Bzz Review for Maybelline Baby Lips and Lots of Lashes Mascara


Oh my word! I was very impressed when I got to use the Baby Lips for the first time. They are affordable and give really good moisture. They last long on your lips and give you such a good color. The mascara is AMAZING! I can defiantly see a difference in my lashes, they have more volume to them and they are longer and fuller. LOVE THESE PRODUCTS!
I have done a previous review for Boiron on their Arnicare Gel, you can find that review by scrolling down. Their website it All ratings are out of 5 stars. I was sent this product for free. 

Boiron Chestal Cough Syrup (with a honey base): ***** 5 out of 5 stars 

Upside- Fairly inexpensive, Helps relieve any type of cough, non drowsy, homeopathic meaning no counteracting and no drug interactions 

Downside- Nothing 

Bottom Line- I had a terrible cough and took this and the next day my cough was not as bad in fact it was almost gone. I highly recommend this product!

Rose and Mint Massage Oil- ***** 5 out of 5 stars 

Upside- Very very softening to the skin, smells amazing, the smell is not too strong and not too overpowering, Organic massage oil, The rose and the mint are equal to each other (Like the mint doesn't smell stronger than the rose or vice versus) 

Downside- The only bad thing that I guess I could see with this is that it dries quickly, and if you're using it for massage purposes that's not really a good thing. Also there's no list of ingredients listed. 

Bottom Line- If you're using this for massage purposes and want an oil that dries quickly GET THIS! If you want a massage oil that doesn't dry quickly, this isn't the right product for you. 

Moroccan Glow Facial Masque- **** 4 out of 5 stars 

Upside- After using it, My face overall looked better as far evening out my skin tone. Made of Organic materials. The smell is pretty neutral which is good because alot of facial masques have strong scents that are overpowering!

Downside- It's kind of hard to apply and turn the powder into a paste like consistency. 

Bottom Line- This is did start to even out my skin tone, so I'd say take a whack at it! 

Gorgeous Green Facial Masque- ***** 5 out of 5 stars 

Upside- Versatile (Meaning this one mask helped me with getting rid of blackheads and the redness on my face) , Great for Red and/or Sensitive skin, Organic 

Downside- Like I said earlier, it was a little hard to turn into a paste. 

Bottom Line- This one not only helped get rid of my blackheads but helped my red, sensitive skin too! 

Taj Mahal Facial Masque- *** 3 out of 5 stars 

Upside- Organic, Smell isn't that bad compared to most face masks, Made of Organic materials 

Downside- This one actually made me break out, while I'm not 100% sure why, I"m pretty sure it was the Myrrh powder. Had to turn from a powder to a paste like consistency. 

Bottom Line- If you don't have a Myrrh powder sensitivity, then you should be fine. 

Lotion Bar in Lemongrass Love- **** 4 out of 5 stars 

Upside- Love the smell (They come in different scents) Very soft to your skin, absorbs fast, not sticky and doesn't give that weird feeling that alot of solid lotion bars do. 

Downside- It melts really easily in your hand (Or it "falls apart" easily). It's hard to get out of the container and it's hard to even open the container. 

Bottom Line- I really like this lotion bar, if it wasn't as soft, I'd love it even more.

Upside- The smell wasn't too strong or to faint, These wicks are VERY easy to light, 100% natural soy wax, wicks are made out of cotton and paper, I really like the jar that it came in. 

Downside- Nothing

Bottom Line- If you like Cinnamon then go for it! 

Mocha Espresso- ***** 5 out of 5 stars 

Upside- This one is defiantly a little stronger than the others but I like that "feature" so if strong scents bother you, I would skip this one. I opened this candle up and let it sit on my desk and within I'd say 30 mins it filled my room with this great smelling candle. (The candle was not lit at the time). Again the 100% soy and wicks being made out of paper and cotton. And I really like the jar.  

Downside- Nothing

Bottom Line- If you like strong coffee scents this one is for you!

