Influenster Splash VoxBox Review

I recently received a box of goodies complimentary from Influenster to review. Take a look at my unboxing video below to see what I got. Underneath the video is my review on all of the products I received. If you want me to send you an invite so you can sign up and get free products yourself please leave your email in the comments section below.









Great box filled with great items! See reviews below and check past posts for some more detailed reviews. 

1.) Tree Hut's Exfoliating Mud Mask: $14.99 for 2.9oz  - I really loved this Exfoliating Mud Mask from Tree Hut. I love Charcoal masks, I feel they do a great job at cleansing pores and pulling out all the junk. This one smelled really nice and it was pretty fast to use- dried in about 10 minutes and easy to wash off with just warm water. Skin felt clean and refreshed after use! 

2.) Nature's Origin Roll On: $6.99 - I liked the lavender scent and how easy it was to roll on. Sometimes with roll on products the ball does not move easily and it is a pain to apply the amount you want but the ball moved so gracefully with this roll on. I put it on my wrists and it absorbed quickly. The scent did help me relax and stress less but I was hoping to have better quality of sleep since lavender has been known for that but so far I have not seen that while using this product. Still worth using if you like the scent and want to calm down a bit. 

3.) Mike and Ike Sour-Licious Zours: $1.39- I still prefer the regular Mike and Ike to these sour ones but these were still pretty good. They were sort of like sour patch kids where you only taste the sour at the first couple of chews and then after that they are sweet. Overall good flavors but my favorite one was the pink ones! 

4.) Maybelline SuperStay Matte Ink: $9.49 - I really love the color of the "Lover" shade. It is really a beautiful matte color and would go with just about any outfit/event you are going to. It does last on lips a long time, it does not even come off with a paper towel. That is the downfall of the product in my opinion. I love that it really lasts on lips but it was a HUGE pain to get off. The makeup remover wipes removed it a bit but also spread it around so it looks like you have monkey mouth, I had to use soap and water to get it off completely and after the hassle my lips hurt and needed chapstick. LOVE the color, but the staying power is TOO strong for a regular day for me. If I am going to an event then I would absolutely wear this though.  


5.) Not Your Mother's Clean Freak Tapioca Dry Shampoo: $7 for 7oz - This dry shampoo smells so good! I did not even need to use perfume with this. It smelled like some type of brown sugar or baked good. I felt it also did help with volume so if you are looking for a volumizing dry shampoo than this is a good one. 

6.) Sinful Colors #Pride Collection Featuring Era Istefi: $1.99 - I was skeptical at first on how this clear polish with sparkles would look on my nails but it deposited just the right amount of sparkle on my nails. Since it is clear you can not really see where it has chipped off so this could easily last on my nails about a month or so (going on week two right now) before needing to take it off. 




I really enjoyed trying all the products in this box. It was a good mix of makeup and skincare items and was happy to get a candy item. I love when Influenster sends the boxes with a variety of brands to try and complete activities for. 



If you have any further questions on any of the products listed above feel free to leave them in the comments section below and I will do my best to answer them. Once again, if you want to sign up for Influenster to get free boxes leave your email below and I will send you an invite.

The items in the box:

1.) Petstages Big Ben Kicker:This type of toy is always a favorite among the cats. They love grabbing and kicking toys like this. $6.99



2.) Petstages Britain Kitten Value Pack: This is a 3 pack of toys and the cats love all of the toys included as 2/3 have cat nip in them. Their favorite one is the toy in shape of a tea bag.  $6.99


3.) Petsport Kitty Freak: Other than messing with the feather they have not played with this toy as much as the others yet, but I enjoy how cute it is since it is a lady bug. $5.88

4.) Petsport Catnip Balls: These are little tennis balls, they are supposed to smell like catnip but all I smell is new tennis ball smell. They are cute but my cats do not seem to want to play with them so we will probably donate these to a shelter as kittens would probably love these! $5.51

Total Value: $30.52 This box had a great assortment of items. My cats enjoyed most of the items and the value is over the cost of the box so this is another great box. My cats actually do get excited when these boxes come, they are all over them and smelling them until we open them!

Maybelline 24K Nudes VoxBox Review

I recently received a box of goodies complimentary from Influenster to review. Take a look below to see what I got and my review on the products. If you want me to send you an invite so you can sign up and get free products yourself please leave your email in the comments section below.







1.) Maybelline New York The 24K Nudes Eyeshadow Palette: $9.99-

 I really like this palette. I feel like it has the perfect nude colors for any night or day look. I like that they have both shimmery and matte colors. Most of the colors are either a champagne or dark colors but I like that they did place a shimmery purple in there to make lids extra pretty.

I also like that the palette is on the smaller side, it can fit into your purse without taking up too much room. With that said, the shadows are perfect sized and are not too small for your eyeshadow brush. 

Here are before an after photos of my look: 

Before applying eyeshadow, liner, and mascara

Complete voxbox look. 


2.) Maybelline New York Eyestudio Lasting Drama Waterproof Gel Pencil- Soft Nude: $6.99 - 

I LOVE these Gel Eyeliner pencils! I got the Soft Nude shade which I do not normally use a light shade like that but I liked how it brightened up my eyes when I used it in the corners. I am going to purchase this brand as my eyeliner from now on. I typically go for crayon eyeliners but these ones are even easier to glide right on. I HATE using  regular pencil liners- they hurt my eyes when applying and I suck at pencil sharpening lol. Other colors include: Silken Turquoise, Sleek Onyx, and Polished Amethyst. Here is a photo to see the colors (photo credit: Influenster



3.) Maybelline New York The Falsies Push Up Angel Washable Mascara: $7.47 - 

If I am being honest, I hated this Mascara. My eyelashes looked too spidery and this was very easy to smudge when applying. I would not buy or use this product again. 


