Rachael Ray Nutrish Treats

Hey guys! I was given the opportunity to participate in a dog-themed Vox Box from Influenster and I’m ready to share my thoughts on it. Here’s my take on Rachael Ray Nutrish Dog Treats.

Rachael Ray Nutrish Dog Treats

The Influenster insert states the following about the product:

CONGRATULATIONS! You have been selected to try a sneak peek of new Rachael Ray Nurtish treats. Inspired by real recipes from Rachael’s kitchen — like meatloaf, burgers, roasted chicken, even pasta — these treats look and taste like the real thing. Real U.S. farm-raised beef or chicken is always the #1 ingredient. Dogs everywhere crave the meaty deliciousness in these Nutrish treats. Look for them where you shop for your family’s groceries.

TREATING TIPS: Rachael Ray Nutrish Treats are intended for intermittent or supplemental feeding only. Please watch your dog to ensure Nutrish treats are thoroughly chewed before swallowing. Break into smaller pieces for smaller dogs.

What I love about this product? I got the treats Deli Cuts and Burger Bites. I followed the instructions and had to break them into smaller pieces for my Brittany Spaniel as although he borders on the high end of a medium sized dog, the pieces are a little big for him since he tends to inhale his food and treats. I didn’t do that the first time and if it’s still relatively soft (definitely utilize the resealable bag!) then he’s okay with it still, but the Deli Cuts one hardened over time when I failed to reseal the bag completely once. My dog LOVES these! Both are made with US farm raised beef. There is no corn or wheat in it and has no artificial flavors or meat by-products. It is a cooked product and is a great treat for my dog. Beef is the main ingredient in the listing and that’s a relief as a lot of “meat” treats out there doesn’t actually have meat as the main ingredient. When I smell it, it actually smells like beef jerky to me, which my dog would love to have but we don’t feed him that as it’s not made for dogs. But he can definitely have these! 🙂 It actually smells like something I’d eat! The packaging is vibrant and attractive — very pleasing to the eye really. The product itself looks like pepperoni slices and tiny burger patties — right down to the grill marks!

What I don’t like about this product? Nothing really except maybe for the price. They are pretty pricey compared to a lot of dog treats out there even though the ingredients in these are top notch.

The Vintage Cosmetic Company Rose Gold Tweezers

Hey guys! I finally got around to using this beauty tool from my ipsy January 2017 Glam Bag but I was left so disappointed! Here’s my take on the The Vintage Cosmetic Company Rose Gold Tweezers.

The Vintage Cosmetic Company Rose Gold Tweezers

What I love about this product? The color is beautiful. The packaging it comes in is pretty and different for a tweezer. It seems to exude a lot of promise. Using this is pretty straightforward and easy.

What I don’t like about this product? It fell really short of my expectations! I’ve used many brands of tweezers before from Tweezerman to Revlon to Avon and even one from Solingen just to name a few. This reminded me a bit of the one I had from AVON but ten times worse! It seemed more eager to “cut” the hairs I wanted to tweeze than pull it. I’m not quite sure too if there’s a problem with the grip of these tweezers or what but when compared side by side (quite literally) against Tweezerman and Solingen tweezers, there was more pain with the ones from The Vintage Cosmetic Company (when it actually pulls the hair out and not cut it). No bueno! This will just be an extra pair I have in the drawer — definitely not a replacement for my regular tweezers quality. I’ve tried this many times to make sure what I’m seeing (and feeling) is consistent.

Curtain Call: Hey Honey 24Seven: Day & Night Moisturizing Cream

Hey y’all! I haven’t done a Curtain Call post in a while so here goes. This post is on a product I got from my ipsy June 2016 Glam Bag. Here’s Hey Honey 24Seven: Day & Night Moisturizing Cream.

