Anyhoo-back to my fantastic box!
This is the first time I've received a box from them, so I had no idea what to expect. When it arrived, I thought it was pretty cool:
So I've had a few weeks exploring these items- now I'll let you know what I think!
Impress Press On Manicure: Admittedly, this is the part I was most excited to see when I first opened my box. I've been curious about these very fashionable faux nails that have been popping up everywhere lately, but hadn't given them a try yet. The last time I wore false nails, I was between the ages of 10-14. I CLEARLY remember asking my mother to get me a set for my 10th birthday (she did- yay!). I would wear them while riding my bike and I thought I was so fancy. These are much easier to put on than the fake nails of the past. The set I received was purple:
The back of each nail comes already prepped with sticky stuff. All you have to do is peel that clear tab off and press them on! SO much easier than the ones I tried before, where you had to put your sticky tabs on or use nail glue:
So, once they were on, they looked pretty good...
But, there were a few problems. First, my nail beds aren't very wide. My hands and fingers are the smallest part of me (for reference, my wedding ring is a size 4 1/2 :) so I typically don't fit well in "one size fits all" type situations. The other thing is that these are not very curvaceous. If you have any type of significant "C" curve in your nail, this will probably happen:
Another point I'd like to make is that my nails are on the longer side right now. I think if I had nubs right now, I'd find these to be a better fit.
Next items, Stash Tea and Nektar Honey Crystals:
I received a full size box of Stash Herbal & Green Tea "Superfruits":
I decided to try the blueberry tea first:
Oooh, and for the snack with my tea, I had my Quaker Soft Baked Oatmeal Cookie! Just kidding. I ate that thing as soon as my box arrived :D It was huge and soft and yummy. Reminded me of a homemade cookie:
After all my snacking, I couldn't wait to use my Dentek Floss Picks! (C'mon, that was the perfect segue!!!!) I use these regularly, even before receiving them in my Voxbox. I could not live without them! They are great to keep in your purse as well. You never know when your going to have that annoying piece of popcorn stuck in you teeth at the movies, right?
Lastly, there was a full size bar of Ivory Soap. Ivory soap is a classic. It's been around for years- 1891 is when it first came out (with the slogan, "It Floats!"). When I think of Ivory, I think of the words "clean" and "classic". And then, there's the smell- that delightful, pure, nostalgic smell. I kept sniffing my bar:
Have you tried any of these products before? What are your thoughts on the Impress Nails? Are you a coffee or tea person usually? Do the pictures of my soap suds entice you?
