Inside the #SurfsUpVoxBox Influenster

:: products provided by Influenster ::

I’m probably the last earthling to post this #SurfsUpVoxBox via Influenster program. I say so because this package has been hibernating in the USPS vortex somewhere in Richmond, CA for almost a month. But all’s well that ends well. It’s here so let’s jump right into it.

To some of you who are still oblivious about Influenster, it’s a community of social media-savvy consumers who share their opinion and experience on products they get to try. No strings attached, just say what you like and don’t. There are certain tasks that you need to do, perform one or all,  it’s all up to you. #SurfsUpVoxBox is all about summer so here are the goodies inside that orange box:

Covergirl Bombshell Curvaceous Mascara. It has two brushes with differing formula to create dramatic lashes. Step 1 is supposed to thicken and curl lashes, Step 2 to seal the look. Fail. I did both and ended up with super clumpy and unflattering lashes. It was also very difficult to remove. What worked then? Use either 1 or 2 and stop at one coat or poor lashes get clumpy again. For reference, here’s how my lashes looked using 1 and 2 exclusively.

Jamba Juice Smoothie Kits. It’s a coupon so you have to go to the grocery store to redeem your freebie. Unfortunately, I haven’t spotted any Jamba Juice Smoothie Kit from my local Target or Walmart.

First Aid Shot Therapy. Bottle said it’s FDA compliant liquid pain relief drinkable shot. Common uses include migraines, headaches, sore muscles, back pain, among others. I’m used to Tylenol or Advil so I’m hesitant to give this a try, plus I haven’t had bad headaches lately so I’ll probably give it to hub or just store it for now.

Hawaiian Tropic Silk Hydration After Sun. It feels light on the skin with tropical fragrance. This comes in handy when I’m out and about, especially at the beach.

Sinful Colors Professional Nail Polish. It’s my favorite from this voxbox. It’s opaque in two passes, a little runny but overall good nail polish. I had three days of chip-free wear. Not bad for the price of $1.99 no? The shade I received is Ocean Side 962 (teal/blue).

What say you?

    Bummer that the mascara didn't work. Gotta have mascara! I love that Sinful Colors blue, though. They have pretty good formulas for an inexpensive brand, and lots of on-trend colors.

    I am not a fan of that mascara either. The sinful polish shade is really pretty!

    Not my favorite Vox Box but I like the polish.

    Yikes! Hate when mascara makes my lashes look clumpy, but it's nice that you found a workaround.

    You got great stuff!

    This looks like such a fun box. I wasn't too much of a fan of that mascara either.

    I love the polish!

    The polish is pretty. I have that mascara. I can tell you that I've reached for it maybe 2-3 times. It's not a favorite of mine either.

    Looks like a really great box! I love that color of nail polish.

    Too bad the mascara doesn´t work as promised 🙁

    Yeah, I wasn't a fan of that mascara either. It seems that most people that try it aren't impressed by it. Womp.

    You got some cute stuff! That mascara was a little meh for me.

  13. July 18, 2014 / 4:12 am

    Love the SinfulColors shade but that mascara doesn't give enough OOMPH for me!

  14. July 18, 2014 / 2:52 pm

    The box looks pretty cool, especially the polish 🙂

  15. July 19, 2014 / 12:05 am

    That box was kinda meh to me. Good thing it was a free influenster box and not subscription.

  16. July 19, 2014 / 10:00 pm

    Meh. The mascara wasn't so great and the other items seem kinda odd. but whatever. The fact that you enjoyed most of it, is what counts!
