Sensitive Care

For Schick Hydro Silk Sensitive Care Replacement Blades

razor refills

What it is: A 5 blade replacement head with aloe strips for soothing sensitive skin.

Key Ingredients: metal, plastic, glycerin, aloe

How it feels/smells/looks: They smell fresh when you first buy them. They have five blades, two moisturizing strips, and a bottom rubber guard for sensitive skin like mine.

Why I like it: These are the only blades that I will ever use until they get discontinued. The type of razor that I have (razor/trimmer in one) might have something to do with it, because it allows the head to pivot and get all those difficult areas like around the ankle bones and knee caps. I have never gotten a nick with this blade, which is something that has never happened before. I used to use the disposable version of this blade, but it doesn’t work nearly as good as this one. I don’t get any missing spots. It cuts my hairs with ease, a feat I only thought possible using a blade made for men. Woman razors have come a long way.

With Love,

Selena

Walmart Haul

Heya Aspiring Gurus!

I recently went to Walmart for a few things and ended up collecting a little haul for you. I plan on hitting up Kmart later this week, so there might be a mini Kmart Haul as well. I have 5 USD in shopyourway points, a 2 USD off a 20 USD purchase coupon, and a 2 USD off of a Sally Hansen product. So, I am going to combine these offers to get 9 USD off. You can look forward to that post soon. For right now, I have a Walmart haul to show all of you!

Cappuccino mix

Great Value Cappuccino French Vanilla Mix: I was so surprised to see a big can like this for 2.98 USD. I had to buy it and I have already tried it. It is very good and such a great deal! Nowadays, I like lightened versions of coffee and this is already mixed. It is very convenient and this will last the month of both my dad and I using it. I love mixes like these to make at home for my chronic headaches. Caffeine is the only thing that works and its more natural than medicine, which I’m not really supposed to take anyway. Before I have people attack me for drinking coffee, I am allowed 16 oz of coffee a day and as many decafs as I want. I have a cup in the morning and possibly one more at night, if my headaches come. I don’t always have a cup in the morning either. There are plenty of days that I have no coffee like yesterday.

Lipton Green Tea

Lipton Green Tea in Honey Lemon (Decaf): 20 tea bags were 2.19 USD, which was a good deal as well, since other herbal teas were 2.50 and up. I have tried the Lipton Green Tea in a sample pack before and I really liked them. I am getting really sick of mint teas, so I thought that this would be a nice change of pace. I am taking this to work with me to have tea there and cut down on decaf coffee. I usually drink 16 oz of water at work, 8 oz of whole milk, 8 oz of coffee, 8 oz of decaf, and usually 16 oz of more water in the afternoon. This way, I can cut out the decaf and possibly the caf if I’m not suffering from headaches. Honey lemon sounds like it will be sweet, so no sugar or milk needed!

vitamins

Spring Valley Prenatal Adult Gummy: A bottle of this is 7.98 USD, which is expensive but I have to have it. I can also only remember to eat it, because they are gummies. They taste like candy and it reminds me to eat them. I really like these, but I haven’t tried other gummy brands. I prefer them over pill versions. I wonder if I can find gummy ones for iron supplements? I will check that out after pregnancy. I don’t have that problem anymore, since Aunt Flo hasn’t visited in four months.

shampoo

Pantene Pro-V Deep Cleanse Purifying Shampoo: I bought this clarifying shampoo for 3.98 USD, which I thought was worth a shot for the price. I am having a pregnancy issue, where not all of my hair’s natural oils get cleansed with shampoo. I’m hoping that this will strip all the oils off of my hair. My hair is dirty/oily after I freshly wash it. That is not normal. I’m producing so much oil from my scalp and pores. My face is a greasy mess by 2. I use paper towels, because I was wasting too many oil absorbing sheets a day. I do a weekly deep conditioning treatment, so I think that this will pair nicely with it.

face wipes

Equate Sensitive Cleansing Facial Wipes: This packet of 40 wipes were for 3.98, so another steal in my opinion. I have never tried them before, so they could be a loss as well. I plan on using these at work on the days that I don’t wear bb cream. Let’s face it, it’s not very often. I will bring my moisturizer with me, if I decide to cleanse my face to get rid of the oil buildup. I use wipes for a quick cleanse. I don’t usually use them as a replacement for washing my face, unless it’s really late at night and I’m lazy.

razor refills

Schick Hydro Silk Sensitive Care 5 Curve Sensing Blades Replacement Heads (4 ct): This is by far the most expensive thing that I bought, but these work wonders on my legs. It is honestly the best blades that I have ever used and so much better than the disposable version. It was 16. 98, but I had a 4 USD off coupon. It was only 12.98 USD for me.  Still, that is like 3.25 USD a piece. My legs needed them though and I can no longer use my trusted and well loved Veet. Each head will last me about two months of use, since I only shave me legs once a week. They get extremely irritated otherwise and it’s not a pretty sight.

movie

The Big Wedding: This was in the 3.97 USD bucket at Walmart. I have never seen this movie, but I love the cast  of characters in it. I’m hoping that it will be a worthwhile romantic comedy, which is one of my favorite genres. I’ll let you know how it is in an Entertainment Monthly.

dog harness

Lastly, I bought two harnesses for the dogs, but I will be bringing the large one back. It turns out that Mooky fits into the medium perfectly and Serena needs a small instead. If Walmart’s small does not fit, I will have no choice but to go to PetCo as they have more variety in sizes and styles. Mooky’s harness was 5 USD. The bigger one was 11.98, but I am returning it and getting a small, which will probably be 5 as well. I wanted my girls to match!

With Love,

Shadow Approved

PURINA Friskies FLAKED With Tuna
59¢ US CENTS
5.5 oz
Makes five 1.1 oz meals

5 out of 5 stars

Disclaimer: All opinions are my own and I purchased this with my own money.

I mentioned in my Mini KMart Haul that I would be reviewing this and I hope that everyone who has a cat finds this review helpful. My cat is named Shadow, because she loves to follow me everywhere. She is like my little shadow, hence the name. She is a British short-haired cat and is all black except for her tuxedo bow of white. She is 10 years old and has a sensitive stomach. Now that you have an idea of my cat, we can continue unto the review.

1. Usage: I give my cat around 1.1 oz of this wet food a day. I get five meals out of it. I believe that for the price, the product is definitely worth it. 5 out of 5 stars

2. Packaging: The can is very eye-catching with the bright colors and a cute cat. The can was not that important to me, because as long as my cat likes it, I would buy the ugliest can in the world. It was not that important in the overall buying process, but it was cute. 5 out of 5 stars

3. Scent: I do not know of any wet food that does not have a major stench. I hate the smell of tuna, but my cat loves it. So, I put up with it. Tuna is never not going to smell like tuna. As far as wet cans go, this tuna is a lot less smelly than most. 4 out of 5 stars

4. Performance: My cat loves this stuff and looks forward to eating it everyday. I ran out and I feel guilty, because she loves it so. This wet food did not make her sick. It gets my approval. 5 out of 5 stars

5. Ingredients: I know that some people by-products would make them cringe, but my cat loves this and is not sensitive to it. She is sensitive to most foods. As long as there is no parabens or BPA, I will continue to feed this to her. It is so hard to find things that she likes and is not sensitive to. 4 out of 5 stars

6. Results: The verdict is out! I will be repurchasing this, because I have found the best wet food for my cat. I know some people will say that it is hard to judge by 1 can, but if anything changes, I will let everyone know. 5 out of 5 stars

Overall, I give this product 4.6 out of 5 stars. My cat loves this and that is enough for me to keep buying it. Feel free to comment or request anything!
