Influenster - Sugar & Spice VoxBox

Sugar And Spice VoxBox

March is the month of the Sugar & Spice VoxBox which I recevied FREE from Influenster and what a beauty THIS one is

Contents of the Influenster, Sugar & Spice VoxBox
(all full size, all received free for review from Influenster)

  • BelVita Breakfast Biscuits - Brown Sugar & Cinnamon
  • Nectresse by Splenda - Natural, No Calorie Sweetner
  • Vaseline Spray & Go Moisturizer - Quick, convenient, continuous-spray lotion
  • Dickenson's Original Witch Hazel - Oil Controlling Towelettes
  • Colgate Optic White - Toothbrush
  • Colgate Optic White - Toothpaste
  • Colgate Optic White - Mouthwash

So, let's get started with my reviews :)

Dickenson's Witch Hazel - Oil Controlling Wipes
$5.74 at Walmart (20 individullay wrapped wipes)


Very Moist
Individually wrapped sachets
Suitable for all skin types
Oil Controlling
Not Tested on animals


No noticible difference to pores
No difference to blemishes

I found no real noticible difference other than the oil absorbing that these towlettes are advertised to do, which is good that they're effective at that.
All in all, I don't suffer too much with excess oil so these wouldn't be a repurchase for me personally. However, Dickenson's have a very large range of other skin care products that I will be checking out with the $2 coupons that also came in my Influenster VoxBox.

BelVita Breakfast Biscuits - Brown Sugar & Cinammon
$3.99 at Walgreens (5 single packs of 4 biscuits)

On-the go single packs
Very tasty
Lightly sweet
crunchy biscuits
high quality wholesome ingredients
19g whole grain* per serving
Good source of energy releasing B-vitamins and fiber
Contains no high fructose corn syrup
No hydrogenated oils
No artificial flavors or sweeteners


Love, love, love these breakfast biscuits and they will be a definate re-purchase and a staple in my pantry. Yummo.

Brand Challenge - January 2013
Palmolive Fresh Infusions

After receiving and reviewing the contents of my First Ever INFLUENSTER Box - The Cosmo VoxBox, I received a further email requesting me to complete a survey to see if I qualified for the "Brand Challenge" and approximately 1 week later INFLUENSTER replied and said I was one of the successful candidates! Woop!


So, this brand challenge box contained 3..... yes THREE! 16 fl oz bottles of Palmolive's new range of dish soaps - Palmolive Fresh Infusions.

I received 3 different scents of the dish soap, along with 3 $1.50 off coupons for future purchases of Palmolive Fresh Infusions. Which you can purchase at Walmart for under $3.00 per bottle.

The first thing I loved about this particular dish soap is the brand. Palmolive has been my favorite for as long as I can remember and was also my Mother's. Secondly, I love the packaging of these new Fresh Infusions, it's definitely different from the norm and quite attractive!

INFLUENSTER asked us to share a bottle with someone, so I gave one to my Mother-In-Law's always best to keep on their good side right?! ;) lol.  
I decided to pass along the Lemon Thyme scented soap to her along with one of the a coupons. She loves the scent of this one and so far has no complaints with the job it's made to do.

I myself have been alternating the Lime and Basil with the Ginger White Tea and have to say that the Lime and Basil would be my first choice between the 2 scents, although I've found neither of them to be excessively scented.

Ultimately, after now using the Palmolive Fresh Infusions for 2-3 weeks here are my Final Thoughts on this new range from Palmolive:

Attractive packaging
Unique scents
Affordable price point
Sparkling dishes
No "chemical" scent to them

Almost too thick in consistancy
Difficult to completely rinse off
Scent could be stronger/more distinct

Give them a try for yourselfs, find out if Palmolive Fresh Infusions will be your Holy Grail of dish soaps ;)
