Sugar 'N Spice - YUMMommy

Sugar 'N Spice


So, I know that I'm late posting this but I got this sweet (and I do mean sweet) Sugar 'N Spice VoxBox from Influenster not too long ago.  Let me tell you, these voxboxes just keep getting better and better.  I've already gotten a third one, but we'll talk about that one next week.  For now here's a peak at what the goodies from the Sugar 'N Spice one.



Being the foodie and lover of food that I am, the first thing I tried was the package of belVita Breakfast Biscuits.  You get 4 biscuits in each pack and there are 5 packs per box for $3.69.  Not going to lie, i was little worried if these were going to have a medicine type taste to them because some breakfast biscuits/bars with vitamins do.  But I was pleasantly surprised.  They tasted great!  

In fact, I was a little sad when realized I had eaten all 4 of my biscuits.  I did go to my Food Lion to hunt these down but they didn't have them.  Never the less belVita Breakfast Biscuits not only have a good source of fiber, but you also get B-vitamins which are great for energizing your body.  And there's no high fructose corn syrup because we've all seen the commercials and/or read some of the controversial research about high fructose corn syrup in food and drinks.


These Dickinson's Witch Hazel Towelettes couldn't have come at a better time.  Heaven knows my face has been showing out.  My forehead broke out while I was down visiting my family and since I've been back home using these it's already starting to clear up some.  My pores are looking much better.  What I really like about these is that they're perfect for on the go use.  (Wish I had of taken some with me).

They're individually wrapped.  So, you don't have to worry about any bottles coming open in your purse or suitcase.  They retail for about $5.99 for a 20-count box.  Totally worth the money in my opinion.


I've never been a part of the Splenda craze, but I have to admit that this Nectresse tastes pretty good.  I definitely prefer all-natural sweeteners if I can't get my hand on some pure cane sugar.  This stuff is the closest thing to tasting like cane sugar that I've tried yet.  And guess what?  It has zero calories!

Once again proof that healthy foods taste good too.   I'm not giving up my cane sugar for this but I am definitely open buying this once in a blue moon to sweeten up my smoothies.  Nectresse retails for $6.99 a container or $3.99 a 40-count box.


We all know about the importance of a good moisturizer.  And being a brown skin woman, it's really important that I use products that can help me from looking like somebody spilled their ashtray on my feet, knees, elbows and the backs of my shoulders.  Those are my problem areas when it comes to moisturizing.  I've talked about how I use the Vaseline Brand on my kids to keep their eczema at bay.

So, I wasn't expecting anything but good results from this Vaseline Spray & Go Moisturizer.  I liked it. I did have to reapply it but that's to be expected.  I'm a little heavy handed when it comes to sprays.  So, the $7.99 for 6.5 oz can price tag will makes you remember that less is more sometimes.  I would certainly buy it on the regular if I could find some nice fruit scents and had a coupon though.


Growing up my mom always purchased Crest toothpaste.  I went off to college, met husband and he got me hooked on Colgate products.  Colgate has been hands down better than Crest for me.  Y'all know I'm about that coffee life and well coffee isn't so good teeth because it can stain.  Using the Optic White Regimen, I don't have to worry so much about drinking coffee a few times a week.

I love that you can feel the mouthwash tingling and foaming a little when you rinse.  Kind of reminds me of the Pop Rocks candy.  You can feel it working. And speaking of working, brushing and rinse twice a day you'll see whiter teeth in as little as five days!  Can't beat that.  All of these products retail for $2.99.

 Thanks again to Influenster for the goods!  As always, all opinions expressed are 100% my own!
