Surf’s Up for Summer ~ #SurfsUpVoxBox

I love the beach! And by love, I mean I LOVE the beach. There’s nothing better than the surf, the sun and the sand and if you throw in a warm ocean breeze, I am in heaven. This weekend, I’m finally going!! It will be my first beach trip in a couple of years and I’m so excited. My friends go fairly often but they always seem to choose days that I happen to be working but not this time! We’re hitting the shore and my Surf’s Up VoxBox from Influenster has arrived at just the right time.

Inside this VoxBox is a bevy of beach items to ensure that my day in the sun will be fun and fierce. First up is SinfulColors Professional Nail Polish in Aqua. My love affair with nail polish is well documented and I’m happy to add this shade to my collection. The color is gorgeous and in true aqua fashion, it is both blue and green. It also looks great in natural light and under flourescents. I like to wear several different colors at a time and this shade almost eliminates the need to do that. Sometimes it’s blue, sometimes it’s green. Win, win!

Next up is Hawaiian Tropic Silk Hydration After Sun. I’m already in love with this soothing aloe gel as it really came in handy after running The Happiest 5K on the Planet. Race day was super sunny and with nary a piece of shade in sight, the sun really did a number on my skin. This combination gel/lotion feels good, smells great (papaya and coconut) and provides lightweight, long-lasting hydration. It’s a perfect summer skin refresher and I’m sure it’s going to be great for my beach outing.

What’s a trip to the beach without carefree beachy waves that blow freely in the breeze? Now you can wash the experience of the beach into your hair with Not Your Mother’s Beach Babe Texturizing Shampoo and Conditioner. With sea kelp extract and coconut oil, this duo gives you great beach hair with no risk of getting sand in your eyes. Can’t beat that!

Now, we move on to the yummy stuff. I love Jamba Juice but for some reason, I haven’t had a single drop all summer. I think I work too much and I’ve been too busy to stop and get a smoothie! What gives?! Anyway, I’m super grateful that I received a coupon for a Jamba Juice Smoothie Kit. Just like the ones you get in-store, these smoothies are packed with delicious fruit, vitamins and antioxidants. All you have to do is add juice and blend. Can’t wait to get mine!

Last but not least is First Aid Shot Therapy for Pain Relief. I’ll be honest, I am completely unfamiliar with drinkable pain relief. Over the years, I’ve mastered swallowing over-the-counter painkillers with the best of them but in truth, that wasn’t always the case. When I was a kid, pills were not my friend. It would take me an hour to get a single aspirin down my throat. It was something about a dry pill and where to put it so as not to choke that gave me fits. The degree of difficulty meant that I’d often give up and just live with the pain. Maybe if I’d had some First Aid Shot Therapy, I would have been spared a few rough nights! I’ll try it out the next time I have a headache and I’ll let you know how it goes.

Thanks for reading!

    I am curious about the After Sun Hydration by Hawaiian Tropic. Its the first time I've heard of it,

  3. 14 August 2014 / 10:22 PM

    I love that aftersun stuff, it feels so nice and works perfectly! I keep looking at the shampoo and conditioner, I love beachy waves. I've never heard of drinkable pain relief! How cool, though I wonder how gross it tastes.

    What a fun box for summer! We use sunscreen all the time1

  5. 14 August 2014 / 7:57 PM

    I also love the beach. The colors the nail polish come in are so nice and vibrant. After sun skin care is so important. Great post, enjoy the beach.

  6. 14 August 2014 / 7:06 PM

    I love these products. The nail polish is awesome. I so love the colors. Thanks for sharing.

  7. 14 August 2014 / 5:52 PM

    I always use Hawaiian Tropic after sun. Even though I´ve tried other brands I always go back to it. Lovely summer shades of nail polish!

  8. 14 August 2014 / 3:23 PM

    I have seen so many of these boxes online but none as appropriate as this one! I love that lotion. I do alot of canoeing so am out in the sun and while I use my sunscreen, this lotion for afterwards is just what I need to find. thanks so much I hope you have a blast with your friends at the beach.

  9. 14 August 2014 / 5:20 AM

    The aqua color polish is awesome! You have some great fingernails lady! I wish mine were like that!

      Thanks! I had to cut them though because they were getting quite long. Thanks for stopping by.

  10. 14 August 2014 / 5:07 AM

    thats a great package..

  11. 14 August 2014 / 4:41 AM

    Mmmmm, that sounds like the perfect summer all-in-one kit! Looks like so much fun~ Love the metallic turquoise nail color. And Hawaiian Tropic products instantly transport me to somewhere tropical…. (then again, my family is originally from Hawai'i, so I'm biased…) 😉 Aloha!

    summer time! Wow, its almost over! Some great products in this post!

  13. 14 August 2014 / 1:14 AM

    I'm far from a beach so I would love to bring the beach to me. Especially with the Not Your Mother's Beach Babe shampoo & conditioner, my tresses would love it!

  14. 14 August 2014 / 12:06 AM

    They have nice colors for nail polish. It's also the first time I see a drinkable pain reliever but this is really helpful.

  15. 13 August 2014 / 8:59 PM

    What fun! I love the blue nail polish. Such a great color!

  16. 13 August 2014 / 8:44 PM

    I need to try this after sun lotion!


  17. 13 August 2014 / 6:57 PM

    My cheetah would enjoy playing with that empty box!!

  18. 13 August 2014 / 6:51 PM

    The shot seems interesting.. I am not sure about drinking it either but the past few times, my wife was in pain from the sun.

  19. 13 August 2014 / 6:00 PM

    i doubt if my sis knows she will buys such goodies.

  20. 13 August 2014 / 5:49 PM

    I am so jealous! I really wanted this box. I wanted it for the Hydration after sun mostly. I always feel like my skin gets very dry after laying out!

  21. 13 August 2014 / 4:40 PM

    This collection has me wishing I could go to the beach. Unfortunately I am landlocked, but I could enjoy some of these items at the pool!

  22. 13 August 2014 / 2:45 PM

    So jealous! I would love to try those smoothies out!

  23. 13 August 2014 / 7:41 AM

    I love the blue nail polish, although for myself I would choose a darker blue or a electric blue color. I haven't tried other products, but this after sun looks amazing!

  24. 13 August 2014 / 6:26 AM

    You got all that in the box? Da-a-ang! I want some!

  25. 13 August 2014 / 5:00 AM

    That looks like such a fun box to get. I would love to try that After Sun lotion.

      It's silky smooth and smells SO good!

  26. 13 August 2014 / 4:49 AM

    I LOVE Sinful colors nail polish, it is so amazing! Also I have Not your Mother's Beach spray I believe it is and it's great! I'll be checking these out, thank you for the great review!

    • 13 August 2014 / 5:14 AM

      It is really good. I'd never tried them before and I'm really impressed. Gonna by a bunch for my niece, she's new to nail polish and these will be perfect.

  27. 13 August 2014 / 4:39 AM

    You got me so curious with First Aid Shot Therapy. Like you, this is also the first time I'm learning about drinkable pain reliever. It sounds quite innovative and it did piqued my interest. Lemme know how it goes when you finally get to try it.

    • 13 August 2014 / 5:12 AM

      I certainly will! Thanks for stopping by.
