HTKJ Dog Rope Toys Review

IMG_20170422_141440_681.jpgHello again! Just wanted to pop in and do a quick review of these dog rope toys that I received from Amazon seller HTKJ.

They contacted me and asked me if I’d like to test out their dog toys. I agreed because my boyfriend’s friend has a pitbull who I knew would love these toys.

When I first received the box full of dog toys, I took them all out of their packaging and set them on the table. My cat Cheese aka Colby Jack got up on the table and immediately started playing with them. If I hadn’t already promised to give them to my boyfriend’s friend, I would have let Cheese keep them because he had so much fun with them!

We gave the toys to my boyfriend’s friend and he said that his dog really enjoyed the toys and it didn’t take long for him long to tear up the toys. Keep in mind, he is a pitbull, he is by no means a small animal.

I would definitely recommend these toys for any dog. For bigger dogs, you have to be ok with the fact that they might go through these toys fast though. I even recommend these for cats! My cat played with the ball and the ball on a rope and really enjoyed them.

If you want to know where to get these toys for your pet(s), click here.

I received these products free for testing and review purposes and all opinions are my own.

Until next time,

Hawaiian Tropic Silk Hydration Weightless Face Sunscreen Review

20170429_190450.jpg

It’s Thursday so it’s time for another review! I hope everyone is enjoying their week. I’ve been enjoying our nicer weather that we’ve been having lately out here in Northern California. I’m already a Hawaiian Tropic fan so when I got selected to try their face sunscreen I was very pleased!

20170508_164709

So to tell you guys a little bit about this product, it’s the Hawaiian Tropic Silk Hydration Weightless Face sunscreen. It comes in an easy to carry size and smells amazing! In the photo above, I took it right before my boyfriend and I went on a hike.

What I love about this product:

– It smells amazing! Very tropical!

-Compact size, easy to take with me anywhere.

-Does a great job of protecting my face from the sun.

– Keeps my face moisturized.

– You can’t even tell you’re wearing it because it’s so lightweight.

I would definitely purchase this in the future! Have any of you guys tried this or are you interested in trying this? Please feel free to comment below.

International Delight One Touch Latte Creamer Review

20170511_091444.jpg

Happy Thursday everyone! I’ve got a cool product to tell you guys about today! It’s the International Delight One Touch Latte creamer. I had been seeing ads for this for quite a while and thought it looked pretty cool so when I found out that I would be getting the opportunity to try this, I was pumped!

20170511_083541

I’ve been enjoying this creamer for the past week or so and I’m definitely a fan. The photo of me above was just taken this morning. I’m actually enjoying a latte right now as I write. I’ve got my delicious vanilla latte in my monogrammed mug and I’m doing one of my favorite things which is writing. This day couldn’t get any better!

This is REALLY easy to use!

You just:

1. Fill your coffee cup 2/3 full with coffee.

2. Shake the can of International Delight One Touch Latte Creamer.

3. Press firmly on the nozzle for 5 seconds as you dispense it into your cup.

I have to admit that the first time I tried using this I didn’t push down on the nozzle hard enough and I was wondering why it wasn’t working right. I tried it again and pushed down harder on the nozzle and it sounded like I was at a coffee shop making a latte on one of those frothing machines.

I’m definitely pleased with this product and I’m looking forward to trying out their other flavors; mocha and caramel. I would say the only downside is that it only has 7 servings per container. But that’s all the more reason to get out there and try some of these other flavors.

Have you tried International Delight One Touch Latte creamers? Or if you haven’t, please feel free to leave comments or questions below. I love hearing from you guys!

Mrs. Meyers Clean Day Body Wash Review

20170507_104112.jpg Happy Sunday everyone! I want to tell you guys about a body wash that I recently got to try out for free thanks to Crowdtap. It’s the Mrs. Meyer’s Clean Day Body Wash in Honeysuckle.

IMG_20170422_162515_323

First of all this stuff smells pretty amazing.  It has a really natural scent and it makes you feel like you’re outside in nature while you’re lathering up.

Also, it’s made with flaxseed oil, chamomile and aloe vera extracts, olive oil, glycerin, and other essential oils. I really like the fact that it’s made without parabens, artificial colors and all that other bad stuff that we don’t want to put on our bodies.

It also has a really good price point. You get 16 fluid ounces of body wash for $7.99. You can find it at your local Target store. To get an even better deal you could try to find it on Target’s Cartwheel app to see if there is a discount or coupon on there.

