Can you believe that I got all this for FREE?! Of course you can…look who you’re talking to!
Thanks to influenster, I was sent this complimentary box of items to test and review!
Let’s get started!
These Beanitos chips are the bomb! They are made from Navy beans. Cool, huh! The White Bean with Sea Salt are especially good with salsa but are also good on their own because of their nice salty flavor. The Nacho Cheese ones taste like a milder version of Dorito’s. They both are really good. If you do Weight Watcher’s, this size bag is only 5 points.
O…MG! This Skinnygirl nutrition bar is SO GOOD!! It’s drizzled in dark chocolate and the strongest flavor is definitely banana. I like the oatmeal texture of it too. The whole bar is only 4 Weight Watcher points! I will definitely buy these and keep them in my purse for when I need a pick me up when I’m thrifting. ;-)
See, I really did try them! My husband liked them all too.
Every. Single. Time. I eat, I get food stuck in my teeth! Could it be because I had braces? I wasn’t all that crazy about these DenTek Comfort Clean Floss Picks and neither was my husband. They are supposed to be good for tight teeth but we were both afraid that they were going to get stuck. The floss started to shred almost immediately.
The DenTek Fun Flossers are for little kids, so I dropped them off at my friend/ neighbor’s house to be reviewed. She has a six year old daughter and a ten year old son. Her daughter said that she loved the small size and that she “could really get in there” and liked having flavor since her current ones don’t have any. Her son said that they worked well, but he could take or leave the flavor.
The Listerine Freshburst Pocketpaks? Well, after I finally figured out how to open them, they weren’t too bad. I expected them to be super strong like the mouthwash. With that in mind, I broke the strip in half. I gave the other half to Mitch. He thought it was too strong. I thought it wasn’t. It’s a split decision on this one.
Next up, products for the face.
Because I have oily, sensitive skin I was really leery about trying any of these products, but I took one for the team and tried them.
This is the first time I have ever tried a mask at home. This Montagne Jeunesse Manuka Honey Peel bills itself as ‘Sexy Natural Skincare’. How could I pass up sexy skin?!
As you can see, it looks like honey. It smells like honey too…at first. Then, the Jasmine smell overpowers it. I didn’t like that smell at all. I decided to only put a thin layer on. That was a mistake. When it came time to peel it off, it came off in thin pieces, like when you have a sunburn.
If I would have put it on thicker, I think it would have peeled off easily. I would pass on this product.
This L’Occitane Shea Butter Light Comforting Cream is for normal to combination skin. Having oily skin (with a pimple forming on my forehead as I write this post ), I used this product sparingly. It has a light scent to it, but I prefer to use unscented facial products. I have to say that it made my skin feel very soft and not greasy. I won’t use it on my face again BUT I will use it on my hands.
Last, but certainly not least is a product that surprised me the most.
I haven’t worn drugstore foundation since I was in high school…35 years ago! Do you see that this is HAIR SMOOTHING!? foundation? My first thought was…if my facial hair is long enough that it needs to be ‘smoothed down’ then I need to make an appointment to get my face waxed! BUT, when I tried it I was actually surprised how much I liked it! Even applying it with that silicone thingy-ma-bob that comes with it was… oh-kay! I will actually use this again.
Here is a photo of me wearing the foundation.
Not bad, huh!
Well, there you have it. My honest opinion of everything in the box. I have to include the following statement:
“I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes.”
Oh, wait! There’s more! I also did a video review of all the products on youtube. O…MG…
