For today I have the Influenster Varsity VoxBox to review for you. I am sure most of you know of Influenster by now, and how they put together fun boxes full of products tailored to fit your interests and then send them out for a bunch of people to test and review. The Varsity Voxbox of course has a lot of products that I find really useful as a college student - to find out what they are and how I liked them, keep on reading!
Since of course PTR is a nail blog, what better place to start than with the nail strips included in the kit? Kiss Nail Dress nail strips are pretty easy in theory to put on - stick on the strips, fold them over, and then use the included nail file to file off the extra. I did have a hard time getting these to lie completely flat against my nail without wrinkles, but I did like the blingy effect! This was my first attempt with nail strips, so I can only get better with practice. Below is a how-to for how to apply the strips - just click to enlarge the image!
Second up, my favorite product of the box - NYC New York Color Big Bold Plumping & Shine Lip Gloss! This is a lip gloss, and the first plumper I've tried. I got it in the shade "Pleasantly Plump Pink" and it was a bit of a neutral/bubblegum shade. When I applied it was a little tacky/sticky but not too bad, and definitely had that tingly feeling of plumpers I've heard about. I don't know if it made my lips that much plumper but I did like it!

Lastly, Clearasil Daily Clear Refreshing Superfruit Wash is a raspberry/cranberry scented face wash. I used this a few times and found it quite pleasant. It is salicylic acid-based, as opposed to benzoyl peroxide (those are the two main ingredients usually used in acne medication as far as I know). I enjoyed the chance to try out a new face wash - always looking for the new trick to achieve and maintain flawless skin!
Overall this was a great mix of products and I am glad I got to review them for you! Influenster never lets me down in introducing me to cool new stuff to try out :)
Hope to have more mani posts up for you guys soon!
Have a fantastic day!♥
