Wait wait….people seriously don’t spoon out the kiwi fruits delicious goodness? I didn’t know there was any other way to eat them?

I could get used to this Influenster thing. Get some free health and wellness products shipped to my door? And use the opportunity to talk with everyone about how commercial fitness companies use advertising to exploit their audience? Hey, I should have started this a while ago.
Today, I was lucky enough to receive a “Vitality VoxBox” from Influenster which contained a total of six products for me to review: First Degree Advanced Burn Cream, Pure Leaf Iced Tea, Playtex Sport tampons, Softlips Cube, Elizabeth Arden Flawless Future serum, and Bikini Ready Energy gummies. I’ve happily ranked these into three main categories: The Best, The Good, and The Ones to Avoid.
Best: I already have 3 Pure Leaf teas in the fridge (except that I prefer the unsweetened version) and I happily buy Playtex whenever there’s a coupon. I could do without the tampon’s “freshness” rhetoric in their commercials, but it’s still a good purchase. Both of these products are reliable and worth buying.
Good: I’ve never heard of Softlips or First Degree, but I’m happy enough to try both of them out. They seem useful, of good quality and will be worth keeping around. First Degree looks especially handy, since it can be used as both a first aid healer or in more minor situations like getting razor burn. Both of these are good to have during summer.
Avoid: “Bikini Ready” gummies and anti-aging serum? These are not health products - These are ways to exploit your fears about getting fat and getting older. Don’t fall for this junk: You don’t need to take precautions at the first sign of aging and you don’t need to “boost your metabolism” in order to wear a bikini. Commercial companies are just using your insecurities and your interest in fitness as a way of making you spend money on products that aren’t a necessary part of healthy living. (The Elizabeth Arden serum costs $60 for 1.0 fl oz!)
There’s nothing inherently wrong with wanting an energy supplement or moisturizing your skin, but always think about why you’re using the product. Is it beneficial because it actually makes you feel good, or because you’re afraid of what you’ll look like without it? Keep in the back of your mind that you’re under no obligation to look “flawless,” nor do you have to conform to a “fit” physique just so that you can wear certain styles of clothes. If a company is pressuring you into feeling bad about yourself just so that their product can make you feel better, then avoid it - Don’t start that cycle to begin with and then you’ll never have to break free from it.
**I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes.
Remember when Never Have I Ever games used to be like “never have I ever had sex *giggle*”
Now it’s like “never have I ever had a six person orgy in a broom closet” and people are all like “crap, I’m out.”

and when sirius dies she will be the orphan black
Just passed a group of bros in the parking lot. They were all wearing snapbacks and muscle shirts. As I passed I heard their conversation. The one bro was arguing, “Naw man, Dumbledore was a terrible caretaker, he literally sent kids into fucking death forest for detention. Messed up man.”
