If you know me, you know I love receiving mail from Influenster! This refresh Vox Box did not disappoint. I’ll admit, I didn’t get to enjoy and promote it as much as I typically would. With moving, I’ve been completely out of the internet loop. So here’s the good, bad, and the ugly over this box!
My refresh Vox Box included the following:
Listerine Pocketpaks: I’ve been using these Listerine Pocketpaks for years, so I’m well acquainted with them. I love how strong they are and how long they keep your breath fresh! I tend to use these right before I go in to a space where I will be meeting people. Having TMJ, I don’t chew gum much anymore, but these help my OCD nature to not worry about my breath! 🙂
DenTek Flossers: I received both the adult and the kid flossers. I’m a big fan of flossing (as we all should be!), but I think I’m a bit of a traditionalist when it comes to flossing. This didn’t replace my preference of using a long strip of floss, but I loved carrying this around to use on the go. However, the kid flossers were awesome for my daughter! She’s five, and we’re learning how to floss. This gets her familiar with it between her teeth and they were easy to hold. She loved the bright colors and we bought some more so she can make it part of her nightly routine!
Beanitos chips: Okay — those Beanitos black bean chips are my JAM. They were delicious! Crispy and savory, they were exactly the right alternative for a traditional tortilla chip. The nacho cheese ones weren’t as good to me, as they seem softer and almost a little oily. The flavor was good, but the texture was off.
Covergirl UltraSmooth Foundation: I was pleasantly surprised by the Covergirl UltraSmooth foundation. It has a silicone applicator that felt a little strange at first, but it did smooth the hairs on my face for a very flawless look. Covergirl has changed their foundation formulas a bit, I think. They’ve come a long way since their Noxzema scented Clean foundation I used to wear in high school! This blended a lot better …and I think I’ve gotten better at wearing makeup since then!
L’Occitane Shea Butter light Comforting Cream: This. This stuff. It’s pleasantly scented and luscious. It makes me feel decadent! I absolutely LOVE this stuff. Best moisturizer I’ve ever put on my skin! While it feels moisturizing and rich, it also doesn’t make me feel oily or heavy at all.
Skinnygirl Tasty Nutrition Bar: I got the banana oatmeal dark chocolate bar. This was tasty — actually a lot tastier than I expected! While it was very good, I’m not really a bar person. I find them to be not very satisfying — I’d rather have a half cup of plain oatmeal and a banana. I think that if you’re a person that really enjoys bars for snacks or breakfast, give it a try! It doesn’t taste artificial and isn’t too sweet.
Montagne Jeunesse Peel off masks: I love peel-off masks. They remind me of elementary school days. (Anyone else used to put school glue all over your hand so you could peel it off?) I got the Manuka Honey mask. It made my skin feel clean and soft. I like that the masks are a good price so you can pick one up at the store when you are browsing the cosmetics section! I like anything you can try for a good price!
Orgain Organic Nutritional Shake: I’ve recently started using protein shakes occasionally to replace a meal or to drink after a workout. I’ve been very excited to try this out, but with the move, I haven’t stumbled upon it. I thought Target would carry it — and now I know that it’s only at Walgreens or CVS and the few times I’ve been in one of those stores, I wasn’t thinking about looking for a protein shake. I like that it’s completely organic. Although we don’t eat 100% organic, we are constantly trying to do better in that department. It’s higher in calories than my Shakeology, but sometimes I like that option so I stay fuller for a longer period of time. I’ll come back to update this section after I get to my CVS down the road!
