It’s no secret that I’m a lover of all things beauty-related, but what many of you may not know is that I’m very interested in health and fitness as well. So when I found out that I would be receiving Influenster’s Go VoxBox, filled with beauty, health and fitness products, I was beyond excited. Over the past few weeks I’ve been testing and trying each item; I’ve even discovered some new can’t-live-without-it products. Without further ado, here’s a look at the #GoVoxBox.
Muller Greek Corner Yogurt (#MullerQuaker): I had seen commercials for these delicious-looking yogurts and wondered if they were as good as they looked. However, I’m not a fan of Greek yogurt, so I never actually tried one until I received a coupon for a free one from Influenster. I was absolutely blown away. These yogurts are smooth and creamy and the fruit is so delicious. I often find Greek yogurt to be too sour and thick, but that was not the case with these. I have been buying Muller yogurts every week since trying that first one, and I’ve liked every flavor that I’ve tried. A definite winner!
Blue Diamond Blueberry Flavored Almonds (#GetYourGoodGoing): I love almonds, and Blue Diamond is a trusted brand, but I was not a fan of the blueberry flavor. It tasted quite artificial; I prefer my almonds straight up!
The Vitamin Shoppe Next Step Fit N Full Protein Shakes & Jaxx Shaker (#NextStep): I’ve never been much a protein shake kind of girl, so I wasn’t expecting to love these shakes. And while I wouldn’t say that I loved any of them, I did like the chocolate and berry flavors (vanilla was not for me!), and noticed that I was bursting with energy for hours after drinking them. The Jaxx Shaker worked well and didn’t leak, so if you are a protein shake person, I’d recommend it for a way to mix your shakes quickly and take them with you when you go!
Playtex Sport Fresh Balance (#PlayOn): I’ve tried Playtex tampons before, and I’ve always thought they were top-notch, but these were by far the most comfortable tampons I’ve ever used! These are my new go-to.
PROFOOT Pedi-Rock (#GoPROFOOT): This has quickly become part of my regular beauty routine. This soft foot file can be used wet or dry (I prefer wet) to quickly remove rough patches and calluses. I was so impressed with how quick and effective it was that I’ve replaced my old foot scrub with it!
PROFOOT Triad Orthotic (#GoPROFOOT): According to the information that accompanied these shoe inserts, the Triad Orthotic is clinically proven to relieve knee, leg and back pain. Since I’m training to run a 5K, I was excited to try these. I instantly noticed that my knees felt better, specifically when running down steep hills. I also felt that I had more bounce in my stride, and that running uphill felt significantly easier. I’m not sure that these did anything to make my back feel any better, but I think they definitely improved my overall performance.
Aqua Spa Relax Body Crème (#RelaxWithAquaSpa): Another favorite from the box, this hydrating but non-greasy body lotion has a heavenly lavender and chamomile scent and leaves skin silky smooth; I’ve taken to slathering it on my feet and legs after I use my Pedi-Rock! This also makes an excellent pre-bedtime lotion – the soothing scent will lull you to sleep and you’ll wake up feeling soft and refreshed!
