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
