Influenster UniVoxBox Quick Review on Products Inside

I was able to try a variety of products complimentary from Influenster in exchange for a review on them. Above is a picture of all the products that came in the voxbox and below is just some information on a card about each of them.

I wrote individual blog reviews on each product and will share the links for those interested in the longer review of each product. Just click on the names of the product to be directed to the reviews.

Broadway Nails imPRESS Press-On Manicure: Cute nails that are easy to apply and fairly easy to take off. Good for those that want a salon look but not for the salon price.

Expert Last Lip Color in Forever Fuchsia: Pretty color of lipstick. Lipstick stayed on good and didn't come off like other lipsticks tend to do. It's decently priced as well for the quality of the product.

Pilot Acrobrall PureWhite Pen: Great pen that writes smooth and does not smear. It's comfortable to hold and for a pack of 3, is a great price.

Rimmel London Stay Matte Liquid Mousse Foundation: Great price for a foundation that works well and still has that nature look to it. I felt it also smelled good and didn't look cakey at all.

Playtex Sport Fresh Balance Tampons: Comfortable to wear and offers great protection for those who are very active or maybe just looking for better protection. They are priced really good and are tampons that I would definitely suggest.

Red Rose REAL TEA Premium Water Enhancer: Tastes really great. Loved that you can add it to cold or hot water and add however much you want. It tasted sweet to me and there was no need to add sugar to it.

Overall I had a great experience with the products in my voxbox and I do agree these would be great for a young woman in college or even just a busy woman period that wants to look and feel good about herself. Thanks Influenster!!

Herbal Essences Body Wash Crowdtap Share

I am a member of Crowdtap and I received a 1.2 oz body of Herbal Essences Body Wash in Hello Hydration. It is a travel sized body but I was able to get about 5 uses out of it and 1 of those uses was by my mom. I instantly loved the smell of the body wash and expected for it to smell great because I have tried the shampoos and conditioners in the past and thought they smelled great. It makes me want to check out the other body washes scents.

For me and for my mom, we both agreed it did make our skin feel soft. Using it, I did not feel as if it was stripping my skin like some body washes seem to do and actually cleaning it good. It lathered up pretty good if you asked me and did not take a lot to do so either. I still actually had some leftover on my bath pouf after washing my entire body. The scent was just as awesome on my body as it was out of the bottle but it did not last too long but I have tired many body washes and they usually do not last all day. I do wish the scent would last as long as the shampoos and conditioners seem to do.

Overall I felt it was a great body wash and I can't wait to try out the other scents and see if there's another scent I would prefer over this coconut scented one. I do recommend this to others especially those who are already a fan of Herbal Essences products.

Thanks for reading. Check out the pictures below that I took while sampling the body wash.

 Showing off my sample of Hello Hydration

Smelling how great Herbal Essences Hello Hydration smells. The coconut scent is not overbearing at all.
Not sure if you can see it clearly but I have some body wash of the pouf.

Lathering up my arm.

Another view trying to show how it lathered up on my arm.

Third picture of the body wash on my arm. It is hard to tell but it really did lather up good and did a great job cleaning my body while making it smell great and my skin smooth.

I definitely felt relaxed afterwards and plan to purchase a full size bottle very soon. I love these travel size bottles though for those short trips that you do not want full size bottles due to limited packing space.

Playtex Sport Tampons Review

I received these complimentary from Influenster in my univoxbox to try out and review. I was already familiar with the Playtex brand so I had high expectations and they exceeded what I was expecting. They are comfortable to wear almost to the point you forget you are wearing a tampon. They make me feel confident because they protect very good from leaks and well I have wore some tampons that claim to protect but were not all that good especially if you are planning on doing any sort of physical activity. I highly recommend these as they work great and are decently priced.

