Back To Campus Influenster VoxBox Review (9/13/2019)

Hi everyone! I was sent ANOTHER VoxBox by Influenster and I couldnt be more thankful for that. I am really glad that I get the opportunity to review these products for free in exchange for my reviews through Influenster!

Yes, and I mean 100% free. I will be taking this time to explain what Influenster is so if you know what it is scroll down to the bold LETS REVIEW to just see the review of the VoxBox I got!

So what is Influenster?

Influenster is a New York based company that sends out free products to it’s users in exchange for reviews from those users. Influenster picks people to send free products to and all you have to do is follow their instructions (post on Instagram, review on your blog/youtube, write a review on Sephora etc). They send you packages called VoxBoxes which are the free products you get to test!

So how do you sign up and get VoxBoxes?

Signing up is free and all you have to do is download their app and sign up with an email. To get VoxBoxes there are a few things you can do to qualify. First you should connect all of your social media accounts to Influenster because that will give you an “Impact Score” the higher your impact is, the more boxes you can be eligible for.

You can also become an expert in certain subjects and receive badges for those topics. If you write a certain amount of reviews on a specific topic (makeup, fashion, mom products etc.) you will more likely get VoxBoxes revolved around those topics, and you can be more eligible than the next person to receive a VoxBox.

You can also be more involved in the Influenster community which can help you get more VoxBoxes. For example, by making lists, answering and asking questions, writing reviews, submitting review videos and completing Snaps which are things Influenster picks out for you to review.

What do I do when I receive a VoxBox?

Snap a picture of it, go on Influenster and notify them that you’ve received your VoxBox, try the products inside, take pictures of you using it and start completing the tasks that are required of you which might be to post a picture to Facebook, write a Tweet about the product etc. Once you complete all tasks you will receive a badge and this will help you be eligible for more VoxBoxes. Make sure to keep an eye out on the email that you use for your profile because they will send you emails of mandatory surveys. If you do not take the survey you wont be eligible for VoxBoxes anymore. You will also have to keep out for “You are on the shortlist for our next  VoxBox, TAKE THIS SURVEY.” emails, these will determine whether they will send you a VoxBox or not.

Virtual VoxBoxes?

Sometimes there are other opportunities to take advantage when it comes to Virtual Voxes. It is basically a virtual deal where you can either get cashback for buying a specific product at Ulta or CVS etc. and reviewing that product. It can also be as simple as going to the store and posting a picture of you next to the product at the store. There are other Virtual Voxes that are easier to get and it could be as easy as reviewing your favorite Halloween Candy on the app. These badges will help you as well!

LETS REVIEW THE VOXBOX!

I am so happy getting this VoxBox because these are definitely necessities whether you are going back to campus or you are busy going to work and going to school working on your degrees/certificates! In this VoxBox I got a number of items that I was in love with.

The first item I reviewed was the f’real Sourpatch Kid Watermelon Shake, we got a voucher to get a free one! It honestly tasted surprisingly good and it wasn’t extremely tart but it definitely did taste like a watermelon. The next item I got to test (keeping with the same theme of food and drink) was the SMASH Crispy Strawberry Marshmallow Rice Treats. I am obsessed with this! It tastes delicious and I am so happy with how filling it was. Definitely is a great mid-day or even midnight snack.

Along the lines of products that I tested in this box I want to start off with the Tone Mango Splash Body Wash. I love this body wash, it smells so good, it moisturizes my skin and I feel refreshed after using it! It is almost like the summer to fall pick-me-up that I was looking for! I also tried out the SheaMoisture 100% Coconut Oil Shimmering Body Lotion and I think this product instantaneously became a holy grail item for me. It moisturizes the skin, it smells nice but it also leaves a beautiful natural looking shimmer on your skin. It isn’t too overpowering but it definitely gives you a perfect glow.

