Carmex Skin Care Review and Giveaway 4/9

Image
For over 70 years, people have come to love Carmex Lip Balms~now there is also Skin Care.


                ~Carmex Healing Cream and Healing Lotion~
Looking at the calender it tells me it is Spring,but going outside tells me different. As here in the Midwest it is still winter~as the temps are not as warm as they should be.My skin sure has taken a beating this year,that is why I was super excited to try the products from Carmex.
Carmex Healing Lotion~features aloe and vitamin E to moisturize, heal and protect skin from dryness. It has a light, pleasant scent and is formulated for daily healing and moisturizing. This is a great lotion for after the bath or shower,as it goes on easy and is not heavy or greasy.

Carmex Healing Cream~it is a thicker, more concentrated formula that penetrates deep into the skin to help repair extremely dry, cracked skin.I have been using this on my elbows and feet,as they are super dry. It really has been helping and I like the fact that the scent is light…

Purex Natural Elements Detergent Giveaway 4/13

Image
When it comes to laundry~I am very picky about how it is done. So, I am the one that washes all the clothes in the house. Now that my grandchildren are here~I have to watch what I use,as they have sensitive skin. But my grandson makes sure that he steps in every muddle puddle that he sees I swear!


I have been using Purex Natural Elements in the Tropical Splash scent. Purex Natural Elements is the natural laundry detergent that delivers the deep-down clean you expect from regular Purex detergents, but contains naturally sourced ingredients with natural fragrance extracts. Hypoallergenic and dye-free, Purex Natural Elements detergents are perfect for sensitive skin. Not only does it get your clothes clean,it leaves them smelling fresh. As soon as you open the bottle~you are taken away with the scents of the tropics. I love the hint of pineapple~made me think of sand and sun.

Soft Scrub Total Bath & Kitchen Cleanser Sweeps and Giveaway 3/31

Image
I have been using Soft Scrub for many years now. It has gone through many changes,updates and new products but one thing that hasn't changed is how clean that it keeps my house!
I recently was sent the New Soft Scrub Total All Purpose Bath & Kitchen Cleanser to try out.

“New Soft Scrub Total All Purpose Bath & Kitchen Cleanser is tough on stains, yet gentle on surfaces.  The new and improved formula has more whitening power and less residue, for better rinsing.  That means better cleaning and faster rinsing for your tile, grout, sinks, and tubs.”
I love how easy this is to use~just apply with a wet sponge and rub in gently. The new cap design makes it easier to dispense so there is less mess,not so easy to spill and waste. It has the perfect amount of scent too~the lemon is there but not too overpowering. It made my tiles look like new in the bathroom and the stainless steel sink in the kitchen shines like silver!

I watched this with my granddaughter that is 13 years old,and she could not say anything bad about it.She loved everything about it, her favorite part was the ballet and the costumes.

Rise Of The Guardians Review

Image
~Rise Of The Guardians~
Based on William Joyce's the Guardians of Childhood book series, Rise of the Guardians is a gorgeously animated film about Boogeyman Pitch Black's attempts to spread darkness and fear throughout the world and the guardians' attempts to foil him. Charged with the duty of watching over the children of the world, guardians Sandman, North, Tooth, and E. Aster Bunnymund are loved by children everywhere.   The look of the film, with its 3D palette, is mesmerizing. As Fisher echoed in our Rise of the Guardians cast interview, the movie appears to have been painted by hand. Each stroke of color and landscape is a marvel.
 ~My Review~ I love animated movies,so as soon as this one arrived I grabbed a grandchild to watch with me!{I have to have a excuse you know..LOL} It did not disappoint,as the characters are great and the animation was fantastic.The voices are excellent and fit with each character.There are so many emotions from te…
