Before you buy something it's always nice to hear how other people liked the product that you were thinking about trying.  When I buy makeup or nail polish, I scour the blogs and youtube world to hear how other people liked the product.  Look no further because I am going to tell you about some products that was sent to me by Influenster.  I signed up for Influenster and unlocked as many badges as I could.  They sent me an email and said that I qualified to receive a Holiday VoxBox filled with products to try and to also review.  So now, I am sharing with you! I will give you my initial thoughts on the following products:

1.) Mentos Pure Fresh gum:
  • This gum lasts a LONG time!!  It is minty at first and then gradually softens the longer you chew.  You can feel your mouth getting cool from the minty flavor.  The pieces are about the size of a nickel and come 15 to a pack.
2.) Montagne Jeunesse Juiced Cucumber Peel off Masque
  • I have not tried this product yet, but I am so excited to!!  I have never tried a peel off masque before.  This masque says to deep clean your pores so with the busy holiday season coming up, it will be a good stress reducer.
  • This company does not test on animals
3.) Softsoap Coconut Scrub bars
  • These bars smell amazing!  I like the fact that there are exfoliants in the bars already.  I like products that can "kill 2 birds with 1 stone" so I don't have to exfoliate and use body wash at the same time!
  • I also like that this came in a 2 pack so I won't have to buy soap for a while!
4.) Broadway imPRESS Press-on manicure
  • I have not tried these yet, but I am going to give them to my mom to try.  She doesn't have very good nails so what a perfect thing to give her.  Plus, she can put them on for Christmas and have nice looking nails!
  • I also love the color name: Ex on the Beach
  • I LOVE the fact that we got a $1.00 off coupon too!
5.) LARABAR in Cashew Cookie
  • Yummy!
  • It's soft not hard like some bars are. 
  • I got a coupon to try the other flavors too!
6.) NYC Liquid Lip Shine in Nude York City
  • LOVE!
  • The applicator is different than any other applicator it's flat.
  • It gives a pretty sheen to your lips. It's not nude  but gives a "your lips only better sheen."
  • Slight vanilla scent
I will come back with the products I didn't try and give everyone an update!  Thanks for reading!

*Disclaimer: These are only my feelings.  Everyone is entitled to their own opinion*

Team. Together.Everyone.Achieves.More.  Isn't this so true?  This one word can apply in the workplace, in the schoolyard, and on the basketball court.  When a group of individuals work as a team, things get done faster, it's more effective, and everyone shares the collective responsibility.  Nothing was more evident on Sunday when the Dallas Mavericks beat the Miami Heat in Game 6 of the NBA Finals.  A basketball team comprised of 12 individals each sharing collective responsibility beat a team comprised of individuals.  For those that watched the game, how many times did you hear the names, LeBron James, Dwayne Wade, and Chris Bosh?  If you are on the same page as I am, a lot! You know what though? There are still 9 other people on that team. MVP Dirk Nowitzki was 9 for 27 in field goal attemps.  Not one of his best shooting nights but, his team helped him out. 

One begins to wonder about the Heat.  Are there too many superstars on that team?  Think about it, LeBron was a superstar in Cleveland, Bosh was a superstar for Toronto, and Wade was already a star in Miami.  All 3 of them were the ones called upon in the final minutes of the game to help lead their team to victory.  Now that they are together, it becomes the James, Wade, Bosh, show.  Perhaps they were a bit selfish.  Besides Nowitzki, who were the superstars on the Mavs?  The Mavericks played as a cohesive unit.  Look what happened, they beat the Superstars and won an NBA Championship.  Together Everyone Achieves More.  Just like the Mavs.
