Bzzagent Review


Bzzagent.com is a wonderful website that I really enjoy being a part of. By being a member I get to try new products for free and they even ship the stuff to my home at no charge to me. In return I give them my opinions about the products. In the Bzzagent Bzzkit you will find at least one full sized product and a bunch of samples and coupons plus a Bzzguide that introduces the item. I share the samples and coupons with my friends and family and report to Bzzagent (not a typo it is supposed to be buzz without the U) what they think about the product too. 


The Bzzagent website is currently active in the US and Canada. They also have a branch in the UK called Bzzagent.co.UK. Plus they seem to be growing bigger everyday so I wouldn't be surprised if they spread to additional countries as well in the future. 
I have been a Bzzagent for about 6 months now. So far I have participated in 4 "campaigns" (that's what they call the buzzing process) After you sign up to join you will have to answer a classification survey. It's similar to what product testing panels ask you. They ask if you are male or female, how old you are, if you have children and so on. This questionnaire just helps them figure out how to match you to the most appropriate campaigns. It may take a while to match you up with your first Bzzagent campaign. I lucked out and got my first one right away but I have heard that others have had to wait up to 2 months before getting an invitation. When they do match you up you will receive an email inviting you to join the campaign. If you are not interested in the product you can decline, It will not hurt your chances of getting accepted to more campaigns. I have declined a few myself.
 
In Bzzagent.com there is a ranking system and the higher you rank the more testing opportunities you will get. The highest ranked members get the most bzzcampaigns. The ranks are as follows.
 
Tier 1 Solitary Bee
Tier 2 Carpenter bee
Tier 3 Busy Bee
Tier 4 Honey Bee
Tier 5 Social Bee
Tier 6 Sweet Bee

Victoria’s Secret #VSSportBra VoxBox



My Influenster Victoria’s Secret #VSSportBra VoxBox arrived and it was so much better than I even imagined.
Here’s what came…honestly, can you EVER go wrong with a big Victoria’s Secret box?!

Victoria’s Secret Angel Sport Bra – $44.50
Pros

It has a nice design and fit. It minimizes the impact, so you don't have to worry about "bouncy" and achy breasts when running or jumping. The body wick fabric keeps you cool and dry.

Cons

They are expensive. Well, at least for me.

Would I recommend them?

I’m not really sure if I would pay the full $44.50 price for the VS Runway Sport Bra and $59.50 for the pants. But if price is not an issue and you want total comfort and maximum support, the sports bra and Capri pants are great workout outfits to try.


So would I trade my old sport Bra and pants for Victoria's Secret? YES, I would, lol.


This is a sponsored blog post. Influenster provided me with complimentary Victoria’s Secret products to test and review as part of a contest.

Fall: Coconut Oil for Hair and Skin

With summer coming to an end and fall just around the corner, there are a few things you need to do prep your skin and hair. The sun always dries up my skin and hair during the summertime and then the cool air from the fall only adds to the dryness. So you definitely want to make sure you moisturize that hair and skin from head to toe before it really starts getting cold. One of my favorite products to use is something that you can find at your local grocery store and use it to cook with or many different ways on your body. It is the ever-so-famous coconut oil! Find out more about this multitasking product when you keep reading.

I know you have heard about the million different ways you can use coconut oil by now, but in case you haven't, then this post is for you. I am here to tell you that it seriously does work. I love rubbing a small amount all over my body to really get my skin looking fresh and extremely moisturized. You don't have to use a lot to make it work. I usually put it on when I am in the shower because unfortunately I found out the hard way that it can get a little messy and slippery if you use too much. Plus, this way I am already in the shower, so I don't have to clean up anything. You can either rinse it off after you have rubbed it all over or just keep it on and get out of the shower. It will dry within a few minutes and you smell like coconuts for the rest of the day!

You can also use coconut oil in your hair as a deep conditioner to get some moisture back in those locks. I would only use it from the bottom of my ears down to the ends of my hair. If you do it on your scalp, you are probably going to clog your pores and look like a grease ball. And that look isn't very cute.

Depending on how badly your hair needs to be moisturized, I would leave it on for anywhere between 15 minutes to overnight. I usually put my hair up in a shower cap go do things around the house or sleep. When I wake up, I just go rinse it out. Keep in mind it may take a while for it to completely wash away.

There is a lot of other ways to use coconut oil: as a makeup remover, lip balm, or night cream. But all of that is for a whole other post. So don't forget — especially since the seasons are changing — to moisturize, moisturize, and moisturize!

So, tell me what is your fall regiment.

Review: Not Your Mother's Beach Babe #NYMBeachBabe

My friend tried these product out for me. This is her comments.
Beach Babe Shampoo and Conditioner left my hair feeling fuller and softer. It also has a clean exotic beach scent with a hint of coconut. 
I am glad that the shampoo is sulfate free, so be warned ~ they will not produce a lot of lather if you are used to foamy shampoos.  You should not use a lot of this at all ~ the lack of lather is normal and doesn’t mean that it is not cleaning your hair!

