Spotlight: Influenster Holiday VoxBox 2011

I joined Influenster a couple months ago because I love trying and reviewing new products--who doesn't?! I managed to qualify for their special Holiday VoxBox and I just received it today. I have to admit, I was sitting on the edge of my seat because my sister, who also signed up and qualified for the Holiday VoxBox, received hers 2 days ago! We live in different states, so apparently my postal system is just a tad slower.

Anyway, as soon as my VoxBox came I dove right in! I made sure to take pictures right then as well because I didn't want to forget and I knew I'd want to open up a few of the things I received right away. Good thing because Hubs already stole my Mentos Pure Fresh Gum! He loves that stuff ;)

First Glance

Here's a peek inside my Influenster Holiday VoxBox! Some fun goodies ;)

What I Received
Softsoap Coconut Scrub Bar - I am a huge sucker for anything coconut and especially during the winter, I love a good exfoliating bar. I'm interested to see how this works for me. Generally I use higher-end products, but I do buy Softsoap liquid soap sometimes, so I am familiar with the brand.

imPRESS Press-On Manicure - I love that they sent me hot pink! Do they know me? I don't like pink in general, but when it comes to nails and lips, I love it! I haven't worn fake nails since I was about ... 12 or 13, but I'm interested to see if/how these work for me.

LARABAR in Apple Pie - I am a big fan of LARABARs. Especially in my household, we eat a lot of natural food bars.

Mentos Pure Fresh Gum - I used to be a huge gum chewer, but I have super bad TMJ so I had to quit about 5 years ago (seriously still hurting over that one), but Hubs is a huge fan of Mentos Gum so he snatched this up the second I opened it ;)

NYC Liquid Lipshine - I received this in a nice nude color. If you follow my blog you know I'm kind of (accidentally) a bit of a high-end beauty fan. Not that I won't ever use drugstore products, in fact I use several regularly in my beauty routine, but they have to be AMAZING for me to want to use them instead of more expensive brands. Why? Because I personally find that the higher-end brands I prefer have better quality products and that they're more ingredient-conscious. I'll be interested to see how this compared to some of my $20+ lip glosses ;)

Montagne Jeunesse Peel Off Masque - Of all of the products I've tried so far, this was the one I thought I'd probably go "eh" over and then walk away. Ironically, I'm a tad impressed. The ingredients, aside from 2 dyes, are actually pretty great and this peel off mask actually peeled off! My skin looks a bit clearer/brighter and wasn't irritated. The only downside may be the initial smell, which was a bit strong at first, but it fades fast. Oh, that picture on the front is a bit creepy, too ;) But it doesn't affect my overall opinion of the product haha.

Favorite Product
When I do VoxBox reviews I'm going to list my favorite product moving forward. For this box it's a tough choice, but I'd have to say the Peel Off Masque. It really worked and that impressed me!

Final Thoughts  
I'm really glad I signed up with Influenster and have to say I thought this Holiday VoxBox was a fun little treat :) While I normally only review beauty products on my blog, it was nice to change it up a bit. I'm looking forward to hopefully reviewing more VoxBoxes in the future!

  1. I love your blog! I just recently signed up for the Voxbox and I canNOT wait to get my box. I received an email from Influenster saying that they had a couple extra holiday boxes and I'll be recieving one. I am so excited. I literally started jumping up and down when I read it. lol. I also just started my own blog which will have make-up n such reviews if you want to check it out :D
