Dry Shampoo Hask

I enjoyed the citrus scent, it was a nice pick me up at any time of day I used it. It wasn’t strong and smelled refreshing.  There was no residue left on my dark brown hair which sometimes can be an issue with dry shampoo. If there was, it easily absorbed and mixed into my hair. It last all day and really didn’t need to apply during the day.

It absorbed the oil quickly and my hair looked great. I could go another day or 2..maybe 3 without washing my hair. Which was perfect for when I drove from CT to FL recently.  Also with sweating here in FL ( I forgot how hot & humid it is all the time) I need a little help. My scalp gets oily but if I was my thick long locks often my scalp get oily quicker and my hair doesn’t look as healthy or bouncy.  This definitely shot up in my top 3 for dry shampoos.  I also like that I can find it at Ulta make sure to check other places that you have seen Hask being sold at as well.

Dinner with Barilla ProtienPLUS penne- Ssausage & Tomato Veggie Pasta

I’ve been loving this Barilla ProteinPLUS pasta BzzAgent sent me to try out.   I already made a yummy shrimp dinner with the spaghetti and knew I wanted to do something with sausage with the penne.

Barilla ProteinPLUS sausage & tomato veggie sauce

If you missed my Shrimp & Broccoli dish with Barilla ProteinPLUS pasta here is some info on this pasta.

according to the front of the box:

  • Its loaded with 17 grams of protein in a 3.5 oz portion.
  • Crafted with simple ingredients, like flaxseed, barley and oats
  • Made with protein-rich chickpeas, lentils and egg whites
  • Great source of fiber ( 7 grams)  and ALA omega-3

It tastes great & is filling.

Though I did look at the label and this is not for a serving size but I never have a serving size when it comes to pasta but just wanted to throw that out there.

  • Barilla ProteinPLUS  2 oz serving size , 10 grams of protein, 4 grams of fiber, 190 calories
  • Barilla Whole grain : 2oz serving size, 8 grams of protein, 6 grams of fiber , 180 calories
  • Heartland Whote Wheat : 1cup dry serving size, 7 grams of protein, 7 grams of fiber 220 calories

Ingredients  used:

  • Barilla ProteinPLUS penne pasta
  • Sausage
  • diced tomatoes ( with olive oil & garlic)
  • mushrooms
  • red pepper
  • spinach
  • parmesan cheese
  • chicken broth
  • onion powder
  • garlic & pepper seasoning
  • Italian seasoning

Barilla Protein Plus sausage & tomato veggie sauce

 

First add water to a pot to boil , add salt.

Next brown the sausage in a pan in med-high . Halfway through I added the diced red bell pepper.

I then added the sliced mushrooms. Stir

Next add a 15oz can of diced tomatoes . Stir

Add some chicken broth.

barilla proteinplus sausage & veggie sauce

My water was boiling at the point so I added the pasta to the water.  I cooked for about 11 minutes.

I wanted some green and had some a little spinach so I rough chopped it…. also meaning I already washed my cutting board so I tore it into pieces with my hands haha.

If you want it a little saucier , you can add more broth.

Next add some parmesan cheese. Stir.

Drain pasta.

For the most part I always keep the sauce & pasta separate because sometimes I like more sauce than pasta or like to evenly coat the pasta. Depends on my mood 🙂

Add pasta to a bowl ( or plate) top with the tomato veggie sauce and mix.

Top with parmesan cheese & ENJOY!

Discover Origins

I don’t think I’ve really tried any Origins products before. I’ve always heard good things so was happy when I received this sample bundle of skincare products from Origins & Influenster.

Cleanser: Checks & Balances ( frothy face wash)

Our clever cleanser balances faces with dry and oily places. This gentle, frothy face wash with Broad Leaf Kelp Extract, Wheat Protein and Tourmaline discourages excess oil production while protecting dry prone zones. Plus the aroma of Bergamot, Spearmint and Lavender refreshes. Skin feels comfortably clean. Never tight, pulled or parched.

  • I really liked the way this cleanser foamed/ moussed up . I splashed water on my face and rubbed the cleanser onto my skin. It foamed up and I felt a little like Mrs Doubtfire when she stuffed her face in the cream pie. Lol It has a nice sorta minty scent which is energizing and relaxing. This left my face cleansed & refreshed.

Moisturizer: GinZing Energy-boosting moisturizer

hydrates & revs up radiance
This lightweight, oil-free, energizing moisturizer instantly hydrates and revs up radiance. It’s fortified with legendary skin-boosters like Panax Ginseng and Coffee Bean. Lackluster-looking skin is rapidly refreshed and revitalized to create a healthy, vibrant glow.
  • I really loved the scent of this moisturizer. It was enegizing & refreshing.. smelled just like an orange. You know when you start to peel and that orange mist comes out of the peel? Just like that. It absorbed nicely into my skin and left my skin hydrated, smooth, & soft.

Mask : Clear Improvement Active Charcoal mask to clean pores

Nature’s complexion clean-up crew clears the way for skin to act its best. Bamboo Charcoal acts like a magnet to draw out deep-dwelling pore-cloggers, White China Clay absorbs environmental toxins, Lecithin dissolves impurities. Skin looks clear, feels perfectly pure.

I really enjoyed this mask because it didn’t make my skin feel tight while it dried. My skin felt clean, soft, & clean after using it.

Night cream: High-potency Night-A-Mins  (mineral-enriched renewal cream)

renews, refreshes, hydrates

Put dullness to rest. Our famous night cream is fortified with time-released resurfacers plus Vitamins C, E and H, minerals and moisture-rich replenishers. While relaxing aromas lull you to sleep, skin sloughs away dry, dead layers. Deletes dullness overnight so you wake up radiant and refreshed.

  • This cream is very hydrating. I did notice it left my skin looking a little greasy/ shiny but since it was at night I didn’t mind as much. It wasn’t sticky or anything. When I woke up my skin looked good, hydrated, and oh so soft.

Eye Cream: GinZing ( Refreshing Eye Cream to brighten & depuff)

Origins GinZing Eye cream

Our clinically-proven morning-after eye cream instantly reduces dark circles. Unsightly bags and puffiness virtually disappear. It’s formulated with Coffee Beans, Panax Ginseng, Magnolia Extract and natural optic brighteners. Rapidly wakes up, refreshes and restores radiance to tired eyes.
 Rapidly wakes up, refreshes, & restores radiance
  • This really does brighten up your eye area. It is a pearly cream that absorbs nicely into the skin brightening & hydrating the eye area.

 

I enjoyed using this skin care routine . Each product did what it claimed. My skin looked healthy, felt and looked great. I enjoyed the scents of each product as well, they didn’t smell artificial ..just natural. They were refreshing & energizing. Very pleased with my experience.

I wish I could have attended the event they had for mini facials but I was out of town and couldn’t figure out how to apply for the one in FL vs the invite I received ( which was for CT)

Definitely check these products out, especially the moisturizers.
