Campus VoxBox Unboxing

Hi there!

It seems like forever since I've posted something about the Influenster VoxBox program.  If you've been following me for awhile, you'll know that I've received a few of these VoxBoxes in the past; here's a few links in case you want to check out some of my older posts:
I'm not exactly sure when this box arrived, but I'm guessing it was sometime earlier this week.  Since I haven't tried any of the products yet, this is more of a show-and-tell type deal; I'll use the products over the next few weeks and post another blog with mini reviews on everything :)

For now, let's start unboxing!

DISCLAIMER: I received these products complimentary for testing purposes from Influenster.com.  This is not a sponsored post, and all opinions are my own.

The Box

I was so excited to see this box in the mail today!  I think it's the largest VoxBox I've ever received from Influenster. Everything in this box is full sized, except the L'Oreal hair system.

JERGENS Natural Glow Instant Sun Sunless Tanning Mousse ($12.99)

"JERGENS Natural Instant Sun Sunless Tanning Mousse uniquely works with your skin tone to mimic results from the natural sun.  This airy, moisturizing mousse allows for a precise, even application that dries in just 60 seconds, taking you on vacations in an instant.  Welcome to the #goldenlife."

I've got to be honest- I'm slightly terrified of testing out this product.  I haven't used a sunless tanner before, and I'm worried it'll look a little too dark on my skin since it's in the shade "Deep Bronze."  I'll probably end up using this on my legs just so it doesn't look too obnoxious/ fake on my pale skin.

St. Ives Blemish Control Apricot Scrub ($3.99 - $4.79)

"St. Ives Blemish Control Apricot Scrub contains 100% natural exfoliants to deeply clean pores and brighten dull skin.  The scrub helps stop breakouts before they occur, containing salicylic acid, which is known to help prevent blemishes from forming."

I've used some sort of scrub from St. Ives before, and I remember really liking it.  Their products usually smell awesome and work really well (I have acne-prone combination skin, so I use a scrub once a week or so just to keep my skin clear).

L'OREAL PARIS Advanced Straight System (Shampoo/ Conditioner: $4.99 each, Treatments: $6.99)

"Our first system with Kera-Tourmaline for up to 48 hours of long-lasting straight (based on using complete system with heat styling tools)."

This shampoo, pre-conditioner, and conditioner is supposed to be pretty fantastic.  I haven't used this particular product, but I have tried a few different versions of the L'Oreal Advanced Haircare line.  I usually don't buy shampoo/ conditioner from the drugstore only because I have color treated hair.  I'll probably end up using these samples just to see if it's comparable to my Redken shampoo/ conditioner.

Softlips Cube ($3.49)

"Think outside the stick with Softlips Cube.  Revolutionary 5-in-1 lip care combines an advacned formula with an innovative new cube-shaped package.  Lips look radiant and feel softer, smoother, and more hydrated.  It is available in four delightful flavors: Pomegranate Blueberry, Fresh Mint, Vanilla Bean, and Strawberry."

Ok, I am so excited to try this!  I saw it advertised in my local Walgreens, but I didn't pick it up because I have a ton of lip balms I need to use up.  This reminds me of the EOS lip balms, but I really like the packaging on this a lot more.  I've used Softlips lip balm in the past; I'm not 100% sure if I liked the product or not.  I've been looking for a super-moisturizing lip balm (here's hoping this is the one!).

Sour Punch Rainbow Straws ($1.29 - $1.59)

"Sour Punch Rainbow Straws are soft, chewy, straw-shaped candy that delivers the perfect balance of delicious fruit flavor and our signature sour crystal coating that will make your moth pucker with delight.  Sour Punch Rainbow Straws is first to deliver an assortment of all your favorite sour flavors in one package: Strawberry, Green Apple, blue Raspberry, and our brand new Lemon Straws, only available in this new assorted pack!"

I. Love. Sour. Candies!  Honestly, these are probably my favorite sour candy- I usually end up sneaking these into the movie theater.  I love the flavors (especially the strawberry and green apple), and I'm excited to try the lemon sour straws.  I'll probably end up eating these later tonight while I'm catching up on my Netflix shows :)

Sour Punch Punchies ($0.89 - $1.29)

"The wacky Sour Punch Punchies characters have come to life in a sour, chewy, soft-shell candy.  Each mouth-watering bite-size piece packs the perfect punch of fruity-sweet and sour.  Sour Punch Punchies come in five delicious flavors including Strawberry, Blue Raspberry, Green Apple, Lemon, and Tangerine, and each piece has the iconic, wacky PUN-CHI face!  Eat them one at a time, or mix them together for a fruitacular candy experience!"

I'm usually not a huge fan of chewy candies, but I'll definitely try these!  I'm glad we got two different sour candies in this box- I've been craving something sweet/ sour for about a week now haha
I'm not sure if I'll like the Tangerine flavor, but we'll see.

eBay Guides Campaign

"Want an easy $25 to treat yourself?  You've got it!  Head to your Dashboard to check out your exclusive access to the latest and greatest eBay Campaign.  Share your expertise on topics from the Inspiration Tool by writing 2 guides on eBay that follow the requirements (on the badge page), and that's an easy $25 to eBay in your pocket.  Check out the insert for more information!"

So this is a new thing Influenster has started including in the VoxBoxes.  I'm not 100% sure how this works, but I'll figure it out and let you know how easy/ difficult it was to score the $25 gift card.

Thank you for checking this post out!  I'll see you again soon with reviews on each of the products from this box :)
