A couple weeks ago, I got my Sugar ‘n Spice VoxBox in the mail from Influenster and am very excited to share my reviews with you!
Dickinson’s® Original Witch Hazel Oil Controlling Towelettes $5.99 for a 20 Count Box
I first used these towelettes after one of my morning workouts and I love the refreshing feel that it gave. It removed the sweat and dirt from my face very well and they come individually wrapped so they are easy enough to throw into your purse, work bag or gym bag. I also used it to remove my makeup at the end of the day and it worked really great for that as well.
Overall Grade A
Splenda NECTRESSE™ No Calorie Sweetener $6.99 for 5.9 oz container
When I first saw the Splenda Nectresse in my VoxBox, I was intrigued to say the least. I thought “A no calorie sweetener made from Monk Fruit? This is either going to be really good or really nasty” After I tasted it, my conclusion was it is really, really good! It’s very sweet and doesn’t leave that aftertaste that other no calorie sweeteners do. It actually has a hint of sweetness that taste like an orange, but I am guessing that is the taste of the monk fruit. I made Chocolate Chip Mini Cheesecakes using Nectresse. They turned out wonderful! You can view the recipe here.
Overall Grade: A+
Vaseline® Spray & Go® Moisturizer $7.99
The idea behind the new Vaseline Spray and Go Moisturizer is that you can spray it on, rub it in really quick and be on your merry way. All of that I found to be true, however, if your skin tends to be dry or extremely dry, this is not the product for you. Since my skin tends to be on the dry side, I kept having to spray and spray to achieve the level of moisturizing I was looking for. I like the concept, but it’s just not the product for me.
Overall Grade: C
belVita Breakfast Biscuits $3.69 for 5 packs of 4 biscuits
When I saw these in my VoxBox I got very excited! I have had these before, and I love, love, love them! They taste like cookies, but are packed with healthy goodness. In 4 biscuits, there are 18-20 grams of whole grain, 3 grams of dietary fiber, a good source of four B vitamins and iron. They come in 5 tasty flavors: Golden Oat, Blueberry, Apple Cinnamon, Cinnamon Brown Sugar, and Chocolate. As a very busy mom, these are great for on the go and because they taste good, kids will like them too! I encourage you to try them! You will like them!
Overall Grade: A+
Colgate Optic White Regimen $2.99 for each item
Having never used any of these products before, I decided to take a one month challenge with the Optic White product line. For the month of April, I am using all 3 products twice daily. I took a picture of my teeth on April 1, and will take one April 30 and compare the results side by side. The site claims that using the products will get you whiter teeth in 5 days. So I am interested in the results after 30 days. Stay tuned for an update!
UPDATE May 5, 2013: I didn’t see a significant improvement in the whiteness of my teeth from the Crest products I was using before trying Colgate Optic White.
Overall Grade: C
