Frosty VoxBox Review

Influenster sent me the Frosty VoxBox for FREE to review here!  My thoughts below the jump:

So jazzed about getting the #FrostyVoxBox @influenster

A post shared by Dootsie (@dootsie_bug) on

The Frosty VoxBox included wintery and beauty products.  I was super jazzed to get it!  The VoxBoxes always have a great value for the effort I am expected to put into reviewing (filling out a survey about your experience is required and completing blog reviews is optional, but can earn more VoxBoxes!)  They sometimes have a better value than boxes I pay for, and this one is no exception; this box was worth around $30.

Rimmel Gentle Eye Makeup Remover (full size $4 value) – This was nice and gentle.  It promises to work on waterproof makeup, and it really seemed to do a nice job. This brand is NOT cruelty-free.

Rimmel Scandaleyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal Eyeliner in black (full size $4 value) – This has a really soft consistency, meant to glide on easily.  I feel like it stayed that consistency rather than drying.  It smudged nicely, but I actually felt like it was TOO dark on, bordering on messy.  For a rockstar look, this would be great.  It’s not something I’d wear to work, but that’s my workplace! This brand is NOT cruelty-free.

NYC New York Color Expert Last Lip Color in Sugar Plum (full size $2 value) – This shade is a warm, dark mauve with some frost.  I like it about a million times more than I expected to!  The texture is less gritty than most frost lippies go.  It’s a shade I never would’ve picked for myself, but it looks really nice on me.  This brand is NOT cruelty-free.

Celestial Seasonings Candy Cane Lane Decaf Green Tea (one packet) – I didn’t try this because I just don’t like mint teas.

McCormick Gourmet All-Natural Thyme (full size $5-$10 value) – I haven’t actually seen the exact product I received anywhere yet (it’s not even what’s pictured on their site), so this may be new.  Smells lovely.

Fruit Vines Bites in Strawberry (full size $2.50ish value) – THESE ARE SO YUMMY.  They’re from the makers of Red Vines, so I expected them to be kind of tough–they’re actually super soft and squishy.  A very nice strawberry candy flavour that’s not too sweet.  I’m going to end up buying these again!

Boots No 7 Protect & Perfect Advanced Serum (sample packet) – I didn’t use this since it’s meant to be used multiple times to get any effect.  It claims to be anti-aging.

EcoTools Sleek + Shine Finisher Brush (full size $10.99 value) – I was so excited to get this!  It’s definitely meant to be a finishing brush–it doesn’t push all the way through my really thick hair to detangle completely.  What it does do is leave my hair feeling super silky.  I like the open design of the brush, which makes it good for brushing while blowdrying.  The site claims to use eco-friendly materials, but fails to really explain exactly what.  The bristles are synthetic (they have a foul chemical smell up close–I’m writing them about this!), the handle is bamboo and their site purports that some of their plastics and metals are recycled.  At any rate, as a finishing brush, this is amazing!
