Review: Ozeri Serafino Double Wall Insulated 16oz Glasses.


So in the midst of my spring cleaning (yes, I know it is summer now but this is going to be a process!) I decided that I wanted to also update my items. So out with the old and in with the modern!

These Ozeri Serafino Double Wall Insulated 16 oz glasses really make my dinners look a lot more fancier! These glasses are tall enough to hold just enough of whatever you are drinking and are shatter resistant. The double wall keeps your hands from getting hot when drinking a hot beverage and it also keeps the glass free of condensation when drinking a cold beverage.

I have long been a fan of the Ozeri brand and so far all of the items that I have tried from them have met my needs and none have cracked, broken, shattered, or anything of that nature.

You can get the glasses on Amazon for $29.95 for a set of 2 or $59.95 for a set of 6. Both include free shipping for prime members. Also I must mention that Ozeri always packs their items very well for shipping and none of my items have ever arrived in less than spectacular condition!

If you have any questions about these glasses or any of the other Ozeri items I have reviewed in the past feel free to let me know!

July 2014 Birchbox Unboxing & Review!

View my Unboxing Video and then come back and read my post :)











Overall thoughts: I give this box a rating of 5/5. Box is worth well over $10, plus they finally are including what are deluxe size samples in my opinion.





Inside the box is:

1.) Benefit Cosmetics Posiebalm | I love this lip balm! It hydrates my lips very well and adds a bit of color to my lips. I wish the sample was a bigger though, the packaging is deceiving.  Full size, $18

2.)  Harvey Prince Hello Body Creme | I got a perfume sample of this scent last month and loved it so much that I was super excited to get this lotion. Nice size sample to fit in my purse. Full size, $22

3.) Ruffian Rosary Nail Polish & Bonus Polish Remover Pad | The nail polish is a nice gold/metallic/pink color. You only need one layer to get the full color but it does chip pretty easily so I suggest doing a second layer anyway. As far as the remover pad goes I did not like the scent or that it dried out my nails! Full Size, $10 for Polish & $12 for a set of 10 Polish Remover Pads

4.)  Vasanti Cosmetics BrightenUp! Enzymatic Face Rejuvenator | I have not tried this yet but it smells pretty good. I am always excited to try out new skincare products! Sample size was great also! Full Size, $34

5.)  Agave Healing Oil Treatment | This was the "Beauty Extra" but it is just a foil packet sadly. I will give it a chance though. Full Size, $34

This months box was partnered with Women's Health Magazine so we also got a free One Year Subscription to the magazine!







Is this box worth $10: Yes! The Magazine Subscription alone is $10. Plus most of the products were deluxe samples!
Is this box worth my $10: Yes. I already subscribe to Women's Health and love it so I am excited to have another year added on to my subscription. Plus I am getting use out of all of the items this month!

Disclaimer: These opinions are my own and I was not asked, nor do I get compensation, to review the box or these items.

Dial Coconut Water Refreshing Body Wash Review & GIVEAWAY









Review:

I really enjoyed the smell of this body wash. It really did smell like a mixture of coconuts and mangoes. Some scented coconut products are really overwhelming but this did not have an overwhelming scent at all!

The Body Wash itself is infused with moisturizes and I did not even need to put on lotion after my shower. I always put on a lotion after a shower at night, but when I shower during the day I do not like to put on lotion because I am usually in a hurry to get dressed and do not like the way it feels when I have to wear pants to work and it is already really hot so it is nice to have a body wash that provides hydration!



Giveaway:

One lucky reader will receive 2 coupons for a FREE bottle of Dial Coconut Water Refreshing Mango Body Wash! See the Rafflecopter below. All entries are optional but the more you do the better chance you have of winning.

July 2014 Popsugar Must Have Box Review

Please watch my unboxing video and then come back and read this post :)









The Popsugar Must Have Box is a subscription box which costs $39.99 per month, BUT all the products you get are full size and the boxes are always worth more than $100! If you love getting surprises than this box is for you!









