Influenster Cheers to You VoxBox

Provided for Review by Influenster

Happy Saturday, dear readers! I hope you're having a wonderful weekend so far! It's been a busy one around here, and I am finally able to sneak away to get this post written for you. I am a member of the Influenster community, and I am occasionally emailed questionnaires to determine whether or not I am eligible for specific VoxBoxes. If you are not familiar with the VoxBox, let me fill you in! Each box has a specific theme, and they contain products that Influenster chooses to fit the theme. Recipients receive the box of products in exchange for spreading the word about the products and giving an honest review. The VoxBox program has introduced me to several new products, and I encourage you to check it out on Influenster if you use social media regularly. For this post, I am sharing the Cheers to You VoxBox I was selected to review. Let's do this!
We're definitely starting off on the right foot! Thanks for making my day!
The Cheers to You VoxBox came with an assortment of goodies to make you feel beautiful from the inside out.
Suave Professionals Coconut Milk Infusion Shampoo and Conditioner
Suave Professionals salon-inspired range of hair care products work as well as premium salon brands so that women can live beautifully every day.

I was sent the Coconut Milk Infusion line which is supposed to help moisturize dry hair. My hair is actually on the normal to oily side, and I wash it every 2-3 days. I was on day 3 when I tested these products, and I was surprised at how dry my hair felt when I rinsed the shampoo from my hair. For a line that is designed to moisturize hair, the shampoo really strips away the natural oils a little too well. I then applied the conditioner and let it sit for 3 minutes as suggested on the bottle. My hair certainly felt much better after this treatment! That being said, my hair always feels nicely moisturized after a conditioner soak of any kind. I'm not really convinced this duo really helps more than other brands of shampoo and conditioners, but it works and is affordable. It also smells like coconut due to added fragrance. I love the smell of coconut so that was a plus for me!

MSRP $2.99 - 3.99

Dr. Teal's Pure Epson Salt Soaking Solution
Take good care of your body and mind by regularly soaking in Dr. Teal's Pure Epsom Salt Soaking Solution. Dr. Teal's Soothe & Sleep with Lavender is made of wholesome ingredients: Epsom salts and herbal oils to naturally relieve sore muscles, ease your aches and pains & relax your whole body for a deeper sleep.

I am always holding my 19 pound infant, and my 37 pound toddler often likes to be picked up. Needless to say, I have sore muscles on a regular basis! Add to that the limited sleep, this is the perfect product for me! I've had to lock myself in the bathroom so I could have a good soak in peace while being serenaded with the most unusual pounding and wailing noises on the bathroom door. The soak definitely helped to soothe my aching muscles, and the scent of lavender helped to relax my mind so I could easily go to sleep. While lavender isn't my favorite scent, I don't mind it on occasion, and I didn't find it to be too overpowering. Now if Dr. Teal's can make this in a coconut or Pina Colada scent so I can imagine I'm on some tropical getaway, I'd be buying it in bulk!

MSRP $5.97 (3 lb bag) / $2.50 (1 lb bag) 

Coupon for a package of HORMEL Taco Meat
Can taco night actually get easier and yummier? YES! Introducing 100% natural, fully cooked fresh Taco Meats from Hormel. Perfectly seasoned Chicken, Pork and Beef that go from the fridge to taco in just minutes. So all you have to focus on is the fun...and your favorite toppings!

When I first saw this coupon, I thought is was for a seasoning pack, not a package of meat. Oops! I blame mama brain! We're big fans of Mexican and Tex Mex foods in the Jedi household, but surprisingly, we've not yet tried this yet! I'm now sure how that has happened since we normally eat it every week; perhaps this next week is the week for us! I'm afraid I can't give any specific feedback on this yet, but let me know if you want to hear more when I do try one of these!

MSRP $5 - 6 (varies from chicken/pork/ground beef to shredded beef)

Way Better Snacks
Sweet Chili Corn Tortilla Chips
Way Better Snacks Sweet Chili tortilla chips are made with love and just enough spice. Our craveably tasty chips are made with sprouted flax seeds, chia seeds and quinoa so you can feel even better about all that deliciousness.

I love to snack! I'm not a potato chip fan overall, but I do enjoy tortilla chips. I've not tried this brand or variety before, and I was very happy with my first experience. Thankfully I was in the house by myself when I snapped this photo because I got to eat some of these! They do have a touch of spice to them, so if you are very sensitive to spicy foods, you may want to avoid these. I liked the level of spiciness, and I'm pretty sure my toddler did too considering he devoured the rest of them when he came inside. These were a win for us, and I'll be adding these to my grocery list!

MSRP $3.59

What do you think of the products from the Cheers to You VoxBox? Are there any you're wanting to try? I'd love to hear your thoughts!

Until next time, have a great weekend!
XO!

    1. I've only used salts sporadically, but this convinced me to use them more often!

  5. I love when I get chosen for a VoxBox! Admittedly I am a hair snob and wouldn't use those Suave products. The sulfates in it surely are part of what was drying about it. Fun post though!

    1. Good to know that's likely what make the shampoo so drying! Thank you!

  6. I would definitely be using any of these products except the Epsom salts as I'm not patient enough to soak, lol. I think my mom just mailed me a bottle of that conditioner for some reason, so I guess I will be trying it out, too.

  7. I love the Dr.Teals Epsom Salts. I've used them a lot in the past.

  8. I'm jealous! I never qualify for any of the boxes that have food items because we have multiple food allergies at my house. I looooove Dr. Teals, one of my favorite brands.

    1. Awww! Thankfully we've been lucky on that front, although I do have to hide any food items so I can try them, lol!
