Sensible Portions Review


I will be reviewing the above 3 products. They are from Sensible Portions. I won the chance to try these as part of Sensible Portions' Social Toaster Ambassador program. I am not being paid by anyone to review these and the review is all my own opinions on the products.


These are the Garden Veggies Straws with Sea Salt. To me they do not have much flavor to them, are very plain and smell like plain potato chips. They even taste more like plain chips and in a way like french fries. They have a texture similar to fried pork skins. I do think they taste good and would be better with some dip, such as french onion dip. They are not too salty and sometimes I feel a little burn from other chips(maybe from salt?) but did not from these. I really can't describe the "burn" but it's usually around the lips. I even gave one to one of my dogs and they enjoyed the one I gave them lol.


These are the Cinnamon Apple Straws. I forgot to take a picture of the inside of the bag but I did take a picture of what they look like. They look just like the rest do,like fried pork skins. They smell really sweet and taste more like cinnamon in my opinion. They have a very sweet taste and reminded me a cinnamon stick s.We have a taco place similar to Taco Bell called Taco Casa. They have something called "Sopapias" and these really reminded me of them. I didn't really care too much for these but my nephew and his friends(which are around 20 years old) loved them.


These are the Zesty Ranch Garden Veggie Straws. They have a very strong scent unlike the Sea Salt Veggie Straws. Just like the other two, they have the fried pork skin texture as well. They taste good to me and I preferred them over the Sea Salt. In my opinion they are similar to Sour Cream and Onion chips. The dogs even liked these ones as well.

Overall I enjoyed trying all 3 products and I do think they all taste good for being snacks that are suppose to be healthier for you.

Air Heads Bites Review

 



I meant to do this review(along with others) a while ago and I did try these a while ago but had wrote down the review. I just been busy a lot and haven't had the time to post the review up.

A few months ago I received a message from Air Heads on twitter asking me if I was interested in trying their new candy. As a fan of Air Heads of course I was down to try their new candy so I replied back and told them I was interested and would even do a review for them even though it wasn't required. They were just wanting their fans to try their new candy.

Well as you can see in the first few pictures it came with a balloon and 3 different candies to try. Not only was I able to try them but my mom and 3 year old nephew(who pretty much ate most of the candy, lol). The Xtremes Bites my younger sister also was able to try those but the others were already gone.


Air Heads Xtremes Bites

I'm a fan of the regular Xtremes and these pretty much taste very similar to those. I wish I had took pictures of what they look like but I didn't think about it at the time. The only big difference is these are a little thicker than if you were to cut the regular Xtremes into small pieces. I also found them chewier as well. I found the bag to be a great size and it lasted a while. My mom, sister, and nephew also loved them as well.



I'm going to review these in the same because they are pretty much the same thing just different flavors. They are like little balls(again I should've took a picture) and full of flavor. Just like Air Heads are full of flavor and fruity, these are too. My nephew really loved them more than anything. My mom said she liked them because she could actually eat them with her "bad teeth" as she's always saying. I liked pretty much all the flavors that came in both as so did my mom and nephew. In my opinion this would be perfect to put in stockings or Easter baskets. I even see it being sold as movie theater candy.

I have yet to see them in stores where I live but I have came across the Berry and Fruit on Amazon both for around $21 each and you get 24 packs.

I wish I could add more to the review such as pictures of the actual candy but at the time I didn't even think to take any. All I have to say is it's worth trying all 3 yourself if you're a fan of Air Heads. My mom, nephew, sister, and I had no complaints and we wish we had more. They are full of flavor and looking at the price on Amazon for 24 packs about the average price for candy. I would definitely recommend them to anyone especially kids and kids at heart.

Redbox Instant Review

I'm a BzzAgent and most recent campaign was to try out Redbox Instant. Now anyone can try it for 1 month free, you don't have to be a member of any site to take advantage of the free 1 month trial. You can just go to their homepage to SIGN UP for it.

I've been a fan of Redbox for a while and although I personally have never had an account with Netflix, I have used family members' and friends' accounts and I definitely have been interested in a streaming service. I was very excited to find out Redbox was coming out with their own similar service and I had pretty good expectations for it.

