I received the Influenster Vitality Voxbox!
More awesome free stuff this month from Influenster
I have a confession.
One of the best perks for being somewhat well known in my little niche of pilates, reiki, and social media is free stuff. I am more than happy to attend fun events, try new products, and blog or share about them. And I love that brands are open and willing to work with me!
One of my most surprising finds has been a local Tribeca company, Influenster. I have had some of the best free stuff to try in their Voxboxes – full of full size products, not teeny samples.
This time around I qualified for the Vitality Voxbox. This box contained Bikini Ready Energy Gummies, a Softlips cube, a bottle of Pure Leaf iced tea, a box of Playtex Sport tampons, a tube of First Degree Advanced Burn Cream, and Elizabeth Arden Flawless Future Serum. The retail value was approximately $50.
The Pure Leaf tea was OK. Unsweetened organic iced tea that tasted great on a hot day.
According to my colleagues who use them, the Playtex Sport tampons are fabulous and leak-free.
I used the First Degree burn cream on a stove burn, and it settled things enough that there was no blister. I also decided to use it on a blister on my foot, and it helped it heal faster. Great product!
While I am often hesitant to try new face products, I do love the texture of the Flawless Future serum. It sinks right in, is not greasy at all, and my skin does seem a bit more luminous (I have genetically great skin, so it’s not always easy for me to see what a product does quickly).
The Softlips cube has become a favorite lip balm of mine. I bought a few after this one, and it tastes good and works well.
And then we have the Bikini Ready Energy Gummies. Much as I stay away from weight loss supplements, I decided to try these as they only contain caffeine (50mg in a serving of 5 gummies, about 1/2 a cup of strong coffee) and vitamin B12. And they work! The taste isn’t perfect, but it’s a supplement, not candy. I found good sustained energy that didn’t make me jittery and made working out a little bit easier. These I surprisingly recommend.
