My First TLC VoxBox from Influenster

I recently joined a website called Influenster.  If you are not a blogger, you may have never heard about it.  I am not even sure where I heard about it, but when I did I decided to sign up!  What is Influenster, you ask?  Well, Influenster is a community of trendsetters, social media masterminds, and educated consumers who live to give opinions of products and experiences.  Being the media mastermind that I am, I knew it was just for me!  Ha!

Influenster gives these nifty little boxes away, called Voxboxes.  VoxBoxes are boxes filled with complimentary products from your favorite (or soon-to-be-favorite) brands. Not all Voxboxes are created equal: some programs feature an assortment of products while others will spotlight one awesome brand. But make no mistake: All VoxBoxes are created awesome.

Here's how it works: A select group of Influensters receive FREE themed product shipments based on the Expert Badges they have unlocked, their measured Impact across all connected networks, demographics, and, well, good old fashioned luck.

I was so excited a few weeks ago to receive my first complimentary Vox box, which is pictured above.  So, I thought I would share it with you!  Here is what was in it:

A Shell Fuel rewards card
A Pass the Puffs sample pack
A full size container of Avon ANew wrinkle smoother
A full size bar of Ivory Soap
A travel size container of Neo To Go (Neosporin first aid antiseptic/pain relieving spray)
A coupon for one free Breyers Gelato Indulgences

So fun!  And as for how I like everything I received?  As far as the Shell card, we don’t have Shell stations where I live, but I have activated the card and stuck it in my wallet in case we are ever travelling and decide to gas up at a Shell station.  We can save 3 cents per gallon.  Plus, if we ever shop with participating Shell Stations, restaurants, online merchants and more to earn fuel rewards savings redeemable at participating Shell Stations. 

And I use Puffs to go on a regular basis even before I received a free sample, I carry them in purse and my car at all times. 

As for the ivory soap, I am also a regular user of Ivory soap.  I am very sensitive and prone to urinary tract infections, and it is one of the only soaps I can use that does not bother me.  But I did something really special with this particular bar of soap.  I used it to make this DIY Car Upholstery Cleaner that I had Pinned on Pinterest.  My car was filthy inside, so I made some of this stuff, and LC cleaned my upholstery for me.  Not only does my upholstery look like new again, but it left my whole car smelling like Ivory soap!

Clean your car on the cheap with this super easy DIY car upholstery cleaner. It brightens even the dingiest seats!

The Neo to Go went straight into my car.  I haven’t used it yet, but I am sure one of the kids will be in need of it at some point in time. 

I haven’t used the coupon for the Free Breyers Gelato Indulgences yet because I keep forgetting it at home when I go grocery shopping, and I need to get on that because I just discovered that it expires tomorrow, yikes! 

All in all, I really enjoyed my Voxbox from Influenster.  Thank you so much Influenster!  When do I get my next one?

Are you a member of Influenster?  and if so, have you received a Voxbox before? 

I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes.
