My Experience
I've purchased products with shea butter in them before, but never raw shea butter. I'm impressed with the quality. First I tried using it in my hair. I think I used a little too much. Next time I would only use enough to cover my hands and then smooth them over my hair. I especially liked using it on my hands and arms. I like the way it smells and how well it absorbed into my skin.
I would note that having several small containers to put this in would be good so you can easily use the product. 16 oz. is a lot and will last me a long time. I'm excited to try making my own lotion.
Overall I like how soft my skin feels and all the uses raw shea butter offers.

About Foxbrim 100% Pure Organic Argan Oil
Foxbrim's 100% Pure Organic Argan Oil is the pure and absolutely natural solution to your skin and hair problems!
• Unbelievably Lightweight and Easily absorbs into face, hair, skin and nails. 
• You've seen the Hollywood glow. Get it. With a few drops! 
• Known as "Liquid Gold" as the miracle beauty oil that works from head to toe.
• Extremely Fresh and Long-Lasting. 
• EcoCert & Organic Certified - no preservatives, chemicals or artificial fragrances used.

My Experience
I cannot believe how many uses there are for Argan oil! Each application only requires one to three drops. So a little goes a long way and it will last a long time. So far I've used it on my face, my hands, my arms, and my hair. Each time it has absorbed quickly and I don't feel like I have oil sitting on my skin. I especially notice an instant difference in my hair. It looks smoother, shinier and is more manageable. I've heard other Argan oils add fillers so I also like that this is 100% Pure Organic Argan Oil, without any fillers. Overall I think this is a must have product because of all it's different uses!

Foxbrim Vitamin C Serum Review



About Foxbrim Vitamin C Serum
Get the glow! It's never been easier!
Foxbrim provides you the most Advanced and Complete Vitamin C serum on the market.
• Foxbrim's Unmatched Advanced Formula puts the highest quality All-Natural and Organic Ingredients to Work For You. 
• Achieve That Youthful Glow! 
• Reduce and Diminish Fine Lines and Wrinkles. 
• Soothes and Hydrates Under-nourished skin.


My Experience
I like using a Vitamin C serum. It gives my skin the extra boost it needs. What I think makes Foxbrim Vitamin C Serum unique is that they combine Hyaluronic Acid and an Amino Complex into the serum. This eliminates a few extra steps in my routine which I really appreciate. It also saves me money by not having to buy separate products to achieve the desired results. It doesn't have a strong fragrance and the dropper makes dispensing the serum easy too. Overall this Vitamin C serum does what I expect, and more!

- 1 Black "X-Heavy" Band

My Experience
I do not like to go to the gym. So if I'm going to exercise it prefer it to be at home. I don't have a lot of room for exercise equipment so I was excited to try the PhantomFit Resistance Loop Bands. I had to do a little searching to find out exactly how to use them. I started off using the blue band which is the lightest resistance. As a beginner this one worked the best. I like that as I get stronger I'll have the next band to move on to. 
I like that they come with a storage bag. These bands don't have handles so occasionally my hands would get sore. Overall I like how easy they are to use and how portable they are. They can be taken from home, to work, to the gym or even to the park. Wherever you feel most comfortable working out.

Lots & Lots of Fire Trucks Review



About Lots & Lots of Fire Trucks
They're the ultimate fire truck DVDs for kids!  As seen on TV this 2 DVD set includes Lots and Lots of Fire Trucks and Firefighters Book.  Spectacular camera footage combined with award winning sing-along songs and music by James Coffey and lots of real-life sounds make the thrilling action of these mighty machines a favorite among young and old alike! This 128 page full color book is loaded with lots of exciting color photos of fire trucks and firefighters in action, interesting facts, fire science, safety tips, history, recipes, trivia, and just about everything you’d ever want to know about the world of fire fighting.

Our Experience
For the past three Christmases Mr. R has asked Santa for a firetruck. He was very excited when I showed him the book and DVDs. He sat and watched an entire DVD, completely engaged! 
Mr. R's favorite chapter is on the Rescue Vehicles. He hasn't started reading yet so all the color photos make it a lot of fun to look at. For the chapters that require reading we can sit together and enjoy all the great information.
I like that each DVD is just over half an hour. Just long enough to keep my boys entertained but not too long that they get bored. I also like that they are educational. The music is nice and I don't mind listening to it in the background. I'm sure this would make a wonderful birthday or Christmas gift for the fire truck lover.

