I posted a week or two ago the most recent VoxBox that I received from Influenster. Now that I have had the chance to properly sample everything, I want to share with you all how this went.
I am really devoting a lot more time into making my presence be known on Influenster by writing multiple reviews everyday and answering other user’s questions. I am hoping that one day in the near future I will finally get chosen for a beauty product only VoxBox! Don’t get me wrong– I am grateful to have the opportunity to be able to sample foods and household products, but that’s not my interest. At the end of the day, I am a beauty JUNKIE so that is what my goal is!
Cole’s Tasty Middles
Included in the VoxBox were two coupons to redeem to get two boxes of the new Cole’s brand “Tasty Middles.” I decided to get the “plain bagel with cream cheese” and “plain bread and 5 cheese.” They are essentially bread with a creamy cheesy filling, and you can either pop them in the microwave for about 2 minutes, or oven bake them for 7-9 minutes. To be on the safe side, I decided to oven bake them the first time and microwave the next time. They tasted better out of the microwave in my opinion. The plain bagel and cream cheese are my favorite of the two! The bagel was so soft, and the cream cheese was perfectly warm and melted inside. The plain bread with 5 cheese was just ok, and made me think of a grilled cheese sandwich. I love that they are small and are ready to eat within a matter of minutes! I loved the bagel ones so much that I have been buying them nonstop and having them at work for lunch. Cole’s also recently put out a new flavor which is “french toast bagel and cream cheese” and UMM that sounds so delicious that I am going to be looking for them! The only place that sells them around me is Walmart, so that’s the only downside to loving these is that I have to go inside the packed Walmart to get them.
There were two sample packets of the new Gain Botanicals laundry detergent in the box. I received the scents “White Tea & Lavender” and “Orange Blossom Vanilla.” Also included was a $1 off at Target. I have been a long time loyal Tide detergent user for years now, so swaying my likes and trusting in a different detergent is sometimes hard to do. I actually really loved the scents of these detergents, my favorite being the white tea and lavender. They smelled awesome going into the wash, but after drying my clothes I couldn’t smell it anymore. I think that if they made a liquid fabric softener in these scents or some kind of scent boosting pellets I would definitely use more of this in the future.
Scored a free tub of Country Crock butter spread from a coupon in the box. There isn’t much I can really say about this, I rarely ever use it and when I do I use it to make grilled cheese sandwiches. It was nice getting it for free to have.
Ok let’s get to the good stuff…
I received a tub of Coconut Lime Body Butter from Tree Hut to try. Now I really love this scent! It reminds me of a day at the beach, and the creamy richness of the butter just melts into my skin. It is a very thick cream and is unlike any other body creams I have ever used before. I usually use The Body Shop’s Shea Body Butter tubs or the original Nivea Creme, but after trying this stuff out, I think I am going to make a change. Plus it costs a considerable amount less than The Body Shop! I like to rub this on my feet after my shower because I hate dry feeling feet (lol) and this makes everything nice and soft.
This 10-in-1 hair primer is a repeat product that I received in my very first Oasis VoxBox back in August. I love the warm scent it has and makes my hair blow dry a lot faster. Also I feel like it has great heat protection when straightening because my hair feels softer and healthier, not to mention shinier! My daughter also loves to use this on her thick, long hair before she braids it because it makes the braid shinier and stronger feeling!
Another repeat! I also received this very sample in the Oasis Box! But I’m not mad because this stuff smells like absolute heaven! This is part of the Vera Wang Embrace collection. It is a very fresh floral scent with sandalwood tones which makes me feel elegant and classy while wearing it. I love all things sandalwood. This is the “Green Tea and Pear Blossom” scent, and I feel like this will be my next perfume purchase! I love that it lasts a while after putting it on, and sometimes at work I will get compliments on how good it smells. Winner for me!
Overall I am happy that I was given the opportunity to review the products in this campaign. I think its fun trying out new things and finding new favorites. Even though I don’t really LOVE getting food items, like the butter, I feel like its something I can work towards and things like that keep me going! I love being motivated to complete the tasks to be able to unlock brand badges and work towards getting more boxes- hopefully that beauty box will goal will be a reality in the future!
