Neutrogena Norwegian Formula Hand Cream

I recently tried Neutrogena Norwegian Formula Hand Cream in Fragrance Free and Original for free because I am a BZZAGENT. These products are supposed to help with 7 signs of damage, which include dryness, chapping, scaliness, roughness, splitting nails and dry cuticles.  The only difference between the fragrance free and original variety is that the fragrance free is unscented and the original has a light scent. Both products contain glycerin to provide a long lasting moisturization.  I felt that both products helped heal my dry hands and my hands felt softer and smoother. This product did help with the chapping, dryness and the roughness that I experience on my hands. I do not currently have a problem with scaliness, splitting nails or dry cuticles to know if it is also helpful for these signs of damage. This product would be beneficial for those who want the perfect manicure because this product is supposed to help with dry cuticles and splitting nails. I would then use nail polish to make your nails look even better. I personally like OPI and Nicole nail polish. They come in a variety of shades to give you the perfect manicure. I included a picture of what my hands/nails look like after using this product without and with nail polish. I used a pale pink nail polish.

However, the disadvantages of this product are that cream is a little greasy when you first apply it to your hands and both varieties contain parabens.  This product would be even better if it was all natural and did not contain possibly harmful chemicals.  If you are looking for a basic hand cream to repair and heal your hands and you are not looking for an all natural product, I would recommend this product.

Stella Artois Chalice

I recently received a Stella Artois chalice for free because I am a BZZAGENT. This chalice is designed to preserve the aroma of beer, improve the flavor and make sure the head foams just right. The shape of the chalice allows it to be positive for CO2 and helps retain the flavor of beer. I also like that the chalice looks nice. It looks refined and sophisticated. This chalice is perfect for displaying your beer at special gatherings or for every day use. I like the shape of the chalice and the star stem. The star stem is where you hold your chalice.

In order to have the best tasting beer, Stella Artois recommends that your practice a 9-Step Belgian Pouring Ritual:
1. The chill
2. The purification 
3. The unveling
4. the aclchemy begins
5. the crown
6. the beheading
7. the judgement
8. the cleansing
9. the bestowal

I tried the ritual Stella Artois recommended with their beer and I would agree that the chalice really preserves the flavor and creates a nice head. I also like how the chalice looks fancy. I love the taste of their beer and this chalice makes it taste even better. For more details on the Stella Artois perfect pouring ritual, you can visit The video on their website clearly explains the perfect pouring ritual.

COVERGIRL Blastflipstick Lipstick

I recently tried CovergirlBlastFlipstick Lipstick. I tried BlastFlipstick in Vixen, Stunner and Minx.I was able to try this product for free because I am a BZZAGENT. This lipstick is a blendable lip duo that includes two different lipstick shades in one product. It includes a bold shade on one side and a shimmery shade on the other side. I like how you can wear each shade alone or blend them together to create a new shade. I thought this product was easy to use, was lightweight and blended well. 

The Vixen shade I tried featured a creamy burgundy shade and a shimmery pearl pink shade, the Stunner shade featured a bright pink and a gold shade and the Minx shade featured a deep brown and a gold shade. I felt that the Vixen shade complemented my fair skin and blonde hair the best. It gave my lips a nice color with a hint of shimmer.  However, I did not care for the Stunner and Minx shades.  I did not feel that these colors were right for me. They did not look good with my skin and hair color.   

Overall, I would recommend this product. I like that it includes two different shades, it is lightweight and does not dry out my lips.

Green Mountain Coffee

I recently tried Green Mountain Coffee K-cups for Keurig brewers because I am a bzzagent. I was able to try several varieties for free. I tried wild mountain blueberry, extra bold Sumatran reserve, Colombian fair trade select and Vermont country blend.  I enjoyed the taste of all four flavors, but the blueberry was definitely my favorite. I love flavored coffee and blueberry was a unique flavor for coffee. The taste and quality of this coffee is really good. I also like that all of these varieties are fair trade certified and that the Sumatran reserve flavor is organic. This company makes many fair trade certified flavors. I like companies that support farmers by offering them a fair price for their coffee beans and helps improve their working conditions. Fair Trade also means that they assist in protecting the environment.  Furthermore, I like that the one variety was organic because I am trying to consume more healthy products. I like to drink coffee that is free of pesticides.
Overall, I would recommend buying Green Mountain Coffee. The taste and quality of their coffee is good and best of all it is fair trade certified. In addition, I like that they make many different roasts and flavors. For this reason, you will be able to find a Green Mountain coffee that meets your needs.

If you are interested in learning more about Green Mountain Coffee and their fair trade efforts, you can visit their Facebook page. Their facebook page also features Grace Potter and Michael Franti offering Fair Trade source trips and a live stream of their concerts.

Glade Expressions Collection Update

  Since I have tried the Glade Expressions Collection, I have received many compliments from friends and family because their products really make my home smell nice. I was able to try these products for free because I am a bzzagent. I currently have the Pineapple & Mangosteen oil diffuser in my living room. It makes my whole downstairs smell amazing. It has a nice light tropical smell that I love. It also is a nice decoration piece to add to my living room décor. I like the wood color.  I like that it lets off a fresh scent and eliminates odors. 

  Furthermore, I have also been trying the Fuji Apple & Cardamom Spice fragrance mist. I use this product in my bathrooms and currently have it displayed on my bathroom countertop. I like that the bottle has a nice shape, pretty colors and interesting graphics. It helps spice up my bathroom décor. I also love how this product eliminates odors and not just mask odors. It has a natural scent that I love.
  I have been using both products for about a month and I would still definitely recommend trying this line of fragrances.  This line offers a line of natural scents that eliminate odors extremely well and come in pretty decorative containers.