It's only $8 a month which is pretty cheap. You are able to stream movies online and from various devices. I streamed from both my laptop and iPhone 4 with hardly any problems. The only problem I really encountered was on my iPhone and it would just randomly pause during the movie but when I returned to my movie, it was still in the same spot. Also with the ability to stream for various devices you receive 4 DVD credits to use at a Redbox Kiosk. I definitely took advantage all of the credits and had no problems at all using them. I will warn you though that it will still take off the $1.20 or so from your card but once you return the movie, the money goes back on your card.

The movie selection to stream online is ok but could use improvements. There are few newer releases like The Hunger Games but not many. I couldn't even find some popular movies from years ago which was a little disappointing but some of these also can't be found on competitors sites either. I do think if Redbox put more new releases and older box-office hits, they would definitely give Netflix a run for their money. Also they should add t.v. shows at least if they for some reason can't stream the movies people actually would love to stream from such a service. They do have new releases you can stream but at prices like $4.99 I don't think it's worth it when it's cheaper at the kiosk. It may be easier to rent online but if you're like me you try to save money as much as possible and you don't want to pay anywhere near $5 unless it's going to be a great movie.

Overall I did like Redbox Instant but at the moment I just don't see myself continuing a subscription service with them. Until they add more movies or t.v. shows to their library, if I'm going to pay for any streaming service, I'm probably going to go with Netflix. Even though the 4 DVD credits a month are nice, they alone won't make me want to pay for this service. Now make any rental online the same as the kiosk and you may have yourself a lifetime customer and I'm sure others would take advantage of it too.

DISCLOSURE: I'm a member of BzzAgent and I'm not paid by BzzAgent, Redbox, or anyone to write this review. Thanks!

Crowdtap Cottonelle Sampe & Share


I just want to forewarn others who read this that this is a post about trying out toilet paper so there may be some that some may say is "tmi" and well as awkward as it may be for you to read, it's just as awkward for me to write about!

I received one 18 pack and two 4 pack of Cottonelle Clean Care Toilet Paper as well as 3 tubs of Cottonelle Fresh Care Flushable Wipes. The two 4 packs and 2 sets of wipes was for me to share with friends. I chose to share with my oldest sister and my youngest sister. My oldest sister lives with 3 adults one of which has 2 younger kids. My youngest sister lives with 2 adults. As for me I live with 4 adults but we always have people coming over especially my brother(who lives with us) who has 3 younger kids,one who is 3 and potty trained but still needs help with wiping. The reason I shared how many lived with those trying was to give others an idea of just who all would be able to try these wonderful products. Also the adults all vary in age from 19 to 53 but we do have visitors who are younger and older that did give their opinion as well.

My family usually sticks to Angel Soft but sometimes when we're low on money we will buy cheap store or off brand toilet paper. My dad is the type that doesn't really want to waste money trying something new but when this came in the mail, he was very willing to try it out since it was free. When it arrived my oldest sister was already there and she knew one pk and set of wipes was for her. I had to call my youngest sister to come get hers.

I really liked usually the toilet paper and wipes. The wipes made me feel really fresh and I noticed with the toilet paper,compared to what I've used before, I didn't feel the need to use a lot. I even had to blow my nose and didn't have to use a lot there either. Also with blowing my nose the paper didn't tear apart like I've had some do before. Most everyone that tried the toilet paper and wipes agreed it made them feel fresh. I did bring up that the wipes were safe to flush which is good especially when it comes to younger children who may not have learned you can't flush everything down the toilet.

Speaking of younger children I have to share my 3 year old nephew's response. He's potty trained but does still ask for help when it comes to wiping and well my mom as well as his mom still make sure he wiped well enough even if he doesn't ask for help. Before he went my mom showed him the wipes and the first words out of his mouth were "I don't want to use those,those are for babies." My mom explained to them that his Aunt Rae-Rae(what he calls me) got them and they were for adults,not babies. Well he used one and my mom asked him did he need toilet paper and he replied(referring to the wipes) "Why I'm already clean and it's already dried." My mom said it was just so cute and well the girl living with my sister, her kids are a little older but they loved the wipes as well.

I definitely have to agree with my nephew that when you use the wipes, it does dry quick. I know some say they don't want to use wipes because they don't want to feel wet, but I didn't feel this way at all. Also(and this is TMI) the wipes are perfect for that time of the month when you may not feel fresh at all. I know I always would use baby wipes if they were available during this time because I just didn't feel too clean using just toilet paper.

