Changing it up!

It's been a long while since I've been on here. Life kind of catches up with you and before you know it, a whole year has just flown by. I am going to try to keep up with this blog a little more.

I am trying something a little new today and writing about something other than every day life.

This year I have REALLY gotten into makeup. Yes, I am almost 30 years old and finally understanding the true concept of makeup and the true art form it is.

Along with LOVING makeup, I also LOVE saving money/getting things for free. A few months ago I signed up for this company called Influenster (online). They send you free products to try. All you have to do is try them out and then give your honest feedback on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, your blog, YouTube, Vine, and/or whatever other online social media site you may be a member of. I don't do much on YouTube as far as posting and I don't have a Vine account so I thought I'd use this blog to write about the products I have reviewed and how I feel about the item(s). And by the way, all these items in each VoxBox (this one is the SunVoxBox/SunkissedVoxBox are free! I received them as a complimentary gift. I did not pay them for it and I am not getting paid to do this review or any other review!

This blog is going to be about the Olay Fresh Effects collection, specifically the Fresh Effects BB cream (in fair to light).

The first day I got my VoxBox, I right away opened up the Olay Fresh Effects BB cream. I was so excited!!! The tube is a very convenient size. I have a few other BB creams and their packaging is kind of lumpy and not very "throw in your purse and go" size. The design on the packaging kind of goes along with the name. It's a very fresh design. White with light green and yellow colors. Very pretty. Now onto the color. OMG! SOOOOO pretty!!! I am in love with the smell. Very fresh and sweet. But not overpowering. It has 15 SPF in it but smells nothing like sunscreen! Phew, because who wants to smell that all day on their face?? Olay Fresh Effects {BB Cream!} offers six skincare benefits in one step The consistency is thick but not like a paste. It was a light foundation color but once I out it onto my face, it just blended so well into my skin. I can wear a light to medium coverage in foundation so I was a little worried this would be too light for my face. Not the case at all! The coverage is nice. It's just enough. I can still see my freckles, which is always a plus for me. I am not trying to hide those precious beauties. It did cover up the redness from some of my "it's about that time of the month" pimples. If I was going to wear this for a night out (which I plan to soon), I would still have to wear my undereye concealer  because it didn't cover up my dark undereye circles. I decided to put the BB cream on my face the day I was going to the gym. That would be the true test. 60 minutes of cardio, sweating like a pig, would be the true test to see if it would run off my face (no pun intended). Nope! After all that hard work, the BB cream was still on my face, with no sweat lines! Yay! There was a little on the towel when I dried my face from sweat but that's to be expected. I want it to come off when I wash my face, right? I am not looking for a face dye :-)

I just got this product last weekend and since I am a stay at home Mom, I don't get to wear makeup often and haven't been able to really try it out. But, this is going to be my go-to BB cream for the summer. It's wonderful. I am glad I got to try this wonderful product. Thank you Influenster! Head over to Olay on FB,,, and Influenster on FB! Check out all these sites have to offer! Also check out to buy from there! :-) Hurray for #nofilter kind of days!
