Folgers Flavors Coffee Enhancers Review

Another Crowdtap mission! This time I got to try Folgers Flavors Coffee Enhancers! Just take a look at the amazing kit that Folgers and Crowdtap sent to us by checking out my unboxing below!

That's right! 3 of each flavor (Vanilla, Mocha, Caramel, & Hazelnut) were included. All were full size! That was a great surprise. And if you watched my video and seen where I mentioned sucralose, that was not an issue either.

The great thing about this is you could take it with you wherever you go, add a couple squirts to your coffee, and bam, instant amazing flavor! You can even adjust the flavor by adding more or less. I did have to add sugar to my coffee but that was fine with me. I was much more pleased with adding sugar than worrying about the sucralose flavor. I'm not a fan of that but you couldn't even tell it was there.

My favorite has turned out to be the caramel. It is amazing. It gives the taste of my favorite store bought frappe. I will be making my own at home now. I must now head to the store for some cool whip and caramel topping. lol

I loved the flavors so much that I decided to get my paint on with coffee. You all know me, I'm random. So while I was enjoying a nice mocha coffee, I was dipping a brush into some Folgers and painting this little lovely coffee horse.

At about $3 a piece, you would be surprised how long these bottles last. They are only 1.62 fl. oz. but one small squirt in your cup will be plenty to get your coffee bursting with amazing flavor. Everything you need to know about my new favorite coffee enhancers can be found at this link.

All in all, I would give this a 5 out of 5 stars. It's quick and simple. It makes already delicious coffee amazing. It is portable to turn that gas station coffee into a cafe experience. The only thing I can tell you is to make sure you have sugar or another type of sweetener. Definitely check it out! Try each flavor. It may surprise you which one you will like the best.

Cottonelle's FreshCare Flushable Cleansing Wipes Travel Pack Review

I recently got to review Cottonelle's Travel sized FreshCare Flushable Cleansing Cloths for free in return for my honest review of the product. 

I was actually very excited by this mission. I have tried their Cleansing Cloths before but not for traveling purposes. I was pleased with the at home experience but I am on the go quite a bit. I didn't know that these were made in travel pack so this mission was perfect for my busy days.
Let's face it, there are times that going to the bathroom can be an odd experience. None of us want to talk about it but we have secretly wanted a wet wipe in those times. We shouldn't forget about the other messes that happen in a busy life like sticky fingers from a snack on the go or spilled drinks. These cloths are great for both. 

The stylish and resealable packs contain 10 cleansing cloths. They have a light, pleasant scent and the clean ripple texture is gentle and works well in cleaning up any mess, be it bathroom specific or any other daily random mess. They are also flush safe, even for septic tanks. The packs come in several different designs and are small enough to fit discreetly in a small purse or a crammed diaper bag.
Honestly, these are something I would  and have recommend to my friends and family. I even shared a couple of my packs to a neighbor and a family member so they could experience the freshcare clean too. I think they are very handy to have with you on the go and not just for bathroom messes. I would give them 5 stars.

Coming in at $0.97 at Target, the price compliments this great product. They are cheap enough to pick up a pack and give them a try with no big expense gone. You can find them at a local box store like Walmart near you for around the same price. Definitely pick up a pack and try them for yourself. Take the Cottonelle challenge and experience that clean ripple texture.

Listerine's Ultraclean Floss Review

I recently got to try Listerine's Ultraclean Floss for free in return for my honest opinion thanks to Crowdtap. I'm going to seriously say this is the best floss I have ever used. 

Random Story Time! When I was younger, my brother and I would fight like cats and dogs. I had a daybed at the time. He got mad at me for a reason unremembered now. He unscrewed one of the metal decorative balls off the daybed posts and chucked it as hard as he could at me. Whap! My upper left front tooth broke in half. I had to get a crown made. Since then, thread based floss gets stuck on a partial crown and leaves threads stuck. What's worse than feeling like you have hair in your mouth? That's exactly what it feels like to have thread from floss stuck between your teeth. I'm always afraid it will rip my cap off as well. 

Listerine's Floss has no thread. It is ribbon shaped that makes it easy to get between even the tightest spaces between teeth. The micro groove technology removes plague with the greatest of ease. It has an amazing minty fresh taste that isn't overpowering but makes your mouth feel fresh. For more information check out the Listerine Website!

