it has things that I actually use! Some of the pictures are blurry but there will be better pictures when I do the posts for each product!
