Last month I received the Vow Voxbox from influenster full of products to sample and review. This box was filled with items for a summer of weddings. We already attended three this year and have one more to attend this fall! This is what was in the box:You receive a handy card detailing each item you received and the retail price.
First, I tried the nail polish in Barracuda blue. It went on very thin and took about three coats for me to get full coverage. I wasn’t impressed at first due to needing so many coats but after four weeks of wear with no chipping I’ve changed my mind. This picture is after four weeks of wearing the polish without any touch ups. I like a low maintenance beauty routine so I appreciated not having to reapply for a month! I really liked the baby blue color as well. I was excited to try out the Olay Regenerist Luminous tone perfecting cream. It reminded me of a fancy night cream my mom would use. I have oily and acne prone skin so I only used this at night. In the morning I used my usual tea tree oil lotion. I was really impressed with this lotion! It didn’t feel greasy once applied and it didn’t make my skin break out which is a huge plus in my book! The instructions said to also apply it to your neck and I don’t normally apply lotion to my neck area. Do other people normally do this? I did apply it to my neck and it seemed like I was pampering myself. I like to use this after swimming. The chlorine really dries out my skin and it absorbs this lotion as soon as it is applied. It feels really nice on my skin and a little goes a long way, I only use 1-2 pea sized dollops each time. It has a pleasant smell as well. I’d say this was my favorite item in the box.
I tried the EcoTools facial sponge and wasn’t that impressed. It may be because I use a Clarisonic brush and there’s no way a sponge is going to compare to the electronic brush. It didn’t really make my skin feel any cleaner or more exfoliated than usual and I felt like it left a weird film on my face the first few times so I had to go back and rewash my face. The sponge also took a long time to dry on the sink which I think would leave to gunk marks on the counter top.
I was pumped to receive the Tide to go pen as I already have an arsenal of them and love them for on the go fixes! I eat a few bars of chocolate every day at work after lunch and it never fails that I find a bit of melted chocolate on my clothes at some point. The pen is perfect at removing those stains quickly!
I also received a can of Pure Silk moisturizing shave cream. I don’t normally use shaving cream and just use lather from my body wash and pouf but I was excited to give this a try. It smelled amazing and I could feel the razor glide more smoothly over my skin compared to my usual method. My legs felt super smooth after. Using shaving cream does take extra time though compared to body wash so it’s not something I’d use every day. I’d use it when I felt like taking the time to pamper myself or if I had a special date night to go out on.
Overall, it was a fun batch of items to test out and I will continue to use some of the items in the future.
I received this box for free in exchange for my honest review of the products. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
