You cannot pass up cool items that you can have fun with while it not costing you a dime! Right?
So when you join Influenster you have to take A LOT of surveys and review products but as time passes you will earn what is called a VoxBox. This is when a pretty box shows up on your porch full of goodies for you to try and hopefully fall in love with.
The GoodI recently received the #RoseVoxBox and as always it had some goodies inside for me! Let's take a look shall we!
The first item is Rimmel London's Scandaleyes Retro Glam mascara in black. I have never used Rimmel London's mascaras before and to be quite honest, mascara is a make up product that I struggle to find one that I love. I will say when I first opened the package, I was taken back by the wand. IT IS HUGE. But it turns out I like the size of the wand. The formula is not too wet and not too dry, which i a good mixture for me. I did not have a problem with it clumping up on me either. I found it to do exactly what the package said: "plump and fan out" my lashes! I have added this tool into my daily routine. It retails for $5.99 too!
The second item is Kiss's graduation polish in 58085 MGE01. I would call the color Starry Night if I named nail polishes for a living, but I digress. This product has an interesting concept behind it. You paint in the order of the bottles' numbers (1-2-3) and with each layer you only paint a certain amount of your nail. As you end the product you should be left with a gradient nail with some sparkle on the tip. The formula of the polishes are a little thin so multiple layers were necessary. I found it a little difficult to apply for two reasons a) my nails are short. I hate having long nails so deciding where the gradient cut offs should be was a little hard. b) painting my right hand was B.A.D. I did like the look on the nails that I did a good job with though. I am not giving up on this product. I am going to give it another whirl to see what I can do with my second go around. This is sold at Walgreen's for $6.99.
The I'll Make Em Work
The third item is Dr. Scholl's For Her Cozy Cushions which retail for $12.49. These are funky little cushions because they are like the inside of a pair of UGG boots. I really like them and if my feet weren't so wide, I would have said these were GREAT. But my feet are a tad fat if you will. So when I put them in my riding boots, they made the boots too tight so I couldn't wear them for comfort. However, I did have another genius idea. I love my Hunter wellies and why not add some more comfort to an otherwise complete rubber boot! These are supposed to add cushion while keeping your feet dry--so hey I had a good idea. I have them inside my Huntress wellies and next time it rains, I will be good to go!
The Not So Me
I am not reviewing these two food items negatively due to their taste. I did not taste them, I will be honest. I do not try new things. So if it is not something in my tastebud approval account already, then sorry it isn't happy. Yes I am aware, I am missing out on a bunch of the world, but that is who I am. So I will tell you about these two items but I cannot review them.
First up is the Lindt Lindor Mile Chocolate Truffle. The package says it is smooth, melting, and luscious. They turned me away when I read that when you break away the shell the filling starts to ooze out. Seriously it makes me gag. I do not like solid chocolate. I do not like surprises. I know I am weird, but a chocolate filled with surprise goo…not thanks. I will be putting this treat in a basket for someone to enjoy over the holidays. a 5.1 ounce bag will cost $3.99.
Lastly the BelVita crunchy Breakfast Biscuit is an energy source type bar with fiber and B-vitamins. Again nothing against the bar, but just not my style. I will put this in the basket with the chocolate goo. You can get a box of 5 packets of 4 biscuits for $3.69.
So that is my Rose VoxBox. If you liked what you saw, I suggest you go to Influenster and get started. A lot is awaiting for you!
