BzzAgent Glade Expressions Review

Filed under: General — slagoon @ 1:34 am
Tags: , , ,

Today I bring you Glade Expressions. There are two, fairly new (to glade at least) methods of freshening your home.  Remember  when Glade entered the market? Their jingle was “Plug it in, plug it in”. I guess with the concern about our carbon foot prints, leaving something plugged in day and night that is constantly running has become a faux-pas, so Glade has introduced a Oil Diffuser and a spray mist.

BzzAgent UNREAL- Candy Unjunked September 22, 2012

Today I bring you food…who doesn’t love food? Even better, sweets, candy, junk food…whatever name you call it by, it is a tasty treat. UNREAL (slogan: Candy Unjunked) is relatively new to the market and Bzzagent gave me the opportunity to try some of their candy – provided I could find it. After looking at a couple of the suggested stores I found these suckers at Walgreens in an end-cap. I grabbed one of each of the 5 varieties and went to check out.  Apparently they are so new that the clerk didn’t even know the store had the candy.

BzzAgent COVERGIRL & Olay Foundation and Pressed Powder Review September 18, 2012

Today I bring you the COVERGIRL & Olay foundation and Pressed powder that I received from Bzzagent.com. I was quite excited to try it since I’d used Olay moisturizers a lot in the past.  I’d tried covergirl on and off in the past with varying levels of dislike but I was hopeful that this venture would be different.  This formula suggests that it will help hydrate your skin to improve your overall tone in as little as a week. (Sounds good to me)!!  Did it hold up?

BzzAgent Luster Premium White Kit Review August 28, 2012

Do you remember 1996? Do you remember the commercial where the teacher quizzes her students on colors and gets to her teeth (for white) and gets lots of light colors that are not white?  Here’s a link to that old commercial http://youtu.be/8Q2hTL2DNfY.  Anyway, I was afraid those children (now adults) would point and tell me what shade of cream my teeth were (especially after all that Iced Coffee I’ve been drinking).

Neutrogena® Nourishing Eyeliner – Review June 12, 2012

Today I bring you the Neutrogena® Nourishing Eyeliner that I received from bzzagent.com. The PR for this liner states:

    • Built-in sharpener and smudger create your perfect look, from precise definition to smoky effect
    • Glides on smooth and wears all day; won’t smudge or fade
    • Dermatologist & ophthalmologist tested
    • 4 shades: Cosmic Black, Brushed Pewter, Spiced Chocolate, Twilight Blue
    • Retail price $7.99

I received this in the color “Cosmic Black” which you might think would be shimmery or glittery; well that’s what I think of when I hear Cosmic… but it is a normal flat matte black. Though it isn’t “waterproof” I can vouch that it doesn’t go anywhere when caught by an onslaught of tears.  What is neat is it is very forgiving, if you make a mistake at first you can use your finger to get it back into place or you can smudge everything out to give it a more smokey/blended look.  It has a built in smudging tool as well as a sharpener for the most precise tip I’ve ever seen on an crayon. You can see the smudger’s work below!

  

Overall I really like it and have been using it constantly over the last few weeks. I want the other colors now – and they need a purple one!

Would I buy this product again? Yes, for the price it is amazing.

Will I finish the sample? Yes!!!

Neutrogena Healthy Skin® Brightening Eye Perfector – Review June 11, 2012

Today I bring you the Neutrogena Healthy Skin® Brightening Eye Perfector that I received from Bzzagent.com to try and give feedback on. The PR on this product is:

  • Instantly brightens, conceals dark circles, and evens tone
  • Flow-through brush allows for flawless coverage on-the-go
  • Clinically shown to reduce the appearance of under-eye puffiness and dark circles
  • Broad spectrum SPF 20
  • 4 shades: Fair, Buff, Light, Medium
  • Retail price $13.99

Guess what? For once Fair is actually fair – it is the right color for me.  I like the SPF 20, that delicate area under your eyes just doesn’t have as much protection as other areas.  It really does brighten the eye area.  Be careful if you have fine lines – this can sink in and crack a little.  A little goes a long way, and I’d personally not use the applicator brush – you are just asking for unsanitary conditions, plus it is harder to control how much you use. Instead I twist until I get a tiny bead and put that on my ring fingers and pat it gently into the under eye area.

Would I buy this again? No, it is nice, but my bb cream evens my skin out enough that even my under eye circles are mostly corrected.

Will I finish the product? I’ll keep it around and use it occasionally.
