Crowdtap sampling: Mrs. Meyer’s Clean Day Honeysuckle Body Wash

Through Crowdtap I was able to sample Mr Meyer's products in the past, like her fabulous Basil Hand Soap and Lotion. This time I was really lucky and  I got a sample of her scent Honeysuckle. Those who know will know that I love, love the scent of Honeysuckle and so this body wash by Mrs Meyer's is like a dream come true for me. Showering in the morning is now maybe taking a little bit longer, allright a add an extra 5 minutes just to soak up some more honeysuckle time. In addition to the all natural ingredients, Mrs. Meyer's body wash makes my skin feel soft and smooth and it gives me my daily honeysuckle treatment. What is not too like about that? That being said, although I find it heard to believe, I know some people do not like the scent of honeysuckle. If you happen to belong to that group, beware that the scent is strong. So maybe stick with some of the other scents from Mrs Meyer's like Lemon Verbena, another one of my favorites, or Basil. Actually, it is hard for me to think of a scent that I do not enjoy from Mrs. Meyers. If you are open to honeysuckle or like me enjoy the scent, then you need to try out this product! You will definitely enjoy the honeysuckle sweetness to get you started in the morning.

Crowdtap Sample: Almay Healthy Glow Makeup + Gradual Self Tan!

Through Crowdtap I reeived a sample of Almay Healthy Glow Makeup + Gradual Self Tan, a product that acts as a make up with self-tan built in. You apply the product everyday and while normally removing it in the evening and wearing it during the day, within a week it shows its magic by giving you a tanned skin.
For people like me that have really sensitive skin in the face, wearing makeup is a must or on a windy day, the face will be red like a tomato from just exposure to sun and wind. The sensitive skin is also a problem when tanning since sunburn is happening easily and so the skin stay pale. But with Almay Healthy Glow Makeup + Gradual Self Tan, I can wear my usual makeup and then even get some color in my face. it is a win-win for me. I applied the Almay Healthy Glow Makeup + Gradual Self Tan every day for days, never noticing any irritation and after 7 days, I even had some color in my face. I love the product and the ability to now have a more healthy glow in my face.

Crowdtap sampling: Revlon ColorStay makeup


Thanks to Crowdtap I received a whole makeup set from Revlon that included:
Revlon ColorStay™ 2-in-1 Angled Kajal Eyeliner
Revlon ColorStay™ Cr√®me Eye Shadow
Revlon ColorStay™ Brow Pencil
and Revlon Super Length Mascara.
I was able to quickly come up with nice makeup for the eyes in my usual morning routine and the best part of it was, everything coordinated perfectly and the creme eye shadow was probably the real winner. it was really easy to apply, gave a nice neutral look to my eye and still was makeup that pulled my look together.  In the morning, I do not have a lot of time, so have everything together in one set was perfect and coming up with colors that are neutral and perfect for work was nice.

 So if your morning is as hectic as mine, get some of these Revlon Color Stay products and get ready to apply perfect looking eye makeup everyday in no time.

Crowdtap Sampling: Silk NEW Protein Nutmilks

Through Crowdtap I was able to sample a new product (for me) from Silk which contained Almond milk. It was unsweetened and was not reduced in fat or sugar and certainly not in flavor.I used it over fresh strawberries, but also in smoothies because it tastes like regular milk, has more calcium and for someone who is often the only one drinking milk on a daily basis, has a long shelf-life. I picked my sample up in midApril and the self-life was until mid-June. Not that it would last that long in my household, but it is nice to know that it lasts a lot longer than other milk. It can be useful to know this long expiration period if you take milk to store in the fridge at work and a gallon is difficult to get through, Silk is a great alternative.
