Dancecrazy stretch strap by salsacrazy inc. review

<a href="http://www.tomoson.com/?code=TOP9f248c8f671c057e7b21bf247875600f" rel="nofollow"><img style="display: none" src="http://www.tomoson.com/images/front/pixel.png" /></a>

I recently got a dance crazy stretch strap in exchange for my honest review it is from the company salsacrazy. 

I didn't realize how much this product itself would change my life. 

I have had knock knees my whole life, my knees have been my biggest struggle my whole life and I started seeing a physical therapist in my teen years. Well that costs money and I didn't have insurance anymore. I since then have moved and as hard as this is to admit I have no license and I have no safe place to walk and my husband is gone all day at work. 

I've lost all strength in my knees it hurts standing, sitting, walking, especially steps. Running? Haha yeah we don't talk about that around here. 

Well the reason I'm spilling my guys is because I tested the product and was finally able to stretch my legs like I should. My knees shook and without this product My leg would have just gone back down to the floor. But no it held me comfortably, allowing me to get a stretch in my knees that I haven't felt in almost ten years since my physical therapy. 

I have circulation back in my knees and I looked at my husband almost in tears because of how good I felt/feel. Stairs aren't so much an issue now. Neither is yoga. 

There is my confessed love for this product. But before I go more about the product itself. 

It's made with durable material and has numerous loops on the siding. It's great for people of all heights. 

You can view it on amazon.com https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B00YA2N542/ref=yo_ii_img

I do feel a true loyalty to this company now and intend on purchasing other products of theirs. They are high quality and therapeutic, their shipping was also fast and very well packaged.

Crowdtap rave

I know I have mentioned Crowdtap before in a recent publish but I am just so pleased because like I mentioned before you can win gift cards from them. Earlier this month I won a few and now I have finally used them up. 

I was able to get my husband a game he really wanted and tonight I bought a lip balm from sephora. It was on sale for $5 and I did end up paying 1.68 sephora is super expensive so I feel so lucky to have even a lip balm along the way. 

I also that you can get samples from sephora too. I will be reviewing both items soon but probably the balm first and the game when my husband has time to fill me in on all details. 

Keep tappin crowdtappers! If you haven't been on Crowdtap this month everything starts over on the 1st of August.

Emailing companies for products

I know that there have been articles like the $39 experiment and things like that. I just want to give my own opinion on the subject and give my personal do's and don't's. 

DO email companies if you love their products. DONT go looking to get rewarded. Companies need to know if their product is doing well how you like so they don't go changing the formula around. Sometimes they might feel they aren't reaching their customers interest level and do something drastic. Let them know you are loyal to them. 

DO email companies if you tried a product and there was a problem or if you didn't like the taste etc. DONT be mean and most of all DONT lie to a company that you hated a product to get a free product from them. It's my pet peeve with the whole scenario. Just. Don't. Do. It. 

DO give recommendations, or ideas on how you think they could improve. 

DO ask if they offer samples. If you want to try before you buy because you don't want to spend $30 on a product that might make you break out. Worse thing they can say is no and if they say yes you might find a company you would love to drop a pretty penny on (like my love for natures gate 😝) 

Give your opinion people it's your money, and body we are what keeps companies healthy so why shouldn't they do the same for us? 

But please I cannot reiterate this enough do not lie! 

If any of you have found great products you would like to share and give your own review please feel free to comment. Let me know your likes and dislikes. Let me know how emailing companies has worked for you. 

Naturallysaavy.com a recommendation to all

As you guys know I'm in love with organic products and living. I really enjoy teaching people about organic living because it is important and many don't really understand it or why. 

I came across a site that teaches you everything!!! It's like being in a organic online classroom you watch a video read a little article and take a quiz. 

Even though I'm constantly learning and reading about bad ingredients I have learned a lot from them. What I didn't know was that after you complete a mission, they will send you samples of organic things. Nothing big but I have appreciated the products they have sent because I didn't know they existed. 

