Paula Dorf Perfect Color Review & Coupon Code & Giveaway


I was chosen to try Paula Dorf's Perfect Color. This product is a multi functional makeup product. It can be used as an eye shadow, a lipstick, and as blush. This product comes in 5 colors: Angle, Candy Apple, Ecstasy, Innocence, and Sensuous. You can check out Paula Dorf's perfect color shades here.

Here's a swatch of of the product in the shade Ecstasy.
The consistency of this is very similar to Maybelline's color tattoo eye shadow but the perfect color is creamier. I found that if you chose to use this as a lipstick you need to apply it with a lip brush. Also if this product is used as a lipstick, I think it looks better under a gloss versus by it self. As an eye shadow i feel like it the Perfect Color look and works better with a primer. 

Overall I think that this is a good product and since it can be used as a blush, lipstick, and eye shadow makes the $32 price tag not so bad. 

With each purchase, you will receive the gift of our mini No Color Glimmer, a gorgeously soft, lightweight powder to complete your look! The perfect accent to Ecstasy.USE CODE: ECSTASY

Francois et Mimi 20 Oz Stainless Steel Water Bottle Review

Today for review we have these two stainless steel 20 oz water bottles from a company called Francois et Mimi. This company specializes in home and kitchen products.

About The Bottles
These bottles are 20 ounces and feature a fully stainless steel interior. Both bottles come with a flip top straw and the bottles are BPA free. This means that the bottles do not contain  bisphenol A which is a chemical that can have possible effects on the brain, behavior, and prostate gland of fetuses, infants and children. 

What I Think About the Bottles
Overall I really like these bottles. The come in a set of 2 and that's a plus, I filled the bottle with water and left it in the fridge overnight and the next day my water stayed cold for about six hours without any ice. That's something no other water bottle has done for me. There was also no metal taste that I find with some stainless steel products that I have used. My only problem with these bottles is the fact that the built in straw is not long enough to reach the bottom of the bottle so in order for me to get all my water I have to remove the top.  I give this product a 4/5. You can purchase these bottles for $19.95 here.

Hyperbotics Pro-Dental Oral Health Tablet's Review

I'm back with another great product from the HyperBiotics team. This time I was lucky enough to get to try their Pro-Dental probiotics for oral health. This product is being marketed as "a brand new concept in the probiotic world as it focuses on repopulating your oral and nasal cavities".

The Claim
As I stated these pill are focused on promoting Oral Health.  Not only are these pills supposed to promote oral health, they are supposed to promote ear, nose, and throat health as well. Here is a list of all the thing's these pills are suppose to do directly from the company:

Revolutionize Your Dental Check-Ups. "The probiotic S. Salvarius M18 produces an enzyme that helps dissolve and loosen the formation of plaque and bio-film that eventually leads to cavities, staining, tooth sensitivities and gum disease (specifically gingivitis) which can turn into periodontal disease if not treated. Studies show that a special 2% of the population rarely experience plaque or tooth decay (that leads to the domino effect of dental problems) with the only differentiating factor being that they have sufficient S. Salvarius M18 colonies."

Target Bad breath At The Source." Did you know that when you use mouthwash to prevent bad breath, you kill both the good and bad bacteria? And, did you know that it’s the good bacteria’s job to keep the bad breath causing bacteria in check? In fact, S. salivarius is often found in healthy mouths and is deficient in halitosis sufferers. This means that the best long-term solution to eradicating bad breath is to repopulate your oral cavities with the “good guys” found in PRO-Dental."

Repopulate Your Oral Microbiome. "You might be familiar with your “gut microbiome”, but did you know that different probiotic strains populate your oral cavities? Your mouth is your first line of defense and the entry point for most infections. When your balance of healthy oral microflora is compromised by diet, disease, stress or antibiotics, you can quickly develop oral health related problems. With PRO-Dental, you can finally keep this often forgotten microbiome in optimal shape!

Alleviate Your Oral Issues. PRO-Dental is uniquely formulated with the most effective and clinically proven oral probiotic strains ((including S. salvirus K12, S. salvirus M18, L. reuteri, L. paracasei) to repopulate your oral cavity, helping to break-up plaque and malodor causing bacteria, reduce oral health challenges such as cavities, teeth-staining, tongue-coating, gingivitis, tonsil stones, canker sores and protect against ear, nose and throat infections."

Guard Against Ear, Nose, And Throat Infections." Upper respiratory and ear infections are caused by a buildup of bad bacteria that travels throughout your oral cavities. When your oral microbiome is populated with strong probiotic colonies, you are equipped with natural defenses against these nasty invaders. In fact, studies show that children with S. salivarius K12 have a 50 percent less chance of harboring strep throat bacteria and may experience fewer ear infections."

More information about these pills and and about the company can be found here.

Directions for Taking The Pills
The instructions for taking these pills are as follows:
 For Daily Maintenance: Take one tablet once or twice per day. Preferably after brushing your teeth and/or using mouthwash.
For Intense Repair: Take 2-3 tablets once or twice per day. Preferably after brushing your teeth and/or using mouthwash.

The bottle contains 45 tablets so if you are using them for twice a day for  daily maintenance, you will have a 22 day supply.

My Experience with the Pills
I truly wanted to test these pills only because they are supposed to help fight bad breath and bad breath is something I have been struggling with for years. When I first started taking the pills I took them following the intense repair directions, taking 2 tablets twice a day. I did this for four days, brushing my teeth and using mouthwash before each time I took the pills. In those four days I noticed that throughout the day, my breath was not losing freshness and I didn't feel the need to pop a mint every 20 minutes. After those four days I started following the daily maintenance directions. I did this for 2 weeks and noticed that my breath is staying much fresher during the day and my morning breath is 10 times better than what it use to be. I can't really speak n how these pills work for ear, nose, and throat infections because those are problems that I don't suffer from and like I said I wanted to try these pills because of their bad breath fighting abilities. As a means of helping fight bad breath these pills get a 10/10 from me.

If you would like to try these pills for yourself, the can be purchased here.
