Frosty VoxBox – What’s in the box?

20141213_093217


Here is another “What’s in the box” Influenster addition! It is my Frosty VoxBox I just received from Influenster. I love doing these “What’s in the Box” reviews because I know I am always curious when I see someone post something they received. I am one of those who like to watch unboxing videos and product reviews. I feel like getting a VoxBox is somewhat of an elite team, because it’s very rare that I actually get one. It’s like a flip of a coin. Anyway, I got this one..So here it is!

20141213_095315 Packed with goodness. Random goodness. Just the way I like it! Here is a car with the rundown;

20141213_095453 It might be hard to see in this picture, but here are the products up close and personal!


#1. McCormick Gourmet All Natural Thyme.

20141213_095622

I have to explain… I am SUPER excited to have gotten this. I have a cabinet FULL of seasonings of all types (literally.. I need an organizer of some sort..) There have got to be over 50… Funny enough, I do not… well DID NOT have Thyme in dry form! Crazy right? So this will fit right into my collection! Woohoo #Winning!


#2. Fruit Vines Bites – Strawberry

20141213_095607

This is going to go so fast in my house. My husband LOVES Fruit Vines, as does my 6 year old and myself. Not much to say about Fruit Vines except, if you haven’t had them yet, what are you waiting for?!


#3. Celestial Candy Cane Lane Tea Sample & Coupon

20141213_095521

I am a morning coffee drinker. I don’t usually have tea in my routine although I know it is good for you, especially in the Winter to warm you up. I think Candy Cane tea is a unique flavor and I am definitely going to be trying this sometime this week and reviewing it on Influensters site. If I like it, I’m excited that the 55 cent off coupon will DOUBLE to $1.10 off at my local grocery store!


#4. EcoTools Styler and Smoother brush

PhotoGrid_1418517014625

This is a SCORE!!!! This brush retails for $10 in drug stores. It is supposed to help your hair to dry when brushing through it, and also the shape and bristles are supposed to stop extra damage and split ends. I am really looking forward to adding this brush to my hair routine. Currently I have a Conair flat brush, but I feel like I need something new anyway…


#5. Rimmel London Eye Make-up Remover

20141213_095801

 I wear eye makeup everyday. I am not a big make-up EXCEPT for my mascara and eye liner. Funny enough, I don’t use eye make-up remover ever. I think I have some type somewhere under my bathroom cabinet, but I just don’t ever think to use it. I know this is a great brand, so I may give it a shot but I feel like my full face make-up remover sheets work fine for my eye make-up so far. Anyone ever use this – comment below?


#6. Scandaleyes Black Eye Liner by Rimmel London

20141213_095750

If there is one thing I’m known for, it’s eye liner. I LOVE trying all types. I am usually OK with any kind for my lower eyelid as far as pencils go, so I know I will use this. I just hope it’s as good as my Urban Decay 24/7. This is a FULL SIZE by the way. SCORE again! #StillWinning


#7. NYC Lipstick in”Sugar Plum”

 PhotoGrid_1418516918908

I am definitely not a big lipstick wearing person. I love my strawberry chapstick and cannot live without it. I think that contributes to the reason I do not wear lipstick.. My lips feel dehydrated LOL. Since I rarely every wear it, when I do try it on, I feel like my lips look weird, or too flashy regardless of the color. But that doesn’t mean I am not a lipstick hoarder. This color is cute, and it’ll stay captive in my collection until I decide to go through the lipstick phase, or give it away..


#8. Boots No.7 Advanced Serum

20141213_095505

Apparently this product is all the rage in the UK. It’s supposed to visibly reduce even fine lines. I feel like they were a little skimpy on the package they gave. I know it says it is $22-$29 for a full size of this. The problem is, it says within 2 weeks to notice the difference, and I doubt I’ll get 2 weeks out of this tiny trial packet. There is a $2 coupon attached, but $2 off $29 not sure I’m all for that being that I’m not sure it’ll even do what it says. I feel like I’ve been fortunate to try a ton of creams, expensive name brand items that all promise extreme results in a short time, and not one of them has delivered fully. I am young, and some laugh when I say it, but I KNOW I have fine lines. Even if they are “Smile” Lines, I have lines, and I don’t want them.. I’ll give this a shot, for as long as it’ll last, and if I do see any results that are worth it I promise to amend this and review it.

That’s all for my Frosty Voxbox this Dec 2014. Some really cool stuff that I am glad to try and review for Influenster on their site.

Influenster – what’s in the box?

20141206_125314

I got this Influenster voxbox in the mail today, and at first I thought it was the new Tresemme’ one that I am expecting. To my surprise it wasn’t! So what is in it?  Let’s check it out!!!

20141206_125408It was actually from the Neosporin brand badge that I won from getting the TLC Voxbox. It has a ton of full size products from Neosporin brand as a thank you for completing specific tasks.So exciting! Lets take a closer look…

20141206_125633


My kids are going to LOVE The Muppets band-aids. We saw The Muppets movie in the theater this past Summer, so my son is very familiar with them. Whenever I see Band-Aid I can’t help but sing the commercial song “I am stuck on Band-aid brand so germs don’t stick on me!”. I didn’t realize that they were the same company as Neosporin. Cool!

20141206_125659


What mom can live without this? The good ol’ normal, Neosporin. I always have some on hand, so this will certainly be put to use!

20141206_125714


I haven’t seen or used this product before today. Its an antiseptic foam made by Neosporin. It is made for kids and promises not to sting. I look forward to trying this out!

20141206_125731


A box of flexible fabric band-aids which are my absolute favorite (next to the antiseptic band-aids with neosporin built in the pads) so I am so happy these were included in this package. They’re so comfortable and stick on really well.

