Today I’m going to show you a haul that is based on items that I have received either for free, for very cheap or through some sort of a subscription system. I’m also going to share a few tips on how to get things for free or cheap. This will be a series, so stay tuned for more!
Revlon Nutrifusion 2-in-1 Conditioning Styler
This is the Revlon Nutrifusion 2-in-1 Conditioning Styler. It’s a flat iron that you can use to curl your hair. I bought a Revlon flat iron in a gift set, but it didn’t work. I couldn’t find the receipt to take it back so I emailed the supplier and they offered to send me one for free to replace it.
Kindred Quick Tip: If it breaks or doesn’t work, & you can’t take it back, contact the brand directly for a replacement.
The next set of things that I got were from Influenster. Now I’m not sure if any of you have Influenster subscriptions or if you’re on Influenster. My package is a little torn up. I didn’t want to share my address. If you go to Influenster.com you leave reviews for products that you like or products even that you don’t like. And I will do a video with more details on how you can get things for free with Influenster.
Kindred Quick Tip: If you are willing to review the products, you can get things for free from Influenster.com.
This is the Influenster Frosty Vox Box. I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes.
Red Vines Fruit Vines Bites
Red Vines Fruit Vines Bites are a licorice type candy similar to Twizzlers in texture. They tasted delicious, but they include artificial coloring so I probably won’t purchase them. This Forbes article and this article by Dr. Mercola recently explained the dangers of artificial colors including potentially causing ADHD and cancer so I’m going to try to avoid items that include that in the future.
No 7 Protect and Perfect Advanced Serum
The packaging says it is “clinically proven to be even more effective at visibly reducing fine lines, younger-looking, more radiant skin in just 2 weeks.” However, the sample was only enough for maybe 2 days worth. It is impossible to review a product sample that is so tiny. The full-size bottle is about $23. It also came with a $2 off coupon from Target that expires in March. I won’t be purchasing it.
Kindred Quick Tip: If you’re unsure of a product, try to find larger travel sizes or get several small samples to test before purchasing a full-size bottle.
Celestial Seasonings Candy Cane Lane Decaf Green Tea
I tested this tea last month and posted a review here.
Kindred Quick Tip: Check online reviews before forking out the cash to purchase a product you’ve never used before.
This also came with a 55 cent coupon.
Kindred Quick Tip: Check your grocery store coupon policy. Some stores double coupons up to $0.50 or $0.99!
Expert Last Lip Color by NYC
I like the color. It looks like a nice neutral color – great for the winter time. I’m interested in seeing what the texture and staying power are like.
McCormick All Natural Thyme
Everybody needs more thyme. Ba dum ching! Cheesy jokes aside, I’ve already made soup with this and it tastes great!
Rimmel Gentle Eye Make-up Remover
I’ve tried a lot of make-up removers and I have very sensitive skin especially around my eyes. Almost all of the make-up removers that I’ve tried have stung the skin around my eyes. So I’m very interested to see how well this one works.
Eco Tools Hair Brush
I’ve used Eco Tools make-up brushes. I love that their packaging is 80% recycled and 100% recyclable paper. The makeup brushes that I purchased previously are synthetic and animal friendly which is great (and guilt-free too).
Scandaleyes Waterproof Rimmel Eyeliner
This is the last item that I got in my Vox Box. I tested this out on my hand and I will tell you that it stays! It looks like it is a great waterproof eyeliner. I am looking forward to trying this out on my eyes next.
