Jingle Voxbox Unboxing + Review


Happy Monday! Now that I've finally tried everything in my Jingle Voxbox, I thought I'd share all of the goodies inside with ya'll!


So many goodies!


Spiderman Hallmark itty-bittys // How adorable are these little plush characters from Hallmark?! My siblings have a whole set of Disney princess and Star Wars characters and they absolutely love them. I've been dying to get these sets (1, 2, 3) for Lucy and this little guy will serve well for Parker's first itty-bitty! They make great stocking stuffers, Easter basket gifts or Valentine's gifts or even just a little everyday treat for your little one. I can't wait to grow my collection!


Biscoff Cookies // You know those Trader Joe's Speculoos cookies that everyone raves about? The ones that precious Cookie Butter is made of? Yeah, these cookies put those to shame. They're the same type of cookie (a speculoos shortbread with a hint of cinnamon) but just much better quality. These Biscoffs are light and airy but still have a great crunch; not dry and crumbly like most shortbreads. They go great with coffee or hot cocoa or just as a snack on their own. Even Lucy loves them!


Pure Ice Nail Polish in Scream // This used to be one of my favorite polish brands! I can't believe I forgot about it...it's such an affordable option and with tons of colors to choose from. The formula is what you'd expect from a $2 nail polish, pretty average. Depending on the shade it takes multiple coats, usually at least 2 and it's not the longest wearing but I can often get a week out of it with a good top coat. All in all, a great budget option, especially if you're looking to test a new shade.


Kiss True Volume Lashes Natural Plump in Posh + Kiss Strip Lash Adhesive with Aloe // Okay, so I haven't used these yet, but I've heard decent things about them and I'll try to come back and leave a full review once I've tested them out. Having hooded eyelids, I really struggle with false lashes and with my sensitive skin on top of that I have a hard time finding a lash glue that doesn't break me out. This lash glue is made with aloe and is latex free so I'm hoping it sits well with my skin issues. As for the lashes themselves....we'll see if I can figure those out!


Cetaphil Moisturizing Cream // HO-LY CRAP you guys! This stuff completely blew me away! I've searched high and low for moisturizer/lotion for my terrible dry, sensitive skin and have never found anything that was, like, a 100% win for me. This stuff is the end-all cure-all, no joke. It goes on smooth and soft, not greasy at all and soaks right in. I put it on before bed and when I woke up my face felt almost like Lucy's baby skin! SO SOFT. It's fragrance free, too which is an added bonus. I have always heard good things about Cetaphil products, but never took the leap because of the often hefty price tag. I don't think I'll have a problem paying any amount of money for this gem anymore!


NYC CityProof 24hr Waterproof Eyeliner Pencil in Black // This is the second NYC CityProof product I've received from Influenster and I'm still happy with the whole line. It's such an affordable brand and great quality for the price. I was skeptical about this eyeliner pencil at first, because I've never had great results with anything but gel + a layer of liquid. This one worked great! I don't know if I can say it's fully 24 hour of waterproof, but it doesn't smudge on my eyes and stays put for most of the day. I had it on from 8am to about 3pm before needing a touch up, but it wasn't a total mess and for a quick, everyday look it's definitely my new go-to. I added a layer of liquid liner on top to see if it lengthened the wear time and it definitely helped. All in all, a great product for a great price, but don't expect it to have high-end quality!



Ore Ida Tater Tots // This actually came as a coupon for a free package of Ore Ida tater tots. Who doesn't love free?! I've got a yummy recipe coming to the blog next week just for these, so stay tuned!
