On Friday January 27th I received my 2017 Resolution VBOX curiosity of Influenster, a community of over 2 million socially savvy shoppers that reviews products, share honest opinions with brands and the community while testing products based on social media influence.

As a blogger it’s always exciting to receive free products but this box in particular was extra special, as it was the first freebies I’d received for 2017! The box came filled with a bunch of good-for-you treats that were placed strategically to kickstart 2017 in the right direction. I was also happy to find some of my favorite brands including Sabra, Burt’s Bee, Crispy Green, Pop Chips, Orabrush and Febreeze.

Here is my honest review of each item included in the 2017 Resolution VBOX:

POPCHIPS – Sour Cream & Cheddar

Product Claims: All Natural, no preservatives, no artificial flavors/colors,  no cholesterol, no saturated fat, 0 grams trans fat, vegetarian, gluten-free.

Key Ingredients: Sour Cream & Sharp Cheddar

My opinion: These chips were crunchy and somewhat delightful, however, I did not like the flavor combination of cheddar and sour cream. These chips also had a really bad after taste that discouraged me from finishing the entire bag.

Overall product rating, on a scale of 1-10?

5 out of 10.

Would I purchase these chips in the future? Not this one in particular but other Popchips flavors, yes!


Product Claims: Febreze ONE Fabric & Air Mist Bamboo gently removes odors with just a hint of misty bamboo scent. No aerosols, dyes, or heavy perfumes, either. This versatile spray gently cleans away odors from both fabrics and the air without ’em. Plus, the reusable nozzle lets you switch between other Febreze ONE scent refills.

Key Scent: Bamboo

Easy to use? Yes

My opinion: I absolutely love this spray, aside from it’s natural properties and aroma essence, the Febreze One Bamboo Air Mist is a great lightweight freshening agent for fabrics and air. It help to freshen my room and sheets without the nasty chemicals that are usually in air sprays, and the best feature of all, I didn’t get an allergic reaction like I normally do when exposed to air mist and sprays. The packaging is also great for long term storage and even travel as the base is made out of plastic and spray cap is interchangeable.

Would I purchase this mask in the future? Maybe, but definitely a version without chocolate as the brand does have several other options.

SABRA – Guacamole grab and go

Product Claims: Fresh taste of  guacamole, made with Mexican-grown Hass avocados. This authentic recipe is flavorful and chunky—just like homemade.

Key Ingredients: Hass Avocado, Onion, Tomato, Jalapeño Pepper, Salt, Garlic, Lime Juice Concentrate, Dehydrated Onion, Cilantro, Ascorbic Acid (added to maintain freshness).

My opinion: Having be an avid shopper of the Sabra brand, often purchasing the classic hummus and salsa dip I was pretty excited to try the guacamole grab-and-go although I usually make homemade guacamole at home. It was no surprise that the flavor and taste of this guacamole was out of this world as it was the perfect blend of salt, lime and creamy avocado. The not so smooth and not so chunky consistency of the guacamole gave it the perfect homemade appeal.

Would I purchase this mask in the future? Most definitely.

ORABRUSH – Tongue Cleaner

Product Claims: Orabrush Tongue Cleaner banishes bad breath with specially designed bristles that loosen bad-breath germs from your tongue. It also has a scraper that collects and removes the germs removes.

Health Concern: Bad Breath

Easy to use ? Yes

My opinion: The Orabrush Tongue Cleaner works way better than any toothbrush I’ve tried when it comes to cleaning the tongue and removing build-up as it gave me a much longer-lasting fresh breath between tooth-brushings, which helped reduce the tendency to form plaque between check-ups. I did feel minor discomfort when first using the brush but that feeling quickly when away after I began to use the brush more frequently and got use to the feel of the brush against my tongue.
