Aveeno Skin Relief Gentle Scent lotion #review

I have been a fan of the Aveeno line since my boys were both born with very sensitive skin on their faces and this was the only product line that didn't make the condition worse. Over the years my skin has also gotten more sensitive so I have started using the Aveeno line more. However I missed being able to use scented products so I was super happy when Aveeno announced their new line with a gentle scent. I have been using the body wash and lotion for the last week and my skin feels like it's not the middle of winter I am not having as much dry skin or ashiness as is sometimes the case. I also really enjoy the scent. It's hard to describe I just call it a splash of summer. It seems to have a bit of a coconut scent that I just adore. This product lives up to the expectations of all Aveeno products and I would recommend it to those with sensitive skin for sure.

I am a member of the Aveeno Crowdtap page and was given a sample size of the body wash and lotion in exchange for my review all the statements here are my own

Johnson's Baby Bedtime products #review

Johnson's has always been one of my very favorite infant products for all four of my kids. I was excited to get to try this new line of products from Johnson as it is for using for bedtime. They have the lotion, all in one bodywash/shampoo, and bubble bath. I will share a bit about each with you.
My favorite product is the bubble bath-
 frankly I have told J that he has other bubble bath and the nice big purple one is Mommy's. I love the scent that this product has and it keeps my/ and J's skin really moisturized which we need as the heater is starting to run more and we have a drier house.
I also enjoyed the body wash in this product line is the body wash.
First off is this not the prettiest bottle of body wash you have ever scene? Maybe I am biased because purple is my favorite color but when I got this I just LOVED the color of the product. I love the long lasting scent on this. When I am holding J I smell his hair for about two days and it smells great. I think it does a good job too of not drying out J's skin. 

The final product in the bedtime line is the lotion. 
I was a bit disappointed in the scent of this one. The other two seemed very warm and soft but this had a bit of a sharp smell and I didn't like it as much When I put it on J. But it did have a good long lasting softer scent. This product goes on very nicely and rubs in very well I love this line and enjoy getting to use in on J, because I know my baby product days are limited he is growing up so fast!
I am a member of the Johnson's insider Crowdtap page, thank you to Crowdtap and Johnsons for providing me these products so that I could tell you about them. All the words here are my own.

TAZO Chai Tea Sample #Review

Fall is here, which means it's time for me to finally pull out my coffee mugs and drink some hot drinks. I was so excited to get some free samples from Smiley360 and TAZO to try their vanilla caramel latte tea concentrate. This is the easiest fun tea to make. All I have to do is pour half a cup of milk into my cup and half a cup of the concentrate and then microwave it. The cool thing is depending on how strong you like your tea you can add more concentrate or more milk. If a person wants a very large mug of tea that's fine just add equal parts of both the concentrate and the milk. I personally love the concentrates and have had them in the past. They have a wonderful Mocha flavor and a seasonal Pumpkin Spice. Which I still have not been able to find but am hoping since we are going to the city this week I will finally be able to buy some. I was also able to try out a few of the tea bags and while I enjoyed them I 100% prefer the concentrate. Not that it tastes bad it is totally a personal preference. So the next time you want to put your feet up and just try to stay warm on a cold day check out this wonderful product.

Thank you Smiley360 and TAZO for the free samples I was able to have and share with friends and family. All the words here are my own.

Spontuneous Board game #Review

I love board games and I LOVE to sing. I have my music on my i-pad going all day long. So when I had the chance to try out the new game called Spontuneous I was very excited. The game is fairly simple- each person writes down 3-4 words that are in a song that they think maybe someone else won't think of. For this example we will use the word light. Now if this is my word and I say it the first person to come up with at least five words to a song and sing it gets to roll the dice. So for light someone could sing Light im up up up Light im up up up on on fire... or You Light up my life... or This little light of mine, I'm going to let it shine. That is why I had so much fun with this game because basically all people can play and they don't even have to like the same types of music. my kids had a blast playing- we put the middles on teams with their grandparents and they even thought of some songs to sing. I was supposed to try this game out with more people but we had a family thing come up but I plan to play it with a whole bunch of people over Thanksgiving. I am excited to see how the game goes and I know that it will never be the same game twice because people have different tastes in music. I would highly recommend this game and if you want a coupon to get $5 off please let me know and I will make sure to get you a code! Click on this link to buy it on amazon.


