Little Debbies

For Little Debbie Oatmeal Creme Pies

food

I will not lie those little Debbie commercials got me to buy this old school item. In all of these years, it hasn’t changed and to me, that’s a good thing. I love these sugared up oatmeal cookies. They have frosting in the middle of two old fashioned soft oatmeal cookies. One makes a really great snack when I am in the mood for something sweet but still mildly healthy. 12 grams of sugar isn’t insane when I’ve seen soda with double the sugar in it. I hate really sweet things and I don’t really eat ice cream or cake/pies. When I am in the mood, I like a small serving of something like a cookie or a slice of cheesecake. I have to say that I love salty things much better like pretzels and chips which are just as unhealthy as cake and ice cream. It’s all in moderation people. Don’t forget to indulge.

Invisible Oil

For Bumble & Bumble Hairdresser’s Invisible Oil Primer

I just used this as my leave-in conditioner and it was a great detangler as well. My thin hair needs a leave-in to give extra moisture to the ends and to detangle my knotty hair. I really enjoyed spraying this into my hair and the scent was amazing. I would not purchase though, because I already have my holy grail leave in treatment. This was nice to try, but I wouldn’t splurge on it. It is very hydrating without weighing my hair down and my hair was always very soft after using this. I almost never heat style my hair, so I cannot speak for how it performs as a heat protectant. Since it says primer, you might want to spray a normal heat protectant on top of this one. It may only be for the sun.

Get Reddy

For BareMinerals Marvelous Moxie Lipstick in Get Reddy

It is a pink magenta red color that does not look good on me, so I am glad that I used it up. It smells like a MAC lipstick, very sweet vanilla scent. It is a nice smooth pigmented lipstick, but it has a tendency to travel and move around on the lips. I enjoy a lipstick that locks into place, so I would not purchase this lipstick and I cannot really recommend it. I liked wearing this lipstick as a balm around the house and not caring about the smearing. I would never wear this color or formula out. It is too high maintenance for me.

A Sweet Pea

For Body Nature Sweet Pea Moisturizing Body Wash

cream bath

I used this as a bubble bath and it gave a good amount of lightly sweet scented bubbles. I enjoyed using this for those quick 10 minute baths that I could catch during the week in between episodes of Paw Patrol. I’m lucky I shower two nights a week, because it is not easy with an 11 month old. I do enjoy sweet pea scented bath products. I forgot how gentle they are on the nose. I would not repurchase this though, because I think B&BW still makes Sweet Pea bubble bath and I have had that before. This was given to me by D and the only thing I haven’t finished yet is the lotion, but I’ll get to it! It’s currently on my desk at work, but not getting much love during the summer.

Sparkling Grape

For Stila Lip Glaze in Sparkling Grape

I hate that I couldn’t use up every last drop and there is still gloss stuck in the tube. I felt like you had to click the pen a lot to get enough out to coat your lips. It left my lips feeling sticky instead of the glossy, slippery feeling that I like my glosses to be. I don’t like a sticky gloss. I prefer ones that are smooth. I feel like I could feel the grittiness of the glitter on my lips and it only gave my lips a hint of purple. I would no repurchase and I do not recommend unless you enjoy a sticky, gritty lip gloss. I’m glad I used my Birchbox points on this.

Wild Berry & Vanilla Sugar

For Scented Secrets Gingerbread Cookie Body Lotion

I would say 4 oz is about half of a full size of lotion. My big lotions are usually 8 to 12 oz. This is a nice, thick lotion so a little goes a long way. It lasted me about three weeks and a full size takes me 4 to 6 weeks to use up. Three weeks is not bad for a 4 oz lotion. The berry smells very sweet like a berry pie and the vanilla sugar scent smells exactly like it’s name. The sugar was more like a brown sugar scent and took me back to when I used to make my own cookies from scratch. I had to store these bottles upside down to get every last drop out, no cutting the bottle required. I have a few more of these and I am excited to use them. I think I’ll use up the rest after summer. I like to use my shimmer lotions during the summer, so I can actually show off the sheen/shimmer that it adds to the skin. Wearing it during the winter is just wasteful. I think I’ll be able to use up all three of my shimmers this year. I would repurchase these lotions, but they were a holiday set.

Lil’ Meal

For Gerber Graduates Lil’ Meals Mac & Cheese w/Chicken & Vegetables, Spaghetti Rings in Meat Sauce

Two of Dean’s favorite foods are Mac & Cheese and Spaghetti, so he ate these two 6 oz bowls in two sittings. He ate 3 oz at a time. He can really pack in the pasta. He loves anything in a sauce or cheese. I will not repurchase these, because he eats the “adult” version just as well. He doesn’t need the toddler version. I like to expand his taste buds with these Gerber meals and if he does well with them, he can “graduate” to adult food from the table. These meals are fortified and sneak in veggies, which I like. I will be repurchasing other kinds of these lil’ meals, just not these particular ones. I highly recommend these for convenience, when you don’t want to cook a separate meal for your toddler. When we have pork chops, these come in handy, because that meat is too tough for him to eat and chew.
