Thanks Influenster for letting me try EBoost!

*Disclaimer: I received EBoost Natural Energy Booster through Influenster as a complimentary sample item. I am not being paid to review this product.*

I have tried several energy boosting supplements before and couldn't find anything that worked for me. And most of the products gave me the jitters. Thanks to Influenster and EBOOST I was able to sample this product.

EBOOST is a natural energy booster  full of green tea, vitamins, and other nutrients. The product I tried was the Orange Natural Energy Booster.  EBOOST comes in an easy to mix powder form. The flavor was mild and not too harsh. It tasted great and reminded me of the old drink Tang!

I like the natural aspects of this product! I was able to get a natural boost of energy without any feelings of rush or crash. I love that the company is right in stating, "EBOOST is a boost that does more.  It’s a mood boost, focus boost, immunity boost, natural boost, a no-crash boost" ( They couldn't be more right! 

It is hard to find products that actually does what the company states. For me, it's a no brainer. I will be buying their products from now on! 

Check them out on Facebook or their website today and try the product out for yourself!

CleanWell Natural Hand Sanitizer Wipes

*Disclaimer: I received Clean Well Hand Sanitizer Wipes through Influenster as a complimentary sample item. I am not being paid to review this product.*

I have heard of the CleanWell brand before, but I had not been familiar with their line of products until I received a sample of their hand sanitizing wipes in the mail through my Naturals Voxbox 2012 from Influenster. I liked the product from the start! The wipes did not leave a sticky residue, and their convenient sizes make it easy to stash several in your purse or diaper bag without weighing them down. A GO TO item for busy moms!!!

CleanWell is a company that focuses on their products for a safer way to clean! Here is a quote from their Principles Page retrieved from 

We believe in safely eliminating harmful germs.

We believe in the power of nature.

We believe in a Better Way to CleanTM.

This makes my heart happy! Not only for my family because we have a line of products we can trust, but because these products are healthy for our environment too!!

GeoDeo, Thanks Influenster!!

Disclaimer: Each product received in the Influenster Naturals VoxBox was completely free for product testing and reviewing. I am not being paid to write try the products and write my review.

I was very excited to receive my 2012 Naturals VoxBox from Influenster! It came with The Original Dish Drying Mat, GeoDeo Natural deodorant Plus Detox Complex- Island Scented, Lypsyl Intense Protection LypMoisturizer, EBOOST, Clean Well Individual Hand Sanitizer Wipes, Nectresse, and Shea Moisture Baby Eczema Bar Soap!

Geodeo was the first item that I pulled out of my box and I was very excited to try it. For years, I have not been able to find a deodorant that was right for me. It was AWESOME! I sweated much less, the smell was long lasting, and it has 24-hour protection!

Being a mom of three, I don’t get the chance to put me first. I wake up with the boys and take care of them so it may be hours before I realize I haven’t even taken care of ME. This deodorant helped me feel better when I forgot to put some on because of its long lasting protection. The deodorant felt so smooth and never left any kind of residue.

Most amazing perk of this product—it’s 97% Natural!!! The other 3% of their product is to help preserve the effectiveness of the deodorant. What I loved learning about this product is that they do not test on animals, there is 50% less emissions omitted and energy consumed in the making of this deodorant, no harmful aluminums, sulfates, parabens, petrochemicals, dyes, phthalates ( And it’s allergen-free so it is great for everyone!

I learned more about the Detox Complex after looking through their site and I was amazed! I learned that deodorant products contain aluminum which can stay in your bloodstream for up to 15 days. Aluminum is a neurotoxin that is shown to increase a person’s chances of developing Alzheimer’s by up to 60%. The six ingredients in their Detox Complex are volcanic minerals, Icelandic algae, enzymes, bamboo, aloe and vitamin E. These ingredients help clean your body of toxins! Looking at those numbers, I knew it was time to make a permanent switch to GeoDeo!!

Their deodorant is also offered in Ocean Scented and Unscented!

LypSyl Intense Protection LypMositurizer

*Disclaimer: I received this product complimentary to try from *

I received the LypSyl Moisturizer from the 2012 Naturals VoxBox from Influenster in the mail a few weeks ago! Among the several products was the moisturizer and I fell in love with it!! It is made with shea butter which is something that I started enjoying years ago through lotions. I believe this is the first time I have ever experienced it in a lip balm.

My lips feel amazing, so soft, smooth, and my husband even loves the feel too. Lypsyl also offers a great smell to the lip balm. And the design is too adorable!

Like them on Facebook--LypSyl lipbalm and try them out for yourself!

Campbell's Select Harvest

Tonight’s review is slightly random so bear with me!

There have been quite a few weeks of rain where I live and I have been craving soup and sandwiches. I usually enjoy those better during the cold months, on the other hand, rainy days are a good excuse too! I just could not help myself. Not sure if I am the only crazy person to enjoy hot soup during hot, muggy weather, however it is AWESOME!

