Influenster is so much fun!
It feels like forever since I’ve received a Vox Box from Influenster. But after several months I finally received the Sunshine Vox Box which contains everything you see here. If you would like to receive boxes like this for free, you can learn more about how it works here. Influenster is so much fun because their boxes are chock full of goodies ranging from snacks, to cosmetics, and sometimes some really cool gadgets.
If you REALLY want to hear my voice, you can see a video of me opening the Sunshine Vox Box. I know it’s not THAT exciting. 🙂
Onto the reviews…
I received all products complimentary in exchange for my honest review.
I have really fried out hair that is naturally wavy. All the coloring and heat styling over the years have really taken it’s toll. I almost never leave the house without flat-ironing my hair because if I let it air dry, it turns into a big poofy ball of frizz. But I put a dollop in my hands and ran it through my freshly washed hair and let it air dry to see what it would do. My hair turned into soft waves without the halo of frizz that usually follows me everywhere I go. I had not washed it the following day, but proceeded to flat iron my hair after wearing it natural. It took the iron beautifully and made my hair silky and straight. I didn’t even need to use any more product, although you can use it on dry hair to tame fly-aways and strays. Infusium is a trusted name in hair products and I highly recommend it.
Dickinson’s Cleansing Cloths
I have been a faithful user of Dickenson’s Witch Hazel for several years. I use it as a toner. So when I received this package of Dickenson’s Witch Hazel Refreshingly Clean Face Cloths I thought this would be a convenient way to refresh and tone my skin. I actually prefer to use it first thing in the morning to wipe away the sweat and oil that accumulates on my skin overnight. This is not the same as a make-up remover, so you do not want to get it in your eyes. But it is a nice way to whisk away the daily grime and grease and leaves your skin tingly and fresh. Available at Walgreens and many big box stores like Target and Walmart.
Sinful Colors Nail Polish
I am a big fan of Sinful Colors because they have some really unique shades and are super affordable. In my neck of the woods you can get a bottle of Sinful Colors Nail Polish for around $2 a pop. The shade I received in this Vox Box is called Southern Belle. It’s like a Barbie Hot Pink. It’s really cute and so versatile. This nail polish dries really fast too. You can expect your manicure to last about a week, but the product is so inexpensive, you can try out a bunch of colors and switch it up often. Available at Walgreens and other retailers.
Blue Diamond Sriracha Almonds
Did you know that almonds are a great way to curb your appetite? They are fattening but they are really healthy. If you limit the amount you eat, they can really help when the hunger pangs hit. I like to keep a small box of almonds in my desk at work for when my blood sugar crashes between lunch and dinner. I eat exactly 10 of them, which amounts to around 80 calories. (Yes I actually count the almonds and the calories). Hot spices are also supposed to help with metabolism. So these Sriracha Almonds have the best of both worlds
But I am not a fan of spicy. I’m a big wuss, I know. In fact when I saw that these almonds were Sriracha flavored I instantly went ugh! But I tentatively tried one and was pleasantly surprised. It was spicy, yes, but it wasn’t too bad. Actually it was very tasty and I really liked them. Good thing it was free or else I never would have tried it. But if you like almonds and you like spicy, you should check them out.
Vaseline® Intensive Care™ Aloe Soothe Spray Moisturizer
I am not a big moisturizer person. I just don’t like the way it feels when I put it on. And in the hot climate of Phoenix, AZ where the temperatures get up to like a million degrees, it makes me feel sticky and gross. But this spray moisturizer from Vaseline Intensive Care is different. It feels so light going on and is non greasy and sinks into your skin quickly. And the smell is so refreshing and clean. It’s really fun and easy to apply. You just spray and go. The bottle is huge too! I definitely recommend it if you are not a fan of moisturizer but have dry skin in need of a little TLC. You can find this moisturizer at drugstores and big box stores like Target and Walmart. Click here for a coupon and save 50 Cents off!
BarkTHINS Dark Chocolate with Pumpkin Seeds
I like trying out interesting new flavor combinations. I saw the other flavors of BarkTHINS but I was really intrigued by this one with chocolate and pumpkin seeds and knew immediately that I wanted to try it. I would have never thought that they would taste so delicious together! I shared the package with my husband and son. They just thought it was chocolate with peanuts. My husband was shocked to know it was actually pumpkin seeds. And they were just as surprised at how great it tasted. I love the dark chocolate and the pieces of chocolate are so thin and light and easy to eat. I keep my bag in the fridge and to me it tastes even better! BarkTHINS is also available in many other cool flavors like chocolate with pretzel, chocolate and blueberry, and chocolate with almonds. You can find them at Target.
