Yay! It's been awhile since I have qualified for an Influenster VoxBox, so I was excited to see that I would be part of the Violet VoxBox program!

This box was apparently based upon "dark, moody florals", though I didn't really see that reflected in the products...
 

Each box contained at least three products, with some Influensters getting one or more of the three products listed on the right hand side. I got two :) 


Here's my box!


There were mostly beauty products, and one food item.

One of the items I was most excited about was the Not Your Mother's "Clean Freak" Dry Shampoo. I LOVE dry shampoo because my hair is super oily, but I have a hard time finding one that doesn't look dusty on my dark hair.

I like Not Your Mother's products (which I talked about in my Sweetheart VoxBox Review here), and this dry shampoo retails for $6 for a full-sized bottle, which is a good price. I was pretty impressed with the performance of this dry shampoo - it worked well with only a light spray, and didn't leave a residue!! The only thing that I have to complain about is the really strong "baby powder-ish" scent that I've heard bothers a lot of people... BUT, if you don't breathe in while you're spraying it, the scent goes away after it settles.



The next product I was excited to try was this Dark Chocolate Cherry SoyJoy bar. I have seen SoyJoys around for awhile, but didn't know enough about them to buy one.

It had a decent amount of calories for the size of the bar, with a notable 5g of protein.

I have to be honest, though, and say that the taste and texture of the bar really didn't excite me at all.  It was sort of sponge-y and left a bit of an aftertaste. I would eat it if I was given another bar, but I don't think I'll be buying it any time soon.


Of course, I was excited to see which Sally Hansen Triple Shine Nail Polish color I would get to try. 


I got Fanta-Sea, which looked really pretty in the bottle. 


But, unfortunately, it didn't transfer very well during application. The polish was very thin, smelled really strong, and the glitter was tiny. It would make for a pretty topcoat, if you can look past the smell. I was a bit disappointed because I've heard some of the other colors are nice!


The next beauty item was the Goody Athletique headwrap, which is reversible, and quick dry - making it great for workouts. There were a few different colors of this distributed, but I got the dark/light blue. 

I have to say I was impressed by the fit and feel of this headband, and that it didn't slide back immediately after putting it on. A cute headband that stays in place? Yes, please! This would be great for working out :)


Last, but not least, was the Glacial Clay Spa mask. This was SO not what I expected when I tried it out, but it actually left my face feeling super clean and soft. 

There is an actual mask inside that you have to unfold and lay on your face. Totally freaked my kids out... it was actually hilarious. You leave it on for 10-15 minutes, and then remove, massage and rinse. I felt it tingling, and it had a slight clay smell, but nothing unpleasant. A few hours later my face feels really good!


So there you have it... my Violet VoxBox from Influenster. If you're interested in becoming a member, I currently have four invitations I can send out (they renewed our invites recently, yay!). Leave your email address in the comments, or shoot me an email at slockwood33 at gmail dot com requesting one :)

Have you tried any of these products or brands? Did you get this VoxBox? What did you think? 

XO Steph


Disclosure: I received the above products for free in exchange for my opinions. I have tried them all, and only offer my 100% honest opinions - always!

  3. Ooh that's a nice VoxBox!! So pretty, too! I do like the sparkles, but I agree, they would look better with a color underneath. I'm not sure I could handle a smell, though! I LOVE Montagne Jeunesse masks! They are awesome!

  4. That's good Voxbox! It seems sometimes colors are hit and miss, but overall nice! I'm really wanting to try dry shampoo... I just haven't yet! Maybe I'll give that brand a shot!
