Happy Valentines Day! Hope its full of Glee!

Glee Gum is not just all natural gum, but they also have Do It Yourself Candy Kits.  I loved the Sea Weed Gummies (You can read my review here.) And, now I just tried the Make Your Own Chocolate Kit

The Chocolate can either be doubled boiled, or microwaved.  I microwaved mine in a glass pyrex bowl.  I have a two year old, I  really don't have time, well mostly the patience to clean and use the double boiler.  Plus the only double boiler I have, I use for making soap.  

Making the chocolate in the microwave is as easy as melting down a pack of organic cocoa butter. I then added the cocoa powder, and sugar to the melted butter.  I also added a little bit of Vanilla to take away from the dark chocolates bitterness.  Once that was mixed, I checked the temp of the chocolate with the indicator stick before I added the starter crystals, stirred again before scooping into the candy wrappers.

I added blueberries in the middle of my dark chocolate treats, and put Walnuts on top too. Really you can add whatever you want. I think next time I want to add a little bit of oat meal, and some sugared coconut. The blueberries, and walnut are more for my husband. Tho Sy, and I loved the dark chocolate too!

See how easy the directions are? It really is an easy, delicious treat. There is even a side of the box that is educational about how Aztec Legend says Quetzalcoatl brought the cocoa tree from paradise to earth. ;

Glee added a few whole cocoa beans, I don't think I have ever had a whole cocoa bean.  So that was pretty cool! The texture reminded me of a coffee bean.

You can check Glee Gum out online, or give the Glee Guy some love on facebook, and twitter.  They really are a great company with all natural treats (If you've never tried their candy kits, or gum.. You really should! they make all flavors imaginable in the gum, even with sugar free.)

I received these items for free to review.  Opinions are my own and may defer from yours.

Thursday, January 24 Monthly Subscription Box Review

Healthy Surprise boxes are All Natural, Real Foods that are Vegan, Gluten Free, and Soy free.  This box had no chance in my house.  My whole family loves snacks like this.  This is a great way to break in the new year with eating better.  There is no excuse that you have no time, or the energy to buy healthy snacks.

I am hoping you all are a lot like I am when it comes to trying different snacks.  I enjoy a variety of things.  I can't eat the same thing day in, and day out so I like to switch things up.

This is a healthy monthly Subscription box called Healthy Surprise.  It really was a great surprise.  When the box came I opened it right away, and it was packaged in layers.  The first layer (Yes it was like receiving a gift!) had fruit bars, mango fruit leather squares, some bags of different kinds of dried fruit/nut/mixes.  There really was so many items I thought wow! but I wasn't done unpacking.  I then took out the 2nd layer and unwrapped to find huge bags of chocolate granola, more nuts/fruit, freeze dried fruit, chocolate macaroons. The Kale chips were really good too. There really is so much in these boxes that you have to try it.

Every box has full size items in them!! No sample sizes, or the same boring thing.  My family loved this box.  We are going wheat free.  My son enjoys the dried fruit (being he will not eat anything that is wet, so this is how I trick him into eating his vegetables, and fruits.) My husband has been wheat free for awhile now, and he loved the nuts/fruit mixes.  His favorite was one that had sunflower seeds, and pumpkin seeds in with the dried fruit.  We also fought over the macaroons to where I went out and found them at Whole Foods.. for $7.00!! You can get this whole box delivered to you for $33/month that has 16-20 servings, enough for 1-2 people.  I think it's a great deal considering we are human, and we need to eat! I'd much rather eat foods like this.  I also like that I can try different things, and they do all the work for me finding them. If I really like something, I know what to buy when I am out, and about.

Don't forget to send an abundance of love to Healthy Surprise on Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest.  I honestly believe more companies should care like this.

I received this box for free for my honest review, I was not paid to like, or post this.  I just like to try new things!

Harvey Prince Eau de CREME Spray Review & 5 Winner Giveaway!

With Valentines approaching I just want to smell Sweet for my Sweety!  Age does not matter when it comes to this sweet playful Eau de CREME natural fragrance by Harvey Prince.  My favorite thing about Harvey Prince is the uniqueness of the scents, and the fact they are an eco-friendly company that was tired of those over powering chemical base expensive brands.  

