Holiday VoxBox 2012

My Holiday VoxBox 2012

I received my Holiday VoxBox from a company called Influenster complementary for testing and reviewing purposes. I got alot of goodies to try out and I will explain what I loved about them or what I didn't love about them.

This is NYC New York Color Liquid Lipshine. Its sold for $2.49 in Walmart, Walgreens ect. This particular one I tried out was amazing. The color is Nude York City. I love the smell of it and the texture it has when applied. It smells like vanilla, which I love. There is not taste to this Lip shine.

This package is called EBOOST. It is an all natural energy powder you add to water. You can also purchase then in shots. The price for the powder version is $28.00 for a box of 20 packets. I found this to taste like vitamins. Im not big on Energy drinks but this one had a great flavor added to it. I got to try out the ACAI POMEGRANATE. I really enjoyed the flavor and it really does give me much needed energy.

This is the Goody QuickStyle Brush. I have seen these at Walmart. The retail price is $11.99. What this brush does is cut  your hair drying time in half. When you hair is wet just use this brush to soak up water. It actually only saved me maybe five minutes of drying time for me. I think it just depends on how long you brush your hair for while using this brush.

This Masque is called Montagne Jeunesse Face Mask. They are sold for a low  price. (Under $2) I absolutely love these masks. I feel the exfoliate and tighten my pores. I find it relaxing to use these masques. They smell good and dont dry my skin out. I have also found a ton of these at Walmart.

This  is Called Quaker Real Medleys Oatmeal. They cost around $1.79 a cup. I love that they are travel size. I can take them anywhere and so can my kids. It takes maybe 1 minute to heat it up in the microwave. This Oatmeal is different but better. It has real fruit and nuts which I love . I did get tired of eating plain oatmeal. I recommend this Oatmeal.

I also got to try out these Kiss Nail Dress. I have never used any product like this before . I had a great experience with them some people may have an issue with sizing them to their nails but just try them out different ways it show you on the package. I cut them out to make different shaped tips. Make sure you dont touch the sticky part of the nail dress alot and clean your nails with polish remover first so they will stick with no issues. The Kiss Nail Dress can be purchased for $6.99 at Walmart, Walgreens, ect.

I also got a discount card for Sole Society. If you use the code before 1/31/13 then you will get $25 off any one pair of shoes you choose. The code is INFLUENSTER25. The shoes are real classy and fashionable. I think every shoe cost around $45 so with the discount you anly would have to pay $25 for a pair. I think thats wonderful. What a great deal! 

I will list all of the links to their websites so you can check them out.

I received this oatmeal from Influenster for me to test and review. I have never tried this oatmeal before. This Real Medleys Oatmeal cost $1.79 a cup. Yes they sell it by the cup. So this is a great breakfast or snack to travel with. Real Medleys is packed with wholesome multigrains and chunks of real fruits or nuts. It is so good. I would like to have a whole case of it. My favorite flavor is the Cherry Pistachio. All you have to do is add water to the cup, pop it in the microwave and enjoy . My children love it and they can eat it on the way to school. We are always on a hurry so this oatmeal is perfect for us and our home. All it takes is about 1 minute to heat up and you are done. No messy clean ups and that makes me one happy mommy.

Here is a few links to help you learn more and find out what flavor of Quaker Real Medleys is right for you:



I have tried EBOOST. EBOOST is a all natural energy drink that comes in a powder or a shot. It has a weird taste to it at first because I had no idea what to expect. It taste sweet with the flavoring of vitamins and  Acai Pomegranate which is the flavor I had tried. A company called Influenster had sent it complimentary for me to test and review in a Vox Box.
    When preparing the powdered version of EBOOST you want to get a good size bottle or cup. Add water along with some ice. I love my drinks ice cold especially if Im working out. Then you would just add the powder and mix it all up. Then enjoy.Its pretty simple and quick. No mess.

      EBOOST uses real ingredients, stuff you’ve heard of like Vitamin C, Vitamin D, Green Tea, Vitamin B-12 and Folic Acid. And the stuff you might not have heard of: Quercetin, 5-HTP, Resveratrol, Huperzine-A. For a box of 20 EBOOST Powder cost around $28.00. I know alot of people who love to work out and have not tried this drink. I think it perfect for people who work out or for the stay at home mom or dad that needs the energy to keep up with bills, kids, and the house cleaning.I know as a stay at home mom that EBOOST helps me wake up and gets my energy going so I can have a productive day. Its also gluten and soy free which is a big plus.

"Kiss Nail Dress"

              Kiss Nail Dress
I have to say that I was very nervous trying out the Kiss Nail Dress. I have never used anything other than fingernail polish. I thought there was no way this Nail Dress could even compare or even last as long as finger nail polish. A company called Influenster  sent this item complimentary to me to review. So I think this product really surprised me. I applied them and they were easy to file down. I didnt have to buy a finger nail file, a file came in the Kiss nail Dress package.The fingernail file also had two sides for two different purposes . I even cut the strips to make tips for my finger nail. You can also use the Kiss Nail Dress for your toes. The Nail Dress lasted almost over a week on my finger nails. Washing my hands did not affect the Nail Dress at all.