Thank you to Spontuneous and Tryazon for the free board game in exchange for my opinion everything said here is my own words.

Say Ahhh! #Listerine #Review

Nothing is worse than being in a situation when you want to talk to someone in a close situation. I love this little pack as it's super easy to put in my pocket or my purse. I enjoy the ease in which these can be used too. It is not always possible to brush your teeth in an everyday situation but popping one of these in is super easy and discreet as well. The pop of flavor is great although pretty strong. I used these after having eaten spicy meatballs. They did a pretty good job of getting rid of that smell as well.I’m a member of the Crowdtap LISTERINE® rewards program, and LISTERINE® sent me a sample of its LISTERINE COOL MINT® POCKETPAKS® to review.

Frozen Kleenex #Review

Winter is upon us- which means in my house I have a child with a constant runny nose. J has gotten very sick every winter because when he was a baby he had RSV. His lungs seemed to never have recovered so we spend a lot of time at home with a sniffly nose and nasty green stuff coming out of. Let me tell you J HATES having his nose wiped... He kicks he screams he wriggles away. And then a Crowdtap box came to my house and had Disney Frozen characters on the side of the box and the little pocket packs, and all of a sudden I can wipe J's nose whenever I want to. What?
If I had known that all it would take was Olaf on the side of a box to get J to let me wipe his nose- well we would have be searching stores for this product! He feel so big carrying these with him and loves having his own pack. 
These Kleenex are awesome- they are called "Cool touch" and I am not sure what that is supposed to mean but when you put the tissue on your nose- it is cool. I think this will be great when that first red and sore nose hits our house this winter. I mean I know this is just a way to get us to buy their product because I am pretty sure no kid has ever begged their parents to buy Kleenex before. But if this works two ways at my house and J will actually use them instead of run away from me. We are a household who is going to buy this product. I am a Crowdtapper insider and was given a free product in exchange for my honest review. All the words here are my own.

#Tryazon #RoosterFin board game night #Review

Game night! Something the Nordgren family does a lot of. So it is always super fun when a company gives us some to try out for them. These three games are Mohawkz, Lumpy Cubes and Rooster Race. They are all put out by the company Roosterfin I have written reviews for all of them on Amazon which is a great place to pick these games up. I will start with our favorite. Rooster Race- it is basically a high low game with corn pieces that you get to collect if you get the answer right- if you get it wrong you have to put the piece of corn back in the the middle. The whole family loved it and all the moms and dads who played it where the most impressed with this one. One small problem the company should have had more corn pieces we often ran out.

Lumpy Cubes is a speed game. There is a deck of cards and you turn one over and then with your four cubes you have to match what the card says. My kids really liked this game and had a great time playing with adult supervision but it was easy enough they did not have to. 

Mohawkz was my least favorite but the kids really loved this one. It is basically six ping pong balls and there is a cardboard cut out that the player tries to get get their balls to land in. I thought it looked very cheap but the giggles and laughs would probably be worth the 12 dollars selling price.


Thanks again to RoosterFin and Tryazon for giving me a sample of all of these games in exchange for my review.

o.b. pro-comfort tampons #review

Not everyone's favorite thing to talk about, but something most females experience on a monthly basis. I was able to try the new o.b. comfort tampons thanks to a sample pack from Crowdtap. The pros of this product- very discreet because of the size, you can easily fit one or two or even five in your pocket and no one would ever know. Also they don't have an applicator which is better for the environment. They also are comfortable. The cons some women can't get past the no applicator thing although I don't see a problem with it. The other thing I didn't seem to understand it they seemed to have a coating on them so they didn't absorb as well as I had hoped. The little teal case in my hand can hold five tampons and that is a cute case to throw in my purse

Thank you o.b. and crowdtap for the sample you sent me so that I could share this product with my readers and my friends all the opinions here are my own.