The closest thing to this I found on their website is the 24Seven Honey Day & Night Cream. At 50 ml / 1.7 oz, this retails for $38 at their website. Did they rename this? I got the name from the ips. The back of the tube reads the following:

“24/7 is a rich cream that is neither greasy nor sticky and is ideal for use on face, neck and even the eye contour areas. Use on delicate areas that are commonly the first to demonstrate signs of aging to prevent dryness that causes wrinkles.”

Hey Honey 24Seven: Day & Night Moisturizing Cream

Verdict? I actually love it. The texture is very pleasant to apply onto my skin. It is what it promised — neither greasy nor sticky. The texture is of a light cream and is white in color. Being able to use this on delicate areas such as around the eyes is a huge bonus. I’ve always use specific eye creams for the eye area. The scent is quite pleasant, something floral almost but not quite. It’s a little strong initially but it dissipates quickly and there’s no trace of it minutes after application. One thing I will say about the scent is that while I find the scent pleasant, others may not. It also kind of changes if I keep smelling it. It eventually smells of something that reminds me of a nurses office when I was young in school or something.

Freeman Feeling Beautiful Kiwi & Yogurt Moisturizing Cleanser

Today’s review is on something that fell short of my expectations. I try hard not to have any expectations when trying a new product but I’ve tried so, so many already from the Freeman brand that I expected it to perform well at the very least. Here’s my take on the Freeman Feeling Beautiful Kiwi & Yogurt Moisturizing Cleanser.

Freeman Feeling Beautiful Kiwi & Yogurt Moisturizing Cleanser

What I love about this product? It comes in the typical tube packaging with flip top cap so I can squeeze out how much I want to use very easily. The texture of this is a little more viscous than I’d prefer it to be. It is opaque in appearance with the palest mint green tint in color. It kinda does look like yogurt when I see it in the palm of my hand. The scent is fruity but I can’t really tell if it’s of kiwi or not. I like the fruit and eat it but when I smelled this product my brain didn’t go “Hey! This totally smells like kiwi!”. It is very gentle on the skin and not drying at all as there is no scrubby bits to it and it produces no lather. I find it a little weird as I’m not used to cleansers that don’t scrub or lather but it does clean the skin without being drying at all.

What I don’t like about this product? There is zero lather and it doesn’t strip off as much as I’d like it to, which is a personal preference. Because of this, I feel like my face is not clean enough. It’s the feel or sensation that I get when after using this.

ipsy January 2017 Glam Bag

Happy Sunday! I got this in about a week ago but didn’t get around to taking pictures until this weekend. It’s not a bad start of the year with ipsy! Here’s my take on the ipsy January 2017 Glam Bag.

ipsy January 2017 Glam Bag

The bag is something out of the box for me. It grew on me though and I can’t wait to use it. It’s the material mostly but it grew on me more by now and it kinda looks sporty! First item that caught my eye is the -417 Hand Moisturizer. I haven’t used it yet but I’m a sucker for hand creams and moisturizers especially at this time of the year. Next up is the Pretty Woman Nail Polish. The shade I got this in is called I Can’t Deal. It looks to me like a greige type of shade, not really my thing but I know someone who would look good with this shade. Then we have the Smashbox Cosmetics Camera Ready BB Cream SPF 35. The shade I got this in is LIGHT/MEDIUM, which I think it the right one for me. I don’t use this type of product much but BB creams can be worn alone like a moisturizer, if I remember right, so I’ll give it a shot as such. Next we have the Trust Fund Beauty Lip Gloss. The shade I got this in is called Method To The Madness. It looks to be a pretty coral shade but I’m not sure if I’m going to keep this or not. As I said many times in my past ipsy Glam Bag posts, I have too many lip products open already. Last up is The Vintage Cosmetic Company Rose Gold Tweezers. I’m glad that I got this in my bag as everything about the product caught my eye — the packaging, the color, the item itself and more. I found out that it’s a brand that didn’t originate in the US, so I’m glad for the opportunity to try something from them. I will be putting these to the test tonight!

Overall, not bad! Next month is Valentine’s Day month and I think they usually do something around that theme for the bag. I’m really excited to see what it may be!
