..::Review + Giveaway::.. Dial Baby Body + Hair Wash & Dial Kids Foaming Hand Wash


I'm so excited to be able to try out the new Dial products for my son and their new baby body + hair wash for my daughter!

I received one product for each, so here they are!  The first is the Dial Baby Body + Hair Wash.  The second is the Dial Kids Foaming Hand Wash.


First, I'd like to write a little bit about the Dial Baby.  It works incredibly good, but I'm not sure that I like it to be fragrance-free.  It's really a well-made, quality formula and I'm sure the fragrance-free would work good in certain situations.  I usually choose my baby's wash to be scented.



The top flips open, and it's practically a mess-free top.


The second product is the Dial Kids Foaming Hand Wash.  This is scented in 'Watery Melon'.



The hand wash uses a pump dispenser.


Now, I like this one!  This works incredibly good, and it smells good all the same!  I am teaching my son about hygiene, so having a scented soap in the bathroom makes him want to use it.  The packaging is fun, bright, and intriguing.  Plus, it foams really well!


You are going to love this!  But wait-- there's more!  (3) of you are going to win coupons for a FREE bottle of either the Dial Baby Body + Hair Wash or the Dial Kids Foaming Hand Soap!  Enter below for your chance to win!

..::Product + Video Review::.. Chew-Choos Silicone Teething Necklace


My Review of the Chew-Choos Silicone Teething Necklace

What is it exactly?

     From the website. . .
"This piece is perfect for any occasion whether you want to dress up or keep it casual chic. It features a bare cord at the nape and sides to help prevent hair pulling. The beads are placed 6 cm away from the breakaway safety clasp on each side. It alternates the colors gray, turquoise and Navajo white while using a simple gradient of 9, 12 and 15 mm sized beads. The clasp is strong enough to endure infant tugs without falling off easily. It will work nicely for baby wearing or during nursing sessions to give your little one something to occupy their hands."

Review…


I was sent a "Playdate" teething necklace in turquoise, gray, and Navajo white  from BabyPinch Boutique to review.  

The price for this kit is $24.95.  Shipping is free with Amazon Prime.

Packaging & Presentation of the Chew-Choos Silicone Teething Necklace

This teething necklace arrived to me in perfect condition.  There were no dents, defects, nor issues during shipment.  It was shipped inside of a cellophane bag.  The bag  measures 5.5" x 4.0" x 1.0".


When I took the necklace out, I found the card that came along with it.


The card explains a lot about the product in detail.  It also explains the care information.


The silicone beads range from 9-15 mm.  They are beautifully colored!


The clasp is a 'break away' clasp.  It's strong enough to hold on, but breaks away when enough pressure is put on each end.


My Personal Experience with the Chew-Choos Silicone Teething Necklace

I love teething necklaces.  My daughter is 12-months, and she is still teething.  It's been one heck of a ride.  Long nights, lots of tears, and painful gums.  Teething necklaces serve many purposes but my favorite two are:

+ Provides relief from hurting, painful gums
+ Provides a distraction when you need it!

Check out my First Impression video!


Pros of the Chew-Choos Silicone Teething Necklace
  • 100% safe, free of any BPA, phthalates, and other toxins.
  • Certified by FDA, LFGB, and RoHS.
  • Love the break away clasp!
  • Great, vibrant colors.
    Cons of the Chew-Choos Silicone Teething Necklace
    • I haven't found any cons of this product.
            Summary

            I've been really enjoying my time using this necklace.  It's been a real lifesaver!  The colors are great, and I love that you have a choice if this one just isn't for you!  Your baby will love this!

            My Review of YouTrim - Dual Action Natural Weight Loss

            What is it exactly?

                 From the website. . .
            "It doesn't matter who you are, whether you're male or female, whether you've tried to lose weight in the past or whether this is your first time ever. YouTrim's ultimate weight loss pills are 100% SAFE AND NATURAL - making it a breeze for nearly anyone to lose weight FAST with YouTrim slimming pills"

            Review…


            I was sent a 30-day supply from YouTrim to review.  

            The price for this kit is $29.97.  Shipping is free with Amazon Prime.

            Packaging & Presentation of YouTrim - Dual Action Natural Weight Loss

            This 30-day supply arrived to me in perfect condition.  There were no dents, defects, nor issues during shipment.  The box is white, and it has orange and purple accents.  The box measures 5.0" x 4.5" x 2.5".

            The front of the box labels the product and brand.  It lists the included components.  It also provides four features of this product:

            + Dietary Supplement
            + 100% Natural
            + Premium Quality
            + For Men and Women

            The back of the box has the distribution information, supplement facts (and ingredients) of each bottle, important information, and warnings.  This product is 100% pure, and is manufactured in a GMP-certified facility.


            Both sides of the box are the same, but one is purple and the other is orange.


            The bottom of the box  has company contact information, lot number, and expiration date.  The box opens from the sides, and each side has a safety seal.


            When I opened the side of the box, I found two bottles and a set of instructions (again, color-coded).


