Influenster: the #RoseVoxBox Review

*I received these products complimentary from Influenster*
Remember my last review about the Colgate SlimSoft toothbrush? Well lucky me, I got another Influenster VoxBox in the mail! This time it was the #RoseVoxBox and was stuffed full of fun products. They're perfect for the fall and winter and I wouldn't have necessarily tried them otherwise.
Unfortunately, these little biscuits were a crumbled, broken mess despite being surrounded by bubble wrap. Regardless, they were tasty and seriously filled me up! Eating these for breakfast with a cup of coffee and a banana helped me push off lunch until later in the day.
Not my style, to be totally honest. I love a good nail polish color but this sort of ended up being a mess. It gives you step-by-step instructions on how to achieve the "ombre look" that are easy to follow but hard to achieve. Maybe it's because I have short nails or because I didn't apply this as well as I could but the Kiss Gradation nail polish kit isn't something I'm eager to tackle again.
Absolutely LOVE this mascara! It is def my favorite product from this box. It's super easy to apply, doesn't clump, spreads out your lashes, and makes them SO full. I've used it almost every day and I plan on buying it once I run out. Here's a video of me trying it for the first time.

Well, I've had these before - who hasn't?! They are delicious. My only complaint is that there was only one in the bag! They are the perfect little chocolate craving satisfier. 
I am not a lotion person, I'm just not. I don't like how it feels on my skin or how it makes you feel sweaty and sticky and yuck. Vitabath's lotion was pretty thick and sort of heavily scented so I was turned off but hey, that's just me.
This was my first time trying any Dr. Scholl's products and I have to say, I'm pleased! They're very warm and fluffy and make commuting just a little better with their plush comfort. The only problem I had was that they were a little difficult to cut to size but other than that, they're great! (no pic of the inserts but how about a Vine?)

All in all, I was SO happy with this VoxBox and I hope i get another one to review!

Influenster: the Colgate® SlimSoft™ Toothbrush Review

*I received this product complimentary from Influenster*
I'm an Influenster member, which means that if I'm cool enough (or complete enough tasks on the site), I get to try out fun new products and talk about them! I was sent my first VoxBox (fun, bright pink boxes that are chock full of goodies to test out) in early September right after I moved, so this review has sort of slipped my mind.

I'm kind of weird about toothbrushes - I like medium to firm bristles and a little more heft in the handle. By the end of the month, the head of my toothbrush usually resembles a palm tree, parted down the middle with bristles waving side to side and sticking out all over the place. 

When I opened the box and first looked at the Colgate® SlimSoft™ Toothbrush, I was super skeptical. It's thin, it's got these little tiny bristles, and it's PINK (oy). I brought it to work, added it to my junk drawer full of Advil, foundation, napkins, strewn ketchup packets, and lipsticks, and forgot about it. Then a few weeks later, I had some extremely potent garlic hummus with my lunch and desperately needed a brush. Enter: the SlimSoft.

Looks like i judged this book by it's thin, pink cover a little too quickly. The SlimSoft™ rules (that's weird to say about a toothbrush, right?) Those tiny bristles get all up in the nooks and crannies of your teeth and leave them feeling SO clean. I'm not a huge flosser (boooorrring) so this toothbrush really helps with the hard to reach places and the little space in my two front teeth. 

I'm not saying I'm about to throw out my Costco sized package of toothbrushes (though they are Colgate - I am brand loyal!), but I would consider picking the SlimSoft™ instead if it came in a multi-pack. Have you tried it? let me know!
