EBOOST Natural Energy Boosters Review

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

When my husband and I are very tired and need some energy, we like to drink energy drinks to help stay awake. We often drink 5Hr Energy energy drinks, but I'm always looking for new things to try so I tried EBOOST Natural Energy Boosters. It dose a great job providing energy, however I don't like the taste of of this product. It tastes strange and you can't taste the flavor of the fruit. This product gives you energy quick but doesn't taste good.

Beautiful A. M. Moisturizer and P. M. Revitalizer – for Women Review

I used to use  Burt Bees products but they are so expansive! So when this company called Trusted Health Care Products asked  me to review their product called Beautiful, I was very interested! They gave me two products one to use for morning and evening.What I like about this product it that I only have to use this product alone, because it takes place of all other washing soaps and creams that you use on your face!

A. M. Ingredients: 100% Pure Botanical oils of almond, orange, lemon, avocado and olive.

P. M. Ingredients: 100% Pure Botanical oils of almond, orange, lemon, evening primrose and apricot.

 Ingredient Properties and Benefits:
Almond – To moisturize, soothe and soften skin, relieve itching from dry skin and to give complexion appearance of improvement and glow.

Orange – Cleanses the skin through natural anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties to help fight acne and restore smooth appearance to skin.

Lemon – Natural cleanser, preventative for wrinkling and aging. Significantly increases the anti-oxidative potential of the skin bio surface (to help stop damage to the skin).

Avocado – Significantly increases the soluble collagen content in the skin to enrich dry, damaged, chapped or wounded skin.
Olive – Cleanser and moisturizer. Has shown preventative effects for formation of skin cancer and tumors.

Evening Primrose – The nutrients in Evening Primrose Oil are essential for cell structure and improve the elasticity of the skin. There is evidence that it can help reduce wrinkles and even help repair stretch marks.

Apricot Oil – Apricot Oil is light and gently moisturizes skin. Containing vitamins A and E which soothes the skin and slows signs of aging as well as firming and toning.

 I began using this product and I love it! When I first began using this product my face broke out in a few pimples, from what I read this is normal. It dose this because the botanical oils

in Beautiful gently and naturally remove toxins and build up that have accumulated over time from the use of chemical-laden skincare products and cosmetics. These botanical ingredients also help remove the cause behind excessive oil production. If a breakout does occur, this is suppose to be good sign, as your skin will be ridding itself of toxins that have built up over time.
  It has a wonderful smell and has made my skin so soft and beautiful! But after a few days the pimples went away and left  me with soft beautiful skin .

This company also sales this product for men its called: You’re the Man

“The manufacturer is willing to offer my readers one FREE bottle. They want readers to try out Beautiful A.M. Moisturizer (for women) or You’re the Man A.M. Moisturizer (for men) and agreed to send one bottle FREE if our readers would pay a minimal shipping and handling charge.

Children’s Mucinex Review

Cold season is here and with the cold comes colds! My daughter had a cold two weeks ago and I gave her Children’s Mucinex, she said she didn't like the flavor. But her mucus was gone from her body in two days and the cough was gone on the third day! But it seem that the medicine takes 30 minutes to an hour before it starts to work.

Radio Flyer® Ziggle Review

I had a sleep over with my sisters and sister-in -law and their children and they had a blast! The children had so much fun playing with the Ziggle! The only problem is that it's so cold and rainy in MI that the children have not had chance to play with the Ziggle outside. The toy helps children exercise because they are constantly moving their body left and right. It's  not too big so it does, take up much room in a car, if you want to travel with it.
Its very easy to assembly. My husband and daughters put it together in 20 minutes. My children love the Ziggle so much that, I will buy another one so that they each have their own to enjoy..

Truvía® Natural Sweetener Review

What is Truvia?

Truvía® Natural Sweetener is made from the  stevia plant whicrom the sweet leaf of the stevia plant, native to South Amercia. Dried stevia leaves are steeped in water, similar to making tea. This unlocks the best tasting part of the leaf which is then purified to provide a calorie-free sweet taste. Natural flavors compliment the clean sweet taste of Truvia sweetener. Eryhritol is a natural sweetener. Produced by a natural process, and is also found in fruits like grapes and pears.
More Information
" Truvía® natural sweetener is the first natural, great-tasting, zero-calorie sweetener born from the leaves of the stevia plant.

  One packet of Truvía® natural sweetener provides the same sweetness as two teaspoons of sugar. Truvía® natural sweetener is refreshingly uncomplicated.  Add it to coffee and tea.  Sprinkle it on fruit and cereal. Truvía® natural sweetener is a great alternative for people with diabetes. It is also kosher certified.


  • Great naturally calorie free alternative
  • Don't have to use as much to sweeten
  • Looks like sugar
  • Packaging is filled with truvia
  • Sample pack had a coupon
  • All natural from Stevia Leaves, I can read the ingredients of this product
  • No after taste
 My opinion, is that while it takes very little Truvia to sweeten your tea or food it leaves a after taste in your mouth. While it dose taste good in cereal it dose not taste good in tea or smoothies, but it dose taste better than Sweet and low. I believe that it would be great for baking! I will try baking with it and let you know. 

Have you tried  Truvia? What do you think of it?

Knowing Vera (Chance for Love) by Rachelle Ayala Review

This book doesn't have a dull moment from start to finish! I finished reading it in one sitting! If you like  romantic suspense stories then this book is for you! I just loved the way Vere looks at things and her determination. Zach is totally swoon-worthy and a great hero who will take your heart. He lost his leg in an accident trying to save a friend is so great at dealing with it. Every woman should have a Zach in their life!. Things are hot between these two, despite Vera's questions and hesitations.  I felt bad for Vera, since she's had a hard time of things and recent events make her life even harder. She can't fully give her heart to Zach until she knows the truth about her past and can lay to rest some family secrets.

  I thought Vera's race for the truth was entertaining. I'll  look forward to Rachelle's next book. This book was really interesting!

Saturday, October 19, 2013 Debit Card Review

I was given a debit card from to review and I used it to buy products from Dollar Tree, for my reward store,which I have for my children to help them do better in home school. The card worked like a charm! I had no problems. It was just like using a regular credit or debit card.

Help Stop Bullying!

Many children have experienced bullying and it is important to teach our children to stand up for their self. We should teach our children that it’s ok to say no to something that they don't like. We should help them understand that they have rights as a person, no matter how small a person they are. We should teach our children to not be afraid of others just because that person is bigger.
  A great way to teach children this is, through role play. What I do with my children is practice different behaviors that are undesirable and teach them the correct way to deal with the problem. This technique really works, and can be used any time you want your child to behave in a certain manner. For example, before you go to shopping, you can have your children prentice the correct way to act in the store, that they will know what it is expected of them. Here is a video about bulling that is really cute!
