Influenster’s Jolly VoxBox Review

The Jolly VoxBox is holiday cheer in a box thanks to Influenster. I was  lucky enough to receive the jolly box and am excited to share with you what was inside in addition to my thoughts on the products!

Influenster Jolly VoxBox

Puffs Ultra Soft & Strong To Go Tissue Pack 

You never know when you will need a tissue. That's where Puffs' to-go tissue pack comes in. This cute package filled with super soft and strong tissues is a great on-the-go companion when you need it. Pick up a single pack to throw in your purse, car, or elsewhere, for $0.49.

NYC New York Color HD Color Trio Eyeshadow in Long Beach Sands:

NYC Eyeshadow

This is a great choice for eyeshadow if you're looking for one on a budget! Each shade complements the other nicely and makes for a nice combination on your eyelids.

Find it on drugstore.com for $2.70.

Rimmel London NEW Show Off Lip Lacquer in Luna:

Rimmel Show Off Lip Lacquer

Rimmel describes this product as "neither a lipstick nor a gloss... It's BIGGER than both!" I'm not really sure what that is supposed to mean, but basically, this product has the color of lipstick with the smooth shine of lip gloss. While the lip stick/gloss went on smoothly and wasn't sticky, the color I received (Luna) was not pretty. It was a shade of orange and did not look good on me. However, the lip lacquer felt smooth on my lips. I can't tell you how long it lasted because I wiped it right off (orange is just not my color!).

Find it for $5.49 - 5.99 at drugstores.

Skinny Cow Candy:

Skinny Cow Chocolates

I can never get enough of good chocolate so receiving a box of Skinny Cow Divine Filled Chocolates in Peanut Butter Creme from Influenster was the best surprise. I had low expectations for this chocolate but I was happily surprised with how delicious the Skinny Cow chocolates actually are!

They're not too sweet and the peanut butter filling is deliciously creamy and a great complement to the chocolate. Want to know what's even better? Each pouch is only 130 calories!

If you are looking for low-calorie, delicious chocolate, I suggest you grab a box (or a few!) of Skinny Cow Candies! A box of the Skinny Cow Divine Filled Chocolates include six pouches and each pouch includes 3 chocolates. You can find them for $3.99/box or $1.99/single bar or pouch.

Ducklings Mini Rolls:

I'm already obsessed with these Mini Ducklings rolls of duct tape. The one I received was blue and patterned with white hibiscus flowers. These Ducklings are too cute and are a great product to use when taping or decorating. You can get a Mini Duckling for yourself for $2-$3.

Beauty Review: Kiss Nail Dress

If you're looking to dress up your nails in fun prints and patterns, try Kiss Nail Dress nail strips.

Earlier this month, I received a package of leopard-print and rhinestone-sprinkled nail strips complimentary from Influenster in my Varsity VoxBox. Not totally fond of the design, I decided to give them a test-run anyway to see how they really looked on my nails and how they kept up after a week or two.

Read on for my review...

Kiss Nail Dress Strips

In stores and online, you can find Kiss Nail Dress for $6.99. The package includes 28 strips in 14 different sizes, a nail file, and a little booklet to inspire your nail look.

The great thing about these nails strips is how versatile they are. You can choose to use the full look of the nail strips (like I did), or you can use them as accents. Use only one on each hand to have an accent nail (paint your nails your favorite color, then put on a nail strip on your ring finger on each hand) or you can cut the nail strips into fun shapes and accent each of your nails for a fun look.

What I also loved about these nails strips were how easy they were to put on. There are really only two steps:

  1. Stick 'em on! These nail strips are basically stickers for your nails. You simply peel off a nail strip that best fits your nail and stick them on and smooth them out. This can be a little bit tricky because if you're not careful, you can easily get air pockets between your nails and the strips.
  2. File away. Then, to get the nail strips to perfectly fit your nail bed, you fold over the excess part of the strips. Take the file that was included in the package and file away until the excess tears off.

Kiss Nail Dress Strips

At first, I though the rhinestone/leopard print was a little too much to have on each of my fingers, but after having them on for a week, I kind of love them. Plus, they'll go well with a Halloween outfit!

My Bottom Line: I like these nail strips! I have yet to try other brands, but Kiss Nail Dress is proving to be well worth $6.99. I've had these nails strips on for about a week and they are nicely staying put. I've had no tears and no problems with the strips falling off. I'll give an update in a few days to let you know how easy (or difficult) these nail strips are to take off, so check back soon!

Have you tried nail strips, from Kiss or another brand? Let me know what you thought about them in the comments!
