I’ve been feeling really lucky the past few weeks as I’ve been invited to a bunch of fun events and have received a ton of fun goodie bags of product. But I was especially surprised when I received not one, not two, but THREE Influenster packages this month. The Shiseido WetForce BB VoxBox showed up at my door, and I was super excited because recently I’ve been trying all of these Shiseido products and really loving!
The WetForce BB VoxBox included the Shiseido Sports BB Broad Spectrum SPF 50+ WetForce ($46/Cdn), the Ultimate Cleansing Oil ($33/Cdn), the Urban Environment UV Protection Cream SPF 40 ($40/Cdn) and a cute little makeup bag.
The Sports BB Broad Spectrum SPF 50+ WetForce looks like a really neat product. It’s a light-weight BB cream that is water resistant with SPF. However, they sent me the shade “dark” and its SO dark that I couldn’t even test it. This was a bummer because I think it would have been great for Vegas!
The Ultimate Cleansing Oil was something I had never even tried before, and was kind of intimidated by to be honest. Was I supposed to use it like a makeup remover? Was I supposed to wash my face with it? After accidentally spilling it on the floor of my bathroom, I was more than tired of the product before even trying it! I finally gave it a whirl….and I really, really, really did not like this product. When mixed with water it turns white and I honestly couldn’t even get it off my face! It also made a huge mess all over my sink and counter. I will not be repurchasing this!
Finally the Urban Environment UV Protection Cream Broad Spectrum SPF 40 was a pretty decent product. It went on very thick, but blended out nicely and didn’t turn my foundation into a greasy mess later in the day, so this product receives a thumbs up from me.
All in all, the best part was the mini makeup bag! Jokes aside, I was sad that I didn’t love any of these products, as I’ve really been enjoying Shiseido products this year. I think the BB Cream would have been a hit had the shade worked for me, but the Cleansing Oil was not up my alley, and the SPF was just ok. A big thank you to Influenster and Shiseido for sending me these products!
Have you tried any Shiseido products that you’re loving recently?
I’m just winging it. My life, my eyeliner, everything!
*I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes.
