Find the Perfect Gift For Dad From The Body Shop

**I recieved this item for the purpose of a review. I was in no way compensated for my opinion as they are my own. Your opinion may vary from mine.**


The Body Shop has ALWAYS been one of my favorite places to shop for body sprays and home fragrance. I've always had a slight obsession with Satsuma and White Musk for the body and Exotic for the home but I've never really paid much attention to their men's products. Recently, my fiancĂ© had the opportunity to test out some of The Body Shop's men's products and he was quite pleased. 
First my fiancĂ©, we'll just call him Ed through this, used The Body Shop's Maca Root Face Scrub. Ed works in a place where dirt just collects in his pores, it's gross to be honest, so recently we have been really trying to get his face cleaned up better. The Maca Root Face Scrub couldn't have come at a better time. He was really happy with the results but stated that it was weird using a product that felt so gritty. I had to explain to him that it was gritty because it's an exfoliant. He said aside from the grittiness, his face felt much cleaner than when he uses just bar soap. 

Next, Ed gave The Body Shop's Maca Root Shave Cream a try. He loved the texture of it and said that he actually felt like he got a closer shave just from using something other than the norm. I think it would have been even smoother if he had a shaving brush but it still worked well. 

Right after shaving, Ed tried out The Body's Shop's Maca Root Razor Relief. He loved it! Mind you, Ed has NEVER put anything on his face besides bar soap and shaving cream. He has never thought it was necessary until I told him how clean his face would feel. Ed said that The Body Shop's Maca Root Razor Relief had a cool feel to it and left his face feeling really soft and comfortable. In fact, he couldn't stop touching it (silly men). 

The last thing he tried was The Body Shop's Maca Root Eye Serum which he also enjoyed. He was just getting ready to head to bed before I made him test all of his new goodies. Now he's up watching TV and playing with the dogs, if that tells you anything. The Eye Serum is meant to wake up and brighten sleepy eyes and reduce puffiness. I think I may have to start using this!

Ed was supposed to try out The Body Shop's Maca Root Deodorant but I just can't seem to get him to try anything but his Old Spice, so I had to do the dirty work for this one. I normally use Clinical Strength over-the-counter deodorant on a regular basis but when I used the Maca Root Deodorant, I didn't see much of a difference. It smelled great, went on clear, and lasted all day. No re-applying! We spend a lot of our time outdoors on days off and the Maca Root Deodorant withstood the gardening, yard work, house cleaning, and heat. 
The Maca Root is Peruvian and is used to help energize and boost skin vitality. The Body Shop's Maca Root line for men really has a great clean scent and it does what it says it should, which I love. I think I may have finally convinced Ed that taking care of his skin will really help him feel a lot better and CLEANER! He may even understand my obsession with The Body Shop's products more now!

#HintingSeason with LG OLED at Best Buy

Thereviewer has been compensated in the form of a Best Buy Gift Card and/or received the product/service at a reduced price or for free.
#HintingSeason is upon us and if you're anything like me, only top-of-the-line electronics will do! The LG OLED TV at Best Buy is on the top of my wish list this year, but, LG's latest display technology is something you must see and experience to fathom the perfection of it's picture quality. 
The LG OLED TV delivers the ultimate display with Infinite Contrast ratio that measures and exhibits only the most radiant whites and profound blacks while offering a more lifelike viewing experience. This is something that has only been seen in our dreams until recently! OLED self-lighting pixels are able to switch on and off individually, offering the first infinite contrast ratio. But, that's not all... By increasing the color range and clarity, LG's exclusive 4 Color Pixel technology provides the most illuminated, vivid colors. LG's 4 …

Product Review for Pretzilla Pretzel Buns

So a couple of weeks ago my family and I decided to take a trip up to Whole Foods since we've never been to one and the only organic grocery store around here doesn't have a huge selection. We're walking through checking everything out and I came across these yummy looking soft pretzel buns. I have to say, the packaging is what really caught my eye but then I realized the buns didn't have salt on them so I was even more intrigued. We bought one package of the burger buns even though they were on sale 2 for $7. Two days later we decide to check them out. It wasn't until we had our sandwiches made that we realized they were moldy. We were completely bummed because this was something we've never tried before.

I went ahead and e-mailed the company Pretzilla to inform them of the mold, mind you it was the Saturday of memorial day weekend. I wasn't expecting a reply until at least Tuesday, but to my surprise, I was contacted back the following morning. The comp…

Rent College Textbooks and Save Up to 80%!

This is a "sponsored post." The company who sponsored it compensated me via a cash payment, gift, or something else of value. 

I recently went back to college to work on my Bachelor of Science degree for Nutrition. It's been about 7 years since I've had to purchase college textbooks and let me tell you, the prices have gone up dramatically! I registered for a Sociology class but had to drop it because I couldn't afford the book which was $239! That's outrageous!  I understand that I could always sell the book back to the school at the end of the semester, but, you and I both know that the colleges only offer you a fraction of what you paid. Plus, there was no way I could afford that book on top of my $200 Statistics book, graphing calculator, and two other textbooks needed for classes.  I like to save as much money as possible, especially on things I'll only be using for a short time. This is exactly why I'm using Campusbookrentals.com for the other two …
