This entitles me to be eligible to receive what they call Vox Boxes. They are boxes of products that people sample and then write reviews on, giving their honest opinion. I was lucky enough to be chosen for a box. I was SO excited. I love free stuff.
So, I am going to review the products they sent me. The products were free to me, but the opinions are my own.
Eggy was just as excited as I was when the package arrived.
Here is everything I got.
Vaseline Spray & Go Moisturizer Total Moisture
Dickinson's Original Witch Hazel Oil Controlling Towelettes
Colate Optic White Regimen: Toothpaste, toothbrush, and mouthwash
belVita Breakfast Biscuits
I used to use Sweet n Low in my coffee, but I knew how bad it was. So, I switched to straight sugar. I was interested to see how Nectresse tasted, since it's made by Splenda. It is described as being "primarily from monk fruit with other natural sweeteners."
I tried it first in my coffee. I figured if it was awful, the coffee would cushion the blow a bit.
There was a booklet about Nectresse and some different recipes to try it out on. I wanted to check it out, so I made a recipe for cinnamon hot chocolate. It was quick and easy.
1.5 c. hot milk
1 Tbsp cocoa powder
1 Tbsp mini chocolate chips
2 packets Nectresse
Stir all ingredients together until chocolate chips melt. Pour into two mugs and serve warm.
*I reheated the mugs after they were all stirred together to melt the chocolate chips more. I think this would turn out better if made on the stove, but then it wouldn't have the convenience of the microwave.
Overall, I like the Nectresse. It has zero calories and I really can't tell the difference between that and sugar. I wouldn't use it in baking items such as cookies or cakes, etc. I will continue to use it in my tea and coffee and I will probably make this hot chocolate recipe again. I thought it was pretty good.
Another food item I was given to review was the belVita breakfast biscuits. They come four to one pack and that is considered a serving. I had the flavor cinnamon brown sugar. There's only 230 calories in it. It was very filling. I think the four individual cookie biscuits gives the illusion that you are eating more. I could eat the biscuit and a piece of fruit for breakfast and be full until lunch. It's also a great snack to munch on the whole day. I would feel full, know how many calories I'm eating, and feel satisfied and not deprived.
The first bite I took, reminded me of the windmill almond cookies that my grandparents had when I was a kid, but better. They were crisp, but melted in my mouth. I ate one and was going to save the others, but I came back a few minutes later and finished them off.
The other products I will have to use a while to see how I like them. I am interested to see if the Colgate Optic White regimen works since I am an avid coffee drinker.
