Happy Monday, indeed! I have finally received my Holiday VoxBox 2011 from Influenster and I must say... I'm LOVING it! This is my first [and I'm wishing not my last] VoxBox and I seriously have not been this excited since my 21st birthday. No, seriously! :D I had wanted to wait until my own box got here to see what goodies were inside, but I cheated a little and watched every. single. video. on youtube yesterday from other girls who were reviewing their products. You know what though.. it didn't make me any less excited! Once I got my box [after I opened it and pulled all the contents out] I posed it in my Christmas tree, because, you know.. this IS a HOLIDAY VoxBox!
After carefully flopping [two words thrown together, two totally different words...] down on my loveseat, I finally was able to ooh and ahh over the fabulous products that were inside the equally fabulous little box of wonders!
1.) imPRESS Press-On Manicure [in Love Bites, meeeeow!] OH. MY. GOSH. This is one of the products that my little fingers could not wait to try on! I was wishing upon every tiny star in the sky that I would receive this specific design and those star-keepers over at Influenster happened to grant my wish! [How did you all know?!] I've never been a huge fan of press-on nails, but look at these. Just look at them! The design itself was enough to make me reconsider everything I've ever known. Oh, and no glue is needed. My, oh my.. my heart belongs to my nails now.
(Also came with a $1.00 off coupon for my next set!)
2.) Softsoap Coconut Scrub Bar Soap
This right here is another oh my gosh moment because the smell of these soaps is enough to make me dream of faraway beaches somewhere in the Bahamas. I was a little nervous at first because my skin is sensitive and it gets dried out and irritated easily, but these little soap wonders do what they do perfectly, without me looking like a flaky lobster! I'm definitely quite fond of this brand and always have been, but they've gone over and beyond the call of shower duty! Now if only I could get my husband to use them..
3.) Montagne Jeunesse Face Mask (in Juiced Cucumber)
I've always loved face masks, especially ones with cucumber extracts [there's nothing more rejuvenating than the smell of cucumbers!]. My pores have always been a little more noticeable than most peoples, so I'm always looking for a way to keep them clean since makeup obviously does a great job at clogging them! This face mask not only smelled beautiful but made my skin feel AND look completely refreshed!
4.) NYC New York City Liquid Lipshine (in Nude York City) See previous blog post for complete review.
5.) Larabar (in Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough)
Everything about this fruit & nut bar is simple, including it's review. It's delicious, it's natural, it's healthy, I'm going to buy more of it! (Also came with a 'I <3 Larabar' sticker which I conveniently placed on my laptop!)
6.) Mentos Pure Fresh Gum
I'm actually chewing on a piece of this gum as I type and I must say... I'm really really liking it. I'm not really a big fan of gum in the first place, but the way this stuff makes my mouth feel and taste and smell is amazing. I'm a fan, but only of this certain gum!
7.) X Out Wash-In Treatment (Bonus Product)
I have acne prone skin and was kind of hoping this is the bonus product I'd be receiving. I've only used it once today, so it'll take a few more weeks of testing it to see what the final results are. I'll keep this updated with that information when the time comes!
