I am way overdue on updating this blog… I am so sorry! Finally getting around to posting about some of the great things we got in March„, it was a great month for Beauty Boxes!
I was lucky enough to be surprised with the LOVE VoxBox from Influenster!

ONTO THE GOODS! :)
The theme of this box was Love, of course! Just in time for Valentine’s Day. It was full of goodies to get you date ready and a few things to share with your sweetie. Let’s break it down…
-Stash Tea Herbal Tea Sampler: Stash Tea is located here in Oregon where we are from so I was verypleased to see htis in the box! I am already a big fan of Stash and I love to support local business! The teas in this pack are amazing! There are 9 flavors in this box with two tea bags each. What an awesome freebie! My favorite of the bunch is Wild Raspberry Hibiscus. I cannot get enough of this one! I was so sad there was only two of this flavor. I will be hitting up the Stash Tea store in Bridgeport soon to get my hands on some more!
-Ghiradelli Gourmet Milk: This was a giant chocolate bar, and has definitely become my new favorite. It is so creamy and sweet! They say to share this with your significant other but I definitely kept this to myself. Too good!
-Kiss Nail Dress: I was really excited to see these in my box as I am a beauty and manicure nerd. These are nail stickers that you stick on your nail and file off the excess for an instant, no dry, fabulous manicure in some really fun patterns! I have tried and love the Incoco Nail Appliques which are the same idea and love the idea of having some impressive nail art to display without all the work so I was excited about a more budget friendly option in the Kiss nail dress. These were one of the first things I tried out of my box and I hate to say it, but I was really disappointed with these. The stickers didn’t seem to fit my nail shape well and didn’t have any stretch, I also had a problem filing these down, they were pretty rough after. I took thm off a day later because they were bugging the heck out of me! They left a lot of residue on my nails too after I removed them. Stick to Incoco for your instant nail art needs! :)
-Truvia Natural Sweetener: Let’s be honest here. I drink a good amount of sugar-free Red Bull. The sugar makes me crash hard in the afternoon so I skip it when it comes to energy drinks. I know the artificial sweeteners are atrocious though. Truvia is a sugar substitute that is naturally made and I was thrilled to see this as I have been wanting to try it! I put it in my cup of Stash Tea the other morning and was pleased that it wasn’t overly sweet like most other artificial sweeteners. Definitely give this one a try, you’ll feel a lot better about using it!
-Gillette & Olay Venus Razor: I was SO excited to get this razor! Have you bought a razor in the store? They are so expensive! I was so happy to get this as I needed a new razor and am always on the hunt for a blade that won’t nick the hell out of my legs. This razor is fantastic. It has two moisture bars surrounding the 5 blades for a close shave that doesn’t need shaving cream. I love when I can skip a step! :) The moisture bars are so nice too! Olay moisturizers are already great so it’s no surprise but they left my legs super smooth. Definitely pick this one up, ladies! :)
I also received some great coupons to buy these products as well… score! I was really happy with all but the Kiss Nail Dress. Not a bad deal! Remember it’s completely free to sing up for influenster… and who doesn’t want their voice to be heard?! Make sure to head to http://www.influenster.com and sign up! You definitely don’t want to miss out!
That’s all for now girls… will be back this week to post about Birchbox (Teen Vogue boxes this month… oh they were so good!), Green Grab Bag (AMAZING bag this month too) and Julep Maven! :) Thanks so much for following our blog! Talk to you all soon!
