*I received the products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes, but opinions are all mine*
I have been a member of Influenster since October 2012, and in that time I have received a handful of VoxBoxes. For those of you who don't know what Influenster is, it's a product testing & reviewing site. Basically you sign up, review some things, and your social media presence impacts whether or not you will get into a campaign, aka get a VoxBox. And the VoxBoxes are filled with FREE product- all you have to do to be eligible for an upcoming campaign is finish the one you are in (there are different tasks, ie. post a pic of the Voxbox on FB and insta, etc.), and take a survey at the end of the campaign. Easy Peasy!
Usually I don't do reviews on the blog when Influenster sends me VoxBoxes, but once I opened the Bloom VoxBox and saw what was in it, I knew I just had to share everything with you!
In my box, I received: Clockwise from middle
Sun Belt Bakery Fudge Dipped Chocolate Chip Granola Bar
Cutex Advanced Revival Nail Polish Remover Pads
Sinful Colors nail polish in VIP
Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse Multi-Purpose Dry Oil
Not Your Mother's Plump for Joy thickening hair lifter
Secret Outlast Xtend Invisible Solid
The one product that I was excited to see was the Not Your Mother's thickener. I have really fine and thin hair, so my hair is basically lifeless. Like greasy hair plastered to my head, but without the greasiness, lifeless. When I use the Not Your Mother's after a shower in my towel dried hair, and then blow dry, I get some volume, but overall, my crown looks thicker. It does have a smell, but it dissipates rather quickly. I really love it, and it's now a staple in my hair routine.
I really like the idea of the Cutex Advanced Revival Nail Polish Remover Pads. They are very gentle, but they pack a punch; one pad is enough to clean 10 fingers or toes. They don't have the normal "nasty nail polish remover" smell, which was my favorite aspect. They are also perfect for travel, and bonus: they are TSA-compliant.
When it comes to nail polish, I am not very picky on the brand. I generally only wear colored polish on my toes, so if a formula goes on smooth and is relatively cheap, then I am happy. Sinful colors fits my requirements. They have hundreds of on trend color shades in creams, glitters, shimmers, mattes, etc, and are cheap. The polish will usually last about 5 days to a week before chipping, and doesn't have a bad smell.
I don't usually use a dry oil on my body, but I did use the Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse Multi-Purpose Dry Oil on my cuticles and I can tell you that I loved the feeling. My cuticles were very hydrated and my hands were not a greasy mess.
The Sun Belt Bakery Fudge Dipped Chocolate Chip Granola Bar was VERY YUMMY and healthy. And the Secret Outlast Xtend Invisible Solid lasted all day, but did NOT transfer to my clothes.
Overall, I loved the box and I used EVERYTHING! All the products are great for a girl on the go, especially a mom who needs products that work & pack a punch, while being on the cheaper side.
Have you used any of the products that I tested in the Bloom VoxBox?
