Last month I was sent the Bloom VoxBox from Influenster, full of products to help you get ready for spring! Influenster is a company that sends out products to try, free of charge, to qualifying participants. All you have to do in return is give them some feedback and a review! Signing up is totally free, and while you're not guaranteed to get any boxes, what's the harm in trying? It's easy and worth a shot. Sign up here! (That's my referral code, btw. I get a few points added to my account, which helps me qualify for more boxes!) Anyway, here's what was inside.

Cutex Advanced Revival Nail Polish Remover Pads / I thought this was a really great product - for someone else. So basically these are individually wrapped wipes doused in nail polish remover, so all you have to do is whip one out and wipe your nails down with it. I LOVE things that are meant to make your life easier, but for me these just didn't work. I use a lot of glitter on my nails. A LOT. Most of my manicures consist of a base color and three coats of glitter polish. Unfortunately my glitter polish just tore these wipes up. You know how when you go to take off glitter polish with a cotton ball, but after you've already started wiping you realize you didn't saturate the cotton ball with enough remover, and the cotton ball gets all stuck to your nail and everything is just a a big frizzy mess? That's what happened with these wipes. So I highly recommend these as long as there's NO GLITTER on your nails. Another thing to know is that the wipes dry out quite fast, so work quickly!

Not Your Mother's Plump For Joy Spray / I've yet to find ANY spray that does ANYTHING for my thick, fine hair. It's like no matter how much spray I use, my hair just eats it right up and goes back to looking how it normally does. So unfortunately I can't give much feedback on this spray. I can say that the smell is pleasant and that it didn't leave my hair feeling heavy or greasy, which is nice :)

NUXE Huile Prodigieuse Multi-Purpose Dry Oil / I'm just gonna be real with you guys. I can't figure out what to do with this. Pro tips???

Sunbelt Bakery Granola Bars: Oats and Honey / Yum :) Tastes like the Nature Valley granola bars, but not hard as a rock. These are on the chewier side (but not too chewy), which I like.

Sinful Colors nail polish in Teal Midnight / Generally I really like this brand. In my experience their polishes last very well, especially considering that you can often find them on sale for 99 cents. Unfortunately this particular polish I was not crazy about. It's a blue glitter polish, but has a blue jelly like base coat that's too sheer to wear alone (you'd need at least 5 coats to make it opaque), but too dark to wear over a different color polish without ruining the other color. So I guess if you wanted to use a different blue polish as a base coat it'd be fine, but for me that's no fun. I like to mix and match my polish with a contrasting glitter :)

Secret Outlast Deodorant / I don't have much of an opinion on this one?? I mean it's not a bad deodorant, but it's not particularly amazing? It's deodorant. Hahah. I'm keeping this little guy in my bag, because summertime gets smelly.
