I'm an Influenster: UPDATE!

And I'm enjoying every minute of it.

Let me back up. I joined about 2 months ago and was totally overwhelmed and confused. I wasn't sure what to do, so I just started clicking away (taking these surveys and reviews) and before I knew it, I got an e-mail saying I qualified for a VoxBox. I wasn't sure what that meant, but I knew it had to be good.

Fast forward to about 2 weeks ago. My parents were visiting and I told my mom about the site. While they were here, I received another e-mail telling me my VoxBox was on it's way. Now, let me remind you...I wasn't sure what it was and I NEVER gave them my NEW address. I was a bit confused as to how the wonderful mystery box was going to show up on my doorstep and to be honest, I didn't think it was.

Well, low and behold, it did... yesterday!! In a nice white box with a pink heart on it. Mrs. D asked if I was expecting a package and I told her no, but I'll accept it anyways. I looked and it said Influenster. I was totally stoked and excited to open my first ever VoxBox. (This was extra exciting because I have never won anything in my life, so this to me was like winning!)

Now onto what I signed up to!

I received 5 products in this box: 

  • Olay Fresh Effects- Powered Contour Cleaning System
  • Olay Fresh Effects- Shine Minimizing Cleanser 
  • Secret Clinical Strength Stress Response Antiperspirant
  • Skinny Girl Daily On-The-Go Bars
  • Not Your Mother's Beach Babe Texturizing Sea Salt Spray
I have only tested 4 out of the 5 products so far, so keep a look out for the last review to come this week.

Product #1 & 2: Olay Fresh Effects Cleansing Brush and Cleanser.

Overall Grade: A
Comments: I loved the vibrating brush. It's so small that it doesn't take up space in my shower and I can bring it with me when I travel. The cleanser smells delicious. I didn't notice a difference in the shine department with my face. It's either because my makeup primer and veil do a pretty good job covering it up or the cleanser did it's job.

Product #3: Secret Clinical Strength Stress Response
Overall Grade: B UPDATE: A!!
Comments: The only reason I'm giving this a B is because I can't tell whether it worked because I didn't do much today or I didn't experience any stress today. I will wear it the rest of the week and I'm sure to be stressed at work, so I'll keep you posted. BUT, it is by far the best smelling antiperspirant I've ever had!! UPDATE: I haven't used another antiperspirant yet. I love that I put it on at night right after my shower and it works the whole next day! And it still smells so good!! :)

Product #4: Not Your Mother's Beach Babe Texturizing Sea Salt Spray
I put my hair half up to try to style it, but nothing worked.
Overall Grade: D
I tried this spray this morning after a shower. I let my hair air dry for like 10 minutes before I sprayed it in...I even followed the directions on the back about styling your hair with your fingers after you've sprayed it in. But, later in the day I asked Mrs. D if it was just me, or did my hair look greasy and she agreed, it just did NOT look clean. I smells nice, which the only reason I didn't give it an F. I'll maybe try spraying it in completely wet hair or completely dry hair to see if it makes a different, so we'll see. Did anyone else experience this issue?

Product #5: Skinny Girl On-The-Go Bar
Review coming soon. (I'm eating it tomorrow for a snack before lunch!)

Funny story. Last night, I called my parents to let them know that it's not a hoax and I received my VoxBox and my Dad asked if men can join it because it sounded like fun!! So now, Mr. K is on Influenster! GO DAD!

"I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes."  -Thank you Influenster!!


  1. I love Influenster and apparently I should be getting another voxbox soon!

  2. I'm on influenster too! I received an email saying I'll be getting a box so hopefully it'll come soon! I'm excited to hear your review of the Skinny Girl bar :)

  3. I have the texturizing spray and LOVE it. I have naturally super curly hair though and I think it makes a difference.
