My First VoxBox
If you follow me on Twitter or Instagram, then chances are you’ve seen my posts about my excitement over having received my first VoxBox from Influenster in the mail. I had been several bloggers in my circle posting about the Beauty VoxBox and decided to check out what Influenster was all about. I liked it and decided to join. And last week, I got an email saying that I was selected to receive one of their College VoxBoxes and it I did!
I wasn’t the only one excited about my College VoxBox either. Those little fingers to left in the picture above belong to Moo. She gets excited when the mailmen leave us packages. I think I have a mini review blogger on my hands already.
I was glad for this little information card that came with my goodies. Of course, I could identify everything in the VoxBox, but the information card provided a little more details as well as the retail cost for each product included. The goodies in my VoxBox are $19.58 total. Add NC taxes and that comes out to $21.39. Anyways, here’s a closer look at what I got.
At $5.95 for a pack of 10 individually wrapped strips, this product is not that bad. More importantly, while this Energy Sheets does contain caffiene, it’s also has Vitamin B12, Vitamin B6, Vitamin E and more. This works to help you get the boost us studying moms need without the crash and jiggers later. I liked these and even shared one with the Mr. I think he’s a convert!
|ImPress Press-On Manicure|
I’ve been wanting to try these since I saw that their spokeswoman was Nicole Scherzinger, formerly of the PCD. She’s such a little firecracker and I still think people sleep on her skills as an entertainer. Plus, with two busy kids I haven’t had my nails done professionally in over two years!! Yes, that’s 731 days folks.
Haven’t tried these yet because I’ll be cooking away for Thanksgiving. But as soon as the last dish is mixed and cooking, I’ll be putting these babies on. They’re only $5.99 for solid colors and $7.99 for patterns. My kind of pricing. A manicure at the salon with run you at least $15 for a solid color and $25 for a design. Plus, there’s no chipping or drying time to worry about.
|NYC New York Color Show Time Glitter Eyeliner Pencil|
I’ve never really worn a lot of eyeliner, but as of late I’ve been thinking about it. So, I was glad when I saw this one in my VoxBox. I can’t wait to test it out. Since, I’ll be taking a few on-campus classes, I need to make sure that my look is polished and has a glam feel to it. And nothing screams glam and fashion more than glitter, bling and sequins. This retails for $2.49 per pencil.
|Pentel EnerGel-X Campaign|
I love love love gel pens!! True story. When I first moved in with the Mr, I had a ton of them. He witnessed my obsession first hand. But after writing with one, he understood what all the fuss was about. I was already a Pentel gel pen fan, but this EnerGel-X is one smooth writing machine right here!
I dare you to find a smoother writing gel pen on the market. If you do send it to me and I’ll do a comparison test on the blog. Seriously, this pen will make taking notes and writing rough drafts feel less like torture. And the violet ink is nice too! Been signing my Christmas cards with this bad boy since today. For $1.90 per pen, I think it’s worth the money if you’re a pen person like me.
|Necco Tropical Wafers|
These are what Moo was trying so hard to get her hands on. She would have ate the whole roll in ten minutes if I let her. These little wafers are yummy. With flavors like Coconut, Passion Fruit, Strawberry, Lime, Banana and Mango, these wafers are good for those who like candy that is not overly sweet. Be on the lookout for this treat soon. Just $1.25 per roll, $24 per box or $37.50 per tub, I’ll be stocking up on some of these.
Overall, I’m very happy with my first VoxBox. I can’t wait to get more and try out some new products. Also, I’ll be back in the following weeks to post official reviews and pictures for the eyeliner and press-ons.
What product from my VoxBox would you be most interested in trying?
