Awhile back I signed up for this site, Influenster, where you have the opportunity to participate in different campaigns and try out products for reviews, thereby influencing your community. The more influential you are, the more things you get to try and review. 


SkinFix Hand Repair Cream
I’ve seen this new brand at my local Target and thought the packaging was catchy. I have SO many hand creams because I cannot stand the dry feeling you’re left with after washing your hands. I thought this one was fine, sinks in easily, but definitely wasn’t anything special. It’s a bit expensive for what it is. I just think there”s a lot of better options out there.

John Frieda Frizz Ease Smooth Operator
I haven’t tested out the shampoo, conditioner, or frizz primer mostly because I like saving stuff like this for travel when the small sized packages are key. I’m also trying to limit the amount of chemical laden products I use so I may just keep these in my samples bucket for guests. In my experience, stuff from the John Frieda line has been decent.

Tide Pods
These 4 in 1 pods have such a strong smell. I picked one up out of the bag and now the scent is all over my hands. They claim to have 4 different uses: detergent, stain remover, brightener, freshness.In general, I do like and use pod-based laundry products and currently use the Honest Company pods that have the same 4-in-1 benefits. C has really sensitive skin so we can’t use detergents with dyes or fragrances. I’ll probably donate these to the communal laundry dungeon in our basement that all the tenants use.

Colgate Express White Toothpaste and Optic White Toothbrush
Ok so I totally saw and add for this toothbrush and was super curious. I haven’t used it yet but I’m really curious if it’s all just a gimmick of if it really works. I’m planning to use it soon with the toothpaste so maybe I’ll take some before and after pictures to see if I can really get glowing white teeth. Also, I probably sound like a hypocrite because so many chemicals in this stuff but I’m trying, one step at a time.

There were also two other things included in this box: a coupon for AdoreMe (lingerie subscription) and a Lands’ End coupon. I don’t plan on using either one. The Land’s End one was actually a nice surprise until I realized you had to spend over $100. No thanks.
