love voxbox review

Greetings all! I've been away for so long and I feel like so much has happened recently, most of it positive and very exciting for me (: Over spring break I went to Italy with the Fairfield University Glee Club and had a FANTASTIC time. I might do a picture post sometime in the upcoming days. But for now, I've been meaning to post about the products I've tried from my Love Voxbox that I received about 2 weeks ago. 

(I opened my products before I could photograph them so I stole this photo from Sweets & Beauty)

Admittedly I haven't tried all the products yet, but the ones I have I really enjoyed.

1. Gillette Venus & Olay Razor: I usually use pretty cheap, disposable razors so this was a wonderful change for me. The lather is built around the blade so you don't need to prep with soap or shaving cream, and I didn't knick myself at all from using the brand new blades. Unfortunately it got kindof smushed and broken on the plane ride back from Italy so I had to throw it out, but I got a solid 2 weeks worth of use from it.

2. Stash Tea Herbal Tea Sampler: I had a cup of the Acai Berry tea before bed one night & it was perfect for falling asleep soothed.  A little bitter with the berry taste but overall good quality when steeped for a few minutes and sweetened with honey.

3. Ghirardelli Gourmet Milk Creamy Devotion Bar: So I gave up dessert for Lent... but snuck a tiny square of this oh-so-irresistible chocolate. What can I say besides it being melt-in-your-mouth delicious? 

I'm not a huge fan of artificial sweetners, even though Truvia claims to be "natural" I'd prefer using actually natural cane sugar to sweeten my coffee or tea. Something about having no calories can't be completely healthy, hmm? The cheetah print nail decals aren't exactly my style so I haven't tried them yet, but if I'm feeling feline-adventurous one day I might give them a shot. 

Life has been pretty awesome for me lately, and oh man this weather just makes it easier to be happy.
