Review: Crest Be Toothpaste

Hi, Guys !
Today I'll be sharing my thoughts on the Crest Be Toothpaste line.
I was sent Crest Be Toothpaste line from BzzAgent.
There are 3 different flavors to the Crest Be Toothpaste line. The 3 flavors are Mint Chocolate Trek, Lime Spearmint Zest, and Vanilla Mint Spark.
When I first received these, I was very nervous about using these, especially the Mint Chocolate Trek. I mean, the idea of washing your teeth with chocolate flavored toothpaste did not appeal to me ! And I was not proven wrong. I do not enjoy using Mint Chocolate Trek and the Vanilla Mint Spark. Mint Chocolate Trek isn't as bad as I expected, but Vanilla Mint Spark feels way too thick to me. However, I really love the Lime Spearmint Zest flavor and I would definitely repurchase it once I run out of my current toothpaste.

Have you heard of the new Crest Be Toothpaste line? Have you tried one? Is there a flavor that is appealing to you? Please let me know in the comments! 

Daily Bits:
  • I took a picture of the three toothpastes but that picture dissapear off the face of the earth :( 
  • I have been suffering from headaches for the past week. Any idea how to make it go away? 
  • I tried all four of the finalists for the Lay's do us a flavor challenge today ! I gotta say, there really wasn't any flavor that I felt like did amazing job, though, I decided to save bacon mac and cheese.

Review: The Body Shop Sorbet in Satsuma

Hi, Guys!
Today, I am doing my post on The Body Shop Sorbet.
The Body Shop Sorbet claims to have 24 hours moisturizing power, which I disagree with. It does make your skin feel moisturized right after you put it on, but that doesn't last long. However, it does feel very cool and refreshing.

The Body Shop Sorbet costs $14. It is available in 5 different scents. The different scents are Satsuma, Pink Grapefruit, Strawberry, Morninga and Mango. I ordered The Body Shop sorbet in the scent Satsuma. I am absolutely in love with how it smells !

Have you tried the The Body Shop Sorbet? If you have, what are your thoughts on it? If not, did this post peak your curiosity? Please leave me a comment !

Review: KimbleBeauty Silk Rollers & Slumber Cap

Hi, Guys !
Today, I'll be sharing my experience using two of KimbleBeauty's product.
KimbleBeauty was founded by Kimberly Kimble, a sought after hair stylist in entertainment industry, and sells various hair products. I recently had an opportunity to try two of their product, provided by BrandBacker. I received Silk Hair Covered Rolls and the Slumber Cap.

A look at the products:
 Left: Silk Covered Hair Rollers Right: Silk Slumber Cap

The Silk Covered Hair Rollers comes with 12 individually packaged rollers that looks like this in the packaging:

Both the roller and the cap are covered in silk. It claims that the silk helps the hair maintain healthy hair. The roller also claims that it prevents breakage in the hair. This roller can be used on wet or dry hair.

As for my experience with the roller, I am obsessed ! I used hot rollers in the past, but I was never a fan of them and I don't use them anymore. I recently got into using curling iron, but it has been too hot lately to use heat on my hair. That is this is so great because you can just leave this on for couple of hours and you would still get a beautiful result. This roller is very easy to use and results in beautiful curls.



I love brushing the curls out after a bit, to create more loose waves. This look was achieved after leaving on the rollers for about 2 hours.

Now, one way they suggest using the rollers is to leave on the rollers overnight and to use the slumber cap to make sure that the rollers won't fall off during the night. However, I must say I never try this method and have never used the slumber cap as I don't see the need  for it.

In conclusion, I really loved the rollers! I would recommend it to anyone. I think it is best to use when you have lot of time to get ready, since you do have to leave it for couple of hours to get the result.

The Silk Covered Hair Roller retails for $30 and the Slumber Cap treatise for $25.

  • NYC finally had a sunny day after couple of days of thunderstorm. 
  • I went to Shake Shack yesterday and was a bit disappointed in their burger. Also, it was so freezing in the store yesterday! 
*I received these products from BrandBacker. However, all opinions are my 100% my own.

Birchbox July 2014 & Extra Birchbox

Birchbox is a $10 a month beauty subscription box. Each month is tailored with a theme and you will receive personalize samples. You can sign up here!

Hi, Guys!
Today's post is going to be on my July Birchbox.
This month Birchbox teamed up with Women's Health magazine.
Thus, the theme of this month's Birchbox is Power Up !

Products I received:

  • Beauty Protector Protect & Treat Mask 
  • Benefit Posiebalm
  • NAOBAY Body Radiance Lotion

  • Ruffian The Rapture Collection in Relic
So that's all I got, along with one bonus packet of the Ruffian nail polish remover towelette, free subscription to Women's Health magazine and a packet of list of challenges to participate in for a chance to win their giveaway.

I thought this month's Birchbox had some exciting item for me. I found the Posiebalm, hair mask and the nail polish exciting. However, body lotion and the face peel was leave it or take it kind of situation.

I actually had another Birchbox this month. Birchbox opened their first ever Birchbox shop in SOHO NYC on the 12th of this month. Of course, I had to go check it out ! I convinced my friends to go with me. The store was very nice and was decorated very nicely. I decided to get one of their 'build your own Birchbox.' Basically, you can pick out which samples you want from 5 different categories. Each of the Birchbox that you make is $15.

Here's list of product I picked out:

  • Egyptian Magic All Purpose Skin Cream 
  • Juice Beauty Stem Cellular Booster Serum 
  • Atelier Cologne Orange Sanguine Cologne Absolue 
  • Macadamia Natural Oil Healing Oil Treatment 
  • Jouer Moisturizing Lip Gloss in Birchbox Pink 
I highly recommend that you guys check out the Birchbox store in SOHO if you live in NYC area and love Birchbox. All the people that were working there that I interacted with were very nice. I just loved the vibrant energy of the store! 

Overview of my two boxes:

Check out my video for more detail on each of the products in both of my boxes:
