Influenster Maple VoxBox 2013

I received an Influenster box, the Canadian "Maple VoxBox" edition, a while back. This box offered a variety of things for me to try!




Ice Breakers Duo - In Raspberry Flavour - I usually prefer chewing gum over eating mints...but the Ice Breakers Duo has won me over! I love that you get the yummy raspberry flavour and the blast of minty freshness that actually lasts as well!

Broadway Nails imPRESS Press-on Manicure - These were really different and new to me as I usually like to stick to my solid neutrals or dark nail polishes. I loved the design that they sent me. It is a super sexy design; it has a floral and lace-looking pattern on top a nice mauvey pink shade underneath. I loved how fast the application process is with this. I was in a hurry and did not have time to do my nails so I made use out of these bad boys. All you have to do is find the right size, which wasn't hard, rip the back layer to reveal the sticky part, and then you just press 'em onto your real nails! Easy peasy! I haven't experienced any problems with these guys just yet! I will let you know how they hold up and how the removal process is in future posts!

NYC New York Color Big Bold Plumping & Shine Lip Gloss - I acutally really like this lip gloss! It's a nice pink that is not too over the top. The tube is quite large... but since this is quite a natural, everyday shade, I can see myself using quite a bit of it up.

NYC New York Color Big Bold Curl Mascara - I have not got around to using this yet since I have about 4 mascaras opened at the moment, but to tell you the truth, I am a bit reluctant! I have very sparse lashes so the big size of the want really intimidates me!

Skinny Cow Dreamy Clusters - The Dreamy Clusters were surprisingly really good! I had one when I felt a slight chocolate craving coming on, and this totally satisfied my craving The best thing I like about this is that it does not taste like a diet treat, and that because it only comes with about 5 pieces (which can be a lot since one usually does the trick) you don't end up feeling too guilty if you finish the whole bag.

Skinny Cow Heavenly Crisp Milk Chocolate - Unfortunately, these were not as great as their counterpart. This really tasted like a diet treat. It's not something I would crave or say, look forward to after a meal if I had to have a guilt-free dessert. This is very light, and the chocolate coating is not the best. The wafer inside is kind of bland as well. Overall, I would not purchase this.

Montagne Jeunesse: Dead Sea Mud Spa Masque - I haven't tried this yet but will report back as soon as I do! I am excited though because I have oily acne-prone skin and mud sounds really great for it. ;)

They also gave us two $1.00 off coupons to use for other N.Y.C products, which is great because I have never tried a lot from this brand!