I have Fling, Flirt, and now Creme! All which trigger the senses, but I am in love with the Eau de Creme Spray.  I was sent two bottles of the 8.8ml sprays, and I've already used one! I used it every day for the past month. The best way to explain it is, it's a sweet, chocolate-creme scent.  It's not overpowering, or a fake "sweet" smell.  It's genuine in it's sweetness. It makes me happy when I am wearing it.

Notes: Citrus, Passion Fruit, Rum Raisin, Vanilla, Patchouli, and.. CHOCOLATE! I find it wonderful to have the sweet scent of summer  in this arctic blast weather here in Ohio.  I will not let the grey skies, and bitter cold bring my spirits down! For me, all it takes is a smell to trigger my senses to a better time.

Promo Code: Sweetness  , will get you 15% off Eau de Creme on (excludes samples.)

Another thing I find great about Harvey Prince is the way the oils react to my skin.  Today for instance, I sprayed the perfume on my wrists this morning after I showered, and it's been 5 hours and I can still smell the sweetness.  My husband is always telling me how he just wants to eat me up when I am wearing this.

FIVE! Lucky followers will win a 8.8ml Spray of Eau de CREME too. These retail for $26.00 each.  They also fit perfectly in the car, purse, keep one at the gym!  I know some of you have already won Fling, and Flirt from previous reviews! Good luck, and enjoy!

a Rafflecopter giveaway
Giveaway begins 1/22/13 12:01AM, Ends 2/04/13 12:01AM.  Winners have 48 hours to reply to email, if no reply is made, prize if forfeited and another winner will be chosen at random.  Open to U.S, and Canada only.  Prizes retail for $26.00/each.  One winner per house hold (any one in the house hold can enter, no limit.)

All Natural Rodo's Balm Review

All Natural Rodo's Balm Review by Life According To GreenVics,

Lip balm to me should always be natural!  Why in the world would any one put harsh chemicals on themselves? Let alone lips!  I recently reviewed Rodo's Balm., and I have nothing but positive things to say about this new brand.  It's also extremely affordable at just $3.50.  The balm goes on smooth, it did help protect my lips from this arctic blast wind here in Columbus, Ohio. Tonight it is 9 degrees.. with a windchill of -10.. I am plastering lip balm on! 

Vanilla Coffee - This balm was my absolute favorite (Maybe I am just biased because I have a huge love for coffee.)  There is a sweet taste that blends in with the coffee flavor.  This is one of those flavors that it becomes quite addictive reapplying the balm based on enjoying the smell/flavor itself.  The soft lips were just a bonus.

Bubble Gum - It's just one of those retro flavors that does trigger memories of being young, and retrogressing back to a time that I was growing up.  It smells/tastes just like Bazooka Joe gum to me.  My 2 year old kept giving me kisses when I wore this flavor.

Tropical Coconut - With this arctic blast weather, and windchill feeling as if it's -10 this week I enjoyed this flavor.  Tho, at my age, it makes me want pina coladas, haha.  

Natural Unscented Matte - The Natural Matte was my husbands favorite balm.  He isn't into flavored chapstick, but he will wear the unscented balm before going out into this weather as lip protectant.

All of these balms are natural, and cold pressed. The ingredients are easily read, and identified (almond oil, beeswax, etc.) I can't wait for what's next for Patrick Rodo.  The genius behind these natural balms  just graduated High School (yes, that makes him 18), and his passion shines through in the quality of these balms.  I'm hoping for Body Butters, or Oils next!  I received these balms for free, I was not told what to write, or say, opinions are my own!

Go say Hi to Rodo's Balm on Facebook! I just saw a promo on the facebook where a local store had the balms 50% off recently.  Maybe Rodo's balm will do that again some time soon.

{ Giveaway } Go Max Food Candy Bars Review & Giveaway

Go Max Go Foods has some of the best All Natural candy bars I have ever experienced.  Not only are the names fun, but the chocolate, and ingredients were delicious.  I also liked the fact they are a cruelty free company.  Some of the bars are dairy-free & vegan, along with gluten-free.  

The Snap! bar was my favorite.  It's crispy, chocolatey, really I didn't even notice a difference.  I just know I enjoyed the bar.

Then comes Cleos Peanut Butter cups, oh, my, they are perfect.  The peanut butter itself is just smooth, and natural tasting.  I loved that the combination of the chocolate, and the peanut butter didn't overpower each other like another brand does from sweetness.   These I could taste each different layer the way good food should be.