Overall, I was very impressed with this voxbox. I found a new favorite eyeliner product, and am excited to try out all the awesome eyeliner shades in comes in! The Palette had great colors that I typically use in my everyday look. The only miss for me was the mascara which I would not personally use or purchase again.

The items in the box:

This months theme: Fight Night

1.) Multipet Scratch Roller:This cardboard toy has jingle balls on the inside and comes with cat nip. Luke is a fan of this, especially when the catnip is placed in the holes! $6.99



2.) SPOT Fluttering Butterfly Mini Teaser Wand: This is the big hit in the box among all 3 cats. This is a fun toy for me to play along with them. They love catching the butterfly and of course love chewing and licking the feather too.  $6.18


3.) Spot Dura-Fused Leather Butterfly Cat Toy: The packaging says that cats love the smell of leather. My cats were interested in this for about a minute and have not touched it since. Maybe when they get sick of the other butterfly toy they will go for this one. $5.02


4.) Pet Greens Savory Salmon Treats: The cats always like this brand of treats. They are soft treats and of course salmon is a hit. $3.79

5.) Multipet Spring Mouse: This is another fun toy for the cats to play with. I would not say they go bonkers over it but they do like to bat it around at times. It is a spring toy with a soft pom pom ball as the head. $4.99




Total Value: $26.97 The value is a bit over the $25 cost of the box and like last month this box had a great assortment of items. Most of the toys were a huge hit and the treats are well welcomed by the cats as well. As far as their opinion of things I would say that they really loved this box.

March 2017 PetGiftBox Review & [COUPON CODE]!!

Please watch my unboxing video and then come back and read this post :)

The items in the box:

This months theme: Fight Night

1.) Safemade Dangler Catnip Boxing Glove Toy:The cats love any toy than tangles and that I can play with them with. This is the perfect sized toy for them to grab. $7.99



2.) Leap Tail Pillow Fashion Catnip Toy: All 3 of my cats love the tail on this toy! They must really be able to smell the catnip in it as they love licking it.  $6.99 



3.) Collapsible Pet Bowl: This could be used for more than just a water bowl. If you keep it open and do not collapse it it is a decent sized Tupperware to keep food or treats in. $7.99

4.) Clean as a Whistle Wipes: These are used to clean up messes and are not to be used on your pet! I am curious though, as I could not find any info online, if these are good for carpet or only on other types of floors. If you are familiar with this product please let me know! I have not tried these yet as luckily we have not had any kitty messes to clean up. $4.99

5.) Loving Pets Purrfectly Natural Freeze Dried Chicken Treats: Best item in the box, these are loved and devoured by all 3 of my cats. Even Kaci, who is a bit picky, really loves these! There is only one ingredient: chicken. These are made from 100% all natural USA farmed and raised chicken. $4.99




Total Value: $32.95 The value is a bit over the $25 cost of the box and this box had a great assortment of items. The treats were a huge hit and I would never have thought to buy and try these for the cats by myself as I did not think all 3 of them would like them. So finding treat products they enjoy is definitely a bonus!

The items in the box:

This months theme: Share the Love

1.) Bacarian Cat Toy:This is similar to a cat nip toy the difference is it has the German Valerian root & organic spelt inside the sack. All of the cats are going crazy over this and Vince and Luke have even fought over this toy. Even a week later Vince is still all over this toy. $7.99

Vince is obsessed with this toy.

2.) Valentine Bella Bowl: This is such a cute bowl. It is a small bowl that is made for food. Once I get my walk in closet cleaned out it will be the cats closet and I will put this bowl in there for their dry for them. It has a vet-recommended stainless steel interior that resists bacteria. It is also dishwasher safe. This bowl fits a Gobble Stopper if you have one of those for your dog.  $8.99 

3.) Love is in the air Bandana: Luke love's his military Bandana. This one is a bit bigger so it should fit all of my cats. I have not tried it on them yet though. $4.99

Kaci always has so much fun opening everything up.

4.) Cat'n Around Heart Cat Nip Toys: This came with fillable heart toys and also came with some catnip. The cats really like batting these around and if I put them in boxes they go nuts trying to figure out where the smell is coming from. $8.99

5.) PetGiftBox Love Bites Cat Treats: These are heart shaped tuna and cheese treats packaged exclusively for PetGiftBox. They were a little big for my cats to eat so I had to break them apart. Also, there is no expiration date on the package and I am a stickler for expiration dates when it comes to cat products so I am not keeping these much longer. $9.99

The cats were so excited for their box this month!


Total Value: $40.95 We are loving this month's box. All the toys included are big hits and I think the bowl is so cute. I wish the treats had an expiration date on them and were a bit smaller. The bandana is a bonus as Luke actually likes to wear bandanas and this will look so cute on him. Overall we are very happy with this box, I think the curation was great this month.

Review: Ozeri 5 Piece Knife and Sharpener Set with Japanese Stainless Steel Slotted Blades



I recently was sent this 5 Piece Stainless Steel Knife and Sharpener set by Ozeri!



I have been using the same kitchen knives for quite some time so it was definitely time for me to get some new ones. I was impressed by the packaging - it comes in a wooden holder with specific slots for each sized knife. I really liked how this holder lays down, opposed to many knife holders that stand up, as I do not store these on my counter so this way is much more convenient to store in the cabinet. This wooden holder also has a built in sharpener. 



I liked how comfortable these knifes were to hold. They also were great for cutting. I have used them to cut meat as well as produce and everything is so easy to cut. My only gripe with them is that, as you can see in the picture, meat does get stuck to the knife and you have to push it off. Otherwise, these made for a much easier preparation than my previous knives did.  



If you would like to purchase the pan on Amazon you can grab it for $28.95 with free prime shipping.
