The Perks of Being an Influenster: Moda Vox Box #ModaVoxBox #friendflurry


I am always super excited to get a package in the mail (who isn't?!?)... but every time I get an Influenster box it is seriously better than Christmas morning for me.  So when this bright pink box showed up on my doorstep I couldn't wait to open it up! For this campaign, I was chosen to receive the "Moda Vox Box.  "Moda" means fashion in Spanish, I knew that even with my rusty Spanish skills, so I just knew there was something fun waiting for me in this box.  You can see my reaction in my unboxing video here:

So after taking the time to review all of these products, here is what I got along with what my opinions of each product:

Rimmel London Scandaleyes Rockin' Curves Mascara #RockinIt #Rimmel

With the exception of one Rimmel lip gloss, I am not an avid Rimmel product user, so I was really anxious to try some of their products and happy to see them included. Scandaleyes Rockin' Curves Mascara features a "broken heart" wand that helps to grab smaller, finer lash hairs.  The pigmentation of the mascara is fantastic, VERY black and really helps my lashes to stand out. Long lasting and easy to remove.  The cons are that it can be awkward to apply mascara with this wand in your non-dominant hand, and you really need to make sure that you let each coat dry thoroughly to avoid clumps. All in all I really like this mascara, and would buy it again, but in waterproof formula if it is available.
Rimmel Makeup Makeover - Moisture Renew Lipstick in Red Alert and transparent lip liner on lips, and Scandaleyes Mascara



Rimmel London Moisture Renew Lipstick #MoistureRenew

I was sent a bright red lipstick in the shade, .  Which I really love! I did not expect this lipstick to last so long, or to keep my lips so moisturized!  I am not a normal lipstick wearer, I prefer lip gloss, but this is a brand I will definitely buy and use more of. Normally lipsticks dry out my lips and leave them looking like brightly colored snakeskin but this lipstick is fantastic!

Rimmel London Moisture Renew Lip Liner #MoistureRenew

I received this lip line in "transparent."  I have never used a transparent lip liner before, but I really like that it keeps lip color in place and keeps it from feathering. It also works great for lip gloss! So it's perfect for those lip colors that you can't match up.

Puffs SoftPack #PassthePuffs

I never buy Puffs or any other brand, for no reason other than the fact that I don't buy name brand tissues because I am too cheap!  I buy the cheapest tissue with the prettiest box.  I am the only person in my house that uses tissues frequently and consistently enough to say that I really, REALLY felt a difference in the feel and quality of Puffs!  They are so soft, it's like blowing your nose into a cloud!  I like the idea of a soft pack because I can take the whole thing and stuff in a glove box in my car and the tissues stay clean and protected unlike paper boxes that tear and eventually fall apart.  I have even re-purchased this product and I am now a fan.

Hair Moisture Hair Mask #HairFood

THIS STUFF IS FANTASTIC!! My hair is super curly, frizzy and dry and this stuff has worked miracles in my hair. It smells great and deep conditions hair from the root to the tip. My hair not only looks better but is softer, shinier and I have noticed less breakage as well.  My hubby even uses it on his beard, and it really helps to soften his facial hair! It's pricey but I will be repurchasing!

Swiss Miss Simply Cocoa #SwissMissSimplyCocoa

Nothing is better than a cup of hot cocoa on a cold morning, but most of the instant mixes contain a bunch of unpronounceable ingredients, that makes me weary of drinking it regularly. I really liked that Swiss Miss Simply Cocoa has only a few ingredients and tastes exactly the same!  I will be buying more and would love to see it come in a jumbo sized value pack so that the cashier doesn't look at me like I am crazy when I walk up to the register with 10 boxes of this stuff!

Jergens Ultra Healing Extra Dry Skin Moisturizer #1WeekToGorgeous

As you all may very well know I have really dry skin. It's awful...it looks bad and feels bad and cooler temperatures just make it 10 times worse. So I put this little bottle of lotion into my purse and carried it around with me for a week.  I used it on my hands and noticed a huge difference. I noticed that my hands stayed soft even after washing and using hand sanitizer.  So I started using on my arms and legs after showers and it has worked wonderfully.  I quickly ran out and went in search of the biggest bottle of this lotion that I could find and bought it immediately.  

Resource Spring Water #refreshwithresource

This was the most surprising item in my box, I did not expect a big bottle of water in my box. I have see Resource Water around but have been reluctant to try it because of price.  I figured it's just water, they all taste the same so I'll just buy whatever is on sale. Resource contains natural electrolytes, so this water really is very refreshing, and tastes really good. I took a bottle with me walking and I thought it really helped to quench my thirst.  As soon as I find some more I will be re-purchasing to use during and after my workouts.
