Influenster: Holiday VoxBox 2012

Happy Weekend!!!

Continuing my goal of posting one haul post a week, I thought I should go ahead and share with you guys what was inside my Holiday VoxBox 2012 from Influenster. :)

I was so excited when I found out that I was picked to receive one of their Holiday VoxBoxes!
It's so exciting to know you're receiving items to try out, but not know what they are exactly, haha! ;)

Influenster Holiday VoxBox 2012

A little information about the VoxBox:

Tis the season, and we're celebrating with our Holiday 2012 VoxBox.
Inside this box, you'll find some great products to cozy up with this Holiday Season.

What was inside the box?

1. Sole Society -

Influenster is giving all of us shoe lovers a chance to get $25 off our first pair of shoes from

They have shoes starting at $49.95 -- with $25 off, you're looking at spending just $24.95... not bad, right?!
Use the code INFLUENSTER25. Code valid until January 31st.

Besides this awesome Sole Society coupon, here are the other items in my VoxBox:

2. Quaker Real Medley Oatmeal + -

I love eating oatmeal!
However, I am not much of a fan of flavored oatmeal, but this Peach Almond flavor is actually good. It had real, actual almonds -- I loved it! :)

Also available in Apple Walnut, Cherry Pistachio, and Summer Berry.

3. NYC New York Liquid Color Lipshine -

I love lip products and I can't say no to a new lip gloss, haha! ;)

This is a good kind of lip gloss -- not the best, but not bad either.
At $2.49, I don't think we can go wrong with this.

I got it in Nude York City -- it's a basic nude color.
Other shades available are City's Clear, Brighton Beach Peach, Prospect Pink, Fashion Avenue Fuchsia, Rivington Rose, Midtown Mulberry, Honey On The Hudson, Wine N Dine, and Big Apple Spice.

4. Kiss Nail Dress -

I've always wanted to try stick on nail products!
I got some from ASOS before, but they didn't work out too well.

This one worked really well, though. 
And it's definitely long-lasting -- it lasts longer than regular nail polish.

Here is a peek at how it looked on:

The directions were pretty straight forward and are easy to follow.
The shape and size are kind of awkward for the middle nail, but it's okay.

I guess it just really comes down to practice makes perfect.
It's not a flawless product, but it's the best I've tried so far. :)

Check out the other designs here.

5. EBOOST Energy Drink -

I'm not really a fan of energy drinks or flavored water, but my brother liked this one.
He said it did make him feel energized and the flavor tasted okay.

I got it in Natural Acai Pomegranate.
Other flavors: Orange and Pink Lemonade.

6. Goody Quikstyle Brush -

This has got to be the coolest item from the box!
The absorbent microfiber bristles absorb an average of 30% water for faster styling = so amazing!!!

7. Montagne Jeunesse Masque -

Face Mask + Chocolate = Perfect!
Who can say no to a facial mask that smells like chocolate??? ;)

This was my very first VoxBox and I am definitely very happy with it!
I liked some of the items more than the others, but it's still very exciting to get a chance to try out products I wouldn't normally buy otherwise.

If you guys want a more in-depth review on any of these products, please feel free to let me know in the comments below. :)

  1. The hair brush sounds really amazing. Have you tried it already? I have microfibre towel at home but I don't quite like the feel of it. Hence, I'm wondering how it would be like on the hair brush. After absorbing so much water, do you need to air the brush to get rid of the water?

    1. mine doesn't get super wet, but i just leave it out to dry to be sure. :)

  2. Receiving Voxboxes are so much fun. I really need to pick up one of those brushes I hate when my hair is wet in the mornings.


    1. it's really very fun! and i think you'll love that brush. :D

  3. thanks for showing us the inside of your influenster box! the nail stickers are so cute on you! i love them!!

  6. Grat ant of products. I love sole society but you have to act quickly because sizes do sell out fast.

  7. Hurrah for makeup and shoes! LOVE the Sole Society coupon {I may need to use that code}; and how fabulous does that Lipshine look? I want! :)

  8. I looooove plain old oatmeal. I can eat that everyday. Although, I'm not a fan of flavored oatmeal either with the exception of apple & cinnamon. Also, your nails looks ah-mazing!!!

  9. OOOOOOOOOOOOooo I love haul posts! :D That oatmeal looks delish! I have been trying to make oatmeal taste interesting again after having it for a month straight I kinda got tired of eating it :P I think this would make me want to try it again :D and yes who can say no to more lipgloss? :P Are you gonna do any reviews on the products?
