Curel Intensive Healing skin savior!!

I recently received a free sample of the Curel Intensive Healing Cream from BzzAgent to try out, below is my review:

At first I was hesitant about the new Curel Intensive Healing Cream, thinking it could do no more than what I was getting with my current lotions. I always have really dry skin, and the skin on my hands, knees and elbows have always been tricky areas for me. No matter what I had tried in the past, nothing worked to relieve my dry, itchy skin. And my hands were my worst area. With my job I am constantly typing, so I can't have slippery hands from a greasy lotion that slide all over the keyboard, and I can't have tacky hands that are hard to move or stick to the keys. Since it has been so hard to find a lotion that can keep my skin moisturized without feeling sticky or greasy, I more times than not opt not to put lotion on my hands, which in turn makes my hands even worse. My skin often gets so dry that it ends up cracking and then I have sores which really hurt, especially when you use your hands so much! So, needless to say I had lost almost all hope on finding a lotion that can satisfy my needs, and because of this I was a bit skeptical in trying this lotion. But, boy was I wrong! After just 1 use I could already feel the difference in my skin. I have to admit that it felt a little tacky going on and was worried it was too thick and would end up like ones I've used before, but I figured after receiving such a generous freebie I would give it some time and a real chance to work. I thoroughly massaged the cream in and after a few minutes I could feel it had just soaked right into my skin. What was left was beautifully moisturized skin that didn't feel tacky or oily. I could not get over how soft and moisturized my skin looked and felt.  I used the Curel cream on my hands, knees and elbows, all rough patch areas for me, and all of my normally trouble areas are now smooth, soft, and healthy-looking! I have been using the Curel cream now for a few weeks, and I can tell a major difference in the appearance of my skin. I liked it so much that I even went out and bought a large jar to keep on hand. Curel Intensive Healing Cream is going to be stocked on my shelves this winter because of my horribly dry skin in the cold months. I'm glad I was chosen to try out the Curel Intensive Healing Cream, it has truly been my skin savior!

I am a BzzAgent and was provided with  free samples of the Curel Intensive Healing Cream to try and share my opinion and spread the buzz! This in no way affects my review, as I am 100% honest about my findings!

Benjamin Moore Aura Piant Review

If you haven't yet heard about or tried the new Benjamin Moore Aura paint, let me fill you in. I was given a chance by BzzAgent and Benjamin Moore to try out the new paint, and I am impressed. Benjamin Moore makes high quality products and the new Aura paint does not disappoint, it is exactly what you would expect out of one of their products. This product is absolutely top of the line. The new paint boasts a wonderful selection of hundreds of shades of color, low odors, a paint and primer all in one, and it dries in lightening speed. Okay, so maybe not lightening speed, but pretty fast and because of this you can get your painting projects knocked out quicker than you could with competitor products so you can go about knocking things off your improvement projuects. You will get a professional look and feel because this paint really does cover everything, and usually in 1 coat. I really do highly recommend this paint. The price tag can give you somewhat of a sticker shock, but if you want it done right the first time, I would say Benjamin Moore Aura paint is the one you should choose. Another benefit of this paint is that it is very easy to clean and environmentally friendly, which is always a plus. As a mom and dog owner, I know fully well the amount of stains, markups, and scuff marks that can be put on a wall, and you'd be surprised. With the Benjamin Moore Aura paint cleaning is a breeze and you don't have to worry about the paint coming off when you scrub because this product is truly durable. I tried a test run of how easy it is to clean 2 days after we finished painting, and I was impressed.

All in all, I would recommend Benjamin Moore Aura paint to the people out there who aren't afraid to spend a little bit of money to get something done and get it right the first time. You will definitely be happy you made the investment!!

