I always get a little excited when I see I have an email from Influenster. Even though I don’t always love all the things they send me, getting a free mystery box in the mail is pretty legit.
This time around, I was selected for the Surf’s Up Voxbox. Considering I’m not a surfer, I wasn’t sure what to think about this. Turns out, Surf’s Up is just more of a catchy name than anything else… really the only thing slightly related to the beach or water was some after-sun lotion.
Influenster Surf’s Up Voxbox
Covergirl Bombshell Curvaceous by Lashblast Mascara – This has two ends – step one gives you volumizing, step two adds drama. I really like how this separates the lashes and there are absolutely no clumps! Also, its very lightweight and weightless, I swatched it on only one eye, and I can’t tell which eye has the mascara. (Buy it)
Hawaiian Tropic After Sun Hydrating Lotion – I’ve mentioned it before, but I really don’t spend much time in the direct sun, and when I do I lather on the SPF. Thus, this product is useless to me for its original purpose. Also, the last time I used Hawaiian Tropic sunscreen I broke out in a rash, so I sampled a tiny bit of this. The scent smells delicious, very tropical and fruity. The texture is nice, and has a slight cooling sensation. (Buy it)
Jamba Juice All Natural Smoothie Kit Coupon – I haven’t redeemed this yet (oops) but I’m excited to. I love smoothies in the summer, and this seems super convenient! (Buy it)
First Aid Shot Therapy – I’m not sure I would need something like this, to be honest. I could see migraine sufferers benefitting from this (its a combination of caffeine and pain reliever) but otherwise my headaches are generally pretty mild. I’ll have Dave give it a try the next time he has a bad headache though. (Buy it)
Sinful Colors Nail Polish in Fire Red – Ugh, I am so sick of receiving this color! I like Sinful Colors (I mean, its $2 a bottle at Target), but I already own 4 dupes of this color and its so not summery. Boohoo. (Buy it)
Looks nice! I usually always get pink nailpolishes, the last one i received was “pure ice NP” and would also love it if they had more variety!
Yeah, kind of a bummer to get the same colors over and over but I suppose its luck of the draw. Oh well!
I love influenster boxes!
Me too! :)
This box sounds awesome! I got the Vow VoxBox last month and it was great!
Oh I’ve seen that box around too, looked like another good one!
Random but when I end up with cheap dupes of nail polish I already own, I use them in craft projects. Got anything that needs to be painted red? :P
Oh that’s an interesting idea! I don’t think I do, but maybe I’ll come up with something!
Looks like you got some fun goodies! Thanks for sharing.
looks like a fab box!
Love the nail polish!
What fun goodies!
Looks like a cute box – but you’re right – that nail polish isn’t summer. It will be perfect for fall though!
Totally agree with that, Kendall!
so many boxes in blogland lately, i want them all!
Haha, I won’t lie, they’re pretty fun!
I got the green nail polish and honestly, I didn’t like the mascara! It felt so clumpy and I felt awkward with the size of the handle!
The size of the handle was a bit strange, but I didn’t find it clumpy! I’ve used it two days in a row now, maybe it will get worse after being exposed to air longer.
I always like the influenster boxes! I would be annoyed with FOUR of the same plain ol’ red color too though.
Ha yeah, it seems like its always a go-to color… which unfortunately means I have too many of them! Oh well.
Bummer! Sounds like the box was a bit of a bust. Love those smoothies though!
Not all bad, but definitely excited to try the smoothies!
You got some good swag girl! Im not the biggest fan of red nail colour if Im honest but everything else is great!
Yeah, this color especially is much more of a fall color, but agreed about everything else! :)
I love Influenster! That shot thing is pretty interesting and I love that color polish!
this voxbox looks BOMB.
Hmm I may have to sign up for this :) Thanks for sharing girl! So glad I found you through Grow Your Blog!
I definitely would! Free is a great price :)
Yeah red is one of those shades you don’t need many of, especially in the summer lol.
Haha, yeah definitely not. Oh well!
I’ve never had an influenster box – i have signed up though and finished a few bits. must get back on it!
Definitely do, they’re fun!
i love that mascara :) shame not everything worked for you, but I bet getting it sent in the mail is pretty exciting :)
Totally is, it fun mail even if everything isn’t a perfect fit!
i just joined influenster about a month ago and can’t wait to get a box! even if you don’t love everything, it’s free product to try out, right? can’t go wrong with that! :)
Exactly, Betsy! Hope your first voxbox is awesome!
Love your pictures….. I would love for you to visit my site. http://www.clairewilsononline.com :)
Very cool box. That shot is interesting. I used to get really bad headaches. That probably would have come in handy!
Thanks, Cam! Definitely worth a shot if you ever have a bad headache!
You got some great products in this VoxBox! I love the color of that nail polish. And you will love those smoothies – they’re delicious.
I can’t wait to try them! Thanks, Carly!
Love the way the lotion bottle looks haha :) That shot therapy reminds me of cough syrup, which is just gross!
Oh no, sounds awful!
It’s interesting what colors and things that they give you for a ‘surf’s up’ box.
haha yeah, not the most summery or beachy colors in the world. oh well!
I’ve been wanting to try that mascara out for a while! You got a great box!
I’ve been pleased with it so far! Thanks, Jess!
I really need to get better at doing their surveys so I can actually get a box one day. I just wish they had an app. It would make it so much easier!
i feel like an app is in the works… or something? they just redid their entire website and its confusing and overwhelming now so i’m not sure what to think about that one. :/
Mmm.. Jamba Juice!
Totally with you on the red polish thing! Influenster sent me a bottle of Sally Hansen’s “Red my Lips” twice – and I’m thinking.. what girl doesn’t already have like 9 bottles of red polish? Ha! Free stuff is free stuff, I suppose! Love your blog!
Ugh, isn’t that so disappointing? I’m glad its free, but its nice to try new colors! Thanks for stopping by, Mali! :)
