Finally it is here! I was very excited to receive my #GoVoxBox from Influenster. This was something that completely interested me because of its health related nature. As I am about to start training for my half marathon I was excited to be picked to be a part of this program. There were a lot of health products associated with the box which was really nice to see. It was also crazy because it was like this box was made for me and my terrible athletic feet and love of baths and smoothies.
On a side note, when you sign up for Influenster you are allowed to pick five expert badges which are based on your interests. You are limited with these because no one can be an expert at everything so Influenster wants to help you focus on what you actually know. One of my expert badges is called the Six Pack Badge which has to do with health and wellness.
Like the #UniVoxBox this box had the new Playtex Sport Fresh Balance Tampons. This was awesome because as any girl knows, you can always use more tampons and when they are FREE….even better. I love the Playtex Sport Brand so I was definitely excited to get another box of them. You can see my post Play It On for more information regarding the Playtex brand.
The next product in the box was Blueberry Almonds by Blue Diamond! I am a fan of almonds especially for snacking at work or in class. The Blue Diamond brand has created a really awesome product. Who would have thought almonds could be blueberry flavored? These were really unique and I have never really tasted anything like it. When you think of cocoa dusted almonds, this is a similar product just with a blueberry dusting. I am excited to try the other varieties of this spinoff of cocoa almonds; however, as a girl and a chocolate lover, I think the cocoa dusted almonds may always been #1 in my heart.
Another awesome part about Influenster that I really enjoy and this was my first experience with it – is that not all products come in the box, some you have to go to the store and pick out yourself. This was the case with Muller yogurt. I like this concept because it means that products that could spoil are not ruled out from boxes. When I went to the store there were several different kinds to try out. I like to try all the different brand’s versions of Greek yogurt so I went with the Muller Greek Yogurt Corner. I selected the Honeyed Apricot because it sounded unique. It was delicious and creamy. I think I like this version of apricot better than the Chobani version of apricot.
Two products in the box were from Profoot Care. There was a set of orthodics and a pedicure rock. The orthodics were a little small for my feet I found, but will work nicely as a back up set. I have extremely high arches so I have worn custom orthodics in my basketball shoes all throughout college. Obviously something that comes in a box is not going to be as customized to me but they are definitely a nice backup but I would not use them if I was to go run long distances or play basketball.
The second item, the pedi rock – is awesome! My teammates used to joke that I had the grossest feet on the team! Honestly I do because during season I am not worried about getting pedicures because they will get ruined after one practice, why waste the money. The rock would have been awesome to have after a long practice! I really enjoy it and am looking forward to my boyfriend not saying, “I have the best feet in the relationship”, because now I will.
This box was so full it was exciting to go through and find out what variety of the products you got. When it came to Aqua Spa, I received the Lavender + Chamomile body lotion. It smells amazing. I like using it after a long post-workout showers or baths. I think I will end up using the lotion in the evenings more because the scent tends to make me sleepy.
Finally the last company that was included in this Vox Box was Vitamin Shoppe. They included 3 of their new meal replacement shakes and a shaker bottle to make them in. So far I have only tried the chocolate version and found it very rich when prepared as the package directions say with water but found it much more enjoyable with soy milk. Now I am not trying to use it as a weight loss tool so that helps me have more flexibility on how I prepare the shakes. I really do like the shaker bottle. It is really easy to clean and use and the lid does not stick shut like some blender bottles I have had. When I try the next two shakes I plan to make one with soy milk and the other into a smoothie!
So I have been apart of Influenster since the very end of January and I have already received 3 boxes. I can’t wait to receive another Vox Box from Influenster in the future because the last three have been so good! I do not know why anyone wouldn’t want to be a part of this awesome service. Who wouldn’t want to sign-up, receive free products that are customized to them and then give the companies their feedback? What is great is you feel like the companies are actually listening to you and you are helping them improve their products!
