Influenster Cosmo VoxBox

Hey everyone! Today I want to talk to you about the Influenster VoxBox.
What is it you ask? Basically it's this website you can request an invite for to give honest opinions and reviews on products that you've tried. Once you earn enough points you may be one of the lucky ones to get selected to receive a box in the mail including products to try out for free! 
Yes you receive the products for free, but NO you are not being paid to give fake reviews. This website cares about HONEST ratings and reviews so companies can find ways to improve their products. You can always get selected for more than one box as long as you stay loyal to the site and continue to do what is asked of you... give reviews. If they notice you try to just get stuff for free just for free stuff then you will not qualify for boxes anymore. 

Why did I want to join Influenster? 
I wanted to join because first off I can say I can be a little bit on the shopaholic side, so I can give reviews on the products that I've tried. 
Another reason is because I notice myself always going back to the same products because I hate wasting my money on something new and end up hating it, so I guess I like to keep it safe. Influenster allows me to try products that I wouldn't have purchased otherwise! Plus, I love giving reviews and being able to help out companies and the people looking to make the purchase. 

So that being said, I was approved for the Cosmo VoxBox since I mainly give reviews on beauty products! 
Here is what I received in my box

In this post I will be sharing the product details plus give you my review!
Here we go...

1. Ghirardelli Gourmet Milk Sea Salt Escape: $2.79
The decadently rich and creamy milk chocolate in Sea Salt Escape is combined with bursts of sea salt and roasted almonds delivering an epicurean chocolate experience. Experience a moment of timeless pleasure with all natural Ghirardelli Gourmet Milk Chocolate. 

My Review:
This is the first time ever trying a sea salt chocolate. I can say it is okay. The salt is definitely random throughout a square which is okay. I think I would prefer it to be more even if you know what I mean. I do love other types of Ghirardelli chocolate but I guess I'm just not a fan of the sea salt and milk chocolate. I would like to try this in dark chocolate since I prefer that over milk. If you like sea salt, almonds and milk chocolate then I would suggest it for you. But for me personally I don't think I would go out of my way to purchase this. 

2. FriXion by Pilot Pen: $4.50 for a 3-pack/ $11.00 for an 8-pack
FriXion writes unbelievably smooth, in expressive gel like colors, and erases completely with its rubber tip. FriXion is the newest innovation from Pilot, the #1 seller of gel ink pens in America. 

My Review:
Okay, first let me give you my opinion on the way the pen looks... It looks like a boys pen that's for sure. So if myself (being a girl of course) were to go pen shopping, these ones wouldn't stand out to me because I like cute things of course lol. However, these pens do write very well and erase very well. The orange pen writes orange and the black pen writes black so that's not to hard to mess up either. I'm not exactly sure how many colors they have in this line, but if you go to school or like to color coordinate notes or anything like that then I would suggest these pens especially because they erase. I hate making mistakes and feeling like I want to start all over! So overall would I repurchase these if I really needed some pens? Yes, I would, and I would also recommend them!

3. Forever Red Eau de Parfume Exclusively at Bath & Body Works: $10.00 for .25 fl oz/7mL and $44.50 for full size
A touch of red is pure magic! Bath & Body Works introduces you to their new, most luxurious fragrance ever, as you lavishly spray on a passionate blend of pomegranate & red osmanthus with a sexy surprise of vanilla rum, for a forever enchanting way to fragrance. 

My Review:
Okay, okay. I was stoked to have this in my box to be honest! I have checked out this fragrance in Bath & Body Works a couple of times actually. My issue is that I smell a ton of candles along with everything else when I go in that place that sometimes you don't get the full experience of a certain smell. This perfume is awesome! It reminds me of something, but I honestly have no idea what it is. The mini one is perfect for your purse and when I went out, I sprayed a ton of it on myself and it didn't use up half the bottle like I thought it would. So if you want to try this baby out but not spend 40 dollars then I would suggest trying the mini. It's worth the 10 dollars and who knows, might be on sale sometime. I am normally picky about what I spray on myself because some things just give me headaches. This scent is perfect. It isn't to heavy but it lasts and just smells amazing. If you haven't tested this out then you should! I wish you can smell it through the computer ;) lol. It is seriously the perfect combination of the ingredients it listed. So overall would I recommend this perfume? Can you say HELL YEAH! :) $44.50 actually isn't that bad compared to a lot of other perfumes. This would also make a perfect gift for the holidays with its cute red bottle! This was my favorite out of the Cosmo Voxbox!!

4. Venus: $3.50-$4.50 per month for blade refills
This box included two Venus blades since ANY Venus blade refill fits ANY Venus razor handle! 

Gillette Venus Embrace
Venus Embrace blade refills provide an ultra-close shave with five blades that hug curves to get virtually every hair. Available in 4- and 8-count packages. 

Venus & Olay Razor
Venus & Olay blade refills feature Olay Moisture Bars that contain skin conditioners to help lock in moisture and with every smoothing stroke, Venus' five blades provide an ultra-close shave. Available in 3-count packages. 

My Review:
First off let me just say that I have not tried the Venus & Olay razor yet, but I will get to it!
Second, I honestly didn't know that any refill fits any handle haha! So that is good to know!!
Third, I only use Venus razors! 
I wasn't excited about getting this in my box at first because I only use Venus. But once I started using it I realized how much better their actually razors are compared to their disposables (disposables are still amazing though). I started to get lazy when it came to purchasing razors because they are so darn expensive. Now that I know that I can use that handle for any blade though, I'll definitely start buying the refills again. I've tried other razors but always end up going back to Venus. I tend to cut myself with others or they just don't shave as good so I guess you can say I am a loyal Venus fan! I would recommend it to anyone! I am sure that all the different types of refills are amazing since they seem to take their product seriously! So overall I would recommend it and repurchase the refills!
