Influenster TLC VoxBox

Well, Influenster has done it again - this TLC VoxBox has been a great box to try!

In this box we have:

The Fuel Rewards Network at Shell

This was the only thing I wasn't excited about. I don't buy Shell gas anymore, it's always significantly more expensive than other places where I live. The few times I have used it I don't feel it performed any better than any other fuel I've used and just being blunt, I'm not interested in signing up for it when I won't use it.

A coupon for a free full size Breyer's Gelato Indulgences, I choose the Raspberry Cheesecake

Holy frozen heaven, kids. This stuff is AMAZING!!!! Purchase at your own risk, though you're seriously missing out if you don't! There are four flavors in all, the Raspberry Cheesecake, Vanilla Caramel, Tiramisu and Triple Chocolate. The Tiramisu is next on my list to try! I had to fight off my hubby to get a good taste of it, the texture is pure creamy goodness and the flavors are just right. Not too sweet, but let me tell you, I thought I was eating a cheesecake from the Cheesecake Factory, no joke! 
Gelato is an Italian form of ice cream, but it is made differently. It has a lower butterfat content than American style ice cream, which makes it a little softer but because of the way it's made, it's actually more dense than ice cream. Ice cream is has air in it, gelato doesn't which makes it heavier, but creamier. And traditional gelato is usually made with real fruit, real chocolate and nuts along with milk and cream whereas ice cream is often made with syrup flavors, though not always - some higher end ice creams use real fruit, chocolate and nuts as well (source)

Puff Plus Lotion, To Go Pack.

I love Puffs and have used them for years. This is one of my products that I won't go generic for, it's totally worth paying a little more for a soft tissue to blow noses, especially during cold season. This handy little pack has been stashed in my backpack and I've been very glad to have it in class when I had a runny nose. The tissues are so soft, and the lotion additive isn't greasy. These are a definite must have, especially on the go. 

Neosporin Neo To Go spray form

Neosporin is, again, another must have brand name. I haven't had a chance to use this little beauty (I think that's a good thing???) but it goes with me in my purse. Having a 7 year old daughter who's as much girl as she is tomboy cuts and scrapes are a standard in our house and Neosporin has been the go-to medicine under bandages. 

Ivory Classic Soap Bar

I'm not much for bar soaps anymore, we almost exclusively use liquid soap, but I was excited to try this. And it wasn't disappointing. I have really sensitive skin, and I was pleased to experience that this didn't irritate my skin or leave a residue that I've experienced with other bars (hence, why I've switched to liquid). 
It does seem to leave my skin a bit dry, however, I would equate that to it's efficient cleaning abilities. I use a dry oil and lotion after bathing so it didn't really make it a con for me. I probably won't buy a bar again, but I did like this, as far as bar soap goes.  

Avon Anew Reversalist Express Wrinkle Smoother
I was really excited about trying this product. Being in my early 30's, I know it's time to start being more proactive about wrinkle control, but I've had some hit and miss experiences with Avon, and unfortunately, this was a miss. The product is easy enough to use, and comes in a convenient compact. But after a few hours of application around my eyes, laugh lines and forehead, I started to notice a light breakout particularly around the laugh line and forehead area. It went away quickly after I washed my face, but I've noticed that there still seems to be some irritation wherever I use it. Needless to say, wrinkle control isn't work a breakout, even a mild one, in my opinion. I'm sure it works well for someone, but this time Avon wasn't for me.

So there we have the TCL VoxBox from Influenster! All in all, like I said this box has been great to try. I have a blast with Influenster! Hit me up if you'd like an invitation to try it! :-) Happy Tuesday everyone!
