Princereigns Ingrown Hair Serum Review & Giveaway


Tired of those ingrown hairs and/or razor bumps from shaving? How would you like to have a soft, smooth, and even complexion? Princereigns Ingrown Hair Serum helps eliminate ingrown hairs and razor bumps in 2 days by softening and straightening the hair follicles and preventing future ingrown hairs. The product is suitable for both men and women. This is used by many celebs and models to achieve a flawless complexion.

Princereigns is made from natural ingredients that include chamomile, sage, vitamin E, and lavender. It is oil free and will not cause acne, and won't stain your clothing. It is safe on sensitive skin. It does not dry and does not burn or irritate skin. Princereigns also removes dark spots and blemishes.

I was given the opportunity to try and test the product. It worked miracles in just a few days and saw results. I had dark spots on m skin and now it is hardly noticeable. It's more effective than the other brands I've tried out there. This may or may not work for everyone as everybody has different reactions. So far, it works for me and I'm liking it. A little pricey, but it's worth the results if you want to get rid of the nasty razor bumps and dark spots. I wish I had discovered this earlier in the summer time when I am shaving more often.

Princereigns is the premiere ingrown hair serum. It is more than just a shaving gel. If you wax or shave, you can't be without it.

TriLash Review & Giveaway (CLOSED)



There are many ways to get fuller and longer lashes such as applying false lashes, mascara, or lash extensions. When I heard about TriLash and read about it on their website, I thought it was something I could try and see if it works for me. After a week, I saw results and was amazed. It was very noticeable that my lashes looked longer and thicker. No more hassle of false lashes or applying mascara. TriLash just saved me time and it was so easy to use.




TriLash is designed to help create fuller, longer, thicker lashes in weeks. Now you can experience your best ever eyelashes quickly and safely with TriLash. Longer, more luscious lashes will transform your overall look & experience dramatically. Get thicker, fuller & heavier lashes with TriLash without the need of a doctor visit.

What I like was the thin applicator brush for precise application. The serum is clear and is made with safe peptides and natural ingredients. It doesn't irritate my eyes at all or have any side-effects. With just two easy applications a day (I used once in the morning and once at night), you can achieve the long, full, voluminous lashes you have always wanted. Consistency and daily use is the key to the best results.

Epsom Salt Spa and Beauty Treatment Review & Giveaway (CLOSED)

I've heard of Epsom Salt, but never knew there were so many uses. I was glad that I had the opportunity to try it out. I decided to try it for my facial and DIY in-home spa treatment. As a busy mom, I deserve some pampering once in a while.

Unlike regular salt, Epsom Salt is magnesium sulfate and has many uses in agriculture, health, and beauty. Sulfate helps form joint proteins and helps keep joints healthy, flushes toxins, and improves absorption of nutrients. Magnesium regulates more than 325 enzymes in the body, performing more functions than almost any other mineral. It helps reduce inflammation to relieve pain and muscle cramps.

Epsom Salt is inexpensive and offers the similar spa treatments in the comfort of your own home. I am using it for bath and face. Here are the list of benefits I've experienced:

- doesn't dry out skin
- does not smell
- really exfoliates well
- gives skin a soft feeling
- provides a relaxing bath experience






The following lists the usage with Epsom Salt along with some health & beauty tips:

1) Glowing skin exfoliating treatment: Mix 2 cups of Epsom Salt with 1/4 cup of petroleum jelly and a few drops of lavender essential oil. Use the mixture to gently scrub away dry skin patches.

2) Micro-dermabrasion Facial: Mix 1/2 tsp of Epsom Salt into cleansing cream for a deep-port cleansing. Massage gently on skin. Rinse with cool water and pat dry.

3) Bathtime Bliss: Add 2 cups of Epsom Salt to the water in a standard-sized bathtub and soak for at least 12 minutes, three times weekly.

4) Pedicure: Dissolve a half cup of Epsom Salt into two quarts of warm water. Pour the water into a container and soak your bare feet for 15-20 minutes. Massage the entire foot with Epsom Salt concentrating on the heels and angles to remove any dry, rough spots. Then, rinse your feet off with clean tap water and dry thoroughly.

