Influenster Love Vox Box (Flash Review)

I am an Influenster. What is an Influenster you might ask? Influensters are a "Community of trendsetters invited to share their lifestyles and show their influence to qualify for personalized product shipments, special rewards and exclusive deals from the brands they love. Members love testing the latest products, giving insightful feedback, and spreading the word on their favorite finds!". As an Influenster, I get to test different products (some before they even hit the shelves) through the VoxBox program. If you're interested in learning more visit their website here.

 Here's a pic of the Valentine themed box aptly named the LoveVoxBox:

The box included the following products: 

Ghirardelli - Gourmet Milk Chocolate Creamy Devotion Bar

Ghirardelli is known for producing some of the highest quality, most indulgent chocolate around, and this bar did not disappoint. It was smooth, creamy, and had just the right amount of cacao. The individual squares were perfectly portioned for a melt in your mouth moment that was meant to be savoured. The coupon included in the box was also greatly appreciated.

Gillette - Venus & Olay Razor

Gillette Venus & Olay Razor

What do you get when you combine a Venus razor with Olay moisture? You get a smooth, close shave without the use of any extra products. I thoroughly enjoyed using this razor, especially since I didn't have to exfoliate and lather up with shaving products like I normally do with other razors. I have really dry skin on my legs, and shaving usually leaves my legs dry, tight, itchy, and begging to be slathered with body butter. I'll admit that I didn't expect much from this razor (especially since I've tried other self-lathering razors before with poor results), but I was pleasantly surprised that I didn't even need to moisturize after shaving. This is one product that I'll definitely continue to use.

Kiss Nail Dress - Ultimate Nail Fashion

Kiss Nail Dress-Fashion That Sticks

Kiss Nail Dress are nail stickers that come in solids and cute designs, and can be used on both your fingers and toes. I thought that these were perfect for those of us who want cute nails but are short on time (or aren't artistic enough to create cute designs). The stickers were really easy to apply: you just match the size to your nail, apply, and file of the excess with the little file provided. I actually applied mine within a few minutes while riding in the car. I must say that I was impressed with the staying power of the stickers. They lasted over a week, including four 12 hour shifts at a steel mill (I work with my hands and have to constantly wash them). I would definitely purchase these again if I needed a quick manicure for an event or just wanted something cute for everyday wear. Unfortunately, I never got around to testing them on my toes.

Stash - Herbal Tea Sampler

Stash Tea Herbal Tea Sampler

I really enjoyed  trying the different flavors in this tea sampler, especially the Mango Passionfruit and Acai Berry. The teas were of a high quality and made for a very fragrant, delicious cup. I liked that the teas were caffeine free, perfect for unwinding before bed without the worry of not being kept awake. I would recommend this brand of tea to anyone who enjoys flavored herbal teas. If you aren't able to find these locally, you should definitely check out the website, they have a wide range of flavors and reasonable shipping costs.


Truvia Natural Sweetener

I'm pretty sure most of you have heard of Truvia, especially with the current influx of all natural products being introduced into the market. Truvia is a no-calorie sweetener derived from stevia leaves. Since I'm a tried and true Splenda girl, this was my first time trying Truvia. I actually used it in the Stash Tea, and it was fairly sweet with only a slight hint of an after taste. I would possibly think about switching to Truvia just because it is all natural, but I'd have to test it in other products first.

*Disclaimer* I was given these products complimentary for testing purposes by the respective companies via Influenster.
