The Influenster Violet Vox Box Review

Hi y'all! Today I have a review on some products from my most recent complimentary Vox Box from Influenster, the Violet Vox Box!  This box is definitely one of my favorites I've ever had :)

Let's start with a list of the products I received:
-Goody Athletique Ouchless Headwrap
-Montagne Jeunesse Red Earth Clay Spa Mask
-Sally Hansen Triple Shine Polish, in Make Waves
-Not Your Mother's Clean Freak Dry Shampoo
-SoyJoy Dark Chocolate & Cherries Bar

I'll be doing individual reviews for NYM Clean Freak & MJ Spa Mask (I'll update with links)

Goody Athletique Ouchless Headwrap, $6.00
Goody Facebook, Goody Website, Where to Buy

This is a wide headband so that it stays in plays and keeps flyaways out of your face.  The fabric is a moisture-wicking material similar to many athletic clothes, designed to keep you cool and dry. It's also reversible so you get 2 looks with one product.  It is very comfortable to wear, stays in place exceptionally well, and it is very cute!

Overall: I love the headband and I'm excited to try some other products from this brand.  I hope I can find one in a neutral (black/grey) color to be more versatile.

Sally Hansen Triple Shine Nail Polish Make Waves, $4.99.
Sally Hansen Facebook, Sally Hansen Website, Where to Buy

The website describes this as "The gloss is protected with the Ultimate Shield Complex, exclusive to Sally Hansen, designed to help polish withstand the wear and tear of everyday living for non-stop shine."  I have to agree that this polish is very shiny, and the color I received is great!  It's a bright blue metallic shimmer, and it has a lovely green flash to it.  It's a bit sheer but covers in 3-4 thin coats.  The only issue I had is the cap.  I've seen a lot of complaints about the large outer cap being pointless and wasteful, until using it I didn't mind the larger cap being added for people who prefer wide caps.  The issue I have is that it is truly pointless, you can't open the bottle until you remove the outer cap, so it's more of a safety cap than a comfort feature. 

Overall: Love the polish, would be great if it required less coats & they removed the "safety cap" but I will still buy this brand again

SoyJoy Dark Chocolate & Cherries Bar, $0.99
SoyJoy Facebook, SoyJoy Website, Where to Buy

Their site describes this as "Indulge the healthy way with Dark Chocolate Cherry SOYJOY. Whole soy plays host to dark chocolate and real cherries in this dessert lover's delight. Lose yourself in its flavor and always have your chocolate craving covered."  The also state that the bars are gluten free, all natural & contain real cherries.  The flavor of the dark chocolate and cherries was great, two of my favorite flavors to combine actually.  However I didn't enjoy this bar because of the texture, which I admit may be an acquired taste as I've never had any soy products.  I would describe the texture as similar to a diet bar or meal replacement bar.  It was very dense (as opposed to light and fluffy) and a bit gritty. 

Overall: I would try another flavor and see if the issue was isolated to one flavor, but I have a feeling it's just an acquired taste.

I received this product complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes.
