Coca-Cola Life (Bzzagent Review)

Time for another product review but before I start with my personal opinion, let me tell you a bit about this item.

Coca-Cola Life is a product that originally launched in Argentina and Chile in 2013 and has now finally been distributed throughout other countries. It is sweetened with Stevia and cane sugar and is said to be lower in calories than the original Coca-Cola.

I was excited to be receiving this product to test out as I am a Coca-Cola fan however I was skeptical on what it might taste like. I do not mind sugar free products as long as they taste like the original. So soon as it arrived, I placed it in the fridge and waited a few hours til it got cold.

The time was set and it was ready. I grabbed my glass, filled it with ice and slowly poured the contents of the glass bottle into my cup. Took my first sip and I was highly impressed. I couldn't tell a taste difference between this and the original and for me that was a win. With that said, I let my hubby try a sip (he always chooses coke over Pepsi) and he said it's just as good as the original as well. So Coca-Cola Life is a winner in this household! We will definitely be purchasing it again especially since we got some coupons along with it.

Influenster Calvin Klein Voxbox

This was a suprise and fun package to receive as i had no clue that i was selected to participate in this voxbox round.

I go check the mail like any regular day and inside was this small silver bubble envelope. Right away I'm trying to remember if i had ordered something and just forgotten about it as i was expecting any delivers. Then I see it's from Influenster and it says calvin klein on the outside label, so that got me excited.

I go inside, open the package and find a sample of Reveal Calvin Klein Men cologne and a card wallet. I was slightly bummed that this was for my husband to use and not I but hey if he's smelling good, then I guess that's benefiting me as well haha.

The scent is good, kind of hard to really explain though. It's a touch of freshness with some floral and masculinity thrown in there. The more it sat on the skin the stronger it became but not too overpowering that you just wanted to wash it off.

As of right now it's a Macy's only exclusive item but will be available nationwide this coming April.

Influenster Frosty VoxBox Review

A new year and a new start to some fun exciting products thanks to Influenster. To be honest, I had given up on receiving anything from them as it had been months since I got my last product testings. Then low and behold, I get that little questionnaire email and a while later a fun package arrived at my door.

So let's get down to business, shall we? Here are the products received in the frosty box...

1. Celestial Seasonings Candy Cane Lane Green Tea ($3.85 per 20 pack): At first I wasn't too sure what to think of this based on the description. Turns out it's really good and doesn't have a weird taste like some green teas do. I would buy again!

2. Boots No. 7 anti-aging face cream ($22.99): I haven't tested this out yet but I wish they had given a bigger sample so we can really see if it makes a difference. For the price it's selling, it's just too high for me to jump in and buy it from a tiny sample pack.

3. Red Vines ($1.00 per 5oz bag): All I'm going to say is... this bag was done in 10 min haha

4. Rimmel Eye Makeup Remover ($3.99 per 4.2 fl oz bottle): I'm almost out of makeup remover, so this came in perfect timing. Tried it once and it worked great. Removed everything without leaving a streaky mess behind.

5. Eco Tools Styler & Smoother Hair Brush ($10.99): So let me tell you, a week before this arrived I was saying I need a new round brush as mine had slightly burned from the blow dryer. Works great, doesn't get tangled in hair. Pretty much does what it's meant to do.

6. McCormick Gourmet Thyme spice ($4.99 per .62 oz bottle): I love using spices in my cooking, so I was really excited to try this one. Smells good, tastes great. Nothing else needed to say!

7. Rimmel Eyeliner ($4.29): I love this eyeliner, it's waterproof, smudge  proof and long lasting. Nothing I hate more than having to keep reapply a liner throughout the day because it wears off. A+ in my books for this product.

8. NYC Lipstick ($2.00) : Love the color, it glides on smoothly and lasts quite a few hours. Very impressed and for the price you can't beat it.
