Shine, Shine, Go Away!!!


5ed19fc65b990124d5f027764fdf8295I recently received my Paradise Vox Box from Influenster and absolutely have fallen in love with the Olay Fresh Effects facial cleanser that was sent to me to try. I have naturally oily skin and since using this product for the past two weeks my skin is less shiny, oily and has dramatically cleared up.


I also love the way it smells and how it feels on my skin. Also, I have to add that it doesn’t leave my face feeling dried out like other cleansers that I have tried. I can’t recommend this product enough if you have oily skin. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!!! If you would like to find out how you can join Influenster, feel free to email me and I will send you an invitation.

It Works! Product Review



Our newest Mom on the Move Cherokee sent me a body applicator and two samples of the Greens on the Go. I was really excited to try this product because even though I work hard to
lose weight and get back into shape, after four babies you can bet I have loose skin on my belly.

I started with the body applicator, making sure to follow the directions to a T.

When I opened the packaging for the applicator I could immediately smell the eucalyptus. It was not too strong or overwhelming but the smell kind of gave you that “I’m being pampered” feeling. I also noticed about 5 minutes in I noticed a cooling sensation and about 20 minutes in the sensation became almost uncomfortable but mind you, I have sensitive skin. The instructions stated to use form fitting clothing or plastic wrap to hold the applicator in place. I opted for plastic wrap.

At the 45 minute mark, I removed the wrap and rubbed in the excess lotion. At first I didn’t notice a big difference until I went in the restroom with better lighting. I noticed the strechmarks on my belly seemed less prominent and the skin was so incredibly moisturized. The next day and even after a shower the skin remained toned and soft. I would love to continue wrapping and what makes it worth while is their customer loyalty program they offer.

Next I tried the “Greens on the Go”. I was a little off put by the green color of the drink but once I took that first sip I loved it! It comes in a small packet that you put into 8 ounces of water. This small packet though contains 8+ serving of fruits and vegetables in every serving and contains over 38 super foods in each. As a plus the ingredients are all natural. I had the berry flavor and it was very tasty and sweet.

Double Time


Not sure if this is a “normal” practice or not but I’m going to attempt at upholding two blog’s. One here at WordPress, for thoughts and posts about family etc. The other at Blogger so I can do sponsored posts/giveaways and provide advertising. I’m thinking my product reviews will be over at the other page as well but I will post the link here as well…

Honest-ly Speaking


                                                                       Right now you can get a sample pack of the Diapers and Wipes Bundle, Home Cleaning Essentials Bundle or the Health and Wellness Bundle from Jessica Albas’ Honest Company. Of course you’re going to need to pay the shipping cost of $5.95 and you will need to cancel your membership. Grab your sample pack HERE.

I will also be posting a review when I receive mine to let you all know what my thoughts are on the products, I chose the Diapers and Wipes Bundle. Hope to have good things to say!
