I started using Derma-King a week ago. What's cool about this skin care line is my cousin started it in memory of his mother, my aunt, who passed away from brain cancer last year. I lived with her during my sophomore and junior college years. She was the older sister I never had.Read More
When my first Influenster VoxBox came in the mail, I was so excited! I don't receive BirchBox or any services like that so it was my first experience getting goodies in the mail.
I love trying out new products, especially anything skin care related as I'm obsessed with making sure my skin ages beautifully.
Below are my reviews of all the products that I received in the Ole Henriksen VoxBox. The theme was about showing off your #OleGlow from the vitamin C products.
Let me know if you would try these products in the comment section at the bottom of the page.
OLE HENRIKSEN SHEER TRANSFORMATION
An oil-free perfecting crème repairs skin with vitamin C complex, licorice root and pea extract. It helps gradually reduce hyperpigmentation without chemicals and fights off skin-damaging free radicals from the environment.
I like how the crème was completely sealed underneath the lid. The sample is a very generous portion being equal to the size of a normal eye crème.
The Sheer Transformation Crème is almost scentless. The size of a pea covers the entire face. You only need a little extra to cover the neck. It feels super light as it melts into the skin when applied. It also absorbs very quickly leaving no residue.
Within five minutes of application, I could see my skin tones starting to even out in comparison to a photo I took before applying the crème.
Packaging could be eco-friendlier by removing plastic insert and making the box smaller.
Ole Henriksen Truth Serum Collagen Booster
The first time I tried this product, I was impressed. Never hearing of the brand before, it definitely delivered results.
Instead of applying it to my entire face, neck and décolleté as the directions stated, I applied it under my eyes because I felt like I looked really exhausted that day.
What a difference it made! My dark circles were much lighter and the creases under my eyes were not as deep.
Once I had my full makeup on, I looked like I had just returned from a spa retreat. My skin was glowing and looked plump (in a good way) because it was hydrated.
Ole Henriksen POWER Bright
I really enjoyed how this product is multifaceted. It makes you feel like you are really taking the time to improve the appearance of your skin by exfoliating and drenching it with vitamin C.
Step 1: Sugar Polish
It smells really wonderful like oranges. I love how it’s composed of brown sugar too, not just white.
Step 2: Mask
The consistency of the mask is thick and applies very easily. Plenty of product to cover face and neck. I started to feel tingling once applied. It was very mild and dissipated as time went on.
Step 3: Cleanser
It mixes seamless with the mask. The color of the cleanser is vibrant with minimal tingling.
Overall, this product is great if you can dedicate 30 to 45 minutes to the process. It would be super fun to do with your girlfriends while you’re on a Netflix binge.
I continue to use the Sheer Transformation Crème and Truth Serum Vitamin C Collagen Boost regularly and always together before I apply my moisturizer. It's best after spending a day in the sun or mornings when my skin needs an extra pick-me-up.
NYE is the perfect time to embrace the uber glamorous makeup of your dreams. Nothing is too extravagant when celebrating a night centered around champagne.
What's more glam than Gatsby? In the Baz Luhrmann's remake, Leo gave you all the feels while you wanted to raid everything in Daisy's closet. The 20s have made a resurgence and for good reason. The decade's dark eyeshadow hues have definitely influenced our love for the smokey eye today.
The depth and richness of bronze is unmatched during the winter months when skin is longing for a sun-kissed glow. This sultry shade can be used all over the face and is universally flattering as an eyeshadow.
Gold eyeshadow & Red Lips
You can never go wrong with glitter eyeshadow and a bold lip. Gold hues are complimentary with any eye color. If you never wear red lipstick, NYE is definitely the night to give it your best shot. Allot yourself enough time to apply it perfectly.
Neutrals & fash lashes
Long lashes, bold brows and nude lips are what dreams are made of. This combination looks effortless but requires attention to detail. It's all about choosing neutrals according to your skin undertone.
Cool undertones, stick to pinks and grays.
Neutral undertones, you can rock any color on the black, brown, beige or white spectrum.
Warm undertones, brown eye makeup looks better than black. Gold and bronze looks amazing too.
Silver smokey eye
Want your eyes to shine bright like a diamond all night long? Look no further than the smokey eye staple with a twist. Silver lids make the eyes sparkle while black liner and fake lashes add just enough polish to complete a chic outfit.
This look works great if you're wearing all white or black.
I hope these makeup tutorials help you look your best at 2015's last party. Please share any additional tutorials or tips you like for NYE.
