There have been a few product review and showcases on the blog revolving around the Influenster boxes I receive every few months. I was excited to be accepted into the Luxe Box Review campaign because these are the best of the best. A mix of different products in their full size to play with and potentially love.
I will admit this box was a bit different for me and some products I loved instantly. I have heard RAVE reviews on the amika: Texture Spray and have always wanted to try it out. The AQUIS hair towel is a fan favorite and another product I was very interested in trying. On the other hand the Grande Lips lip plumber was a bit out of my comfort zone but totally worth a try. Who doesn’t want fuller and softer lips?
Check out each of the products below and my honest review on each. Thanks to Influenster for the complimentary products for my review. All opinions are my own.
amika: Nourishing Mask
My hair is constantly dry from drying, curling, styling and just overall abuse of my hair. You would think being married to a hair stylist I would know better. After one use with this mask my hair was like silk. My ends appeared less dry and the texture of my hair overall was smooth and shiny.
dr. brandt No MORE BAGGAGE Eye De-Puffing Gel
I am in love with another de-puffing eye cream but decided to give this a try. It came at the perfect opportunity as Quinn has been teething AND has hand-foot-mouth. This momma had 4 hours of sleep in 24 hours and the bags were real. I applied and waiting before putting on my makeup and seriously the darkness under my eyes had faded slightly and my bags were no more.
amika: UN.DONE Texture Spray
Along with having dry hair, it’s also flat, thin and fine. Dry shampoo is too chalky to give the texture I need before curling. I have ALWAYS heard great things about the amika:UN.DONE and was super excited to try it. Honestly, it was the one thing I wanted to try the most and the one product I love the most out of all of them.
Grande Lips Hydrating Lip Plumper
The one product I was not excited about and feel on the fence over. I don’t have or feel the need to plump my lips so for the functionality of it, it’s not something I’m in to personally. I received mine in clear and while it’s great for everyday, if I’m going to wear something on my lips I do it intentionally and with color. But I did find that they offer the lip plumper’s in different shades. They didn’t overly plump them and it wasn’t noticeable. They seemed “fuller”, the tingling sensation wasn’t painful and the applicator was easy enough to use.
AQUIS Luxe Hair Towel
Would you think that a towel can actually make a difference on your hair? I would have answered NO to this prior to using the AQUIS towel. It helped my hair dry faster and kept it from feeling and looking frizzy. I have naturally curly hair so on the days I let my natural curl go, frizz is my enemy. This towel kept the frizz away and allowed my natural hair to look its best.
