Product Review- COVERGIRL

A break from my usual postings...

So I recently joined a website (BzzAgent) that is pretty cool.  They send me products to review, along with coupons to hand out to anyone who wants to try it out.  So here we go!

My first product to try out is foundation and gloss balm from CoverGirl.  It's from their new line, NatureLuxe.  They claim that it's silky smooth and moisturizing and all that.  I agree.  The foundation felt really silky and made my skin feel great.  It's a really light coverage foundation though, so I found that my skin didn't look quite as smooth as it felt with that makeup unless I used a lot of the foundation.  And halfway through the day, the silky feeling was gone, though my face stayed moisturized.  So if you like touching up your makeup during the day, great.  If not, you can just use a lot of it and you'll be fine.

The gloss balm is even better.  My lips are kind of big so I don't like putting too much color on my lips, as rich color just makes them look bigger.  But this stuff (at least the color I got) has just a touch of pink that made my lips looks great.  It's basically a combination lip gloss and lip balm (as the name suggests) and it's in a little tube like lipstick.  As with any balm or gloss, you have to reapply if you want the color to stay, but it's worth it.

I have coupons if anyone local wants one so you can try it yourself (I recommend it!) so let me know if you want one.

(I was given the products for free through BzzAgent.  But all opinions are my own and totally honest.)

He did it!  He graduated!  I'm so excited for Aaron, the college graduate!  I took a lot of pictures, but I really need to edit a lot of them since the lighting was really weird, so I'll just give you a few to look at:

Ok, so that was more than just a few, but I think this guy is pretty cute and I'm really proud of him.  Congratulations Aaron!

My sweet hubby turns 26 today!  What a great guy!

Happy Birthday!

Bike Ride

Aaron and I each have a bike.  I used to ride mine to campus, and Aaron still does, but that's about the extent of our bike riding ever since we bought our car.  There's one big hill between us and BYU but it's really a pretty short ride.

We had really great weather this weekend so we decided to take a bike ride.  There's a nice paved bike/pedestrian trail that goes from Provo up to Vivian Park in Provo Canyon (actually it starts before Provo, but we've never gone on that part).  So we oiled our starting-to-rust chains, packed a picnic lunch, and started biking to Bridal Veil Falls.  The trail was nice and there were a bunch of people out running or biking, but the path wasn't too crowded.  We had to stop just a couple times so I could catch my breath after a hill but we made it to the falls after biking for about an hour and 45 minutes.

We stopped to eat lunch, took a couple of pictures to prove we did it, and headed back.

It was almost entirely down hill coming home, which was great.  We made it back in less than an hour.

Honestly, I'm pretty proud of myself.  I knew it would be hard, especially considering I hadn't touched my bike since the fall, but I did it!  And it was about 9.2 miles each way, so we rode about 18.5 miles!  Pretty dang good compared to our normal 0-2 mile rides to campus.

We discovered that our bike seats are not very good for long rides.  My rear end is still hurting a little- ouch.

And we both have pink arms and cheeks.  It's been so long since we've had sunny days that we didn't even stop to think about sunscreen.  My pink is almost gone, but Aaron (especially his arms) is still looking a bit like a lobster.

Ah, sun, how I have missed you!

Unfortunately, it's supposed to rain a lot in the next few days, which is lame since it's graduation week for Aaron.  But he only had a couple finals left and his parents get here on Thursday.  Yay!

And Aaron's birthday is tomorrow!  Exciting!

And happy Palm Sunday!
