Sugar & Spice Vox Box Review

Sugar & Spice Vox Box from Influenster

Who doesn't love free stuff??

I was really excited to get my first Vox Box from Influenster a couple weeks ago.**

For any of you who don't know about Influenser, it's a community of "invited trendsetters" who give opinions of products and experiences. Basically, they send you stuff, you review it and share it with your networks and the overall Influenster network.

I was really excited to join because I LOVE trying out new products. I am always that person that grabs the Sunday paper for the coupon section. Not for the coupons, as I have never even used a coupon - ever. I grab it to review all the new products out there because I am a new product junkie. And the saddest thing, I married an even bigger product junkie so you can only imagine what a Target haul looks like in our house!

So when I found out I was getting a Vox Box, I was super happy. A week later, it showed it and I was really excited to review the contents. Unlike my other box subscriptions, this box was free so even if you only like one thing, it's worth it. Shoot, you don't even have to like anything...at least it's mail!

As always, I wanted to make sure I used all the items before writing a review so now that it's been a couple of weeks, here goes...

Sugar & Spice Vox Box from Influenster - Colgate Optic White

Colgate Optic White: To be honest, I have tried 2 of 3 of these before. The toothpaste is really good. I am not sure if it works but I liked using it. The mouthwash, however, is a different story. I have a very hard time with the taste that I am not sure I can even test whether or not it is worth it. My husband is toughing it out, though, so we will see how that goes! The toothbrush, I haven't used it yet...it will accompany me on my next trip so I don't have to bring my SonicCare.

Sugar & Spice Vox Box from Influenster - Vaseline Spray and Go

Vaseline Spray and Go Lotion: I was so happy to get this because I saw it in Target and almost bought it. I have to say that I love it. It is light and easy to use. I don't feel too sticky after using it and I will definitely be buying this when it runs out. However, I am a fan of the Aloe version so I will get the green one instead. If you are looking for a light body moisturizer, definitely try this out!


Sugar & Spice Vox Box from Influenster - Bel Vita Biscuits

belVita Breakfast Biscuits: I really liked the taste of these. They taste just like an oatmeal cookie and who doesn't want a cookie for breakfast. It does have whole grains which is good but it has too much sugar for me and is very carb heavy. But for on the go, every once and while, sure!

Sugar & Spice Vox Box from Influenster - Dickinson's Towelettes

Dickinson's Witch Hazel Towelettes: These confuse me because I love them but I don't love the smell of them. They work really well, make my skin feel really clean - esp after a workout. However, part of feeling fresh and clean is the scent and these do not have that going for them. Sure, they are Witch Hazel and that is what you are smelling but to me, it smells like cheese. Gross. If they could put in some natural essential oils or scents (mint, lavender, cucumber, etc.) it would be so much better! But I have a bunch of these and will use them all. They are already in my purse, in my car and at my desk!


Sugar & Spice Vox Box from Influenster - Nectresse

Nectresse: This came at the perfect time! I was out of Splenda but had also recently decided I wanted to make the move to more natural sweeteners (agave, truvia, etc). I have used these in tea, lemon water, greek yogurt and homemade hot chocolate. It was great in everything. It is not as sweet as Splenda but that just means an additional packet. No big deal. I will use these up and buy more.

So that is my review. As I said, I really liked this box and hope to receive more in the future! And I have a new favorite drug store lotion and new sweetener so they did their job! :)

Have you tried any of these products? What new products have you tried recently?


**I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes but the opinions expressed are 100% my own.

  8. I've seen that spray lotion around a lot lately and have been wanting to give it a try. I hate when lotions get sticky and heavy, sounds like this one steers clear of that!
    Isn’t That Charming.
