Influenster VoxBox review!

I received items in this post free, for review. 
I am writing this from my iPad and will try and upload pictures later. For some reason there's a problem right now.

 In my VoxBox, I received a Dr.scholls for her high heel inserts, Suave Professionals Moroccan oil styling gel, Goody tanglefix, Olay fresh effects shine shine go away, and NYC .

I will go down the list starting from the most favored things, to things I would not be repurchasing. 
First thing I really liked and can see myself repurchasing is the Dr.Scholls high heel inserts. 
These aren't my first pair of inserts from Dr.Scholls. Back in the day when I was working 18 hours a day, these saved my feet! Now on these particular pair, I use them for when I am wearing heels and it really helps take the pressure off my feet. I find that they don't slip and slid like some cheaply made inserts that I have tried. 
I wouldn't say these didn't make my feet hurt at all, because come on, your still walking on a heel, but it definitely made it more bearable and more comfortable. I would repurchase for sure. 

The next item on the favorable list was the Suave Moroccan oil. I have tried many different oils for the hair, even though, my scalp is naturally oily. I find that with this oil, it does the job and I really like how it's not too heavy for my fine-ish hair.  I also use it for my daughters curly hair and it does wonders. I also really like the smell and being pregnant (yup, I'm pregnant), the smell doesn't nauseated me which is crazy, because everything now is very nauseatingly to me. From my everyday perfumes, to simple smells like oil. This oil is a keeper and I doubt it will be used up anytime soon. 

The next product is the a NYC Multi-flects sparkle eye dust in color 882. With this particular product the first thing I loved was the color of it. I actually thought it was a cream before I opened it.   The color is a smokey purple brown. The consistency is a very fine light powder that reminds me much of pigments, but a lot more light in weight and not as oily, if that's the word.  I hated the opening since it's so easy to spill, so I doubt I will repurchase but the color alone makes my green eyes sparkle. 

The Olay Fresh effects was actually, I felt, catered to my pregnant skin. Since becoming pregnant, my skin has gone haywire, making way too much oil around my hairline and T-zone, so this product I felt was a big helper. It made my skin feel fresh and clean, however I did experience a couple more breakout in my neck area when I hadn't had those before but I can't entirely blame the cleanser since like I mentioned before, my skin is crazy right now. This is a iffy repurchase for me since I can't see a difference in skin tone, but since it says shine reducer, it did make a difference in my skins shininess, so it's so-so for me. 

The last product I am reviewing is the Goody tangle fix brush.  I thought this would be a miracle worker on my daughters hair. Her hair gets tangled fast and I have to brush it out every single day, or it's hell the next day. This brush was horrible for her!! 
I'm going to start off by saying this was my experience and it might be different for different hair types. 
I start with small sections of her hair, working my way up from the ends to the roots. 
I hold her hair so as not to pull it when I am brushing it because I find this helps with the pulling and pain for her. The bristles are not rounded and cause me pain when it hits the skin, so I doubt it felt pleasant on her scalp thus I avoided brushing hard against her scalp area. The bristles are painful. 
It's also was pain free. I was very gentle and still she was saying ouch and oweee. She is a trooper when it comes to pain (I swear she's always been so tough) and it was still painful for her. 
DEFINITELY NOT A REPURCHASE. I doubt we will even use this one. 
The only good things about it were that it is plastic so it can be washed of dust and hair product and the fact that it fits so perfectly in your hand other than that, no good for me. 

All in all. This VoxBox was really nice and I enjoyed reviewing them. Thank you Influenster!!

I love palettes, I'm not going to lie. If you have seen my latest haul, you know what I'm talking about.
The convenience of having coordinated colors together instead of having to buy the shades, one by one, open each individual eyeshadow, one by one, to get the look you want, all in order to create the look your going for, especially if your in a hurry, is a pain.
There's something about having everything you need in this palette.
It offers a variety of neutral colors, brighter colors, includes blushes, highlighters, eyeliner/creme eyeshadow bases and of course, lipglossees!
