I am really not a tea person, so it was no surprise that this tea was not for me. I am sure others loved it, but I was just not a fan. It had a lovely holiday smell, but the flavor was not my "cup of tea".
*Edit- I just found this recipe and wish I had seen it before I just tried the tea on its own! It sounds delicious, and I bet it would have complimented the tea's flavor well.
- 2 Tbsp. cocoa powder
- ½ oz. dark chocolate
- 2 Tbsp. honey
- 2 bags Celestial Seasonings Candy Cane Lane Holiday Green Tea
- 2 Tbsp. peppermint schnapps (optional)
- Whipped cream
- Candy canes
The Fruit Vines Red Vines bites were a perfectly sized little snack. I prefer really soft licorice, like red vines, or pull & peels. These were a little too tough for me, but they had a great taste!
McCormick Gourmet Thyme
The McCormick Thyme had a great flavor. It was nice and bold, and really gave my Pork Tenderloin a great flavor. I have never had a bad experience with McCormick brand, and I have a whole stock of their products in my cupboard.
NYC New York Color
Typically I am not a lipstick person, its just too bold for my taste. However, the Plum NYC New York color was perfect. Not too bold, not too flashy, just dark enough to line my lips and give them a slight pop. Not only was the shade perfect, but it also glides on very smoothly, and doesn't stain your teeth. I was very impressed with NYC New York Plum Lip color, and would definitely purchase it in the future!
Boots NO7 Protect & Perfect Serum
I really loved how smooth the serum went onto my skin. It is a very silky smooth consistency, which makes my skin feel the same way. The sample that I received was very small, and only had enough to last me about a week. This serum claims it shows results after 2 weeks, so I really can't say if it actually does what it claims. However, I absolutely hated how it smelled! It smelled exactly how I imagine liquid plastic would smell, not a burnt smell, just very plastic-y. Based on the smell alone I would not purchase this serum.Also, I feel like I'm not in need of anti-aging cream just yet.
EcoTools Hair Brush
The eco tools hairbrush I received is not my favorite type of brush. The bristles on it make my hair very staticy. I would really love to try a different brush from EcoTools, because mine does feel like a quality product that will last a long time. This one just isnt for me. I would definitely try other products by EcoTools in the future, and will be looking to purchase a new brush from them in the future.
