Influenster Sugar ‘N Spice Voxbox 2013

1 Comment

I just received my latest Voxbox in the mail and was so excited to unpack it and discover the goodies I had been sent.  I swear, Influenster must know my personality because all of the items in the box are right up my alley and totally fulfill a need I have.  I haven’t had a chance to use any of the products yet since I just unpacked them but thought I’d introduce them and then I’ll write a review at a later date.

$6.99 for 5.9 oz. container or $3.99 for box of 40 packets

“Nectresse sweetener tastes like sugar but has zero calories per serving! 100% all natural, Nectresse is made primarily from monk fruit combined with other natural sweeteners. ”

I like all natural sweeteners, especially ones that don’t raise the blood sugar and affect insulin levels.

$5.99 for a 20-count box

“Introducing Dickinson’s Original Witch Hazel Oil Controlling Towelettes – The soothing blend of Witch Hazel and aloe on these facial wipes rejuvenates your skin by gently lifting dirt, oil and impurities from you pores while nourishing even the most sensitive skin.  The result is a clean, refreshed and blemish-free complexion even when you’re out and about.

I’m an on-the-go kind of woman so products like these are a total lifesaver.   I frequently have to take a full face of makeup off after shoots and this makes it simple, two wipes in my purse and I’m set.

Vaseline Spray & Go Moisturizer Total Moisture
$7.99 for 6.5 oz. can

“New Vaseline Spray and Go Moisturizer Total Moisture is a continuous spray lotion that moisturizes and absorbs in seconds, and leaves skin feeling instantly soft – not sticky or greasy. ”

I am so excited to try this product I have needed something like it.  As a model it’s important that my skin stays moisturized and looking young, fresh, and healthy.  I have sensitive skin and typically choose to use all natural products.  However, for testing and fun and being grateful for gifts I will be using all of this product.  I’d like to research the ingredients as I’m always curious about that sort of thing but I don’t know if I’ll get around to it before the review.  We’ll see!  The lotion does have fragrance which is negative for me as I won’t be able to use it when I go on modeling gigs.  I hope they make a scent free version as that would be perfect!

Colgate Optic White Regimen
Toothpase: $2.99 for 4oz. tube
Mouthwash: $2.99 for 8 oz. bottle
Toothbrush: $2.99 per brush

“Use the Optic White toothpaste, toothbrush, and mouthwash together for whiter teeth in five days (vs. brushing with an ordinary toothpaste alone).

A bright white smile is important to me and I’m always willing to try something new.  You never know what you might discover! I just finished my tube of Crest 3D White today so I’m going to start my five day challenge tomorrow.  I’ve used Crest 3D White for a few months now and even though it’s not natural I use it because it works.

belVita Breakfast Biscuits
$3.69 for a box of 5 packets of 4 biscuits

“belVita Breakfast Biscuits are made with delicious ingredients and carefully baked to release steady energy that lasts all morning.  They are a good source of Fiber and B-vitamins, contain no high fructose corn syrup, have 18-20 grams of whole gran per 50 gram serving and taste great – perfect for on-the-go!

Again since I’m always on the move easy-to-carry food and nutritious food is important to me as well.  I’m a reactive hypoglycemic so I have to watch my sugar intake and make sure that I eat frequently to keep my blood sugar stabilized.  These biscuits don’t have high fructose corn syrup which is a huge plus.

Please note I received all of these products for Influenster for testing purposes.
