Summer Beauty VoxBox Followup with Reviews


I thought for today's post I would do a little follow-up sharing what I will purchase, might purchase, and won't purchase from the samples provided in my Influenster Summer Beauty VoxBox.  There are also little mini reviews for each product.

So, let's break this down:

Sally Hansen Nails and Cuticles Hand Creme
Will I repurchase?  Maybe in the future.  I have lots of lotions and creams to get through first.  I have gone through an entire full size of this before and I do like this hand creme.  This hand creme has a light fragrance that smells like citrus oil - a little orangey-lemon.  I like that this creme sinks in quickly and doesn't leave a greasy feeling.  As to lasting through hand washing, I'm not sure since I typically put this on last thing before bed so there's little to no chance of me washing my hands soon after applying.

Hawaiian Tropic Silk Hydration Lotion Sunscreen SPF 30
Will I repurchase?  Most likely yes, but not right now.  I have a large bottle of body lotion with SPF from another brand that I need to work on using up.  I am able to put this on the morning after shaving (shaved my legs the night before) with no stinging or burning like I've experienced from other fragranced body lotions.  This one has a nice fragrance of shea butter with a little touch of vanilla that is not overwhelming.  This lotion is nicely moisturizing - I would put it in the same level as the body creams from Bath & Body Works for richness.  The price for a full size bottle is decent, depending on which store you go to (I checked that out for curiosity's sake).

Sally Hansen Magnetic Nail Color
Will I repurchase?  Yes, I already have purchased 4 other colors from Sally Hansen.  I showed which ones in this post.  I reviewed this polish here.  My 2 issues with the Sally Hansen are the price (around $9-$10 depending on the store) and the lack of different designs (wave only).

Always & Tampax Radiant Collection
Will I repurchase?  Yes and no (but not right now for either since I've got a stock pile thanks to coupons earlier this year).  Yes to the unscented items (liners- loved the extra thinness - and tampons - finally a resealable wrapper!).  No to the scented pad - it worked as it should, I just have a personal preference against scented feminine products.  Just to be picky, I will say the price could be a little lower on the entire line.  Side note:  I love the little bag it came with - just the right size to organize my purse and corral medications when traveling.

Quaker Banana Nut Bread Soft Baked Bars
Will I repurchase?  Maybe.  I'm not huge on packaged snack bars, but this was great for while traveling and needing a snack several hours before the meal.  It looks like there are 2 flavors currently available.  I might try the other flavor to see if I like it better or if the entire line is just "meh" for me.

So there's my little wrap-up of what I liked and didn't like or was indifferent to.

Have you used any of these products?  Did you like them if you did?

I was sent these products complimentary for testing purposes from Influenster when I mention these products online.