Creamy Vanilla- ***** 5 out of 5 stars 

Upside- This one is faint to me, but this is perfect for people that are very sensitive to scents. It's a really nice smelling vanilla. It's unique, I've never smelt a vanilla like this one before. Again their made of 100% natural soy wax and the wicks are made out of cotton and paper. And I really like the jar!

Downside- For someone who wants a stronger scent this is not for you.

Upside- They smell exactly like watermelon! Very fragrant too!

Upside- Smells really good, Very moisturizing, absorbs into skin fast, Very creamy and soft

*I just talked with the owner and she said that has reformulated her lotion and basically filters it so that there are no black things in the lotion! :)

Upside- Melt easily in your hand, small convenient shapes and sizes,

Miracle Skin Transformer (MST)
This is one of those products that I just couldn't wait to review. I've tried so many tinted moisturizes it's ridiculous. This one is defiantly different (in a good way). Here's their website All ratings below are out of 5 stars.

Bottom Line- I love this product and would recommend it! This is an excellent tinted moisturizer for the summer or anyone that wants light to medium coverage. It made my skin almost flawless and glowy. It leaves your skin super smooth and soft. Again it's very moisturizing. I've never used a tinted moisturizer that is that moisturizing. I absolutely love this product! I will buy a full size soon and I really want to try their conceal and treat, so if you guys are interested I'll write a review on that.

Rockin Green Soap
I've been trying to find an eco-friendly laundry detergent for a long time! I finally found one that I actually LOVE, not like LOVE. They come in so many different scents and they come in 3 different rock types for whatever type of water you have, Soft, Classic and hard rock. Soft rock is for soft water, Classic rock can be used for really any water so if your unsure of what water type you have choose Classic rock, and hard rock for hard water. (They have a map on their website to show what type of water you have depending on where you live...Here's the map ) Here is Rockin Green's website All ratings below are out of 5 stars. 

Rockin Green Laundry Soap in Lavender Mint Revival- ***** 5 out of 5 stars

Downside- I can't really smell the Lavender, I can smell the mint but the lavender is very faint. 

Bottom Line- I would so recommend this product! I will be buying more!!! I LOVE this and it gets rid of stains so well!

Also if you don't want to buy a big thing of detergent you can buy a sample which for High Efficiency washers is good for 4 loads and for regular washers it's good for 2 loads. The samples are only 85 cents! Can't beat that!!

Here's their website-
Skoy is one of my favorite companies so far. Their products are amazing and are ridiculously absorbent. I received a 4 pack of their skoy cloths. They can be used to wipe down countertops, tables, etc. You can sanitize them by putting them in the microwave and when it gets dirty you can throw it in the washer. And the best part is their biodegradable.  Here's their website www.skoycloth

Skoy Cloth- ***** 5 out of 5 stars

Upside- Their reusable, You can wash them, They last about 5 years. Their biodegradable. They absorb alot. Great for sanitizing the kitchen and cleaning up spills (pretty much anything you would use a paper towel for this is great for!) 

Downside- Nothing

Bottom Line- Yes I would recommend this product. One of these squares represents the same absorbency as 15 rolls of paper towels, not 15 sheets, 15 rolls! This can save so much paper going into the landfill. I mean seriously, This is a great product for anyone wanting to save the planet. Again these are reusable, and typically last for around 5 years. You can't reuse 15 rolls of paper towels for 5 years, but with the skoy cloth you can!

Ananda Apothecary
I was sent 5 different essential oils to review. I will be reviewing all 5 essential oils together because I don't see the point in reviewing them seperatly as they perform the same. Here's their website www.anandaapothecaryBergamot, Ylang Ylang, Vetiver and Peppermint. *I picked these oils out myself* 

Essential oils- ***** 5 out of 5 stars They are all very strong, fragrant and concentrated. I have used all of them at least once. The smells match the name and description.  

Bottom Line- Yes, I would recommend these essential oils to others. Out of all them my absolute favorite is Bergamot. Bergamot is citrusy smelling and I love it! And I don't typically like citrusy smells.

