BzzAgent - Coppertone ClearlySheer Sunscreen

Do you wear sunscreen every day?

When I was younger (not that I'm that old, but you know what I mean, right?) I used to sunbathe all the time and wearing sunscreen wasn't something I didn't even think about. Now that I'm just a bit less young, I don't even think about going out in the sun without some type of sunscreen! Oh how age changes us.

I recently received a complimentary BzzAgent campaign kit of Coppertone ClearlySheer sunscreen which I've been trying out to see how well they work. Below are a few of the benefits they list and my thoughts:
  • Lightweight formulas feel clean and light, leaving barely a trace on skin
Yes, it's true, from the moment I did a quick test, I saw it immediately blended into my skin without leaving the "white" layer other sunscreens leave!
  • Won't clog pores or cause breakouts (clinically tested on acne-prone skin)
So far, so good! Haven't noticed any pores clogging up or any strange breakouts!
  • Lotions appropriate for sensitive skin
I don't really consider my skin to be overly sensitive, but thankfully, I have seen no strange reactions.
  • Moisturizing formulas help leave skin smooth and soft
The lotion is definitely moisturizing and I haven't seen any dryness after using it.
  • Fresh light citrus fragrance with soft floral base notes.
The fresh scent is one of my favorite things and more specifically, the fact that it is not overly "coconuty" or the typical scent most sunscreens have. This is perfect because I can wear it every day!
  • Water resistant (80 minutes)
Pretty impressive, right? Specially considering how "light" the consistency is, but I really haven't been able to test this one long enough yet. I will put in an update after I spend a bit more time in the water!

FINAL THOUGHTS:
I'm definitely impressed with this ClearlySheer sunscreen. If you'd like to receive a $2.00 OFF coupon, let me know in the comments section below! I'd love to share!

Crowdtap ~ Herbal Essences Body Wash

I've been a member of *Crowdtap for about a year! Wow, time flies!

Last week I received a small sample of the Herbal Essences Body Wash in the scent - "Hello Hydration" and I wanted to share with you what I thought of it. It was a 1.2 oz bottle (pictured below). The bottle and label are very colorful and pretty to look at, so I immediately liked what I saw.


Then I opened the bright colored cap and took a whiff...
Oh my...the scent transported me to an exotic vacation spot in a tropical island! Refreshing...
 It has coconut extract, and what I love about it, is the fact that the coconut scent isn't over powering. I am a coconut lover, don't get me wrong, but sometimes, body wash scents can be "too coconuty" if you know what I mean.

Well, this one is perfect, it has the hint of coconut which is just right. It leaves my skin feeling soft and hydrated. The only thing I would change is the consistency of the body wash. It seems a bit too "runny", but other than that I loved everything else.

I did notice that when I added the body wash to my bath sponge and mixed it with water, the scent was even more delicious than just smelling it directly from the bottle.

Needless to say, I had a hard time getting out of the shower!

When I did step out, the entire bathroom was smelling so good! Overall, it was a great experience and I'm glad I got the opportunity to try it out!

Thank you Crowdtap!
