Dial Premium Hand Soap

I am currently on the road traveling but will have the review ready tomorrow afternoon. I’ll repost so you can read all about it.



New Dial Vitamin Boost Body Wash




As a part of Purex Insiders I was sent the New Dial Vitamin Boost Body Wash to try for free.   Over the last few years I’ve noticed that in the winter time I suffer from really dry skin and it seems to get worse every year.  Mini also suffers from dry skin every winter. No sooner than the package arrived she was all in the box and one she smelled it she laid claim to it.  Although it has a Kiwi on the front of the bottle it smells a lot like green apple and she loves it.

Not only did Mini love the scent she loves the color of it.  The big question I’m sure everyone wants to know is does it work?  It does indeed.  I’ve needed less lotion for her since she started using it. I’m glad to see that Dial has a coupon so I can pick up some more.  You can grab a coupon for yourself here on their Facebook page.

New Vitamin Boost Body Wash is lotion infused (makes it really creamy), has a new Vitamin Complex including Vitamin B (draws in moisture into the skin) causing your skin to be smooth and hydrated.  It’s a lot like applying lotion while you are still wet from the shower to seal in moisture but now you are using a body wash that does it all for you.  I’m curious to see if Dial will come out with a matching lotion.  I believe that would just increase the moisture that gets locked into your skin.  Head over to Dial and check out what other great products they have.  Has anyone tired the new Coconut Water?  I love the sounds of that.

Purex Crystals New Mountain Breeze Scent

Purex Crystals


I love all things Purex and as a Purex Insider I get to try some of the newest products for free.  I was super excited when I found out that I would get to try the new Fresh Mountain Breeze Purex Crystals.  I know exactly what I was going to use some of them for.  Check out my Homemade Laundry Detergent.  I had been putting off making it and when I seen the Crystals it was high time I did.

I don’t use fabric softner in my towels and love to load the washing machine up with Purex Crystals when I wash them.  The house smells good while they are washing but it smells amazing when they hit the dryer.   The scent lingers in the towels too.

Now don’t worry, it’s not that over powering make you sneeze kind of scent, well maybe if you are huffing the scent of the bottle it might.  Not that I’ve tired that mind you.   Mini is very sensitive to scents and this new one did not bother her at all.  If it passes the Mini test I know we are good to go.

I quickly had everything ready to whip up my laundry detergent and away we went.  I was anxious to try it but of course the temperature did not want to comply and I was not able to try it until yesterday.   Of course I HAD to wash towels first and they came out clean and fresh.   I’m loving the new Mountain Breeze Purex Crystals and you will too.

Don’t forget to head over and check out the Homemade Laundry Detergent I made with my Purex Crystals.

Green Earth Pan By Ozeri Review

Ozeri Review


I’ve been looking at the green cookware but just really didn’t believe it would work so I never bought any.  I was excited to find out I would be reviewing 10″ Green Earth Frying Pan, with Textured Ceramic Non-Stick Coating from Germany (100% PTFE and PFOA Free).  I was also nervous that I was going to have to give a negative review.

My pan arrived and the very next morning I put it to work.  I thought the best way to test it was cooking eggs.  As you can tell from the picture they did not stick at all.  The pan is big enough that I was able to fit 6 pieces of sausage in it.   I’ve used it several times since I’ve gotten it as it is now my go to pan for everything.  You can believe I will be adding more green cookware to my house.

I have larger pans that I use and they just do not cook evenly.  I had no problems with Ozeri.  My food was all done at the same time and cooked evenly.  It was also super easy to clean up.

Here’s a little bit about the company:

Utilizing GREBLON — a natural ceramic coating from Germany, the Green Earth Pan by Ozeri is one of the world’s first frying pans to achieve non-stick perfection while remaining absolutely free of PTFE, PFOA and other harmful chemicals. Conventional non-stick cookware is achieved through a coating of PTFE (PolyTetraFluoroEthylene), a synthetic substance that has waxy properties. At very high temperatures, PTFE begins to decompose and release fumes which are documented to be lethal to birds and small pets, and which can be harmful to humans. In addition, traditional pans incorporating PTFE are manufactured with the aid of PFOA (PerFluoroOctanoic Acid), which the EPA has classified as a ‘persistent pollutant of the environment’. With the Green Earth Pan’s GREBLON ceramic from Germany, even under high temperatures, no harmful toxic fumes are ever released into the environment. This is because the Green Earth Pan utilizes a 100% ceramic coating derived from nature – not from a laboratory. The Green Earth Pan’s ceramic coating is completely free of PTFE and PFOA. The Green Earth Pan’s natural ceramic coating is also far more durable and scratch-resistant than other non-stick surfaces. With better non-stick properties, the Green Earth Pan allows you to cook with as little as half the amount of oil normally used, and it makes cleaning a breeze. The Green Earth Pan by Ozeri is made of the highest quality anodized aluminum that allows for even cooking and fantastic browning without the risk of hot spots. It boasts a magnetized bottom for rapid heat transfer on induction stoves, and a heat resistant silicone coated handle. This version of the Green Earth Pan features a textured ceramic cooking surface. The elevations of the textured cooking surface create air pockets which distribute heat underneath food to enhance cooking performance. Your satisfaction is guaranteed. GREBLON ceramic made by Weilburger GmbH, Germany. Final assembly in China.


