Pampers Easy Ups Influenster Review

I recieved two packs of Pampers Easy Ups pull ups from Influenster for free for testing purposes. I like them and my son loves them. He loves the Thomas the train designs. He loves that unlike diapers, he can pull them up and pull them off when it's time to use the potty. While potty training can be difficult, using these are a breeze. The sides can be easily ripped in case of an emergency where my son can't pull them down fast enough. They are absorbent enough in case we don't make it to the potty in time. I feel they are fairly priced and work for their purpose. This sample came in at the perfect time as we were getting ready to start potty training. Thanks, Influenster!!

Mumsie Naturals Review

I received a bottle of Mumsie Naturals Daily Facial Moisturizer free from Influenster this month. 
My first thought when reading about this voxbox was its not for me. I'm not pregnant or breastfeeding so why do I need this? I was so wrong. It's a facial moisturizer with sunscreen. I need it. I didn't know what I was getting just what brand it was. Every woman needs a facial moisturizer unless you're an alien blessed with perfect skin. The sunscreen is a great bonus since my toddler has me wandering around outside for hours at a time as we discover new and exciting things. 
The scent is amazing! It has a hint of citrus and a few other spices I can't pick out. The smell can be overwhelming but slowly becomes un-noticeable to myself. 
I do like the way it makes my face feel after it dries. 
However, the bottle and box say it has natural ingredients. I could be wrong here but I feel like most of the ingredients are not natural. (Read: long words I can't even begin to pronounce.) For that reason, I am giving this product 4/5 stars. I would definitely recommend this product to anyone looking to test a moisturizer. 
I received this product free from Influenster but all opinions are my own.

Zzzquil Vox Box

I was selected to participate in the Zzzquil Vox box this month. This is not my first time trying Zzzquil and I doubt it will be my last. 
First things first, Zzzquil is not a pain reliever such as Advil pm. It will help you fall asleep quickly (20 minutes or so in) and help you sleep all night. It is recommended to take at a time that will allow you to sleep for 7-8 hours. I this non habit forming. 
Zzzquil does help me fall asleep fast and it does help me sleep all night. However, I usually wake up very grogy. This is due to the very odd dreams I have when I use it. They are very vivid and only happen when I take this pill. I'm not sure if everyone has this effect or just a few people like me.

#VividMatte VoxBox

This month I received two shades of Maybelline Color Sensational Vivid Matte Liquid. The two colors I received were Rebel Red and Nude Flush. The red is great for a night out and gives a great color pop for your lips. The nude is a more subtle color close to my natural lip color but still enough of a color to show that I'm wearing lipstick. 
The colors of this product are very pigmented. They're definitely true to what's in the bottle. The gloss goes on very smooth and has a lovely non lipstick scent to it. However, I wouldn't call this a true matte, even when blotting it with a tissue as recommended  it's not very matte. It's more of a semi-gloss and I'm a fan of a more matte finish. However, I really liked the product, the price point ($7-$10 depending on store), and the colors. 
I received these products for free from Influenster for testing purposes but all opinions are my own.

Cake Mix Cookies

I decided to make these last month and never wrote about it. I know, I'm an awful blogger. That or life got in the way. 
Anyhow, I made some delicious cake batter cookies with my free sample of Country Crock margarine I got from Influenster last month. They're really easy to make and you can pretty much add in whatever you want to make it your own. In fact, I split my batch in half and made a confetti batch and a chocolate chip batch, but I'm focusing on the confetti batch for this post. 
You will need:
1 yellow butter cake mix (I used Pilsberry) 
2 tbs large sprinkles + more for decorating (optional)
1/2 cup margarine or butter ( I used my free from Influenster country crock margarine)
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla 
Icing (optional)
Preheat your oven to 350. Line a baking sheet with wax paper and coat it with cooking spray. 
Mix all of your ingredients, minus the icing. 
Scoop out 1 tbs of dough and form a ball. Place them each 2 inches apart. 
Bake for 12 minutes. 
Wait for them to cool and decorate with icing and more sprinkles. 
They're so delicious. So moist and gooey yet taste like cake. Did I mention they're the easiest cookies to make? 
Until next time.

Country Crock Review

This month's VoxBox was really a VoxVoucher. I'm cool with that. It was a coupon for a free tub of Country Crock butter. It's like Infuenster knows I'm a fat kid. I love butter. You have toast? I have butter! You have mashed potatoes? I have butter! You want to bake cookies? I have sugar, flour, eggs, & .....yup; butter! 
Yesterday I got home early and decided to get involved with the #MakeItYourOwn campaign. I make cake cookies. They were awesome. I'll blog that recipe later. 
Now for the review on Country Crock butter. I think it's actually margarine but it works the same, I think. 
It's really smooth and spreads very easily. It's not my normal brand but it works in a pinch. (We're a Land o Lakes family.) It tastes fine and like butter. (I didn't do my homework, but I'm pretty sure it is a margarine and not an actual butter.)  My cookies tasted just like they would if I had used real butter so I really can't complain about the taste. 
I'd be willing to try Country Crock again and I'm glad Influenster chose me to taste this product. 
I received this product free for testing purposes. 
Until next time.