Thoughtfully Thrifty Product Review
I was a sent a jar of coffee scrub with honey! The jar was reused and it had ribbon around it tied with instructions and ingredients. Links to her etsy site will be below and all ratings are out of 5 stars below. Also Nikki cleared this with me Don't worry about the coffee grounds it's totally safe for them to go down the drain. 

Coffee, Sugar, and Cocoa Body Scrub- ***** 5 out of 5 stars 

Upside- It's very exfoliating. Nice smell (Smells like coffee). Makes your skin super soft. I feel like it adds moisture to your skin. Can use alone because of the honey which has antibacterial properties so you don't even really need to use soap. 

Downside- Kinda messy, But what scrub isn't messy? 

Bottom Line- I'm in love with this product. And I'm not lying. I LOVE IT! It makes your skin as soft as a baby's butt and I mean that! It exfoliates fantastically. It is a little messy, but c'mon guys lets get real All the other scrubs I've tried have been pretty messy too, so it's a minor setback. I love it and I'm sold!

Lavender Bath Salts- ***** 5 out of 5 stars 

Upside- I love lavender and these bath salts are amazing. They have little actual lavender seeds in them. And they just create this unique calming atmosphere that is hard to recreate. 

Downside- Nothing

Bottom Line- I would recommend this product to others! If your not a lavender fan, No worries.....She all sorts of different scents....Pick your favorite!

Jasmine Lemongrass Coffee Scrub- ***** 5 out of 5 stars

Upside- Very good exfoliater. I really enjoyed it. Yes, I only used it one time and Yes I haven't seen any results but it works as an awesome exfoliater. 

Downside- Couldn't really smell the Jasmine or Lemongrass. 

Bottom Line- This is an amazing scrub. The benefits of coffee are endless but just to name a few ;) Helps increase circulation, Diminishes cellulite and varicose veins when used religiously.  I really liked the smell even though I couldn't smell the Jasmine or Lemongrass. To me it smells like coffee (duh) and cocoa butter.

Meadow Muffin Product Reviews
Here are 5 product reviews from a great and fabulous shop called Meadow Muffin Gardens. All the labels on all the products are "waterproof" Their not made out of paper so you can wipe them clean if they wet or dirty and you can still read how to use, ingredients, etc. Links and coupon code will be at the bottom of the page. 

Rose Water Astringent Facial Toner-  ***** 5 out of 5 stars 

Upside- Can be used as toner or as "touch up" spray, Comes in a very convenient small spray bottle so that you can take it with you wherever you go 

Downside- Nothing

Bottom line- I used this product on my face as a touch up and worked out great. It really did tighten my pores and helped with oiliness. I would recommend this product to anyone with oily skin or in need of a touch up every once in a while. You can also use it as an astringent and I got my sister to try it out and she loved it! Also neither my sister or I had any problems with it drying out our skin but please use as your own discretion. 

Ingredients (in order)- Water, Alcohol ( 100% proof), Rose petals, Rose absolute, Witch Hazel.

Cleansing and Deodorizing Dry Shampoo-   **** 4 out of 5 stars 

Upside- Comes in a small, convenient spray bottle, Clear spray so great for darker hair :), Doesn't weigh down your hair and make it even more oily, The first thing I smelt was the Rosemary, sage and a hint of alcohol, so to some good smelling. Good for touching up or a pick me up. Does a good job at deodorizing. 

Downside- It doesn't actually absorb all the oils in your hair. 

Bottom Line- When you use this it doesn't weight down your hair, but it doesn't actually absorb the oils so I would recommend that you use this in conjunction with baby powder or cornstarch. But I defiantly think this is great for deodorizing and is very good used as a touch up. 

Ingredients (100 proof alcohol)- Essential oils- Rosemary, Sage, Sandalwood. 

Plantain Coconut Balm- **** 4 out of 5 stars 

Upside- Great for areas that need extreme healing like elbows, knees, etc. Makes rough spots feel softer. 

