#StopCatLitterSmell with Litter Genie review

I received sample compensation for this post from BrandBacker and Litter Genie. All opinions are my own.

Have you ever been to a friend or relative’s home and immediately noticed those litter box odors associated with having cats? Does your house smell like that of a crazy cat lady? Worry no more! Litter Genie is here!

What exactly is the Litter Genie? Think of a diaper genie for your cat’s smelly messes. The starter kit includes everything you need: litter pail, standard bag refill, and a scoop with a holder that attaches to the side of the pail. Seal away your furry friend’s litter odors for up to two weeks at a time. For one cat, the standard refill lasts up to eight weeks.

I like how discreet the Litter Genie is. It is about the size of my bathroom garbage can, so it doesn’t take up much space in a small bathroom. The Litter Genie is easy to use and covers up litter box odors! It is possible for a room with a litter box to smell clean all the time. When my furry girl makes a stink, she runs out of the box as fast as she can. One quick scoop and toss keeps our home from smelling like cat litter odor.

Litter Genie can be found at several retail stores near me like Target, Walmart, Petco, and PetSmart. If you prefer to shop from the comfort of your couch, you can also visit Chewy.com and Amazon. The Litter Genie starter pack starts at $14.99 and refills can be purchased for as low as $5.99 MSRP.

Litter Genie is currently holding a giveaway where you can win a Litter Genie of your own and much more! Enter here. Check out the link for a bonus $5 off coupon as well!

LIFEWTR VoxBox

I recently received my LIFEWTR VoxBox free from Influenster for testing purposes. Here’s a little bit about my latest Box.

I received a 1L bottle of LIFEWTR, which is pH balanced and contains electrolytes. The artwork featured on the bottle is Series 1.3 art by Craig and Karl.

I like the 1L water bottle size because it will last me throughout the day.

Have you tried LIFEWTR yet? What did you think of the product or the artwork?

Sheba Meaty Tender Sticks review

I received a sample of Sheba Meaty Tender Sticks in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own.

My picky eater isn’t always the easiest to buy food or treats for. She may eagerly eat a few bites at first but quickly grow bored. With Sheba Meaty Sticks, this certainly wasn’t the case!

influenster-1473946057751

I took the treat out of its individually wrapped package and my cat immediately began sniffing and licking the treat. I broke off a piece for her, which she eagerly chowed down. Each piece of Meaty Tender Stick I broke off for her was met with the same eager result. She was satisfied with one treat.

I recommend this product for even the pickiest of eaters. She tested the chicken flavored and loved it, even though she favors fish-flavored food.

What are your favorite treats to feed your cat?

Maybelline Brow Drama VoxBox

I received the products mentioned in exchange for a review. All opinions are my own.

I received the Maybelline Brow Drama VoxBox from Influenster. Included in my VoxBox were two shades of the new Brow Drama Pomade Crayon. I have light brown hair, so I was sent a blonde crayon and a soft brown crayon. The soft brown crayon is the shade closet to my eyebrows and natural hair color. The crayon is easy to apply smoothly and only takes a couple of strokes to fill in my brows. The Maybelline Brow Drama Pomade Crayon would be a simple addition to any makeup bag to amp up your daily makeup routine.

 

 

SlimFast VoxBox review

I received the products mentioned in this in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own.

As we begin a new year, the sometimes dreaded New Year’s resolution comes hand in hand with the month of January. Fear not. Eating healthy or trying to lose a few pounds does not have to mean starving yourself, going on an extreme diet, or spending endless hours at the gym.

Growing up, I was a bit of a chubby kid. My mom would buy me SlimFast shakes to have as an evening snack so that I could have something sweet and filling without piling on a ton of calories. The SlimFast brand has changed a great deal since the days of me drinking a shake out of a metal can with a curly straw.

The SlimFast Advanced Nutrition Plan recommends replacing 2 meals a day with a SlimFast product (including shakes, smoothies, and bars), eating 1 healthy meal on your own (don’t skimp on the protein!), and 3 100 calorie snacks throughout the day.

