Influenster Holiday Box Item #2: Montagne Jennesse Clean-up Mud

I’m back with another Influenster post! The next item I got was this:

I was very excited to get a face mask, since my face has been broken out lately. Hormones+Holiday cookies=lots of concealor.

First thing I noticed was the smell. It was minty and very strong. The mud texture was wonderful and went on very smoothly. This particular one contained Aloe Juice to help with breakouts. WONDERFUL!


I let it sit for 10-15 mins (I was watching Battlestar Galatica and taking care of 2 puppies so not sure exactly how long). It was very firm and dry. I couldn’t even move my face to smile for the camera!


It was work to get it off, but I did, and my face was fresh and clean!


Usually with any type of face product, my skin gets red and dry, but this left it soothed and moisturized. And today it feels great still! Thanks Influenster!

Influenster Christmas Box Item #1: Quaker Oats Real Medleys Oatmeal


Today I got my Holiday Box from Influenster. If you are unfamiliar with Influenster, it’s a website you can sign up for to receive products and review them. Check out and start influensting (new word)!ImageHere is the first thing I pulled out of my box. It was perfect since I got my box at around 9 am and I hadn’t eaten breakfast yet. I love Quaker Oatmeal since they always put out great quality stuff, especially these on-the-go type meals. 

This one had Cherries, Pistachios, Almonds, and Quaker Oats (Of course!). The directions gave the option to put it in a pot and boil it, but since I was at work, I went with the microwave version. Honestly, I would have gone with that if I were at home too, since I’m lazy and want my food when I want it lol!

I microwaved (‘waved? micro’ed?) with some water added, let it sit for about a minute afterwards and….


It was delish! The cherries added a wonderful sweetness, and the pistachios balanced it out with a slight salty flavor. I gobbled it up! I’m going to be looking for these in the market next time and see what other flavors there are. If they are as good as this one, they will be bought….by me….then eaten…you get it.


Stay tuned for more Influenster products! Coming up next… Montagne Jennesse “Clean-up Mud” face mask.
