I received the Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant* from ifabbo.com for review about 6 weeks ago.
I've used it a few times a week since receiving it, and I thought I'd go ahead and review it now that I'm familiar with it.
First, let me describe what it is and what it does.
The Dermalogica Daily Microfoliant is a daily exfoliator. What makes this unique compared to the other exfoliators I've used it that this one is a powder.
It is described as a gentle, daily use exfoliating powder for all skin types. It is a rice based powder that activates upon contact with water. When mixed with water it releases Papain, Salicylic Acid and Rice Enzymes. These micro exfoliate dead cells, leaving your skin smoother and brighter.
I'm a girl with extremely, almost unbearably dry skin. I use this about 3 times a week and I love it. For the first couple of weeks, I used it everyday and it was great, but I'm now using a Clarisonic once a week as well, so I didn't want to risk overdoing it.
So, how did this perform? It exfoliated well, it cleaned my skin, my skin is smoother and brighter after use and it didn't dry me out. I consider this a total win.
This exfoliant isn't harsh and does have huge scrub beads in it like some have. This is a very fine scrub and isn't scratchy or even painful as some can be. This one is very pleasant.
Also, I've been using this religiously for 6 weeks and I've barely put a dent in the bottle, so I feel like it's going to last a long time, which is a huge plus.
As you well know, I've been part of Influenster for a long time and it's a program I absolutely love. Every so often you'll be chosen to participate in a campaign where you will receive a box known as a 'Voxbox' full of goodies to review.
The last one I received was the Mary Kay Voxbox, which I loved.
Once you get the box, you're given a list of 'tasks' to perform. They aren't mandatory but completing them gives you a better chance to qualify for another Voxbox.
Each Voxbox is totally unique and full of awesome products; one of my favorite parts of a Voxbox is that the products are usually a mystery and it's a surprise when you open the box. Also, these products are usually full size, not just tiny samples.
It's good to know that you won't receive every single voxbox. Sometimes there is a long waiting period between boxes, but you will get boxes!
One way to help you get more boxes is to extend your 'social impact'.
On your profile, there is a place to link all of your social media sites and blogs and this will increase your social impact. The more sites you connect, the higher your impact!
There is also an InfluensterApp that you can download. This way you can access their website with the touch of a button on your phone!
Influenster is an awesome opportunity to try new products and share your opinion with the company that made the products, your friends, family, etc. It's a great program and they're always accepting new people! If you'd like an invite, leave your e-mail in the comments and I'll send you a direct invite to the program, and hopefully soon you'll be opening your first Voxbox.
Thanks for reading!

Pinky Paradise sent me these contacts for review and I've been meaning to post this for a while, but I kept forgetting so here is my long awaited review of the Pinky Paradise contact lenses in Grey*.
The contacts that I got from Pinky Paradise are the Vassen Jewel Grey circle lenses. These are prescription lenses, which is awesome.
These contact lenses are surprisingly comfortable considering they're slightly larger than regular lenses. They do a great job of disguising my eye color, and they look much more natural than I had anticipated.
These contact lenses last up to a year after being opened.
I love these contacts and I think they're a great addition to your beauty routine if you like changing up your eye color or making your eyes look larger.
