PB Crave Review

PB Crave Peanut Butter

Who would think that peanut butter would be exciting to eat? I recently had the opportunity to sample all four flavors of PB Crave, and I was amazed at the flavor of this delightful peanut butter.
With fun names such as Coco Bananas, Cookie Nookie, Choco Choco and Razzle Dazzle the product line intrigued me. What is so great about this product is that it is gluten free and all natural with no preservatives added. One would think that an all-natural product would have that grainy texture, but this does not at all. I am glad because I could never have guessed it could have been so tasty! Let us talk about each jar for a moment so everyone can get an idea of what this peanut butter is like.
     At first, I thought that Coco Banana would be my favorite, but the Choco Choco flavor reigns supreme for myself. The chocolate and peanut butter mixed together is the greatest combination I have ever tasted. Together, the two flavors dance harmoniously on my palette. PB Crave mixes in peanut butter with real Belgian chocolate chips, milk chocolate chips, and wild honey. Personally, I thought that it would have more of a chocolate taste, yet it balances equally through the product.

     Next, I tried the Coco Banana since I love banana and peanut butter sandwiches. These two together are like a marriage and should never be separated! The thought of Coco Banana which has a blend of banana flavoring, cocoa, and wild honey excited me. When I first put a good amount of it in my mouth, I expected it to jump out at me with banana flavor, and it takes a moment for the banana flavor to hit you. What makes this flavor even better is the cocoa in the PB Crave peanut butter, which compliments the banana flavor nicely. I wish it had more cocoa in it, but then again, I love chocolate so no amount is too small.
    As a child, I always loved to eat cookie dough and I would beg my mother to leave me some to eat. Nowadays, we know about the possibility of salmonella contamination. Therefore, when I heard PB Crave came out with a cookie dough peanut butter, my childhood memories came to me! The Cookie Nookie peanut butter has chocolate chips, cookie dough flavor, and wild honey. Now you can enjoy it with your peanut butter! The flavor of the cookie dough is present, and blends well with the peanut butter, yet not overpowering.
    Lastly, The Razzle Dazzle has wild honey, white chocolate, dark chocolate, and natural raspberry flavoring. If you love raspberries and chocolate together, you would enjoy this peanut butter. The natural flavors are blended together with a noticeable raspberry flavor. This flavor has potential for a unique aspect on sandwiches and baking!

    The amazing concept of adding non-traditional flavors to peanut butter is well executed by PB Crave! They manage to produce an all-natural product that not only lacks preservatives, gluten, and boring flavors, but also is a true premium product. Another great reason to purchase the PB Crave brand is they are attempting to save two million lives by the year 2015 by joining with Project Peanut Butter. This is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing RUTF for malnourished children. If you would like to purchase some, it is available right on their website at http://www.pbcrave.com.

Bath and Body Works Shimmer Mist Review

Bath and Body Works Shimmer Mist

The Bath and Body Works Shimmer Mist is a blend of sparkling red pear, vanilla orchard, and whipped chiffon musk. I really like this shimmer mist. However, it tends to leave a slight sticky film on your skin. If you put lotion on first and then the shimmer mist, I find that it does not leave it as sticky. The scent is not powerful but it is elegant. One thing to remember is the product is alcohol base so it does dry very quickly. The formula is thick therefore; you do not need to spray a ton. I do not recommend spraying it on your clothes as my daughter did and when I went to wash those, sparkles were all over the washer and it did not come out of the clothes on the first wash. The Shimmer Mist leaves behind a nice amount of sparkle and lasts a long time. You do not have to keep re-applying to maintain the sparkle. I like to compliment the Shimmer Mist with the Bath and Body Works Pink Chiffon signature collection fine fragrance mist. This collection is fun, flirty, and elegant!

Maybelline Color Tattoo By Eye Studio

Maybelline Color Tattoo by Eye Studio is one of my favorite eye shadows thus far. This cream gel eye shadow lasts for 24 hours.
I have to tell you that it does last for a very long time. I have not left this eye shadow on for 24 hours but did notice that you do not have to keep re-applying it if you put it on in the morning and want it to last until nighttime. The color is very vibrant and you can go from having a more natural look or a very dramatic look. With Maybelline Color Tattoo, one can take multiple shades and blend them together for something more dramatic. The color I purchased is Edgy Emerald. I plan to purchase more of the colors so that I can create different looks with them. This eye shadow did not come with a brush. However, you can use your finger, or you can use one of your own makeup brushes. If you love intense colors and you want something to make your eyes pop, Maybelline Color Tattoo may be right for you. Visit Maybelline today
This color is called Edgy Emerald. Maybelline Color Tattoo retails for approximately 6.99 in retail stores. You can purchase this at your nearest drugstore, or even online. There are 10 shades available. Too Cool, Fierce and Tangy, Audacious Asphalt, Painted Purple, Bad to the Bronze, Pomegranate Punk, Tough as Taupe, Tenacious Teal, Bold Gold, and Edgy Emerald.

Product review L'Oreal Eversleek

This is L’Oreal Eversleek sulfate free smoothing system. I bought this product because I have been trying to find something that I could use on dry hair and for everyday use. I paid $8.99 for it at Publix, I checked other stores, and it is about the same price. This particular one is 1.9oz in size. You can see the picture below and it is a decent size bottle for how much you need to use at a time. What really caught my eye when I saw this product on the shelf was that it is Sulfate free! L’oreal eversleek is a frizz taming crème serum that will work for 48 hours on your hair. You can use this on wet or dry hair. All you have to do is put 1-2 pumps on your palm and work evenly through your hair making sure that you get your ends. L’oreal eversleek  is thin and does not make your hair feel weighted down. My hair is frizzy because of the humidity where I live and once I put this in my hair, I noticed a dramatic difference. If you have frizzy hair and have not found a product you like, this may be the one for you! Check out L’oreal Eversleek

Product review Covergirl Smokeyshadow blast

This eye shadow is cream based. It is a double-sided eye shadow. The one I am reviewing is called silver sky. One side has a rounded tip and that is your base that you start with, the other has more of a pointy tip and that one you use above and below your eye to give it a smokeyshadow look. The colors have a subtle shimmer look to them and blend very easily with your finger or applicator. I purchased my first one about a month ago and I found that the step 2 broke off after two uses, so now I have to use a qtip or applicator to put the color on. I decided to try another one, as I really liked the affect that it gave my eyes. However, that one broke as well. I found that it does not last all day and after a short time, it fades in the creases of the eyelid. This eye shadow comes in many colors Silver Sky, Onyx Smoke, Bronze Fire, Citrus Flair, Purple Plume, and Tempest Blue. http://www.covergirl.com
