I received these free products as part of the T.L.C. VoxBox program through Influenster. Opinions expressed in this post are that of my own.

Influenster TLC Vox Box

Thanks to Influenster, I was sent a T.L.C. VoxBox with all sorts of MOM goodies to check out and to also give myself a little pampering.

Ivory Soap

I received Ivory Soap, which I already knew was great for bath time, but I also learned that is has many other uses.

Check out my #Sudlife Pinterest Board for additional ideas.

Puffs Tissue

The timing could not have been more perfect for the Puffs Plus Lotion Tissues.

Allergy season was hitting me hard and these fit perfectly in my purse. Needless to say I went through them rather quickly.

Breyers Gelato

To make myself feel better, I treated myself to Breyers Gelato Indulgences.

The Vanilla Caramel flavor was rich and tasted amazing.  I even managed to share a little with hubby.

Neosporin Collage

I didn’t personally use the “Neo To Go“, but it sure did come in handy for both my older kids.

As you can see by the photo, it didn’t burn by my daughter’s thumbs up!

Fuel Rewards Network

I also received an application to apply for a Fuel Rewards Network card, however I happen to already be a member.  So far my top reward has been saving .25 cents per gallon at Shell!

Visit my post on the ways you can save money on gas through this program, Save Money on Gas and Enter a $25 Shell Gift Card GIVEAWAY! #FuelRewardsNetwork.

ANEW Reversalist Complete Renewal Express Wrinkle Smoother

There was also a package containing ANEW Reversalist Complete Renewal Express Wrinkle Smoother.  It did not do much for my expression lines, but temporarily helped with the lines around my eyes when applied under make up.

I suggest checking out the other reviews at Avon to see what others thought of it.  In addition if you use the code ANEW15 you can save 15% off your $50 ANEW Skincare order.

Have you tried any of these products before? Which is your favorite?

As you can tell this was a really fun box to explore and test out.  I can’t wait to see what is available in the next Influenster VoxBox!

I received these free products as part of an Influenster Optic White VoxBox. Opinions expressed in this post are that of my own.

Review of Colgate Optic White

Thanks to Colgate and Influenster, I was given an Optic White Whitening Kit to review here on Frugal and Fun Mom.

Colgate Optic White is a whitening system that includes a Toothbrush with a Built-In Whitening Pen. This pen fits into the bottom of the toothbrush when it is not in use.

Review of Colgate Optic White

To use this product simply brush your teeth with the included specially designed toothbrush, and use your regular toothpaste.

When you are finished brushing, apply the whitening gel to your teeth with 2 clicks for the top and 2 clicks for the bottom.  No waiting or rinsing is required for the gel. Use as directed on the box.

Review of Colgate Optic White

I have been using this system for 2 weeks now, and it is really easy to apply.  I applied it twice a day for the first 2 days and once or twice there after. 

It doesn’t take much more time than usual brushing, which is great for this busy Mom of 3. Plus, I like how it has the built in storage making the pen easier to find, and I don’t have to find an extra place to keep it.

Before and After Whitening Colgate Optic White Review of Colgate Optic White

Pictured above is the before and after of me using Colgate Optic White for a week and a half . The results are subtle but yellowing has definitely been reduced. My teeth look natural, which is what I want. 

I already use a whitening toothpaste, however since I am a coffee drinker I get stains between my front teeth and on one of my side bottom teeth.  Those spots have lightened up since I started using this system.

Do you use a whitening product on your teeth?  Have you tried the Colgate Optic White, and if so what do you like about it?

Olay CC Cream


Wanting to simplify the way you fight the 7 signs of aging?  Well there is a NEW product called Olay CC Creamthat gives the benefits of Anti-Aging plus a Beauty Balm, to create Color and Correction for a youthful look.

This product covers the ABC’s of beauty because it is the AA + BB = CC.

Olay CC Cream also known as Total Effects Tone Correcting Moisturizer with Sunscreen combines a daily anti-aging moisturizer, SPF 15 sunscreen and sheer tint for younger-looking skin. The Olay Total Effects fights the 7 signs of aging by reducing the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and age spots. It also helps to even out tone and provides nourishing moisture while creating a barrier to keep it locked in. Plus, it exfoliates and recaptures a youthful luminosity.

This product should be applied 15 minutes before sun exposure and reapplied every 2 hours. Refer to the packaging for other helpful anti-aging tips and additional directions.

Olay CC Cream Details


Thanks to Olay, I was sent the fair to light CC Cream to try.  I used it in lieu of powder, and applied after I cleaned my face. As you can tell by the picture below, it looks as though I have on regular base. I just added a little blush, mascara, and some silvery eye shadow. This picture was taken about an hour after application.


Olay Total Effect Tinted CC Cream

A good friend of mine told me that she really liked how the product looked on my skin and thought that I was wearing some type of powder or base. I think that my skin looks refreshed and I can tell a difference in the tone. This would be a great product to keep handy at the beach.

This product is available for purchase at Walmart Stores and online at Walmart.com.

For information on Olay’s CC Cream and other products made by Olay visit Olay.com. Also, check them out on Facebook at facebook.com/olay and Twitter at @OlayUS.
