Violet VoxBox Reviews -

I love getting things in the mail. No email or Text can compare  to the thrill I get from opening the mailbox and seeing my name on a letter or package!  Yesterday, I was delighted to receive a box full of goodies compliments of Influenster. I did a video on Instagram and one on YouTube of the unboxing of the Violet VoxBox, but I wanted to do the individual reviews on here.

I first tried my Dark Chocolate SoyJoy bar [Retail $ .99] and was pleasantly surprised at how good it was. I had tried them before about 6 years ago when SoyJoy had a promotion. I wasn't a fan of the taste/texture. Now however, not sure if my tastes have changed but I really enjoyed the one I got with my voxbox! The dark chocolate was just what I was looking for to go with my morning coffee. GMO and nut free and 140 calories make it a great snack for someone like me who can't have peanuts and is looking to stay slim and healthy! :)
The second item I got to try out was the Montagne Jenuesse Clay Spas [Retail $2.49]. The Red Earth Clay Spa mask. When I came home from work, my dear son was ready for a nap so after I put him down, I decided it was the perfect time to test out my mask!  What a glorious occasion it was! The instructions were easy to follow and scent was sweet. The mask was so very refreshing and felt luxurious on my skin. I used to get these types of masks all the time when I was a teenager. It was the highlight of my Friday night...that and scaring the crap out of my brothers that got to see my face covered in some sort of goop! :) I think I will have to make it a habit again. Definitely will be repurchasing this!

While using the mask, I used this bad boy to keep my wild hair out of my face. The Goody Athletique Ouchless Headwrap [Retail $6] is reversible and quick drying. I think the best thing about this is that is really did stay in place! I have the hardest time with most athletic head bands like that. It wasn't too tight either. During this afternoon's workout, I got to try it out in its intended environment and was pleased to see how it held up. Kept my hair in check and didn't slide around!

The next product I want to talk about its the Not Your Mother's Clean Freak refreshing dry shampoo [Retail $5.99] . I have only tried one other brand of dry shampoo and wasn't a fan of it. I was very excited to this one. You already know that I only wash my hair twice a week, so a good dry shampoo is a necessity. The bottle was cute and it smelt so good! It worked like a dream and didn't bother my sensitive scalp. I might have to get a full sized bottle of this when I run out!

My nails are still wet as type this. I am not a bright nail color kind of girl. as least I thought i wasn't. i LOVE this Triple Shine by Sally Hanson in Play Koi [Retail $4.99]. I love the brush shape, is that weird? its not blunt, but rounded so I don't get polish all over my finger. Super shiny and from the one nail i painted over the weekend, mostly chip free (i may have bumped the paint before it was dry. lol). One or two coats of this stuff and you're good to go! I will definitely have to look for more colors soon. :)

 So all this awesome stuff came compliments of Influenster for testing purposes. I have given my honest opinion in the reviews. :)

Ciao for now,
