BzzAgent Review: Gucci Flora Garden Collection Campaign

This was one of the most beautiful campaigns I have ever been a part of as a bzzagent. The Gucci box, the tiny perfumes themselves, the tissue paper and little bow. It was all in the details. It was a beautiful package!

This is what I received!

It came with 3 different perfumes that suit each other nicely.  They are small in size but ample enough product to try. It came with samples of each to distribute which I did right away to family and friends. One of my pictures actually got 2 friends to sign up with Bzzagent! 1 qualified for this campaign and also received it! She was very happy. :)

They are: Gracious Tuberose, Glamorous Magnolia, Gorgeous Gardenia.
Gracious Tuberose I could picture my very grandmother wearing when she was alive. It is subtle but elegant. She always stood up straight and painted her nails, even if they were clear. I remember sitting beside her and rubbing them to feel the polish.  When I smelled Gracious Tuberose it sent me back and reminded me of her.  She was definitely gracious. I would have gifted her this if she were still alive.

Back to the other two:  Where Gorgeous Gardenia is an outside brunch get together, Glamourous Magnolia is a fancy outside dinner party.

I go back in forth between the two last ones. They are both very lovely. I can't choose a favorite but I do lean towards Glamourous Magnolia more I think.  Some may feel that they are scents for an older woman, perhaps in their 40s or more. They are very floral and a bit musky. I noticed online they have a Generous Violet Scent. Something tells me that one would have been right up my alley!

They did not last all day on me. I experienced them to have a short life span. :) The packaging of these perfumes is elegant and classy. This would make a perfect gift for that special woman in your life.

Rating: A neat combo of elegant floral scents. - the lasting Power.

I love trying out new products & bzzagent always gives me the opportunity. 
I received all items free as a bzzagent and this is my honest opinion! I hope it helps.

My Influenster Spring Beauty VoxBox 2012

I was SUPER EXCITED to receive this absolutely free from to test and review! Many items I was already very curious about, and it made it so much more exciting to find them in the package as I opened it.

After trying out these products, here is how I felt about them:

Sheer Coverage in Medium/Tan:
I have always wanted to try this. The color was PERFECT. It performs very well, but wears down by the end of the day. You will need to reapply.
Rating: B -havin skins everywhere will love this. Others may not.

Aveeno Daily Moisturizing Body Wash:
What's not to like about this? It does everything it says. I have sensitive skin and this does not irritate at all. Good scent.
Rating: A good overall body wash.

Chapstick LipShield 365
Great SPF and very very moisturizing. I wear it every day. It does not leave my lips dry like other lip balms tend to do. and the scent is lemon cream or something of the sort.
Rating: A delish way to protect your lips.

SoyJoy bar in Blueberry
Healthy but it tastes healthy. It has been compared to Fig Newton cookies. YES it does taste like this a lot. Not to my liking. Fig Newtons are probably better.
Rating: C

Sally Hansen Salon Effects Nail Polish Strips in "Frock Star"
Great idea. However it is not as easy to apply. As I pulled them apart many broke away unevenly and applied on my fingernails unevenly as well. They still looked great but did not last more than a day. I got compliments I just wish they lasted better than normal nail polish! I probably need more practice as well. OH! It did seem to do better on my toes.
Rating: B-

Dr. Scholl's For her Ball of Foot cushions
Beautiful and comfortable. Will not fit all shoes because it may cause snug shoes to fit too tight. I lasted an 8 hour day but by the end my feet were hurting me. Still, my heels lasted me longer!
Rating: A-

Bath & Body Works Fine Fragrance Mist in Moonlight Path
Beautiful Bottle as you will see in the video. The scent was way too strong for me. I have other scents by BBW that I love though. This isn't a deal breaker for me. They are way too popular. Im not sure I could tell a difference between this type of fragrance and the regular body sprays I have. I think my body sprays last longer. This did not last.
Rating: C (for the scent and not lasting. seriously need to change this one.)

Would I purchase any of these?
Hmmm... Sheer cover in a thicker long lasting formula only.
Dr. Sholls Foot cushions for my other heels. I find myself wishing for those when I forget them.
& perhaps the Chapstick. Everything else, I've had better!

But overall a GREAT Influenster package that I was so happy to try.