The items in the box:

1.) Michael Stars Beach Hat : Do not hate the hat but it is a tad big for my head. I will try to wear it at some point. I wish it was not the big item in the box, but it does not break the box for me either. Value: $48

2.) French Bull Ziggy Salad Servers: These are so cute but I do not really host parties or have a need to dish out salad. My boyfriend and I just dish it out with a fork. I have not decided if I will keep these or not. Value: $12

3.) Sun Bum Sunscreen and Lotion: I love that they gave us both sunscreen and aloe lotion! I will for sure use these and I have never tried the Sun Bum brand so I am excited. I am also glad that they do not expire in less than a year like the one they gave us last year. $20

4.) ACME Party Box Company Chevron Straws: Once again these are cute but I do not have parties or really anyone over for drinks so I am not sure when I will get around to using these. Maybe when I live closer to people or have a nicer place. $7

5.) TKO Jump Rope: This item made the box for me. Finally a fitness item that I do not have AND can use! I love the soft grip handles and the color of the jump rope! $13

6.) Dang Foods Toasted Coconut Chips: These were SO good. I wish the bag was bigger. They are already all gone, unfortunately. I also wish they sold them around me but the closest place is about 30 minutes away and I never have any reason to actually head out that way. I have seen them online but you do have to buy in bulk and I do not have the funds for that at the moment. $3

7.) Revlon Bold Lacquer Length & Volume Mascara -  This is the special extra this month and I am super excited. I have never tried a Revlon mascara. I am also happy that the extra is an item and not a useless gift card coupon! I hope we do not get any more mascaras for a few months though because I probably have about 10 of them at the moment!


This was a really good box. I am happy with it and do feel it was worth my money. I wish I could get more use out of some of the items but I am sure if I hold on to them I eventually will. I will also try to make the hat work but we shall see! Once again, can not wait until next months box!


Total value of the box: $110

Review: Azure Naturals ULTIMATE VITAMIN C Serum


Finally a Vitamin C serum that shows results in just a few weeks. This can be used as an anti-aging product, but since I am not (noticeably) aging yet I do not see any youthful results in that regard, but it does help clear up blemishes and sun spots! Discolored skin? No more! On top of that it also prevents future sun damage. It also reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. 

The serum felt nice on your face (no oily residue) and it came with both a dropper and a pump nozzle so you can pick whichever you prefer. I prefer the pump personally. The smell is not terrible but it does not have a perfume like scent either.

What I loved most about this product is that it has high quality ingredients, is made in the USA, AND has a ONE YEAR 100% back money guarantee if you do not like the results. Finally a company that CARES about its customers! The company will refund the price of the product and the shipping no matter where you purchased the product.

I love products where the company takes care of you. Being honest and and faithful TO me is what makes me honest and faithful to a company.

You can purchase the product on Amazon for 19.95. It is fulfilled by Amazon and it is free shipping for prime members.

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: Adovia Mineral Lift Facial Serum


I typically look for one product that will replace a few products. I hate having three products that each do one thing taking up shelf space (shelf space that I do not have much of as it is). Also, remembering (and just gathering enough energy) to use all of the products each night is a miracle. I loved the Adovia Mineral Lift Facial Serum because it is a multitasker!

This serum combines Vitamin C, Dead Sea Salt, and Green Tea that is skin lifting, moisturizing, and non-oily. It also provides 21 minerals for healthy skin.

I loved that this serum was heavy enough to also be moisturizing but was also not too thick and was not oily. The smell was very light and was non-existent once you applied it to your face.

I am in my late 20's so while I can not really tell how well it worked on anti-aging, I can tell you that my skin appears a lot brighter than it has before using this product for 30 days. My skin also has not broken out as much.

You can purchase the product on Amazon for $49.00 (with free shipping). Although the price may scare you just remember that this one bottle takes care of all your Vitamin C, Moisturizer, and Anti-aging needs and it also has the added bonus of Dead Sea Salt and Green Tea which are supposed to do wonders for your face and reduce puffiness under your eyes.

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: Ozeri 5-Piece Wine Bottle Corkscrew & Accessory Set (Great Gift Item)



If you are stumped on what to give someone for their next Birthday or Holiday why not change up the practical bottle of wine for a Wine Bottle Accessory Kit. Most people do not own kits like these and while they do not need them 100% of the time they can come in handy!

The Ozeri 5 Piece Wine Bottle Corkscrew & Accessory Set comes with a stainless steel corkscrew with foil cutting knife, a drip stop collar, a combination wine pourer/stopper, and a foil cutter. 

The Kit comes in an easy to open (once you get the hang of it and learn to slip your nail in the middle) wine bottle shaped packaging. You can either keep the bottle on your counter or store it on a wine rack, either way you will not lose track of all the tools! Even though the kit is only $16.95 on Amazon all of the tools were very well crafted. The corkscrew was also very easy to use, which I can not say about ALL corkscrews that I have tried!

I have used this quite a few times and have even lent it out to someone to use for the night and it makes the night much easier if you are entertaining a lot of guests.


This will for sure to be a go to gift when I am doubting what I should get an acquaintance or the next time I need a secret Santa gift!



You can purchase the Set for $16.95 on Amazon.
