I recently got the Influenster Twinkle Vox Box. This box had a variety of brands and items for me to try.
Hills Bros. Hot Cocoa K Cups – I have never heard of this brand before, normally getting Swiss Miss or Abuelita brand hot chocolate. I also don’t think I have ever used hot chocolate k cups before. I got a milk and dark chocolate flavor. I have yet to try these, but they will get used!
Reynolds Slow Cooker Liners – This is not a very exciting item but it is useful. We haven’t used our crock pot in ages but it’s possible we will break it out again to test these out.
Covergirl So Lashy! Mascara – Woo hoo for beauty items! This has a very interesting brush which I have never seen before. It looks like it will really separate your lashes. I’m still working through a few tubes of mascara but I generally like the Covergirl brand and will use this.
Not Your Mother’s Clean Freak Refreshing Dry Shampoo Unscented – I you have read my post on dry shampoo, then you know that this is my favorite affordable brand. I love having this travel can for trips. I prefer the scented version because it smells so fresh and good, but I can’t complain about this. I love it because there is no white residue and it really leaves me feeling fresh and not oily.
Aquation Daily Moisturizing Lotion – I have never heard of this brand before but it seems comparable to CeraVe or Nivea. This is one of the only full size products in the box (I wish it had been the dry shampoo) and I can’t say I’m all that excited about it. I don’t use lotion a lot but when I do I have lots of bottles of Bath and Body Works scented options. I don’t have sensitive skin so unscented isn’t really necessary. I gave it a try though and found that it was almost a gel consistency and gave an adequate amount of moisture without being greasy.
Oreo Thins – I was hoping this wouldn’t be a travel pack! I like Oreos but never buy them and have always wanted to try the Thins. You get the same great taste but with less calories! What could be better?
Axe White Label Body Wash – There was also a travel body wash included but my husbad grabbed it before I could snap a picture to take it on a recent trip. That’s a brand we already use we knew what to expect. It would have been great to get full size, but travel was good too.
Overall this is a great mix of brands I know and new ones to try. It was mainly very practical items that will all get used in the future. I love getting to try new products through Influenster for free!
Recently I realized that Influenster sent me over $75 worth of product back in June and I never blogged about it! Flowerbomb by Viktor & Rolf has been one of my favorite perfumes for a while but I’ve never owned it – just tried samples I think. The fragrance notes are: Sambac Jasmine, Centifolia Rose, Cattleya Orchid, Ballerina Freesia, Patchouli. I think I normally don’t like a straight patchouli scent but it smells like there’s some vanilla mixed in. It’s a beautifully floral scent that’s a little dark – not light bright.
A few months ago they released this fragrance oil that you can layer with your perfume to make it last longer. Influenster sent a full size of it (worth $75!!!) and a small dabber bottle of perfume. At the time I didn’t even realize the value, but I decided to use this the other day and a coworker commented on how good I smelled and said she could tell it was Flowerbomb. She said she used to work in fragrance and knew it was pricey. I looked it up on Sephora and sure enough it is! The oil comes with a dropper to help distribute just a little bit. This really is the best product I have gotten to try through Influenster. I have recently seen them working with some very high end beauty brands like Becca, Bite Beauty and Burberry. I would love to get some of those boxes. If I start blogging again, maybe I will!
