Why I love Influenster

As you all know I am part of the Influenster program and every few months or so I get a box full of goodies to try and review for free.

Really, that should be reason enough to love Influenster.  And it is.  But, I love the fact that the products I get to try are some great products and not just cheap junk you could buy at the dollar store, but good quality items found in top retail stores.

My favorite box that I received, so far, was the TLC VoxBox...which I reviewed here: TLC VoxBox.  That box was my favorite because it included ice cream!  No, there wasn't ice cream in the box, but a coupon for a free full-size sample of Breyers' Gelato.  It was because of this box that I have now become addicted to the Triple Chocolate Gelato.  It doesn't help that I won the brand contest and got 12 more coupons for free ice cream.

Really, I have been able to get lots of great stuff that I normally would never have tried.  This last box: ModaVoxBox(which is my second favorite) introduced me to a Hair Mask called Hair Food by Clairol.  I really love it and how my hair feels afterwards.

I've also gotten to try false eyelashes(that was fun!), dish soap, body wash, nail polish, mascara, chocolates and so much more.

I am so glad that someone introduced me to Influenster, I don't even remember who it was. (Thank you whoever you are!).  If you aren't a member and want to be, let me know.  It's by invitation only, so only let me know if you are serious.  They even have an Influenster App now, so sharing things from your phone just got that much easier.

Really, I can't express how much I enjoy being a part of the Influenster community.

Influenster Moda Voxbox

I love opening up my email and finding an email from Influenster that says I've been selected for one of their wonderful, fun-filled boxes.  Even better is when that box gets delivered and get to see what fun things I get to try!

Whatever could be inside???

So I got out my scissors and opened up this beautiful pink box.  Just look at what was inside!!!


Now, granted, there wasn't any ice cream with this box like the last one.  (In fact, I forgot to share that I was a brand winner in the last box for the Breyer's ice cream.  They sent my 12 coupons for free ice cream along with a $75 gift card to Target!  I've been enjoying their gelato almost every day.  It really is that good!) 

Anyway, back to this box and all it's little goodies.  It's actually got some stuff that I'm looking forward to trying out.  Everything was packed great, even the liquids had either taped lids, or were packed in plastic baggies.  Definitely, a much needed and much welcomed improvement.

The first thing I saw, which seeing as it took up almost half the box was hard to miss, were the Puffs Soft Pack Tissues:


At first I thought it was just a regular box a tissues, which it is, but it's not a box.  Hence it's name: Softpack.  No cardboard box to get all smooshed up.  It's a nice size too, I would say just shy of a full size box.  Might even be a full size.  Either way, these are going to come in hand in this house.  Plus, Puffs is the brand of choice.

The next to stand out was a big bottle of water packed in a plastic baggie:


I've never heard of this brand of water before, but I'm definitely looking forward to trying this out after one of my long walks with the dog.  I'm always thirsty after that and the fact that it is has "natural electrolytes" should help give me back a little bit more energy.  

After that I found a nice size bottle of Jergen's Ultra Healing lotion:


It says it is perfect for hands, but I'm looking forward to trying it on my arms, legs and feet as well.  Jergens usually makes great lotion, so I am sure I won't be disappointed with this one.

Just under that was full size bottle of Clairol's Hair Food:


I have to say I've never heard of this, but since I recently had my hair highlighted it can always use some good moisturizer. It says it's a Moisture Hair Mask.  I've heard of a facial mask but not a hair mask.  So, this will definitely be interesting to try. There was also a coupon included....bonus!

Tucked below that was a single serve packet of Swiss Miss Simply Cocoa:



I LOVE hot chocolate and swiss miss is my favorite "instant" brand.  As you can see by the packet you have to make it with hot milk.  It also came with a coupon.  Now all I have to do is wait for a semi-cool night so I can make it.  Living in Arizona we don't get a lot of those, so I may have to wait for a "not so hot" night instead.

I combined the last items together as they are all from the same company, Rimmel:


First up is the Scandaleyes Rockin' Curves mascara.  I've had a different Scandaleyes from Rimmel before and really loved it, so I'm looking forward to using this one!  Next to that is their Moisture Renew lip liner, which will be fun to play with as I don't usually wear anything on my lips.  Finally, is the Moisture Renew lipstick to go with that liner.  It's a nude color, which for someone who doesn't wear color on their lips was a perfect choice to send me.  I wonder how they knew???

So, there you have it.....all the goodies that were in this ModaVoxBox.  I don't think there is a stinker in the bunch.  Thank you so much Influenster and all the other brands for giving me the opportunity to try out all these great products!

Influenster TLC Vox Box

Has it really been 6 months since I wrote anything on my blog???  I have been slacking!!!  Life has been hectic here, but I think I'm finally starting to get into some sort of routine.....there's still a long way to go, however.

So, what could possibly bring me back???  Why a VoxBox from Influenster, of course.  It has been awhile since I've gotten one, so when I got the email needless to say I was "a little" excited......okay a lot excited.

It's always anybodies guess what you are going to get and so far every box I've gotten has had something in it that I've loved.  So....what's in the box you ask...well let me tell/show you:




Upon opening the box of wonders I found a few things I knew I would like and one in particular that I was looking forward to trying.  I'm going to save that to share for last though.





The first thing I saw, and you all can see as well, was the Neosporin to go and the Puffs plus lotion travel pack.   I'm going to have to go to the park to wipe some noises and fix some scraped knees it seems.  I do like Neosporin, I just usually don't get injured when I'm not home....however at home is a whole other story.  I'm sure I'll get plenty of use out of it.   Puffs plus lotion is actually my tissue of choice, so I'm glad to see that one in the box and it will definitely be going in my purse.  I didn't even know that Puffs made a travel size!




Next up was a bar of Ivory soap, Avon Anew wrinkle remover and a Shell rewards card.  Until recently we've always used Ivory soap (they were out when I went to buy more).  I really like the packaging of this one, very nostalgic.  I'm not one that has a skin regimen, so it will be interesting to try the wrinkle reducer from Avon.  I could always use fewer "laugh lines".  As for the Shell rewards card, well who doesn't like to save money, especially when buying gas!   Every little bit helps.

Now for the pièce de résistance. The one that, when I saw this was in the box, I got happy!!!

ICE CREAM!!

Yes, that is correct...ice cream.  Well, really gelato from Breyers, which is basically ice cream for adults.  I have been wanting to try these since seeing the commercials.  There was a coupon for a free sample, but when I got to the store I couldn't make my mind up on which flavor I wanted so I got them both.....hey, it's a 2 for 1 deal.  Now to hide these from the family so I actually get a chance to try them before they disappear!!


So there you have it, the latest box from Influenster.....now off to have some of that gelato!
