Have you ever had a restless nights sleep after an intense workout due to muscle pain? Or maybe you suffer from really bad back pains?  Well I have had the privilege of trying out New Advil PM! I am a huge fan of Advil for headaches. Now they have a new pill that relieves pain AND helps you sleep! It works great! As all sleep aids I gave muself 8 hours of sleep. I usually wake up in the mornings with bad back pain and exhausted because I wake up throughout the night due to the back pain. I took an Advil PM and woke up feeling great! I felt refreshed and well rested and best part of all PAIN FREE!! This is definitely my new Go to when I need a good pain free nights sleep! Thank you to Crowdtap and Advil!

How annoying is it to have to apply lotion to your skin after a shower? Me personally I have to, if I don't my skin will be dry and itchy all day, and that is even more annoying! But the actual routine is also annoying! Shower, dry off, moisturize, air dry and finally dress. If I'm running late, I'm in trouble!

I have had the amazing opportunity to try a wet skin moisturizer. The Jergens Wet Skin Moisturizer with Coconut oil.
This is the most amazing moisturizer I have ever tried! It cuts my getting ready time in half! After showering, before you leave the shower with your skin still wet you apply the moisturizer. All it takes is a little dab since the water helps spread the lotion. Then you pat dry your skin and get dressed! Thats it! Your skin absorbs it really quickly and leaves your skin feeling AMAZING! Your skin will not be left oily and it doesn't leave a residue. I don't have to reapply because it lasts all day!

The scent is amazing! It smells like coconut. When I'm applying it to my skin it transports me to a tropical island! I have definitely found my new moisturizer. I would really recommend you guys try it. I guarantee you will fall in love with it too!

Influenster #BonitaVoxBox

I received the Bonita Vox Box from Influenster. In my box were 6 products. In this post I will review each product.

First lets start with the one I tried first, which of course is the Fiber One 90 calorie chocolate fudge brownie. This was delicious! It was moist and decadent. Very chewy and chocolaty. It was just an amazing snack! It definitely did not taste like it was only 90 calories! It went perfect with a glass of 2% milk!
I also received swatches of 2 different lip colors by Revlon. One was the Revlon Super Lustrous Lipstick in Blushing Mauve. This lipstick is smooth and creamy. Stays on soft and doesn't dry out your lips. The color was very pretty, subtle so it's perfect for everyday use.
The other swatch was the Revlon Ultra HD Matte Lipcolor. Well, I don't know about you but I love matte lips! This Lipcolor is beautiful! It goes on sleek like lip gloss but it's a matte. It's super smooth and doesn't feel dry on your lips. I will definitely be picking one up from Walgreens using the coupon that was included with the swatches!
Next was a bottle of the SinFul Colors Kylie Jenner Trend Matters collection in the color Mad Matters #1715. I think I'm just in love with a matte finish because I instantly fell in love with it. I was a little sceptical at first about the color because it's so light, sometimes with light colors you can see all the imperfections of your nail bed. But this nail polish covered so well! It didn't leave a mess, my nails looked smooth. I instantly became addicted and bought 3 more colors!
I also received a bottle of the Dickinson's Enhanced Witch Hazel Hydrating Toner. So, I will be the first to admit I had no idea what this was! I thought of witch and instantly thought hemorrhoids, lol, don't ask! So I did some research and read that it's really good for your skin. It's supposed to hydrate it and even out your skin tone when used before applying your makeup. Boy does it do just that! So it's recommended to use at night to hydrate your skin while you sleep and before you apply your makeup. I do just that, usually after washing my face my skin gets all red and I wake up to it super dry. When I use this, super soft glowing skin! My makeup stays fabulous all day. It's alcohol free so it doesn't burn and smells amazing but it's a very subtle scent.
The next 2 products is made by the same company and came in foil packages that were attached. The first one is the Madam C.J. Walker Beauty Culture Scalp and Strand Nourishing Dream Come True Wonderful Pre-Wash Protein Treatment, for reconstructing and Rebuilding, wow that's a long name! Well ladies and gentlemen this is exactly what the name says, A Dream Come True! Let me start by saying how damaged my hair is, it's bleached and super damaged from heat styling. My hair feels so rough! I would never dare wear it natural. Well, the day I used this, along with the other product, I decided to wear my hair natural just to see what it really does. First of all it smells amazing! Very floral scent but not overwhelming. This goes on your hair for 15 minutes prior to shampooing and conditioning. It's recommended to apply moderate heat.
After shampooing you then go on to the apply the Madam C.J. Walker Beauty Culture Scalp and Strand Nourishing Dream Come True Wonderful Deap Conditioning Masque, for Hydrating and Conditioning. This smells amazing just like the Pre-Wash. So apply generously to your entire hair and leave it in for 15 minutes. Rinse with warm water. Let me start by saying right off the back, my hair felt healthier. I let it air dry, the frizz was very minimal, almost none existing, after all it is only one treatment, my hair was softer and it looked healthier. I went to a barbecue that day and was out in the heat all day. The entire day my hair stayed frizz free and the scent lasted days! Everyone kept complimenting me on my hair and the smell. I fell in love with these products. The only down side is that it is only sold in Sephora and the nearest Sephora to me is 45 minutes away. I can order it on line, but when I looked it up it is WAY too expensive! It runs for about $36 a jar! I mean it's worth every penny! But still on the expensive side.

I recently learned about a new product to help with sleep from the makers of NyQuil. It's called ZzQuil. Now to make it clear, this medication is NOT for a cold or flu, it is ONLY to help you sleep. You must give yourself at least 8 hours to sleep after taking it.

I tried it and I was pleasantly surprised with this product. I am one that has a hard time falling asleep (keep in mind it is 12:30am while I write this) I took the 2 purple gell caps 2 hours before bed. I fell asleep instantly and stayed asleep all night. Usually if I take a sleep aid I wake up groggy and feel like I didn't get enough sleep, no matter how much I slept! Well with this I woke up refreshed and with energy. It's been so long since I've felt that way in the morning! It is non habbit forming so I know I can take as I need without having to need it every night to fall asleep. The pills were small and easy to swallow. I would definitely have this in my medicine cabinet for those nights I need a little help with sleep!

I received a sample of this product in my #ZzzQuil #SleepLovers #voxbox from influenster for review purposes and these opinions are completely my own.
A little about myself... I'm starting this blog to review items I love and hate. I will try anything once and I will tell whoever listens what I think about it. I'm a stay at home mommy & wife to a little boy who is currently 5 months old and a husband who loves cars and video games. I've recently become obsessed with freebies and trying new products. I hope you enjoy my reviews! Thanks for reading!
