Beer review – Breckinridge Brewery Orange Cream Ale

From Breckinridge Brewery’s website:

5.5% ABU, 15 IBU

This beer came with instructions, you guys! I had to pour it and let it sit for 3-5 minutes. It had a nice golden color. It went down very smooth, which I liked. It wasn’t a strong beer at all, so no buzz. Boo. The only thing disappointing is that I didn’t get an orange cream taste. I like Nitros, but usually prefer them as stouts instead of ales. I give this beer a 3 out of 5. 


Products I Love – Purity Face Wash & EcoTools Konjac Sponge

I love the Purity face wash by Philosophy. It cleans my face without drying it out. The 3 oz. size was $11, and the 8 oz bottle was $24, but well worth it because you get so much. The fact there is no real fragrance is great because it doesn’t irritate my skin. 

Another product I love is Eco Tools Konjac sponge. I use the deep cleansing one, but I’ve also used the sensitive skin one. I prefer the deep cleansing sponge because I feel like it does a better job and is more durable. These sponges last about 3 months before they sort of wither. They run about $5, but at Walmart they’re a little cheaper. 

Natural Toothpaste Review

My favorite natural toothpaste is Tom’s of Maine. More than Sensodyne, Tom’s helped the sensitivity in my teeth. One day, I decided to try something new and get Hello. It was a different flavor, cinnamon, and it was maybe 40 cents cheaper. It was disappointing – none of the sensitive in my teeth went away, in fact, it felt like it almost got slightly worse. After I suffered a cold/allergies recently, I threw that tube away and bought Kiss My Face‘s sensitivity toothpaste. It’s orange mint and is a gel. I like it so far. I haven’t used it for long, but I feel some sensitivity abating. Both of these products cost about $4.50 at Walmart.