5) Homemade Bath Crystals: Mix 2 cups of Epsom Salt with a few drops of fragrance to create a custom bath crystal. Add a few drops of food coloring or 1/2 tsp of glycerin if you like. Store in an air-tight container.

6) Natural Hair Volumizer: Combine equal parts warm conditioner and Epsom salt, work the mixture through your hair and leave for 20 minutes.

7) Spa treatment: After showering, massage handfuls of Epsom Salt over wet skin to exfoliate the body. It's the same treatment many upscale spas use, without the upscale price!

Epsom salt can be used to help reduce itching from mosquito bites, bee stings, mild sunburn, poison ivy, etc. It will reduce the swelling and eases the itching sensation.




To learn more about Epsom Salt and its benefits, visit the Epsom Salt Council website.

EvoraPlus Oral Care and Teeth Whitening Review & Giveaway (CLOSED)


Everyone wants to get whiter teeth, but don't want to spend a lot nor want the hassle. I had my teeth whitened professionally previously, but I don't want to spend on that again because it's expensive! There is a way that you can whiten teeth and freshen your breath anywhere and anytime for a lot less. I occasionally drink coffee and often drink juice (such as blueberry juice or grape juice) that stains my teeth. I was given the opportunity to try EvoraPlus Probiotic Mint Oral Care.






EvoraPlus, from Oragenics, is a one-of-a-kind all-natural probiotic mint that whitens teeth, freshens breath, and also supports healthy teeth and gums. Within 30 days of using EvoraPlus twice daily, the natural healthy oral balance of good bacteria will be greatly restored and you will begin to notice a whiter, brighter smile and long-lasting fresh breath. I've tried for a couple of weeks and did notice some changes. My teeth look and felt more healthier and I was happy with the result.

Daily use of EvoraPlus is a fast, easy and effective way to naturally promote oral health and economically replace mouthwashes, tooth whiteners and breath fresheners.

Also available for kids is the EvoraKids Probiotic Chews, but little Brandon is too young to try the product. It is meant for kids ages 3-10. Hopefully, next year I can have Brandon try.




WHERE TO BUY
EvoraPlus products are available for purchase directly from their online store or at your local Walgreens Stores.

STRIDE Everyday Panties Review & Giveaway (Closed)



After having kids, you feel that your bladder isn't the same like it did before. I discovered STRIDE Femme™. The panties have a built in panty liner when you need some light protection. The built-in liner is made with OQUOS™ technology.

What is OQUOS™ technology?
It's designed to wick away and absorb moisture (up to 1 ounce), deodorize and keep you fresh. The first layer of the OQUOS™ technology wicks away moisture 8 times more effectively than cotton for superior dryness. It is designed to maintain its shape to improve body contact during normal activity (such as walking, running or sneezing) and will continue to provide comfort and protection for up to 100 washes. Plus, it’s so discreet no one will know you’re wearing it! These panties are comfortable for everyday wear.


About the Founder
Wendy Spencer is one of those contemporary, active women who discovered that after having her child she was experiencing more "oops" moments than before. Also, as a marathon runner, she needed extra protection when she was exercising, and was tired of using wasteful disposable pads everyday. During a trip to Korea, Wendy unearthed the technology that was already enjoying great success. Wendy was inspired and knew the secret to its success was to make it fashionable.


Thank goodness for Stride Femme™. With everything else going on in your life, light leaks should be the last thing on your mind. With OQUOS™ patented technology built right in the liner, you can focus on what's important.

Features:  washable,  keeps you dry, breathable, cost-effective, deodorizes, stylish, comfortable, discreet, confidence boosting, convenient

Book Review: A Homemade Christmas

I was given recently the opportunity to review a book called A Homemade Christmas (Creative Ideas for an Earth-Friendly, Frugal, Festive Holiday) by crafter Tina Barseghian. It was published September 1, 2010 by Harlequin. In her book, she offers inspiration and easy-to-follow how-to's to craft this year's holidays into your most memorable celebration yet. With her delicious recipes, tips and countdown-to-Christmas projects, Tina Barseghian, reminds readers that you don't need to blow the budget or stress out because it's almost Christmas. The key to a relaxing, joyous holiday season includes involving your children, family members, and friends in the fun.


