YAY! So, in my last post, I told you all about Influenster, and yesterday I got my very first VoxBox! So very excited about this one, mainly because it is completely and totally free! All they ask is that you review the products, share pics, whatever you can do to spread the word about the products. Not too much to ask for a box of FREE STUFF, right? So, here’s what I got in my box:
Not the best pic, but you get the idea. The card that’s included has a list on the back of the products you receive plus descriptions and retail prices. Soooo, onto the products. First, behind the card, is a cute little pink bag filled with Tampax and Always samples (2 Tampax, 2 Always). Now, I’m not about to review them here, I think it’s a little weird and personal, and I will review on Influenster’s website. BUT, the bag that they came in is awesome! It’s super cute, and will make a great little make-up bag to put in my purse. BONUS! Next, I got a travel-sized bottle of Hawaiian Tropic Silk Hydration SPF 30 lotion sunscreen. Now, I haven’t gotten to test the SPF part of this, but I did put some on my arms just to see what it felt/smelled like. It does make my skin very soft, and it has that awesome sunscreen smell without being too strong. I know some people don’t like the smell of sunscreen, but I’ve always loved it, so I have to say I like this stuff. Next, I got a travel-sized Sally Hansen Nails and Cuticles hand cream. I feel like this is a product that I will have to use over time to really see results, but I have awful dry cuticles, so I have high hopes. I will say that I don’t like the smell of this stuff much. It reminds me of that orange super-duty hand soap stuff that they have in auto-shops and places like that. Hopefully it will work well and I can let the weird smell slide. The next thing in the box was a full-size Quaker banana nut bread Soft Baked bar. I haven’t tried this yet, but it looks super duper tasty! It says on the package that it’s great warmed up, so I’m going to try that, and we’ll see. If anyone asks, I will give an update on products I haven’t tried yet in later posts once I have had time to try them out. OK, so lastly, the product I was most excited about and also the one I’m the most skeptical of, the full-size Sally Hansen Magnetic nail color. The shade I got was Graphite Gravity, which is a cool metallic charcoal color. I like the color, but I kind of wish I would have gotten a brighter color. I feel like the effects of the magnet would have been easier to see. Anyway, it’s definitely interesting. I only tried it out on one nail just to see how it worked and what it looked like. It’s very easy to use, the color covers well and dries surprisingly fast, but I’m just not sure if I like the magnet effect look. I will play around with it a little more and see how I feel about it. Again, I think the effect would have maybe looked cooler with a brighter shade. So, there’s my first VoxBox! I LOVE IT!!!! First of all, you can’t go wrong with free stuff! Also, I like that these are products regular people use, that you can get at a drugstore or Wal-Mart or wherever. So if you find yourself with a little free time to play around on the computer, check this out! I highly recommend Influenster!
While we’re on the subject of free stuff (and stuff you can get at crazy discounts), everyone should check out Sneakpeeq. It’s so neat. Here is the breakdown of how it works from their website. I figured it wold be easier than trying to explain it myself:
At sneakpeeq, you’ll aways ‘Find What You Love!’ We bring you new discoveries every day, from gourmet foods to home products to accessories and apparel at prices so low we have to keep them private.
There are millions of wonderful companies creating amazing products just waiting for you to use them; all they need is a platform to be seen and shared. That is why sneakpeeq exists!
From exciting new products by brands you already love, to awesome products by brands that we know you’ll love (once you meet them), sneakpeeq is your destination for discovery! Shop with us and share something amazing! Our mission is to bring you the undiscovered at scandalously low prices.
In addition to introducing all things you love, we’ve hidden tons of fun badges and price reducing rewards beneath the peeq button.
Additional discounts will be held individually in your account from the badges and rewards you unlock. The more you buy, share, love, and peeq, the more incentives and surprises you’ll receive. Spend them at anytime, and pay your special price for that thing you love. Check back often because we have new brands and products asking to be discovered daily!
Sweet deal, right? And those discount and rewards they mentioned? Well, here’s a great example of that:
I got both of these totally FREE with discount badges! They retail for $13 a piece, so that’s a pretty sweet deal! I have also ordered a Rumba Watch and a Rich Hippie rollerball perfume (which also comes with a bonus rollerball for free..SO MANY FREE THINGS!), and I got them at insane discounts. And I did a lot of checking with the websites for the products I was interested in, to make sure that the retail price listed was correct and the discounts were really worth it, and they really, really are! Seriously, check it out! Here’s my link:
Coming soon will be my review of my Julep Maven intro box, which I got for a penny with a code. I will share the code when I get the box and review it. Also, I’m still waiting for my Birchbox! According to package tracking, it was delivered to me on the 12th. It is now the 18th, and I still don’t have it. I have contacted Birchbox and am waiting to hear back. So far I have had great customer service from them, so I hope they’ll resolve this so I can get my box and review it for you guys!
Love and peace ❤
