Surfs Up VoxBox Review

Surfs Up! Time for another Influenster VoxBox filled with awesome stuff for us to review.

Here's what's inside:

Jamba Juice Smoothie Kit

Hawaiian Tropic Silk Hydration After Sun

First Aid Shot Therapy

SinfulColors Professional Nail Polish

COVERGIRL Bombshell Curvaceous by LashBlast Mascara
First up is the Jamba Juice Smoothie Kit. We had to make a special trip to another grocery store to pick these up. There are tons of options to pick from and with all the yummy choices it did take us awhile to agree on just one. We settled on Caribbean Passion with mangoes, strawberries, peaches and non-fat yorgut. The packs are pretty small, just enough to make two 8 oz glasses. You dump the contents in the blender with the recommended or your juice choice and mix. I was a pretty disappointed by the fruit content as the sum total of cut up strawberries would have made one strawberry. Not enough to add any flavor to the mix at all. In fact the only thing you could really taste when blended was the mango. Good fruit and flavor just not a good mix of either.

Next up is Hawaiian Tropic Silk Hydration After Sun. This product combines lotion and aloe gel for a ribbon layered look. The scent is a nice sweet smell. Not overly scented but enough to enjoy. As far as moisturizing it seems to feel good at first but the moisture doesn't stay. On dry or sunburned skin it relieves the itching but the dryness lingers. I would use this more for the scent I think than the moisturizing.
Now on to First Aid shot Therapy. We had to wait for the opportune time to try this out. So one day after hiking and getting a bit too much sun and not enough water I had a seriously bad headache. Perfect testing time for this. A good shake and then bottoms up. I had to drink it in little sips. The taste is a little strange but not unpleasant. I did begin to feel some relief from my headache fairly fast but my stomach did not appreciate the shot at all. I had to sit still and close my eyes for about 10 minutes to keep from revisiting the shot for a second time on the trip out. So all in all I'm not sure that the time I had to wait for my stomach to settle justifies the benefit of quick pain relief.

Almost at the end is SinfulColors Professional Nail polish. We were sent the Aqua color. The polish is kind of thin so two coats are required. The finish has a metalic look to it and the color is awesome. There's some blue and green in different lights, it looks great! Deffinetly a color I would have picked for myself. Just wish it hadn't leaked a bit in the box when it came so I had more of it to use!
Finally we have COVERGIRL Bombshell Curvaceous by LashBlast Mascara. This mascara is a great two wand, two formula product. The step one side separates and adds a little curve to the lashes and the second coats each lash for a dark accentuated lash. The end result is a nice full clean lash look. Very nice dual product. I like to use just step one on lower lashes for an accented but lighter lash.  

I received all products complimentary from Influenster.
