#WellnessVoxBox from Influenster

Nothing is better than coming home to a big, bright package full of awesome goodies after a long day at work. It doesn’t matter how old you are or how mature you are – surprises in the mail are still super fun, as long as those surprises aren’t bills, that is. Thanks to all the amazing people over at Influenster, I get VoxBoxes full of awesome products all the time to test out and review. Today, I’m blogging about the most recent Wellness Voxbox.

This Voxbox came with some really great products that I was excited to try out.

My favorite product from this VoxBox had to be the Colgate Enamel Health mouthwash. A lot of mouthwashes on the market advertise themselves as a “no burn” mouthwash, where your mouth doesn’t feel all numb and burnt afterwards like they do with standard mouthwashes. I’ve learned that with a few exceptions, all mouthwashes leave your mouth feeling that burn but at different intensities. This Colgate Enamel Health one though – it’s one of the few exceptions. Plus, I just loved the minty aftertaste, which made me feel like I had just popped in five Altoids or chewed on an actual mint leaf instead of the artificial, chemical-y minty taste you get with regular toothpaste and mouthwash.

The Jergens Wet Skin Moisturizer really surprised me, in a good way. I was skeptical of a moisturizer that you apply in the shower, like this one instructs you to do, since it seemed like the product would either slide off super easily or would mostly be rubbed off onto your towel. But I was pleasantly surprised that my skin felt really soft and not at all dry as the day went on. The only problem I had with it was that I wasn’t ever sure just how much of the product to apply – even though the instructions said a dime-sized amount for your arms and a quarter-sized amount for your legs, it always felt like the product was sliding off my body with the excess water. All in all though, I think the product is fantastic.

As for the Olay Active Botanicals Refreshing Gel Facial Cleanser, I used it a handful of times and each time it left my face feeling super clean and refreshed. I also enjoyed how soft and moisturized my skin was after each use.

There were two products in this VoxBox from Attitude, which presents itself as using worry-free ingredients in their products. The Attitude dishwashing liquid honestly felt and worked like any other dishwashing liquid out there. I didn’t really see much of a difference – other than the fact that the ingredients in the Attitude brand were carcinogen-free, which actually made a little bit of a difference to me because my mom passed away from cancer. So any product that removes carcinogens from my life, no matter how seemingly insignificant, made it a great product in my eyes. Same thing goes for the Attitude shampoo as well. I loved how soft it made my hair feel after I washed and blow-dried it, but I didn’t see much of a difference compared to some of the other shampoos I use now. The whole worry-free ingredient thing was a big plus though.

And finally, the Urgent RX quick dissolve powder worked like a charm when I had a killer headache at work. Working with the public with an intense headache is like a disaster waiting to happen, but the Urgent RX powder took care of my headache rather quickly. I’d have to try it again just to see if it’ll work a second time, but as of right now, I think it’s a lifesaver for anyone who has a really bad headache at the most inconvenient time.

So those are my reviews of these great products, thanks to Influenster. Do you have any favorites in this list? Any that you’re going to try or not try, based on what I said?
