Influenster Ponds BB+ Unboxing

When I received this LARGE box in the mail I had completely forgotten that I had received an invite to one of the most prestigious and exciting Influenster VoxBoxes to date. I was completely overwhelmed by the size of the box and couldn’t quite figure out from where the box had come.  I eagerly tore into the box, with glee, to discover what treasures such a mysterious box could hold.
The first thing I spied was a bright pink envelope.  Curious.  What    delights waited for me inside this little lovely? A quick scan of the    pink pages enclosed informed and reminded me that I had been    selected to one of the first to try the brand new Pond’s Luminous    Finish BB+ for free for review purposes. Only 200 have been    selected to participate in this program and I am honored to have    been selected.
The packaging for the new Pond’s BB+ is adorable. I am a sucker for anything pink or purple.  They sent extra for me to share with family and friends.  I am delighted that they sent extras to share.  Maybe this would be a good time to do a giveaway. It would be a nice way to remind both healthy and chronically ill women that feeling beautiful is important.  As women sometimes we tend to give too much of ourselves.

Knowing that this box was way too large for just a few tubes of BB+ I kept digging.  Only to discover this bright pink bubble wrapped delight. Quite surprised and shocked by the size of this of this treasure. The only think I could ascertain through the bubble wrap was that it was definitely bright pink. So, I carefully removed the bubble wrap being careful not to drop the treasure it contained.


Imagine the surprise and the joy on my face when I unwrapped this mirrored, neon pink ummmmm….. Well, I’m not sure yet what it is. Some would groan and say that whatever it is, it’s a bit garish.  I would beg to differ with them.  I find it terribly cute, super girly and simply delightful.  The fact that the mirror reminds one to “Be Your Beautiful Best” is a great reminder of that beauty helps this chronically ill gal feel healthy.
I gently lift the mirrored lid to discover two tubes of the new Pond’s Luminous Finish BB+.  Well, wow! This is simply the most adorable presentation box for any beauty product.  I am completely stunned.  This bright pink delight is simply the cutest presentation I have ever seen in my entire life.  It just doesn’t get any better than this.  The tray that holds the two BB+ Creams in place does remove if one wished to reuse the box.

The new Pond’s Luminous Finish BB+ provides flawless coverage while working to even skin tone in two weeks.  It contains SPF 15, lightweight moisture, tone perfecting complex formulated with vitamin E acetate and glycerin.  Luminous Finish BB+ aims to reduce the number of beauty and skin care products we use during our daily beauty regimen.  It is designed to conceal imperfections for natural looking coverage and leave skin with a matte finish.  It is hypoallergenic and non-comedogenic. It will be available at mass retailers this month will retail for approximately $9.99.  Pond’s has been trusted for over 150 years and didn’t rush to jump on the “BB” cream bandwagon.  They took their time to develop a product worthy to join this iconic beauty brand.
Prior to receiving this box I had talked about starting a YouTube channel to encourage women with chronic illness to use beauty as a tool to living a healthy, happy life.  This opportunity is now pushing me forward to start that beauty channel.  I am anxious and excited to determine where this journey will lead.  This is an extremely humbling way to start my YouTube journey.  This is an prestigious campaign and I am quite honored to be part of it.  Stay tuned to my blog, my Facebook, my Twitter, and my Instagram to join me on this journey into the wonderful world of YouTube.
