Biore Acne Mild Care Oil Control Foam Cleanser Review

Biore New Acne Mild Care Oil Control consists of the TRICILOSAN formula which is bacteria-resistant and effective in treating the problematic acne on your face, preventing them from re-appearing. It can form high-density foam which can best perform its function as a cleanser to rinse off all the unwanted oil, dirt, grease on your face, leaving your skin with purified and bright condition.

★ Scent? Light 

★ Consistency? Thick foam

★ Skin Type? All skin types

★ Feel on skin? Gentle. There's no tugging on my face

★ Oil Control? Not really

★ Price? $5.80

★ RepurchaseYes


I really like this foam cleanser. I purchased it at awhile back. No allergic reactions!!!!  I use it in the morning and at night, and it doesn't leave my face feeling tight and dry.  I think that this cleanser is great for acne. I've had only one pimple pop up this month.

It doesn't really do anything for controlling oil. I wash my face around 7 a.m., and my face is oily by the time it's 9 or 10 a.m. Even though it doesn't control my oil, I still think this cleanser is great because of  it's ability to control acne. I should have purchased more than one because it is currently out of stock. I have finally found a great cleanser, and it's out of stock (T_T)  I hope they bring it back. 

 * the cleanser has changed 8/6/13*

Torani Syrup Review

Hello everyone!! This is another sponsored review for SheSpeaks and Torani. I was sent two 25.4 oz bottles of syrup and five$1 off coupons. This time, I received Peppermint and Salted Caramel. I am very pleased with these flavors. I recently ran out of my Torani Vanilla flavored syrup, so these came just in time!

About Torani:

"Since 1925, family-owned Torani has been crafting great tasting flavored syrups that coffeehouses use to make their flavored drinks taste so delicious. With over 120 flavors in regular and sugar free varieties, Torani flavored syrups are perfect for flavored lattes, mochas, coffees, cocoas, Italian sodas, teas, lemonades, cocktails and smoothies. Coffeehouse professionals choose Torani flavors because they are expertly crafted and made with the highest quality ingredients, like natural flavors and pure cane sugar. The sugar free flavors have no calories and are sweetened with Splenda. Now, Torani Flavored Syrups are widely available at retail so you can easily create authentic coffeehouse quality drinks at home."

Torani Peppermint Syrup

With the cool taste and refreshing fragrance of freshly-picked mint, this flavor is an invigorating addition to any beverage. Just add 1 oz. of this classic to mochas, hot chocolate, and blended drinks. 

Peppermint Hot Chocolate

Sugar Cookies with Peppermint Flavored Icing 
My sister made homemade sugar cookies and icing. She added Torani Peppermint Syrup to the icing, and she topped the cookies with peppermints.

Torani Salted Caramel Syrup

The richness of buttery caramel is brought to new heights with a pinch of salt in this delectable syrup made especially for iced coffee drinks. Add 1 oz. to brewed or iced coffees, espresso, steamed milk,and more. 

Salted Caramel Waffle

You can purchase Torani Syrups at: Cost Plus World Market, BevMo, Walmart, Smart and Final, Most major grocery stores, (wide assortment of flavors),, and (widest assortment of flavors).

Have you tried Torani Syrups? Which one is your favorite? 

Hazelnut is my favorite^^

Disclosure: I received free samples of Torani syrup through SheSpeaks. I was in no way compensated for this review other than the free products.

I didn't like the Ivy and Lily scent that I received. It smells like kitchen cleaner and male cologne. I was very disappointed.

I like this starter kit. It was easy to put on and  I loved the glue applicator.

Kinky Moves Curl Defining Hair Cream Review

My hair is relaxed, but I used it on my hair when I did a braid out and it came out pretty well. My curls were nice and they weren't as frizzy. The only thing I didn't like about this hair cream was the scent. It was way too strong.

Mini life update and skin care/hair care haul

Hello everyone! I hope that you all are doing well! I moved to a different house, so I haven't been blogging lately. You don't realize how much stuff you have until you move!!  July-August I was moving and in August I was unpacking and redecorating.  It was so hard to write blog posts because I was going back and forth between homes. My internet and computer was at the new home. I had to rush with my BzzAgent and Influenster reviews because it  had to be submitted by a certain date, and I wanted to do my giveaway quickly before I forgot. Everything is finally back to normal now and I can finally relax!

