Maybelline: Better Skin Powder VoxBox #BetterSkinPowder

Hello everyone!

I’m so excited because I received the Maybelline Voxbox with the new Superstay Better Skin Powder complimentary for testing purposes from Influenster.

The shade I’m in is Rich Tan 80. The compact has the powder, a small sponge applicator, and a mirror. It is very thin and small, which is convenient for purses and traveling.

So far, I’m loving this powder! Its description states that it is a “skin-transforming powder” and I totally agree. Don’t get me wrong, it’s not full-coverage, but it does really make a difference.

It contains salicylic acid, which helps with acne, and it is also non-comedogenic. The product claims to “eliminate shine and unevenness”. I’m not sure if it was using this or my other products, but I did have some acne around my t-zone, which went down after I started using this.

It does cover up very well, as you can see in the picture below. I only had on moisturizer, no color correctors, primers, or anything else on my face.

I highly recommend this for people with oily skin! I have very oily skin and large pores, and with this on, my skin didn’t get as oily as it does with other foundations. It has a matte finish. The powder itself is very smooth and the sponge does a great job at applying it. It gives a very good natural look, not dewy at all. After adding finishing powder, it lasts basically all day. The only shine I notice is my t-zone, but not as much as with my other foundations.

It says suitable for all skin types, but if you have really dry skin, I would test out a sample first. The salicylic acid might dry you out more. But normal and oily skin should be fine for this product.

Overall, this product was definitely a hit with me! I’ve been using it everyday since I received it. Hope you guys enjoyed this review and feel free to leave any questions or comments!

Curél: Body Wash and Moisturizing Spray Review

Hello everyone!

I received two products from Influenster that were free, to test and share what I thought about them. They are both products from the brand Curél. I had never heard of this brand before, so I was really intrigued. From what I understand, their specialty is a variety of lotions. They’re a dermatologist recommended brand and many of their products are approved by the National Eczema Association.

First, let’s start off with their Itch Defense Body Wash. It says that it’s a “calming cleanser for dry, itchy skin. Clinically proven to stop the itch before it starts”. On the back it says, “this soap-free formula is a unique blend of gentle cleansers and skin conditioners that creates a rich lather to gently cleanse and soothe itchy skin”. I was really impressed by this! My arms and back are usually very dry and my arms are always rough because I’m usually to lazy to moisturize. After I used this in the shower and dried off, my arms were very soft and smooth. That was surprising to me because they’re usually very dry, right after the shower. I love that it hydrates while you’re in the shower. The two ingrediants that seem to make this possible are jojoba and olive oils, which are in various moisturizing products. I also really like that it smells normal, like how you expect an unscented lotion to smell. My other shower products are heavily scented and sometimes give me a headache, so this was a nice change.

The only downside to the body wash, is that it doesn’t lather well for me. No matter how much I put, I couldn’t build it up. So I just used my regular soap, then tried my best to scrub this after and it worked really well. Other than that, I have no complaints.

The second product they sent me, is the Itch Defense Instant Soothing Moisturizing Spray. The front of this says, “clinically proven to instantly relieve dry, itchy sky with cooling hydration”. The description on the back talks about it’s Advanced Ceramide Therapy, “Ceramides are naturally found in skin’s vulnerable outer layer and help skin retain moisture. When skin’s ceramide levels are low, skin has difficulty retaining moisture.” It goes on to say the Curél moisturizers replenish skin’s ceramide levels. My favorite thing about this is that it’s a spray nozzle! I hate regular lotions where you have to put them on your hands and then your hands get all sticky. You have to press a little harder than usual on the nozzle, but other than that, it works great. I like the cooling feeling of the spray, it provides a nice cooling sensation. It also doesn’t have any added fragrance. Compared to the body wash, this has more of a lingering “lotion” scent, though. It doesn’t bother me, but if you’re sensitive to that maybe try a sample.

I do like how well it moisturizes my skin, but it doesn’t last long for me. After about two hours or so, I need to apply more. I’m not sure if it’s because my skin is too dry or what, but it’s not long-lasting.

Overall, I was really happy to be able to try out these two products. I really like learning about the company and the fact that they have and are continuing to make products that help people with skin problems, such as eczema. It can make their days much easier, having something to alleviate the dryness/itchiness. I love the body wash and will definetely be purchasing that, but the moisturizing spray isn’t my cup of tea.

Let me know what you guys think and if you’ve tried this brand out before!
