Product Review - Secret Outlast® Clear Gel

I had tried Secret's Clear Gel products before years ago. They came out in big, gloopy strips you pushed up and rolled on. At the time, I really didn't like it at all. The opening for the gel was too big so a lot more product went on then probably was supposed to have. It was also very wet and sticky and left my skin feeling uncomfortable.

I was really pleasantly surprised by my sample this time. The opening for the gel was small holes similar to a soft solid, and the 'wet' feeling dissipated within seconds of rubbing it in.

I really enjoyed the scent and it actually worked well with odor and dryness.

If I never would have received this sample, I would have never purchased Clear Gel again, but now that I have, I am actually going to purchase it. I really like it a lot.

the only issue I have with it is that by the time you twist up the product more than half of it is gone. It's not really full, so that's disappointing (You can see in the attached photo).

All in all, I enjoyed the product and would purchase it in the future.

Would rate it 3.5 out of 5.

I wrote a children's book called It's Okay to be you

So I wrote a really nice poem for kids (or anyone really), about the importance of being who they are comfortable being, for my friend's baby shower which was designed and beautifully illustrated by another friend. Below is the finished product after being printed.

Toying with the idea of selling copies as well since they turned out so great. 

How would I even start to sell these? Would I need an agent? Someone contact me if you know!

What do you think? Would you purchase one?

If you have any ideas for similar kid's books, let me hear them! If you have an idea or would like a certain topic to be covered, please let me know and I can write about it.

Camino Organic Hot Chocolate Review from @SocialNature

I got my Milk Chocolate sample a few days ago, just in time for the extreme cold snap in Toronto. I am a BIG hot chocolate person, and I prefer hot chocolate that doesn't taste too strong or dark (Starbucks hot chocolate is too rich and too sweet for my taste - so anything similar I don't prefer). 

I followed the directions and used 3 or so tbsps of mix with hot water, but I also tried half milk which was really good and much better for a creamier taste but not too sweet.

I was very surprised at how much it tasted like actual natural chocolate versus a more simulated taste. I was impressed at the flavour and loved that it's organic - so I know there was no added chemicals. I liked the texture and I felt it dissolved well in hot water, with no weird lumps or lots of residue at the bottom.

Overall very happy with the sample. Much better than the 'big brand' mix. 

Thanks for letting me try it @SocialNature and @Caminolala!
