Review: SkinnyJane Skinny Blend Weight Loss Shake

Monday, May 22, 2017

So, I had a chance to try this Skinny Jane Protein Shake. I never had any protein shake before, and I was glad this was the first one I've tried! Let me tell you why!

First off, it tastes so great! I was able to try the Chocolate flavor, and I super loved it! You have 5 more flavors to chose from - Vanilla, Banana, Strawberry, Cookies 'n' Cream, and Cappuccino, and I know they will all be great tasting flavors like the Chocolate flavor I've tried.

So what's in store for you with this Skinny Blend shake? It claims the following:

  • Mixes Easily
  • Just 90 calories per serving
  • Safe, high-quality ingredients
  • Low Sugar (only 2 grams per serving)
  • 3 grams of healthy fiber
  • 20 grams of protein when mixed with 8 oz. of milk (12 grams per scoop)
  • Increases Energy and Suppresses Appetite
  • Boosts Metabolism and Speeds Weight Loss
  • 30 Shakes per Bag (Just $1.39 per shake)
  • Does NOT contain Caffeine and is Aspartame-Free!

So let us talk about how it mixes easily. All you have to do is mix 1 scoop of Skinny Blend,  6-8 oz. of milk of your choice (I prefer the Almond milk), add 1/2 cup of ice and blend it. If you are in a hurry, you can use a shaker bottle and just shake a scoop of Skinny Blend and 8 oz. of milk for 10 seconds, and you are all set! You can order the SkinnyJane Shaker Bottle along with your Skinny Blend Shake and just add  $9.99. I found it really easy to mix, no hassle!

Although the shake tastes so good, you will be guilt-free since it only has 90 calories and only 2 grams of sugar per serving. Aside from its delicious taste, it gives me energy and suppresses my appetite and control my cravings, I don't get hungry as much and was able to avoid eating junk foods, true to its claims. On my 3rd day of preparing my Skinny Blend, I added a banana to it, and it still tastes good! You can mix it up and try to put fruits on it depending on what you're in the mood for. I basically only go with bananas.😀😁

With the right amount of exercise and healthy food intake plus the SkinnyJane Skinny Blend Weight Loss Shake, you will have that healthy body you've been dreaming of!

Review: INNX 2 inch Ultra Soft Mattress Topper

Saturday, May 20, 2017

Can't get a comfortable sleep with your hard mattress? Maybe it's time to buy a new one or just simply add a soft mattress topper to solve your problem! I found this perfect mattress topper that best fit my needs and helped me sleep well in some way. Check it out and it might be the thing you are also looking for!

Product Details:

  • 57.9"W x 78"L, QUEEN SIZE mattress topper with 2" ultra soft memory foam
  • 12.8 pounds
  • Air Ventilation Designs
  • Removable Mattress Topper Cover

I was so happy to be able to try this mattress topper at a heavy promotional discount in exchange for testing and review purposes. I had trouble sleeping at night and one of the reasons was because my bed mattress was hard and the bed sheet kept on slipping because of the plastic of the mattress. 

When this mattress topper arrived, it came in a big box! It was rolled over in a plastic that came with an instruction sheet. I followed the instruction sheet carefully. I bring the mattress topper out of the plastic, lay it flat on the floor and waited for the maximum 48 hours for the mattress topper to fully rise.

I asked my husband to help me put it on our bed because the mattress was big and heavy for me. Since we do not have an exact Queen size bed, the mattress topper came out a little smaller but just fine to cover the entire side of my bed (My husband side was where if fell short, but he didn't mind). 😀😁😁

I love how soft this mattress topper was! It was so comfortable and it did help me sleep more soundly at night. And since it has air ventilation designs, it won't get as much as hot since the holes in the memory foam will let the air get through more easily and feel cooler during sleep. You can also remove the cover to wash it when the time comes.

Summer season is fast approaching! Is your skin ready and protected from the scorching heat of the sun? New Hawaiian Tropic Silk Hydration Sunscreen will give your face the protection it needs while keeping it moisturized all day long!
I received this product complimentary from Crowdtap, but all opinions are 100% my own.

