CoverGirl Lashblast Volume Mascara Review

As part of a BzzAgent campaign, I was selected to test the CoverGirl Lashblast Volume Mascara

I have three things not going for me: sensitive dry eyes, thin eyelashes, and not many of them. I've tried a lot of mascaras hoping to find something that can deal with my eye and eyelash issues.

The "Very Black" is really dark. It doesn't irritate my eyes, it's buildable, it almost never clumps, it doesn't flake or leave anything under my eyes after wearing it all day, and it comes off with just water. Even though it's mainly for volume, I get nice lash length out of it too. The bonus to this awesome find is that it's readily available at the drugstore. I absolutely love this mascara.

I Really Detest Drinking Plain Water

I know I should be drinking more water.

The "rule of thumb" is you should be drinking half your body weight in ounces of water, however, my problem is I really detest drinking plain water.  I really don't drink water unless it's in tea, hot chocolate or have a terrible hangover.

I know if I don't drink water I will die - I've heard drinking water will make my skin glow - I've heard drinking water will prevent headaches - I've heard drinking water will do a lot of things ...

... unfortunately I hate drinking plain water

A friend who knows me, recently suggested I try Javita which has a new product line called ActiveBlendz which consists of four products infused with natural fruit flavors and herbs designed to transform your daily glass of water into something more.

OK, I'm intrigued ...

The ActiveBlendz line consists of four natural fruit-infused drink mixes, each having its own refreshing and flavorful taste while targeting a specific function. Light, refreshing and flavorful, ActiveBlendz can help control your appetite, defend your overall health, enjoy the rush of natural, sustained energy and flex your joints.*

OK, I'm even more intrigued ...

This is what the Javita website has to say about the different "blends" ...

Now, I've tried other similar products with not much success, but decided to give these a shot.  I'm starting off with the ActiveBlendz Control and ActiveBlendz Defend, and I'm hoping they at least help me get my requisite ounces of water per day.  Anything else is gravy
