Total Basset Case: Product Reviews and Giveaway Winner

Product Reviews and Giveaway Winner

We've made it half way through the week, friends!
That deserves a pat on the back if you ask me!

I have come across a few beauty products lately and that I am quickly becoming obsessed with
and I figured you ladies would want to know about them!

Up first
Suave Keratin Dry Shampoo
Besides this dry shampoo smelling amazing and being only about $4
it also works like a charm!
I have tried a lot of dry shampoos and this is definitely my favorite!
It's formula is compared to that of Bumble and Bumbles

Big Skinny
My friend introduced me into this self tanner and I have not looked back since.
It only takes a super small amount to make a big difference.
The formula is so strong that I usually mix it with a little bit of regular lotion
to decrease it's Snooki like effect on my skin.
It produces a subtle, non glittery bronze to your skin...that's the perfect formula for me!

Olay Total Effects Refreshing Citrus Scrub
First of all, this face wash smells like you have a basket of fresh oranges in your bathroom
So yummy!
Next, it does a great job of exfoliating but does not feel like it is ripping your face off.
I hate when face washes are SO intense that I feel as if I have lost a layer of skin while using them.

Acne Stress Control Toner
I just started using this toner about a week ago and can already tell a difference.
I have been using it in the morning and at night.
 My face is definitely less oily and smoother- which is the exact result I was looking for! 

There you have it, my favorites as of late!
What products have you been loving?

And If you are searching for other great product reviews,
you HAVE to check out
Jayme and Mendi over at 
 They have the best product review videos!
Not only are they adorable but their reviews are honest and spot on!
I love watching their videos,
I always feel as if I am sitting around chatting with my best girl friends.
They also do videos of their recent shopping hauls.
Who doesn't like to scope out the latest items that your friends just bought??

*One more item of note...
the GIVEAWAY winner is....
CONGRATS girl...shoot me an email and I will get your goodies out to you!

I'll be back tomorrow with the crack brownie recipe...

Love product reviews like this... it's nice to know what works and doesn't work for people. I think I am in need of a toner, but am too scared to try one. Why? Idk, lol. Do you find that it dries your skin out?
