My #FrostyVoxBox arrived on my doorstep just in time for the frosty weather. Luckily, there were some fun products in the box to warm my spirits. Are you a blogger who is not a member of Influester? Click here to learn more.
I was excited to try the EcoTools Sleek + Shine Finisher Hair Brush. I am always on the lookout to find the perfect brush for my long, thick hair. The unique bristle pattern allows the synthetic boar’s hair-like bristles to penetrate down to the scalp, distributing hair’s natural moisturizers and leaving hair with a sleek, lustrous shine. The bristles are much different than brushes that I currently own. They are very stiff. I would have imagined that they would pull and tug and my hair. To my surprise, it was the opposite. The way the bristles are designed, they just glide through my hair. The best part? No frizz. I get a shiny polished look.
I was really hoping for a larger sample so I could more accurately evaluate this one. Boots No7 Protect & Perfect Intense Advanced Serum is supposed to supercharge your skincare regime. No7's highly acclaimed Protect & Perfect Serum contains Matrixyl 3000 Plus™, a combination of the most powerful form of Matrixyl plus a next generation peptide that work together to help restore more youthful skin. The small packet I received did not get me very far, but I did like how soft it made my skin feel. There was also no greasy feeling, which is very important to me when it comes to serums.
The new NYC New York Color Expert Last Lip Color comes in twenty tantalizing shades. I am so happy with the shade I received. It is called Sugar Plum and it is a very pretty pink. The intense amplified color and shine lasts up to 6 hours! The moisturizing formula glides of easily for a silky, smooth, velvety finish for all day wear. I like this for winter because the color looks great and it adds that extra hydration we all need in the cold winter months.
Get long lasting shocking color intensity with Rimmel London’s Scandaleyes Kohl Kajal Eyeliner. I received black in my box. I love the high intensity pigment that gives you an instant color impact. It goes on smooth and creamy, and glides on easily. It is smudge-proof, sweat-proof, heat-proof, and humidity-proof. For the very reasonable price point, I thought it performed quite well.
The name is find of funny ... Just Let It Go with Rimmel London’s Gentle Eye Makeup Remover. This Eye Makeup Remover gently removes all eye make up, including long lasting and waterproof make up, with no oily residue. It took more than a few cotton squares of product to remove all of my eye makeup. But I do like that it is gentle and not oily.
I love tea and drink it almost every single day. I had not tried Candy Cane Lane Decaf Green Tea prior to receiving the #FrostyVoxBox. It is made with green tea leaves, peppermint and other botanicals. Minty teas happen to be my favorite, so I expecting to really enjoy it. However, I found the other botanicals to give it a strange aftertaste that I didn't enjoy. I added some sugar, but that still did not seem to help. It was okay, but not fantastic.
Thyme is not something that I usually use in my cooking, but I was up to try something new. McCormick Gourmet Thyme imparts a light minty flavor that is distinctively warm and aromatic. This Natural Thyme can be used throughout the day in dishes such as breakfast casseroles, stuffing and oven-roasted chicken. Just in time for soups and stews, I started adding some McCormick Gourmet Thyme and I was quite impressed. I love the warm flavor it added.
I love cherry licorice, so I knew I would love these Fruit Vines Bites. The new, soft, chewy fruit candy from the Red Vines family is available in two fruit flavors – strawberry and cherry. It is low fat and made with no preservatives. They taste awesome. Nice and chewy with a burst of fruity flavor in each bite.
I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes.
