If you read my blog you may remember when I started this at the very end of April. I set myself up an account,connected all my various forms of social media and did a few reviews on items I had recently purchased. And BOOM…they sent me a survey for my first box! This all happened ,for me,in around 4 days. I got approved for the Ralph Lauren Tender Romance VoxBox. Two days after I was chosen,I received a confirmation that my box had been sent and tracking on that box. Two days later it was here,super fast! After that I did reviews on the product through all my social sites. For me it was a great experience.
I’ve been networking with Influenster ever since I got that box hoping for another! They approved me for two online campaigns which involved going to various stores I frequent anyhow,like Target,and taking selfies with displays or posting on twitter about certain products. This way I stayed active.
On May 26th I received a participation survey to see if I qualified for the next campaign aimed towards me based on information I had provided. I filled it out and was approved the next day 🙂 They sent me an email last a few days ago saying it was on it’s way and today I got it. And it’s glorious!!
The box was a lot bigger than my last one and felt sort of heavy. I figured there was good stuff in there 🙂
Opening these boxes is so much fun. They don’t tell you what to expect inside but you can poke around on social media and figure some of it out.
This one is the Blush VoxBox geared towards wedding season…like brides,wedding party,attendees of a wedding. And let’s see what’s inside ! 🙂
I was expecting a sample size of everything but wow! That is a 25 count of the Micellar wipes!
So let’s break it down(and yes it includes a handy guide as to what everything is and the pricing) :
- Secret Clinical Strength Clear Gel.
Full sized retails for 7.99,.05 travel size pictured here retails for $2.99
I use natural deodorant so I may not even open this one but I can say that it smells realllly nice!!!
- Simple Skincare Micellar Makeup remover Wipes
This is a full pack which retails for $5.99-$7.99 (25 wipes)
Super excited to try these. Micellar anything is all the rage. I’ve heard that the water itself burns many reviewers eyes but the wipes have gotten pretty good reviews. I’ll add mine soon.
- Pantene Expert Intense Hydration Shampoo&Conditioner
Full size retails at $4.99 each,these are 3.9 flo oz (shampoo) and 2.5 flo oz (conditioner) bottles and I couldn’t find a pricing for them retail. The bottles I did find were much smaller and around $3-$6 each.
I haven’t used Pantene in many years. I will def try these though or throw them in my overnight bag. I could smell them the minute I opened the box. I love that scent!
- Ardell lashes In Natural
Obviously full size haha. They retail for $5.00
I don’t use false lashes as much as I once did but I’m willing to give these a go. I’m used to costume lashes which hurt my vision and triggered migraines. We’ll see if these are better 🙂
And last there is a 15% off coupon for Perfect Detail Bridal Accessories. Looks like they have some pretttty thangs 🙂 This would be awesome for a bride!!
So my overall review of this box is….OMG THIS WAS FREEEEEE!!! Seriously..I paid 0 for this and I got at least $20.00 in product. Is it sad that this box was way better and more fun to open than my Sephora Play! Box that I waited so long for?? UGH.
So my next steps are to post about the products on social media sites as I use them. This step takes the longest,I will say. Last time I was iffy about it…but this time I am 100% invested. It’s entirely worth it. Just takes a few moments out of the day 🙂
So as per last time I will shamelessly plug myself as I get influence points if you sign up under me 🙂