The next item I tried was the Dickinson’s Deep Cleansing Witch Hazel. I always was an advocate for using witch hazel on your skin after you take off your makeup and before you use a toner. I think it really makes a difference especially if you break out often. I use it mainly in my t-zone and I see that it helps with the oiliness in that area. I actually really like the deep cleansing one I tried from this box but Ryan loves it too so he actually stole it from me (as he does to most of my unused skincare products). The last item I tested was THE GLOSS by Revlon and let me tell you, I haven’t been able to find a lip gloss that came close to the I Want Candy Lip Gloss from Beauty Rush by Victoria’s Secret. By no means does this lip gloss taste or smell as good but it definitely came close to the look that the Beauty Rush lip gloss gave! I was so happy with this VoxBox and I want to thank all of the brands as well as Influenster for allowing me to receive this box of products to test for free in exchange for my reviews!

I hope you enjoyed this post and remember to subscribe for email notifications for when I post new content. Make sure to comment down below what your favorite product was from this whole box!

LETS REVIEW THE VOXBOX!

Influenster sent me a whole Dr.Jart+ Cicapair line. I was so surprised and thankful to have gotten it because there were so many full size items of a skincare line that I already love! I tried the whole line and I am obsessed.

I have very dry skin so this skin line actually helped smooth out dry areas and it even helped with my redness that I have on my cheeks. In this box I got the Cicapair Tiger Grass Calming Gel Cream, Tiger Grass Calming Mist, Tiger Grass Cream, the Tiger Grass Serum and the color corrector.

These products were a Godsend and I immediately bought more after I started to run low. I want to thank Influenster and Dr.Jart+ for giving me the opportunity to test these products for free in exchange for my honest reviews! I definitely recommend signing up!

FabFitFun Fall 2019 Box (9/10/2019)

Hey beauties! I am so excited for today’s post because it is time for another FabFitFun box! This 2019 fall season with FabFitFun we got so many amazing products. I’ve always loved FabFitFun and every box I get it makes me love it more and more!

This fall we got a magazine with Meghan Trainor on the cover and I am a huge fan of hers. I love all of her women empowerment songs and she is 100% true to herself which is something I love.

As for products we received Harper and Ari Sugar Exfoliating cubes, which by the way smell amazing! I am super obsessed with these, they are super convenient to use in the shower and they make my skin super soft! The next thing in my box are these Baublebar earrings that I am obsessed with. These earrings will be perfect when trying to bring an outfit to the next level.

I was really happy to find a microfiber hair towel by afterspa. I am obessed with microfiber hair towels because it’s so much easier than wrapping the hair up in a heavy terry cloth towel (which adds to hair breakage). I was also really happy that I got an Amika hair straightener as well. The straightener works really well and I was super happy with it!

As for skincare and hair care products that I was obsessed with was the Human + Kind body lotion that we got in the box. The lotion smells amazing! I am also extremely happy with the Aveda damage remedy hair repair that we got. I used Aveda for a really long time and I feel that this brand is easily overlooked but they have amazing products including their rosemary mint shampoo (to die for). I am also happy that I got Wander Beauty gold eye masks, it was so convenient too because I just ran out of eye masks!

The last item that I got from this season’s box was a cheeseboard! It is gorgeous with a marble insert and it even comes with the cheese knives! This month’s box was amazing, I hope you enjoyed this post and make sure to comment down below your favorite item from this box!

Target Beauty Box July 2019 (7/18/2019)

Hi beauties! In today’s post I am going to be reviewing a Target Beauty Box, I’ve purchased the Target beauty boxes before so I kind of know a little bit of what to expect. I actually found this beauty box on clearance as I was walking through the isles at Target. The original cost of the box was $9.99 but I was able to get it on clearance for $4. The tag said that it was an online purchase so I’m assuming someone bought it online and returned it to the store which is why it was a clearance item. Either way, I thought this beauty box would be perfect to review. 