If you are thinking of buying green cookware I highly recommend the Green Earth Pan by Ozeri.

Mustachifier The Must Have Gift For Your Little Man



How cute is this?  Once I seen this I knew I had to request to review it.  As you all know I don’t have a little man but Tonya’s little man will be here any day now.  We will be adding pictures of Little Zeke with his Mustachifier as soon as we are able.  He will be using the “The Gentleman”.



The Mustachifier is a mustache pacifier  and is made from flexible teether material, with a natural orthodontic shape.  It has a silicone teat and is BPA free.  They even include a snap-on hygienic cap to keep it clean.   They have several options to choose and would make a great gift.  I can’t wait to see Zeke with his.  We will update the post and share it with you again once we have pictures of him.

Do you have a little man in your life?  What do you think of the Mustachifier?

Encourage Your Child’s Love of Reading with Reading Kingdom

Reading Kingdom

I was given the opportunity to try Reading Kingdom for free and we are loving it.  I am always looking for ways to entertain Mini that are educational as will as fun.  Now that we have started Homeschooling I search for things that educates us year round.

Reading Kingdom is an award-winning online program that teaches children 4-10 to read and write to a 3rd grade level. The program is based on the work of Dr. Marion Blank from Columbia University, one of the world’s top experts on reading and language development. It uses her patented and research based “6-SIM” (Six Skill Integrated Method) technique that yields incredible results.


Once I set up the account Mini went through a series of skill tests to see where she was in her reading level.  The test are simple such as type these letters and once she typed them, the word was pronounced and a picture was shown.  I love that they use typing, listening and seeing as a form of learning.  Not only will Mini work on her reading skills but she is working on her typing skills too.  The fact that this learning comes in the form of games and animated makes it less work and Mini is more willing to do it.

Reading Kindom

We will continue using Reading Kingdom this year with the rest of our school work, anything that makes learning fun get a gold star in my book.

Need More Focus?

Solomon & Samson

To say that I am easily distracted is an understatement.  If you look at my computer at any given time you will see 6-7 windows open and me doing something in each of them all at the same time.  To say I needed focus was also understatement.  I have my daily to do list and never get through it which means items get added to the next day everyday.

Solomon & Samson

I was given the opportunity to try I Need to Focus on Work which is a dietary supplement created by  Eliyahu and Yossi Shain, a master at special education and a mental health certified professional, that were operating a tutoring clinic for children with learning and behavioral challenges.  Who better to know what is needed to bring about change?



I Need to Focus on Work comes in a 5.3 oz container in a powder form.  It is recommended that you use 2 teaspoons for every 60 lbs of body weight and to use half that dosage the first 3 times you take it.  I would measure out my dosage and mix it with a bit of warm water to get it to dissolve and then mix with my beverage of choice.  It has a real earthy smell and taste to it but I found mixing it with orange juice helped to mask the taste.  Although it has not changed my habit of having a zillion windows open on my computer it has allowed me to stay on task longer.

Solomon & Samson

I was also sent the I Need to Focus In School for children which has the same recommended dosage but it comes in a cherry flavor.  I made the mistake of letting Mini see the product and with her aversion to certain food items trying this was a no go.  I passed it on to a friend to try with her child who has ADD.  She mixed her’s with her morning orange juice and her daughter was none the wiser.  She has been using it for about a week now and she has been getting good reports from school.  The biggest difference she noticed was during homework time.  Homework used amount to nothing but stress and is now more calm and they are actually getting through the homework easily now.


I would say that both products have done what they claim to do and even pass a kid test.


Take your Exercise and Healthy Diet to a New Level

Green Coffee Bean Extract Weight Loss Formula

After seeing Green Coffee Bean Extract talked about on TV by “that” Dr. I really wanted to try it.  The “Dr” had warned that their were a lot of fakes out there and to make sure what you bought had Chlorogenic Acids.   I put that thought on the back burner until I seen ResVitále Green Coffee Bean Extract and was given the opportunity to try it.

