Frosty VoxBox!!!

Let me start off by saying that these items were complementary of Influenster!!! I received them for testing purposes. I'm very thankful to be able to tryout these items and will give my honest opinion about each item!!!

1. First we have the No7 Protect & Perfect Intense Advanced Serum. This retails for $29.99 (This clinically proven serum is even more effective at reducing the appearance of deep lines & wrinkles, for younger looking skin in two weeks)  This is an aging serum.  Let me just say that I got a sample size to try out not the full size.  I really like this serum, it made me break out the first time I used it. I don't usually break out so that was a bit of a concern, but I went away on the second day and didn't have a problem with it since. This product made my face feel so silky smooth. I didn't see any results on the aging but I only had a sample of it. I also got a coupon if I decide to buy the full size.  #GetADVANCED

2. NYC Expert Last Lip Color in Sugar Plum: Retails $1.99 (New Expert Last Lip Color in twenty tantalizing shades. Get intense, amplified color and shine that lasts up to six hours! Our moisturizing formula glides on easily for a silky, smooth, velvety finish for all day wear.)  Well I don't know about all day wear because I don't really wear makeup. I did try it on and its very sparkly and smooth.  The color was also very pretty. You can try it for your self and decide. #SugarPlum
3. Celestial Seasoning Candy Cane Lane Decaf Green Tea (It's made with the very finest green tea leaves peppermint and other botanicals, because at Celestial Seasonings, we know you are what you steep.) I really enjoyed this tea. The flavor tasted to me like a mix of peppermint and chamomile tea. It was very enjoyable. #CelestialTea 

4. EcoTools Hair Brush Retails $10.99  ( EcoTools hair brushes are designed with unique features that leave your head and hair happy and healthy. Long or short, straight or curly. EcoTools has the brush to tame any hair style with a variety of five brush head shapes and bristle designs specially crafted to suit every need.) I have really long hair like pass my knees. I am very picky about the type of brushes that I use to comb my hair, or that would even go through my hair. I cant use this brush to comb out hard stubborn tangles, but I works very well with smoothing out my hair. I enjoy combing my hair with this brush when my tangles are out. #LoveMyEcoHairBrush

5. Rimmel Gentle Eye Makeup Remover. Retails $7.49  (Gently removes all eye makeup, including long-lasting and waterproof makeup, with no oily residue)  I tried this on a waterproof eye pencil and it did not take the makeup off completely. I was really rubbing it on the makeup with not good results. I can say that it was not oily at all but I still had make up on me. #Rimmel
6. Rimmel Scandaleyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal Eyeliner: Retail $4.49  (Gives instant colour impact with its high intensity pigments. The ultra smooth and creamy formula glides on easily.)  With this product, what is says it does. It was so creamy. As I tried to remove it I had a hard time because it was waterproof, that's what I want in an eyeliner pencil. #Rimmel
7. McCormick Gourmet Thyme: Retail $4.79 (The freshest flavors deserve a fresh new look! MCormick Gourmet's Thyme imparts a light minty flavor that is distinctively warm and aromatic, Mcormick Gourmet Thyme can be used throughout the day in dishes such as breakfast casseroles, hearty soups, stews, stuffing, and oven roasted chicken.)  This seasoning is one that I really never thought to buy before. I have used to on my turkey for Thanksgiving and it came out really delish and it looked pretty too. #McCormickGourmet
8. Fruit Vines Bites: Retail $1.28-$1.79  (Fruit vines Bites are a new, soft, chewy fruit candy, from the Red Vines family, available in two fruit flavors - strawberry and cherry. Low fat and made with no preservatives, Fruit Vines Bites are available in three sizes: a 2oz single serve, a 5oz handing bag and a 10oz resalable stand-up bag and can be found at Walmart  in the West, Kroger, Walgreens, Target, Safeway and Rite Aid.)  I take on the fruit vines are that they taste good and different than the old fashion ones.  The bite size are easier to carry in your purse but a somewhat harder to eat because the bite size are a bit to big for my mouth.  #SweetSide
Thanks for stopping by!!

My DT Try Out for Wild Orchid Crafts!!!

Good afternoon bloggers!!! When I got the email that Wild Orchid Crafts was doing a design team call I got so excited!!!! Although I don't think that I'm good enough for the team, I wanted to try anyways!! I do like crafting and altering things, I also love the products that WOC carry especially the flowers.. 
     Here is the name of my youngest granddaughter at the moment. We call her Lilly and her mommy wanted to put her name on the wall by her bed. I thought it would be the perfect opportunity for the DT tryout for WOC.  So I'm hoping it was a success!!!

Colgate Toothbrush + Built in whitening pen!

Thanks to Infuenster, I had the privilege to try out the Colgate toothbrush with the built in whitening pen. I have now tried it for about 4 days and this is my take on it! When I first got it I was pretty impressed with it. The toothbrush made my teeth feel really clean and I love that. The whitening gel seemed sticky but really didn't bother me. I am a big coffee drinker and my teeth are pretty yellow. I think I can notice a difference but not to sure. I can say that my teeth do feel different in a good way.
I think that the gel may have some kind of peroxide in it because I feel a little foamy when I use it. I will continue to use it and see what happens.

Autism Awareness

April is Autism Awareness month! I joined a challenge at www.myscraproom.ning.com this week and this is what I made!

Dickinson's Witch Hazel Towelettes!

Dickinson's Witch Hazel Towelettes!

I really Love the way these oil controlling towelettes work!! The smell is not great at all, but the way they work is wonderful. What I do when I'm on the go is just wipe my face and neck with a Dickinson's oil controlling towelette and that's it my face feel like if I washed it with soap and water. They really work good and save on time in the morning!! You can also use it in the middle of the day if you notice your face getting oily.  Just pop one into your purse or car and use it for later!! It's just that easy. Try it you wont be disappointed!! Here is the link!  I received the Dickinson's product complimentary from Influenster!!

My take on the Colgate Optic white!

Hey bloggers, Today I want to do my review on the colgate optic white toothpaste and mouth rinse. I got these items to try out from influencer. Ok so I really like the toothpaste! I am a heavy coffee drinker so my teeth are nowhere near white, and I cant tell if it made a difference while using the toothpaste. I do love the way my teeth feel while I use the toothpaste. They feel very  clean and fresh. On the other had the mouth wash I just couldn't use. It has peroxide in it an I just got grossed out when I tried it the first time and couldn't use it again. Some of you might not mind the taste and feel of peroxide in your mouth but I just couldn't do it sorry. I cant give a good review on the colgate optic mouth wash. The toothbrush is wonderful love the toothbrush. It really makes my mouth feel clean. I come out of the bathroom happy.
