Influenster Summer Beauty VoxBox Review

Here's something a little different for you! I received something called a, "VoxBox," from Influenster. For those of you who don't know, Influenster is a website that allows you to review products and from doing so, earn "badges."

By joining this website, you have a chance to be sent a VoxBox which caters to certain badges you have earned. I was one of the lucky ones to be sent this summer's beauty voxbox!

Sally Hansen Magnetic Nail Color

I tried desperately to get an up close picture of the bottle but alas, it wasn't meant to be. I was surprised by how opaque this was after just one coat. It also had a pretty quick drying time which I was a BIG fan of. There is nothing worse than spending an hour doing your nails perfectly just to have them smudge!

The directions of this product are to apply one coat to all the nails. Then, apply a second coat one nail at a time, using the magnet in between painting each nail. I've found that the longer you hold the magnet to the nail, the darker the "magnet effect" will be.

Here's a photo of my nails after applying one coat of polish (before using the magnet).

Annnnd here is a photo after the magnet was used. For the two middle nails, I held the magnet for only 1-2 seconds. For the outer nails, I held the magnet there for about 4 seconds.


Hawaiian Tropic Silk Hydration Sunscreen

Most sunscreens I've used leave that sticky chalky feeling after application. This one does NOT! It applies and feels just like a normal lotion. It has a coconut scent and is the perfect size for throwing in your purse. I've really enjoyed trying this product out!

Sally Hansen Hand Creme

I just really wasn't impressed with this product. The product is called a creme. However, most hand creams are thick; this one is not. I used this product for almost two weeks and I did not notice a huge difference.

I did, however, like the citrus scent. It rubs into the skin quite nicely, but does not live up to the claim of providing 24 hour moisture. It wasn't a bad product by any means; it just wasn't the best I've ever used. I'll stick with my Burt's Bees Cuticle Oil and Vanicream Hand Cream.

Quaker Soft Baked Bar

My husband, Michael, LOVED this product! We each had half....well actually I had one bite and he had the rest since he liked it so much! This tastes very similar to an oatmeal cream pie. It's soft and chewy and as they suggest, great warmed up. We have already bought two boxes of these and I can see this being a staple in his diet!

Clear Scalp and Hair Beauty Shampoo/Conditioner

The back of the bottles say stronger hair in 7 days! I tried out this product for 7 days and I did see a difference. Before this product, I would run my fingers through my hair in the shower and would inevitably pull out some hair. After the 7 days, I noticed the amount decreased. The scent is nice and Influenster gave me a very deluxe sample. I used it for 7 days on my long hair and still have plenty of product left in the bottles.

The only problem I had is that it made my hair greasy. I don't know if this was because of the product itself or user error, but that was a big reason in not sampling the product for more than 7 days. Other than that complaint, I believe it really did strengthen my hair.

Product Samples from Always

 These samples came in a cute little cosmetics bag that I will definitely be reusing!

The sample contained two tampons (regular/super) one pad, and three pantyliners. Application for the tampons was very easy and I found the super very absorbent. The pad and pantyliners were very comfortable and stayed put.

I had a lot of fun trying out these products! If you have any questions, feel free to leave a comment!

Thanks for reading!
