A few months ago I signed up for Influenster and on Saturday I received my very first VoxBox in the mail! Below I have listed the products that came inside my VoxBox as well as a small review on each product.

Inside the Cosmo VoxBox:

:: Ghirardelli's sea salt escape gourmet milk chocolate bar
:: Forever Red perfume exclusively at Bath & Body Works
:: Gillette Venus Embrace razor
:: Gillette Venus & Olay single cartridge
:: $ 2.00 off coupon for any Venus cartridge pack
:: FriXion erasable pen's by Pilot Pen in both black and pink

Product Description and Review:

Product: Ghirardelli Sea Salt Escape - gourmet milk chocolate with bursts of sea salt and almonds.

Review: Delicious! The sea salt in this chocolate bar made me a little hesitant at first but after trying it I was pleasantly surprised by the subtle taste of the sea salt and the creaminess of the milk chocolate. I will definitely be trying this chocolate bar again!

Product: Forever Red exclusively at Bath & Body Works - a blend of pomegranate, red osmanthus, and vanilla rum.

Review: I absolutely love perfume so I was thrilled when I saw Bath & Body Works new perfume Forever Red in my VoxBox. After wearing this perfume for a few days I can definitely say I am really enjoying it so far, it smells very womanly, sexy, and the vanilla rum and oak wood give it, it's edge and richness. I would highly recommend this perfume and think it would be perfect to wear on dates and special occasions!

Product: Gillette Venus Embrace razor

Review: I have been using the Gillette Venus Embrace razor for years now and love how smooth it makes my legs feel after I shave, I also really love that any Venus cartridge will fit any Venus razor handle, so you can mix and match as you please!

Product: Gillette Venus and Olay cartridge

Review: What I really loved about the Venus and Olay cartridge is that it is very moisturizing and made my legs feel very soft and smooth. What I don't like about this product though is that the Olay moisturizing bars on the razor blade run out very quickly. I personally would much rather use a very moisturizing soap or shaving cream that I know will last me a while instead of having to spend money on an expensive razor cartridge that's not going to last me very long.

Product: FriXion by Pilot Pen - writes in gel ink and can be completely erased with the rubber tip.

Review: I'm actually kind picky when it comes to pens because my handwriting is awful and there are some pens out there that make it even worse. The FriXion pen looks well made and I really like the idea of the eraser on the end, which by the way works really well! My only problem with the FriXon pen is that the gel fades in and out when you write with it. Other then that it's a nice pen and I'm very impressed with how well the eraser works!

* Please note I received each product complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes. Each review listed above is my own honest opinion on the products I received.
