Contained in my VoxBox was:
- No7 Protect & Perfect Advanced
- NYC Expert Last Lip Color in Sugar Plum
- Celestial Seasonings Candy Cane Lane Decaf Green Tea
- EcoTools Hair Brush
- Rimmel Gentle Eye Makeup Remover
- Rimmel Scandaleyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal Eyeliner
- McCormick Gourmet Thyme (hehe, they sent me Time in a Bottle)
- Fruit Vines Bites
I was most excited to see the Rimmel products, as I am already a huge fan of their makeup line! It is affordable, but offers a great selection of quality products! I was also in need of a new waterproof black eyeliner pencil, so the timing couldn't have been better. The eyeliner of course did not disappoint! I will post a separate, more in depth review of the Rimmel Products in my next post!
The NYC Lip Color was a surprise like as I was worried it would be too dark for me. I am not much of a lipstick wearer because it is a pain, and I can never pick a color that suites me. When I put on the Sugar Plum color, I was surprised how it looked on me, it was a few shades darker than my natural lip color but not so dark it looked silly. I was also very pleasantly surprised how creamy and smooth it felt. Normally I don't like the texture and "taste" of lipstick but this was was actually quite nice. It didn't last as long as I hoped, but a quick touch up would have brought it right back. For the price ($1.99) it is totally worth the purchase in my opinion, even if you have to touch up once every few hours. I would definitely buy this product again.
The biggest hit for me was the Ecotools hair brush. I am picky about hair brushes as I get a lot of tangles and knots with my way-too-fine hair. I was skeptical about this brush, which is the Sleek and Shine Finisher model, but I love it! It is my new go-to brush for everyday use! It doesn't necessarily detangle but it does an awesome job of making my hair not look greasy and "clumpy" like the brush I was using. Ecotools claims it speeds up the hair drying process, but as the only hair dryer I own is in my craft room and I have never used on my hair, I can't verify the claim!
While strawberry is one of my least favorite flavors, I did like the Fruit Vines and plan on purchasing the cherry flavor in the future. The texture was just right, not too sticky, not too hard. I ended up eating a lot more in one sitting than I had planned lol, especially as I dislike strawberry.
I have yet to try the No7 serum as it is a tiny pack so it will be nearly impossible to talk about how well the product works. I could say how it initially feels, but one or two applications isn't going to lead me to give a good opinion.
As for the tea, I really don't like peppermint flavored anything other than the little starlight candies, and even those need to be mild, so I did not try the tea. I know Celestial Seasonings is often regarded as an excellent choice and they have a huge variety of flavors, so I'm certain this Candy Cane Lane tea would be very good if you like flavored teas. I just don't.
The same goes for the McCormick Thyme. I know McCormick makes a high quality product that is worth the extra money, I just don't cook with seasonings very often, and even less often needing Thyme. Had it been garlic salt/powder, that would have been tried and tried. I don't have a sensitive palate, so the cheap-depot spices are for me as it is insanely rare I use them. I would like to try the McCormick Cilantro though as I love to make my knock-off Chipotle cilantro-lime rice!
Overall I enjoyed the products in my Frosty VoxBox! I suggest you go out and try them!
