Sally Hansen #CSMTKO

My Thoughts:

I received the #CSMTKO voxbox from Influenster.  It was a wonderful voxbox that contained three full sized nail polishes from Sally Hansen's Total Knock Out collection, in three different colors.  It is a one-in-all nail polish.  

The three colors I got were:

- Red My Lips
- Jaded
- Pat on the Black

According to Sally Hansen, there are 7 benefits in one bottle:  “base coat, strengthener, growth treatment, color, top coat, chip resistant, gel shine finish.”

For this review, I am trying the nail polish, in the shade "Jaded."

The color is that of a minty green.  The color is very pretty, I applied two coats for an opaque look, but with one more coat it would have been a solid mint green.  I was very impressed, because the nail polished dried quickly, so I was able to finish my manicure faster than I usually do.  Then, a couple of days later, the color was still there, just as the first day.  After a a week, the color was a little chipped, so I just applied a new coat and it was good as new!
Conclusion:  Very good nail polish, drys quickly, lasts forever, beautiful shades.  Will definitely recommend and buy again.

U by Kotex Sample Review

Thanks to Crowdtap, I was able to try some of the U by Kotex products. I received:

- A beautiful zipper tin container
- Two U by Kotex liner
- Two U by Kotex sleek tampons with instructions included
- Generation Know bracelet
- Info card (not pictured)

There was an extra to share, which I gave to my sister-in-law to try out. 

My Thoughts:

The tin container is so cute and convenient.  It can be used to conspicuously carry all your Kotex feminine products, or if you'd like, makeup, money or whatever. I've loved Kotex since I first started needing feminine products.  U by Kotex products are fun, girly, and most importantly, keeps you safe and comfy during that time of the month! The tampons are more for a lighter flow. The packaging is cute and convenient.  The are sleek, and they come with a rubbery holder at the base of the applicator for a safe, secure insertion.  The liners are great as a compliment for wearing along with the tampon.  The liners also come individually packaged and are so thin, you don't even feel it.  And lastly, the Generation Know bracelet, which is a bracelet that represents "the first generation of girls to get the facts about their bodies and share that knowledge to create social change" as per card insert in the bracelet.  Very cute string bracelet with green, pink, yellow and black strings and a cute charm that reads 'I know'.  U by Kotex always has been and will continue to be a favorite of mine.
