eShopMind Universal Cell Phone Clip Holder

This Universal Clip Holder by eShopMind, comes as a bundle with a universal holder and this multi-angle cellphone stand. You can wind it and angle it any way you want. The possibilities are endless.The long flexible arm is very strong, not flimsy which I was worried about. The clip is well made, sturdy, and supports my huge and heavy iPhone 4 with a battery case and my Galaxy S4 without a problem. This is great for watching videos or listening to music, hands free while doing other things. I set mine up where I can see both my desk and my monitor. There are so many uses for this cell phone clip.  I use my cell phone to record some videos. I used this to hold my phone while I recorded a video review. It held my phone well and in placed. It also puts your phone in easy reach.
The phone gripping clamps adjust easily. It's easy to adjust the flexible arm to the desired level.

The head swivels so you can get the angle you need. My only issue was that it brings no instructions. Although, it is fairly simply to figure out, it could be somewhat problematic to some people. It also came with a neat cell phone stand. This is actually really nice.

Overall, I recommend it though because for the price and for the versatility it brings, you really can't go wrong. It is available on Amazon in different colors to choose from here.

I received the eShopMind Universal Cell Phone Clip Holder at a discount in exchange for an honest, unbiased opinion.

Ultimate Deluxe Selfie Stick Kit

I was very excited to receive this Selfie Stick Kit because it looked so complete. I can honestly say that it exceeded my expectations. There is unlimited things you can do with this deluxe selfie stick kit. I was entertained for hours using all the attachments.  

You can use this with iPhones, Android Smart phones, GoPro and Digital Cameras changing the attachments. This kit has a lot of accessories and that's awesome.

The stick has a detachable Bluetooth remote/handle good for 15 Meters.

It brings a tripod, 2 in 1 Fish eye lens, a LED light (with different light settings) that goes on the phone, Rear view finder, cable charger and much more.
                                                                                                   Fish eye lens

Looking at all the pieces that this kit has, at first was a bit over whelming but with in minutes, I was in a roll snapping pictures with all the adapters.

The selfie stick was easy to put together after following some instructions, but it takes a few minutes to figure out how to put each piece together. Unfortunately, the instructions are not that clear/detailed because some come on a paper (inside the box) and the rest on the box (back and sides).

The two things I really did like that were included were the flash and the tiny mirror. The exterior flash is rechargeable and can be placed on the stereo jack to use as a regular flash. This has a button on top that gives you different strength of light.

I also like that the remote is built in and you don't need to hold the stick, there is separate remote in the other part. It makes the photos look better when taking pictures with the front camera of your phone.

 The fact that it has a tripod is great, however I feel that it's a bit unstable to hold some phones. You need to really screw the bottom very tightly to stable the pole while the phone is mounted. I have a iPhone 4 and a Galaxy S4 and it took me a few minutes to place them in the tripod securely. Furthermore, I would not trust this tripod on non even surfaces though.

One thing that I had a bit of trouble figuring out was to get the stick out of the handle. For this, make sure to twist rod at the bottom of the handle and then pull stick up. Then, when extending the stick you need to twist the other way to lock the rods on the selfie stick. 

Overall, I love this kit and the price for all you get can't be beat either.

Garnier’s Clearly Brighter Brightening & Smoothing Daily Moisturizer SPF15 and Micellar Cleansing Water

Garnier SkinActive party from Crowdtap

11 samples of Garnier Clearly Brighter Brightening & Smoothing Daily Moisturizer SPF15
8 samples of Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water (Regular)
2 samples of Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water (Waterproof)
1 sample of Pack of cotton pads
11 samples of Product Information Card 
 1 sample of $10 Visa gift card 

I was chosen by Crowdtap to host a night with my girlfriends to talk and establish great skincare habits for the new year. I was surprised that I received full sizes of the products and even a debit card to host this event, it which was very convenient to get some supplies like gift bags and drinks.

The girls had a great night. We put on some makeup, talked about the products and used them. We were gladly surprised about the new Garnier products because none of us had tried them before. This is what I thought about the products:

Garnier SkinActive Clearly Brighter Brightening Smoothing Daily Moisturizer SPF 15

A little goes a long way. It was easy to apply and it doesn't have a greasy feeling to it at all which is a huge plus for me. I love that it is oil free because I have oily skin and I haven't noticed any breakouts. After trying Garnier SkinActive Clearly Brighter Brightening Smoothing Daily Moisturizer, I have to say that I love the way it makes my skin feel hydrated and feeling fresh. This is a nice light moisturizer that absorbs well and quickly.It also has a pleasant, light citrus scent that is not overpowering which is characteristic to other products from the Garnier line. The biggest plus in this is that it is a sunscreen. It has SPF 15, and my makeup goes on smoothly over the top.

Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water (Pink cap)

This is my first time trying a product like this and I can honestly say that I am extremely impressed. The consistency is like water and it leaves your skin feeling refreshed, soft, and clean. It removes makeup and even mascara, with a few swipes on a cotton pad and I was able to gently remove simple makeup without scrubbing. Application is simple. Apply it to face with a cotton pad, wait a few seconds, and wipe off.
Overall, it doesn't leave oil on your face like most makeup removers, and it doesn't break out your skin.
I was really pleased with the results and will be making it part of my daily routine.

Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water Waterproof

This is similar to the pink bottle of Garnier Micellar Cleansing Water, however this one does have an oil layer, which is what removes the waterproof makeup. I used it to remove a full face of make up (primer/foundation/powder/eye shadow/eye liner/mascara/blush/lipstick). This cleansing water does a very good job of removing most types of makeup. I like it because no harsh scrubbing is needed and the makeup comes right off. After I applied it, I felt like there was a residue that needed to be washed off my face, so I ended up washing it afterwards. It leaves a slightly oily feel on my skin after I use it.

Overall, this cleanser seems to work relatively quickly and easily in removing even waterproof mascara.

I'm a member of Crowdtap and was able to try this product for free. My review is all my own!

SlimFast VoxBox from Influenster

Influenster SlimFast VoxBox


For those of you who aren’t familiar with Influenster, Influenster is an online community for social media bloggers and social media-savvy individuals who can share reviews and occasionally get free box (VoxBox) of products/samples to try and share news, products, and reviews. The latest box I received is called the Slimfast VoxBox.

The Slimfast Influenster VoxBox came with these:

a card with a meal plan 
 Basically, the card suggest this plan to lose weight and keep it off by
Replacing 2 Meals a Day with shake/smoothie or a bar
Enjoying 1 Health Meal (500 calories)
and indulge in 3 100- calorie snacks (sweet/savory)
1. Slim Fast Ready to Drink High Protein Meal Replacement Shake, Creamy Milk Chocolate
I was skeptical in trying this shake. Most shakes to suppress appetite usually do not taste great or leave you a weird after taste. I usually don't drink chocolate flavor products but I was willing to give it a try. I'm glad I did because I actually it was not what I expected. Something that I liked about it is the high protein and low sugar. It's very smooth and flavorful. I did feel full for a good few hours or so with just this shake so it did satisfy my cravings. I would highly recommend for anyone in search of a good tasting, high protein shake that you can grab with you out the door. I think it would be great for before you work out.

2. Slimfast Meal Replacement Bar, Dark Chocolate Sea Salt

This bar contains protein (10 grams) and fiber (5 grams) plus 18 vitamins and minerals to be sufficient meal replacement. Like I said before, I am not a chocolate lover and I would not be able to fully be fair about the taste.  I gave it a try, I don't know if it would keep me full for lunch or dinner. I also didn't find it as filling as it should be to replacement a meal. The dark chocolate was rich, the bar texture was chewy and did not taste artificial. I was not a fan of the nuts in the bar, but that is more of a personal preference. People who like chocolate would find this delicious. 

3. 2 Slimfast 100-Calorie snacks in 2 flavors

Baked Crisps Sour Cream & Onion 
These were much better than I expected! The crisps were tasty and filling. It had great flavor and a great crunch which is important. They are crispy so it gives you the feel of eating potato chips.  I Definitely recommend trying them can't beat a good filling snack for 100 calories.

 Drizzed Crisps Cinnamon Bun Swirl

I was skeptic with this snack as well at the beginning, I have a sweet tooth, the Slim Fast Cinnamon Bun Drizzled Crisps taste just like Cinnamon Toast Crunch, but with real icing on each crisp. I was surprised at how yummy they were. I expected them to taste like cardboard. They are crunchy and a little sweet. The taste was not compromised for the increased nutritional value at all. Definitely worth buying if you are counting your calorie intake.
