Sorry for my absence, but starting my new job and looking for an apartment has kept me swamped lately! But I’ve got some fun stuff to talk about…products!
Olay Fresh Effects (Va-Va-Vivid!) Powered Contour Cleansing System $12.99
I love my Clarisonic, but I gave it up for a week to try this Olay similar powered face cleaner. First let me begin by saying, this thing is tiny! I was shocked and a little afraid that I was going to break it. But I didn’t! Now I enjoyed this product, but I think I preferred the face wash that came with it over the powered cleaner. Compared to my Clarisonic, I didn’t feel like it gave a great clean. It also isn’t auto-timed so it didn’t shut off after a minute of cleaning. While I think this would be a good intro to someone looking to try a powered cleaner and not ready to invest (or for travel!) I don’t think I would buy this again. I would recommend using this as a test before buying a more expensive brand though.
Olay Fresh Effects (shine, Shine Go Away) Shine Minimizing Cleanser $6.99
As mentioned above, I really enjoyed this. It was a good cleanser that didn’t strip my face too much or leave it oily. I would invest in this in the future!
Secret Clinical Strength Stress Response $7.99-9.99
I’m not stranger to Secret’s Clinical Strength deodorants and I love them. And while the product worked great, I wasn’t a huge fan of the scent on this one. I felt like everyone could smell me all day long. And it wasn’t a great scent- it was more like a coconut oil/tanning bed scent. So, Secret Clinical Strength is great, but maybe try a different scent.
Skinnygirl Daily On-The-Go Bars (Greek Yogurt Blueberry Crisp) $9.99/5 bar box
I enjoyed this one day while I was slammed at work. I was so busy and knew that I was going to end up having a late lunch so I snacked on this Skinnygirl daily bar. And it was delicious! The blueberry taste wasn’t overpowering or fake tasting (you know that weird blueberry taste that really just tastes like blue?) and at only 180 calories per bar! I’ve been watching my sugar intake so I was surprised that at only 10g of sugar, the bar still tasted sweet and fruity and not like many other on-the-go bars that are…well…gross. So I give this baby a thumbs up. It was a delicious quick snack for when I was in a hurry. And- not that it matters to me- but it’s Kosher so that’s kinda cool!
I don’t know exactly where these are available? I’d guess probably places like Target, but I found them online at Amazon. They are in the normal price range for these kinds of bars, but they are also small (although it kept me satisfied for quite awhile). So I’d say give them a test and see if you enjoy them! I did.
Not Your Mother’s Beach Babe Texturizing Sea Salt Spray $6.00
I needed this! While I straighten my hair for it, it has gone through a lot of wear and tear over the winter months so my hair is brittle and fraying at the end. So having this sea salt spray to enhance my curls and keep from damaging my hair was exciting.