Since this was a beauty box on clearance I don’t have any way of telling the theme or type of beauty box it is. But at first glance I assumed it was a summer related beauty box because the box itself looked like an ocean/beachy type of art on the box. Of course I was wrong because once I opened the box there was a description card that explained the theme of the box and it also offered an explanation of each product in the box including how to use it and what it does. The theme was gym bag essentials!
The first product I pulled out of this Target Beauty Box was Acure SPF 30 Face Moisturizer. I tested this product out and personally for me it smelled really bad and it was a little too thick for a daily facial moisturizer in my opinion. I like light weight moisturizers so my pores don’t get clogged and my face doesn’t get oily. I feel that this facial moisturizer is not great for the gym if you’re going to be sweating.
The next product I got in this beauty box was Kids Crest strawberry toothpaste. For me I understand the concept of putting toothpaste in a gym bag essentials box but I personally don’t know why they chose strawberry flavored or Kids toothpaste for that matter. I will definitely use it but I was just super confused when I got this in the box.
The third and fourth products that I received from this Target Beauty Box was Simple moisturizing facial wash and Simple Micellar Cleansing Water. These products are definitely my favorite products from this box. I am extremely excited to test these items out and I felt that these made a lot of sense as to why these products would be in a gym bag essentials box. 
The next item I got from this beauty box is a NEXXUS Anti-Frizz Sheet. This is a sheet to rub in your hair to stop your hair from frizzing up. I really liked this product and it actually works very well and it made a lot of sense as to why this would be in a gym essentials beauty box. But, my problem with getting this is that you are only given one small tester sheet. I feel that if I were paying the full $9.99 I would want at least three of these sheets. Since I only paid $4 it wasn’t too big of a deal but I definitely would have returned this beauty box too if I saw one sample tester sheet and a kids toothpaste. 
The last two items I pulled out from this box were two travel size Head & Shoulders shampoo and conditioner. I actually loved these because I am going on a trip soon and I needed shampoo and conditioner but it would also be a fantastic item to add to my gym bag. The scent also smells fantastic. 
Overall, I am halfway happy with this box only because of the small hair care sample and the toothpaste. But everything else really made sense and was in good quantity. I definitely would not have paid the full $9.99 for this box either. I hope you all enjoyed this post and remember to comment down below what your thoughts are on these products.

Influenster VoxBox: VDL Primer Review (6/10/2019)

Hi beauties! I am here today with a ton of energy because I am so excited that I got ANOTHER VoxBox from Influenster. If you don’t know what Influenster is or VoxBoxes, no worries I am here to explain everything down to you in this post. I’m going to be breaking down what Influenster is, how you can get free stuff from Influenster, what VoxBoxes are and how everything works! If you already know this information, feel free to scroll down to the end of this post which talks about the product I got in my VoxBox and the review for it.

So, let’s get down to business (any time I say this I start singing Mulan, lol)!

What is Influenster?

Influenster is a company that sends its users free products in exchange for their reviews. They have an app/website that you can download for free on any Android or iOS phone/ tablet etc. and anyone can join, and on the plus side, it’s completely free! When I say completely, I mean COMPLETELY FREE. Like I said it is a free app, you can join for free and you can get sent products for free (you don’t even have to pay for shipping or the products themselves)!

How can you get free stuff though Influenster?

Well, this is a complicated question, but I do have an answer, just bear with me as I try to explain this in stages.

When you first sign up for Influenster you attach all your social media accounts to your Influenster profile. Influenster collects the amount of people that follow you, are friends with you, and subscribe to you and that gives you an impact score. The higher the impact score the more of a reach you have which betters you chances of getting a VoxBox.

To better your chances even more to getting a VoxBox and being featured on their app, you can level-up on specific categories. This will also help determine what types of VoxBoxes you qualify for. For example, there is the Beauty Junkie and the Fashionista categories, the higher level you have the better chance you have to getting a fashion or beauty related VoxBox.

Another way to better your chances for getting a VoxBox is being active on their app, they have “snaps” that can be completed for your profile which are products that you have already tried on your own that you can review. You can also engage by answering or asking questions about products on the app.

Let’s get back to badges! Influenster runs many badge campaigns that don’t necessarily have to do with getting a VoxBox. You can get a badge just from participating in these types of campaigns. For example, I had gotten a Halloween badge once during the campaign #Hallowin just because I reviewed my favorite candy. Influenster also offers VirtualVoxes, which is an online VoxBox campaign that you can get a free badge just from participating but you are also eligible to win a prize. Sometimes VirtualVoxes include cash back opportunities as well if you use your own money to buy and test a product.

