I’m so excited I got my Influenster Naturals VoxBox! I received these products complimentary for testing purposes from Influenster. I love trying natural products and I’m always looking to replace them in my daily life! I’m most excited about the DEOGEO Deodorant and Parissa Wax strips, my current deodorant and hair removal methods are definitely not natural so I hope I like these. Keep reading for more information about these products!
The Original Dish Drying Mat:
This is a super absorbent microfiber dish drying mat! I thought this was pretty random to receive but I know my roommates will appreciate it. We just use a towel right now so this will be MUCH better!
CleanWell Individual Hand Sanitizer Wipes:
This is an all-natural, alcohol free sanitizing wipe. The active ingredient is Thymus Vulgaris Oil which is a sanitizer. I have used this yet but it says it has a citrus herb scent and is moisturizing. I would definitely prefer these over the usual alcohol wipes!
LypSyl Intense Protection LypMoisturizer:
This lip balm is made with pure Swedish beeswax, coconut oil (moisturizes), organic Shea butter (heals and protects), vitamin A and E (softens and heals). However these aren’t the first ingredients listed on the packaging: mineral oil, petrolatum, paraffin are. SOME people say you should avoid these ingredients and others say it is fine to use. All I know is this lip balm feels really nice! It is long lasting and very moisturizing. Also has a subtle minty flavor, overall I really like this product!
EBOOST Natural Energy:
EBOOST is a proprietary formula of vitamins, minerals and super-nutrients that deliver a boost of energy and immunity. Contains NO sugar or artificial flavors and only 5 calories! All-natural orange flavor, ingredients include Green tea leaf extract (caffeine) and 5-HTP.
I got one of these in my Birchbox a couple months ago and I really liked it. Definitely better than drinking coffee and gives you a boost of immunity too. I didn’t realize it contains 5-HTP and now that I know that I think I might get more of these because I could use more 5-HTP!
This deodorant is 97% natural, helps fight daily buildup of impurities and provides 24 hour protection. I really excited I got this because I’ve been meaning to try a natural deodorant and so far I LOVE this! I didn’t know how bad most deodorants you will find at the drugstore are, here more information from GEODEO…
“GEODEO keeps you free from harmful chemicals and actually helps to remove impurities. Contains a blend of six natural ingredients: volcanic minerals, bamboo, Icelandic algae, aloe, enzymes and vitamin E. The cage-like honeycomb structure of the volcanic minerals capture small molecules, helping to reduce odors and remove unwanted compounds. Natural enzymes go to work on neutralizing odors. Icelandic algae hydrates skin, calms inflammation and helps restore even, smooth pigmentation. Bamboo helps brighten and strengthen skin to better withstand attacks of the shaver. Aloe helps heal any knicks.
Antiperspirant is a drug regulated by the FDA. Most deodorants contain aluminum chlorohydrate/aluminum zirconium. Processed aluminum is so small the molecule can pass through the skin, enter the cell wall and block sweat glands to prevent sweating. It is also small enough to enter the blood stream. How long does it hang out? Unlike illicit drugs such as cocaine, ecstasy and opium which are undetected in the blood stream after 1 day, aluminum takes up to 15 days after just one application to the armpit. Aluminum is a neurotoxin shown to increase the risk of Alzheimer’s disease by 60%.”
WOW! I can’t believe that, I definitely learned something new...I so glad I got this, now I will never buy a deodorant that contains aluminum again.
Parissa Wax Strips Face and Body:
This natural hair removal system contains the wax strips are made of pine resin, castor oil and beeswax. Also comes with a vial of Azulene Oil to soothe and soften skin and prevent ingrown hair. These are mess-free, fast and easy to use, just press and zip off! I haven’t tried these yet but I’m excited to use them for my upper lip, I hope they work well!
This sweetener is all natural, made from 100% natural monk fruit extract and zero calories! Funny because I got the Truvia natural sweetener in my last VoxBox. I haven’t tasted this one yet to see which one I like better, but I will probably tweet about it!
That’s it!!! Have you tried any of these products? I’ll be tweeting about them once I try them out, but I probably do a full review of the wax strips here. Thanks for reading!
