Frosty VoxBox Review

voxboxw.jpg

Hey guys! I hope everyone had an enjoyable holiday break. I really enjoyed my time with my family, even though Micah and I had colds that we are both still recovering from. 

But as promised, I'm here to unbox my Influenster #FrostVoxBox for ya! All products listed were received complimentary to test and/or review from Influencer. If you would like to flex your social media muscle, sign up here

Here is a view of the contents inside this VoxBox

First up for review are the makeup products I received. Now, let me be the first to say I AM NO MAKEUP ARTIST! However, I do think that's the point of it all. Normal people doing normal reviews. 

1st up - Rimmel Scandaleyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal Eyeliner 

Here is what they have to say about it.

Get long lasting shocking color intensity with Rimmel London’s Scandaleyes Kohl Kajal Eyeliners. Their high intensity pigments give you an instant color impact and the ultra smooth & creamy formula glides on easily. They are waterproof, smudge-proof, sweat-proof, heat-proof, humidity-proof and scandal- proof!

Now, after reviewing it I can say I agree with them up until they say smudge-proof. That was one of the first things I tried, even before I read that it was supposed to be smudge-proof. If you're anything like me, you don't wear makeup every day. So sometimes I rub my eyes and come up with black fingers and confused looks from on-lookers. Only to realize I've been walking around with crazy eyed'd makeup. *Face palm!* But other than that I would recommend buying this. It's also available in 10 different shades! I can't wait to try the brighter colors. You can pick one up from Walgreens for only $4.29

 

2nd - Rimmel Gentle Eye Makeup Remover

Here is what they have to say about it:

At the end of the day, Just Let It Go with Rimmel London’s Gentle Eye Makeup Remover. This Eye Makeup Remover gently removes all eye make up, including long lasting & waterproof make up, with no oily residue. Gently remove all of your eye makeup and start fresh again in the morning!

What I say...(-______-)...save your money. I figured they gave this as a pairing with the eyeliner, so I was excited to try it out. But as you can see in this video, there wasn't much of a gentle removing of anything.  So I had to use my own makeup remover. You can get this from Target for $3.99

3rd - NYC New York Color Expert Last Lip Color

What they say: 

Ready to take your lips to the next level? Try our NEW Expert Last Lip Color in twenty tantalizing shades. Get intense amplified color and shine that lasts up to 6 hours! Our moisturizing formula glides of easily for a silky, smooth, velvety finish for all day wear.

What I say : For a non-lipstick chick like myself, I actually like this. I felt like I didn't have to have a full face of makeup to pull it off, and when I couldn't find my chapstick this stuff really did the trick. I don't know about the amplified color, but the shine was there and it did last for a while. I liked how smooth it was to apply and how nice it matched with my skin tone. You can get this from Target for $1.97

4th Review - Boots No7 Protect & Perfect Intense ADVANCED Serum

What they say: 

Supercharge your skincare regime with this clinically proven serum*. No7’s highly acclaimed Protect & Perfect Intense technology has been re-engineered to deliver even better anti-aging results. Independently tested and proven to work.

What I say: I have to be honest. I actually haven't tried this. I don't have fine lines yet so I figured it would be pointless to just try it. So if anyone would like for me to send this to them to try out for me, just let me know and I'll send it over. You just have to review it for me and let me know what you think. :)

5th review - EcoTools Full Volume Styler Hair Brush

What they say :

Ideal for styling longer locks, the rounded brush design creates gorgeous volume and style.

What I say: Ok so after I used this I had a few things I wanted to be sure to mention. The first being I actually like this brand; I'm all about recycling. I have a few of their makeup brushes and they do their job well for the price. So needless to say I was excited to see that they had hair care products. I loved how lightweight it was, and how big it was.

I have really thick curly hair and these types of brushes tend to get stuck in my hair. This brush not only didn't get stuck but it cut my drying time in half, which is my biggest praise. However, one thing I found a bit annoying was the size of the handle. Don't get me wrong, I love the grip, but I feel if it was a bit longer I wouldn't have kept burning my hands while drying. But overall I'd recommend it. You can also get this from Target for just $9.99

6th - Fruit Vines® Bites

What they say:

Fruit Vines® Bites are a new, soft, chewy fruit candy, from the Red Vines® family, available in two fruit flavors – strawberry and cherry. Low fat and made with no preservatives, Fruit Vines® Bites are available in three sizes: a 2oz single serve, a 5oz hanging bag and a 10oz re-sealable stand-up bag.

What I say.......I ate the entire bag in just two days. And it only took me two days because I didn't want my husband to judge me :D It's only $2.69 at Target, Walgreen also sales it but it's $2.99 there.

7th review - McCormick Gourmet Thyme

What they say: 

McCormick Gourmet’s Thyme imparts a light minty flavor that is distinctively warm and aromatic. Our All Natural Thyme can be used throughout the day in dishes such as breakfast casseroles, hearty soups, stews, stuffing and oven-roasted chicken.

What I say: I actually used this on my Italian Baked Chicken and it was a pleasant surprise. I liked the little hint of mint it gave the chicken. Sounds weird I know.... But lets face it... We all now I'm a little weird ;) It retails for $4.98 just about anywhere you can buy spices.

8th review - Celestial Seasonings Candy Cane Lane® Decaf Green Tea

What they say: 

Our Candy Cane Lane® Decaf Green Tea is made with the very finest green tea leaves, peppermint and other botanicals, because at Celestial Seasonings, we know you are what you steep.

What I say: This is actually my favorite flavor from them. So I definitely say go buy this. You can get if from WalMart for about $3 a box. Now this is a guess because the actual site is only showing a case for $29.40. But I've gotten the smaller pack for much cheaper. 

And there we have it folks! Influencer's #FrostyVoxBox I'm happy to have been able to review some of these items. If not for the Frosty VoxBox I don't think I would have ever tried out some of these really awesome products. I hope you found this post to be helpful. Again, if you would like to receive products for testing and reviewing head over to Influenster

 and tell them Yvonne sent ya! Until next time guys!