Now, let’s get to what a VoxBox is!

A VoxBox is free products that you are sent from Influenster. Once you get your VoxBox you will let Influenster know that you’ve received it and then you can start unlocking the VoxBox badge. IT IS IMPORTSNT TO NOTE THAT IF YOU WANT TO FURTHER QUALIFY FOR VOXBOXES YOU MUST COMPLETE THE VOXBOX CAMPIGN BADGE ON THEIR APP/ WEBSITE. ALSO, MAKE SURE YOU USE AN EMAIL YOU CHECK FREQUENTLY BECAUSE INFLUENSTER WILL SEND YOU AN EMAIL THAT HAS A QUESTIONARE INSIDE THAT MUST BE COMPLETED IN ORDER TO QUALIFY FOR MORE VOXBOXES. You should also make sure that you are checking your email inbox frequently because Influenster will send you questionnaires saying “You’re in the running for our next VoxBox” and you only have a certain period of time to answer that questionnaire to qualify for a VoxBox.

Unlocking badges requires you to do some different types of steps. Some may require you to post about it on social media, review the item on different websites like Sephora.com or Ulta, and sometimes it could even be posting a review on the Influenster app.

Sometimes after you receive a VoxBox you can also have a chance to receive a MegaVoxBox when Influenster runs Facebook or Twitter parties. This is where you go onto Influenster’s said Twitter or Facebook party and actively tweet/ respond with them and then a winner is chosen out of everyone that is interacting.

Now that the explanation is over with, lets get to the VoxBox I received from Influesnter! Before I get started, I wanted to thank Influenster and VDL for choosing me to get sent this VoxBox for free in exchange for my reviews. So, I got a Korean Beauty primer from the brand VDL and I was not sure how I was going to like it. I love a lot of Korean Beauty products, but this is a brand I never heard of before. I was seriously taken off guard when this product became a staple in my makeup routine so quickly.

This was such an amazing primer because it is almost like the Becca Liquid Skin Perfector and a primer all in one. There is a sparkle to this primer but it isn’t seriously noticeable and that sparkle definitely gives a natural glow to any makeup you apply on top of it. I couldn’t believe how small my pores looked while using this primer and how flawless and glowy I looked with this makeup! I also really liked the generous amount that came in one bottle.

I am super happy with this product and I suggest trying it! I use this primer every day! I hope you enjoyed this post and if you are interested in signing up for Influenster feel free to use my promo link:

FabFitFun Spring 2019 Box (5/17/2019)

Hi beauties! I am super excited to announce that I finally got the FabFitFun Spring 2019 box. I always look forward to these subscription boxes because there’s always super cute items in them and it’s almost like a surprise gift I get! What is FabFitFun? It’s a seasonal subscription box that costs $49.99 per month and you get four boxes per calendar year for each of the seasons (Fall, Spring, Winter and Summer). Also, I am living for the artwork on this month’s subscription box.

I think my favorite boxes I get each year are the Spring and Fall boxes because those are my favorite seasons. There is always something I really love in these boxes and usually they become my go-to item for the whole season. This Spring box I am so excited about all the things that I got!

The one thing that I am super in love with is the black and cream canvas bag, this would be perfect for small trips and even picnics. I don’t know what it is about the springtime, but my mind always goes straight to picnics. Speaking of picnics, I even got a on-the-go picnic set that has plastic plates, forks and knives that are reusable and come in a super cute ombre carrying case. At least now I know I’m not the only one that thinks of picnics during springtime (lol)! The next thing that I already know I love because I’ve used it before is the Ouai leave in conditioner. I used this last summer and I fell in love. I also got some super cute measuring spoons in a copper color; these are so chic, and I can’t wait until I have a home to put these in!

Additionally, I got some Ciate London Extraordinary Translucent Powder which I’ve been meaning to try. I kept seeing it all over social media and I saw some reviews saying it was amazing, but I was so set (no pun intended) on using Hourglass Veil Powder and Laura Mercier Secret Brightening Powder I just kept waiting to buy it. Luckily, good things come to those who wait! I also got Daily Concepts Daily Detox Massaging Brush and a Champagne body scrub which I have been using religiously and I love champagne scented stuff, so I am very happy with how amazing the body scrub smells.

