review: Cosmo VoxBox '12

I've been a bad, bad Influenster... I got my Cosmo VoxBox a few weeks ago and I'm just now getting to writing about it. Oops! In my defense, things have been crazy lately, however, here we are. So, what did I get?

1. Forever Red Exclusively at Bath & Body Work
-If you're a fan of vanilla scented fragrances this is a perfume that you should certainly check out. The rich vanilla rum scent is the first thing I notice, but like most Bath & Body Works products it manages to have a sweet, fresh scent rather than other brands who sometimes seem to mistake vanilla for a heavy, musky scent. While I do think Forever Red smells good, vanilla is not really my choice of perfume so I'll be passing this along to my mom, she's a huge fan of their other vanilla lotions, perfumes, and body sprays.

2. Pilot FriXion pens (orange & black)
-I love ink pens, it's right up there with my journal/paper goods collecting habit. I'm not crazy about the FriXion branding, but overall the pens are pretty nice. The orange was a bit too bright and hard to read, but I think a kid in middle school may think it's the neatest pen on Earth. I was a big fan of the black pen - smooth writing, no globs of ink collected and caused the pen to stop writing or created blobs in my writing, and the caps fit on tightly so there was no worry of leaky pens in my purse. If the tribal design takes a hike, I would most likely buy these for work. Right now, they will remain tucked away in my notebook to plan my sister's spring gender reveal party.

3. Gillette® Venus® Embrace®
-Funny that I got this razor in my VoxBox because this is actually my favorite disposable razor! I quit buying them when the disposables became the same price as the handle with interchangeable blades, but now that I have the handle I suppose I can start purchasing the refill packs.Until Venus started making multiple-blade razors I didn't even use women's razors, true story - I always used men's because they had better blades for a closer shave. The first time I tried these I was surprised not only by how great they were, but that the moisturizing strip was superior to that on men's razors. If you've considered purchasing this razor in the past - do it now!

4. Gillette® Venus® Embrace® Olay™ refill blade
-I've already talked about how great the razor is, and how much I like the original blade. Of course the Olay refill has even more moisturizers in it, making your skin even smoother and more hydrated. Again - definitely worth giving a shot!

5. Ghirardelli Sea Salt Escape
-I was so skeptical about this chocolate when I saw it in the box. For me, salt and chocolate do not sound like a good combo, but as of late sea salt chocolate has been cropping up everywhere. I gave it a shot and it was actually really good! There's just enough sea salt for you to get this nice mix of salty sweetness in every bite, but it's not overpowering. It even makes the chocolate seem more creamy if that makes any sense.

6. Gillette® Venus® Embrace® coupon
-No real review for a coupon... it's definitely that extra bit of encouragement to go for the slightly pricier refill in the future. Also, if you're a couponer you might want to be on the look out for coupons like this one in sale papers.
