Orbit Gum BzzCampaign

I enrolled for the New Orbit Gum BzzCampaign and received a few free sample of the gum from Jono at

What you might want to know:

  • Orbit Gum redesigned 36 flavors with retro-forward packs
  • Orbit Gum is sugar-free
  • Orbit Gum is retailed at $1.29 per pack
I received the flavors Peppermint, Spearmint, Wintermint, Sweet Mint and Bubblemint. When I received these samples, I immediately grabbed the Bubblemint and started chewing. My husband went for the Sweet Mint.
The Bubblemint smelled wonderful. My first piece tasted like bubble gum with a hint of mint flavoring. I no longer have the bubblemint pack, so below are pictures of Orbit Bubblemint gum in wrapper and without!
Since my husband decided to chew Orbit's Sweet Mint without telling me, I do not have the Sweet Mint pack. Below are pictures of the pack in the wrapper and without the wrapper.
I have not yet tried the Peppermint, Spearmint or the Wintermint. I did take a picture of the packs with the wrappers and without. (In picture, from top to bottom: Wintermint, Peppermint and Spearmint).

When I opened the packs, Peppermint smelled like traditional peppermint and Spearmint smelled like the traditional spearmint. The one that was different was the Wintermint, which to me, smells like a combination of spearmint and peppermint.

My favorite retro-forward designs would have to be Bubblemint and Spearmint! (Me and Spearmint are shown below).
These Orbit Gum packs are Stylish and Fun. I suggest finding your favorite Retro-Forward Orbit pack and sticking with it. They show the unique and outgoing sides to every personality! (Below is a picture of all of the Retro-Forward packs of Orbit Gum).

Covergirl LashBlast Fusion Mascara

I have Recently enrolled for Covergirl LashBlast Fusion BzzCampaign and received a free sample of Covergirl LashBlast Fusion in Very Black from Jono at

Covergirl Claims:
  • First ever volume + length Mascara
  • Hypo-allergenic and suitable for contact lens wearer
  • Smudgeproof, flakeproof and rubproof
Before applying this Mascara, I took a picture of my left eye.Then curled my lashes with my Covergirl Eyelash Curler.
I noticed the brush looks similar to the original LashBlast and the bristles are just about the same. LashBlast Fusion has bristles that are a little longer in length. I love the bristles that Covergirl uses for the LashBlast collection. I believe the bristles give a better coat to the lashes than other competitive Mascara's.
I started to apply the mascara and realized the bristles were separating and coating each of my lashes without having to fix or move my lashes around. I even put a small amount of mascara on my bottom lashes. I only put on one coat of Mascara and this is what I got with my lashes.The Pigment of the mascara is Very Black and I love that my lashes are now a lot darker than they were in the before picture!
After letting the mascara dry, I noticed that this mascara doesn't weigh down my lashes, like other competitor mascaras have in the past. One of the claims to this Mascara is hypo-allergenic and great for contact lens wearers. I wear contact lenses and have a problem with makeup weighing down my eyes making it hard for me to wear my them after three hours or so. I do not feel discomfort with my contacts while wearing Covergirl's LashBlast Fusion. Which is so great. I can wear mascara now!
And Lastly, I tested out the claims that Covergirl's LashBlast Fusion is smudgeproof, flakeproof and rubproof. It has now been 3 hours since I applied the mascara and do not see flakiness. I rubbed my eyes and mascara didn't rub off. I have been sweating throughout the time and I do not look like a raccoon, so it has not Smudged in any way. This is a picture of the length of my lashes. When I curl my lashes before applying mascara I hope that my lashes will keep a curl. I'm sure that when I put the mascara on, the curl goes away, but I notice such a difference when I do not curl my lashes.

Here is a recap of Covergirl's LashBlast Fusion Mascara on my eyelashes
  • LashBlast Fusion did its part by Volumizing +Lengthening every last eyelash
  • LashBlast Fusion did not irritate my contact lens wearing eyes
  • LashBlast Fusion past the test of not Smudging, Flaking or rubbing off
I will be testing out this mascara for the next couple days, but so far this mascara works wonders for my eyelashes, making them longer and fuller.
