Can you believe that it's already August?! No lie, I'm kind of excited that we're in August already, because that means we are one month closer to my favorite month aka. Septemeber, and our potential moving month!!

With all of the stress that comes with building a home, working a full-time management job, and running a kick booty side-hustle, your girl is tired and is always in need of a little self-care.

Last week, Infuenster graciously sent me their #SummerSelfCareVoxBox, and it was full of so many goodies! I was expecting maybe one or two items like usual, but they sent four high-quality beauty and health products that I had either wanted to try or fit in perfectly with my lifestyle.

This box retailed almost $150, so I was pleasantly surprised to test out these new-to-me products. The first product that caught my eye was the Aquis Hair PreWash. I've only washed my hair once this past week, so I tried it out once so far, but in that one use, I noticed that my hair was less frizzy and maintained its curl!

To use this pre-wash, all you do is spray it onto your dry hair before washing/showering, let it sit for a couple of minutes, and then carry on with your normal hair washing routine! If you have extremely frizzy or unhealthy hair, definitely give this a try. It's meant to set your hair back to its natural pH, protect your hair's natural moisture, and leave your hair frizz-free, smooth, bouncy, and easier to style. After just one use, I can 100% say that it did this for me! It's under $30, and I feel that it will last a good while since you only need to use it where you feel your hair needs a little extra help. For me, I sprayed it around my roots and on my ends!

Raise your hand if you have naturally curly hair! 🙋 Sometimes when my hair decides to cooperate, I'll leave my hair naturally curly--especially in the summertime, because I love to embrace a natural beach wave. Well, if your hair needs a little extra help to get that beach wave, grab the Amika Brushwick Beach No-Salt Wave Spray! It helps to accentuate your natural curl by giving it texture and volume. It also helps to fight frizz, which we could all use a little help with during the summertime. I'll definitely be taking this with me when we head to the shore in a couple of weeks!

Last month was a month to try out lash extensions, and this month is the month to let them go natural...with the help of mascara of course. I love, loved my lash extensions, but for me, the upkeep is a little too much money right now--especially since we are in the final stages of buying our house and paying off the last little bit of our student loans. The cost just didn't fit into our budget, however, if it does fit into your budget and you are looking for effortless lashes, I highly recommend them!

Within the Vox Box, they sent me LASHFOOD Phyto-Medic Eyelash Enhancer. It's a top-selling lash enhancer clinically demonstrated to enhance lashes for a longer, thicker lash look. In just four weeks, you should have noticeable results, an after sixteen weeks, you will be able to see the full results of the enhancer! I am super excited to be testing this out, and I can definitely keep you guys updated through the process of me using it!

I was reading some of the reviews online, and one of the girls that just started using it had on lash extensions as well, and she let them fall of naturally like I did, and then started using this enhancer. People were complimenting her on how great her lash extensions looked and she didn't even have them anymore!! I'm more than excited to see these results.

The last thing in the box was 8Greens Effervescent Tablets. It's a delish, vegan, lemony tablet with 8 real greens and only 10 calories to provide antioxidants for glowing skin. Sign me up, please! Over the past two months, I have been so dedicated to taking my vitamins, and it's turned me into a somewhat vitamin and health nut because I feel and see the difference that they have made!

These tablets dissolve in water and give you 8 greens that you need like spinach, wheatgrass, kale, blue-green algae, spirulina, chlorella, barley grass, and aloe vera. All of these good-for-you ingredients help to support a healthy aging process, support red blood cells and circulation, it calms redness, and provides the extra nutrition you might be missing in your diet.