I washed walls on my birthday (July 18) instead of relaxing. Fun, fun, fun :P I'm 25 years old!! My sibling make fun of me and say that I'm 5 years away from being old. I don't care. I'll still look young no matter what age! My birthday gifts to myself was a daybed frame, a nice pillowtop mattress, and a new computer desk. I just realized that I never wrote a birthday post. I was planning on writing one in July but that never happened lol.  I took photos of my cake though.

The cake was from Sam's Club

Chocolate on chocolate topped with chocolate!

Ate it on a leftover Avengers plate from my little brothers birthday. I tried not to get cake on Thor ^^

I still need curtains for my room. The sun rises on the side that my room is on. It's like the sun smacks me on my face everyday and says GOOD MORNING lol! Other than that, I'm enjoying the house.  I'm happy because I get to see cute bunny rabbits in the backyard. My other house had different animals that would try to live under the shed, so the rabbits left my area. Animals love to move in where I live. I tell them that my house is not Noah's ark lol! Maybe I should try to turn them into my animal minions MUHAHAHA....


My bird minions. Only 3 signed up :P

Well that's about it with my life update^^ Haul time! 

Walmart/ Haul

VO5 Clarifying Shampoo
VO5 Moisturizing Conditioner
VO5 Strengthening Conditioner
Simple Soothing Toner
Organic Root Stimulator Olive Oil Moisturizing Hair Lotion
Suave Cocoa Butter and Shea Body Wash
Aussie 3 Minute Miracle Deep Conditioner
Wave Nouveau Moisturizing Finishing Mist
Happy Me Natural Acne Healing Moisturizer with Spf 15
L'Oreal Revitalift Night Cream
Suave Damage Care Shampoo

 The Aussie 3 Minute Miracle deep conditioner is wonderful. It makes my hair soft. 

I LOVE the Wave Nouveau Finishing Mist. I've seen reviews on YouTube and I wanted to try it out. It leaves my hair really soft and manageable. It tames my new growth! I'm planning on stretching my relaxer till October. I'll be six months post.  This product has helped a lot especially after I wash my hair!! I need to always have this in stock. This finishing mist is also sold at Sally's Beauty Supply.  I looked online and they have a bigger bottle. 

I've only seen the Happy Me skin care products on I bought the moisturizer because I liked the fact that it's for acne plus, it has SPF in it. It has a strong herbal scent but it goes away. 

Biore Acne Gentle Care Oil Control Foam Cleanser

This was the only thing that I purchased from Sasa during the time when there was free shipping without a price limit. I told myself not to purchase anything else from Sasa that day. I was a good girl lol!

I know for a fact that I'll be writing a review on the Biore Foam Cleanser and the Happy Me Moisturizer. If you guys want me to do a review on any of the other product please let me know!

I kid you not, everytime GD comes back haters lose their minds!! If you don't like him then don't watch or listen to his music. It's simple. I read some of the comments and went into “Fan Mama Mode”.  I wanted to log onto my other YouTube account and tell people off, but I didn’t do it lol. It would be pointless.

BzzAgent Review: Bic Soleil Savvy Razor

BIC(R) Soleil(R) Savvy(TM)

Enter Bic Soleil Savvy- an innovative razor that combines the convenience and priced-to-please savings of a disposable with the premium shave performance of a refillable cartridge system. In short, this shaving experience feels savvier with each stroke. Flexible blade technology and a pivoting head provide a flawlessly smooth shave. 

  • Each BIC Soleil Savvy package contains one disposable handle and four refillable cartridges.
  • The razor's handle includes a rubber grip for added control
  • Triple-blade heads features flexible blade technology and  lubricating strips with Vitamin E
  • Pivoting heads are made to follow a woman's contours and provides a super-close shave
  • Available at grocery stores, drugstores, and mass retailers ( like Walmart) for a suggested retail price of $7.49

I received this razor from BzzAgent as part of their BIC Soleil Savvy Razor Campaign.  I received 1 razor and coupons. After using it for a month, the only thing that I liked about it was the handle. This disposable razor has a wide handle and I was able to use it with ease. I didn't have to worry about it slipping out of my hands. The reason why I will not be purchasing this razor is because it didn't give me a close enough shave, and the moisture strips did absolutely nothing.
