Parissa Wax Strips Review!

No comments:

It's bikini season guys! I love summer because I love swimming and being outside. But bikini's can be annoying. Gotta make sure everything is in tip top shape if you know what I mean. That's why when I received Parissa wax strips I was both excited but also a little nervous to try them. I received this opportunity and the products for free thanks to Social Nature!

I have never used wax strips before, I actually have never waxed my bikini area before -- I am more of a shaver. I always wince with getting my eyebrows waxed let alone down there. So, yes to be honest, I was more nervous than excited. I did put it off for a bit, every time I amped myself up I would chicken out but then one day I was like -- nope gonna do it! And I did and it wasn't so bad! Sure that peel-off hurts at first but the end result is pretty worth it. 

It's very simple, the area actually should not be cleaned skin but if it's bikini area the hair should be trimmed. The steps are: warm up the wax, rub the double strip between your hands, separate them, press on, then zip off. Bam! Smooth skin! 

It is for all hair types, you can do it in other areas too like your eyebrows, lip, armpits, if you have hair there it can be done! 

Overall, it was a simple easy to do process. Parissa is an all-natural hair removal product company, the waxing usually lasts longer than shaving too so I'm excited to not have to worry about that for a few days. Definitely check it out you won't be disappointed!

ZzzQuil Influenster Review!

No comments:

Hey guys, lately because of the stresses of life I have been having a really hard time sleeping. I would have these dreams I did not want to have then wake up, fall back asleep, then wake up in another hour, it's just not fun. I have been even trying to get to bed early but still I wake up. Just hasn't been a fun few weeks guys, that's why I was very excited to try the nighttime sleep-aid ZzzQuil, thanks Influenster.

Believe it or not, I have never used a nighttime sleep aid before unless you include like sleepy time tea. I never really had issues with sleeping, thank goodness. But I  guess eventually the stress and pressure of life gets to you and messes up your sleep -- aka what happened to me. So I was very excited but also a little nervous to try this.

It is very easy, they come in liquid capsules so you don't have to drink any weird medication or anything. Just pop these two pills in right before you go to bed. They help you fall asleep in less than 20 minutes and ensure you to get a sufficient night's sleep (7-8 hours).

I tried these yesterday, put on an episode of Crazy Ex-Girlfriend and fell asleep during it. I did have a full 7 hours of sleep too which was good and a relief because I have been needing that lately. I still have dumb dreams but what can you do about that? I guess maybe not think about stuff before bed. '

Overall though I did feel very rested and ready to take on this week. I also liked that it is non-habit forming, just take it when you need it badly but not all the time. Also it is not for any pain just for sleep. Definitely check it out you won't be disappointed.

Buy It! Head on over to your local store they definitely sell ZzzQuil there! I saw it at my Target and Ralph's.

Cool After-sun Lotion Review!

No comments:

It's summer time so you know what that means -- swimming, sun bathing, and just being outside! But you have to remember to take care of your body and your skin! The sun is great but like all things too much of it is never a good thing. That is where Coola comes in! Coola is a great company that has a variety of sunscreens and sun care products for everyone.

I received their ER Radical Recovery After-Sun Lotion

As their website says this: "deep-soothing lotion that uses organic Agave’s natural moisture binding mechanisms for environmental defense and calming sunburn. This miracle plant provides superior hydration and promotes collagen synthesis while offering UV protection and clinically proven relief from sunburn. Rich with organic ingredients, Radical Recovery™ After-Sun Lotion will nourish, repair and keep skin youthful and naturally glowing all year long."

I really enjoyed this lotion a lot. I am not good with sunscreen, I rarely wear it even though I probably should. I have this dilemma though that if I wear sunscreen I never get any color and if I don't I may burn but if I nurse the burns with after-sun it will turn tan. It's a big annoying process. This lotion though is my new after-sun because it is great. Makes your skin feel nourished, goes on great and doesn't leave a weird sticky residue. 

