Every once in a while the mail-box gods shine upon me and I find myself tearing into a new treat from Influenster. The Sprout VoxBox showed up on my doorstep a few days ago and I was so excited to see what was inside. Look at all the goodies!
Orgain Organic Protein Powder in Vanilla Bean – While I’m not a regular protein powder consumer, or smoothie drinker, every once in a while I like to try one out. This sample made for a great evening snack/treat mixed with a little almond milk. I love that this is a plant-based protein powder (some that contain dairy upset my tummy) that’s organic and soy free! I would recommend it to all the vegans in my life, especially considering the price tag. This one comes in at around 20 bucks a pound.
Ecos Hypoallergenic Laundry Detergent – I received this sample of laundry detergent in the Ecos signature scent Magnolia & Lily. It’s made with gentle, plant-derived ingredients and a built-in fabric softener so I don’t have to worry about any weird chemicals giving me skin irritation. Plus, it smells fantastic!
Hair Food Shampoo and Conditioner – This duo is part of Hair Food’s Moisture Collection, designed to soothe dry hair by adding hydration and shine. How do they do this? Honey essences. Sound weird? A little. Basically, the brand was inspired by the way honey soothes and revitalizes your body and decided to inject the same principle into their hair care. And it totally works! My hair felt and looked way healthier after a little Hair Food love.
Eatsmart Tortilla Chips – I received a full size bag of the Eatsmart Three Bean Tortilla Chips and WOW! I was impressed before I even tore into the bag just by the nutrition info and the ingredients. The chips are made with pinto, navy, and black beans with 14g of whole grain, 2g of fiber and a recognizable ingredient list. And the taste didn’t disappoint either. I got the Garlic Hummus flavor…I love BOTH those things! A match made in heaven.
Curate Bar – I LOVE bars, like Lara and Kind, that focus on real ingredients and interesting flavor combinations. The Curate bar I found in my box definitely took a page from my old favorites’ book. The flavor, Balsamic Fig & Hazelnut, is a part of Curate’s Dark & Tempting collection, just the sort of savory meets sweet snack my taste buds are always after. The bar is made of balsamic vinegar, mission figs, orange, hazelnuts, sunflower kernels, and quinoa and makes a delicious snack to tuck into your purse for when you’re on the go and hunger strikes.
Vichy LifActiv Serum and LifActiv Supreme – And these Vichy products are the pièce de résistance! I can not tell you how sold I am on this brand after just a few days of using these products. Admittedly, I’ve never used a dedicated anti-aging product before so I really have nothing to compare it to, but the LifActiv Supreme day cream is literally blowing my mind. I really only got into skin care in the last few years, coupled with the fact that I’ve turned 30 (eeks!) and like, it was probably time to try and reverse the damage of not taking great care of my face for so long while simultaneously preparing to, you know, keep getting older. So this product couldn’t have come at a better time. It soaks right into the skin, without feeling wet or tacky, and (I can’t tell if I’m making this up or not but I don’t think I am) has instant results. What sort of results? It smooths the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while brightening and firming the skin. All FINE with me!
Overall this was a very fun box and I truly enjoyed all the contents! If you love trying new products and posting reviews, check out Influenster. It’s totally FREE to sign up! And who knows…the mail-box gods may choose to shine down on YOU next!
