Graze Box Unboxing and Review

Graze Box

I was so excited to get my Graze Box in the mail! Like you’ll see in my unboxing video, sometimes running out the door and remembering snacks, sippy cups and toys to keep my kids occupied while we’re out in public can get difficult. My mind is all over the place with getting everything I need for them, I usually forget the snacks.

After seeing Graze Box, I knew this was going to solve the issue. My girls won’t have to eat stale snacks in a baggie from weeks ago at the bottom of the diaper bag anymore! They can have a different snack every time and it will stay fresh!

I loved the look of this box. Not only was it pretty, but it’s biodegradable, 100% recyclable and made with wood from a sustainable forest! All pluses in my book!

In a full-size box, you get 8 snacks. These are the ones I received!

I know I mentioned it in my video, but I LOVE BANANA! So, I was so excited about the banana shortbread with caramel sauce.

It was so good!

My daughter was right over my shoulder when I started going through the box to try things. She couldn’t wait to get something. She tried the “Stars and Stripes”.

After she took one bite, she grabbed a blanket, curled up on the couch and these were gone in no time! I think it was safe to assume this was going to be a winner.

My husband tried the “Soy Roasted Seeds”. He was pretty impressed. The packaging is great, tasted good and how convenient they are going to be to have, you can’t go wrong!

The ingredients are great quality and for $14, it’s well worth it!

They have a great deal going on right now. You can get your 1st and 5th box FREE, just by using the promo code LIZM1D4DB at Graze.com

Miessence Product Reviews

I have another great review for you! I like it because, 1. I never heard of this brand and 2. I am supporting another beautiful lady in a natural organic momma group I am in. Looking further into the ingredients had me intrigued for sure. This brand is Miessence, and the beautiful lady I am talking about is Marie Beermann from Australia! I have to say first off, this blog has brought me to many parts of the world I would have never expected to reach and I am so excited that it has happened. If not, I doubt I would of heard of Miessence! They have all certified organic skincare, haircare, cosmetics, superfoods, homecare and other products. With Marie’s help I was able to check out the skincare and haircare line and I have nothing negative to say.

FOR WARNING the following content will contain photos of my face without makeup! Haha.. To any woman reading this, I’m sure can relate. As I was taking photos of my skin, I did with caution. Trying to find the appropriate light. However, I have to say it wasn’t that bad. These products were really conditioning and it made me feel confident. I didn’t have the horrible dry spots as I do usually. So, of course, I took pictures to share with you all.. Proceed with caution…..even though.. I felt pretty good!

So, after working most the day in the salon, my makeup had worn off some and with the heat outside my face melted somewhat. I was more than excited to wash my face and start over.

 The Cleanser was great! Took my makeup off super easy. I didn’t feel like I needed to really scrub. I like that. My eyeliner is prone to raccoon eyes. This wasn’t the case. Washed off easily! See…

Next, was the skin conditioner…..

The skin conditioner was more of a skin serum. It was sooo smooth! The one thing I loved compared to other skin serums was that I didn’t feel like I was suffocating! It was light weight and moisturizing!

The Moisturizer was probably my favorite!

20160820_201511

It was smooth and smelled ok. As I put it on, it made me think of tea and butter, which was kind of odd, but it faded. Overall, It made my skin feel wonderful! It wasn’t heavy and didn’t have a greasy feeling like other moisturizers I have tried. I would of felt confident to stop right here, go about my day, feeling like my skin felt beautiful!

Next, I tried the foundations. Now I am a little picky when it comes to foundation. They can get clumpy, gritty and can dry out your skin. They make your skin look dry and flaky, so usually I just opt to not using any. However. Miessence didn’t disappoint! I tried 3 different kinds… Honey, Vanilla and Porcelain!

I was pretty surprised when I used all 3 of these colors on different sections of my face. When they say translucent, they actually mean it. All 3 gave me a different glow when I rubbed them in. The honey gave me a warm glow. I liked it! It was a nice sun kissed color to my cheek. The vanilla I would use probably on a daily basis. It matched my skin and it didn’t look like I was wearing makeup at all. The Porcelain,  would work well under my eyes as they can get darker just a tad and this would be a good way to cancel that out! When they were rubbed in, it felt more like a lotion than a foundation.

Can you tell I used 3 different types of foundation? I think that’s what I like most. They have their slight differences but yet cover my imperfections!

Eeeekk.. now forget you saw any of those images and just remember what I said…  Miessence is a win!!

I also had the pleasure to try some of their other products! Like the Shampoo and Conditioner….

Now with being a hairstylist and trying every single shampoo and conditioner under the sun. I can be pretty bias, but this was pretty good! The shampoo, I only had to use once. I usually only wash my hair once every 5 days or so, which in turn I need to wash my hair twice to get it really clean. This shampoo, one time did the trick!

20160820_202353The conditioner, left my hair soft and pliable. It wasn’t heavy and was easy to get through my hair. My hair has a tendency to tangle easily… Not the case here… For a natural conditioner, this worked well for me!

The last 3 products I used from Miessence were the Body Wash, Shave Gel and After Shave Balm. With body washes, I’m not to picky. As long as it smells decent (but not over powering with artificial fragrance) and cleans well, I don’t care. This body wash was good though. The smell was light, it lathered well and didn’t leave a soapy residue on my skin!

The Shave Gel and Balm worked well together. I shaved my legs with the gel. I have super sensitive skin. so shaving my legs always leaves me with bumps and the feeling of a rug burn. The shave gel worked well with my razor. It was smooth going on and let my razor get close. I felt like it moisturized as I used it and left no stubble.. YAY! The balm prevented any razor bumps. I was happy. I didn’t feel like I had burnt bumpy legs, probably because it has aloe vera! Plus, it was smooth! Happy lady right here!

Overall, I’d say Miessence is a winner. All the products I tried didn’t disappoint! They over exceeded my expectations and I am happy to recommend the brand to others! The ingredients list is easy to read on all the products and I knew what all of them were. The quality is great and price is probably more on the higher side for many, but more than reasonable for the quality you receive!

I hope you all give Miessence a chance!  Check out Miessence HERE or email Marie at mariebeermann22@gmail.com  with any questions you may have!