Review: Wearever: Health & Wellness Apparel Solutions - Socks


I recently tried Wearever Socks by Buster Brown through Tomoson.com.

Wearever offers 100% cotton socks made by Buster Brown for maximum comfort and durability. Appropriate for those with poor circulation, easily irritated skin, or diabetes, Buster Brown 100% cotton socks are made with no elastic or synthetics. The seamless design of Buster Brown cotton socks with cushioning improve comfort, reduce binding, and eliminate skin irritation. Wearever currently offers three comfortable styles of socks.  


I love these socks! They are the perfect amount of tight. There is room to spare at the top of the socks so they don’t cut off my circulation or leave red marks (like with other socks that can be too tight).
I received two pairs so I’ve washed and worn these quite a few times already. They’ve held up perfectly in the wash and they’re just perfectly comfortable.
They are perfect around the house and under jeans. I love slathering lotion on my legs and feet and then putting these socks on. Your skin is so soft after and it makes these socks feel extra cozy.
I would certainly recommend these to anyone looking for socks that are cotton and not binding.  In addition to WeareverUS.com, I would encourage you to follow them on facebook and Pinterest.com/WeareverUS to check out their entire line of product offerings.

  
I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

Review: #GoPROFOOT - Profoot Pedi Rock


GoVoxBox Profoot Pedi Rock
The Pedi-Rock. I LOVE this thing. 

Any one who wears a lot of sandals in the summer (like I do) knows that heels can get pretty scaly. So that is why I use the Profoot Pedi Rock couple times a week to keep my feet looking good and soft.

The PROFOOT Pedi-Rock is the first soft foot file ergonomically designed delivering the ultimate foot file experience. The silicon carbide crystals gently remove even the toughest calluses in the shortest amount of time. Pedi-Rock can be used wet or dry and simply rinse with water and let air dry for the next use. Keep our feet Spring soft with Pedi-Rock!

This product works great and is reasonably priced. I keep it in the shower for exttra oomph.  It is extremely easy to use, whether your feet are wet or dry. It effectively removes calluses/dry skin while adjusting to the shape of your foot. 

I received this product complimentary from Influenster for testing and review purposes.

Dead Sea Salt Soap Review

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.




I got this product to review-Adovia Mineral Skin Care. This review is 100% unbiased.

I use this product for my body and not face (since I have a set product for my face). This product has a nice fragrance (strong as you open the box but mild and soothing when you use it in the shower).  I love the way it smells and make you feel clean.

The lather was smooth, not rich enough for me, so it could have been better. 

I like that it contains Dead Sea Salt with over 21 minerals.



What I dislike about this product is that it left my skin extremely dry! The value of this product is steep for 1 bar of soap-$11!

Item description:


- Infused with 100% Pure Dead Sea Salts from the Dead Sea
- Dead Sea Salt Contains over 21 Minerals Key to Skin Health and Beauty
- Deeply Moisturizing and Hydrating Soap great for Dry and Normal to Dry Skin
- Dead Sea Minerals Essential to Skin Function Contained in the Soap Include Magnesium, Potassium, Sodium, Zinc and More.
- Great Value and Benefits for A Daily Moisturizing Facial Cleanser

Review: Best Vitamin C Serum for Face by Poppy Austin® with Hyaluronic Acid

Best Vitamin C Serum for Face by Poppy Austin® ★ This Bottle is TWICE the Size of ALL Other Vitamin C Serum Products ★ Contains Hyaluronic Acid Serum and Organic Jojoba Oil. 100% Money Back Guarantee.Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial. <a href="http://www.tomoson.com/?code=TOP1db7ba9988fe0f476840f829d6fe80e8" rel="nofollow"><img style="display: none" src="http://www.tomoson.com/images/front/pixel.png" /></a>

I receive this product through Tomson.com for Poppy Austin. I really like this product. 

I usually use Vitamin C Serum alone, but this Vitamin C Serum has hyaluronic acid in it. I use this product morning and night to get a glowing skin. I carefully apply a small amount Vitamin C Serum to my fingertips and than gently pat and massage it into my face and neck. before I apply my night moisturizer or makeup I allow the product to dry. 

People at work ask me why is my skin glowing? And I told them I use the Vitamin C Serum from Poppy Austin!  I did not have any side affects to this product. 

I will be back to buy once I run out!  

Thank you all for this product.

My Review of Müller Yogurt Crunchy Granola.

I've never heard of the brand Müller vYogurt, until I receive my Influenster Go Voxbox in the mail the other day. Influenster gave me a coupon for a free Müller Yogurt product. So, I went to my local Jewel/Osco store to get my free product. They had different flavors, but I decide to get the Crunchy Granola.



Well, I ate it this morning for my breakfast and it was delicious and nutritious! The first bite, I was like hmmm this is good, I ate the whole thing within minutes!   










I will definitely buy this product again! I would also recommend it to my friend and family!
