Influenster I do VoxBox - Review - July 2015

I've been a member of Influenster for a few years now and this is the first box I have received in a while.  I was super excited when I saw that I had been accepted to review the I do voxbox this month.  If you don't know what Influenster is or recently found out about it and want to know more.  Influenster is a website that is based on product reviews, so if you love a product or hate a product you can share you opinion so that others know your experience.  When you create an account you will have snaps to complete which gives Influenster more of an idea of what you like, and this can help you with becoming chosen to do surveys to see if you match what they are looking for in order to review your own box.  Connecting your social media accounts also helps your score rise and give you more of a chance to receive a box to review yourself.  You can visit their website for more information on how it works.  


The first thing you receive in their boxes is a card telling you about all the products you have received.  This card tells you what the product is, how to use it, and how much it will cost you to buy it for the full size.

 Indeed Labs: nanoblur

 This is the first product I received which is a primer.  This product retails for about $19.99.  After using this I'm not so sure that I like it honestly.  I used it with the foundation I received and it just made my face look really cakey.  When applying by itself, after drying, it makes my skin feel very soft and smooth.  I'm wondering if trying it with a different foundation would work better but so far I'm not too happy with it. 

 COVERGIRL: Outlast Stay Luminous Foundation

This is the second product I received and retails for about $11.30.  I love trying new foundations to see if they work better with my skin than the one I'm currently using.  This seems to be a light/medium coverage.  One coat of this foundation is pretty light coverage but with a second coat it seems to build up the coverage a bit.  I received this in the shade 810 Classic Ivory and after applying a second coat thing I could have used a shade that's a tad darker at least during the summer.   This shade and formula seems like it would be better for winter months at least for me since my skin is more oily during the summer months and this foundation does give a dewy finish. I did apply this with a damp Real Techniques sponge and the application was nice except it seems to settle into the pores around my nose and I'm wondering if maybe I only use this once then maybe it won't do that since the cover is lighter with only one application.  So far my opinion on this product is so-so.

 COVERGIRL: Outlast Lipstick

This was one product I was really excited to receive because lately I've been loving lipsticks.  This product retails for about $9.80.  I received this in the shade Plum Fury.  This shade is really pretty and very pigmented.  A great thing about this lipstick is that it feels very hydrating and not drying like some lipsticks.  I've been wearing this lipstick since I received it and I'm still loving it.  The shade is build-able so I can put it lightly on my lips for subtle color or layer for a darker shade.

 Skinnygirl: Tasty Nutrition Bar

This is the next product I recieved in Dark Chocolate Almond with Coconut.  These retail for about $4.99 each. This bar was amazing which isn't what I usually expect from a nutrition bar.  I loved the flavors together and it just tasted like a really good snack that I could definitely see myself buying.  I was only able to eat about half of it though because my daughter wanted the rest of it, I can't wait to try the other flavors especially the chocolate chip cookie dough ones.

 Sahale Snacks: Grab & Go

The next item I received was another snack which was Classic Fruit + Nuts.  This product retails for $27.46 for 18 which is around $1.52 each.  This particular pack comes with dried apples, cranberries, roasted almonds, cashews and pistachios.  I was most excited about this pack because I love pistachios.  These were really good and I shared them with my 3 year old daughter and she loved them as well.

 Neutrogena: Hand Cream

This is the next item I received and it retails for about $3.99.  I can definitely say I've never used a cream quite like this one before it reminds me more of a Vaseline the way it looks.  This will be great for the winter months when my hands dry out really bad.  It's great because a little bit goes a long way, it doesn't leave a greasy feel but it does feel a bit weird on my hands.  The great thing about this product is that asides from using it on your hands it can also be used on your elbows, knees, face and lips.  I can definitely see myself using this more on my legs than anything so this is a great product for me.

 URGENTRx: Ache & Pain Relief

The last product I received is this packet which retails for about $1.38.  Although I have not used this product yet I think it's great to just throw in your purse if you're out and about in case you get a headache.  Which is great for me since I always seem to be getting headaches especially when it's hotter outside.

I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes all of which are my own honest and unbiased opinions.
