This past week I have been a bit MIA. My husband and I went to New Hampshire to visit his parents. We had a lot of fun catching up with them and touring New England.
But I am excited to be back in the blogging world! And with a new blog layout! I would love to hear your thoughts on the new layout! Bear with me as I tweak it a bit over the next couple of weeks.
One of the fun things about blogging has been starting to review products. I am part of a network called Influenster that sends you products to review. It is so fun to get to test out things that you might not have tried otherwise. I received Hawaiian Tropic’s After Sun Lotion, Sinful Colors nail polish, First Aid Shot, Covergirl Bombshell mascara, and a Jamba Juice smoothie coupon (that I lost when we were moving!)
Hawaiian Tropic After Sun Lotion:
I used this just recently after going to the beach. It smelled really pleasant and was not sticky at all like some of the aloe vera gels. It wasn’t as cooling, but still felt refreshing. I wasn’t sunburned so I don’t know if it would work for a sunburn. But it was a nice product to use after a day in the sun.
Sinful Color’s Nail Polish:
The color I received was not my favorite. On my redheaded friend, the color was a beautiful mint color. But on my skin tone it just looked like a nasty shade of green. I was turned off mostly because of the color. I would be interested to try a different shade.
First Aid Shot:
I posted on my Instagram about this product. I had been up all night with horrible cramps. I had already tried taking the usual pain relief medication. But nothing was working. Finally, in the morning, I decide to take this. It tasted awful, awful, awful. But it really worked! I was amazed out how quick it kicked in and how much better I felt. It was worth the awful taste to feel so much better!
Covergirl Bombshell Mascara:
I never expected to really like a product that I got for free. I have tried hundreds of mascaras and never have found one that I really like. But I really love this one! It is not clumpy at all and it really does a good job of darkening and lengthening your eyelashes. At first, I was pretty annoyed that it was a two step process. But it is worth it for the results. I am very pleased with this mascara! Hopefully it comes in water proof though!
