Sugar and Spring VOXBOX

Saturday morning…Ding Dong ….not fully dressed, hair not done so I stayed partially hidden…hopefully they’ll go away….hearing nothing….peered through the side window to see The Brown Man running quickly down the front yard…he jumped back into his truck and drove away….opened the door slowly looking for the familiar brown box delivery…looked left…then right…then looked down…what the…what is this bright orange box…oh wow…my 1st Influenster VOXBOX!!!

UPS package delivery

Not fully dressed, hair not done…called #2 son to come downstairs quickly...what Ma?…here take this camera and go outside and take a picture...what?...go outside and take a picture of the box on the front step…what is it?...boy, just go out and take a picture…and not too close so you can see our address…what?…take the picture puhleeze (closed the door)…IT’S COLD OUT HERE!

Pic taken now he wants to open it up, grabs the letter opener while I stand aside, heart beating a mile a minute…I’ve read about these boxes but never actually saw one…it was exciting…son slits through the packing tape…lifts the lid and ta-da…this is what “we” got:

Colgate mouthwash toothpaste and toothbrush

belVita Breakfast Biscuits and Nectresse

Son is not impressed…“Ma…can I have the biscuits, I’m hungry…next time tell them to send a car to test drive”, and with that off he went.

Inside the VoxBox were the following products:

Vaseline Spray & Go Moisturizer Total Moisture 6.5 oz can

This was by far my favorite product because of the spray-on application which is how I buy my sunscreen.  It was not oily or overpowering in fragrance, also not thick and sticky which can be a problem when putting on clothes immediately after applying lotion.

Vaseline Spray & Go Moisturizer

Nectresse Natural Sweetener – 40 packets

I don’t use white sugar and don’t particularly like the bitter taste of artificial sweeteners but this was neither.  It’s not raw sugar nor is it an artificial substance, it’s 100% natural fruit extract with zero calories.  I used 1 packet in my coffee and a packet in my Spinach Smoothie this morning and it was really good.  A recipe booklet with a measurement conversion chart was included so I’ll bake something this weekend and post the results next week.

Nectresse

Dickinson’s Original Witch Hazel Oil Controlling Towelettes – 20 count box

These towelettes were designed to be used as a quick refresher to remove dirt and oils from face and neck.   I used one after removing my makeup for the night, the smell wasn’t pleasant but Witch Hazel has never been.  It also contains aloe which gave it a cool and refreshing feeling that didn’t dry my skin or leave a residue.  I think these will be good after gardening, doing yard work, or after poolside lounging, I’ll let you know in a few months.

belvita Breakfast Biscuits

My son ate the sample but since I had previously purchased  I knew that I liked them.  I’ve bought the single packs from Walmart as well as the boxes of 5, each contain 4 biscuits per pack.  They are a perfect commuting breakfast because they don’t crumble and fall apart.  A good source of fiber, I especially like the Blueberry flavor and bought a box yesterday from Super G.

Colgate Optic White Toothpaste, Mouthwash and Toothbrush

I suffer from Periodontal Disease so I am very particular with the products that I use for oral care.  I regularly use a Rotadent Rotary toothbrush at night with a toothpaste for sensitive teeth; a manual toothbrush in the morning as well as for brushing at work.  I also use a mouth rinse but this was the first time using Colgate Optic White Mouthwash.  I immediately knew it contained peroxide by the way it foamed in my mouth, as a kid I used to brush with peroxide and baking soda.  The Optic White Toothpaste was Sparkling Mint, did not have a gritty texture and didn’t irritate my sensitive teeth and gums.  I really like the Colgate Optic White Toothbrush because of the whitening cups, soft bristles, cheek and tongue cleaner.

I am  using all three products together as suggested for whiter teeth in 5 days, I will report my results next week.

Hello Friends and Happy Tuesday

There are only a few traces of yesterday’s snow and according to the meteorologist, Mother Nature will be having a hot flash so all that remains will be melted by Friday.  It’s tough for people not to accept the existence of Global Warming especially with all of these varying weather conditions around the world.  Al Gore has been speaking out for years, now just maybe people will take him more seriously.  Okay, stepping down off the soap box.

Most of you know that I love…love…love…shoes and will be the first to admit that I have too many, but it’s not something new, I have been a shoe lover since High School.  I’ve always had to have the latest styles in different colors…pastel pinks…mellow yellow…aqua marine blue….heels…flats…sandals…boots – I loved them all.  These days I don’t buy as many as I used to but when I find a bargain, I am on it like a heat seeking missile (remember the Target haul?)  Because I have so many I can’t remember ever wearing the same pair two days in a row that was until today, this is the first time.  There are two reasons for this, first I am still trying to get my closet in order and secondly, these Granny boots are comfortable and look cute with this outfit!
