Influenster Holiday Vox Box(review)

   First, let me start of by explaining what Influenster is, in case you haven't heard about it. What better to describe what Influenster is than Influenster themselfs.

...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....Basically, Influenster is a place for culture junkies to come together and share their unique opinions of products and experiences. Active members of Influenster get exclusive access to deals, promotions, and swag from brands that thrive off the input (the good, the bad, and the ugly -- they just want to know what's up)... 

Taken from Influenster's website.

   So, basically Influenster is a website where you review products that you use in your daily life. You take surveys to show what your interests are(gaming, shopping, style...). To be a member, you have to have an active social life on and offline, or at least it helps to do so, because that way your opinion is heard and you influence other people, which is the point of Influenster.  

  In the Influenster community, you can earn and unlock badges that prove your influence in different topics by filling out surveys, posting reviews and engaging in other social media. Based on these badges you can either get discounts or you may also be invited to try out new products. These products are related to your interests and lifestyle.

  Now that I covered what Influenster is, a Vox Box is those products that Influenster can send to you for free, for you to try out and review.

  Before this Holiday Vox Box, I got a dish soap Vox Box. Sadly, I didn't review it here, because I had so many posts to go through and I thought it wasn't really related to the topics I cover in this blog. Then again, I can post random things sometimes, right? 

Yay! I got so excited when I found out I would be getting this box!

I got so much stuff!

Goody - QuickStyle Paddle Brush: I've been using Goody brushes for years and I was so glad I got a paddle brush, because I don't really like any other kind of brush. This brush is supposed to help your hair dry faster and detangle wet hair. The blue things you see in the picture are micro fiber bristles which are the ones that help the hair dry faster. I really hate blow-drying my hair, not only because it's bad for it and time consuming, but because it ends up being so poofy after I'm done. I'll take any help to speed up the hair drying process. I can tell this definitely helped drying my hair, I won't lie and say it was a HUGE difference, but I could tell a difference. It doesn't dry instantly, but it helps and I'll take anything that helps. One good thing also is that this brush is really big and brushes through a bunch of my hair all at once. It's really gentle with my hair and if I brush it with care(not with hate haha) it doesn't break it. I will keep on using this brush after I wash my hair and I can definitely recommend it if you want to speed up the drying process a little bit. This brush goes for $11.99.


Eboost: This powder drink helps boost your immune system, mood and focus, with natural ingredients. I can say it did help me wake up a bit, but here's the downside: I hated the taste; it was torture to drink it! Torture I say!! I guess I would have to try other flavors to know more. This one was Pink Lemonade probably the others won't taste as bad. It's not really that it tastes bad, I just don't like it. Eboost sells  these for $28 for a box of 20 powder packs, $39 for 30 and $39 for a box of 12 shots.

Sole Society $25 off: Sadly I won't be able to use this, but would've loved to. Sole Society has really cute shoes and I would love to grab some, but I've done lots of spending these last couple of months so I can't afford to pick this up. If anybody wants to grab the code I have, just email me or comment below and I will be more than glad to give you the code.


Kiss Nail Dress: I loved the idea of this and it does last, the only thing I did not like was the pattern on it. It's definitely not my type of thing, but if you don't have lots of time to do your mani this is definitely an option and it will last! Taking it off is a pain! So you can tell the glue is really good. This goes for $6.99.

Here's a little demonstration on how I applied it:

Place the product over your nail(not on the cuticles).

Bend the product down carefully so there are no bubbles.

Buff the edge of your nail.

And done! Haha first non messy mani for me, but then again I don't like these colors or this pattern at all.

Quaker - Real Medleys Oatmeal: I loved this! Almonds and peach are the things I totally love and I really like Oatmeal. I usually get heartburn from it, but this one didn't give me any heartburn. I loved the taste of this and the crunchiness the almonds added! This is so tasty and I might pick some up to keep at home for breakfast or for a quick snack! This is really affordable at $1.79 a cup.

NYC New York Color Liquid Lipshine in Nude York City: This is a really nice lip gloss, it's sticky, but not too much and adds a really sheer amount of color. I love the fact that it's a nude shade cuz I really like nudes(and the bf seems to like them on me). I didn't really love the scent much, it's like a really sweet caramel scent, but it's way too sweet. I think this is a great product, specially for the price ($2.49) and think is worth trying it out, however if you are not too into sweet flavors/scents this might not be for you.

I'm really happy I was able to try out all of these products, and I love the price for them, haha freebies! I so hope I get to try more products through Influenster (more make up yay!) and I will definitely give you my honest review on anything I get. Please remember this is my personal opinion, and what I might not like or might not work for me, might work for you.

Disclaimer: I received these products complimentary for testing purposes from Influenster, this is my personal opinion and I'm not being paid in any way shape or form to express it.