It is made with natural ingredients that help ease the pain of the burn like: 
Agave - A soothing vitamin and antimicrobial-rich skin rejuvenator that offers natural protection from the elements. 
Aloe Vera - A natural cell regenerator containing more than 200 biologically active compounds that shields the skin, keeping moisture in and pollutants out. 
Lavender Oil - A calming anti-inflammatory that helps heal and repair skin that has been over-exposed to the sun. 
Rosemary Extract - A refreshing and renewing toner which firms skin by reducing excess oils. Sunflower Oil - An antioxidant that helps prevent damage caused by bright sunlight and other environmental factors such as pollution.

Also a little goes a long way, you don't have to put a load on just a little dollop or two to your face and body and you're all set to go.

Overall, this after-sun is great, I definitely recommend it! Check it out and Coola's other sun care products -- you won't be disappointed!

Chewy.com June Review!

No comments:
Hey guys, I know it is early July and this is for a June review but...June was crazy busy so I am sorry! Let's pretend it's still June for this post, cool? Cool. Once again this review is for Chewy -- a website dedicated to to pet treats and supplies with such a variety to choose from you can get lost in the hundred of brands, seriously, but you'll definitely find something great! 

This month I received: 
- Ideal Balance: Breakfast Medleys with Country Chicken and Egg
- Wellness: Petite Treats with Turkey, Pomegranate and Ginger

Dog treats keep sounding more and more fancy delicious, am I right? I mean I might try and sneak a bite of these just because they sound so good! Just kidding but I definitely did think about it for a second. 

The Ideal Balance Breakfast Medleys are great, they're shaped like little waffles! 
Some key benefits are: 
- They are natural, grain-free treats
- Real chicken is the #1 ingredient
- No corn, wheat or soy; no artificial preservatives, colors or flavors
- Recommended for adult and mature adult dogs
- Made in the USA

They are such a great treat to give your pup in the morning as a "hey good morning!" treat after their morning poop or just because. I gave these treats to my main fave pup Delly and he's a little guy so I did break the waffle in half just because it makes it a little easier for him but he still enjoyed them!

The Wellness: Petite treats were great too. I was worried because the flavor is a bit unique but hey doesn't make a difference with doggies and treats, you know? He seemed to enjoy them too. Also the size was great for him. 

Some key benefits of these are:
- Delicious taste and healthy ingredients
- Flaxseed for healthy, shiny coat
- No artificial colors or flavors
- Contains no corn, wheat, or soy
- Grain free

These were just as good, too. They were smaller as they're made for little guys so you can gave them a handful and boom you're good.

Overall, Delly enjoyed both of these treats and I'm glad because for treats they're pretty good for him, too! Check them out, you won't be disappointed!

Block Island Organics Suncare Review!

No comments:

Hey everyone, it is sure getting hot out there. I live in Los Angeles and it is supposed to be a record breaking 107 degrees tomorrow. That is crazy! And yeah man you know I am definitely going to go swimming tomorrow. But that sun is going to be strong so you need to protect your skin, that is why I am pretty excited to use my Block Island Organics

Block Island sent me their natural face moisturizer with SPF 30. 

I tried it the other day, I put on the moisturizer before I put on my makeup before I went to Universal Studios. I really liked it because it wasn't too oily, a little goes a long way, too. All you need is a little pea size and you're all set. 

This moisturizer is a clear zinc and vegan formula, it contains no paragons, sulfates, petrochemicals, phthalates, dyes, or artificial fragrances. 

My skin not only felt like it was being protected by the sun but it felt soft and moisturized. It also prevents wrinkles and early skin aging. 

Remember to apply it 15 minutes prior to sun exposure or else it may not protect you skin properly. Also if you are swimming it is recommended to also put on a water resistant sunscreen, too. Also remember to just reapply after every few hours, sunscreen and moisturizer can come off especially when you're out there sweating in the sun.

Overall, I did enjoy this moisturizer. It felt great, didn't irritate my skin or leave it oily, just left it feeling softer than before. Definitely check it out you won't be disappointed!
