Sol Scents Review

Disclosure: I received one or more products or monetary composition for the exchange for my honest opinion. I only recommend product that I would use personally or believe would be a good fit with my readers. All opinions are 100 percent my own and may differ from yours. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255: “Guides concerning the use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising.



I know there been times when I don't want to apply sunscreen because it is to greasy or the scent of the sunscreen. What if I told you that I found a company that has made great smelling sunscreen? I came across Sol Scents and they offer a variety of different scents for their sunscreen. When I heard about the different scents I was eager to try their products. Sol Scents offer a variety of scents like Vanilla Silk, Pina Colada, Cucumber Melon, Deep Love, Angelica, Flower Blast and Raspberry Dreams. 

I received several products from Sol Scents for review. I received their Sol Scents Flower Blast sunscreen, Flower Blast Lip Balm, and their Sol Scents Clear Face in Raspberry Dreams. 

Their Sol Scents sunscreen comes in a small 8 oz cute bottle. It comes in a pink bottle that represents Flower Blast. I like the size of the bottle because it small enough to put in your purse for on the go. I also like it has a snap cap so if you decide to put the bottle in your purse or your bag it will not get all over your stuff. This sun screen has a SPF 50 UVA & UVB protection and is water resistant (80 minutes). When applied this sunscreen it applied easily. It was not greasy and absorbed quickly. I also loved the scent when applying this product. I felt great when I can actually use a sunscreen that I am fond of. I will definitely invest in Sol Scents Sunscreen in the future. 

The next product that I tried was Sol Scents lip balm. I was able to try this in Flower Blast. I like they offer a variety of different flavors of lip balm also. This lip balm has a 15 SPF. When I opened the cap you can smell a nice scent of flowers. I am really fond of the scent. When applying the lip balm it went on smoothly. I liked how there was not a greasy feeling after applying the lip balm. After several days wearing the lip balm my lips felt hydrated. 

The last product that I was able to try was Sol Scents Clear Face. I choose the Raspberry Dreams and this came in a 3.4 fl oz bottle. This product is also SPF 50 and paraben free. When I applied this product to my face I noticed that it was very light cream. That it went on smoothly and absorbed quickly. I also loved the Raspberry scent. 

Sol Scents overall is a great company. I like how they made sunscreen fun. I am not to fond of the old sunscreen and now I am a huge fan of Sol Scents and probably will not go back to old sunscreen. This sunscreen comes in colorful bottles and great scent. Let me not forget the product is amazing and works wonders. I would highly recommend Sol Scents.

I was excited when I was given the opportunity to try Dials new Coconut Water Refreshing Mango Body Wash. When I heard that the scent had Coconut in it I was not to sure, because I am not a huge Coconut fan. When I received my bottle of Dial Coconut Water refreshing Mango it came in a 16 fl oz bottle. The first thing that I did was open up the cap and she if I could get a sniff of the scent. I was quite impressed with the scent it had a perfect blend of Coconut and Mango. I instantly became a fan of this scent. 

This body wash has hints of green coconut and tropical mango. When I heard that it had mango I was excited. I love body products that have mango in them. This product also helps replenish hydration. Since I have dry sensitive skin I am always looking for products that will help hydrate my skin.

When I tried this product in the shower I was quite impressed on how well the soap lathered up and how it felt on my skin. When I was rinsing off all the soap I was impressed on how well it rinsed off and did not leave a soapy after feel. When I got out of the shower my skin felt nice and soft and I could still smell the coconut and mango on my skin. Like I said at the beginning I was not sure if I would like this product because it had coconut in it. I will definitely get this body wash again. It had the perfect blend of coconut and mango.

Baby Journey Bath Hammock Review

Disclosure: I received one or more products or monetary composition for the exchange for my honest opinion. I only recommend product that I would use personally or believe would be a good fit with my readers. All opinions are 100 percent my own and may differ from yours. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255: “Guides concerning the use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising.


Are you looking for that special item to give as a gift at a baby shower? Well I am here to tell you I found a unique gift that will be a hit at the baby shower. Baby Journey offers a variety of different baby products like bath bath tub, gates, and so much more. I was able to review one of Baby Journey new products called the Bath Hammock. 

