My First VoxBox! XOXOfeatured


I recently signed up with Influenster after a friend recommended it to me.  I was thrilled when I was chosen to receive a VoxBox full of goodies to review for FREE!  It was really a lot of fun, and I look forward to the next time I get to do it.  This time, I tried out seven different new products.  I found a few things that I will definitely buy for myself.  And I better do it soon, because my trial sizes are running low!

So here’s the skinny.  Here’s what I received, and here’s what I think about the products.

Adore Me lingerie.  (One of my FAVES!)

I was um… SO excited to get this!  Right on time for Valentine’s Day, too.  I got to choose the style I wanted right from the website.  It came in the cutest little box.  When I opened it, my lingerie was wrapped in pink tissue paper, and the inside of the box said, “Hello, Adorable!”  Talk about making you feel special!

The lingerie fit well, was perfectly made, and was very comfortable.  I will definitely buy more.  From panties and bras, to swimwear, to sleepwear (sexy or just sweet and cozy), Adore Me has it all!

So the next time you have a lingerie shower to buy for or you just want something nice for yourself (and yes, you deserve it!) go to the Adore Me website and check it out.  Use my personal referral link, and get your first set of Adore Me lingerie for only $25!

Tide Pods with Febreze, Botanical Rain Scent.

The Tide Pods with Febreze left my clothes smelling wonderful!  That is a must for me.  For a while, I was making my own laundry detergent, and that’s when I discovered that I really wanted my detergent to have a great fragrance.

It’s also important that the fragrance isn’t so overpowering that it irritates my throat.  When I was pregnant with our third child, my allergies kicked into overdrive, and they’ve never gone back!  So I really have to watch what I smell, because some perfumes are just too much for me.  That being said, the Botanical Rain fragrance was sweet and perfect–not too strong.  It was just right.

I will buy Tide Pods again, if it’s on sale and/or I have a good coupon.  Yes, this is my thrifty side speaking.

Skinfix Hand Repair Cream. (Also one of my FAVES!)

Okay, my hands are usually really dry. And rough. And they get cracked, especially in the winter.  I think it’s because I wash them so much when I’m here at home, after every diaper change, every nose wipe, and every {fill-in-the-blank with a germy mom task}.

I could literally tell a difference after using this for just one night.  I put it on before bed, and the next morning my hands felt so smooth.skinfix

After using it for a week and a half pretty consistently (but not religiously), my hands were like new.  Really.  They were soft and my skin was so smooth to the touch.  No more tough, cracked skin!   I’ve never found anything else like it.

At about $18 for a 2 ounce tube, this product is a little pricy but totally worth the money.  Even with my sometimes overpowering thrifty side, I will definitely buy some Skinfix Hand Repair Cream for myself at Target (it is a Target exclusive).

Two Colgate Whitening Products.

Colgate Optic White Toothbrush + Built-in Whitening Pen
This was really great!  The whitening pen fits right inside your toothbrush.  You just pull it out to whiten and put it right back in to store it.  The whitening product leaves a good taste and doesn’t have to be rinsed out.  I definitely made my teeth whiter after just a few uses.  If you are looking for a good whitener, this is a great product to choose.

Colgate Optic White Platinum Express White Toothpaste

I also like the Express White Toothpaste.  It tastes good and does a great job whitening!  I used the two products together, so I got the most bang for my Influenster’s buck.

John Frieda Beach Blonde Collection. (Sea Salt Spray is my new FAVORITE styling product!)

I received the John Frieda Beach Blonde Collection (Shampoo, Conditioner, and Sea Salt Spray).  I have to be honest–I didn’t get to try the Shampoo or Conditioner because I always use color safe shampoo.  I wasn’t sure how my color would handle it, and I didn’t want to chance washing out my color.  (But there’s absolutely no gray under this blondish-brown! {wink})

I tried the Sea Salt Spray when styling my hair, and it was absolutely perfect for the style I wanted.  You spray it on for a tousled, kind-of messy look.  I loved it!  My blonde layers are thanking me for using it.

I will definitely buy this product again!  I actually used it all up because I loved it so much, and it’s now on my shopping list.  Target, here I come. Like, tomorrow.

John Frieda Luxurious Volume 7-Day Volume In-Shower Treatment.

This really did make my hair seem thicker after just one use.  If you really need more volume, give this product a try!  Personally, even though my hair is fine and thin, it’s not a big deal for me.  So I probably won’t buy this for myself.  But, like I said, if that’s what you need, John Frieda’s got it going on!

This whole VoxBox experience was a lot of fun.  I’m glad I got to try out these new products, and I’m even more glad that I found a few new products that I really love!
