I'm usually quite game for trying out new products in a voxbox; however, I won't settle for sub par essential oils. I did not even put this one my skin. After doing my own research on the product it claims to be 100% pure, but where do their get their material from? It says finest ingredients, but I can't get behind a company that doesn't have full transparency about what I'm using! Not for me!
Okay I'm giving this three stars off the bat because I don't love the ingredients. I hesitated about whether or not I should use it after I saw talc listed as the 4th ingredient. But I committed to testing this product I received for free so I tried it. Aside from the ingredient I didn't like, it doesn't contain sulfates, parabens, mineral oil, phthalates, or formaldehyde - which is great! It applies easily, it has a small amount of grit to it, and dried relatively quickly. The thing I liked most was that it was so easy to remove. I set a warm wash cloth on my face and then gently wiped it off - no harsh scrubbing necessary! I was pleasantly surprised that my skin did feel smoother immediately. I would highly recommend following up with a deep moisturizer. I would probably recommend it but with the disclaimer that it contains talc, an ingredient I have heard linked to ovarian cancer and encourage everyone to research that ingredient before investing in the product.
Very cool product. Goes on liquid and dries to a matte finish. It was weird while it was dying, similar to a stain. Don't rub your lips together while it's drying. I wish there was an accompanying lip gloss because I wasn't sure what would work best with it without breaking down the product. It did NOT smudge or transfer to cups, people, etc. I was impressed with the long-lasting product and would definitely recommend it and probably try out another color! I received this one complimentary from the Splash Voxbox!
I love that there is a lemon candy in here! Long-live lemon flavor! They are hard to find. In all seriousness these were pretty tasty, I'm Not often reaching for a fruity candy and am not a big fan of regular Mike and Ike's but these were the perfect amount of sour! I don't love all the extra wasteful packaging though. There was a bag IN the box. Why? Just sell them in a bag or put them in a box. Flavor was great, packaging mediocre.
I did enjoy this book. I liked the way it switched between perspectives and I really liked that it showed how first impressions aren't always what they seem to be. That being said, I wasn't thrilled with the ending. I definitely understand why critics raved about this book, the young love in it is palpable and it certainly makes you remember all of those moments and feelings. It's still a book I would recommend.
This book was excellent. I can't even decide what to write. Finally a book that touches on mental illness, that doesn't make it seem silly or easily avoided or fake. Its something our society really needs to start understanding and working on. After hearing Jennifer Niven's note at the end I was struck by how much courage it took for her to write this piece. It was a great book for audio, one of the few audiobooks I've heard that have multiple narrators which adds so much to the story, especially for this particular book. I'm so glad I got around to reading this sooner rather than later.
Nail polish has long been a big pet peeve of mine. 1. It's hard to apply - I mean one hand looks great but your non-dominant hand cannot do well painting your dominant hand. 2. IT CHIPS ALMOST INSTANTLY. If you've managed to successfully make it to the point where your nails are dry and you haven't smudged them and had to redo them, there is nothing more frustrating than doing a normal task like opening a door or something and they chip. Or you wash dishes and half the paint is suddenly gone. Or shower. Ugh it's just an exhausting process. BUT GUESS WHAT. This Wet n Wild 1 Step WonderGel is amazing. I've gone 1 week with the same mani - multiple showers, lots of diaper changes, washing dishes, daily chores, and there is like 1 chip. I'm not even kidding. This is the longest-lasting drug store nail polish I've ever experienced and I can't wait to get some of the other colors too! I received this free to test in the Charm voxbox but this opinion is my own.
These were tasty! It's still takes some getting used to, eating applesauce from a pouch like I would a juice box. I got to try this out for free in the Charm Voxbox and it also came with a coupon to be redeemed at Target, so if you're looking for these, you can find the there! A bonus was that it was 0 points for weight watchers because it was unsweetened. Still a delicious snack without added sugar. It would be great for adults or kids.
The only offputting thing was that the label said there could be stems in the product! I do understand though, as it is a natural product, it just took me by surprise.
Yum! Part of the Charm Voxbox, I got to sample these cuties for free! When I first opened my box I was disappointed: "but, I don't like coconut." However, if you are sending me something to test for free, I'm going to test it out. It was delicious. the flavor was good and light, the chocolate definitely tied it together, I don't think I could do just coconut peeps.
My favorite (I think) flavor of Halo Top! Seriously guilt-free ice cream. I actually like it a lot better than regular brands if ice cream, it's creamier! I honestly ate a pint of this the other day and it didn't "undo" any of my hard work on eating healthy or being more active. Phew! Sign up for their emails and you get a coupon!