Broadway Nails imPRESS Press-On Manicure Review

I have tried these twice and both were complementary from Influenster that came in voxboxes. I received these for free in exchange for a review on them in my univoxbox and well I feel had a good experience with them. They do last about a week if you are careful with them as they say. They are really easy to put on and fairly easy to take off although unlike the first ones I tried, the 2nd time the sticky stuff on the nail wanted to stick to my nail some but did come off easy. I love that they come in a variety of colors and patterns as well and the variety of options that are suppose to be able to fit your nails. For the most part I had no trouble finding ones to fit my nails but on some of my nails they were not an exact match. The only cons I really see with these are the sticky stuff collecting stuff like dirt and also I noticed my hair wold snag on them which made showering a little difficult. Also unlike the last time I tried these, this time I noticed slight discomfort which I am not sure but I noticed it even more if I was trying to open something and the nails would "tug" a little.

Overall I would still recommend them as they are cute and easy to apply and take off. They are great if you don't have time to get your nails done.

Below are my nails that I laid out before applying them. I did as the directions stated and applied the thumbs last which I strongly suggest doing. The first hand is easy but the 2nd a little more difficult. The thumbs aren't hard but I could see if the thumbs aren't saved for last, it being more difficult to apply the nails.

Below is the finished look and the leftovers in the bottle.

Hope you enjoyed reading. As stated, I received these complimentary from Influenster in exchange for a review. All opinions are my own and I am not paid by any company/brand. Thanks!!

Pilot Acroball Pen Review

I received the Pilot Acroball Pen complementary from Influenster to try and review in my UniVoxBox. It is a really good pen that writes really smooth and does not smear. It is very comfortable to hold. You can buy a pack of 5 on Amazon for $10.49 and shipping is free if the order is over $35. The pens do have different colored grips but write in black ink. Not only is the pen comfortable to hold due to the grip but also because it is pretty light and not a heavy pen. It is one I would recommend to anyone especially students who take a lot of notes.

Below is thank you note I wrote to Influenster and you can see just how well the pen writes, just excuse my handwriting as I really don't think it's that neat,lol.

You can even have the pen match your outfits if you choose as you can see below in my picture.

Overall a fantastic pen for a great price if you ask me.

Go ahead and check out Pilot on Facebook and Twitter if you want to keep updated on products and deals. Also if you want even further information you can view their website HERE.

Rimmel London Stay Matte Liquid Mousse Foundation Review

I am a member of influenster and in my UniVoxBox, one of the complimentary products I was able to try was the Rimmel London Stay Matte Liquid Mousse Foundation. Below is a picture of what it looks like and as you can somewhat see, I tried it in 200 Soft Beige. 

Below is a before and after picture of using the foundation. I took it with an iPhone 4 so it's not the best of quality and I can say I could see more of a difference than what the pictures are showing. I noticed it did change a little but I did not see a huge difference which wasn't too much a problem as I feel it makes the makeup still look nature and like you are not even wearing foundation. I really loved the way it felt and even the way it smelled. It was also easy to take off as well. It is something I would highly recommend to others. 

Above are just some more pictures I took to show how I made the the #
StayMatteSwitch. The one on the right is how I went out for the night to the club. I felt it was a great look and well I also used another product that was in the UniVoxBox which was the NYC New York Color Expert Last Lipstick. You can read about the product by browsing my blog and looking for the post or just clicking HERE.

I hope you enjoyed this review and as I stated above, I received this product complimentary from Influenster. I am not paid to review products from Influenster or the brands of these products. These are my opinions alone. Thanks!!

NYC New York Color Expert Last Lipstick Review

In my most recent voxbox from Influenster, the UniVoxbox, I received NYC New York Color Expert Last Lipstick in it. The shade I received was "Forever Fuchsia." When I first opened it, I thought it would be extremely pink when I put it on, but when I put it on, it was not as pink as it appeared. It still was pretty pink but I felt it was pretty and looked good on me. It's probably not a shade I would wear too often but I've never been big on lipstick anyways. I will say I do love how well this stayed on and did not come off. I usually noticed with some lipsticks, it comes off easily especially when you are drinking something. Overall I feel it's a good product and if you don't mind the color, one you should buy. I will definitely look into buying other shades that are more likely for me to wear.