Downside- Not a huge fan of the smell, Doesn't absorb as quickly as I would like it to. 

Bottom Line- This product has Plantains it in and is the first thing I smell. Also if you hate the smell of coconut but still want it's awesome benefits.....GET THIS! You can't smell the coconut at all! But again not a huge fan of plantains, but will continue to use this product. And on a side note I can't smell the chamomile. It's a green smooth balm which is great for dry areas. 

Ingredients- Plantain-infused Olive oil, Coconut oil, Beeswax, Chamomile essential oil, Vitamin E. 

Serenity Moisturizing Cream-  ***** 5 out of 5 stars 

Upside- Smells like lavender (very nice smelling if you like lavender) Very moisturizing. Good for sensitive as I have extremely sensitive skin and it didn't break me out even when I used it on my face. Very creamy and light consistency in jar. 

Downside- Nothing

Bottom Line- This is a cream so in the jar it's light, smooth and creamy but once you put it on your hands and it turns to this thick cream which I like. Again it's very moisturizing and smells like lavender. I really like this cream for my hands. I have used it on my face and it worked out fine and I have really sensitive skin. And also in this product I can't smell the coconut oil. And I would most defiantly recommend this product to anyone!

Ingredients- Almond and Hazelnut oils, Coconut oil, Water, Beeswax, Lavender and Sandalwood essential oil, Vitamin E. 

Cocoa Butter Body Bars-  ***** 5 out of 5 stars 

Downside- Nothing

Bottom Line- I would totally recommend this product to all of you guys! This little bar is amazing and so versatile. You can use it to moisturize your body (just like you would lotion) or use it as a lip balm. It comes in the shape of a star so it's the perfect size to travel with you. I love this little bar! I recommend it to all of you!! 

I just want to thank Stacy from Meadow Muffin Gardens (or on etsy meadowmuffin2010) for sending me these products to review for you guys! She's awesome and very sweet and nice. Go check her website out!!

Similasan Sleeplessness Relief 
Simlasan is a homeopathic brand that has been around forever. This specific product retails for around $ 12.00 in most drugstores. This product like the title says acts as a night time sleep aid. I've used tons of sleep aids before (because of my severe insomnia) with  no luck.  This one however worked! You get .529 oz which is roughly 154 doses. They are little globules which look like this  You just take 7-10 pellets (that's what I call them), put them under your tongue and let them dissolve. In my case this medicine worked within an hour. It may take longer for some people. You need to let the pellets dissolve completely. Do not swallow the pellets. Just leave them under your tongue. You don't necessarily have to put them under your tongue, but let me tell you why that's a good idea. First if these pellets are just sitting in your mouth it's easier for you to swallow them as opposed to them being under tongue. And secondly when their under your tongue they will be in effect faster. Here are the Active ingredients (in order): (homeopathic) Avena Sativa 12X, Hepar Sulphuris 12X, Pulsatilla 15X, Zincum valerianicum 12X. Inactive ingredients: Calcium Carbonate, Xylitol (sugar free) 

Here's a very helpful chart on understanding the dosage (12X, 15X, etc.) of homeopathic medicine:

Kiss My Face Ultra Moisturizer in Peaceful Patchouli

I bought this lotion (4 fl Oz)for around $4 on I have really really dry hands and I needed a good moistruizer preferbly one without parbens. This one is paraben free. I used to use the Dial Nutriskin in dry skin and after my shower I would have to put 5-6 "coats" on my hands because again their so dry. I would have to reapply it so often again around 5-6 times (that's what I mean by coats). So when I used Kiss my Face I reapplied it twice and that's it. I'm not kidding with you. Twice. This moisturizer is so creamy and rich. I can't even describe it. I can tell it really sinks into your skin deep. The scent is a little strong, but if you like patchouli you'll like this lotion. I personally don't care for the scent, but I've gotten used to it. I will be ordering a bigger bottle of this lotion, but in lavender this time!

*Just because I like/don't like a product doesn't mean you will too!*
