I'm baaaack... with some Reviews

Oh I missed blogging these past few weeks, but it's kinda hard to blog without internet!  And lemme just say, me & the guys at AT&T U-verse had QUITE a few heated discussions.  But I finally have internet!

Besides that, I've been doing alot of this:


Just sitting in the library (where there was internet) studying.  Yuck.

I also started working at my student employee job a few hours each week.  So I definitely have a full plate.  That may be why I haven't unpacked yet? Maybe? Or maybe I'm just lazy. 

But I've loved getting mail at my new place!  Makes it feel so "official".  Last week I got this little nugget on my doorstep:


My first Influenster box!  Woohoo!  I mean, who doesn't love free stuff?

I got the Good Life VoxBox and it included:
1. New-Skin Liquid Bandage
2. ZonePerfect Greek Yogurt Bars
3. UrgentRx Fast Powders
4. the Vitamin Shoppe Garcinia Cambogia
5. Nonni's THINaddictives


I had just gotten home from school and was starrrrving so I chowed down the Nonni's THINaddictives immediately.  They were DELICIOUS!  I loved how they were crunchy, yet chewy at the same time.  How did they do that?  They had cranberries and almonds in them, but neither were overwhelming.  It was the perfect amount of sweet and a good amount of cookies with 3 wafers in the pack.  I can't believe they were only 100 calories!  Usually the 100 calorie packs just piss me off.  I would definitely hunt these down in the store.

I packed the ZonePerfect Greek Yogurt Bar in my backpack one day for a quick lunch.  It was very filling with the bar being packed with protein.  It was sweet, but not crazy like some of those chocolate bars that seem like they are over-compensating for something.  I liked how it was chewy and easy to eat (who wants to lose teeth while getting their munch on?).  I would recommend these little guys as well.

Since I am a total klutz, it wasn't long before I got to use the New-Skin Liquid Bandage.



I slammed my fingertip in the screen door and made it bleed, so I thought I would try to new stuff on it. I've used liquid bandage before and it burned like hell.  Luckily, New-Skin did not burn at all!  It works as an antiseptic and dries quickly and covers well. But as you can see, it is definitely made for large surfaces (it kinda said that on the box, duh). My biggest issue: it stinks!  I'm a huge smell person and could not stand the smell of this product on my finger.  So if you aren't bothered by a weird smell, maybe this product will work for you.

I think this line of UrgentRx Fast Powder products is fabulous!  They provide fast-acting flavored powders that you can take without water. I got one a lemon-lime flavored headache powder that includes aspirin & caffeine, but due to health reasons I can't take either of those. I will be forwarding this little gem onto a friend.  They also have powders for heartburn, allergies, and upset stomach.

Lastly, I got a bottle of the Vitamin Shoppe Garcinia Cambogia which is a weight management product.  Garcinia Cambogia is a fruit native to Southeast Asia, India, and West Africa.  Research shows it may prevent fat storage and suppress appetite. Apparently this supplement is the new rage in weight loss and has been featured on Dr. Oz. I haven't taken any of the supplements yet because I wanted to do more research, but I did open the bottle and view the capsules.  The capsules are gel-coated and look easy-to-swallow and do not have a major smell to them.  These kinda things are important to me, ha.

So there you guys go!  If you have any questions about any of the products featured in my Influenster box, please let me know!

Disclosure: I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes

  1. Super glue also works... for when you run out of the liquid bandage. Jus sayin.

    Also, I bought some of the Garcinia Cambogia on a whim but I've been afraid to try it. Too many OTC's make me loopy regardless of what they claim so I'm just going to wait to see what you think before I brave it. :D