When it came to bath time for my babies I always found it difficult. I could never really find the right baby bath tub or product to use. I had to squirmy kids and one of them hated baths so they where always squirming or trying to get out of the bath tub. Well Baby Journey made a great product where your baby can relax and join their bath time. 

I will admit that I have never seen a cooler product than Baby Journey's Bath Hammock. This product looks very comfortable and sturdy for your baby. When I took the baby hammock out it can fold up and be storage easily. I find that I can put it under my sink with out any hassle. What is even better if you go out of town you can bring it with you without any hassle. I enjoy be able to bring this product where I go. In case Grandpa or Grandma is watching your baby and  has an accident and needs a quick bath this bath hammock is all ready to go. 

Another thing that I like about Baby Journey's Bath Hammock is the material. It is easy to rinse after each bath. It also comfortable for your child and they will enjoy it. I will have to admit the material is the best that I have found out of all the other bath products out there. This product is recommend for babies 0-3 months and weight up to 25 ibs. 

I would highly recommend buying this product for the next baby shower that you are attending. I guarantee they will fall in love with this product right away. You can find this product and their other products at their website below.













Hylands Review

I know this summer allergies have been super bad for our family. My 6 and 3 year old had their first bad year with season allergies. When it comes to their ages as a parent I am afraid to give them anything for allergies. I guess you can say I am one of those parents that are a worrie wart when it comes to my children. 

I have heard in the past and my pediatrician has recommend the brand Hyland's. Hyland's provides a line of infants, children and event adult over the counter medications. They have cold medications, allergy relief and more. I was excited when I was given the opportunity to review two of their allergy relief products. 

The first product that I received was their Hyland's 4Kids Allergy Relief. This is recommend for ages 2-12. This allergy relief relieves itchy nose and throat, itchy and watery eyes, runny nose and sneezing. This package comes with 125 quick dissolving tablets. With this bottle I like that they come in a safety bottle so it prevents any accidents. I also like how they are in pill format, but they dissolve in your children mouth. My children absolutely hate any liquid form of any medication. This will be a lot easier to give to my daughter. On the side of the packaging you will see the dosage chart where they tell you how many to take and how often. 

The next product that we received was their Season Allergy Relief. This formula is non drowsy and comes with 60 quick dissolving tablets. This allergy relief is for indoors and outdoors allergies. This product will help myself in a huge way when our dog sheds. Our dog doesn't shed a lot, but there are times where she shed more than usual and sometimes it bothers my children allergies. This specific allergy relief are for children 12 and older. I hate taking pills because I am always afraid that I am going to choke on them and I hate liquid. I like that these specific pills dissolve in your mouth. 

I would recommend Hylands products and I believe that their brand is one of the best for children. I agree with my doctors opinion about Hylands and would recommend them. I feel safe in using their products for my youngsters. You can find their products on their website below.

BabySpa Review

I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255: “Guides concerning the use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising.



BabySpa is a line of natural products created for your child. BabySpa creates individual stages for your child. Each stage offers a variety for your child ranging from infant to toddler. I was excited when we were able to review a few of their products from their Stage 2 line. We were able to review their Soothing Face Cream, Bubble Bath Milk, and 3 in 1 Tearless Shampoo, Body Wash & Moisturizer. 

The first product that we were able to review was BabySpa Soothing Face Cream. I was eager to be able to try this product. My daughter at times has dry skin and always trying to find product that will help with her skin, but I have never heard of Face Cream for toddlers. When I heard about this cream I was quite intrigued and wanted to try this cream on my daughters skin. This product is Stage 2 for a walker and recommended for ages 4 and up. This comes in a 3.4 oz squeeze bottle. When I tried this product I liked how it was fragrance free. This product can be used in all seasons. When I applied this product on my daughters skin it is not greasy and absorbed quiet quickly. This product helped hydrate her skin. I really was fond of this specific product because during the summer my daughters nose and and cheeks seem to dry out and this product has been helping hydrates these specific areas.

