Review: Influenster FrostyVoxBox

Hey Everyone,
Long time no see!  I've been really busy with school lately so that's why you haven't seen me in months.  Anyway, I was one of the lucky people picked by Influenster to receive the FrostyVoxBox, which I'm pretty sure is Influenster's Holiday VoxBox for this year (I got the 2012 edition and last year's was the Jolly VoxBox which I didn't get).  To not tease you any further, here's a picture of what the box looks like open:

It had eight items in all and they are as follows:

Boots No7 Protect and Perfect Intense ADVANCED:  I currently have no fine lines or winkles but maybe I do because they're so tiny I can't see them but I'm excited to try this and give a review in the morning.

NYC Expert Last Lip Color in Sugar Plum:  Yay Lipstick!  One thing I haven't gotten to try from Influenster and I got it.  Yes!  Anyway, this shade is definitely my color ( I usually stick to Berry tones) and I hope that it lasts on my lips (with all the drinking of non-alcoholic beverages I do).  Will give this a try in the morning.

Celestial Seasonings Candy Cane Lane Decaf Green Tea: I'm not usually a tea drinker but I do like tea that is flavored and doesn't taste like tea so I'll give it a try as soon as I'm done with this blog post.

Eco Tools Hair Brush: My hair brush from my 2012 Influenster Holiday VoxBox is meeting it's end soon and I need a hair brush that is fully intact.  This one caught my eye because it's not only environmentally friendly but comfortable too.  Will try this tonight after my shower.

Rimmel Gentle Eye Makeup Remover: I've been wanting to try a eye makeup remover for a while now and the one I wanted to get was too expensive so when I got my box and opened it my wishes came true.  I can't wait to try it tomorrow night when I take my makeup off.

Rimmel ScandalEyes Kohl Kajal Waterproof Eye Liner:  I've always wanted to try a kohl kajal eye liner before and missed my chance when I passed up the Julep box that had it in it for the month (Can't remember which one it was).  Anyway, now I get to try this one which I swiped it on my finger and it went on so smooth.  Will try this tomorrow.

McCormick Gourmet Thyme: It's odd to get a spice in my box but this one will go well with my herb-encrusted chicken recipe I got from a WeightWatchers cookbook.  Will try this tomorrow.

Fruit Vines Bites in Cherry: I like candy and I like anything sweet and this treat will be gone quickly but in moderation.  I can't wait to try this tonight after my shower and post a review afterwards.

And as always the disclaimer:

Disclaimer: I got these products from Influenster for testing purposes and to give my honest opinion on.

Well that's my box in a nutshell.  I hope you enjoyed this review and stay tuned for more (if I have the time).  Thank you and good night.

Review: Beauty Box 5 for October 2014

Hey Everyone,
Long time no see!  I am back to do some more box reviews and this one's on Beauty Box 5 for October 2014.  Now this box has surprised me.  It gives me samples of brands that are new to me or I haven't tried yet.  It is a really awesome box for the money.  Now on to what's in the box:

Chap Stick Hydration Lock 24 Hour Care 2 in 1 Lip Balm-  This lip balm has a side for daytime use and a side for nighttime use.  It's something I would use every day,  Keeper!

Extend Your Beauty Cosmetic Tool-  It's supposed to help you extend the life of your beauty products by helping you get the last bit of product out of your beauty products.  Maybe-Keeper?

Nanacoco Nail Polish in Magic Kingdom-  This nail polish is in a sparkly blue color and looks really neat.  Keeper!

BellaPierre Cosmetics Cheek and Lip Stain-  It's in a nice pink-coralish color and is solid.  You just drag your finger across it to get some product on your finger and place it on your cheeks or lips.  Keeper!

Lashem Picture Perfect Instant Wrinkle Reducer-  It also can be used as a primer if you don't have wrinkles yet.  Keeper!

Overall Review-  This month's box blew me out of the water.  The samples were all great especially the Chap Stick and I will use every one of them, maybe not the cosmetic tool but anyways they all were great.  Can't wait for next month.  Until next time guys stay tuned for more.

Review: Influenster GoVoxBox

Hey Everyone,
Last week I filled out a pre-survey for an upcoming VoxBox from Influenster.  The pre-survey before that was for an anti-aging serum which in the end I wasn't chosen for that campaign.  So as usual I crossed my fingers and waited for that acceptance email.  Well, this past Monday I got that acceptance email and I was chosen for the GoVoxBox which is a box of 8 items that I just got in the mail today.  This box has a health and wellness theme to it.  Here is a picture of what came in my box:

Looks cool doesn't it?  The box this all came in was huge.  I was the most excited about the protein shakes.  Let's get down to business and go through each item that I got and my first impressions.

Playtex Sport Fresh Balance Tampons-16 Tampons in the box- This won't get tested because I'm on the depo shot and I don't get periods anymore.  It's a nice item though that I wish I could use but I don't have a use for it.

Profoot Triad Orthotics and Pedi Rock- Now I put the orthotics straight into my shoes when I got them and tried them out and oh my gosh these are like walking on air.  I have the GoWalk shoes from Sketchers so my shoes are already comfortable but when I added these orthotics I had double comfort.  They are so comfy and will definitely get some use out of them.  The Pedi Rock that I also got will be used often after I soak my feet.  It's like a pumice stone but really soft and cushiony but it is on the rough side so it can attack calluses and dry skin especially on the heels of your feet.  Good products to get.

Blue Diamond Almonds Blueberry Flavored Almonds-1.5 oz. to go bag- I normally don't like nuts so I was skeptical about this product until I tried one almond and was hooked.  I like blueberries and anything blueberry flavored so this product was a go for me.  These almonds have a sweet taste to them and don't even taste like almonds.  I will be repurchasing in the 4 oz. package and will try the two other flavors.

AquaSpa Relax Bath Soak-Lavender and Chamomile Scented- Now I normally don't take baths but I just had to try out the bath soak for myself.  I was tense before the bath and once I was in the bath I started to relax.  Works like a charm.  I liked that the bath soak produced bubbles and had a pleasant smell that after I got out of the bath relaxed me enough to lull me into sleep.  Will have to get some more once I finish the jar I currently have.

The Vitamin Shoppe Next Step Fit and Full Protein Shake with Shake Mixer Cup-One package each of Swiss Chocolate, Fresh Berries, and French Vanilla- These shakes are really rich in flavor and very filling.  They can be used as a meal replacement shake for 2 meals and then you eat a sensible dinner.  But they are expensive- you get only a week out of a single container.  I'm going to repurchase and only use a serving as a replacement for 1 meal, preferably breakfast because I usually don't have time for breakfast so that container will last me two weeks instead of one.  They're currently on sale for 25% off this month only if you're interested.

Muller Yogurt Voucher-Good for one free yogurt product up to $1.49- I wanted to try this yogurt for a while now and now I have this voucher I can.  I just have to track it down in the stores first.  I hope I can because it looks so good!

Well that is my GoVoxBox from Influenster.  I got so many goodies to enjoy and had some fun sharing them with you.  Have a great day guys and stay tuned for more reviews from yours truly.

Note:  I got all these products from Influenster free for testing purposes and to give my honest opinion on each of them.
