I received yet another wonderful "Vox Box" from Influesnter and I'm happy to be able to rave and not rave about the items I received! I had thought I'd taken a photo, in fact I'm sure I did, but it has since gotten lost somewhere in digital land. Let's break the items down:
My favorite item was the Hormel Taco Meat. Well, we received a coupon to purchase the meat and that was good enough. I must complain a bit I had to travel to a store that I never go to to get the product and my coupon didn't quite cover the cost of the item so I ended up paying $1.15 for the Shredded Pork, but it was worth it! This meat tasted literally just as if I had made it fresh myself that very moment. The Mexican spices were fabulous and very fresh tasting. It was a breeze to whip up and if I ever make it back to that Smith's (Kroger) again I'll be sure to pick some up. I wish these were a little less pricy because at $6+ tax it seems a bit budget heavy BUT at 7 servings per package and knowing I always have taco makings on hand this would be a great item to store in the freezer for last minute dinner. A+ rating.
My second favorite items were the Suave Professionals Shampoo and Conditioner. I've always used Suave because, let's be honest here, they are inexpensive and smell great! It's a trusted name for me and I've never had a problem with their products. These Coconut scented items were the best. They made my hair SO silky smooth and my whole bathroom smelled of delicious coconut mixture. I'd buy more of these and most likely will. A+ rating.
Third favorite was the Dr. Teals Relaxing Epsom Bath Salts. Wowee. What a strong lavender scent this had but very relaxing and soothing. The directions say to use the whole bag but I only used half thinking the whole bag was a bit much (plus I wanted my husband to have the opportunity to use some too!). I rubbed some salts on my feet before letting it dissolve in my bath water, ahhhh. I have used Dr. Teals before in my bath bomb making and should I make more I'd give these a whirl. Left my skin feeling nice and soft and I was ready for bed afterwards. A rating.
Moving down the line to my lessor liked products we have the Way Better Snacks in Sweet Chili. When I popped these opened and had my first taste I hated them. I immediately tossed them on my pantry shelf and eventually came back, hard up for a snack, a few weeks later and gave them a second chance. They seemed to taste better, or not terrible like I first had thought so I took them to the couch. A few minutes later and the taste seemed to be gone, like the chips weren't privy to the spice sprayer or something. They were bland, maybe because I let them sit for a few weeks but still, the second time I tried the first chip it did have flavor. The chips look funky with their seeds and what not and I just wasn't a big fan. I tried them with salsa in hopes they would be better and they were slightly. At that point it tasted like a sadder version of a tortilla chip. These chip were not my style. D Rating.
Lastly the Yay App. I have to admit I hated this. Yet ANOTHER app to install on my phone and yet another healthy app that is supposed to keep my exercising in high gear.... Uhh... what exercising? Hah. Maybe that's the point? To get me to exercise? It's going to take more than an app, where I have to add friends, to get me to exercise. #SorryNotSorry. Pretty much added the app and pretended to care because I really just didn't. in fact, the name of my group is "the Lazy Ass" group. Does it get anymore to the point than that? If I were to exercise I'd use my RunKeeper or download MyFitnessPal again because I don't need to add people to be able to use the functions. F Rating.
And there you have it folks, my honest opinions regarding all the products I received for free from Influesnter. Thanks again to Influenster for sending the items to me, too!
