Well, in the last post I said I’d be doing my first product review. As it turns out, I’ll be doing two product review posts. This is the first one and here we go!
I’m a member of a website called Influenster, which is a site for product reviews and questions and answers about said products. You sign up, take a few surveys about which products you’d like to try and what is best for your lifestyle, then eventually you’ll get an email saying your VoxBox (the package of products for you to try) is on the way! It’s super simple and quite fun.
I received the XO VoxBox, which had quite a few items in it.There were Tide Pods Plus Febreze, Colgate Optic White Toothbrush plus Whitening Pen, Colgate Optic White Toothpaste, John Freida Luxurious Volume 7 Day In-Shower Treatment, John Freida Beach Blonde Collection, and Skinfix Hand Repair Cream. Plus coupons for Lands’ End and Adore Me (I didn’t get to try out either of them).
The Tide Pods smell AMAZING and are super easy to use! You just start the washer, toss them in, fill the washer, and go. The toothbrush was great but the whitening pen didn’t work for me so well. See, my mouth produces a LOT of saliva. Have you ever been around someone that had braces and they suck all their saliva before they talk for some reason? Probably not, considering my dad is the only person I ever heard do that, but I find myself having to suck back all my saliva before I talk or I end up spitting all over people! When I put the whitener on my teeth, it didn’t last long due to the amount of saliva. This issue is also why I can’t use whitening strips. The toothpaste worked extremely well. I didn’t get to use the in-shower treatment for a few reasons. You are supposed blow dry your hair after showering, I have curly hair and for some reason, I do not possess a diffuser. Also, I shower at night and by the end of my shower, I’m just not awake enough to blow dry. The beach blonde collection (consisting of shampoo, conditioner, and sea salt spray) smelled amazing but I have two complaints. Number one, I’m not a blonde (I’m used to not having hair products for redheads though). Number two, the sea salt spray didn’t hold very well, maybe I was under the wrong impression or something. Lastly, the hand repair cream. This stuff is AWESOME. I have a slight case of eczema on my hands and it worked wonders!
Well, that’s all I’ve got to say about that. <- bad Forrest Gump reference. I’ll write another product review post soon, as soon as Little Man tries out all of the new stuff he got from Munchkin. See you later!
