Influenster 'The Taste' Campaign VoxBox

I was thrilled to win an Influenster VoxBox for participating in 'The Taste' campaign. Influenster is a program that provides free products in exchange for feedback and product reviews.

Unboxing 'The Taste' Influenster VoxBox

1. EBOOST in acai pomegranate, 0.25 oz

Full size cost: $28.00
Estimated retail value: $1.40

I have seen EBOOST in several venues, including subscription boxes. I usually do not consume nutritional supplements (other than an occasional multi-vitamin) or carbonated beverages, but I am curious about the taste of this product. Here is what the label says:
"Feel great, do more. Our premium formula of vitamins, minerals, and super-nutrients delivers energy to boost your workout and your life. No sugar, no artificial flavors, and only 10 calories."

 2. Garden Botanika lash primer, 0.26 oz 

Full size cost: $11.00
Retail value: $11.00

I have used lash primers in the past, so I hope that this lash primer will lengthen and thicken my lashes. Here is what the label says: 
"Garden Botanika Lash Primer makes even the skimpiest lashes look longer and fuller within minutes. Protective Carnauba Wax, Glycerin and Panthenol strengthen lashes. Mascara goes on easily, resists flaking and will not sting or irritate eyes. Does not contain fragrance, shellac, mineral oil or animal protein. Water rinseable."

3. Hawaiian Tropic silk hydration lotion sunscreen spf 30, 2 fl oz

Full size cost: $9.99
Estimated retail value: $3.33

This lotion has a pleasant tropical fragrance. I'm always happy to try products that contain SPF 30. This is a great size for traveling. Here is what the label says:
"Hawaiian tropic silk hydration sunscreen pampers your skin like no orderinary sunscreen! The breakthrough dual ribbon formula combines superior protection with luxurious, hydrating silk protein to wrap your skin in continuous moisture and help you maintain luminous skin in teh sun. Plus, it's light, tropical fragrance stimulates your senses for a completely captivating in-sun experience! Water-resistant (80 minutes). Light & non-greasy"

4. imPRESS press-on manicure in D110 lil drumr grl, 24 nail covers

Full size cost: $7.99
Retail value: $7.99

I like the idea of press-on manicures because these only take a few minutes to apply and I don't have to worry about nail polish smudging or waiting for nail polish to dry. However, I usually wear neutral nail polish, so this item will go on my swap/sell list.

5. NYC show time glitter pencil in 944 show time black, 0.0379 oz

Full size cost: $2.49
Retail value: $2.49

Black eyeliner is a product that most women have in their make-up stash. This eyeliner is unique because it is infused with glitter, vitamin C and vitamin E! Here is what the label says:
"Accentuate your eyes with this creamy, glitter-infused eyeliner pencil. Liner easily glides on to release rich color with a metallic sparkling effect. Long-wearing formula fortified with conditioning Vitamins C & E."

6. Softsoap coconut scrub bar soap, 3.9 oz

Full size cost: $1.25
Estimated retail value $1.25

This bar soap smells great. It contains crushed coconut extract, which moisturizes and exfoliates. I appreciate that this line does not include parabens.

7. Necco tropical fruit wafers, 2.02 oz

Full size cost: $1.19
Estimated retail value $1.19


These tropical fruit wafers come in coconut, passion fruit, strawberry, lime, banana and mango flavors. The tropical flavors and sweet smell were intriguing, so I gave these a try. My favorite flavor is mango and surprisingly, my least favorite flavor is lime. These tropical wafers are a big improvement from the original Necco wafers.


Summary:

Total estimated retail value: $28.65

Body = 2
Edible = 2
Make-up = 3