Cleos & Snaps are both Gluten-Free.  You can find out more about the other bars by going here to Go Max Go Food.  There are alternatives to different candy bars, so maybe you can find your favorite, but a better quality of that favorite.  

I received these products for free to review.  I am always on the look out to better alternatives to share with you all.  These really are delicious, and a great treat to indulge in.

Emerson Creek Pottery Go Green Apple Baker Review & Giveaway

Life According To GreenVics Holiday Gift Guide

This is completely non-toxic, 100% Virginia Clay.  These Go Green Apple Bakers by Emerson Creek Pottery are hand made in the Blue Ridge Mountains.  

I absolutely love this apple baker.  It's so easy to use, and works fantastic! Below is a sweet treat my husband made for our Toddler. 

Instead of a bunch of overly sugar treats, we cored an apple, placed it in the middle of the apple baker.

We then added just a pinch of sugar, and some Ground Cinnamon.

And let the apple bake in the Oven, it was done in no time.

Rather my husband make this as a snack for our toddler than any other sweet treat.  Personally, I wanted Vanilla IceCream in the middle of mine after baking but.. Someone ate all my Ice Cream!

A few ideas,  Bake apples with the Go Green Apple Baker, You can even do 3-4 apples and place around the apple baker.  Once the apple has baked with Cinnamon Sugar, Let cool to warm, and add some Vanilla Bean Ice Cream.

Or, You could even bake a bunch of these apples, cut into slices, and use for plain oatmeal, or to just eat alone as a snack.  

Check Emerson Creek Pottery out on Facebook!! You can also enter below to win your own Apple Baker!

Konsyl Original Psyllium Fiber

Get 75% more from your Fiber Supplement with Konsyl Original,
enter for a chance to win Konsyl Orignal PLUS 
& A $75.00 American Express Giftcard!

I don't care who you are,  or how old you are.. things like psyllium fiber are needed.  Even if you think your diet is high in fiber from the foods you eat.. most of the time it is not enough.  The fact that Konsyl is Heart Healthy, and Helps lower cholestrol should be enough to make us.  As humans,  as living organisms want to regulate our bodies to work to their fullest potentials. 

Konsyl has 75% more psyllium fiber than competiters to ensure that users will receive the full benefits of psyllium fiber. It is also Sugar & Gluten free.  100% Natural.

To review Konsyl I was sent the packet powder pysllium fibers, and an easy to use shaker cup.  The packet pouches are perfect for having a few in the car for when you just don't feel good for the day,  maybe you're sluggish, and your body just doesn't feel like itself.  My husband always has a few extra packs in the car also in case he forgets to drink his in the morning.

For each packet, you need 8 oz of water.  You shake for a few seconds, and drink quickly.  It's important to drink quickly so the fiber doesn't thicken too much,  that can be a choking hazard ONLY if you dont use the proper amount of water, shake & drink fast enough.  

If you don't have a shaker cup, just use your water bottle.  Once the water bottle if half way full, thats about 8 oz.  Add to that.  It's really good in flavored water too.

I always feel more like myself when I take fiber.  I'm not as sluggish.  Everyones body is different, but in reality, everyones body needs fiber.

StarLooks September 2012 Monthly Subscription Box Review

StarLooks September 2012 Gift Box

Review by Life According To GreenVics is a $15.00/month Subscription box. This is the 2012 September Box. Included in the box are 6 Full Size products.  There are various signature sets that can be purchased separate if you like what was in your sample box.  The Makeup included in this months box were a 5 palette eye shadow, clear primer, little jewels for your eyes/brows/wherever you want.  And, a Quartz crystal.  

StarLooks ranges from 3+ Full size products that are worth double the price of the box.  I was impressed with the products I received to review.  I also had fun trying the products out on myself.  

Below is a Video I made showing that I received in the box, and how it is mailed.   Starlooks comes Gift Boxed, and really did make me feel like a star.  

The fact that this box came with 5 monochromic eye shadows and a clear primer.  Along with the diamond jewels were a fun touch.  Septembers box was playful to me, and made me want to shine.

