Influenster J'Adore VoxBox Review!

I'm really excited to share my thoughts on the J'adore VoxBox, thanks to Influenster today. I was provided the box for free to test out the products and share my thoughts (if I so chose to). If you'd like to be involved, check out more details here.

Red Rose Simply Indulgent Teas
For generations, members of the Red Rose Family have shared life’s special moments over the perfect cup of tea. Now, Red Rose ensures the tradition continues with a range of full-bodied and decadent black tea blends, perfect for any occasion. All the indulgence, none of the calories
This was the most delicious desert like teas I've ever tasted. I received the Creme Caramel and decaffeinated Lemon Chiffon. I've been really big on having afternoon tea and these are perfect to add into the rotation! I will mention the Caramel smelled a lot sweeter than it tasted, which wasn't necessarily a bad thing, just not what I was expecting. I also wasn't expecting to fall in love with the Lemon Chiffon (my new favorite!) either!

Kiss Looks So Natural Lashes

Made with a revolutionary technology that creates tapered ends, KISS Looks So Natural lashes blend seamlessly with natural lashes. Significantly lighter in weight than traditional lashes, the wearer can barely feel them on; 97% of women who wore these lashes felt the difference! These feathery, soft lashes are available in various styles, from natural to dramatic looks.

It's been a very long time since I tried to put lashes on. I used to be extremely good at it, too- but apparently time was not on my side. I tried putting these babies on for a fun night out last week, got too frustrated and gave up. For the few minutes they were on my lashes, I really liked how natural they looked. A trick I've learned is to cut them in half and only used the outer part as an accent. They would be great to wear every now and then for special occasions (just make sure you have the time and patience for applying!)

John Frieda Frizz Ease 3-Day Straight Flat Iron Spray
Revolutionary heat-activated formula wraps each strand to seal in longer-lasting straightness for up to 3 days* without weighing hair down. Formula, infused with Keratin, protects against heat damage and blocks frizz making hair glossy, smooth, and swinging with body.

My hair is naturally pretty straight, so I wasn't really sure if this was going to make a difference. When I do wear it straight, a once over with the straighten is usually good enough for me. I've heard good things about straightening products that have Keratin in them, and this one does. When I used it, I definitely noticed a difference. I wash my hair every other day, so I don't know about the 3 day promise, but it did work. I would suggest going with less sprays- I have really long hair and the first time I tried it, I used the higher of the suggested amount and it was too much. 
Boots Botanics Shine Away Ionic Clay Mask
Treat your skin to deep cleansing with this mineral-rich clay mask. Designed for use on normal skin, the unscented, hypo-allergenic formula absorbs excess oil and deeply cleanses skin. The oceanic clay exhibits a negative electrical charge, which helps to draw out impurities without overdrying, skin is left looking clearer whilst feeling softer and smoother. Willowbark, a key ingredient in the Boots Botanics Shine Away Ionic Clay Mask, is nature’s champion clarifier. The bark of the willow tree is a natural source of salicylic acid which helps to refine skin texture and actively target imperfections.

Using a mask is usually inconvenient for me, but I need to start using them more often. It was definitely much needed and I love that it's natural ingredients.

Hershey's Kisses Milk Chocolate
The right words don’t always come easily. And sometimes it’s impossible to say what you really mean. But give someone HERSHEY’S® KISSES® Chocolates and you’ll instantly say it all.

The Family size bag that came in the influenster box was amazing. We still had a half of a bag of our own Kisses in the apartment, so these guys came to work with me. They were a big hit. My favorite part about Kisses are they're the perfect size for a post-meal sweet. I'm not usually a big chocolate person, but if it's around, it won't last long. Having a kiss after a meal is the perfect amount of sweet without all the guilt! 

Thanks again, Influenster and all the participating products!


  1. Red Rose tea brings back memories!! I remember my parents drinking it when I was little (and we would get the figurines). Lemon Chiffon sounds delicious. The rest of the stuff looks really great - I'm very curious about the John Frieda spray since my hair needs help.

  2. oooh i want to try that john frieda frizz spray!!
