The Benefits in Signing Up for Influenster

I tried to title this blog with a cute play on words as I just received the Benefits Benefaves VoxBox from Influenster…absolutely free! First of all, if you don’t have Influenster, you HAVE to sign up. You get free products to review and test – and all you have to do is write reviews on the products. There’s really no downside to this deal. If you want to sign up, use my referral link here

Even before I received this VoxBox, I was an avid user of Benefits Cosmetics. My go-to bronze is Benefits’ Hoola Bronzer. I like that it’s not shimmery and it’s the perfect shade for my skin tone. Thankfully Influenster included the bronzer in the Benefaves VoxBox and helped me stock up! 

More recently I’ve been obsessed with trying to figure out which eyebrow pencil/gel/etc. is right for me. Although I love the formula and packaging for the Ka-Brow! Eyebrow Gel, I like the Benefits’ Goof Proof best. It takes less time and it’s almost impossible to mess-up, especially on those mornings where I’m in a rush.

As someone with short eyelashes, I was happy to have the chance to test the Benefits’ they’re Real! mascara. After curling my eyelashes, I definitely notice a difference in length. What I like best about the mascara is definitely the brush, and the ability to use it vertically and horizontally.

However, my absolute favourite item in the VoxBox is definitely PoreFessional. If there’s one makeup item I use on a daily basis it’s definitely this Benefits’ Primer. The shade is perfect for my skin tone and definitely helps cover up my pores – I even got my mom using it! 

Overall, this Benefits VoxBox was the ABSOLUTE BEST VoxBox to receive for free. It was great to get extras of my favourites as well as try products from the brand that I was hesitant to purchase myself.

Don’t forget to sign up for Influenster using my referral code. Why would you say no to free makeup? 

Thanks Influenster!

Giving Back

Let’s face it, our world is fucked up right now. In the wake of the multiple bombings and attacks in the past 7 days alone, I’ve been pretty down about humanity and decided to try and help out the only way I know how right now. As a volunteer for War Child I fully support and believe in its efforts to help children in war-affected countries. I also have a bag of clothes (and random things) I was planning on donating to Value Village (and I’ll probably add more this summer…). See where I’m going with this?

Interested in something? Message me and let me know what you want! There are no prices, please donate what you would like! All of the money will be going to War Child directly. If you would like to donate to War Child but aren’t interested in any item, feel free to let me know and I can add it to my pool, or you can donate here.

The world sucks right now, I’m just trying to make it suck a little less.

Childhood is a pivotal time in our lives. But it is also fragile, and can be easily corrupted by the effects of war. By providing access to education, opportunity and justice, War Child gives children in war-affected communities the chance to reclaim their childhood and break the cycle of poverty and violence.

Not the best of the series, but a nice, easy read. Jen’s book because why do we both need a copy…

Honestly I haven’t read this and Jen was done with it. The book jacket had a stain on it so she threw it out.
