PRODUCT REVIEW: Olay Fresh Outlast Body Wash in White Strawberry and Mint

PRODUCT REVIEW: Olay Fresh Outlast Body Wash in White Strawberry and Mint

I have always been a fan of the Olay brand of products.  I’ve used them for decades (not that I want to date myself by any means!)  I like that they make my skin feel silky and moisturized.  I like that they have a pleasant scent as well.  I like that they are moderately priced making them an affordable option when selecting personal hygiene products.  I like a lot about Olay.The White Strawberry and Mint body was was no exception.  I left my skin feeling silky and moisturized, though still clean as well.  However, the strawberry scent was a little too sweet.  It reminded me a lot of the scent of a lip gloss I used as a kid.  The girls loved the body wash and always wants it with their bath.  Even the boy’s wanted to try it out!  Personally, for me, I’m not a fan of food scented […]

PRODUCT REVIEW: Grillin’ Goodness with Johnsonville Grillers

PRODUCT REVIEW: Grillin’ Goodness with Johnsonville Grillers

With friends and family I get together almost weekly to grill, spend time together and let the kids play.  I was very excited to be included in the Grillers campaign. I’m a member of the Crowdtap Johnsonville Grillers rewards program, and Johnsonville sent me a sample of its Grillers to review.  With friends and family I get together almost weekly to grill, spend time together and let the kids play.  I was very excited to be included in the Grillers campaign. When we purchased them we actually purchased more than one package in order to feed all of us, thereby giving me more of a base of tastes to review with. The first thing we discovered was that they cooked a LOT faster than the directions on the box.  Thank goodness there was so much else going on the grill (cannot cookout without the corn on the cob, fruit, veggies, […]

PRODUCT REVIEW: Aveeno Protect + Hydrate Lotion Sunscreen with Broad Spectrum SPF 30

PRODUCT REVIEW: Aveeno Protect + Hydrate Lotion Sunscreen with Broad Spectrum SPF 30

I had the opportunity to try Aveeno Protect + Hydrate Lotion Sunscreen with Broad Spectrum SPF 30 and really liked it. I have been a fan of Aveeno for a long time and the Protect + Hydrate Lotion Sunscreen did not disappoint. Suffering from very dry sensitive skin and excezma I am leery of mixing up my skin care routine as some products are more irritating than others. And we all know that mixing things up too much can actually cause reactions, though usually short term. Aveeno is a brand I have used for many years without any adverse effects. That being said I’ll actually delve into the Protect + Hydrate Lotion Sunscreen. First and foremost I loved the scent. It had a fresh, clean smell that was someone reminiscent of sunscreen, and therefore the beach, but was ‘cleaner’ and lighter. The only drawback from application was that it initially […]