The next product I was able to review was their Bubble Bath Milk. This product comes in Stage 1 and Stage 2. I received Stage 2 to review. This comes in a 13.5 fl oz bottle. This product contains organic aloe, vitamin E & Calendula. This product also has Ylang Ylang, Lavender & Sweet Almond oil. When I put some of this bubble bath milk it had a pleasant sent of citrus scent. I was quite surprised on how many bubbles  formed when I used two cups full in my daughters bubble bath. My daughter seemed to relax during her bath. The main concern that I had is would the bubble bath be gentle on my daughter skin and it was. It felt like after her bath that her skin was super soft. I would recommend this bubble bath for infants and toddlers. 

The last product that I was able to review was their 3 in 1 Tearless Shampoo, and Body Wash & Moisturizer. This product also comes in stage 1 or stage 2. I received a stage 2 product for review. The scent to this product is citrus also. This product is recommend for toddlers and adults with sensitive skin. Which this product will go well with my daughter. I used a small amount on my washcloth and it lathered and washed well. I also like this product as a shampoo also. It lathered up quickly and left my daughters hair nice and clean. I really like how this product is a 3 in 1 product. This product is my favorite product out of the three that were sent. 

I would highly recommend these product for my daughters daily care. These products would make great products for baby shower gift. You can find these products and other products at their website below.

Global Goddess Review and Giveaway


Disclosure: I received one or more products or monetary composition for the exchange for my honest opinion. I only recommend product that I would use personally or believe would be a good fit with my readers. All opinions are 100 percent my own and may differ from yours. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255: “Guides concerning the use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising.

I was excited when I was given another opportunity to review a couple of products from Global Goddess Beauty. Global Goddess Beauty is a company that offers a variety of different beauty products. They offer product such as skin products, hair products, nail products, lip products and so much more. 

I was given the opportunity to review two of their brand new products. They just came out with a new product called Exotic Eyes Blackest Black nourishing mascara. The other product they just came out with is Coconut Amla Nourishing  Lash and Brow Conditioner. 

The fist product we tried was Global Goddess Exotic Eyes Blackest Black Nourishing Mascara. This Mascara net weight is 6.5 gms. This product comes in a nice tube. When I took the brush out of the mascara it was very thin brush. When I took it out the mascara did not clump together which was great. When I gently rubbed the brush on my skin it gave a nice color of black and was dark. I was excited to try this product on my lashes. This product is supposed to give your lashes volume and nourish your lashes. In this product there is Japanese Camellia Seed Oil that nourishes, moisturizes and strengthen lashes. There is also Aloe Vera that adds luster, strengthens, conditions, moisturizes and helps promote healthy lash growth. There is also Panthenol, Lecithin, Wheat Protein and Beeswax heal that helps condition and moisturize. When I applied the mascara I applied at the base for and gently went to the tip of the lashes. I repeated once more to get the thickness and the volume that I wanted. I was quite impressed with this mascara. My lashes looked full and natural after applying. They also did not look clumpy or heavy after application which was great. A lot of mascaras I try feel heavy and look clumpy. I would recommend this mascara and I would buy it again in a heart beat. 

The next product that I was sent to review was their Coconut Alma Lash and Brow Conditioning Serum. This product retails for $12.99. I will be honest and I never tried a product like this before. When I read the description of this product is that it give lashes and brows the beauty treatment they deserve. This product is made with global botanical ingredients from Mother Nature. The benefits of this product that it nourishes, protects, strengthens, repairs, conditions, hydrates, moisturizes, and adds shine to lashes and brows. This product also helps prevents, decreases and treats lash fallout or damage that can be caused by sulfates based eye cosmetics. This can even include some mascaras that you may be using. When I used this product I was afraid that it may irritate my skin. This product did not irrigate me at all which was great. This product is vegan and fragrance and paraben free. This product was quite simple to use. When I applied I put one coat on before I went to sleep. I made sure before I applied this product that my brows and lashes were clean first. It is recommended that you apply this product on clean lashes and brows. This product helped strengthen my lashes and I seen a difference within a week. You can also use this product under the Exotic Eyes Blackest Black Nourishing Mascara. 

