This is my third #VoxBox that I have received from Influenster ~ the #RefreshVoxBox. I received these products complimentary for testing purposes from Influenster.
My package came and I opened it up to see what goodies I received!
These chips are really excellent! I never tried Beanitos before and now they are on my list for a nice alternative to chips. They are light and crispy, with a delicate crunch and very tasty. I really enjoyed the sea salt one ~ that had just enough salt on the chip. These chips are made from white beans ~ Beanitos also makes chips in black beans and pinto beans ~ not corn, are gluten-free, contain no fillers, low-glycemic and they pack 6 grams of fiber per serving! Americans do not eat enough fiber, but they do love their salty, crispy snacks, so this is one way to get that fiber in your bod! You can purchase these just about anywhere.
Check out Beanitos FAQ if you want to learn more about these tasty chips.
Ingredients for White Bean Chips with Sea Salt: Whole Navy Beans, Whole Grain Long Brown Rice and/or Long Grain White Rice, Pure Sunflower and/or Safflower Oil, Guar Bean Gum, Sea Salt.

Covergirl Ultra Smooth Foundation This product was the perfect shade for my skin tone (825 Buff Beige) ~ I usually wear MAC NW20. The pink silicone applicator is supposed to help smooth the foundation on your skin for a seamless look, but I found that it didn’t really work well on my skin ~ perhaps my skin is too oily? But I did like the color, the way the foundation felt and its coverage. It went on with full coverage without making my face feel like I had something on it. If I need to have this type of coverage, which I normally do not, I will use this product. It is one of the better drugstore foundations I have tried recently.
Description: This innovative new foundation with optical concealers and Olay skin-smoothing serum features an all-new breakthrough applicator—now you can instantly smooth away redness, blemishes and unevenness for a flawless effect. Medium coverage, with a natural finish…smooth is the new sexy! Revolutionary foundation and applicator minimizes the appearance of fine facial hair and flow. Includes Olay hair smoothing serum. Applicator works with foundation to glide foundation over flaws and facial hair for a perfectly smooth look

L’OCCITANE Shea Butter Light Comforting Cream I am not sure if this is a face cream or a hand cream, but I am using it on my hands. EDIT: It is a face cream ~ however, due to its scent, I am still using it on my hands, as the scent is too much for my face. It is a lightweight cream that has a light baby powdery and creamy scent to it ~ it absorbs quickly into my skin and is hydrating ~ however, I think that this 5% shea butter cream would be better suited in the warmer months, as right now, I do need a more thicker cream for the winter months as my hands really do get chapped and raw with the biting cold winds and snow. If you like scented facial creams and you have combo/oily skin, this might be a really good facial moisturizer, as it only contains 5% shea butter and is lightweight enough to use as a facial lotion.
Description: The Light Shea Butter Comforting Cream, with its fine and non-greasy texture, is formulated with 5% shea butter to answer the essential needs of normal to combination skin, including sensitive skin types. Lastingly moisturized (48h)**, skin is supple and soft. As protected against external aggressions, skin stays comfortable all day long. In Burkina Faso, women produce shea butter by hand. While one might expect this technique to weaken and damage the skin, in reality it leaves it incredibly soft. L’OCCITANE discovered that the shea butter produced in Burkina Faso using traditional methods is particularly rich in omega 6 and karitene. These molecules have exceptional properties and help to moisturize, nourish and give extra protection to the skin every day. **Effectiveness test on 12 volunteers

Listerine Pocketpaks I have tried these before and I like them! These are little dissolvable minty breath strips that you just place on your tongue and as it dissolves, they freshen your breath as it kills the germs that cause bad breath! I received Fresh Burst, but they come in cool mint, arctic berry and cool heat. The cool heat sounds pretty good ~ I wonder if that is a cinnamon flavor 🙂 For those who do not like to have a candy or gum but something that just melts in your mouth quickly, Pocketpaks are for you! You can get these just about anywhere ~ I’ve seen them in the gum section and the dental section of drugstores and grocery stores.
Description: LISTERINE POCKETPAKS® Oral Care Strips dissolve instantly, freshening your breath by killing 99.9% of bad-breath germs*. * in lab studies

