Brookside Dark Chocolate Crunchy Clusters Review

20150111_053321

I received the Brookside Dark Chocolate Crunchy Clusters free through Crowdtap in return for my honest and unbiased opinion!

I really do not care for dark chocolate. It is to bitter for me and like something sweeter.

So when I got the sample bag I almost didn’t try them. But I’m glad I did. The berry taste makes it sweet and with the crunch of the clusters it makes the snack different then others I have tried. I really like how the different textures mixed together perfectly! Crunchy, yet chewy at the same time! They were delicious!

The dark chocolate taste wasn’t so over powering that, that was all I could taste. I actually didn’t want to share once I tried them haha But I did and let my aunt and my son try them! My son grabbed the bag and took off to his room laughing an evil laugh haha but soon brought them back and we all enjoyed them together!

I really liked having them as a snack when drinking my coffee. It gave my coffee a tasty kick!

They are small little clusters but you don’t need to eat many to get your sweet tooth craving calmed. So if your dieting like I am, it’s a great treat to reward yourself!

Neutrogena® Rapid Dark Circle Repair Eye Cream Review

I was chosen through Crowdtap to try the new Neutrogena Rapid Dark Circle Repair Eye Cream free for my honest and unbiased opinion of the product.

20141230_150602

I was really excited to try this new product because I have a lot of issues with my under eyes. Not only do I have bags but I also tend to get dark circles, even when I sleep well.

20141230_150712 20141230_150737

I really liked how it had an applicator brush on the end of it so I didn’t have to use my fingers to apply. The pressure of your fingers actually makes the dark circles worse and can cause puffiness. So this feature was extremely important to me! And it’s easy to clean!

I have a lot of issues with the skin on my face. My face is very oily and blotchy. I was worried that this would irritate my skin. So when I first tried it I only put a very little amount under my eyes and waited. It was actually very soothing!

I have been using this product for a little over a week now and I have seen a subtle change in the dark circles under my eyes but not a whole lot. I think over time it will have a better effect so I will continue to use it and see what happens.

The directions for use state: Twist bottom of package until product appears on the brush (may take up to 10 twists the first time). Apply to eye area. Works well alone or under makeup.

20150107_100802 20150107_101808 20150107_101811 20150107_101815 20150107_101825

Directions to clean: Wipe brush with dry cloth or tissue. Do not get wet, or allow water to pass through brush.

If you would like to find out more about puffy eyes and why you get dark circles you can visit the Neutrogena page!

In using this product in such a short period of time it’s hard for me to say if I completely like it. It has diminished some of the darkness from my under eyes so it does appear to work. I will just have to continue using it to see the full effects! I guess it will depend on the price of the product, if I will continue to purchase.

Would I recommend this product? Sure! It has slowly been working. I just can’t seem to find out how much it will be to purchase this product.

Poise Microliners Review

20141225_181513

 

Who of you out there suffer from light bladder leakage (LBL)? I know that this may be a sensitive subject for many of you but I want to let you know that you are NOT alone.

As I got older and started having children I noticed that I wasn’t able to hold my bladder as well. And yes, I have a little leakage every now and again. It is a very embarrassing issue for me but I know that there are many women and even men out there who suffer just like I do.

I’m being open about the issue so that you don’t have to feel like you need to hide.  Did you know that over 45% of women suffer from light bladder leakage? I didn’t either until I did a little more research.

There are many causes for light bladder leakage such as stress, caffeine, obesity as well as many other triggers.

Many of you know that when you have children your body changes tremendously. After having three children of my own it’s hard to control things down under lol When I laugh to hard, or sneeze or even cough. Even when it’s close to “that time of the month” it’s hard for me to hold back.

So what can you do to help prevent accidents when your out and about? Well let me tell you that Poise has been a life saver for me!!! When I received the Poise Micro-liners I truly didn’t think they would work. They were so tiny lol How can something like this hold anything that might come out of me? I normally just use sanitary napkins which are thick and bulky and aren’t really made to catch anything other then what they are made for.

20141225_181430 20141225_183638 20141225_183646

 

The micro-liner Poise pads are specially designed with a material that catches little leaks! Poise calls it SAM (super absorbent material.) They also eliminate most of the odor. The first time I used these I actually took along an extra pair of pants just in case. But I didn’t need them! I was amazed at how well these little babies worked!

