~Boursin Cheese Review~

boursin

Have you ever thrown a party and wanted to try something different in the taste department? Not having the same ole same ole cheese dip and chips, veggie plates, ect. Or even spice up dinner a bit so your not serving the same thing over and over again?

Boursin Cheese is the answer! I received a free sample of this great tasting cheese for my review and I have to say it is the best I have tasted in a long time! It wasn't so overpowering that I couldn't eat it and had just the right blend of seasonings that made it perfect!

I tried it first with Ritz crackers and fell in love! I had to go get some more to try on different things! I have to say that the Garlic and Herb was my favorite!20141220_165200

There are so many different ways that you can enjoy the Boursin Cheese brand. From adding it into your meals as an appetizer or even putting it into your mashed potatoes! You can find some great recipes to incorporate Boursin Cheese into your next meal at http://www.boursin.com/en_us/Recipes/Recipes-by-Category

We personally made the Stuffed pork chops and they were delish! Of course my picture wasn't as pretty as the one below lol But they turned out to taste amazing!

Who knew you could do so much with a spreadable cheese!

I would urge you to go out and try some of the Boursin cheese! Since I have tried it, I haven't let my fridge go without it! The spreadable cheese is creamy and the blend of taste is perfect and amazing.

I will continue to purchase the Boursin cheese and completely recommend others try it as well!

Just For Men Hair Color Review

20141225_141247

So this is my hubby! He wasn't happy when I told him that he had a mass amount of grey hair. All he kept telling me was "I don't have no grey, shuddup.I got em from you"! With his handsome pout face HaHa 20141225_141144

So when I got the chance to try the Just For Men free, I took advantage of the opportunity! My husband on the other hand wasn't all that thrilled. He has never used any hair color on his hair before.

Here is what his hair and face looked like before we used the Just For Men product.

20141225_141312 20141225_141328 20141225_141400 20141225_141422

Yes his hair is longer then mine! I love it! But look at all those grey hairs "I gave him" HaHa

The bottle was small and with his long hair it needed at least two bottles. I tried just doing the roots and not the entire mass of hair he has. One bottle is all we had. The Just For Men is targeted mainly for men with short hair, which is the norm. You don't see men with long hair very often so I can't complain to much about the size of the bottle. For a "normal" man the bottle size is perfect!

And so it began!

20141225_142322 20141225_142447

I really liked the fact that the Just For Men offers an insider points program to earn coupons, ect. You get more then just the product! These kinds of rewards programs are great for those who dye their hair often and can save you a lot of money!

20141225_142327

The product states that it only takes about five minutes to work. With as long as my husbands hair is we waited a few extra minutes. The hair on his face was a bit thicker so seemed to take even longer to work.

[caption id="attachment_710" align="alignnone" width="138"]20141225_142557 "Do I really have to do this?"[/caption]

20141225_143159 20141225_143212 20141225_143220 20141225_143324 20141225_143332 20141225_143343

Here are the after pictures of how well the Just for men worked!

20141225_144237 20141225_144251 20141225_144319

Although it did not get all the grey from his facial hair, it did an outstanding job! The color matched pretty well, little darker then his normal color, and made him even more handsome then he already was....yes i'm a little biased in that aspect!

So my review! When mixing the color ingredients, it didn't have an overpowering smell you normally get with hair dyes. So that was a plus. The color matched very well but if purchasing I would suggest going a step lighter then your normal hair color, as the color match for my husband made his darker. Although it did not get all the grey from his facial hair, I think the product did a great job. It was very simple to use. I just had to add one bottle into the other and shake it. The box came with everything I needed to dye my husbands hair.  As for comparing to other products, I am unable to compare any dye's for the men as we have not used any other product.

My husband told me that if he were to dye his hair again he would definitely use the Just For Men and recommends it!

What I received:
• Box of Just For Men® Original Formula in the shade of your choice
• Digital Coupon for $2.00 off Just For Men® Original Formula

Poise Microliners Review

20141225_181513

 

Who of you out there suffer from light bladder leakage (LBL)? I know that this may be a sensitive subject for many of you but I want to let you know that you are NOT alone.

As I got older and started having children I noticed that I wasn't able to hold my bladder as well. And yes, I have a little leakage every now and again. It is a very embarrassing issue for me but I know that there are many women and even men out there who suffer just like I do.

