Influenster: Spring Fling VoxBox | May 2014

Hello June! 
This year I've decided to step out of my Scrapbooking, Planning, and Crafting niche to pursue another passion... Beauty. Don't get me wrong! I love Project Life, my Filofaxes, and Crafts, and you'll see a few posts about them here and there. But I felt it was time for something new... a change. 

I wouldn't call myself a "Beauty Guru." I'm just someone who's passionate about beauty, makeup, and skincare. Through my blog I'll be sharing my thoughts and experiences about new products, revealing the goodies from my beauty boxes, and giving product reviews for the awesome free Test Panels that I'm a part of.

It's a new month, and soon Spring will become Summer. You know what that means? Plenty of sunshine! I don't know about you, but I change up my makeup and beauty care routine when the warm weather comes. Feel free to check out my Spring Beauty Must-Haves for 2014. Being given the chance to test out some new Spring products courtesy of Influenster, means that I'll definitely have some new favorites!

If you're not familiar with Influenster, it's a community of consumers who like to share their opinions and experiences about different products they use everyday. Certain Influensters qualify for exclusive programs where members receive complimentary products to test and review. All they ask is to share your thoughts and opinions with friends and followers on social media.

I became a member in April and qualified for the Spring Fling VoxBox in May. It's my very first box, and I'm super excited to try out all of these new, fun products! 

Here is what I received:

Playtex Sport Fresh Balance: $3.99-$4.99
I haven't had the chance to use these tampons yet, but based on what I've seen advertised on TV, they look like they will be great for active women needing extra protection. I'll be sure to update this post with my review when I get the chance to test them out.

Kiss Everlasting French Nails: $6.49
I can't wait to give these false nails a try! I'm normally a polish girl and haven't used press-on nails since high school almost 20 years ago. Since shying away from acrylic nails a while back, I like the idea of these store-bought, not-so-permanent French nails. The directions seem easy enough, and the inexpensive price tag (compared to an acrylic/gel set from a salon) means I won't be breaking the bank. I'll be sure to update this post with my review when I test them out.

Softlips Cube: $3.49
I've been a user of Softlips for over a decade, so when I saw this new 5-in-1 Lip Care Cube I was super excited to try it out! Since it has SPF 15, it's perfect for Spring and Summer. It nourishes and hydrates my extremely dry lips, and the Pomegranate Berry scent is fresh and lovely. I really like this product and will definitely purchase it when I run out! I think I found a new favorite...

Rimmel London Scandaleyes Retro Glam Mascara: $5.99
Since I'm currently working on a new tube of mascara already, I haven't yet had the chance to test out this one. I do love its "bold, wide-eyed, fanned-out volume" claims and am extremely tempted to use it with my current mascara. I will definitely update this post when I have the chance to test it out.

NIVEA Skin Firming Hydration Lotion: $2.49 for 2.5oz. / $10.99 for 13.5oz.
This product claims that in as little as 2 weeks you'll see firmer, more toned skin. I can't say that's true based on my own experience, since I haven't used it for two weeks. But I can say that the lightweight formula leaves my skin very hydrated and super soft. It also has a nice scent that isn't too strong or overpowering.

As you can see, Influenster is pretty awesome! I still can't believe that I received $25- worth of products for free. I hope you enjoyed my post and discovered a few new products along the way! You can find me at CLRoy2014 on Influenster. To see what I've been up to in my other Test Panel communities, check out all of my links here.

Are you an Influenster? Did you get a Spring Fling VoxBox too? Any thoughts, questions, or comments about this post? I'd love to hear it! Your feedback is always welcome and much appreciated.

Thanks for stopping by!
