Lise Watier Hydraforce Protective Comforting Creme Review #GetintheBubble



Recently, I had the pleasure to try and review for free Lise Watier Hydraforce Protective Comforting Creme. Glam Sense Topbox sent me a bottle of creme and a electronic gadget that detects my moisture content.

Bye Bye Diapers


I would say when my daughter turned two, she showed interest in potty training.  My husband and I invested in a potty and she was sitting on it no problem.  Even though she didn't do anything on it, it was still there for her to try.  Then, she lost interest not too long after.  Didn't want to go near it and eventually it collected dust. 

We have bought different kinds of pull up diapers but she had a hard time pulling them down or didn't know what to do with them.  I also found her legs were not fitted right in the pants and we had leaks.  I did find Huggies Pull-Ups to be the best fitted for her.  Training pants are more costly than diapers so we used them for the daytime and regular diapers at night.

COVERGIRL BzzAgent Review

 
 
 
 
 

I haven't been wearing foundation as part as my beauty regiment. Instead, I have been using Olay BB cream tinted moisturizer.  As much as I like the Olay BB cream (now discontinued) I forgot what foundation does to my face.

BzzAgent and Covergirl gave us a choice for free to try:
  • Clean Oil Control
  • TruBlend Liquid
  • Covergirl + Olay Simply Ageless
  • Outlast Stay Fabulous 3 in 1 y in the fabulous zone to last all day
  • Outlast Stay Luminous
I chose Outlast Stay Luminous because I wanted naturally radiant skin but then received an email to chose another.  I then picked Covergirl Clean Oil Control in 505 Ivory.

The only disadvantage is that its hard to get out of the bottle.  I have to keep it upside down so I can get a better flow.  I would prefer it as a pump like the TruBlend or Luminous line.

My skin isn't really oily so I couldn't tell if it absorbs it but I did notice the moisturizing effects.  The foundation gave my skin an even tone look unlike my BB cream.  Another pro is that I need very little to cover my face therefore my bottle lasting a longer time.  The colour matched my skin to a tee.  I hate buying a product that doesn't match my skin.

All in all, I would not purchase this product as I don't need oil control but definitely another item from the Covergirl brand.  I buy almost to all my makeup from them.

Clearly Better Secret Clear Gel Deodorant


I received two samples in the mail from Bzzagent for free to try.  I gave one to my friend and the other I used. 

The cocoa butter kiss compared to the lavender is ten times better.  The lavender was a little strong compared to the cocoa butter.

The gel went on wet but slowly dried up and kept me dry for the longest time. 

I did lots of things that required deodorant and not one instance did I notice it not working:
Gardening
Camping
Cleaning my house without air
Hiking, swimming deep in the bush
Working


My friends review was: "I thought this product was good.  it had a pleasant smell that wasn't too strong.  The product went on smooth and did not leave any white marks on my clothes.  It wasn't sticky and it dried quickly.  It kept me dry for at least 24 hours but the smell of the deodorant lasted approx 8 hours and so I had the perception that the deodorant wasn't working because I couldn't smell it.  I would purchase this item especially for the soft scent.  I was fortunate enough to be able to product test this for a friend."

I wished I had a bigger sample to keep on using but I would definitely purchase.

Secret Outlast Clear Gel Deodorant BzzAgent Campaign

 
 
Thinking back to all the antiperspirant/deodorants I have tried in my life; I have never tried a gel deodorant.  The closet to one is a roll on clear liquid.
 
BzzAgent and P & G sent me Secret Outlast Clear Gel deodorant to try for free.

The container is translucent so you can see right through the bottle. It is very cool to see how much you have in the bottle.  The only problem with it is there isn't that much in it.

I love the strip piece that goes across the top of the bottle.  I think all deodorants should have it.  This tells me no one was messing with it in stores.

When turning the knob to get the gel out, I found each time a different amount would come out.  Sometimes more would come out, sometimes it would take two or three clicks to get the gel out. 

I like the cooling feel when applying. It doesn't take long for the product to dry on the armpit. I do not care for the ooh-la-la lavender smell but they come in different scents.  I think it works well.  I can do my daily chores, shopping, working and wake up next morning feeling fresh. 

I would clearly buy this product again.  There is also high value $1.50 on SmartSource for any Secret product and $1.00 on P&G everyday website.

Pantene Pro-V Ultimate 10 BzzAgent

Picture from Bzzagent.com 


I've used Pantene in the past but not an avid user.  I was invited to a BzzAgent campaign to receive free, full size Pantene products.  In the mail, I received 2 huge bottles (1 shampoo,conditioner) and a BB creme for styling.  This line of hair care is called Pantene Pro-V Ultimate 10.  It covers 10 hair solutions to your problem. The top ten are:


"1) Repair for Rough Hair 
2) Strength Against Damage
3) Silky Softness 
4) Brilliant Shine 
5) Smoothing 
6) Moisture 
7) Frizz Control 
8) Heat Protection 
9) Manageability 
10) Tamed Flyaways "




Ultimate 10 Shampoo

The bottle itself is stylish.  I like the gold and it does not stray from there other hair care line. If you went to the store you would instantly recognize its a Pantene product.  Using it for over a month; it did cover most of my issues.  I do not use a blow dryer or a straightener so I cannot vouch for that part.  My hair is soft, frizz free and looks healthy. It also smells nice. Online at Walmart, the 375 mL costs $4.96, 675 mL costs $6.94.

Ultimate 10 Conditioner

As the shampoo, the conditioner participates in the 10 solutions for any haircare issue.  The smell is nice;  it is not overpowering and smells like any Pantene that I have smelt. I did use more conditioner then any other conditioner that I've used in the past.  The conditioner instantly soaks into my hair leaving it soft.  I would purchase and recommend the product.  Retails same price as the shampoo.

BB Creme

Love it! At first I thought it was supposed to be used in the shower as a treatment.  When I read the bottle plus my sister informed me otherwise its to be used post shower. I do use more than a few pumps because I have lots of hair.  My hair looks great. I did notice less frizz and distinct curls. I no longer need additional products to achieve my look which is cost effective. At Walmart, it retails for $4.96.

I have yet to check Target prices. I notice P&G is in favour of Target and I absolutely love target.  If you would like a coupon, click here. All in all I would continue to use this product and purchase in the future.

Broadway Nails- A Quick imPress Manicure

In the mail I received two little nail polishes bottles from Influenster for free to try.  Inside each of these bottles are 24 #imPressnails from a company called Broadway Nails. I heard of press on nails but never tried them myself.  I've seen them in stores but thought it would be too much work and they would be very long and cheap looking.

BzzAgent

I've been a BzzAgent since December 3, 2012.  Wow!  I thought it was less than a year but looking at my account it has been that long.  If I'm selected, I get to try products for free based on my answers from short surveys and availability to Canada.

Twitter Wins

I love Twitter!

At first, I was like what is all the hype over twitter?  Who would you tweet too, why you want strange people following your profile, what can you possibly do on it?
