Influenster Violet Voxbox

A few months ago, I found out that I had been approved to receive the Violet Voxbox from Influenster.

I haven't posted about Influenster before, but for maybe about a year now I've been a member. Basically you get selected based on demographics to receive items to test and review. I hadn't received a box in a while, and I was excited to get what they said was their box for "beauty queens."

Well, it came in the mail last week, and I have to say, I was pretty disappointed. As a "beauty queen" box, I thought it failed miserably. I've received makeup products before in my Voxboxes, and there wasn't one face, eye, or lip product in this box. There was nail polish, but even that disappointed me. Here's what I got:

Goody Athletique Headband

A headband for exercising. Nothing exciting. Nothing I'm that interested in.

Sally Hansen Triple Shine Nail Polish

Normally, I'd be totally happy with nail polish, but mine came in the color Play Koi. Not really a color I'm excited about, and others I saw received completely beautiful colors. I'll probably wear it once (because that's how I do) but I'm not dying to get it on my nails.

Soyjoy Banana

I'm not excited about the banana flavoring, but I'll give it a try. I've never had a Soyjoy, so I am interested in trying it. The banana flavor just doesn't inspire me.

Goody Quikstyle

I remember one of my favorite Youtubers talking about this brush a while back, and I was interested to see what I thought. This is the only item I've tried, and while I think it actually does help my hair dry faster, it hurts! My scalp is sensitive, and this brush has no give to it, so it's actually painful to brush the hair on my actual head with it. The other thing is that my hair is very particular, so if I don't get my curling product into it while it's still pretty wet, it won't curl well. The point of this product is something that I don't want unless I'm wearing my hair natural, which rarely ever happens.

I'll report back once I actually try some of the other things, but I think Influenster totally missed the boat with this box. It seems like a weird assortment of items, and I'm not genuinely excited about one thing.
