I received the Influenster Frosty VoxBox right before Christmas and couldn’t wait to play around with all the fun stuff inside. Here is what it came with:
ABOUT: “Replenish your mind and body and awaken your senses with Celestial Seasonings® Holiday Teas. Our Candy Cane Lane® Decaf Green Tea is made with the very finest green tea leaves, peppermint and other botanicals, because at Celestial Seasonings, we know you are what you steep. Live life well this holiday season with Celestial Seasonings.”
MY REVIEW: I am in love with Celestial Seasonings Candy Cane Lane tea. It is perfection in my opinion. No need to even add sugar or honey, it has the perfect minty taste. I love that it is decaf too, perfect for pregnant and nursing mamas.
ABOUT: “No7 Protect & Perfect Advanced Serum – Powerful prevention. Supercharge your skincare regime with this clinically proven serum*. No7’s highly acclaimed Protect & Perfect technology has been re-engineered to deliver even better anti-aging results. Independently tested and proven to work.

MY REVIEW: This seemed nice, but the sample size was so small I can’t say for sure. It would be great to try a full 4 week trial.
ABOUT: “The freshest flavors deserve a fresh new look! McCormick Gourmet’s Thyme imparts a light minty flavor that is distinctively warm and aromatic. We use FlavorSealed technology to lock in the fresh thyme flavor and deliver it to you. Our All Natural Thyme can be used throughout the day in dishes such as breakfast casseroles, hearty soups, stews, stuffing and oven-roasted chicken.”
MY REVIEW: I threw some McCormick’s Thyme on some broccoli and cauliflower I was roasting last night and it was delish! It was a fun variation from the usually salt and pepper for roasted veggies. They also suggest throwing it in egg bakes and I can’t wait to try that since we love eggs in my house.
ABOUT: “Fruit Vines® Bites are a new, soft, chewy fruit candy, from the Red Vines® family, available in two fruit flavors – strawberry and cherry. Low fat and made with no preservatives, Fruit Vines® Bites are available in three sizes: a 2oz single serve, a 5oz hanging bag and a 10oz re-sealable stand-up bag and can be found at Walmart in the West, Kroger, Walgreens, Target and Safeway and Rite Aid. “
MY REVIEW: Brace yourselves, these are awesome. Like, finish-the-whole-bag-in-one-sitting awesome. I am not even a huge fan of candy and I loved these.
ABOUT: “Ideal for styling longer locks, the rounded brush design creates gorgeous volume and style.
Best Hair Type: Long hair, thin to medium hair.
Desired Look / Hair Effect: Smooth and more volume.”
MY REVIEW: I am a big fan of EcoTools brand products, I have a few makeup brushes of theirs I love, and this brush was no exception. I am ready to throw out my old round brush. This replaced it for styling right out of the shower with a blow dryer. It gave me a ton of volume which I am always in need of. You can find it on Amazon for under ten bucks.
ABOUT: “At the end of the day, Just Let It Go with Rimmel London’s Gentle Eye Makeup Remover. This Eye Makeup Remover gently removes all eye make up, including long lasting & waterproof make up, with no oily residue. Gently remove all of your eye makeup and start fresh again in the morning!
– Removes all eye makeup – including waterproof mascara
– Oil Free
– Suitable for sensitive eyes & contact lens wearers.
– Dermatologist & ophthalmologist tested”
MY REVIEW: I am not a huge fan of make-up remover in general because it requires keeping cotton balls on hand, which I don’t. This make-up remover was, however, very impressive at cutting through make-up that usually would require lots of scrubbing with just a cloth and soap. I will definitely keep it on hard for the heavy make-up days.
ABOUT: “Get long lasting shocking color intensity with Rimmel London’s Scandaleyes Kohl Kajal Eyeliners. Their high intensity pigments give you an instant color impact and the ultra smooth & creamy formula glides on easily. They are waterproof, smudge-proof, sweat-proof, heat-proof, humidity-proof and scandal- proof!
– Waterproof, smudge-proof, sweat-proof
– Dermatologist & ophthalmologist tested.
– Safe for sensitive eyes.
– Available in 10 shades”
MY REVIEW: Rimmel’s Scandaleyes was a little tricky to put on, but once it was on it was awesome. I wore it on Christmas eve and (embarrassingly enough) never washed my face that night. Christmas morning it still looking great while we opened presents. I have never had anything that didn’t turn crazy, smudgy in a pencil. This one’s a keeper.
ABOUT: “Ready to take your lips to the next level? Try our NEW Expert Last Lip Color in twenty tantalizing shades. Get intense amplified color and shine that lasts up to 6 hours! Our moisturizing formula glides of easily for a silky, smooth, velvety finish for all day wear.”
MY REVIEW: I am usually a person who skips lipstick and lipgloss in general because it seems like it always rubs off so fast! I mean, like, before I have even left the house. This actually stayed on a long time and was a very flattering color. Another keeper!
