It finally happened, I signed up for Influenster! I had seen their name pop quite often throughout the blogosphere and instead of continuing to wonder what it was all about, I took the leap to find out for myself. In case you are not familiar with Influenster either, it is a site which is completely free to register for and use. The trick you ask? All they require/ask of you is be actively engaged on the site and by doing so you receive the chance to be sent a VoxBox that contains sample products to review. And let me just say, I'm very excited to be doing my first ever review post today!
About 2 weeks ago I received an email from Influenster asking me to participate in a survey. Last week I received another email from them letting me know I was chosen to participate in a summer themed box. *insert anticipation build here* On Sunday I received my Surf's Up VoxBox in the mail!
What was inside!
Hawaiian Tropic Silk Hydration After Sun ($2.99-2oz):: Summer fun is here which means sunburns are
probably in the future. A few Friday's back I had mentioned the topic of aloe and a blogging buddy of mine Carly suggested I try out this exact product. How crazy that I happened to receive it in my box! Although I haven't used this on my skin yet, I can tell you that it smells wonderful!
Sinful Colors Professional Nail Polish in Firefly ($1.99):: I've shared recently my pretty large obsession with nail polish so when I saw this in the box I was excited to add another color to my collection. I love this color for summer and honestly do not have anything like it. I instantly had to experiment! The application was mostly smooth with a few air bubble here and there that went away with another swipe of the brush. I think what I like most about this one is the subtle touch of sparkle it has. It is not over the top where it's obvious you are wearing sparkle polish, but there is just enough for when the sun hits the nails you can see a shimmer! All I needed to cover my nail was 2 coats.
Covergirl Bombshell Curvaceous by LashBlast Mascara in Very Black ($9.49-11.99):: I am always interested in trying out new mascaras as there are tons of different kinds on the market. When I read what this product was meant to do (volume, curl & intensity) I felt as if it was hand-picked for me! I have lashes that are on the longer side so a mascara with curl and volume is always appreciated. Now for trying it out! I loved how evenly the brushes made each of my lashes. I also only had one small encounter with clumping. I can tell you that this mascara lived up to its word of "curvaceous." My eyelashes seriously looked as if I had used a curler on them (see picture below).
First Aid Shot Therapy ($2.99):: When I first took this out of the box I had absolutely no idea what it was! After reading I came to realize that this was liquid pain reliever. It says that it is commonly used for headaches/migraines, sore muscles, and back pain. I tend to get my most severe headaches when there is sudden weather change such as; day one being sunny, bright, and clear while day two is dark, rainy, and gloomy. My plan is to save this for one of those days, but I'm intrigued!
Jamba Juice Smoothie Kits ($2.99-3.49):: The last items I have to share with you all that was in my Surf's Up VoxBox is a few coupons for smoothie kits by Jamba Juice. Smoothies are a must for summer so I can't wait to get to the store and use these. Additionally, I have never bought a frozen smoothie kit before, I usually make my own, and I can't wait to give it a taste!
Coupon #1 is for one free all natural smoothie kit - eye is on Razzamatazz
• strawberry, blueberry, and raspberry with non-fat yogurt
Coupon #2 is for $1 off one all natural or fruit and veggie smoothie kit - eye si on Green Fusion
• green apple, mango, pineapple, kiwi, banana, broccoli and spinach