Lastly, I got something I’ve used before which is the Dr.Brandt No More Needles de-puffing cream for your under-eye area. The product is pretty good, and I am excited to see if it works as well as I remember! I hope you enjoyed this post and remember to subscribe for email to be notified when I post new content. Make sure to comment down below what your favorite item is from this month’s box.

Influenster VoxBox: Degree Deodorant (4/24/2019)

Hey everyone! Today’s post is going to be one of my favorite posts that I do on my blog. Why? Because this post has to do with reviewing free products and free is for me. If you want to learn more about how I get these free products then read on. But if you already know how Influenster works then feel free to scroll down after the explanation of Influenster because I will also be reviewing the products I got.

So let’s get into it!!

What is Influenster?

Influenster is a completely free app that is available on Android and Apple phones/tablets. This company gives you free products from thousands of brands, even well known brands that you’ve more than likely heard of or seen before. Did I say completely free? Yes. The app is completely free. Just download it, sign up and get started.

How do I get free products after signing up?

Well it’s easy but also complicated. Let me explain– on this app you can make yourself more eligible to get free products by searching and reviewing products you’ve purchased, answer and ask questions, and you complete snaps. Snaps are sets of reviews that are directed towards you to help you review products you may have had experience with.

What else is a factor of getting free products?

Well a huge factor is your impact score. With Influenster, you connect all of your social media accounts. Influenster then gives you an overall impact score. This impact score is compiled of all the people that you are friends with as well as how many people follow you on social media. The higher the impact score, the higher chance you have of getting free products also known as VoxBoxes.

Another factor is your badges. The more you review specific genres of products, you gain badges for those genres. The more genres you’ve unlocked boost your chances of getting chosen for a VoxBox. The higher level badges should be things you actually like because that will help determine what kinds of VoxBoxes you will receive.

Are there any other badges I can get?

Yes! Sometimes Influenster will run campaigns where you can receive a badge just for editing and uploading picture to your profile using their photo editor in the app or just for making a list, or reviewing a product. If you look at the picture above the badges “#HalloWin”, “#InfluensterEats”, and “#GiftCrush” were all campaigns they ran where I only had to review a product or upload a selfie. There are also VirtualVoxes, Virtual Badges or Virtual Challenges. These are also campaigns ran by Influenster where you can get a badge without receiving a VoxBox. The Virtual badges usually involve you uploading a picture using specific hashtags on your social media accounts, and sometimes it goes as far as taking a photo or testing/buying a product at a store and testing it out. Gaining these badges boosts your possibility of getting a VoxBox.

What happens when I get a VoxBox?

When you get a VoxBox you will check in your VoxBox and then you will complete mandatory activities that include but not limited to following companies on social media, posting photos on your social media accounts and reviewing the products. Once you complete all of the activities then you unlock the badge. It’s not over yet, make sure when you sign up for Influenster you use an email that you have easy access to. I say this because Influenster sends you mandatory time sensitive surveys you have to take through your email.

Now for the product review…

Influenster sent me a VoxBox for Degree Deodorant Wipes. I was super excited about getting this VoxBox because it was the first ever box I got that I was instructed to share with someone else. That was super cool to me and I really loved that aspect of this VoxBox. I got wipes for myself and for my boyfriend Ryan. We both tested this product out so I will let you all know both of our reviews.

In this VoxBox I got a men’s deodorant wipes package and a women’s deodorant wipes package. The women’s deodorant wipes in the scent Citrus and Bergamot which smelled nice and citrus-y. I felt that these wipes were just as good as any stick or roll on deodorant. The only thing I noticed was that the scent didn’t last too long. Ryan tested out the men’s deodorant wipes in the scent Cool Rush. Him and I loved the smell of his wipes and this is what he said about them: “The wipes are really great. I don’t use them for my main deodorant because I don’t think it’s as strong as a stick deodorant. I’m a guy, so I need something that will last all day and the scent goes away after 5-10 minutes. Otherwise, I like to use these wipes to freshen up. It’s great when you’re working all day and you can just wipe down with them.” Overall, we liked these wipes and I want to thank Influenster and Degree for sending me this complimentary VoxBox in exchange for my reviews.