I will also like to include that in the picture of me, not only am I wearing the NYC lipstick but also Rimmel London Stay Matte Liquid Mousse Foundation which I also received from Influenster. Read my review of the foundation HERE.

Real Tea Review

I received a voxbox (UniVoxbox) from Influenster and in it was Red Rose Real Tea Water Enhancer. The picture shared is the glass of water with it added to it and I chose to make iced tea instead of hot. It tastes really good and there is no need to add extra sugar as it's already sweet enough for me. It's very refreshing and I love that it's easy to carry around so you could add it to your water throughout the day which for college students, this is great for when you have classes all day or near finals when you don't have much time to get a drink and water is all you may be able to get. It would even be good for those who work who may want something added to their water since most places I know, water is always available and if you're like me, sometimes you just want some flavor.

I would definitely recommend this. I shared it with a few family members and friends and they all said it was good and would consider buying it for themselves. My parents are big on tea and enjoyed it and usually they prefer Milos or Lipton so a brand that isn't one of them, says something if you ask me.

Check out the vine I made of using it in action:

Payment Proofs for the Month of March

So I'm making this post to show you payment proofs for sites I cashed out on for the month of March.

Below is the payment proof for Bing Rewards. I always cash out for Tango gift card and on Tango turn them in for Amazon gift cards. The reason I cash out for Tango instead of Amazon is because they are like 5 points cheaper. If you're interested in joining please CLICK HERE and you can earn just for searching daily.

Below is my cashout on ChatAbout. You can also cash out via Paypal instead of Amazon or pick one of their rewards. Earn points by answering questions, commenting on news discussions or under their topics sections. You can also earn by doing offers and writing reviews or articles under their topics. There is a max amount to earn by commenting/answering, but you can earn as much as you want in their bonus area or by writing reviews or articles. CLICK HERE to join.

Below are my Crowdtap winnings as well as my top 100. Crowdtap isn't a guarantee that you will win a gift card or more and the amount varies. So far as of 4/3/2014, 2 of mine were $5 Amazon gift cards. I've yet to receive the 3rd but I assume it's probably $5 as well. Answer quick hits(polls), participate in discussion and do challenges (photo and text) for brands. You can also apply for sample shares or hosted parties if you fit the demographics the brands are looking for. Right now I'm waiting to hear back from 2 brands to see if I will sample products through them. CLICK HERE to join.

Below is my Perk cashout. They have a browser you can download on your laptop/desktop but also have apps as well. I earn best using the Perk TV app, which is just watching app or movie trailers. You can earn by searching on the browser and there are also offer walls as well. CLICK HERE to join and give it a try. I would probably have earned more for March but I just started getting used to using the app.

Below is my Viggle cashouts for 2 $10 iTunes cards as well as various cashouts via Paypal. As you can see I cashout on Scantopia, Peko(DeNA), Postloop (Royal Media), WinAt9, and Qmee. Just click the names to check them out. For Scantopia, I'd love if you would use my invite code: JV-BGU-Q8 Also for Viggle,if you don't mind leave an email address and I can get credit that way. As of right now they do not have a referral link I can give to readers. Signing up on Viggle through me will get you 1,000 bonus points.

Below is my payment proof from YourWord. They have other gift card options besides Amazon to choose from and $5 is the lowest amount you can cash out. They are a survey site and even if you don't qualify, you will still get money for at least trying. I've noticed I usually get 25 cents even if I don't qualify. Right now they do not have a referral system but will have one in the future. If interested CLICK HERE to join.

Thanks for checking this out. I will try to post payment proofs more often since I know this is the first time. Also don't forget to check out the tab on other sites to earn on which also includes apps. I also have a list of traffic exchange sites to use if you're interested in joining one.
