Influenster Spring Fever VoxBox--Photos and Reviews, Part 1

The first part of my reviews are the two products from the Influenster Spring Fever VoxBox that have less to do with beauty: the snack cake and the deodorant. Although, you could feel more beautiful if you smell good and have had some chocolate?
*I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes.*

First up is Secret Outlast clear gel antiperspirant/deodorant. This is what Influenster's information card had to say: 

I'm sorry, I was not brave enough to test the deodorant for 48 hours. However, I did test it for 24 hours and I was still fresh and dry, so it gets a good grade from me for lasting power. By the way, why would you need it to last for 48 hours? Maybe I don't want to know...

The scent seemed strong to me, but more like alcohol than perfume. (Beware that it does contain dimethicone, for anyone who may have sensitivities.)

It felt very cold and wet going on, and it took a little longer than I expected to dry. I would recommend letting it dry while you brush your teeth or something, before putting your clothes on.

My final verdict on the Secret Outlast is that it is a good product, but I would not like to wear it every day, but only because of how it feels when initially applied. I am happy to have it on hand, though, because it does not leave white marks or other residue as long as you let it dry before dressing. Personally, I will save it for days when I am wearing sleeveless dark clothing.

Next is the Tastykake Kandy Bar Kake; I received the flavor S'mores. Influenster's product information had this to say:

They had me at 'chocolate enrobed'! Silly wording that still sounds delicious, in my opinion.

The bar was very sweet, but it was indeed tasty. The chocolate and the marshmallow were there, but I didn't taste any graham cracker flavor.

I was pleasantly surprised that the cake layers were as light and fluffy as they claimed to be. The snack was somewhat large to me, but it didn't seem like too much since the cake was light.

I probably wouldn't buy an entire box of these Tastykakes, but it was a nice treat and I would probably pick one up here and there if it were at a convenience store or checkout line. I would really like to try the Peanut Butter flavor--I adore peanut butter.

Coming up soon I will review the NYC balm and the Schwarzkopf hair powder that I received in this VoxBox, and let you know why I can't give a real review of the ImPress manicure.

Thanks for reading!
