Sprout VoxBox reviews

I received my Sprout VoxBox from Influenster, so it's time to review some stuff! If you're not familiar with Influenster, let me tell's awesome. Short version: you write reviews of products and they send you 100% free products to try and review. You can receive things from beauty products to dog food(Psst...sign up here). 

The first product I tried was Curate's Dark & Tempting snack bar. Since I got my VoxBox in the mail a couple days after many other people, I lurked the #sproutvoxbox hashtag and read that many people didn't like this bar. I think the general consensus was that it is "too healthy tasting." I also don't really like figs, so I wasn't looking forward to trying this bar, but I actually loved it! The balsamic vinegar taste is very subtle and the hazelnuts add a great taste and texture to it. It's not like one of those fake-healthy granola bars that is loaded with sugar. It does taste healthy, but I don't think that's a bad thing at all. I would definitely take these along for hiking/camping. I've never seen these in any stores before, but if I find them I'm going to stock up. 

I tried Hair Food's moisture honey-apricot shampoo and conditioner and well....nothing about it stood out to me. The shampoo lathered very well and I think it smelled better than the conditioner did. I do like that they're both paraben-free and the shampoo is silicone-free. I just thought these were like hair products you find in a hotel-- they get the job done fine, but I wouldn't ever buy a full size bottle of it. 

I had to stop myself from eating these chips in one sitting. They're light, crunchy, and delicious. The flavor is subtle so they are good on their own or with a salsa or dip. I'm not sure what else I can say about chips besides that I would buy these.

I was happy to receive a sample of ECOS' laundry detergent because this is a brand that I use regularly on my clothes, though I had never used this scent before. It's hypoallergenic, good for people with sensitive skin, and smells great. However, it doesn't leave a strong scent on clothes, which many people equate with the clothes not being clean, but of course they are. I personally like that it doesn't leave a strong scent on clothes. Plus there are no dyes or formaldehydes, it's biodegradable, and is not tested on animals and has no animal ingredients. 

I've never been a fan of protein drinks, but I gave this one a shot. It's vegan, soy-free, and gluten-free. The directions said to mix the contents of the packet with only 4 ounces of dairy-free milk, but that kept the drink very concentrated which I didn't like. I added 4 more ounces of cashew milk and it was much better. It's not super-gritty in texture like many other protein drinks. However, I personally wouldn't buy this product. The reasons being: I don't ever buy protein drinks and this has stevia in it, and as I mentioned before, I don't like stevia. This product leaves a strong aftertaste of stevia in my mouth and I just can't stand it. But! If you like protein drinks and stevia doesn't bother you like it does me, I would totally recommend this product. 

Don't forget to sign up for Influenster so that you can start receiving 100% free VoxBoxes! 

Which of these products are you most interested in? Have you tried any of them? 

*I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes and all opinions stated here are mine!*
