Don't you love getting packages in the mail? It's almost as exciting as tearing open a Christmas present! Luckily for me, Influenster must know my love of receiving packages because they sent me some goodies I`d like to share.
The Back-2-School Voxbox is chock-full of products that were picked to help Mom's and their kids tackle the new school year. This box was unusual for me because my son just turned 3. So he won't be going to Pre-K/4-K for another 2 years. Also there are a number of coupons that need to be redeemed. Don't get me wrong, the coupons provided are nearly all for free products, but an unboxing is more fun when there are a hefty amount of actual product.
Speaking of coupons, in the Voxbox is a coupon for Country Crock Buttery Spread. With that came a cookie recipe card. Not much is more satisfactory than after school or after homework snacktime, and the snack of the day is cookies. Country Crock is actually my favorite type of butter spread, so this was nice to recieve.
Retail value: $1.99 - $3.12 (15oz - 45oz)
Also conveniently placed inside are two flavors of Plackers. Micro Mint and Kids Fruit Smoothie Swirl flossers easily remove plaque and buildup between the teeth (that can't be reached by brushing alone). These are perfect for kiddos who have braces too, btw.
Retail price: Micro Mint - $2.59, Fruit Smoothie Swirl - $2.99 available at Target.com
Another option for an after school snack are the Land O'Frost Deli Snackers. Deli Snackers are a baked meat snack made from high-quality, oven roasted meats. Since fresh food isn't traditionally shipped via USPS, I can understand why Influenster gave a coupon instead.
Retail Value: $1.49 for each 2oz package.
The next item in the box is something well needed for any mom who has to wake up early to get themselves, and their kids, ready for the day. Coffee! Kauai Coffee, from Hills Bros, are single serve pods that can be used in any K-Cup style brewer. What's innovative is the fact that they are 100% compostable. Feel like a super hero while saving the earth lol.
Retail price: $6.99 for a 12ct carton
The last item, and my favorite, in the box are two different color Pilot G2 pens. If ya didn't know, Pilot G2's are the #1 selling gel ink brand in America and proves to last longer than pens of the same type. Now, I am a strict pen-only user when I write. These pens are amazing! High pigment, are INKY not dry, they don't smudge and dry incredibly fast. Perfect for me since I'm a lefty and pinky-smudge is a something we're cursed with. I highly recommend and will definitely repurchase.
Retail price: $2.79/2-pack Pilot G2 Pens, $6.29/4-pack Pilot G2 Pens, $6.97/5-pack G2 Fashion Pens
Though this box was meant for back to school use, it will definitely be used, just not in that way. Every item is needed, whether you have school-aged kids or not. I'd like to thank Influenster for their generosity! They gifted me this complimentary Voxbox in exchange for reviews and testing purposes.
