I finally took time to sample all the goodies I received and proud to report on my top three indulgences.

The Skinees Skincarewear was by far one of my favorite treasures from the showcase. Imagine an easy sea-wrap treatment that’s ‘on the go’ and easy to use right from home, work, gym, anywhere. I received the spandex shorts and the multivitamin mist and saw results within the first week of using it. I’m not even kidding. This is no infomercial special, nor am I getting paid to tell you this. I was blown away to see my skin smoother and feeling softer.

I’m a workaholic, so discovering the ZzzQuil was a dream come true… literally. I can finally wake up and remember my dreams. I have a bad habit of drinking coffee in the late afternoon, which keeps me wired until late night, not allowing me to fall asleep. Thanks to this weapon, I put myself to a calm state in bed, right before falling into a deep slumber, and still wake up naturally at 7 a.m. without any drowsiness. It’s great!

If you know me, you know that I tend to be jumpy all day off of caffeine and adrenaline to get work done. Discovering Neuro – a delicious enhanced beverage – is now my go to regime over Red Bull. This stuff is seriously delicious, light, refreshing and makes me feel productive! Their tagline says so as well, “Drink with a purpose”. Ain’t nobody got time for drinking high caffeine beverages throughout the work day and suffering from a major sugar/caffeine crash at the end of the day. Happy to report that now you can drink your delish vitamins in one bottle and add a healthy, purposeful kick to you day!
