Fabulous Friday

Have you ever heard of Influenster?  Are you a member?  Have you received a voxbox?  I just recently received my first voxbox.  What’s a voxbox you ask?  See for yourself.

My first VoxBox

Let me explain how Influenster works.  Just go to their website and sign up.  You complete a profile and unlock “badges” by taking quizzes.  These badges tell Influenster what things you like-such as the Foodie badge and Trendsetter badge.  After that, Influenster will send you a  voxbox.  This is a box full of free samples of different products for you to try out.  The catch is that you have to complete a survey about the items and also review the items on different forms of social media.  I like free stuff, so I decided to give this a try.

I received an email that I was being sent a voxbox maybe a month after I signed up.  I accepted the voxbox and then received an email a few days later of when it would be shipped out.   Here’s what I got and my opinions of each product:

Ghiradelli Gourmet Milk Chocolate Bar: Score!  Chocolate is fabulous and free chocolate is even better!  Ghiradelli makes my favorite white chocolate-I like it even more than Godiva!  Since I’m a white chocolate person, I gave this bar to my husband to try out.  He also loves Ghiradelli and said this was a very sweet chocolate bar without being too sweet.  Two thumbs up on this one!

Truvia Natural Sweetener: I’ve wanted to try this but haven’t because who wants to pay for something you’re not sure you’ll like?  I was so pleased to find this in my box so I could try it for free.  This sweetener has zero calories (YAY!) and is all natural.  This sweetener is not sugar and doesn’t taste like sugar.  It sweetens your coffee, tea, etc. with just a very subtle sweetener taste.  A little goes a long way!  There wasn’t a bad aftertaste like other sweeteners.  This is the closest sweetener I’ve found to sugar.  If you don’t mind a little bit of a sweetener taste and you only use a small amount of sweetener, I would highly recommend this.

Gillette Venus and Olay Razor: This razor has two Olay moisture bars-one on the top and one on the bottom of the razor.  They release a light lather that acts like shaving cream.  I like it but its hard to get used to.  The moisture bars are a good idea but VERY thick.  It makes me feel like I need to press harder because of the two giant bars-which I don’t like.  It was nice to be able to try this for free, though!

Stash Tea Bags: This was a sampler of different types of herbal caffeine free tea bags.  I love hot tea so this was right up my alley. I tried the Licorice and Spice because I really like licorice but it tasted like medicine.  I had to pour it out.  The Cinnamon Apple is pretty good-almost like hot apple cider.  There are quite a few different flavors including acai berry and blueberry.

Kiss Nail Dress: These are awesome nail “stickers.”  They have a leopard pattern to them  I call them stickers because you peel them off just like stickers and then stick them on your nail.  Once you have it in place, you just file off any excess.  It’s supposed to last for ten days and comes with a set for fingers and toes!

So, what do you think?  Would you sign up?  I got a LOT of free samples and they were good things that I wanted to try.  I’ve discovered that there are actually a lot of sites like this so I’m going to research them and report back to you.  Don’t forget to be MARVELOUS this weekend-even if you don’t leave the house!
