You Should Check out !!

I am a big fan of Influenster!  It's a program where you sign up and unlock badges to help you with chances of getting one of their VoxBox.  When I say unlock badges, they have many lifestyle badges that you click on and answer questions of different types of lifestyles....may it be  being a new mother...... going to college...... having a pet such as a dog or cat ..... or being a baby boomer!  The more badges you can unlock....the better chances you have at getting one of their sponsored VoxBox!  

One thing I have noticed that really helps here is being able to promote the products you receive in your VoxBox.  Which means having different social medias are great for doing this!  I have a YouTube channel, I submit blog posts, I tweet about it, and share pictures on Instagram and Pinterest!

I was extremely excited to get my very first VoxBox, The Naturals VoxBox, that have many natural products to use around the home, for your health, and also for your personal use.  Check out some of my previous posts here on my blog about these products that I have received in the Naturals VoxBox!

And.....I just got another sponsored VoxBox that I just got today!  I am so excited to get chosen again, and will be submitting reviews soon on my new VoxBox!  So stay tune!

In the meantime, if you are interested in checking out Influenster, just log onto their website and get started unlocking those badges!  The more badges you can unlock the better chance you have at getting your VoxBox!  So go to: and check it out!

EBOOST - Influenster Naturals VoxBox

I was pleasantly happy to receive EBOOST in my Naturals VoxBox from Influenster.  I have never tried this product before.  

"EBOOST will boost your mood, focus, and immunity with natural ingredients and no crash,  As a shot or an easy-to-mix powder and in four flavors, you'll feel great weather you choose Orange, Pink Lemonade, Acai Pomegranate, or Super Berry."

I had waited for a while before trying this.  So this morning I had the most opportune time to try it out.  I deal with some conditions that I take medications that make me really tired and also lowers my immune system.  This morning I was having a really hard time.  I was overly tired, no energy and just felt like going back to bed after being up for a while.  After my bath, if I'm feeling like this, usually does my in for the day.  Just the simple job of getting dressed is all that I can do at times that does me in for the rest of the day.  This morning was no different.  But then today my husband wanted for us to go out for lunch and I didn't want to say no because of the way I was feeling.  After getting out of my bath I decided this was the perfect time to take EBOOST, because I really needed something to help me.  I mixed it up and drank it before getting dressed.  By the time I got dressed, dried my hair and put on my makeup, I felt totally different.  I felt good, I had energy and ended up heading out the door for lunch with my husband.  What I really like about EBOOST is that it is all natural.  I was worried at first about the caffeine from the green tea, because I shouldn't have caffeine, but didn't feel the effects that caffeine usually has on my heart racing!  EBOOST is packed with vitamins, minerals and super-nutrients that deliver a boost of energy and immunity.  Their packets have no sugar, artificial flavors.  I liked the flavor.  At first I didn't mix it right.  You are supposed to put the packet in a class and pour in cold water.  I poured the packet into the water and it left it foamy on the top, but it soon disparate.  It kind of reminded me of Tang.....what we had as kids.  But much more healthier for you.  This is something that I would most definitely buy.  Thanks Influenster for including this in my Naturals VoxBox!

Nectresse - Influenster Naturals VoxBox

One thing that I am not a big fan on is sweeteners, natural or artificial  other than sugar.  Mind you I am not a big sugar eater either.  I am always willing to try something new, especially if it's natural.

Nectresse was another item that was included in the Naturals VoxBox for review.  Nectresse is a sweetener that claims to taste like sugar but with zero calories per serving.  It's 100% all natural and is made primarily from monk fruit, combined with other natural sweeteners.

I tried it and to be truthful....I didn't like it.  I have a hard time with these types of sweeteners because they don't taste like sugar.  I use a little bit of sugar in my tea I have in the morning, and tried Nectresse in it instead.  And I have to admit, I don't think I'd change over to substituting Nectresse for sugar.  I just did not like the taste.  It seemed to have left an aftertaste in my mouth.  It would be go for someone who couldn't use sugar or shouldn't have it.  This is just my personal thoughts on it.  As far as baking with it, I'm not a baker.  I don't make sweets, like cookies, cakes or pies of that matter, so maybe the taste of Nectresse wouldn't be so bad.  Anyways these are just my person thoughts.  I appreciate that I was given the chance to receive and review this product in my Naturals VoxBox.

CleanWell Individual Hand Sanitizing Wipes - Influenster Naturals VoxBox

CleanWell Individual wipes clean up messes and kill germs with all natural ingredients that are easy on the earth. Their mild ingredients are great for hands and face, and the one-use packet is ideal for all your on-the-go activities!

After eating a meal and my hands being sticky, I used the hand sanitizing wipes.  The wipes have a nice texture to them.  They had a very nice citrus smell and they made my hands feel like it moisturized them somewhat.  One suggestion for the wipe like this since they are natural is to make sure that the wipes is biodegradable and to package them in something other than a foil pouch.  Other than that I really liked these wipes!  Also what else I liked about these wipes is that they were alcohol free!  Sometimes when I use hand wipes that have alcohol in it is if I have a cut on my hand or finger, the alcohol really stings.  Very pleased with these wipes.

GEODEO - Influenster Naturals VoxBox

GEODEO - Island scent Natural Deodorant Plus Detox Complex is a naturally-derived, bearkthrough eco-technology, specially formulated to be safe for your body and your world.  Rach a new level of purity, keeping you fresh for 24-hours odor protection.

I was really looking forward to using this natural deodorant.  The scent is really refreshing and it felt very nice using it.  I was really excited to get a natural deodorant since I haven't used any kind of deodorant in the past several years.  I use crutches and my underarms are sensitive.  I don't sweat a lot and I am really hesitant on using any kind of chemicals that they put in regular deodorants anymore.  Any kind of chemical is absorbed into your body and also they tend to make me breakout in deodorants.  I have used this for a few weeks now and am very happy with the results.  It is very easy on my sensitive skin and would most definitely be purchasing this for myself in the future.  I was very thankful for receiving this in my Naturals VoxBox from Influenster!

Parissa Wax Strips from Influenster Naturals VoxBox

I have never used any wax strips before.  I have gone and had it done at a salon, but never used any on myself.  Waxing at a salon can be pretty expensive and so it was really neat to get Parissa Wax Strips in my Naturals VoxBox from Influenster.  The strips are clear so it was easy to see where to put them and if they were covering the area correctly.  I had used them on my face, mainly on my chin and also above my lip.  I was a little reluctant at first to use them, but overcame my fear and used them. I did not use them on my bikini area since I really don't have a need to wax that area.  What a really liked about this product too besides it being natural, was that it came with oil that helped to remove the wax.  I was pleasantly surprised and happy with this product!
