Unilever Dry Spray VoxBox [Product Review]

I have never been fond of spray antiperspirants. I was given a 3 ounce bottle of Degree Motion Sense antiperspirants Fresh Energy Dry Spray to test in exchange for my opinion after using this product. After using this product I still do not like spray antiperspirants. There  is still a cloud of spray that floats around and made me cough. The dry spray is still cold in my armpits, but does have a dryness to it when applied. The Fresh Energy scent smells really good.

If you don’t spray this too close to your armpits it’s not cold, however, I tried it once and yes it’s cold. Hold it about 5-6 inches away and it’s nowhere near that shocking temperature. I never know how much to spray for enough odor protection, maybe it’s  because I’m so used to stick deodorants.

What I DID NOT like about Degree Motion Sense Antiperspirant Spray:

  • The cloud of product that appears when product is being used. (Made me cough).
  • Degree Dry Spray claims to last up to 48 hours. Not for me, I felt like I needed to spray more half through my day.
  • Price at $6 something a bottle. I don’t buy spray deodorants so I’m not sure if this is a good value or not. I’m used to spending no more than $4 for the sticks.

What I DID like about Degree Motion Sense Antiperspirant Spray:

  • I liked the open/close button at the top of the bottle. Slide it forward to use the spray and slide it down to lock the spray. I think that would be great for having it loose in a gym bag or in a travel bag.
  • The Fresh Energy scent was wonderful. Fresh, Clean and reminded me of spring flowers. When used properly the Fresh Energy scent lingers for a while. You will notice it when you move around a lot. There area where it was sprayed will still have the scent there. It is a strong scent, which I do not mind at all.
  • There is no residue left on my clothes. No stains in the armpits either, which I have noticed when using stick deodorants.

[DISCLAIMER: I received the Unilever Dry Spray VoxBox from Influenster to review complimentary in exchange for my honest opinion of the product.]

My VivaVoxBox

I received my second Vox Box from Influenster.com. Below are the products I found inside the box.

I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes.

I tried the Vaseline Spray & Go Moisturizer first. It’s a spray body lotion.

  • Be careful when spraying it. Be aware of your your background because you’ll get lotion places you don’t want the lotion to be. (Suggestion: apply in the bathroom after a shower. Be careful not to get lotion on the floor because floor will get slippery)
  • Has a cocoa butter scent, reminds me of summer and the beach, sun tan lotion.
  • Is still somewhat stinky when dressing immediately after applying.
  • Skin is very smooth & soft. There is no greasy film afterwards. Just a slight stinky sensation to clothing. But to touch the skin after applying there is no slick, sticky or greasy feeling.

You can pick up this product for around $8. I would definitely use it during the summer. I would take it poolside,  applying some lotion to prevent dry skin after being exposed to pool chemicals and sunshine.

Vaseline Brand Spray And Go

Vaseline Brand Moisturizer Spray And Go

I received two bottles of Pure Ice nail polish.  One color is called “After Hours #274CP” It’s a pink-rose shade. Not necessarily a color I would have picked for myself. However, it does grow on me. I really liked that it doesn’t chip as easily as I expected it to. I am very hard on my nails (nail-biting habit). I did need about three coats. The second color is “It’s Complicated 1001” this nail polish is clear with multi-colored hexagon shaped confetti mixed in it. I would not wear this type of nail polish. The confetti pieces slide when you apply it. Sometimes you get a bunch of it in one area, you must paint over it to spread it over the nail.

 

There were the new Cetaphil Cleansing Cloths in the Viva Vox Box. Very similar to baby wipes, thicker than most brands. There are 25 towelettes in the package. This product is a bit pricey for only 25 towelettes. You can buy it for around $6. However average price for this type of product. The quality is towelette is much thicker than the cheaper brands. I like the hard plastic cover because it stays closed, better than the cheaper brands with just the sticky reseal cover. The towelettes will remain moist in this package. I did use one to remove my makeup after work. The towelette did remove most of the makeup. However, the towelette start to become what seemed to be fuzzy and stretched out looking. There isn’t a strong aroma of perfume or fragrance, slight hint of what smells like baby powder. I would recommend this as something to carry in an overnight bag or even in your purse. The cleansing cloths serve their purpose when you may need to freshen up during a hot summer.

I found some lip color. I love any product for my lips. New York Color Proof Twistable Lip Color. A shade called “South Ferry Berry #040” It’s a bright red shade. I love the way it smells, reminds me of a berry scent. What I don’t like is that it is a bit waxy, having a similar feel to a cheap lip balm. It’s a matte, so the color is not shiny, which I do like for a change. This product doesn’t last as long for me as some others because I do tend to lick my lips a lot and rub my lips together. This product will smear and stain your skin for a bit if you’re not paying attention. Like lipstick it will get on your teeth. It’s a twistable tube,  like a big crayon. Costs around $3 for any one of the 12 colors that are available.

The Montagne Jeunesse Manuka Honey Peel-off mask was really good. I had used similar products in the past. However none are as thick as this product. The Manuka Honey Peel-off mask was very thick. I did have difficulty when I tried openly the pouch. There is a designated tore off spot. However when I did tear it off it wasn’t enough to squeeze out the product. I had to get scissors to finish opening the hole. I noticed that there was a lot of product inside. I applied it to my face, sat around for it to dry about 20 minutes. It is the neatest feeling to pull (peel) it off. Then to look at it, seeing the skin lines, dry skin. There was a tight feeling to my face afterwards, a bit dry. Only thing I didn’t like is that it was a one time use. There are so many other skin care products to choose from, covering all parts of the body. It seems that most products come in pouches. Which I don’t like those, but one can always cut it open to get every last drop of the product.

I did a separate post for the Shell Fuel Rewards card. You can read that one here.

No Bread [365DPC]

Since that “Polar Vortex” hit the Midwest. I can see how it has affected the area. For the third day in a row there is still no bread at Walmart. Today I noticed that there were no pre-cut lettuce bags. I couldn’t find the lettuce either. Still only a few bags of potatoes. I also noticed that some selections of frozen foods are slim pickings too. I don’t think I’ve seen Walmart empty like this for too long of a time period ever.
