Yes, it is that time again. Time for another VoxBox! This past month (I know I’m super late with this..) I got the J’Adore VoxBox from Influenster which has a bunch of stuff in it that’s along the lines of luxe and fancy and such. So let’s just get right to it?
*Disclaimer: This post is sort of like my “unboxing”, A.K.A. I’ve had this box for almost a month and I haven’t tried everything yet. Whoops. So you’ll get my initial impressions. If I like something enough (or hate it), I’ll post a follow up review later.*
- John Frieda Frizz Ease 3 Day Straight
If you remember in my post about curling my hair, I told you I already have pin straight hair. So when I saw this in my box I was like “Great. Another wasted product to throw in my bathroom junk drawer.” Because honestly I don’t need my hair to be any straighter than it already is. I’m glad I only got the travel/sample size, that way I don’t feel entirely guilty for not using it. I think I’ll give it a try, 1) because Influenster sent it to me for review and b) I think it will really help my frizz situation (duh, it says Frizz Ease right on the box Kim..). While my hair is straight and generally healthy, I do have a quite a bit of frizz going on. And with summer/humidity season coming up, it’s only going to get worse. I’ll keep you updated.
- Boots Botanics Ionic Clay Mask Shine Away
Sigh, another product I doubt I’ll use. My face is really really sensitive. Last time I used a mask, which was the Yes To! brand (the cucumber one), which is all organic and hippie and “good for you”, my face got so scorched it looked I like I had been laying in the desert for a week. And it isn’t just face masks I’m sensitive to, I even tried going to a Neutrogena face wash and my skin was red and sensitive and painful for over a week. So when I find a regime that works for me, I rarely change it. But again, I’ll give this a try (probably on a day or week when I have nothing going on). I’m sure if you use face masks regularly, this would be the product for you.
- Kiss Looks So Natural False Eyelashes
I swear I’m not a cynical blogger/VoxBox recipient, I’m just being totally honest. I really will not try these. You know how people have a fear of snakes and death and car accidents? Well I have a fear for fake eyelashes. I think a) they’re stupid and b) a death trap for your eyes waiting to happen. There is no universe where putting GLUE on/around your eye is anywhere near safe. Not only can you glue your eye shut, but you can get an insane infection that can make you go blind. I’m sure I’m just overreacting but it’s a legitimate fear of mine. So don’t make fun of me.
Anyways. I’m sure these are beautiful and great and whatnot, but I won’t be trying them. Anyone in need of fake lashes for some event and want to give these a try? I’ll even pay to send them to you.
- RedRose Tea – Assorted Flavors
FINALLY something in this box I will try! I love tea. Any kind of tea (for the most part). I love collecting tea boxes and of course drinking the stuff. While my Mom was here she had one of the Lemon flavors and really liked it, but I have yet to give them a shot. I’m a little iffy on the Caramel flavored one, but who knows, it could turn out to be my favorite tea. I’ll probably have a cup or two today.
- Hershey’s Kisses
Ah, again. Something in this VoxBox I will try! Funny story: I opened the bag (family sized) and dumped them into my cookie/candy jar, where I keep all of my mints/candies/etc. When my Mom was in town, she was working from my apartment one day and I had to go into work. I came home and picked her up so we could go grocery shopping and when we passed the candy aisle, she said “I need to get you some Kisses”, to which I replied “No I just got a big bag from that pink box (the VoxBox) in the dining roo– oh. You ate them all didn’t you?” and she said “Not ALL of them, but yes”. So these in the picture are the last remaining survivors, which are mixed with their Easter brethren.
I’ve obviously had Hershey Kisses before, so I can already tell you that if you’ve never ate one (or 28), a) they’re delicious and b) um, what? Why have you never had a Hershey Kiss before!?!?
There you have it. My “reviews”. Is there anything from this box you’d be really interested to hear about? Have you tried any products from this box before? Let me know!
