Nugg Beauty Face Masks Review!

No comments:
The older I get the more I realize I need to take care of myself and my body. That could be exercise and eating right but also body and skincare too. That's why I was very excited to try Nugg Beauty's face masks.

Nugg sent me three of their great face masks:
- Revitalizing
- De-stress
- Anti-Aging

I really enjoyed these masks. Firstly, I really liked the size of these masks. You can travel with them, but also they're enjoy for one or maybe even two people to use, which is great because sometimes when you open the container the mask gets old. But I also loved them because they made my face feel so great.

The re-vitalizing face mask is made with peppermint and flax seed, it helps revitalize and plump tired skin for a radiant look. The peppermint made my skin feel all tingly and did feel like it was revitalizing it. It also smelled great. I think this one was my favorite because I loved the tingle feeling, it was like my face was waking up again. As the website says: "Powerful yet gentle blend of precious Peppermint Oil, Flaxseed Oil, Menthol, Olive, Cranberry, Grape and Linseed Oil, Glycerin and Aloe Juice revitalizes, refreshes and plumps the look of dull and tired skin for a radiant, energized look and feel."

The anti-aging one is made with vitamin B3 and white tea extract. It didn't feel tingly on my skin but it did make my skin feel super soft afterwards. It helps improve you skin elasticity and neutralize free radicals. As the website says: "Powerful yet gentle blend of precious Vitamin B3 (Niacinamide), Wheat Germ Oil, White Tea Extract, Glycerin and Aloe Juice helps firm skin and reduce the appearance of fine lines while it moisturizes, smoothes and rejuvenates the skin."

Lastly, the de-stress one is made with coconut oil and acai berry extract. It helps nourish, calm, and protect stressed skin. This one smelled great and also just left my skin feeling soft and relaxed. This mask offers 3 benefits to normal and stressed skin. One is a a powerful blend of antioxidant rich Acai Berry, Bilberry and Goji Berry extracts as well as nutripeptides made of Hydrolyzed Rice Protein help neutralize free radicals to protect the skin from environmental damage. The second is: Coconut Oil, Evening Primrose Seed Oil, Mushroom Extract and Aloe Juice help soothe and calm the skin. Lastly, Glycerin, Aloe Juice and other oils such as Cranberry, Grape and Linseed Oil provide a boost of hydration.

Overall, I really enjoyed these face masks, they made me face feel and look great. Also the ingredients weren't harsh to the skin. I definitely recommend you guys check them out, you won't be disappointed!

Beets BLU Heart Rate Monitor Review!

No comments:

I am a big runner. Living in Southern California it is just super easy to turn into one especially with the weather being so nice. That is why I was very excited to try out Beets BLU heart rate monitor. Beets BLU is a wireless heart rate monitor that connects to your phone with bluetooth.

I love keeping track of workouts and stats, I never look at them after really, but just to have that option I like. So I had a workout tracker already on my phone, unfortunately it was not compatible with Beets BLU so I downloaded another one "MapMyFitness" which actually works pretty fine, too.

Beets BLU is compatible with a bunch of fitness apps. All you do is download the app, then turn on your Beets BLU. How do you turn it on? Just strap it on over your chest. There's little electrodes that look like snaps on it too and if you wet them it might start faster. Once it turns on you click the heart rate monitor attachment on your app, search for it using Bluetooth and BAM! It took me a few tries, but it ended up working pretty easily.

(Ignore my sweaty fast this was me post-run)

My app didn't show me the entire details of the heart rate (because it wanted me to upgrade for money, pshhh) but it did show me my average and maximum. 

Overall though I really did enjoy Beets BLU, super easy to use and super great to find out your heart rate. You don't want to push yourself too hard, you know? But also you want to push yourself enough. It's good to find out your heart rate to balance yourself out and to see what you should and shouldn't be doing to your body. Definitely check it out you won't be disappointed!

Tim Tam Review!

No comments:

I have a crazy sweet tooth, sometimes it gets me in trouble and I eat too many snacks but other times I discover some crazy awesome sweets that are just worth it. Take for instance, these fantastic Tim Tams. Tim Tams are originally an Aussie treat, now they've made their way across the world and are available in the USA! 

I received their Original and Chewy Caramel.

Tim Tams are basically cookies or "biscuits" as the Aussies say with chocolate cream or caramel in the center dipped in more chocolate. They are amazing. I loved these but especially the Chewy Caramel, holy moly out of this world! They're the right amount of chocolate cookie that they just hit the spot perfectly when you're craving something sweet. 

My roommate also told me about this magnificent thing called the Tim Tam Slam. This is how you do it:
1. Make hot tea or chocolate, put it in a cup, have it right in front of you.
2. Bite off both ends of the Tim Tam.
3. Put one of the ends in your mouth while dipping the other end into the hot beverage, kind of like a straw.
4. Now suck! 
The cookie sucks up some of the hot beverage then just melts  and smushes into your mouth creating a crazy delicious flavor explosion.

It was awesome! I just wished it lasted longer than the one shot basically because once it breaks apart you gotta eat that baby.

Overall, these were great and I definitely plan on purchasing more when I run out. Definitely check them out you won't be disappointed!

Buy It! Head on over to Tim Tam's website to check out where you can get them or hop on over to your local Target, Safeway, Kroger, Harris Teeter, HEB and select Walmart stores for a suggested price of $3.29!

Ralph Lauren Tender Romance Perfume Review!

No comments:
Ralph Lauren is a great brand that I always trust. They have a variety of great products from clothes to shoes to cosmetics to everything in between. They create high quality products that you know are great. That is why I was very excited to try their latest perfume: Tender Romance.

Tender Romance is a delicate caress of pure white magnolia and silky soft cashmere. The scent describes itself as a fragrance that evokes the feeling of falling in love for the first time.

I am not a huge perfume person, mainly because I forget to wear it most of the time. I have this vanilla body spray that I like and I'll spray if I feel like I'm a little stinky but that's about it. I am a bit picky with fragrances I guess, that is kind of why I enjoy vanilla because it's simple and doesn't come off as too strong but still smells nice and clean. Though this scent I did enjoy very much. 

Tender Romance's scent smells sweet and soft at the same time. It's not too powerful but it'll still make you smell really lovely and make you feel pretty great.

Overall, I really do enjoy this fragrance. I also love that it is a small bottle because it is the perfect size to travel with or just keep in your purse in case you're worried you might smell, haha. Once again  Ralph Lauren doesn't disappoint. Check it out you won't be disappointed!

Buy It! Head on over to Ralph Lauren's website and see where they sell it near your or head on over to your local Sephora or Macy's where they definitely have it.