Product details include:

Toilet Paper:
  • 30% stronger
  • Sewer- and septic-safe
  • Fits standard holders

Wipes:

  • Flushable
  • Break up after flushing
  • Sewer- and septic-safe
  • Alcohol-free
  • OneTouch dispensing tub
  • Great for the entire family

Overall it was a great sample and share. I wish I would've taken pictures of my sisters and those who tried them but they were very busy and I wasn't at home when my nephew was there. I would've asked my mom to take pictures but I didn't know he was going to be there that day. You can find the toilet paper and wipes on Amazon or in various stores such as Walmart or Target. Prices vary but in my opinion they are pretty cheap. You can even find refills for the wipes as well.

Ready For Love Premiere Review(Spoiler Alert)


I watched the premiere for NBC's newest reality dating show Ready For Love. It was 2 hours long which I first want to say is a little long in my opinion. I'm also sure half of it is full of commercials. I will continue to watch the show until the end since I have a mission from Smiley360 but I honestly want to record it to fast forward through all the commercials. For a premiere I can understand maybe it being 2 hours a long but most premieres have more to show and this didn't. It was mostly nothing but filler.

I do like the idea of the show but I really don't see a huge difference between other dating shows. There are 3 guys and the premiere only featured one, Tim Lopez who is in the band white T's. However the next 2 guys will share a single episode. With each guy they get to choose from 3 different sets of 4 girls but only get to choose 3 of each set only based off what she tells them. I definitely like this aspect. So out of 12 possible girls, the guy ends up with 9 and still eliminates one at the end of the "dates." They also have 3 matchmakers, one matchmaker per set. When it comes to elimination rounds, the matchmakers pick one girl they think should go. Out of the 3 girls the matchmakers pick, the guy must choose one to get rid of. On premiere night, Tim picked one to save right away. Then him and the other two girls went down these "tubes" that remind me of the Hunger Games tubes so each girl can give him reason to why she should stay. He picks one and goes back up the tubes with the girl he chooses. That's basically the quick overview of the show, I'm pretty sure it will go the same way with the next 2 guys.

When it comes to reality shows, I think many are steering away from dating shows unless they are full of drama. The most dramatic part of this show I think would be the friend coming back for a chance at love. However she was the one he eliminated on the first night. Now based off the upcoming shows there does seem to be some drama occurring but I think he should've kept the "friend" but I understand it's his choice and we'll see how things go. I would like to see if there is anymore surprises like exes or friends that never got a chance with the next two guys. Based off the previews it looks like there may be.

I would just like to mention how many dating shows I've seen have been filled with beautiful women and men. This one seems no different. I would love to see a dating show with more average people and not model looking people. It would feel more "real" to me. Also where is the racial diversity? I completely understand maybe guys have a preference but you can't tell me every single guy on a dating show prefers Caucasian women the most. Now this one is more diverse than others but still I think it would be fair to even it out. I have friends from different ethnic backgrounds who watched this and this was the first thing they brought up. Also the guys all look white to me although one may be Hispanic but he's still light skin. I'm pretty sure other guys of different background than European want to be a reality show to find love.

Overall it's not too bad but I don't see it lasting to long. My opinion may change over time as I watch it more but so far it doesn't look good. I was following on Facebook and Twitter and seen a quite a few negative reviews. I just hope in the end these guys end up with girls that want them for them and not their money or looks but just in my honest opinion most dating shows seems like the girls only want the guy for that. I could be wrong but that's just what I think. I just don't see how you can be interested in someone that you really don't know except for what you may have seen on t.v.

Stay tune for a review after each episode, at least I'm going to try to review after each one. I'm sure the others won't be as long since I won't have to describe the show to any readers that may not know.

If you're interested you can check on Ready For Love on the main website, the Facebook page or Twitter.

To join Smiley360 which introduced me to the show just go HERE to join. They have many missions where you can try out products. My last mission was for Campbell's Go Soup. You can check out my review for it HERE.

Also subscribe to my blog for more reviews on products I have tried as well as websites I earn rewards on. Thanks for reading.


