Hello lovers! Today I’m excited to share with you the contents of the Jingle Vox Box I recently received from Influenster and my thoughts on each of the products. This box had a little bit of everything: beauty products, a toy for kids and even several food items.
Check out my unboxing video on YouTube:
As pictured above, the Jingle VoxBox included:
KISS True Volume Lashes and KISS Brush On Clear Strip Lash Adhesive
I was excited to see the KISS True Volume Lashes in this VoxBox, as I really need to up my lash game and false lashes have always intimidated me. I figured this would force me to get comfortable with the process while also introducing me to a perfect option for falsies! I love how these lashes add dimension and volume to my natural lashes without making it apparent that I have applied false lashes.
I also love the KISS Brush On Clear Strip Lash Adhesive. The brush-on applicator made the process a cinch and allowed for precise glue application. One caveat with the adhesive: don’t be shy! Apply several somewhat thick coats for a secure, confident hold. I was too tentative with the glue on my first attempt and eventually discovered when I did the second eye that I hadn’t applied enough of it!
I also created a YouTube tutorial on how to apply the KISS True Volume Lashes. Check it out if you have a minute!
This eyeliner is such a stud! The pigment is rich and applies easily (think smooth and svelte), which is hard to find in a pencil eyeliner. What’s more, it lasts all day and night without smudging or running. I even wore this baby to my brother’s wedding recently and through tears of joy and dancing the night away the eyeliner stayed put. Love this product!
I also recreated an edgy eyeliner look for an Influenster contest with the NYC New York Color Eyeliner. I really love the way my makeup turned out, and the blue lipstick (Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick in Echo) was a fun touch!
Finally I qualified for an Influenster VoxBox that included nail polish!!! I received a sample of Pure Ice Nail Polish in Lacquered Lilacs which is a lovely soft lavender that is great for everyday. I of course swatched this baby for you, but I also used it for a couple of fun nail art designs!
The formula on this polish is good, a little thin but that allows for a more even application. My swatch in this post was opaque in 3 thin coats.
I was able to do two different nail art designs with Lacquered Lilacs. The first was a skeleton keyhole mani that included some negative space nails along with glitter accents.
The second design was a glitter gradient added to my Lacquered Lilacs swatch. Simple and elegant:

The Influenster Jingle VoxBox also included the most adorable miniature plush I have ever seen ~ the Olaf Itty Bitty, found exclusively at Hallmark stores. This was my first introduction to these cuties pies and they couldn’t be more collectible or desirable. My kids fought so much over the Olaf in my VoxBox that we made a trip to our local Hallmark store to grab another one and ended up with quite a few! We couldn’t decide on just one, myself included. I was like a kid all over again! Here’s the final line-up of our selections:
The Jingle VoxBox also included a coupon to get one bag of Ore-Ida Tater Tots for free with which to create a scrumptious Totchos meal. For those of you who are unfamiliar with Totchos, they are simply what you get when you mix Nachos and Tater Tots! Initially I was unsure whether this sounded good or not, but upon tasting my creation I was pleasantly surprised with the high yum factor in this new food trend.
My Totchos Recipe
I decided to make my Totchos meal kid friendly so I could enjoy it with my 5-year-old and 3-year-old, so that meant mild spiciness and nothing too exotic. Luckily this is also what my palate prefers so we were all happy campers!
- Ingredients: Ore-Ida Tater Tots, Kraft Mexican Cheddar Jack Shredded Cheese, Mild Salsa, Black Olives, Sour Cream
- Steps: I purposely baked the Ore-Ida Tater Tots about 10 minutes longer than the directions stated so they would be nice and crispy. I then loaded them with the Kraft Mexican Cheddar Jack Shredded Cheese and put them back in the oven for 5 minutes. I pulled them out of the oven and let them cool for 5 minutes. I then added the remaining ingredients and we had a fiesta in our mouths! So yummy!
You won’t be disappointed if you try Totchos out for yourself! If your palate prefers a more spicy totcho recipe or if you’d like to explore other options, check out the Kraft Recipes Totcho Hub.
The Biscoff Cookies included in the Jingle VoxBox have been some of my favorite cookies ever since I first tried them in France when I spent a summer there during college! They have the purrfect buttery sweetness and pair deliciously with a hot beverage. I love eating one or two of these with my coffee after dinner.
After me and the kids finished our Totchos meal, we made a yummy Biscoff Cookie dessert using the Biscoff Cookies from my Jingle VoxBox along with Nutella and slivered almonds. YUM once again!
Finally, the Jingle VoxBox also included Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream. I have been pleasantly surprised at how wonderful this cream is, particularly for chapped, winter skin. I like to apply this cream at night and use my moisturizing cream with SPF in the mornings. It does a fabulous job at combatting dryness and leaves my skin feeling soft and moisturized without being greasy. I even started applying this to the eczema on my son’s cheeks before bedtime and his skin was back to normal in 3 days! We will be keeping this cream on-hand from here on out.
The Influenster Jingle VoxBox knocked my socks off! So far this has been my favorite VoxBox to date, especially since every single product was a rock star! If you are interested in signing up for Influenster and qualifying for your own VoxBox, sign up with my referral link here.
