Review of Lemon Scented Vim Cream

I posted my review on Vim Cream at, but wanted to share my thoughts and pictures with you. Enjoy!

Thank you for sending me a full size bottle of lemon scented Vim Cream to try. My family and I really appreciate the opportunity to review the product.

Unlike other cleaners that overpower one's senses, the light yellow Vim Cream smells natural. The shape of the bottle is well designed. It is easy to hold on and squeeze the powerful formula easily onto surfaces. The cream is phosphate free, has the consistency of lotion, and stays in place. The gentle but gritty texture is quite unique for a cleaner. The formula is somewhat like Crest Pro-Health tooth paste.

The product cannot be used on certain surfaces, which include linoleum, textile, leather, and painted wood. And extra caution must be used when applying the cream to painted enamel, aluminium, and other soft surfaces.

I used the product on my bathtub, kitchen sink, and white runners. I'm pretty satisfied with the results. The cream was able to remove soap scum, and everyday grime without scratching my belongings. I'm slightly disappointed the product was not able to remove hard water build up from the shower head. Overall, the cream required less scrubbing and elbow grease, and the cleaner saved me time. Thanks to the makers of Vim Cream; the awesome formula has certainly rejuvenated my place.

I still love my current eco-friendly green cleaners because I'm a tree-hugger. I would only buy the Vim Cream to clean my white runners and would suggest the it to my work out buddies.

Review Breyers Smooth and Dreamy Ice Cream: Strawberry & Cream

I posted my review on Breyers Smooth and Dreamy Ice Cream at, but wanted to share my thoughts and pictures with you. Enjoy!

Thank you (i.e. the review club) and for sending me a beautiful green ice cream scoop and a free product coupon (FPC) for a 1.89L tub of Breyers Smooth & Dreamy Ice Cream. At the request of my family I picked up Strawberries & Cream from The Real Canadian Superstore. The product sells for ~ $7.89 CAD.

What is unique about this ice cream? Well, the proprietary Cream Press System splits the cream into ultra fine molecules which allows the droplets of cream to expand at its maximal capacity in the freezer. The Smooth & Dreamy ice cream collection still has the same wholesome taste of regular ice cream but half the fat. 1/2 cup (125 mL) of the Smooth and Dreamy ice cream is only 120 calories!

After cracking the lid open I instantly fell in love with the appearance of the marbleized ice cream, and aromatic smell of vanilla and strawberry. The Strawberry & Cream is a vanilla flavored ice cream surrounded by freshly pureed pink strawberry swirls. I am happy to report that the ice cream is thoroughly consistent in taste and texture.

I was further amazed by how fluffy, and scoop-able the ice cream is. I find regular ice creams rock-hard and difficult to scoop, but I wasn't met with the same challenge with the Smooth & Dreamy product.

The Smooth & Dreamy ice cream doesn't taste like bland low-fat or “diet” ice creams. My family and I were extremely pleased with the smoothness and richness of the Strawberry & Cream ice cream. The ice cream is refreshingly flavorful and completely satisfying. Although, I personally found the product is a bit sweeter than other regular ice creams.

Nevertheless, Strawberry & Cream is premium quality ice cream that I have recommended to friends and co-workers. I have already re-purchased the Strawberry & Cream flavor for the hot summer months ahead.
