Influenster #ModaVoxBox Reviews — Part 1

Date Wed, November 26 2014

Resource Spring Water

When I first opened my #ModavoxBox and saw a bottle of water, I was like “Whaaat?” It’s water. How do I review that? I opted to simply enjoy the water plain on a day when I was thirsty. It probably replaced a soda or glass of tap water. It wasn’t a particularly active day, but hydrating is important every day. As someone who experiences dry skin when the weather turns cool and the air dries up, it’s important for me to drink plenty of water in addition to moisturizing my skin.

So what did I think of this water? Actually, it tasted really good. It was certainly better than my tap water, and I preferred it better than some bottled water. I liked that I didn’t just taste the chemicals of the plastic, which happens frequently. I would definitely reach for a bottle of Resource over other brands, like Aquafina, for example. I wonder if this is because I enjoy spring water in particular. The water that I tend to like typically comes from springs.

If you want to learn more about Resource, check out their page on Influenster.

Puffs Softpack

Puffs Softpack

Puffs SoftPack

A weird thing happened to me a while back when I had the chance to try a Kleenex product: I felt as through I was a traitor. You see, my family has this weird thing with tissues. We only buy puffs. My mom is damned near rabid about it! LOL She prefers the kind with lotions; although, I like basic Puffs without lotion.

So when I got a chance to try out the new Puffs Softpack from Influenster, I was stoked. The shipment also happened to be quite timely as I’ve been sloooowly developing a cold. That’s not so fortunate, but having tissues on hand definitely is!

With the SoftPack, Puffs has redesigned the package. Mine came with basic tissues that I know and love, but the cardboard box has been replaced with a soft plastic “box.” The tissues still dispense, but there’s no cardboard piece to rip off and toss. The Softpack is great for snuggling up to, stuffing in a backpack or keeping on the nightstand. As you use tissues, the box can shrink, which means it will fit in enough more spaces. You can’t reload the pack, but you only have a piece of plastic to toss when you’re done with it.

Softpacks are available in multiple prints just like the boxes, and I’ve already seen them at Walmart. You can also buy them on Amazon.

Jergens Ultra Healing

Jergens Ultra Healing

Jergens Ultra Healing

Thanks to being a reviewer, I almost never need to buy new lotion. I just never seem to run out. I’ve had one bottle that was purchased as a gift in my bathroom for years. So I wouldn’t have purchased Jergens’ new Ultra Healing lotion myself, but I’m glad I’ve had a chance to try it out.

I’ve long been a fan of that cherry/almond scent that belongs to JErgens lotion. Not everyone likes it, though. This new lotion doesn’t smell like that, though. It’s more of a generic lotion smell. I don’t find it offensive, but some people would find it strong.

What I do like — and why I’d recommend this product to someone else — is how well it moisturizes. This lotion is heavier than other Jergens products. Some might call it greasy, but I like it. It makes my skin feel silky smooth, which it really needs in the dry winter air. The feeling lasts through washing my hands, and I can definitely tell if I haven’t used it for over a day. I will keep using it until my sample runs out.

Jergens Ultra Healing is readily available from a number of big-box and pharmacy stores and from Amazon online.

Swiss Miss Simply Cocoa 

The last product in part one of this roundup for the #ModaVoxBox is for Swiss Miss Simply Cocoa. This new formula has just five ingredients and is available in both milk and dark chocolate. I was excited to try it because I love hot chocolate. As it turns out, I’m not a big fan of the dark chocolate, however. It was too bland, and I normally really like dark chocolate, so I think most people would want to opt for the milk chocolate.

What are your favorite items from the #ModaVoxBox?

I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes.

Holiday 2014 Gift Guide: Cogito Watches

Date Wed, November 26 2014

This is a sponsored program with Mums the Word Blogger Network and Cogito. All opinions are my own.

It sees like big ticket items  this holiday season are techy, which is great for someone like me. I love tech as much as the next person — no, more than the next person — which you’ve seen if you’ve read some of my reviews here. Wearable tech is something that’s gotten a lot of buzz, too. What is wearable tech? In short, it’s anything that’s worn on your body, including smart watches, fitness devices and glasses. I personally think it’s the first step to tech embedded within our bodies, but we’re not to that point yet!

