My Product Reviews

Kellogg's Special K Protein Cinnamon Brown Sugar Crunch Cereal
During my morning, I tried Kellogg's Special K Protein Cinnamon Brown Sugar Crunch cereal with some Cashew milk. This particular cereal spotlighted it's 'Protein' and was filling enough to fulfill my morning hunger. It has 7 grams of protein and if you drink milk, that would add 4 additional grams according to the front of the box. My cashew milk went perfectly fine with it. The cereal was lightly sweetened with the cinnamon brown sugar, so not too sweet. It has a crunchy bite when in milk, but it can also be eaten as a snack too without the milk. I did have it as a midday snack a couple of times. I will add this cereal to my cereal list options when I go grocery shopping. I may just buy it again. There are so many cereals on the market but this one was filling enough and just sweet enough to satisfy my taste buds and my hunger until lunchtime.



Kellogg's Special K Chewy Nut Bars
Initially, I thought that these Special K Chewy Nut Bars were going to be like all of the rest that I have eaten. I get granola bars, breakfast bars, and snack bars, often, and they all pretty much taste the same. However, after my first bite into these nut bars, I was shocked! I was thoroughly impressed with the number of peanuts, the chocolate on the back of the bar, then some chocolate squares on the front with more nuts and morsels. Plus, they are Gluten-Free, which is a big plus since I'm looking for foods and snack options that are moving in that direction. This definitely could easily replace a slice of cake, donuts, or the usual after-dinner desserts, and it's healthier for you. I had this bar during  my lunchtime and as an after-dinner dessert. I even had a friend try one and she was just as surprised at how fresh, tasty, wholesome they were. I can say that this is my new go-to snack bar, hands down. Simply, Wow!

Australian Gold Lotion Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 30 #ProductReview #LiveTheGoldLife



This is a product review for Australian Gold Lotion Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 30, provided in the Influenster BlossomVoxBox, to test. The opinions in this blog post are 100% my own.


My Product review

Selena Thinking Out Loud With Purpose had the opportunity to test the Australian Gold Lotion Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 30. Sunscreen is very important to me because I have realized that I can actually burn too. It doesn't matter that my skin is brown. The sun does not discriminate, so I am a sunscreen fan. If I happen to forget my sunscreen, I feel SO bad because I know that my forehead will get sunburned the most because it is left uncovered. It feels leathery in a way and as I do my daily facial scrub I see that it removes that extra dried skin from the sunburn.

So...with that experience, I use sunscreen! The first thing I noticed, when opening the cap of the Australian Gold Lotion Sunscreen, was the pleasant, fruity, flowery, scent. It is very welcoming. That was definitely the best part besides the protection it provided for me. 

It easily comes out of the tube when you squeeze the container and it is rich like a lotion. It is white, but it glides on like a lotion. I could see how it was immediately moisturizing my skin without being sticky, oily, or leaving a white, heavy residue. I'm not a fan of heavy, sticky, white, sunscreens. 

I noticed on the back of the sunscreen container that it should be applied liberally 15 minutes before sun exposure. It should be reapplied after 80 minutes of swimming or sweating, and towel-drying. Most importantly, more should be added at least every 2 hours. So the directions, for use, are available right on the product. It is priced nicely and I would definitely recommend this product to you, my readers, and anyone looking for a good sunscreen lotion. Grade: A
