Previously, I had posted a blog about INFLUENSTER and their "VOX BOX" program. I had posted pictures and descriptions of the products I received in my complimentary Spring Vox Box. Today I am posting about one of the items I received. SHEER COVER CONCEALER
This concealer duo is perfect for all skin types and tones. It comes in a compact with two shades that can be used separately or combined together to get your perfect match. It is great for dark undereye circles, blemishes, dark spots, hyperpigmentation or uneven skin tone. This can be used either alone or under/over your makeup. I carry it in my bag everywhere for touch-ups throughout the day. I find it very light and creamy. It's not too heavy at all. I use it under my eyes, over blemishes and on and around my nose where it gets red from allergies. Sheer Cover instantly covers your imperfections for a flawless look without feeling heavy and looking caked on. You can vary your coverage, using it lightly on the delicate undereye area, or layered for coverage of blemishes and dark spots. This product is also so easy to apply. You can use your fingertips, but I recommend using a concealer brush or sponge to dab a small amount on the area you want to cover. After blending, you can layer more as needed. Because it is so sheer, you can make use as little or as much as you need. Sheer Cover has natural moisturizers. Jojoba nourishes and restores your skin's natural moisture balance. Allantoin , an antioxidant, calms and soothes sensitive, irritated skin, protecting it from free radicals. Sheer Cover is dermatologist tested.

A few months back, I signed up for a program called INFLUENSTER (www.influenster.com ). Here is how it works: You fill out small surveys to earn "badges" which represent areas that you have high influence on others (blogging, pets, social networking, etc.) Based upon your badges and activity on the site, they select a few individuals to receive what they call voxboxes. A Voxbox contains several products that have been selected for you to test, evaluate and recommend to others. There is no charge for this program and you get to keep the products you test. All you have to do is spread the word about them via Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, your own blog and word of mouth. After, they will ask you to review and also take a post evaluation survey. Your activity in these tasks will help you be selected for future programs. Sounds easy, right? Today I received my very first voxbox. It is the SPRING VOXBOX. here is what I received inside:
SHEER COVER DUO CONCEALER This item is sold in a one-month supplie of 6 products and 3 bonus products for $29.95 I received one duo with 2 shades. It is for hiding blemishes,age spots, redness, scars and other imperfections.(undereye bags,anyone?)
AVEENO DAILY MOISTURIZING BODY WASH This retails for $6.99-$8.99 for a full size bottle. I received one 24 oz. sample It's a lightly fragranced, soap-free, dye-free and hypo-allergenic body wash that is safe for all skin types.
CHAPSTICK LIP SHIELD 365 Retails for $1.89-$2.39 I received one regular size stick. This is a new product from ChapStick. It offers year-round protection for your lips with an SPF of 50 and blocks against UVA/UVB rays.
SALLY HANSEN SALON EFFECTS Retails for $9.99 I received one package of 16 nail strips in a very pretty multi-color glitter. these are used in place of nail polish(just peel,apply and file-no drying time)and are supposed to last 10 days. I will try them this weekend.
BATH & BODY WORKS FINE FRAGRANCE MIST Retails for $14.99 and I received a full size bottle of SWEET PEA> This is supposed to be a better, more delicate version of their body splash. Unfortunately, I cannot use flowery scents because of my allergies, so even though this was an exciting item for me because I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Bath and Body Works, I am going to have to skip this one and let someone else try it out for me.:-(
SOYJOY BAR Retails for $0.99- $1.29 I received blueberry. This is an all-natural fruit bar made with whole soy. And they added a last minute bonus item:
DR SCHOLL'S FOR HER BALL OF FOOT CUSHIONS (unknown retail value) I received one package of these and I think mt feet will love them. They are used to help prevent ball of foot pain an as a lover of high heels, I know I will be trying these very soon! So now, I will be trying out all of these in the coming week or so and hopefully, I will have great reviews of all of them. Remember, when in doubt-ask a redhead because REDHEADS KNOW BEST!
