Influenster Bride to Be VoxBox!

Wednesday, October 24, 2012

So today I am going to tell you all about my Bride to Be VoxBox!

What in the heck is that you ask? Well, let me tell you!

A few months ago I stumbled on a review of a product on another blog and she mentioned how she received this product complimentary from Influenster and got to try it out. Uh, what? You got that free and get to try it before everyone else Let me just check this out. So I found out a little bit about the site and signed myself up.  BECAUSE IT'S COMPLETELY FREE! Three months later I had my VoxBox!

Influenster is meant for us social media beings, to try out products (sometimes before everyone else) and share them with the world. (If we so desire, of course but it is preferred) Either to get the brand out there or to just see what can be improved but it is meant to have you engage with other people's reviews and utilize your social media street cred. YOU get to utilize your influence to give the ins and outs of these products. TADAAAA!! INFLUENSTER!!

Ok, now you get these Vox Boxes based on your lifestyle and personality. How do they know? You take surveys, answer questions and give reviews on different products. This then leads you to earn an Expert Badge...example being I have Pop Culture (hello! love my celebs!), sweet tooth (can't deny that) and High Spirits (no explanation needed ;) On top of that get an Influenster score just to see how awesome you are at being active on their site.

And que in the fact that I am engaged...I get the first Influenster Bride Vox Box!! I was so glad I finally qualified for one and can't wait to get another! Now for the contents...

The first thing I tried was the Schwarzkopf Professional BC Repair Rescue Shampoo, Conditioner and Repair Rescue Sealed Ends
shampoo retail price..$18.99   conditioner retail price..$21.99   sealed ends retail price..$21.99 

First off, the smell is absolutely amazing! It's like putting perfume on your hair but also washing and repairing it at the same time. If that even makes sense. But I absolutely love this product. I still have some hot mess hair days but I see it improving little by little. Just a few things though...

Be careful not to use too much repair Creme though...made that mistake and I was due for another wash before the day was over.
And the conditioner is very runny and thin so I definitely see myself flying through that quicker than the shampoo...

Verdict: Definitely hope I can afford to keep buying this! Might see other types of conditioner though from this brand

Next up was the Rescue Remedy USA Gum  retail price..$5.99

The first piece was when I was in the middle of my wedding planning vacation week. I spent all day designing certain things and we were about to leae for the registry and I was just all ahh, you know? So in I popped a piece. I definitely felt a little calmer after I took it. Not a complete zen moment but a little more relaxed. I have had a couple of pieces after that whenever I felt overwhelmed and I would love to have it around when things really start to get intense with the planning!

Verdict: Takes the stress down a little bit and flavor is fine. But expect to be done with it after a few minutes.

Then came the DreamWater  retail price..$2.99

I had high hopes for this. I heard so many great things about this water, how it helps you have such a restful sleep you have the craziest dreams. So cue up the DreamWater when I had a 4am shift and an 8:30 PM bedtime. Taste was good I will say. And after about 5 minutes I could feel myself starting to droop the eyelids. So thumbs up for it putting you to sleep. However, not even 3 hours later and I was awake. Fell back asleep then up again another few hours later. Not exactly the restful sleep I had hoped for with this.

But I wanted to give it another try because I was in desperate need of a good restful night's sleep. Plus, psyched for those crazy dreams! Even on round two, I still woke up multiple times. I'm not sure if it's my sleep issues just can't be helped or what but it's definitely good if falling asleep is your problem!

Verdict: Didn't work for me. Not likely to go back and try again. But definitely try if you are trying to get to sleep at night.

The one I haven't tried yet...Kiss EZ Lashes retail price..$3.99

I can't wait to try these but let's be honest, I can't very well wear these on a day to work. I'm pretty sure that would get a few stares and I don't have many places to go to try these. Might have to try on a random day at home with no where to go. Fake eyelashes do intimidate me though but I'm hoping the strings will make it a lot easier!

Oh, and this dating website, Ivy Date has not been used. But once again, anyone interested in a discount, let me know I can hook you up!

So there you go folks, my first VoxBOx. And make sure to check out Influenster if you love trying things and being able to give some honest reviews on products. That way other people can enjoy what you love!

****Once again, I received these products complimentary from Influenster.
