TastyKake Voxbox Review

First of all, I have to say that I have been totally lousy at even attempting to blog! I've just been so down lately, like I want to crawl into bed and not come back out for a year or so. I'm still no where near closer to my goal of going to school to be a nail tech (despite having more polishes than my local salons).  But enough about my boring life, I came here to talk about the latest Voxbox I received!

 Infuenster sent me a box of TastyKake's newest offering, these cute little mini cakes.  They are perfectly sized for a quick snack for kiddo (or my mom!).  They are nice and moist, not dry like some packaged baked sweets can be.  Kiddo loves them.  They will likely make their way into the rounds of lunchbox treats!
I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes.

Frosty VoxBox review!

I'm back.

Still terrible at this blogging thing, though.

I was one of the lucky ones to get the Frosty VoxBox from Influenster.

I am in LOVE with all but 2 of these items!  

First up is the EcoTools Quick Volume Styler Hair Brush.  I am loving this brush for drying my bangs quickly.  It has large vents for faster dry time, and the dual bristles make quick work of de-tangling my hair.  The round barrel makes it really easy to style my bangs so that they aren't flat against my forehead.  I even use it on my son's hair to shorten the dry time of his insane amount of baby-fine hair.

Next is the Rimmel London eyeliner and remover.  The Eye Makeup Remover is awesome, I am so happy with it!  It's oil-free, which is great since I have oily enough skin as it is.  It has little to no smell to it, and quickly removes my eye makeup with just a few swipes.  The cap is shaped just so that I can get the product on a cotton swab without making a giant mess, making cleaning up eyeshadow fall-out and smoothing out eyeliner a breeze! 

The Scandaleyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal eyeliner in Black is a great addition to my eyeliner collection!  I love Rimmel's eyeliners, especially for lining my waterline, since they don't irritate my eyes, and have such a huge color payout.  It goes on smoothly, and blends just as well.

The N.Y.C. Sugar Plum Lip Color is a beautiful share of shimmering purple-ish mauvey pink that works well for a subtle wintery lip look.  It has a slight fruity scent that was not unpleasant or overpowering, and it didn't make my lips feel dried out.  Lasted a good few hours, but I did need to reapply after meals.  

The Red Vines Fruit Vines Bites were more of a hit with my son than with me, I don't care for gummy candies unless they are covered in sour stuff.  He said he likes that they are little pieces, instead of the long ropes, less sticky hands.  

I am so super excited that I got a regular sized container of Thyme from McCormick, since I was about to run out of my pervious one!  I use it in soups, pasta, and especially in pot roast!  I love McCormick brand spices and dried herbs, as I have had the best luck with flavor and amount for price!  The store brand is ok for some things that I'll finish up quickly, but McCormick ones have better flavor for longer, to me anyway. Plus I tend to be a bit "brand-loyal", and have used McCormick since I was a kid.

Now the two that I just wasn't impressed with: the Candy Cane tea and the No.7 Serum.

I am not a fan of most hot teas, but I gave this one a try while at work.  Even adding sugar did not make me like it. 

The No. 7 Serum was nice enough, but I felt that it made my face a bit oily, which I have enough problems with, lol.  The scent was kind meh, not bad but not really anything to write about.  

Overall, this was an awesome box, and I'm so thankful to Influenster for sending me these products to try!
