Tryazon & Rhodesbread Cinnamon Rolls Review



I was excited to  host my first Tryazon Party with Rhodesbread.
Over the years I always made homemade cinnamon rolls but now that I'm older I don't have the time and always looking for great tasting cinnamon rolls that are easy to prepare.
I picked up these two packages of Rhodes as the stores in my area don't carry the microwave version yet.
I prepared both packages. The cinnamon rolls in the pans called Bake N Serv went from freezer to a cold oven then baked for 30 to 35 minutes. I found that they didn't rise  very much  and tasted a bit doughy. I think next time I will let them sit out before I place them in the oven to see if that makes a difference. There were six rolls in the pans and the pans made an easy clean up.





Now the bag contains 12 cinnamon rolls and the need to rise before you bake. There are three ways to let them rise overnight, three to five hours and preheat oven at 175 turn off oven and let rise for hour and a half. Then bake for 30 to 35 minutes. 
These were a big hit during my party they were not doughy and tasted very good just like my homemade cinnamon rolls. The icing of course is the Best party it wasn't overly sweet just perfect. Someone may have licked the plate clean lol.



Everyone really enjoyed Rhodes cinnamon rolls and how easy they are to prepare. I passed out coupons to my family and friends so they to can enjoy these at home.

Johnsonville Fully Cooked Breakfast Sausage Review



Breakfast the best and most important meal of the day.
 If your family is like mine its hard to sit down or find the time for breakfast. It takes me three times to get my son out of bed.
Johnsonville now has you covered. 
How? 
Well you can now find New Johnsonville Fully Cooked Breakfast Sausage in your market. These fully cooked breakfast sausages take 30 seconds in your microwave and have the perfect blend of seasonings. 
So now you have time for a delicious breakfast at home or on the go. 




I made breakfast for dinner and my family loved the Johnsonville Original fully cooked breakfast sausage. 
Doesn't that picture make you hungry? 
You can also make these in a skillet which I did. I put them in a nonstick skillet on low heat no water needed and cooked them for 8 to 10 minutes. I liked that these didn't taste rubbery or dried out. 
They come in two other flavors I want to try Vermont Maple Syrup and Turkey.
The ingredients contains No fillers, 0G Trans Fat and are Gluten-Free.

I’m a member of the Crowdtap Johnsonville rewards program, and Johnsonville sent me a sample of its Johnsonville Fully Cooked Breakfast Sausage Links to review.

Exposed Skincare Review



I workout most days of the week and even though I'm almost fifty years old I tend to get acne on my shoulders. I believe its caused from all the sweating I do.
I was delighted to test and review Exposed Skincare Body Wash and Microderm Scrub
In the box I also received a Derm X cloth and body cloth which I love. They are so soft and absorbed and gentle on my skin.
After using these two products for a few weeks I noticed my skin hasn't been having acne breakouts. I'm totally happy about that!

 The Body Wash contains Tea Tree Oil Glycolic Acid and Salicylic Acid and can be used daily. It didn't dry out my skin like other acne products do. I thought the scent was strong but its not a medicine scent its the Tea Tree Oil I do believe.

Microderm Scrub contains Corundum Crystals and Passion Flowers. This scrub polishes away dead skin and leave your skin smoother and clean. I only used this a few times a week. This scrub is not harsh on skin as a matter of fact its very soft and doesn't feel  like any scrub I have used.  
I would recommend these products for all age groups and give these two thumbs up. 
All opinions are my own.

Aveeno Positively Radiant Daily Moisturizer Review



I was hand-picked for the Aveeno Positively Radiant Daily Moisturizer crowdkit. I was excited because I really like Aveeno products they work great and there is something for everyone.

I did noticed after using the Aveeno Positively Radiant Daily Moisturizer for a few days that my skin was looking brighter and fresh.
 This product does claim to improve brown spots and blotchiness but I didn't see this while I was using the product. I didn't have the chance to try this for the four weeks so the claim may be true.
It has a strong yet pleasant scent which I liked but I would  prefer it not to be that strong. 
I like that it is thick rich but not greasy and contains SPF+30.

I’m a member of the Crowdtap Aveeno® rewards program, and Aveeno® sent me a samples of its POSITIVELY RADIANT® DAILY MOISTURIZER BROAD SPECTRUM SPF30 to review.

Fresh Tips Review



                 Fresh -Tips are perfect for everywhere you roam. 
I received these Fresh -Tips to review. I have never heard of them until I received these free samples. 

The peppermint flavor is the blue one and  there is a toothpick on bottom. The bubblegum flavor is pink and it doesn't have a toothpick as this flavor is recommended for kids. 


BubbleGum & Peppermint Flavor

I must say I really love them. Why you ask?
 Well throughout my day I wish I could brush my teeth but it's not easy to find a bathroom or water to do this. 
Having Fresh -Tips in my pocketbook I can take one out clean my teeth and get fresh breath all at once. 
The rubber bristles are soft on gums and enamel.No water needed.

