Inflkuenster's Vox Box LypSyl Review

LypSyl Instense Protection Lypmoisturizer

I really love this product!  When I first put it on my lips it went on really nice and smooth.  It is extremely moisturizing and stays like that for a long time.  My lips get really dry and chapped easily and so this is now my go-to lip moisturizer.  I use it at night time when I go to bed.  I really like the mint freshness that is in it, which at first had a slight tingly feeling on my lips.  What I really love about LypSyl is that is long lasting and is made with Sweedish Beeswax and Organic Shea Butter!

And it also has a fresh minty flavor, coconut oil that moisturizes, organic shea butter that helps heals and protects and Vitamins A & E to also soften and heal.

This is a great product and I would most definitely purchase.  One of the better lip protector/moisturizers that I have tried.  

Influenster's "The Original" Dish Drying Mat

The Original Dish Drying Mat

One of the products I got for review in my Influenster's Naturals VoxBox was The Original Dish Drying Mat.  My husband is the kitchen guru of our home and when I gave this dish drying mat he was really excited.  I mean REALLY EXCITED that it was rather enduring to see it.  He said he had been wanting something like this since he uses paper towels to lay on the counter to put hand washed or freshly pulled from the dishwasher items.  It's great because it cuts down on the amount of paper towels that he uses, it's very absorbent, plus you can wash it and reuse it over and over.  It's really great because it's cushioned so it's delicate on dishes and glassware, and it also folds up neatly if he wants to put it away in a drawer.  So this is definitely a very welcomed item to receive from Influenter.  Oh and just to let you know....this item should never be used as a pot holder, oven mitt or hot pad.  The price of the size we received is $4.99 and worth every penny! It is available exclusively at Bead Bath & Beyond.

Julep Nail Polish

Julep is a monthly subscription for nail polishes.  You do the usual of taking a style quiz to figure out your style profile.  Their styles are American Beauty, Boho Glam, Bombshell, Classic with a Twist and It Girl.  Once you do that you they pick out what style you are. You can sign up for monthly ($19.99), prepaid 3 months ($59.97), 6 months ($119.94) or 12 months ($239.88).  You receive at least $40 of hand picked Julep products.  What I love about their nail polish is that they are "4-free"  meaning they don’t contain the carcinogens formaldehyde, formaldehyde resin, toluene or DBP.

The perks you get from joining Julep:

  • 20% off all purchases in the Julep Maven Boutique
  • Free Shipping
  • Extra discounts
  • Easy exchanges
  • No commitment - you can skip any box and you won't be charged that month.  And you can cancel your account at any time.

Got my first order of Julep for August.  I did the style quiz on their website and was selected for the "Classic" collection. Didn't really like the colors that were offered under Classic and selected the polished from the "American Beauty" collection.  So this month I got Emma (a champagne frost with pink and purple shimmers), Renee (a lavender cream).  I also got a tube of "The Best Pedi Creme Ever!" (it exfoliates with AHAs and hydrates with Shea butter and coconut oil and also nourishes with essential oils and vitamin E.  It has a cucumber mint scent).  It all came in a cute adorable small tote too!  Can't wait to try these nail polishes!!
