Short product review + Giveaway winner!

In my last post, I had a lot of products to talk about from Influenster and BzzAgent. I had so many products to review that I didn’t have a chance to try all of them! Over the weekend, I tried two more of the Influenster products- the PRFOOT Triad Orthotic Shoe Inserts and the Aqua Spa Relax Body Creme (Lavender and Chamomile scented).

I wore the inserts on Saturday to do an hour long workout at the gym. I also wore them for a 3 mile run/walk (definitely more walking than running!) afterwards. I didn’t affix them to my shoes because I wanted to make sure they would work well for me, and I’m also going to need new shoes in the next couple of months, so I wanted to be able to transfer them. Since they weren’t affixed, the left insert was a little uncomfortable because I moved it when I put that shoe on. However, besides that discomfort, I really liked the inserts! I liked that they didn’t cover the entire shoe but still felt like they supported my whole foot. They provided a good amount of cushioning, so my feet weren’t sore after exercising. I’ll be using these from now on!

I used the lotion before bed last night. It went on smoothly, and my skin immediately felt softer. I liked the scent, but I didn’t feel like it lasted long enough. I did have a hard time getting out of bed this morning though, so maybe I was more relaxed than I realized! Aqua Spa also makes a bath/shower gel with this scent. I may purchase that to use with the lotion to see if the scent lasts longer.

Now, for the fun stuff! There were two entries to the giveaway- thanks Lena and Clara! I let my husband act as the random number generator since there was a small number of entries. He decided to leave it completely up to chance by rolling a dice. He decided that if it was an odd number, then comment number one (Lena’s) won, and if it was an even number, then comment number two (Clara’s) won. He rolled, and it landed on….

(Building suspense…insert drumroll here…)

Three! Congratulations Lena! I’ll send you a message with the gift card code! If you buy something for that precious baby boy, send me a picture! =)

As a member of BzzAgent and Influenster, I receive free products in exchange for my honest opinion. Lately, I’ve received a few items that are going to help our summer be more fun!

From Influenster, I received the “Go VoxBox.” Here’s what it had in it (ignore the fact that I put everything on the stove to take a picture!).

I haven’t used everything yet, but I’ve enjoyed everything I have used! The shakes tasted a lot better than I thought they would. I did notice that the chocolate blended better than the vanilla. I haven’t tried the berry flavor yet, so I’m not sure how well it will blend. The shaker bottle works well with no leaks or sweating. The lid is a little tough to snap down, but once it’s sealed, it keeps anything from spilling. The almonds were good, but they were a little sweeter than I expected. They may taste better mixed in with plain almonds or another unflavored food. I used another one of the products, but I’ll spare you the details of that! šŸ˜‰ I’m planning to use the inserts the next time I run, so hopefully they’ll help me go lightning fast (ha!).Ā 
Currently, I have four open BzzAgent campaigns: Silk Protein-Fiber Almond Milk, Bic Soleil Glow Razors, Coppertone Clearlysheer Sunscreen, and Summer Favorites at Kroger (which included Honey Mustard and Onion Pretzel Pieces and Rolled Guacamole Tortilla Chips).Ā 
Unfortunately, I didn’t take pictures of any of the products when I unpacked the boxes. Sorry!
The first product I tried was the Protein + Fiber Almond Milk in Original flavor. I have been drinking almond milk instead of dairy milk since February, so I was really excited about this campaign! I usually add my almond milk to coffee, tea, or protein shakes, so I don’t know how this tastes by itself. However, it tasted great mixed in with all of my usual drinks. Plus, the added fiber helped keep me full just a little bit longer. And, not to be TMI here, but it didn’t do anything funky to my stomach (hey, that’s important info to know!). The only downside was that I couldn’t find this in Publix, so I had to go to Kroger for it, which can sometimes be a not-so-fun experience. I’ll definitely buy this again!
The second product I tried was the Soleil razor. Like most women, I find shaving a pain in the leg (instead of a pain in the neck…get it…heh). Now that it’s warm out, I have to shave even more often, so I’m glad I had the chance to try the Soleil razor because it lasts longer than the double blade store brand razors I usually use! The Soleil has three blades, which I didn’t think would make a big difference, but it does. It seems to give a closer shave that lasts just a hair (ha) longer than my other razors. It also has a lubricating strip with Vitamin E and aloe, so your legs get a little extra moisturizing when you use it. That’s never a bad thing!
The third product I tried was the sunscreen. I received two different types- Clearlysheer for Sunny Days and Clearlysheer for Beach and Pool. Since I haven’t had the chance to go to the beach or pool yet this year (BOOOOOO), I used the Sunny Days formula. It went on light and had a good odor; I was glad to have a sunscreen that didn’t smell like coconuts or that had a telltale “sunscreen smell.” I tend to break out a lot in the summer also, but this sunscreen didn’t make me feel like my pores were clogged. I’m not always the best about remembering to put on sunscreen, but I’m going to make more of an effort since I have a good one to use now!
The fourth and fifth products I devoured tried were the pretzel pieces and tortilla chips. Okay, here’s my confession. I’ve been doing a couple of challenges at the gym since the end of January, and I’m supposed to be eating cleaner. All of the clean eating went out the window during the three days it took me to destroy these snacks. Oops! There’s nothing healthy about these snacks, but they would make a great side for cookout food or a good afternoon snack. I also received coupons for Big K soda and Kroger Deluxe Ice Cream, but I haven’t redeemed those yet.Ā 
I know this was a pretty long post, but if you’re still with me, take a moment to enter the giveaway and then take more than a moment to purchase one or more of these products!