To use rip open bag take out Fresh -Tip and brush teeth and tongue.
 It is a disposable toothbrush that has rubber bristles and Xylitol ( which is a sugar alcohol from fruits and vegetables used as a sweetener & is sugar-free) that is located just below the rubber tip.
After you brush your teeth you suck on it like a lollipop for the fresh breath.

Dove Dry Spray Review



I received a free sample of Dove Dry Spray I believe back in March of this year. I wasn't really sure if this was for me.
 I dislike antiperspirant sprays my whole life. They went on cold, wet and didn't keep me dry or smelling fresh. 
In today's beauty world products are getting so much better and improving so I decided why not give this a try.
I loved that when I sprayed this on it didn't have that wet and cold feeling and it dried within a few seconds. It kept me fresh and dry through the day. Dove also contains 1/4 moisturizers to care for your underarm skin.
I continued to use it for the next three months and so far I was happy with it. 
The real test is "Will it work during those hot summer months"?
Yes! Dove Dry Spray does keep you fresh, protected and the best part of using the dry spray your shirts no longer will have those awful armpit stains and white marks.

New Shiseido Ultimune Eye Power Infusing Eye Concentrate



I was one of the first people to try the newest member of the Ultimune family. It is called Ultimune Eye Power Infusing Eye Concentrate.




This product is designed specifically for around the eye area and it helps boost the performance of your regular eye creams.
I tested this for 12 days and used it during my morning routine. I believe you could use this morning and night.




I liked the way it applied. It was smooth and didn't leave my eye area greasy. There was no true scent which I like.
I applied my regular eye cream over the eye concentrate.
After using this for the 12 days I noticed a small difference around my eye area. It appears to be firmer and it may be helping those fine lines around the corners of my eyes.
I would recommend using the Ultimune Eye Power Infusing Eye Concentrate it does help your delicate skin around your eyes. 
If you are like me fight those aging signs with Shiseido new products.
You can get a free sample with purchase.
They have social media site Facebook, InstagramPinterest and YouTube.

Red Baron Brick Oven Pizza Review



Have you found a frozen pizza that you liked yet? 
I haven't until bzzagent offered me a Red Baron Brick Oven Crust campaign that I accepted.
In my household I'm always buying frozen pizza but we really weren't happy with the quality and taste of most.

In this Red Baron campaign I received one coupon for a free pizza of choice and two $1.00 off coupons to give to family or friends.
I choose the Meat-Trio pizza that consisted of ham, sausage and pepperoni.



Coupons

Meat-Trio Pizza
          
           This looked good out of the box. It was easy to cook. 
The crust was awesome. Crispy and bubbly just what I like. I usually don't eat the crust on any frozen pizza but this Red Baron Brick Oven Crust was tasty and had great flavor and it had plenty of meat for my husband.
My family enjoyed eating the Red Baron Brick Oven pizza and now we will buy this brand.

You can purchase this at Walmart and the other flavors they come in are Cheese Trio, Pepperoni and Sausage Supreme.

You can connect with Red Baron's social media pages here

Back To School from SinfulColors, A Class Act. Swatch & Review



Hello, I hope you are having a terrific summer. I have the summers off and been having a blast. July is coming to a close and August is around the corner time to think school.

I received ten SinfulColors to test and review from their Class Act collection.
From left to right colors are Blackboard, Whiteboard, Summer S-cool, Chalk it up, Why Not, Ice Dream, Night Owl, Late Night Haute, Ice Blue and DareDevil. 
 In all swatches I didn't apply any top coat.

This Class Act collection contains 27 shades. That will be available  August & September 2015 at Walgreens and other mass retailers for $1.99 each. 



951 Why Not
Yes, "Why Not" pick up this shade its bright and very pretty. I applied only one coat and that's all you need. You need to have a base coat with this as it will stain your nails.


1104 DareDevil
            I'm loving this pink shade.  Two coats are applied.


Chalk It Up
             The name says it all!  It dries matte and looks great.


                 Late Night Haute  Night Owl  1140 Ice Dream
                                                    
I use Chalk It Up as base coat and applied Late Night Haute over top. Looks great with bar glitter of gold.
Middle pic. Base coat is DareDevil with Night Owl its so shimmery with blues & gold glitter.
Last pic I used Summer S-cool as base coat and added 1140 Ice Dream over it. This has lots of different shades of blues specks & silver. These 3D glitters look amazing over any shade.


1405 Ice Blue
This is my favorite shade Ice Blue. 
When I read the name "Ice Blue" I really thought it was going to be a awesome shade of blue. As you can see it looks like purple and it is differently an awesome shade.


Summer S-cool
This is a cool summer color. Its between a light blue and aqua green.



Blackboard & Whiteboard

These last two colors are also matte they dry fast. The Blackboard has that blackboard look its awesome. I did  little nailart with them they came out wonderful.

Please check out SinfulColors media sites and keep up to date. 

I received these samples to test and review. All opinions are my own.
