I received my first ever VoxBox from Influenster and it was full of goodies!
This particular box was called the Bonita VoxBox and it included the following:
- A full-size bottle of Dickinson’s Enhanced Witch Hazel
- A sample and coupon from Revlon
- An individual serving of Fiber One brownies
- A generous sample of Madam C.J. Walker Beauty Culture Dream Come True Wonderful Pre-Wash Protein Treatment and Deep Conditioning Masque
- A full-size bottle of SinfulColors nail polish
I’ve tried the Dickinson’s Enhanced Witch Hazel hydrating toner and it leaves my skin feeling moisturized but not oily. The only thing that I am not happy with is the scent. I can’t describe it but I was expecting a mint scent maybe? Something fresh and light? But this toner is great so I will definitely use the entire product.
Next was the sample from Revlon.
I’ve already tried both colors and they both felt moisturizing but they stayed “wet” feeling and I’m not a super fan of lip gloss. It did come with a coupon so I may buy one of the lipsticks but probably not the lip gloss.
Marvin and I shared this single serving size of Fiber One Brownies. Marvin didn’t care for them. He said that they lacked flavor. I thought they were alright. I mean it’s not like a for real brownie with all it’s fatty goodness.
When we unboxed this in the video I thought it was a face mask and I was like, eh. But it turns out that it is a hair masque and I’m all about trying that!! I will be trying it soon so watch my blog for my thoughts on this.
The last product from the box was this full-size nail polish from SinfulColors. I really liked the color. I have tried this and had it on for almost 4 full days and so far it is holding up well! I’m doing a separate blog post on this as well so stay tuned!
Did any of y’all get this VoxBox? If so, link your blog below so I can check it out!

I received this bottle of SinfulColors Limited Time Porcelain Matte nail polish in my recent Bonita VoxBox and so far I am loving it! It’s a great summer color and usually retails for $1.99-$2.99 in stores.
Thursday night I painted my nails. I first started with a base coat of Bonder by Orly. I then applied two coats of the SinfulColors polish in We’re All Matte Here and ended with a topcoat of Essie Gel-setter topcoat and it wore very well!
When the polish dries it has a flat or matte finish, and it is part of the porcelain matte line so that makes sense. When I added the Essie gel-setter top coat it gave it a really great shine and helped my polish to last longer. I haven’t tried the polish without a gloss topcoat yet but when I do, I’m sure I’ll mention it on SnapChat or my IG or something.
Here’s how my nails look after 4 days.
As you will notice there is some wear but overall I think it lasted well. Especially considering a manicure at the salon usually lasts me about 2-3 days before chipping etc. Since it wore so well last night I added another coat of polish and gel-setter topcoat and my nails look fresh and ready to go for a few more days!

I tried ZzzQuil™ Sleep-Aid from the makers of Vicks NyQuil™ the other night. I typically will wake up several times a night just thinking about things like what I need to do the next day. I was hoping that by taking these 2 ZzzQuil™ LiquiCaps would help me have a more restful nights sleep.
I went to bed around my usual time of 10:15 p.m. after taking the ZzzQuil™ with a glass of water. I also have a FitBit™ so I knew that it would help me track my sleep. Here’s a snapshot of my sleep quality from that evening.
Now the initial restless/awake time was somewhat normal. I did not feel like the ZzzQuil™ helped me fall asleep any faster than not taking it.
What was interesting though is the additional restless and awake periods I experienced. My expectation was that I would sleep through the night and possibly only wake to use the restroom but as you can see, that was not the case. I was actually restless and awake a little more than usual.
Based on my personal experience though, it’s not a product I would recommend. The product did come with a $2 coupon inside so I am tempted to purchase the product so that I can try it again to see if I have a different experience.
Have you ever tried this? Did it help you have a better night’s sleep?

Sometimes simple desserts are the best. Angel food cake with some strawberries really hits the spot on a hot summer night.
