My Holiday Influenster Voxbox Review!

Hey guys! Today's post is my Influenster Voxbox Review! (Don't worry I promise nail posts soon) ;)
Here is a picture of the items in my box!



Softsoap Coconut Scrub Bar Soap
It's funny I actually had this and was using it for about a week before I got my voxbox!
I saw it in Walmart, and since I love trying new products and I love coconut scents it was a no brainer for me!
Personally I really love this soap, typically I use bodywash because most soaps dry my skin out, but this one doesn't! And I love the exfoliate-y particles in it =] But I usually use a loofa so not sure those matter much for me.
Sorry no pictures here :P Not sure a shower picture would be appropriate! lol jk
But looking back I should have taken a picture of a fresh bar..sorry!

Mentos Pure Fresh Gum
I'll be honest I'm not a big gum chewer at all, and when I get gum it is always Orbit-Sweet Mint.
Other flavors taste okay but idk, that is my go to gum..sort of like Sprite is my go to soda, I never get sick of it like I do others if i have too much.
The flavor wasn't bad but didn't last very long either, maybe 45 mins to an hour..but I'm not sure what is the norm since I chew gum maybe once a month lol. I like the packaging, but I didn't like how hard the gum was to bite at the beginning (sensitive teeth), but like some gums that get more "tough" overtime this one didn't so that was nice, gum that does that hurts my jaw :(

Again I didn't feel pictures were necessarily here :P I should have taken one of me blowing a bubble though!

LARABAR
This was my first experience with this, never heard of it before at all or anything.
I didn't love my bar so much, but I think I would like other flavors and I am intrigued to try more.
The good to me was the texture and that it was moist not dry.
I think the big issue with me and the flavor was that I could taste the fruit, and it was supposed to be chocolate chip brownie flavored, you know?
Let me state this though-I am very picky with chocolate, I like plain yummy milk chocolate. No chocolate bars like snickers, peppermint bark etc (Hubby thinks I am crazy, I mean sure on occasion they are okay)
But I just like plain chocolate. Unless it is caramel filled. But overall definitely not bad, I ate the whole thing :)
At LÄRABAR, we believe that the foundation of a sound mind, body and spirit is derived from what you eat. And what you eat is healthiest and most satisfying when it's in a whole, natural state. Made from only 2-9 ingredients, each LÄRABAR is a delicious blend of just fruits, nuts and spices. Pure and simple, just as nature intended.™ 



imPRESS Press-On Manicure-Broadway Nails
These are really nice and I think would be perfect for those who are nail art challenged, or like artificial nails.
#1 Packaging-ADORABLE! Love it!
#2 Super easy to Apply, and take off!
#3 They cause zero damage to your nails!

But..there is a but..I think they need to offer a larger variety of sizes & lengths.
I used my right hand ("non-pic hand") that has shorter nails and these were still too short : /
Plus they just didn't fit my nails :(
I would still def recommend these if you think they will fit your nails, there is a big variety of styles and they are very cute!
On a personal level I doubt I will ever buy these, but not because the product quality I think other people should!! But I loathe artificial nails, I have had one manicure when I was 14 got acrylics and pretty much pulled them off a day later after prom (My sister took me to be girly with her :), at that point in time I was NOT girly!) But the feeling is SO alien to me and I just don't like it, haha.

The style of mine wasn't "Me" Nude colored & classy, not my favorite but still really cute. very shiny, and SO quick to put on & take off!)

 Such cute packaging! & look Nail polish PJ's! :)  (Walmart!)

NYC Liquid Lip Shine
This was my first NYC lippie, and I usually don't wear nudes much but I really like this, it is so sparkly and pretty! I think the Quality for the price is Phenomenal!
It was pretty sheer, which I like because my lips still look plenty pink and I like pink lips :)
It was a bit sticky, but seriously most gloss is, and it is thick enough to last a long time and hold in moisture which is important in the winter months!

A beauty-editor favorite is Liquid Lipshine ($2.49). It has pure pigments that created a 3-D gloss effect. Vitamin E provides shine and a moisturizing feel. The formula is non-sticky, super shiny & soft. Available in 10 on-trend shades from neutral nudes, to berries & fuchsias. Start shopping for NYC at these stores nearest you: Walmart, Target, Rite Aid, CVS, Family Dollar, Duane Reade, Kmart, HEB, and others.  Visit newyorkcolor.com to check out all shades and fun products from New York Color!

 Here is it on my lips, applied pretty lightly though you could definitely put on more and get a little more color payoff ..but only so much it is a sheer Lippie.


Montagne Jeunesse Face Mask
The Montagne Jeunesse mask I received was the Fruit smoothie pore cleansing one, in Crushed Raspberry.
The scent wasn't bad at all, but not completely fruity either. I think I could smell the clay through it a little but not unpleasant at all. It felt really relaxing and cooling. I buy these pretty often, just for the fun, they work pretty well, especially for the price. My favorite pore cleanser is Origin's Clay one, but it costs a lot so I use these in between my bi-monthly use of that one.
I don't have super problematic pores, really the only place they are visible is on the tip of my nose.
I took before and after pictures but it's hard to notice a difference. I do think it helped pull out redness in my skin & that was a very nice pleasant surprise!
