Silk brand Protein nut milk tastes so much better than cow's milk. If you need to avoid dairy I recommend it. There is a slightly nutty taste of the cashew in this one I tried in order to give my honest review from Crowdtap recently. I have tried many types of Silk brand milk before and this one is definetly one of my favorites now. It has more protein in it ao it is a good source of that for a meal replacement added to some smoothie ingredients or even to have on it's own. You can go the savory route and add it to soups, or sweeten your muffins or banana bread that you would normally use regular milk in.

Reviewing French's DIJON mustard with CHARDONNAY. The fact that this mustard is gluten-free really did make my eyes light up, as I'm pretty much gluten sensitive these days to many foods. I have been trying to look at all the labels now as to what is purchased so I don't have another round of reactions that are not very pleasant. So far it's been working for me and haven't been as sick as I was last year now. This mustard is really great. I feel lucky to be able to try it from where I got it from which is Crowdtap. They sent me a full size bottle of this baby which is 12 ounces. And the spiciness was actually scary at first. Turns out it doesn't bother my tummy as much as I thought it would either and it tastes soooo good. I have to use it to the last drop now. The CHARDONNAY doesn't really bother me either way if it in or not.

I can deal with a little cooking wine here and there in anything such as this too. The mustard is just my favorite now,being it's not as bland as other mustards to me. I used this first as a dip for my chicken tenders, mixed with honey and it was eye popping delicious. Really felt great to have some spice in my life so to speak again. Turmeric is also in this which is healthy and very good for inflammatory illnesses. It has Feeding America labelled on it so it can't be all that bad either for the fact it represents a 9 cent donation to every bottle sold to that charity. Hunger relief is such an important issue that should never be forgotten.I am in love with this mustard and it will be in use at per week in my household, You can mix it in your dips, put it on your sandwiches or make up some of your own fabulous recipes everyone will love! Yummo.

OK, this was a free full sized product that I received from Crowdtap. I really was anticipating it. I love most any peanut butter brands, although it is not the norm that we buy. I will even eat dollar store brands, no problem. I tried this one and it was so different from regular peanut butter no matter which brand. The cinnamon and peanut butter flavour is okay. I didn't go bonkers over it though. I might not ever in the future either. I'm not going to waste this jar though, and throw it away because it tastes good with my three ingredient cookie recipe! I do eat this on a rice cake like my other nut butters too for now. I am just not going to go out and buy it again like I have with other free trials that I have come across from any sites. I tend to want to try the Maple peanut butter though that Jif puts out, that one seems interesting to me! I can't get used to the taste of the cinnamon here and I do love cinnamon otherwise. I am happy I got to try this before buying it, and think that the opportunity was amazing. Anything that arrives in the mail free to try is awesome. I love most of what I get. I was just thinking this one wasn't my favorite afterall.

I received this set of RoC® RETINOL CORREXION® Eye Cream and RoC® MULTI CORREXION® 5-in-1 Restoring Night Cream for free from Crowdtap in order to give my honest review. I was really happy with the results. I use the eye cream under my eyes before I go to bed at night. Then I wake up ith no puffiness anymore as far as that goes and the dark circles seem to be diminishing already after just over a week of use every night. I know I have much more time with that though and I have confidence it will help me more.

The restoring night cream goes on my neck in upward strokes before I go to bed. In order to not make my skin worse, it's important to use those upward strokes. The smell is amazing and I feel like I've pampered myself silly when using this cream. The feel is not heavy and the greasiness is not that bad either. In fact I only feel moisturizing action and no grease at all.

Silk® Dairy-Free Yogurt Alternative was a product I got to try for free for my honest review from Crowdtap recently. The whole experience was a pleasant surprise. I ended up really loving the taste and texture of this yogurt. Not only is it delicious but it has no dairy in it at all so if you're vegan this is a simple easy alternative to that. Those who just love the taste of vegan foods now and then will also be happy with it so don't limit yourself to the same thing all the time. You just might be surprised on how good some things are if you haven't tried them yet. I go the vanilla flavour which is really light and just right. I mixed this in with a banana in the blender recently and then added some frozen blueberries on top that I had in the freezer. Then there were some nut crisps I had around so I put that into the drink as well to make it look even prettier. It was sooo good. There is nothing I didn't like about this product so go ahead and try one for yourself!

The Influenster GoddessVoxBox was a great surprise when I received it in the mail. I was told via email by the site that it would be arriving. I was happy and excited. I got it and the contents never disappointed. I got a list of things that I will provide here.

1.Cutex Nail Polish Remover Pads~ great for removing nail polish. I love the brand and it's always been dependable for many years. The individually wrapped pads are very easy to take with you on the go.

2. SinfulColors Nail Polish ~ I got this in a mauve-like colour. I was hesitant at first at what it would look like but wound up loving it on my nails. I wish I had a better manicure but I did use the shade and it is good for a base coat for other addictions to your nails or you can leave it as it is.

3.Always Pads~ These are great. They have wings and for heavy to light days. I am impressed with the way they protect against leakage and they have a light wonderful scent to them. Packaging is very pretty!

4.Pantene Expert shampoo and conditioner ~ What can I say, I always love Pantene no matter what kidn of product they put out. They just keep getting better and better with their new line of items. These really do hydrate my dry locks. I love how the scent makes my hair smell as well. Shiny and soft hair at my age of 53 can be difficult but this brand never fails me.

5.Dickinson's Witch Hazel~ This was my biggest discovery as far as products that surprised me how good they really were. I have used witch hazel before but a different brand. My grandmother always used it. This brand is amazing, it never leaves your skin dry at all. Softness is left behind only on your skin and the scent is so much better than plain old other brands.

6.Downy fresh protect laundry beads~ These made my laundry smell very nice. I threw the beads in with the regular detergent and the powerful aroma of both scents was really good on the senses. Love the concept of this!

7.eBates coupon ~ I have heard of this site. I have not done anything with the coupon sad to say but maybe will look into it eventually...

Cutex is a brand of nail polish remover that is dependable and easy to use. These are a free set that I got from Influenster for my honest review. I love the way you can just rip open a packet and use the remover to take off the colour of your nails anywhere with these packets. They are handy to have around. But the bottles are also good to have if you frequently use this kind of remover. It doeshave that nail polish remover scent to it, but it's not over the top. I needed two sheets of these to remove the two layers of nail polish I had one with a lot of pressure on them. So you need to work at getting the polish off, which is typical and not unusual for any polish remover. I did enjoy getting to try these out and would use them again and again. I would also recommend this brand to all because I'm familiar with it. Have used Cutex many times over the years and it always works for me.
