Influenster - Holiday VoxBox Reviews

Tonight, I am bringing you more than just nail products.  I signed up to review a variety of  different health/beauty products from Influenster.com who sends out VoxBox samples.  This is my first review for them and I hope I do them justice.

The first product for review is ImPRESS Press-On Manicure by Broadway Nails.  It is a new revolutionary way to apply nail polish featuring advanced technology.  You simply peel off, press on and your done, no dry time and they promise a salon-perfect manicure in seconds.  Im-PRESS comes in 36 colors and patterns, including trendy brights, fun prints, classic darks and animal prints.

I am going to bring you a special blog post about this product.  At this moment my nails are longer than the length of the press-ons, which in my opinion is not a bad thing.  How many times have you gone to use press-on nails or stickers and they were way too long?  Also, I have small nail beds and I compared these to my nails and I will be able to use almost all of the product.  I have expressed in my review that maybe they come out with two sizes which I haven't seen another company do yet.  By the way....don't you just love the package they come in?..... looks like a nail polish bottle!

Next is the SoftSoap Coconut Scrub Bar that is enriched with crushed coconut extract.  This bar soap gently exfoliates to renew your skin's surface while helping retain natural moisture for soft, supple skin.  It also comes in two other exotic fragrances:  Juice Pomegranate & Mango Infusions and Sweet Honeysuckle & Orange Peel.  Softsoap products are something I use in my everyday life.  I had already picked up this exact product and my family is on their 4th bar.  I am totally in love with the Coconut Scrub Bar Soap and can't wait to try the other 2 scents.

Montagne Jeunesse Fask Mask's are jam packed with the most delicious natural ingredients and are bursting with luscious juicy fragrances.  I received the Strawberry Souffle and it smelled delicious.  The other flavors available are Cucumber Peel Off, Passion Peel Off, Dead Sea Mud and Fruit Smoothie.  I do think there are other flavors available.  After using this product, I kept asking myself "why have you passed this product up so many times before?".  I won't anymore.  It left my face feeling wonderful and having sensitive skin, it's hard to find products than I can use.  I actually took a picture of myself using this product, maybe next time I'll be brave enough to post it!

New York Color Liquid Lip Shine straight from the city that never sleeps (sound familiar?..hint my blog name).  This Lip Shine is uptown style a with down-to-earth price.  With pure pigments that create a 3-D gloss effect and vitamin E that provides shine and moisture, this product is perfect to keep lips looking and feeling fabulous this season.  Comes in 10 shades from neutral nude, to berries & fuchsias.  

This product is worth the price!  It is really smooth and the colors are great.  I wore it for 3-4 hours before I needed to re-apply.  It was a little sticky/tacky at one point, but I've experienced the same with products that cost $20 each.  I may bring you a blog post just about this product later too.

I'm sure you've all seen this product while standing in a check out line.  It's Mentos Pure Fresh Gum, but did you know it also comes in a sugar-free variety?  Whether it's before a holiday party, date or meeting, pop Mentos Pure Fresh Gum for a quick refresh!  The crunchy outer shell conceals a green tea extract core that provides an immediate burst of coolness for long-lasting fresh breath.  Its unique container keeps gum protected in your purse or where ever you store your gum.  I had to hide this from my 18 year old daughter or I wouldn't have gotten to review it, she loves this even more than I do.  

Larabar is made from only 2-9 ingredients, each Larabar is a delicious blend of just fruits, nuts and spices.  Pure and simple, just as nature intended.  Larabar comes in 19 delicious flavors.  I received the Peanut Butter Cookie flavor, it took some getting use to the texture and taste as the consistency of the bar is very dense.  I love Peanut Butter and I'm sure I would have loved one of the chocolate flavors more.  If you are anything like I am and having a hard time going healthy....I am just now getting into health bars so this is probably going to take a while for me to totally come around and recommend these, but I do think they are worth giving a 2nd try, especially compared to the other brands I have tried already.  It is one of the better tasting brands.

Garden Botanika Heart Fragrance is described as a light, sheer breeze of fragrance to refresh you throughout the day.  Heart fragrance blends the sheer scent of floral with tones of cedar, citrus and a hint of musk.  This is Garden Botanika's best selling fragrance.  This fragrance is not for me, it did not go well with my chemistry.  I have seen more praises than not on it though, this will be passed to my daughter.

I hope I am chosen to review the next Voxbox that is a "love themed" Valentine's Day box.  I have thoroughly enjoyed stepped outside of my box and reviewing other kinds of products.  What do you think about my review?  Have you used any of the products above or have any comments about the brands?  You can also follow Influenster on Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/Influenster and on twitter at http://twitter.com/influenster.
