My first Influenster VoxBox!

Jul 27, 2012

I owe so many of my awesome findings, Influenster being one of them, to Twitter! So many of my friends were talking about all the goodies in their Spring VoxBox that it got me really curious and I ended up signing up immediately. Who doesn't love getting samples to try in exchange for a review? So fun! When I signed up I was expecting to not get selected for a long while but when they came out with their next box, the Mom VoxBox, I was selected! Thanks, Violet for putting me in the mom category! ha. 

So when you're selected to receive a box, they e-mail you only a general description of what you'll receive like "1 sweetener product, 1 food product..." etc. and since I love surprises, I was soooo excited to get my box. When I got it, I wasn't dissapointed!

 I didn't take a picture of each product individually but here's everything I received!

First thing I tried (and I shared half with Ronnie) was the Quaker Oats Soft Baked Oatmeal Cookie. I'm a sucker for sweets and a sucker for soft cookies! The cookie was soft and fresh but the flavor was just so-so. Ronnie agreed. They weren't bad though and since they're a quick and easy snack for taking to work, I might consider buying them.

I was super excited to get the Dish Drying Mat but I think Ronnie was more excited because he immediately stole it and took it to the kitchen to set up. We LOVE it. We so deseperately needed something like this! I'd always seen them at Bed, Bath & Beyond so I'm happy to finally have one. We have a dishwasher but honestly just prefer to wash dishes by hand (I know, crazy) so this has been perfect for the constant pile of dishes we're washing. I highly recommend it! (Please ignore our 80's style countertops. They're getting changed soon!)

Next up were the two packets of Nektar Honey Crystals. Sorry to say, I have yet to personally try it. Ronnie tried a packet though because he likes honey in his coffee so that's how he tried it. He said he couldn't taste the honey at all. I bet if he'd used both packets it would've made a difference but I banned him from that since I want to try one myself. ha. Apparently one packet of the crystals equals one teaspoon of honey. I'm curious to try it soon!

I'm a big tea drinker so I was excited about the Stash Superfruits Tea Sampler. I've tried both the Goji Berry and Pomegranate Raspberry flavors and the Pomegranate was my favorite. I tried one hot and one cold and they were both yummy that way. Of course we drink a LOT of iced tea here in Texas so I think I just prefer drinking these cold.

The one product that I was MOST excited to try was the ImPRESS Press-On Manicure by Broadway Nails. Sad to say though, it was the only product that totally dissapointed me.

I wasn't excited about the color they sent me (Stiletto) but that's not a big deal of course. The nails were easy to apply and didn't take long at all (great with a baby in the house) but I could just tell that they weren't going to last me long. Even though I'd cleaned and dried my nails beforehand! I literally completed the nails then got up to grab my camera and when I looked down, I was missing one nail from each hand. ALREADY!? I was so irritated and tried to put them back on but they had lost all stickyness. I was bummed and yanked them all off. Total fail.

Ignore the sticky goop on my hands, it was leftover from the IV I had while in the ER!
Moving on from the dissapointment (ha), I was also really excited about the DenTek Flossers because I'm a lunatic about my teeth and fresh breath! I've always used Oral-B floss but I really liked how sturdy these flossers were and they got the job done! I think I would buy more of these because they're so convenient to keep in my purse for a quick floss after eating when you're out and about.

I wasn't sure at first about the Ivory Bar Soap because I'm just so loyal to my Bath & Body Works body washes (and sometimes Caress bar soap) but I really liked the scent! I read in reviews that it's great as a facial cleanser so I tried that for a couple of days and it was great for removing make-up however I didn't continue that because I was nervous about drying out my face. That's just been my experience with bar soaps so I switched over to using it as a body soap and I'm liking it so far!

So there you have it! My first ever VoxBox, yay! Thank you, Influenster!

And super exciting, I received an e-mail from Influenster a couple of days ago saying that I've been selected to receive the Latina VoxBox! I should have it in the next couple weeks so reviews to come on those goodies soon!
