Recently, I was lucky enough to be selected for the #BossBabeVoxBox campaign on Influenster. Before you keep reading, yes–this means I received everything in this article for free. But even though getting free stuff in the mail is undeniably awesome, I promise to keep this blog post unbiased. Let’s take a look at what I found inside my very first VoxBox, so you can decide for yourself if Influenster is worth it.
When I opened up the VoxBox, I was greeted with an interesting array of items:
- Nature’s Bounty Hair, Skin & Nails gummies
- Korres Greek Yoghurt Cleanser
- Two Chameleon Color Sprays from Eva NYC
- A charcoal face mask from C’est Moi
- An offer to try the Taste of Home subscription box for the cost of shipping (which unfortunately sold out before I got the chance)
I thought the Influenster team did a great job of assembling a fun array of items for members to try. I know some VoxBoxes only feature one or two items, so I was really excited to get a whole bunch instead. They did a really good job with the curation on this box, in my opinion.
My favorite item by far was the vitamins from Nature’s Bounty. It’s funny, because I wasn’t that excited about receiving these from the get-go. But after I actually tried them, I found myself looking forward to them after dinner again the next night. They taste like actual candy gummies from the halcyon days of youth, and that’s a win in my book. I haven’t been taking them long enough to notice any difference in my skin or hair, but they’re downright delicious.
My least favorite “item” technically wasn’t even an item at all, but an offer. The box contained a coupon where I could get a Taste of Home subscription box for the cost of shipping, but I didn’t get a chance to redeem it because there was a limited amount–and I tried on the first day! This was a bit disappointing, but honestly I don’t need more stuff to clutter up the cabinets in my kitchen, so in the end it was probably for the best.
So How About the Rest of the Box?
I’m glad I got to try out the C’est Moi mask, as well as the Korres Cleanser. The Eva NYC hair color sprays were solid as well. Out of these three, my favorite was definitely the cleanser. It was a generous sample size, and I appreciated the fact that it didn’t have a strong scent! I don’t like overwhelming scents in my skincare products because I find they all clash with each other. It was also really gentle on the skin, which is definitely a huge plus if you have sensitive skin like me.
My Thoughts on Influenster
Although I’ve been a member of Influenster for at least two years now, this was my first VoxBox, aside from winning one of their Instagram Halloween contests last year. But full disclosure: After going through my old emails, I found I was actually offered a VoxBox back when I first joined the site. For some reason I didn’t accept the offer (Maybe I missed the email at the time?) and that seemed to put me “off their radar” for a long time. But luckily, after winning the contest, things seem to have picked up again.
I was so excited to finally get my hands on a coveted VoxBox, and I went above and beyond to complete all the tasks so I could get the full experience. Some people acted like the tasks Influenster asks you to complete are annoying, but I actually enjoyed the campaign a lot! I never invested much time in the site, aside from leaving a few reviews here and there, so I’d say my efforts have paid off so far.
Thanks a lot for taking the time to learn more about my #BossBabeVoxBox experience! If you got this far, you’re probably wondering how you can score a VoxBox of your own. If you’d like to sign up for a chance at getting your share at free goodies, feel free to use my Referral Link!
