Caliente Vox Box Review

Wednesday, October 08, 2014

This past June I signed up for Influenster. Influenster allows you to sign up, sync up your social media accounts, and post reviews on tons of products. The more you interact online, on their website, and within your own social circle, the higher your Impact Score goes. Every so often they'll send you a survey to see if you could be a qualifier for a VoxBox. A VoxBox is a box of free goodies that you get to sample and do reviews on.

A couple of months ago I received my first VoxBox from them.

Caliente VoxBox! 

When I first opened the box I was pleasantly surprised to see just how many samples they put in there as well as the type of stuff in there.

I know I've reviewed some things in their own separate post but I figured that I should review them all here as well.

KISS Gel FANTASY - 7.99$

I got these nails in Freshen Up which has a black french tip with silver glitter. I really liked the way they looked on. They come with both adhesive tabs and a tube of glue. I found that the tabs did not work as long or as well as the glue did. I suggest that if you live in a humid climate, skip the tabs and go straight for the glue. The upside is that the nails themselves are really durable. You can easily get two or three wears out of them. I would definitely purchase them again but probably only for a special occasion.

I never wore sunscreen everyday because I hated the way it made my skin oily and my body smell like I'd just come in from a swim at the Y. But this stuff has definitely changed my mind about it. It goes on just like lotion - non-greasy, non-oily, and absorbs very quickly. It has some subtle glitter that gives you a golden glow in the sunlight. It doesn't smell overwhelmingly like sunscreen. Sunscreen is super important for your skin and if you have tattoos it'll help them stay brighter and vivid longer. I'm still using my sample bottle but I will definitely be getting a full-sized one when I'm out.

Kellogg's Rice Krispie Treats Blasted Smores - 2.99$

I absolutely love Rice Krispies Treats but I usually make them myself. I find that adding extra marshmallows makes them even better. Though these don't taste like homemade they're not bad. The added chocolate and graham cracker is the perfect summertime treat since it mixes two of the best desserts into one. If you want to skip out on making them from scratch, go ahead and buy these.

Dove Pure Care Dry Oil Nourishing Treatment - 12.99$

I've always had dry, coarse, curly hair. Lately I've been trying to take better care of it with weekly deep or hot oil treatments. The fact that the Texas sun and heat is sweltering means that my hair is always a bit damaged even though I don't use any heat to style it. My favorite oil is coconut oil since it smells great, but it's not the best for using on your hair when you're going to go out. This dry oil works really well for my tips which is basically the only place I put it. Each morning I'll take a tinytiny bit and rub it onto my ends. It leaves them feeling more supple and less frizzy. I don't know if I'll go out and buy the full-sized version though. I might try other brands first.

Paula's Choice 2% BHA Liquid Exofliant - 22.10$

Visit the Paula's Choice website here.
My skin care routine is embarrassingly simple. I use a mix of sunflower oil and caster oil to take off my makeup and cleanse at night. Then in the morning I use Cetaphil to freshen up. That's it. I'm lucky that I don't get blemishes very often but when I do I use Burt's Bees to target spot. So, I admittedly haven't been using this every day like I should. I found that when I use it before putting on my makeup it leaves my skin feeling fresh and clean. When I use it at night I find that it does take off some leftover makeup residue. The best thing is that it doesn't smell. At. All. With all the things I use that have fragrance it is amazing to find something devoid of it. The reviews online seem to love it. But at such a high price for something I won't routinely use I'm going to skip it and stick to what I know.

Have you used any of these? Was there something you were interested in and have a question that I didn't answer? Leave a comment and I'll be happy to help.
