Scientists finally understand why deep breathing physically reduces stress

Our thoughts and emotions can influence our physical states and vice versa. When we’re stressed, we tend to take short, rapid breaths of air. Conversely, mental health professionals often tell patients with anxiety or depression to take deep breaths as a way of calming down, and yoga practitioners know pranayama as the controlled breathing to…

February Freebies: All About That Dove

Product testing is something I am fairly new at but it is something I am enjoying. So far I have been blessed with testing some pretty fantastic complimentary products such as, Aussie Cleanse & Mend Shampoo and Conditioner (courtesy of Influenster) and Scotch-Brite Scrubbing Dish Cloth (courtesy of PinchMe). This past February I lucked out and got to test out two products (for FREE) from the brand Dove courtesy of Influenster and BzzAgent.

Dove Advanced Care Antiperspirant: Lavender Fresh

The first complimentary product I was sent to test is Dove Advanced Care Antiperspirant in their new scent, Lavender Fresh. I received this free product from Influenster to test and review. When it comes to my underarms, Dove has been the only brand I trust for years. I already use Dove Go Fresh so I was quite excited to be chosen to test this product.

As expected, this product by Dove did not disappoint! If you love the scent of Lavender you will love this antiperspirant. The scent lasts for around 24 hrs and the antiperspirant sweat protection lasts close to 48 hrs. I still prefer my Go Fresh scent (Cool Essentials) but Lavender Fresh is a new favorite scent.


Dove DermaCare Scalp Pure Daily Care 2n1

The second free Dove product I had the pleasure of testing is Dove Pure Daily Care 2n1 Anti-Dandruff shampoo & conditioner. I received this complimentary product from BzzAgent for testing purposes. I was excited about this product test for three reasons: I have suffered from dandruff since I was a teenager, Dove is a brand name I trust, and this was my first BzzCampaign for testing a product!

Unfortunately, this 2n1 shampoo & conditioner didn’t work for me. It didn’t help with dandruff at all and just caused icky product build up! (Gross!) Performance aside, I did actually like the smell of the product; It has this pleasant minty scent. I’m disappointed that this product didn’t work for me but this in no way makes me think negatively about Dove.

Under Construction

When I first started this blog it was pretty directionless. Finally after years of random blog posts I finally have a sense of direction of what I want this blog to be. I will be working on making some changes to this blog over the next month or so to better fit this new direction I would like take. Hope you like the end result when I am finished and wishing you all a happy February!

Adventures in Product Testing- New Section added!

I have just added a new section to this blog. Late last year I began signing up for a handful of sites that occasionally offer free samples of products in exchange for completing a few tasks. These tasks usually consists of sharing a picture of the product and writing a review after trying the product out. Simple and easy. If you click on  ADVENTURES IN PRODUCT TESTING from the menu above you will be taken to a page devoted to these programs I have signed up for. You will find out which sites I have signed up for and have received boxes from.  You will also find a list of complimentary product samples I have tested sent by these programs. It’s a little slim right now on content, but I will be expanding it soon as a test and review more products.

**3/16/2017: I have added a new page to archive all my product reviews of complimentary products I test. Hover your mouse over ADVENTURES IN PRODUCT TESTING and you will see Product Reviews pop up below. Simply click on it to read my product review posts.**

15 Texts You Can Send Someone Instead Of Ghosting Them