Glade Expressions Collection

I recently tried Glade Expressions Collection for free because I am a bzzagent. I decided to try Fuji Apple & Cardamom Spice fragrance mist and the Pineapple & Mangosteen Oil Diffuser. I really liked the scent of both products. It helped give my home a nice scent and worked well at getting rid of odors. This Pineapple & Mangosteen fragrance has a mix of pineapples, mangosteen, coconut and passionflower, while the Fuji Apple & Cardamom Spice fragrance has a mix of apple, pear, cinnamon and clove.

I like how the diffuser has a modern and stylish design that makes it perfect to display in my home and it provides a long lasting fragrance that I love. I also like the new design of the fragrance mist bottle. It is stylish and is very easy to spray. It provides the room with a fine mist of long lasting fragrance. After you finish your fragrance mist or oil diffuser, you can buy refills.

Overall, I am very happy with both products I tried and would definitely recommend trying Glade's Expression Collection line of fragrances. I really liked the Fuji Apple & Cardamom Spice fragrance and the Pineapple & Mangosteen fragrance. These products are also available in Cotton and Italian Mandarin and in Lavender & Juniper Berry. All scents are available in both a fragrance mist and an oil diffuser.

Unreal Candy

I recently tried Unreal candy. Since I am a Bzzagent, I was able to try their candy for free. I was really excited to try this new line of candy. I liked that it was supposed to be a healthier and a more natural candy bar. I liked how these candy bars have no artificial flavors, corn syrup or unhealthy hydrogenated oils. I absolutely love candy, but I was looking for a healthier option with less fat and nothing artificial. I decided to try their peanut butter cups and their caramel peanut nougat chocolate bar. Overall, the taste of both candy bars were just okay. I was disappointed in the taste of the candy. The chocolate did not taste as good as traditional brands. The caramel peanut nougat chocolate bar had similar ingredients to a Snickers bar, but did not taste as good. The peanut butter cups were also just okay. Overall, I would probably not recommend Unreal chocolate. While I love that it is made with healthier ingredients, it does not taste as good as other candy brands.

Bic Soleil Savvy Razor

I have recently tried Bic Soleil Savvy razor for free because I am a bzzagent. This razor comes with four refillable cartridges.  I like that this razor has a flexible triple blade and pivoting head to help remove hair easily. This razor makes my legs really smooth and gets rid of all my hair without cutting my skin. I think it is the lubricating strips and Vitamin E that keeps my skin so smooth. I also found it fairly easy to replace the blades. Best of all, this razor has a rubber grip on the handle for easy control and I absolutely love the design and pink color. I have been using Bic Soleil products for years and I would definitely recommend trying Bic Soleil Savvy.

Garnier Fructis Sleek and Shine Shampoo and Conditioner

I recently tried Garnier Fructis Sleek and Shine shampoo and conditioner. I was able to try this product for free because I am a bzzagent. Both the shampoo and conditioner has Argan oil and Apricot that is supposed to make your hair look sleek and super straight for three days even in 97% humidity. This product is supposed to be most suitable for dry, frizzy or damaged hair. Also, this product has a nice apricot scent. However, I was disappointed in these products. I have very dry and frizzy hair and these products did not help my hair at all. These products did not make my hair shiny at all, my hair was still frizzy and it made my hair super flat. I also have fine hair so I think these products made my hair have even less volume. Instead of improving my hair, it made it look worse. I really would love to use a product like this that is designed for fine hair that gets rid of frizz without weighing it down. I would not recommend this product if you have fine hair.

Garnier BB Cream

I recently was able to try Garnier B.B. Cream in Light/Medium because I am a bzzgent. This product is supposed to renew radiance, brighten your complexion, help even out your skin tone and cover imperfections, hydrate for 24 hours, has SPF 15 to protect your skin from UVA and UVB rays.

I like that this product has SPF 15 to protect my skin from UVA and UVB rays. I also like how it has minerals and Vitamin C to brighten my skin. However, I felt that this product made my skin look a little oily and shiny instead of just radiant and brighter. This product did not feel lightweight on my skin and you can not use a lot of this product if you want a natural looking appearance. When I used a lot of the product on my face, it made my skin very shiny and made it look like my makeup was overdone. I would not recommend this product if you have oily or combination skin. It seems best for people with normal or dry skin.

Hill's Science Diet Ideal Balance for Cats

I recently tried Hill's Science Diet Ideal Balance for my cat. I was able to try this product for free for my cat because I am a bzzagent. My cat loves the taste of this product and I love that it is good for my cat nutritionally. I like that the meat (chicken) is the first ingredient in this product and that it also has fruits and vegetables. It also has vitamins and protein that are good for my cat. If you visit you will find a tool that allows you to compare this product to other brands. Best of all, Hill's Science Diet is now offering a rebate on their site for a free bag of food. The only complaint I have is that the price of this food is expensive. The price is one factor that will discourage people from buying this product.

Dunkin Donuts Iced Coffee

I recently tried Dunkin Donuts French Vanilla Iced Coffee. Since I am a bzzagent, I was able to try this product for free. Overall, I really like the taste of Dunkin Donuts iced coffee and that it is freshly brewed. I also like that it comes in wide variety of flavors that I like. Dunkin Donuts iced coffee comes in french vanilla, blueberry, mocha, cinnamon, coconut, hazelnut, caramel, raspberry and toasted almond. My favorite flavors are french vanilla, blueberry, mocha and cinnamon. Best of all, their iced coffee is affordable priced. It is a great drink to help give you energy in the morning and is a refreshing drink. If you really like Dunkin Donuts, you should like them on facebook and join their fan zone at their Facebook site.
