When you get an email saying you are being sent an Infuenster box, it's like Christmas! You start dreaming of what might be in that box, wondering if it's something you'll fall in love with, or if it's something you'll stick in the back of your junk drawer and forget it's there. I was super excited that my blog buddy, Amanda, received the same box from Revive VoxBox Influenster that I did, and we decided to review our products together.
If you're not familiar with Influenster, they send out complimentary products, for testing and reviewing purposes. Yes, I received free products, but I promise to you, my friends, that I will give you my honest opinion. In fact, I think you'll see Amanda and I don't always have the same opinions on these products.
So, let's get started....
First up, this shampoo and conditioner combo from SheaMoisturize Fruit Fusion Coconut Water Weightless Shampoo & Creme Rinse (goodness, that's a long name). I mentioned this shampoo & conditioner in my Friday Favorites, but it is worth mentioning again! It is advertised as weightless, and I think that is the perfect word to describe it. Between the sun and chlorine, my hair has taken a beating this summer. This shampoo/conditioner duo left my hair feeling clean and soft, without that over conditioned feel. My hair tends to be a little frizzy and I have to straighten it everyday. I noticed when I used SheaMoisture I actually used my straightner a little less, because my hair was so smooth. In fact, I didn't realize how much I liked this combo until I had used up my sample and went back to my other shampoo. SheaMoisture claims to have a humidity blocker, which this Texas girl needs, majorly!
I would definitely consider buying this again! In fact, I plan on buying it after I run out of my Bedhead stuff I'm using now. And, at the affordable price of $10.99 for 13 ounces, it doesn't break the bank. Plus, it is widely available at stores like Target, WalMart, CVS and other major drug stores.
Up next, SnackWell's Biscuit Thins. These come in three flavors, French Vanilla Latte, Caramel Macchiato, and Dark Chocolate Mocha. I received Dark Chocolate Mocha. If you know me personally, or have been reading my blog for a while you know a few things about me...#1) I watch my carbs, #2) I don't eat sugar, but I took one for the team and split this little package with my husband as a late night snack.
If you don't really care too much about carbs, and you watch your fat, you'll be interested to know that there are just 8 grams of fat in four cookies. But, if you watch your carbs and sugar like me, you won't be too thrilled that these little babies contain 26 grams of carbs (3 grams of dietary fiber) and 8 grams of sugar. It is also worth mentioning that they have 6 grams of fiber, are made with whole grains, and are free from high fructose corn syrup and hydrogenated oil.
Hmmm...would I buy it again? To be honest, I actually liked the taste. They are light and not too sweet with little bits of coffee baked into it. Judging by taste, I would absolutely buy it again, BUT in a perfect world I would be thrilled it these babies were significantly lower in the carb department.
I absolutely enjoyed reviewing these two products. Please, please go over and see what Amanda has to say about the same products. You might just be surprised...
Also, check back next Thursday to see what else was in that cute, yellow box! Sneak peak below!
Have a great day!
