February 2013 Sweetheart VoxBox review for Influenster
Hey all! Today for you, I have a review on the February 2013 Sweetheart VoxBox i received from Influenster for complimentary testing.
So in my box, this is what i received!
Olay's Fresh Effects Va-Va-Vivid Power Contoured Cleansing system, Skinnygirl Daily On The Go granola bar in greek yogurt blueberry crisp, Not Your Mother's Beach Babe sea salt texturizing spray and Secret Clinical Strength Deodorant.
I REALLY enjoyed the Va Va Vivid cleansing system! It did a wonderful job to reduce shine and best part, was that the battery operated, vibrating scrub brush wasn't abrasive but still did an excellent job sloughing off dead skin. I would DEFINITELY recommend this to anyone looking for a new cleansing system. It had a nice citrus smell and didn't irritate my skin at all.
Skinnygirl On the Go bars are great! If you're looking for a low calorie, high fiber and filling granola bar, these are the bars for you! At 180 calories, with 8 grams of protein and 5 grams of fiber, you can't go wrong. I usually don't care for greek yogurt or blueberry flavored foods but this was surprisingly good! I would definitely recommend these if you are on the market for a healthier granola bar.
This deodorant, Secret Clinical strength, is hands down, one of the BEST deodorants i have ever used...and i've used A LOT in my day between my military days and living in very hot climates like California, Florida and most recently, New Mexico. I spend a lot of time outside in the summer and let's face it, EVERYONE sweats. This deodorant is one of the best smelling, strong and long lasting deodorants i have ever used. I used to carry around a stick of deodorant in my purse at all time for freshening up throughout the day, but since using this, i haven't had to reapply it once! I will be buying this over and over and will recommend it to ANYONE in search of a good deodorant!
I recently discovered the Not Your Mother's brand and was really excited to see that this beach babe sea salt texturizing spray was included in my voxbox! I have tried other brands of texturizing spray, but this was one of the better ones i have used. It left my hair soft and truly looking like i had spent the day frolicking in the waves at the beach. My ONLY complaint is that it doesn't taste very good, haha. I live in a very windy city and on the days i used it, when the wind would blow my hair into my mouth, all it tasted was salt! Now i guess tasting salt is better than tasting chemicals...so i won't complain too much :) I would definitely recommend it to someone who is looking for a texturizing spray! Below are some pictures of when i did my tests of it. Wet on top, dry on bottom.
I REALLY enjoyed being apart of this experience as it was my first time. I loved all the products and will be on the lookout for them to be on the shelves here locally, though the only one i've seen so far is the sea salt spray..hoping the others will find their way here soon!
I hope you enjoyed learning about these products and will be curious to try them too!
