Sweetheart VoxBox: Olay Fresh Effects


In the VoxBox, I received a {Va-Va-Vivid} cleansing brush and {Shine, Shine Go Away!} shine minimizing cleaner.  I have been wanting to try a battery-powered brush like this for a while since, even though I am 24, my acne is acting up worse than when I was 15.  Awful, right?

After wetting my face and the brush, I applied a large pea-sized amount of cleanser to the brush.  I turned the brush on and massaged my face for about a minute.  The shine minimizing cleanser did not lather very much like it said it would, but it still cleaned thoroughly and left my face feeling fresh, not greasy, without being too dried out.  I couldn't figure out exactly what the scent was, but it does smell very fresh and clean.

Especially since it is $6.99 for a full tube, less than many cleansers I have tried, I will definitely purchase the shine minimizing cleanser again to go with the powered brush.  However, if not for the brush, the cleanser would not be as beneficial for me.  I tried applying it by hand, and my face was still a bit greasy.  If you would like to buy the whole set, it is less than $13 on Amazon.  Having the cleansing brush is definitely the best part of this system.



Overall review: 8/10

I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes.

Stopping by from Wednesday Walkabout! I actually bought that shine reducing cleanser but haven't tried it yet. Maybe I should pick up the scrubber thing. Thanks for the review!

I need to check into this! I've always wondered how those powered brush cleanser things work, have you seen the Clarisonic?? That thing is ridiculously expensive! This looks like a good, cheap alternative for sure.

I was just thinking today that I'm not super happy with my skin right now. I will definitely look out for that.

I think you've sold me on trying that brush. My skin has been acting up like I'm 15 again too. Although I can't even tell from your pictures! Meg, you are so pretty! :)