I visited my local grocery store today and found my favorite type of soup (New England Clam Chowder). I looked around to see what kind of brand mood I was in today. I came across Campbell’s Select Harvest 100% Natural New England Clam Chowder. 

I have been trying to live a healthier lifestyle but keep falling short. I kick myself in the rear a lot because I know that I can do much better. So why not try something new since it was right there in front of me? I have been disappointed before with items that prove to be healthy and great tasting.

I gave in and bought this new soup and I was NOT DISAPPOINTED‼ Campbell’s continuously has awesome tasting products but this one blew me away. It had all the flavor (and then some) of some of the best homemade clam chowders I have ever indulged myself in. It was healthy, easy on my budget, and packed with flavor.

And I love how honest they are on the label of ingredients:
             “REAL INGREDIENTS ARE INGREDIENTS YOU UNDERSTAND. IN CASE YOU DIDN’T KNOW: Maltodextrin is a carbohydrate that comes from potato or corn starch.”   

This made my day! Not too many companies address this issue on their food products.

Thanks Campbell’s for creating this outrageously, insanely good soup! If you are skeptical, please visit their website at and investigate for yourself. Doesn't take much undercover work to discover the goodness.

Schick Hydro Silk Razor

It's been a week or so since I did my first and most recent review. I decided to write today's review on a free product that came in the mail (I love getting free samples, especially full sized ones!). Today, I received the Schick Hydro Silk Razor! I believe I received this from

For years, I always used my husbands razor because his always worked better than any female razor that I have ever used. Then I introduced myself to the Schick Hydro Silk Razor and fell in love!!

It never leaves and nicks or cuts on my legs, I always, have silky legs, and NO LEFT OVER hair! If you are like me, have experienced hair on your legs after shaving (especially around your knees), it is a real big aggravation!

The Schick Hydro Silk Razor gets the hard spots and I think this razor is absolutely AMAZING! I don't have to use my husbands razor anymore and that makes us both happy :)

What shaving products have you used in the past that you have fallen in love with?

Kitchen Aid Artisan Mixer

I am a stay-at-home mom to three wonderful boys! My two oldest just recently started back school so it is just me and my youngest son during the day. With extra time on my hands, and being a host to a local moms group, I wanted to blog about the products I rave about as well as some that I could do without. 

There are several moms out there just like me, or even working moms, who could use some insight before purchasing new products. This product review blog will do just that!

For my first blog, I would like to talk about my KitchenAid Artisan 4 1/2 quart Stand Mixer. Growing up I always loved my grandmother's KitchenAid Tilt-Head Stand Mixer and helping her bake with it! Because of her, I have a passion for baking, even though sometimes, the end result isn't always pretty! Being the mother of a family of 5, we are always on a strict budget and I was never able to purchase the mixer I wanted for full price. 

I was on one evening trying to win a netbook. With my luck, I placed one bid and won the laptop. But to my surprise a few weeks later, they were out of stock so I had to choose a replacement item. Low and behold, I was able to choose my KitchenAid Artisan Tilt-Head Stand Mixer!!! For the price of one bid ($0.60) and the total price before shipping, $5.16 on a brand new mixer of my dreams!

My mixer finally arrived right before Christmas 2011 and I started using it right away! The mixer came standard packaging with an Empire Red Tilt-Heat Stand Mixer, flat beater, stainless steel wire whisk, dough attachment, pouring shield , and the 4 1/2-quart stainless steel bowl. It is now August 2012, and I have used my mixer at least 100 times if not more! As I stated before, I love to bake! I make all of my children's and family birthday cakes, cookies, pies, mufffins, and so much more! There are other things to make with the mixer as well. I love using KitchenAid's recipe for mashed potatoes which can be found here: Just scroll down until you find the recipe. They are super delicious!!!

I do not really have any complaints about my KitchenAid Artisan 4 1/2 quart stand mixer other than the fact that I wish the attachments all come in the same color. I would have loved to receive the burnished flat beater and burnished dough attachment to fit in with my stainless steel wire whisk. The stand mixers that KitchenAid has to offer also offer room for more recipes and ways to cook. You can make pasta, ground meat, and so much more!

 I rate this product a 9 out of 10 (mostly because I would like to see more stainless steel attachments come with the standard products). Sometimes, the attachments wear and the white coating disintegrates with common use.

Have you used a KitchenAid stand mixer before or are looking to purchase one in the future?

Here are some pictures of the desserts that I have made using my KitchenAid Artisan Stand Mixer. Can you tell we have sweet tooths around here?

Chocolate Chip Cookie Pops with Chocolate Icing
Elf Cupcakes

Tucker's 6th Birthday Cake. I added Hot Wheels to the top! I was also able to make his fondant icing with my mixer using the dough attachment.
