Sugar 'n Spice VoxBox ReviewWednesday, May 08, 2013
I originally wanted to vlog this, but I'm sick, and my voice is pretty much completely gone. Like, I literally can barely manage a low whisper half the time. No bueno. That's also why I didn't use photographs I took myself; I figured if ever there was a time it was okay to be lazy, it's now.
But anyway, as you may know, I'm an Influenster member. I qualified for the Sugar 'n Spice VoxBox program, so I received a complimentary box with full-size products in it for testing purposes. I was able to vlog my first impressions when I received the box, and all in all, I'm pretty happy with what I received.
Colgate Optic White Toothpaste, Toothbrush, and Mouthwash
The toothpaste is a good kind of minty, and it always leaves my mouth feeling (and smelling!) fresh. I haven't used it consistently since I've gotten (I often use my Aquafresh when I'm stumbling around in the morning), so I haven't had major whitening, but I have had some noticeable whitening, which is always nice.
I'm not crazy about the mouthwash. It's supposedly the same flavor as the toothpaste, but I don't think they taste anything alike. The mouthwash's flavor is just not appealing to me. I use it though for the sake of its whitening prowess.
NECTRESSE Natural No Calorie Sweetener
Nectresse boasts natural ingredients, so I was intrigued. When I checked the ingredients though, the main ingredient is erythritol. Erythritol is something that can be naturally found in fruit, but sweetener companies ferment it from corn riddled with GMOs, which doesn't make it as natural as they'd like to make us think. As such, I only used it once in a glass of tea. It was sweet, and didn't have the chemical aftertaste many sweeteners have, but I think I'll stick to my natural sweeteners.