Campbells Go Soup


I was able to try Campbells Go Soup Moroccan Style Chicken with Chickpeas because I'm a member of Smiley360. I'm not getting paid by anyone to do this review. I actually should've done this a while back but just been busy so hope you like it.

Smiley360 let me try this "Go Soup" out. As you can see I was sent one soup, coupons (10 $2 off coupons) and mustache tattoos(as described on the mission page "fun item to use when sharing." I actually chose to try this particular flavor out but it wasn't a guaranteed I would get it but glad I did.

I'm not much of a soup person but on occasion will eat it. This was pretty good. It does have some spiciness to it which by the name one would probably assume it would. My dad also tried it and said "it wasn't too bad." The flavor may be a little strong for some but overall I loved the way it taste. I love when something actually has flavor to it. If you are a fan of things that are spicy, try this out for sure.

There's quite a bit in this one package but I don't eat a lot so for some it may not be enough. Since I haven't really tried to many soups I honestly cannot compare it to other soups. I will say though from the soups I have tried this was better. Sometimes soups in a can taste like they came from a can. I want soup that tastes homemade or from a restaurant and I feel this did. I could smell it while cooking and it tastes just as good as it smells.

It's easy to cook, you just open the pouch a little and stick it in the microwave. However you can choose to cook on the stove as well. Because it's in this pouch, it would be much easier to put in a lunch. Just have access to a microwave and a bowl and spoon and you're set.

Other flavors of Go Soup include:

  • Golden Lentil with Madras Curry
  • Creamy Red Pepper with Smoked Gouda
  • Coconut Curry with Chicken and Shitake Mushrooms
  • Chicken & Quinoa with Poblano Chilies
  • Spicy Chorizo and Pulled Chicken with Black Beans
Make sure to check out their Facebook and website for more information as well as coupons and other deals. You can also check out their website for nutrional information. You can find this soup along with the other flavors on Amazon for $3.51 and shipping is free on orders over $25. A pack of 8 on Amazon would be $28.19. You can also find it in stores like Walmart and I have seen it in a few grocery stores but I would check since availability may vary. I also suggest looking on Google or Bing through their "Shopping" tab.

Garnier Fructis Triple Nutrition Miracle Dry Oil


I'm a BzzAgent and from time to time I get to try out products. Today I'm doing a review for Garnier Fructis Triple Nutrition Miracle Dry Oil. I am not getting paid to do this review and purely doing it to help others know more about this product.

This is for not only your hair but also your face and skin in general. I tried it with all three and had great results with all of them. It made my hair really soft. It left it looking shiny but not greasy. I do recommend using in moderation as I'm sure if you were to use too much, it would look greasy. As for my face and skin, it left it really soft. Even with my skin there was no greasy feeling there either. It also smells great in my opinion. Overall I had a great experience with it and would recommend anyone wanting softer hair and skin to try it out.

You can find it at many mass retailers both in store and online such as Amazon for anywhere from $5-$11 depending on where you buy it.

Ingredients include:

Isopropyl Palmitate, Octyldodecanol, Isopropyl Myristate, Isododecane, Olea Europaea (Olive) Fruit Oil, Sesamum Indicum (Sesame) Seed Oil, Persea Gratissima (Avocado) Oil, Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis (Sweet Almond) Oil, Prunus Armeniaca (Apricot) Kernel Oil, Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea) Butter, Fragrance, Tocopheryl Acetate, Benzyl Salicylate, Limonene, Citrus Aurantium Dulcis (Orange) Peel Oil, Benzyl Alcohol, Linalool, Citronellol, Isoeugenol, Hydroxycitronellal, Geraniol

Not Your Mother's® She's a Tease


I received Not Your Mother's She's a Tease Volumizing Hairspray complimentary from Influenster in my SweetHeart VoxBox. As you can see from the picture it's a 2oz bottle and infused with Apple Blossom and Bamboo. I love the way the bottle looks even though mine looks like it may have been used. I think it's very colorful. I could smell the scent before even spraying it as well. 

After using this a while I would have to say it's not too bad. I didn't mind the scent at all but I swear I could smell it when washing my hair out in the shower. It holds up hair pretty well but I would say other brands are better from my experience but I also have long, thick hair that takes a lot of product to use and even then I've yet to find any product that works good and holds up all day with my hair. It worked great for my sister though who has thin & medium length hair. She agreed that it smells pretty good and isn't your average smell for hairsprays. The scent I would say is definitely "not your mother's."

