I joined Influenster a while ago, not really thinking I’d get to review anything anytime soon. Surprise! I do!!
They recently sent me the Surf’s Up Vox Box. This is my first box from them, and it was full of new products I couldn’t wait to try. Honestly, this whole blogging thing is a lot of fun. *grin* (Don’t worry, I have a few non-product review posts scheduled SOON!!)
I was super excited to get my box, and even more excited when I opened it. Check it out!
Jamba Juice Smoothie Kits: I’m going to be honest…I’m not really into smoothies. I just don’t enjoy drinking my fruit. That said, I do enjoy free coupons, and I know a lot of people who love Jamba Juice, so I’ll try it. When, I don’t know….but soon.
Hawaiian Tropic Silk Hydration After Sun: This is definitely going to Mexico with me! Love a good after-sun lotion, and this smells wonderful. Can’t wait to try it.
First Aid Shot Therapy: What’s funny is I got the box the day before Wing and Beer Fests, and totally forgot about it when I really could have used this. I’m taking it to Mexico with me….I’ll report back.
SinfulColors Nail Polish in OceanSide: By now you guys should know that I really enjoy nail polish. And I especially enjoy free nail polish. Sinful Colors is a cheap brand ($2 a bottle at Walgreens), but I own several of their polishes. They generally have pretty good consistency, and last well enough. This one is no different….plus it’s a gorgeous color.
Covergirl Bombshell Curvaceous by LashBlast Mascara: I always love getting full-size products (who doesn’t?) and I really like getting mascara samples. Mascara is one of those things that I’m constantly searching for. Maybe I’m just picky. So this was exciting. First thing to say…the tube is HUGE. Enormous. And awkward. Honestly, I’ve stabbed myself in the eye twice. The premise behind this mascara is that there’s two separate steps/formulas. Step 1 volumizes, thickens, and curls. Step 2 intensifies.
Hmm…. so Step 1 doesn’t volumize. Doesn’t thicken. Does curl. And lengthens quite nicely. Step 2 does intensify. Honestly, though, it’s like Step 1 is brown mascara and Step 2 is black mascara.
I don’t hate this. But I’d never buy it. For one thing, two steps is way too much. And I had to use multiple coats each step. Not worth the trouble. For another, it makes my lashes so heavy. And it clumps. Now, I will say they look pretty good – but they feel horrible. And it’s hard as hell to get off.
So that’s it….my first Vox Box. Fun!!
I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes.
