The #SpringFlingVoxBox was all about beauty and comfort.
Rimmell London Scandaleyes Retro Glam Mascara: Thick, full, wide-eyed glamour! Mascara is my favorite beauty product ever, and it was fun to experiment with #RetroGlam looks, watch the videos at RimmelModcasts.com, and show off my bold eyes. The shape of the brush managed to magically plump up my lashes for extra volume. No clumps; just all-around awesomeness. It made me feel like a 60’s movie star!
Kiss Everlasting French Nails: I loved my no-chip #everlastingfrench manicure! I had never tried a French manicure at home and thought it would be a hassle…nope! It was easy to figure out, and the set had Flex-Fit Technology to ensure ultra-comfort and a perfect fit. The box included:
28 French Nails (14 Sizes)
Pink Gel Glue (2g)
Softlips® Pomegranate Blueberry Cube: Berry fun! A tasty, innovative lip balm that kept my lips smooth and hydrated. It also comes in Fresh Mint and Vanilla Bean flavors.
NIVEA Skin Firming Hydration Lotion: Who doesn’t want firmer, more toned skin? This is high-quality lotion. But you don’t just have to take my word for it; get your free sample of #NIVEASkinFirming here!
Playtex® Sport® Fresh Balance™: Do we love tampons? No. Do we need them? Often. Can they help us overcome challenges? That would be ideal! These are meant to help you #PlayOn so there are no restrictions on what you can do during that time of the month. I am very active, so these suit me perfectly.
Peach Pie Car Freshener from the Labor Day Movie: A delectable peach pie evokes the sweetness of this movie, starring Kate Winslet and Jason Reitman. You can check out my #LaborDayMovie Pinterest board on “What Love Means to Me”: http://www.pinterest.com/robinosully/what-love-means-to-me/

Disclosure: I received a coupon for a free box from Vocalpoint (thank you!). http://www.vocalpoint.com/
Disclosure: I received a complimentary Schwarzkopf Professional OSiS+ product for testing and review purposes from Influenster.
Stuck in a styling rut? OSiS inspires you to “Kill routine” when it comes to your hair. During the styling process or after you blow-dry, the right products allow you to personalize your look.
I have been experimenting with the Schwarzkopf Professional OSiS+ Gelastic Ultra Strong Flex Gel. It offers lasting definition for short or long hair (mine is long and wavy).
You can apply a small amount of Gelastic onto damp hair before styling or work it into dry hair for extra definition.
Products in the Schwarzkopf Professional OSiS+ line include:

Here are a couple of ideas to help you “Kill routine” when it comes to your hair:
Use round or curved brushes in blow-dry styling to add soft curves.
Use bristled brushes for finishing and smoothing a style.
To get beach waves, spritz in texturizing spray or hairspray after your hair is dry to make the look last.

It might be magic!
I was given the opportunity to try L’Oréal Paris Magic Skin Beautifier BB Cream through the SheSpeaks blogger program.
This multi-tasking skin beautifier delivers 4 helpful actions: it hydrates, corrects, evens and perfects–all for $10.95!
I don’t like to use a lot of skin products, so the fact that this one could take care of so much all in one little tube was quite appealing.
After one week of daily use, I can say that is really does instantly transform to your appropriate shade for a flawless, bare skin finish.
Over time, I may even see more beautiful skin (here’s hoping!).
The all-in-one skin BB cream has “Beautifying Beads,” which are encapsulated pigments infused in an ultra-light lotion with antioxidants Vitamins C&E.

The new, easy-to-use Beautiful Skin line from Boots USA is a two-step range of everyday skincare cleansers and moisturizers, tailored to your specific skin type.
Step 1 is to cleanse, and I tried the Cleansing Lotion.
Beautiful Skin cleansers quickly and gently remove all traces of dirt and impurities, leaving you with clean, healthy skin. I found that there is no need for a separate toner.
Step 2 is to moisturize, and I tried the Night Cream.
All the Boots day creams deliver SPF 15 and Broad Spectrum UV Protection, while the night creams work to promote optimum hydration while you sleep.
I definitely saw that my skin was hydrated and refreshed after using the night cream.
Beautiful Skin products are color-coded for your skin type: Normal/Oily (Pink), Normal/Dry (Green), and Dry/Very Dry (Lilac).

I learned about Boots because some Influensters received these products complimentary for the Beauty VoxBox (I did not).
I purchased the products on my own, and all opinions here are mine.
