Review: Aloe Vera Drink Sugar Free (Diet Drink)

Today I went to the Korean market with my hubby. They had aloe vera drinks on sale.  I haven't tried these before, so I thought I would give it a go. They had different flavors, but I decided to get the original one made by Assi Brand. I love this logo, it's sooo cute! 

 Aloe vera has been used medicinally for centuries, as a topical remedy to heal burns, rashes, wounds, and other skin conditions, due to its natural anti-inflammatory, anti-septic,  healing properties.

Aloe Vera can also be ingested as it has many health benefits, such as aiding our digestion and improving our circulation by detoxifying and healing our bodies so we can efficiently absorb nutrients.

Moving on to the review, this bottle contains 16.9 fl oz. It is sugar free, and uses sucralose (splenda) as a sweetener.

It has 0 calories, and 0 fat! You can look at the nutrition fact below.

At first I thought this was going to be a very thick consistency, but surprisingly it wasn't at all. It has little bits of aloe vera in it, which I really like. The bits are soft yet has a little crunch to them. It smells like lychee. If you never smelled or tasted lychee before it is a delicately mild, sweet, juicy, round fruit originated in Asia, that smells of grapes.(Click here to see how they look like.)

I  would definitely repurchase it again, it is an absolute plus that it's guilt free, yeah!

If anyone has any favorite flavors or brands that you really like,  please comment with suggestions, I would really like to try more of these.  :O)

Review: China Glaze V

Yes, it's another polish review. ehehhe I really like China Glaze polishes, for me they are really easy to work with.  This is my new favorite color for the moment, it is called, "V". It is a beautiful, peachy coral color.

I painted my nails 3 days ago and it is still going strong without any chips, and I am really rough with my nails. I wash my hands constantly and I also scrub my nails too.

On my nails are my favorite base coat by China Glaze, 2 coats of China Glaze "V" and Seche Vite Fast Top Coat.

Review: Sinful Color Nail Polish - "See you Soon"

This is shot with indoor lighting

This has a great consistency not too thin or goopy. The polish glides on nicely. The color I got is really pretty for the fall/winter. It is black with fine blue micro glitter. Ii is a little twist to the typical black polish.  It also doesn't smell that bad like other polishes. It lasts pretty long before it chips. For me about 4 days with minimal chips on the tip of my nails.

This is shot with natural lighting, you can see the glitter in the polish.

I have on a base coat by China Glaze, 2 coats of See you Soon Polish and my favorite , Seche Vite Fast Top Coat.

I love this polish and would definitely purchase this again, it is an excellent product for the price.  I Bought at Walgreens for $1.99

Review: Sally Hansen Hard as Nail Xtreme Wear, Gunmetal

I love this nail color (Gunmetal #22) and polish by Sally Hansen. This is a great metallic dark grey color for the fall. This has a medium consistency that is easy to work with. It thickens quickly for me (that's because I am slow at painting my nails) so I try to work quickly. This also great because it dries faster. I put China Glaze as a base coat and finish it off with Seche Vite Fast Top Coat.

This polish last for about 5 days before there was huge and noticeable polish chips.