This will definitely be a staple in my house. The price isn't bad either. At Walmart, you can pick up a 30 yd roll for $2.47. That will last a while! I would recommend it to all my friends, especially those who have had dental work done. If you need a floss that gets in between teeth easily, removes icky stuff quickly, and won't get stuck on any dental work, I would recommend this floss!

Sally Hansen's Airbrushed Legs Review

Recently I got to try a VoxBox from Influenster that contained a sample of Sally Hansen's Airbrushed Legs. I must admit I was severely hesitant about trying this. I thought it would be like self tanner and I would have oompa loompa shade skin for a while. I was wrong.

Sally Hansen's Airbrushed legs is mowould be a liquid concealer for your legs. You place a small amount in your hands and rub it evenly over your leg. It is meant to cover imperfections in skin tone for a short period of time. 

I received medium shade and it went on well but I could have used a shade lighter. Because of this, I was slightly orange but nothing that the lighter shade wouldn't have corrected. 
As you may be able to tell by the picture above, it applied evenly. It did cover most imperfections but it did not cover larger scars such as the one in the center of my leg.

I used that scar as a marker to wash off half of my leg to see how easy it was to wash off and to show the difference between a bare leg and the makeup. I snapped the picturr below. It washed off very easy with a wash cloth and hot water. I was pleasantly surprised by this. As I mentioned, I was scared I would have been an Oompa Loompa for a few days. 

All in all, I give this a 4 out of 5 stars. It is a much better product than I expected. It doesn't cover large scars well and a medium shade was too dark for me but it did hide minor scars and color imperfections. It applied easily and washed off easily. It does come in several shades so you could match your skin tone m better. I would say this would be a great option for special occassions like weddings or parties. It definitely is worth giving a try.

Review of Neutrogena's Healthy Skin Blends

I’m a member of the Crowdtap NEUTROGENA® rewards program, and NEUTROGENA® sent me a sample of its NEUTROGENA® Healthy Skin Blends.

Healthy Skin Blends come in 3 amazing shades. Shade 10, also called Clean, is a translucent powder with a formula that controls oily skin and the shine that comes with that. Shade 20, aka Pure, is a blush that creates subtle highlights and a healthy illuminating glow. Shade 30, Sunkissed, is a bronzer that gives you radiant sunkissed appearance. Each contain Vitamin C and botanical conditioners to help create healthy skin.

The sample I got to try was Shade 20. I have many blushes over the span of my makeup wearing life. Let me say, most look extremely unrealistic. You end up with odd colored cheeks or you can't tell you even put any on at all. Healthy Skin Blends actually lets you combine a color that matches your skin tone for the perfect look. 

Each shade actually comes with actually 4 shades in one compact. You blend the colors together that you want to make your perfect shade. This takes the guess work out of which blush to buy at the stores and puts the freedom of choosing at home directly in your hands. The customization possibilities are limitless.

After trying Neutrogena's Healthy Skin Blends for a week, I am extremely pleased. I normally don't care for blush this much but now I think I will be going out to get Shade 10 to accompany the blush, as I do have oily skin in certain places. I know I will continue using the Healthy Skin Blends Pure because it is the first blush I have truly loved. It blends so perfectly on unprimed skin and lasts all day. Definitely check it out if you are looking for makeup that is more custome for your needs

COVERGIRL Intensify Me! Eyeliner and Super Sizer Mascara

I just wanted to share a couple products that I got to try free thanks to Influenster and COVERGIRL.

I must admit that I am eyeliner deficient. Normally, I use a wet eyeliner brush and some darker eye shadow to create a light eye liner so the mistakes aren't as noticeable. I recently got to try COVERGIRL'S Intensify Me! Liquid Eyeliner. I was severely intimidated by it at first. With a few practice swoops on my hand I felt confident in trying it. Before long I got the hang of a couple of different looks. It is very waterproof which is a good option. Just remember that you need eye makeup remover or some warm soapy water to remove the eyeliner. #IntensifyMe

The other product that I received was their new Super Sizer Mascara. I am not deficient in mascara but I must admit that the brush design is something new to me. Actually, it is a pleasant surprise. You twirl the brush when applying the mascara. You can feel the brush grab every lash and you know you are getting a full coating. It "supersizes" your lashes by about 400% and compliments the eyeliner greatly. It really helps to create that #LashFame.