The book is filled with great ideas on how to be creative this festive season. I'm a person who loves to get creative and loves crafting. I think it will be also fun to have my little toddler Brandon to help out too. My favorite is creating a customized pop-up card.







Making something with your own hands—whether it's a plate of just-baked cookies, a handcrafted stocking, a homemade wreath, or a hand-folded origami ornament—is a great way to connect with the true meaning of Christmas.

From holiday decorating to gift giving, A Homemade Christmas is chock-full of projects, recipes, tips, and helpful hints that are guaranteed to add a homemade touch to your holiday season. Open this charming volume to any page and discover a wealth of practical and easy-to-accomplish ideas for a homemade holiday:

• create personal, distinctive holiday greetings
• deck the halls with festive, handmade trimmings
• cook simple but memorable homemade dishes
• make unique, handcrafted gifts
• share the joy of the season with friends and family

Packed with inspiration and how-tos for ideas that are family-friendly and eco-conscious, festive and meaningful, A Homemade Christmas will put homemade back into your holidays!



BUY IT
The book is available for purchase directly at eHarlequin online store or on Amazon.com.

Solarcaine First Aid Medicated Spray Review

Solarcaine is a great and convenient medicated spray for temporarily relieving the discomforts of burns or insect bites. Solarcaine is a registered trademark of Schering-Plough HealthCare Products Inc.

I was given the opportunity to review the Solarcaine First Aid Medicated Spray. During the time I got sunburned from being exposed to the sun too long at the park, I used the spray to relieve the pain and the burning sensation went away almost immediately. It provided a cooling relief of skin pain and itching from minor burns, cuts, and scrapes.

Since my toddler is just under 2 years, I didn't feel comfortable having him use the product. I was afraid it would sting him. Brandon only got sunburn on the tip of his ears once during this summer, but it wasn't very bad. Whenever he has cuts and scraps, I'd only use aloe gel for him. My husband and I will be using Solarcaine when we need it.

Directions from packaging: Adults and children 2 years of age and older: Clean the affected area. Spray a small amount of this product on the area 1 to 3 times daily. Do not spray directly on face. To apply to face, spray in palm of hand and gently apply. Children under 2 years of age: consult a doctor.

Ingredients from packaging: Active Ingredients :Benzocaine 20% (Benzocaine is an anesthetic agent that rapidly numbs the skin temporarily); Triclosan 0.13%. Inactive Ingredients:Isobutane, SD Alcohol 40 (35% WW), Propylene Glycol, Diisopropyl Adipate, Tocopheryl Acetate (Vitamin E Acetate).

Warnings from packaging: FLAMMABLE-Do not spray while smoking or near heat or flame. Use only as directed. Intentional misuse by deliberately concentrating and inhaling the contents can be harmful or fatal. Keep this and all drugs out of the reach of children. In case of accidental ingestion, seek professional assistance or contact a Poison Control Center immediately.

WHERE TO BUY: Solarcaine products can be purchased nationwide at food, drug and mass retailers. Price range between $5.99 and $6.99 in a 3oz (85g) spray can.


Disclosure: I received the Solarcaine First Aid Medicated Spray at no charge in exchange for a review of my opinion. Thanks to Padilla Speer Beardsley PR and Solarcaine. The opinions expressed are my own personal and honest thoughts. No other compensation was given.

Book Review & Giveaway: Tracy Anderson's 30-Day Method (Closed)

Did you know muscles get bored, just like people do? And did you also know that there's a 9 out of 10 chance that you're working the wrong muscles when you exercise? With TRACY ANDERSON'S 30-DAY METHOD you don't have to worry--her unique workout will help you drop the weight and shrink your body in just 30 days.

