Influenster Frosty Vox Box - Unboxing & Review!

I am very lucky to be a part of Influenster as I love trying new things and sharing my thoughts!  I received the most recent Frosty Vox Box with an interesting mix of items!  Check them out:


Influenster always sends a contents card to tell you what you received:


And many items come with coupons so in case you love your new samples, you can save on your next purchase:


I am going to split this into makeup/beauty products and then food related items.  First, this is my new hairbrush! It is by ecoTools and has a sturdy wooden handle and soft plastic bristles.  My hair is thick and long and often tangled.  This slid right through without yanking too hard.  I was actually in need of a new brush, so thanks, Influenster!

I also received a Rimmel Kohl Waterproof eyeliner.  I did give one to my Mom because I use liquid but I have tried Rimmel pencils in the past and they do have great staying power.  As you can see from the swatch on my hand, it's very pigmented, too:

They also sent a frosty (keeping with the theme?) purple/mauve lipstick called Sugar Plum.  It is soft and applies nicely, but it is a little frosty for my taste:

A full size Rimmel makeup remover was awesome to see in the box!

However...after I swatched the lipstick and eyeliner on my hand, I used the Rimmel makeup remover to get it off and I had a really, really, reeeeally hard time getting the eyeliner off.  Normally I would understand that but the remover package boasts that it works well on waterproof makeup.  I disagree, unfortunately.

On the other hand, the lipstick is supposed to be "ever lasting" and the eyeliner has great staying power so maybe, just maybe, this proves the lasting power of the makeup? LOL, not sure. But you can clearly see some sparkle from the lipstick and some leftover eyeliner on my hand and this was after a LOT of scrubbing!

No.7 Advanced Serum was a welcome addition, too. I love anything in a silken serum formula.  This is a one time use packet but coupons are included for a full size.  I used this after washing my face and before moisturizer. It has a silky, lovely texture.


The food related items include a full size bottle of thyme, a bag of fruit snacks, and a sample of Celestial Seasonings Candy Cane Lane seasonal tea:


I also received a full size bottle of McCormick thyme.  I am not much of a cook, to be honest. I am much better at calling for take out or going to a local restaurant, LOL. Honestly, though, spices are not cheap so I am thankful for this item.


Last but not least, my boyfriend snagged this full size bag of Red Vines Fruit Vines Bites in cherry flavor.  I had to steal the bag back to take a picture of it, so safe to say, these are pretty tasty, LOL.


In general, this was a nice mix of items!  Thank you to Influenster for the chance to try them and a extra thanks for the new brush!

  1. i received a box too, and i had the exact thoughts when i tried using the eye makeup remover! i'm not sure why people rated it so highly on influenster.... i did try it on my eyes and it was ok, but not that great.. i basically had to use a separate remover to finish the job. >.>

I am continuing to try to use up products that have been laying around, including perfumes. So far, so good. Let me show you what I used in ...
