Influenster "Cosmo" VoxBox

What is Influenster? Influenster is a website where you sign up and make a profile--then you have to unlock all these badges by filling out surveys that reflects your lifestyle. According to that information they'll pick members to qualify for that month's voxbox. The boxes are absolutely free and they'll send you different products for you to test out and do a review on.

I qualified for the month of October's "Cosmo" VoxBox which includes skincare, bath and body.

It includes:
Vitabath Fragrance Collection in Dreamy Pink Frosting (Retail Price=$9.99) - All of the products in Vitabath's newest collection of sulfate and paraban free body washes boast a moisturizing formula that leaves skin feeling clean, refreshed and vibrant. Featuring a nourishing blend of Vitamins A, B3, B5, C and E, as well as an antioxidant superfruit blend, the Fragrance Collection moisturizes and revives skin with its rich, luxurious lather.

Refillable Venus ProSkin MoistureRich Razor (with two replacement cartridges) (Retail price=$9.79, four replacement cartridges=$11.29, six replacement cartridges=$16.81) - Venus ProSkin MoistureRich Razor has shave gel bars enhanced with a triple blend of body butters, which create a layer of protection for your skin with every stroke. Plus, it features the trusted Venus three-blade technology for an ultra-close shave; our rounded, pivoting head for those hard-to-reach places; and an ergonomic handle for great control in wet, soapy environments.

Proactiv 3-Step System (30-day system=$19.95)
Renewing Cleanser: This medicated Renewing Cleanser is made with new, exclusive micro-crystal benzoyl peroxide, featuring smaller, finer particles designed to quickly penetrate pores to start killing acne-causing bacteria on contact. Tiny exfoliating beads gently remove dirt, excess oil and dead skin cells to help keep pores from clogging.

Revitalizing Toner: This refreshing, alcohol-free toner helps remove impurities and excess oil so your skin looks and feels clean, soft and refreshed--not tight and dried out. Soothing botanical agents gently balance your skin tone.

Repairing Treatment: The repairing treatment is a feather-light medicated lotion that gets deep into blogged pores faster but is designed to be gentler on the skin. It's an oil-free formula that's safe for your entire face.

The Vitabath "Dreamy Pink Frosting" bath wash was a huge "no-go" for me. I opened the bottle to smell it and it smells like those cheap cupcakes/cakes frosting. I still wanted to test it out because it's sulfate and paraban free and has all these vitamins and antioxidants in it--so I tried it yesterday and just as I expected--I hate it! I am very sensitive to smell--I can't stand anything too perfumey, sweet, strong, etc. Of course after I used the body wash I kept smelling the sweet frosting off my body and I was getting sick off it. And also I don't like to use anything on my body that smells like food--I know some people love it but that's not me. 

I've been using Venus' razors for awhile now and I love it. I love their moisture gel bars--I use shaving gel with it and it keeps my skin so smooth, soft and moisturized. I use the one with the 5 blades because it feels like it gets closer to the skin. Before Venus I use to use men's mach 3 razor because it did a better job but that's before Venus came out. The one I use does the same job as the mach 3 but even better because of those moisture gel bars. I will continue to use mine so the one I received in this box will be going to my sister. 

Proactiv 3-step skincare system….hmmmmmm yeah it definitely don't work with my skin type. I've tried this several times, years ago but it never helped--instead it made me break out even more and irritated my skin. I don't recommend this to anyone with sensitive skin but if you have normal/combination it'll probably work better with your skin. I've heard it worked for some people so you never know until you try it. 

That's it guys. If you haven't signed up go check it out. You might qualify for the next voxbox. :)