Below are the products I received in my SlimFast VoxBox:

This shake packs in 20 grams of protein and barely any sugar. I felt like I was indulging in a sweet treat, yet I was providing my body with something healthy. A SlimFast shake is great for those with dietary restrictions because it is lactose free and gluten free. I like to have a shake for breakfast because I often do not have time in the morning to prepare a meal for myself before I head to work or the gym. I love the grab-and-go factor.

I received a meal replacement bar in Dark Chocolate Sea Salt. This bar is only 190 calories and has 10 grams of protein and 5 grams of fiber. I felt full after eating this bar for breakfast. The touch of sweetness from the dark chocolate was quite tasty since I love dark chocolate. The almonds were a nice crunchy surprise too!

Who doesn’t love a cinnamon bun? These crunchy cinnamon bun swirls were a nice mid-day snack. The drizzle on top made this snack feel like anything but healthy! I had mine with a small glass of milk on the side. The back of the package recommends trying these swirls as a cereal in milk, I would like to try that next time. I enjoyed the way they tasted separately, and I think milk would only add to the indulgence factor.

The last product I received was a savory snack. These sour cream and onion crisps made a nice little snack while I was watching television after work one evening. This snack was enough to satisfy my salty craving with a 100 calorie single portion. Once I finished the bag, I did not feel the need to go back into the kitchen for more food.

SlimFast products have come a long way since the old shakes in the metal cans. With so many meal replacement and snack options, they make it easy to find new and exciting healthy options. If you are looking for some healthy food choices with built-in portion control, give SlimFast a try! After all, #ItsYourThing!

What is your 2016 New Year’s resolution? How have you made changes in your lifestyle to stick with it?

Silk’n Flash & Go Express review

I received the product mentioned below in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own.

Silk’n Flash & Go Express is an at-home solution for permanent hair removal without the pain. The light-based system provides permanent results with a series of uses lasting about 20 minutes each. The Flash & Go Express can be used on legs, underarms, and more.

12105232_1629474300637734_1050738867_n

The Flash & Go Express system is small and comes with a carrying case that makes it easy to travel with. Inside you will find a detailed instruction manual that lays out all of the key points. Once plugged in, the Flash & Go is easy to use. All it takes is the trigger button, which only works when the entire light surface is placed against your skin. This makes the system extremely easy to use correctly. The most important point to take away is that the same skin should not be pulsed with light more than once in a single session.

I separate my Flash & Go Express sessions so that they are two weeks apart. Over time, I have noticed that the hair on my legs appears to be lessening when it grows back in. I will continue to use this product over an even longer time span than the Influenster campaign I received it from to see if further results occur. I was never in any pain while using my Flash & Go Express, which is what I was a little nervous about before using the product. It truly is safe, easy, and painless to use.

Silk’n Flash & Go Express retails for about $300, which is hundreds of dollars cheaper than salon treatments. Purchase your own Silk’n Flash & Go Express directly from the company’s website and use coupon code “NOHAIR” by January 31, 2016 to save 10% off your purchase.

If you are in search of a holiday gift, consider Silk’n Flash & Go Express!

Sally Hansen Airbrush Legs review

I received the product mentioned below from Influenster for testing purposes.

Sally Hansen Airbrush Legs gives you smooth-on perfect legs in an instant. Simply squeeze a quarter-size amount of product into your hand. Massage into legs and feet, rubbing in completely. Be sure to apply sparingly to your knees and ankles. Allow to dry before getting dressed. This product is waterproof but will remove with soap, water, and a washcloth.

When I am at work, I am often getting bruises and scratched by our pet patients. Sally Hansen Airbrush Legs helps me cover up imperfections in my legs, as well as freckles and veins. It doesn’t make my legs feel greasy and it lasts throughout the day. I received a sample of the lotion version, but the same product is also offered in a spray. I am able to have a glow and shine to my legs without having to sit out in the sun. Plus, I can apply the product in the comfort of my own home, without going to a tanning salon.
