#TLCVoxBox from Influenster

I have been a member of  Influenster since October and it has been a lot of fun! For those of you who aren't familiar with the site, its basically a huge survey site for companies. You write product reviews, answer other members questions about products....its a pretty cool way to get your voice heard. You have an impact score that rises with each activity you do (it also rises by having social media linked to your account), and the higher your score, the more likely you are to qualify for a VoxBox. The VoxBoxes are the best part of Influenster because that's where you get really awesome samples! And receiving a VoxBox is like getting a present in the mail, it just makes your day a little more merry.

I wanted to share with you my most recent VoxBox, which is the TLC VoxBox. It was geared towards moms, so I got things that are relevant to my life.  In this box there was:

*Ivory Soap
*Neo to Go
*Shell Fuel Rewards Card
*Voucher for 1 Free Breyers Gelato
*Puffs to Go Tissues
*Avon Anew Reversalist Wrinkle Smoother

The things I enjoyed the most from this VoxBox: the Ivory soap, Neo to Go, Puffs pack and the Breyers gelato.

I grew up using Ivory soap, and it was nice to see that, aside from its packaging, it hasn't changed. I love Neo to Go because my children actually let me use it on them when they get hurt! They are so phobic about medicines, so this is a huge deal. And Neosporin in general is a good thing to have in your first aid kit. The Puffs pack reminds me of the tissue packs my grandma always used to carry around with her. I find myself carrying tissue packs with me in my car and my purse now that I'm a mom, and Puffs are nice because they are soft and don't rub our noses raw with constant use. I guess these things are all my favorites because I have sentimental attachments to a lot of them and they are familiar to me. But the Breyers gelato is new, and boy is it amazing! The Raspberry Cheesecake is my favorite flavor. I thought the Triple Chocolate one was really sweet (my mother in law had some in her freezer, what great timing!).

Things I enjoyed least in this VoxBox: the Shell Fuel Rewards card and Avon Anew Wrinkle Smoother.

The Shell card is a nice idea, I love me a good rewards/loyalty card. But this one wasn't fantastic for me because I don't go to Shell stations for my gas. I'm not sure if its like this around the rest of the country, but Shell has some of the highest gas prices in my town (almost beating Chevron for the highest). They're hovering at around $4.05 a gallon right now, and I just can't afford to pay that. The rewards card can be linked to your credit cards, debit card, and certain store loyalty cards, which is nice. But again, I don't get my gas there, so there isn't much incentive for me to do so.

As for Avon, I have nothing against the product other than I don't need it right now. At thirty years old, I am at that point where wrinkles should be appearing on my face. But so far *knock on wood* I have been so lucky that I don't have any. But even though I don't need it, I still played with it :) Its a very smooth cream to powder, and its translucent. I don't have much experience with makeup, but I like this product. It felt really soft and gave my face just a little smoothing out (even though there aren't any wrinkles for it to blur, which is what its meant for).
