#TLCVoxBox is filled with goodies – #product review

I’m sure it’s no surprise to you that I’ve gotten a bit behind on writing and reviews. If you’re new here then I’ll direct you to my first Cancer Journal entry, and this link directs you to a post that I think gives a good idea about my health. Right now let’s talk about the TLC VoxBox.

#TLCVoxBox 2I received the following products from Influenster for testing purposes. However, any opinions expressed here are my own. Please review my complete disclosure policy for more details.

I was pleased as soon as I opened the TLC VoxBox and saw its contents: Neosporin® Neo To Go, a coupon for a free galloon of Breyers® Gelato Indulgences™, one bar of Ivory Bar Soap, AVON Anew Reversalist Express Wrinkle Smoother, Puffs To Go single pack and a Shell Fuel Rewards Network Card.

Thus far, I’ve tested the Neo To Go (#NeoReady), Puffs To Go (#PassthePuffs) and, of course, the new Breyers Gelato Indulgences (#GelatoLove). The Puffs To Go packs a big puffy punch – the pack is perfect to carry in my purse or leave in the car, but to me the best part is how soft the tissues are. They’re ideal whether you’re using them to blow your nose or wipe lipstick off of your chin. At just 49 cents per single pack they’re also the best frugal choice.

 

Along with the Puffs, I also tossed the Neo To Go into my purse and waited for one of my children to hurt themselves. (Sounds a little manacle.) I figured it wouldn’t be long before someone falls off of a scooter, trips, scraps, bangs or scratches. A day went by then three… It’s like the presence of the Neo To Go prevented mishaps with the children, at least. I, having forgotten about a skin condition side effects was messing with some skin on my foot and caused a little cut. It was in a bad spot and it hurt. I sprayed the spot with the Neosporin and it stung a little despite the claim of being a “no sting spray.” I thought maybe it’s just me…

A few days later my middle daughter, 9-year-old Amareah, came to me with a scrap on her thumb. It was a small scratch and she’d been complaining about it, but instead of brushing her off I was excited to offer the Neo To Go.

“Does it sting,” Amareah asked.

“They say it doesn’t,” I said and gave her the innocent mom look.

Her expression of “ouch” let me know it wasn’t just me. “Oh, just blow it a little” was the nonchalant mom’s response. What does work though is the pain relief, which causes a slight numbing that’s very effective. I thought so and so did my daughter. If your children are able to tolerate a quick sting then this will work for you as well; if not, then I wouldn’t bother. It is an easy-to-use, fast working, infection protection spray.

#TLCVoxBox Breyer's Gelato 3

#TLCVoxBox Breyer's GelatoAfter (treating) a boo-boo, or surviving a disappointing day, you must pull a little treat out of your freezer to relax you. The best choice is Breyers Gelato Indulgences. I used my coupon for free coupon to get the Tiramisu flavor of the gelato and I’m not sure I’ve experienced anything like it before. (Not that I can recall.) I can’t even tell you if the gelato tastes like Tiramisu, but I can tell you it’s the best I’ve had to date. Just taking off the lid is a treat for the eyes. Check out the swirls of flavors in the carton and on the spoon; it’s really a trio of textures consisting of creamy gelato, luscious sauce and gourmet toppings.

I kept this gelato treat to myself – no kids allowed – and I enjoyed a bowl each night until it was gone. I’m still smiling about that and can’t wait to grab another carton from the freezer section at my local store. There are three other flavors to try of this new Breyers Gelato Indulgences and, to celebrate and support this Influenster campaign participants are showing couples how to create the perfect date night and have a new reason to spoon.
