Oh my gad…
I got my first Influenster Canada VoxBox!
Okay, I was a little skeptical to sign up for this program at first – I mean, there’s always a catch to something right? Though, more and more people I followed on Instagram were posting their VoxBoxes, and my curiosity grew.
So, after doing a bit of research on the company and confirming that it was indeed free – with no secret monthly/yearly subscription needed – naturally, I signed up.
And I thought I’d have to wait a really long time in order to start receiving products for review, but I had my first notification that I was on the shortlist in a just a couple of months!
Lucky for me, I’ve recently been into trying new skincare products so as fate may have it, my first box was from Vichy!
So let’s get to it!
Vichy Lift Activ Hyalu Mask
Plumps skin, restores softness, refreshes complexion.
The name sounded intense – I mean, hyaluronic acid people. So, a little intimidated, but super excited to try!
Packaging looks very chic, sleek and mature. Liked it was a smooth gel, not cream. Brownie points – I was pleasantly surprised that I received a full size product (50ml) and not sample.
After testing it the first time I actually felt a difference in my skin. The instructions call for you to apply on cleansed skin, leave for 5 minutes and wipe away with a damp cloth.
So, I was honestly expecting my skin to feel dry after wiping off, but it was the total opposite.
It left my face feeling super smooth.
And to further test, I also didn’t apply lotion after wiping, to see if my skin would eventually tighten and dry out, but it did not. It was actually so moisturizing and hydrating!
Final thoughts + verdict
Overall, I’m very impressed with the formula! I like the consistency of the gel – it’s not too thick or sticky on my face or hands. Will for sure continue to use this in my skincare routine. It doesn’t take any effort to apply and it’s not messy, so I don’t mind the extra step after my morning cleanse or shower. Especially since it only calls for use a couple of times a week, one container would last me a few months. A little definitely goes a long way!
My only suggestion or critique is that I wish the gel was scented or coloured, making it more fun. It would also help me see where I applied and where I need to wipe off, in case I missed any areas. Though I just like bright and fun packaging – personal preference!
I love the glow it leaves my skin with!
Plus, my face feels as soft as my chinchilla.

If not, what products do you use in your skincare routine?
