Product Review: UPDATE-My First Influenster Vox Box! Unboxing Surf's Up Vox Box on YouTube!

About a week ago I received my first Influenster Vox Box in the mail.  I was so excited that I just HAD to made a YouTube video (also a first for me) unboxing it.  Well, I tried everything in the box and now it is time to review the products!

So here's what was in the box and following is my honest opinion of what I thought of each product:


Cover Girl's Bombshell Curvaceous by LashBlast Mascara in Very Black - I noticed other reviews on this one and they were pretty mixed. Personally, I LOVE this mascara it's double sided so I applied one side, let it dry, then applied the other side. It's long wearing but not waterproof, but I had no issues with clumping or removing it with an oil-based remover.
just noticed I am a little cockeyed, but my lashes look great!


Sinful Colors Nail Polish in Fire Red - I love Sinful Colors Nail Polish because they always have the coolest colors!  I was super happy to add this one to my collection. "Fire Red" is a sassy color that went on smoothly and lasted for about 4 days with no chipping on my hands, my toes still look good after 8 days.  Which is to be expected because I use my hands a lot, so I haven't met a nail polish yet that lasts for a week on my fingernails.
Oh, fire-y!


First Aid Shot Therapy Pain Relief - Filing this one under "tastes gross, works great."  This one is a pain reliever in shot form.  It allegedly comes in "Berry flavor."  I don't know what kind of berries this was flavored with, maybe "grossberries" or "yuckberries." I was having some neck and back pain, so I tried it.  The flavor was horrid but 10 minutes after drinking it, the pain was just about gone, 20 minutes later I felt so much better.  This stuff really works and it works fast. It does leave an aftertaste in your mouth, but it was a small price to pay for such effective pain relief. I will definitely buy this product and keep it on hand.

Jamba At Home Smoothies - I tried both the Strawberries Wild and Orange Dream Machine smoothie kits.  They were both tasty but entirely too sweet for me, and I was kinda disappointed at how much smoothie the kit actually made. And you have to add your own apple juice, which kinda defeats the purpose of a "kit" to me.  When I hear "kit" I'm thinking "all-inclusive." The Strawberries Wild flavor tastes like extremely sweet strawberry yogurt. Teenie, of course, loved it, and drank her glass and mine. The Orange Dream Machine tastes like extremely sweet orange sherbet, so I had to doctor it to tone down the sweetness. My suggestion is to use these kits as a base to better suit your taste preferences.  By the time I finished with the Orange flavor it tasted like a Creamsicle. Still very tasty and refreshing on a hot day. Here is my recipe and stay tuned for my video product review of the my new blender and Jamba At Home Smoothie Kits.


Hawaiian Tropic Silk Hydration After Sun Lotion- I love this lotion and I really wish they would have sent me a bigger bottle, because I am going through it so fast!  It smells delish and really softens your skin. There's nothing better than jumping in the pool in 100+ degree days, but after splashing around with kid in a chemical filled pool, my skin gets super dry and sometimes sunburned. I used this lotion after post swim shower, and it refreshes my skin with moisture! It really did a great job hydrating my skin, and works so well that I apply it once and I'm good to go all day. 

All in all I was pretty impressed with my first VoxBox and I hope to get more in the future to review!