Smart watches are dominating the market, with pretty much every major phone makers offering their own. There’s at leas a dozen third-party companies with their own watches. One such company is ConnecteDevice, whose smart watch COGITO stands out from the rest for me because it looks more like a standard watch than a tiny phone screen.

Cogito watches with silicone bands

Cogito watches with silicone bands

COGITO Classic is available with four band types: leather, metal, silicone and silicone+nylon. The latter is really cool and sporty looking, while leather and metal bands might be up your alley if you like traditional watches. However, it’s not just about the look of this watch. It can do a lot more than tell time!

Among its abilities is the option to track all of your incoming messages, emails, Skype messages and more. On-screen caller ID alerts you when you have or miss a call, and it connects with the calendar on your smartphone to make sure you don’t miss any appointments.

One of the things I love about COGITO Classic is that it can remotely control your phone to take a photo or enjoy music. This is great to make sure you get in on all those holiday group shots instead of being stuck behind the camera!

A few additional features that might encourage you to add this to your holiday shopping list: it’s water-resistant up to 10 meters and it comes with a traditional battery than can last up to a year. I know the idea of charging yet another device isn’t super appealing, so I love this!

COGITO watches work with iPhones, iPads and any Android devices running 4.3 or higher, so you don’t have to worry about what kind of phone your recipient has.

Cogito watches make great gifts!

Mary J Blige “The London Sessions”

Date Mon, November 24 2014

I wouldn’t be entirely honest if I said that I was the biggest fan of Mary J Blige before participating in this review thanks to One2One Network. However, I can definitely say that I am a bigger fan after getting the chance to listen to “The London Sessions.”

You might known R&B performer Blige, who has been making music for over twenty years, for songs such a “Real Love,” “Not Gon’ Cry” and “You Remind Me.” Blig has been known for her soulful and genuine sound.

The “The London Sessions,” Mary J headed to London, which isn’t exactly known for its R&B sound — at least, not to Americans. Blige wanted to work with different talent, including names such as Sam Smith & Emeli Sandé, to get a fresh perspective for this album, and I think it worked! This is also Blige’s first album on Capitol records.

The 12-track album is every bit as soulful and genuine as you’d expect from her, and there are a few poppier, party mixes thrown in, too.

The tracklist is as follows:

1. Therapy
2. Doubt
3. Not Loving You
4. When You’re Gone
5. Right Now
6. My Loving
7.Long Hard Look
8. Whole Damn Year
9. Nobody But You
10. Pick Me Up
11. Follow
12. Worth My Time

You may have heard a few of the singles that have already been released to Mary J Blige’s YouTube channel, including “Therapy” (below), “Right Now” and “Whole Damn Year.” “Therapy” is the song that seems to have gotten the most airplay; although, I haven’t heard any of these new songs on my local radio station.

“Right Now” is one of the peppier songs. I enjoy it, but I don’t love it the way that I like “Whole Damn Year” or even “Not Loving You.” I think this is because all of those songs are still a little slower. Several times during my listen-throughs, I thought to myself that I would really enjoy some songs if they were remixed and faster. “Nobody But You” is an example of that, but it grows on me every time I listen to it.

The slower and more honest songs stand on their own, however. In fact, “Whole Damn Year” is actually the song that encouraged me to sign up for this review opp. I heard it a few weeks back and loved the sound and lyrics. It talks about Mary J taking a year to recuperate. It is one of several songs that have a theme of growth and recovery on “The London Sessions.” Mary J Blige has been known for her struggled with drugs, and I’ve no doubt she is talking about recovering from addicting in some songs.

In others, like “Not Loving You,” she’s clearly talking to a previous or potential lover. Those songs especially sing to me as I’m in the midst of a heartbreak. The lyrics of not loving you talk about how Mary can’t “love you when you’re not loving you.” Boy, have I been there! Blige has writing credits on every song except for “Nothing Loving You,” which was co-written by Sam Smith and James Napier. This song seems well-picked to go with the rest of the album, however.

I also rather enjoyed “Doubt,” “Nobody but You” and “Worth My Time.”

“The London Sessions” is timely in my own life, and I hope that Mary J Blige experienced as much catharsis writing and recording it as I did listening it. There are definitely some songs that will get replayed on my iPod, but not all of them resonated with me.

“The London Sessions” will be available in just a few days on December 2. You’ll be able to buy it on iTunes and Amazon in physical format and digital download.

Thanks to One2One Network for the opportunity to review this album. All opinions are mine.
