Product: Dr. Scholl’s For Her Ball of Foot Cushions

Product Description from the Website:
Created uniquely for women’s shoes, the slim design of Dr. Scholl’s® For Her Ball of Foot Cushions prevents your feet from sliding forward, so you avoid “toe scrunch”. Plus, they fit comfortably and discreetly in both open- and closed-toe shoes.

Helps prevent ball of foot pain
Immediate Massaging Gel™ comfort for the ball of your foot
Only ball of foot product made with unique FabuSTEP® gel
Prevents toe scrunch
Stays firmly in place
Removable without damage to your shoes
Discreetly fits all women’s shoes

Made with FabuSTEP® gel to prevent feet from sliding forward
Gel waves cushion the sensitive ball-of-foot area
Massages your foot with every step
Small design prevents toe scrunch
How to use:
Place on top of your current insole
No trimming required
Replace every 6 months or at first signs of wear

My Thoughts: These are super comfy especially in high heels. I do find that they do slide a little in the shoe through out the day which I think over time will be an issue. I definitely think that they are worth a try if you have a pair of heels that puts pressure on the ball of your foot.

My Thoughts: I love these! The only thing that I don’t like is the price. Most nail polish is less expensive and gives you countless uses where as with these you only get one use. I do love that there are so many designs to choose from and endless ways to express yourself.

Product Description from the Website: Sheer Cover® Concealer is perfect for all skin types and tones. Our concealer is a customer favorite offering a custom blend for the various shades on your face and covers up imperfections. It not only covers up the look of dark circles, blemishes, redness and age spots, it also moisturizes with Jojoba and Allantoin.

It instantly conceals blemishes, dark spots, hyperpigmentation and uneven skin tone – we’ve got life’s little imperfections covered!

KEY BENEFITS:
Instantly covers skin imperfections for a flawless, natural look
Variable coverage – sheer and creamy perfect for under eye circles or more opaque for blemishes, dark spots and hyperpigmentation
Easy application – glides on, won’t pull or tug at fragile skin
Enriched with natural, moisturizing Jojoba to help nourish and restore the skins’ natural moisture balance
Allantoin helps calm and soothe sensitive, irritated skin
Provides antioxidant protection from free-radical scavengers
Dermatologist-tested

HOW TO USE:
Using fingertips, concealer brush or a cosmetic sponge dab a small amount of concealer on area to be covered. Blend well. Start sheer, adding layers to increase coverage. Wear alone, under or over makeup. Let dry before applying makeup.

My Thoughts: This concealer covers fairly well and does a nice job at concealing redness. I do think that this is priced pretty steep for the amount of product received.

First of all I would like to apologize but these pictures are from the Birchbox site because I didn’t have time to take proper photos. 😦

Here’s what I got:

1. Modcloth headband- this headband is kind of neat but I don’t see myself ever wearing it.

2. stila stay all day 10-in-1 hd beauty balm- smallest sample ever, I’ve tried this at Ulta before and didn’t like it anyway.

3. theBalm® cosmetics Stainiac- decently sized but I’m not really one for red lip products.

4. Juliette Has a Gun Not a Perfume- smells pretty good but the price turns me away.

5. Melvita Floral Water- smells nice, maybe a little strong

Overall I’m not really thrilled about this months box. Your thoughts?
