Le Tote First Time.. Review

Hiya all!!

Long time no blog…

After months and months of mindfully ignoring my co-workers le tote praises I finally broke and sent out for my very first le tote. I have been pushing off the urge to try it out and once I cracked I was sure to send my work mates a kind of joking, kind of serious “Hate you Bye” email.  I have to say so far so good….I have held onto my first tote for a little longer than I`m sure most people do but that’s because I have a dress I`m holding onto for a wedding I have in a few weeks. I still may return and try to get a new one but who knows.. Time will tell 🙂

The clothes are all clean and in good shape, I don’t feel like I`m really wearing an outfit that’s been worn by multiple other people. And I mean.. I am a millennial and reduce, reuse, recycle is a mantra ingrained into my mind.

When I first signed up the options they had in my first tote were NOT me, but you have 48 hours to swap out styles and after having the app for a bit you can browse and save items into your “closet” so if the piece is available they will show up in your next tote, or you can swap out for it. You have to keep all of the items you received and send them back together unless you would like to purchase an item, in that case you would send back everything EXCEPT the lucky piece that has earned itself a home in your wardrobe.

I have some pictures of the styles I received in my first tote.

Thank you for reading, I`ll be sure to post updated totes on my instagram account so come check it out!

dr. brandt review

I don’t know about you all but I am always on the look out for new skincare. I’ve always been into working to maintain healthy and happy skin… Maybe its because I`m terrified of getting older… (make it stop!!) But imagine my excitement when I received the dr. brandt voxbox complimentary from influenster. I have been trying some of the products for about two weeks now, I wanted to be sure I actually used the products more than once before I wrote my review 🙂

The voxbox came with 9 different products to try out. I have them listed below:

  • Detoxifying Antioxidant Water Booster
  • Magnetight Age-Defier mask
  • Needles No More cream
  • Needles No More 3-D volumizing Mask
  • Microdermabrasion Age-Defying Exfoliator
  • HydroBiotic Recovery Sleeping Mask
  • Power Dose Vitamon C
  • XYY Face Cream
  • Pore No More Luminizer Primer

Below are my reviews on my top 3 of the voxbox.

Hydro Biotic Recovery Sleeping Mask- I LOVE LOVE LOVE this mask! From the first time I used it I knew it was going to be my favorite one. It hydrated my skin so well without making it feel like I was overwhelming it with a super heavy cream. My favorite part of this mask is that it is supposed to balance the skin’s naturally occurring flora.. I know to some that may sound a bit icky but I`m all about that life! It makes me feel like its doing more for my skin then just making it feel good.

Microdermabrasion Age-Defying Exfoliator- This exfoliator is no joke! I barely even applied any pressure to my skin while rubbing this miracle cream on my skin and I could feel the little bits of exfoliates doing their thing!  I’d be lying if I told you I have slacked in the past with exfoliating my skin, but after using this product from the voxbox I feel like I can tell when my face is due for its next round!

Magnetight Age-Defier mask- I was so excited to see this in my influenster package. I always see the short clips on instagram of people using these magnet masks and I felt like I was living out a previous unknown dream of mine… dramatic? I know… Anyways I have to say the removal part wasn’t as effortless as I always thought, I found myself fighting with the tissues you are supposed to use to cover the magnet, but aside from my non-coordinated clumsiness I LOVE THIS MASK. I don’t think I’ve ever used a mask that I could immediately notice a difference in my skin after its off of my face. My skin tone looked so even and it felt genuinely amazing.

Lash Boost… Oh My Gawsh

Lash Boost Baby! This stuff is AHHmazing! I don’t get too excited over much when it comes to these type of products, but I cannot say enough about Lash Boost by Rodan + Fields. I seriously wish that I had taken before and after pictures because the difference in my lashes is insane!

As much as I hate to admit it, I`m one of those people that doesn’t believe that a change I see in the mirror is real unless I have verbal confirmation from someone else.. Like maybe my brain is just making it up?! (Maybe I should go to a shrink about that?!) but I have been getting compliments left and right for the difference this has made to my eyeballs!

When I decided to buy it I was on the verge of the splurge for eyelash extensions. I wanted them long and I wanted them fast. But the more research I did, and people I talked to, the more they seemed to be irritating as hell! You had to pay an arm and a leg for them, they last 3 weeks, if you are lucky… AND you look like a weirdo when its time for a fill. Not to mention that I’ve heard from multiple people that it made their lashes worse… WHAT?! NOT TODAY.

My justification for purchasing this product (because it is expensive, around $150ish) was that if I wanted eyelash extensions so much, I’d be spending around the same amount for the first round, then even more every couple of weeks to get them filled. So why not try something that may be expensive, but is cheaper in the long run and it enhances my NATURAL lashes.

Once I received it in the mail I literally ran to my makeup mirror to start the magic. I was instructed to use it once a day at night on a clean lid for 6 weeks. Then after the 6 weeks of daily use, drop down to using it as needed. I got my little bundle of eyelash joy in May and am STILL on the same bottle. I use a small amount on my lash line a couple times a week and I can truly say I’ve found my first ride or die beauty product. The only bad thing I have to say about this product is that my lashes are so long, when I put on mascara I have trouble keeping it off my lids… TOUGH LIFE RIGHT?!

If you have been on the fence about purchasing Lash Boost, I hope this post helps you make up your mind! This post is based on my honest and true feedback. You`ll have to let me know how it works for you!

Have you tried Lash Boost?! If so.. what do you think?!
