Review: Skinnygirl Daily On-The-Go Bars

Retail Price: $12.99 for a box of 5 at Skinnygirldaily.com

Today I am reviewing the Skinnygirl Daily On-The-Go Bars. The flavor I was able to try out was Coco-nut with Peanut Butter. Each bar is only 180 calories, natural, kosher, and high fiber. 

The size of the bar is perfect for those people who are on the go (thus the name lol!). I had it in my purse and ate mine as a snack after work. The bar itself is packaged in a chic looking wrapper, which I really like. The image on the wrapper is pretty much exactly what the bar looked like. Chewy bar with a sweet drizzle over the top. As for the taste, oh my goodness, it tasted AMAZING! It had a peanut buttery, nutty, delicious flavor. It felt as if I was being naughty and eating a candy bar! I really enjoyed it, and could have easily gone back for more!

The only issue I have is the price of these lil suckers. $12.99 for a box of 5 at Skinnygirldaily.com, excluding shipping. That equals to almost $2.60 per bar. To me that is just a bit on the steep side. There is no value there, and for the average person who has a budget, I don't think these are affordable at all. If the prices were more reasonable, then I wouldn't have a single negative thing to say!

If you would like to purchase this item, it can be found at skinnygirldaily.com and Meijer's

Pros: Great packaging, great presentation, tastes great, good variety of flavors.
Cons: Not widely available, price is very expensive.

Review: Secret Clinical Strength Stress Response Antiperspirant/Deodorant

Retail Price: $7.99- $9.99 

Today I am reviewing the Secret Clinical Strength Antiperspirant/Deodorant. This is suppose to help deal with stress sweat, which smells worse than normal sweat. Personally I don't have a issue with sweating as some do. I'd say I am in the normal range. However I did use this deodorant only for a solid month so I could really see how it worked in all situations. 

So lets start with the scent. The one that I got was the Serene Citrus scent. It smelled of exactly that, citrus. I quite enjoy the smell of it. Its a nice change of pace from the standard floral smelling scents. Application of the product was very easy, it has a few little spots in the top where the product is pushed thru, and can be easily and evenly applied. It comes out white, but quickly fades to clear. It lasts me all day long, I have not had any issues with this product at all. I normally get ready for work in the morning around 7am, and don't shower until around 7-8pm at night, and it is still going strong. I have a physical job, so I do sweat throughout the day, and this kept me dry and smelling great. I am definitely recommending this to anyone who may need a stronger deodorant. It has proven to work well during all those life moments! 

If you would like to purchase this item, it can be found at drug and mass retailers nationwide as well at various online retailers. 

Pros: Great design, great product, does exactly what it claims.

Cons: None
