Unboxing: Influenster Spring Fling VoxBox!

I signed up for Influenster awhile ago and never expected to receive anything from them, but surprisingly enough pretty quickly I was sent two qualifier quizzes and on the second one I received the email that I was in! I qualified for the Spring Fling VoxBox and after many sneak peeks and giddy anticipation this beauty finally arrived in the mail! Here's a quick unboxing and some first impression thoughts on what came in this box! First of all it came jam packed with goodies and I was more than pleased to see that most of them were beauty related, but a little sad that there were no snacks or treats! I was lucky enough to be selected for the bonus item this box which gave me a little laugh that I'll let you all in on later. 

Everything was nicely packed in the box and underneath all the goodies I found this card that described everything that was in the box. My box came with six items total including the bonus item that only select boxes included.
The first thing I pulled out was this NIVEA Skin Firming Hydration Lotion. So usually I'm not a lotion fan, probably because all the lotions I've been receiving in my subscription boxes lately are heavily perfumed. This one I will actually use since it's virtually fragrance free. I hate it when lotion mixes with my perfume and creates a hot mess, so this will definitely get some use and is the perfect purse friendly size.
Next up is this Rimmel London Scandaleyes Retro Glam Mascara which I am on the fence about. Rimmel has delivered the best mascara I've ever used (RIP Lycra Extend) and the worst (Extra Super Lash AND Scandaleyes Show Off), but I must say the brush shape is promising and everyone knows the real secret is in the brush. I'm a huge fan of the hourglass shape, both my Too Faced Better Than Sex as well as Cover Girl Flamed Out have similar brushes so I am looking forward to taking this one for a spin.
I've never used plastic press on nails before so I am genuinely interested in trying out these Kiss Everlasting French Nails. This may become a blog topic because I predict a very long process since it seems very difficult to me. Perhaps a return of Mani Monday to see how long these babies last?
Personally I'm a Tampax girl (TMI I know..) but when Mother Nature comes, it will be good to have this box of Playtex Sport Fresh Balance on hand. I don't understand the need for different "levels" when it comes to tampons because frankly I think the regular ones work fine and are just as comfortable. 
Here's the Labor Day (the movie) extra they hinted at which is a Peach Pie Car Freshener. I still need to watch the movie so I don't understand this whole pie scene everyone is talking about, but it's a cute little tag and the air freshener just ran out in my car so this will get some use.
The last item in this box that I'm having a laugh over is this Softlips Cube. Why am I laughing? Less than a week ago I finally picked one up after combing through stores looking for them after reading a rave review. This one is in a different scent that I got, but this is the one item that I have been trying and can give a full "I love this product!" spiel. I love that it's a cube, the product is creamy and easy to apply, and oh so moisturizing. I'm a huge fan and I'm thrilled that I have an extra. I used the original Softlip skinny sticks all through high school and I'm pleased to now have this updated version to indulge in.
**Disclaimer: All these items were sent to me free by Influenster for my testing purposes and review.

    1. I was so excited to actually get one! Is it true that if you don't complete all the tasks you will never be considered for another one?
