I am currently a stay-at-home mom to two of the most hilarious little people I know, and married to the man I fell in love with over a decade ago! While I have a Master's Degree in School Counseling and a Bachelor's in Psychology, and no, that does not mean I am analyzing everything you say or do. I keep myself busy as a review blogger, and spend the rest of my time being a coffee lover, makeup junkie, book worm and memory maker with my most important people.
Upon receiving my samples of the new Gain Botanicals Laundry detergent, I promptly bought the full-sizes versions of the samples. I love that brands are beginning to take a serious look at where their ingredients are coming from, and listening to consumers who are trying to lessen their environmental impact. I actually have the full size of both scents but prefer the orange blossom vanilla variety. They do a comparable job of cleaning clothes to any other laundry detergent I have ever used and my favorite thing about these detergents is that they are made from 65% plant based ingredients while also being free of dyes, phosphates, optical brighteners and MEA. The scent is pleasant and does not really linger on clothes like some fragrances detergents. If there was anything I would wish to change, it would be that a higher percent would be plant-based, and that the fragrances would be naturally derived from essential oils. Anytime I see fragrance as an ingredient all I think is chemicals!
Truly enjoying this product thus far! I really love the Tree Hut Shea Body Butter. Winter does brutal things to my skin, so I have to moisturize daily. I received a small sample of this is my Harvest Voxbox in the scent Coconut Lime. I think that this is more of a Summer scent, although it does help to drag away some of those winter blues. The formula is perfect because it is super thick and creamy, however, it absorbs quickly and leaves no greasy residue. I loved my sample so much that I bought 2 of the full-sized for my grandmother. The other scents available are amazing too!!!!!! They are extremely affordable at Walmart so I see another purchase for myself in the near future!!!!
Review for: Dr. Jart+ Water Drop Hydrating Moisturizer 3.3 oz more...
This is a super moisturizer if you are looking for something light and weightless. It almost feels like a primer when you put it on. I use this primarily in the Summer when I don’t need as much moisture on my skin.
My little one was super excited to see that there were Mott's Applesauce Pouches in my Charm Voxbox. These are the best for parents who want their kids to have a healthy, nutritious snack on the run, or even just at home. We have a snack basket on our pantry for the kids so when they want to grab a snack they can go there. We always buy Applesauce pouches that are the natural version with no added junk and keep them there as a healthy option. These are great for on the go snacking for kids and adults alike! I have been known to eat them too! My only suggestion would be for the brand to make a portion of the pouch transparent. There are many instances of mold in these kind of pouches, which seems to make sense, but if part of the pouch was see-through, that could be avoided altogether. Overall we love the Mott's pouches and will be using our coupon to purchase more at Target! Disclosure: I received this item complimentary for the purpose of review. The options stated here are entirely my own.
I need to start out by saying that I do like regular Peeps. I know there are a ton of people who absolutely despise them, but I am not one of those people. I am almost certain that those original Peep haters would actually enjoy the sophisticated flavors in the Peeps Delights. I was given the opportunity to try them for free in my Charm Voxbox from influenster. I must disclose that I only ate one because my children ate the other 2. But the one that I had was delicious! The coconut flavor was just right, not overpowering. And the dipped chocolate on the bottom was the perfect touch! I would absolutely recommend these to anyone, but especially those who have no loved Peeps in the past. This product may be just what you needed! I would definitely purchase these! Five stars all the way!
Thoroughly enjoying my Chapstick Naturals Lip Butters! They each have really unique "flavors", and I've been enjoying each one. I love the formula of these particular lip butters, and they are perfect for the impending cooler weather which will turn my already dry lips into the Sahara Desert. With ingredients like mango butter, avocado butter and shea butter, they deliver ample hydration that lasts. They come in these 3 flavors: Sweet Papaya, Green Tea Mint and Pink Grapefruit and claim to provide 8 hours of moisturization. I eat several times in an 8 hour period, so I could not accurately evaluate that claim, but I do not find myself feeling the need to re-apply very often. Overall, I would definitely recommend these! They are available in stores NOW! Thanks to Influenster for giving me the opportunity to try them for free! All opinions stated above are entirely my own.
I have been a long time lover of all things Annie's. I love their philosophy and that they give natural and organic food and snack options that are affordable for me to offer to my family. In the instance that I want to give my kids boxed macaroni and cheese I always make sure to have Annie's on hand. It has great flavor, cute pasta shapes and the kids honestly gobble it right up. I've been slightly weary since Kraft bought out Annie's, nonetheless, it is still natural and organic. The only difference I have noticed is using smaller amounts of products while still charging the same price which is a little shady in my opinion.
This is one of the perfumes that I have worn since I was in high school. I prefer citrusy and floral scents so the Clinique Happy and Clinique Happy Heart tend to be just up my alley. They are clean and fresh smelling, and are truly perfect for Summer as they are Summery scents. I do wear it year round though, and I always get compliments on it. I must note that I am EXTREMELY picky about the perfume that I wear, and have a very particular taste. I have a handful of perfumes that I will wear, and am always searching for new ones because I rarely find a perfume that I actually like.
My husband wears this cologne, and it is simply the best! It smells absolutely amazing, and now whenever I smell it, it reminds me of him. It has definitely becomes "his" scent. A big bottle will last him over a year. He uses a small amount, and it is enough to make him smell nice without it being over-powering or pungent. I would highly recommend this cologne if you are looking to purchase a scent for the men in your life!
