Surf's Up VoxBox

Hi there!

How is your weekend? It's turning out to be a pretty awesome weekend over here--Friday night out with my girlfriends, lazy Saturday with my husband (plus, he's making burritos for us for dinner as I type this. YUM!), followed by a Sunday spent with my mom and sister! I am feeling very loved, and it doesn't get much better than this! :)

Last month, the lovely people from Influenster sent me the "Surf's Up VoxBox"! I don't do much any surfing as I live in the middle of a desert, but these products were fun to use sans waves! ;)

Products in Box

CoverGirl Bombshell Curvaceous Mascara in Very Black
Sinful Colors Nail Polish in Song of Summer
Hawaiian Tropic Silk Hydration After Sun Ultra Hydrating Lotion and Soothing Aloe Gel
Jamba Juice All Natural Smoothies (Coupons)
First Aid Shot Therapy Pain Relief

I will not be reviewing the First Aid Shot Therapy because (thankfully!), I've been pain-free since I've received the box and haven't had any reason to try out the product!

CoverGirl Bombshell Curvaceous Mascara

I was very excited to find the Bombshell Curvaceous Mascara because I've been wanting to try it and have thought about purchasing it. I was even more excited when I found that it was in the only mascara shade I wear, Very Black. :)

What makes this tube of mascara so fun is it's double-ended! They make it super easy to use too--one side is labeled with a big 1, and the second side is labeled with 2, so you always know which side to use first!

The first side you use is to volume and curl your lashes. (Notice the curve in the brush). My little lashes definitely need help in that department!

The second side you use is to finish your lashes with the intense black color!

I was very happy with how voluminous and dark my lashes looked all day long, and would definitely buy this BombShell Curvaceous Mascara again! It's very convenient to only have to use one tube of mascara to get the volume, curl, and thickening you want instead of having to use two or three different products.  I will mention that I have only used this mascara a few times, so I don't know how long one tube lasts.

Sinful Colors Nail Polish in Song of Summer

This is definitely a color I have never had in my collection!

This was a fun, summer color to wear on my nails! I was not a huge fan of how it dried on my nails, however. There were air bubbles on some of my nails, and 2 of my nails chipped within my first 24 hours of wearing the polish.

 Hawaiian Tropic Silk Hydration After Sun Ultra Hydrating Lotion and Soothing Aloe Gel

A few days after getting the VoxBox, Michael and I went fishing with his parents up North. I did not think to apply sunscreen on my legs because they never seem to get any color, and wouldn't you know, my legs ended up burning! This Soothing Aloe Gel had shown up on my doorstep just in the nick of time! It did feel very soothing on my legs, and it seemed to help the redness fade more quickly.

Jamba Juice All Natural Smoothies (Coupons)

I will admit I was pretty skeptical to try this product. Michael used to work at Jamba Juice before we got married, so I have had my fair share of smoothies! I didn't think making one at home would even compare to what I could buy from an actual Jamba Juice, but I was presently surprised!

The smoothie packs come in bags of frozen fruit and yogurt chunks. The instructions on the back say to simply add some apple juice, and blend! It sounded easy enough.

I decided to try Caribbean Passion. I didn't have any apple juice, so I blended it with some of Welches Orange Pineapple Apple juice instead. (A healthier alternative to store-bought juice would be freshly squeezing some juice yourself!) After 30 seconds of blending, I had a yummy smoothie!

According to the Nutritional Information on the bag, this qualifies as 2 servings? Ummmm sorry, no. This is one Katie Serving.

I asked Michael to try some because well, he is the Smoothie King. ;) He said he was impressed by how well it had blended and had the same consistency as a smoothie from Jamba Juice. I agreed, and thought the flavor was very yummy!


Overall, I was very happy with the products that I had the pleasure of testing! I would definitely recommend the CoverGirl Bombshell Curvaceous Mascara, Hawaiian Tropic Silk Hydration After Sun Ultra Hydrating Lotion and Soothing Aloe Gel, and Jamba Juice All Natural Smoothies!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend! Thank you for reading! :)
