Influenster: J'Adore VoxBox2:04 PM
The J'Adore VoxBox from Influenster arrived a few days ago and I'm loving the big bag of chocolate! It actually was a pretty good box filled with things not only for me to try but essentially for the whole family.
For those unfamiliar with the VoxBox here's some information from Influenster.
VoxBoxes are boxes filled with complimentary products from your favorite (or soon-to-be-favorite) brands. Not all Voxboxes are created equal: some programs feature an assortment of products while others will spotlight one awesome brand. But make no mistake: All VoxBoxes are created awesome!Best of all, it's FREE! You don't have to pay a penny to join Influenster and you don't pay a penny for a VoxBox. There are some requirements though such as you do need to talk about the products on a blog, Twitter, Facebook, Vine or any other social media platform.
So what was in my J'Adore VoxBox?
When I opened my box and saw the lashes I literally laughed out loud. I received lashes in my Ipsy February Glambag and said I was "lashed out". Isn't it ironic that I would get yet more lashes in my J'Adore VoxBox? LOL
The Kiss Nails brand I'm familiar with but these lashes are new to me. I will eventually use these lashes and would consider purchasing these again since the lashes are subtle and look short enough to wear with glasses. I really like how subtle these lashes are and for teens who want to wear lashes, I think lashes like these from Kiss would work well.
I'm not a chocolate fiend like my kids but I do love Hershey Kisses from time to time because it's the perfect bite of chocolate. Once my kids saw the bag of chocolate that was it, I'm actually surprised that the bag made it through the weekend! LOL While Valentine's Day is long gone and finding the Valentine's Day themed bag is probably going to be hard to find now, the Easter bags should be out now. These I'll definitely buy again but I need a new hiding place. lol
For the hubby and my boys came a Vaseline Men Spray Lotion. I actually had my twin sons try it this morning and there is a very subtle masculine scent. It's actually a pleasant smell, which I was surprised since I thought it'd be one of those heavily scented men's lotions and it's not.
I've said it so many times in the past, the health and beauty industry complete ignores the tween boy market. While this product is aimed at men it's not bad for a tween boy who does not want to use products meant for children and who can't use products for adult men because the scents are just too strong. My twin boys love lotions, they love lip balm, they love certain bath products. All three of my boys love to take showers and use various products but what I find difficult are finding products are not feminine smelling yet not overpowering. With body wash I'm loving the Ivory body Influenster sent out last year and it looks like I'll be adding this lotion from Vaseline Men to their routine. Now if only I can find a deodorant that's not overpowering yet strong enough for their tween boy odors.
I'm familiar with the British line Boots but the Botanics Shine Away Ionic Clay Mask is completely new to me. From Boots website:
Suitable for all skin types but particularly good for oily skin to combination skin, this face mask actively removes impurities and deeply cleanses. Enriched with clarifying willowbark.I can't wait to try this since I have combination skin that sometimes leans towards the oily side. I love products that help take the shine away so I'll be giving this a try tonight.
John Frieda is another company I'm familiar with but the Ease 3-Day Straight Flat Iron Spray is a new product for me to try. I don't flat iron my hair often but my eldest and youngest daughters do. I'll pass this along to one of them since this is suppose to help keep hair straight and smooth up to three days. Maybe I'll get more sleep since it means Kat won't be in and out of my bedroom at six in the morning looking for hair products to use when she's flat ironing her hair.
- Transform curly, frizzy hair into a straight, smooth style that lasts up to 3 days*.
- Revolutionary heat-activated formula wraps each strand to seal in longer-lasting straightness without weighing hair down. Protects against heat damage and blocks frizz.
- Keeps hair glossy, smooth, and swinging with body.
- With Keratin.
- *or until your next shampoo if less than 3 days.
Tea! I love tea and I'm familiar with the Red Rose brand but I typically don't buy Red Rose since I'm so picky about the flavors I drink. I'm more of a black tea or mint tea or apple tea girl but I do drink almost any type offered. Creme Caramel and Lemon Chiffon are two flavors I'm not familiar with but I'll give these a try.
Overall, it was a great box with something for everyone in my family. There are two things in this box I know I will purchase - Hershey Kisses and the Vaseline Men lotion. I'll probably buy more Kiss Lashes since I love lashes (just tired of getting them in my Ipsy Glambags) and these look like lashes I can wear with my glasses. The rest... well the rest are a wait and see.
I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes.