            The purple bottle (the capsules) is your CLA.  The bottle provides all pertinent information.


            The second bottle (the gel caps) is where you'll find an energy blend.


            Each bottle had its own safety seal.


            The capsules look different, but they work in conjunction with one another.


            My Personal Experience with YouTrim - Dual Action Natural Weight Loss

            I'm always looking for a weight loss product that is better than the previous.  I've really been into the whole 'double-formula' thing lately.  I really like this blend because it has everything that I take separately in one dose.  I take one of each in the morning, and at dinner. 

            Check out my First Impression video!


            Pros of YouTrim - Dual Action Natural Weight Loss
            • Love that it is 100% natural.
            • Great blend of ingredients.
            • Provides a bunch of energy.
              Cons of YouTrim - Dual Action Natural Weight Loss
              • I haven't found any cons of this product.
                      Summary

                      I'm really enjoying this supplement.  I switch all of the time because I do not want my body to get 'accustomed' to any one sort.  I really like how each capsule is different, but they work great together.  I can tell a noticeable difference within 20 minutes of taking these!

                      What is it exactly?

                      I was sent a 1.0 fl oz bottle of Advanced Firming Eye Cream from Elba Naturals to review.  

                      The price for this bottle is $45.00.  Shipping is free with Amazon Prime.


                      Packaging & Presentation of Elba Naturals Advanced Firming Eye Cream

                      This package arrived to me in perfect condition.  There were no dents, defects, nor issues during shipment.  The bottle was shipped inside of a bubble wrap bag.  The bottle itself measures 5.0" x 1.25".  The label is orange with gray and yellow accents.  




                      The front of the bottle labels the product and brand.  It lists the main ingredients. 


                      The right side provides more detailed information, directions for use, notes, and manufacturer information.  The left side is where you'll find the list of ingredients.  It is 97.5% naturally derived and 70% organic.  This is made in the USA, made with certified organic ingredients, not tested on animals, and has a PAO of 12 months.


                      It has a pump dispenser.  You get a nice amount with it, and it's easy to use.


                      My Personal Experience with Elba Naturals Advanced Firming Eye Cream

                      You guys know that I'm crazy about my creams!  I usually use an eye 'gel' (or serum), but this is one of the few creams I've ever used.

                      It goes on nice and smooth.  It's a very light cream that is easily absorbed.  It has a very strong herbal scent.

                        Summary

                        I love how this feels.  When I get out of the shower at night, it's always refreshing to put on.  It doesn't sit on my skin, it absorbs almost instantly without any trouble.  I actually enjoy the way it is fragranced.  I haven't had any problem with it sitting underneath my makeup.

                        ..::Glitz 'n Glamour::.. Foxbrim Peptide Complete Serum Review


                        Hi, everyone! I have this obsession with skin care so I am always excited and willing to try new things that relate to my skin care regimen. I am a big fan of serums, I just love the way they feel on my face. One of my favorite brands to use is Foxbrim, which I was lucky enough to have been sent a Foxbrim ‘Peptide Complete Serum’. Why am I so excited for a Peptide serum? Well Peptides are really great for anti-aging. Never too early to start preventing those unwanted wrinkles!

                        MY PERSONAL REVIEW:
                        You know I am very into labels and think they are very important. I was sent a 1 fl oz. bottle). The front of the label says the brand which is Foxbrim. The actual product is ‘Peptide Complex Serum with Peptides+ Vitamin E and Hyaluronic Acid’. It also mentions this is an Advanced Delivery Serum. This label does include directions and it can be used under makeup. The ingredients are also listed. 


                        This is a glass bottle with a dropper, I like that the serum has a dropper, they are just easier to use this way. There is also a seal on the outside of the bottle, which prevents the product from leaking.


                        I noticed through the bottle that the serum looked very thick. I was anxious to see if it was actually as thick as the products looks. I took the dropper out and it looked like a gel. Most serums that I have used have been runnier. I decided to test the product on my hand. It came out on my hand like a gel just as it looks. I started rubbing the product into my skin and it still had the texture of a gel. This is not a sticky product, just an odd texture. It rubbed in very smooth and felt nice on my skin. I used it on my face and it was exactly the same as on my hand. I did feel a slight tightening of the skin on my face, but that is what we want to feel from an anti-aging product, we want it to lift the skin so this was a plus for me. 


                        Overall, I really liked this product it was a little different from other serums I have used in the past but I actually like the fact that it wasn't watery. I feel that you want the product to tighten the skin and if the texture is runny or watery you aren't going to get the lift you desire when using anti-aging products. I recommend this product to anyone who is seeking a great anti-aging product. This product goes for $21.99 with Amazon Prime. Please check it out here.

                        *NOTE: This label is not the same as the one an amazon but it is the same product. The only thing I noticed that was different is the label the one listed on Amazon has ‘Witch Hazel’ listed on the front of the bottle as this bottle does not but it does have it as an ingredient. (The ingredients are listed on the side of this bottle so I did check!)

                        xoxo
