My Influenster Sugar 'N Spice Vox Box {Review}

*I received these products complimentary of Influenster for testing purposes. 

I am not going to lie...  I was pretty excited to get picked for my second Influenster Vox Box, the Sugar 'N Spice Vox Box. Seriously, if you are not an Influenster member yet you need to do something about that.  (Need an invite?  I may have a few left- just email me. ;) )

I loved just about everything I received this go-round...

NECTRESSE sweetener, Retails for $3.99-6.99:
Okay, so this was my least favorite item in the Vox Box.  Honestly, I am just not a big fan of zero calorie sweeteners.  I prefer real sugar or honey.  I did try to stay open-minded and gave it a go in my hot tea one night.  It was entirely too sweet for me.  But never fear... it found a good home with my mother who loves sugar substitutes. ;)

belVita Breakfast Biscuits, $3.69 for a box of 5 packets of biscuits:
I received the Cinnamon Brown Sugar biscuits and loved them.  It was almost like eating Biscoff cookies for breakfast... but healthier.  These are great for a quick breakfast on the go.

Vaseline Spray & Go Moisturizer Total Moisture, $7.99 for a 6.5
oz can:
So this is one of my favorites from the Sugar 'n Spice Vox Box.  Mainly because I am usually too lazy to properly moisturize after I have taken a shower.  And also because I am usually limited by baby girl's nap time as to how long I have to take the above mentioned shower and then moisturize and get dressed.  The Vaseline Spray & Go has ensured that I moisturize almost every day now.  Just spray all over, do a quick rub in, and get dressed.... and Done! :)  I will definitely be buying this again once I run out, although I am pretty sure I am trying the Cocoa Butter one next. 

Dickinson's Original Witch Hazel Oil Controlling Towelettes, $5.99 for a 20-Count Box:
I really loved these for their convenience factor.  They were perfect to throw in my gym bag and use after a workout.  (Psssttt... I also may have used them on nights when I was SUPER tired and too lazy to actually wash my face. ;) )  The smell of Witch Hazel leaves something to be desired, but the towelettes left my face feeling clean and refreshed. 

Colgate Optic White Regimen (Toothpaste, $2.99; Mouthwash, $2.99- unless you go out and buy the big one like I did; Toothbrush, $2.99):
Now we have come to my very favorite thing in my entire Sugar 'N Spice Vox Box- the Colgate Optic White Regimen!  I am a daily coffee and sweet tea drinker and my poor smile had really begun to show the effects of that.  (I was totally going to do one of those before and after smile photos, but every time I snapped a pic of my teeth I just thought it looked weird.)  Within 2 weeks, I saw a noticeable difference in how much whiter and brighter my teeth looked!   Even the husband and son loved the new toothpaste and mouthwash in the house.  So much so that I had to go out and buy a BIG ole bottle of the Optic White mouthwash and my husband his very own Optic White toothbrush.  Yep, we have now officially switched toothpaste/toothbrush/mouthwash brands. :)
