Snapple Straight Up Tea Review

IMG_20170529_153408_506Happy Thursday everyone! It’s been a hot one out here in Northern California, especially with the Excessive Heat Warning that’s been going on. Hope everyone is enjoying their summer so far and staying cool. Speaking of staying cool, today’s review is about Snapple Straight Up Tea that I received for free to test out thanks to Smiley360.

IMG_20170529_151735_879My boyfriend and I decided to have a Memorial Day BBQ and the Snapple Straight Up Teas went perfectly with it! It was nice and hot that day and the teas were very refreshing. I must say that I liked the Sorta Sweet one better just because I can do without as much sugar, but they both tasted delicious. My boyfriend tried both of them as well and he liked both of them also.

IMG_20170522_190454_446I picked up my Snapple Straight Up Teas from my local Target store.

20170618_100844I’m also looking forward to trying their other flavors: Unsweetened, Rooibos and Honey Green.

Have you tried any of the Snapple Straight Up Teas yet? If so, what did you think? Or are you interested in trying them? Please feel free to comment below.

Until next time,

L’Oreal Infallible Total Cover Color Correcting Kit, Foundation & Concealing and Contour Kit Review

20170603_120126.jpgHappy Sunday ladies! I was lucky to have the opportunity to test out these L’Oreal Infallible  Total Cover products for free thanks to BzzAgent. Continue reading if you want to find out what I thought of these products and to see some photos of the results.

20170603_132841The L’Oreal Infallible Total Cover Color Correcting Kit worked really well. It was also really easy to use as I just tapped my fingertip on whichever color I wanted to use and then I could build up the product if I needed to do so. The green color corrector which is meant to neutralize red tones did a great job of doing that for my skin. I practically applied it over my entire face because my face tends to have a lot of redness to it and it completely got rid of the redness. I put the peach color corrector under my eyes and it did a pretty good job of reducing my dark circles. I applied the yellow color corrector on top of the peach color corrector to further neutralize my dark circles because I didn’t really have anywhere else to put the yellow. I applied the purple color corrector to my cheekbones to help brighten them. You could definitely see how the purple color corrector drew attention to my cheekbones. I will undoubtedly continue using this kit and will probably be purchasing this in the future because I like so many things about it.

The L’Oreal Infallible Total Cover Foundation does an awesome job at evening my skin tone and providing excellent coverage all over my face. It felt really lightweight and I loved the fluffy yet thicker texture of the foundation because that made it easy to go onto my skin and gave me the confidence that it would do its job. I felt that it did a good job of lasting throughout the entire day. I also like that it comes in a tube and the tube has a fine tip on it so that you don’t accidentally squeeze out too much foundation. I’m definitely going to continue using this product and consider purchasing this in the future.

The Infallible Total Cover Concealing and Contour Kit was pretty fun to use. I like the fact that it was in cream form instead of powder (which is what I usually use) because to me it was easier to blend. I used the lighter shades to highlight down the bridge of my nose and my forehead. I used the darker contouring shade on my cheekbones, forehead, and chin. I will definitely continue using this contour kit and I’m excited to see what other ways I can try to use it.

Here is a photo of me after my entire makeup routine is complete. As you can see, I’m definitely a fan of these products and I will continue using them.

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,

Rachael
