The Dean’s List VoxBox
Heya Aspiring Gurus!
It was only a short time ago that I was notified that I would be receiving the Dean’s List VoxBox and sharing that with Dani, who is also getting the same VoxBox. A fat that is very exciting for me, because I will have someone to share in my excitement! I feel so lucky and blessed! I want to take a moment and thank the lovely people at Influenster for making VoxBoxes possible and for free to boot! Although, let’s be honest, some of the boxes, I would pay to try. They should look into creating a subscription service.
On a side note, I would like to express my displeasure that Walmart bought out Luvocracy, which was total bull-crap and they basically did nothing with the site. They just wanted to kill it. Did anyone else luv Luvoracy before Walmart? I’m super sad and mad beyond belief. le sigh
On a brighter note, I have started a new series called “Fresh From Le Press” for all of the free press products that I receive to review on my blog. I’m not doing this to brag. I am doing this to be as transparent as possible with all of you. If it has that title, I received it in exchange for an honest review. I’m not blindly endorsing any of these products. I even will state in the post that I received something for free, but that all opinions are my own. Now, let’s keep that in mind as I continue.
I received this box of goodies free from Influenster in exchange for an honest review. So, here are the goodies that I received!
The box is a good compact size. I definitely didn’t think it was full with this much stuff!
#DLVoxBox will be my most popular hast tag for awhile as I try all of these products for the first time. Everything is totally new to me, so rest assured, I am not already biased towards any of the products. I like how on the back of the card, it lists the products you are getting and a little bit about each one, so you really get introduced to the new product you are getting without having to do extensive online researching. cough Ipsy cough
Kiss Looks So Natural Lashes in 60484 KFL02, 1 pair for $3.99 USD
I cannot wait to try out these false lashes. I am going to be trying them out tomorrow and I will let you know what I think of them. They are supposed to be more natural looking due to the tapered ends, but it is kind of hard to believe that other lashes do not have this shape. I guess, I’ll find out when I try it. It is also supposed to feel like you aren’t wearing false lashes and are super soft. I have never tried false lashes before, so it will be an adventure for sure as well as an experience.
Softlips Cube 5-in-1 Lip Care in Fresh Mint, 0.23 oz for 3.49 USD
I believe that this is supposed to be a dupe for EOS lip balm, but at its price, its not a dupe but an alternative since they are the same price. This lip balm has SPF in it, which is always nice during the warmer months or if you spend a lot of time outdoors. The lip balm promises to hydrate, replenish, smooth, protect, and add shine to your lips with its lip perfecting technology. I just opened the packaging and smelled the lip balm. It smells exactly like my Revo [knock off EOS] lip balm in peppermint. It applies on the same, which is very smoothly and my lips got that tingly feeling that mint tends to have on your skin. I like it, but the Walgreens brand beats Softlips with its price. This is definitely heavier than the EOS as well. If you are not a fan of the EOS, Softlips is still worth a try as a nice simple moisturizer for your lips.
Pilot FriXion Clicker 07 in Blue & Black, 2 for $5.75
First off, I love how it came with a $1 off coupon, just in case I love it to make the first purchase cheaper. I love pens, a lot. These are fun and a cool concept that works. Remember how erasable pens were all the rage? Yeah, they have it finally perfected. These are gel ink pens that erase from the heat of rubbing the rubberized end against the page. I think that these pens would be brilliant for blogging, since I love the smoothness from the gel ink when writing and it takes less pressure to have the ink run my words. I love the design of the pens as well. I just love trying out new pens. It is a passion of mine. I am a total pen snob. No ball point pens for me…unless they are decorative.
Luden’s Watermelon Throat Drops, 25 ct for 1.49 USD
You can only buy this at Target, which is a bit of a bummer, because the closest one to me is fifteen miles away. This new flavor is super yummy! It tastes like watermelon sherbet ice cream by Friendlies. This tastes better than your average throat drops that are laced with medicinal undertones. Luden’s just tastes like candy, but do not be deceived. It does contain medicine Now, I do not have a sore throat, so I cannot say, if it does work or not. It does taste great, though, like the packaging claims.
The Softlips does have a coupon for $1.00 off that was hiding under those cough drops! Now, that I have a coupon. I will probably be picking one up, if I continue to enjoy it.
Sinful Colors No Text Red, 0.5 fl oz for 1.99 USD
For some reason, I thought that this brand was more expensive. The quality is very high end for something so cheap. I like that the color has a movement behind it. I will be using this for my next manicure and join the movement. There is not much to say about this nail polish until I put it to the test. Stay Tuned!
Air Heads Bites in Fruit, 2 oz for 1.29 USD
I never really liked the sticky taffy like texture of air heads, so I am interested in trying the bite sized candy to see what all of the fuss was about growing up about this candy. I never see this stuff anymore, so I didn’t know that Air Heads were still a thing. I’ll let you know how they are, when I treat myself to it.
Playtex Sport Fresh Balance Tampons in Regular, 16 ct for 3.99 USD
Not to be weird or anything, but these smell so fresh and flowery. Lol. I really want to try these after I read the box. The tampon itself is shaped more like a cup instead of a stick. I always found that regular tampons didn’t work for me, so maybe these will be better for me. Now, I’ll just have to wait for Aunt Flo to come around. I am very irregular since stopping my birth control. I actually might have a hormonal imbalance since I haven’t had a natural period this year. I had a chemically induced one three months ago and nothing since then. And no, I’m not pregnant that has been ruled out by my doctor (kind of impossible when you aren’t having sex). So, I don’t know when I’ll get to try this, but I will have it until then. Who knows? I may be a tampon girl after all! #failwhitegirl.
So, that is everything that I got in my VoxBox. I’m so excited about all of these products. The total worth of this box was 21.99 USD and I paid nada. I love it! Stay tuned to my blog for upcoming reviews on all of these products. And I would like to thank Influenster again for supplying all of these products for me to test.
