Influenster VoxBox Review: Loreal EverPure

As you all know, I love doing product reviews. Learning about new products. Testing them. Telling the world about them.

And each time I blog about a box of goodies that I receive, it’s my favorite box.

I know… They can’t all be my favorite. But this one really might be!

Loreal & Influenster teamed up to send me the new EverPure line, a brand new sulfate-free, wax-free, vegan line of salon quality haircare products!

And I am in love.

With just one use, my hair felt stronger, looked healthier, and was shinier than it have been in years! Need proof?? (See below).

No frizz for law prom! Shiny, sleek, healthy hair with natural products… Love it!

Thanks, Influenster, for sending me these incredible products for free to test 🙂

XO VoxBox

Guys… It’s been forever since I’ve written a real blog post. I don’t even know if I remember how to! Okay… that’s a little bit of an exaggeration. But it has been a while.

So let’s start back with a bang!

As you guys know, I love Influenster. I’ve been a product tester and reviewer for them for about a year and a half and have been lucky enough to receive several VoxBoxes. First, it was the The Jolly VoxBox and the Rimmel Moisture Renew VoxBox. Then, the Go VoxBox. And now the XO VoxBox! And can I just say that they up their game with each new campaign?

XO VoxBox

Here’s what I got to test in my XO VoxBox:

  • Tide Pods with Febreze – First of all, these are the best smelling detergent pods in the world. Also, they feel really cool. Will wanted to pop one… Obviously not a good idea, but if anything, that’s the hubby’s seal of approval. I am now a firm believer in the Tide Pods with Febreeze and don’t know if I can go back to liquid detergent!! Big A+ for these guys 🙂
  • Colgate Optic White Toothbrush + Built-in Whitening Pen & Colgate Optic White Express White 3 oz. Toothpaste – What a great collection… Colgate has done it again with innovative new technology to make your teeth happy and sparkly! The whitening toothbrush has given me visible results in just a week’s time! Love it!
  • John Frieda Frizz Ease Collection ShampooConditioner & Primer – These samples may lead to me buying the full-sized products of this line. I’m always struggling with the hair-frizz issue, and these products have been miraculous for my hair… especially with spring showers in full swing!
  • Skinfix Hand Repair Cream – Winter weather is luckily on its way out, but its damage of dry skin is here to stay… At least until Skinfix comes around 🙂 This smooth cream is a perfect repairer of the awful dry skin that winter brings.
  • Lands’ End & Adore Me discounts – These lovely sponsors also contributed to the XO VoxBox with special offers. I’m definitely going to be checking out their spring and summer clothing collections!

All of these products are perfect for getting your home and body refreshed for spring! What do you think? Any of these products look like something you need to add to your spring cleaning routine?

Influenster APP!

Influenster: The Bra Edition

Ya’ll… Do you know how pricey sports bras can be? Let’s just say they can be pricey enough that my cheap self won’t replace them for years. Literally, years.

My poor husband has heard me complain while running time and time and time again, and each time he says the logical male thing… “Buy a new one”. But it’s not that easy, men!! It’s not that easy. I once bought a sports bra, and every time I wear it I feel like I’m going to be sick (for the record, it might be too small). Then on the other hand I have a drawer full of sports bras that are SO comfortable but provide absolutely zero support. I feel like it’s a Catch-22; you either have painful but highly supportive (as in you can’t move) or comfortable with way too much wiggle room.

Obviously, these are both problems for the running woman.

But then along comes my Internet BFF, Influenster, and magically I’m made a believer in the most glorious of all sports bras in the whole world, the VSX Incredible. And my friends, it lives up to its name.

When I got the initial survey for Influenster for this VoxBox, I prayed (again, literally) that I would be chosen because, if I’m being honest, I was in no way ever going to even consider getting a Victoria’s Secret sports bra. Hah! Like I’m going to buy a $50 sports bra. I won’t even go and replace the $10 one. But if I got a free one… 🙂 

And then I was told I’d qualified and would get my bra soon, and I thought “YES! I totally tricked the system! I’m getting a really good sports bra for free and I’ll never even have to buy one myself!”

Ladies and gents (if you’re still reading the bra blog), VS Sport and Influenster are who did the tricking. Because let me tell you, I tried on the Incredible sports bra and immediately vowed to never take it off… Like ever. I’m already planning my trip to Victoria’s Secret to get one in every color available and I will NEVER go back to the cheap sports bra. Because really the only thing a cheap bra buys you is a miserable workout. With the VSX Incredible I am confident, comfortable, and totally able to focus on my workout (not how badly my chest aches)… That’s priceless, people. $50 now will also probably save me thousands in the long run when I don’t have intense pains from careless workouts of my youth… Jussayin’. 

