Kozy Shack

This pudding was very smooth and creamy in texture. The portion size was enough and the packaging was adequate and inviting. Although the word indulgent was probably overstated a bit. I felt this pudding was comparable to other name brand puddings out there. Will probably buy again, but would not be my exclusive choice on puddings. This product is available at Kroger stores.

HemisFares foods found at your local Kroger Co. stores include pastas from specific areas in Italy, dry and frozen, imported olive oil and sauces. I was able to try their dry fettuchini noodles and Bolognese sauce. Their noodles were easy to cook and turned out soft and delicate. Although I am not a meat sauce fan, their Bolognese was very robust and delicious. I would definitely buy these products again. I can't wait to try their olive oil.

Nuture Vox Box

Received the above box from Influentser several weeks ago and had a chance to try all the products.

1. Hada Labo Tokyo Ultimate Anti Aging Facial Mask
This came in a small packet that I had to rip open and then unfold a wet,slimy mask. Unfolding something so thin with eye and mouth holes; full of wet gooey serum proved almost impossible. In fact the mask actually ripped in the process. When I finally got it on, it felt extremely cold and wet. After leaving it on for the recommended time, you were supposed to remove and rubbed in the extra serum into your face. This also was nearly impossible...there was so much serum on the mask, my face was unable to absorb it all. The good news is it did do the job. My face felt more hydrated and smoothier. Would I try it again? Probably not!

2. Uncle Bens Flavored Grains
I have always loved Uncle Bens rice products and have faithfully bought my favorites over the years. These new flavored grains are supposed to have more mixes of sophisticated grains. Although I loved the rice I tried, I felt it was no different from there other grains, which some also have flavoring in them. So I am actually not sure of what the hype is on these new flavored grains. Would I try it again? You bet I love Uncle Bens

3. Blue Lizard Austrailian Sunscreen Sensitive
 Haven't had a chance to use this one too much; since we have had so much rain and clouds were we live. Loved the feel of the cream; did not feel greasy and rubbed in well. It was fragrance free  and seemed to work ok for me. It was for sensitive skin; a plus in this house. Would I try it again? Most likely; when I could afford it. This puppy is $14.99 for 3oz.

4. Dramamine Non-Drowsy Naturals
Unfortunately I haven't even tried this. Although we get carsick in this family, we use sea bands or essential oils and they have always worked for us. This product does promise non drowsy though and prevents symptons of motion sickness and is naturally made.

5. Red Vines
This was supposed to be some kind of licorice. It was awful...I could barely finish one piece. My kids also gave it a whirl and spit it out. Would I try this again? Definitely Not!

6. Ore Ida Extra Crispy Easy Tater Tots
This was a small package for $1.25; can remember exact ounces. They were easy to bake in the oven and came out as promised....Crispy. Would I try this again? yes.

7. Attitude Hair Care
This shampoo was designed with worry free ingredients...no cancer causing chemicals and mutagens found in other hair care products. I loved this one!. The smell was wonderful. The shampoo lathered but rinsed out well and left my hair feeling clean. It is available at Target and I cant wait to get more ... hope they have conditioner.

Simple Truth Organic

Kroger Simple Truth

I love simple truth products ....the fact that they are organic is a great benefit and yet they are as affordable as non-organic foods. I have tried the greek yogurt cups in the past and we buy those on a regular basis. The bread was delicious and gave a nice gourmet touch to my meal. I absolutely love dark chocolate, so that was a hit, but I didn't want to share a taste with anyone else in my family..ha ha. The drink was my least favorite, but I personally don't like flavored tea. I will continue to buy simple truth organic each time I shop at my Kroger store

Silk Almond Coconut Blend

Silk(R) Almond Coconut Blends

We regularly drink Silk Almond Milk. We recently tried this new Almond Coconut blend. My daughter is a vegetarian and drinks Almond milk on a regular basis. She likes all flavors and loved this as well. She drinks it straight, in coffee, and in a smoothie. Silk almond milk is smooth and silky with a delicious almond taste. This blend had a nice blend of almond and coconut. The fact that the unsweetened is only 35 calories and the sweetened is only 50 calories is a plus.
If you are looking for a healthy replacement for cows milk or just want a nice treat or addition to your coffee or smoothies; give this a try.

I was skeptical at first to order hair color online. I mean who ever heard of that? The website was set up well and very user friendly. First, I had to answer some questions about my hair and what actually I wanted to have done. I was able to pick a color(with the possibility it would be changed to better match my wants and needs by the hair colorist). Then I was also able to send a picture of my head to help the colorist make a better match. You can even pick out how often you want to color your hair and a new color kit can be sent regularly. You can review your wants and needs on hair color whenever you need to and change your orders at any time.
When I received my box, it was packed neatly and came with hair color and shampoo and conditioner samples and instructions. The color had been changed to better match my requests. The instructions were easy to follow and I was able to color my hair with ease. The products did not have the usual nasty smell of hair color in a salon and my hair felt silky soft afterwards. The product blended well with my hair color and looked very natural to my hair color(what I wanted). My only disappointment was it did not color all my gray(which isn't much).
If I could get this to color my gray I would definitely consider ordering on a regular basis. This is perfect for busy people who don't have time to go to a salon and great for those who also don't want to pay the salon price for coloring.
eSalon also has shampoo, conditioner and lots of other products to compliment their coloring kits.
