Before I went home for the holidays, I got a lovely Tinsel Voxbox in the mail from Influenster! I wasn’t expecting it to arrive until the new year so it was definitely a pleasant surprise.

The box came with a variety of assorted goodies. Let’s dive in!

Vera Wang Embrace – Green Tea and Pear Blossom: I’ve never owned any Vera Wang fragrances, but this one is a very interesting scent combo. I can definitely smell the pear more than I can smell the green tea, but I don’t see that as a problem, necessarily.

Nautica Blue Sail: I’ve bought the one ounce version of this for my dad as a gift in the past. I like that it’s not an overpowering cologne smell. It’s just enough to smell like you took some time to freshen up.

Eva NYC Freshen Up Dry Shampoo: Dry shampoo doesn’t really work well on my coarse hair, so I’m giving this to my roommate. Hopefully she finds it more useful than I will.

Eva NYC Forget Me Knot Dry Conditioner: See above.

Luscious Pout Maker Lip Contour Crayon (Queen Bee): I was kind of afraid to try this color because it looks very bright and loud, but it turns out that Queen Bee really compliments my skin tone. I also love the fact that it’s a subtle mix or bright red and hot pink. I can see myself wearing this regularly.

Gold Bond Ultimate Radiance Renewal: This is the most soothing cream for the hands and for your nose! It feels and smells amazing. The coconut oil, African shea butter, and cocoa butter mix together to make such a beautifully nourishing cream. I can’t believe they send me a full size tube!

7th Heaven Charcoal Peel-Off Mask: I absolutely love these masks! They’re perfect for a winter night in. I usually put it on right before hopping into the shower so I can take it off while I bathe. So good!

Overall, I love the Pout Maker Lip Contour Crayon in the shade Queen Bee and the Gold Bond Ultimate Radiance Renewal. Both of those items are going to get used a lot this winter.

Ivy VoxBox Review

Back again with a new VoxBox!

I was super excited when I opened the Ivy VoxBox I got from Influenster a few weeks ago. I’ve been getting a lot of customized boxes from them the last few times, so this was a pleasant little mix of random products. There was even some candy thrown in!

This VoxBox contained Trolli Sour Brite Crawlers, two ChapStick DUOs (one in berry sorbet shimmer and another in refreshing watermelon + strawberry kiwi), a Nubian Heritage African Black Soap Facial Cleansing Bar Soap, a Gillette Venus Swirl, and 7th Heaven Foot Soak & Lotion. Very exciting.

Let’s get to the review, shall we?

1. Trolli Sour Brite Crawlers. I ate them all in one shot last week and then I felt guilty. They were just so good. The perfect amount of sour, in my opinion.

2. ChapStick DUO, berry sorbet shimmer & refreshing watermelon + strawberry kiwi. Okay, these are the coolest thing ever. I love the refreshing watermelon! You can attach these to other flavors to make the DUO, which I love because you can carry two flavors along in your makeup bag at once. They smell freaking amazeballs and provide a ton of moisture.

I stuck refreshing watermelon and strawberry kiwi together, then opted to put the former on my lips. Tastes DELISH.

3. Nubian Heritage African Black Soap Facial Cleansing Bar Soap. I’ve heard really great things about this brand, so I’m excited to try this face soap when I’m done with my current tube of Olay Facial Foaming Cleanser. Continue reading