Robitussin 12 Hour Cough Relief #Review

Ok so apparently in the past when you hit around age 12 and had to start taking adult medicine the flavor options were limited to cherry or.... cherry or maybe cherry. YUCK I have always hated the flavor of cherry in my liquid medicine, and cough syrup was THE WORST.. I finally got to the point I would have to coach myself with how to take my cough syrup. Ok Laressa, it's just like some of that nasty shots you used to take in college, they were gross but you did them anyways not bottoms up. Slam my little plastic medicine cup to the counter and say... MADE IT! But not anymore. All I can say is THANK YOU Robitussin for giving us such a good new cough syrup. I have been LONGING since age 12 to have a grape flavored cough syrup. It is my favorite and I didn't understand how no longer serving grape flavorings was a rite of passage.  I was to try this product out for Crowdtap and I was worried because I wasn't sick. But a funny thing happened and I had a few nights where I just started coughing (the kids have had the sniffles as well so I had a little bit of a cold) So I got to try  my new grape flavored adult cough relief syrup and I was not disappointed. It was everything I had hoped it would taste like and it WORKS. This stuff is great I didn't cough for the rest of the night and I felt great. There is no groggy feeling with this and it's alcohol-free which I appreciate. I highly recommend this product and it is also available in Orange- for any of you adults out there who have missed THAT flavor!!! It retails for 7.97 at Walmart. It was 10.99 at Dillons
Thank you Crowdtap and Robitussin for sending me a free product coupon in exchange for my review. My review is my own... it has to be because who else would say this crazy stuff?!?!?

Rhodes 60 Second Cinnamon Rolls #Review

Thanks to Tryazon and Rhodes I was able to try some of their new Microwaveable cinnamon rolls with a group of my friends and family. The product comes with six cinnamon rolls in a bag. I found them at Walmart for about $3.50. The directions are easy pull one out of the bag plop it on a plate and then heat it in the microwave for 60 seconds. The transform before your eyes into a very tasty warm treat. Each bag of rolls also comes with individual frosting packets so a person can put on as much or as little of the frosting as they want. I of course put on the whole package. I have always loved the Rhodes brand and their products- they did not disappoint with these cinnamon rolls. I do however believe the people who need to buy these rolls might be more for singles or couples rather than a large family like mine. I think a lot of people could enjoy just putting one in the microwave and eating it and then not having to worry about them going bad because of not eating them fast enough. HOWEVER they are great for my kids when they want to make themselves a treat. My older two kids have no problem making these by themselves and they get a fun treat and I don't have to lift my feet! Only one small problem is they are pretty high in calories, about 260 with all the frosting. But for a fun quick and easy hot treat I would say these are the way to go and I know they will be a staple in our house!


Thank you Rhodes and Tryazon for the free coupons in exchange for me sharing the rolls and sharing my opinion. All the words expressed here at my own.

iHealth products #review


I was so excited to get the opportunity to try out two new iHealth products over the past month. The first one is their new blood pressure cuff which you can link to an app on your iphone or ipad (which is what I used and then take your blood pressure. We had great fun trying this out on everyone in the family. I have since used mine to kind of record my resting pulse compared to my "after I run 4 or more miles" pulse. The cool thing is the app keeps track of all of that for me and I can enter notes such as right after an 8 mile run in there. I was also super excited that I got to try this product out on someone who I knew had an irregular heartbeat and had just been airlifted a week before to a special hospital. His irregular heartbeats were noted on his test results, so if someone has an issue like that this machine can tell you about it. I also love that there is a screen that shows you where you fit on the bp line. Mine was always in the green the picture here is one of my readings.

