This is a long overdue post about the J'Adore VoxBox I received from @influenster with 5 products to test. 

In my opinion the best thing in the box was Boots Botanics Clay Mask. I have been on the hunt for a good cleansing mask and have tried a few in the last 6 months from Target and CVS but I wasn’t sold on any. This one however is amazing. It doesn’t have a scent and goes on really easily. Afterwards my face feels great and not oily but also not overly dried out.

There were also Hershey’s Valentines Milk Chocolate Kisses, as the boyfriend and I aren’t big on milk chocolate I decided to take these to the office. My co-workers were big fans.

Next up I tried the Creme Caramel tea from Red Rose Tea. At first I was very apprehensive about trying this tea. I LOVE caramel (see this weekends post and Ben & Jerry’s new core flavor!) but caramel flavored tea didn’t have me sold right away. I however was pleasantly surprised and the caramel flavor wasn’t over powering and didn’t taste fake like some flavored teas. This would be one I would consider purchasing in the future. 

The final two products in the box I have not gotten around to using yet. 

John Frieda Frizz Ease 3 Day Sraight Styling Spray. As my hair is already bone straight a straigtening spray isn’t really markted at me. But I can comment that it smeels great. I also have not tired the Kiss Looks So Natural Flirty Lashes. I haven’t really had a place to wear fake eye lashes. If I had decided more than 15 minutes before we were leaving for the boyfriends theater award show last night I would have warn them. I will update when I actually try them out.

Asian Lettuce Wraps

Here’s another one for the gluten free folks. Also I don’t eat a lot of meat so I substitute the pork for tofu or another vegetable.

Ingredients:

  •  4 cups water
  •  2 cups uncooked white rice
  •  1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  •  1 pound ground pork or tofu, cut into small pieces
  •  1 bunch green onions, thinly sliced
  •  1/2 teaspoon minced garlic
  •  1 (14 ounce) package firm tofu, drained and cubed
  •  2 carrots, shredded
  •  3 tablespoons hoisin sauce
  •  2 tablespoons soy sauce
  •  1 teaspoon sesame oil
  •  1/4 teaspoon hot chile paste
  •  1 head iceberg lettuce leaves, separated

Directions

  1. In a saucepan combine the water and rice. Bring to a boil, cover, and reduce heat to a simmer. Simmer for 20 minutes, until water is absorbed. Set aside and keep warm.
  2. Heat oil in a wok over medium-high heat. Cook the pork, green onions, and garlic for 5 to 7 minutes, or until lightly brown. Add the tofu, carrot, Hoisin, and soy sauce, stirring frequently until heated through. Remove from heat, and stir in the sesame oil and chile paste.
  3. To serve: spoon a small amount of rice into each lettuce leaf, top with the stir-fry mixture, and drizzle with additional soy sauce or hoisin, if desired. Wrap the lettuce leaf to enclose the filling.

Trying out the Boots Botanics Shine Away Ionic Clay Mask that I got in my @influenster box. Love it so far but I need something to do while I wait for it to dry!#powerofplants

Part of my very late lunch/dinner after a long day of training. Fruit, salad and sojola blueberry soy yogurt.

Boots Botanics Ionic Clay Mask #powerofplants

I received the IONIC CLAY MASK as a sample from Voxbox Box for the purpose of reviewing.

I applied the mask in a thin layer and was pleased by how quickly it dried. When removed I felt my pores were visibly smaller and cleaner. But after a few uses my face felt oilier than before I used it. I think this particular formula dried out my skin. The problem was alleviated when I added raw trader joes honey to the mixture.

Give it a try. I just happen to have SUPER oily skin.