Overall I was impressed with Global Goddess new products. I really enjoyed trying their Exotic Eyes Blackest Black Nourishing Mascara. This mascara is by far one of my favorite mascaras that I have tried. I would say it would make my top 5. Maybe even the top 3. I like how gently it went on with application and it gave me a nice natural full look. I would definitely purchase more of their products in the future.

I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255: “Guides concerning the use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising.

I have a little girl and I am always excited to dress her up in those cute dresses and those adorable bows. I know when I found out I was going to have a little girl I was excited. I knew my little girl would be spoiled and have tons of bows. 

I came across a little Boutique called ViVi Designs Boutique and she offers a variety of different products. Her boutique offers monogrammed and personalized clothing and accessories like stationery, apparel, headbands, gift bags, and hats for girls. 

I was excited that I was able to pick a headband for my daughter from her boutique. There were so many to choose from it was hard to choose just one. They were all very beautiful. I finally decided which one I wanted for my daughter and I choose the Hot Pink and Black Headband. This Headband you had three different options for the headband part which was neat. I choose the hot pink and black flower with the black headband.

When I received the headband in the mail it came in a box. When i opened up the box the headband was carefully wrapped in hot pink tissue paper which added to the excitement. When I opened the tissue paper my daughter saw a new headband. She could not wait to put it on and absolutely loved it. She had to wear it everywhere! It did slide off a few times, but it was all my daughter bouncing and wondered how it stayed on for that long. It fit very well on my daughter head and did not tug her hair. The headband is gorgeous and every little girls dream. It has a rhinestone in the middle of the hot pink flower which the hot pink flower is rested on a big black flower. Then is attached to the black headband which has a hot pink felt circle to connect everything. This bow would go for everything, but we have a special dress for this special bow. 

My overall opinion of ViVi Designs Boutique is very positive. I was impressed with the variety from products and choices. The customer service was amazing and very helpful. She made sure I got exactly what I wanted and made sure that this bow would be a great fit with my daughter. The bow that we received was top quality and very durable. It also can stay on with all the bouncing of my daughter. Which is fantastic. I would definitely recommend ViVi Designs Boutique and her items would make great gifts for baby showers, birthday or anytime gifts. You can find her products with the link below.

ViVi Designs Boutique have also agreed to give one headband to a lucky reader. Emmy's Deals is not responsible for prize or shipment of the prize. Enter Below.

Fake Bake Bronzer Review

Disclosure: I received one or more products or monetary composition for the exchange for my honest opinion. I only recommend product that I would use personally or believe would be a good fit with my readers. All opinions are 100 percent my own and may differ from yours. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255: “Guides concerning the use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising.


In the past I have worked with Fake Bake several times on their products. I have always been a fan of every product that I reviewed, so it was no surprise when I received their Bronzer I became of a fan of this product also.

When I received the Fake Bake Bronzer in the mail I will have to say that it was packaged with a lot of love and protection. It was wrapped in a lot of bubble wrap and also wrapped in hot pink tissue paper. This bronzer comes in a nice black box that has a hot pink Fake Bake design on the top. It also has on the side of the box in hot pink letters Bronzer so you know what is inside. I like that about the box that it has the product name on the side case I am in a hurry or I forgot what box it may be in.

The compact box it self is black with also the hot pink design on top that says Fake Bake. This product is paraben free and the net weight of the product is 10 grams. This bronzer is a face and body bronzing compact customized to blend with their Fake Bake Self Tanner. This product is safe on all skin tones and skin types, so you do not have to worry. I know personally I have to be careful in what products that I use o my skin because my skin is very sensitive. 

The only thing about this product that I do not like is it is hard to open it up. In a way that is not bad either because the product is protected. I like how this compact has a mirror inside and the bronzer it self had a piece of plastic over top of the bronzer to protect it. This product in my opinion is a very nice creamy bronzer that is easy to blend. It give your skin a very nice bronze and it blends well with my skin and give my skin a nice tone, shine and has shimmer all together. I would highly recommend using this product.

To be honest I knew from the start that I would love this product because all of the other product I have tried from Fake Bake I absolutely loved. I know that this product would not be different. I was surprised on the quality of this bronzer. I would recommend using it with your self tanner. You can find this product on their website with the link listed below.





