Sunshine VoxBox from Influenster

Taking a little break from the travel posts to share my Sunshine VoxBox!

I was very excited to receive the Sunshine VoxBox from Influenster! It had been quite a while since I had received a VoxBox, and I had almost given up on ever receiving one again when I got an email saying I had been selected for one! 
Here's what was inside...
I received the Sunshine VoxBox card listing the products, information on the products, and prices of all the items (which valued almost $30.)

I also received a coupon for the Bark Thins and three coupons for Dickinson's products.

Now, onto the reviews!
Dickinson's Original Witch Hazel Refreshingly Clean Cleansing Cloths

These cleansing wipes work really well. They have a bit of an odd smell to them (not sure what the smell is, it's not witch hazel, because I don't mind the smell of regular witch hazel. But it's almost maybe a plain yogurt type smell?) Anyways, it's not weird enough to not use them. I like that they use all natural ingredients, there are no chemicals, and they do not leave your skin feeling sticky! I purchased some Burt's Bees facial wipes when I was traveling in Europe, and they made my skin feel so sticky and gross! I wish I would have had these! They leave my skin feeling fresh and clean. They work pretty good at removing makeup too! I would definitely recommend these!
Infusium 23 Moisture Replenisher Leave-in Smoothing Creme

The Infusium 23 Moisture Replenisher is okay. It works pretty well the first day at controling frizz (and I do not really have a frizz problem to begin with.) but I do need to apply more the second day. The smell isn't too bad. It's not great but it's not bad either. It did leave my hair feeling smooth without that icky buildup feel. Not sure I would actually go out and purchase this product on my own, but it wasn't too bad for a free product.
Vaseline Intensive Care Aloe Sooth Spray Moisturizer

I did not like this product at all. I do not like Vaseline brand products to being with (considering that they are full of really harsh chemicals). This product was not different and contained a lot of chemicals. 

This does not rub in very well, does not spray on evenly, and did not moisturize my skin at all. I live in a really dry climate and put some on and a few hours later my skin looked just as dry as it did before. I've tried it multiple times and I even tried spraying some on thick on my feet and then putting on socks before I went to bed and my feet were still very dry in the morning (as opposed to my natural lotion that will keep my feet moisturized for days.)

I also do not get the point of this being a spray-on moisturizer. If you use it in the house you have to stand in the tub/shower so it doesn't get all over. I thought that it was like spray-on sun screen where you don't have to rub it in, but you spray this on and then you still have to rub it in. I would rather have regular lotion than more expensive spray-on lotion.

The price point is too high for the amount of product you get. (Influenster values this product at $6.49.) so it is not a good deal.

The only positive thing I have to say about this is that it did have a pleasant scent to it, since it's aloe (although not a natural aloe smell.) And it used compressed air as a propellant instead of more harsh chemicals.

This is not a product I would recommend.
SinfulColors Nail Polish

I wasn't sure about the color of this nail polish when I pulled it out of the box. It's not typically a color I would pick out for myself, but, once I tried it on I kinda liked it! It is bright, but it is a nice color. It was thick enough that I only had to put on one coat and it went on nicely. Considering it retails for around $1.99, I was surprised at the quality. I would definitely purchase nail polish from SinfulColors. (The color is called "Ocean Side.)
Blue Diamond Sriracha Almonds

I had never had anything sriracha flavored, so I wasn't sure what to expect when I saw this package of almonds. I do like almonds and was interested in trying these. I was a little worried they were going to be really spicy, but they weren't. I actually really liked these sriracha almonds! I shared them with my sister and brother and they both liked them too! Not sure if I would buy them again, but they were pretty good!
barkTHINS

These were SO good! I received a coupon for a free package of barkTHINS (they were a little difficult to get, Fred Meyer's didn't carry them and Target had trouble getting the coupon to work. I had to go back in and they had to refund me the money because the coupon didn't work the first time.) Anyways, I wasn't sure what flavor to try (I was stuck trying to choose between the almond or pretzel.) but I ended up getting the almond.

They're GMO free (which is really great!), no preservatives or chemicals, only real ingredients. They tasted really good! Sometimes dark chocolate can have a really bitter taste and that wasn't the case with these. I am not a fan of Hershey's chocolate (it's way too sweet!) and this was neither overly sweet or bitter. I shared these with my family and all 5 of us really enjoyed them! And there are lots of great flavors! Coconut, pretzel, pumpkin seed, blueberry quinoa, and, of course, the almond.

I would definitely buy these again! 

Thank you to Influenster for sending me the Sunshine VoxBox!
