Holiday VoxBox opening!
X Out Wash-In Treatment (a bonus product "based on badges and demographics")
From the Card: "The makers of Proactiv, America's number one acne system, announce the launch of a unique one-step Wash-in Treatment that washes powerful breakout fighting medicine into pores to help kill bacteria that causes pimples and treat existing ones while moisturizing to protect the skin. With no parabens or sulfates, this product is suitable for all skin types."
My First thoughts: At first I was really confused by the "Wash-in" thing...but as soon as I read the product info I understood. It's a wash, mask and spot treatment in one. While I don't have very much acne at all really, I am excited to see if this helps what I do have.
Montagne Jeunesse Face Mask in Strawberry Souffle
From the card: "Montagnue [sic] Jeunesse's face masks are jam packed with the most delicious natural ingredients and are bursting with luscious juicy fragrances. Influensters will receive one of the following flavors: Strawberry Souffle, Cucumber Peel Off, Passion Peel Off, Dead Sea Mud, Fruit Smoothie."
My first thoughts: I always see these in stores and despite buying several as gifts over the years, I have never used one before. I just finished up finals so I will be using these in a "spa day" soon.
Softsoap Coconut Scrub bar soap
From the card: Renew your skin with NEW Softsoap® Coconut Scrub bar soap. Enriched with crushed coconut extract, this bar soap gently exfoliates to renew your skin's surface, while helping retain natural moisture for soft, supple skin. Also comes in two other exotic fragrances: Juice Pomegranate & Mango Infusions and Sweet Honeysuckle & Orange Peel."
My first thoughts: I am normally a body wash kind of girl, but I have been considering trying a bar soap for a while, since my boyfriend uses the white Dove bars and smells amazing. I find it really interesting that it is a scrub bar, not just a normal smooth soap. Luckily I'm almost done with the body wash I have now and can use one of these within a week.
Mentos Pure Fresh Gum
From the card: We're sure you know Mentos, but did you know they have a sugarfree gum? Whether it's before a holiday party, date or meeting, pop Mentos Pure Fresh Gum for a quick refresh! The crunchy outer shell conceals a green tea extract core that provides an immediate burst of coolness for long-lasting fresh breah. Its unique container keeps gum protected in your purse!
My first thoughts: I may or may not be chewing a piece right now...it is pretty darn good!!! I love the crunchy outer shell!
LARABAR in Coconut Cream
From the card: Made from only 2-9 ingredients, each LÄRABAR is a delicious blend of just fruits, nuts and spices. Pure and simple, just as nature intended. Larabar comes in 19 delicious flavors!"
My first thoughts: I am constantly on the lookout for yummy and good for me snack bars, as some days I have class for three to five hours straight. This definitely seems like it fits the bill.
New York Color Liquid Lip Shine in Nude York City
From the card: "Straight from the city that never sleeps, New York Color's Liquid Lipshine is uptown style at a down-to-earth price. With pure pigments that create a 3-D gloss effect and vitamin E that provides shine and moisture, this product is perfect to keep lips looking and feeling fabulous this season. Comes in 10 shades from neutral nude, to berries & fuchsias."
My first thoughts: NYC has a soft spot in my heart. I remember their roll-on clear glosses from when I was in elementary school! I'm also starting to get back into make up after the last weeks of my semester, so this grown-up gloss is perfect!
imPRESS Press-on Manicure by Broadway Nails in 240 Tweetheart
From the card:Introducing imPRESS, the revolutionary way to apply nail polish! Featuring advanced technology, you will get a salon-perfect manicure in seconds - simply peel off, press on and you're done (no drying time!). imPress comes in 36 colors and patterns, including trendy brights, fun prints, classic darks and animal prints.
My first thoughts: I haven't thought about press-on nails since about 7th grade! While I would have preferred a pattern that I couldn't do on my own (instead of the plain, but pretty, red), I am interested to see how much press-ons have improved in the seven years since I used them last.
There was also a coupon for LÄRABARs and imPress nails.
I am seriously so excited to be able to try all this stuff. It was the perfect surprise on the last day of the semester :)
More detailed reviews are to come as I use products.
Disclaimer: While I did receive these products free of charge, my opinion of them is my own.
