Beauty: Dove Ultimate Visibly Smooth

A few weeks ago, I was sent a Dove Ultimate Visibly Smooth deodorant kit. Not wanting to write about something I haven’t tried, I decided to postpone this post until I’ve had the chance to try it and see for myself whether this deodorant delivers on its promise. What promise?

Well, Dove Ultimate Visibly Smooth anti-perspirant promises to “minimize the visual appearance of hair over time”, while providing 24-hour wetness protection. “For under arm hair that feels softer, finer and easier to remove”.

First of all, I could feel the deodorant’s moisturizing effects upon the very first application. It glided on smoothly (as promised), and didn’t leave any residue behind. The scent was fresh and very subtle. Over time, I definitely felt my skin and hair become softer…but I am not done yet. I am still using Dove Visibly Smooth, as most benefits can be seen/felt after about four weeks of use. But what I’ve felt so far – I absolutely love.

As I’ve been given one extra anti-perspirant to share with a friend, I’ve decided to give it to one of my readers. If you’d like to try Dove Ultimate Visibly Smooth, leave a comment below, or tweet at me, and I’ll pick a winner by the end of next week. Good luck!

Motorola FLIPOUT Phone Giveaway

So after all the teasing and hinting, the day is finally here! A couple of weeks ago, the kind folks over at Motorola Canada sent me a really nice package: 2 Motorola FLIPOUT phones and some other goodies. Since then, I’ve been playing and flipping and socializing, all via the teeny-tiny FLIPOUT, with all of my contacts, Facebook, Gmail, Twitter, and other social media outlets literally one finger touch away, I’m loving it!

As I mentioned, the phone is very small (perfect for clutches, and small purses), with a touchscreen display, allowing easy access to all the menus. Once you flip the phone open, a full QWERTY keyboard is revealed, making typing emails a breeze. There’s a 3MB built-in camera, camcorder, and many other cool features. But the one that definitely stands out is – Happenings. Happenings integrates all of your social media into one constant stream of information (which you can edit as you please) via MOTOBLUR. This little tool helps me keep on top of all of my tweets and Facebook messages, displayed on the front screen of the phone, and I love it!

Motorola FLIPOUT is an Android phone, so access to various Google apps is also very, very easy. And for someone that can’t check her Gmail from work, this is really useful. And just like with an iPhone, there are numerous apps available via the Android Market – some very useful (PayPal) and some not so much (Frozen Bubble).

The look of the phone is definitely one of the cooler features about it. People continuously comment on the FLIPOUT, and usually think that it’s “super cute”. And it is super cute and a lot of fun to use (it’s an addiction!).

So if you’ve been paying enough attention, you must’ve noticed that Motorola Canada sent me TWO phones. One for me, and one for a lucky reader! So if you like what you see, make sure to read the contest rules very carefully below.
