Mama Nibbles: Mom VoxBox 2012 Review

Mom VoxBox 2012 Review

     What is a Voxbox?  Well they are a free box of products that Influenster sends out to a chosen group of people to test,review and keep.  You can sign up at http://www.influenster.com/.  Be sure to follow them on Twitter and Facebook to find out when boxes will be released.

     This is my 1st Voxbox and it's just meh for me.  I would have been more impressed and had a better experience with reviewing if all the items were full size.  I also felt like this box was just random items, the only item I'd really want as a mom would be the tea.  It's always fun to get something in the mail though so at least there was that.  Inside my box I received the following items:
  • Ivory Bar Soap
     I had no idea what to do with the soap bar, who really uses bar soap anymore?  I have used this soap in the past when bar soap was still "in" and it really dried my skin out, left a nasty film on it and I had a slight allergic reaction of sorts to it.  Our family doesn't and so I stuffed this in a pillow case and threw it in a dark corner of my bat cave basement to help freshen it up since the Ivory soap bar had such a heavy scent.  ETA: I did try it out, still had the same issues as in the past...burns my skin!
  • DenTek Comfort Clean & Fun Flossers
     Our family already does use the flossers from DenTek so those were nothing new, we really like how convenient they are and tossing a couple into my purse is really easy, they are nice to have around and really who wants to be talking and later find out they had spinach in their teeth?   
  • Stash Tea Superfruits Tea Sampler and Nektar Sweetener
     Stash Tea Superfruits Sampler was absolutely delicious, I am a tea lover and would totally recommend this to anybody.  The Nektar Sweetener was decent.  I already use another honey crystals brand that are much better so if I compare the two, Nektar was kind of week in flavor.
  • Quaker Soft Baked Cookie
     I looooved the Quaker Soft Baked Cookie!  The cookie I received was all smashed up and kind of on the dry side but still, it was tasty and nothing a tall glass of milk could not fix.  These cookies are a great source of fiber and when I am not feeling like baking my own I will buy these for the family.
  • imPRESS Press-On Manicure by Broadway Nails
     I felt like the imPRESS nails were made for an infant, the nails are much to small to fit on a grown woman's nails!  I was sent a bright purple color and there would be no way in hay I would be caught dead wearing that color.  I gave the nails to my 8 year old daughter who tried them on and within 24 hours had 4 fall off...48 hours later they were all off and it's not like she is rough with her hands in any way.  These were a big disappointment.
  • Lingo Dino Language Learning Programs for Kids (demo dvd) 
     The language DVD was absolutely terrible.  I wish it could have been better but it seriously sounded like a little kid was screaming into a microphone when they did the voice-over LOL!  I turned it off immediately and it will probably end up in the trash. 
*So that was my 100% honest experience with the items I received.  These items were free through Influenster but that did not in any way sway my point of view.
