May 2012 Influenster VoxBox

Hola kittens! Today I'd like to share my very first Influenster *VoxBox. Influenster is a website that offers consumers the opportunity to sample and review products suited to their likes and interests and share their thoughts and opinions with others. I signed up for Influenster in February and this is the first time I've been chosen to receive a VoxBox to review. Appropriately enough, it is beauty-themed! I was so excited to receive this box yesterday and find out what fun items I would get to try. Here is a shot of the contents of my box:
I received:
14 oz. Bath & Body Works Fine Fragrance Mist in Sweet Pea
0.05 oz. Sheer Cover Duo Concealer in Light/Medium
Sally Hansen Salon Effects in Frock Star
Dr. Scholl's For Her Ball of Foot Cushions (One Pair)
Sally Hansen Salon Effects Brochure
2 fl. oz. Aveeno Daily Moisturizing Body Wash
ChapStick Lip SHIELD 365
1.05 oz. Strawberry SOYJOY Bar 

I also received a card listing the contents of the box (minus the Dr. Scholl's.  I was told in an e-mail I received from Influenster prior to receiving the box that there would be an additional surprise not indicated on the card included.  The Dr. Scholl's was it!)  Here is the card:

I am REALLY excited to try out all of these products and I will, of course, update this post with my reviews as I try them.  So far, I've only used the Bath & Body Works Fine Fragrance Mist and I LOVE it!  I have been a fan of BBW products for years but I tend to choose either "fruity" or "foodie" fragrances.  To be honest, Sweet Pea is not a fragrance I normally would have gravitated towards by name alone.  I tend to shy away from anything "floral" as those types of scents sometimes trigger my allergies.  However, Sweet Pea is a very light clean scent, very subtly floral, and I think it has hints of fruitiness as well.  I've sprayed it on two or three times since I received it yesterday and while the scent, sadly, doesn't last a terribly long time, it smells wonderful and hasn't bothered my allergies at all.  It is such a big bottle, a full-sized 14 ounces, I don't mind spraying it on repeatedly throughout the day.  

Thanks for looking!  If you have tried any of these products, I'd love to hear your thoughts!


*Disclosure: I received these products complimentary as a part of Influenster's VoxBox program for the purposes of testing and review.  All opinions expressed are completely my own.

This box looks very exciting! I wish we had it here too.....
Do you usually go with high heels? I would love to hear your opinion about the ball of foot if you get the chance

To be honest, I think I've worn heels maybe twice in my life, lol. However, I do wear platforms on occasion so I'll probably see if they will work with them. I'll definitely let you know how they work for me. *hugs*
