Dr Scholl's For Her High Heel Insoles

Thanks to Influenster, I received a complimentary pair of Dr. Scholl's For Her High Heel Insoles to try out and review!
From my Influenster Card:
"Dr. Scholl's For Her High Heel Insoles are clinically proven to help prevent foot pain caused by wearing high heels 2" or higher. They offer immediate, long-lasting comfort and an ultra-soft gel arch to shift pressure off the ball of your foot. They're proven to improve the way you feel in heels."

I will say, these insoles did help make my heels more comfortable to wear in the heel and toe areas of the shoes and didn't make my feet as tired as normal in those areas. For me however, the arch area did not work at all. I'm assuming it might be how my feet are shaped in the arch area. The arch part of the insole really bothered my feet and caused an uncomfortable feeling in the arch of my feet. I tried moving the insole around in the shoe, but no matter where it was, the arches of my feet still really bothered me and just got, in a way, sore from wearing these insoles in my shoes. If the gel arch part of the insole had been slightly smaller, I would have totally loved these because of how well they helped the heels and toes of my feet when wearing my high heels. For me, other than the arch issue, these are a good product that I would recommend anyone to try and use with their high heeled shoes.

Olay Fresh Effects {BB Cream}

Thanks to Influenster, I received a complimentary bottle of Olay Fresh Effects {BB Cream} Skin Perfecting Tinted Moisturizer with SPF 15 in color fair to light.
From my Influenster Card:
"24-hour hydration and a splash of sheer color. This all-in-one skin perfecter, sunscreen, and tinted moisturizer evens tone and refreshes dullness, for flawless looking skin (available in two shades: fair/light and light/medium)."

I haven't had very much exposure to many BB creams, so I was very excited to give this a try. I was thrilled when I saw they sent me one for fair to light skin since I tend to be a fairly pale person :)

This cream is SO easy to put on and is so light on the skin, it was hard to remember that I was even wearing it. It really evened out my skin tone, which I loved! It has a light scent to it which was nice, it wasn't too overwhelming and didn't last very long either. I like this because it is a sunscreen and moisturizer all in one! My skin tends to be on the dry side, so I really enjoy trying out various creams to see which will help my skin stay moisturized and which don't. Olay Fresh Effects {BB Cream} moisturized my face and helped it stay moisturized all day long. I like that I could use 1 product to get the same effect as multiple products like normal. I like having the natural look a lot, so this really worked for me with that. Looking at my face up close I could tell I was wearing it, but from a distance or if you didn't know I had put it on, you never would have known it was on my face. Love that! Also, a little bit of this goes a long way too, which is nice.

Olay Fresh Effects {BB Cream!} offers six skincare benefits in one step! It refreshes skin instantly, brightens for a radiant glow, evens tone with a splash of sheer color, hydrates for 24 hours, smooth for softer feeling skin, and protects against UV damage with SPF 15!

Want to learn more? Head over to to find out more about this wonderful product.

Want to buy your own Olay Fresh Effects {BB Cream}?
You can find it on Amazon and through Olay Fresh Effects.

SinfulShine with Gel Tech review

I was given a bottle of the new SinfulShine with Gel Tech nail polish to test out and review compliments of Influenster. The color I received was color number 1219 called Alfresco. Here it is on my toes :)

From my Influenster card:
"SinfulShine with Gel Tech technology provides opulent rich color and superb shine. The 32 trend right shades are available for a limited time exclusively at Walgreens."

You can see here all of the colors that are available.

I LOVE this color. It is so pretty. This is some awesome polish too. After initially applying it, I touched it up over a week ago and it still looks great! There are a few little chips out, but nothing like some of my other polishes that would never have lasted this long on my toes. The color is bright and vibrant and fun. It is very easy to apply to your nails and has an awesome shine to it too so you don't even have to use a top coat on it to add extra shine.

The price is pretty too - only $2.99!!!!

July BirchBox

Here it is...
July BirchBox
This month's box theme was Power Play - things dedicated to help you take control of any situation, and to make the most of every minute.

In The Box...

Number 4
Super Comb Prep and Protect
We put our hair through a lot of stress. This is an extra hydrating leave-in conditioning mist. It doesn't just protect hair from heat damage, it also doubles as a color protector and UV shield. The sulfate-free formula sink in quickly and has a pretty floral scent that to white freesia, amber, and musk. Natural conditioners (including black currant, soy yogurt, algae, and yerba mate) combine to restore hydration to dry hair, while the unique UV/color polar shield protects dyed or sun-exposed locks. Soy and vegetable proteins repair damage caused by heat and chemical styling. And don't forget about the defrizzing factor - anti-static technology tames flyaways, making hair more manageable and easy to style.

