Dr. Scholl's For Her Ball of Foot Cushions Review

Another product review! I got these really handy dandy foot cushions complimentary of Influenster's  Vox Box program to review and test out for you all!
These are the foot cushions that you can insert into your heels to help make the ball of your feet more comfortable, and relieve the pain,  hence the name "For Her Ball of Foot Cushions".

The picture above displays the shoes that I wore with the foot cushions. As you can probably see, my shoe has quite the platform and heel so it is quite painful to be in these shoes for a long period of time, but using the foot cushions helped relieve my feet of pain..some what.

Not the most attractive type of packaging, but I'm not one to really care about packaging. As long as the product works well, then I'm sold!

According to Dr. Scholl's, the cushions are made with "unique FabuSTEP gel." I'm guessing that is why the cushions are very squishy and gel-like in form. It stuck to my shoe quite nicely, and didn't really slide around which was quite shocking to me because I can get sweaty feet.
The only downside to this would be the fact that it didn't relieve my foot pain fully. Of course with any foot cushion out there, wearing heels for long periods of time guarantee's pain at the end of the day, so I was able to accept that these cushions wouldn't relieve me of the pain fully. BUT, it did make my feet feel much more comfortable than when I didn't have these in my shoes.
It definitely helped prevent any toe scrunching. I know this because being a longer toed girl, I know what it feels like to have my toes scrunched up inside of a heel and this cushion really helped with that.

I like them, but I'm not in love with them.

I hope you all enjoyed this review!

Bath & Body Works Fine Fragrance Mist

Another product review for you all^^
Today's review is on Bath & Body Works NEW Fine Fragrance Mist in Sweet Pea. I received this complimentary of Influensters Vox Box program to test and review and I was so happy to see this in my box! It  has been a very long time since I've used Sweet Pea and this was a nice way to start using it again.

As you can see, the bottle of this fragrance mist is quite large.
It has 8 fl. oz/ 236 mL. That is a lot of product~!
Retails for: $14.00

I love the design of this packaging because it's very sleek and pretty. But, their is one downside to it. It's kind of difficult to grip when you are trying to spray on the actual product because it is so sleek. 
I love the little floral design on it and the fact that it looks like the spray has two different colors. The bottle is pink with a little bit of green at the base of it. This gives the illusion of a two phased liquid which I thought was really cool:)

It is a very fine mist. When you spray it on, it doesn't feel oily or sticky. It dries really quickly and lives up to it's description of being "mist as light as air". 

Lasting Power:
Like all body sprays, this is the same. The scent doesn't last as long, so throughout the day I found myself spraying it on several times. Although the lasting power is not as long, I really like the scent. It's perfect for spring and summer because it's light and floral. 

The sprays come in several different scents (over 20 scents) which is also another plus because you can pink the scent you really like.

Overall, I really like this fragrance mist. It's really light and floral for the summer time and it has become my summer scent. ^^

That is it for today's product review~

Thank you for reading!

Sheer Cover Review: Duo Concealer

Another product review for you all! ^^

Recently, I was given the opportunity to try out Sheer Cover's Duo Concealer  in light/medium. I recieved this product, complimentary of Influensters Voxbox Program.
Here I am with my bare face. 

The concealer is very creamy and rich, but it's not heavy and thick like some creamy concealers can be.

The great thing about this concealer is the fact that it comes with two shades which is great for creating your own custom shade.

Texture/ Consistency:
According to Sheer Cover, this concealer "not only covers up the look of dark circles, blemishes, redness and age spots, it also moisturizes with Jojoba and Allantoin."
Jojoba "helps to nourish and restore the skins natural moisture balance."
I agree with this because the concealer is very smooth and it really does moisturize my undereye area. 
When you blend the concealer into the skin, it doesn't blend into a powdery finish so it's still pretty moist after you blend it out, so I suggest set it with a little bit of powder. 
The consistency of this concealer is very creamy. It's so creamy that it glides on like butter. 

"Sheer and creamy perfect for under eye circles or more opaque for blemishes, dark spots and hyper-pigmentation." - Sheer Cover
The coverage is pretty light, but you can actually start off with a very light layer and then add more light layers on top until you have the coverage that you want. 
I love using this for my under eyes because it really brightens up that area. Having dark circles makes me look tired so when I have a good concealer that brightens and helps me looks awake, that is always a plus for me. 
It's also said to be good for hyperpigmentation which I have around my lips and I noticed that it helped alot with that as well. I loved the fact that it evened out my skintone without making it look like I had covered it up. It was very natural. 

 After: On one under eye and blended down the nose. 

After: on both under eyes and blended down nose and around the lips. 

Pretty big difference huh? ^^

Lasting Power:
This concealer stays on for a really long time, but you should set it with a powder. I noticed that when it hasn't been set, it can fade away really quickly. BUT when set, it stays on pretty much all day long. 

I am loving this concealer~!! Plain and simple, I love this concealer!

That is it for this product review!

Hope you all enjoyed~^^
