Dream Water

Another cool freebie site that I am a member of is Swaggable. Yesterday I received a product from them called Dream Water which is an enhanced water that is supposed to help you sleep. When I Received the bottle I honestly couldn’t believe that it was supposed to do anything. You don’t normally see anything that’s 2.5fl oz that actually works unless its like 5 hour energy. At this point i was willing to try anything to get some sleep as i had only gotten 3 hours of sleep 2 nights in a row and was beyond exhausted. So i decided to try it. I honestly was hoping for more flavor. I’m one of those people that cant stand most vitamin waters and propels, etc,. because I either have to have a lot of flavor or none at all. So I was pretty dissapointed in the flavor. About 30 minutes later I was running around seeing if i even could stay up any longer and it was not happening. If you really want to be a rebel try to drink dream water and stay awake! That is the real task because falling asleep after taking it was way too easy! And the good thing was that i stayed asleep all night which NEVER happens. So i definitely would recomend this product. It worked, which sad to say is not normally the case! 
Happy Dreaming!

Review of Clear Scalp and Hair Therapy

As I’m sure you all already know, I am a BzzAgent. As a BzzAgent we are sent products for free in exchange for reviewing them, and sharing our opinions. Recently I received Clear Scalp and Hair therapy shampoo and conditioner. I do a lot of coloring to my hair (i love bright colors :D) so i need a product that will help repair my hair and keep it from getting too dry and keep it from splitting. So i was pretty excited to get to try this product as it is very inexpensive in stores, not only that but it is a very new product so none of my friends have tried it either. Imy Bzzkit (what Bzzagent calls the box full of goodies you get) i got a full sized bottle of both the shampoo and the conditioner as well as 8 sample bottles of each. I absolutely LOVE the bottles! for one they are pink, one of my favorite colors, and they have a very cool design. They only downside to the bottle design is that if you go to set them upside down you have a very high chance of dropping them on your foot. OUCH! lol but if you are not as clumsy as i am you will have no problem with 
them. :)
Now for the fun part: So the shampoo was very surprising. it was very thick and once you put it in your hair it was so sudsy it felt like foam. It made me feel like it was definitely cleaning my hair. it also had the pearl effect that i love, and it smells great! and since it was so sudsy i didn’t need as much as i normally do, which is a lot as i have hair almost to hips. 
I seem to have problems with most conditioners. like i said before i have very long very dry hair. so any conditioner i use has to be thick otherwise it doesnt work. i thought i was going to have the same problem with this because most cheap conditioners just dont do the trick. I really liked it. When i rinsed out my hair it was very soft. Now i could only hope for my hair to be pretty when it finally dried.
The one thing i didnt like was that for some reason my hair took forever to dry, WAY longer then normal. I dont know if it was because of the product or if it was because of something else. But the good news is that my hair was amazing. not as frizzy as normal, definitely shinny, and extremely soft! I couldn’t believe it. But if it didn’t do what it was supposed to do they probably wouldn’t be able to do such a big launch of their product. lol This is definitely my new favorite shampoo and conditioner. And my hair still smells awesome because of it! thanks for reading guys!

Secret Clinical Strength deodorant and Secret Body Spray

Recently the Secret facebook page had a giveaway called “Fearless Friday” where we were asked to describe a moment where we were scared but had overcome it. I got picked for their prize and received a sample (about half the size of the normal size) of Secrets Clinical Strength deodorant and a full sized sample of their lavender body spray. And it even came with a hand written note :)

I loved the deodorant. I tried a clinical strength deodorant a couple years ago and decided it wasn’t worth the money. However since then the deodorants i have been using have not been working as well. So i was pretty excited when i saw what they had sent me. I love the scent, and the results are even better! instead of having to put on deodorant a couple times a day, i was able to put it on and not sweat for over 2 days. Looks like i will be going back to clinical strength for good :)

The other product i was able to try, the lavender body spray, i also liked, but probably will not buy. The scent was not overwhelming like most lavender body sprays, which was nice but the scent only lasted about 10 minutes before i did not notice it anymore. I’m sure it was still there but I like to be able to smell that I smell like when using perfume. For some I’m sure it is nice because I know of a lot of people that get major headaches from any perfume, so they would like to have the scent but not smell it themselves.

Garnier Pure Clean 2 in 1 Shampoo

Recently I received a sample of Garnier Pure clean 2 in 1 shampoo. Normally I really don’t like 2 in 1 shampoos. They really seem to mess with my already frizzy hair. Sadly this product was no different. When I tried it I also used conditioner just in case, but even with the conditioner my hair was still more frizzy then normal. The one really good thing that came from the product was how shinny my hair was after using it. It almost seemed to sparkle when under sunlight, which was a definite plus. Another thing that I really liked was the scent, it was not the typical garnier shampoo smell. not that I didn’t like the smell, but after a while it did get very old. Personally I will not use the product again, but for someone who doesn’t have overly frizzy hair and would like to cut their shower time down or keep things environmentally friendly this could definitely be a great product for you :)

Remington smooth and silky epilator

A couple months ago I went out and bought the remington smooth and silky epilator (model #EP-6025) from Target. It was very expensive compared to the average razor which took a while to get over. Before buying i read a lot of reviews on this and other epilators and this seemed like a smart choice. The design on the epilator itself is very nice, which is one of the reasons i picked it. it came with two different heads. one for large areas, and one for smaller or sensitive areas. also it had a pouch and a brush to clean the heads off with. my first reaction (which i had been expecting from other reviews) was “OUCH!!” lol. it wasnt as bad as i thought it was going to be but it was still very painful. I was very happy with the results. I have very very dark hair that when i use a razor still shows from underneath my skin. so whether i shave or not i feel like i have done nothing. especially underneath my arms. but when i used the epilator nothing showed. I have not been that excited over a shaving product since i first started shaving. after using the product for a couple weeks i noticed that not only did my hair become thinner (a lot of reviews said their hair was not as noticeable but since my hair is dark its still VERY noticable) but it also became softer. also the more i used the epilator the easier and less painful it became. the only other drawback besides the price and the pain lol was that the epilator is very loud, i am constantly afraid that i will scare or wake my babies with it. but luckily neither has happened. Overall if mine does break or wear out i will definitely be purchasing another epilator, most likely another one of the smooth and silky ones and i have already started recommending it to friends and family. it is definitely worth it for us mommys that dont have time to shave everyday!

Children’s Claritin

I received Children’s Claritin for free through bzzagent.com. When i first got the package i was very excited to be able to try a full sized product for free, and it was my first campaign from BzzAgent that had a physical product to test out. I tasted the grape flavored syrup and surprisingly it was very good so i decided it was time to try it out on my daughter. she loved the taste of it, which im sure those of you with kids know that most medicines are not kid-approved, so it was nice not to have to fight with her to get her to take it. after using the product for a couple weeks i noticed her allergy reactions had reduced and she seemed to be doing a lot better when taken outside. same with my youngest. we will definitely be using childrens claritin for our childrens allergy needs from now on :)