They have sent me a few fish oil omega swirl packets which are from the brand barleans. I have added them in juice and who knew that fish oil gets rid of a bad headache?! They also sent me a coupon for a free thing of organic juice which I haven't gotten to use yet and they sent me a little packet of acai lemonade powder you add to water. All organic and I loved it. 

They have already taught me so much and helped me discover knew products. They also have an area afterward that shows you better alternative organic products to replace the "normal" groceries you usually buy. Check them out and let me know what you think. Www.naturallysaavy.com

Natures gate

I recently came across a brand called natures gate. I am always on the lookout for organic products, or especially things GOOD for my skin, which is sensitive. I always get nervous buying something and finding out I wasted my money. 

So I did ask them if they were willing to send me some samples which they did and now I am in love!!!!!! All their products are vegan, para an free, non-GMO, soy free, mineral oil free, petroleum free, PEG free, butylene glycol free, and cruelty free! 

Some I have used up already but the first thing I tried was their papaya lotion. 

I have to say that as soon as I opened the little heavenly packet the scent was beautiful! After I applied it the scent stayed quite awhile it was non greasy and smooth. Their lotion retails at $9.99 and found out the Walgreens.com sells their papaya lotion! 

They also sent me 
All their products smelt and felt great no breakouts and I felt so clean and happy after cleansing, moisturizing, and applying the night cream and eye cream I slept so well and woke up glowing. 

I also had one of my best friends try some too (they sent me quite a few packets) and she now is in love with the line too. 

I also received a packet of hand soap and made my hands clean and moisturized. My husband has skin sensitivity and he had no issue using this soap either. 

They also sent me a packet of shower gel but I was so excited I used it all up and stupidly put the empty packet in the trash but it was acai. Mmmm

All in all no one can beat natures gate to me, they aren't even super expensive either usually between $5-$10 per product and well worth the money. 

Even my super manly man construction working husband thinks they are the best. It's always nice to hear your husband tell you, you smell nice or how soft and radiant your skin looks. 

Natures gate; ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍😍 

This is the only way to describe how I feel about this. 

Crowdtap: let your voice be heard.

So I really feel the need to promote this site, I have been on crowdtap for a little now and now have the hang of it. It's really refreshing when a site wants to hear your opinions and not just advertise to your friends constantly! 

They have what is called "quick hits" which are quick questions you ask HONESTLY which helps a brand understand their customers more for better and improved products. For example Splenda is one of the brands I have. I refuse to consume Splenda because of the dangerous artificial sweeteners so I tell them when I can that I do not use their product for blah blah blah reasons. But anyway! To my next point. 

For every quick hit you complete you receive 20 points. 

The point system is easy for every 100 points you get an entry the more entries the higher chance of winning a prize (usually $5 Amazon gift cards) sometimes you win sometimes you don't. I have received 3 and was able to buy my husband a video game he'd been wanting forever (assassins creed black flag!) it's nice they give back to people who voice their opinion. 

If you collect enough points you get in the "top 100" which give you a few more entries I believe. 

They also have other tasks which vary in points whether it's posting a picture or answering a question they have. Answers must be approved and are rated by other crowdtappers. Don't bs the text challenges! Sometimes they even have sample sharing which is nice and fun. You review it and tell crowdtap your opinion right on the site. 

Everything starts over beginning of every month. 

I only am upset with them because their text challenges well the typing is superrrrrr slow. I meant one letter a second no joke and hope they fix it soon. If you are frustrated don't worry there is no penalty for not completing content or text challenges. 

But if you enjoy giving your opinion and you care about what products come out sign up today www.crowdtap.com

Social nature: vega sports

I received vega sports protein powder, electrolyte powder and before and after workout drink powders. 

For those that don't know socialnature.com is a product review site for organic products and they are amazing. 

However, while I am delighted to see organic and vegan workout powders, I couldn't get past the taste. Even though I felt great it took all my might to choke them down and only got through about half and gave up on the last packet. 

My husband also tried them and could not do it either. It wasn't personal taste turning me off it was the fact that it was grainy and didn't taste right. 

The product is worth a shot to try at least because of the benefits, if you can get through it great! If not, don't feel bad. 

Vega sports I feel bad for saying this but my star report; +1 star for being organic, +1 star for after affects, +1 for vegan (vegans need love too!) but that's all. ⭐️⭐️⭐️

Bzzagent: tide pods

I received tide pods free from Bzzagent and they had sent me about 25 individual sample tide pods. I have given some to friends to try who will also be giving me feedback after they use a few. 

My personal review of the tide pods is this, they are highly convienient and I really enjoy first off that it is less messy to put a tide pod in the wash than liquid detergent. They leave no mess and dissolve well I found no remnants what so ever. 

I didn't notice any particular aroma from them as much as a normal detergent but my clothes smelt clean and looked clean. 

A huge reason my husband and I were excited to try this campaign is because my husband is allergic to tide detergent and tide pods claim to be good with sensitive skin no harsh chemicals eye. 

I figured tide and Bzzagent would get a pretty accurate review on that aspect of it worked for my husband and it did. No irritation or rashes. Tide has kept to their word, and has delivered a great product. 

I had my doubts when seeing them in the store before now I can honestly say they are worth the cash. 

I also find it worth the cash so that when I am traveling around or visiting people in another town it's more convienient to carry tide pods for laundry than a huge hug of detergent. 

Five stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Rimmel london worth it or not?

Absolutely yes! I love makeup but rimmel has always sold high quality makeup for a cheaper price. 

Their mascara (scandal eyes) has proven to be the best I have bought. I have tried numerous mascaras but rimmel isn't caky or stinky. It's a very nice formula that never fails to make my eyelashes look great. 

It also doesn't irritate my eyes like other mascaras. 

Rimmel eyeshadow; I have one palette and it has proven to be long lasting (especially with a primer) it blends well, highly pigmented. Their eyeshadow is sure to make your eye color "Pop" 

Rimmel lip laquer; the one I purchased was on sale while its a little too bright for me it smells incredible. I don't find it too sticky. 

Rimmel eye liner; I have the exaggerate waterproof eyeliner and it never fails to define my eyes. It lasts all day, not irritating, and is dark. 

Rimmel gel eyeliner; now this is where I'm at a crossroads, I loved one of their gel eyeliners it had a built in brush and it lasted forever but now I can't find it where I live now :( 

I purchased the scandal eyes gel liner (one with separate brush and the thing has a crown on the top)
and it was not so good. It was caky, flaky, and I didn't like the application. 

Fortunately I emailed them because companies want to hear feedback. They were extremely kind and appreciated the feedback. 

All in all yes Rimmel is fantastic and it is my go to daily makeup routine (even though I try others) it's hard to compare to rimmel.

On top of it all they do not test on animals. Oh rimmel you have so won my heart. <3

New site that led me to samples


They have a large range, nicely organized, and while some were expired at the same time there were more hits than misses. 

I swear I probably spent 2 hours on that dang site and have at least 20 samples heading my way. 

I will post what I get, I'm becoming a sample junkie. Inside its like a big accomplishment when I collect a whole bunch of them. I also enjoy seeing samples along with the shitty bills that I dread to open. 

Maybe it's because the packaging makes everything look important even though it's a small sample pack of lotion lol. 

I will update this post when I find more sites but seriously this one is good.

Carefree liners... :( one star

I'm going to be honest I didn't do many tasks for this campaign from influenster. First off I would feel awkward spamming my male cousins with my opinion on panty liners. Also I'm not going to post something that I don't actually like. 

I give them credit for what they are but in my opinion I can't imagine a woman using this for her monthly. They are a mm thin, what's the point? Second of all they just look small. 

I don't really have much to say except

1 star, 
Okay I'll be nice 2 stars. Carefree is a good and popular brand I just don't like this product.

Schick hydro silk razors 5 stars

So I honestly wasn't sure how these would turn out. They are disposables and most of the time disposables are cheap and cause nicks and dull quickly. These razors are actually freaking amazing. They last awhile and don't get goopy, at least mine haven't. I got it free from Bzzagent who also sent me a can of skitimate and a loofah. I chose to shave with my normal soap to see how well my skin would react. 

Five stars!

Purina one smartblend for cats

I have gotten purina one smartblend free from influenster. I have to say first off that thank you God for influenster, I am broke and ran out of cat food today. 

The excessive meowing was breaking my heart but as I stepped on my porch there it was. A nice 18 ounce bag with a coupon for a free $10 bag. (3.5)oz 

My cats were immediately excited as I opened it, usually I give my cats purina cat chow. But the smart blend they fell in love with. I have to say I'm loving the stuff because my cats love it. And my Scottish fold has an easier time eating it because of the oval shape. 

Thank you purina and influenster! 

5 stars!

Purpose behind this blog

I have slowly but surely turned into a sample junkie, I think it's great to be able to get things for free before taking the plunge into buying a product that may just be crap. 

Too often have I spent money on products that were disappointing but of course I already spent cold hard cash. 

I want this blog to be fun, and I don't want to go on and on about advertising. I too have gotten frustrated with the semi phony liking of a product. If it's horrible I'm not afraid to say it, and I would hope that the company sees as well. 

I also would like to show you guys where I get stuff, how I get it and how much effort is put into it. To be honest I don't mind occasional facebook posting about a product that I think is relevant to friends. But no one wants to be the friends that puts up more ads than YouTube and facebook combined. 

A lot of people say some of this stuff is easy to obtain but I find some only are if you are willing to jump through massive amounts of social media hoops. 

The sites I have been using usually is:
Bzzagent.com at first it was a pain in the ass to get a campaign, there were not many demographic surveys, and my points sucked. Eventually I had gotten a campaign, did my tasks and since then it's been way easier. I can post minimally to facebook (Twitter, I let it all fly out) and they really rather have people focus on talking in person and showing the products. 

They are a pretty great site and I don't feel I have to spend all my time on their site to get something to review. 

Influenster: ah, my love/hate product testing site. The pros, they send amazing boxes, full sized, and like I said amazing.

The cons? Well, first off since they changed their site I feel like I have to spend a lot of time reviewing products I have personally bought, and quite honestly I don't have much so what is there to review? You have to stay active and it feels you have to be on there everyday. 

Second, when you do get something which honestly doesn't feel very common, you have to do a lot of tasks. Which is fine except that it's a lot of advertising that my friends will just look past anyway. I feel you are less likely to receive anything if you skip a task. It also bases a lot of your impact score on how many friends you have on social media. 

Samplesource.com I was unsure at first and thought maybe they were a scam but I actually was able to get 7/8 offered samples by them this morning and I'm pretty pleased about it. Some of the stuff included toothpaste, shampoo, granola, etc. sample size but pretty cool all in all. 

Pinchme.com okay I was able to get a couple things that have not arrived yet, I had waited for sample Tuesday this morning. 9am in Washington, well they moved it. My husband and I are used to night shift hours, so I stayed up excited, I know they go within five minutes or so. Well needless to say I was kind of super pissed. 

I know what you're thinking this chick is nuts, well only kinda. 

Freestufffinder.com they find the sites with samples and they give you a direct link, I joined the vip emails so when the site updates I can swoop up samples. The only problem I have is that some expire but are still up and I tend to run into samples I have ordered before. 

I'll be posting samples and telling you if the suck or not, hope you guys can enjoy finding your own free samples as well. I figure it's nice to something other than bills otherwise who wants to check the mail anymore these days?
