My First Ever Influenster VoxBox
Cosmo Box

 I'd heard so much about the Influenster website I wanted to join up - I enjoy inputting reviews on their website of some products that I've used and reading others reviews.
I was ecstatic to receive an email telling me I had been selected to review and Influenster VoxBox, the Cosmo Box

If you're interested in finding out more about Influenster you can check them out here at
So....onto the magical Cosmo VoxBox contents!!

First things first, the card with all the deets about what's inside the Cosmo VoxBox 2012 and what you should do once you've opened it :)

The first thing that caught my eye was obviously the full sized Ghirardelli chocolate bar!

This particular variety was called "Sea Salt Escape" and yes, it contained real sea salt.  The gourmet milk chocolate is melt in the mouth and the light crunch of the sea salt makes the perfect combination of sweet and salty. I will be putting a few bars of these babies in the Christmas stockings this year for sure.

More about the delicious Ghirardelli Gourmet chocolate and it's huge variety of products can be found here

The next thing to catch my eye in the Cosmo Voxbox was the Bath & Body Works Exclusive  "Forever Red" fragrance. The size of the bottle in my box was .25ml. You can find bath and body works online at and in store at Bath and body Works.

Personally, I found the fragrance rather sweet for my liking and every one has their own taste as far as fragrances go but I did like the packaging and handbag sized bottle.
Forever Red also comes in the Shimmer Mist, Fine Fragrance Mist, Body Lotion and Shower Gel to name a few.

Next up......the 5 blade, Venus Embrace Razor by Gillette which also has a "ribbon of moisture". Also in the cute yellow bag were an extra razor Venus & Olay razor which have "Olay Moisture Bars" on the outer edges which release skin conditioners to help lock-in moisture and 5 blades for an amazingly close shave. Finally in the bag was a coupon for $2 off a purchase of the refillable AND interchangeable array of Gillette blades

After my first use of the Gillette Venus Embrace I really liked the shave it gave but the main thing I noticed was the super soft and moisturized feel it left on my legs!

My favorite thing about the Gillette Venus Embrace razor was the handle.  It has a "rubbery" texture to it and is ergonomically shaped which made it much easier to grip with wet hands than run-of-the-mill razors.

So far so good......

The final items in my Cosmo VoxBox were two gel pens by Pilot aptly named "FIXation". These are no ordinary gel pen as I came to find out.
The pens I received were in black and red packaging which also relates to the ink color.
They also have a funky, tribal tattoo-esque design on them. Nifty!

The FIXation pen, which is available in six colors is actually an erasable gel ink pen which is SUPER handy when completing forms or hand-writing letters or essays.  The fine tip with it's gel ink flows beautifully and helps to make handwriting look all that much more precise and neat.

All in all - I loved my first Influenster VoxBox and enjoyed trying everything out. No doubt, I'll be re-purchasing the Ghirardelli chocolate and trying out some more of their varieties as-well-as the array of Venus Embrace re-fillable razors.

Thank you Influenster!
