Secret Outlast® Completely Clean Clear Gel keeps me dry all day long even under pressure

Disclosure:  I received this deodorant for free as part of a BzzAgent product campaign. My opinions are my own.


I have been using Secret anti-perspirants for years but I also switch around with some other brands. I usually use a soft solid type of anti-perspirants though and had not tried a gel version before. I received this deodorant for free as part of a BzzAgent product campaign, so I figured I would give it a try. I am particular about my clothing and only buy high quality brands that I hope to keep for many years. A good anti-perspirant is really important to prevent damage or stains any which way you cut it.

The gel actually dries very quickly and does not get onto my expensive clothes. No marks on my darker shirts, tops or sweaters and I have plenty of them. My little uniform you might say with navy and black has a fresh light scent that is not overpowering either.

It has been keeping me dry and fresh all day long even through a recent high pressure business session. That was a real challenge I was worried I would have a problem there but it worked very nicely. I didn't notice any irritation or discomfort either and when I showered my underarm area felt clean with no residue left over. Some of the heavy duty brands are hard to get off and you have to scrub--not this one. I didn't try going for the 48 hours but I wouldn't be surprised if it lasts. I must say I also worked out one morning and I stayed fresh through that as well....I sweated alot because it was a crazy workout but I didn't notice any unpleasant odor. It did the job.

I will continue to use it...and find it to be comfortable. The big test will be when summer rolls around!  I will update you soon since I will be taking a vacation soon and it will be hot. I think that is close enough to summer to get a good idea. I bet it will work.

Who doesn't know about Paleo products these days? I have heard tons about them but never tried one so I was interested to see how the WELL Food Company Paleo Cookie tasted.  The Double Chocolate Chip 'Cave' Paleo cookie tasted great. I don't know if this fits the Paleo Diet but I would crumble it up in a plain Greek yogurt or into low-fat cottage cheese for an afternoon snack. It is dairy, gluten, grain and lactose free which is surprising because it tastes great. I am interested in checking out the other flavors because this one is really yummy. 19.99/6 cookies

The next item in the box is from Barlean's and it is their CoQ10 Swirl in Island Fruit. I love Barlean's products and I have used a few of them. This CoQ10 Swirl tasted good like a smoothie and I like the powerhouse of CoQ10 that it delivers in a natural formula. I like to try to take C0Q10 most days because I feel like it really supports my heart health. It tastes great so it is a good one to try. 35.99/16 oz 

I am always in a huge rush especially in the morning so sometimes I will throw down a smoothie and just call it breakfast along with some coffee. A girl has to do what she has to do to get her nutrition in her body. A small sample of biPro Instant Whey Protein Isolate Supplement was tucked in my box too. This is an all natural whey protein with zero carbs if that is a concern. There is no fat in there and it is sugar free. This obviously has no taste (it is unflavored) but it is perfect to add into your smoothie and you can sweeten the whole thing with a frozen banana like I do. Helps to build and maintain good muscles and recover after a blasting workout.  As I said, perfect for busy days and it keeps you going with lots of protein. 17.45/50 servings

I am always seeking energy but I try not to rely on anything bad for me. Okay, I will have a cup of coffee in the morning but who wants to keep drinking that stuff all day long. EVOPak Energy Chews are another option that is chock full of anti-oxidants, B Vitamins, electrolytes and a touch of caffeine and Ginkgo boloba. This is an option that you can throw in your purse for a little afternoon energy without having to run into the nearest coffee shop and wait in that darn line. The berry flavor tastes great so I  enjoyed it and it perked me up so I could keep working without feeling tired. Just 20 kcals and 3G sugar too. 32.99/6 packs  

Turmeric has been a hottie supplement option for a few years now. You don't know about this secret yet?  Trust me. My mom loves to use it and swears by it for her back. These tabs are so much neater than the powder! I love the idea of the anti-inflammatory support and the fact that this is 95% pure curcuminoid in yourtheary Turmeric Advanced Perfect with a glass of warm low-fat milk to maximize the effect. My mom has gotten some real relief from using turmeric and I think I will pick some of this convenient one up for her. 29.99/120 tabs

Smarty Pants Adult Multi-vitamin Gummies were included in my Bulu Box too. I like that these have no added sugar and include eco-friendly Omega 3 in the formula as well as Vitamin D3. They even added some fiber too. This is a winning idea to get all this in one gummy formula. Up to now I take so many separate tablets and gummies I would love to use this all in one formula. It tastes great and is available in a full size formula. $47.95/30 servings

I try so heard to boost my immunity in the fall and winter especially so I was interested in a tiny samples I received of Nuvua Cafe.  It is loaded with ingredients like ECGC, Ganoderma Extract and pomegranate. It can even keep those cravings at bay in addition to supporting your immune system. $32.99/30 sachets

Nancy Drew: Labyrinth of Lies Review + Giveaway #nancydrew


Who doesn't love Nancy Drew? I grew up reading all the stories and so did my tween. I don't know which one of us was more excited to check out this great new adventure games with Nancy Drew.  It is very exciting to thread your way through a maze of deceit in this epic Greek drama. Nancy has gotten herself embroiled in another over the top mystery as she has been doing for 40+ years. It never loses the fun though just like the books.

Here is the scene: A museum curator hires you to assist with the most anticipated event of the year, but artifacts from the exhibit are mysteriously disappearing. Hmm, lets see...could these mishaps possibly be connected to the amphitheater’s upcoming performance? Perhaps it is an unseen villain pulling strings behind the scenes. Who knows but this time you get to work with Nancy on your laptop or desktop to uncover the truth and recover the missing artifacts from the Labyrinth of Lies!  It is so much fun and the graphics are colorful and exciting.


You get to organize Greek Displays and Exhibits. You get to gill in for the museum curator and assemble exhibits before the grand opening too. Figure out how to use Stagecraft Expertise to survive backstage! Don't forget to sneak behind the curtains to explore the treacherous underworld stage sets.

You even get to experience the World of Ancient Greece in this game. How amazing it is to be able to solve challenging puzzles based on actual Greek myths and artwork?  We have been having a great time with this game. It is kind of hard to pull yourself away.

Even better, the perennial favorite The Hardy Boys are on the line too. You can use your in-game mobile phone to hear potentially lifesaving tips from Frank and Joe.  I always loved those two guys. They sound just dreamy on the phone too.

You have the ability to select difficulty levels too so you can play at Amateur or Master Sleuth level and erase any mistakes without starting over.  You can improve your detective abilities as you play along and get better and better. It is good because the younger kids won't get discouraged either with the easier levels. It is nice to see Nancy Drew still here and moving into the digital age. Her books are still wonderful but this is a fun option that is super for any Nancy Drew fan.

You can find this fun Nancy Drew Labyrinth of Lies game right on the web for the easiest of purchasing ever.  Don't forget to enter my Rafflecopter giveaway to win your own copy too. a Rafflecopter giveaway
