Influenster Beauty Blogger’s VoxBox



   Last week I received my second ever VoxBox from Influenster!  What is Influenster, you ask?  Only one of the coolest Word-Of-Mouth Marketing Websites!  Members of Influenster are chosen based on demographics and how active they are on their social networks to receive boxes filled with goodies in exchange for their honest opinion of the products.  The box I just received was the Beauty Blogger’s VoxBox, and it is filled to the rim with awesome products!

  The first awesome item was a ever pro lashes starter kit made by Kiss.  This kit includes  a pair of lashes, a small bottle of latex-free adhesive, and a Pro Lash Applicator.  I have never used false lashes before, and although I was quite nervous about trying at the same time, I was excited! The lashes are made of 100% human hair, and the adhesive is a 24 hour hold and is waterproof.

   The next item is a bottle of Vitabath Fragrance Mist with Vitamin E in Green Tea & Sage scent.  It is an 8 fl ounce pump bottle and the formula contains many antioxidants and vitamins including Acai, Goji, Coffee, Noni, pomegranate, Green Tea and Mangosteen, as well as vitamins A, B3, C, E and Pro-Vitamin B5.  With all of these antioxidants and vitamins you skin is left feeling soft and smelling great!  The Green Tea and Sage has a light, clean scent that reminds me of a cool, sunny day right after a cleansing rain.

  There was also a package of EBOOST, Daily Health Booster.  This dietary supplement is full of vitamins, minerals and nutrients to help boost your energy and immunity.  It contains no sugar or artificial flavors and is low in calories.  This was the first time I have ever tried a supplement like this, and I was pleasantly surprised both by the taste and the energy boost.  All I had to do was empty the packet into a glass, add water and drink.  This one was an orange flavor, and it reminded me of fresh squeezed orange juice.

   Next was a pack of Goody Simple Styles hair Spin Pin.  These corkscrew-shaped pins allow you to wear you hair in 3 different styles including the ‘soft spin’ or chignon, a side soft spin or a double spin, easily and quickly without using a ponytail holder.  Directions for each style are included in the pack, and are very easy to follow.  They remind me a bobby pins as far as the material they are made of and their color.  Unfortunately, my hair is pretty short but I was able to pull it back out of my face in order to get an idea of how they work.  They were extremely easy to insert and held my hair in place easily without any coming loose, and that is saying a lot since I have very curly hair!  You simply spin the spin pin clockwise to hold your style, and counter clockwise to release.  I cannot wait to experiment some more and see what styles I can come up with!  I definitely like these a lot better than ponytail holders and bobby pins!

   I also received a 1.5 ounce tube of Not Your Mother’s Kinky Moves Curl Defining Cream.  My favorite styling product to help shape and define my curls has always been a cream, so I couldn’t wait to give this a try!  Infused with Grape seed and Jasmine, the scent was incredible, but the real test would be how well it eliminates frizz and defines and supports my curls!  After washing, conditioning and towel drying my hair, I was ready to apply the cream.  Since I just had my hair trimmed, it is very curly and needs little product, so I squeezed an amount about the size of a nickel to start with.  I simply worked it through my hair, from roots to tips, then gently ‘scrunched’ to help shape the curls.  Then I let my hair dry the rest of the way naturally.  The result?

  Next was a New York Color Individual Eyes in their Dark Shadows palette.  This is a very cool concept in that this one case comes with everything you need to have beautiful shadowed eyes, including instructions!  This palette came with Primer Base, an Illuminator, 4 colors including 2 Crease/Contours, one a charcoal gray the other a bit lighter, an All Over Lid shadow in a light, silvery-gray and a Highlighter in a cream color;  all of which are labeled.  A double-sided sponge applicator is also included.  When you look on the back of the container there is a diagram with numbers showing you how to apply each color, as well as more step-by-step makeup application techniques underneath the label.  This is especially handy for people like me who have never learned how to apply eye shadow where you are blending and highlighting and such.  I couldn’t wait to give it a try!

   I am a huge scented candle fan, so imagine how happy I was when I saw that this awesome VoxBox also came with a Bath and Body Works small White Barn Scented Candle in Mahogany Teakwood, as well as a special coupon to receive a Bath and Body Works 3 Wick candle for only $10!   I was ecstatic!  As soon as my husband came home from work,  I begged him to come with me straight to Bath and Body Works which luckily is less than 2 miles away!  After dragging my husband and son through the store and making them smell almost every candle in there, I made my decision, a Nutmeg and Spice.  Naturally, while waiting in line, I kept thinking about my original choice, Lavender Vanilla, so at the last minute I changed my mind and my wonderful husband ran to switch it out for me.  Of course, on the way out of the store, my husband and I both saw they had the candle in our favorite signature Bath and Body Works scent, Moonlight Path.  Wouldn’t you know it, we wound up turning around and switching the candle again!  What an awesome husband!  Anyway, now that we were both very happy with our choice, we made it out of the store, and back to our apartment where we immediately lit the candle.
