How to You #PlayOn?

What does the phrase "Play On" mean to you? It can mean a lot of things, from getting things done no matter what you face, to facing your fears head on so that something great can happen. To play on, you need strength, confidence and the feeling of security. Just like the feelings you get when you know you have great period protection.

Playtex® Sport® Fresh Balance™ is the product that women everywhere can use to play on. These tampons provide the protection you need to have no matter how hectic your day or hard your workout may be. They are comfortable, absorbent, and protect you from leaks. With its Odor Shield technology, it also helps you feel fresh so you can stay at your best.

So if you want to play on, makes sure to keep a stash of Playtex® Sport® Fresh Balance™ in your purse and your gym bag.

#VitaVoxBox: The Review

Vitality. What does that word mean to you? It's a spark, a vigor--something that makes you, you. This Influenster VoxBox is all about vitality--living a fun, active life without worrying about the little setbacks. Here's what I received in the box:

I received these products free from Influenster for testing purposes.

First Degree Advanced Burn Cream

This burn cream is handy to have around when those minor burns from curling irons, cooking or other incidents happen. So far, I've been lucky enough to not need it yet, but I will tell you that the cream is good and doesn't have an overwhelming medicinal smell like some other first aid products in this category.

Playtex Sport Fresh Balance

I have received this product in a previous VoxBox. My opinions haven't changed since then, so here is my thoughts on Playtex Sport Fresh Balance from the #GoVoxBox.

 Elizabeth Arden Flawless Future Powered by Ceramide Caplet Serum

This product is not quite my thing. First of all, I'm 30 and don't have wrinkles. That's mainly due to the fact that I don't laugh and smile as often as I should, but that's a story for another day. It went on smooth and dried fast, but didn't change the way my skin felt overall (that I noticed). The product is a premium product, and those who are looking for top-of-the-line skincare products for a flawless future, this is for you. It just wasn't for me.

Pure Leaf Iced Tea

I've already posted a review about this product which you can read HERE.

 Softlips Cube

I cannot tell you enough about how great this lip balm is. If you follow me on Twitter or Instagram, then you know I've been raving about this product for the past week. It is one of the best lip products I have used. I don't know if it is just the mint flavor (I'm eager to try the other two flavors) or if it is how cute the cube looks, but it is a quality product. I can't get enough of it!

Bikini Ready Energy Gummies

These little gummies pack a punch. Here's my post on how they fit into my #BikiniReadyLifestyle.

Overall, this was an awesome box. I am so thankful that Influenster has given me the ability to test and discover new products. I can't wait for my next box!

What's the Secret to Your #BikiniReadyLifestyle?

Even though the summer is almost over, you still want to look your best for those final few dips in the pool before you head back to school or work. Getting bikini ready is not just a task for the spring, but it is also a lifestyle change. So what's your secret for getting (and staying!) bikini ready? Mine is energy.

We all need a little energy to do the things we want to do and have to do. If we don't have enough energy, we can all easily slip back into those bad habits that are also bad for our bodies. You know, the I'm-tired-so-let's-pig-out-on-ice-cream-and-binge-watch-TV-shows kind of bad habits. How do you find the energy to get things done at work, clean the house, work out and still have fun? I do it with Bikini Ready Gummies.

I received a sample package of Bikini Ready Energy Gummies free from Influenster for testing purposes.

These little gummies pack a lot of energy, and you don't need to chug a ton of sugary frappuccinos each morning to get the same effect. Just two gummies per day will give you the energy you need to get it all done. The gummies contain ingredients such as vitamin B12 and caffeine to give you a boost that both promotes energy and boosts your metabolism. I've added these little gems to my healthy diet and workout routine so that I know I'll always have energy throughout the day.

Naturally Refreshing: Pure Leaf Tea

I will be up front with you: in my life, tea is saved for special occasions (and when I run out of coffee). It's not that I don't enjoy it. I just have to be in the mood for it. But that's changed. I have finally found a tea that I can enjoy anytime--not just when the mood strikes me.

Received this product free for testing purposes from Influenster.

I had the privilege to try a complimentary bottle of Pure Leaf Unsweetened tea from my Influenster Vitality Vox Box. This is a tea I could see myself drinking on a regular basis because the flavor is good and is exactly what you would expect if you were drinking fresh brewed tea. However, I do prefer sweetened tea, so I will definitely be looking for the other flavors that Pure Leaf has. And since it's made with no preservatives and no added color, I know that I can enjoy this drink without worrying about what I'm putting into my body.

Unveiling the #VitaVoxBox

Here's the video unboxing of the Influenster #VitaVoxBox I received the other day in the mail. It's my first video upload ever on YouTube, so I muted the audio this time. Next time, I'll try out my narration skills. :-)
