My thoughts:

I thought the moisturizer felt great and had no over whealming fragrance. But, it broke me out so bad! It made my poor chin look like a war zone. For my dry/combination skin type- it is not worth splurging on the full-size.

TidBit Post: Zzz Quil Sleep Aid; an Insomniacs Opinion.


If you have yet to become a part of Influenster, I really think you should! Here is a link where you can sign up!

Besides being able to try beauty products for free, you get to also have the chance to sample other types of products. In this case it was the Zzz Quil sleep aid. I have suffered with Insomnia for many years, and I can tell you first hand that it is very difficult to find an aid that helps you fall and stay asleep, but doesn’t turn you into a zombie the next day.

I have had prescriptions for sleep, and never have I tried one I like. On top of them not working, the can become addictive, as with many medications.  I have taken Benedryl on a parental recommendation, but I always feel groggy the next morning.

This Zzz Quil is different. I did fall asleep faster and didn’t wake up through out the night. The next morning I even felt like a normal human being, not dead and half functioning. But, I would not go as far as to say this will be my nightly sleep aid. After using it for an extended period of time, I did notice a lack in its effectiveness. The body just builds up a tolerance I suppose.

I think this is a great product to have on hand for every now and then, I especially think it is great for travel. Sleeping in strange places can be hard, it is nice to have help. I would not say if you suffer from insomnia to stop taking any prescribed medications, rush to the store and buy cases of the stuff. It is a good aid for the occasional restless night, but not the miracle sleep aid Insomniacs wish for.

*I was sent this item for review by Influenster, but all opinions are honest and my own.*

Cool Beauty FREEBIE!


I have a really strange obsession with ordering free samples online, rather it is something I need or not. But, who doesn’t love free stuff, right?

While browsing for samples I came across a really neat offer!

For the month of April you will get 3 FREE Lip Smackers and a lanyard when you sign up on their website. Link Here

This would make a great small gift for someone you know. Or for yourself! I, for one, am keeping the lanyard, then gifting the Lip Smackers themselves to my nieces.

I think I am going to continue to post freebie links as I find them ❤

I hope you enjoy!
