I’ve already raved about the Sheer Cover Duo Concealer that came with my Beauty VoxBox and today I wanted to share my thoughts on the other items I received. The box’s theme was all about beauty, with products much more in line with what I use than the last box I received.
First, the shining stars:
If you’ve been a long time reader, you know that I’m a big Bath and Body Works fan. From Pearberry body wash to Cherry Blossom body mist, I’ve bought them all (those sales get me everytime!) I’ve rarely found a scent I really didn’t like and this one is no exception. I’m going light with my fragrances this season and this one is perfect for me, with a light flowery scent that doesn’t try too hard to be noticed. The sleek bottle is a step up from their normal body sprays, which looks very pretty on my dresser.
My mom has been a big fan of Aveeno, one of the few body washes her sensitive skin loves. I never had a big issue with sensitive until I became pregnant and now it’s prone to super dryness and itchiness as it stretches to accommodate the princess. After using this body wash for over a week now, I understand what my mom was talking about! I noticed a big difference in not only how more moisturized my skin is but the itchiness factor has gone way down. I see a full sized bottle of this one in my immediate future!
I didn’t even have to try these out because I already own a pair of these babies (as well as the full size inserts). It seems like ever since I hit 30, my foot tolerance for stiletto heels have been steadily going down. They provide the cushioning I need to stay pain free in my heels, which come in handy for blogger events. They are also easy to use, don’t slip around, and feel nice and squishy under my feet.
The Not So Shining Stars
I was really surprised with this one because Chapstick has always been a great brand for me. However, I found this one was not moisturizing as I needed to be and I found myself going to my old lip balms to get the relief I needed.
Sally Hansen Salon Effects
Confession: I am not a big manicure person. Back in the day I went to the salon to get my full set tips done and after that, I was at the salon getting manicures done. I’ve tried doing my own but they never come out the way I want them too. This product from Sally Hansen I thought would make my life easier but it ended up being a sticky mess, unable to get them on my nail like I wanted them too. Getting them off was no fun either. I also found the design I bit too loud for my taste.
SoyJoy Fruit Bar in Blueberry
I was a bit confused at the fruit bar that was put into this otherwise beauty themed box but I gave it try anyway. I thought it would be sweeter given the big chunks of blueberry in it. I also wasn’t crazy about the baked soy, finding it a bit dry and lacking flavor.
