I am sure most of you are asking yourself What’s a VoxBox? What’s Influenster? which is exactly the reaction I initially had just under a year ago after hearing the names for the first time. Influenster is a trendsetter community that uses your influence in order to qualify for complimentary PRODUCT SHIPMENTS, REWARDS & DEALS fit for your lifestyle. The more active you are, the more perks you get – easy as pie! A VoxBox is the technical term for the shipment of goodies you’ll receive if you are selected to product test once you’ve (in most cases) completed a simple survey. You can also increase the chance of being selected by connecting to and unlocking as many Influence Badges as possible once you create your profile.
Recently I was selected to participate in the Beauty Bloggers VoxBox:
NYC New York Color IndividualEyes Custom Compact | NYC New York Color’s all-in-one compact gives you everything you need for a complete eye look: primer, illuminator, applicator and complementing shadows. With four vibrant colors designed for your eye color, you can create a look as individual as you are! ($4.99) Check out their website here – http://newyorkcolor.com/
- First Impressions: I already own this exact same compact and was ELATED to see it in my Beauty Bloggers VoxBox! I actually love it so much I used it for my recent engagement photo shoot and a few other parties associated with my wedding! The primer glides on effortlessly and makes applying the shadow as smooth as silk. No creases, no need to reapply! I cannot wait to try out a new set of colors. PLUS you cannot beat the price.
Kiss Ever PRO Lash Starter Kit | Made from highest quality human hair. Use with Kiss adhesive for optimal results. Latex free, odor free, waterproof, flexible formula for 24hr hold, easy applicator. ($5.99) Check out their website here – http://www.everezlashes.com/
- First Impressions: The first thing that caught my eye about this product is the fact that it uses latex-free glue. So many of my friends have an allergy to latex so this is a brilliant move by Kiss. The PRO Lash Applicator makes it extremely easy to apply! I didn’t have an issue lining them up perfectly nor did I wind up with any of the product on my fingers or eyelid!
Bath & Body Works Mini Candles | Mini but Mighty! Our Mini Candles provide an amazing fragrance experience exclusively developed and tested by our team of Home Fragrance experts, including the world’s best master perfumers. Now in an elegant glass container, these are the perfect size for trialing all our fall home fragrances! Mini Candles burn approximately 15 hours. ($3.50) Check out their website here – http://www.bathandbodyworks.com/home/index.jsp?cm_mmc=Influencer-_-MiniCandle-_-SocialMedia-_-MiniCandle
- First Impressions: The candle included in my VoxBox was the Black Pepper Bergamot. I am not keen on the scent itself but know I will be able to find many other ones in store that will wind up around my home!
EBOOST | EBOOST is a boost that does more. It’s a mood boost, focus boost, immunity boost, natural boost, a no-crash boost. ($ varies depending on size) Check out their website here – http://www.eboost.com/
- First Impressions: This isn’t the first time I’ve sampled this product and unfortunately my original review stands – it’s just not for me. I don’t care for the taste (very astringent) and the texture is a bit thick for me even after mixing well!
Goody Simple Styles Spin Pin | The Spin Pin does the work of 20 bobby pins! Easily achieve chic updo styles; simply twirl your hair up and spin the Spin Pins in for a perfect top knot, undone bun and side bun!($7.29) Check out their website here – http://www.goody.com/
- First Impressions: First things first I have painfully thin hair so while I was excited to test this product I wasn’t sure it’d be able to hold my hair in place. Color me excited when it actually stayed IN! It takes a little bit of work to get the pins in just the right spots, being careful not to cross over each other, but once I had it secured from my scalp through the mini bun I was set! It’s great for casual looks but in order to wear out for a fancier event/evening I’d have practice quite a bit more. All in all I love it and it looks a lot better than a ponytail holder!
Not Your Mother’s Kinky Moves Curl Defining Hair Cream | KINKY MOVES™ helps encourage natural curls by giving them that extra oomph they so desperately need. It eliminates frizz and fly-aways to show your true locks. Infused with natural grapeseed & jasmine this salon formula will add that extra bounce to your step. ($6.00 for full sized 4-oz bottle) Check out their website here – http://www.nymbrands.com/
- First Impressions: This product smells so good it makes me WISH I had curly hair so I could use it on a regular basis! But alas I have stick straight, extremely thin locks so I will have to pass this along to a friend who can put it to good use.
Boots No7 Beautiful Skin | Beautiful Skin – the newest and easy to use two-step range of everyday skincare cleansers and moisturizers, tailored to your specific skin type eliminating the need for toners. Products are color-coded, making it easy to find just the right products for your skin type: Normal/Oily (Pink), Normal/Dry (Green) and Dry/Very Dry (Lilac) ($13.99) Check out their website here – http://www.shopbootsusa.com/
- First Impressions: This product glides on easily and hasn’t clogged my pores so far! I am always interested in trying new night creams as at the age of 32 my skin is letting me know that I’m “no spring chicken” anymore!
Sensational VoxBox, Influenster! Keep them coming and I’ll keep the posts flowing. 🙂
