FriXion by Pilot Pen:
$4.50 for a 3-pack/ $11.00 for 8-pack
Do you want to be mistake free? Now you can with FriXion by Pilot Pen. FriXion writes unbelievably smoothly, in expressive gel ink colors, and erases completely with its rubber tip. You have to try it to believe it! FriXion is the newest innovation from Pilot, the #1 seller of gel ink pens in America. So, with FriXion...who's perfect now?
|Received: 2 pens. 1 black & 1 Red.|
My thoughts: Being in college, I go through my fair share of pens. By coincidence, my favorite pen is Pilot G-2 07. So how did the Pilot FriXion hold out?
Pros: Erase-able pen, tough eraser, ball-point, writes smooth and comes in an array of colors.
Cons: Ink writes light.
Verdict: Honestly, this is a nice pen. The eraser is very hard (almost plastic), not like the mechanical pencil eraser were used to seeing on other erase-able pens.
Would I buy this item for myself?: No. I like my black ink to be black, not grey. Sorry FriXion.
A touch of red is pure magic! Bath & Body Works introduces you to their new, most luxurious fragrance ever, as you lavishly spray on a passionate blend of pomegranate & red osmanthus with a sexy surprise of vanilla rum, for a forever enchanting way to fragrance. Everyone will be commenting on how great you smell!

My thoughts: Every girl can use perfume right? The packaging is nice and simple. Let's see if this .25 fl oz bottle of pure magic smells as good as it sounds...
Pros: Flowery (Florally?) and fruity smell with a small kick of vannilla.
Cons: Very strong when sprayed & full version is too pricey.
Verdict: This perfume has a very nice scent. Only use a half spray because it can be overpowering. It has a sultry "come hither" smell.
Would i buy this item for myself? Yes, but only the small version. The scent is good but I can't see myself wearing such a "provocative" smell picking my daughter up from daycare or grocery shopping.
What the boyfriend thought: His exact words "Hmmm, smells great. Kinda Vanilla-e and flowers. Smells like something a stripper would wear." Well, there went my idea.
Ghirardelli Gourmet Milk Sea Salt Escape:
The decadently rich and creamy milk chocolate in Sea Salt Escape is combined with bursts of sea salt and roasted almonds delivering an epicurean chocolate experience. Experience a moment of timeless pleasure with all natural Ghirardelli Gourmet chocolate. Is your mouth watering too?
|1 full size bar|
My thoughts: Okay, i'm not going to lie. I took this photo right after opening my VoxBox so i could devour this little piece of heaven with my daughter. I hate nuts in my chocolate but i'm getting a tooth pulled tomorrow so what the heck!
Pros: It's chocolate (duh!)
Cons: It disappeared so quickly!
Verdict: Even though i hate nuts in my chocolate, the bar was delicious! The nuts were crushed up very fine, hence why I let my 1 year old eat some, so it gave the bar a crunch. The salt taste was hardly noticeable.
Would i buy this item for myself: Of course! Although, I may try another type of Ghiradelli chocolate just to venture out.
$3.50-$4.50 per month for blade refills
The fall Cosmo VoxBox contains not one, but two Venus products! Since any Venus blade refill fits any Venus razor handle, we're giving you two to mix-and-match!

Venus Embrace blade refills provide an ultra-close shave with five blades that hug curves to get virtually every hair. Available in 4- and 8- count packages.
Venus & Olay Razor
Venus & olay blade refills feature Olay Moisture bars that contain skin conditioners to help lock in moisture and with every smoothing stroke, Venus' five blades provide an ultra-close shave. Available in 3- count packages.
|1 Venus Embrace, 1 Venus & Olay refill and a $2 coupon|
My thoughts: What girl doesn't already own these? I use these (Venus & Olay razor) every time i shave because of my sensitive skin and my laziness to buy shaving gel.
Pros: Built in shaving gel, super sensitive to skin, cartridges can mix and match.
Cons: Yep, can't think of anything.
Verdict: This is my holey-grail product for shaving. I refuse to use anything other than this on my sensitive skin.
Would I buy this for myself?: I've used these for about 6 years and i plan on continuing. Keep it up Venus, you rock!
