I recently joined Influenster and was selected to receive one of their awesome VoxBoxes! In case you haven't heard of it, Influenster is a community of trendsetters, social media hotshots, and educated consumers who live to give opinions of products and experiences. Today I wanted to tell you about the products that I got to test out in my complimentary Blosson VoxBox-- there were a few that I really loved!
Beanitos - One of my favorite items in this VoxBox was the samples of Beanitos black bean chips. These chips are made from black beans and no corn or wheat, so they are a healthy snack full of good fiber and protein. I loved the classic sea salt flavor paired with some good salsa. And the Chipotle BBQ flavor is spicy and delicious on its own!
Hair Food Root Cleansing Shampoo - I LOVE this shampoo! It has a great fruity, but not overpowering scent and my hair felt really clean after using it. This shampoo is filled with nutrients from natural ingredients like strawberry and ginger and like a juice cleanse for your body, this shampoo strips residue from your hair and deep cleans down to the roots.
NYC New York City Color CityProof 24-Hr Shadow - I'm a creature of habit with my makeup and wear the same eyeshadow every day (and have for years), so I was really skeptical about trying this one. I was pleasantly surprised! This eyeshadow is comes in a chubby pencil for easy application and lasted throughout the workday-- it doesn't get stuck in my creases or end up smudging under my eyes throughout the day like other eyeshadows often do.
Bear Naked Granola - I'm already a Bear Naked Granola fan and I eat the Fruit & Nut variety for breakfast pretty much every weekday. They have so many different flavors that I want to try though, so I was excited to receive samples of two new-to-me flavors! While I loved the sweet and salty Sea Salt Caramel Apple granola with its big candy-like chunks or caramel and apples, I wasn't a big fan of the Coconut Almond Curry... the curry flavor was a bit too overpowering for me.
Sally Hansen Airbrush Legs - Airbrush Legs is the perfect lotion to use before a night out! I roadtested it at a wedding recently (the first time I've bared my legs in a while!) and liked the results a lot. It's lightweight and works almost like a BB cream for your legs-- adding a slight tint and covering any imperfections. It makes bare skin look great and comes in 5 shades to work with any skin tone!
Nasoya Pasta Zero Noodles - I have heard so much buzz about these Japanese shirataki noodles and have been dying to try them. What could be better than pasta with 15 calories and only 4 grams of carbs!? Sadly, I just didn't like them... the flavor was fine and pretty mild, but the chewy consistency was something that I just couldn't get behind. I ended up eating the pork stir-fry that I made to go with them and left the noodles... my husband proceeded to eat my leftover noodles though, so I guess he didn't mind the consistency that much!
Australian Gold Lotion Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 30 - Unfortunately, it's been awfully chilly here in Chicago so I haven't had much of an opportunity to test out this sunscreen. It's SPF 30 and full of antioxidants and Vitamin C though, so it will definitely be in my beach bag this summer!
Editor's Note: I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes.