I love how it didn't leave my hair too stiff or sticky feeling but was working still. I hate how many products,even if you use a little, will leave your hair stiff and/or sticky feeling. They also are hard to rinse out but this wasn't. I actually slept in it and by morning it felt as if I didn't even wear hairspray the night before. This has never happened to me before as usually my hair is still stiff the next day.

I would recommend the product to others. You can find it at places such as CVS, Target, Walmart or ULTA Beauty for about $6.00 for a full size bottle( 8 oz). I also have seen it on Amazon as well.

Ingredients include:

SD alcohol 40-B, hydrofluorocarbon 152A, butyl ester of PVM/MA copolymer, PEG/PPG-17/18 dimethicone, aminomethyl propanol, phenyl trimethicone, pyrus malus (apple) fruit extract, saccharum officinarum (sugar cane) extract, trifolium pratense (clover) flower extract, honey extract, bambusa vulgaris leaf extract, panthenol, water (aqua), propylene glycol, tocopheryl acetate, benzophenone-4, fragrance (parfum).

You can check out other Not Your Mother's products on their main website and also check out their Facebook and Twitter page. Also check out the She's a Tease product page on Influenster with more information and other member reviews.

Secret Clinical Strength Stress Response


Influenster included Secret Clinical Strength Stress Response Antiperspirant/Deodorant as a complimentary product in my SweetHeartVoxBox. I was excited to try it because I have a huge problem with sweating a lot. I have tried many products but have yet to find any that even come close to helping me from not ruining my shirts. I can even sit around doing nothing in Winter and still sweat. This is definitely something I stress over because who wants to walk around with sweat stains especially a young woman like myself? I'll be starting at a university to get my bachelors soon and that alone will be stressful enough. I don't need to stress over something as simple as sweat showing on my clothes. 

So I did as the instructions state to do which is to apply 2 clicks(some may only need to use 1) at bedtime so it can work while you sleep. The reason for doing so is because at night your body's temperature and sweat rate slow. It says you can apply in the morning but you will get optimal performance by doing so at night. For maximum protection you can also apply a light layer in the morning if you feel you need it. 

As I said earlier, I sweat a lot so I was hoping this would work where I was happy enough to go out in public with no worries. I will say that the first day I was very excited because I went the whole day without sweating through my clothes. However the 2nd day, the temperature was much higher and it worked for most of the day but about 4 or 5, I noticed I was sweating but no where near as much as I usually do. Well since I've been using it on a daily basis, I have more days where I can last the entire day without leaving any sweat marks on my clothes and some of them have been warmer days. This is by far the best I've tried yet and I'm very happy it works even if not all the time. I would much rather have the smaller sweat marks it leaves than the big much more noticeable ones I'm used to dealing with.

The scent is good in my opinion but may be a little strong for some. I would love to see more scents available for sure. One thing I do want to bring up is the fact that it's so small. Other deodorants are much bigger while this one isn't. On top of the bottle itself being small only about half of it is full of the actual product and once you click the dial to make the product come out, you see just how little is inside. For the price which is  anywhere from $7.99 to $9.99 I don't find it to be decently priced at all. Below is a picture of before I click the dial and after to show just how much you get. The pictures on the left are before and the ones on the right are the after. 



Influenster Brand Page w/ reviews from Influenster members: http://www.influenster.com/review/secret-clinical-strength-stress-response

Product Page Website: http://www.secret.com/clinical-deodorant You can also view the FAQs on this page for any other questions you may have. They also have written and video reviews as well.

As stated above you can buy it for $7.99 to $9.99. Places you can buy it from include food, drug and mass retailers. If you're interested in buying now the PG E-Store has it for $7.99 and even gives you the option for $1.00.


Active Ingredient: Aluminum Zirconium Trichlorohydrex Gly Inactive Ingredients: Cyclopentasiloxane, Dimethicone, Tribehenin, Petrolatum, Cyclodextrin, C18-36 Acid Triglyceride, Fragrance, PPG-14 Butyl Ether

Overall I would recommend this product to those who sweat a lot to at least give it a try. It may not exactly be cheap but I think it's much better to buy something that cost more and works then something that won't. Especially if you're tired of ruining clothes like I am. I will continue using this and most likely will try other Clinical Strength products from Secret. 