I'm being open about the issue so that you don't have to feel like you need to hide.  Did you know that over 45% of women suffer from light bladder leakage? I didn't either until I did a little more research.

There are many causes for light bladder leakage such as stress, caffeine, obesity as well as many other triggers.

Many of you know that when you have children your body changes tremendously. After having three children of my own it's hard to control things down under lol When I laugh to hard, or sneeze or even cough. Even when it's close to "that time of the month" it's hard for me to hold back.

So what can you do to help prevent accidents when your out and about? Well let me tell you that Poise has been a life saver for me!!! When I received the Poise Micro-liners I truly didn't think they would work. They were so tiny lol How can something like this hold anything that might come out of me? I normally just use sanitary napkins which are thick and bulky and aren't really made to catch anything other then what they are made for.

20141225_181430 20141225_183638 20141225_183646

 

The micro-liner Poise pads are specially designed with a material that catches little leaks! Poise calls it SAM (super absorbent material.) They also eliminate most of the odor. The first time I used these I actually took along an extra pair of pants just in case. But I didn't need them! I was amazed at how well these little babies worked!

As embarrassing it is to have light bladder leakage, I no longer feel like I have to worry about accidents anymore! I feel confident every time I leave the house!

I shared my sample pack with my aunt, who also suffers from leakage. Yes she gave me permission to say that lol She liked them so much she went and purchased some more with the coupon enclosed in her sample!!!

I personally really liked the Poise Micro-liners because they are small and can fit discreetly in my purse and they work great! Would i recommend them? Absolutely!

Ozeri Green Earth Pan 10" Review

Ozeri Logo

I received This Green Earth Pan From Ozeri free for my review. All opinions are my own!

20150105_172756

I want to let you know up front that I absolutely love this pan!

I have a gas stove and I frequently find that the bottom of my pans always seem to look burnt. I scrub and scrub but I can never get that burnt look off. The Ozeri Green Earth Pan does not have that issue! I have been using it for almost everything when cooking and it still looks like the day I received it!

20150113_112753 20150105_172943

When cooking, the pan evens out the heat so that all my food cooks at the same time and not just in the center, as you would get with other cooking pans. It's super easy to clean after use. It wipes out instead of having to scrub the food off.

It also came with a protector for the inside of the pan. So storing is a breeze and you don't have to worry about the pan getting damaged after putting it in the cupboard!

20150105_172950

I love this product and can't wait to purchase more for my home. I will be replacing all my pans with this Brand! I definitely recommend it for your home as well! You will see a difference in the way your food cooks and the time you spend on cleaning!

Listerine Healthy White Mouthwash Review

IMG_20141213_125423

I received a bottle of Listerine Healthy White free through Crowdtap in return for my honest and unbiased opinion.

What i received:

1 LISTERINE® HEALTHYWHITE™ GENTLE Sodium Fluoride Anticavity Mouthrinse

Sharing guide

I have always loved the Listerine brand and this product lived up to my expectations of the brand!

It has the same great taste as the other Listerine products I have purchased but doesn't have that "burn" effect on my mouth. I love that this is a whitening product because....well...everyone wants a brighter whiter smile with all the protective components like cavity fighting and fresh breath. So putting it all into one mouthwash is a great idea!

20141218_071345

I had never used this particular type of Listerine before but was not surprised that I liked it just as much as my other Listerine.

I have only been using it for a few days now and have not seen much of a result....I want to give it some more time! But my mouth feels great! It feels clean and fresh every time I use the Healthy White!

To me having a healthy, whiter smile, is important! I want to feel confident in talking to others and know that they are not thinking that I don't take care of my mouth. It makes me feel better about myself and that is the most important thing!

The Listerine Healthy White gives me the confidence to know that I am doing everything possible in keeping my smile healthy, fresh and clean! Yes...I also brush and floss!

20141218_073029 20141218_073050

20141218_073243 20141218_073253

I highly recommend the Listerine Healthy White to others! This brand is all I purchase for mouthwash.

Here is my wonderful collection of the Listerine I use!!

20141218_073433

I absolutely love the Listerine products! I can't say it enough! It's a great way to keep your mouth healthy, clean and your breath fresh!
