For today's post, I'm finally reviewing the Violet Vox Box that I received courtesy of Influenster. It's always a nice surprise to know that you qualified for a Vox Box.
If you don't know what Influenster is, Influenster is a site that gives you free products to try out in exchange for your reviews. It's a nice little site. The products can be hit or miss, but who doesn't like free products?
Here is a photo of the box itself and the card with the description of each of the items in the box. I received a SoyJoy bar, a Goody Athletique Headband, Sally Hansen New Triple Shine Nail Polish, and a Goody QuikStyle hair brush.
Goody Athletique Headband ($6.00)- This item is below the hairbrush if you couldn't tell what it was from the photo. I'm on the fence about this product. When I tried it on, it was very comfortable. The only problem was the velcro on the headband. It kept getting tangled in my hair a bit, so I'm not sure how much I will be using this product. I only really put my hair in a ponytail once in a while, so I feel like I won't get much out of this product. The velcro really turns me off to the product.
Sally Hansen New Triple Shine Nail Polish ($4.99)- I did a swatch and review of this product here. Overall, I really liked the polish. I would buy more in the future. I saw some glitters and flakie polishes that looked really nice.
SoyJoy Bar ($0.99)- I received the banana flavored SoyJoy bar in my box. One word: Ugh! This flavor was absolutely gross! Even though I hate banana flavored foods, I decided to try it out and I regret it. It tasted exactly like banana, which was really gross. The texture of the bar was kind of weird as well. I wouldn't buy this bar at all. I would try some of the other flavors, but anything but the banana bar.
Goody QuikStyle ($12.99)- This is a hairbrush that mainly removes water from your hair as you style. I actually used this brush before I put in some leave in conditioner in my hair today. It actually did remove the water from my hair. I usually leave in my conditioner overnight, but if I were to wash my hair really quick, this would be really good to cut back the drying time on my hair. I'm glad I got this product for free, because there would be no way that I would buy this in stores.
Overall, this box was a hit and miss for me to be honest. My favorite products are the Sally Hansen polish and the QuikStyle hairbrush, which I will probably be using the most out of the four products. I actually wish I received the face mask out of the three products, but I'm good with the brush as well.
I'm thinking about doing more product based reviews in the future. For example, hand cremes and cuticle oils. Let me know if you all would like to see more product reviews on the blog! I had fun writing this review up!
Thanks for reading and have a Merry Christmas!
