Disclosure: This complimentary box was received for review purposes From Influenster. All opinions are my own and no compensation was received. This website Disclosure Policy is here
Although I get a lot of boxes , samples, and freebies, I am always excited to hear that I have been picked to receive one of the Influenster VoxBox boxes!
If you aren’t familiar with Influenster, it is a free-to-join community of trendsetters, social media masterminds, and educated consumers who live to give opinions of products and experiences. They invite members to sample their “VoxBox” programs, totally free of charge in exchange for sharing honest opinions in via reviews and on special media. You don’t need to have a blog to be eligible or anything like that. Anyone can sign-up!
Based on the quiz that you fill out when they”pre-select” you for this box, you can generally get a pretty good idea of what’s in the box. Of course, you don’t know for sure until it comes, but I had an idea of what to expect.
Just like with most subscription boxes, VoxBox sends an information card with product details, etc. You are required to take a survey on your box and can, if you wish, blog about it, Instagram it, tweet about it, etc. to help you earn more points, but again, only the quiz is necessary! Here is what the Influenster’ Frosty VoxBox contained:
McCormick Gourmet Thyme $4.79
This is perfect for me at the moment since I’m currently try to expand my culinary skills and seasoning are just what I need, now to be honest I’m not sure if I’ve even used thyme in a recipe , but after looking around I got big plans… roasted chicken with lemon and thyme….sounds like perfection!
I tend to always wear eyeliner, but the one thing that is always bugs me is that it smudges and runs, and let’s face it I’m a crier so I tend purchase the waterproof variety, but I’ve never tried this brand (although I’ve heard of the brand). I applied the liner lightly on my eyes and I was shocked at how pigmented the color was… which means I can have fun, be creative without going over my eyes twently times to get the look that I want. I wore the liner all day and it stayed no problem… this one is a winner!
One of the things that I noticed when I reading about the Rimmel Eyeliner was that a lot of people were complaining that it was really difficult to remove, so I’m assuming that they didn’t use this make up remover. Now as a rule of thumb I don’t use an eye make up remove, and I guess that’s always why I wake up looking like a panda… but after using this product it’s pretty safe to say that I have been converted.
I love that this product had no smell and it was very gentle on my skin (hence the name) and a few swipes and all my eye make up including my water proof eyeliner! Which is always notoriously difficult to remove. I would purchase this again.
EcoTools Hair Brush $10.99
How much do I love this brush? a whole lot, when I first saw this brush I though that it looked pretty heavy, but when I picked it up I was so surprised by how light and easy to handle it was very light and easy to handle I redid my hair this weekend and before I even used the brush I was concerned about how the brush would react with Ethnic hair, I didn’t want it to snag and damage my hair… but I had to reason to worry at all… it worked like a dream. The brush made such a good impression on my I have to check out the other products from this company. I think this is my favorite item out of the VoxBox
When I first say this tea /I actually said that I was gonna skip it but after doing the Taste Test, I realized that it’s not so bad and this is something that I can have occasionally. What got me the most was the smell… it was really strong. I was also given a coupon, so I’ll be rushing to the store to get this and the Sugar Cookie one… yumm!
And I gotta say that I really love this companies slogan… “You are what you steep” such a cute play on words.
No7 Protect & Perfect ADVANCED Sachet Full Size $22.99
When I turned 30 the freakout about wrinkles began, luckily it’s not something that I deal with, but that doesn’t mean that I’m not activly trying to prevent them for as long as I can, unfortunatly I’m in the middle of an allergic reaction (I think it might have been the perfume that I received as a gift… and even though I didn’t put it on my face) have broken out, so at the time of the unboxing I was unable to try this product *sad face*
When ever I get new cosmetics I get really excited… and new lipsticks make me squee with delight, when I although I have used NYC products before I was a bit iffy about the color of this lipstick it seems a bit light for my complexion, but after wearing it sort of looks like a nude on me; and I generally wear darker shades, I think that I’ll have to wear it a couple of more times before I get used to it. But the one thing that really caught my attention was the smell, I don’t know what it is, but I really liked the light scent and the price point is phenomenal.
Fruit Vine Bites $1.28-$1.79
So you’re probably wondering why there isn’t a picture of MY Fruit Vine Bites, well that’s pretty easy to answer, I ate them, they were the first thing I grabbed out of my VoxBox and the first thing that I ate, I knew I was gonna have to blog about it (and take a picture) but my greediness knows no bounds and for that you get a stock picture. Strangely enough I had never seen this product before … apparently they’ve been doing quite a bit of traveling promotion (and I missed it). I love Fruit Vines but these seems to have an extra kick. I had the cherry flavored ones, they weren’t to sweet with just the right amount of tartness… I went to go look for another bag at the grocery store (so I could photograph it) but the Walmart was bare… don’t worry I’m still on the lookout for more bags….
This box was a real winner, I loved everything in the box! It’s been a long time since I’ve been able to used and give a favorable review of everything that was in my VoBox! Good job Influenster!!
Until Next Time,