As embarrassing it is to have light bladder leakage, I no longer feel like I have to worry about accidents anymore! I feel confident every time I leave the house!

I shared my sample pack with my aunt, who also suffers from leakage. Yes she gave me permission to say that lol She liked them so much she went and purchased some more with the coupon enclosed in her sample!!!

I personally really liked the Poise Micro-liners because they are small and can fit discreetly in my purse and they work great! Would i recommend them? Absolutely!

Listerine Healthy White Mouthwash Review

IMG_20141213_125423

I received a bottle of Listerine Healthy White free through Crowdtap in return for my honest and unbiased opinion.

What i received:

1 LISTERINE® HEALTHYWHITE™ GENTLE Sodium Fluoride Anticavity Mouthrinse

Sharing guide

I have always loved the Listerine brand and this product lived up to my expectations of the brand!

It has the same great taste as the other Listerine products I have purchased but doesn’t have that “burn” effect on my mouth. I love that this is a whitening product because….well…everyone wants a brighter whiter smile with all the protective components like cavity fighting and fresh breath. So putting it all into one mouthwash is a great idea!

20141218_071345

I had never used this particular type of Listerine before but was not surprised that I liked it just as much as my other Listerine.

I have only been using it for a few days now and have not seen much of a result….I want to give it some more time! But my mouth feels great! It feels clean and fresh every time I use the Healthy White!

To me having a healthy, whiter smile, is important! I want to feel confident in talking to others and know that they are not thinking that I don’t take care of my mouth. It makes me feel better about myself and that is the most important thing!

The Listerine Healthy White gives me the confidence to know that I am doing everything possible in keeping my smile healthy, fresh and clean! Yes…I also brush and floss!

20141218_073029 20141218_073050

20141218_073243 20141218_073253

I highly recommend the Listerine Healthy White to others! This brand is all I purchase for mouthwash.

Here is my wonderful collection of the Listerine I use!!

20141218_073433

I absolutely love the Listerine products! I can’t say it enough! It’s a great way to keep your mouth healthy, clean and your breath fresh!

We had some great times making some of the great recipes shared in our little book! My son absolutely loved the Spaghetti O’s!

IMG_20141026_133018

He wouldn’t even share with his Momma! He said he would eat these every day for lunch if I would let him! They have always been a family favorite in our house and a classic growing up for me!

We next tried the Creamy Parmesan Chicken next!

IMG_20141027_145931 IMG_20141027_150003 IMG_20141027_150636 IMG_20141027_151136 IMG_20141027_152123 IMG_20141027_152532

I poured it over rice and it was amazingly good. There were not any leftovers for the next night! The entire family devoured it! It was definitely creamy and had a welcoming taste to it! A big keeper!

We then tried something different! We baked some biscuits and poured Campbell’s Beer and Cheese With Beef and Bacon chunky soup over them!!! It was fantastic! Although I think it needed a little more salt and pepper.

This, I think, is my husbands new favorite soup! Although he is not home at the moment, when I told him about the soup he went out and purchased some to try!

IMG_20141024_191142 20141216_172254

I made a casserole with the cream starter and was very impressed at how well it turned out! I used chicken as the protein not only because it’s a frugal choice but because that is what most of my family prefers!

IMG_20141109_155335 IMG_20141109_164740 IMG_20141109_170354 IMG_20141109_171758

Looks and tastes delicious!

I was sent a New Slow kettle Roasted Chicken Noodle soup and OMG! I have never tasted a better chicken noodle then this….well besides my own home made! It did, however, have a unique taste that I could never master!

IMG_20141213_151020

I even shared a few of my products with my auntie and have been telling everyone I talk to about the products I received. How amazing they taste and all the different things you can cook with them!

IMG_20141215_155256 IMG_20141215_155207

Here are some more things that we enjoyed during this great product review!

IMG_20141106_150124 IMG_20141106_150504 IMG_20141106_151513

IMG_20141203_165141 IMG_20141203_170812

IMG_20141213_151034

In all I would completely recommend the Campbell’s brand to everyone! Not only are there great things you can do with the products, but they taste fantastic!

I will definitely keep making memories with my family and with Campbell’s products!

Listerine UltraClean Mouthwash Review

I received a full size bottle of Listerine UltraClean Mouthwash free through Crowdtap in return for my honest and unbiased opinion of the product! All opinions are my own.

I have always loved the Listerine brand and that is what I currently use now. However, I had not tried the UltraClean one before now.

