If you read my last post you know I love Smile Brilliant. And if you know me you know I love GIVEAWAYS! Well, guess what?! I've been testing out Smile Brilliant's electric toothbrush! Did you know they carried an electric toothbrush too??! The cariPRO Ultrasonic Electric Toothbrush.
Switching from a regular old toothbrush to a store-bought electric toothbrush long ago was definitely a game changer. And to be honest I didn't know exactly what to expect with the cariPRO. Would it be the same as the Walmart bought electric toothbrush? Is it worth it?
I cannot say enough good things about this company. They will honestly remain in my heart as one of the best brands I have ever worked with. So, let me tell you just how incredible their product is!
Hiiiii everyone! I hope you are having a nice daaay! Today I want to share my experience with my first Influenster Box! I did receive these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes and I intend to give my full and honest review. If you don't know what Influenster is you can click here to get more info and sign up! Now let's get to the review:)
Upon receiving my Box I was super excited and a little nervous because I wanted to create really good content around these products. If you know me, you know that I love to use beauty products on the more natural side. So I was super excited to get my hands on the paraben, sulfate, etc.- free stuff! When choosing your beauty products it is good to make informed decisions, know where you're products are coming from and just what exactly you are putting on your body.
Ohhh mascara... Always out searching endlessly for the perfect one and one that will not make my eyes water in pain (from certain ingredients).
My makeup collection is quite minimal as I try to use products on the more natural side. I have tried many mascaras only to end up disappointed by promises made on their descriptions. So for a long time I have been using Honest Beauty Truly Lush Mascara + Primer . Well since Jessica Alba launched Honest Beauty on September 2015. My makeup is actually mostly Honest Beauty. Their mascara has always worked very well. Double ended bushes that build really nice lashes.
I heard about By Terry's innovative 2 step twist mascara... and when Lydia Elise Millen tells you this product is GOOD, well you run out and get it.
Honestly I was hoping I would perhaps get to see what Native American group I am from. Apparently, thats just not how it works lol. In fact my results ended up being pretty broad but fun and surprising none the less. As I opened the results to see what in the world I could possibly be other than Mexican and maybe French, I was quite surprised to see Asian. I was possibly too excited for some people, as the nasty comments started to come in. Right, I deleted those. Ain't nobody got time for that.
I was truly, pleasantly, surprised! No one in my family could have imagined. There's not much we have to go off of. There is no great grandmother or great grandfather to ask. Nor is there a grandfather, or even a biological father. My grandmother lost both of her parents at the age of 5 and while I could go on and make this story even more complicated, like I said in the video above, lets just say I didn't have 100% information about exactly what I was.
When the time comes I will be trying other services just to compare and get the most out of what I can possibly discover with these exciting DNA tests.
23andme was very enriching. I would definitely recommend it. I believe it also happens to be the most budget friendly! And you know what, there is other bits of fun information I didn't mention in the video like, 23andme connecting me to over 1,000 DNA relatives around the world! Insane. Ofcourse this is something you can opt out of, but I left my profile public allowing DNA relatives to request my information. Also finding that 74% of my DNA relatives are more likely to drink coffee!? I'm a known coffee addict, I see it's in our blood lol. In the future I want to upgrade to the health part of the results, and that's a whole other very exciting part of 23andme.
I realize now that I HAVE to order a kit for my mom! and hopefully convince my grandmother to do it and therefore find just a few more answers for my very curious little mind.
I hope you found this helpful, and I wish you the best of luck with your results if you plan to take the DNA test for yourself! And remember that we're all human and most of us will find that we are the world. Part of all nations, part of the human race. Unless you're part alien...
