Today is a very exciting day for me. Guess what came in the mail today?
That's right...my very first Influenster VoxBox!
Influenster is a program where you can sign up, review products and connect with social media in order to raise your Influenster score. When your score is high enough, you can qualify for VoxBoxes just like this one.
I received the J'adore VoxBox, filled with all sorts of awesome goodies to share with all of you.
When I saw this was going to be included in the box, I was so excited. I am obsessed with clay masks, and I am searching for the perfect one. This is the Boots Botanics Shine Away Ionic Clay Mask (Retail: $9.39).
"Treat your skin to deep cleansing with this mineral-rich clay mask. Designed for use on normal skin, the unscented, hypo-allergenic formula absorbs excess oil and deeply cleanses skin. The oceanic clay exhibits a negative electrical charge, which helps to draw out impurities without overdrying, leaving your skin feeling softer and smoother."
I am so excited to try this mask, and I'll be doing a full, in-depth product review of this mask in the coming days.
To be honest, I am not a big hair person. I have really long hair, but I am not good at styling it at all. I pretty much just let it dry and do what it wants. When I do decide to style it though, I default to a flat iron because it's relatively easy to handle and difficult to screw up. My hair holds straightening pretty well, but it does get pretty frizzy. But maybe this will help--the John Freida Frizz Ease 3-Day Straight Flat Iron Spray (Retail: $9.99 for 3.5 fl. oz.).
"Revolutionary heat-activated formula wraps each strand in long-lasting straightness for up to 3 days (or until your next shampoo if less than 3 days) without weighing hair down. Formula, infused with Keratin, protects against heat damage and blocks frizz, making hair glossy, smooth, and swinging with body."
Well I know that I will likely not be able to test the 3 day claim, because I can't ever go that long without shampooing. My hair is too oily to last that long. But I have pretty high hopes for this product, and I have a feeling that my hair-obsessed sister will be helping to test this with me.
I have a long-standing fear of false lashes. I am terrified of gluing my eyelids shut, or having crooked lashes. I am pretty blessed with my lashes--they are naturally long and really only need a little mascara for volume sake. I have some experience with Kiss nail products, but the is the first time I've seen their Looks So Natural Lashes (Retail: $3.99).
"KISS Looks So Natural Lashes are made with Tapered End Technology so lash strips blend seamlessly with your own lashes, inconspicuously highlighting your eyes--they're so luxuriously light and comfortable, you'll forget you're wearing them! Available at Walgreens & CVS Stores Nationwide."
Now despite my naturally long lashes, and despite my fear of forever being Patchy the Pirate, I am intrigued by these. Sometimes a girl needs to take a risk to really reap a reward and so I think I will be taking the plunge and trying these babies on.
I am not a huge tea drinker. Sometimes I can drink iced tea if it's super sweetened, and I am a fan of Starbucks Tazo Passion Tea Lemonade (I even perfected a make-at-home recipe to save my wallet!). But the flavors of these Red Rose Simply Indulgent Teas (Retail: $4.49 for a carton of 20 tea bags) have me wondering if my palette can handle them.
"Red Rose Simply Indulgent Teas deliver rich decadent flavors in a premium black tea blend. Enjoy this indulgence in a cup, with none of the calories and none of the guilt."
I got three tea bags in the flavor Creme Caramel and one Decaf Lemon chiffon. I am going to give these the old college try, and hope for the best. If not, I can always share with my mom.
Ahh...and the big kahuna. A family size bag of Hershey's Kisses Milk Chocolates (Retail: $5.29). As you can see, I couldn't even wait for the photo before digging in to the bag. I am a Special Dark girl myself, but these are perfect to share with my entire chocoholic family.
"The right words don't always come easily. And sometimes it's impossible to say what you really mean. But give someone Hershey's Kisses Chocolates and you'll instantly say it all."
Maybe I'll leave a little pile of these on the kitchen counter for my dad when he comes home, 'cause he is the biggest chocoholic of us all haha.
Some Influensters also got a Vaseline Men's Spray Lotion in their box to share with their boyfriends/husbands, but I did not. Probably because I am as single as the day is long.
Overall, I am totally psyched to have gotten this box. There are some great products in here and I am really looking forward to trying them out.
If you are interested in becoming an Influenster, feel free to leave a comment below. I don't get anything if you use my link to sign up, but I can send you an e-mail invitation and I think it affects both of our Influenster scores for the better.
Be on the look out for my in-depth review of the Boots Botanics Clay Mask, and for updates about my use of the other products in this box :)
FTC Disclosure: I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes.
