Product Review: Surfs Up Vox Box

As a member of Influenster I was recently able to review their Surfs Up Vox Box. 

Included in this box:

First Aid Shot Therapy

Hawaiian Tropic Silk Hydration After Sun - Coconut Papaya

Today was the first afternoon this summer I was able to spend at the pool. Even though I slathered on the sun screen, I had a few spots I missed that got crispy and burnt. As soon as I got home and showered I put on some of this after sun gel/lotion and it instantly cooled the burn. I'm not a fan of aloe because it's too sticky. With this being half gel/half lotion it isn't sticky and I don't have to wait 5 minutes for it to dry. Unfortunately, I'm not a fan of coconut so I would never purchase this for myself - but it definitely gets the job done. 

Sinful Nail Polish - Aqua 

I have a ton of Sinful colors in my collection so this brand was one I am extremely familiar with. The price point is awesome at $1.99 and with two coats it's a great vibrant shade and gets the job done. It was the perfect shade of blue to wear for the 4th of July. It has a metallic sheen and reminds me of a mermaid blue. I love it!  

Covergirl Bombshell Curvaceous 

First off, how awesome is it that they sent a full size mascara worth $10.00? SO awesome!! 
Anyways, my absolutely favorite mascara that I can't find in stores anymore was the Maybelline XXL Volume & Length Microfiber Mascara.

When I received the Bombshell Curvaceous I thought it was similar to my beloved mascara - step one for length/step two for color. Unfortunately, it wasn't BUT it still works great. Step one added volume and really separated each lash, and step two added the darker color and acts as a top coat to seal in the look. I would definitely recommend this mascara to the waterproof loving gals - I just  don't do it. (Probably because I've never gotten around to purchase oil-based makeup remover.) This won't be my go to daily mascara, but I will be glad I have this for days like today when I head to the pool.  

Unfortunately, I wasn't able to try out the First Aid Shot Therapy - said to be a fast FDA approved liquid pain relief to combat headaches/migraine/hangovers etc. I wasn't comfortable with the amount of caffeine it had in it, and I figured it probably wasn't pregnancy approved. I did give it to CT for when he gets his next headache. He is game to try anything to relieve the pain. 
Grade pending! 

Have you tried any of these beauty products? 
Keep them in mind next time your are at the drug store. These are some good ones for the summer months.
