I was pleasantly surprised my my December Influenster Vox Box. What’s a Vox Box? What changed my mind on St. Ives?
If you aren’t familiar with Influenster, it’s time to get to know them. You can sign up easily on their site and then from time to time you will be sent surveys and occasionally chosen to review products in what’s called a Vox Box.
Ives Holiday Campaign
In my December Vox Box I received a St. Ives set of body care products:
- Refresh & Revive Pear Nectar & Soy Body Lotion
- Even & Bright Pink Lemon and Mandarin Orange Body Wash
- Nourished & Smooth Oatmeal Scrub + Mash
Refresh & Revive Pear Nectar & Soy Body Lotion
This was the first thing I used in my VoxBox and I love love love the smell! I like to have a full size lotion at home and sometimes just buy something cheap. I forgot how much I love having a great scented moisturizing lotion. I have pretty dry skin so something like this is perfect. I’ll definitely be buying this.
Even & Bright Pink Lemon and Mandarin Orange Body Wash
If I were to see this in the store, I probably would not have read what the actual scent was or jumbled it and though it was mango. I know, it doesn’t say mango anywhere. I need to pay more attention when shopping.
Needless to say, I was very wrong. “Even & Bright” is a great description for this product because the smell is so… bright. It’s a very clean smell that you can really tell is a mix of the lemon and orange. This body wash also makes you feel super clean too, perhaps it’s a mix of it being a great product mixed with the scent.
If you are a morning shower person, then this will definitely help you get up in the morning too.
Nourished & Smooth Oatmeal Scrub + Mash
When it comes to washing my face, I typically just use a moisturizing face wash. I was pretty excited to try something new. The oatmeal scrub is a nice exfoliator that didn’t overly do it, which is great for me because typically exfoliators dry out my skin. This scrub was just enough and very gentle on my skin. I plan on using it weekly or bi-weekly throughout the winter.
Overall, I don’t think I will be skipping over St. Ives anymore when I need body wash, lotion, etc. I’m not sure why I haven’t made them a go-to in the past. I really love Dove products so perhaps it was just an unconscious decision not to switch. Needless to say, I won’t be skipping over them in the future. Also, you can get all three of these items for $15 or less.
