Influenster LoveBox Review!

Finally after weeks of seriously testing out all of these products from my Influenster Love VoxBox, I am going to blog about how I feel about each product.

First, let me explain what influenster is, or maybe I should let influenster explain,
"Community of trendsetters invited to share their lifestyles and show off their influence to qualify for personalized product shipments, special rewards and exclusive deals from the brands they love. Members love testing the latest products, giving insightful feedback, and spreading the word on their favorite finds!"

Now that you have an understanding lets jump right into the product reviews!

The packaging was pretty simple and the products were packed with care. My package came pretty quickly, within a week of me getting the confirmation that I was going to receive the LoveBox.

The items I received in my VoxBox:
Gillete Venus & Olay razor
Kiss Nail Dress
Ghirardelli Gourment Milk Bar
Truvia Natural Sweetener
Stash Tea

Kiss Nail Dress:
I absolutely L.O.V.E.D. this product! I am such a nail addict! Anything that has anything to do with nails, nail polish, nail growth, etc. I am all about it. I was so excited when I pulled this out of the box because I have never used sticker nail products before. So the way this product works is, you have 28 "fashion strips", and trust me you don't need more than 28, they come in all different sizes and will last you AGES. Once you find the sizes for your desired nails you just stick them on, file the excess away and you're done. No waiting, no mess, quick and simple. I loved the design I had, but I didn't want to wear my whole hand this pattern so what I would do is have a few accent nails.(Pictures below)

 Kiss says that this nail dress last for up to 2 weeks, and to my surprise they did! I mean I didn't put them under intense dish washing test, but they lasted under normal conditions. They were so convenient to have as well, made my nail process so much quicker because of "no drying time"! I also got so many compliments on them. Anything that shortens time, and still gets compliments is alright in my book.

Since this is my first formal product review ever, I have to come up with a grading systems for products, I guess a 1-5 scale will do.
Kiss Nail Dress: 4 out of 5.


Stash Tea:
Stash Tea is a product that I have used before, I didn't know that there were so many different flavors that they had of tea, so this was a fun one to test out. There were 9 different flavors of tea and there were 18 tea bags, which is a pretty awesome sampler if you ask me.
The flavors were:
Acai berry, Blueberry superfruit, Chamomile, Cinnamon apple chamomile, Lemon ginger, Licorice spice, Mango passion fruit, Peppermint, and Wild raspberry hibiscus.
I am a heavy tea drinker, so I was excited about the options, so far I have tried the Chamomile and it was great! There are a lot of bags in there, so hopefully I can get through them and give a better review.
Stash Tea: No grade yet (Stay tuned)

Truvia Natural Sweetner:
Truvia sweetener was really good! I am a splenda user and when this came around I was a little reluctant to try it, but when I received it in the VoxBox, I said why not test it. Let me tell you, I am glad that I did! The taste isn't so chalky like other sugar alternatives, it also doesn't leave that awful after taste, that your grandmother's sugar alternative does. I was so pleased with the taste and quality of Truvia, I went out and bought some to have after the sampler was done. This works great for me as well because it is CALORIE FREE, and I am on a weight loss journey. Anything that is calorie free is my bestest friend. Yes. Bestest.

Gillette Venus & Olay:
Okay before I get into this product, let me gather myself.... This has to be the greatest razor I have used in a VERY long time! I can't stop raving about this product to everyone I know... Yes males as well! I really and truly did not expect my love for this razor to run so deep, I don't think I will use another razor in my life. I am usually a skeptic of female razors because many have failed me. Yep, you are looking (well, reading) at a male razor user. I hated how many passes I had to make with other female razors to get my legs to feel as smooth as I wanted them to, and when I did, my hair literally felt like it grew back the next day, BUT with this razor! this razor! honey... this razor, that was not the case at all. One pass was all it took. one freakin pass?! I was amazed, like, legit screaming in the shower. My legs felt like baby jesus' backside and it lasted for a couple weeks. The razor has 2 bars surrounding the actual blades, which means, no shaving cream needed! It smells amazing, like coconuts and shea butter had a baby. This razor changed my life (bit of an exaggeration, but you get it).

Gillette Venus & Olay razor: 5 out of 5


Ghirardelli Gourmet Milk Bar:
My last product I received, but one of the first thing I reviewed, and by review I mean ate was Ghirardelli Gourmet Milk Bar. Now I am a Lindt chocolate girl myself, so with that said, this chocolate bar was pretty good, if I was forced to choose between this and Lindt chocolate, I would have to chose Lindt. Some pluses though; the chocolate is extremely smooth and you can taste the quality of the chocolate, which was great. This is great time of the month chocolate!

Ghirardelli Gourmet Milk Bar: 3 out of 5
