Olfactif - Sample Your Perfume Before You Purchase

Have you ever waned to try perfume before you buy it? Well, there's a subscription box for that. I bring you Olfactif! It's a perfume sample subscription service I had the chance to try out a few weeks ago and I received a monthly box of Olfactif perfume samples. How it works is when you sign up for a subscription, each month you've subscribed you get three sample perfumes to try. They come in little viles and the website says each vile contains about 40 sprays (or a little less, if the full bottle is more expensive). Plus, you even get an $18 credit to put towards a full bottle of perfume featuring one of the scents you tried out. The monthly subscription is about $18.00 month (or you also pay less per month if you subscribe for 3 months, 6 months, or 12 months). Find out more here.

What I immediately like about Olfactif perfume samples I tried was how obviously really quality perfumes these were.

The ones I tried were -

Fils de Dieu by Etat Libre d'Orange (full sized bottle costs $85)

Me Myself & I by Ego Factor (full sized bottle costs $100)

Romantina (full sized bottle costs $90)

You can find out more details about the perfumes I tried by visiting this link.

I really enjoyed all three of these. They were perfect summer perfumes, although a bit heavy for summer I thought. So, I would say these were great for late summer and this lasted me several weeks. Although I was bummed when I realized they were all gone!

I think this Olfactif subscription box is perfect if you want to try out perfumes that are a bit unique and not the usual brand you might see in a department store. The cost of the subscription box - $18.00 per month (and you do receive that back in store credit if you plan to buy a large bottle) is a pretty good price. This is especially nice if you are interested in buying perfumes and have the budget for it. I also think it's worth it, even if you don't buy full bottles but just want a few nice samples of perfume to try. I wouldn't spray these every day but for evenings out or for a day I just want to feel special these worked great.

To purchase your subscription, visit Olfactif's website and subscribe.You can also like them on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, and Instagram.

I received the above subscription box in exchange for my honest review.


  1. I like that you receive the $18 back in store credit if you buy a bottle. I think I still greatly prefer just going to Nordstrom or Sephora and smelling ALL THE THINGS, I do like that they're unique and unusual brands though.

  2. I like the fact that you can try them as samples before you buy them.

  3. This is a neat idea! I like that you can try them out to see if you like them before you commit to buying them.

  4. Cool advice!! I saw on another blog something similar, except it said "Date your perfume before you marry it".

  5. This is a convenient service that a lot of people would use

  6. This is a great idea!

Vitamin C Serum - Add This To Your Morning Beauty Routine [Review and Giveaway]

What is your morning (or evening) beauty routine? For me, I'm usually so tired at night that if I remember to wash my face, it's an enormous deal. But in the morning, I pay so much more attention to my skin. I always put on coconut oil of some kind, but lately, I've been adding a new addition to my routine - Vitamin C Serum.

I've heard about the benefits of using a Vitamin C Serum for a while now and jumped at the chance to try it out and see the kind of impact this had on my skin.

I have been using the Amara Organics Vitamins C Serum 20% (with Vitamin E and Hydraulic Acid) Serum for a couple of weeks now. One thing that stood out to me was how gentle this was on my skin. It wasn't harsh at all. I use it daily each morning and follow it up with  a moisturizer.

Vitamin C Serum is supposed to reduce signs of aging. I'm only 28 so I'm not sure that I have a lot of evidence of aging to worry about just yet. This is also supposed to brighten skin, repair damage…

Lotus Foods Rice Review and Giveaway


I tend to eat quite a bit of rice in my diet. First, because it's a healthy grain. Plus, I'm also gluten-free and it's a good grain for me to have that won't negatively impact my body.
So I usually purchase one particular type of rice brand, so I was really eager for the chance to try out a new kind. I tried out rice by Lotus Foods. You may have seen them in the store or heard of them before! 
What makes Lotus Foods different? Well they work towards improving the lives of the farmers they work with first of all. They use what is called a "System of Rice Intensification." It's a way of allowing farms to "double and triple their yields while using 80-90% less seed, 50% less water, less or no chemical inputs." Basically, more rice, less water. So I tend to be a visual learner, so if you want to know more about what this means, watch this really short video below:

They also partner with small scale farmers, which I think is amazing and I really …

Crazy Richards Peanut Butter Review & Giveaway

I absolutely love peanut butter. Really, I mean peanut butter is such a huge part of my diet. And you know, I really appreciate when peanut butter has simple ingredients. Peanuts. Salt. And that's it. I don't like added oils and I'm not TOO big of a fan of flavored peanut butters. Although I'd never turn down chocolate peanut butter (if I found the right blend!).
Anyways, I had the chance to try out some peanut butter by a company called, "Crazy Richards." Crazy Richard's Peanut Butter has been around a while. It was formed and combined by two Richards about 30 years ago and was recently passed along to the newest generation.
Well, I got the chance to try out their peanut butter - creamy and crunchy. I loved it. Here's a weird thing I love with peanut butter - whole milk vanilla Greek yogurt with blueberries! Sure people put peanut butter in smoothies, but I scoop out some of my favorite vanilla greek yogurt into a cup and put it in the freezer with …
