The one thing about awards shows that really fascinates and intrigues me is the swag bags. I've watched several shows and documentaries (if that's what you want to call them) that give a peek into what celebrities get at these shindigs. Beauty products are plentiful in those swag bags, but some celebs rack up things like impossible-to-find gadgets and luxury trips even! With so many awards shows happening in the same season, it's hard not to wonder what on earth they do with all of the stuff, ya know? (If any celebs are reading this, I'll gladly take some of it off your hands... just sayin') Anyway, I got my hands on Babbleboxx's Star Studded Style Secrets box and I was able to play "Celeb" for a short time. Babbleboxx includes products from five different brands and I thought I'd share a little bit about each one so you can see what some stars get in their goodie bags! Check out the items included below.
LumaRX Full Body Device
The LumaRX Full Body Device is an IPL hair reduction device that gives professional results in the comfort and convenience of your own home. The Full Body Device works on large areas of the body as well as the female face. LumaRX said users experienced up to 94% hair reduction after just 3 treatments. So far I've only completed the first treatment, but it was easy peasy and didn't take too long at all. The booklet that comes with the LumaRX claims large areas, such as an entire leg, could be completed in only 20 minutes. I was able to get my IPL on while catching up on some shows the other night. I'm very very much looking forward to seeing how treatments two and three go. I love that I own the device now so I can treat as needed. This was definitely a super rad thing to receive. I'm going to write a separate post about my first large-area treatment with this because I definitely learned some things and it might help you decide if it's right for you. I promise to follow up again once I've completed at least three treatments - that way you can see the results for yourself! -- If you're keen on snagging one of your own you can use the code "BB75" for $75 off the LumaRX Full Body Device (Only until March 11th though!)
I've started to pay much more mind to my skin care routine in the last several months or so. I'm developing those lovely little fine lines under my lower eyelids and my face sucks up any and all moisture it can. Finding a moisturizer that really delivers is a pretty high priority on my list. The Concentrated Serum is a fast-absorbing, high-potency serum that includes Hyaluronic Acid which is intensely moisturizing. When it's coupled with Vitamin C, your skin becomes better protected from environmental stresses and free radical damage. You can use the Serum twice a day - morning and night - on it's own or alongside the Vitamin C Renewing Moisturizer. The Renewing Moisturizer is a lightweight, radiance-boosting day moisturizer that naturally supports collagen health and in turn minimizes the look of fine lines (yes please!) while improving the appearance of uneven skin tones. I plan to give these puppies a few weeks to work their magic and then I'll report back!
I'm am very familiar with Kerastase products and I've yet to be disappointed by a single one. I blow dry and heat style my hair on a very regular basis, so I try to always remember some type of thermo-protectant. This leave-in primer claims to prevent breakage by 85% and it "provides instant hair surface-flaw correction" - Well, my hair sure as heck felt smoother once I blow dried it. The Vita-Ciment formula strengthens the hair fiber from the inside out, and Vita-Topseal instantly reconstructs the hair's protective outer layer and gives damaged hair a second life.
OKAY! This Flower Balm is AWESOME! This lip stain applies clear and changes shades based on your skin's pH level. It creates a unique and perfect shade of pink just for you! It contains a real chrysanthemum in the color of your choice, and it smells like coconut so basically you're just going to want to rub it all over your face haha! I loved the subtle color it gave my lips. Plus it's just really really pretty. The Stella Marina lipstick is an ultra long-wearing lipstick packs an incredible amount of pigment into something that applies like a super smooth mousse, and it's even infused with natural vanilla. I honestly can't get over how freaking cute the little pill-shaped tubes are. They're like fun little novelty toys in the bottom of my purse.
Eye drops are one of those things that often fly far under the radar - being silent, secret heroes for many of us. This time of year is especially hard on my lil' peepers because of the wind! SO drying! I'm almost never not rubbing my eyes or blinking over and over to hydrate them. These Clear Eyes drops are the first preservative free eye drops in a multi-dose bottle at retail in the US. They were even the winner of the coveted Product of the Year 2017 for Eye Care based on a survey of 40,000 consumers by TNS. I have a bottle in my purse at all times, as well as a bottle in my vanity drawer. They've saved the day more than once already. (Swing by here for a $4 off coupon before March 13th!)
It was pretty neat to feel a bit like a pampered celeb for once! I still can't quite wrap my head around just how much rad swag they get, but I'm feeling pretty good about this here little Babbleboxx! It makes me feel like I need to gather up my best gal pals for an awards viewing party - we can snack on our favorite goodies, drink champagne, and pretend we're headed home with oodles and oodles of fun goodies! Stay tuned in the coming weeks to hear what I thought of these products after some real life testing!