I’m going through a serious #SportsBraBreakup and I’ll only be true to my VSX Incredible. It deserves my undivided attention and loyalty.

Oh, and did I leave out that they also threw some workout pants in there… for no cost? I’m talking an entire workout outfit (valued at about $120 all together), and I know now why they were able to send out such expensive merchandise to cheap-o’s like me. It’s because now that I’ve experienced the QUALITY of the GOOD stuff, I’ll never go back. Dangit… They got me good.

If you’re not excited after reading this, no worries. But if you ARE, send me your email address and I’ll send you a personal invite to the best online product testing site there is!!

Oh, and I got this cool VS Sport swag for free from Influenster, just in case you missed that 🙂 *VoxBox


VoxBox Round 3!

Influenster is at it again!

This time they sent me the most AMAZING box of wellness goodies. I was astounded by the amount of full-sized products I received and I am more than happy to sample and review them. Especially because they’re all good for me!

Here’s what my Go! VoxBox included:

  • ProFoot Triad Orthotic – If I’m being honest here… This was the most exciting part of the box for me. Haha! I love me some Dr. Scholls, and 99% of the time when I’m wearing flats or any other close-toed shoe I’m gellin’ like a felon. And yes, I did just say that. For those of you who don’t gel (weirdos) you would probably not appreciate this find the way I did, but man oh man it was a treat to get something that I use regularly as a gift! Also, I’m ready to be quoted on this… PROFOOT trumps Dr. Scholls by a billion!!!! I mean it too. In price the brands are comparable (about $10 for a set) but in comfort and scent (yep, they smell nice too), ProFoot takes the cake. These are my fancy comfort inserts 🙂
  • ProFoot Pedi-Rock – As if ProFoot hadn’t done enough for me… They also threw in a pedi-rock. Now I used a pumice stone once and scratched my foot up (not pleasant). But with the Pedi-Rock you’re exfoliating those feet with a SOFT rock. What?! Sounds like an oxymoron but it’s true. The pedi-rock can be used wet or dry but it isn’t nearly as invasive as a pumice stone because it’s soft and easily takes off the dead skin without scratching the good skin. I like it a lot. And just in time for these feetsies to be out by the pool!
  • Playtex Sport Fresh Balance – Let’s be real. And if you’re a man, just skip this one. We all use them and they signify an unpleasant time, but this brand of Sport Fresh tampons are the bomb. Again, not just saying it. They’re new and they’re affordable and they’re seriously better than any brand out there. Whew. Glad we got that review done haha.
  • Blue Diamond Fruit Flavored Almonds – I got blueberry. Hallelujah! As soon as I opened the package I could smell the berries. The taste was interesting but think blueberry granola bar without the oats. I’d love to try the strawberry or raspberry. It satisfies a sweet tooth while giving you good fuel!
  • Muller Greek Corner yogurts – Now this wasn’t included, but a coupon was. I’ve had this brand just recently and I LOVED the yogurt with the fruit corners. I like being able to mix things into my yogurt rather than having them pre-mixed (is that weird?), so this was the perfect brand for me!
  • Aqua Spa Relax Collection – I was very lucky to get the Aqua Spa Relax Bath Soak. That’s right, soak… not soap. Essentially, I was given a HUGE container of bath salts that I can’t wait to use. The smell is so soothing that I can only imagine how nice it’ll be in a tub after a long day. Lavender and chamomile. Mmmmm. Relaxed already.
  • And last but not least… The Vitamin Shoppe sent a Next Step Shaker and 3 Next Step shakes – Fresh Berries, Swiss Chocolate, and French Vanilla. Which is my favorite? Hmm… Tough choice. But I’ll go with the chocolate shake. Because I love chocolate the best anyway. But all of that to say that they are all TASTY! And I normally don’t think that about fiber and protein shakes. These samples got me wanting to try the Next Step program. Maybe I’ll have to find a Vitamin Shoppe nearby and test it out 🙂


So once again, ladies and gents, my obsession with free stuff is fueled. And I’m so appreciative to Influenster for letting me test and review these items for free!

 In summary, head to Walmart and buy it all 🙂
