Blush VoxBox Review- Influenster

Hello everyone. Today I have a review of the Blush VoxBox from Influenster. All the products in this box were geared toward summer weddings which was lucky because I was the maid of honor in my best friend's wedding in June. In my next post I'll show you the nails I did to match our dresses.

I'll be honest, last month was hectic and I did a crappy job of taking pictures. A lot of this stuff got thrown in my bag and ravenously torn apart in the madness of pre-wedding prep so behold, a bad off-center cell phone picture of the eyelashes from Ardel.

The bride (Kate, left in the picture above) also picked up some Ardel lashes, but the ones she got were a little less full and I think they look a lot more natural. Mine were super dramatic and fun to wear, but I think maybe just a tiny bit too much for me, or at least for this particular occasion. I was also pretty rushed putting them on and not really pro at application in the first place. I wish I'd had about 30 more minutes to get them just perfect. Overall they weren't crazy hard to work with. I love the look of fake lashes for dressing up (Halloween, parties, etc) so I'll definitely check out more of Ardel's range of lashes for my next event.

Next up is the Secret Clinical Strength antiperspirant in ooh-la-la lavender. I already use a Secret antiperspirant so I was actually happy to try this one vs the last two deodorant offerings from Influenster. Lavender isn't one of my favorite scents, and I rarely buy scented products anyway, but I'm happy to say this has a very pleasant smell that's not overwhelming at all. This trial size was perfect to throw in my carry-on for the flight. It worked great and kept me smelling good all day even in the summer heat for this outdoor wedding.

These Pantene Intense Hydration samples, however, didn't make it into my carry-on. At 3.9 fl oz, that's .9 more than is allowed in the liquids bag. Who am I kidding, I skipped the shampoo and loaded that bag up with nail polish anyway! I did try them once I got back though and am liking them. They smell incredible. Like cookie dough and flowers and unicorn fluff... or something. I can't quite pick out the smells, but it's good. They also give my hair a ton of moisture without weighing it down or making it look oily which can be a problem for my fine hair. Below you can see how much body my bangs have even a half day after washing with this shampoo (conditioner added just to the ends of my hair).

I also got a sample of Micellar Make-up Remover Wipes from Simple. These were great to throw in my bag for the trip since I couldn't take my liquid eye make-up remover. They do a good job getting off foundation, eye shadow and regular eye liner but had some trouble with the waterproof liquid eye liner. I'd recommend these for travel and quick removal of make-up when you're feeling lazy. The wipes were very moist and gentle on my skin. The only thing I didn't like was the residue feeling left over after using them. I'd always plan to give my face a quick rinse afterwards to solve that issue.

The last thing in the box was a coupon for 15% off accessories at the Perfect Details website. These jeweled accessories really are gorgeous and I did need a clip for my hair, but I received it so close to the wedding that I didn't have time to wait for shipping.

This was a great VoxBox overall. I liked all of the products and was able to put them all to good use (except you, Perfect Details). Are there any that you're curious to try?