Based on ten years of scientific research and experience getting not just herself, but A-list stars and everyday people, red carpet ready, Anderson has developed a unique 30-day diet and workout routine that reshapes the body and defies genetics to tone the muscles and drop the pounds. While most people incorrectly target their major muscle groups, like the bicep or hamstring, the focus should be on the smaller accessory muscles that can create a long, lean, balanced look--instead of bulked up look. Anderson's program is composed of a groundbreaking three-tiered approach, including a mat workout and cardio routine targeting the all-important accessory muscles, and an exclusive 30-day meal plan, complete with dozens of delicious recipes.

As a fitness trainer and former professional damcer, celebrity trainer Tracy Anderson shows you how to lose weight and get a lean body. She has helped women shape and sculpt their bodies, including celebrities like Courteney Cox, Kristin Davis, Emily Blunt, and Gwyneth Paltrow.

Tracy Anderson's new book comes with a 30-day diet plan along with some great recipes for a nutritious, balanced diet. The exercise routine and the illustrations are easy to follow. This comprehensive kick-start program is unlike any other workout on the market and it leaves no chance for anything but terrific, fast results! If you stick with the program, you will see results.

I received the opportunity from HachetteBooks to review this book. It includes a foreword by Gwyneth Paltrow and endorsements from many other celebrities. The book also includes Tracy's exclusive 30-Day Method DVD. Tracy Anderson's 30-Day Method: The Weight-Loss Kick-Start that Makes Perfection Possible will be published/released on September 20, 2010.

Skin MD Shielding Lotion SPF15 Review & Giveaway

There are so many different types of moisturizing lotions out there and it's a bit tough choosing a favorite one that works. I recently discovered Skin MD Natural and was given the opportunity to try out their products. I received the Skin MD Natural Shielding Lotion with SPF15 to review.



The skin on my hands and feet are always the most dry, especially during cold days. I've been applying the lotion once daily for about a week and do notice a difference. With continued use, the chapping and redness from skin allergies are slowly diminishing and restored my skin's moisture. It's a bit pricey, but it does prove to be effective. Skin MD Natural prevents dry skin with a silky smooth hydrating shield. Even though the lotion says for face, it makes my face feel oily and shiny-looking so I only use for arms and legs and body.

It's nice that it is fragrance-free (just only a slight scent of the sunscreen) since I am quite sensitive to strong-smelling perfumed lotions. I also like that the Skin MD lotion is safe for children to use, especially for my 2-year-old son. He has sensitive skin and has eczema. I wasn't sure if the lotion would give him a reaction, but it's been working quite well.



The Lotion wasn't too runny. I'm not a fan of runny kind. It was actually creamy and can be easily applied without dripping. It's also non-greasy and absorbs quickly. The 4oz bottle was a great size to put in my bag for on-the-go and/or for traveling.

About Shielding Lotion:

There are thousands of skin irritants in our modern environment that didn't exist even 50 years ago. These irritants can strip the protective barrier off your skin causing dry skin, eczema and other skin problems. This brings about the need for a new type of dry skin care solution – Skin MD Natural Shielding Lotion.

Shampoos, antibacterial soaps, cosmetics, fragrances, colorants and other irritants bombard and penetrate the skin. These harsh chemcials and irritants break down the skin's natural protective ability, and strip away moisture, while other lodge in the pores causing irritation and other negative reactions.

Unfortunately, conventional lotions have one basic goal - to simply make up for the moisture that our bodies are losing by adding an external source of moisture. Many common household products and even soaps are absorbed directly into your skin, causing skin disorders or just plain dry, cracked skin. Also, when participating in activities from gardening to painting, furniture restoration to fishing, or any exposure to harsh weather you are further drying and irritating your skin.

Using Skin MD Natural Shielding Lotion adds an extra layer of hydrating protection to skin that helps prevent the absorption of irritants and chemicals that are responsible for dry, cracked skin.

Features:
- unbeatable lasting moisture without irritation
- restore skin's healthy natural appearance
- find relief from tough to handle skin conditions
