I received this jar of sauce for free in my Classico Organics VoxBox in exchange for my honest review.
I enjoyed this sauce a lot. I’ve had a few tomato & basil sauces that were unfortunately lacking in the basil department and tasted not much different from any other sauce. I could actually taste the basil in this one. I love that as I love basil and tend to add it as a sauce seasoning. I didn’t do anything fancy to use it...just added it to spaghetti since I really wanted to focus on the flavor of the sauce. But I feel that more prominent basil flavor allows for the sauce to be used for more than just pasta. Perhaps add it to stew. Or marinate and cook some chicken in it. The only thing I didn’t like were the tomato chunks. But that’s a personal preference as I don’t like chunky cooked tomatoes. Other than that, I really enjoyed this sauce!
I love this primer! As I have gotten older I have noticed that a lot of foundations have caused my skin to break out more. Tinted moisturizers have a similar effect. I tried this out and the store and decided to chance buying a tube of it. I'm so glad I did. I love that there is a very slight tint to it and it provides just enough of a "shimmer" to look more like an internal glow. I pretty much have abandoned foundation in favor of this. All I add is some blush and mascara and I have a natural look that allows my skin to actually breathe. It's super lightweight, not at all greasy, and keeps my blush looking great all day (as in I put my makeup on at 6:30am for work and it's still all there at 10pm when I'm taking it off). Remember it's a primer, so a little bit goes a long way.
This is hands down the best mascara I have ever used. I can't tell you how much money I have wasted on so-called great mascara....some that worked okay on me and cheap drug store ones that people swear by but are worthless on me. After reading some reviews, I finally splurged and purchased this one and it has been worth every penny. For some reason Influenster has my profile set to show my eyelashes as full, which they really aren't...they're thin and aren't that noticeable without mascara (I've also been unable to change it). My lashes look full and long with this mascara, even appearing as though I've curled them ahead of time which I practically never do. They make my eyes look awake and they really pop without even needing eyeliner or eyeshadow. In addition, it lasts a long time. I do my makeup around 6:30am for work and it still looks fantastic when I am taking off my makeup around 10pm at night. It doesn't smudge, flake, or anything. Never again will I waste my money on any other mascara...this is my holy grail.
I really don't get all the high reviews for this at all. This was such a waste of money for me. This mascara leaves my eyelashes barely more noticeable than not using mascara at all. It takes MANY coats before it even gives a hint of the so-called volume it claims. I now only use it when I'm only wearing tinted moisturizer (and no other makeup), but it is otherwise completely ignored when I go for a made up look. Never again will I purchase this.
This is one of my favorite workout DVDs. Using yoga poses, some modifications and speeding up are done in order to get your heartrate up to transform it into an aerobic exercise so you can burn those calories. It is pretty intense even for the first level. There are three women (Jillian included) demonstrating beginner, intermediate, and advanced moves. Combining the aerobic with the yoga allows me to burn calories, keep in shape, and build up my flexibility in a way that only yoga can do. I use this during my "off days" from running so that I'm still getting in a good workout. I highly recommend this one.
I'm so disappointed with CoverGirl makeup lately. I bought this eyeliner in espresso because it happened to be the only one in a brownish color that was at the store at the time and I needed one. The application of it is smooth and easy, which I liked. And that's about all I liked. Want to smudge it? Good luck getting that perfect look without taking it completely off, because that's how easy it comes off. Just one small touch and it's gone. So forget the smudging. In addition, it never lasts. I get that sometimes you need to reapply makeup during the day, but I shouldn't have to reapply my eyeliner only an hour or so after putting it on...sometimes even sooner than that. It's extremely disappointing. After a small string of bad quality makeup from CoverGirl, it'll take a miracle product from them to convince me they are worth spending money on again.
No. Just no. I have not experienced a worse mascara. Ok so I knew going into this that the whole "falsie effect" was an exaggeration, but I was hoping for volume. It gave volume, I'll give you that. And it made my lashes noticeable...but in a very bad way. Ths mascara is unbelievably clumpy, which just looks awful. No matter how little of it I put on, it's not long before it is flaking REALLY bad on my face. Seriously, I've never seen mascara flake so bad. I'm just glad it was cheap so I didn't waste much money on it. Unfortunately, it was also cheap in quality. Never again.
I was really hoping to love this but it wound up being really disappointing. The brush is probably the only thing I like about it because the bristles are designed in a way that it separates my lashes well. But that's as far as my praises go. First, the formula smells really weird. Fortunately that only lasts as you're putting it on and is done once you close the bottle. It can be clumpy, which is never a good thing. It is not long lasting at all. Within a couple hours, you'd never know I even had it on. Volume just isn't there. I would have to DRASTICALLY layer it to get any hint of volume. I've used CoverGirl mascara before, and actually have another bottle of a different formula in my makeup bag that works so much better. This was just poor all around. If I could combine the brush of this one with the formula of the other one, I'd be much happier. But as it is, I doubt I will finish this bottle and I certainly won't be buying it again.
This swing has been working pretty well for my son, who is currently 3.5 months old. I love that there are multiple sound settings ranging from musical medleys to nature sounds, as well as different swing strengths. I use the plug so that I never have to worry about going through batteries and dealing with that added expense; this was a specific requirement I had when searching for baby swings.
As my baby has gotten bigger, it does take a couple moments before the swing gets to where it needs to be. I do understand the physics of that - a heavier object will require more momentum. Still, it can be a bit frustrating. But for its cost, the fact I can plug it in, and different swing and sound options, it's a good swing. My son enjoys snuggling in it with his blanket for his shorter naps as well as for some quiet time.