Stunner of the Month Subscription Box Review

I only recommend product that I would use personally or believe would be a good fit with my readers. All opinions are 100 percent my own and may differ from yours.

It is officially summer and it is time to bring out those sunglasses. I have another great subscription box for you. It is call Stunner of the Month. This subscription box is where you get one pair of sunglasses shipped to your doorstep per month. I have seen a lot of different subscription boxes, but never sunglasses. I think this is a fun idea and a great concept. This subscription box is only $9/month and free shipping. How could you beat that. I know majority of the time if you want to buy sunglasses at the store you can not even buy them for that price. Stunner of the Month also offers $1.00 credit for every new member you refer, so send 9 friends over and have them buy the subscription service and you can get a free month. 

When I received my first subscription box in the mail it was a very small package. On top of the package it had a nice sticker on the top and it said Stunner. I opened up my box and there was a tiny screwdriver for my pair of sunglasses. I thought this would come in handy! I know at times I try to find a small screwdriver that will fit in my glasses and can never find one that actually fits. What came inside of my subscription box was two stickers one of sunglasses and another was a stunner sticker. Than I received a pink purple cloth case to put my sunglasses inside which was great that it came with that. Now for the good part I received a multi purple/white sunglasses. The frames are a little big but not to big. The sunglasses are great quality, durable and sturdy. They will be great for the summer months coming up. 

If you love sunglasses than this is the subscription box for you. For $9.00 a month is not bad at all. You would not be able to go to the store and pick up a decent pair of sunglasses for that price. I think it fun to get a box each month and wait for the surprise. I would recommend this subscription box it is fun box and reasonable price. If you want to find more information or get your first box you will find the link below.

Today I was sent a copy of a new DVD called Clue: A Movie Mystery Adventure. I have been always a huge fan of Clue and love a good mystery so I was excited to be able to review this DVD. 

A little bit about Clue: A  Movie Mystery Adventure-

"Six very different teenagers – Dimitri, Liz, Lucas, Agnes, Seamus and Whitney – are all enjoying their everyday lives when they witness a dramatic incident. Unfairly accused of creating a hoax, they team up to find out the truth. Today, Shout! Factory Kids, in collaboration with Hasbro Studios, will unleash the family mystery adventure Clue: A Movie Mystery Adventure on DVD. Join the young sleuths as they work together discovering and deciphering a succession of clues.

My overall thoughts about this dvd that it was decent. My 6 year old son thought it was great and the movie really made him think. This would make a great DVD if you are a Clue fan or if you like a good mystery. My son is a huge fan of mysteries and this DVD is great and keeps him on his toes. Although some 6 year olds may not be ready for this DVD. It would be a parents judgement. When I watched it with my son we were trying to figure it out and who did it and we could not figure it out. It was very clever and kept you guessing throughout the movie.

This would make a great DVD for older children and pre-teens. This would make a great party DVD or slumber party DVD. This DVD is currently Available on DVD and you can find it on Amazon or your local retailer.

My daughter always seem to have tangled hair. She has long hair down her back. My 3 year old hates having her hair brush. After her bath and in the morning she tends to try and hide from me, so I would not end up brushing her hair. I have been looking around for awhile to find the right brush for her hair. The brush that we currently have seems to be pulling her hair and it a nightmare. Recently I came across a company called SMOOBEE Magic no Cry Brush and I knew I had to try this product. 

I received a blue SMOOBEE for review and little gems to put on the brush. My daughter was very excited to use this brush and able to put gems on her new brush also. This made her feel special that she was able to make her brush her own. We received a light blue brush for review. After letting her design her brush I did the test and tried to brush her hair. I did spray her hair with detangled first so it would help the brushing experience. This brush glided through her hair and did not get tangled in her hair. She did not cry or fuss while brushing her hair. She was quite excited that the brushing went fast and easy and was not a huge fight. I have been using this brush for several days and she seems not to fight me as much and is more calm when I am brushing her hair. I would highly recommend this brush for your children. I also like how they have gems for your brush it give it that extra magical touch to it. I think that was my daughters favorite feature about the brush. You can find more information and this product at their website below.