There is a Starlooks:Looksbook How-To on ideas to use what's being sent for the month.  Or, you can just create your own.  I just had fun with mine.  The Looksbook has some wicked ideas, and images.  I saw some past boxes that I wish I had known about before.

My Impression of Septembers Monthly box:  Playful! Fun! The diamonds made me feel classy, and like I was a Hollywood pinup.  I think this monthly subscription box is well worth the $15.00/Month.

Usually monthly boxes are just sample sizes, but StarLooks guarantee's full size products in each box.

Wednesday, October 10 Candy Review

by Life According To GreenVics.

How delicious do these Peanut Butter Cups look!?  They'd be great for Halloween!

UnReal Candy 77, Chocolate Peanut Butter

What I've learned about GetUnReal Candy is Unreal = Unjunked.  That means the candy is made with,

  • No Artificial Ingredients
  • No Corn Syrup
  • No  Partially Hydrogenated Oil
  • No GMOs
  • No Preservatives
  • Low Glycemic Index
My favorite are the Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups: Which are only 190 Calories, and 11G of Sugar, which is HALF of what other Peanut Butter Cups are. The chocolates taste, and texture were right on for what I enjoy in my chocolate candy. Smooth, and the way chocolate should taste. The combination of the smooth chocolate, and no artificial ingredients in the peanut butter didn't taste like health food, but just as chocolate & peanut butter should taste together.

Whatever your sweet tooth may be, Unreal has created  lower calories, lower sugar, and natural candy as an alternative to candies we are used to eating.  To me, as long as the candy tastes good, has chocolate that melts in my mouth, and it's something I enjoy as a treat.  Unreal did that for me.  If you're afraid to try it because you think its "too healthy" for you.. Don't think that way.  Think, it hasn't cut out the Sugar, It's just used natural ingredients, and not as much sugar.  I really think people should give it a chance.

The Candy Shelled Chocolates with, and without peanuts were delicious, from the Crunch of the Shell, to the Sweet Chocolate within.  Even The Caramel with, and without peanuts for the Chocolate Caramel Nougets had the perfect ratio of Caramel/Chocolate/Nouget.  

Candy does not have to be made with artificial ingrediants to taste good, and UnReal has proved that to me. It also satisfied my sweet tooth, without making me want to take a bunch of Cinnamon Pills to regulate my sugar intake.  It's a great thing that the Candy has a low glycemic index.  

Is this candy good?  Yes.

Would I give this candy to my family, and friends? I would. These will be perfect for Parties/Holidays/Treats, even For Trick Or Treating.

Is it easy to find this candy in store? Yes!! A lot of  Stores carry UnReal Candy. Up to 30,000+ stores in the United States alone!  I've seen CVS has them buy1get1 free before, and other stores ranging from $.50 to $1.50.

I received this candy for free, for my opinion, honest opinion.  Receiving these 5 candies for free did not sway my opinion, it however was nice to try them!  I've been wanting to try them since I saw the packaging. The packaging has a very unique, distinct logo, that looks like something you'd see on a computer board.  Like a microchip.  That was pretty cool.  It's even embedded into the chocolate.  I'm a sucker for the details.

The Bronx Naturals Soy Candle Bella Review

100% Soy Wax Candle, Natural Fragrance & Cotton Wick

From one avid candle user, and lover of natural oils to another I'd like to introduce you to, Soy Candles.  This Candle is called Bella. 

The experience of ripe peach and earthy sandalwood's really do fill the room. I enjoyed the sweetness of the candle.   I like my candles sweet like I am. The wax is extremely oily, and can be used on the skin once cooled down some.  So that's always a plus. I've been burning my candle almost every other day these past 2 weeks for about 3 hours a day, and it's only half way melted.   I have nothing but positive things to say about this candle.  

Little Info On The Bronx Naturals, The Candles have a burn life of 40 hours. Like I said before, mine is only half way melted.  Soy Wax really does burn longer.  The only thing to keep into consideration is to always make sure the cotton wick is trimmed to 1/8", and to let the candle burn evenly for a few hours before blowing it out.   Like any candle,  it should be respected, and used at caution.  

The Bronx Naturals makes some fantastic, Natural fragrances for their 100% Soy Wax Candles.  