I hope you enjoyed this post and if you are interested in signing up for Influenster feel free to use my referral link: Join Influenster Now. Make sure to leave a comment down below what your thoughts are on these wipes and remember to subscribe for email notifications for when I post new content.

BootayBag April 2019 (4/14/2019)

Hey everyone! I hope y’all had an amazing day today. I wanted to pop in and show you all the BootayBag from this month and also talk a little about why I love this monthly subscription so much. So let’s get into it.

BootayBag is a subscription where they send you underwear each month for $9-$13 per month. The price all depends on what type of subscription you have. I opt to only get one pair a month which costs me $9 a month. You can even choose what kinds of underwear you want and what size you want to get. They have no thongs option which means you’ll only get full coverage underwear, they have only thong which is when you only get thong underwear and lastly there is mix it up where you get surprised. My subscription is no thong and I only get one pair per month.

This month I got these super cute neon coral and yellow underwear. They are honestly perfect for the upcoming summer months and they are super comfortable. These are definitely going to be my go-to the next few months. I always have a few seriously comfy underwear that I continuously go back to because honestly I don’t wanna wear something that is restricting and is just plain uncomfortable.

I really love this subscription because honestly, as women we all know how easy it is to 1) forget to buy underwear 2) run out of clean underwear and 3) ruin your underwear. This takes away the need for me to remember to buy it, keeps me from running out and replaces old/ruined underwear. Plus it’s super affordable unlike other stores that charge $15 for a pair of underwear. If you’re interested in getting this subscription feel free to use my referral link: https://bootaybag.com/?smile_referral_code=Mhc33EWE&st_intent=st%3Areferrals%3Acustomer-offers%3AMhc33EWE&utm_campaign=smileio_referrals&utm_medium=referral_url

This link will give you 50% off of one months subscription. I hope you enjoyed this post and remember to subscribe for email notifications for when I post new content.

Winter FabFitFun 2019 (2/24/2019)

Hey everyone! I wanted to share what was in my FabFitFun box for this winter. I was super excited to get this box as I am every season. This box only comes four times a year but it had the best items inside. It’s one of my favorite boxes out of all subscription boxes I’ve tried. So let’s get into what’s inside this magical box.

This might honestly be the best box I’ve gotten yet. This FabFitFun 2019 winter season I got some amazing items and products. The first thing that I’m absolutely in love with is the Mark & Graham tan knit scarf. It’s lightweight but huge and gorgeous.

Something else I absolutely loved in this box was the Brooke Burke Body exercise disks. These are so amazing and with the disks we get free workouts. They are great for at home workouts and quick workouts for days you don’t have enough time. They’re easy to use and are great quality.

The next thing I loved in this box was the full-size Oribe dry shampoo. I love this dry shampoo and always had travel sizes because I constantly got it in my many subscription boxes. As you may know I cancelled my subscriptions so I ended up running out of the dry shampoo. I was happy to finally own a full-size version of this product.

The last favorite item of mine is the Moroccan Gold Series Hair Moisturizing Treatment Mask. This mask works so well for my dry and bleached hair. It makes my hair very silky and takes away a lot of the frizz that comes with my naturally curly hair. I use this mask twice a week now and it’s become a holy grail product for me.

The other items may not be listed as my favorite but they are still just as amazing. I got the PUR Cosmetics Be Your Selfie eyeshadow palette, thrive cosmetics highlighting stick, Anthropologie body cream, Blaq eye masks, and Ahava hydration cream mask. These things are all amazing and this box was definitely one for the books.

I hope you enjoyed this post and if you are interested in signing up for FabFitFun feel free to use my referral link and get $10 to spend: http://xo.fff.me/jal5G.

Influenster VoxBox Unboxing: Garnier Fructis Curl Treats (1/21/2019)

Hey everyone! I’m super excited to announce that I got yet another VixBox from Influenster. Influenster sends me free products to test out and you can get free products from them too! Just read below how you can get free products to test for just your reviews in exchange. For the next few paragraphs I will explain what Influenster is and how to get a completely free VoxBox. If you already know what Influenster is, feel free to skip through these next few explanations.

