A box full of goodies #voxbox

Happy Friday friends! Are you loving this fall weather? I sure am! It has been such a picture perfect week here in Illinois. Couldn't ask for better weather! I'm so excited to share with you a few reviews on some products I received from Influenster. I was surprised with the goodies in the mail awhile back and have tried each and every one of these. These opinions are mine.

BelVita Soft Baked Breakfast Biscuit
Let's start with the BelVita Soft Baked Breakfast Biscuit



I was looking forward to this the most in all of the items I received. I'm always looking for nutrious and quick breakfast items for our busy mornings. I popped my biscuit in the microwave for about 10 seconds (this is not mentioned on the package) and it was warm and delicious. I paired it with an apple and a hot cup of Green Tea. Great taste! One thing I do need to warn you about, and this may only be my case, but about a half-hour after eating this I needed to make a trip to the bathroom. I don't think my body can handle that much fiber in one sitting! Here are more details about the product:
  • 20% Daily Value of FIBER, 7g Fat Per Serving
  • 11g delicious WHOLE GRAIN per 50g serving
  • Good source of B-VITAMINS
It does not contain:
  • high fructose corn syrup
  • partial hydrogenated oils
  • artificial flavors or sweeteners

The next product I tried was the Pond's BB+ Cream.

I have to tell you that I was a bit confused at first about what this product actually was. I headed over to their website and this is what I found: Pond's BB+ Cream has an unique pigment system is designed to immediately conceal imperfections for natural-looking coverage. It also:
  • Visibly reduces the appearance of dark spots to even skin tone in two weeks
  • Superior* coverage of imperfections
  • Superior* visible dark spot reduction
  • Superior* non-greasy feel with a matte finish
  • Tone Perfecting Complex formulated with:
    • Vitamin E Acetate – an antioxidant known to protect and repair skin
    • Glycerin – helps increase hydration
  • Brightens and hydrates with lightweight moisture
  • SPF 15 protects against harmful UVA/UVB rays
  • Hypoallergenic and non-comedogenic
  • Reduces the number of beauty and skin care products required during a daily beauty regimen
So, this little bottle not only protects you from the sun, but gives you a great look. It's lightweight and goes on smoothly. I think my make-up applies better and stays longer since I've been using it. Gonna keep this for sure!


Annie's Homegrown Macaroni & Cheese
At lunchtime, I tried the Annie's Homegrown Macaroni & Cheese.
Annie's Homegrown Mac & Cheese

Being completely honest with you, I was not looking forward to trying this. I even brought a back-up lunch just in case I didn't like it. Why? I'm not a fan of microwaved mac & cheese. I've actually never tried anything from Annie's Homegrown, although I've seen their products frequently at Target and Woodman's where I shop.

Can I tell you how surprised I was. This was GOOD. No, GREAT. I would eat this again in a heartbeat and I will buy it for my kids to try. I love the fact that it is all natural, too. Here's a bit more about the product:
  • One of the first microwavable cups with macaroni & cheese made with 100% real cheese and high quality organic and natural ingredients
  • The microwavable cups are made with 100 percent real, rBST-free+ cheese, and without artificial flavors, synthetic colors or preservatives
  • Made with organic pasta and the Real Aged Cheddar flavor has eight grams of whole grains per serving

Dr. Scholl's Comfort fo Her
Finally, I couldn't wait to slip the Dr. Scholl's Comfort for Her insoles in my work heels!

 
Many of you know that I have problem feet. I have had two surgery's on my right foot and a bunion on my left. Not only that, but I have very long and boney feet, too. I slipped these easily into my work heels and they fit comfortably. Slipped my foot in and could feel the difference. I wear these shoes often, so I am looking forward to the days where I am on my feet for long periods of time to see how they feel afterwards. Now you and your friends can get all-day comfort for less – by saving $2 on any Dr. Scholl’s® For Her product today!
Here's more details on these amazing inserts:

  • Uniquely designed for all-day comfort
  • Absorbs shock and impact on heel, and helps protect the sensitive ball of foot area
  • Works great in flats and boots


  • 
    What a fun surprise in the mail and even more fun trying them all out! I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes. Hope you enjoyed reading some of these reviews and perhaps you found a new product or two to try out!

    Have you found any new product you'd like to share with me?
