My Review of Clairol's Root Touch-Up

I received this product via Influenster in exchange for my honest opinion and review after using the product. My only compensation was receiving this product free of charge. Please read my disclosure policy about products reviews.

I received my first VoxBox from Influenster recently. It contained Clairol's Root Touch-Up. Since I don't have any grey hairs, I read that you could use this for defining your eyebrows, so that's what I did.

The product comes in a small compact case that you can carry in your purse, which I absolutely love! And it has a small brush that you use use as well. I took this and lightly shaped and defined my eyes brows. I really loved that it was super easy to apply. It wasn't messy when I was putting it on. The color was a little dark, so I had to use a light powder to lighten it up a bit. I think in the future, if I decide to purchase this product, I will get a shade lighter.

It took less than 5 minutes to apply to both of my eyebrows. It was a lot easier using this to define my eyebrows than using an eyebrow pencil, which is what I normally use to fill in my eyebrows.

I'm not sure if it's good for touching up grey hairs, because like I said before, I don't have any grey hairs so I didn't use it on my hair. I think it would be good to use on the go or if you're in a hurry and can't actually dye your hair. It's definitely a good temporary touch-up tool.

-Effectiveness: I would give 4/5 of the total rating.
-Packaging: I would give 5/5 of the total rating.
-Physical Qualities: I would give a 4/5 of the total rating.

Effectiveness = 4: The color was a bit too dark so I give no points for that. As for the easy application, I give 2 points. It blended well and I love the small compact case it comes in. That's another 2 points.

Packaging = 5: The package comes in a small and compact case. Very easy to put in your purse or makeup bag. Great for taking on the go or if you're traveling. I received the item in great condition when it was packaged and shipped. I give the packaging a total of 5 points!

Physical Qualities = 4: The color looks like eye shadow so it makes it really easy to apply. 2 points for that. You also get a small make-up style brush. It's shaped perfectly to use when filling in your eyebrows. 2 points for that, which gives it a total of 4 points.

Total Rating = 4.5

Current state... on a mission!

That's right... I'm currently on a mission!

What is it, might you ask? 😊 Well, the answer to that is, to help others regain their quality of life through overall health and wellness. That's why I chose to be a health coach. It all started when I myself began to suffer with a chronic illness. Now I want to help educate others and also spread awareness on this epidemic!

I hope you all will continue to join me on this journey. We should all remember to take it one day at a time and to celebrate the small victories. 😉  Slow progress is better than no progress.

Love my Mexican dishes!

Soup Cream Chicken Enchiladas

1 lb chicken breast, diced
1 medium onion, minced
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
8 (8 inch) flour tortillas, softened
1 1⁄2 cups grated monterey jack cheese or 1 1⁄2 cups Mexican blend cheese, divided
1⁄4 cup butter
1⁄4 cup flour
1 (15 ounce) can chicken broth
1 cup sour cream
1 (4 ounce) can chopped green chilies or 2 fresh chili peppers, minced

In a frying pan, cook chicken and onion together in oil over medium-high heat until chicken is just done.

Divide cooked chicken evenly between 8 tortillas; add 1 1/2 tablespoons cheese to each tortilla.

Roll enchiladas and place seam-side down in a 9x13" baking dish that has been lightly sprayed with no-stick cooking spray.
Melt butter in a medium saucepan; stir in flour to make a roux, stir and cook until bubbly, and gradually whisk in chicken broth then bring to boiling, stirring frequently.

Remove from heat; stir in sour cream and green chilies.
Pour sauce evenly over enchiladas.

Top with remaining 3/4 cup cheese (a baking dish may be double-wrapped and frozen at this point) and bake at 400° F for 20 minutes until cheese is melted and sauce near edges of baking dish is bubbly.
