I opened my door yesterday to find a bright pink box from Influenster - my first VoxBox! I have received the Spring Fever VoxBox, and I'm just dying to try all the products. For those who don't know, Influenster is a website where you sign up, write reviews, and free products are sent to those who both match the profile and have high scores. Right now it's invite only; you can request one on the website or get one from a current member (I have one invite left if anyone would like it!).
I actually did an unboxing video to complete one of the tasks for the box. I'm posting it below, but be warned: it is my first video EVER and is slightly awkward!
If you'd like a blog "unboxing", here we go...

As for my first impressions...
Secret Outlast Clear Gel: ($4.59) I would love to finally find an antiperspirant/deodorant that does it's job with the added benefit of no white marks (I LOVE my little black dresses - and actually bought another today!). I'm not so sold on the smell - I like to go with scentless and add my own perfume or mist if needed. But if this works I might have to search out an unscented version!
NYC Applelicious Glossy Lip Balm in "Big Apple Red": ($2.99) Yay! A lip product! The apple is super cute, I love all of the great ingredients included (shea butter, vitamin E, etc.), and the smell is delightfully apple-y :) Need I say I have high hopes for this?
Broadway Nails imPress in "Get Into It": ($7.99) The version I got is from a "signature series" by Nicole Scherzinger, whom I know nothing about but which is kind of exciting. But in general I'm happy just to HAVE fake nails. I wore acrylics for quite literally years, and I miss having long nails. One of my goals this summer is to get my nails to a paint-able length, and wearing fakes most of the weeks might help me stop biting them.
Schwarzkopf Professional Osis Dust It: ($23.50) At first I thought this was a sample size, but after some research it's clear that it is not. It looks so tiny for full-size! Still, I'm both excited and terrified to use it - it's supposed to add texture and volume, neither of which I need AT ALL haha.
Tastykake Kandy Bar Kakes in "Smores": ($4.49 per box of 5, $1.69 for one) Having seen that everyone was getting some variety of this treat, I was super excited. And, I still am, but I'm also a little frustrated upon further inspection...my Tastykake expired on May 23rd! Since it's probably made with horribly processed and preserved ingredients I doubt it will do me more damage than it would have if un-expired, so I'm not too worried and will probably eat it. Still, it would be considerate of Influenster to remember that food has a shelf life! Given this fact, I will be eating and reviewing this asap - like, tomorrow!
