Product Review – Neutrogena Naturals

ThisOne.png.342x341_q85_cropOccasionally I get to try out products through a company called Influenster. It’s really great because I get to try products that I normally wouldn’t purchase, and often times I’m super excited about them and end up buying them again.

With  Influenster, you usually take a short quiz answering a few things here or there to see if the product is a good fit for you. This time I was able to give the Neutrogena Naturals Make Up Removing Cloths a try. I used make up removing cloths YEARS ago, but since then I typically use coconut oil to remove my mascara and eyeliner, then a facial cleanser to get rid of everything else, followed by astringent and lotion. Saving time on my nightly routine would be nice, so the cloths were definitely a nice change of pace. It was really nice not having to use water to rinse my face off. I was able to wipe my face clean, then I followed it with my regular astringent like I would with my normal routine. It really did help remove my makeup and it was also able to remove my double coating of mascara I sometimes wear. I typically don’t wear makeup regularly, unless I’m out and about, but I did really like not having to wash my face. There were a few times we got home late, but removing my makeup took no time at all. I definitely liked this product and would buy it again at the right price.

One thing that was pretty cool about this product, was that it was focused on a #WipeForWater movement. This Earth Month (well April), Neutrogena® Naturals is partnering with The Nature Conservancy to save water. Get involved and join #WipeForWater. Pledge to clean your face without using water, and instead exclusively clean with Neutrogena® Naturals Purifying Makeup Removing Cleansing Wipes. For each pledge, Neutrogena® Naturals will contribute $1 to The Nature Conservancy to support water conservation, up to $50,000.

San-J Review & Pork Stir Fry Recipe!

photoI recently received 2 different sauces from San-J to review. They sat on my desk for a few days while I tried to figure out exactly what to make with them. We ended up making a stir fry which was a hit! Here is the recipe:

Pork Stir Fry

1lb pork tenderloin (cut into 1 inch pieces)
1 head of broccoli (cut into small florets)
6 carrots (peeled & cut into 1 inch pieces)
1 bottle of San-J Mongolian Stir-Fry & Marinade Sauce
Brown Rice

As you can see this was a very simple and easy meal! Start by cooking rice according to package directions. In a frying pan, add 1/4 c. of San-J Mongolian Stir-Fry & Marinade Sauce. Heat over medium heat then add pork. Cook until pork is no longer pink inside. While the pork is cooking, steam broccoli & carrots together. Once pork is done, add broccoli and carrots to the mix. Pour remaining San-J Mongolian Stir-Fry & Marinade Sauce to frying pan, and cook until warm. Serve over rice and viola…. you’ve got a meal the whole family will love! 🙂 You can also use the San-J Tamari Lite Soy Sauce as well if you feel it’s needed.

Both sauces had a great flavor and one thing that I really liked about these products is that they are gluten free, kosher, and Non-GMO! The Tamari Lite Soy Sauce is also vegan. I was very impressed by both of these products, and plan on using them again in the future. Now I want to try some of their other sauces & salad dressings!