Kiss Nail Dress

I received a package of Kiss Nail Dress from as part of my Love VoxBox that I got a few weeks back. I received these to try them out and give my honest feedback about them. I tried these and I have to say that I absolutely love them! They really give a professional look without the big price you would pay at a salon. They are perfect for busy moms as a quick pick-me-up or as a instant way to dress up for your last minute night out. The Kiss Nail Dress sticks are super quick and easy to use. They also come in a great variety of colors available, you're sure to find something to suite your style. I would recommend using a clear topcoat polish that really helps secure them and extend wear for days. I believe they are definitely worth the price without the guilt that often comes from spending money on yourself.

In summary, the Kiss Nail Dress sticks are right up my alley and I would recommend trying them out for yourself, I'm sure you'll be as equally impressed as I was.

Here is some more information regarding the product:
Kiss Nail Dress
Fashion That Sticks
Introducing Kiss Nail Dress, ultimate nail fashion for tips and toes! Just peel, apply, and shape for a manicure that lasts up to 10 days. On in minutes, off in seconds without remover. Nail Dress is available in 18 different styles, many of them featuring 3-dimensional jeweled designs. Check out Peplum, a deep black with multi-colored gems for a pop of color, or Babydoll, for a golden and glamorous jeweled look. Skip the topcoat, Nail Dress has it built in.

With 28 strips in each package, you can cut up your extras to create designs that can be used on top of polished or artificial nails. Nail Dress doesn’t dry out the way other polish strips can, so you can save them to use on your next DIY mani. A nail design booklet is included in each package, just in case you need a little inspiration.

And don’t forget about your feet! Nail Dress looks awesome on toes, too – just use the square side of the sticker for a perfect fit.

Look at what the FedEx man brought me today:

This is from a program back in October 2011 through Proctor & Gamble where you spent $25 or more in a single transaction of qualifying products, mail in the receipt and form, and they sent you this. I guess this year the response to this was overwhelming, so they ended up sending me a post card at the beginning of the year saying it would be delayed. After coupons and store discounts I spent less than the minimum $25 on the participating items and then they send me this for free! Make sure you're on the lookout for it again this year as this is the second year I've had the opportunity to participate in this awesome program!!

Venus & Olay Razor

I recently recieved my Love VoxBox from and boy was I super excited to find a Venus & Olay razor inside. I have always been a fan of Gillette Venus razors and after trying this new razor just reaffirmed my loyalty to the brand! I really love this razor! Over the years I have tried many razors and none have come anywhere near to giving me as close of a shave as I get with my new Gillette Venus & Olay. It really leaves my skin soft and smooth after a shave, and it really does smell great. It has that Olay scent that we have all grown to know and love.  It also has to be mentioned that they give you a great little holder to hang it up in your shower for convenient storage (just make sure if you have little ones that you hang it up high enough so they don't knock it down or grab for it).

In summary, Gillette has really done a great job creating and perfecting the razor system. My only wish is here to hopefully see this razor come in different scents. I really love the smell, but I think having a few choices would be great!!

Here is some information that I wanted to share about it, but If you would like to check it out for yourself, visit 

Venus & Olay Razor
For the first time ever, Gillette Venus, a global leader in female shaving, and Olay, a global leader in skincare, are coming together to deliver a gold standard in shaving with the new Gillette Venus & Olay razor.

Olay Moisture Bars help lock-in moisture to your skin for less dryness, and with every smoothing stroke, Venus’ five blades shave you close.

Playtex Sport Feminine Body Wipes Review

Recently I was able to receive Playtex Sport Body Wipes to try out and share with friends. Those of you who got a sample from me know what I'm talking about and feel free to share comments and/or feedback in the comments section. I personally tried these and really liked them. There are a lot of moist wipes out there and in my opinion it's about time that a company came out with ones specifically designed for women. After using them I felt fresh and clean. They are great after a bike ride or playing outside with the kids, when you don't have time to get a shower immediately afterwards. I found these very useful and I definitely plan on keeping a couple of these in my purse and in my car. I liked the scent and I really like how convenient they are. Thank you Playtex for coming up with such a great idea!!
