#badbloggerproblems

Just sitting here, remembering to write a post for the first time in almost a week.. #badbloggerproblems.

So my excuses?
Friday Five was supposed to post BUT my internet was down and I wasn't trudging to the library on a Friday for the tech centre to fix my internet (they never fix it anyways..) so I did write the post, it just wasn't posted. Boo you whore!

Monday.. well. It was a Monday. So that's excuse enough, right?

This weekend was.. well.. see for yourself.

Toads Place. That is all. Anyone know of my little froggy friend?

Anyways, me being all college kid and all, I received the #VarsityVoxBox from Influenster.
I propped it up on my laptop, so the AXO sticker isn't included, obvs..

The VoxBox came with samples of Clearasil Daily Clear Refreshing Superfruit Wash, Airheads Xtremes Bites, Kiss Nail Dress, NYC New York Color Big Bold Plumping & Shine Lip Gloss, and Tide Pods.

Clearasil Daily Clear Refreshing Superfruit Wash:I liked the sample, and it smelt really great but I have sensitive skin and using it terrified me. After using it, my face felt truly cleansed, although I did miss the exfoliating beads from my usual face wash. At $6.49, I'd probably buy it just for the clean feeling and radiant skin.

Airheads Xtremes Bites:When I opened the box and saw this, I was really excited because my favorite thing in the world is sour straws. But after having a few, the Airheads aren't that sour, and more sweet. Sure, it was nice, but it was kind of an unnecessary candy that I wouldn't go out of my way to pick up.

Kiss Nail Dress:I was so disappointed when I saw these in the package, not because I wouldn't use nail strips, but because the print was just so freakin tacky. Like, I don't want zebra nails, I'm sorry. On top of that, I don't have nails so I didn't even try these, but they're just not cute at all. Although nail strips are easier to apply and at $6.99 are much cheaper than a manicure, they only last about a week tops while good manicures last two to three weeks. So, I'd skip these strips and go to the nail salon instead.

NYC New York Color Big Bold Plumping & Shine Lip Gloss:I'm not a huge lip gloss fan, and I'd rather grab a tube of chapstick than some sticky lipgloss, but I tried this out for the sake of the blog post, and I noticed a burning sensation (the plumping at work). It stayed on for a relatively long time, and at $3.99, it was a pretty good deal.

Tide Pods:I use Tide Pods for washing my clothes at college, just cause it's easy and hey i'm lazy and don't know how to do my laundry, so yeah. But I really really like them and it makes doing laundry a million times easier. The Pods are a 3 in 1 detergent that have detergent, plus a stain fighter and brightener all in one little packet. I usually buy a huge pack from Target, and I recommend it entirely.

So there you have it. A glimpse into the life of a college kid. They should have included some sample shots for us to try too, cause we all know that's what college really is anyways..

I received these products complimentary from Influenster for the purpose of testing and reviewing them.

  2. I got this voxbox too! I have to say, my nail strips are worse than yours. Not only zebra, but fluorescent orange and pink with jewels. No thanks!

  3. I need to try the Tide pods! I wouldn't use the strips either although I am liking the idea of the plumper. Fun mail at least!

  9. It was a little disappointing. The last box box I had was a lot better in comparison. I hate the print on my nail strips. They look like some sort of elementary school art project. My favorite part of the whole thing is the tide pods.