IMG_20141201_195729
#TheUltraCleanTeam

I was not surprised to find that I really liked this particular one just as much as I like the others I have used in the past! It left my mouth feeling very fresh and clean. The ultra clean did surprise me in the fact that it didn’t have that normal “burn” like the other Listerine products I have used.  So it made it easier to swish for the 30 seconds it recommends!!

It is “Cool”, which you can see in this awesome picture of my Listerine wearing sunglasses!! Fashionable right?!! Hold the applause please!!

IMG_20141204_073857
#UltraCool

So I’ve been using this for over a week now and I will definitely be adding it to the Listerine products I already use! I like to switch it up every now and then so I don’t get bored!

So here is some pictures of me with my awesome new ultra cool UltraClean Listerine!

IMG_20141201_195409  IMG_20141201_195437

IMG_20141201_195819
Swish Swish!

IMG_20141201_195754

I really felt like my mouth was cleaner and fresher and just as the other Listerine, The UltraClean fresh feeling lasted all day long!! It left my mouth feeling like it was squeaky clean!

Listerine products clean your mouth better then brushing alone. If your just brushing your teeth, you could be missing 75% of the nasty bacteria. So why wouldn’t you try Listerine? I use it and I totally recommend this product! I have and will continue to purchase!

Litter Genie System Review

I received a Litter Genie System free through Crowdtap in return for my honest and unbiased opinion!

IMG_20141118_190615 IMG_20141118_190720

I have heard a lot about the Litter genie from commercials and from Youtube videos but have never had a chance to try one before now, as they are not available in my area. Depending on where you purchase they can run anywhere from $15-$20 just for the system. Refill bags are sold separately and run anywhere from $9-$15.   I received the entire system that included 1 refill box, pail, and scoop.

IMG_20141118_190835 IMG_20141118_191012 IMG_20141118_191019 IMG_20141128_230754

I even personalized it for My cats!

I was very pleased at how easy the system was to put together and how easy it was to use.

The product promises that it will keep litter odors at bay for up to 14 days without emptying. It does as promised. It actually holds quite a bit of litter and keeps the odor from seeping out into your living space. I have been extremely pleased with what this product has provided for my household!

My cats came over and checked it out but unfortunately i didn’t get my camera out fast enough to get a picture of them rubbing up on it and checking it out lol but i did get some great pictures of my kitty cats which i will add at the end of my review!

The only downfall I have found with the Litter Genie system is that I can’t find any place around my area that sells it. I will have to order my refill bags online. Which is really no biggie. Just have to make sure I order it before I run out so that I have it available when I need it. Other then that i really enjoyed trying this product out and recommend for anyone who has feline children! Another plus is that if you also have puppies, they aren’t able to get into it and….well those who have cats AND dogs will understand lol

I will continue to use the Litter Genie System in my home!

Here is a funny Youtube video to demonstrate how to use the litter genie system! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gNBqD4Pu9T8

Scott Naturals Tube Free Review

I received Scott Naturals Tube Free free through Crowdtap to try out in return for my honest and unbiased opinion!

IMG_20141126_063830

I received a 4 pack of the Scott Naturals Tube Free toilet paper! I’ve never purchased this particular Scott product before. I am familiar with this brand as i have purchased other products from this brand. All I kept thinking to myself was that this was going to be a poor quality, fall apart product. The tube holds it all together right? Well no…no it doesn’t! I couldn’t believe how thick and durable this toilet paper actually was!

So why the tube? Well honestly, there really is no reason to have a wasteful tube in your toilet paper!

I have learned through doing this challenge that, as Americans, every year we throw away enough toilet paper rolls to fill the Empire State building TWICE. That’s a lot of trash.

So if everyone purchased this product it would save a little more room in our landfills, save more trees and leave a cleaner planet for our children later on. Yes, I understand that we have a long way to go in making our world clean. But why can’t we start with something as simple as getting rid of toilet paper tubes?

I shared my toilet paper experience with a family member! My Auntie Laurel, who I just absolutely adore! She’s my second mom! As you can see from the pictures, we had a lot of fun with it. Oh and that’s my fat cat Squeakers behind her!  Her words about Scott Naturals Tube Free were “Holy cow this stuff is great! ‘Look Ma no tube’. Where can i get more of this! How many tubes are thrown away? Really Wow, i never imagined it was so many”. Her face shows the surprise she had while we talked about it!

