Rose Voxbox.. review!

 I received these products complimentary for testing purposes from Influenster.

Tuesday I showed you the Kiss Gradation Polishes I received from Influenster, along with a full review of those. Today I'm going to review the remaining items from my box.

First up, Rimmel London Scandaleyes Retro Glam Mascara: "The 60s are back in full swing with a thicker, fuller, wide-eyed look! Rimmel London Scandaleyes Retro Glam Mascara brings you a bold, wide-eyed look, fanned out volume, an no clumps for lashes that are up, out, and over the top!"

Retail value: $5.99
First of all, sorry Rimmel, but yes there were a ton of clumps every time I used this. To be honest I don't use make up often so I kind of put this up and forgot about it until recently but I have used it a couple of times. I did love how awesome my lashes looked. The first time I used this, my boyfriend commented that mascara really does the trick for me. That's something I never considered, but this mascara did some to be more volumizing than other mascaras I've used. Aside from the clumps, I was pretty happy with it.

Lindt Lindor Milk Chocolate Truffles : "Smooth, Melting, Luscious. When you break the shell of a Lindor truffle, the irresistible smooth filling starts to melt and so will you. Available in 10 smooth, melting flavors." 

Retail value: $3.99 for a 5.1 oz bag

I'm not really a chocolate person, so for me these were OK. I found just 1 was good enough and I really didn't want any more. I did like the smooth texture, and it had a nice flavor. Solid chocolate is my least favorite kind of chocolate though, so I don't think I would buy this. For that price tag, I would rather pick up something I like better, something with nuts, with a better value for the buck.

 belVita crunchy Breakfast Biscuits: "belVita crunchy Breakfast Biscuits are made with delicious ingredients and carefully baked to release steady energy the lasts all morning. They're a good source of fiber and B-vitamins, contain no high fructose corn syrup, have 18-20 grams of whole grain per serving and taste great - perfect for on-the-go."

Retail value: $3.69 for a box of 5 packets of 4 biscuits.

Sorry, but once again I'm probably not going to buy these ever. I was surprised because I did really like the flavor, and the smell was absolutely wonderful. It reminded me of bakery made blueberry muffins, which just smelled fantastic. I liked these a lot more than I thought I would. This type of thing just isn't something I would normally purchase, so I probably won't.

 Vitabath Hydrating Lotion : "Moisturize your skin with lotion formulated with Aloe Vera, Safflower and Olive Oils for silky soft skin. This hydrating lotion enriches skin with luxurious moisture and a delicate scent. Free from propylene glycol, phthalates, mineral oil, and synthetic color."

Retail value: $7.99

I received the Green Tea and Sage scent, and oh my gosh it smells so awful. I am not a fan of green tea scents at all. Despite this, and despite the fact that I almost always forget to use lotion, I've used about 1 third of my bottle over the past month. I found it difficult to rub all of it into my skin, it just seemed to leave a residue no matter how much I rubbed. I can't really say whether or not I've noticed a difference in my skin.. just because our weather is becoming more harsh so no matter what I do, my skin is going to be pretty dry. I do think this has helped though. This isn't really something I would buy for myself, it's more of something I might consider giving to a friend as a gift.

Last but not least is my Dr. Scholl's For Her Cozy Cushions: "Dr. Scholl's For Her Cozy Cushions help keep feet warm and dry while providing all-day comfort. Their mult-layer design helps insulate the foot while two plush layers provide extra cushioning. Cozy Cushions help keep feet dry by absorbing perspiration and offer superior support on hard surfaces."

Retail price: $12.49

I love Dr. Scholl's products, so I was excited about getting this. I didn't want to ruin them by putting them in my sneakers which contained sand, so I put them in my Winter boots. For that reason, I haven't done nearly as much walking to really test these out but enough to know that they've held up better than expected. They are comfortable, so they do the job. I wear a size 9 or 10, so for once I was happy that I didn't have to trim these to match my insole size like you quite often have to with other insoles. I do really like the soft material that's used for these insoles, so I'm glad to say that so far it's held up pretty well. For Dr. Scholl's, I would probably ignore the price tag and buy these again anyway because I do feel they're well worth the price.
