Something Blue VoxBox
I was SO incredibly excited when I got this VoxBox. Mainly because in my two or three months of being with influenster, I hadn't qualified for one yet! Huzzah!
This box was wedding themed, thus the Something Blue...
Inside were things that would help you along with your wedding. I'm already married but I can see how all of the products would really be a bonus on your wedding day.
Luster NOW! Instant Whitening Toothpaste: $7.99
I actually am trying to whiten my teeth. I didn't really care about my teeth when I got my braces off soooo that is definitely reflected. I really want to go get them bleached, but that's $304 dollars. (Yes, 304. Exactly. Weird quote, right?) $7.99 is a lot cheaper. This is supposed to instantly whiten your teeth and the effect is supposed to last for hours. From what I understand, it won't whiten your teeth forever, but just for a few hours. I think. So, I guess if I was going somewhere awesome, I would want whiter teeth to wear red lipstick, right? Perfect for a wedding or special occasion.
HERE IS THE BUMMER
It doesn't work.
I was going to take a before and after--but honestly--there was no difference so I didn't see the point. Talk about a let down.
Q-TIPS Precision Tips $2.59-$3.35
I LOVE these q-tips. They are perfect for fixing eye liner, and especially helpful in making the perfect cat-eye. I use them mainly for eye makeup, but I know others use it for fixing lipstick/gloss & eyebrows as well.
Dr. Scholl's For Her Ball of Foot Cushions $6.99
I will be honest, I didn't use these this time. But I can advocate for them because I used them a lot in theatre. When you are in heels for a long time, it makes the burden a lot easier on your feet. So, for a bride who has to be on her feet for 12+ hours, I am pretty sure these babies would help you out.
Urgent RX Fast Powders $1.39
These aren't for me. I have an issue taking any kind of medicine that I can taste. I have never been able to have chewable medicine or liquid because they make me puke. These definitely aren't for me, haha. But I can see how that would be advantageous to a bride who has the stress of pulling off the perfect wedding and or nursing a hangover (if you are drinking at your wedding...).
Kiss everEZlashes $4.98 for a duo pack
I LOVE eyelashes. I LOVE THEM. Before I got pregnant, I wore lashes ALL the time. My lashes are so small and pitiful. Well, not really. But they aren't va-va-voom. I like va-va-voom. But when I got pregnant--psssh ain't no body got time for 'dat. Since then I just can't justify it, especially since I put make-up on 3 out of the 7 days of the week.
Influenster sent me two packs of different thickness. I love the thick ones, but they are too fancy for my every day life. Maybe when Daniel and I go on a date, our dating/I met you anniversary is coming up-I will use them then.
For this I used the lighter lashes that looked va-va-voom but not as dramatic.
These lashes are easy to put on, and come with a nifty applictor that actually WORKS. It made it super easy to apply them. However, I don't like the eyelash glue. It comes off easy enough but I don't know. I can feel it the entire time I am wearing it. Does that make sense? But over all, successful lashes.
Basically I freaking loved everything in this box.
I received all of these products from Influenster for free in exchange for an honest review/opinion. But that doesn't mean that the above statements aren't true. I wouldn't say it was awesome if I didn't think it was.
