I am one happy gal! My first voxbox from influenster arrived in the post yesterday! I signed up for Influenster in early May and received my Invite within a week (maybe it was a couple of days) on May 13. Exactly a week after I officially became a member, I received an email to take a pre-qualification survey for the Sunkissed VoxBox. About another week and a half later, I received an email telling me that I would indeed be receiving the box! My very first box just three weeks after joining!
Their website states that
Influenster is a free -to-join community of invited trendsetters who live to give opinions of products and experiences. Influenster creates links between brands and members to reward participation and influence future products.
I haven’t been a member for long, but I love writing about products that I use, I love learning about products, and I love filling out surveys. Most importantly, I love receiving free stuff that I can try out. Part of it also involves connecting your Influenster account with your social media accounts (i.e. twitter, fb, instagram, ya know). Already, I’ve changed my perceptions about some products. So if you’re interested in any of those things, you should definitely try it out!
Dr. Scholl’s For Her High Heel Insoles, Value: $10.99
I love Dr. Scholl’s insoles… I actually can’t wear high heels due to an ankle problem, but these should also work in my sandals/flats. I’ve already inserted them into my work flats. It’s a bit weird today, but I’m going to try again tomorrow 🙂
Olay FreshEffects BB Cream in Light to Medium, Value: $12.99
I was definitely excited about this product! See my photos below.
The cream itself (left photo) is a little more runny than I expected. I need to remind myself to squeeze the tube gently. While it doesn’t feel thick, it definitely makes the face feel a little more oily. The cream seems to be maybe 70% moisture/30% coverage… I was hoping for a little more coverage. Okay, so those were the cons. Now for the pros:
- THE SCENT IS AMAZING! What is it?! It definitely smells like summer! Gives me a cool, refreshed feel!
- It does make my skin a little more radiant (right photo)
- Creates a blurred look, to cover up small imperfections. Some of the redness on my cheeks aren’t as visible.
My final verdict? I probably wouldn’t buy this brand myself! There are better drugstore BB creams. However, I will use this complimentary tube that I received. It’s got SPF and I love the scent!
Goody Ouchless Ribbon Elastics, Value: $3.99-$4.99
I love these types of hair elastics! However, most of the ones I’ve seen cost $3.99-$4.99 per band. I love that Goody is making them now! I’ve always worn their hair products… they work and they are nice to your wallet!! I love that I got dark, neutral and bright colors (purple, brown, silver/grey, black, pink/red).
SinFul Shine with Gel in MyKryptonite, Value: $2.99
I really don’t use nail polish that often…. which means this IS PERFECT (why spend > $10.00 for something you don’t use much? haha)! Seems to be getting good reviews and at such a great value?!
Whoot! So satisfied and content with my very first VoxBox. I don’t remember how I found out about influenster… but whoever happened to be the author of the blog I was reading when I found about about influenster, I thank you very much! 🙂 And I love that I will use every single product. Did you all get this box? Or did you get one of the other boxes? What did you think? Will you be joining?