So what is Influenster? Influenster is a website and app that allows people to share their opinions on products and get free things in exchange for those reviews. Influenster is completely free to join and you don’t even have to pay for the item or even shipping when you get products sent to your door. This does come with a twist though– any product they send you, you have to follow Influenster’s guidelines on how to review the products. You have full ability to not like or like the products but if you want to continue getting free products you have to make sure you follow the steps Influenster instructs you to take when reviewing the product. This could be to reviewing it on the company’s website, or just sharing a photo of the product.

To make that last explanation a little more clear I’m going to discuss what a VoxBox is, how you get them and what you need to do after you get it. So, a VoxBox is a box you get sent with free product(s) inside and yes sometimes there is multiple items in a box. It costs you nothing to get but you need to do something in order to be in the drawing for one.

You have to review products and earn expert badges. There are tons of different categories you can be an expert in, and this will direct what kinds of boxes you will be getting. So for example, I got an expert badge in Beauty by reviewing a ton of beauty products on the Influenster app and I get mostly beauty related VoxBoxes. There are also themed badges that come around during holidays that you can get as well. For example, I received a badge for Halloween just by clicking on the badge and completing the assignment of reviewing my favorite candy on the Influenster app. The more badges you get whether expert or themed badges, the higher your chances are in getting a VoxBox.

Another way you can up your chances of getting a VoxBox is by connecting all of your social media accounts. This will go towards your impact score. Your impact score is a complied number of followers, subscribers, and friends across all of your social media accounts. The higher your impact score (i.e. the more followers, subscribers and friends you have) the more likely it is that you’ll get a VoxBox. You now can also follow other friends and people on the Influenster app.

Something else that will help your chances of getting a VoxBox you’d like is to do Snaps. Snaps are reviews of products that Influenster thinks you would enjoy more or know more about. You can also make video reviews, as well as lists on Influenster of your favorite products, best products for winter etc. and you can answer/ask questions and this will give you points toward your discussion posts.

Important things that are MANDATORY to get a VoxBox is to look out for emails that say you have a chance of getting a VoxBox and VoxBox surveys. These will come through the email you use for your account so make sure that you choose an email that isn’t too cluttered so these emails don’t get lost. Also, after you get the VoxBox you will get an email survey about the VoxBox you just reviewed. If you want more VoxBoxes that review is mandatory and there is a deadline for when you can complete the review which is usually a couple of days.

What do you do once you get a VoxBox? Well if you go onto your profile on Influenster there will be a badge that pops up and is related to the product you got. It will either say the company’s name or the product you are testing. Once you click on that badge there are a bunch of little assignments that Influenster asks you to complete. These are mandatory to do as well in the time frame they give you (VoxBox “campaigns” last from a month to a few weeks). These little assignments will ask you to share photos on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram, review on Influenster, the company’s website or Sephora/Ulta etc. Sometimes they will ask you to make a Pinterest Board that is related to the product and other easy activities. Once you complete them you will earn the badge and this will help your chances of getting another VoxBox and a lot of the time it puts you in the drawing for a prize from that company or a MEGA VoxBox which is a very large box with a ton of products inside. Influenster also throws Twitter, and Facebook “parties” for certain VoxBox “campaigns” and if you live tweet or live engage with them on Facebook you will be in the drawing for a MEGA VoxBox or more products from the company.

Now that we’ve covered all the bases, let’s discuss my VoxBox from Garnier.

I got two products to test for free in exchange for my review. These products are full size which is absolutely amazing. The one product I got was their Butter Hydration Cream and the Jelly Shaping. These products are supposed to give your hair 24 hour frizz control, hydrate your hair and keep your locks looking luscious. I followed the instructions two separate times and applied while my hair was damp. I absolutely loved the outcome of this product. My hair looked shiny, bouncy, my curls were more defined and there was minimal frizz. I personally feel that the Jelly works the best! Overall, I love these products and I am thankful to have gotten this for free to test.
