I normally don't have protein bars... I actually prefer to do protein shakes before a workout but I often find that bars are so much easier to manage on the go so I've been experimenting with different brands and flavors to see what works for me. Although this is only the second bar I've tried since I started my venture I'm not exactly loving it, but it could just be because I'm not used to it?
This cookies and cream bar by Quest was too gritty for me and I also felt it was a little salty, mind you, I don't add extra salt to my food so I'm not used to that extra sodium kick. Also, I don't add sugar to my coffee and I'm not into sweets so I definitely wasn't expecting it to be too sweet either, but it just wasn't all that to be honest. Of course, I'm comparing it to another brand and flavor protein bar which was chewy and didn't have a salty after taste, but one thing I will say is: it gave me a boost of energy and kept me full enough to not feel hungry during an intense workout!
I have been buying these bars for over a year and I can honestly say that these are my favorite/ go to protein bars. There are so many different flavors so you are bound to find one that you love. They are super quick to eat, and give you long lasting energy before a workout and they're great to eat after one too! What I really love though is that they didn't sit in your stomach like a rock and make you feel crappy while you're exercising. Great products! The company has removed 25% of the sugar and they still taste really good! In my opinion, they were too sweet before, but now they are not to sweet but taste perfect! My favorite kinds are the lemon, chocolate peppermint, and chocolate cookie dough!!
I love this lotion. It comes in a small, convenient bottle that fits perfectly into my purse. I love the shape of the bottle because it is flat so it doesn't take up a lot of extra space. It is so nice to be able to carry lotion around with out any added bulk.
It smells great and keeps my hands feeling soft. It is not greasy which is a huge plus for me. I have a feeling it won't last long though because I tend to use it for more then just my hands. Especially now that the weather is hot and I'm wearing shorts more and more. I often forget to put lotion on my legs as I'm running out the door and this stuff has come to my rescue more then once!
Peach Belllini is just heavenly!! It is actually one of the ONLY scents where the candle, the hand soap (both foaming and the deep cleansing), the candles, the handibac bottles, and the wallflowers - ALL smell the exact same! If you LOVE fruity tropical scents, then Peach Bellini is one you NEED to try! I don't even like to eat peaches, but I am obsessed with this scent. It leaves your hands feeling so soft and smelling exceptionally yummy! I prefer foaming soap vs the deep cleansing, but I've tried this scent in both types because my fiancé prefers the deep cleansing ones. They work and smell the same; I just think the foaming is easier and faster to use. You definitely need to grab this 2 pack of you have the chance!
I am obsessed with sanitizing my hands and bath and body works is the only brand I use because I love the formula. The consistency of the product is quite thin, which allows it to soak in quickly and work to sanitize your hands from germs. The packaging is great, It comes in small tiny bottle with an optional that you can buy separately that hooks to your purse or wallet, that way you're never without sanitizer. Besides these works, bath and body works offers a wide variety of scents that are sure to suit jus about anyone's likes. I highly recommend these sanitizers because you can't beat when they're on sale for $5 for $5 and the great quality. I love knowing this product is working towards combating germs because having an autoimmune disease like lupus, you constantly have to be careful not to get sick.
Listerine cool mint is my go to mouthwash it is the only brand and flavor I will buy. Cool mint is a great flavor that makes my breath feel fresh and clean without a disgusting after taste. I have been using cool mint for years and I can always count on it to freshen my breath and to kill more germs than brushing alone. I use it morning and night and when I need a quick refresher so I can feel confident with my breath and smile. I can buy a big bottle for a pretty good price at Walmart so that is what I do and it is always cool mint. I can feel this clean my teeth and love every how it makes my mouth feel after using it.
Shaving toughens my skin as well as makes it dark. Waxing pulls the oils out making my skin dry. Using this product I noticed a change in both the appearance and feel of my armpits in just 10 days. Goes on clear, no messy build up and strong wetness protection. I really love this product and I am not switching to Dove Advanced Care!I love this deodorant. I use it on the daily and it keeps me smelling good all day and into the night. I also find that it doesn't leave any white spots on darker clothes which i saw in other deodorants i have used in the past. I will repurchase when i run out!I use the fresh powder sent and it smells so good ! I use to sweat a lot and found it embarrassing and this prevent too much of that. No Oder whats so ever it has a very clean smell . I didn't try the others because I don't care for fruity smells.I use dove advanced care, and I love it! I've tried many other deodorants but I always go back to dove. It keeps me the freshed, longest. I do A LOT of physical activity at work at dove holds up. My favorite scent is the cucumber!
I received this product as a free sample in the #trydry voxbox. I previously had been using Dove's solid antiperspirant and I was introduced to the concept of spray deodorant in the UK a few years ago so I was game to try it out. It took a little getting used to application-wise to make sure I was getting the distance right and not spraying from too close or too far away (I'm awful at estimating measurements) but once I got that down I could see where the "instant dry" claims came from. I could tell that it dried very quickly and I didn't seem to get much white residue on my clothes like I would with my usual stick deodorant, even if I applied it before I got dressed. I did see patches of white residue on my skin where I had sprayed it on though, so I'm not sure if that was just me overapplying or if that's just what this product does. The scent was fine and I thought it offered decent wetness and odor protection but I don't think it lives up to some of the claims. 48 hour odor and wetness protection were definitely not true. I don't think I even made it a full 24 hours before I could tell I was sweating, and if I tried to go a full 48 hours without reapplying there was definitely odor. I've been using it for close to a month now and I haven't noticed any changes in the condition of my skin, though I was already using Dove solid deodorant prior to this so I wouldn't say that fully debunks that claim. Overall I like the spray deodorant but I don't know if I would replace my usual stick deodorant permanently with it. I think I would use it on days that I'm in a hurry and maybe keep one in my gym bag to freshen up either before or after working out. #Dove #Target
This is an awesome product for anyone who worries about their breath or is an oral health freak (I'm the latter). I expected it to be much rougher but it's very gentle and almost tickles your tongue. It's very simple to use. This product scrapes odor causing food particles off my tongue, in hard to reach areas, and doesn't gag me in the process! I usually use my toothbrush to (attempt to) do this, but I used the tongue cleaner after brushing today. My tongue was much more clean after, than with the toothbrush alone. It's so incredible to feel the difference on your tongue -- it's like nothing I've experienced! I've been going through a diet change, which can cause bad breath, so I know I'll be using this product plenty in the upcoming months!
I received this product for free in exchange for my honest opinion.
