#ModaVoxBox Review!

I love being an Influenster!  This month's #ModaVoxBox was the best one I have received to date!  Here are my thoughts on the products that I received in exchange for an honest review.

I had really high hopes for this mascara.  My Mary Kay lady gave me the waterproof version of the mascara that I usually use, and it has been driving me crazy, so I realllyyy wanted this mascara to be amazing.   My first impression was that the tube was massive.  And then I opened it up, and the brush was not only massive, but also s-shaped.  I really had no idea how to apply it, so I kind of just guessed and tried to really coat my eyelashes since it didn’t seem to be making much of an effect.  I also posted a picture of my eyelashes asking for an opinion post-application, and two ladies said that my lashes didn’t look full enough.  I tried to give this mascara a second chance the next day – it was Halloween and I was wearing fake eyelashes, so I just needed to blend the real and the fake.  I had even worse results the second day.

Would I repurchase?  No.

This lipstick has a lot of potential.  However, the shade that I was sent – Nude Delight – was not my cup of tea.  It looked like I had rubbed a shade of foundation two shades darker than my skin on my lips.   However, I was really happy with the lipstick for the 30-seconds that I had it on!  It definitely felt creamy and moisturizing, and I’m assuming that it’s long lasting because I could not get it off for the life of me.   (Side note:  I passed this on to my mom who has beautiful Italian skin, and it looked amazing on her.  She confirmed that it is moisturizing and long lasting. )

Would I repurchase? Yes, but in a different shade.

It’s rare that I wear a lipstick without wearing lip liner.  This makes buying drug store lipsticks a little bit trickier.  I had really high hopes for this lip liner, and I was not let down!  I can't bring myself to try it with a red lip yet, but I did try it with my every day lipstick, and it eliminated bleeding of the color!

Would I repurchase?  Yes.

I seriously never buy tissues, with the exception of those little tiny Kleenex packs.  Even then, a three pack gets me through winter.  But now I’m kind of weirded out by the fact that I’m so obsessed with these tissues.  My allergies have been killer this year, to the point that some days I could go through an entire little portable tissue pack.  I love that the Puffs SoftPack is decorative – it actually looks cute sitting on my desk!  And I love that the tissues are soft, but aren’t super aloe-y or lotiony.

Would I repurchase?  Absolutely! 

Hair Food Moisture Mask ($14.99)

I used this on my hair one night then went to bed with it wet.  I woke up with textured hair that didn't seem like anything special.  But throughout the day I realized that the bottom of my hair (which is more than likely dead since my hair is SO long) had shine again!  It also didn't feel as coarse as it usually does.  I hope to continue doing this about once a week.

Would I repurchase?  Yes, but I will be looking for coupons!  I definitely don't feel like it lives up to it's price tag.

Swiss Miss Simply Cocoa ($2.29)

This requires milk, and my stomach hasn't been up for milk lately :( #chronicillnessprobs I will report back though once I try it!  I love Swiss Miss products, so I bet this stuff is amazing!

I was really excited to try this product, probably so excited that I actually squirted a little too much into my hand.  I definitely recommend starting with a little bit and then adding more if you need it, because this stuff is thick!  (Also, if you ever get a ring stuck on your finger, I recommend using this to get it off, because my rings slid off so easily!)  Ultimately, I really enjoyed this product.  And it comes with the “1Week to Gorgeous” Guarantee!  

Would I repurchase?  Yes – maybe even two bottles!  (A small one for my desk and a large one for my bathroom.)

In all honesty, I was saving this bottle of water for a day when I felt extremely hungover, since it is high in electrolytes and those are supposed to help dehydration.  Then I had to remind myself that I’m no longer in college and on my wildest nights I have two drinks.  So I drank it on a day that I accidentally binged on sweet tea and ended up feeling super gross because of that.  I drank a fourth of the bottle and instantly felt less gross!  The same thing may have happened if I drank regular water.  All in all, this is good bottled water – the water tastes fresh and not plastic-y, and the bottle is made from 50% recycled plastic.

Would I repurchase?  Yes!

So, what do you think?  Any products that you want to try?  A big thank you again to Influenster for providing these products!  

Hope you're having a great Tuesday :)

  1. There are so many cool Box companies out there that offer a variety of great new products to try. This one sounds like you get a really great variety of products.

    1. Influenster is actually different than a regular box company! You review items on their site, and eventually qualify to receive the boxes like the one above. It's a free program!

  2. SS I totally agree. I bought the very same Rimmel mascara, let's say it was just for the bin, lol.

    1. I'm glad I'm not the only one who felt that way!

  3. This was my first influenster box & I was actually impressed, the mascara was actually one of my favorites, except for the fact that it isn't waterproof :(

    I always love reading other opinions of these though :)

    xoxo, SS