Kids Academy Review

Disclosure: I received one or more products or monetary composition for the exchange for my honest opinion. I only recommend product that I would use personally or believe would be a good fit with my readers. All opinions are 100 percent my own and may differ from yours. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255: “Guides concerning the use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising.


I know as a parents I am always looking for new apps for my iPad for my children. Since school is out I like to have apps on my iPad so my son can refresh on what he learned in school so he is prepared for next year.

I have found several great apps for my son and my daughter to use over the summer. Kids Academy offers a variety of different apps that are educational that will help children brush up on their letter, numbers, reading and ect.

The first app that I was able to review was their Kids Academy Reading and Writing. My son is 6 years old and he has having a hard time with reading and this app is fun for him and helps him brush up on reading and writing. This app has has several different activities such as mazes, rhyming words, uppercase lesson, lowercase letters, short vowels, long vowels, and writing words. My son usually does not want to sit down and learn about vowels, letters, rhyming words and ect. This app helps make it fun and new where he will spend hours playing with this app. The great benefit is that he is learning from this app and having fun. 

The next app I was able to try their free version app preschool kids games kid puzzles and I was quite impressed. My daughter and son were able to try this app. Although my daughter like the app a little more than my son because he already new the basics that his app provided. Although it was a good summer refresher for him. My daughter loved the app and zipped through it. Her numbers are getting better and her hand and eye coordination. She is starting to get a feel of how to write the numbers and starting to understand her abcs. I would recommend Kid Academy apps for your children and they do help kids get an understand of numbers and abcs. This would be a great app to use during the summer to help your children prepare for preschool and kindergarten. You can find these apps on iTunes.
The last app that I was able to review was their BINGO app. My daughter enjoyed this app the most. This is a great app for children who love music. This helps teach younger children to learn songs, letters and sounds that animals make. I like how this app is very interactional app. My daughter just starting learning the BINGO song so she was very excited when she found that this app had it on there. She was going through the app pretty quickly and was able to use it with out any help. This app also let your child record their voice so they can hear their selves. It fun listening to the recording and hearing your child sing the song. This app was by far our favorite one and it was very fun. 
You can find these app on iTunes


SquareHue Subscription Box Review

Disclosure: I received one or more products or monetary composition for the exchange for my honest opinion. I only recommend product that I would use personally or believe would be a good fit with my readers. All opinions are 100 percent my own and may differ from yours. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255: “Guides concerning the use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising.

I have seen around a subscription box called SquareHue. SquareHue is a monthly nail polish subscription box. This subscription box offers three unique premium nail polishes. I was intrigued by this subscription box and was excited to be able to a month of the SquareHue box. 

In the box that I received, I received three different colors in my box. The box was really small and could fit in your mail box. I was concerned how small the box was because polish was inside. I was afraid that the polish bottles would break during shipping and handling. That has happen to me before, but now with SquareHue. When I open my box there where nicely situated and secured in the box. I received the Maui collection. In this collection I received and orange polish that is called Wailea and this is a hi gloss creme, Blue color that is called Ka'ahumanu and is a micro glitter and the last color is a green and this polish is called Ala Moana and is satin. 

The orange is a little bright for my taste, but it is a fun color and you never know. I really am fond of the green and blue color. They fit in my collection well. My daughter is very fond of the orange color and fits her personality well. SquareHue is their own brand and has a variety of different unique polishes. When you order their subscription box you will never get the same polish twice so you will not have to worry. When I read about their company I was impressed that their line of polishes are made in the USA and they are not tested on animals. 

If you love trying new nail polishes than this subscription is for you. SquareHue had a wide variety of different fun collections. The subscription retails for 14.99 a month plus 5 shipping and handing fee. This is a fun subscription with great quality nail polishes that are fun colors. The only thing that I am not sure about this subscription box is that I do not have much control over the colors I get. I would recommend this subscription box if your a nail polish addict. You can find their subscription box at

Adidas Move Pulse Review

Disclosure: I received one or more products or monetary composition for the exchange for my honest opinion. I only recommend product that I would use personally or believe would be a good fit with my readers. All opinions are 100 percent my own and may differ from yours. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255: “Guides concerning the use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising.


