The flavor is not to intensely pumpkin spice. It's nice that the front pack of the bar tells you what to expect. I wasn't a huge fan of the whole nuts in the bar. The bar is pretty dense and chewy - definitely not something you can eat casually on the go - it's a chore to finish! Because it's so dense and chewy, you can't eat it as fast as you may be able to eat other protein bars, which helps me (at least) get more filled up faster than with other bars. The dates make the bar pretty high in sugar (for a 52g bar, it's got 14g of sugars), but the 5 grams of fiber and 12 grams of protein offset some of the guilt I get by eating a bar that's about 25% sugars.
Review for: Foreo LUNA(TM) 2 for Combination Skin more...
The Foreo Luna has been a fantastic device for washing my face - it helps deep clean without being irritating or scratchy. I definitely notice a huge improvement in my skin when I wash using the Luna compared to when I wash using my hands. I recommend this over the Clarisonic - while you have a higher upfront cost, you don't have to change the brush heads, and it stays much cleaner since it's made of silicone.
Purity Made Simple is a great makeup removing, gentle cleanser. I use it nightly to clean my makeup away. It's fairly gentle and does't cause me to have any reactions (bumps, pimples). The one reason I take off one star is because it has the tendency to irritate my eyes.
Great deal! This has three full-sized lipsticks in beautiful colors with lovely formulas. The mattes feel moisturizing while being comfortable matte colors, and the KISSING lipstick has a beautiful natural finish. These colors would be GREAT on any skin tone!
The most beautiful natural pink color! Moisturizing formula, pigmented product, smooth application. I purchased the set of all three "royal" formulas on the Charlotte Tilbury website and now I know why these lipsticks are cult favorites! Duchess is a gorgeous shade, perfect for work and everyday wear.
I love this lip and cheek gel SO much! The color is a perfect "my lips but better" color. The formula lasts even as the moisture/gel texture seems to wear away. The formula is comfortable on the lips and pigmented enough without being hard to apply. The crayon is soft and smooth against the lips and the formula doesn't tug at all. It's moisturizing without being sticky. The best lippie to throw in your pocket and apply without a mirror :)
Review for: Papa Don't Peach (spiced peach) more...
I love this lipgloss - it's beautifully pigmented without being too pigmented, has a sweet peach scent, and is glossy without being sticky. They are comfortable and decently longwearing, easy to find at Sephora and the Too Face Website, and have cute packaging. I give it one fewer star because I do feel like this lipgloss dries my lips out. It could potentially be an allergic reaction, or it could be causing my lips to chap. Potentially the high fragrance level is drying. But overall, super pretty, super nice lip gloss.
This is a phenomenal lip color. I purchased this because of hearing all the beauty gurus love it for its great price and longevity, and i was definitely not let down. Dreamer is a perfect "my lips but better" color for my skin tone. This liquid lip is unique in that it doesn't completely dry down, and it definitely transfers, but the color somehow stays put ALL. DAY. As in, I eat salads, pizzas, tacos, and I may have to touch up around the center of my mouth, but at the end of the work day, i can still have a good wash of color on my lips. This lipstick doesn't really dry my mouth out like other lipsticks, so I reach for it when I'm looking for something comfortable on my lips. It's a great formula for Winter, since it feels less drying than other mattes. This ink doesn't really wash off like a normal liquid lip does. After I remove my makeup and wash my face, it feels a little like a waxy residue is left over. Usually to counteract that sticky waxy feeling, I throw on a balm and go about my evening, and after a few minutes, the feeling goes away. I will definitely purchase more as the lip ink comes in a variety of different colors.
As with my review on the matching shampoo: Do you guys remember when Herbal Essences used to have those commercials of those gals in the shower? And the shampoo used to actually smell herbal? This Rosemary and Herbs brings me back to those late 90's early 00's Herbal Essences brand that I remember and loved. Seeing as this conditioner was supposed to foam, i was SUPER intrigued. How would a moussey conditioner help my hair that i love to drown in thick, rich, tubs of deep conditioner? I do like the scent of the conditioner. It's a little masculine, but it doesn't stick around for long after the shower. It smells clean and herbal. I use 1-2 squeezes of this mousse-y conditioner to cover my whole head. It comes out like Mousse or Shaving cream, and distributes pretty far. It doesn't feel like it's doing much - I'm used to deep conditioners that allow me to comb through my hair in the shower, but this doens't give the same feeling. It's super lightweight and I question whether or not the conditioner is actually conditioning my hair. I have medium thickness hair that is about chin length, isn't dyed, and sometimes feels dry. This conditioner doesn't feel super moisturizing, but does add moisture weightlessly. I liked it for my own hair, I made my boyfriend try it, and we even used it for my pupper's bath... It's the first bath I've given her where she doesn't smell like "wet dog" following a bath. For her luxurious bath, I paired the shampoo with this condiitoner, let it sit for a few minutes, and rinsed out. Her fur is super soft from it. I'll definitely use this until the bottle runs out and may end up purchasing another bottle for weightless moisture in the summer - I'm sure that i'll appreciate the light moisture much more in the more humid months.
I received this product for free as part of Influenster's VoxBox campaign - Herbal Essences:BioRenew, in exchange for an honest review.
