washing-machine

*slush, slush, gurgle, gurgle* what’s that sound?

No silly its not my husband eating! Its me trying out the new Greenworks Clorox laundry detergent in my washing machine!

I am so excited to see how well this laundry soap works! I put it to the test today with my 3 year olds clothes that have halloween candy goodness all over them.

I was selected to try out Greenworks for the word of mouth company called Matchstick. Matchstick is a company I’ve spread the word with before and they are one of the hippest companies out there.

Matchstick with this promo chose a smalll group of bloggers across the country and is also sending out 5000 free purchase coupons for the Green Works Clorox liquid laundry soap. I assume these will be mailed very soon. You have a choice of natural and the orange scented.  Today I’m trying the natural since my little one has excema and I’m really hoping its gentle on his skin. According to the product description its “95%” natural and uses coconut oils as the cleansers. This sounds great!

Click here to visit the Green Works site. They have tons of different cleaners and I see they have a satisfaction guaranteed program as well!

Has anyone else tried this product? What are your thoughts? I’m awaiting feedback from my family and friends as well and will post as the reviews come in!

Regardless of whether you like or hate something, I love how product’s can make you feel nostalgic and in a number of ways that’s how I felt when I received my package from Cake Beauty.

I’ve ordered from Cake Beauty in the past and I’ll admit my impression was a bit mixed and I blame my rather demanding nose, ha! Personally, I crave intense scents and after receiving this order I’ve come to realize how great Cake Beauty really is. My nose knows and it can’t get enough. :D Their selection varies and you really gotta dive in to see what works for you..

.. and what better way to do it than with a 50% off discount.. :D

Getting ahead of myself, back to the review.. ha..

My order this time around included:

Cake Beauty Canada Review + Exclusive 50% Dealcetera DiscountY’know those Valentine cinnamon hearts? If one were to bottle the scent and sell it as a body wash, it’d be called Sweet Cheeks by Cake, lol.  So very reminiscent of that popular holiday candy and bursting with scent which I love. When applied it’s true to its buttery name, very silky against the skin and lathers great. For those curious about their Citrus Squeeze Buttery Body Bubbles, I definitely recommend it as well. As I anxiously awaited for my package, I discovered that The Bay also carried their line and ran off to give the products I ordered a *whiff*, lol. With that said, I had checked two locations and both were very limited in selection and carried none of the items I had ordered so the best shopping route is online. Cake Beauty Canada Review + Exclusive 50% Dealcetera DiscountHowever, I was lucky enough to check out their Citrus Squeeze and it’s just yum and again bursting with scent. :D

The Satin Sugar I’m still in the “trying” phase as it’s ideally meant to pick your hair back up between washings and I haven’t quite given my hair a break, lol. From what I’ve tried, it definitely gives you that lift and fullness the day after. What I love, as someone who colours their hair, is that it softens the roots which is an added bonus - you just gotta be careful to stay away from your part.

To save the best for last - Barbie Cake! :D

Since the moment Barbie turned 50 and Cake revealed their exclusive line of ‘Barbie Cake’, curiousity lingered. I grew up with Barbie and this is where I find myself a bit nostalgic. At 25, two days short of 26, I love how that phase has transcended from combing Barbie’s hair to now spritzing Barbie Cake into my own hair.

Cake Beauty Canada Review + Exclusive 50% Dealcetera DiscountSo how does Barbie smell at 50?  Absolutely heavenly! To quote Barbie Cake’s signature scent, it’s:

a blissful twist of sweet lemon, toasted vanilla, sugar, caramel and fresh cream

Cake Beauty Canada Review + Exclusive 50% Dealcetera DiscountLOVE it! It smells as though I’ve been baking without all the work, lol. The solid perfume compact is ultra cute in its vintage tin and a great size to tote along in a purse or clutch. The spray itself is rather multi-purpose. While online it suggests being great for the body and hair, it omits (as stated on its packaging) how it can also be used for “towels and linens, your gym bag, your car, your office or any room in your very own Dream House”.

The only thing that disappoints me is the “limited edition” nature of this collection so I’m half inclined to stock up during our exclusive 50% off discount!

On July 30th and 31st, we welcome you to indulge when you shop online at CakeBeauty.com using coupon code cakecetera. :D

Further details to follow. Stayed tuned. ;)

Personally, my overall impression of Cake Beauty is a bit mixed.

I had ordered online awhile back, purchasing their “Glacial Chocolate Frosting Supremely Rich bath and shower froth” as well as their ever popular, “Desserted Island Moisturizing Body Glaze.

Absolutely nothing bad to say about their customer service. Transaction was smooth, the status of my order was updated by e-mail in every step, the delivery was super fast and samples were thrown into my order, which was a nice touch.

However, upon opening my parcel, my immediate reaction was, “Wow, they’re small!”

Cake Beauty Canadian Coupon Codes: 40% Off Entire PurchaseThe Glacial bath frosting I had expected to be a lot larger in size, as such I find myself sparingly using it. It was this product that really disappointed me. It doesn’t live up to it’s “surpremely rich” name, perhaps in viscosity, but most definitely not in scent. I’m a huge chocolate fan and this product didn’t satisfy that craving. I also found the bottle way too stiff; you couldn’t squeeze to pour. As such, the ‘convenient’ pop cap I found rather pointless as I have to remove it to get anything out of it.Cake Beauty Canadian Coupon Codes: 40% Off Entire Purchase

The Desserted Island Moisturizing Body Glaze on the other hand, I would actually recommend. A little goes a LONG way and the scent is… yum! When applied, skin is left silky and shiny, however, contrary to their sales pitch, I do find it a bit greasy.

Both items at the time were at 60% less their regular price, discounted by 5% with coupon code and sans shipping for a total cost of $15.03 after taxes which wasn’t too bad, but I’m not sure I’d pay their regular prices - Maybe for the Desserted Island Body Glaze, for the scent alone, lol.

Shipping is $5.99, however if you spend $75 worth then it’s free.

For any Cake Girls, take advantage of the 40% off discount and stock up to counter balance the S&H fee. Also be sure to check out their up to 60% off section. Their “it’s a slice creamy body buffer” is currently on sale at only $12 compared to its regular value of $24. At 40% off, the total cost for that specific product would be $8.14 (taxes in).
