I can't even tell you guys how excited I was to be chosen for the Naturals Vox Box.This is my first Vox Box from Influenster. Basically what the site does is provide the products in theme based kits free of charge in exchange for you honest reviews of the products. Find out all about them from http://www.influenster.com/.
My specific box contained:
The Original Dish Drying Mat
CleanWell Hand Sanitizer Wipe
Desert Essence Coconut Shine & Refine Lotion
First up we have The Geodeo Natural Deodorant Plus Detox Complex:
Reach a new level of purity, keeping you fresh for 24-hour odor protection. GEODEO Natural Deodorant Plus Detox Complex is a naturally-devirved, breakthtough eco-technology, specially formulated to be safe for your body and your world.
Product can be purchased at drugstore.com for 5.99.
The product is made from bamboo and aloe extracts , Vitamin E, Volcanic minerals, Icelandic algae, & Enzymes.
Ok so this deodorant smells awesome! I do love it goes on clear and stays clear so it does not get on your clothing. It worked ok for a day I was just lounging at home but even then I would not say it is a 24 hour product. I tried it one day applying it before my workout and it did nothing to help the sweat or odor. I also applied it after the workout but it did not help. It is also a little tough to apply. I mean you use it like a normal deodorant but you have to make many swipes in order to transfer it from the product to your body.
PROS: Smell, Goes on clear and stays that way
CONS: Not good for exercise
Final Verdict: Not for someone with an active lifestyle.
Next up we have The Original Dish Drying Mat:
Vox Box ad:
The Original Dish Drying Mat is a unique, laminated design that combines a thin layer of foam between two layers of high quality, super absorbent microfiber for a new dish washing experience that conserves energy and paper towels by air drying, and saves water by hand-washing.
The small size retail for 4.99 and the extra large $7.99. They can be purchased Bed Bath & Beyond
The first thing I tried in the box was this dish drying mat. For one thing is looks waaaay better on the counter than a towel. It dries super fast. It can ever be washed! It was a little small for me but you can buy a larger size.
PROS: Dries super fast. Looks Nice.
CONS: Size. Though the larger one is better.
Final Verdict: I use it everyday and even bought the larger size!
Desert Essence Coconut Shine & Refine Lotion:
Vox Box ad:

This product can be purchased from the company's website desertessence.com for 9.99.
Taken from the site...• Infuses hair with moisture and restores healthy shine
• Strengthens hair
• Helps smooth damaged hair and reduce frizz without weighing hair down
NEW! Bring out hair’s natural beauty and texture as your nourish it. Avena Strigosa Seed Extract (black oat), blended with Coconut Oil and Extract, moisturizes and helps repair damaged hair. Yucca Cactus and Aloe add volume and shine. Oleic acid-rich safflower oil and Panthenol quickly penetrate and smooth, without weighing hair down.
This is perfect for those dreaded flyaways. I love to wear my hair straight and they always keep my look from being as polished as I like. The Lotion smelled fab and didnt feel heavy of greasy. I use the lotion on my hair when it is wet. Added bonus is that is gave my hair a bit of shine. Only drawback was by the end of the day the product had dried out and turned a bit white. Not all over but still.
PROS: Smells great, Smooths Flyaways all day, Non Greasy
CONS: Product dried and was visible at the end of the day
Final Verdict: Product does what it says it will. However due to the only con of the product I do not know if I will buy it again.
This product makes me feel great all day long. Packed with vitamins I feel refreshed and fab. There are many great flavors to choose from too!
Final Verdict: Use it in the morning for a vitamin boost that lasts all day
NECTRESSE™ Natural No Calorie Sweetener is what you’ve been searching for—100% natural, zero calories per serving and the rich, sweet taste of sugar!
Ok so I am not much for Sugar substitutes. The product was fine for what it was but I just dont like them.
Final Verdict: Just not for me
Clean Well Hand Sanitizer wipes:
CleanWell believes in eliminating germs safely. That's why they developed their patented formulation of natural thyme oil that kills germs yet contains no harsh chemicals. CleanWell truly is a better way to clean.
Ok so I hadnt tried many Han Sanitizer wipes other than the ones from restaurants that leave your hands feeling sticky & Dry. Unlike those wipes these had a pleasant scent and where not sticky at all. Perfect for a picnic out or the lunchbox at school.
Final Verdict: Great product!