CreativeBug Craft Classes and Workshops Review


About CreativeBug
CreativeBug's mission is to be your go-to source for online art and craft instruction.

Whether you’re an accomplished artist or just getting acquainted with a glue gun, these workshops provide project ideas, expert guidance and a healthy dose of creative inspiration.
Each workshop is broken down into video segments so you can skip ahead or watch a video again and again until you master a technique. From beginning sewing to advanced knitting, CreativeBug has a class to inspire your creative side. Classes can be purchases A La Carte or as part of a Subscription.
My Experience
I absolutely love crafts and being creative! CreativeBug has so many amazing projects I almost didn't know where to start. I chose to make a Six Pocket Keepsake Book. The videos are simple and detailed. I like that I was able to pause and catch up while in the middle of the video. I used a standard 8 1/2 X 11 piece of card stock. As you can see it made a perfect book to display my Artist Trading Cards.
I also like that each project has a materials list so that I know what I'll need before I start. I almost tried making Suminagashi Ink Marbling, but didn't have everything I needed on hand. So I know what I'll be doing this weekend.
I encourage you to take a look and see all the different classes that are available. No matter your medium or skill level I think you will find something to inspire you! I'd love to hear which project looks like the most fun to you.

Meet Lulu - 2-in-1 Coloring Book Review



About Meet Lulu - 2-in-1 Coloring Book
Come meet Lulu & her friends; Milky, Bob, Max, Toby, Jill, Lucy, Rudy and Tom. All of Lulu's friends are recyclable consumer goods that represent a part of the life cycle of environmentally friendly products. We believe that when we finish using a product, we should do our best to ensure that its raw materials be reused and recycled for the future of our children and our earth. Use your crayons to color the Lulu book, or simply pick the page in Lulu's Coloring Book that you want to reproduce on your device and scan the QR Code on the top right-hand or left-hand side of that page. It's that easy! Your device will open Painting Lulu's web app page and display a digital version of the page you scanned. Use the digital crayon stylus included with Lulu's Coloring Book and color away!



Our Experience
Mr. R was excited to try this fun new coloring book. The app was easy to download. (Especially because my husband did it for me!) As a parent I like the Earth friendly theme of this coloring book. The digital crayon stylus is fun to use and just right for little hands. It's completely safe to use it on the device. I'd just be sure to explain the this is a special crayon and other crayons don't work the same. You wouldn't want to be cleaning your screen after that mistake. I found that sometimes it was difficult to get the stylus to respond quickly, however Mr. R was able to use his finger in place of the crayon if he wanted to. I also like the very unique feature of my son being able to color in the paper book and then taking a picture and being able to continue where he left off on our iPad. I've not seen anything like it before.
One thing I would note is that I didn't notice much of a variation in the paint and marker functions. It would be nice if there was a bucket paint option that would fill areas with color.

Dreambaby® Car Safety Review




About Dreambaby® Car Safety
Dreambaby® is an internationally renowned child safety brand available in more than 100 countries. Our extensive range of products is specifically designed to provide parents and carers with modern home safety solutions that make it easy to help keep children safe in and around the home. Our products are designed to not only help make your home safer, but also to make life easier. Whether it’s in the kitchen, bathroom, car or out and about, Dreambaby® can help put your mind at ease with award-winning safety gates, locks and latches, thermometers to help when your child is sick, and toilet training and feeding products. 

My Experience


I received two Dreambaby® products for review. The first one was the Dreambaby® Adjustable Car Window Shades. These two shades are perfect for my back windows. They protect all three boys from the sun. They are easy to attach with suction cups. The shade pulls down and is secured with a suction cup and velcro. With the press of a button they quickly roll up. The animals on the shades are doableI would note that the windows can't be rolled down when the shade is in place so you need to plan in advance if you plan to open them. Also, be sure to have your window locks on. Mr. R liked the zebras the best, so I put that one next to him and the tiger one next to Mr. O. 


