Influenster #JadoreVoxBox Review

Influenster #JadoreVoxBox Review- ProductReviewMom.com
Disclosure- I received these products free for my honest opinions and was not compensated.

I want to start this post off by saying I was disappointed in this Valentine's Day Influenster #JadoreVoxBox and that's why I was in no hurry to write up my reviews on the products I've received.

This box was sitting in my rental office for over two weeks before they alerted me that I had a package and quite frankly, this box could've stayed there longer.












Here is what I got and my reviews:

Influenster #JadoreVoxBox Review- Red Rose Tea Creme Caramel

Red Rose Simply Indulgent Teas: $4.49 for carton of 20 tea bags-  I took a couple of packs of Creme Caramel tea to have at work to go along with my breakfast.  I love caramel so I thought I would be pleased with the flavor, but it fell flat for me.  I had a small cup of water and added my two tea bags and the flavor was just not strong enough.  The caramel taste was weak, but I will say the aroma was strong.  Disappointing because I had high expectations for this tea.  I haven't tried the lemon flavor yet but I hope that one is good.




Influenster #JadoreVoxBox Review- Botanics Ionic Clay Mask


Boots Botanics Shine Away Ionic Clay Mask: $9.39- This mask was just ok to me.  My apartment was hot due to the warm weather we were currently having here in Atlanta and the clay mask started liquifying and I didn't know it.  I squeezed the tube to get the clay out and it squirted all over my sink and bathroom counter- what a mess!  After I cleaned all that up, I added the mask to my face and allowed it to dry.  Within 5 mins the mask was completely dried and ready to be washed off.  I washed it off and my face felt soft but looked very dry.  It could have been because my clay mask melted in the tube but who knows, I still wasn't impressed.



Influenster #JadoreVoxBox Review- KISS Lashes

KISS Looks So Natural Lashes: $3.99- As much as I wear makeup, I have never worn false eyelashes before.  I prefer just using mascara to enhance my lashes.  It was hard putting on the KISS lashes by using my tweezers and hands.  I don't like the idea of putting glue on the false lashes and then putting them on top of my natural lashes.  I can see how doing this would pull out my own lashes overtime.  I will say that I didn't notice I had them on and it was light as a feather.  But I just didn't care for them and plus I put them on wrong.  Off to the trash they went!  LOL!




Influenster #JadoreVoxBox Review- Hershey's Kisses Milk Chocolates

Hershey's Kisses Milk Chocolates: $5.29 for 18.5 oz. bag/ $3.28 for 11 oz. bag- You'll be surprised by this...I don't like chocolate.  So it's hard for me to review these Hershey Kisses.  If you love Hershey's you'll love these Kisses.





Influenster #JadoreVoxBox Review- John Frieda Frizz Ease Flat Iron Spray

Frizz Ease 3-Day Straight Flat Iron Spray: $9.99 for 3.5 fl. oz.- I saved this review for last.  I'm going to flat out say it...DON'T USE THIS PRODUCT!!!!!  This product has Keratin in it which has Formaldehyde.  Formaldehyde is a health hazard that can irritate the eyes and nose- causing allergic reactions affecting the skin, eyes and lungs and is linked to nose and lung cancer. That's why when stylist uses Keratin on their client's hair they use masks and gloves.  I actually found all this stuff out after using this product on my hair- which actually didn't work and left my hair dry, brittle, and frizzy the first day.  I know this product is not as strong as what is used in salons but use these at-home products with caution.

Have you tried Influenster #JadoreVoxBox products before, if so what were your thoughts?

  2. I tried Influenster last year and wasn't impressed. It was all stuff I normally wouldn't use and I felt like I had to do a lot of work to get the box {all the surveys and such to make rank} If you decide to do it again - I hope it's better the next round!

    1. It is a lot of work just to get boxes of products from them. I hate doing all the task you have to do just to rank high. If I get another box I hope it's better than this one.

    2. i joined and haven't ever done anything. they keep saying i'm a finalist but like you guys, i'm kind of hesitant. it's a lot of work and promotion from us for not that much in return?

      Delete
    3. Yeah, way too much work for products that are not even all that good. But I will say they have good products to test sometimes.

  3. I have never gotten anything form influenster.. although I am signed up (at least I am)... I am big tea drinker and love caramel so would like to try the tea and see what I think.. Love chocolate so that is something that I would go for. Sorry that you were disappointed.

    1. You might like the caramel flavored tea Marlys if you like teas that are not bold with flavor.

  4. Oh wow! I had NO idea that Frizz Ease had formaldehyde in it! I don't use many hair products, but definitely won't be using this one! Thanks for the honest review!!

    1. Yes if a product contains Keratin then it has formaldehyde in it. Companies really need to be labeling the side effects of using these kind of products.

  5. Thanks for the honest review! Well the eyelashes looked nice on you but I'm not a fan of false lashes either it's something about glue near my eyes that prevents me from following that trend. I screamed whatttt when you said you didn't like chocolate lol

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Yeah that can't be good having glue on your own natural lashes. I won't be adding false lashes again.

      Girl yes, I don't eat chocolate because it makes me feel sick. But I will eat a Twix though.

  6. I got the same Influenster Vox Box, but I actually liked the tea. And I love chocolate (so does my family), so no worries there. My daughter tried the falsies and liked them. It was her first time using lashes too, but she did all right. And we didn't use the Frizz Ease either, after I read the label. Put that one in the donation bag.
    Great review! I'm sorry you were so disappointed with the products, but hey - it made for a really good review. =0)

    1. I'm glad you guys didn't use the Frizz Ease, I would just throw it away. I'm happy to see you liked the tea, I could've just added some sweetener for a better taste.

  8. WHAT?? You don't like chocolate? Now you and I can't be friends - KIDDING!! That is a bummer that you were disappointed with the box. Maybe the next one will be so awesome it will blow your mind?

    1. We have to be friends!!!!!! But I hope the next box is good.

  9. I am not a big tea drinker but did like the taste of the Red Rose, too bad my local store doesn't carry because I have yet to use the coupons. The bag of Hershey's are in my desk drawer for the 3:00 pick me ups. I haven't tried the mask or false lashes and I only used the frizz ease twice...so my grade is a C.

    1. Those lashes and the mask is nothing to be thrilled about. Don't rush using them.

    1. I'm surprise Frizz Ease worked for your daughter's hair since it's really thick.

  33. Thanks so much for your honest review. And, I was actually interested in trying that frizz treatment so I appreciate you warning me off!

  34. Lucky! I haven't been picked for a box in quite a while. I love the Hershey's Kisses! YUM!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Thanks for the honest review! it's not often that you see them like this. I've done a couple of boxes for Influenster in the past however the last one I received was missing over half of the products. It was a waste of my time and energy.

  36. I've never really be impressed by their boxes. Thank you for being brave and putting out an honest review!

  42. I'm glad you said that about the Frizz Ease because otherwise I probably would have tried it! I didn't know that about keratin at all. I'd be happy to take the Kisses off of your hands, though!

    1. Yeah but it's not just Frizz Ease with keratin in it, it's a lot of hair products that has keratin so do be cautious of them.