The scale- well I had a love hate relationship with the scale. I LOVE the fact that it tells me so much about myself- including when I need to drink more water. But I didn't like what it had to say about my body fat % It wasn't very nice! I say that but I know I could use to lose a few pounds and I know that a lot of it is fat related so it's been fun. This machine also syncs to my ipad and keeps a record of how much I weigh- it is amazing how much this fluctuates. I am also able to have multiple users on the machine (up to 20) so they can all keep track of their weight journey. For some reason not as many people I had to my party wanted to try this as they did the BP cuff! I am super excited that I get to keep this scale because I love numbers and like to crunch them and this program allows me to do that. I would highly recommend both of these products to my readers. I have looked into them a bit more and they have an oximeter which we seem to use a lot with Javan in the winter months to see how good his oxygen level is. I SO want this product. I would always test him and then not remember what the results were. With all of these products if you need to talk to your dr about any of them you can just bring your ipad or iphone with you to your appointment and show them exactly what your readings have been. That is the next thing on my wish list!

Thank you Tryazon and IHealth for the chance to try out these two amazing products. I was given them free of charge in exchange for my opinion. All the words expressed here are my own.

Folgers Flavor Enhancers #review


Thanks to Crowdtap and Folgers for sending me some free samples to pass out to my friends and family in exchange for my review. I was excited to get to try this product but when I opened the box I was a bit worried because it kind of smelled like those coffee scented candles. I just didn't want it to taste like that. I made my coffee and then used the Mocha flavor. I have to be honest I am kind of a hard coffee drinker to please and I wasn't quite sold on this product. The crazy thing is I had a bunch of samples to give out and gave them to my coffee friend drinkers some of them thought this was the best product ever and some of them were a bit disappointed. So I am going to say if you like to liven up your coffee than try it. It only costs a couple of bucks to find out if you like it! Thanks again Crowdtap and Folgers.

#simplifyit products #review #tryazon #gotitfree

Thanks to #Tryazon I got to try out some pretty cool products with my friends. There is the flip-it and the collapse it.
my friend Lora here is showing off the cool flip it product. This is to help solve the problem of never being able to get to the very bottom of containers and getting your money's worth. I have used it on my body wash and I love it- instead of having to sit there and bop it and wait till it gets to the top I just leave it in the bathroom like this and my soap is always ready to go. You can also use these products on food bottles like ketchup or chocolate syrup. The Collapse-It are storage containers that you can put in the microwave, freezer, or oven and they work in all those conditions the cool thing about them is that when you want them to be stored all you do is collapse them down and they basically don't take up any space.  I really enjoy both products although the Collapse-It is my favorite because I need some space savers in my house!

Thank you Tryazon and Collapse-It and Flip-It companies for giving me these products free of charge. All the words here are my own and I love telling my readers about new products!

Snuggle Bear Den Adventures

So I am part of a community that sent me a FREE little Snuggle Bear to go on some summer adventures with us. We had a great time taking him to the Bentemen family reunion and going on some swings and slides and then getting to go on the train around the park in Gage Park. It was a lot of fun, hot but fun, and we got some really good pictures. After this event Javan kind of took over being Snuggle Bear's tour guide and has laid claim to him staying in his room. Enjoy the pictures below!


thank you snuggle bear den community for our free little bear. I was asked to take him on an adventure all the words here are mine. And in return we got to keep the bear

The Presidential Game board game #review

Over the 4th I was able to test a new board game. So excited to have found a place to test board games oh my. The Presidential game is a game where you try to campaign or fundraiser to win votes so that you can become the president of the United States. We played it several times with Kiah and thought it was great for her to learn how an election is run. We also learned the importance of fundraising in some states and why people don't spend a lot of money in other states. We had a lot of fun and it was very competitive the game takes about an hour to play. The only problem I have with the game is it isn't designed for many people to play. Since there are only two teams it really is a game for two people and at the most four. I think we will actually get this board out at the next presidential election and follow along with this. This game gets 4 out of 5 stars, ONLY because it is not a game you can play with many people.

