The first product is the Clearasil Daily Clear Refreshing Superfruit Wash. The box came with three trial-sized packets. I was hoping this was going to be a great product but, honestly, it's just another face wash. It's infused with raspberry and cranberry extracts but the scents still was not appealing to me whatsoever. At $6.49 a bottle, I wouldn't say this product is worth it.
The next product is Airheads Xtreme Bites. Why a college student would need ANOTHER candy to add to the dreaded "Freshman 15" I'll never know but, whatevs. These candies were gummy bites that claim to have the "perfect balance of sweet and sour." I honestly only tasted the sweet. Unfortunately, this product was another disappointment.Don't even get me started on how gaudy these nail strips are. This product, Kiss Nail Dress, came with probably the tackiest pattern you could imagine. With the neon colors and the mix of animal print they couldn't be less my style. For this reason, I didn't actually try them on. Plus they wouldn't be allowed at my neutral-nails-only workplace. But I do feel that stick on nails are kind-of overrated. I understand the appeal when it comes to the design but I feel it's easier to just paint your nails. At $6.99 a box, I'd just buy a nice bottle of OPI and call it a day.
The next product is something that I may actually start enjoying. The NYC Big Bold Plumping & Shine Lip Gloss (that is such a mouthful) claims to be a lip gloss that adds up 50% more volume and four hours of shine. I wouldn't exactly say that's true. Do I feel a tingling sensation when I first apply the gloss? Yes. But that could just be the peppermint I taste and smell. Four hours of shine? I don't think so. This gloss lasted an hour, max. Although it doesn't really do what it claims, this gloss is very pretty. The color I received, Pleasantly Plump Pink, is really sheer pink shade that enhances your natural lip color. Another great thing about this product is the doe-foot applicator; it's huge! One sweep and it covers your lips! I'll probably keep this product in my bag for the color, but it's not very plumping.
Last product in the Vox Box is Tide Pods. This little plastic packages contain detergent, stain fighter, and brightener. You pop them into the washing machine and they do all of the work for you. Easy right? Perfect for the college student living in a dorm. There's not need for clunky tubs of fabric softener and detergent and no need for measuring! Just pop one in and done! I used these on my sheets and let me tell you they do the job. My sheets are clean and they smell good. Do you really need anything else?
All in all, this box was pretty disappointing. Of the five products, I only completely enjoyed about one. I feel bad know that I received these products for free but I'm doing my job, right? I'm allowed to have my own opinions. Nothing truly offended me in quality and nothing really wowed me either. I do appreciate that these companies and Influenster valued my opinions, though. I can't wait for the next box!
Are any of you influensters? What vox boxes have you received?