Here is how I applied the Nail dress to my nails.

  • Clean nails with finger nail polish remover or Alcohol
  • Measure your nails size with the diffrent strips of Nail dress to make sure you get the perfect fit for your nails
  • Apply the Nial Dress near cuticle not on the cuticle then smooth out Nail Dress
  • Fold down Nail dress over your fingernail and file off excess Nail dress
To remove the Nail Dress just simply peel off slowly. Its that simple

The Kiss Nail dress cost around  $6.99 at Kmart, CVS, Walgreens, Walmart, Rite Aid, Target (all mass retailers and drugstores). They are very easy
to find.On in minutes, off in seconds without remover. Nail Dress is available in 21 different styles, many of them featuring 3-dimensional jeweled designs.
With 28 strips in each package, you can cut up your extras to create designs that can be used on top of polished or artificial nails.

Here is some websites you can go to to learn more
About Kiss Nail Dress:

As a stay at home mom I have no time to wait on my nails to dry. Im always in a hurry and my kids always want to be picked up or touch my fingernail before they get a chance to dry. When using the Nail Dress it saves me time and I dont have to stress about my nails getting damaged. I am happy with this product and I cant wait to try new designs 

This style I have on my fingers is called Teddy

“Montagne Jeunesse Face Masque

 Montagne Jeunesse Face Masque

I have tried the Montagne Face Masque. I used the Clean Up Mud Masque. It was perfect for my skin because this masque was a clay masque. I have very oily skin so I felt it was perfect for me. I did not buy this masque. A company called Influenster sent me  this product complimentary to test through Influenster’s VoxBox program.

The company Montagne Jeunesse sells so many different kinds of masques for different skin types. If you have skin problems or want a masque that can help you for whatever your skin care needs are I recommend Montagne Jeunesse Masques.

The first time I applied my masque was after I got out of the shower before I went to bed. It was easy to apply. It did not have a bad odor. The one package I have lasted me a while.(More than one use). The thing about using the masque more than once is that the package is not resealable. I had to get a clip and fold my masque package over and clamp it with some sort of clip. Other than that my skin felt amazing after I cleaned the masque off my face. My skin was not oily and it didn't make me break out either. I felt very refreshed afterwards.

Whether you enjoy looking after your skin, or being pampered, you will absolutely enjoy one of these "Life’s Little Pleasures"! With a huge array to choose from, our face masques are packed with the most delicious natural ingredients and are bursting with luscious fragrances.

The masques are under $2.00 at Wal-Mart, Ulta, Kroger, Walgreens, CVS, they are relatively easy to find. They have not been tested by any animals and is Natural Paraben-Free Vegetarian. This would make  great gifts for your friends and family.

Here is some links to help you find the right Masque for you or your friends and family :

Have fun with these great masques. Enjoy having better looking and feeling skin.

Goody QuikStyle

 Goody QuickStyle Brush

Thanks to Influenster for complementary sending me my Goody QuickStyle Hair brush for reviewing and testing  purposes from their Vox Box program. I love Influenster. Its alot of fun.

 Thank you everyone for joining me on my blog. I would just like to tell all of you information on the Goody QuickStyle Hair brush. Im sure you have seen this brush in the stores. If you have not, I know this brush looks a little odd and different from the brushes you currently use. I have some tips and information to share with you all to help you make sense of this unique brush.

First of all this brush cost $12.99 at Walmart, Target, CVS, Walgreens.The GOODY® QUIKSTYLE™ Paddle brush works like a towel and brush in one. The super absorbent (and antimicrobial) microfiber removes 30% of water from wet hair to help speed your drying time! You can effortlessly detangle right out of the shower and continue using it while you blow dry! Sounds great dont it?

I recommend using this brush as soon as you get out of the shower. It really cuts down your blow drying time. I have the Half rounded one but there is also a  Paddle brush. Two different brushes to choose from.

The holes in the brush allow the brush to breath and dry so bacteria wont form

 If you would like to check out the websites and find more information on this brush or you would like to purchase it just or learn more about this brush click on the website links below:

NYC New York Color Liquid Lipshine

I Love My NYC New York Color Liquid Lip Shine

Let me start off by saying that if Influenster never sent me NYC Lip Shine I would not have knew about it. I was sent this lip shine in my Holiday Vox Box along with many other products to try out and review.

I was so excited when I saw this lip shine. I had never tried it before. I was hoping it did not have that irritating sticky feeling alot of my other glosses had. Well I had to try it out immediately. To my surprise it was not sticky. It was very smooth and it smelled like vanilla. In case you wondering the name of the lip shine I have, Its the Nude York  City (582). Its my favorite so far. 

The price these Lip Shines are priced at is around $2.49 a piece. That is a great deal for lip gloss. Every time I go to purchase some lip gloss I pay around $6 or $7. The NYC New York Color Liquid Lipshine is priced at a To Good To Be True Price but I think they are thinking more about their customers and how to make them happy. I am very happy. If you would like to purchase this product I will post a link below that can direct you to a store near you that sells it and check out my other links for alot more information on their Facebook and Influenster review pages:
