Yes To Tomatoes Detoxifying Charcoal Facial Wipes Review

I bought this 30-count pack of facial wipes at Target for $5.99.

The detoxifying charcoal formula claims to help remove dirt and impurities. They do give me that deep clean feeling, like an exfoliant… and it has a fantastic fresh scent.

What I don’t like about these charcoal facial wipes… is that they are black… so I’m unable to see where the mascara and eye liner is, that I’ve wiped from my eyes… because those are black too! I get it… “little black wipe”… cute marketing… but sadly I risk putting my removed make-up all over my face if I can’t see it on the wipe!

I’m not sure if the wipe has to be black, because of the charcoal properties… but I will not be buying this product again, solely because of that. If you use a make-up remover prior to a facial wipe… then give this product a try… you’ll probably love it!

I give these charcoal wipes 2 paws.

Obama Llama Party Game Review!

You NEED Obama Llama at your next game night! Seriously,… go buy it right now, LOL.

The name is so hilariously ridiculous, that I was immediately intrigued. I bought it at Target, for $24.99, with the intention of introducing it during our usual family game time, after Christmas dinner.

We usually play traditional party game favorites like Scattergories, Charades or Catch Phrase… so getting the 20+ family members on board with such a crazy named game was a feat in itself! 

The game of… “can you find the rhyme in time?” has 3 different card types… ‘Describe it’, ‘Solve it’ and name specific cards of famous people, that you act out. For example… this is a ‘solve it’ question: Ace Ventura actor is very furry… Answer: Jim Carrey is hairy.

Learning a new game can be challenging, especially with 20+ alcohol-infused family members LOL… but this game is worth it! I suggest you read the game play instructions, then do a test round with each type of card… so that everyone understands how to play. Then split into teams… and let the shouting begin!

I will definitely be featuring Obama Llama at future game nights! Thank you Big Potato for your creativity. 

I give this game 4 paws!

Sally Hansen Salon Effects French Mani Gold Cabaret Review

Gold glitter french tip nail polish strips?! …what?! …that’s what I thought to myself when I first saw these!

Now that I’ve tried them… I’m more like… ughhh.

The gold glitter tips peeled off both thumbs after only 48 hours… while doing a few dishes. I ended up peeling off all the strips the next day, which only took a few minutes. 

I’ve been using the Sally Hansen Salon Effects Nail Polish Strips for years… long before I started this blog… and I’ve never had a bad experience with them until now.

They were very easy to apply,… Gold glitter tips first, then the clear strips over the top of the whole nail… took less than 30 minutes total. I’m always on the go… so I love these strips because there is no dry time and there are so many patterns available! But… these did not last even close to the “up to 10 days” as listed on the box. I’m not sure if these didn’t have the same longevity as the full pattern strips because they are the French mani… but I would not purchase these again. 

I do have another French tip design I’ve already purchased… with pink polka dots on white tips… so I will try those and see if they too only last 48 hours and report back!

Depending on promotional sales, I purchase these at CVS or Target for anywhere between  $6 – $12. For more detail on these polish strips, read my other blog posts for Sally Hansen Salon Effects Nail Polish Strips!

I love the design, but not the quality…

Burt’s Bees Pink Grapefruit Facial Cleansing Towelettes Review


I bought this 30-count pack of 99.1% natural Burt’s Bees Pink Grapefruit Facial Cleansing Towelettes for $5.79 from Target.

The first facial wipes I ever tried were the pink grapefruit fragrance in another brand… and I was hooked!!  It’s such an invigorating scent. Formulated for normal to oily skin, and gentle enough to use every day… which is great, because sometimes I use 2 a day… one in the morning and one before I go to bed!  These leave my skin feeling clean and refreshed… AND remove my waterproof eye make-up incredibly easy!  PLUS, there are no parabens, phthalates or petrolatum (chemical preservatives that are harmful to your skin)!

In under a minute, I wipe the towelette all over my face and I’m feeling totally refreshed… with no need to rinse!!  I’m obsessed with that part!

Burt’s Bees Peach & Willow Bark Exfoliating Facial Cleansing Towelettes Review


I have already re-bought these Burt’s Bees exfoliating facial cleansing towelettes… before I even had time to review it for you!

I paid $5.99 for the Peach & Willow Bark 25-ct pack at one of my favorite places on earth…Target, LOL.

As you know, I love pre-moistened facial wipes because they are easy, quick and efficient… so for a non-morning person… this is PERFECT!  These exfoliate the skin, while removing dirt, oil and make-up… with no need to rinse.  It easily removes my blackest mascara and eye liner with one swipe!  The willow bark, exfoliates with salicylic acid and can be used on normal to dry skin.  The peach scent is fresh & fruity… and I am slightly obsessed with it.

99.2% natural and dermatologist tested, these contain no parabens, phthalates or petrolatum… which are all chemicals that are super harmful to our skin and body!

These disposable wipes can be used anytime, anywhere… so they are perfect to take on the go!

I love the Burt’s Bees product line and what the company stands for… so it’s no surprise to me that these towelettes are amazing.

Twizzlers Pull ‘n’ Peel Candy Raspberry, Wild Berry & Lemonade Review


Twizzlers has created a new red, white and blue themed treat… that is quite honestly… fireworks for my taste buds!!

I am such a long time fan of the traditional strawberry flavored Twizzlers and the cherry Pull ‘n’ Peel… not to mention Twizzlers recent ingenious creation… the strawberry filled bites… Yummy! OMG they are by far my favorite non-chocolate candy!!

This new Raspberry, Wild Berry and Lemonade Pull ‘n’ Peel flavor is SO good and perfect for summer.  Just in time for Memorial Day and 4th of July!  The flavors separately, by pulling them apart, is not as good… Together they are fantastic!

I purchased this 12 oz bag at Target for $2.15… and I will definitely be buying another because this one is long gone LOL.

I give this delicious product 4 paws!

Up & Up Nail Polish Remover Pads Review


Fed up like me, with sore hands from removing glitter nail polish?! These nail polish remover pads are a much better alternative to bottle nail polish remover & cotton rounds.  This is my first time venturing away from the traditional nail polish remover in a bottle. Despite the many acetone-soaked pad options available these days, I decided to start my sampling with this box from Target’s Up & Up brand.  Priced at $3 for a box of 10 extra thick felt pads, these claim to “help remove gel nail polish”.

This advanced formula “contains naturally derived coconut, avocado and olive oils” and claims to “help strengthen and nourish nails”.  So how did it perform?!?

  • Gelliebeans Gel Nail Polish — Did NOT help remove this gel nail polish, at all.  Nothing happened.  This is the true gel nail polish that requires the use of an LED light to set.
  • Sally Hansen OMGel! Polish — works wonderfully to remove polish on all 10 nails, with only 1 pad!
  • Sally Hansen Glitter Nail Polish Strips — this took 2 pads & I still had to clean up my nails & fingers with traditional bottle remover and cotton rounds.  Very messy & still a slight struggle.
  • Sally Hansen Non-Glitter Nail Polish Strips — Easily removed with only 1 pad!
  • OPI traditional, non-gel nail polish — works like perfection, with only 1 pad.

These pads are very very saturated with acetone, so although they easily remove most polishes, they can spread the polish onto your fingers, making quite the mess.  I wish these pads were slightly larger.  I will continue sampling nail polish remover pads… until I find the very best one!

I give this product 3 paws.
