I recently tried E&J XO Brandy for free because I am a BZZAGENT. This company has a rich history and is an award winning brandy. For this reason, I was excited to try this product. I like that this brandy is aged in oak barrels for a minimum of 2 years to make it extra smooth. Also, it is distilled from the wine of three California grapes (French Colombard, Grenache and Barbera). This creates a light and sweet taste. I really like the flavor of this brandy. It had light, sweet and refreshing taste that I found rewarding. It has a hint of toffee, vanilla, brown sugar and maple flavors. I especially liked the maple flavor. The blend of flavors tasted really good.
Furthermore, I like that this is a versatile product. You can drink this brandy straight or in a cocktail. I like the suggested cocktails that E&J recommends. Some of the recommended cocktails are E&J and Ginger, E&J and Cola and E&J XO and Fizz. The E&J and Ginger contains ginger ale, lime juice and brandy. The E&J cola includes cola, lime and brandy. The E&J XO Fizz contains strawberries, simple syrup and moscato spumante champagne. My personal favorite is the the Fizz cocktail. I like that this cocktail has strawberries and and champagne. It tastes delicious. For more cocktail ideas, you can visit: https://www.facebook.com/pages/EJ-Brandy-VSOP/37217052115?fref=ts

I have now been using Filippo Berio Extra Virgin Olive oil for about 2 weeks. I was able to try Filippo Berio Extra Virgin Olive Oil for free because I am a BZZAGENT. I am using this product in place of other cooking oils because of the health benefits this oil offers. I am continuing to use this olive oil to bake, fry and grill chicken, turkey and seafood meals. I am also using it in place of butter and mayonnaise whenever I can. I have also used this olive oil to make fried chicken, as a dipping sauce for my Italian bread and on my turkey hoagies this past week. I included pictures of these meals.
Again, I really like the taste and quality of this olive and I will definitely continue to use this product. It adds a rich flavor to many of my meals and it is healthy to consume often. This product is excellent for your heart and lowering your cholesterol. For more information on the health benefits of extra virgin olive oil, you can visit filippoberio.com .
I recently tried Broadway Nails imPRESS Press-on Manicure Nicole Scherzinger Signature Series. I was able to try this product for free for testing and review purposes from Influenster. This manicure set features advanced nail technology that allows you to get a salon type manicure in seconds. Overall, it is easy to apply. You just peel off and press on your nails. These nails last for about a week. Also, these nails are easy to remove. This manicure set includes 24 nails and comes with a prep pad. I like the blue/purple nails included. I like the color and design. However, I don't like the orange nails included. Overall, I would recommend this product. It is easy to use and most of the designs/colors this brand offers are stylish and pretty. For more information on this product, you can visit http://impressmanicure.com/
I was able to try Schwarzkopf Professional OSiS+ Rough Rubber Paste for free for testing and review purposes from Influenster. This line of products also comes in gelastic, shape, dust it, buff, 4-play, mess up and g-force.
Schwarzkopf Professional OSiS+ Rough Rubber Paste is meant to add texture to your hair. It helps create a strong remouldable hold and a matte roughed up texture. Also, it is not supposed to leave any residue behind in your hair. For hair styling tips, I would recommend using this product on dry hair and only apply a small amount. You do not need to use a lot to add texture to your hair. Overall, I thought this product was okay. I thought it was a little messy to use and I did not think it made my hair look much better. I think this product might be better for people with lots of layers in their hair.

Overall, I would definitely recommend this product. It provides excellent odor and wetness protection and it does dry really quick. I like that this product contains odor-absorbing microcapsules that activate when you really need them, such as hot weather or stress. Furthermore, the pH of Secret Outlast decreases odor-causing bacteria. I also like that it does not like leave white marks on my clothes like other deodorants and it has a light scent that I like. The only downside is that sometimes too much deodorant comes out at once when you turn the dial.
It is really nice to use a deodorant that does not leave ugly white marks on your clothes. I like how Secret talks about the difficulties of white marks from deodorant by creating a cool video naming the moves we try to do to avoid white marks on our clothes. You should check out the video The ‘Deo Dance,’ starring Bravo star, Jenni Pulos on Youtube.
Recently, I was able to try Tastykake Kandy Bar Kakes for free from Influenster for testing and review purposes. These Kandy Bar Kakes come in three flavor varieties including S'mores, Peppermint, and Peanut Butter flavor. I was able to try the S'mores flavor. These cakes are supposed to contain light and fluffy cake that is wrapped in chocolate and contains a créme filling based on a candy flavor.
Overall, I thought the Tastykake Kandy Bar Kakes in S'mores were just okay. The cake was a little too dry for me. It was not as light and fluffy as I expected. However, I did not like the taste of the chocolate and creme filling. The chocolate had a rich and sweet taste that I like and the creme was rich, sweet and creamy. I just feel that the cake part of these bars could be improved. I would prefer a more moist cake. For the chocolate and creme taste, I would recommend this bar. However, if you prefer a real moist cake, this product might not be for you.
