Influenster Beauty Vox Box

I joined the website Influenster about a month ago after seeing a vox box on a friend's blog. I was super stoked because it's similar to birch box, but it's free! All you have to do is put in a little time reviewing products and posting and answering questions, and sharing things you like on social media. Easy, right? Well, after a couple of weeks on the site and quite a few reviews, I qualified for a beauty Vox Box!

Here's what came in the Beauty Vox Box:

NYV New York Color Individual Eyes Custom Compact
I haven't actually tried this yet, as I don't usually do dark makeup, but I'm excited to try this, you want to know why?
They tell you where to put all of the colors! That's one of the hardest parts for me when using eye shadow, and now they've made it easy.

Kiss Ever Pro Lashes Starter Kit
This kit is awesome. It comes with everything you need. I have this super old pair of lashes that were hard to put on, but the applicator in this kit makes it easy, and you don't get the glue all over your hands, if you're normally messy like me. I'm totally using these for Halloween.

Bath & Body Works Mini Candles - Cider Lane
We actually really needed a candle in the bathroom...there's no fan. We were really excited that this actually smells good! I'm kind of picky about my candles and this one smells really good and it's a good size and discrete in the bathroom.

This is an energy drink similar to 5 hour energy in that it uses vitamins and natural caffeine. Look at the head on it when you first pour it in. Hal said it tasted like a crushed up flinstones vitamin. Caution. Use a full glass of water with it.

Goody Simple Styles Spin Pin:
I've never heard of these before, and I was excited they sent them in a color perfect for my hair. I didn't know if these would work, because I lost so much of my hair, and my thickness in Cambodia and it's just starting to grow back, but these actually worked really well. It took a few tries to get them in well enough to where they would stay for a long time, but they're great. They don't kink your hair in a bun like a hair holder does.

Not Your Mother's Smooth Moves Frizz Control Hair Cream
I was bummed for a second they didn't send me the type for curly hair, but I decided to just give it a go anyway, because switching from wet Cambodia to dry Utah my hair has had a seriously dry frizzy problem. I just ran this through my hair after the shower and it made SUCH a difference. My hair looks way better when I use this. It's not too spendy, so I might have to keep buying this after I run out.

Overall: I was impressed with the products they sent me. They're all things I can easily use, and easily incorporate into my beauty regimen.

So glad you went with this program and got a beauty vox box. :) I loved the eboost they sent me. And yes, I used a full glass of water with it. ;) hehehe.

I might have to join something like this! I get so jealous seeing the goodies. I need some hair serum terribly!

I'm SO jealous that the spin pins work for you. My hair is too thick.. it just falls out right away :(

Compared to the junk I usually get in Birchbox I was really impressed. Except for the false lashes, those things scare me.
