I happened to be one of the lucky gals to get this fun-filled Voxbox from Influenster! Before I dish on the juicy details I’ll answer the question that’s probably bouncing around in your noggin. Voxbox? Influenster? What are they and how do I get one?
The best part of my Voxbox is that it was free and Influenster is free to join! And I qualified for this particular Voxbox by filling out easy little surveys and fit the criteria by my age, location, etc. I know, right!?
Shoot me a comment and I’ll send you an invite–first come, first serve!
Olay® Va-va-vivid! Cleansing System
This is by far my favorite of the goodies I received. The brush is tiny and triangular-which had me skeptical-but it gets into the crevices of my nose which is perfect for me because I have generally clear skin but get annoying pimples under the skin there.
The cleanser is nice, smells good, and leaves my skin clean but almost too clean. But that’s what their intention was so I can’t complain. Just remember to moisturize! I will continue to use this brush and cleanser and replace it when I’m out because now that I’ve used it, washing my face with my hands (like I did this morning because I forgot to bring it in with me) makes my skin feel like I didn’t clean well enough!
Also-I used a masque after cleaning with this system and I feel that it helped my masque do a better job!
Secret® Clinical Strength Stress Response Deodorant in Serene Citrus
This stuff is awesome! I’m not a stress sweater (if that’s a thing) but this stuff works no matter what I do to work up a sweat. When I saw the citrus scent I was a little “meh” but it’s actually really nice. Smells like an orange creamsicle and I can honestly say this stuff had me craving one every time I got a whiff. Weird, but true. Since I’m not a stress sweater I’d probably not buy this again, $10 for a deodorant, especially a soft gel (it’s more like a cream-I usually buy solids) is a bit steep for my pockets. But if you had a problem with stress or body odor I can see where it would obviously be worth it’s weight in gold as that is an embarrassing problem I thankfully don’t struggle with. Plus it’s endorsed by Oprah which is saying something. I wonder if her name is registered or copyrighted? Probably. Oprah©
Not Your Mother’s® Beach Babe Texturizing Sea Salt Spray
I was really excited about this stuff because (not to brag) I have beautiful long hair, that waves naturally. But (not to gripe) my hair is heavy, and with no product is limp. So any volume excites me! I have used sea salt spray before (by Redken thanks to my sister in law who is an accomplished hairstylist) but it wasn’t so much texturizing as it was … I’ll say! Perfume for your hair. It was awesome and is all gone but I kept the bottle and put water in it so my daughter can spray her hair when I spray mine and feel included. She’s 2 and is all girl… moving on. I was expecting a similar cologne like scent from this stuff but was surprised. The scent is very subtle but pleasant. It smells like Banana Boat tanning oil. If you’re unfamiliar with that smell I feel sorry for you and if you don’t like that smell get off my blog because yum. It made me flashback to when I was 115 pounds of un-stretchmarked pre-baby skin lying in the sun with sunglasses too big for my face. And I love it for that. The bottle I got is small, so I don’t know how well it works for volume. As I said before I have a lot of long heavy hair so I need a bigger bottle. You hear that Not Your Mother’s? In exchange for good reviews? Maybe?
Skinnygirl® Daily On-the-go Bars in Greek Yogurt Blueberry Crisp
I’m not gonna lie I don’t usually eat breakfast. I know I should. I’m doing better. I either eat bacon or make a smoothie. Sometimes. I’m bad at routines. But bars like these are nice because they’re packed with protein so you’re full and energized with little effort. It was yummy, yummier than most. I’d even go as far as to say it’s the best I’ve tried. And I’ve had Cliff, Powerbar, and Quest bars. However as a mom on a budget I am turned off by the price of around $10 for just five. I know that’s not much but to put it in perspective I can buy frozen fruit, fresh bananas and a tub of greek yogurt for the same price and make smoothies for me and my husband and daughter for a week. These are also natural, kosher, gluten free and high in fiber. Which is impressive and assuredly worth the price for someone with a bigger wallet or steady low-calorie diet. Maybe single?
Well that’s all I have, overall I’m happily surprised by everything and even happier still that they were free just to receive my honest opinion!
