I use the rosewater & glycerin spray, and I love what it does for my skin. The fine mist does a great job of moisturizing and hydrating my skin naturally without a bunch of added chemicals like in many commercial products. It smells great, too! It's refreshing, moisturizing, and my skin feels divine. I mist it on my face after washing, and sometimes on my body as well. This stuff is fantastic!
I was pleasantly surprised by this powder! I purchased it after reading multiple reviews, and thus far I am enjoying it. I have combination skin and was initially concerned about the little flecks of shimmer accentuating my pores and making me look too shimmery, but they add a subtle glow that enhances my skin. It really gives a flawless look, and has decent coverage for me -- I don't use foundation and I think this works alone as a primer, foundation, and finishing powder. It doesn't keep the oilies completely at bay for hours on end (for me), but does a decent job of making me look glowy without being shiny. The Skin Deep database gives it a decent rating regarding its ingredients, and that makes me happy.
I've been a fan of belVita's original crunchy breakfast biscuits for some time now -- especially the Chocolate (tastes like Chocolate Teddy Grahams!) and Cinnamon Brown Sugar. I've also recently tried the Soft Baked Biscuit in the Oats & Chocolate flavor, and to be honest I wasn't too crazy about it. It's not terrible, but just not my cup of tea.
Still, I was excited to try the Mixed Berry flavor that I received in my Influenster MamaVoxBox. And apparently, so were my husband and son. While they munched most of it, I managed to get a bite and was quite impressed! I'm glad I wasn't too quick to write off the Soft Baked Biscuits because the combination of blueberries and raspberries added a delicious sweetness to the soft and crumbly texture of the Soft Baked Biscuit.
I also liked that the Soft Baked Biscuits had 5 grams of fiber, 3 grams of protein, and 4 monounsaturated fat (a good fat!). Both the original crunchy and the soft baked belVita biscuits have come in so handy in the mornings while I'm tending to my baby boy and I don't always have time for a breakfast until I've gotten him fed.
I tend to prefer cookies and treats to be soft, like chewy chocolate chip cookies and brownies, but in this case I prefer the crunchy texture of the original belVita biscuits over the soft baked texture -- I can't get enough of those Chocolate treats -- though I would purchase the Soft Baked in the Mixed Berry flavor again.
Thanks to belVita and Influenster for giving me and my family the opportunity to try this new flavor and texture! Disclosure: I received belVita Soft Baked Breakfast Biscuits complimentary from Influenster on behalf of belVita.
I was thrilled to try POND'S Luminous Finish BB+ in my #MamaVoxBox from Influenster, after hearing rave reviews about it being a great BB cream for those with oily or combination skin, wanting a matte finish. Most BB creams seem to cater to those with drier skin, and leave a greasy, oily mess on other skin types.
My skin tone is fairly even, but my cheeks can sometimes get a little ruddy, and this BB cream easily evened them out. There are no visible sparkles or shimmer, just smooth, even skin. It applies creamy and non-greasy with a matte finish, and there's no filmy residue. There is a slightly floral fragrance for those who are sensitive to fragranced products, but it's not too overwhelming and seems to dissipate quickly.
I'm more of a fan of natural products and this has a medium rating on the Skin Deep website due to a few ingredients that could be harmful to skin. That said, it's better than a lot of other similar products out there!
All in all, it's a keeper!
