Seriously Strong Spreadable Squares...



My BzzAgent pack for the new Seriously Strong Spreadable Squares has just arrived!

Inside is the usual BzzAgent intro card along with a promotional flyer with serving suggestions, 1 coupon for a free pack and 3 x 75p off vouchers.

The claim is an 'ultimate cheddar taste just spreadable' so I can't wait to try it out.

There's 8 foil-wrapped squares in each pack and there's two varieties available; original cheddar and lighter (30% less fat).

Just bought my pack...



Review: 

I was pleasantly surprised at how easy it was to unwrap the little squares, and very impressed that none of the product stuck to the foil, not even a little bit. As with other similar products, the spread felt quite firm to the touch but was easily spreadable on even the most fragile of cream crackers. A little goes quite a long way, further than you think actually. If, like me, you don't like too much spread on your crackers you can cover 6 standard sized crackers with just one square, which is impressive.




Here's what I achieved with just one square:
  • Cheese and pesto
  • Plain cheese
  • Cheese and salad leaves
  • Cheese and cucumber
  • Cheese and tomato
  • Cheese and onion


I'd bought the 'lighter' version which was a very mild cheesy taste (I assume the original version is cheesier). Was expecting a stronger taste, especially given it's from the Seriously Strong range, but you could just about taste it.


I was 'dared' to eat a square with a piece of 70% chocolate. Quite why I agreed to this I'm not entirely sure, but I gave it a go. While it wasn't quite as stomach-churning as I anticipated, I won't be repeating it! Maybe it's just an acquired taste.

Vaseline Vaseline Radiance Restore Healing Serum (200ml)



I was asked to review this tube of Vaseline Vaseline Radiance Restore Healing Serum (200ml) by BzzAgent, and here are my observations:

The Vaseline brand is extremely well respected so I knew the product wouldn't be of an inferior quality. I often use cocoa butter on my skin, so I was looking forward to testing this serum out on my skin as there was cocoa butter in it.

The serum (cream) is white with a pleasant scent but nothing I can specifically put my finger on, which is actually quite strong (some people may find it too strong but I was ok with it). I think I expected to smell the cocoa butter, but I couldn't. It sank into my skin almost instantly and didn't leave any kind of residue despite it having 'micro droplets of vaseline jelly'. A little goes a long way so it's actually very good value for money.

I used the serum on my hands and feet on a daily basis for just over a week and can already see and feel the positive results. My hands feel much softer and actually look younger, and my feet are silky smooth.

I also used it after getting sunburn on my arms, and it really seemed to help with the soothing and healing process. I certainly didn't peel as much as I usually do afterwards. I then decided to give it a go on my stretch marks and cellulite, and after just a few days there were a subtle improvement with both. It seemed to improve the elasticity of my skin as well as improving the overall look of it. I have no idea how they measure their claim that it has 10 times healing power, but it did seem to heal my skin.

The only negative thing I have to say is that information and instructions on the back of the tube were almost impossible to read, however the white writing on the front was very readable.
