Kroger Simple Truth Vegan Pizza Crust

I was super excited to get this kit from MyMagazine Sharing network. We love pizza, so this was a super easy product test for us! Our kit included a free pack of 2 vegan pizza crusts, an oven mitt, a pizza cutter and coupons for various toppings.

For our first pizza night, we made a pepperoni pizza and a chicken,  artichoke,  and spinach pizza.

I baked the pepperoni pizza on a cookie sheet and the other directly on the oven rack  The pepperoni pizza crust ended up much softer, while the other turned out very crispy. Both were hits! But my preference was definitely the chicken,  artichoke and spinach.

Since then, we have purchases these crusts two more times. They are soooo good! It's definitely our new favorite! 

While we were given free samples and discounts on products mentioned above, the opinions are our own.

Dove Dry Shampoo Review

As a member of the MyMagazine Sharing Network, I periodically receive free or reduced cost items to check out and tell you about. Recently, I received a fall beauty kit containing the following items: 

  • ONE (1) Sample Pack of Dove Dry Shampoo
  • ONE (1) Sample Pack of Garnier® SkinActive® Soothing Facial Mist with Rose Water
  • ONE (1) Maybelline® Eyestudio® Master Precise All Day Liquid Mini Eyeliner
  • ONE (1) Sample Pack of Love Beauty and Planet™ Shampoo and Conditioner

The first item I tried is the dry shampoo. The following are my opinions on the product. 

As happens, I found myself running late one day and had skipped my shower the night before because, well, I like sleep :) At work, I remembered I had stashed the sample can of Dove Dry Shampoo in my bag so I figured I'd give it a try. I'm a big fan of dry shampoo - totally saves the day when I have a surprise meeting or if I've been dealing with sick baby, pumping, cleaning house, etc. I hadn't tried the Dove brand before though. 

My hair was clearly a bit greasy - perfect to test it out

After a quick spray, massage and brush, here's the result: 

My thoughts? 

I really liked the smell. The coconut lime was a nice change from other dry shampoos. 

It didn't leave any white residue behind, which has happened with other brands

I don't feel like it really absorbed all the oil. It was ok, but had my hair been any oilier, it would not have done the job. 

Overall, I'll finish out this sample can, but I'm not sure I'd purchase it. There are other brands that do a better job and in all honestly, corn starch is my preferred "dry shampoo".
