Influenster SweetHeart VoxBox: Featuring Olay Fresh Effects and more!

Recently Influenster sent me the SweetHeart VoxBox to try out a few new things. There was quite a variety of things in this box! In my box I received:

  • Skinnygirl On the Go bar in Coco-nut with Peanut Butter flavor 
  • Secret Clinical Strength deodorant in Serene Citrus scent 
  • Olay Fresh Effect Shine, Shine go Away face wash with contour cleansing system 
  • Not Your Mother's Beach Babe texturizing sea salt spray


I think my favorite item from this box was the Skinnygirl bar!  I usually don't like peanut butter, but this tasted really good and kept me full for a long time.  I want to try the other flavors, so I might buy the sample pack if I see it at the grocery store.  I think the dark chocolate pretzel flavor sounds especially yummy.

I was nervous to try out the Olay face wash because my skin is pretty dry, especially in the winter.  I was happy to find out that it didn't further dry out my skin and has a really nice scent.  In this cold weather I still needs something with a bit more hydration, so I think I will save this for the summertime, when even I get a little oily!  I have to say I didn't really care for the cleansing brush though.  It is supposed to clean the hard to reach places on your face.  I found that the rubber bristles were too firm and didn't feel like they were doing anything for my skin.  My boyfriend bought me a Clarisonic Aria for Christmas, though.  I might just be spoiled.  If you want to purchase it you can do so on the Olay website and Amazon.  

The Beach Babe spray is another product I was nervous to try.  I've never successfully "scrunched" my hair.  My hair doesn't like to cooperate when I try to style it.  No matter if I straighten it, curl it, braid it, etc. it just ends up doing it's own thing.  That said, I tried out this product on both damp and dry hair.  While it didn't give me that scrunched look, it did provide texture and made my hair feel even thicker.  I can't see myself using this on an every day basis, I will pop this in my bag if I'm going to the beach or a pool.  Also, it has a nice coconut scent, if you're into that. 

The Secret Clinical Strength deodorants are something I've looked at and thought about picking up myself for a while now.  I never ended up buying it because it is a semi-solid and those usually end up making me sweat more.  While I don't sweat heavily 24/7, sometimes I get a bit damp and uncomfortable feeling!  It would be great if there was a deodorant could stop sweating and odor 100%! Sadly, I haven't found one yet.  That isn't to say that this is not a good deodorant though.  It smells quite nice and didn't make my sweat more like I thought it might.  I will definitely use this product up, but I'm not sure if I'll repurchase it.  

Have you been interested in any of this box's products?  Have you tried them already?  Let me know!  

P.S.  Obviously these products were gifted to me, but my reviews are honest nonetheless!