Dabble Board Game #Review

Nothing like meeting the almost sis-in-law's family over a board game. You can learn a lot about a person from how they play a board game. There was a certain game that Kjell and I stopped playing early on in our marriage because it was the only reason ever in our marriage that we have gone more than a day without speaking to each other. It is fun to see who is competitive and who is not. So when I found out we would all be at Kjell's parent's for Memorial Day weekend I knew after the BBQ was the time to pop out my new game, called Dabble

It is a fun word game that reminded me a bit like Scrabble but better- easier in some ways and harder in others. I loved how my eight year old daughter really enjoyed playing, but her grandma also thought it was a great game it's one of those games where you can probably say ages 8-98! The goal of the game is to be the first one to make your tiles a 2,3,4,5 and six letter word on your board. It's a bit easier because they do give you a lot of vowels. That was truly helpful! It was a fun game where you are making your individual board but it's also not so quick paced that there couldn't be some friendly bantering going on! 

We had two games going the night we played one group was playing as pairs and then we had the other game as individuals. Even this way there was dominance presented by a certain duo, who played both the individual game and the team game. So they got to go home with their own game.
So excited to get the opportunity to play this game and give you my review. It is always fun to try new games and I love playing games with both sides of my family- we play games all the time. It was fun to get a new one we had never tried. Thanks Dabble and Tryazon for giving me a free product in exchange for my review. All the words stated here are my own.

Johnsonville Grillers #Review

I was so excited to get to try these- especially when I saw that they had CHEDDAR and BACON ones. They were easy to find, even having them in Abilene. We decided to cook them up and invite some friends over. Here they are in the upper right hand side of this pan- not too appetizing of of the box and I was afraid they were going to shrink. They didn't shrink and they actually were beautiful and plump as well.  


Here is one of them on Kjell's plate- we actually didn't get any close ups because everyone just devoured them. They were so good so amazingly good. I can not wait to get my next box of these. They do come in different flavors but I would highly recommend this flavor. I didn't actually see any bacon pieces but the cheddar was very present and the taste was amazing. 

Thank you Crowdtap and Johnsonville for giving me a free sample of this product in exchange for my review. All words stated here are my own.

Renuzit Pearl Scents #Review and #Giveaway

We have a little game we play here when we get one of the boxes from Purex insiders. If there are different scents Karis and I always choose which one we hope is in the box. Well this time the picture was of five different ones and we picked our two favorites and then opened the box. Only to find they were the two that neither one of us had picked! LOL However we have been using the two we received for the last few weeks now and are very happy with the scent.
The one thing we did notice though was we thought this product worked much better in our smaller rooms, the scent kind of got lost in our bigger rooms but made a big impression in our bathroom. 
I was super excited this time to also get to refresh a spot in my home- If anyone knows me it's hard for me to decorate much in my house I feel like having four kids I don't want too many extra items to have to dust or worry the kids will knock off the wall when they kick a soccer ball in the house- because YES that does happen from time to time. So as soon as I knew I was going to get a $50 gift card to refresh my house I knew exactly what I wanted. I have three school aged kids and a little guy who has his own backpack loaded with diapers. Most days when everyone gets home the backpacks just get thrown on the floor. Why because my house has no entry way it's just "hi welcome to our house"  so I wanted hooks- something to help me keep at least slightly sane in my own home. Bare wall nothing there- it needs help!!


I also found this amazing piece of artwork (I won't tell you how much I spent because I want you to think it was much more than it really was) to go above it and add a pop of color in the room as well. 

AHHHHH!!!! PEACE OF MIND!!!! I plan to also use the hooks for their pool towels when summer comes- because we live at the pool in the summer and towels are just like bookbags- never put away.  So thanks to Renuzit and a fun trip to Marshalls to buy some much needed "breath of fresh air items" I am so excited for the refresh I received.
The Renuzit brand provided me with a sample of Renuzit Pearls Scents in exchange for a product review. However all the words stated here are mine.

