Influenster SweetHeart VoxBox 2013


Weeks ago I qualified to receive the Influenster SweetHeart VoxBox as part of the Influenster program and was ecstatic to see what new products I would have the chance to test out. Since I'm studying abroad I had to get my lovely boyfriend to be a packmule for me and bring this box of goodies in his luggage when he visited me in Amsterdam this past week.

In all honesty, all four items are equally exciting to me this time around. The Skinnygirl Greek Yogurt Blueberry Crisp Bar was a delicious treat that I can already give two thumbs up to. The rest of the products will take a bit more time and consideration before I can give a comprehensive review. The Olay Fresh Effects Cleansing System is definitely a wanna-be Clarisonic and as someone who is currently not in a position to shell out the money for the real deal, I hope this might be a dupe. The Secret Clinical Strength Deodorant is exciting to me simply because of a somewhat odd reason. I feel like this might be somewhat embarrassing or gross to disclose but in all honesty, I have never used a deodorant in my life. I have never felt the need to but having this in the box will give me an excuse to try something new! Last, but not least, is the Not Your Mother's Beach Babe Texturizing Sea Salt Spray which has me wishing for summer already. I've been eyeing the Not Your Mother's brand for awhile but never took the plunge. I can't wait to see if this product will give me those effortless waves that I've never had the patience to properly achieve on my own.

Have you tried any of these products? To all the other Influensters out there, what did you get in your most recent VoxBox?

  1. I got the box too. I got allergies from using the olay cleanser =( The deo surprisingly was fine. I don't use deos anymore, i prefer using the rock salt ones or I don't even know what to call it. They're from thailand and they're called
    "tawas" and they're all natural, coz I get allergies from using scented stuff. I tried the deo and it sort of smells like mangoes to me, like the sweet mango candies from asia.. The hubby tells me I smell like lychee? hahaha. I got the volumizing hair spray and not the sea salt and I hated the smell. EEEW.

    1. Oh no, I haven't tried the cleanser yet but I hope I don't have a reaction to it. The deodorant definitely smells fruity so I can see why you think it smells like mangoes :) The sea salt spray smells quite pleasant in my opinion but I have yet to test it out yet! The air is super dry here so I don't want to suck out any more moisture from my hair!

  2. I used to never use deodorant either!! My friends would always be baffled how I didn't stink. Now I use to as more of a cautionary thing especially at the gym.

    Please let me know how the texturizing spray works for you!

    1. I don't think I'll use the deodorant daily since I don't need it but I guess I'll put it on whenever I remember. Perhaps it will motivate me to exercise more! I plan on using the texturizing spray when the weather is warmer and the air isn't so dry. I've been conditioning my hair more so the sea salt would just reverse any repairing :/

    1. You should! They're a pretty tasty snack and great for on-the-go.

  4. Don't worry~ I don't use deodorant either~ I don't really sweat a lot so I just use my body sprays and perfume.

    1. The thing is that I sweat but I just don't think I particularly stink much.... Perhaps I do and nobody's told me? Haha, either way it's a nice thing to have just in case.
