Influenster – Holiday Voxbox

Woohoo, my very first Voxbox since I joined Influenster this past summer.  I had received the Palmolive box but it wasn’t an official VoxBox so I’m counting the Holiday VoxBox as my very first one!  I filled out a survey one day and then they said I was getting a Holiday VoxBox!  This is good because it makes me try out all the stuff as early as possible.  I don’t know if you have noticed but it takes me a while to finally try something.  I like to take my time, which could be a bad thing.  I’m a big time procrastinator.   Here it is:

I’m comparing the size of the boxes. The Loot Crate is on the left and the Voxbox is on the right side.

Oh wow, I didn’t know they were based in NYC!
No wonder the box came really soon. It actually arrived on Saturday, the day I left for Montreal.
I had it shipped to my parents’ house.

Packing list with descriptions and price

1.  Quaker – Real Medleys Summer Berry Oatmeal – I used to hate oatmeal but now I love it. I think I used to hate it because my parents would make it for me when I was young but I wouldn’t eat it right away. By the time I’ve gotten the bravery to try this bland mess, it was congealed, cold and tasteless.  I love McDonald’s Fruit and Maple Oatmeal but I know it has to have a bunch of bad crap in it in order for it to taste good.  I also love the Quaker instant oatmeal packets, too.  I was very eager to try this.  I brought it for breakfast to work yesterday.  The instructions are very easy.  You can either add boiling water in it and let it sit a minute, a lot like instant noodles.  Or you can put cold water in it and then nuke it for like 45 seconds.  I took the first method and this is what it looked like:

It looks a little too liquidy there so I let it sit a bit more till it got really thick.  I think I would have liked the other varieties better.  I usually love berries but these were berries were really sour.  I noticed on the bottom, it was a little sweeter so maybe I just hadn’t stirred well enough.  The other varieties are:  Apple Walnut Oatmeal, Cherry Pistachio Oatmeal and Peach and Almond Oatmeal. Those sound fantastic!  Wasn’t too fond of the Summer Berry one but I will gladly try the other flavors.  This costs about $1.79 per cup.  I was also really full, too, and I couldn’t finish the whole cup!

2.  This is like the 3rd or 4th packet of EBoost I’ve received so far from other subscription boxes, like Conscious Box or Cravebox.  I figured it was similar to Emergen-C or something like that.  GlitteredScrubs had told me this tasted disgusting so I was even more scared to try it but I’m trying it..now.  😦  I think Emergen-C tastes awesome compared to this vile crap.  Ugh!  I’m not even sure if it’s boosting my mood, focus and immunity, since I’m already sick.  The most vile thing I have ever tasted was Buckley’s cough syrup even though it worked.  I think Eboost is up there too.  Ugh! And look!  This is what happens when you mix it with water!

HV12

I know it’s pink lemonade flavor but this is a little disturbing. LOL
This goes for $28 for a box of 20 packets; $39 for a box of 30…*shudder*
I think my stomach is protesting against this. I can’t force myself to drink this anymore…bleghhh

3.  Goody Quikstyle brushes.  This is a paddle brush with these absorbent microfiber bristles in between that are supposed to help dry your hair quicker.  They say it’s like a towel and brush in one.  This is kinda cool.  I’ve been using this since the beginning of the week.  It actually does seem to dry my hair a bit.  Some days I go without blow drying my hair because my hair seems to have dried a little bit more quickly than usual.  Although these days I’ve been blow drying because I have a cold…but I really do think this works!

This brush is $11.99.  I’m really loving this!

4.  Kiss Nail Dress.  This is so cute!!  I don’t really go for manicures since I am the ultimate klutz and tend to chip the polish off immediately but I usually go and get pedicures when the weather is warmer.  Plus, I don’t think I can really pull off cheetah print nails. I could, maybe a decade ago, with my cheetah print leather clubbing pants but not now.  No way. LOL.  That Babydot has long since grown up.  I think I’ll try this on my toe nails one of these days.  Maybe this weekend.  I’ve never applied anything to my own nails since I’m cursed with shaky hands so I don’t know how well these will turn out.  If these turn out great, I will definitely use more of these.  This costs $6.99.

5.  NYC New York Color Liquid Lipshine$2.49 – I’ve seen this brand before but I’ve never tried it.  I will, soon, though. I love lip gloss and lip balm.  They are my weakness.  I’m not a huge fan of this color though but they have a wide variety of colors available.

6.  Sole Society – $25 off your first purchase! – I’ve known about Sole Society for a while now but I’ve cancelled my membership.  Plus, all I wear these days are sneakers or fluffy imitation Uggs boots.  Heh.  Anyone interested in this?  Just email me or leave a comment and I’ll give it to you.  First come, first serve!

I did not get one of those face masks in my Voxbox but I think I got one in one of my other boxes.  Haven’t tried it yet..no surprise there.  =X

This was a great experience.  Much thanks to Influenster for giving me such a great opportunity to try out these new items.  I’m totally looking forward for more VoxBoxes if I’m lucky enough to qualify for more! 🙂

I have 2 more invites available to join Influenster. Anyone interested?  Just let me know!
