JĀSÖN Hand Soap September 22, 2011

Another item from Influenster was this JĀSÖN Naturals Soothing Aloe Vera Hand Soap.  I figured it wouldn’t be very interesting to take photos so I decided to make a video with my very favorite song which was created by my tax dollars. (That is a different rant for a different time) anyway, this soap is made of Aloe Vera  (do you sense a theme with these influenster items? Lots of Aloe – you’d think that was all that was needed to make something “natural”)

This soap has nearly no smell – but the slight odor is very light and plesant. It doesn’t really smell like anything – it just smells clean. I like it a lot.  Just the other day I spotted the full product line at Nature’s Market here in Kent, WA. I was quite excited. When this one runs low I will definitely pick up a new one. I think next time I’ll try the lavender. I like things with a light lavender fragrance.

This soap is very soothing and leaves my hands feeling soft and clean.

I would recommend this to anyone who wants to switch to a different soap than they typically use.

The Natural Dentist Rinse September 20, 2011

The Natural Dentist Rinse is probably my least favorite item from my Influenster August Naturals Vox Box. This is a mouth wash made of Aloe Vera. I am used to mouth washes tasting icky, but this?

I saw this and really wanted to like it – it seemed like such a great idea – washing your mouth with Aloe. So, I shook it up as instructed, poured out my adult dose, swished it around, spit, rinsed, rinsed, rinsed, rinsed – the taste never went away – brushed – the taste was still there – ate something. Okay, next time I was ready to try it again knowing that the taste was pretty bad. I shook it up after verifying the cap was on tight, took my dose and still decided it was not a good flavor to me. Then I looked at my uncapped bottle which had apparently, during removal of my cap, allowed a lot of the product to seep onto my counter – sticky icky. So they get an F- for packaging, and a D for flavor, but the one thing that it did pretty well was leave my teeth feeling super smooth. I’d be open to trying it again if it were reformulated.
If you are willing to deal with the horrible flavor to enjoy smooth feeling teeth than try it! If not, go get a sonic crest tooth brush which will leave your teeth feeling smooth – and you can use any darn toothpaste flavor you like.

Avalon Organics Nourishing Cherry Aloe Lip Balm Review September 19, 2011

Next up from Influenster is the Avalon Organics Nourishing Cherry Aloe Lip Balm. Unfortunately there isn’t much to see outside the product photos I’ve taken. While it is nourishing and conditioning – there is nothing you can really see with my camera/lighting as far as swatches or anything.

This balm is a clear gloss similar to a Burts Bees. Do you remember those Luden’s cherry cough drops that tasted like candy? That is exactly what this smells like. I love the scent and the flavor. It feels good on my lips, is not sticky, and lasts for a good couple hours.

It seems to retail for between $2.00 and $5.00 at grocery and drugstores. I will definitely keep an eye open for these and pick them up in the future. They are just as good as my beloved Burts Bees and a nice change.
