TLC VoxBox Detailed Review

I received my TLCVoxBox a few weeks ago????? and I have tried out all of my goodies and wanted to let you know how everything worked.

Just to refresh your memory (and mine) here is what I got in my TLCVoxBox

First off, we tried out the Neo-to-Go spray for cuts and scrapes. It also has "no sting" it in. It worked very well. We didn't have a boo boo to spray it on for a few days but it didn't take long for my son to fall on some rocks at school and get a few nicks. Here is our little post we put on Instagram about it

Next, we broke out that bar of Ivory soap! I debated on what I wanted to do with it. There are a bunch of fun things you can do with this little guy from making your own laundry detergent to homemade shampoos to just using it as a plain ole soap! But I went with the Pinterest craze of blowing it up into soap clouds in the microwave. I was sure that would blow my little 7 year old's mind. And it did! And it was fun! I'm glad I chose that one so he could get in on the action. Here's what we did:

Unwrap it and put it in the micro on a sheet of wax paper

Zap it for about 1 minute. It will be warm/hot to the touch so be careful with little hands! Here's what it does!

My little guy wanted to keep on cooking it so I let him. It won't hurt a thing! Then, he didn't want the fun to end and I didn't want it to either. We used it in the sink for just some water play.

It pretty much dissolves back into soap. I quickly grabbed the silicone mold that I had and thought we might be able to make bath crayons. We took wads of little soap clusters and added food coloring.

At this point I had no idea if this was going to work but I really had nothing to lose. It was entertaining him and it was good clean fun. HA! Did you see what I did there. Oh Lordy. 

He packed the colored soap into the molds. We let the mold set for about two days.

They worked! I didn't get a photo of him drawing in the bathtub cuz we have a beige bathtub (I know - need a bathroom remodel) so it didn't pick up the colors too well. Needless to say my son loved it. Win Win. He had fun, he got clean. Thanks Ivory!

Now mom's turn. I tried out Avon Anew Reversalist Wrinkle Smoother next. I liked it! It isn't heavy like it feels like it would be.

It is translucent so there won't be a tint that is added to your skin

I started by rubbing it in. Then read the directions. It said don't rub it in. Whoops! Ha. You're suppose to dab it on your wrinkles. Ahhhh... I did that and it worked well. I tried taking a before and after but it was just hard to translate to the camera. The one on the left is nothing on. The one on the right is with the Avon Anew Reversalist.

You can see a little bit of difference. I noticed it more in person. It worked better on my forehead than it did in my laugh lines. But my laugh lines are pretty deep. It would take some concrete mix to make a difference there!

SO! What's next? Puffs Plus to Go of course! I love these little to go Puffs. They fit so nicely in the car, in my pocketbook, by your bed on the nightstand, anywhere! You could really have about 10 of them and be set. 

Here's what I did with mine!

and a little bit of this too

One of the other things I got in the TLCVoxbox was a coupon for Breyers new Gelato flavors. Yum! I rushed right out and checked out what my local store had. Unfortunately, they only had 3 flavors. They had the Vanilla Caramel, Tiramisu and the Raspberry Cheesecake. They were missing the Triple Chocolate. That's ok. I chocolate myself out on everything else so I went with the Raspberry Cheesecake this time.

It really is delicious. I like the graham crackers on top. It's easier to dig into than ice cream. It won't bend your spoon!

The Shell gas rewards card is the only thing I haven't used yet. I generally go to Ingles for gas. They have the best prices in my part of town.

There you have it! Another fun VoxBox from Influenster. Let me know if you would like an invite! I can send you an email and you can get started yourself! I love getting freebies and trying out new things I wouldn't otherwise buy because I don't know how they work/taste. I love Influenster and will keep hoping I get another one!