  • Bella: Ripe Peaches & Sandalwood 
  • Fresco: Exotic Floral & Ginger 
  • Temptress: Sandalwood
  • Lemon Energy: Sweet Lemon, Sage, & Orange Blossom 
  • Velvet Rose: Exotic Woodsy Fresh Rose, & Jasmine

Limited Time:  Classic Vanilla, or Classic Lavender.  

I received Bella to sample for my review.  I really am hooked, for just an 11oz candle, the aroma it releases put me into such a great mood.  I give this candle 5 out of 5 stars.  I love to experience products that last more than just one use.

If you want to give a great soy candle a chance.  I would definitely make The Bronx  Naturals a go to for a gift for yourself or some one that loves a great aromatherapy candle.

My motto is.. TRY IT! You might like it!

What I enjoyed about this Trio the most, was the amazing smell of the trio & the results each gave my skin.

The Amazon7 Trio consists of Cleansing gel, Serum, and Moisturizer.  Each full of the Super7 Fruits. That's what gives it that amazing smell.   

Amazon7 Age Combat Cleansing Gel, 16oz. has just the right consistancy, and soap lather.  The Aroma of the Mango stands out the most to me, and made me look forward to washing my face. 

Amazon7  Age Combat Serum, 1oz. I really thought worked fantastic. After washing my face I used the serum, and it felt cool on my warm skin.  I always get hot, and over heated when I get out the shower.  Even if I wash with just warm water, I feel too hot.  The Serum cooled my skin down. 

Amazon7 Age Combat Moisturizer, 1.7oz. After using this my skin seemed to glow.  It also felt, and looked smoother.  The smell again, I just couldn't help but want to apply. 

The Trio reinforces your skin with vitamins and nutrients. What also helps is that it contains Amazon Super Fruits. The Hyaluronic acid helped give my skin that healthy glow without being harsh on it. I was a little worried about drying my skin out, but really the balance it gave my skin is well worth it. I did give this Amazon 7 Trio a longer review because before using it my face had been breaking out.  I am 30 years old, and whenever I break out I feel horrible about myself, and what it's doing to my skin. I really do like the tone of my skin afterwards.

The 7 SuperFruits That make up the Amazon7 Active Ingredients are;

GOJI: Soothes a number of skin conditions, including allergies, rash and psoriasis.

COFFEEBERRY: Superior ability to defend and protect cells against oxidative stress and free radicals, the major cause of skin aging.

NONI: Analgesic, antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.

POMEGRANATE, GREEN TEA & MANGO: Miracle fruits rich in antioxidants, which are helpful in destroying free radicals.

HYALURONIC ACID Holds in moisture, providing cushioning, aiding in tissue repair, holding together the skin structural components collagen and elastin.

Washing My Face With The Amazon7 Combat Cleansing Gel

I give this Trio 5 out of 5 stars!! I love how my skin feels, smells, and looks.  To me, that means so much to have healthy, glowing skin.  Personally, I think skin care is a must.  Anyone can apply makeup to hide things, but I believe it's better to protect, and moisturize the skin.  I feel as if my skin is beautiful, therefor I am beautiful.  I received this Trio for free for my honest, open opinion.

Chobani Greek Yogurt Review & Giveaway

CHOBANI Greek Yogurt Review & Giveaway
CHOBANI Greek Yogurt was delicious.  Recently, I received Mango Low Fat, Blood Orange Non-Fat, Apple Cinnamon Non-Fat, Pineapple Low-Fat, & Champions; Vanilla Chocolate Chunks, Orange Vanilla (For Kids.)  Chonbani is made with natural ingredients.


The Texture of the yogurt is thick, not bitter like some other greek yogurt brands I've tried.  

I enjoyed, and felt as if I was indulging in all the sweet varieties, There are also fruit mixed into the yogurt so it's never boring.  

My Toddler loved the Champions flavors, I even tried both and thought they were delicious.  I will not feed him things that I wouldn't eat myself.  

I received these yogurts to sample for free.  One lucky follower will win a case of Chobani delivered to their front door from CHOBANI.  Just remember that Chobani is greek yogurt.  Greek yogurt is thick, with a texture like sour cream. The way its made, is it's usually heated, and cultured, that's why there is no liquid at the top like many normal yogurts.  Greek yogurt also normally has more protein, and less sugar than other brands.

If you are on mobile, and for some reason can't enter, I can manually add you in for entries for liking Chobani & Life According to GreenVics.
