dailygoodiebox

I recently found out about Daily Goodie Box from a friend. This company sends you free samples at absolutely no charge in exchange for your honest opinion of the products. You are not required to enter a credit card it is absolutely free. Each box contains a combination of full and sample size products for you to try out. To receive a Daily Goodie Box, you just go their site and answer a few questions. Whether or not you receive a box is based on several factors. Once you receive your box you simply log on and let them know what you thought of the products. Here is a list of the products I received in the March 2017 box.

Pipcorn Popcorn Mini Sea Salt . I like that it is a healthier snack, but there isn’t much flavor. I don’t think I would purchase it even though I really love popcorn. 

Gertrude Hawk – Peanut Butter Meltaway Bar. I really like this peanut butter chocolate bar. It has a really great chocolate flavor and the peanut butter is really creamy.

True Natural – Benecos Natural Beauty Lip Gloss. The shade I received is rose garden, it is a purple pink color. This lip gloss goes on really smoothly and has great coverage wear. I really like the creamy texture.

Bhakti – Yerba Maté Chai Artisan Tea. I received fourteen tea bags in a lovely metal tin. The smell of this tea is amazing and tastes better then it smells.

Miss Jones – Organic Cookie Mix. I really like that this cookie mix is organic. All you need is one egg and a stick of butter, along with this mix to make yummy chocolate chip cookies. I like that the directions are easy to follow. I will definitely buy these soon.

Elemental Herbs – All Good Organic Skin Food. I applied this after my bath. This coconut oil made my skin feel so soft and smell so good. I did not feel greasy, just silky smooth. This is a great way to prevent dry skin.

Savant Naturals – Savi Crisp Chocolate Protein Bar. This protein bar is more like a sweet afternoon snack then a protein bar. I love the taste and texture of this bar.

Wild Foods – Cocotropic, Chocolate Nootropic Drink. I really like how you can add this to water, tea or coffee for a sweet addition. The taste is really good but not to over powering.

RunGum – Energy Gum. I am a huge fan of this performance gum. I used it before my daily run and felt like it gave me added energy. The taste is ok, not a big fan. I will purchase this for my future runs.

Älsa – Energy Drink Mix.  I like the easy to carry and open packaging. I can carry them with my throughout the day and add to my bottle water.  The taste is really good and very flavorful. A great low calorie addition to your diet!

 

 

 

Fitness Finds from ProSource

 

Fitness, for me, is not just about the workout, but overall muscle health. I need to have a positive mental state so that I will have the will power and want to better myself. I experience aches and pains from my many different types of workout routines. I always like to switch things up so I will not get bored. I am unaware of what is causing my discomfort and pain so I am not sure how to treat it. That is why I am always on the search for any tools or massages that can help to relieve my pain. I can’t afford a professional message after each workout or yoga session. That is why I am glad I found ProSource! They have a wide variety of foam rollers, massage balls, arched back stretchers and acupressure mats. I highly recommend trying them out.

Ginger Detox Water Recipe

lemon-giner

Ginger is a powerful detoxifier that can increase your metabolism. Lemons are also considered to be a detoxifier, since they have a natural diuretic that helps to remove toxins from your body.

  • 2 lemons
  • 2 inch (5cm) ginger root
  • 1 quart (1 liter) spring water

Grate the ginger and cut the lemon into wedges, then add them to a pitcher. Refrigerate for three hours before serving. Add ice if desired.

Lime Mint Water Recipe

lime-ment-water

Water that is infused with lime is a good way to boost your metabolism. Limes contain a lot of vitamin C which is also good to prevent colds. I love adding this water to my diet no only for the detox benefits but the health benefits as well.

  • 2 limes
  • 2 quarts (2 liters) sparkling water
  • 1/cup fresh chopped mint

Slice the lime into thick slices and place at the bottom of pitcher. Then pour the sparkling water and add chopped mint. Cover and refrigerate for at least three hours. Strain the liquid before serving.

20161229_151004_resized

I received this wonderful box of teas from Simplicity Teas. Simplicity Teas is a monthly subscription box  ($14.99 a month) that allows you to taste test each tea- for tea lovers they recommend the Tea Enthusiast package. Each purpose themed package comes with three to four .5 oz specialized loose leaf teas. Your first package comes with a unique tea infuser. Each package is created with an intention in mind such as optimized digestion, beauty, detoxification, or getting the best sleep of your life. Each tea is organic, hand curated with herbs to provide a specific purpose (besides just tasting great!) to help improve a certain facet of your life and help you reach your health goals. Discover new and exciting flavors of teas! Simplicity Teas are created in small batches, packaged with love and each package provides you with roughly 15-20 cups of tea.

I really love the Simplicity Tea box because I am a huge tea drinker and love to try new combinations. I love how they have different blends for morning and night. They also have Sweet Tooth Pleaser that tastes like gingersnaps but without all those calories. The Good Choice tea is great to help curb your appetite and reduce those snack cravings. I really enjoyed try all these wonderful teas.

I received this L’Oréal EverPure Volume Influenster VoxBox to test and review. I must say I really like the results of the L’Oréal EverPure Volume shampoo and conditioner! My hair is really fine and does not have much volume. So, when I get a chance to try any product that will help add volume to my hair I must try it. I really see a huge difference in not only the volume but the texture of my hair. I really feel that I have achieved a huge amount of volume that lasted all day without falling. The EverPure Volume Shampoo and Conditioner with lotus flower gently cleanses and revives fine, flat hair infusing luminous shine and boosting body without the weigh-down. Color-treated hair requires special care. Their formulas are especially gentle on color. There are no harsh sulfates, salts or surfactants that can strip, dull and damage hair. Experience a purely sensorial lush, luxurious lather and a fresh aromatic fragrance that blooms. Pure respect for your hair.  *No animal derived ingredients or by-products. Formula not tested on animals.*

*I received the product(s) for free/complimentary to test and/or review*

Shaveology Rich Anti-Aging Shave Lather Review

IMG_2347

Shaveology is a proud supporter of Soldiers’ Angels. They use their business to raise awareness, support and money for our veterans. “May No Soldier Go Unloved” encapsulates the motivation behind Soldiers’ Angels. The volunteers of Soldiers’ Angels work tirelessly supporting our nation’s veterans, wounded warriors, deployed service members and their families

This shave lather/cream has a blend of natural extracts and is infused with Golden Seaweed. This not only smells wonderful but protects and hydrates the skin while the lather helps to form a barrier of protection that helps you ensure the perfect shave. I know that this product is labeled for men but I thought I would give it a try to see how smooth I can get my legs. I know that not all razors and shave cream/lather are the same. I love silky smooth legs and knew I had to try this. I was truly impressed by the closeness of the shave I can achieve with this product, plus my skin is so smooth. I am over all pleased with the results and would suggest this to anyone men or women who truly want a close smooth shave.
