Dorm Life VoxBox

I got another VoxBox from Influenster!  This is a company that sends complementary products to a group of people in exchange for reviews and posts about them.  So this is sponsored in a way, but all opinions are 100% true and my own!  If you want to see allllll of my sponsored posts then check out my Instagram, because they are coming!  I am @bethanyallen15.

This is called the #DormLife VoxBox and it is themed around all the different kinds of things a college girl might want or need!

Look at all of the stuff in this box!  It is packed to the brim, and with a large variety of things, so let's get into it.

This is the Not Your Mother's Naturals Tapioca and Rice Dry Shampoo.  I loooove dry shampoo and use it on the daily, but personally, I am very loyal to Batiste brand.  I have tried a couple others and not really been impressed, but Not Your Mother's is usually a very nice brand, so I was super excited to give this a shot.  This retails for about $9.

This is the Alba Botanica AcneDote Face and Body Scrub.  It has a very nice lather, which I find to be lacking in a lot of facial scrubs.  Though the particles are smaller than a scrub like the St. Ives Apricot, it is still quite abrasive.  This might be a bit rough for regular use on the face, but I feel as if can really get in there on the body!  This has Salicylic Acid in it, which isn't always my favorite since I try to stick to natural treatments like tea tree oil, but if you like this ingredient then it will be great.  It retails for about $6-$7.

TMI Alert
These are the Tampax Pocket Pearl Regular size tampons.  These reminded me of the U-by-Kotex Click tampons.  They work the same way, where they are only the size of the tampon in the wrapper, and then once you open them you pull the handle of the applicator out until it clicks into place.  I actually really liked these!  I am not the biggest fan of tampons because I think they are uncomfortable, but these actually weren't!  Though they did leak a bit initially.  Overall though, I would buy these again, and it came with a coupon!  A box of 34 of these is about $7, but this only came with 3 so I don't have a price for that.

These are the Sour Punch Mini Bites in Assorted and Ragin' Reds.  These come in like an Oreo package where the top peels back and is resealable.  I am not the biggest fan of these already, but that is just a personal preference.  I gave the assorted ones to my roommate and kept the reds, because red is always best.  I looked, and I couldn't really find a set price for these.

This is the Balance Cookie Dough protein bar.  It had 15 grams of protein and 23 vitamins and minerals.  I love the idea of something that's a bit healthier tasting like a dessert, but I'm just not sure I believe that... Protein bars tend to always have a mealy texture that I'm not a fan of, but I'm totally willing to give this one a shot!  A box of six bars retails for about $5, which isn't too bad.

Finally, I received a color from the new Sinful Colors line called Punk Yourself.  The blue is actually a top coat, and it is in the color Rebel Rebel.  It also came with the color Snow Me White to use as a base.  So the thought is, you are supposed to paint a thin coat of the blue topcoat while the base is still wet.  In theory, the blue is supposed to bubble and pull together giving it a tie dyed look, but sadly, it looked more like I'd colored on my nails with a marker.  I'm going to give it another shot because I like the concept, but this just wasn't the best.  I usually love the Sinful Colors brand because they are good quality for a good price, so I'm not hating on the brand! This just wasn't my favorite polish line they've ever released.  If you do want to try it out they are only about $2 each, so you wouldn't be out much!

Rimmel London Wonder' Swipe Voxbox

Straight from the source, the Wonder Swipe Eyeliner's claim's are as follows: 
"SWIPE TO TRANSFORM! Breakthrough formula you can transform with the stroke of a finger.. 2-in-1 formula: a bold metallic liner that can be transformed into a sparkly shadow with one swipe16 ultra pigmented shadesLayer and combine the formula to create unique, show-stopping looksUp to 10 hours wearSmudge-proof, transfer-proof, touch-proof"

I received mine in the color 006 My Bae (fourth from the left), which is very... pink.  I love pink toned eyeshadows, but you've got to be careful!  It is sometimes difficult to walk that line between sunset eyeshadow look and child who broke into their mom's makeup.  Using this as a standalone eyeliner almost takes it a step further to, my child stole used my makeup and the gave me pink eye. Sorry, extended metaphor, moving on.
It is like a paintbrush style applicator, but it is hard like a silicone tip instead of brush hairs.  It makes applicati…

Nadine West: Fourth Shipment

So this wasn't the most successful shipment ever, but I still got one nice piece out of it!  And they left me a sweet surprise which I'll tell you about at the end, so I wasn't upset at all!
This is actually two items from my shipment!  This outfit contains both the shirt and leggings from this month, and they kind of go together!  
Though I really liked the pattern of the leggings, they are much more like tights.  They were totally see through, which made me pretty sad.  If they were marketed as tights then I wouldn't be too disappointed, but these were called Leggings.  They retailed for $14.49, and I didn't keep them.
The shirt fit very well and was extremely comfy.  I have been looking for a shirt this color, so I was pretty excited to see it in my bag, even though it is pretty basic.  This shirt also retailed for $14.49, and I did elect to keep it!
These are the "Beauty Within" earrings, and I'm actually pretty sure I received the matching neckl…

VoxBox: Tressemé Beauty-Full Volume

I know I don't usually post at 9 o'clock on Monday nights, but I wanted to go ahead and get this out to you all while I had time, because... I got another VoxBox! This one was the Tresemmé Reverse Your Routine box with a full sized shampoo and conditioner.

This is a Volumizing system, and is reffered to as "Reverse Your Routine" because you conditioner before you shampoo... Weird right?  I have to say I was a little confused and skeptical at first. The concept is that when you put conditioner in your hair and rinse then residue is left on weighing down your hair.  My thoughts were that the residue left were the moisturizing properties and that you wouldn't want to rid yourself of all of them... It just seemed a little pointless.
I have been using this combination periodically for a few weeks now, and surprisingly I actually really like it!  When I get out of the shower my hair does feel much lighter than usual.  Though it is hard to tell if I have much more volu…