ResVitale Green Coffee Bean comes in a glass bottle and I received the bonus size that has 75 Veggie Capsules.  The directions say to take 1 veggie pill 30 minutes before your meal and can be taken twice a day.

I’ve noticed a difference in my hunger level and the amount of food it takes to fill me up.  This is huge since I am a gal that loves her food and tends not to know when to stop.  I will be adding updates to this post over the next month letting you know if it continues you to work.  ResVitále Green Coffee Bean Extract is available exclusively at GNC (General Nutrition Centers)

Please note that you should consult your doctor before taking any dietary supplements and that supplements should be combined with a healthy diet and exercise.

Sibu: Beauty Inside and Out

Each year as I grow wiser it seems my wiserness is starting to show.  There’s a little wiserness around my eyes and the corners of my mouth.  Some call these crows feet and laugh lines to me it’s just wiserness creeping up on me.  Now we are smack dab in the middle of winter and my skin seems to be so much drier this year than any other.

Sibu ProductsSweeping in like the superhero I’ve found it to be are a few products from Sibu Beauty.   Sibu Beauty is certified vegan and cruelty free.  Sibu is made from from the Himalayan sea buckthorn berry.   The Sea Buckthorn Berry are just packed with all kinds of goodness, providing you beauty inside and out.

Sibu products

Beauty on the inside starts with the cellular support omega-7 gelcaps.  These come in a small container containing 60 veggie softgels.  It has Omega 7 fatty acids and Sea buckthorn oil antioxidant.  it is suppose to help with damaged cells and a whole host of other things.  These are super easy to swallow and had no after taste.  Next up is the Sibu Seven Omega 7 Chocolates.  They contain 250mg of Omega 7.  I really thought these would be just bleh!  I was in for a huge surprise they are super yummy and made from the smoothest chocolate.  A definite win in my book.

Sibu Products

Beauty on the outside starts with a 3.5oz Cleansing Face and Body bar. It cleanses and conditions the skin.  It has a citrus smell and washes away clean, leaving your skin soft.  I really love this bar. Next on the list is an exfoliating scrub.  It comes in a 3.3fl oz tube.  It gently scrubs your skin.  It’s not too grainy as some scrubs are.  My face felt really clean and smooth.  I really starting to like these products.  Next we have the Hydrating Serum that comes in a 1fl oz bottle.  I can really tell a difference when I use this at night.  The next morning my face is smooth and my wiserness doesn’t seem to stand out as much. For the day they have a facial cream that also comes in a 1 fl oz bottle and works through out the day to keep your face smooth.  I’ve noticed that my skin is smoother and more radiant since using Sibu.  The best part is my skin no longer feels parched.  Rounding out our review is Sea Buckthorn seed oil.  This oil comes in a 10 ml dropper bottle and is used as a topical treatment.  Mini tends to have contact dermatitis every time you turn around so I tried the oil on her and it worked great.  This will definitely be in my medicine bag at all time.

I have really enjoyed trying all of the Sibu products.  My skin feels so smooth and soft and my wiserness is not as noticeable.  An A+ in my book.  You can find these and other products on the Sibu Beauty site.

Daddy Scrubs Review

I was excited to be able to let Hubby try out Daddy Scrubs.  It really would have been nice if we had these when Mini was born but we didn’t.  I love the idea behind these scrubs and was eager to see if they were as comfortable as they claimed to be.  So I requested the size I needed (please note if you need different sizes just let them know) and they showed up.  I wasn’t aware that you could order top and bottom in different sizes so the pants are a lot too big. LOL.

Daddy Scrubs

Daddy Scrubs are made of a quality material.  They are 65/35 Polly Cotton.  I have no idea what that mean but thought I would include it.  All I know is that they are great.  You can tell they will last a long time.  The back of the scrub top says I’m The Daddy and is just down right great.

Daddy Scrubs

The front pocket says Daddy.  Wondering if it’s a bragging thing?  Seems Daddy is on it everywhere.  You will want to order the top 1 to 2 sizes bigger than what your “Daddy” wears as they tend to run smaller.

Daddy Scrubs

The bottoms have a drawstring which semi helped Hubby to be able to try them out.  If only I would have asked sooner if I could order bottoms in a different size.  The legs are nice and roomy and I can totally see Hubby lounging in these all the time.  If you are looking for a great gift for the Daddy to be then make sure you visit Daddy Scrubs.

Hey Daddy Scrubs, how about adding some Mommy Gowns??
