This is the follow up post to my Campus VoxBox Unboxing I posted a few weeks ago. Honestly, I was really happy with this box as a whole! There were some amazing products and I can see myself purchasing some of the items; I love the sunless tanner, the face scrub, and the lip cube. I've reviewed each of the products below. Since the reviews are pretty short, I just decided to combine them into one post instead of creating a bunch of different blogs. Makes things a bit easier for everyone, right?
I included these links in my last post, but if you want to read more about the VoxBoxes I've received in the past, here ya go:
DISCLAIMER: I received these products complimentary for testing purposes from Influenster.com. This is not a sponsored post, and all opinions are my own.
JERGENS Natural Glow Instant Sun Sunless Tanning Mousse ($12.99)
Like I said in my unboxing blog, I was so afraid that this tanner would make my skin look way too orange. I was sent the shade "Deep Bronze," so I wasn't sure how natural it would end up looking on my pale skin. I used it on my legs a few times and loved the results!! The fact that this product is a mousse makes it so easy to use (it's basically fool-proof; trust me). It's not streaky at all. I used my bare hands to apply this, but it was fairly easy to remove with some warm water and soap. I would recommend using a mitt or gloves, though. This dries quickly so you do have to work kind of fast; however, I love that you can put this on right before you go somewhere and don't have to worry about it transferring onto you clothes. I would definitely purchase this product. It's a bit on the pricey side, but I would probably only use it for special occasions (weddings, date night, whatever).
St. Ives Blemish Control Apricot Scrub ($3.99 - $4.79)
I've been loving this product recently! My combo skin usually isn't too horrible in the summer, but I can feel some build up starting to happen as the days get warmer. Sweat, makeup, all that good stuff. I use this scrub once or twice a week depending on how my skin looks; it leaves my skin feeling nice and clean without over-drying it. My skin isn't super sensitive, but I have to be careful about how often I use exfoliators. This one is so perfect for my skin, and I will definitely be purchasing this as soon as I run out of my current bottle.
L'OREAL PARIS Advanced Straight System (Shampoo/ Conditioner: $4.99 each, Treatments: $6.99)
I have to admit- this product really didn't do a whole lot for me... I have fairly straight hair, but it does have a slight wave to it. After using this system, my hair was straighter than it normally is. However, after a day in the Arkansas rain/ humidity it didn't stay that way. I'm not sure if I would purchase this system, mostly because I use Redken shampoo and conditioner on my hair. It's color-treated, so I try to stay away from drugstore hair products. This isn't a bad product, it just didn't do anything overly special for me.
Softlips Cube ($3.49)
I'm pretty sure this is my new favorite drugstore lip balm! It's so moisturizing, but doesn't leave a greasy film on your lips. I love the taste and the scent (it's really fruity), and the packaging is so freaking adorable! I have to say, this doesn't last a long time on the lips; maybe 2 to 3 hours tops. But I'm totally fine with reapplying it throughout the day. I usually put this on my lips when I'm doing my makeup so I can have super soft lips (haha) before applying lip liner/ lipstick. These are popping up all over my local Walmart, so I'm pretty sure I'll end up buying some of the other scents just to try them out. I'm interested in the Vanilla Bean one!
Sour Punch Rainbow Straws ($1.29 - $1.59)
I may or may not have thrown these into my purse when I went to see Age of Ultron a few weeks ago. And they were awesome! I've had these sour straws before, so there really wasn't much mystery here. The strawberry are still my favorite, but the new lemon straws were a close second. I'm not usually a huge fan of blue raspberry, but I love these for some reason. I would definitely buy these and sneak them into the theater haha
Sour Punch Punchies ($0.89 - $1.29)
I have to be honest- I absolutely love the Strawberry candies! The rest of them were not all that wonderful. The Lemon candies weren't bad. I don't know, I guess I'm just not a huge fan of sour candies if they aren't strawberry flavored. I don't think I would purchase these, but I'm glad I got a sample of them in my box. Unless they sold the strawberry ones on their own. Then I would probably buy a few bags.
You're awesome for making it all the way through that ridiculously long post! Thank you :)
I'll talk to you again very soon.
