Cassandra's Review-  I love to use these not only in my washer but also by filling up little satchels and placing them in drawers and spots around my home where the kids of course can not get to them as they smell wonderful and relaxing.  I would love to try the two other scents. As far as adding these crystals to my laundry they work really well at refreshing clothes even when a cheaper detergent is used.  The only downside is that my water pressure does not always break down the granules and so I have to either reduce the amount used or put them lightly right where the water flows in.

The giveaway is open to everyone and ends 11/11/2014.Please note you will be receiving a coupon that will expire 11/30/2014


I was provided a  complimentary sample of this product by Purex.

Cassandra's review- The product is super simple to instal and has awesome suction locks to secure safety.  I know some of  my younger kids like to pull on the towel because they can not reach way up yet and this kind of worried me thinking it would fall on them, but when installed properly they are completely safe,  This fits most sized towel and can be put into other rooms as needed.  One of the great ways to use this is to attach it to the kitchen wall and attach my measuring cups and spoons to it for quick use.

Vivant Skin Care is from the scientist who made skin look healthier...James E. Fulton M.D. PhD, the researcher, cosmetic surgeon and dermatologist who developed vitamin A acid, later known as Retin A.

The Benefits of Vivant Skin Care Mandelic 3-in-1 Wash:

This powerful yet gentle antioxidant wash has Mandelic derived from almonds, green tea extract, grape seed, kiwi fruit and honey extracts.  Mandelic is ideal for adult acne because of it's anti-bacterial, anti-viral and anti-fungal properties. On blotchy skin it "lifts" skin discolorations and dark spots, while also having the beneficial side effect of rejuvenating fine lines by helping to generate new collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid.

A powerful yet gentler form of Alpha Hydroxy Acid, Mandelic is also ideal for treating sensitive Black, Hispanic, and Asian skin that becomes irritated by harsh benzoyl peroxide products.

Helps ingrown hairs and can also be used as a shampoo on scalp to control dandruff and acne.

Cassandra's Review-  One of my older teens has a bad dandruff problem that no matter what I try nothing can keep away.  This is the first product that worked and fast.  And as it also can be used on your face it was able to help with his breakouts as well.  I like that it has no  harsh smell and did not irritate the body.  I also tried this while shaving my legs and it makes a noticeably soft difference. This is the perfect holiday gift and I would love to review more of this companies products, as would my older teens.

Cassandra's Review- This is one of those unique product one has to try atleast once.  I had originally thought that you take this capsule sleep and wake up skinner each day.  OK so no that does not happen but if taken with the proper diet and exercise you can see a good amount of results.  As everyone has a different body system, I would recommend drinking a lot of water while taking and perhaps consulting a doctor before you start in case it is not something your can tolerate.  If you have a metabolism problem or one that is right on track I would also not take this as it might throw you off a bit.  I had no ill side effects, it does have a slight aftertaste if not taken with enough fluids.

Earths Design Forskolin Review + Giveaway

Famous TV Dr recently called Forskolin "Lightning in a bottle" and a Belly Blasting Supplement that ignites the body's metabolism and melts belly fat. On his show, Weight Loss Expert Lisa Lynn said it helped her clients double their weight loss. One of her clients lost 20lbs in 4 months while taking Forskolin. Lisa recommends you take at least 125mg and to make sure you get a good quality brand.

Forskolin is a root extract from a herbal plant in the Mint and Lavender family. Researchers found that forskolin can help promote the breakdown of stored fats in animal and human fat cells and aid losing weight. It may also release fatty acids from adipose tissue, which results in increased thermogenesis, resulting in loss of body fat and, theoretically, increased lean body mass.

Pure Forskolin is Manufactured in a GMP Certified Organic Facility and is Third Party tested for Purity and Potency

Pure Forskolin is standardized to 20% and is 250mg per serving

Forskolin works Great in Combination with Earths Design Pure Garcinia Cambogia!

Safety Information
CAUTION: Please consult with your healthcare provider before using this product if you are pregnant, breastfeeding or currently taking any prescription medications. Store in a cool, dry place. KEEP OUT OF REACH OF CHILDREN

Coleus Forskohlii Extract 250mg

WEIGHT LOSS DOSAGE: As a dietary supplement, adults take 2 capsules daily with an 8oz glass of water 20-30 minutes before meals.

Cassandra's review -  I have never heard of or tried Forskolin  before this review. I may have tried ingredients similar  but not this actual product.   I am so happy to have tried the product by the Earths Design company, because I knew right off the bat that I was going to get a good high quality product.  The capsules are not hard for me to swallow, but I think if you can not swallow a capsule this is probably something to pass on.  I did not have any bad reactions and even though I did not have a huge weight loss breakthrough. I think that with a healthy diet and better exercise practices my body would have given a better outcome.

   marine omega-3

Supports normal vision, heart health, positive mood,
   and immunity*

 Sustainably sourced

Non-GMO and hexane free

Certified by the America Vegetarian Association

Nordic Naturals Algae Omega is the ideal vegetarian alternative to fish oil. Made from microalgae, it offers a plant-based source of beneficial marine omega-3s EPA and DHA without the use of fish. While most algae oils are short on EPA, Algae Omega's unique combination of EPA and DHA is a pure, safe, and effective source of both of these essential fatty acids.

Two soft gels, with food, or as directed by your healthcare professional or pharmacist.

Baby’s DHA Vegetarian

Great for babies 6 months or older

100% vegetarian source of marine omega-3s

Measured dropper for easy addition to formula or food

Supports healthy brain, vision, and nervous
   system function*

Non-GMO and hexane free

Body Weight Dose
5–10 lb 0.5 mL
11–20 lb 1.0 mL
21–25 lb 1.5 mL
26–35 lb 2.0 mL

Cassandra's review- The  Algae  Omega will give you noticeable results within 3 weeks of using. It did not hurt my stomach or cause any gas or nausea.  The soft gels are easier to swallow and only leave a slight aftertaste.   The Baby's DHA  is formulated for babies but can be taken by adults who can not tolerate a higher level of Omega-3. Another great aspect of the DHA is that is a liquid form and I know some adults that can not tolerate a pill.  It does however not taste very good (yes I tried it first) and my baby did try to spit it out, however at this age they usually do try to spit most stuff out.

Cassandra's Review-  This software was really hard for me to figure out.  I guess if you're heavily into downloading music this would be so much easier.   I thought that you use this to actually download music from the internet.  Not with this does.  It is actually a great music and file organizer.  You do have to download it to your PC and I know alot of people do not feel comfortable doing that straight from the internet, especially with an unknown brand.  I had no problems with the whole process and it was super easy to remove from my PC.