20141206_125722


The next item is Bengay “Zero Degrees” which I also have never used or heard of. It is a pain relieve that is similar in looksto a gel deodorant. It says you should freeze it after the first use, so I am not sure if it stays a gel or how it works. Still, it’s greatto have around just in case!

20141206_12575020141206_125756


Lastly, there is this Neosporin Eczema Essentials Daily Moisturizing cream. I haven’t tried this either, but I know it goes for about $12 at Walmart, even more at other stores. Hopefully it’ll help with my dry, cracked skin on my hands from this Winter already (and it’s only started!). This is definitely good to have this time of year.

20141206_125742

Overall, I am so happy about all of these products I received and I am thankful to Neosporin company and Influenster for choosing me as a brand badge winner!

Disney Movie Club Review – Is it worth it?

10731184_850004221711700_3383631482404244309_n (Original photo from Disney Movie Club Facebook Page)

To join or not to join? That is the question!

You wouldn’t know this, but I actually wrote this blog backwards. That’s right, I started at the end, and ended up here. Well, actually, I wrote this in the middle… OK, too confusing. The point is, the stuff at the bottom is REALLY important and a huge part of this review, which is why I technically started with it to make sure I included it, so make sure to read it!

I’m sure you’ve seen the banner ads for Disney Movie Club, or saw the sponsored link on Facebook or somewhere similar, and then thought to yourself that it’s too good to be true. It has to be…. but is it though?

From reading the comments of angry mothers or grandparents on the sponsored post or consumer affairs complaints, you’d think that it was a big rip-off or that Disney is doing something that they shouldn’t. I am here to speak from experience as an actual mother who has purchased these and joined the club for the third time to build my kids a nice collection.

movies (This is only part of my collection)

So why did I do it 3 times? And why do I think it is a GOOD deal? Here’s why;

The introductory offer – typically if you go through a referral of a member, you can get 5 Disney DVDs OR Blu-Ray DVD’s for just $1 with FREE SHIPPING. Literally just $1, that’s all. You get to pick from popular Disney titles like Mulan, Brave, Finding Nemo, Planes, and even Frozen. The catch is, to get 5 titles for $1, you need to join with a credit card. This is so they can charge you every 4 weeks for a new title IF you do not decline on time (which I’ll be honest, I’ve forgotten a few times and been charged $40 and angry about it). But I’ll get to that shortly.

Continuing on, that’s $1, for 5 titles. I chose Blu-Ray because I feel like in the end, they’re worth more. Then, they give you the option to add another for just $11.95, that will count toward your commitment status, making it only 3 movies to buy in the next 2 years, instead of 4, AND you get FREE shipping since it’s your initial order. Finally, during this initial order, they give you an option to buy a 2nd BONUS title for just $8.95, again, FREE shipping, but it will not count towards your commitment status.

Adding this initial order up, that’s 7 Blu-Ray DVD’s for a grand total of $21.90 (I can’t remember if that includes tax or not, but lets just say it does for the sake of this post – you’ll get the idea) and you’ll have 7 brand new Disney movies shipped to you within 4 weeks to start or add to your collection.

Now, you still owe the commitment of 3 additional movies. If you initially selected Blu-Ray, they’ll be at a premium price of $29.95, and if you selected DVD format, they’ll be about $19.95 each. Plus shipping which adds an additional $3.95 (for the first title, $1.95 for any additional in your order).  So it will be about $33 per Blu-ray to fulfill your commitment. That seems like a lot for a DVD right? Especially since you can get some of them at Wal-Mart for just $15. Well, not really. If you actually research the titles, the Blu-Ray is about $19.95+ at Wal-Mart, and $26+ at Target for the same movie. Still, it’s more then you’d pay at a big box retailer. Until you actually add it all up, PLUS the perks/benefits.

3 movies at about $33 each is $99- for THREE, yes THREE DVDs. That is blaspheme! No, it actually isn’t. You got a GREAT deal if you really wanted a collection for your kids or yourself. $99 + $21.90= $120.90 for 10 Blu-Ray Disney DVD’s. That totals $12 per movie which is much less then at the stores, no matter which store you get it from.

Sometimes they throw in an extra bonus movie and add shipping for that as well which is shady, so it’ll come to $40 if you’re not paying attention. Example, I forgot to decline my “feature title” this month and was charged $40 from my bank account… I was pretty ticked until I saw that they sent me the new “Planes – Fire & Rescue” Blu-Ray PLUS “Mickey Mouse Christmas Carol” Blu-Ray, my youngest loves planes and Mickey and it fulfilled a commitment, so I only owe 1 more within the next year.

MORE perks and FREE stuff.

Once you receive your initial shipment of DVD’s, you can join Disney Movie Rewards Club for FREE. Typically, when you sign up, they have deals going on for a FREE movie. I got Secretariat, on Blu-Ray for free (with shipping $3.95). Plus, spend your points however you want to. I have gotten so much from them with my points (each movie you register is about 100 to 150 points, so they add up QUICK and your initial DMG order of 7 DVD’s will snag you up to 1500 points right off the bat!!. To date I got;

  1. $10 Disney Store Gift card
  2. Secretariat Blu-Ray DVD
  3. FREE Movie ticket to go to The Muppets Most Wanted
  4. A Sully Hat with built in gloves (goes for over $30 on Ebay)
  5. Free stickers and crafts
  6. About 3 more free DVD’s

You can enter sweepstakes for FREE, and also add extra entries with points. Here is to show some of my unlocked offers;

Another perk of joining Disney Movie Rewards is that you are guaranteeing your registered discs. If anything, AHEM…KIDS… Happen to your movie, scratched beyond repair, cracked, or even broken in half, you can ship it back for a fee of $6.95 per the terms below, and they’ll mail you a new disc! That’s much better then paying for a brand new one! registration