Aveeno Daily Moisturizing Lotion and Aveeno Protect and Hydrate lotion Review

I love Aveeno products. They are always what I turn to when I have a new baby because it never fails that for the first few months of their lives their skin is super sensitive. I had always thought of Aveeno as a baby product but I have been given the opportunity to try their product designed for me! I really have dry skin and need a product that lasts on my legs now that summer is coming and I am wearing shorts more often. I really enjoy the lasting effects that the Aveeno Daily Moisturizing lotion had on my legs. I didn't have to reapply after a few hours it lasted all day. I really enjoyed the Protect and Hydrate lotion as well. I used this one on my face when we went to an eight hour outdoors event.  I have extremely sensitive facial skin so I was trying it out to see if I would break out. No breaks out just great protection. I still love the Aveeno product line but I didn't realize I was going to be able to continue to enjoy it even as my kids get older. Thank you Crowdtap and Aveeno for sending me a free product to review. All the words stated here are my own.

Dial Kids' products #review #giveaway

So excited to get to share the Dial kids line with you. As the mother of four kids I am glad that Dial sees a need for my family to give them some fun products to get to use. The first product is the Dial foaming hand soap. This soap has such a fun smell I enjoy using it myself has a nice watermelon scent and the kids just love it.
I was also given some Dial Baby body wash to use on Javan and it works really nice. This is the perfect product for kids who have sensitive skin and need a gentle body wash. When Javan was a newborn he needed a product with no scent because he kept breaking out with a rash when I would use any lotions or body wash with a scent. I Love this product for that reason because it didn't/doesn't cause break outs. Here was my dilemma- now I LOVE scent on my kids so I was trying to think what I could do and came up with the perfect solution I added a few drops of lavender essential oil to the wash because that is a great oil to use before bedtime and our kids always take night baths so I gave it a light hint of scent and still have a great quality product. So along with my two littles I give both of these products two thumbs up. Don't forget to use the Rafflecopter at the bottom of this page to enter to win a free product coupon. Good luck!
Thank you Dial and Purex Insiders for the samples I got to use so that I could give my readers a real picture of how these products work. All of the opinions stated here are my own.

Sweet Tarts Soft and Chewy Ropes #Review

My family would like to tell you a bit about the fun new treat we got to share from Sweet Tarts over Spring Break. The kids were so excited to try a new candy and I was curious as well. My husband loves candy so he was also excited. We were not disappointed we enjoyed these candy ropes and the burst of sweetness that was on the inside. The only problem was we ran out too quickly. My kids are hoping that Sweet Tart adds a few flavor varieties but it will be a guarantee to be back in our house again soon! 

Thank you Smiley360 and Sweet Tarts for the free sample I received. All the words stated here are my own.

Purex Crystals ScentSplash #Giveaway #Review

Whenever I do surveys on laundry they always ask if I like a lot of scent in my laundry and I always answer yes. I just think that if you can smell a great smell after the laundry is done then it actually feels done. If I don't have any scent sometimes I wonder if the clothes are actually clean. So I was super excited to get to try the new fragrance boosters. Karis and I picked which one we hoped was in the box- I wanted to try the green one she wanted the pink one and since Javan's favorite color is blue of course that was the one he wanted. Well he won and we got to try the blue one. The scent boost is very noticable and I really liked it because it did hang out on the clothes when I put them away and then got them out again. I love using scent boosters when I wash clothes to give away or sell because then the people who get the clothes know they are clean! I am excited to smell the other two scents in the store because in all honesty I am not sure this is the scent I would choose- I liked it but it is strong enough you want to make sure you have a scent you almost love before committing :) At least I do. I will highly recommend this product and the last two weeks using it I have enjoyed the smell of my house as I do laundry
Thanks again PurexInsiders and Purex for allowing me to try this product for free. All of the words in this review are mine.

Another Dial Hand Soap Giveaway and Review!

Wow I had a lot of people try to win a coupon for my last giveaway so I am excited to let you know I received three more coupons to giveaway from Dial. This time I got to try the Miracle Oil hand soap. Since I had tried the body wash I knew the smell to expect and I was very happy to get to try the soap. It works really well and has just a fun sweet scent- it's not really a smell I can compare to anything but I do think it smells really nice. I also like the added oil in there which helps my hands not to dry out. So once again I have three coupons. Thanks so much to Purex Insiders and Dial for giving me a sample to try and send me free coupons. All the words said here are my own.