Buy It:
BirchBox: $32 for 200 ml

La Fresh
Instant Body Soother
Sample Size: 2 wipes
These eco-friendly body wipes soften skin and have a tingly cool scent thanks to an infusion of peppermint oil. Keep a pack tucked in your gym bag for a great post-workout skin refresher for those days when you don't have time to jump in the shower. You can bring them with you on vacation or keep them at home. Each 24 pack has enough sweet-smelling wipes to last you for weeks. Made with a blend of six natural oils (including olive, jojoba, sesame, grapeseed, vitamin E, and peppermint) these wipes refresh while delivering a dose of aromatherapy.

Buy It:
BirchBox: $9.99 for 24 wipes

Party Proof Lipstick
Sample Size: 3.8 g / 0.13 oz
Sample Color: Get Naked
This hydrating, semi-matte lip color lives up to its cheeky moniker. Whether you're heading to a backyard BBQ or a black tie gala, it's guaranteed to stay put through plates of baby back ribs, champagne toasts, and beyond. The concentrated, vitamin-rich formula heals dryness while coating lips in long-lasting color. 
There are two trio options to choose from:
The Neutrals trio features Get Naked (a classic nude), Kitty (a soft baby pink), and Dusk Till Dawn (a deep nude with beige undertones).
The Classics collection has Peony (a hot pink), Red Velvet (a snappy red with hits of pink), and Disco Fever (a flirty coral).

Dr. Jart+
Ceramidin Cream
If you struggle with finicky skin, you've probably dreamed of a silver bullet that could solve all of your complexion problems at once. While that's a bit of a stretch, Dr. Jart's powerhouse cream is as close as any single product can come. Enhanced with a megadose of ceramides - the lipid molecules found lacking in severely dry skin - Dr Jart Ceramidin Cream combats roughness, redness, and irritation and moisturizes for up to 26 hours. Pretty miraculous, huh? This derm-developed formula provides prescription-quality relief for eczema and redness, as well as for garden-variety dry skin. The deceptively light formula replaces lost ceramides, boosting skin's natural ability to retain moisture. In addition, a special blend of skin-repairing ingredients like folic acid prevent cell DNA damage and protect from pollution, UV exposure, and irritation.

Buy It:
BirchBox: $48 for 50 ml

Men's Birchbox

For a combination anniversary and Father's day gift, I got my husband a 3 month gift subscription to BirchBox Man. So I thought I would share the things he got in his box :) His first box came in June.

Included in the box....

Billy Jealousy 
Adrenaline Junkie Energizing Scrub
Sample Size: 1 fl oz / 30 ml
This scrub will add some excitement to your shower routine. Gritty but still gentle enough to use several times a week, this electrifying essential helps skin look and feel smooth. The added peppermint oil provides a cooling tingle that lasts long after you'v dried off. Jojoba esters exfoliate skin and open up clogged pores, while peppermint oil moisturizes and stimulates circulation. Mulberry extract provides antimicrobial properties and helps boost skin's firmness.

Buy It:
BirchBox: $24 for 8 fl oz

Shaving Cream
Sample Size: 0.35 oz / 9.8 g / 10 ml
We suggest this concentrated, creamy soap, which brings to mind classic barber shops with its tingly sensation and old-school packaging. The refreshing and toning formula uses eucalyptus oil to tone and purify skin, plus menthol to deliver a tingly kick. Naturally healing shea butter in the moisturizing and nourishing formula helps hydrate dry skin and soften coarse beards, while sandalwood oil calms red, irritated skin.

Buy It:
BirchBox: $10 for 150 ml

Niche For Men
Male Deodorizing Wipes
Sample Size: 2 wipes
Individually wrapped deodorizing wipes, specifically designed for on-the-go use. The hand towel-sized wipes are infused with ginseng aloe vera, and revitalizing oils that leave skin cleansed and feeling fresh. Ginseng is known for its rejuvenating, wrinkle-fighting properties. Aloe vea moisturizes and helps repair damaged skin

Buy It:
Birchbox: $15 for Five 2-packs

Folding Sunglasses with carrying case
Sample Size: Full size glasses :)
Remember how cool it was every time one of the Transformers would unravel into a robot? Well, these folding sunglasses operate under the same awesome principle. Available in both black and tortoiseshell, these stylish shades feature a timeless silhouette that will flatter any face. They also come with a handy storage case to ensure they don't get stepped on or scratched when not in use. Think of them as the Optimus Prime of eyewear. Hinges along the sides and middle turn these shades into the ultimate grab-and-go accessory. When the sun goes down, simply stow away in the included case.

Buy It:
BirchBox: $25

BirchBox Score:
Old Spice Pure Sport Bar Soap
Sample Size: 1 full size bar soap
BirchBox works hard to bring you the best high-end grooming supplies each month, but they also are always on the lookout for the greatest affordable finds. Their latest score: a newly launched version of Old Spice's Pure Sport Bar Soap, the shower ledge staple that has been keeping limbs crisp and squeaky clean since Roosevelt's second term!

This wasn't shown on their website, so I got my picture from Old Spice's website. This product is available to purchase at many different stores (like WalMart).
