Another review

I know my blog followers and readers read my blog for all the activities and things to do in the city we live in, however from time to time (maybe more often now), I will be posting about reviews on products I receive free from companies and websites. This post is about an awesome Box of goodies that I got free from Influenster. On the side of my blog there is a badge stating I am part of the Influenster Nation. You can be too if you want to be, leave a comment if you are interested or e-mail me. The box I got was filled with products to help pamper me and help me be a prepared mom on the go.
 The first product I want to mention is Neo-On-the-Go by Neosporin. I must be honest and admit I already carry this product with me and have it in my diaper bag for times when we are out and about and need to protect the kids' scrapes and cuts from getting infected. So the fact that I own some before getting some free says A LOT, since many know me to be very frugal and rarely pay full price for things. When I purchase something it is something worthwhile to have. One particular day at the park with my children, another child playing at the park got a scrap. The mom was trying to help her child calm down and the child asked  for a band-aid, the mom said they would have to go home to get one. I was prepared and not only had the band-aid but Neo-on-the-Go, I was #NeoReady. The child was happy and calmed down and went on playing. Weeks later I saw the mom and her children again and the mom mentioned that her child calls me a cool mom because I had a band-aid and special stuff to use.
The second product I want to mention is the Puffs with lotion to go. Having the compact tissues to go, now with lotion, helps me be able to #PassThePuffs to my children and anyone else in need. I keep them in my diaper bag to have ready. They now open on the top of the package rather than the middle (like other brands) and that makes it more accessible to get a tissue out when one is needed.
The third product I want to mention is the new Breyers Gelato Indulgences. This was not sent in the box a coupon to redeem at my store of choice and my flavor of choice. I got mine and my Smith's and the flavor I got was Vanilla Caramel. It has little curls of caramel on the top and caramel strips throughout the vanilla. I enjoy it so much and is my favorite frozen dessert now. So creamy when you put the spoon into your mouth, it's heaven. I highly recommend this for your next indulgent moments. #GelatoLove Here is my pinterest board on what I would use to eat my Gelato with and what I would do for a date night.
Product number five I want to mention is Shell Fuel Rewards network. You don't pay anything for this card, you get $0.03 off the price of gas everytime you use your card. New members are getting $0.25 off the gallon price of gas when they sign up and register their card. I used my card just last night and the cost of the gallon of gas went from $3.91 to $3.66 and I saved $3.25 on my total cost to fill my van. Signing up is free and using the card is free, you can connect your Mastercard to the rewards card and purchases made on your Mastercard will help you earn fuel points. It is a rewards card like a grocery store or restaurant rewards card so it is free. #FuelRewards Here is the link to sign up for your own rewards card.;jsessionid=JUfBTcuT7irM5cxAH8d9bg__.node10
The sixth item I am going to mention is the Ivory bar of Soap that I got. I was surprised to get it since I don't use a bar of soap when I'm cleaning, but then I got onto pinterest and saw why. The Ivory soap is gentle to use to clean with, but it can also be used to do fun activities with your children.The most popular is the soap in the microwave science experiment. The results are fun to see. Here is my pinterest board on the many uses and ideas others had for a bar of Ivory Soap   
The seventh and final product (these were listed only as I thought of them,not as favorite to least or anything like that) is Avon Anew Reversalist Express Wrinkle Smoother. I am not one to use many beauty products because I just run out of  time when getting ready and I also know I have sensitive skin. I did try this product and I saw some results, however as the day went on my face started itching where I had applied the product. My fave did not turn red, it just was not something I wanted to have happen. I think if you have normal skin it would work great for you. 

Been Gone, need to do a review

This is not one of my typical list of activities posts. This is another review of a product that I got free to sample and share thanks to What I received was Coppertone ClearySheer Sunscreen. In my kit I got coupons, a full sized bottle, two travel sized spray on bottles, and two travel sized lotion bottles. This bzzkit (buzz) came just in time for us to use for my children and their outdoor field trips. My oldest took one of the travel sized spray bottles with her to a baseball game field trip and was covered and protected from the sun. It was so easy for her to use and have to reapply without any help. My son then had a park day field trip and needed sunscreen for that, he took the other travel sized spray on bottle. He was not as diligent in reapplying, but he did have some on before leaving for school (which was fine since the smell of it was better than other brands sunscreen). My daughter also needed it for a field trip for an outdooor museum, she again used her container and she was happy to use it since it was easy to put on and didn't smell bad. I used the full sized lotion of Coppertone ClearlySheer sunscreen when I took my younger children to the park. I was impressed how easily it went on and there was no messy feel and the scent surprised me the most. While my kids were playing at the park there are water features and I was concerned the sunscreen would streak or get into their eyes while running through the water, it didn't happen. No sunscreen in the eyes with lotion sunscreen makes me a fan. Another thing I want to mention is usually after wearing sunscreen immediately when we get home showers are needed to rinse it off because most sunscreens are so heavy, Coppertone ClearlySheer is not heavy at all. I didn't notice it on me or feel the urgency to rinse off like I do with other brands. I recommend Coppertone ClearlySheer Sunscreen to use it smells good, feels good, and works well to protect you and your family's skin against the rays sun.
