Healing Tree Bamboo Charcoal Soap Review & Giveaway

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.
About Healing Tree Bamboo Charcoal Soap
Bamboo Charcoal Soap is 4x more porous than wood charcoal, so it's high in absorbency and is able to draw dirt from deep inside your pores. Unlike normal soaps that only clean the surface of your skin, this soap can free up a lot of dirt that clogs problematic skin if you have acne, eczema, psoriasis, or dry/cracked skin. Bamboo charcoal is made by undergoing a firing process of 1,800 F to create a powder known as "Black Diamond" with high absorbency properties that will cleanse your skin by removing years of accumulated dead skin cells.

With your pores re-opened, your skin will begin to breathe again and naturally moisturize itself. There's no residue like other soaps, contains only four simple ingredients, and has a rich lather. So if you want to feel what it's like to let your skin breathe again, give this soap a try!

Bamboo Charcoal Soap Benefits:
Remove Dead Skin Cells
Unclogs Pores
Smoother Skin
Natural Ingredients
Hypoallergenic
Detoxifying
Fragrance Free
No Harmful Chemicals
No Added Colors
No Animal Testing

Ingredients: Vegetable Oil, Water, Glycerin, and Bamboo Charcoal.

My Experience
This soap is great! I have used it on my face for about 10 days now and much of my blemishes have gone away. My husband commented on how nice my skin looked. That felt awesome. I don't usually like to have pictures take of myself because I don't think my skin looks very nice. Now I am a little less self conscious. It looks green in the picture, but in person it looks black. It does give a nice lather and it rinses easily. It does smell a little like charcoal, which is completely ok with me. I like that it only has four ingredients. Seeing how well this soap works I would also like to try their Green Tea Soap and Bamboo Vinegar Soap.

I have long hair that often looks frizzy with split ends. This shampoo made my hair feel soft and healthy. The shampoo is quite thick and I like the way it smells. It creates a good amount of lather with just a quarter size in the palm of my hand. The shampoo also rinses well. When it was dry I noticed that my hair looked smoother with less frizz.

Zingo!® Time-telling Review

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.


A Fun Way to Learn to Read the Clock
In this time-telling version of our popular Zingo! game, players learn to read the hour and minute hands on an analog clock and make the translation to digital time. With two levels of play, it’s perfect for familiarizing young players with the clock and a great educational game for them to grow with. A wonderful way to turn challenging time-based math into a fun game for the family!
Ages:  5 and up
Players:  2 - 6
Features: 
1 Zingo! Zinger with Easy Cleanup!
32 Hour Tiles
32 Minute Tiles
6 Double-sided Zingo! Cards

Our Experience
Mr. R is at the perfect age to start learning to read an analog clock. He'll start kindergarten next fall. It's also a great review for Mr. O. I love that it is a game that they can play together. 
What I like about the game itself is that the cards are very durable. The hour and minute tiles are color coded for easy identification and sorting. Also, the sliding action of the Zinger is nice and smooth.

I was able to review with Mr. R how we count by fives and how that corresponded to the numbers on the clock face. 


I like that the game can be modified for the ability level of each child. The learning guide that come with the game also outlines some game variations, so the game stays fresh and fun!



 After I showed Mr. O that there was a 'hard' side to the cards he immediately challenged himself to complete all six. Here he is with them all done.

 I know we will use this game for many years and look forward to playing it with Mr. C when he turns five.

Rainbow Bandz Refill Review

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

The refill comes with nine colors. Each color is individually packaged. They are latex free. They are also 100% compatible with all loom kits. Each bag contains a hook and 's' clasp. 600 bands in each package for a grand total of 5400 bands! 


Our Experience
I hadn't jumped on the Rainbow Bandz wagon yet. I wasn't sure the boys would be interested. Boy, was I wrong! As you can see we decided to start simple. This is the first bracelet I made and I've worn it for about a week now and it is still holding together very well. Even with Mr. C occasionally pulling on it. The bands are nice and strong.
At first Mr. O got a little frustrated that he needed help. After he learned how to use the hook nothing could stop him. So far he has made two for friends, six for his brothers, four for himself and two for daddy. I had a difficult time getting a good picture of him working. Trust me, he is enjoying himself!
I you or your kids enjoy this craft, I highly recommend these! If you have experience, what is your favorite design to make using these?


You can read my review on Amazon.
Rainbow Bandz can be purchased here.

Before I even took it out of the box I loved the way it smelled. It wasn't overpowering or too floral, just right! The soap lathered easily. I used it just on my face.

I would recommend this product!

Learning Success Program Review and Giveaway

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.



About Learning Success
The Learning Success program is a simple do-at-home program that will show you how to find the core problems and overcome them. Learning is made up of basic core skills. There are 16 of them in all. Typical learning difficulties are small weaknesses in a combination of two or three of these skills. Helps overcome learning difficulties such as:
  • Dyslexia
  • Dyscalculia
  • Dysgraphia
  • ADD/ADHD
Each of these terms simply means that there is a weakness in two or more of these basic learning skills. But it doesn't define which. Once you get started in the course you'll quickly find the trouble spots. Once you do that your child will be on the path to learning success. You will learn simple exercises that strengthen the skills needed for successful learning. Modern scientific breakthroughs have discovered a number of methods for overcoming these problems. Once you do your child will actually enjoy homework.

Our Experience
I've been working with Mr. O on these exercises. The supply list is very simple:
1. An eye patch
2. Plastic sheet covers
3. Erasable markers (dry erase or wet erase)
4. Bingo markers If you can't find bingo markers large dry erase markers will suffice.
5. Dry erase board
Super easy right!
Every lesson is delivered by email. I'll admit I got a bit behind, but the great part of this program is being able to work at your, and your childs, own pace. After using the program for a couple weeks I haven't noticed a significant improvement, but it does say that it can take up to several months to see results. So we'll just need to be patient.
They talk about having a binder to put all the exercises. I haven't gotten that organized yet, but I do have them all saved in my email so as for now I just have to look up each exercise as we do it. It is helpful if you set up your email so they all get delivered to a dedicated folder.
I think these exercises will also be helpful for Mr. R. He starts kindergarten next year, and I think the summer will be a good time to work with him.

Smartypants Tavern Puzzle Review

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.


About Tavern Puzzle
Tucker-Jones House, Inc. was established in 1975. It is a family business, owned and operated by Dennis and Donna Sucilsky. Tavern Puzzles are reproductions of a type of puzzle traditionally forged by blacksmiths to amuse their friends at country taverns and inns. All the puzzles are handcrafted in the USA and individually assembled. Each puzzle is mechanical in nature; removal of the object piece does not rely on force or trickery. The purpose of any puzzle is to provide a challenge, entertainment, and fun. Our collection does all three, on several different levels.


Our Experience
I love puzzles. I remember playing with wooden and metal puzzles at my grandparents house when I was little. It always felt so good when I would find the solution! The Samrtypants puzzle is a challenge. I've tried for several hours to solve it without any success. I even let my husband try, and to be honest, I think he made it even more unsolveable! I haven't given up yet, so I haven't gone online to look at the solution. I'm glad it's there if I feel I really need it, but I'm pretty stubborn.
The puzzle is very well made! It's made from 6mm steel and feels like it will last forever. I'm sure my kids will be playing with this when they get older.
Tavern Puzzle has a wonderful selection of puzzles. I'd also love to try the Heart's Desire puzzle.
