I believe I originally read about Influenster on the blog Bravoe Runway. I went to their website, filled out a survey and started unlocking badges, with no real goal in mind. Then I got an email asking me if I would like to receive the February Love Voxbox. This was completely free. Of course, I said yes.
A few weeks later, it arrived. My Voxbox contained:
1) Gilletter Venus & Olay Razor
2) Kiss Nail Dress- Fashion That Sticks
3) Stash Tea Herbal Tea Sampler
4) Ghiradelli Gourmet Milk Creamy Devotion
5) Truvia Natural Sweetener
The first thing I sampled was the Ghiradelli chocolate, which was devoured in about ten minutes (husband and I like our Sunday night sweets). Next. I tried the mango passionfruit Stash tea with some Truvia to sweeten it. I really liked the flavor of the tea, but need to get used to the sort of aftertaste that Truvia had (to me). However, I understand stevia is a healthier sweetener than refined sugar, so I am willing to give it a another shot. I also tried the Venus razor, which I ended up liking a lot. It does feel very moisturizing, and I adore the fact that it comes with its own hanger for the shower that sticks to the wall via suction. Kind of a brilliant design, in my opinion.
The one thing I did not get a chance to try was the patterned fashion nail strips. They have a leopard pattern, and I am not totally sure I could pull the off in my (usually) liberal work setting. I might still give it a try.
Have you heard of or joined Influenster? If you like receiving a free package of items you may or may not like, and then talking about them on your blog, it might be fun for you to sign up. I personally, am looking forward to receiving my next box.