Montagne Jeunesse Black Seaweed Peel Off Mask I love peel off masks and this one from Montagne Jeunesse (MJ) is a black seaweed mask, which is a detox mask. It removers impurities, cleans out pores, and leaves my face feeling deep-cleaned and soft. I wish MJ was easier to find ~ I can sometimes find it online at Ulta, but they don’t always have it in-store. Ebay is another place where you can purchase these as well as amazon.com You just apply the mask and then wait 10-15 minutes to dry and then just peel off! These are very affordable and I do think that they are a great (and cheaper) alternative to
Luminizing Black Mask. This mask seems to be very difficult to find online, so I do hope that MJ makes them more available soon! I love that they do not animal test and are proud supporters of PETA (which gets such a bad rap here in the USA)
Description: Our chopped black Laver Seaweed (from the Welsh seaside) and crushed Sea Buckthorn berries are pressed together to make our black peel off mask. A seaside detox to cleanse deeply and peel off dirt and grease weekly

Orgain Organic Nutritional Shake I am not a huge fan of shakes, as I always think they taste like SlimFast and I drank a lot of those in my day! This one tastes like a SlimFast, but it is much more healthier than SlimFast, that is for sure. It is an organic shake and I used my coupon to get a free Protein version in Iced Café Mocha. This has a lot of calories ~ 255 ~ and only 2 grams of fiber, but if you are needing up amp up your protein, this has 35% of the daily value for protein (16 g of organic protein). Lots of sugar (12 g) and 32 g organic complex carbs. This is a meal replacement and I suppose if you needed something quick like this, this would be a good substitute. It has 10 certified organic fruits and vegetables, 23 vitamins and minerals, free of soy, preservatives, artificial sweeteners and corn syrup. It is gluten free and soy free.
Ingredients: Water, Orgain Organic Protein Blend (Organic Whey Protein Concentrate, Organic Grass Fed Milk Protein Concentrate), Orgain Organic Carbohydrate Blend (Organic Evaporated Cane Juice, Organic Brown Rice Syrup, Organic Rice Syrup Solids), Organic High Oleic Sunflower Oil, Organic Natural Flavors, Organic Inulin, Organic Guar Gum, Organic Arabic Gum, Xanthan Gum, Organic Rice Bran Extract, Sodium Phosphate, Tricalcium Phosphate, Potassium Citrate, Potassium Chloride, Carrageenan Gum, Sea Salt, Organic Stevia

DenTek Comfort Clean Floss Picks & DenTek Fun Flossers My dentist is always on my case in regards to my flossing. I didn’t grow up flossing and that might be the reason why I had such issues with my teeth as an adult. I do floss now, but I still hate it! However, these picks have been the best thing for my teeth! I’ve used DenTek for several years now and it is so easy and simple ~ no more wrapping string around your finger and have that disgusting used wet piece of floss hanging out in the trash bin, only to be nabbed by your cats and played with 😦 These are little plastic picks that have the floss already strung between the two edges and you just work that floss, using the pick in-between your teeth and that’s it! Just throw the pic away (my cats aren’t interested in the pick…) and you have flossed your teeth. They also make them in fun colors with an easy to use handle for kids, but I will use those fun flossers as well. These are really handy and I do keep a pack in my desk at work, as you should floss after every meal! DenTek also makes these for your hard-to-reach back teeth as well. You can find these in the oral care/dental aisle of any grocery store and drug store.
Comfort Clean Floss Picks Description: DenTek Comfort Clean Floss Pick’s silky floss tape is gentle on teeth and gums while comfortably removing food and plaque. Clinically proven as effective as rolled floss! Flossing is important to the health of your teeth and gums. DenTek’s Comfort Clean Floss Picks make it comfortable and easy:
- Ultra thin Silky Comfort Floss Tape that slides smoothly between teeth
- Minty flavor that leaves your mouth feeling fresh
- Textured Pick that deep cleans between teeth and stimulates gums
- Tongue Cleaner that fights bad breath
Fun Flossers Description: DenTek Fun Flossers make flossing fun for children while teaching healthy oral care habits for life. Clinically proven as effective as rolled floss. DenTek Fun Flossers encourage flossing:
- Easy to grasp handle for both kids and parents
- Multi-filament scrubbing floss fits kids’ teeth
- Small flosser head designed for kids’ mouths
- Wild Fruit flavor that kids love
