Before I get into my review, I just wanted to explain Influenster a bit in case people have not heard of the program. In exchange for sharing your thoughts about the products (good or bad!), you get to try the latest and greatest products for FREE. Unlike other programs out there, they really are interested in hearing what you have to say!
The box arrived with Kiss Looks So Natural Lashes, HERSHEY KISSES Milk Chocolate, Boots Botanics Shine Away Ionic Clay Mask, John Frieda Frizz Ease 3-Day Straight Flat Iron Spray, and Red Rose Simply Indulgent Teas!
First up, the John Frieda Frizz Ease 3-Day Straight Flat Iron Spray. I have super wavy hair so anything that promises straight hair is at least an interesting experiment! I usually use Aveda's Smooth Infusion Blow-Dry protector to get my hair smoother, but I really like this John Frieda product as well! My hair dried so much quicker and I got a few compliments on how soft my hair was. I usually don't flat-iron my hair, but I will definitely be adding this into my regular blowdry routine.
I shared the Red Rose
#SimplyIndulge teas with my grandmother and mom. We really liked the creme caramel flavor, but the lemon chiffon was also good. Since we drink a lot of tea and already liked Red Rose tea, we will definitely be looking out for more of these unique flavors to try.
The Boots Botanics Shine Away Ionic Clay Mask is a really unique product. Check out my review here!
The Kiss Looks So Natural Lashes are really cool to play around and experiment with. I've never done false eyelashes before, but luckily these don't look over the top for a newbie like me. I didn't need to even cut the lashes, which I was worried about. I have paired these so far with a neutral eye (Urban Decay Suspect, with Urban Decay Darkhorse in the crease, and a brightening pencil in the inner corner), a fun eyeliner (green or purple), and black mascara. My favorite mascaras right now are Lancome Hypnose (high end) and Covergirl Lashblast (drugstore), but any mascara would look great over these lashes. They aren't too clumpy or obvious (at least to me).
Next up was a really generous portion of HERSHEY KISSES Milk Chocolates... Sadly, I am allergic to dairy (and thus milk chocolate) so I shared with my nana who really enjoyed them! One of my favorite recipes are "pretzel kisses"...they are really easy to make:
Pretzel Kisses #loveandkisses
-1 bag of mini pretzels
-1 Family-size bag of HERSHEY KISSES (unwrapped kisses)
-1 bag of M&Ms
1. Preheat oven to 200 degrees.
2. On a sheet of parchment paper, place pretzels. Top each pretzel with a kiss. Bake for only 4 minutes.
3. Take the pieces out of the oven, and put your M&M on top.
Freeze and serve!
