EBOOST, for natural, long-lasting energy!

There are a zillion and one energy products out there on the market. But EBOOST is one of the few that boasts natural ingredients that provide a LASTING energy boost. I was always wary of energy drinks and supplements – I never knew exactly what was in them and I completely dreaded the crash that inevitably followed.

I actually have tried EBOOST before and the taste was alright – it was the orange one, and while I appreciated the boost of energy I just couldn’t imagine drinking it every time I needed some energy. Luckily in the Holiday VoxBox from Influenster I had a chance to try the Pink Lemondade version. The pink lemonade has a far better flavor – and if you’ve had energy drinks before then you know how hard it is to find an energy drink that tastes drinkable let alone good. I should warn you, it does have a bitter aftertaste, it doesn’t last long at all, but really just tastes like orange rind.

The packet advises that you mix it in with 12oz of water. Initially I mixed it with 12 oz, using the mason jars I bought (thanks Pinterest!) but ended up moving it to a larger pitcher because it was a little too sweet for my tastes and I wanted to add some more water. So personally, I’d mix it with like 20oz of ice cold water. It fizzes up like soda in the beginning, but then dies down a bit and tastes only subtly carbonated.

I would definitely recommend EBOOST to athletes, people who exercise- like when you need a boost before starting your cardio routine at home, and definitely students. I know I have a super full semester this Spring and I’ll definitely be needing an extra boost. I used my EBOOST when I had to pull an all-nighter and it keep me feeling awake enough that I powered through the night. But what I love most about EBOOST is that it gives you natural energy that lasts and contains vitamins and super nutrients like Vitamin C,  Vitamin D, and B-12! That to me is definitely a winning formula!

Naturals VoxBox 2012!

Hey guys! I’m super excited- there are so many great things going on over here on The NYC Talon, and I’m so thrilled to be able to share them with you! First off, I’m having an amazing pinterest-themed giveaway for a $225 Hype crossbody bag right now – so if you haven’t entered then please do. Secondly, next month is my birthday month and so I’ll be spreading the joy will my amazing readers with a super special giveaway worth over $150! So stay tuned! And my last bit of exciting news is that I was one of the lucky influensters chosen to receive the Naturals VoxBox! Woo hoo!

I joined influenster less than a year ago, and I absolutely love the brand-consumer relationship that influenster promotes. My first VoxBox had been the Love VoxBox – which I did indeed love (and you can read all about my box, and what Influenster is here). So when I found out I had been selected to receive the Natruals VoxBox I was pretty darn excited! Anyways, without further delay here are the products that were in my Naturals VoxBox 2012:

The Original Dish Drying Mat ($4.99; Bed, Bath & Beyond)

I really loved this mat. I know a lot of people will be using it for their dishes- and I totally will too – but I can’t get over how great this works for drying makeup brushes! This mat is a perfect flat, clean, breathable, fast-absorbing surface (it holds more than 4x its weight in water) – that folds and stores super easily.

Lypsyl Intense Protection LypMoisturizer ($2.99)

I’ve always been a massive fan of Lypsyl. Their LypMoisturizer is my go-to winter chapstick, so I was happy to see an old favorite in the box.

EBOOST

EBOOST is daily health booster, that’s supposed to boost your mood, focus, and immunity with natural ingredients. It sounds really great (and tastes good too) as I do tend to get sick sometime during the fall and winter months. I can’t really give a completely thorough review as I only received one packet, but based on that – it’s a great health booster!

CleanWell Individual Hand Sanitizer Wipe

Sticking with the natural theme of this box, the CleanWell wipes are made up of all natural ingredients that are easy on the earth. These are really great because if you’re like me and have sensitive skin, and alcohol heavy wipes are a no-go, then these CleanWell wipes are right up your alley. They’re really mild (you can even use it on your face) – but work well enough to give a thorough clean.

GEODEO Natural Deodorant Plus Detox Complex 24hr Protection, in Island ($5.99)

I love a good deodorant. As somebody who takes public NYC transportation, I can fully appreciate the benefits of good deodorant (and the horrors of having to smell somebody’s lack thereof). GEODEO’s deodorant has a detox complex made out of volcanic minerals, and Icelandic algae that work to fight impurities. Vitamin E fights free radicals, bamboo and aloe nourish skin, and enzymes neutralize odors. Also, it smells really really good!

NECTRESSE

Made from monk fruit, Nectresse is a zero calorie sweetener that actually does taste like sugar! I used my sample packet on a bowl of strawberries- yum!

Country Life Maxi-Hair Maximized dietary supplements ($17.99 for 60 Tablets)

I haven’t run a complete scientific study on the benefits of these pills, but what I can tell you is that they are choc-full of vitamins, biotin, and MSM – which are all great to take if you’re looking to bring a little life back into your hair, nails, and skin. I can’t wait to see my long term results! What girl doesn’t want to give her skin, nails, and hair some nourishment?!

Altogether I was very happy with the Naturals VoxBox. There’s not a product in here that I wouldn’t get behind. I’m particularly excited about the Country Life pills, and the GEODEO! The drying mat and the Lypsyl are already being put to good use, and my samples of EBOOST, CleanWell, and NECTRESSE have all been used.
