It has been an extremely busy last few months but I'm so happy to say that school is out! Its Summa!!! Well kind of, this summer I will be working at my school, working at Old Navy, and being a nanny for 2 kids. It will be a quick summer!
While I missed blogging, I did have something to get me through these last few months... Influenster's Go VoxBox! Whoo!!
I always love getting selected for these boxes because they are so much fun! Influenster chooses the best products and I always find something I want more of. If you're interested in joining, leave me a comment with your email! Did I mention it's free?!
Back to the box. Here is a photo of everything & my review.
Description: I received 3 flavors of the protein powder: chocolate, very berry, and vanilla. I also received a bottle, similar to a Blender Bottle but it has a purple plastic blender instead of a wire ball.
Review: The protein shakes were good to mix with water and drink. The chocolate was my favorite, the very berry was just ok. I tried to make a protein pancake with the vanilla but it didn't turn out so well.
Buy or Not Buy: Buy. The chocolate though and have with a Quest Cookie Dough Bar ;)
2) Blue Diamond Blueberry Almonds
Description: Almonds and blueberries often come together in recipes, so it made sense to combine the natural flavor of blueberries with our oven-roasted almonds' crunchy goodness. As a good source of protein, our Blueberry-Flavored Almonds make a great anytime snack to keep you going. Enjoy them in place of candy or cookies for a sweet treat packed with antioxidants. (From Blue Diamond Website).
Review: These are amazing! I had to break into them right away and couldn't stop. I've always loved almonds but these are the best treat.
Buy or Not Buy: BUY BUY BUY!!! Here is the cheapest I've found them
3) ProFoot Triad Orthotic
Description: You'll feel dramatic results the minute you put Triad Insoles in your shoes. The triple action, advanced design provides unparalleled support and comfort to the three zones of your feet: the arches, heels and balls of feet. No other insole does a better job preventing foot fatigue and helping to relieve knee and back pain than Triad. (From Website).
Review: I honestly didn't feel too much of a difference. I think this is because I have Nikes and they have great insoles. I would try them in other shoes, however, I have very small feet and they were too big for non-tennis shoes.
Buy or Not Buy: Not Buy only for the reason that I didn't need them.
4) Muller Yogurt
Description: Muller yogurt was originated in Europe but in 2012 formed a partnership with Quaker Oats and brought the yogurt to the USA. They have 3 different styles: corner, greek corner, & Frut Up.
Review: I tend to be a snob when it comes to yogurt. I'm a huge Chobani fan and that is the only one I'll eat. Not anymore! This yogurt was creamy and delicious! I tried the corner and Greek corner. The corner was more sweet, like typical yogurt. Greek corner had Greek yogurt that was so creamy and didn't leave the sour after taste you can sometimes get. They have lots of varieties and are often on sale!
Buy or Not Buy: Buy! If you have a Smith's Shopping Center they are on sale for 10/$10 and you get a coupon for your next purchase!
5) Pro-Foot Pedi Rock
Description: Callus file with easy-grip shape gently removes calluses and dry skin. Flex-soft material conforms to the shape of your foot for smooth, soft skin in 60 seconds. Gently removes calluses and dry skin. Easy-grip shape is fast and effective. Silicon carbide crystal surface can be used wet or dry (Amazon).
Review: I'm not a nail technician. I don't really take care of my own feet. That said, this pedi-rock seems to do everything that other pedi-rocks do. A few differences are that it is squishy to the touch and it doesn't have anything to catch your feet shavings.
Buy or Not Buy: Not Buy.
6) Playtex Sport Fresh Balance Tampons
Description: A tampon is a tampon but this one has a flared plunger for handling comfort, contoured applicator-slimmed at the tip, unique tapered tampon, flexible to move with the body and a special backup layer expands quickly to attract and lock in fluid for better protection.
Review: I really liked these. Usually I use Kotex U but this was great for during the day when I had to be up and moving. I wore one during my school's water day and it stayed in place and worked well.
Buy or Not buy: Buy! Plus they are usually on sale at Walgreens.
7)Aqua Spa Bath Salts
Review: After a really stressful night I poured some of these salts into my bath, turned down the lights, and just sat. The jar definitely did not lie. My muscles felt better, I definitely relaxed and felt over all happier. These didn't irritate my skin like others do and the smell is very soothing, not fake and overwhelming.
Buy or Not Buy: Buy but put it in the splurge part of your budget.
I love the Influenster program and this box definitely did not disappoint!
Till next time,
