{January 6, 2013}   Influenster/Holiday Vox Box

 Influenster is this great site I discovered back in the beginning of December. You rate and review items you already have used before and unlock badges relevant to your lifestyle. Depending on how active you are, you may get chosen to receive different “Vox Boxes” they give out at different times. A Vox Box is basically a box filled with different goodies/freebies that you can try out and do reviews on which then can help your chances at getting more in the future. You have to request an invite from them to join, but I just filled out the form and within the next day, I got the invite!

Shortly after joining Influenster, I was told that I may qualify for their Holiday Vox Box and then I was taken to a survey that I had to fill out to see if I met the requirements. About a week later, I was told my box was on its way! YAY! I was so excited to see what it would have in it!

Well, I got my Holiday Vox Box in a few days before Christmas and to be honest, I haven’t had the change to use much of what I got YET, but I am excited to and just thought I would share with everyone what was in my box! I have pictures of everything I got except for 2 things cause I wait too long to take pictures! LOL

Oh and before I forget, I have the ability to invite 5 people so if anyone is interested and thinks they will actually be active on Influenster, let me know and I’ll try to invite you! 🙂

influensterI apologize for the small photos in advance. I took photos on my cell and sent them to my email. After you receive a Vox Box, you have to go to your Influenster page and check it in! Super simple and easy and there are many other tasks you can CHOOSE to do, one is do a blog post about it! 😉 BUT only checking in is required at first. Then at some point, they will get back to you to do a post experience survey and voila, easy as pie! Of course, the more you do, the more your chances in the future to receive more stuff!

The first item in my box(that I don’t have a picture of) was a Quaker Real Medleys Oatmeal cup. All you had to do was add hot water and microwave! My husband actually ate this for breakfast the very next day I got it BEFORE I thought to take a picture! I’m not a fan of oatmeal so I gave it to him and he LOVED it! I would definitely consider purchasing more of these for my husband to eat for breakfast!


The second item was a NYC New York Color Liquid Lipshine which I will definitely be using! I love the lighter color because I don’t like to look like I have tons of make-up on and I just really love lip gloss. Lipstick tends to dry up and feel ucky to me!

nailsThird was a Kiss Nail Dress which I haven’t used yet but want to try! You just peel, apply and shape and it’s supposed to last up to a week. I’ve been wanting to try these but the price is usually higher than what I like to pay so it’s cool that I’ll get to try them for free. If I had got to choose the design, I probably wouldn’t have picked the leopard one, but hey, it’s not too bad of a design!

Fourth was an EBOOST, which is this powder you add to water that claims to boost your mood, focus AND immunity with natural ingredients and NO crash. Well, I don’t have a picture because I seemed to have temporarily lost the packet! UGH! The flavor it came in was Acai Pomegranate but they also come in Orange, Pink Lemonade and Super Berry. I DO plan to try this sometime whenever I locate the packet! LOL

brushThe Fifth Item was a Goody QuikStyle Brush. Since this thing apparently retails for a whopping $11.99, I would NOT have bought it in stores. I prefer to spend under $5 for a brush. As you can see from the picture, I haven’t used it YET, but I do plan to try it out sometime. It looks like a brush but actually has towel material in between the bristles. This is definitely something I have never seen before! It claims to remove up to 30% of water as you style and is like a towel and brush in one. I have very curly hair and it tangles very easy so I am kind of wary that in brushing my hair, this might get stuck. Anyone else have that problem with certain brushes? Not to mention, my hair tends to dry fast on its own, but I do intend to try it out sometime…..but maybe after I have already brushed my hair out with a regular brush…LOL Just to see if it works!

soleThe sixth item was actually a card with a coupon code from Sole Society to get $25 off your first pair of shoes. It says I am allowed to share it with my friends so the code IS INFLUENSTER25 if any of you are interested! The offer expires January 31st, 2013. I have NOT had a chance to use this yet and this one will really just depend on money for me….After having to buy a new cell phone the other day, my money is pretty tight!

facemaskI also received a Montagne Jeunesse Face Mask in Aloe & Willow. The card that arrived with my box actually said Based on demographics, you may also receive this, so apparently my demo fit to get one! I never really use masks but I think it will be fun to try! At the least, I can scare my husband by wearing it, hehehe! 🙂

So…that was my Holiday Vox Box! Think it sounds pretty neat? Then either get me to invite you OR go to their site and ask for an invite! 🙂

Only a certain number of people qualify AND actually receive each box and they do several every year so I would love to have my friends get one and tell me what they got!

I was just notified recently that since I have a BookClub Badge, I will ALSO be receiving a thriller book from an up and coming author FREE soon that I will be able to read and review! I am thoroughly excited about that!

Have a great day, everyone!

Good for you! Those things sound great, Sharon. Happy New Year to you!

This looks pretty awesome . . . I’d love to check it out 🙂

Great! I’ll be sure to send you an invite later! 🙂

Yay! Thanks 🙂

“He couldn’t see why people made such a fuss about people eating their silly old fruit anyway, but life would be a lot less fun if they didn’t. And there was never an apple, in Adam’s opinion, that wasn’t worth the trouble you got into for eating it.” ~from Good Omens
