Bath & Body Works NEW & Improved Shower Gel

Disclaimer: I received this product complimentary to test through Influenster's VoxBox program. The Latina Beauty VoxBox 2012. 

Bath & Body Works has re-released these favorite scents (and many others now) with a new Shea enriched formula. The new formula gives you softer, and cleaner skin. The scent lasts even longer now! I love that the shower gel lathers to a thicker, fluffy foam! Influenster sent me Sweet Pea. Sweet Pea is a old favorite scent of mine, I feel that it is targeted to a younger audience and thats fine, I prefer Twilight Woods and Secret Wonderland! I have to give Bath & Body Works an A+ for this new formula. Not only has Bath & Body Works changed the formula, they are changing the look of their bottles! Brand new designs. 

One thing that I love about the new formula of the shower gels is the BUBBLES! Nothing is better then lighting a bunch of candles (my favorite right now is Sweet Macaron) and soaking in a hot bubble bath! 

I just checked the website, they are running a special during the Labor day weekend! Buy 3 and get 3 for free! I will be taking advantage of this special! Will you! I really hope to read and see posts if you do! 3 wick candles are 2 for $20.00 and hand soaps for 4 for $15.00 or 6 for $20.00.

NYC New York Color

Disclaimer: I received this product complimentary to test and review through Influenter's VoxBox program.

NYC New York Color Liquid Lipshine - is a lipgloss that is packed with Vitamin E to provide a great shine and a moisturizing feel. The formula is non-sticky, super shiney and soft. These Liquid Lipshines are available in 10 trendy colors from nudes to berries & fuscsias. A very affordable gloss found at any shopping store or drug store. The price is $2.49 for this gloss. .

The color I received in my VoxBox was Nude York City - I tried on the color right away, I will admit I did not like the color on me, but the way this gloss just shine and how moisturizing it was made me go out and purchase Prospect Pink and City's Clear. These glosses are the perfect size for on the go and no touch ups were needed. I went out with a group of friends and they kept stealing my gloss! There is a perfect shade for everyone. I honestly hope that NYC comes out with more shades ( I hope in the red family) I would love to see what they can do with a bright ruby red color. I love these glosses and can't wait to see more. Remember though that a little goes a long way with these. Do not apply to much or else the formula can get a bit tacky. That is my only con about this product. The rest is up for you to decide! Great product for a great price!

VEET wax strips

Wickee review! Disclaimer: I received this product complimentary for testing and review purposes from Influenster. Latina Beauty VoxBox 2012

VEET ready to use wax strips! I had to say that at first I was a little on edge about waxing my legs (bad past experiences) I loved how organized everything was in the box and the directions are very simple. Inside the box contains 40 full size wax strips and 6 wipes. The wipes are Almond Oil. I will say that they are on the greasy side, so I would advise to use them after you wax your problem areas.

The day after I received my Voxbox - I used these strips on my mother and myself. One wax packet contains two strips. You take the strips and rub them between your hands to warm the wax, place the strip in the direction your hair is growing, rub the strip so that it sticks to the area, there is a pointed tab on each strip, fold the tab in between your fingers and 1,2,3 pull the strip in the opposite direction. I found that with each wax strips you can get 2 or 3 uses out of (if they're still sticky) After you wax, take a wipe packet and rub your freshly waxed area down and you have a perfect sheen and smoothness to your legs.

I will be honest and say that my legs are very sensitive and were irritated after using these strips, but my mom was just fine. If you plan on trying out these wax strips, I would advise cutting a piece of a strip and testing it out first before you jump into a full wax session.

Hawaiian Tropic Silk Hydration Lotion Sunscreen

Disclaimer: I received this product complimentary for testing and review purposes from Influenster. 

First I want to thank Influenster for sending me an amazing product to review. Hawaiian Tropic Silk Hydration Lotion Sunscreen is by far my favorite product that Influenster sent in the VoxBox. I have attached my favorite beach products and Hawaiian Silk hydration made the cut! This product is not like any normal sunscreen, it's a combination product of both sunscreen and lotion. The scent (to me) because I am horrible with scents but to me this product has a bit of a light vanilla mixed with coconut scent. When I was at the pool, I applied this product and instantly it absorb to my skin. I love how smooth my skin feels and no worries about sticky feelings. I have repurchased this product. I bought a full size bottle for $5.00.

Also available in SPF 12, 30, 50!

With its ultra-luxurious hydrating silk ribbons, Hawaiian Tropic Silk Hydration™ lotion sunscreen nourishes and pampers skin while providing broad spectrum UVA and UVB protection, and 12-hour moisturization when out in the sun.

Where to Buy

You can find Hawaiian Tropic products at most major retailers.
Suggested retail price: $8.99 for a 6oz bottle

First product review: two parts Always Radiant Infinity Pads and Always/Tampax Radiant Collection

Reviewing first: Always Radiant Infinity Pads: I received these products complimentary for testing and review purposes. I was not paid by Influenster, Always or Tampax for my reviews. 

Now I know that a lot of women no longer wear pads, but I honestly have to say that I was shocked when I first saw this full size box of pads in my voxbox. I have to say that when I was a lot younger I used always pads, but never stuck to it for long because of the fact, I felt like I was wearing a diaper. Now Always has completely changed the look and feel of their pads. The Always Radiant Infinity pads are super thin, they have a lite scent and the best part, you forget you are even wearing them. With this box of pads I received a $5.00 coupon inside and went ahead and purchased a back up box. (a little TMI ) pads are always great to use on your first day of your cycle. These pads are great! and Always affordable.

The 2nd item to go along with the Always pads were the Always Radiant Collection. I am in love with the pouch. Inside of the box is a adorable Purple/Hotpink pouch (little wrislet) inside of the pouch was: 1 Always Pad, 3 unscented liners, and 1 regular unscented tampon and 1 unscented super tampon. That way you can get to test out more Always/Tampax products if you ever curious. The pouch is the perfect size for any handbag. If you are out with the girls and don't want to take your whole purse with you to the restroom, or if your girlfriend need a tampon and you don't want to show the world what you are handing her, the pouch is a perfect grab and go.

Hello loves!
I figured I would do a update and share a awesome webiste I am apart of, Influenster! I will post all of their links after my review.

In case you are not aware, Influenster is a site that is very similar to burchbox, except there is no fee. It's completely free! On this site, you unlock badges, take a few surveys and based on your answers, you may qualify for a VOXBOX. A voxbox is a something that Influenster sends you for free, to review the products they have selected for a particular group to review. Every VOXBOX is different, for example:
Recently I was sent the Latina Beauty Voxbox 2012.
Inside of this box contained: Veet Ready-To-Use Wax Strips, Always Radiant Infinity Pads, Always/Tampax Radiant collection, Hawaiian Tropic Silk Hydration SPF 30 moisutrizing lotion, NYC Liquid lipshine and Bath & Body works new Shea formula shower gel in Sweet pea. I wanted to give a very honest review and waited a few days to a week before I submitted my reviews on the website and made a YouTube video. I will be reviewing each product in the next few posts. I had a lot of fun with this and hope to continue to be apart of the reviewing process. Happy blogging :)
