#voxbox review

Got my first VoxBox from Influenster. I didn't think that it would actually work, but boom... free samples :) So that’s fun. Though I’m a little afraid I got the middle aged lady one... there was detergent involved. That’s all I’m saying.

 On the other hand, I’m kind of obsessed with the John Freida "Beach Blonde" collection (still trying to figure out the name, as all the inserts say it works for "brunettes too!"). It's minty and leaves my hair all shiny and nice. The thickening stuff really works too I think. I've been getting compliments on my hair since I've started using it. I'm going to suck it up and buy some this summer. The only thing I don't like is the scent of the Sea Salt Spray. I thought it was going to be a nice, mild, minty smell like everything else, but it's pure coconut. It totally smells like the beach though, so I suppose they're on brand. I thought it would just make my hair look...dirty... but it actually makes it look nice. Kind of wavy and wind blown and nice. I was pleasantly surprised.
I actually got a SkinFix Hand Repair in December as a present, and just as I run out, my VoxBox shows up. It was fate. My hands are dry and disgusting all winter, and all I do is search for an acceptable hand cream to throw in my bag. The SkinFix is a heavy duty cream, and a little oily, but it soaks in quickly and makes my hands feel so nice.
The Colgate Optic White toothpaste, toothbrush and gel are an impressive system. I really like the toothbrush. It seems substantial, but still gentle. I have no idea if my teeth are whiter. I think they might be, but I'm a horrible judge. I drink a lot of white wine and coffee though, so I hope so. I should have taken some before/after photos to tell for sure. 
I've been eyeing Land Ends' pretty ponte dresses, they have such nice stuff! I actually got one, but the fit isn't quite right in the bust, so I'm going to exchange it for the petite. They used to have the "canvas" collection- does anyone know what happened with that? 
I didn't try the detergent. My husband did. I noticed because we usually use a "free and clear" formula, and the Tide Pods with Febreze have a definitive scent (looking at the website, there is a no perfume version though!). We're going to bring them with us on vacation, so I'll know better in a few weeks how they work.
All in all, the VoxBox was an excellent experience, and a lot of fun- it's like a present for me! I love learning about new products, and found some stuff I'll definitely stick with! If you have any questions, leave a comment!
