I've had a chance to try out most of the items, and overall have been impressed that at least two of them are ones that I will continue to purchase on my own.
The clear winner in this box (in my opinion) was the Colgate Optic White line. There was a toothbrush, toothpaste, and mouthwash. With my wedding just weeks away, I'm more than happy to find any way to get my teeth whiter, and this line has really done the trick. I was consistent with using the toothpaste twice a day, every day, but only used the mouthwash 3-4 times a week. I'm not great with mouthwashes, and there was an aftertaste that didn't sit well with me. But I found that if I rinsed my mouth out with warm water after I had used it, I didn't notice the taste anymore. The good news is that I can already see a difference after using this for just 3 weeks, and plan on purchasing the toothpaste this weekend.
I also really loved the brush. The bristles were not too hard, and the back of the toothbrush cleaned the inside of your cheeks. I felt like my teeth got a really good cleaning every time I used it.
A very close second was the Vaseline Spray & Go moisturizer. This stuff is awesome. It doesn't leave any greasy residue, and dries immediately after you spray and rub in. I don't even have to wash my hands after I use it! My legs feel so soft after I put it on, and it has really helped my skin get moisturized leading up to wearing a top-revealing wedding dress. Of course, it's perfect for tank tops and shorts as we head into the warmer months. I used the Total Moisturizer one, but would love to try the Aloe as well. I'm sure it's perfect to use after a day in the sun. For just under $6, it's a little bit pricier than the generic brand lotion I usually by, but the can has gone a long way and the results seem to be worth it.
The final product (for today) are the belVita Breakfast Biscuits. I'm not gonna lie- the Cinnamon Brown Sugar flavor was delicious! But the amount of carbs and sugar in these will keep me from ever eating a whole package for my breakfast. Yes, they contain whole grains, but I don't know that it's enough to really keep me satisfied throughout the morning. So my solution was to just eat one biscuit with breakfast, and added it to my non-fat greek yogurt and fresh berries. The added crunch was perfect, and I didn't feel so guilty knowing it was paired with a well-rounded meal. If you're wanting a bite of something to curb your sweet tooth, I think these are a great option. I just wouldn't recommend eating a whole package for your breakfast.
Has anyone else tried any of these products? Can you think of any other ways to incorporate a belVita biscuit into a healthy meal?
I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes.
