#XOVoxBox Review

2015-02-26 14.19.00As mentioned in my Adore Me post (here), I received the #XOVoxBox from Influenster. In order to receive VoxBoxes from Influenster, you just need to sign up, and take their surveys and fill out product reviews, and if you match one of their campaigns, you’ll be notified that a box is coming your way!2015-02-26 14.23.00

I received my box sometime last week, but I wanted to wait until I tried all of the products before reviewing them! Here’s what came in my #XOVoxBox:

Tide Pods + Febreeze, 12 count, $4.992015-02-26 14.42.30

I actually already use Tide Pods, because I find that they last longer than detergent for me. I hadn’t tried the Tide Pods + Febreeze until now, and I actually really love the way these smell. Great job Influenster, I’ll probably buy these from now on because I really love the smell!

Colgate Optic White Toothbrush + Built-In Whitening Pen, $14.992015-02-26 14.42.00

I think this is a really great idea to have the built-in whitening pen in the bottom of the toothbrush. If I used medium bristle toothbrushes, I would probably love this toothbrush, however, my dentist has instructed me to use ultra soft bristles, especially because I have sensitive gums, so I unfortunately won’t get much use out of the toothbrush. I do really like the whitening pen though. It tastes similar to the film leftover from using Crest White Stripes, except that you don’t have to keep it on your teeth forever.

Colgate Optic White Express White Toothpaste, $3.99

I don’t really think you can go wrong with toothpaste. This toothpaste claims to give you whiter teeth after 3 days of use, however, I can’t tell you if it actually worked or not because I just went to the dentist yesterday for my routine cleaning. It tastes good though!

John Frieda Frizz Ease Beyond Smooth Collection (shampoo, conditioner, primer), $9.992015-02-26 14.40.33

This shampoo smells so good. And because we are still having those crappy winter days, my hair has been getting staticy. I washed my hair with this stuff and left it natural for the first day. I had no frizz or static. The next day, I straightened it, and still no static or frizz, so I’m impressed.

SkinFix Hand Repair Cream, $10.002015-02-26 14.43.11

This stuff is expensive! I was in Target the other day and passed this on an end cap, and the smallest size you could buy was $17.99! I used it a couple of days last week and it did seem to keep my hands from drying out. It’s fragrance-free and made with natural ingredients, so I think it’s a great hand cream for people with sensitive skin and allergies. It is made with colloidal oatmeal, so even though it’s fragrance-free, I feel like there is a faint scent left on my skin after use. I don’t think I would purchase this, because I really like hand creams with fragrances, but if you wanted a fragrance-free, natural option, this is a great hand cream that works.

Adore Me Box Review

You all already know how much I love subscription boxes, but I had never heard of this one until I received one complimentary from Influenster. Adore Me is a monthly subscription box where you receive a lingerie set, sleepwear, swimwear, etc. of your own choice each month.2015-02-10 17.49.10

The way it works (VIP Membership):

  • At the beginning of each month, you are charged a credit of $39.95 to choose any set (from various categories as mentioned above) to be sent to your door. You have until the 5th of each month to choose your set, skip that month, or just save your credit to use later in the month.
  • The first set you choose is only $24.95, and every 6th set you choose is free.
  • They offer free shipping and free exchanges, and you get $10 off every set.
  • There is no membership fee, and you have no obligation to buy.

Because I feel like I have a lot of bras and panties right now, I decided to order a cute little sleepwear set. The cami and short set I ordered is called Kristina (I ordered an XS) and is a nylon and spandex blend, and can be found here. Unfortunately, the straps on the cami are not adjustable, but they do state that before you order it (so if you’re not the most proportional person like me, it might not fit you exactly right).2015-03-02 11.38.01

The top is really cute on me, but I will say that I’m glad it’s a sleepwear top and not an actual cami that I would ever wear out in public, because the correct size for my body is always too small for my chest, but if I go up a size, the straps are way too long on my short torso. The shorts fit me perfectly in an XS. The quality is nice, and this set isn’t necessarily something I’ve seen out and about in stores.2015-03-02 11.42.02

I’m considering ordering something from my March showroom, so I can review a different product from them, but I may skip this month. I’m not sure yet, but I do have until this Thursday to make up my mind.

Overall, if you’re not a shopper that loves going to Victoria’s Secret and Aerie on the regular, this would be a great subscription box for you, because the lingerie comes to you, instead of having to trek to the mall to find it. It’s also something fun to get in the mail each month that’s just for you, and they have swim products on their site (that are cheaper than a lot of swim options out there), so you don’t have to just use it for lingerie products each month.

Do you subscribe to Adore Me, or have you ever heard of it? Let me know in the comments!
