A Magic Box

I love receiving packages in the mail, I mean who doesn't? So when my Influenster Jolly VoxBox arrived I was a little more than excited. It was filled to the brim with goodies I had no idea what to expect. I made my way through the box and underneath the beautiful postcard explaining the program I found the a box of Skinny Cow Candies, Puffs, a Ducklings Miniroll, NYC New York Color HD Color Trio Eye Shadow and Rimmel London Show Off Lip Lacquer.

Skinny Cow Candy - The way to the heart of a woman is almost certainly chocolate or wine. In this case we're talking chocolate and to be completely honest I didn't have high hopes for a 130 calorie chocolate candy. We've all been told we can't have our cake and eat it too, but in the case of Skinny Cow Candy it's simply not true. Each night after I put the baby to bed, I sit on the couch with a glass of milk and these candies and it's a great way to unwind and end the evening. I received the peanut butter filled candies and just as the box says, they're divine. Learn more about Skinny Cow Candy here.

NYC New York Color HD Color Trio Eye Shadow - Before trying this eye shadow this was the product I thought I'd dislike the most. I've been to the drugstore and seen the New York Color Cosmetics section. The products look great but they're so affordable I just thought they couldn't be that great. Boy was I wrong! This was my favorite product in the box and I wear the HD Color Trio almost everyday. I received the color palate called Long Beach Sands and it's a collection of beautiful tans and browns that create an office-appropriate look but can be glammed up for a night out. I was most surprised by how long the eye shadow lasts.  Learn more about NYC Color Cosmetics here.

Puffs - We've all heard of Puffs Facial Tissues but like most things they're taken for granted until you need them. I've been a long-time user of Puffs because the Puff To Go are the perfect size to take with me everywhere and when I use them they don't irritate my nose. I carry them in my purse and diaper bag and I keep a pack in my car, at my desk and randomly placed throughout house. The other day I dropped the baby off for his first day of daycare and I was a mess. I cried all the whole way to work and I was so grateful to have my Puffs handy so I could clean up my smeared makeup before walking into the office. Learn more about Puffs here.

Rimmel London Show Off Lip Lacquer - I typically shy away from lip color because it just doesn't last. Well that's not the case with the Show Off Lip Lacquer! I drink a couple cups of coffee each morning and the color stays with me through every sip. Plus I love the texture. I wasn't crazy about the color I received so I'm on the search for the perfect tint but once I find it I'll be wearing this everyday! Learn more about Rimmel London here

Ducklings Mini Rolls - I've always thought Duck Tape was the bulky gray tape that solves every problem a man could have, it wasn't really something I would use. Now that it's available in beautiful patterns like the Ducklings Mini Rolls I'm sold that Duck Tape is a product for me. The tape is so beautiful I used it to wrap Christmas gifts and for you DIYers the possibilities are limitless. Learn more about Ducklings Mini Rolls here.  

I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes.

  1. I got this Vox Box too...and I loved the eye makeup. I'm not a huge makeup wearer, so I love when makeup tells me where to apply it!! And those Skinny Cow chocolates...mmmm.

    1. I love the eye makeup too! And hello Skinny Cow!!!!

  2. I'm signed up I do the badges am connected but I don't get a box what am I doing wrong or not doing help please

    1. Amber, I'm not 100% sure why I got selected to receive the box but I would suggest linking all your social media outlets and then going in and doing some product reviews and answer product questions. I did that before I ever received a VoxBox and about a week later I was notified that I would be receiving the JollyVoxBox. I hope that helps!
