I had the amazing opportunity to review items sent to me from Influenster for the Campus Voxbox. It was filled with goodies and essentials for spring/summer!
Sour Patch Candy! Such a throw back! The straws are a classic, my favorite is the yellow one! I also loved the Punchies, they're new but they less messy but still chewy! My brothers and I had an awesome time munching on these while we watched a movie!
The L'Oreal hair care system was a really nice treat! I have pretty crazy curly hair, and this calmed it down a bit and just smoothed it out! Really nice if you straighten your hair often, it would make it easier. I probably won't repurchase this however because I like my curls more defined and I don't straighten my hair that often.
I have received the Soft lips cube before from Influenster and I love it. It's a cube so it fits better in my makeup bag verses the EOS eggs, however I still find it bulky. Love the formula, so it's something I keep by my bedside, but it takes up way too much space in my tiny makeup bag!
I have never tried any kind of self-tanner. I'm Indian, so my skin already has a natural tan to it. I really liked this formula because it gave my skin a bit of a glow. It was nice and looked more sun kissed and healthy!
Last but not least, the St. Ives face scrub. I have tried this before and it's amazing. Apricot is a bit harsh for your skin from what I've heard, but I think this scrub is perfect for once a week! I really, really like it and my skin always feels so fresh after I use it!
Overall loved these products. They're a nice treat for the spring/summer and a great snacks for study breaks!
I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes, however, all opinions are my own.

This morning I tried out the Biore Deep Cleansing Pore Strips. I received it in my Seventeen Magazine March Subscription and it was amazing!
It made my skin feel so fresh and my nose looks more smoother now! You can definitely see the difference and while I don’t have black heads, it makes my skin look so much clearer.
This strip is pretty easy to use, you wet your face and then put in on. Leave it on for about 15-20 minutes, it’ll be dry then, like a paper mache. The strip was not that hard to clean off, the black part took a little bit of face wash and wiped right off. It hurts a bit when you’re taking the strip off, but nothing horrible! If you take a shower before using this strip, your pores will be more open and the strips will be more effective!
Be gentle on your skin after you use this. I wouldn’t use it weekly unless your pores are really bad. Also use a gentle cleanser but nothing that is exfoliating or most acne medicines. Your skin will be pretty sensitive. If you have acne in that area I wouldn’t use the strip because it will hurt and won’t be good for the acne.
