Review: Influenster VoxBox

It's been a while since I received an Influenster voxbox to review. In the past I've received a box of free beauty supplies: (complete with fake eyelashes, make-up applicator q-tips, teeth whitening toothpaste, and gel inserts for my shoes), and a free box of ferrero rocher chocolate. So far, I've highly enjoyed being a member of the #Influenster team! The wait to receive some more free swag was well worth it, because I received the best VoxBox EVER a few weeks ago!

This was entirely from Victoria's Secret, and it was complete with their new VS Sports Bra, workout socks, Victoria's Secret coupons and a measuring tape.
I've always been a rather "small-chested" individual, and never had any issues with support during my work outs. Buuut recently I had been a little uncomfortable with a lack of support in my sports bras with my new "larger chest." Between gaining weight and breastfeeding I've gone up a whole cup size and for the first time ever, I'm looking for major support in my bras. Enter the VS Sport Bra, this gave me the support I was looking for in my running!
These VS Sport socks came in a ton of different, fun, bright colors. I recently threw out a ton of socks because they had holes in them, so I was more than happy to clear a space for these in my sock drawer!

This Voxbox could not have come at a better time. I just so happened to have started running again, and was finally feeling back into the swing of things with running and working out. Getting this special package full of surprises to enhance my work-outs was like a little "congratulations to me" for being so good (sidebar: I ran consistently for two weeks and then got a bit of a sweaty heat rash from the workouts which unfortunately led to taking 2 weeks off so it could clear up - because it was dangerously close to nursing territory...my rash is finally gone so I'm hoping to get back out there asap!)

I love my new VS sports Bra for so many reasons, and I think I may have to go out and get 2 or 3 more. Having only one functional, supportive sports bra when you're trying to work out multiple days a week is not very practical, so I will be off to Victoria's Secret soon to get some more!
Supportive AND Stylish!
What sport bras do you use? Do you find you need a bra with extra support when working out? Have you tried the #VSSportBra?

  1. So funny that you posted this today because I couldn't find any of my sports bras this morning. I finally found one that I've worn since you were a child! Perhaps I should get a few new ones as well. I don't think of VS for sports gear but I will be checking out their website as soon as I hit "Publish."

    1. I never really thought of VS for work out gear either, but I will now!

  3. Heat rash is the WORST (#largechestproblems over here). To prevent it, keep the area as dry as you can! Gold Bond powder can help stop it if it's starting too. The socks look fun, but I can't fit in VS bras...again, #largechestproblems!

    1. Yeaaa I never dealt with this before - I def. went out and bought gold bond powder and I guess I'll just put it on before I go on my runs. I never had #largechestproblems before, but I guess I should start getting used to my new body as a whole anyway. I thought VS had all different shapes and sizes available - I'm surprised you have trouble there - and I bet you'd fit into their stuff now with your weight loss!

  4. So jealous! I wish I could have received this Voxbox too! But I just recently purchased the Victoria's Secret Angel sports bra and I am in love with it! With losing some weight, I have lost some in my chest and this is the first sports bra that I have bought that is so supportive that I don't need to wear a second bra underneath it. I highly recommend it. I am going to have to try this one out as well!

    1. Yea, as my mom said, I never really thought about Victoria's Secret for work out clothes, but apparently they have an amazing selection and if it's all like the quality of this bra, then it's good stuff! Let me know if you try this bra out!
