Eucerin Lotion Review & Giveaway

Eucerin Lotion Review & Giveaway
Ended: Congrats to the winner C.Allen!!
Winter is the time my skin dries out the most. My hands get so dry and it's a pain because I'm always typing and would have to keep applying different lotions/moisturizers that didn't work. It was just so time consuming especially when I have deadlines to meet. I also was wasting so much money trying to find the right lotion.
I have tried many different brands, my hands will be so greasy and the dryness still came right back. How many of you has this problem?
 Well, I was so happy when I received a email to host a review/giveaway for Eucerin because it was a lotion I have yet tried at that time. I received my package in the mail and I went right for the New Eucerin "Professional Repair", I have to say I'm so excited to share with you the results!
Not only was it non greasy, it was so lightweight! I rubbed in a small pea size amount on my hands and I could feel the softness in less then 3 seconds! I was able to type with no problem and it is fragrance free so when I touched my face it didn't feel as if it was on fire! I have to say I'm in love with Eucerin! It surprised me because it lasted for many hours without me having to reapply more. I was even more surprised later that night after taking a nice relaxing bath I rubbed Eucerin on my feet, I'm ashamed to say they needed some tender loving care because they were so dry! My feet are now as smooth and soft as baby's skin. No more cracked lines and roughness. I can't believe the results, I have tried many different lotions and none can compare to Eucerin.
Don't just take my word for it, you can enter to win your own Eucerin Prize Package!!! For details, please keep reading...
Eucerin  is a unique, fast absorbing lotion that combines Ceramide-3, skin’s own moisturizers, and Gluco-Glycerol to improve the condition of skin and help fight dryness at the source.

Funky Monkey Snacks Giveaway Ends 10/27 Ended! Congrats to the winner :
 - Thanks for everyone's entries~winner will be emailed~ 
As parent's we all love for our children to eat healthy, These day's so many snack items are filled with ingredients that are unhealthy.  My kids can be so picky so it's really hard to find snacks that are good for them as well as taste good. When asked to do a review and giveaway for Funky Monkey Snacks I decided to look up the ingredients and check out the reviews about them. I'm happy I did because I liked what I read and ran out to purchase a few bags that evening. 
My intentions were to purchase the Funky Monkey Snacks for my kids but with all the different  delicious, fun, fruit flavors available I felt like a kid all over again and had to taste them myself!! I couldn't resist trying them out and I can honestly say I'm in love! (shh!) Once my kids tried the Funky Monkey Snacks it was heaven for them as well. They liked them, I liked them AND best of all their healthy!
You can't go wrong with Funky Monkey Snacks. I have a bag next to me at my desk that I snack on, not only are they fulfilling but you will get that fruity crunch with the best flavor and all 100% natural fruit! I know it all sounds to good to be true but each bag of Funky Monkey Snacks has 3 servings of fruit, with nothing added - no added colors, flavors, preservatives, or sugars. To top it off their gluten-free, certified Kosher and certified non-GMO! I never would imagine freezer dried fruit  slices would taste so good and have my kids so happy. This is their new favorite snack, I can't go wrong with that!! Were all getting our servings of fruit in.
Funky Monkey Snacks has 7 different flavors. Each day I pack a different flavor in my kids lunch bags. My favorite flavor is the Purple Funk! My kids like the Mango OJ and Carnival Mix the best.

Purell - Keeping Kids Happy and Healthy

Purell - Keeping Kids Happy and Healthy
Our friends at SocialMoms and Purell has teamed up together to bring another fun blogging program for the back-to-school season to talk about keeping our kids happy and healthy going back to class. I have been asked to talk about this as a member of SocialMoms. 

With so many things to do such as shopping for school clothes, meeting the new teachers, making sure your children has their pens/pencils, just checking off the list as the days are counting down it can be easy to forget about "germs". Teaching our kids to cover their mouths when they cough to wiping their nose with soft tissue and always keeping hats with gloves on in the cold weather can be so helpful. Even being around other children who are sick with colds it can be easy to spread germs. We can often forget to remind them to keep their hands clean and sanitized at all times.

Who wants to be going back and fourth to the doctors having to pay high medical bills when all this can be prevented? Attendance is so important for our children, missing days due to colds and coughs can be very hard on their grades.

This is where Purell comes into play to save the day! Purell Advanced Hand Sanitizer is preferred by many leading health professions. Our kids can just dab a little drop on their hands, rub it in and go back to learning. They don't have to leave the classroom to go wash their hands and miss any studies! You can find Purell Advanced Hand Sanitizer at many stores such as walmart, riteaid, cvs, giants, walgreens and more.

 To celebrate, Purell and SocialMoms also have  sharable coupons for you to get a discount on the most popular PURELL® Hand Sanitizer products! How cool is that!!!

So, what are some helpful ideas to help your children go back to school with a smile and be healthy? Please comment below as I'd love to know your ideas!

