Influenster Sugar and Spice Voxbox

I qualified for the Influenster Sugar and Spice Voxbox!  I've gotten a few voxboxes before and I always have a lot of fun with them.

The size of this box surprised me when it arrived at my door.  It was much larger than previous boxes.

Wow!  Full size products!  I was very excited.  The box contains a sample belVita breakfast biscuits, Colgate Optic White toothpaste, Colgate Optic White mouth wash, Colgate Optic White toothbrush, Vaseline Spray & Go moisturizer, Dickinson's Which Hazel oil controlling towelettes and Nectresse, a no calorie sweetener.  

In past Voxboxes I've gotten mostly sample sizes and four or five at a time.  This box has six full size products and one sample!  Influenster is really stepping up their game. :)

First I tried the Colgate trio.  I love that they included three products that can be used together!  I opened my Optic White toothbrush and have been using it twice a day along with my Optic White tooth paste and mouthwash (all in sparkling mint flavor).  I just finished using my Whitening Lightning tooth kit so I want to make sure my pearly whites stay bright.  I really like the toothpaste, it foams up nicely and the toothbrush has a built in gum cleaner on the back of the brush.  

It has a nice massaging feeling.  The mouth wash is alcohol free but still very strong!  Sometimes I have a hard time keeping it swishing for the full 30 seconds. I feel like this is a good sign it is working great!  I love the trio and will probably continue purchasing these products when I'm out.  

I'm loving everything in my box so far but Dickinson's Original Witch Hazel oil controlling towelettes is where I had a dislike. :(  The box opens to reveal individually wrapped towelettes (20 per carton).  To test them out I threw a bunch of the little packets in my gym bag.  After working out I opened up the packet which was easy with a small tear incision.  I wiped it over my face and arms to clean up and cool off before going home.  I really like how the wipes make my skin feel.  It is a clean without being dehydrated and leaves my skin feeling soft.  However, as soon as I opened the packet this overwhelming smell hit me.  I've decided it is a mix of black licorice and alcohol.  Like if I went to a bar, and ordered black licorice vodka shot, that is what these wipes smell like.  The smell is so overpowering for me I just don't think I could every buy these again after my test box runs out.  If you like black licorice then definitely try these out!  I just can't get over the smell.  

Nectresse is a natural no calorie sweetener from the makers of Splenda.  This sweetener comes from monk fruit and this box contains 40 packets.  One paket is the equivalent of two teaspoons of sugar.  So far I've used it in tea.  The sweetness is very light and isn't overpowering or fake tasting.  I definitely like that it comes from a natural source and isn't a manufactured fake sweetener.  I've been trying to eat clean recently and have been using Truvia, another natural no calories sweetner.  So far I think that Truvia and Nectresse are pretty similar.  I am going to try a recipe for apple chips where you slice thin pieces of apple and bake them in the oven.  I wills sprinkle some Nectresse and cinnamon over the top and let you know how they taste!    

Now my favorite!  Vaseline Spray & Go moisturizer is a non-greasy, total moisture spray that is advertised to moisturize in seconds so you can put your clothes right on afterwards.  I like to moisturize with lotion after I shower to keep my skin hydrated.  Usually I spend several minutes after my shower dispensing greasy lotion on my hands and rubbing it all over my legs and arms.  Vaseline Spray & Go is a GOD SEND! The aerosol can dispensens the moisturizer very quickly and easily in a mist.  Once its on rub it once or twice to massage it in and you are golden!  It isn't greasy or sticky like mannnny lotions can be and I really can throw my pajamas on afterwards without feeling like a greased pig.  I have been using this after every shower and I am definitely, definitely purchasing this after my bottle runs out.  It makes my before bed routine fun, clean, quick and easy.  Here is a video of the Vine I made showcasing Vaseline Spray & Go moisturizer.

Finally are the belVita Breakfast Biscuits.  I have seen belVita before in the store but never actually tried it.  I got one biscuit packet in cinnamon brown sugar.  There are four biscuits in each packet.  I ate them straight out of the wrapping and they were great!  I have so many ideas.  You could crumble it up and put it in your cereal, grab it on the go, spread some peanut butter between two biscuits for a quick snack.  The possibilities are endless and delicious!  As a plus belVita breakfast biscuits include 18-20 grams of whole grain, 3 grams of dietary fiber and are a good source of four B vitamins and iron.  With my clean eating I think this could be a great product to invest in!
