I was lucky enough to be selected by Influenster to receive their #GoVoxBox this month; full of goodies to help get you up and on the go! I’d never gotten a VoxBox before and didn’t really know what to expect. Big things? Little samples? What could it be?! Needless to say, I was pretty pumped at the idea of a mystery box full of goodies showing up for me.
The first two things I pulled out were this cup, and protein shake packets from the Vitamin Shoppe. Now, I eat pretty healthy but had never tried a protein shake in my life. I always assumed they tasted horrible, and were probably a big powdery wreck. But, since I now had one to sample, I gave it a go.
And honestly? It wasn’t bad. Certainly much better than I was expecting. Good flavor (though a bit of a funk aftertaste), and what surprised me most was consistency. It was nice and creamy! That being said, I won’t purchase more in the future. I’d much rather stick to a balanced diet of food than supplement and spend money on the shakes.
The cup, however, is fabulous. It is my new go-to water cup, and I love that it has the ounces on the outside so I can keep track of how much water I consume in a day. I’ve been really trying to up my intake of water, and this has definitely been helpful.
Next up were these shoe insoles. I was really excited that these are 3/4 insoles because I have odd shaped feet. Basically, I have a bone in each foot that sticks out a bit and makes my toes go all crooked. It also makes wearing insoles shaped for normal feet completely impossible (or closed toe heels for that matter). But these work great! Excellent support, and they actually fit my feet. Loving them.
I did a little dance when I pulled this out of my VoxBox. It may sound odd, but I have a little obsession with pumice stones. I hate that cracked awful feeling my feet get, which is worse in the summer as I go barefoot a lot. This is pretty much the perfect pedicure piece. You can use it wet or dry, it’s washable, and I can’t get enough of it. My feet are pretty dang happy about it too!
Not too much to say about these except sweet! One of those necessities for us gals, and this is the brand I use anyway so that’s a bonus.
YAY LOTION! I am a lotion fiend, and this is a great one. Not too greasy, and smells amazing without being overpowering. I love lavender, and the combo of lavender and chamomile is so wonderful and refreshing.
This is the only item in the box I was sad to see. Despite knowing what a great healthy snack they are, I really don’t like almonds. Or blueberries! So this couldn’t be a worse combo for me – luckily the hubs was all too happy to sample these for me! He said they were, “Absolutely delicious!”, wished the bag was bigger, and has now added them to the grocery list so we can have them all the time. I’m thinking he liked them!
And lastly, some coupons. Won’t use the shake ones, but definitely pumped for a free yogurt!
I’d say the #GoVoxBox was a success! Lots a great new products for me, and I love that they are practical things. I have one invite left if you’d like to join Influenster – it’s completely free and you choose how much or how little you want to use it! Just comment and I’ll send the invite your way – first person to ask for it, gets it. 🙂
