Aveeno Clear Complexion

Benefits There is a mild clean scent here with a little going a long way. It works very well
Drawbacks Zero drawbacks for this at least for me
Details I am 34 years old with sensitive/acne-prone skin. I decided my skin can be in better shape. I decided it was time to start using facial products. I went all-out for Aveeno's line: Clear Complexion (foaming cleanser, daily moisturizer, and correcting treatment). I have been using these products for a 3 months now and am experiencing an all-around difference! These products are extremely gentle and they products smell and feel clean.Never having a professional facial before it seems like how one would feel.These products last a little pump or squirt goes a long way. My face is beginning to clear-up and my pores are starting to get smaller so they will not get acne as easily. I also noticed benifits for the rest of my body using it as an all over scrub.
Conclusions I love these products

Price Very reasonable plan on stocking up on these produ…

Noxicare. Natural Pain Relief

I was given the chance to try out Noxicare , a natural pain reliever. Personally I thought this was great as a fuller figured woman with sensitive skin I often get backaches but don't want to break out or smell like I'm using something for pain relief.

   I get the cream in the mail and take a look at the ingredients. Some of them like willow bark I know the healing properties of others I'm not sure of. One of the best features of this product is there are only 7 ingredients and you can pronounce the names easily. Of course there are some sets of people like those who are pregnant , nursing or underage who should not use this due to the fact it is a medical cream.

   Now I open up the bottle and take off the foil safety cap. I take a sniff , no smell at all and a creamy white color. I try a dab on my wrist to feel the texture , rubbing it in to see how it feels.The cream is just the right texture not to heavy but just heavy enough to not leak out of the tube on accident l…

Planters Berry Burst

Decided today was the perfect day to open the second jar of the energy mix peanut butter. This type Berry Burst and made some slices of French bread covered with this for a quick morning pick me up after a long night.

   On looking at the ingredients other than the knowing it was crunchy peanut butter , I saw the berry that was in this was dried cranberry. I thought this was rather strange as my first thought would have been blueberries for the health benefits they have.

  So I put about a teaspoon and a half each on three slices of bread and grab a glass of ice water. I take my food into my room to try and take my morning medicine. Slowly taking a bite as I am thinking its a strange combination , I can taste the sweetness of the berry combining with the stickiness of the peanut butter. I then drink some of my water and think about how it tastes between bites.

  For the price finding it at $2.00 a jar at Walmart it makes it around 20cents a serving to fix. The taste is not too overp…

My first Giveaway

a Rafflecopter giveaway Am hoping to get a good amount of entries in this. This is a fairly simple giveaway lasting a week Thanks

Passion Mango Pepsi

I must say on seeing that Pepsi had out Mango flavored diet soda I had to get a bottle to try. Now I semi like the Cherry Flavor they have out and know they have truly exotic flavors they sell overseas.

  So I grab a bottle of this as I was in the store picking up med refills and needed something to drink while waiting to pick up my 9 year old up from school. 

    I slowly take a sip and think to myself well this is different on tasting the flavor. I drink some more and even though I like fruity drinks I can tell that this is something I don't care for so I stopped drinking it.

   I finally end up giving the soda to my 9 year old when I picked her up and she seemed to really like it. My final thoughts is diet fruity cola drinks are something I'll take a pass on in the future.

Planters Nutrition Mix

I just got from a Klout perk 3 types of Planters Nutrition Energy mix.I opened up the banana granola nut mix and took a big sniff. It smelled just like banana nut bread.

   So I took out a spoonful and had my youngest whom I had picked up from school try it. She loved it and wanted more. I showed the types to my other 3 kids and they all liked them. I plan on finishing the one jar before opening the other 2 though I know it will be very fast as everyone loves peanut butter and it being flavored makes it even better.I bet they will taste just as good/

  Not only does it taste good but very health with all natural ingredients. With the fact it is not high in sugar and has a good amount of protein among vitamins and minerals it makes it a great choice for a healthy snack , pick me up or a fast meal on the run.

Purina Cat Treats

With me having multiple cats it is extremely important to have treats they all enjoy. Their favorite is getting Frisky treats. As can be seen for just a few treats 3 of my cats are surrounding my hand.

    The flavor they went wild over today was part of the Party Mix the Wild West mix. I had to be very careful giving them this treat as not to get my hand nipped as they all wanted a treat at the same time.

   One of the best of this it is very affordable to buy for those who want a treat their pet will love.Even having an easily visible use by date at the bottom.Beyond the fact they are easy to find in many locations with a huge range of flavors perfect for even the finickiest feline you may own.And feeding instructions along with ingredient list is another good thing one can easily see.

Tips for Entering Giveaways

Now at first thought one would think entering a giveaway is so easy that tips are not really needed. Not so as there are many types of giveaways be it from a Fan Page or from the maker of the product itself.

   Most important thing you need to do is write down what you enter and important information like how long it runs and who is running it. Many times you have a limited time to get back to someone before losing your prize. You do not want this to happen because you skipped checking your email for a day, it ended up in spam or you deleted it on accident. I know this as I lost an email for a contest I won that way.

   Next on entering make sure it is a real giveaway. There are some out there there are just scams to either get your information or will virus your computer.This goes along with the writing down of what you entered as not everything you get in your email that says winner is real, the majority of it being some scam saying you won some huge amount of cash if you only sen…

Helping A family Adopt

This is a good place to help

Purina Cat /Kit & Kaboodle

I must say I love this type of food not only for the decent price but the fact my household of cats and kittens love this brand of food. I have a decent amount of furry babies both kittens and adults.The variety of flavors ensures none of them get bored.
   At current time my household goes through 4 bags of the biggest size the 16 pound bag a month in feeding and taking care of the animals in my cat sanctuary. As my neighborhood knows me and my family rescue cats and more so kittens having something affordable that fills up my furry babies without being hugely expensive.
  At current time I have 5 adult cats ranging from ages 5 years to 1 year. My kittens are all around the 2-4 month age and have 7 of them as got 2 more today from a family trying to find homes for kittens at the local Walmart.

I would have to say is my favorite site to get deals on things for my family. I have gotten a few things from them a few free and others that I have bought like jewelry and makeup so far.

    I must say their sale prices are very good and the quality of the products are great.I love the Elf makeup kit I got. I know my girls will love the heart pendants and the few other things are lovely. The free crazy straw glasses too a minute to get together but my 15 year old quickly snatched that up and the mystery stainless steel ring I snagged for 1.99 that did not fit my husband.

 And the fact they give you the tracking for each package is perfect so you know where each item is shipped from and when to expect it. I think from now on this will be one of my first sites to go to for things for gifts for my family and friends
