I signed up for Influenster back in October but this Holiday 2011 VoxBox marks my first shipment from them.  I'm excited to share with you what is inside!!

The Holiday 2011 VoxBox

The Breakdown
This Coconut Scrub from Softsoap smells amazing and feels really great.  I'm glad it was in this shipment to introduce me, since normally I have to stay away from putting fragranced lotions and soaps directly on my skin.  (Usually I use Safeguard for soap and Aveeno for lotion).

imPRESS Press-On Manicure by Broadway Nails are beautifully festive and perfect for the holiday!  I haven't tried these out yet (since I've been reviewing quite a few polishes lately I can't tie my nails up!) but I'm  thinking of doing this for New Years Eve.  If I do, I'll be sure to do a separate post and review.  I'm down to try anything that doesn't use glue, doesn't destroy nails, and peels right off!

Mentos Pure Fresh Gum.  Now who wouldn't want "The Fresh Maker" in gum form?  These taste AMAZING and stay fresh for quite awhile as you chew.  Only downside?  I had to use a weapon to open them.  I'm not kidding, I busted out a medium sized, rather sharp knife to break the seal.  You have to be He-Man (or in this case, She-Ra) to open otherwise.

Montagne Jeunesse Face Mask.  Full disclosure... I've tried something similar to this before.  I'm not sure if it was this kind from this brand, but I got it at Wal-Mart and a friend of mine got one for his mom also... I could NOT get the thing off.  It took hours to peel it.  When I called my friend to whine he said his mom was having the same issue with hers.  Needless to say, I haven't tried  this sample yet because I'm a bit scared.  Well, that and I'm currently in the middle of a skin care trial lol I will try it though, I could use a good and affordable face mask!




New York Color (NYC) Liquid Lip Shine.  No idea what the color is, but it's pretty and appears that it would be flattering on anyone.  It swatches as a peachy nude but it almost sheer on the lips.  It wasn't that sticky and I'm loving the 3-D effect!

There was also a Larabar in Cashew Cookie with this shipment, but before I thought to take photos I opened it, took a bite, and spit it out.  I think the concept of these bars is awesome, and am sad I didn't like it.  I think it was the flavor that did it, I'm not a Cashew girl.  They have a ton of other flavors including Apple Pie and Cookie Dough, which probably would have fared much better in this house.

I thought this VoxBox was SO fun.  It was full of items that I was actually really excited to see, and all of which were interesting. You should definitely check out Influenster if you like to sample and review products, especially since it's a free service... what can it hurt? ;)

I got my Voxbox yesterday! I'm pretty happy with the products. The lip gloss shade is called "Nude York City." I love the way it smells.

For the mask, you can always test it out on your hand before applying it to your face :)
