Review: Summer Influenster Vox Box

Sunday July 29th, 2012 at 9:59 pm

I received my Summer Influenster VoxBox a while ago so this is a bit late. I have to say, I was excited to know I was receiving a box after missing out on the Spring Vox Box, which was amazing.

So what is Influenster? Influenster is not a subscription service, you don’t pay a monthly subscription fee and then sent a box. Instead, boxes are sent out to qualifying members based on badges earned, demographics, and internal influence scores. Members who are qualified then receive an official notification and upon acceptance, are shipped the next Vox Box.

The more badges you earn, the higher chance you have of receiving a box. On top of the badges earned for completing surveys about yourself, you can also earn badges from completing challenges based on Vox Boxes received. Those that complete the required amount from the challenge are automatically eligible for the following Vox Box.

The Summer Vox Box came with a variety of products. Mine arrived a little beat up but the products came all intact with no major problems.

Contents for the Summer Vox Box include:

  • Hawaiian Tropic Silk Hydration Lotion
  • Tampax and Always Radiant Collection
  • Quaker Soft Baked Bars in Banana Nut Bread
  • Sally Hansen Magnetic Nail Color
  • Sally Hansen Nails and Cuticles Hand Creme
  • Based on demographics, select influensters also received the Clear Scalp and Hair Beauty Therapy, which I did not receive.

    Hawaiian Tropic Silk Hydration Lotion [Purchase]

    Actual Value: $9.99 (6 fl oz)
    Vox Box Value: $3.33 (2 fl oz)

    Description: With its ultra-luxurious hydrating silk ribbons, Hawaiian Tropic Silk Hydration lotion sunscreen nourishes and pampers skin while providing broad spectrum UVA and UVB protection, and 12 hour moisturization when out in the sun.

    Hawaiian Tropic Silk Hydration Lotion has a very sweet, tropical fruit smell. I can definitely smell a bit of coconut and maybe some pineapple plus various other fruits. I don’t dislike the scent but it is too strong for my liking. I probably won’t be able to use this lotion all over my body. The lotion is great if you just want some extra sun protection when going outside but I wouldn’t recommend using this in water even if it doubles as a sunscreen.

    Tampax and Always Radiant Collection [Purchase]

    Actual Value: $10.77 (Tampax Radiant Unscented Tampons (16 ct), Always Radiant Infinity Regular with Wings Fresh Scented Pads (16 ct), Always Radiant Incredibly Unscented Thin Liners (64 ct))
    Vox Box Value: Less than $1.00 (Tampax Radiant Unscented Tampons (2 ct), Always Radiant Infinity Regular with Wings Fresh Scented Pads (1 ct), Always Radiant Incredibly Unscented Thin Liners (1 ct))

    Description: Tampax and Always have come together to premiere the all-new, stylish Radiant Collection, a complete offering of premium tampons, pads, liners, and wipes that meets all of a woman’s feminine care needs. With designer packaging and wrappers, these products are must-have accessories for that time of the month.

    You can also choose to purchase each individual item separately. I thought this was a pretty random addition to the bag. Outside of the products, there is also a coupon book and everything was received inside a beautiful purple/magenta pouch that can be used as either a makeup bag, feminine needs bag, or clutch.

    Quaker Soft Baked Bars in Banana Nut Bread [Purchase]

    Actual Value: $3.29 (5 pack)
    Vox Box Value: $0.66 (1 pack)

    Description: Made with real bananas and almonds, Quaker Soft Bars in Banana Nut Bread flavor have tasty ingredients to help provide fuel to start your day. 5g Fiber, 20% daily value of 5 B Vitamins and 6g of protein!

    I gobbled this one up pretty quickly, I love banana nut bread. The bar is a little dry but very chewy and definitely delicious. It would make a great healthy alternative for breakfast or as a snack. You can also request a free sample from Wal-Mart’s website. The bars are also available in Cinnamon Roll Raisin pecan, how good does that sound? I didn’t provide a purchase link since you can find these in just about any grocery store or you can also buy them in bulk from Amazon.

    Sally Hansen Magnetic Nail Color [Purchase]

    Actual Value: $8.99 (0.31 fl oz)
    Vox Box Value: $8.99 (0.31 fl oz)

    Description: Sally Hansen Magnetic Nail Color is summer’s hottest nail trend that allows you to create a gorgeous 3D nail art effect in just seconds! This unique formula was specifically developed with metallic purposes – just hold the built in magnet over wet nail polish to reveal a unique design on the nail.

    I’m pretty sure this is a full sized sample of the product although I couldn’t find how much came in a full size. This isn’t your normal nail polish. Sally Hansen’s Nail Color comes with a built in magnet to help achieve that 3D look on your nails. Just hold the built in magnet to the nail polish for about 10 seconds to watch the effect.

    Sally Hansen Nails and Cuticles Hand Creme [Purchase]

    Actual Value: $5.99 (3.4 oz)
    Vox Box Value: $1.76 (1 oz)

    Description: Made with shea butter, the Sally Hansen Nails and Cuticles Creme softens hands, smooths cuticles and conditions nails. Active moisturizer complex formula with Ceramides helps to lock in nutrients so hands maintain their ideal moisturizer level. Offers 24 hour moisturizer and lasts through hand washings!

    The hand creme is bit greasy but comes in a nice, lemony fresh scent. For its price, it works great on hands/cuticles. If you use it regularly, you should be able to see a difference within a week or two.

    Total Value: Approximately $15.74

    Personally, I think the Spring Vox Box is much better but I didn’t sign up in time to receive it. While the summer vox box is nice, there aren’t too many products in it that I can use. I’m not a huge nail polish person and I already have cuticle creme from Julep. The Hawaiian lotion’s scent is a bit too strong for me and I’m not entirely fond of it. I also don’t use tampons so I’m sure those will be give away o_O Ahh…there’s always next time. Thanks influenster for sending me a box anyway! I had a great time reviewing it.

      In the paper version the ‘Quickie’ pun consists of the first three clues, the third clue/answer being ‘suite’. Regarding the xword today, i found it a bit more challenging than the usual Monday morning offering but very enjoyable. Best clue for me was 20d. Thanx to Compiler and Libellule for the review.
