Review - Influenster Summer Beauty Voxbox

Hey everyone! Sorry for the recent lack of posts. My modem was broken and needed to get replaced. I am also going to start my new job soon which I am really excited about!

I was super excited to find out that I was chosen to receive Influenster's Summber Beauty Voxbox. I had a lot of fun trying out all of the different products that they sent for me to review. On to the review...

Hawaiian Tropic Silk Hydration Lotion Sunscreen SPF 30
» Price - $8.99 for 6oz bottle
» Description - With its ultra-luxurious hydrating silk ribbons, Hawaiian Tropic Silk Hydration lotion sunscreen nourishes and pampers skin while providing broad spectrum UVA and UVB protection, and 12-hour moisturization when out in the sun.
» My Review - I love this sunscreen! It has a yummy smell and feels super refreshing on my face. I love that when I put it on it does not feel heavy or slimy like some sunscreens feel on my face. It provided great coverage throughout the day and left my skin feeling extra smooth. I will definitely purchase this again as my go to sunscreen.

Tampax and Always Radiant Collection
» Price - Prices vary per box
» Description - Tampax and Always have come together to premiere the all-new, stylish Radiant Collection, a complete offering of premium tampons, pads, liners and wipes that meet all of a woman's feminine care needs. With designer packaging and wrappers, these products are must-have accessories for that time of the month.
» My Review - I thought this was a great idea to include a new feminine product for us women to try out. This comes with a really cute wristlet that has a pink and purple ombré effect to it. I think this is perfect to store in your purse so you can keep all of your feminine products in it. I will definitely be using this for my purse. The actual products worked fine as most of the products that I have tried from them have.

Quaker Soft Baked Bar in Banana Nut Bread
» Price - $3.29 for package of bars
» Description - Made with real bananas and almonds. Quaker Soft Bars in Banana Nut Bread flavor have tasty ingredients to help provide fuel to start your day. 5g Fiber, 20% of daily value of 5 B Vitamins and 6g of protein!
» My Review - For being 140 calories it was pretty filling. It has a strong banana taste at first but then the almonds give it the granola taste afterwards. It was pretty good. I'm not a big fan of banana bread but it still had a good taste. I don't know if I would purchase this again. I enjoy different Quaker bars over this one.

Sally Hansen Magnetic Nail Color
» Price - $9.99
» Description - NEW! Sally Hansen Magnetic Nail Color is summer's hottest nail trend that allows you to create a gorgeous 3-D nail art effect in just seconds! This unique formula was specially developed with metallic particles - just hold the built-in magnet over wet polish to reveal a unique design on the nail.
» My Review -I have tried magnetic nail polish before and I absolutely loved the cool effect that it gave my nails. The Sally Hansen one worked exactly like the first magnetic polish that I tried out but it costs less. I hope they start releasing more color options because I will definitely chose this brand to try out different colors and effects!

Sally Hansen Nails and Cuticles Hand Creme
» Price - $5.99 for full size bottle
» Description - Made with shea butter, the Sally Hansen Nails & Cuticles Creme softens hands, smooths cuticles and conditions nails. Active Moisture Complex formula with Ceramides helps to lock in nutrients so hands maintain their ideal moisture level. Offers 24 hour moisture and lasts through hand washings!
» My Review - This was very moisturizing but did not give my hands an oily feel to it. It had a subtle scent to it and lasted the entire day. Even after I washed my hands countless times during the day they did not feel dried out. I don't know if this could replace my hand cream from LUSH. I love the lemon scent that it leaves on my hands.

Clear Scalp & Hair Beauty Therapy
» Price - $4.99-$5.99 for 12.7oz and 12.9oz bottles
» Description - Did you know 99% of hair's natural strength comes from the scalp? Introducing CLEAR SCALP & HAIR BEAUTY THERAPY, a new line of shampoos and conditioners that nourish the scalp, and create the right foundation for strong, beautiful hair from root to tip. Wash your way to stronger hair in just 7 days!
» My Review - I wish I had more of this product. I have long, thick hair and ran out before using it for 7 days. I started to notice a nice shine to my hair. It did not look dead and weak. I loved the smell! It smelled really fresh and fruity. I will definitely purchase the full size shampoo but I am a bit skeptical on the conditioner because it felt a bit weak for me. It did not work as good as my current conditioner.