  • Feels as if it's barely on
  • Breathable formula won't clog pores
  • Broad-spectrum UVA and UVB protection
  • 12-hour moisturization
  • Alluring tropical scent
  • Exotic tropical botanicals

My Verdict:

The first thing I like about this product is the simplicity of the design and the easy-to-use pump of the bottle which you can easily control how much sunscreen you would like to get. It's handy and can be carried around in your bag whenever you are on the go. The sunscreen has a cream-like texture which is yellowish or faded brownish in color. It has a tropical scent perfect for summer. Although I prefer it to be non-scented because I have a sensitive sense of smell, the scent was not bothering at all, and it doesn't linger either, so it was just fine.

The cream itself was easy to apply. It was very lightweight and non-greasy, plus it absorbs quickly. It was smooth in the face and protect you from the sun with its SPF 30 while keeping it moisturized and hydrated up to 12 hours. I have sensitive skin, but this sunscreen did not do any harm on my face. I loved using it whenever I am about to go outside. Because you know, I live in Florida, the Sunshine State where it can be scorching hot even if it's not summer yet. This product has now been my go-to sunscreen. 

Below are some photos I captured when my hubby and I went to the park. The Hawaiian Tropic Sunscreen was so handy, I was able to bring it with me! Enjoyed the sun without being worried!

My first IPSY Glam Bag

Tuesday, May 2, 2017

Okay, I mentioned in my previous post that I love the idea of Subscription boxes. However, I find it expensive. So, why do I have an Ipsy bag? Simple! I got it for free! One of my friends in Instagram always offers to give five free glam bags and fortunately, I got the chance to claim one (or let me say 2)! Yay!

Okay, so, as many of you know, Ipsy was one of those popular beauty product subscriptions, but instead of a box, it comes with different cute little bags each month called Glam Bag. This Glam Bag includes deluxe samples and full-sized beauty products that will be based on your preferences and profile. And it's all for $10.

Even though I heard of Ipsy before, I was not a fan of spending money for subscriptions (yes, even though $10 sounds cheap). But, when I had the chance to try this for free, I got excited! (you know me, I love freebies!)

I am not really impressed of the bag that they have for the month of April. However, I still find it cute and useful of course! I actually do not have any purse for my makeups as of the moment, so this bag came in handy.

I received 5 great products too! My Glam bag include the ever sought after Lisa Frank brush! I guess it's really cute! 

I also received the following sample size products:

Overall, I love all these products! Haven't had time to try them yet, but I can tell that I am most excited to try the nail polish! One or two items on this bag will go to my upcoming giveaway! So stay tuned!

My 1st Walmart Beauty Box - Spring Edition

I am a person who loves free and cheap things. Subscription boxes sound interesting to me, but I also find it quite expensive (because most of them you'll get for $10 and above, yes I know, $10 is already expensive for me). However, I came upon this Walmart Beauty Box going on on Instagram, and I saw how others post about the interesting products they find in their boxes and the best part of it? It's free! Well, technically, the box is free, but you have to pay the $5 flat rate shipping fee. Not bad, huh? Here's what I've got on my first box!
So I received about 7 sample products in my pretty box, 2 of which are sample sizes that you can sometimes get in a magazine, and the rest are travel sizes. I love the variety of the samples inside my box, and I believe it's worth more than $5.

It's also nice how they add a little extra boost for you such as the card (and the carton) that says "Embrace Your Beauty." You can also share your thoughts about your box in your social media channels with their hashtag #walmartbeautybox.

So these are the beauties I received inside!
I love surprises, so I was excited opening the box and was happy to see what's inside! Below is the list of the products I received:

Travel Size Products:
**Colgate Optic White Toothpaste
**Gliss Ultra Moisture Shampoo
**Gliss Ultra Moisture Conditioner
**Dove Advance Care Deodorant
**Biore Baking Soda Acne Scrub
**Sinful Colors Nail Polish in Sweet Tooth
Sample sizes of:
***Rimmel Stay Matte Foundation
***Aveeno 60 second in-shower facial
***Aveeno overnight hydrating facial

So these are the individual photos:

I haven't tried all of these products yet, and some of these will go to my upcoming giveaway. But, as far as I know, these are awesome products! I can't wait for my next Walmart Beauty Box - Summer Edition! Oh yes, this subscription box only comes 4 times a year, a seasonal box that will only be released every Winter, Spring, Summer and Fall. Spending $20 a year ain't bad! Plus you'll have the chance to try products before you buy them! I will highly recommend this!