I feel that this body wash did a good job of cleansing my skin. I didn’t notice any irritation of any kind. The one good thing I did notice is that I could smell the honeysuckle after I’d already been out of the shower for a little bit. My boyfriend noticed the scent coming off with my skin and he really liked it.

Have any of you guys tried Mrs. Meyers body washes before? If you have any questions or comments please feel free to leave them below.

Until next time,

Almay Healthy Glow Makeup + Gradual Self Tan Review

IMG_20170406_152009_868.jpg

Hi everyone! I am thrilled to do this review today because I have really enjoyed using this product. It’s the Almay Healthy Glow Makeup + Gradual Self Tan.

20170405_061949Here is a photo of me without any makeup on before trying the product out. This will help you to see the difference in skin tone between my skin then and now.

20170415_105623This is me wearing the product. This is after 7 days of wearing it. I think my skin looks pretty good! Flawless, even skin tone and a nice color to my skin.

20170414_163138And here I am on the 7th after day taking off the product. Can you see a difference in my skin tone compared to the first photo? I definitely can see that my skin looks tanner.

I love that it is a gradual tan just like it says. It didn’t make any streaks on my face and it was super easy to use. A little goes a long way also, so don’t pump out too much when first applying it to your face. The bottle contains two separate bottles inside of it. One has the foundation and the other has the gradual tanner in it.

When I pump the product out, I mix it together on my fingertips and then apply it to my face with my hands. I have foundation makeup brushes but lately I’ve been into using my hands to apply foundation. It’s really easy to use and goes on nicely. I think that a bottle of this product will last me quite a while and I’m definitely considering purchasing this in the future as it is only $12.99 for a bottle at my local Target.

The shade that I’m using is the Light/Medium 200. It also comes in Light 100 and Medium 300.

PhotoGrid_1492280613877

I received this product free to test and review from Crowdtap. They gave me two bottles. One for myself and one for a friend. The one that I gave my friend is the Light 100 shade. She was super happy to receive it.

PART_1492361940562_IMG_20170416_095822So, here is a picture of my friend after trying the Light 100 shade. She said that it went on smoothly and she loves the way it looks on her skin. I’m so happy that she ended up being a fan of the product just like me.

Have any of you guys tried this foundation out? I would love to hear your thoughts and/or questions!

Until next time,

L’Oreal AIR DRY IT Wave Swept Spray Review

IMG_20170309_105222_531

Happy Saturday everyone! I’m really excited to tell you about this new hair product that I’ve been using for the past month; L’Oreal’s AIR DRY IT Wave Swept Spray!

It has a very pleasant scent; light and sort of fruity.

It’s super easy to use. You just:

  1. Spray throughout towel-dried hair
  2. Scrunch your hair
  3. Then AIR DRY IT

It also says that if you have naturally straight hair to apply the product, then put your hair in a braid to create soft waves. So far I haven’t tried the braiding method because my hair is naturally wavy, but I would love to try that to see how my waves turn out afterwards.

IMG_20170413_170800_948I love that it gives my hair so much volume and it really keeps my waves in place throughout the entire day. Although I have naturally wavy hair, if I don’t apply a product to it in the morning, the waves eventually fall out and my hair ends up pretty straight. I would definitely say that this product does what it says it will do. It helps my hair resist frizz, adds a shine to it and provides a hold for a textured, wavy look. Also, my hair isn’t crunchy or anything.

IMG_20170311_140700_838I don’t always say this about products that I get to test and review but I LOVE this product! It’s definitely going to remain a staple in my hair routine every morning. I used to just let my hair air dry without product in it, but this has definitely given my hair life! I also love the fact that I don’t have to use any heat on my hair due to blow drying. The price point is also very affordable. It’s only $3.97 at my local Target. The only downfall is that the bottle is only 4.2 ounces.

An interesting thing about the beautiful packaging is that it was designed by international artist and fashion collaborator Stina Persson. The design on the bottle is actually water color artwork which I find to be very fitting for this type of product.

Not only does L’Oreal carry this amazing product, but they also have 2 other products in their AIR DRY IT collection.

They have the AIR DRY IT Undone Style Cream which seems to be the cream version of the AIR DRY IT Wave Swept Spray that I have.

Image result for air dry it ruffled body mousse

There is also the AIR DRY IT Ruffled Body Mousse which seems to be more for people with curly hair, but I would be willing to try this out to see what my hair would look like.

Have you tried any of the products in L’Oreal’s AIR DRY It collection? I would love to hear your thoughts. And as always, if you have any questions about the product that I tried out, please leave them below.

I received this product free for testing and review purposes from Influenster and all opinions are my own.

Until next time,
