I recently received the Influenster GlamBox to test and review, and I am so excited to share with you my results! I tried and tested all of the products recently and read below to see what I thought. If you guys have tried these products, let me know what you think!

Not Your Mother's Dry Shampoo - This doesn't come out white, so I didn't think it was working at first, so I sprayed more and more. I guess it just isn't white! I had to test it again because I basically ruined my hair by spraying so much. It definitely did the job though! My took care of the excess oil in my hair and left it feeling completely normal - no stickiness or stiffness. While it is a good dry shampoo, it's not my favorite.
Cutex Advanced Revival Nail Polish Remover Pads - The pads come soaked in the nail polish remover and come individually packaged in a foil packet, which is nice. It's a large enough pad to sufficiently wipe down all 10 nails, and there's plenty of nail polish remover. Right now using a cotton ball, I have to go through 2-3 soaked cotton balls to get off all the nail polish. With this I only needed 1, which is nice. I really liked them, but I hardly ever paint my nails that I feel they might dry out or I wouldn't get my money's worth if I bought them. I would recommend them, but I probably won't re-buy them.
Gillette Venus Swirl Razor - This razor has 5 blades, large moisture pads around the blades (what are those things called?), and a roller ball to help get around those hard-to-reach areas. The first time I used it I had to check that it was even working because it was so smooth and glided so well across my skin. The roller ball helps when you're shaving around the knee, ankles, or bikini area and the 5 blades are great so you don't have to repeat areas. I especially like this for the bikini area as with just one swipe I was done. That leads to less irritation and overall a better experience. I will definitely be buying this again.
Gillette Venus Olay Violet Swirl Shaving Gel - As stated, this is a gel and not a cream. It still lathers just like shaving cream but I felt it was thicker and stayed on better. You know how sometimes shaving cream will start to drip down your legs? This didn't do that. I was very impressed. This is something I would buy again!
Q-Tips Cotton Swabs - I've used Q-Tips for so long, so it wasn't something new to try, but I liked the To-Go pack it came in. My favorite thing to use Q-Tips for is (obviously) clearing out ears, but it also works really well to clean up makeup if I get mascara over my eyeshadow, or cleaning up after I butcher giving myself a manicure. I will definitely buy these again.
SheaMoisture Raw Shea Butter Facial Wash and Scrub, Anti-Aging Moisturizer, and Anti-Aging Facial Mask - I received 3 products from SheaMoisture to test. The Facial Wash and Scrub has jojoba beads in it to help with exfoliation which I loved. It was gentle on my skin and it felt very clean afterwards. The Anti-Aging Moisturizer was okay. It moisturized well, but took a while to fully sink in so my skin was sticky for a while after. It wasn't greasy or make me break out, though, which a lot of moisturizers do for my oily combination skin. The Anti-Again Facial Mask was creamy like a lotion, but you leave it on like a mask. It messed with my mind a bit when I was putting it on. It wasn't a bad mask, but it wasn't my favorite. Over time it might work better, but I wasn't blown away. I would only buy the Facial Wash and Scrub again.
