I was luckily chosen by Influenster to receive one of their free sample boxes. I’ve been a member of Influenster for a long time but this is only my second opportunity to receive a box from them. I was excited to be chosen for their winter #FrostyVoxBox and couldn’t wait for it to arrive.
Influenster is a free service for people who are very active on social media. From what I understand it can be anyone, not just bloggers. The important thing is that you share your box and your opinions on sites like Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest etc. It’s an opportunity to try new products. If you are interested in applying here are two good articles that will tell you more than I possibly can: The Fashionable Affair and I Love My Kids.
As a beauty blogger I’m always most excited when I find beauty items in any kind of surprise package so receiving Rimmel London’s Gentle Eye Makeup Remover was terrific. This is a gentle bi-level product that removes all eye makeup, even waterproof. Yet there’s no oily residue. It’s great to find a product I can pick up at the drugstore since I use an eye makeup remover every day. #Rimmel
Now what do I need to remove with this Eye Makeup Remover? How about Rimmel London Scandaleyes Kohl Kajal Eyeliner? The Scandaleyes eyeliners are always terrific and this Kohl Kajal one is new to me. The pigmentation is amazing as is the application of it. It is waterproof so it goes hand in hand with the Rimmel remover. If you are interested in an eyeliner that is not only waterproof but also smudge-proof, sweat-proof, heat-proof and humidity-proof then you’ve found that liner with Rimmel. It comes in 10 shades so there’s a color for everyone.
NYC EXPERT LAST LIP COLOR comes in twenty shades. For only $1.97 you can be guilt free even if you are on a budget. It’s a moisturizing formula which we need in this color weather. They say it lasts 6 hours though I tend to bite my lips so it’s rare for a lipstick to last that long on me. #SugarPlum is a great every day shade – not too warm, not too cool.
There was also a sample size of BOOTS No 7 PROTECT & PERFECT ADVANCE SERUM. I wish there was more of it! But a sample allows me to know if I can tolerate the fragrance and a $2 off coupon was included. #getADVANCED
Last but far from least in the beauty category is the ECOTOOLS FULL VOLUME HAIR STYLER BRUSH.
I’ve really enjoyed using this brush since it’s gentle on my hair and it does help with achieving some volume. ECOTOOLS is a brand I trust since it’s an ecologically sound brand that believes in recycling. The brush is meant for thin to medium hair which describes mine well. And it’s meant for a smoothing effect, just like I like. #LoveMyEcoHairBrush.
There’s more to this box than I’ve shown so far. The first item that has now disappeared (in my mouth) is Fruit Vines Bites. These are a soft, chewy fruit candy made by Red Vines and come in two flavors – strawberry and cherry. I can’t wait to get to a store like Target, Kroger or Walgreens to pick up the strawberry. I finished my bag the first day so that tells you how much I like them. There are 3 sizes available: 2 oz single serve, 5 oz hanging bag and a 10 oz resealable bag. I better stick with single serve the next time! #SweetSide
Not as exciting but certainly useful is the bottle of McCORMICK GOURMET ALL NATURAL THYME. Perfect timing since one of the goals of our household is to replace all our herbs this year so that we are starting with fresh ones. Thyme gets used in any soup I make and it’s great with fish or chicken on the grill. #McCormickGourmet
The very last product which is also gone was a sample of Celestial Seasonings Candy Cane Lane Green Tea which happily was decaffeinated. I’ve cut caffeine from my life and this holiday flavor was a nice treat. #CelestialTea
I really enjoyed being able to sample all of these items big or small. Influenster sends out different boxes monthly and I’m hoping to be able to receive one again now that I’ve experienced some great items that were new to me. Have you ever received an Influenster box? — Marcia