The second product was the Dreambaby® Babyview Mirror. This mirror attaches with a lever suction cup so it is very secure. The mirror can rotate in any direction and it has a telescoping arm making it completely adjustable. I really like being able to see Mr. C in the back seat. I think it keeps him a little better behaved because he knows I can see him. It's also large enough that I can see his brothers next to him too. It can also attach to the back window so you can see your baby in a rear facing car seat. Both these products have made driving in the car with my kids better.

Because bedtime with Mr. C has become a little more challenging now that he is two I thought I could give this a try. I just mixed a fews drops with water in a spray bottle. Voila! It doesn't work every night, but it's an added resources. If nothing else it can calm me down! I can't wait to try all the other uses for this lavender oil.

Heat Resistant Grill & Oven Gloves Review



About Heat Resistant Grill & Oven Gloves
  • Designed to protect your hands from fire and extreme heat up to 662F (350C).
  • Created from Meta-Aramid and Para-Aramid fibers (similar to Kevlar® and Nomex®), these cooking gloves will fully protect your hands from burning while cooking, baking, grilling, handling hot pots and pans or hot smoker & oven racks
  • They offer firm grip and improved dexterity thanks to the silicone texture on both sides of the grill gloves & the five fingers design

My Experience
As I mentioned before I'm not the best cook, but I do like to bake. These gloves are great for taking my pans in and out of the oven. They fit my hand very well. However, they are a little small on my husbands hands. He could still use them but he didn't find them comfortable. I like that both sides have the rubber gripping surface so there is no wrong way to put them on. Also, the silicone grip makes me feel confident that what I'm holding isn't going to slip. They also have cloth loops at the wrist so I can hang them on an easily accessible hook next to my stove. Overall, I like the function and quality of these gloves.

Speekee - Spanish for Kids Review



About Speekee
Speekee is an interactive Spanish learning program for young children. Speekee was founded in 2006 and has been building a reputation for quality Spanish learning ever since. The program is geared toward children between the ages of 2 and 11. It’s a great resource for primary teachers, homeschoolers and aspiring bilingual parents.

Our Experience
Speekee is an online Spanish language learning program. I was excited to try it because I could use it with all three boys, ages 2, 5 and 8. I logged into the website and let them explore. I thought it would guide them on where to go and what to do. Unfortunately, they got frustrated very quickly. A brief tutorial on how to use the website would be helpful. Eventually we figured out how to move our character and watch a few of the videos. The videos are immersive, in that they only speak Spanish. Without an idea of what is being said they had a head time following along. Also, some of the videos are too long to keep the interest of my boys.
It looks like a great program with a lot of content. I just struggled with knowing where to start. Overall, I think the student has to be very motivated to learn the material. I encourage your to sign up to see for yourself and let your children experience it.

Soap Nuts Liquid Laundry Detergent Review



About Soap Nuts Liquid Laundry Detergent
Green Virgin Products extract a natural soap called saponin from soap nuts and combines it with water to create a 100% non toxic laundry detergent. A small 8 oz bottle does 120 loads!  It will make your clothes softer than you have ever felt them with no fabric softener. Soap nuts are hypoallergenic and have a net negative carbon footprint. They also happen to save you money!

My Experience
I've always been curious about soap nuts. I like the idea of using a natural soap. I've switched from dryer sheets to dryer balls, so this is logically the next step. Now I don't know how regular soap bus work, but the liquid is very convenient. As recommended I used three pumps in each load of laundry. My clothes came out of the wash smelling great and out of the dryer feeling soft. I have a few cloth diapers set aside just in case we have another baby, and I know that soap nuts have been recommended for cleaning cloth diapers. Also, compared to others detergents soap nuts liquid costs less. Lastly, they are much better for the environment. Overall soap nuts have so many benefits that I have to switch! Have you ever tried soap nuts, and if so, what are your thoughts?

About Adovia Exfoliating Facial Sea Salts

Salts also naturally remove bacteria and excess oils, making them a great choice for oily skin types. To use, simply apply the exfoliating salts to a clean, wet face and massage gently.

My Experience
This is a product I had never tried before. The first time I used it I applied it to my wet face. It was rougher than I had expected. I also have slight acne and the salt stung a bit. So the next time I used it I left my usual face cleanser on and added the salt before I rinsed it. This worked much better and left my face feeling smooth. I use this about once a week to exfoliate. I think more often would irritate my skin. Overall, after I learned the best way to apply it to my face I liked the results!
