Influenster Violet VoxBox #VoxJoy

1. Goody QuikStyle Paddle Brush with Microfiber Bristles - $11.99

Curly girl, here. I would not use this brush on a regular basis. I repeat, curly hair = NO BRUSHING. OF ANY KIND. Got it? Okay, cool. But if I were straightening my hair . . . that's another story. I have very, very thick hair so it takes about a million years to dry. I was hoping this brush would help reduce my drying time, especially in conjunction with my hair dryer. While this brush definitely helped reduce drying time, it pulled my hair just a little harder than usual. I would still use this brush in the future, but I'll most likely rotate between this and my regular paddle brush. (I also smooth and style with a giant round brush once I'm about 90% dry from the paddle brush + hair dryer combo.)

2. SoyJoy Banana Whole Soy and Fruit Bar - $12.99/box of 12

I was pretty skeptical when I saw this in my box. Healthy bars aren't usually all that tasty and I wasn't thrilled with the banana flavor. It doesn't taste as bad as I thought, though. In fact, I think in another flavor I would really like it. The flavoring was actually closer to banana bread than just banana, so that made it better. I felt good about snacking on a healthier alternative.

3. Sally Hansen Triple Shine Nail Polish in Sparkling Water - $4.59

Um, apparently Influenster didn't watch my Sweater Weather vlog to know my nail polish color preferences. ;) I kid, I kid. But seriously. Anyway, this color is SO not me, so that makes this a sad review. Color aside, I really love the formula and application of this polish. The brush is rounded and wide, making it super easy to apply (even if you're not as talented painting with your less dominant hand as I most definitely am not). I also really loved the shimmer. Sadly, I won't be sporting this often just because I can't stand looking down and thinking I have alien fingers. Somehow, it looks nice on everyone else, but I just can't do it! I'll stick with pink and red. So sue for being classic. :)

4. Goody Athletique Adjustable Yoga Wicking Headband - $6/one

I really like this headband. I've tried quite a few athletic headbands and most are too tight and give me a headache. This is adjustable and actually kind of cute. It never slipped off my head while I worked out and it kept my hair and sweat away from my face. The price is a little high for one headband, but I think it'd be worth it knowing how well it works.