This summer I am on the look out for great new perfumes and colognes. I have found a great new perfume for women and a great cologne for men. This summer Adidas has to offer women a great perfume call Moves Pulse for Her and they offer a cologne Moves Pulse for Him.

I received both for review. I will start of with Adidas Moves Pulse for Her. This perfume is available nationwide at your local drug store. This perfume comes in a 1.0 fl oz bottle that retails for about $12.00. This perfume comes in a skinny orange box. When I took the perfume out of the box it was like a triangular bottle. I liked the shape and the cap of the bottle. The cap was an orange color and it was a larger cap to protect the perfume from leaking. I was able to smell the scent of the perfume from taking of the cap. This perfume is a fruity/floral scent. The notes of the perfume have watermelon, grenadine, orange, water lily, sugar, musk, cedar and amber. I really enjoyed the scent to this perfume and is now is on my top ten lists of perfumes. I am really surprised how wonderful the scent is and this perfume is very reasonable in price. 

I also received Adidas Moves Pulse for Him. This cologne is available nationwide at your local drugstore. This cologne comes in 1.7 fl oz and also retails for about  $12.00. This cologne comes in a rectangular red box. The cologne comes in a smaller bottle. It comes in a clear bottle with a nice cap. I gave this cologne to my father and he really liked this particular cologne. He is usually picky when it comes to colognes. This cologne has a mixture of succulent fruits contrasted with sensual woods. The notes of this cologne are green mandarin, pineapple, ocean breeze, exotic fruits, clary sage, lavender, cedar, sandalwood and patchouli. This would make a great birthday gift, anniversary gift or just because gift. 

I was quite impressed with Adidas Move Pulse for him and her. I used to be a huge fan of Adidas perfume when I was in High School, but have not used their perfume since. I would recommend both perfume and cologne. You can find both at your local drug store retailer.

Biore Review

Disclosure: I received one or more products or monetary composition for the exchange for my honest opinion. I only recommend product that I would use personally or believe would be a good fit with my readers. All opinions are 100 percent my own and may differ from yours. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255: “Guides concerning the use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising.


Don't you hate those blackheads? I know I do and I try to find the best products that will help free my pores and help me get rid of those nasty blackheads. I was excited when I was able to try three of Biore products that helped deep clean your pores. Two of the products that I received had charcoal in them. I honestly have never tried any product that contained charcoal in them and was excited to be able to try them. 

The products that I received were Biore Deep Pore Charcoal Cleanser, Biore Deep Cleansing Pore strips, and Biore Self Heating One Minute Mask. Charcoal is a common ingredient found in nature and is know for it ability to draw out impurities and trap them. Perfect for blackheads. 

The first product I received was Biore Deep Charcoal Cleanser and this product comes in a 6.77 fl oz bottle. It comes in one of the bottle with a pump so it easy and convenient. This product draws out 2x more dirt and impurities. This product can also be used for a basic cleanser also. When I tried this product I was quite impressed. I was concerned that this product would not smell good and it would feel weird. I actually liked the scent and it smelled really good. When I applied the product it absorb in my skin quite well and did not feel weird. You can use this product daily if you choose to. You want to pump the product a couple of times so you have enough to work into a foam and put on your face that should be already damp. You want to massage this product all over your face and neck to get decent results. After massaging in the product I let it sit for about a minute and then rinse throughly. After using this product I could see a different in my skin and it looked and felt healthier. 

The next product that I received was the Biore Deep Cleansing Pore Strips. This comes in a box of 24 strips. Biore Deep Cleansing Pore Strips help get rid of dirt, pore clogging build up, and oils. These strips remove these unwanted oils, build ups and dirt and they help prevent the cause of blackhead. I know as a mom I hate blackheads. I know as a mom I am always running errands. I know there have been times that I do not want to leave the house because of breakouts. I try to prevent them majority of the time, but there are days I just do not have the time to keep up with my daily skin care routine. Well I have a great product that was able to help me prevent breakouts and blackheads on those days. I was able to try Biore Deep Cleansing Pore Strips. I was quite impressed on the application process. It was very simple to figure out and apply. What you do is take one of the strips out of the box and package and stick on your nose. How simple is putting a strip on your nose. While I am doing other things to get ready I have strip on my nose. When you are ready to take it off it simple just pull it off. It does not hurt at all and comes off without pain or mess. Afterwards I was a little embarrassed because when you looked at the strip I could see a lot of blackheads. Although the beneficial part they are no longer there.

