Influenster: #XOVoxBox

People. Have you heard about Influenster? Its a website where you can use your social influence to earn opportunities to test great products! Its seriously so simple and actually pretty fun. All you have to do is make an account at, link up all of your social media accounts so they can see how influential your posts may be, and you're set! You can review products you've already used in order to earn 'badges' and ask/answer any questions other users have asked about products. The more you do this, the better chance you have of getting chosen to test products.

I luckily got chosen for the product testing or the 'VoxBox' as they call it for February. I received the XOVoxBox in the mail a few weeks ago and it was full of such great products that I was so excited to try! Continue reading to see what was included in the XOVoxbox and to hear my thoughts on the products I tested!

*I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes. All opinions are mine alone.*

- Colgate Express White toothpaste, toothbrush, and whitening pen. My review? It works! Slowly but surely, this stuff has whitened and brightened my teeth and the best part about it in my opinion? Little to no sensitivity!! Any time I have used any other whitening techniques my teeth end up hurting for weeks afterwards, but with these Colgate products I was given to test out, I have seen the results pain free!

- John Frieda shampoo, conditioner, and smoothing serum. My thoughts? This stuff was nice and I think it would have worked better had I had a little more. Those of you that know me know that I have a lot of hair so the travel size of these products only lasted two washes. I did notice that my hair was less frizzy after those two washes and I think a lot of that had to do with the smoothing serum. I am definitely interested in purchasing these products in bigger bottles to see if using them over time helps to control my frizz!

- A chance to earn a $25 gift card to Ebay. My thoughts? Yes please. I'll take and extra $25 any day :) Best part about this was that they gave me another opportunity to earn another $25 after I got the first one so, ya.. $50 to spend on Ebay. This shopping lover will take it!

- Tide Pods Plus Febreeze. I am a fan! I hate buying a huge container of detergent + a huge container of fabric softener + a huge box of dryer sheets... Its just a hassle to lug all of those heavy containers and all the dirty laundry that I've been avoiding for about three weeks (does this happen to anyone other than me?) to the laundromat. So these Tide Pods were heavenly. Not only do they smell divine, they are so functional. And they feel really cool in your hands and then your hands smell like them for a while after touching them which is an added bonus in my opinion. They left our clothes smelling so fresh! Buy them. You won't regret it!

- A coupon to get $25 off a $100 purchase from Land's End Clothing. I didn't end up using this... I can't really afford to spend $75 on more clothes when I already don't wear half the things in my closet. The husband would just not understand ;) But this is a super cute brand and I'm glad to have been introduced!

- A small tube of Skinfix hand cream that, after using for only one day, already improved any and all the dry patches on my skin (which was due to the dry weather here in good ole Utah).

- And my favorite perk was a free set from that came just in time for my one year anniversary/Valentines Day!

I highly suggest joining Influenster so you can reap the benefits as well!
Thanks Influenster!
