Influenster VoxBox

This post is going to be a long one. I received the Influenster VoxBox this May and will now review the products for you.


Item One: Bath and Body Works Body Spray - Paris Amour


I wear perfume every day, but I never wear body sprays because the smell fades quickly. I did not like the smell of this, but everyone has different tastes and I'm sure some people would like it.

 Item Two: Sally Hansen Salon Effects: Nail Polish Strips



Sigh. This was made with real glitter. That means that when you try to get a straight edge on your nail by filing it, the entire piece of glitter comes off, along with the stick nail strip. Can you see that on my thumb?
It also means that it was a huge pain in the ass to remove.
I do not like nail strips as a rule because I can never make them look as good as I'd like.

 Item Three Soy Joy Bar - Blueberry

I had already take a bite of it when I realized I need to take a picture of it. Lol. These are gluten free which is good for those that are allergic to gluten. They tasted pretty bad though. One bite was all I could take.

Item Four Aveeno - Daily Moisturizing Body Wash



Ah, Aveeno, how I love you. This smells very nice and I've been using it when I shower. Does it make "visibly healthier skin?" I have no idea. I can never tell a difference with that stuff.

Item Five Sheer Cover - Concealer Fair/Medium (the lightest they have)

As you may be able to tell, my skin is very pale. When it comes to face makeup, I am always the lightest color. Normally number 01 titled Porcelain or something. 
Basically this concealer wasn't light enough to work for me. If you don't already know this, the rule for face makeup is that it should match your skin tone before you begin to blend it in. 

Item Six Chapstick - Lip Shield 365 


This chapstick has SPF 50+. Can someone tell me what 50+ means? Is that like, SPF 52 but they thought it'd be stupid to put that so they just use the plus sign? 
Anyways, this smells like a combination of citrus and sunscreen and I actually like it. It feels good on, and the smell/taste isn't too strong.

 Item Seven Dr Sholl's For Her Ball of Foot


I haven't tried this yet. But I will. Maybe.

Love, Bethany

  2. ^ I agree with Sue. I've never heard of this box before but it seems a bit odd :P Some of the items seem good but nothing super 'exciting'. Are you going to be repurchasing it? Hopefully next month's will bring some good finds (:

  3. hm. that sucks that half the products you got weren't to your liking...

    the only good things I can say are aveenooooo is great=]

    and the dr. scholls you might like, if you're a heel wearing girl. I've tried them. and they don't stay stuck in the shoe, but they are comfortable. They stay when your foot's in the shoe, but if you like get wasted and pass out and then have to drag your ass home the next morning, you might find you've misplaced this insert thingy..
    i'm just sayin..

  4. I got this box as well. Hated the Soy Joy too, ugh. I got different nail polish strips but that totally sucks that they are made from real glitter. You would think it would just be a design that looks like glitter. And I have no idea what 50+ means but thank God for that chapstick because my lips were the only part of my body that didn't get absolutely fried today!

  5. OOh thats awesome! They sent me emails telling me I'm getting the Mom Voxbox, so I'm looking forwards to that!

  6. Oh my gosh... didn't anyone else look at "Influenster" and immediately think "Influenza"? Terrible name. It sounds like a vaccine. Can't say anything grabbed my attention in this either, although like you, I adore Aveeno products.

  7. I agree with The Lacquer Tracker, it is a funny name.

  8. omg I saw some nail strips the other day that were like the old school holographic squares design. I *almost* got them until I remembered that they're $10 and last a week and as much as I like the design I'd like it even better if the strips were super cheap or reusable.... LOL Maybe one day they'll figure out how to do that for those of us with short attention spans. ;)

  9. I have yet to see one of these boxes that is full of great stuff lol I personally feel they are a waste of money! I love the polish you're wearing though :)

  10. SPF 50+ means the SPF is at least 60. I know the sweet spot for SPF is between 30 and 50. The minute you put it on the SPF drops.

  16. The "real glitter" sounds like a fun idea, but yeah, kind of a pain to file down to length. Cute, though!