The last product that I received was their Biore Self Heating One Minute Mask. This product was the most interesting to me. I was excited to be able to try this product. In this package you receive 4 single use packets. This mask helps give you that deep cleaning mask treatment. This product is ver easy to use. This product gives you purified pores in just 1 minute. That is pretty crazy that a product can do that. Before using this product I wet my face and then applied the product. When I applied the product to my wet face you could start to feel that it was heating up. That was really weird but you could feel it working. When applying the product you want to massage the product on your face for about a minute. You will feel that the product is heating up. I really like the feel of this product and the heat. After a minute you will want to rinse the mask of throughly. With this product you will only want to use it 2-3 time a week.

I was quite impressed with the Biore product. I was excited to try the charcoal products because I have never heard of using charcoal in beauty products, but now I can see why. They really do help get the impurities out and help your skin become flawless. I would highly invest in Biore products and recommend them. You can find these products that I mentioned at your local drug store.

Katy Perry Killer Queen Review

Disclosure: I received one or more products or monetary composition for the exchange for my honest opinion. I only recommend product that I would use personally or believe would be a good fit with my readers. All opinions are 100 percent my own and may differ from yours. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255: “Guides concerning the use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising.




 I found another great perfume for the summer. Killer Queen by Katy Perry has been a popular perfume in the last few months. It is one of the must haves. There has been several Killer Queen perfumes that has been released in the past. This Killer Queen Perfume retails for around $59.00. You can find this specific perfume on amazon.com or at your local Sephora store. 

This perfume has an interesting story behind it.  Katy explains 
“When I was creating Killer Queen, I was really inspired by the idea of a strong, confident woman in power and that is exactly what I hoped to put into this fragrance, something that brings out the power inside of you."

I received 3.4 fl oz bottle for review. When I received this perfume it come in a nice bottle. This bottle shaped like a ruby red sceptre. The top of the perfume has a gold topper is shaped like a crown with a Katy's initials on the top. This is not like your normal bottle. It does not stand up straight, this bottle lays on it side. This is one of my favorite bottles that I have ever seen. 

I am very found of this scent. The fragrance is a fruity and floral. The notes in this perfume of Red Velvet Flower, Natural Patchouli Heart, Wild Berry and Bergamot.  This scent is not to strong and it is not to weak with. I would say it right in between. Also you only need to spray once and it will last for hours.

I would highly recommend this perfume for the summer. This perfume would make a wonderful birthday gift or anniversary gift. This is one of the top perfumes that I like and I would recommend it. Remember you can find Killer Queen at your local Sephora shop or on Amazon.

Playboy New York Review

Disclosure: I received one or more products or monetary composition for the exchange for my honest opinion. I only recommend product that I would use personally or believe would be a good fit with my readers. All opinions are 100 percent my own and may differ from yours. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255: “Guides concerning the use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising.


Another great cologne that I found for this summer would be the Playboy New York cologne. This comes in a 1.7 fl oz bottle and you can find this cologne at any local drug store nationwide. Retail price for this cologne is $16.00. 

When I received the playboy cologne it came in a nice box with a graffiti playboy bunny symbol on the box. When I opened the box to take the cologne out it came in a nice bottle. The bottle is a clear square with circular sides. On the bottle there a brick label with the playboy bunny symbol on the the side. I also had to check the top out of this cologne to make sure it was secure. It was kind of tough to get off, but that is they way I like it because it has a better chance of not leaking nor my kids getting into it. 

When I spritzed the Playboy New York I instantly fell for the scent. It was a unique scent and I enjoyed it. The composition of the fragrance is designed for the sensual and elegant men, who love the dynamics and life. This fragrance is a mix of wood, fruit and spice notes that makes the perfect masculine expression. 

This would make a great present for birthday, anniversary, or just because gift for that special man in your life. I am fond of this scent and would recommend Playboy New York cologne for that special man. You can find this cologne at your local drug store near you.
