#HolidayVoxBox from @Influenster

If you follow me on a href="https://twitter.com/#!/whatchamakinnow" target="blank"twitter/a or a href="http://instagram.com/cfanders" target="blank"instragram/a you probably saw that I received my first Inflenster VoxBox before Christmas. I was pretty excited to see free stuff sitting by my front door! Here is a review of the items in the box.br /br /div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"a href="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-G-VJ-Tufd8M/UPdbSlnU4cI/AAAAAAAAFYA/YveebIelUic/s1600/2012-12-26+14.37.41.jpg" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"img border="0" height="400" src="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-G-VJ-Tufd8M/UPdbSlnU4cI/AAAAAAAAFYA/YveebIelUic/s400/2012-12-26+14.37.41.jpg" width="400" //a/divbr /div class="MsoNormal"ispan style="font-size: large;"Likes: /span/i/divdiv class="MsoNormal"br //divdiv class="MsoNormal"bNYC New York Color Liquid Lipshine - $2.49/b/divdiv class="MsoNormal"I really really like this lipshine! I talked about it more a href="http://whatchamakinnow.blogspot.com/2013/01/2-thingsbreakfast-and-liquidlipshine.html" target="blank"over here/a. I’m not a huge lipstick user simply because I’m constantly drinking water or pop. But this lipshine is not sticky and doesn’t rub right off. It also smells amazing! I would buy this product again in a heartbeat!  br /br /div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"a href="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-3EdF4l9Y5ds/UPAmAomhgtI/AAAAAAAAFTU/pXqDpydmMcw/s1600/2013-01-11+08.32.09.jpg" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"img border="0" height="400" src="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-3EdF4l9Y5ds/UPAmAomhgtI/AAAAAAAAFTU/pXqDpydmMcw/s400/2013-01-11+08.32.09.jpg" width="298" //a/divbr //divdiv class="MsoNormal"bQuaker® Real Medleys Oatmeal - $1.79 per cup/b/divdiv class="MsoNormal"My oatmeal was Peach and Almond. It was easy to make and the peach chucks were delicious! This is a nice easy breakfast option and I would buy it again. I did prepare by the recommend method of pouring hot/boiling water into the container and letting it set for 3 minutes. It cooked up nicely and was thick and not watery.  br /br /div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"a href="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-GcM5UAGq4Y8/UPdbfyQZhSI/AAAAAAAAFYw/HfK33fAB9ug/s1600/oatmeal.jpg" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"img border="0" src="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-GcM5UAGq4Y8/UPdbfyQZhSI/AAAAAAAAFYw/HfK33fAB9ug/s1600/oatmeal.jpg" //a/divbr //divdiv class="MsoNormal"bEBOOST® - $28.00 for box of 20 packets/b/divdiv class="MsoNormal"My flavor packet was Pink Lemonade. The directions say to add to 12 ounces of water but I opted for closer to 18 ounces. I do drink of fair amount of Crystal Light and always add more than the recommended amount of water so it’s not soooo strong. I tried this at work in the afternoon, when I normally turn to a pop with caffeine. The powder bubbled up and dissolved very quickly. I liked the flavor and drank it all. And, I didn’t need a pop like I normally do! I also liked that the powder didn’t settle in the bottom of my cup; it stayed mixed. I do think I would have to drink this for a few days to really see the benefit but I would give it another try.  br /br /div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"a href="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-95TnW9EseA/UPdbayAG1I/AAAAAAAAFYY/kLcjwUBpVLQ/s1600/2012-12-27+10.08.18.jpg" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"img border="0" height="320" src="http://3.bp.blogspot.com/-95TnW9EseA/UPdbayAG1I/AAAAAAAAFYY/kLcjwUBpVLQ/s320/2012-12-27+10.08.18.jpg" width="317" //a/divbr //divdiv class="MsoNormal"br //divdiv class="MsoNormal"ispan style="font-size: large;"Not my favs: /span/i/divdiv class="MsoNormal"br //divdiv class="MsoNormal"bKiss® Nail Dress - $6.99/b/divdiv class="MsoNormal"These are basically like stick on nails but more of a flexible vinyl like material. I saw other styles of this product via pictures on Instagram and the enclosed directions that were much cuter than the ones in my box. But I’m not complaining – free is always nice! I don’t usually do my nails but I did test the application process. It did go on easily, but with short nails I found that filing off the excess made the edge look kind of sloppy. I think with longer nails it would work better. br /br /div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"a href="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-dUsszglvviY/UPdbfOMHbKI/AAAAAAAAFYo/TTKvuKpqGB0/s1600/2013-01-15+15.10.06.jpg" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"img border="0" height="320" src="http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-dUsszglvviY/UPdbfOMHbKI/AAAAAAAAFYo/TTKvuKpqGB0/s320/2013-01-15+15.10.06.jpg" width="318" //a/divbr /div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"/divbr //divdiv class="MsoNormal"bGoody® QuickStyle Brush (Half Round Styler) - $11.99/b/divdiv class="MsoNormal"I’m pretty particular with my hair. I have long, straight, thick hair. It usually takes me about 7-10 minutes to dry every morning so when I saw that this brush could save time I was intrigued. However, the directions recommend using the brush as you are drying and I’m soooo not good at that; I don’t even understand how hairdressers do it. The directions did say you could use it for detangling when wet so I tried that method. The brush is plastic and fairly light. I felt like it actually pulled my hair more than the paddle brush I use every day ever has. I think for $12 I was expecting a little better quality. I like the idea of microfibers within the brush, but I think I’ll stick to my paddle brush from Avada. It’s the best.   But I'm still a goody® fan! I only use their black hair ties. Love them.br /br /div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"a href="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-MV9u3LqvMtU/UPddsk7GCfI/AAAAAAAAFZo/lb59pc9RCg/s1600/brush.jpg" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"img border="0" src="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-MV9u3LqvMtU/UPddsk7GCfI/AAAAAAAAFZo/lb59pc9RCg/s1600/brush.jpg" //a/divbr //divdiv class="MsoNormal"bMontagne Jeunesse Face Masks – under $2.00/b/divdiv class="MsoNormal"I thought this was a smoothie sample until I read the package. I love a good face mask. It’s an easy way to relax and treat yourself to a little spa time right at home. The mask was easy to apply, felt nice, and smelled yummy. After 15 minutes it was easy to wash off. I didn't notice much 'deep clean' difference in my skin; more just like my normal face wash.br /br /div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"a href="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-BFEpnKo8r8/UPdbbvx7A4I/AAAAAAAAFYg/YK2EXSn6h3A/s1600/2013-01-05+13.10.20.jpg" style="margin-left: 1em; margin-right: 1em;"img border="0" height="320" src="http://1.bp.blogspot.com/-BF_EpnKo8r8/UPdbbvx7A4I/AAAAAAAAFYg/YK2EXSn6h3A/s320/2013-01-05+13.10.20.jpg" width="318" //a/divdiv class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"br //divdiv class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: left;"I had so much fun testing these products.
