Sweetheart VoxBox 2013 <3

Influenster is a new site I just signed up for a few months ago! I signed on shortly after seeing people raving about VoxBoxes and showing off goodies and sharing the news that they were rating things! Soon after joining (and realizing I had a decent score yay me!), I was asked if I wanted this box! I said yes and soon found out I was one of the lucky ones who received this VoxBox! It’s my first one and I can easily say I was totally psyched! Here’s an Instagram pic I got when I first opened by box! It is called the Sweetheart VoxBox 2013 and was full of epic goodies to try out!

I was excited! And maybe the pic cut out most of the Skinny Girl bar I got, but never fear I still had it!

First up I took out the Olay Fresh Effect, which included the cleanser AND the Contour cleansing system thingie. It is really easy to use! It made my face feel very refreshed and nice. The system even included a battery! I love it when items that need batteries come with some, I don’t like searching throughout the house LOL. I don’t have a pic of it in use unfortunately (my face is NOT camera friendly lately!) but it was really nice to use. The cleanser did not smell weird either! Some cleansers and acne stuff just smell funny and leave your skin feeling weird. This Olay stuff did not!

Next item up was the Not Your Mother’s Beach Babe Texturizing Sea Salt Spray. I normally don’t do anything fancy with my hair. Just throw it up into a ponytail and call it good! So I gave this a try before a shower just to see how it went. It defitinitely gives you beach waves! I looked like I had just stepped off of the beach after playing in the water for a while! I don’t think I’ll ever buy this product thought, I really have no interest in making my hair like that. I usually cannot wait to get back and shower and get all the salt water out of my hair and the sand off me.

Now I have to say, the Secret Clinical Strength Stress Response deodorant was my favorite item. It’s so hot in AZ, I mean c’mon it’s the middle of the desert, so finding the right stuff that works for you is hard sometimes.  I find that this one works really well! We had some really hot days lately and this deodorant really worked well. It smells like citrus too which is honestly a very nice smell 🙂 My one gripe? It’s more on the expensive side, so unless I have coupons, I will not be able to get this. I really recommend this though for those who are able to afford it or find coupons! When I went back to my old deodorant it just didn’t feel the same. I used this when I had my craft fair, and I was outside all day (I have a sunburn/tan to prove it!) and it did not leave me stinky or feeling like I needed to reapply some quick and spritz myself with body spray!

The SkinnyGirl Daily On-The-Go Bars are pretty good! Only 180 calories and it appears they come in a lot of different flavors! I got a blueberry one, which was really yummy. It was about the same size as average granola bars are, and had yogurt on one side. It was a good snack. You can get a pack of 5 for $9.99 which is my only complaint about this bar. Again, unless I have coupons I will not be getting these! They’re comparable to the Quaker Yogurt granola bars which are 6/under $4 at Walmart. So all in all, it was yummy, but too expensive for this girl to get on a regular basis!

This VoxBox was super fun and I really enjoyed testing out all these products! I can’t wait to see what they send out next 🙂 Thank you Influenster for sending this box!

Q’s Creations

I ordered a custom wallet from Q’s Creations and it is simply wonderful! I have not been able to find a wallet of this quality in stores anywhere! It has all the pockets and things that I look for in a wallet, and included with it was a strap so that it can become a clutch! She very kindly included a fabric flower brooch, which is simply adorable. I love the quality of her items and the fact I was able to customize it fully to my liking. She put up with my crazy demands and had my product done in less than a week! Shipping was incredibly fast and I all around enjoyed this transaction!

Here are a few pictures of said wallet and of the brooch.

You can find Q’s Creations at the following locations 🙂