Dial Hand Soap #Review and #Giveaway!

My kids had an intervention with me a few weeks ago and said "mom the winter scented soap has got to go, it's SPRING!" So I was extremely excited to get the new Dial Sugar Cane Husk Scrub Hand Soap while they were at school so I could put it out and tell them I listened to them! I love that Dial is increasing their product line, it makes me very happy because they have always been one of my favorite and the new products that they have come out with in the Hand Soap field are great and will keep them caught up and ahead of many of their competitors. I loved the smell of the Sugar Cane and I loved the added moisturizer in the soap- it also has gentle micro-scrubbers in it to fight off dead skin so it keeps my hands looking healthy. Two other products that I have yet to try but I have coupons for are the  Miracle Oil Liquid Hand Soap and the Omega Moisture foaming Hand Wash with Sea Berries! I can not wait to try this product as when I am in charge of buying the soap I always pick the foam- it just seems easier for the kids to use. I have one product coupon for each of the above mentioned soaps so in the rafflecopter make sure you answer the question as to what order you would like to win them in so that I hopefully get you the one that you want the most.



Thank you Purex Insiders and Dial for giving me a product to sample in exchange for my review. All the words stated here are my own.

Dial Miracle Oil Body Wash Review and #Giveaway!!



So excited to get to try another great product from Dial. If you have read my product reviews in the past you know that until I was in college I thought the Dial gold bar soap was the only soap that was made because that was all that we had in our house. So I grew up loving Dial. But then I fell in love with body wash and for awhile Dial didn't have any products, over the last two years they have REALLY expanded their line. This product here tells me that they aren't going anywhere except better with their body wash line. This new product has Micro Oil Technology which meant nothing to me until I actually took a shower with it. This lather is amazing, I love the richness of the lather and the smell of the product as well. I usually test a product for a few weeks before I blog about it and I kept trying to figure out what this scent was I still don't have a true description of it the closest I can come is warm brown sugar hug and that doesn't really do a great job of letting you know what it smells like!
So with that being said if you want to smell it for yourself in the form of a free product coupon enter to win one of three coupons.

The Dial brand provided me with a sample of Dial Miracle Oil Body Wash in exchange for a product review. However, all opinions expressed here are my own. Except for this- this they make me put ;) just trying to keep the legal jargon fun.

Purex Power Shot Detergent Review and Giveaway!

video

When I was told I was going to get to try this new Purex product I was curious because it sounded like it was nothing I had ever dealt with before so I was really excited to get to try it out. I took a video on my I-Pad so hopefully I will be able to get that to load on here. (I couldn't get that video to load so the next one will not be as impressive since I will have access to both hands!) So the product says Flip.Dose.Done Purex didn't change anything about their laundry detergent they just changed how to get it out of the package! It is the same great Purex products I have grown to love and trust with my clothes only it now comes in a no spill detergent bottle. To use I just flipped it over and and dumped it in the dispenser on my washing machine, as the soap comes out it reloads the chamber to use with my next load of laundry. Throughout the video I was able to hold the tablet and LOAD the machine with detergent, so cool! I am excited to be able to give away three free product coupons to my readers and also if interested I have $1.50 off coupons for people who live close enough for me to not have to mail them. I will be going to Meade and Topeka in the next several weeks so if you are from there or the Abilene area and you don't win a free coupon you have a chance to win one of these.

Brookside Dark Chocolate Crunchy Clusters #review

I love Crowdtap because they always introduce me to new products. Last week I got a bag of this beautiful deliciousness in my mailbox. I was super excited to try them but I HAD NO IDEA they were going to be so good. The amazing dark chocolate flavor with the berries and the little crunchy clusters in them. Well they were just a great pairing. I loved them, and no I didn't want to share although each kid got to try one. They have several other flavors and I can't wait to try the acai and blueberry in dark chocolate as well. That is going to the next bag I get! 
Thanks Crowdtap and Brookside for providing me with a free sample of this product in exchange for my review. All the words here are my own. Thanks for reading!