Olay Fresh Effects


I receive a SweetHeartVoxBox complimentary from Influenster and in it was Olay Fresh Effects {Va-Va-Vivid!} Powered Contour Cleansing System with Olay Fresh Effects {Shine, Shine Go Away!} Shine Minimizing Cleanser. I'm a big fan of Olay products so I was really excited to try this out especially since it's for cleaning your face which I'm always looking for good facial products.

The first thing I noticed was the awesome box. I love the design of it and the colors. I think it would stand out on a shelf. I also like the design of the actual product and brush too. It's small enough to carry while traveling and doesn't take up much space at all on a counter.

Now on to actually using it. I was quite amazed at the power of this little battery operated brush. It's a little noisy as it does make a vibrating sound but at least it works and doesn't just make a noise! Since it's a triangle shape I was able to reach hard to reach places such as the sides of my nose. I also think it's perfectly shape for the T-zone area on your face. It doesn't take much product at all since it will lather up. I think using a brush like this is better than say your fingers since you can avoid putting the oils from your fingers on your face. Plus sometimes people can be a little rough and apply too much pressure using only their fingers. Also with the brush the only skin the product comes into contact with is your face! There was a little tingling sensation but not a lot that it was annoying, at least in my opinion! It smells great too.

It's very simple to use and doesn't take much time at all. The instructions as stated on the box says to splash your face with water ( I used a rag to do this and it worked great for me.) as well as the brush. After that squeeze the cleanser on the brush (make sure to not squeeze a lot since it lathers up) and turn it on. As with most other products you want to apply in gentle circles and do this for about a minute.Finally just rinse your face and the brush with cool water. The box says it's safe to use in a shower but not to submerge it in water. I always used it after taking a shower since my pores were opened up and with any product I use it after the shower & it seems I get the best results doing so.

Here are the ingredients of the cleanser:
Water, Glycerin, Myristic Acid, Stearic Acid, Palmitic Acid, Sodium Lauroyl Sarcosinate, Potassium Hydroxide, Lauric Acid, Polyquaternium 10, Fragrance, DMDM Hydantoin, Tetrasodium Etidronate, Iodopropynyl Butylcarbamate, Kaolin, Pentasodium Pentetate, Niacinamide, Hamamelis Virginiana (Witch Hazel) Extract, Iron Oxides

Posted below is me using the product. Also you can check out my Vine video too: https://vine.co/v/bHZnwwp0utt



You can buy on Amazon for $11.19 (normally $12.07) and shipping is free for any orders over $25. As you can see on there, there are many 5 star reviews. You can also find other places to buy such as Target and Walmart by going to their main page here. You can buy the cleanser ( 5 oz.) separate for $6.50 right now on Amazon, which is a deal since it's normally $9.99.

Skinnygirl Daily On-The-Go Bars


I was able to try a Skinnygirl Daily On-The-Go bar from Influenster in my SweetHeartVoxBox. I received Banana Oatmeal Dark Chocolate as you can see in the picture above. The first thing I will say about this bar is that is tastes great! I could definitely taste the banana in it but it wasn't too strongly flavored banana as the dark chocoate and granola does counteract it as well. I think this is a great combination of flavors and I will be buying more in the future since I loved the way it tasted. Also while eating the bar it didn't make a mess. There were no crumbs to clean up like I have had to do with other granola bars.

I have tried other granola bars which the ones I'm sure that come to mind are those from Quaker and Sunbelt. Now in my opinion these are definitely better taste-wise than Quaker but I will say they do compete with Sunbelt. I have always been a big fan of Sunbelt's granola bars. If you look at calories though Skinnygirl bars are 180 calories, Quaker varies but I usually get the Chocolate Chip ones and they are 100. Even the ones Quaker has that are dipped in chocolate are less at 140 calories. Quaker even has some with as low as 90 calories. Looking at Sunbelt, their chocolate chip one is 140 calories and their fudge dipped ones are 150. So as you can see when it comes to the calories, their competition does have them beat.Now I didn't look into other nutrional facts but you can always do a quick google search on your favorite bar and compare it to Skinnygirl Daily On-The-Go bars to compare on your own.

