IT FINALLY CAME!! My very first Influenster VoxBox!! For those of you who don’t know…
“Influenster is a community of tastemakers, social media hotshots, and educated consumers who live to give opinions of products and experiences. In Influenster Nation, influence is currency.”
Basically, Influenster mails out boxes to community members who have a significant social media presence and meet certain campaign criteria and demographics. The boxes contain products that you’re supposed to test, review, and promote as you feel fit. So without further ado, let’s dig in and discover the contents of my complementary Influenster VoxBox!
No. 1: Pure Leaf Sweet Tea
I prefer my tea unsweetened, but I’ve had Pure Leaf tea before and let me tell you what: it’s delicious. I decided to use this bottle as a gift to my dad, so I’m going to defer to him for a more genuine review regarding this specific product.
No. 2: Playtex Sport
Don’t worry, I won’t defer to my dad for a review on these guys. The tagline for Playtex Sport is #PlayOn and I think that it is so appropriate. With Playtex on my side, there is nothing I can’t do. I’m free to lounge around in my swimsuit, do physical therapy, go swimming, and participate in any activity all month long. Nothing holds me back. If you’re one of those people whose life stops once a month, you NEED to get to the store and buy yourself of Playtex Sport. I’ve tried other brands, but I trust Playtex to bring me the protection and security I need!
No. 3: First Degree Burn Cream
This product claims to promote skin healing and relive symptoms of minor burns and superficial scalds such as rawness, itching, and minor infection. It sounds like an excellent product, but let’s be honest: you’re going to have to wait on a review for this one. There’s no way I’m intentionally burning myself to try out some First Degree. I’m hoping to defer the review of this product to another family member…wink wink.
This product is part of an “innovative skincare system with a fine-tuned blend of barrier supporting Ceramides, protective protein complex and powerful skin brighteners”. I really like the part that says, “so your skin looks stress-free, even when you aren’t.” Sign. Me. Up. With school starting next week and my life about to get a little more crazy, I’m sure I’ll need a product that erases the visible signs of stress on my face. It’s too soon to tell how well this product works, but it’s really pretty to look at. Seriously. Look at those little pearly balls in there. Those have to do something amazingly magical.
No. 5: Bikini Ready Energy Gummies
Oh dear. This is the one product that will not get a good review from Brittany. First of all, one thing I really like about Influenster is that you usually don’t get sample sizes; you get the real deal. They want you to try and test the product and you usually can’t get a good feel from a traditional sample. But the Bikini Ready pouch came with 2 gummies in it. I was getting sleepy, so I decided to try out these things because they increase energy. First of all, they do NOT taste “great.” It might be because my 2 were purple and purple is my least favorite flavor, but I couldn’t get the taste out of my mouth. Yucky. Secondly, they did NOT energize me. So I flipped over the pouch and it said that 2 gummies provide the equivalent of about 1/4 cup of brewed coffee. So for a girl who practically lived on espresso for a year, 2 Bikini Ready Energy Gummies just aren’t going to do the trick. Besides, summer is almost over and I don’t wear bikinis anyway.
No. 6: Softlips Cube
I saved the best for last!!! I love this stuff! They say it “provides a luxurious blend of lip perfecting ingredients.” All I know is my lips feel great and they stay moisturized for a long time; I don’t have to keep re-applyig the product every 30 minutes. I’m not a big lipstick person and lip gloss tends to come off the first time a take a sip from my glass of water. The SoftLips Cube keeps my lips smooth and hydrated throughout my morning cup of coffee while adding a hint of shine to my smile. It even looks pretty sitting on my desk, so I’m less likely to loose it in the abyss that is my backpack or purse. Great product from a great company (they even slipped in a few coupons)!!!
So there you have it, folks! My Influenster VoxBox totally made my day. I love getting mail (packages are the best), I didn’t have to spend any money, I got a few tried and true products, and was made aware of a few new products that I am growing to love. I hope you enjoyed my review and will consider buying a Softlips Cube the next time you’re in desperate need of some “lip perfecting ingredients.” And don’t forget to #PlayOn :)
