Broadway Nails imPRESS Press-on Manicure

Read Article →

I recently received another complimentary Voxbox to review from Influenster and this time it included 2 packs of imPress Press-On Manicure Nails.


The good:


  • I love love love the packaging! I love how they're stored in a nail polish shaped case so it fits right in with all my others polishes on my nail polish rack.
  • Super easy to use and convenient. Great for last minute manicures - no drying, no glue - just press on and out you the door you go.
  • Many colours and designs to choose from. I am not particularly fond of the ones I received (I especially dislike the pink patterned one....) but I know these do come in really pretty colours and designs.

The bad:


  • You can tell they're fake. Your friends may not notice if they're not examining your nails but you can definitely tell if you look closely. The adhesive on the nails is quite thick and that creates a gap between your real nails and the fake ones. You can also see the edges of your real nails underneath (it is especially obvious on me because I have very curved nails).

Final verdict: 

These are great for last minute manicures but if I had the time I would much rather use real nail polish as I dislike the thickness it adds to my nails.

Garnier Fructis Damage Eraser Influenster Voxbox Review

Read Article →

Two weeks ago I received a mystery Influenster Voxbox which included 3 unbranded hair care products - a small bottle of shampoo, conditioner, and split-end serum. I love the concept of blinding the products because this allows for completely unbiased judgement. 

I've dyed my hair more times than I can remember which has lead to my extremely dry and damaged hair. I honestly didn't have high hopes for these products (or any product in existence) to do much damage control to my split ends but I was pleasantly proven wrong! The shampoo and conditioner was thick and buttery which I liked but what I enjoyed most was the split-end serum. It made a dramatic instantly visible difference to my split ends! I don't know how much, if any, mending it actually does but visually, my hair actually looked healthy! 

A week after using the blinded products everyday, Influenster sent me another Voxbox with the full size branded products:


I couldn't believe it! It was a drugstore brand that has been doing miracles to my hair! I've used Garnier Fructis shampoos and conditions in the past but nothing has ever compared to this - their Damage Eraser line. After using this line for two weeks now, I am still uncertain whether my split ends have mended (and as I didn't expect much from these products, I regrettably did not take any 'before' photos of my hair), but visually the difference is dramatic! My hair is noticeably shinier and silkier than ever before!

I would definitely recommend the Garnier Fructis Damage Eraser line to anyone who has coarse and damaged hair like I have, and for drugstore prices, there's really nothing to lose!