About PURELL® Hand Sanitizer
Formulation matters. New PURELL® Advanced Hand Sanitizer is scientifically formulated to kill the most germs. Independent tests using FDA methods prove it. Just 1 squirt of PURELL® Advanced Hand Sanitizer kills as many germs as two squirts of any other national brand.* This breakthrough formulation also includes four different skin conditioners that make PURELL® Advanced Hand Sanitizer that will help soothe your skin and maintain moisture – no matter how often you use it. More info on PURELL Advanced Hand Sanitizer:
The Science Behind the Breakthrough.
New PURELL® Advanced Hand Sanitizer offers enhanced bacteria killing power in a formulation that makes it mild and soothing on the skin. The scientists at GOJO, backed by their 65 years in skin health and hand hygiene innovation, were able to develop a formulation that maximizes the impact of alcohol on bacteria. This new family of products works by penetrating the membrane of the germ cell more effectively, maximizing the germ-destroying power of the alcohol. As a result, PURELL® Advanced Hand Sanitizer is proven to kill more than 99.99% of the germs on hands. The innovation that became new PURELL® Advanced Hand Sanitizer was so well received by the scientific community that GOJO won the respected APIC 2011 Rutala Award for a paper devoted to the subject. And now we hand the breakthrough to you.
* Ounce for ounce kills more germs on hands than other national brands. Based on comparative study of average pump bottles using FDA Healthcare Personnel Handwash guidelines. National brands based on 52-week IRI scan data.

Cottonelle - Fresh Care Routine

Cottonelle - Fresh Care Routine

In honor of the Cottonelle Ultra Comfort Care Toilet Paper and Cottonelle Fresh Care Flushable Wipes, SocialMoms has teamed up with Cottonelle and asked for me to share this new blogging program!

Kids are so precious and so cute to watch grow up, as they grow they look to us as their parents to guide them and teach them how to stay healthy and clean. It can be such a pain to constantly repeat myself to my kids to flush the toilet, wipe the seat if you tinkled on it, wash your hands after using the potty, put the seat down, make sure you wipe yourself properly. It never fails in my house to see the toothpaste tube squeezed everywhere besides the bottom of the tube, instead it's twisted all up every which way and toothpaste all out of it with the cap no where in sight!! The soap is always shrinking during showers from being left in their bath water. It can be such a headache to keep up with the kids but at the end of the day I smile because I'm so happy to have been blessed with them. 

It is my pleasure to share with you Cottonelle Ultra Comfort Care Toilet Paper and Cottonelle Fresh Care Flushable Wipes

To get that extra touch of cleanliness use Cottonelle Ultra Comfort Care Toilet Paper then use the Cottonelle Fresh Care Flushable Wipes!! The fresh feeling will blow you off of your feet! I can't imagine not using both of these. It feels like just stepping out of the shower.

Here's the fun part, this process has to have a name, is there a name you would like to name it?? How about having a chance to win some awesome prizes for a name?

Seattle - Sights of Your Life

Seattle - Sights of Your Life

Transitions Lenses and SocialMoms has partnered together in honor of the Transitions Lenses Sightseeing City Tour stop in Seattle at the Washington Brewers Festival and asked if I could help promote this event as well as share my most cherished sights in my life with you!

I think sometimes without realizing it we can take things for granted easily. Our vision is something so important and needed in our life's. Being able to watch the sun set or seeing flowers growing is so awesome.
We have such a beautiful world with so many things to see and nature makes it all possible. It's amazing how we see the color of things such as grass, tree's and animals. Just seeing the sky, the moon and stars is wonderful. Being able to see our children walk and run having fun is a great site to see.

As I type this post I'm remembering a few memorable sites I have experienced as a little girl. One of my most favorite would be when my parents would take me to Long's Park to feed the ducks.  I would sit along side of the water watching the ducks swim all in a row. The mama duck would have her baby ducks following her peacefully. I'd look around and see all of the trees and be amazed how pretty they were. The sun would be bright and I would just be in my own little world. Now that I have kids I take them to the same spot and I watch them enjoy feeding the ducks and being able to experience that great feeling. Without a healthy vision we wouldn't be able to experience these things.
Growing up my mother would always tell me how important our vision is and to appreciate it. I have learned from her by keeping up with eye exams on a regular basis for my children as well. My son and I wear glasses, I make sure we wear them as directed especially when reading. It can be a pain having to clean them sometimes but it's way worth being able to see.

So tell me how does a healthy sight play a role in your family's life? Please feel free to share by commenting below.

For the good news: Transitions lenses, in partnership with Pearle Vision will be in Seattle at the Washington Brewers Festival June 15- 17th 2012. Visit their booth because their offering free vision screenings for the whole family and the opportunity to have your photo taken in front of a scenic backdrop! To read more about this click here.
