I was happy to open up my InfluenceHer Kit to find these self tanning products by Bondi Sands! One of the products that I was gifted was this Dark Tanning Foam which is simple to apply and gives a flawless finish. This coconut scented tanning foam is lightweight, and enriched with aloe vera and coconuts. Bondi Sands tanning foam can be simply smoothed all over your body for an even, streak-free, and flawless tan. I also received an Application Mitt which helps to provide a streak free application, and is even reusable and washable. This Application Mitt is Perfect for Bondi Sands, Mists, Foams and Lotions and prevents stained hands. Another product that I received is Bondi Sand's Liquid Gold. This self tanning dry-oil contains argan oil for greater moisturisation and is infused with the fresh scent of coconut. This self tanner has a pump spray nozzle for a free mess application and sets in a moment which develops over 2-3 hours and lasts for up to a week. The last product that I was gifted with from Bondi Sands was their Tan Eraser (Sample Size). This is the world first instant tan remover. This eraser is an easy to apply foam that is non abrasive, and has no harmful ingredients or excessive exfoliation. This remover washes off after 5 minutes and is made with soothing aloe vera which moisturizes and leaves the skin silky smooth. These products by Bondi Sands are perfect for a couple end of the year events I have coming up at school!
I was excited to receive these Directional Geometric Metal Frame Sunglasses (my first fashion item) in my InfluenceHer Kit! These sunglasses have an oversized square shape characterized by feminine, soft gradient tinted lenses and textured metal chain temples inspired by the Juicy Couture jewelry collection. Color-coordinating acetate temple tips up the glamour quotient of this frame. These sunglasses are also offered in red gold/brown shades silver mirror, light gold/green shaded, gold beige/brown shaded violet and silver/gray shaded silver mirror. I cannot wait to wear these sunglasses throughout the spring & summer! (I will definitely be featuring these sunglasses in my future fashion posts!)
It was a pleasant surprise to receive 3 KIND bars in my InfluenceHer Essentials Kit! I have had KIND bars previous to receiving this gift and they are definitely one of my top favorite healthy protein bars! I was lucky enough to get three different types of KIND bars which included; KIND Breakfast - Almond Butter Protein, KIND Breakfast - Dark Chocolate Cocoa Protein and KIND Protein - White Chocolate Cinnamon Almond. The Almond Butter Protein bar and Dark Chocolate Cocoa Protein bar are both made with 8g of protein in each pouch. These are perfect for my early morning classes where I am not hungry enough to eat a full breakfast but want something light to eat as an on-the-go breakfast. My favorite is the White Chocolate Cinnamon Almond bar because I love all things cinnamon and it is also full of protein - which is the perfect pick-me-up for in between classes!
One of the first things that I had noticed when I opened up my InfluenceHer Kit was this beautiful cosmetic bag from LeSportsac - an iconic lifestyle brand with a global outlook. LeSportac has become known worldwide for its lightweight, high quality accessories, combining whimsical colors and prints with on-the-gofunctionality and enduring quality. Designed in the USA and made to travel (whether just around the block or around the globe), LeSportsac is a leader and innovator in the accessories market, committed to creating stylish, versatile bags that are made for the modern, mobile lifestyle and packed with possibilities. I absolutely love this adorable LeSportsac cosmetic bag which is a pretty magenta shade, and if you look closely you can tell that the bag has silver rabbits printed all over - perfect for Easter and the spring season! I am currently using this pouch as an on-the-go cosmetic pouch which I carry in my tote bag for when going to classes.
I was thrilled to receive various products from Palmer's (one of America’s first skin care companies) in my InfluenceHer Essentials Kit! The products in which I received were from a new Coconut Oil Formula Face Collection that Palmer's had launced which is made up of natural formulas in order to achieve naturally radiant skin. What I love about Palmer's skin care is that they are free of: parabens, mineral oil, sulfates, phthalates, gluten, GMOs and harsh chemicals. Palmer's also provides sustainably and ethically sourced ingredients, 24 hour moisture, and are non-comedogenic, dermatologist tested, hypoallergenic and are cruelty free. One of the products which I was gifted was the Coconut Oil Formula Coconut Water Facial Moisturizer. I was so happy to get this product because I believe that moisturizer is essential for any skincare routine! What I like about this moisturizer is that it reenews and revitalizes skin for a healthy looking, radiant complexion. This moisturizer also provides naturally skin friendly coconut water and hyaluronic acid which helps to drench your skin in moisture. This helps to instantly boost your skin's hydration for 24 hours due to the coconut water, hyaluronic acid and papaya enzymes. My favorite thing about this moisturizer is that it helped to brigthen my complexion and enhanced my skin's natural radiance! Another product that I received from Palmer's was their Coconut Oil Formula Coconut Sugar Facial Scrub.
This facial scrub uses natural exfoliating coconut sugar to gently buff & polish away dirt and dead skin cells which leaves a brighter, fresher and purified complexion. After using one of my favorite facial cleansers to wash my face I like to use this facial scrub as my final cleansing step in my skincare routine! Palmer's also gifted me with their Coconut Oil Formula Coconut Water Hydrating Sheet Mask. I was thrilled to receive this product because I love using facemasks every week and prefer sheet masks (like this one) over clay masks. Palmer's sheet mask combines naturally skin-friendly coconut water, hyaluronic acid and chamomile to drench skin in hydration and boost radiance. It is also made with 100% cotton material and is a single use mask - which was perfect for my weekly Sunday spa treatment! The last product that I received from Palmer's was their Cocoa Butter Formula Swivel Stick. I was happy to be gifted with this product because I have used this product before and absolutely loved it! This swivel stick provides on-the-spot help for marks and blemishes. It is ideal for touch-up moisturizing on face and body, but I prefer using it to moisturize and soothe dry, cracked, chapped lips! This swivel stick is made with cocoa butter: a rich, natural moisturizer that leaves skin soft and silky, transforming even the roughest, driest areas into buttery soft skin. It also includes Vitamin E: a powerful antioxidant that helps improve the appearance of scars, stretch marks and imperfections on the skin, giving a more even and toned appearance.
I was so excited when I opened up my InfluenceHer Kit and found this super girly, floral mini 12 Month Pocket Agenda from Rifle Paper Co. (one of my favorite stationary brands - I love all of their cards which are sold in Anthropologie!) Rifle Paper Co. is an international stationery and lifestyle brand, and since launching in 2009 with stationery, co-founder Anna Bond's signature illustrated florals can now be found on everything from calendars and journals to sneakers and pillows. I have been using this Juliet Rose pocket agenda everyday to manage my busy college schedule ever since I got it! This pocket agenda features a vibrant arrangement of blooms, as well as monthly and weekly views, space for notes and contacts, and inspirational quotes (my favorite part), all at a perfectly compact size. It is true that great things can come in pretty, petite packages, this agenda is definitely an essential to keep track of all your big and little plans!
I was also gifted with The InfluenceHer Collective "link in bio" Enamel Pin - which I immediately put on my inspiration board in my college dorm room.
