Tone, Celebrate Your Skin Review!

What it is:  

New Tone Moisturizing Body Wash in  Pink Peony and Rose Oil.  With vitamin E!

My Review!

This body wash is better than your average body wash.   First of all, the container is beautiful and feminine, and pretty enough for the shower.  The scent of the body wash is very flowery, which is perfect, given that the winter is almost over and the spring is coming and that's what it reminds me of.  A small amount of this body wash makes tons of rich lather, enough to wash everything.  The scent lingers long after the shower and the body wash does not leave the skin dry, but rather moisturized. Would I recommend?  Sure! This is a great body wash, perfect for every day use.

Sally Hansen #CSMTKO

My Thoughts:

I received the #CSMTKO voxbox from Influenster.  It was a wonderful voxbox that contained three full sized nail polishes from Sally Hansen's Total Knock Out collection, in three different colors.  It is a one-in-all nail polish.  

The three colors I got were:

- Red My Lips
- Jaded
- Pat on the Black

According to Sally Hansen, there are 7 benefits in one bottle:  “base coat, strengthener, growth treatment, color, top coat, chip resistant, gel shine finish.”

For this review, I am trying the nail polish, in the shade "Jaded."

The color is that of a minty green.  The color is very pretty, I applied two coats for an opaque look, but with one more coat it would have been a solid mint green.  I was very impressed, because the nail polished dried quickly, so I was able to finish my manicure faster than I usually do.  Then, a couple of days later, the color was still there, just as the first day.  After a a week, the color was a little chipped, so I just applied a new coat and it was good as new!
Conclusion:  Very good nail polish, drys quickly, lasts forever, beautiful shades.  Will definitely recommend and buy again.

U by Kotex Sample Review

Thanks to Crowdtap, I was able to try some of the U by Kotex products. I received:

- A beautiful zipper tin container
- Two U by Kotex liner
- Two U by Kotex sleek tampons with instructions included
- Generation Know bracelet
- Info card (not pictured)

There was an extra to share, which I gave to my sister-in-law to try out. 

My Thoughts:

The tin container is so cute and convenient.  It can be used to conspicuously carry all your Kotex feminine products, or if you'd like, makeup, money or whatever. I've loved Kotex since I first started needing feminine products.  U by Kotex products are fun, girly, and most importantly, keeps you safe and comfy during that time of the month! The tampons are more for a lighter flow. The packaging is cute and convenient.  The are sleek, and they come with a rubbery holder at the base of the applicator for a safe, secure insertion.  The liners are great as a compliment for wearing along with the tampon.  The liners also come individually packaged and are so thin, you don't even feel it.  And lastly, the Generation Know bracelet, which is a bracelet that represents "the first generation of girls to get the facts about their bodies and share that knowledge to create social change" as per card insert in the bracelet.  Very cute string bracelet with green, pink, yellow and black strings and a cute charm that reads 'I know'.  U by Kotex always has been and will continue to be a favorite of mine.

Venus® Embrace Sensitive Review

Thanks to Influenster, I was able to get the Venus® Embrace Sensitive for free for purposes of this review.

Features of the Venus® Embrace Sensitive:
- Designed for sensitive skin.  
- Five razor blades.
- With a touch of aloe.

My Review:

Let's talk a bit about my skin type.  I am the type of person that gets razor bumps and ingrown hair if I shave with the wrong razor.  Which is why I prefer epilating most of the time.  This is especially true for my underarms.  Now, on to the razor: the Venus® Embrace Sensitive razor came with one handle and two separate cartridges.  The shaving experience with this razor was awesome. The razor is easy to handle and use.  No cuts and no razor bumps.  It's been a couple of days since I used it and so far no ingrown hairs in the underarm area, but sometimes ingrown hairs can appear later.  My skin is not irritated as with other razors that I've tried in the past.  I did not find any cons using this razor, so far so good!


I think the Venus® Embrace Sensitive lives up to its claims.  So far it has really worked for my sensitive skin.  I would buy again and I would recommend this razor to those who also suffer from razor burn, ingrown hairs, or overall skin irritation after shaving.
