Lancome Paris DreamTone Customized Skin Tone Correcting Serum Review

Thursday, November 21, 2013

DISCLOSURE:  I received a free bottle of Lancome DreamTone from SheSpeaks to facilitate this review.  My opinions are my own.

As I've gotten older, I've started paying more attention to my skin.  I've started to notice the the little lines, skin imperfections, uneven skin tone and dark spots.  I've started to have a regular skincare routine that I do twice a day.  A part of that routine includes a dark spot corrector.

Even though I'm in my 30s, I still get blemishes every now and then.  They take forever to go away and eventually leave a dark spot on my skin.  I've tried a couple dark spot correctors, but haven't noticed much of a difference in my skin.

I recently had the opportunity to try Lancome DreamTone, a customized skin tone correcting serum.  It visibly corrects dark spots, uneven skin tone, and color imperfections, like sallowness, redness and acne/blemish marks.  It immediately gives you glowing skin and within a week, 70% of women who've tried it noticed a more even skin tone.  After four weeks use, the appearance of dark spots were reduced and after 8 weeks, 78% of women saw a reduction in color imperfections.

Airborne Immune Support Supplement

Tuesday, November 19, 2013

DISCLOSURE:  I received a free bottle of Airborne Gummies from Smiley360 to try and review.  My opinions are my own.

Cold season is upon us.  With a job and four kids to take care of, I can't afford to get sick.  It's nice to know that in addition to eating right, drinking plenty of water, getting enough sleep and using proper hygiene, there are products available to help support your immune system.

I recently had the opportunity to try Airborne Immune Support Supplements.  It's packed with a unique blend of vitamins, minerals, herbs and a blast of Vitamin C.  It's available in several forms and flavors, including effervescent tablets, gummies, chewable tablets, and lozenges.  I had the chance to try the Airborne Gummies in Assorted Fruit Flavors.

Truvia Brunch Party #SweetSwitch #TruFanBrunch

Sunday, November 10, 2013

DISCLOSURE: I was sent a free kit of Truvia products from Crowdtap to host a party and try Truvia.  My opinions are my own.

If you've been following this blog for awhile, then you know that I'm not really a fan of Truvia in my coffee.  There's just something about it that isn't very palatable for me.  BUT, I've never tried baking with Truvia (or any other sweetener, other than sugar).  So, when I was given the chance to host a brunch party and use Truvia to bake up some breakfast treats, I decided to give it a go.

My Dad's birthday was coming up and my sister recently got engaged.  So, there were two perfect reasons to get friends and family together.

The party kit was pretty nice.  The company was very generous! It included:
  • 1 package of Truvía Baking Blend
  • 2 40-count packages of Truvía packets
  • 2 80- count packages of Truvía packets
  • 2 packages of Truvía spoonable
  • Folgers Gourmet Selections Vanilla Biscotti Ground Coffee
  • Smucker’s Sugar Free Strawberry Preserves with Truvía®
  • 1 Truvía Brand “I love you when you’re not cranky” mug
  • Truvía brand apron
  • Truvia brand wooden spoon
  • 1 Brunch Party Insert 
Since, most of my guests weren't going to be free until the afternoon/evening, my brunch was held around dinner time.  But, that was cool.  Who doesn't like breakfast at dinner?

Bright Starts Up, Up & Away Plug In Sway & Swing Review

Saturday, November 2, 2013

DISCLOSURE: I received a free Bright Starts Up, Up & Away Plug In Sway & Swing to try and review.  My opinions are my own.

All my babies loved being in a swing.  Baby #4 is no exception.  So, I was excited to get a chance to try the Bright Starts Up, Up & Away Plug In Sway & Swing.  We never had anything like this for my other children and I thought this would be really great to have in the house.

The Up, Up & Away Plug In Sway & Swing is a full size swing that can swing back and forth or sway side to side.  The seat can face left, center or right.  It features six speeds and a 30, 45 and 60-minute timer.  It plays 20 minutes of 8 melodies and 3 nature sounds and also includes a mobile with two playtime toys.  The swing features a five point harness and non-slip feet for safety.  The swing can either run on 4 D batteries or can be powered by AC adapter.  It's recommended for babies weighing up to 25 lbs and can be used from birth.
