There are a couple beauty related items that I will post a full review at a later time. In the meantime, here is a breakdown of what I received and a quick review of the things I have already tried.
Ghirardelli Gourmet Milk Chocolate invites you to "Experience a moment of timeless pleasure with all natural Ghirardelli Gourmet Milk™ chocolate." I had already tried this chocolate prior to receiving it in this sampler box and I wasn't disappointed to receive it. The chocolate is smooth and creamy and definitely lives up to the Ghirardelli standard you'd expect.
Gillette Venus and Olay Razor is the newest razor product by Gillette. I've been a fan of the Venus razor since the day it came out and I'm a huge fan of Olay. I was excited to try this product.
This razor is suppose to lock in moisture while you're shaving with the Olay moisturizers. I'll test this out further and let you know how it fairs.
I was a little disappointed to open up my sampler box and see Truvia inside. I am not a fan of natural sweeteners because they always taste chemically and end up causing health problems in some form or another.
Truvia is calorie free, made with natural ingredients and is supposed to bake and brown like traditional sugar. I did give this one the benefit of the doubt and tried it in a couple of glasses of tea.
I found that while it does sweeten well and does not taste as chemically as Sweet N Low, the fact that it's made with natural ingredient-s such as erythritol bothers me. Excessive consumption of erythritol is known to result in digestive upset, diarrhea, gas and bloating.
That being said this product is suppose to be a good alternative for those with diabetes. I, however, will be sticking with pure sugar.
Stash Herbal Tea is another product I was kind of disappointed in receiving simply because I rarely drink hot tea. I've had this brand before and liked it but I tried a couple more cups from this sampler for good measure.
I really like that they sent the sampler with caffeine free teas. I try not to drink caffeine, especially at night. The tea is good, like I remembered from past experience, with my favorite flavor bring the cinnamon apple chamomile.
I didn't dawn on my until yesterday afternoon, that I could probably drink this tea cold. It doesn't say anything about it on the box or website. Do you happen to know if you can drink any teas hot or cold?
Kiss Nail Dress was another product I was kind of disappointed in simply because of the design I got. I'm 31 and I work in an office, how am I suppose to try out hot pink zebra stripes for a week?
Thankfully I had this past week off work and was able to try them out. I'll have a full review on these later.
What are your thoughts? Have you tried any of these products? Did you like them?
