Say it with a Kiss {Influenster}

Who doesn’t love a new batch of products to sample?
A batch of products that includes chocolate?
Yes, I’m there.
Count me in!VoxBox Collage
When my latest J’Adore VoxBox arrived I was stoked to see all of the awesome products I got to try :-)
  • Red Rose Simply Indulgent Tea- I love my hot tea in the morning before work but I never drink flavored tea at home because every time I try it I don't like it.  I was so surprised with this tea!  The smell was amazing and I think my eyes must to have bugged out as I was smelling it because I was so shocked.  The creme caramel tea and the lemon chiffon tea both had a sweet flavor but not a sweet taste (I don't know if that makes sense to anyone else but me lol).  I received 4 different samples and every time I got to the bottom of my mug I got so sad!  I have been looking for this tea at my grocery store and can’t seem to find it.  I’m definitely on the hunt for more!
  • Frizz Ease 3-Day Flat Iron Spray- I have never used any of the Frizz Ease products before, though I remember always wanting to try them in high school.  I used 5 squirts despite the minimum of 7 that was recommended.  I just don't like a lot of product in my hair because it tends to weigh my hair down and make it look oily.  I'm glad I only went with 5 squirts because it totally weighed my hair down and it looked greasy at the crown of my head all day.  My hair was also really static-y.  I would probably not purchase this product in the future.
  • Dove Advanced Care Deodorant- I have used Dove deodorant many times before but not this series.  My previous trial-size deodorant just was not cutting it, especially with my hormones making me a human furnace combined with the increase in Houston temperatures, so this came at the perfect time.  At first I noticed just how great this deodorant smelled; very floral but not over-powering.   I liked this for a few days until I realized that it did not dry clear.  I had been walking around with white spots on my clothes, and you seriously can't get that stuff out even with washing sometimes.  This was very disappointing to me because it smelled so good.  I guess I just assumed that every deodorant company made their product dry clear now.  I mean why wouldn't they?!  So I’ve moved on to a new deodorant already, but I do have to say that it is still a Dove product just one that drives clear and has a regular scent.
  • Boots Botanics Shine Away Ionic Clay Mask- I didn't really see much of a difference with this mask.  My skin was definitely smoother after application, but it didn't feel any cleaner.  I like to feel when my cleaners are cleaning, and I just didn't have that sensation not to say that it wasn't clean though. Does that make sense?
  • KISS Looks So Natural Lashes- I have not worn false lashes since dance competitions in college, so I have to say that I was a bit hesitant when these arrived.  I don’t want to look like.....well like someone going to a dance competition lol  I have yet to wear these, and I don’t foresee an opportunity to sport these anytime soon.
  • Hershey's Milk Chocolate Kisses- I have passed these little pieces of love around to my students and I still have a lot sitting on my desk right now.  These are always a staple and yummy.

Pass on the love friends, and let me know if there are any other new products I should try!
I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes.

That TEA!!!!! My favorite by far!!!

I didnt like that spray either, it was the same on my hair and I didnt really use much either

I didnt get the Dove, I got Mens Vaseline spray lotion but I do use that deodorant and I love it!

I felt the same w. the mask while my face felt smooth it really didnt cleanse it much

What a neat box! Had no idea this one existed. I may need to try this! And I love Botanics!! Haven't used it in awhile, but really enjoyed it when I did :)
And who doesn't love some kisses?

I'm not really a fan of Frizz Ease products. They seem to always make my hair look worse, lol.

And I love having tea at night. I recently tried a new one and it's so good. I forget the name, but I know part of the flavor is vanilla bean. Yum!

I love Dove deodorant! When used consistently it makes your armpits sooo soft! Lol

I am a big fan of tea as well!

I know you follow me on Bloglovin', so I just wanted to update you that my url changed (and like a dummy), I forgot to post it BEFORE I moved my blog to a new URL- so when I sent out the update no one already following me could see it... ugh.

So FYI, I'm now permanently at, and I have a link posted in the most recent post if you'd like to refollow through Bloglovin'. New layout and content is pending, but I wanted to be sure my friends actually see it (so embarrassing!)

Thanks for your support and understanding with the hiccups in the change!
