Influenster Sugar N' Spice VoxBox

I was thrilled to receive a 'Sugar 'N Spice' Influenster VoxBox in April. I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes.


Influenster Sugar 'N Spice VoxBox


Contents: This Sugar 'N Spice Influenster VoxBox included 7 items. 

Unboxing 'Sugar N' Spice' Influenster VoxBox

1. belVita Breakfast Biscuits, packet of 4 biscuits

Full size cost: $3.69 for a box of 5 packets of 4 biscuits
Retail value: $0.74

This was my first time trying breakfast biscuits. I was happy to try the Cinnamon Brown Sugar biscuits. I've already eaten these biscuits and my first impression was that these were more like cookies than biscuits, the cinnamon was more prominent than the brown sugar flavor, and these biscuits would be appropriate as an on-the-go snack. These biscuits are designed to provide sustained energy throughout the morning. The nutritional facts indicate that these biscuits are a good source of whole grains and dietary fiber. However, there are 230 calories, 10 grams of sugar and 8 grams of fat for every 4 breakfast biscuits. I enjoyed these, but I would keep healthier snacks on hand for those mornings when I am running out the door.

2. Colgate Optic White Mouthwash, 8 oz 
3. Colgate Optic White Toothbrush
4. Colgate Optic White Toothpaste, 4 oz

Full size cost of mouthwash: $2.99 
Retail value: $2.99

Full size cost of toothbrush: $2.99
Retail value: $2.99

Full size cost of toothpaste: $2.99
Retail value: $2.99

I was excited to find 3 full-size Colgate products in this VoxBox. Dental hygiene is an important part of overall health and well-being. Also, I drink several cups of tea throughout the day, so I like trying different teeth whitening products. I am happy that the mouthwash is alcohol-free because I usually can not bear the 'burn' that is associated with alcohol laden mouthwash.

Here is what the toothpaste label says: 
"Whiter teeth in one week. High-impact whitening formula. Enamel safe."

Here is what the mouthwash label says:
"Effectively whitens teeth and freshens breath. Helps protect against future stains. Reaches hard-to-brush areas. Kills bad-breath germs. Enamel safe."

5. Dickinson's Original Witch Hazel Oil Controlling Towelettes, 20 individually wrapped wet towelettes

Full size cost: $5.99
Retail value: $5.99

I've read that witch hazel can be used as a toner for combination-oily skin, so I am excited to try these. These 5" x 7" oil controlling towelettes are unique because these are individually wrapped, making these great for on-the-go. Here is what the label says:
"Botanical extracts of witch hazel and aloe rejuvenate your skin by gently lifting dirt, oil, and impurities from your pores while nourishing sensitive skin. The result is a clean, freshed, & blemish free complexion anytime - anywhere! Oil free. Non-drying. All skin types."

6. Nectresse, 40 individual packets

Full size cost: $3.99
Retail value: $3.99

This no calorie sweetener is unique because it is 100% natural. It is made from the monk fruit and other natural sweeteners. I do not like sugar supplements because of the artificial aftertaste and unfortunately, Nectresse left me with the same artificial aftertaste. This is the only product in the VoxBox that I would not re-purchase.

7. Vaseline Spray & Go Moisturizer Total Moisture, 6.5 oz 

Full size cost: $7.99
Retail value: $7.99

This is novel product packaging for lotion. It is a continuous spray container, similar to spray-on sunscreen aerosol containers, that is easy to use. The lotion sprays out evenly and is non-greasy. Also, the lotion dries quickly (under 15 seconds), so it is great for those instances when you need to shower and rush to get dressed and get out of the house.



Summary:

Total estimated retail value: $27.68

Product tally:
Dental = 3
Edible = 2
Face & Body = 2



Verdict:
Size: I was thrilled to receive 7 full size products!

Products: I received a good variety of high-quality products this month. I am most excited about the Vaseline Spray & Go Moisturizer Total Moisturizer and happy to have the opportunity to try the Colgate Optic White Regimen!

Value: N/A - I received these products complimentary from Influenster
