Oasis VoxBox Review
After using Influenster for just over a month, I am so excited to share my very first VoxBox!
Influenster is a web service where users can review products. The idea is to allow bloggers, vloggers, and influencers to get and try products for their review and content on their platform. It’s free to sign up and start reviewing! Users interact with products, and it puts them in a pool to be selected to receive a VoxBox, with is a box filled with complementary products to try and review.
I was lucky enough to be selected for the Oasis VoxBox in July. This box was filled with snack items and beauty products! (Doesn’t that sound like a box for me?)
**Note: All the products in this review were sent to me complimentary from Influenster in exchange for testing and review. All opinions of these products are my own.
In this box, I received a number of items including:
- Welch’s Fruit Roll Fruit Snack
- ALOHA Protein bar in PB & J
- Evolution Fresh Coupon
- Eva NYC Mane Magic 10-in-1 Primer
- COVERGIRL Vitalist Healthy Elixir Foundation
- Vera Wang Embrace samples
Let’s get on to first impressions, testing, and reviews!
Welch’s Fruit Roll Snack
This product comes in three flavors, berry, strawberry, and tropical punch. My first impression of the product was that it was similar to a fruit roll up that I recalled eating in my elementary school days.
The flavors pretty much carried the fruit snack taste, in various berry and tropical flavors. I think these fruit snacks are great to carry when you’re on the go. They easily fit in a lunchbox or purse to take along. Welch’s makes a pretty good fruit snack, and if I had the choice I’d probably consider these rolls in my choice.
ALOHA Protein Bar
The bar I was sent was PB&J flavored. It’s a protein bar that says it has 14g of protein in one bar.
I took this bar as a snack to school, hoping it would be a healthy alternative to buying a snack somewhere near campus.
I’ve tried many protein bars from Cliff bars to Quest bars, and I have to say this one was pretty good. Some protein bars has icky aftertastes that linger in your mouth after you’ve finished, and this one did not have one.
It also tasted like a peanut butter and jelly sandwich, without the mess. There were no gooey middle parts with jelly, or anything like that, it was small bursts of flavor as you ate the bar.
I really liked this bar, and I would definitely consider repurchasing or trying new flavors in the future!
Eva NYC Mane Magic
This product comes in a small spray bottle. It say is is supposed to detangle, nourish, strengthen, soften, cuts down drying time, adds shine, reduces frizz and protects hair from damage. The product has Argan oil and sunflower seed oil. I sprayed this on damp hair and tried it air drying and with a hair dryer.
My hair doesn’t have too much of an issue with frizz or tangling, so I can’t say for sure if this product did help with that. I do think the oils were good for my hair and I’m always looking for something that can strengthen it while I’m trying to grow it out.
I felt this product gave my hair a little extra shine and kept it smooth after spraying and drying.
COVERGIRL Vitalist Healthy Elixir Foundation
I had to select my skin tone for this product for which one matched me the best. The shade I recived was in Natural Beige. The tone doesn’t really match my skin tone without mixing a little bit of a lighter foundation into it, it looks off on my skin. I can however test the formula and wear of the product and give my thoughts.
My first impression of the product was the scent. It has a very strong scent that reminds me of something tropical. I don’t mind the scent, but I know for some people it can be a bit of a deal breaker.
The formula of the product is good. It has a very heavy coverage if that’s what you’re looking for. I saw people say this foundation oxidizes on the skin, however I didn’t find that issue. I don’t know if it was because the shade was already off for my skin, but I didn’t notice a color change. The formula also has Vitamin E, and I felt it soften my skin during and after wear.
The product also removes fairly easily, which I find important for a foundation. I want it to stay on the whole day, but I also want to remove it easily at night.
Vera Wang Embrace Fine Fragrance
I recieved to perfume samples from Vera Wang Embrace. They were in the scents Periwinkle and Iris, and Rosebuds and Vanilla.
Periwinkle and Iris- This scent had a strong floral scent. It reminded me strongly of a heavy perfume. It wasn’t my personal favorite, because I am very picky with scents, but it would be good for someone who does like a very strong fragrance scent.
Rosebuds and Vanilla- I liked this one a lot more. It falls more in the range of the scents I like to wear. Out of the two it was the one I could see myself wearing more. It has a light floral scent with the warm undertone of the vanilla. It definitely appealed to me more, and I could see wearing it for an extended period of time.
This box was a good surprise to receive in the summer. With plenty of snacks to try, and beauty products to try, I’m happy this box gave me the chance to try some new brands. I’ve been loyal to a couple of these brands in the past, and have strayed over new products over the years. I’m happy I got to try these and look forward to using them and trying them again in the future! xo
