Influenster Spring VoxBox!

Hi all! I've had this post queued up for awhile and for some reason never posted it. So here goes!

I was lucky enough to receive the Spring Fling VoxBox from Infuenster, filled with all sorts of goodies to try. This is my second Influenster VoxBox and I hope not my last, because I have discovered so many great products thanks to these boxes.

I received The Kiss everlasting French Manicure, Rimmel London Scandaeyes Retro Glam Mascara, Playtex Sport Fresh Balance tampons, NIVEA Skin Firming Hydration Lotion and a Peach Pie Car Air Freshener sponsored by the movie Labor Day.

I already did a full review of the Kiss everlasting nails, which you can read here. But I am obsessed with these nails. I love them. Quick, easy, and great looking nails. Do recommend.

To be honest, I am not a tampon girl. My flow can be really irregular and intermittent, and wearing tampons comfortably is not always practical in that sort of situation. But I do have friends who like and wear them, and this brand is by far the one they prefer. I was happy to pass these on to them.

I have been wearing the Rimmel Retro Glam mascara religiously since I opened it up and tried it. First of all, it comes in Extreme Black, which is my favorite shade. I love my lashes dark, dark, dark. The wand on this mascara is the perfect size, giving me even coverage without clumps or smudges on my eyelid! I like this one in particular because I wear glasses, so it gives me volume, curl and definition without too much length, so my lashes don't hit my lenses all day. Most mascaras I've tried, I need to curl twice because they make my lashes too long.

The NIVEA Skin Firming Hydration lotion is great. It has a really nice, clean, lotion smell that isn't too overpowering, and the lotion itself is creamy without being greasy. It has seemed to firm up my skin a little, though I don't use it religiously, still preferring my Bath and Body Works Triple Moisture Cream in Beautiful Day or everyday use. But this little bottle will be perfect to throw in my bag for my trip to Florida/the Bahamas later this month to keep my skin hydrated in the heat and humidity down there.

Lastly is this cute pie shaped air freshener sponsored by the Labor day movie. I haven't opened it because I don't want to waste the scent, but I am assuming it smells like peaches. I am not really a peach-lover (I prefer orange, lemon and apple scents)  so I think this will be perfect to pass on to my mom, as she loves anything peach.

Anyway, this box was really amazing. I got one of my staple favorite products (the Kiss nails), and found a new favorite (the Rimmel mascara). And even though there's a couple things I'm passing on to friends and family, I still say this box was a good one.

A big thank you to Rimmel London, Kiss USA, Playtex, NIVEA and Influenster for sending me these products to try and review.

As I mentioned before, I'm gearing up for a big vacation this month--I'm leaving next week for a cruise to the Bahamas, four days at Disney World and a day at Universal. I'm hoping to get up a couple posts before then with some product reviews,  OOTDs and maybe a "What I Packed for Vacation" post. I'll also tr to take lots of pictures while I'm gone and do a couple posts about my trip, some vacation OOTDs and a couple makeup looks for the heat and humidity. But no promises, because I might just forget :)
