Between work and being a full time mommy, I don’t always have the spare time to head to the salon for pampering. Sometimes I prefer to do my own manicure and pedicure at home. I have a vast nail polish collection and enjoy coming up with my own designs. While I am almost a pro at painting my left hand, the right always ends up looking like I did the job with both eyes closed. The Q-tip precision points help me clean up the mess and touch up all of the extra nail polish. The pointed tip does a clean job of removing the excess and leaves my nails looking much nicer. Just another example of how versatile they really are!
Since receiving my Something Blue VoxBox from Influenster, I have been taking the time to test and try each product found inside. You can visit my previous post to see all of the goodies that were packed inside the #IDoVoxBox this month. After a week of using the Luster NOW! whitening toothpaste I have a solid opinion on my experience with the product. Like I mentioned in my first impression review, I love whitening toothpaste. I have been using other brands for years but never found one product that I considered completely effective. While many of them show visible signs of whitening within the first week, I noticed that the results would never last. This was not the case with Luster NOW! and after using it for over a week I continue to see my teeth getting whiter.
This instant whitening toothpaste brightens your teeth with its minty blue formula. Finally, a toothpaste that tastes good! One thing I have HATED about other whitening products is the horrible taste, after taste, and burning sensation. Sometimes toothpastes like this can irritate your gums because of the potency. Fortunately, it is gentle enough to use on your teeth everyday and whitens instantly. If you have blonde or highlighted hair, you may recognize the concept used in brightening shampoos. The vibrant blue color reminds me the Shimmer Lights shampoo and conditioner to keep your highlights bright. This technology has now transferred over to dental hygiene. After over a week my teeth are brighter and much more shiny. I am really looking forward to the long term results of Luster NOW! and the overall improvement it offers.

- Tampax and Always Radiant Collection
- Quaker Soft Baked Bar in Banana Nut Bread
- Sally Hansen Magnetic Nail Color
- Sally Hansen Nails and Cuticles Hand Creme
- Clear Scalpy & Hairy Beauty Therapy ( Shampoo & Conditioner)
While I am excited to try all of these products, the one thing that stuck out to me first was the Sally Hansen Magnetic Nail Color. I have seen this nail polish before in the store but never could bring myself to buy it. Magnetic Nails are HOT right now and all of the popular nail polish brands are dabbing into the trend. Within minutes of painting your nails all you have to do it place the magnet over top to get the 3D nail art that so many are raving about. The color that I was sent to try is “Polar Purple.” Influenster must know that I love purple-y polishes.
On top of the nail polish there are several other products in the box that I am interested in trying- like ALL of them! As always, reviews will be up soon.
