Influenster recently sent me the “Goddess VoxBox” to review. This box is full of products to make you feel beautiful and glamorous all summer!
What is Influenster?
Influenster is a program that sends free products in exchange for honest reviews.
How It Works:
When you first join Influenster, you will need to complete a series of questionnaires. These surveys help Influenster to match you with products and brands that are a good match. Influenster puts a strong focus on social media and you are scored on your social “impact.” Your impact score is determined by the number of followers you have on different social media platforms like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Tumblr and Youtube. You can also increase your impact score by connecting your blog and inviting friends to join.
Aside from your social impact score, you can also increase your chances of being asked to join a campaign by completing “snaps” (small surveys about your hobbies, likes/dislikes, habits) when they are available. You can also review a variety of products through Influenster. Those reviews are also a big factor in whether or not you will be chosen for upcoming campaigns. I try to log in each week and do at least 5-10 reviews.
When you are chosen for a campaign, you will receive an email letting your know. You won’t know what specific products you are receiving though. Once you receive your “voxbox” you will need to do a series of activities to earn “badges.” For example, you may be asked to post a phone of your Influenster box on Instagram or tweet about one of the products. The more activities you complete, the greater the likelihood of getting asked to do more in the future.
The big thing about Influenster is honesty. Brands need your honest feedback so if you don’t like a product, it’s ok to be completely honest about your dislikes.
Pantene Expert Intense Hydration Shampoo & Conditioner: This is an ultra-moisturizing shampoo and conditioner that not only hydrates but softens hair. My hair is not typically super dry but because I do a lot of heat styling on a daily basis, my ends do tend to get pretty dry. I have noticed that my hair is a lot softer and more manageable since using this shampoo and conditioner though!
Always Radiant with FlexFoam Pads: Fortunately, I haven’t had a need for these products since receiving the box but they are waiting in my lady “stash” for when that time comes. The pads are made to be super absorbent and can be worn for up to 8 hours (though that seems a little lengthy to me!) They are also flexible so they are more comfortable and do not feel bulky like other feminine pads.
SinfulColors Nail Polish in Glazy Sunday: I own a number of Sinful Colors polishes but this is a new shade for me. This is part of their Porcelain Matte shades and it is a soft, dusty rose shade. It does have a hint of lavender to it as well. Sinful Colors are not my favorite formulas but they do have a gorgeous selection of colors and finishes.
Dickinson’s Enhanced Witch Hazel Alcohol-Free Hydrating Toner: This bottle is huge! I have always heard that you can use witch hazel as a toner but I have never tried it. This toner is designed to hydrate and nourish skin with hylaronic acid and vitamin E. I would not say this is extremely hydrating in my opinion. I have somewhat oily skin though so that’s probably best for me. It did leave my skin feeling clean however but I did notice a slight tingling feeling on my face that was a bit irritating.
Cutex Advanced Revival Nail Polish Remover Pads: I have used these in the past and absolutely love them! They are small pads but effective enough to remove polish from all 10 fingers or toes. Plus, because they are small, they are great for popping in your purse for last minute touch ups or removal.
Downy Fresh Protect with In-Wash Febreze Odor Defense: These are described as “deodorant for your clothes.” They are designed to induze fabric with motion-activating technology that helps neutral odors as your move during the day. I tried them and they did leave my clothes smelling amazing! I’m not sure I noticed the scent much throughout the day as I wore my clothes but I also didn’t notice any bad odors either!
Ebates: So this isn’t really a product but it it a promotional item for Ebates. If you are not familiar with Ebates, it is a great site that offers you cash back for shopping online. It is completely free to join and offers cash back at over 2,000 well nown stores. I have been using Ebates for years and have earned a total of $130 back. They send out checks quarterly.

Verdict: This was another great box from Influenster. It included some favorite as well as some new products!
