Influenster Sunshine VoxBox Review

I really do love Influenster!  What's more fun than getting a box of free products to try?  Not only do I get to try great products, but by performing easy tasks like snapping pictures and writing reviews, I can get a chance to win more products!  The magic word here is FREE, my friends.  (Therefore, also keep in mind that I will provide my honest reviews for each product.)

Needless to say, I was thrilled to qualify for another VoxBox.  This one is the #sunshinevoxbox, and it was packed with great stuff!  So here's what's in it:

1. Vaseline Intensive Care: Aloe Soothe Spray Moisturizer
I'll be honest, when I first saw the commercial for the spray moisturizer, I was a little skeptical.

It still doesn't work that fast, but it does save some time.  It's easy to spray on, and rub in.  The lotion absorbs quickly, and the aloe is helpful for those pesky summer sunburns.  I had a mild sunburn, and it was nice.  You don't have to rub it in as intensely as other moisturizers which means you spend less time torturing yourself, and you still get to moisturize like you need to!  I do recommend that if you are using this on a tile floor, that you put a towel down and stand on it because it can get a little slippery.  This is a great summer product, but for me, I don't think it would cut it in the winter.

2. Infusium 23 Moisture Replenisher Leave-in Smoothing Creme (Enhanced with Avocado and Olive Oil)
This leave-in conditioner has a nice scent to it.  As of yet, I have not seen a major difference in my hair.  I have used it after combing my hair out from my shower, and when my hair is dry.  I still notice frizz and flyways.  I have long, thick hair, and to be truthful, maybe I just haven't used enough of it yet.  I almost never dry my hair with a hair dryer (especially in summer), and I rarely even style it with heated products (curling iron, straightener) in the summer.  I'm going to say my final opinion on this one is TBD.

3. Dickinson's Original Witch Hazel Refreshingly Clean Cleansing Cloths
I am lazy.  I wash my face in the morning with a skin care regimen, but at night, I use cleansing cloths to remove make up and clean my face.  Since I started using cleansing cloths, I have just used Equate ones (WalMart brand), and I like them a lot.  I really do like these, too.  They leave my face feeling clean and fresh, and while I don't use make up a lot during the summer, I have gotten to test them to take off make up, and they work great.  I've used them to remove make up after getting a shower, and without a shower.  They do not dry out my face.  They have a scent that I'm not thrilled with, but I've actually been getting used to it since I've been using them, and it really doesn't bother me any more.  Dickinson's products are available at WalMart and Walgreens, and since there were coupons for those included in the box, as well, I think I will pick up some more!

4. Blue Diamond Sriracha Almonds
As far as snacks go, nuts are supposed to be a big deal.  I've heard of the Blue Diamond company before, but I've never tried their products.  These almonds were actually pretty good.  I only tried a few bites, and they have just a bit of a kick, but it was nothing overwhelming.  While I can't say I would pick them up again, they were worth a try.  If you're into almonds and/or snacks with a little spice, I'd say these are for you.

5. SinfulColors Nail Polish- Ocean Side
There were a few colors going out in this VoxBox, and I'm thrilled with this one.  It is such a gorgeous shade of blue!  The color goes on smooth and thick.  I used a base coat, 1 coat of SinfulColors, and a top coat.  The first try, I did a mani with only Ocean Side.  (It had been awhile since I hadn't done an accent nail.)  After 5 days, my nails still looked decent:
     Before                                     After 5 Days
I just did this new mani today with an accent nail.  I'm pretty much obsessed with this color.  A friend suggested it would be great with a white anchor as an accent.  If I had that kind of talent, I would totally try that.  I'm lucky I can do that heart thing...

6. Coupon for barkTHINS

Oh my goodness.  These were SO good.  There were a couple of flavors that I could choose from.  I went with the Dark Chocolate Pretzel with Sea Salt.  It took all of my will power to not eat the entire bag at once.  AHHH!  Just thinking about them makes my mouth water.  I have to say, I would definitely be interested in trying other flavors.  Do yourself a favor.  Go buy some of these.  I got mine at Target.

Did anyone else get this VoxBox?  What did you think?  What SinfulColors did you get?  Which barkTHINS did you try?

Oh man, I totally wish I had time to do this! I would love to review free products! Let's face it though, I would never be able to do it in a timely manner and Influenster would fire me. ;-)
