For those who don’t know, Influenster is a website where you can earn points for sharing your unique opinion on products and experiences. Basically you turn your social influence into sweet rewards such as the exclusive access to deals, promotions and free boxes filled with goodies. There are many different topics to talk about to fit everyone’s personal interests, but the topics I usually focus on are beauty and fashion related. By writing reviews on beauty products, taking surveys and being constantly active, I’ve earned enough points to qualify for the current box.
This is the fourth vox box that I've received. When I qualified for my first vox box, however, I was quite surprised. I had been signed up on Influenster and had been actively participating on the site for over a year and had almost given up on trying to qualify for a box. From what I’d heard from other people it had taken some only a month to earn a vox box while it had taken others much longer. This is the only part I have not liked so far about Influenster because they don’t clarify how many points you need to earn to get a vox box. So if you’re like me and have been waiting a while to earn a box, don’t give up because it’s worth the wait in the end. And if you are not signed up on the site, what are you waiting for?

Each box has a theme. In this vox box I received five products all tailored towards things college girls use daily. And the best part is they are all full sized. Finally, a company that sends full size products instead of just samples! All together the products retail for around $25.
RedRose Real Tea Water Enhancer- $4.49
This was the item that I was most excited about. Lately, I've been trying to eat healthier and a big goal of mine has been to drink more water. This has been TOUGH for me because I hate the taste of water. I'm hoping that this Real Tea will help me to drink more water though because it flavor enhances the water. I taste tested it and I think it tastes delicious. It makes my water taste like sweet tea. Plus, It's fairly healthy as it only contains 5 calories. I'd definitely recommend trying this out if your not a fan of water.
Broadway nails press on manicure- $5.99
I'd never tried out fake nails before because I'm not into long nails. I'm use to having short stubby nails with no white showing, which I learned today is called the lunula. Hows that for a fact of the day?! This is the third time I've received these in a vox box though, so I decided to give them a try. These fake nails are stick ons. First off I was very impressed with the packaging. All the nails came in a nail polish shaped bottle, which is cute and functional. It's a great place to store excess nails so that they don't get lost. While applying, I had a difficult time peeling the flaps off of the nails. Besides that they were very easy to stick on and matched up with each nail. Once on, they looked real and it looked like I had just gotten a fresh new manicure. They were even an ideal length as they were the average length of a nail. Then the excitement and admiration of my beautiful nails soon vanished. I could not pick anything up with these nails. If I tried to pick up a book or put a jacket on, the nails would fall off. By the end of the first day, half the nails had fallen off. Then the next day, the other half fell off in the shower. Overall, I was not impressed with the press on nails and felt like they were a dud.
Rimmel Stay Matte Foundation- $4.99- $5.49
I was thoroughly surprised by how much I liked this foundation. I'm usually cautious of drugstore foundations as the color selection isn't big and it's hard to find the right color. This foundation is in the color 100 Ivory and is the perfect shade for my skin. This foundation claims to be matte and is suppose to not look shiny when applied to the face. This is exactly what it does. It applied so smoothly to my face and kept my skin looking healthy. It also stayed on all day long and didn't bunch or move. It felt like and looked like my own skin. It's now my new foundation love and when I run out, I'm definitely going to purchase it.
I love school supplies and can never have too many pens. This pen is a smooth writing pen and it glides so nicely across paper. I can't wait to take it to class and use it to write notes.
NYC Expert Last Lipstick in Forever Fuchsia- $1.99
This color is very bold and is not a color I'd usually buy as it's out of my comfort zone. I tried it out though and got so many compliments throughout the day. It also lasted the whole day (around 8 hours) and didn't dry out my lips like some lipsticks do. I don't think I'd wear this everyday because it's so bright, but it will be a fun color to experiment with this summer.
Playtex Sport Fresh Balance- $4.99
I was caught off guard a little when I saw this in the vox box. This will come in handy sooner or later though, so I can't complain.