IMG_20141203_102327 IMG_20141203_102353

IMG_20141126_063941

You can see that having no tube doesn’t affect the way it goes on the toilet paper roller. And when the roll runs out, you just grab another and stick it on there. One less step to take while changing the roll!

Another great thing about this product is that it doesn’t cost as much as one would think. In visiting the Wal Mart website I found that you can get a 4 pack mega roll for less than $3. That’s a great value considering other brands are more than $5 for the same amount of TP. If you want the quality thick double ply.

I have taken the pledge to toss the tube and to do my part in saving the environment! You can take your pledge here…. http://www.scottbrand.com and get a great value coupon in the process!

I truly recommend the Scott Naturals Tube free toilet paper to everyone! I promise you wont be sacrificing quality just because there is no tube to throw away! I will definitely keep purchasing this product!

Ricola Revitalizing Herb Drops Review

I was chosen to try the new Ricola Revitalizing Herb Drops free through Crowdtap in return for my honest feedback about the product. I received 1 package containing 18 drops, Lemon Zest flavor and a sharing guide.

IMG_20141108_143642

I had never tried the Ricola brand before receiving it free through Crowdtap, so i wasn’t sure what to expect. I always just purchased my normal brand of throat soothing drops. I have always seen the commercials on T.V. but never gave them a second thought. I always did the Riiiiicolaaaaa, and i just know your doing it now aren’t you? HAHAHA           …….Anyway!

The suggested dose on the package states to use 2 drops at a time. The back of the package reads “Ricola Lemon Zest provides B vitamins, in combination with a mixture of Swiss alpine herbs and Ginseng, in a natural and refreshing way”.

The drops tasted really good and just like they say on the package, like lemon zest! I truly enjoyed the taste! I’ve learned through my challenge that Ricola makes their products out of all natural herbs. They filled this particular one with B vitamins in an effervescent center to help revitalize you during the day! I do have to say they work as promised! It didn’t give me like a caffeine boost but just enough to help me!

I really enjoyed this challenge and learned a lot about a product that I hear a lot about but never tried. I enjoyed the product so much that after I handed out some to friends, I went to the store and purchased some more as well as other flavors.

IMG_20141108_143713 IMG_20141115_094620 IMG_20141115_094638

Here is me handing out to some family! No one else wanted their picture posted lol

IMG_20141115_094840 IMG_20141116_173806

I have been recommending them to everyone! They aren’t much of a price difference then my normal brand so it was easy for me to decide, I am switching my brand to Ricola!

Zep Cleaning Product Review

I had the opportunity to try Zep cleaners for free through Crowdtap in return for my honest opinion!

I received 5; 4oz bottles of Zep cleaners: 3 Quick Clean disinfectant and 2 All-Around Oxy cleaner and de-greaser

IMG_20141101_084936

I started out by cleaning some of the door frames in my house. I have to say it worked wonderfully! They were pretty nasty and hadn’t been cleaned since…..WOW, since we purchased the house 3 years ago…I know I know, shame on me HA. Well let me tell you, they are clean now! The Zep quick clean is fantastic at getting dirt and grime off of door frames, walls, tables, counters and even worked on a dirt spot on my hardwood floors! Something my mop kept missing.

IMG_20141112_191649 IMG_20141112_191809

The Zep All-Around Oxy cleaner and de-greaser was a bit disappointing. My stove top was pretty bad but I would expect a de-greaser to do a better job. I did get a lot of the grease off but it left a lot too. Even when I let it soak. i scrubbed and cleaned 3 times before I gave up and used my normal cleaner.

IMG_20141112_192045 IMG_20141112_194838 IMG_20141112_192050 IMG_20141112_194834

The cleaners had a pleasant sent and didn’t have that normal overpowering chemical smell other cleaners have. And I also like the fact that these are safe around kids and animals. I must warn you. I suggest wearing gloves when using this, or any other cleaning product or you will end up with fingers like mine….

IMG_20141112_195437

Overall, I think the Zep Quick Clean Disinfectant is wonderful and I will continue to purchase and recommend the product.

The Zep All-Around Oxy cleaner and de-greaser, on the other hand, will not be added to my cleaning routine and I would not recommend for big jobs like my stove. It will work for smaller not so baked on messes but not something like what I cleaned.

Here are some more pics:

This was at a clients house: I cleaned her fridge while she napped!
