Are you an Influenster?

29 Apr

This post is looooooong overdue.  A couple of months ago I found out about this site called Influenster where you fill out your interests, add your social media info and, if you’re selected, receive these awesome things called VoxBoxes where you get to test out products. So I signed up and weeks later I got my Love VoxBox in the mail 🙂 Wanna see what I got to test out?

I first dug in to the herbal tea selection from Stash Tea.  Was I excited to see all the flavors in the sampler box!  The blueberry tea is definitely my favorite, and I’ve enjoyed the hot and cold varieties.

Of course, I had to try the Ghiradelli chocolate.  It was rich and creamy, and as it melted in my mouth I was really able to notice the subtle flavors.  I do wish that the pieces were smaller sizes so that the chocolate would last longer!

I’ve always had my hesitations about razors that have moisture strips.  Would I still need to use shaving cream?  Would the moisture strips wear down really quickly?  So when I tried the Venus & Olay razor by Gillette I was pleasantly surprised.  I didn’t need to use shaving cream or a soapy lather in addition to the moisture strips on the razor.  Shaving was super quick, and my skin was silky and smooth.  My concern about the moisture strips wearing down started to come true after 5 or so uses.  I’m still using the razor, only now with shaving cream.  Overall I think this is a must when traveling.

Also in my VoxBox was Truvia natural sweetener.  I was hesitant to use this product, only because I hadn’t really read up on it and in general stick to using sugar instead of other sweeteners.  I did try Truvia a couple of times (using about a half a packet per one cup of coffee) and will say that it was a perfect sugar substitute.  I didn’t notice a difference of flavor.  I’ll definitely have to read more about Truvia and other natural sweeteners before I incorporate this into my diet.  Do you use Truvia or other sugar substitutes?  Which do you recommend and why?

I’m going to save my favorite item in the VoxBox for another post, because as you may know I love nail polish and nail art.  So stay tuned!