I also took a look at the prices on Amazon as I felt this was a good comparision but of course you can look around yourself. For $12.79 you can get 5 Skinnygirl On-The-Go bars; for $18.95 you can get a variety pack of 48 Quacker granola bars; and for $20.30 you can 3 packs of 10 bars(30 in total) of Sunbelt granola bars. Now I have seem better prices for both Quaker and Sunbelt in Walmart and other stores but as for Skinnygirl I have not noticed them in stores to compare.

Overall my impression of them is very good. They taste great and are less messy as well. As for how much healthier they are to other similar products, I think they need to work on that. Plus for the price they aren't too cheap compared to others as well.

Glade Expressions Review




I received 2 coupons to get a FREE Glade Expressions Fragrance Mist Starter Kit and also a Glade Expressions Oil Diffuser Starter Kit. I also received 10 $2.00 off coupons for the fragrance mist and 10 $4.00 off coupons for the oil diffuser. I had a hard time finding these products as most only carried the fragrance mist and not the oil diffuser. Also if a store did carry either one, the price was more than the coupon worth making it not free. I eventually found them at Walmart and luckily there was some left as the shelf was near empty. I was a little upset I only had one choice of scent for either product but I didn't feel like going to another Walmart or more stores. All I end up paying for was the tax.

Here is a picture of the scents I chose to purchase.


As you can see for the oil diffuser I chose the pineapple and mangosteen and for the fragrance mist I chose cotton and italian mandarin. Both scents smell wonderful and neither is too strong. I really like the pineapple one and was thinking it would be heavily scented like pineapple but it wasn't. The cotton fragrance mist just smells really fresh.  The oil diffuser was easy to put together and I just love the design of it. The fragrance mist is also easy to use and I love that you can keep the container and just buy a refill. I definitely plan to try out other scents for both products and have been telling many friends how great they are.

Glade has always been a favorite brand for me and have never let me down before. Once again I am impressed with these wonderful products. It's nice to go into a room that smells great and not be very overbearing as I find some air freshener products to be.

Check out Glade on their website and facebook.

The Taste: Tuesday at 8|7c on ABC

I'm somewhat of a fan of cooking shows so when I heard about The Taste I had to check it out. I will say it was pretty interesting and I do like the idea they only have an hour to cook up something good. I don't think I could cook up anything good with only an hour except for maybe a box cake, lol.

I also really like the blind taste test. This is different from other shows and I think it helps to avoid any favoritism as I do see happening often. The contestants range in skill and due to the show having this blind taste test, some of the contestants could be their own team members.

I recommend everyone to check out the latest episode here-> http://abc.tv/Z3jimp.Even though I haven't seen all I do plan on and I may do a better review afterwards!

Thanks so ,much Influenster for telling me about this new and interesting show. For anyone wondering about Influenster, I'm a member of this site and get to try out products that I do reviews on. It's very fun and I do suggest you check it out!

Head and Shoulders Damage Rescue Shampoo and Conditioner Review


Thanks to Influenster, which I am a proud member of, I was chosen to try Head and Shoulders Damage Rescue Shampoo and Conditioner. I am not paid to try or review any products from Influenster. I'm doing this review as a choice to let others know my experience with the product.

Now even before trying this particular Head and Shoulders, I'm very familiar with their products and have always had great results. This one didn't let me down either. I've always had dandruff ever since I was a kid but Head and Shoulders is always there for me. It has always worked to get rid of the flakes and not cause me to itch from a dry scalp.

Besides this one working well for my dandruff it also does help with the damage I have caused by blow drying and flat-ironing my hair. I have noticed my hair looks healthy and not so dull. I do try to keep my hair healthy but during Winter I blow dry my hair a lot to avoid walking around with wet hair since it takes forever to dry. I even think my hair thicker more close to the ends. I have thick hair to begin with but normally it's not so thick near the ends but after using this it seems to help even that. I'm sure once I get the dead end cuts off my hair will be really great.

Overall I'm very satisfied with the results and I will continue to use this product. This may even be my new favorite Head and Shoulders not only because of the results but it's also the best smelling so far. Thanks Influenster and Head and Shoulders for the chance to try out this product.
