Have you thought about joining Influenster?

Have you thought of joining Influenster?

 It's a great site and a great way for you to sample and review beauty products. It's also a great way to interact with other like minded individuals. 

Since joining I have had the opportunity to sample and review a great number of products ranging from items for my household, beauty items, children's products, food items and even the occasional movie! I've received VovBoxes and joined Twitter parties, which let me tell you can be fun and a bit on the crazy side lol. 

Influenster's VivaVoxbox

Ifluenster offers seasonal and themed VoxBoxes throughout the year, offering many chances to qualify and join in on the fun. On their website you'll see that they have different types on badges, for the different type of things one likes or to accommodate you lifestyle! 

If you stay active and keep reviewing items it keep the score of the badges high which in turn is good for making you available for a VoxBox. 

There is also an APP for those who prefer using the website on their phones (This was actually a LONG awaited item) a great tool for those of us who like doing our brand activities on the go! You can use it to complete activities, read and submit reviews, answer questions and check you Social Impact score.

The Rose VoxBox
Another perk that Influenster members can enjoy are 'VoxPerks'. Usually they are digital coupons for several retail web stores or services, my favorite was for a Cleaning Service, I'm still crossing my fingers for maybe a doggy day spa? I'd definitely love that! Usually I have up to seven different VoxPerks at a time though it might vary by the user. 

    Overall Influenster is a great way for anyone looking to sample free products to do so. It's free, the community is always helpful and friendly and the customer service has always been top notch for me.  Not to mention the feeling of belonging to great community of ladies and gentlemen. 

So have you decided yet? There's nothing to think about, join me and become an Influenster! Soon you'll be the one posting the awesome things you'll receive along with making yourself heard through the reviews. Sign up is easy and before you know it you'll have your very first VoxBox!

I'm back!

Sorry for the long period of inactivity I haven't stopped blogging...yet!

I've just had some family errands to attend to and with my daughter starting her first year of school I've been helping out at her classroom as often as I can but now I'm back! Hopefully we can get the ball rolling and I can start blogging again even if it's a couple of posts a month!

Smiley360 got a makeover!

Old Smiley360 Logo
Have you gone to the new and improved Smiley360? Now it looks like they made it more direct and user friendly. Looks like they're making everyone re-do their profile though, since I had to reconnect my social media account and I had to fill out some information I had already submitted before, I'm excited hopefully the new Smiley360 is an improvement. Though I am hoping that new Smiley won't be a headache like the new Influenster

So have you logged in yet? If not, do you want to join? Then just follow this link and sign up! Fill out your info, confirm your shipping address and get started!

BzzAgent Product Review: Crest Be Toothpaste


Since the dawn of toothpaste, mint has been confined to slight variations like spearmint or peppermint. All that time, this reigning flavor of freshness was dreaming bigger, bolder and more delicious pairing. Oh, the places mint could take us if only we'd let it be free! Crest® Be has done just that!

So recently I had the pleasure of joining the latest Bzz Campaign which was for Crest Be Adventurous Toothpaste. 

Per the information on BzzAgent I would be receiving three different flavors: Mint Chocolate Trek, Vanilla Mint Spark and Lime Spearmint Zest. Now I don't know about you but when I first heard the name of the flavors I well. . . felt a bit icky. It sounded like they would be sending me candy-like hygiene items to try and well I wasn't too happy about that, especially right now that my toddler has gotten the hang of brushing her teeth.  

So my BzzKit finally arrived, and indeed it had three sample sized tubes of toothpaste.

The following is my thoughts and experience with all three toothpaste after trying them all out. 

  • Lime Spearmint Zest- Not bad as far as the flavor goes. Felt candy-like. My problem with this though is that when I brush, I expect my mouth to feel clean and well, fresh? This flavor of toothpaste does not do that. I did not feel clean and refreshed after using this, if anything I felt the need to go brush my teeth which defeats the purpose of this product, no? I think this was something that might have sounded good as an idea but as an actual item, nope. Not worth buying for me. My Husband tried it as well and he ended up rinsing it out, he definitely did not like it. 
  • Chocolate Mint Trek- I love chocolate, and I love chocolate mint. So when I was getting ready to try this flavor I figured 'Hey I bet this one will be better than yesterday's!' Again, nope. Not at all. If you give this to your kid as a way to incite them to brush up you might find someone who'll like this, but as an adult nope nope nope. Nothing quite like the feeling that I'm smearing a chocolate bar across my teeth. The flavor is ok, I mean they did an ok job at recreating it as a toothpaste but it's just not for me.
  • Vanilla Mint Spark- The mellowest of the three. The vanilla comes in first followed by a faint taste of mint. I might consider this one the best of the three. It doesn't mean I'll be stockpiling it anytime soon, but as far as these three go it's good to know I at least liked one.

So what's my final verdict? 

Stick to your normal toothpaste. That's what I'll be doing. Good on Crest for trying something new, but sometimes not every idea will be a winner.

Orgullosa: Fiesta de Bellos Momentos.

Este es el kit que recibí de Orgullosa para la fiesta de "Bellos Momentos".  Fueron una variedad de productos que le encantaron a las invitadas de la fiesta!

Como pueden ver productos de Tide, Pampers y Vidal Sassoon fueron parte de este kit. Y por supuesto cupones que también regale!

Ology-Moms Meet

So this is the most recent package I've received from Moms Meet! Ology is a product sold exclusively at Walgreens and from what I've gathered is a natural product! The paper towels in the picture were not made from trees! 

How awesome is that?

The all-purpose cleaner had a nice fragrance to it, but I still like my Mrs.Meyers so probably won't be switching that out, sorry Ology! 

Now, the detergent I haven't had an opportunity to try because I'm waiting for my upcoming sampling!

Cetaphil® Gentle Skin Cleansing Cloths

I love my Cetaphil® Gentle Skin Cleansing Cloths, they do a good job of helping me feel refreshed and do not leave behind any residue when you use them. I use them usually when I want a quick touch up but am in a rush to properly wash my face.

They come in easy, resealable packs which are both convenient for use and perfect for carrying in bags. Each pack has 25 wipes, not bad.

Would I replace my usual skin cleaning routine with the Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleansing Cloths? No, but they work fabulously in a pinch. I'm definitely keeping a pack in my purse for myself and to use on my toddler!

*This product was given to me for free for testing and reviewing purposes from for more information please check out their website*

BzzAgent Review: Children's Claritin

My daughter suffers from seasonal alergies so imagine my surprise and relief when I found out that I'd have an opportunity to test Children's Claritin in Grape flavoring.

When I first offered it to her she was a bit iffy because of the medicine smell but quickly overcame that problem. Taste wise, she had no complaints and was very cooperative with me!

Now, the medicine does  provide quick relief, an estimated 15mins before she had complete relief.  Children's Claritin does not however,  last 24 hours, and being a 24 hour medication she can't take another dose if she really needs to.

That was my only problem with this medicine. The longest it lasted for her was 5-6 hours maybe? Not bad I guess, but when someone advertises 24hrs you kind of assume it's safe to expect a full day of relief, but whatever.
