Influenster product reviews: Vitality VoxBox

The biggest VoxBox I have gotten yet. It didn't fit in my mailbox, so I had to go pick it up at the leasing office!

First Degree Advanced Burn Cream
I didn't actually find a use for this yet, I must admit. I don't get burned often. But I'll now be ready when I do!

Overall recommendation: undecided.

Playtex Sport Fresh Balance
Oh, my wow. These are awesome! I used to stay away from Playtex because of the static-cling effect of the thin plastic wrappers. I once left a bathroom with a tampon wrapper stuck to my pants. Embarrassing! I've gotta say that I'm SUPER impressed with the new and improved design. Awesome tear-away wrapper with thicker plastic that you can easily slide the applicator back in. The tampons themselves are great. Knotted strings for easy removal. (Sorry for the graphic descriptors, guys.) I will start buying these from now on!

Overall recommendation: would DEFINITELY recommend.

Elizabeth Arden FLAWLESS FUTURE Powered by Ceramide Caplet Serum
Eh, not sure how I feel about this. It feels nice on my skin, but I don't see any major complexion changes for the better. At $60 a bottle, I can't see myself ever buying this. I loved getting to test it for free, but I don't think it's the product for me.

Overall recommendation: would not recommend.

Pure Leaf Iced Tea
LOVE. I'm a huge tea freak. This tea is pretty much the only bottled tea I'll drink because it doesn't taste watered down. I buy this all the time in a pinch without time to make my own and will continue to do so!

Overall recommendation: would 100% recommend.

Softlips Cube
I adore this little lip gloss cube. Normally with a little tub of gloss like this, you have to stick your germy finger in and apply it with your finger. Um, not with this. It's AWESOME. You unscrew the lid, and get this.....the gloss is a little half sphere that's attached to the lid! So, it's in your hand, and you just run it across your lips. The The fresh mint flavor is delish. Feels so cool and soft against my lips. It's got SPF and all kinds of moisturizing benefits. I LOVE this product. I also got 2 coupons in my VoxBox, so I will be buying this in the other flavors for sure!

Overall recommendation: would definitely recommend.

Bikini Ready Energy Gummies
I'm not too hip on the gummy vitamin trend. They're typically overpriced, and they "get you" by making 1 daily serving 2 or more gummies. That way, you're eating more when there are fewer per bottle anyway (compared to capsules or traditional forms of vitamins). Wasteful, in my opinion. I tske my typical multivitamin at night because taking it in the day always makes me super nauseous. The Bikini Ready "Energy Gummies" kind of baffle me. Why do I need a dose of caffeine in a vitamin? Caffeine on my morning stomach along with vitamins sounds like a giant tummyache for me. No, thanks! I'll keep my cup of AM coffee after I eat breakfast and stick to my nighttime vitamin regimen.

Overall recommendation: would not recommend.

I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes. Totally free. Totally mine to keep. So easy! Thanks for my #VitaVoxBox, +Influenster!!!
