My all time favourite LUSH product is Angels Delight, a bright pink holiday seasonal soap with blocks of  blue and yellow that smells like fruity heaven (it reminds me of mango and citrus).

My Sephora VIB Fall 2016 Sale Haul

A couple months ago, I signed up for Influenster, a site where “social savvy shoppers” can stay on top of the latest product news, review products, and receive free products (“VoxBox”) based on their social media presence.

Last month, I received my second complimentary VoxBox – the L’Oréal Revitalift Bright Reveal VoxBox.  It contained a Daily Scrub Cleanser, Reveal Peel Pads, Overnight Moisturizer, and SPF 30 Moisturizer.
