I received my first Influenster box – the Revive VoxBox – a couple of weeks ago. I wanted to make sure I tried everything before I wrote a review. The box was filled with products from SnackWells, SheaMoisture, Kauai Coffee, and the Vitamin Shoppe.
The SnackWells Dark Chocolate Mocha biscuit thins came broken but I was still able to enjoy a few. They were unlike anything I’ve tried before. The package noted that they’re made with real coffee so coffee drinkers will definitely love these! I tried these out with a cup of coffee. These biscuit thins would be great first thing in the morning or as a pick me up (especially that 2pm drag that happens everyday at work). I could definitely see buying these in other flavors! Four biscuits contained 200 calories and 24g of whole grain. SnackWells Biscuit Thins cost between $2.98-3.96 each and are available in caramel mocchiato, french vanilla latte, and dark chocolate mocha.
The Brew & Renew compostable pods came in three kinds – Hills Bros. 100% Columbian Premium Arabica in medium roast, Kauai Coffee in Garden Isle medium roast, and Chock Full o’Nuts Midtown Manhattan in medium roast. I’ve had Chock Full o’ Nuts before but the other two were new to me. These single serve pods were easy to use and fit perfectly in my Keurig. I tried the Kauai Coffee in Garden Isle and it was pretty good. I usually stick to basic coffee and use flavored creamers to taste but starting with a flavored blend let me skip that step and use regular creamer. The Hills Bros, Chock Full o’Nuts, and Kauai Coffee cups are 100% compostable. A 12 ct box is $6.99 meaning you only spend 58 cents per cup.
The Vitamin Shoppe shake mixes – Plnt by V plant protein in vanilla, Next Step Fit n’ Full Shake in cookies n cream and BodyTech Whey Tech Pro 24 in strawberries & cream along with a BodyTech bottle with removable shaker. The Plnt by V shake has 19g protein and is free of gluten, dairy, soy and nuts. The vanilla taste was good, it was subtle and wasn’t overpowering at all. It tasted like a vanilla shake without the sugar. I used the BodyTech bottle to mix the pack up with a cup of cold water. I loved the bottle because it made mixing shakes on the go easy. The shaker piece was removable making clean up easy as well. The Vitamin Shoppe product line includes supplements, herbs, meal replacement shakes with the protein powers available for $19.99-24.99 for 12 packets.
SheaMoisture was one brand I was really familiar with. As a naturally curly head I use a bunch of SheaMoisture products but hadn’t tried the Fuit Fusion Coconut Water weightless shampoo and weightless crème rinse – both with Imbe Oil & Aloe. As with all SheaMoisture products, there are no parabens, phthalates, paraffin, propylene glycol, mineral oil, synthetic fragrance or color, DEA, sulfates and they don’t animal test. I’ve been following the curly girl method so I shampoo infrequently and don’t use products with cones (any product ending in –cone i.e. dimethicone. Here’s more info on how damaging cones can be.) and SheaMoisture doesn’t include cones in any of their products. The weightless shampoo smelled awesome! It lathered nicely and rinsed clean without any problems. Although the package recommended leaving the crème rinse in for 1-2 minutes, I left it in for 10. I usually use a conditioner to detangle my curls and would have used the crème rinse to do so if I had more of it. My hair was left super curly and soft. I have to buy full sizes of both of these ASAP. Both the Fruit Fusion Coconut Water Weightless Shampoo and Weightless Creme Rinse are $10.99 for 13oz.
The products in the influenster Revive Vox Box were provided for free for an honest review.
Thanks for checking out my first Influenster review! Let me know if you’ve tried anything here and what you thought about it! I know this post wasn’t polish related but have no worries…
I’m doing my first 31 day challenge starting tomorrow! I’ll be coming up with the first day’s prompt either tonight or early tomorrow. Come back to see what I came up with for day 1.
