SkinMD Natural Review and FREE samples



Skin MD Natural is the #1
Shielding Lotion
How Does a Shielding Lotion Work to Prevent Dry Skin?
Shielding lotion is a new scientific approach to dry skin care based on improving the skin's natural functions. Shampoos, antibacterial soaps, cosmetics, fragrances, colorants and other irritants bombard and penetrate the skin. These harsh chemicals and irritants can break down the skin's natural protective ability. Some strip away moisture, while others lodge in the pores where they cause irritation and other negative reactions.

Skin MD Natural™ is a state-of-the-art shielding lotion designed to duplicate the skin's own protective barrier helping to protect skin against damaging irritants while providing hours of non-greasy moisture. This makes Skin MD Natural the ideal choice for dry skin treatment over other lotions for dry skin.

Conventional dry skin lotions don't protect against the causes of dry skin and have only one basic goal – to make up for the moisture that our bodies are losing by adding an artificial source of moisture. Replace your old dry skin lotion with Skin MD Natural lotion for naturally healthy skin.

How Does Skin MD Natural Provide Hours of Non-greasy Moisture?
Many bargain lotions and conventional moisturizers contain low cost ingredients like petroleum that make skin a greasy mess instead of healing dry skin. Skin MD Natural lotion uses only the finest high quality ingredients to create a lightweight formula that absorbs quickly for silky, smooth skin without any greasy residue.

A shielding lotion becomes part of the skin's protective barrier helping to strengthen and restore it. This ability allows Skin MD Natural to retain skin’s own natural oils alleviating the need for artificial moisturizers as a dry skin treatment.

"Most moisturizers do not seal in the body's own moisture, they artificially lubricate the outer layers of skin. When they wear off, the lubrication is gone and the original dryness remains. Sometimes this process will draw out the body's natural moisture and contribute to the dehydration process.

Skin MD Natural has an added benefit of forming a natural barrier, sealant on the skin, keeping its own natural moisture inside. This eliminates the need for having to put an artificial moisturizer on several times during the day, as Skin MD Natural lasts a good portion of 8 hours with one application.

This is important, because it decreases your need for applying excess moisturizer and allows the body to take care of its own moisture needs without the added bother of putting on another cream," writes Dr. Peter Helton, a board-certified dermatologist specializing in cosmetic dermatology.

Why Skin MD is "Natural"
Currently the FDA has no regulations concerning the labeling of beauty or skin care products as natural. Products containing toxic, even potentially carcinogenic, ingredients can label and market themselves as natural. Skin MD Natural is over 93% "natural" and the ingredients that are not "natural" are of food or medical grade quality and on the FDA's most safe list.

Our lotions are made to be free of parabens, petrochemicals, dyes, and other irritating ingredients. They are also vegan, cruelty free, and eco-friendly. We don't participate in animal testing or use any animal products in our lotions and Skin MD Natural is formulated in the United States in a facility that uses 100% solar power.

Eco Friendly, Cruelty Free and Vegan Skin Care
Skin MD Natural and Skin MD Natural + SPF 15 are manufactured in the United States using 100% solar power, free of animal products and animal testing.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Review~ I received many samples to try SkinMD. I have been using SkinMD natural for over a week. It is amazing! Its not thick or greasy and very easy to apply. I used it on my heels because they are dry and crack easily, my heals where snagging my socks and I was unable to wear stockings to church because they would run. My heals are now soft and don't scratch my socks and I am able to wear stocking NOW!! I am really impressed with this product! You can receive a free sample if you click the button above and try it or yourself. You will agree with me after you use it just one time, that its a wonderful product. I also like that SkinMD is Eco friendly and cruelty free and it is a Vegan skin care product which means its free of animal testing! Skin MD Natural Shielding Lotion is formulated to be far more effective than traditional moisturizing lotions or protective creams. It utilizes more than 90% natural ingredients and 100% food – grade ingredients that are on the FDA’s “most safe” list.The manufacturer's website http://www.skinmdnatural.com/  has hundreds of dermatologist and user reviews including many addressing severe dry skin problems such as eczema and psoriasis.

You can get a 3 month supply for just $18!

Review~ groOrganic’s Garden Planner




Product Description

Organic gardening is a popular subject today. Many are becoming aware of the benefits of eating organically and growing vegetables and fruit in their own backyards. This is not a new concept. Rather it is a very OLD concept. The “conventional” gardening and farming of today relies on the use of pesticides and chemical fertilizers. “Organic” gardening and farming restricts the use of artificial chemical fertilizers and pesticides. Instead, organic growers rely on developing a healthy fertile soil and growing a mixture of crops. This is the way our grandparents or great grandparents grew their produce.



Unfortunately, we have to re-learn how to grow food. This is a lost art to many inexperienced gardeners. We have many sources to help begin a new gardening project if we have the desire to do so. New ideas to make gardening easier for the novice as well as for the experienced gardener are readily available on the internet and in gardening books. How-To videos will even show you step-by-step the building of raised planter beds. But then what? Wouldn’t it be great if you could just type in your zip code and have a gardening program remind you when to plant and when to harvest? Wouldn’t it be great to enjoy the convenience of growing your own produce without the back-breaking weeding of the past?



groOrganic, an innovative company, will provide 'full service' vegetable gardening for people with little time or experience. groOrganic can supply complete raised bed vegetable gardens installed and maintained by professionals or will consult with a client who just needs a little advice.
groOrganic offers the most up to date gardening design and maintenance software technology.
Our Garden Planner:
[ ] Makes it easy to draw out your vegetable beds, add plants and move them around to get the perfect layout. Either feet and inches or metric units are supported and any shape of garden can be created.
[ ] Adapts to suit your gardening style whether you use traditional row planting, raised beds or Square Foot Gardening.
[ ] Adapts to your own area using our database of over 5000 weather stations.
[ ] Prints your own personalized planting chart showing how many of each plant you require and when to sow, plant and harvest them.
[ ] Sends email reminders twice a month of what needs planting from your garden plans.

Although started in California, groOrganic is franchising the concept across the US with great success, enabling rapid growth. “HERE WE gro AGAIN!”

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Review~ GroOrganic was so easy to use! The site was easy to navigate and the instructions were very simple to follow. The graph was easy to fill in with the plants and veggies. You can print the chart once you finish building it online. Its a great way to start a new garden. The online builder has trees and plants of all kinds. The site also tells you what plants are great for your area!
If you need help getting started with a garden or landscapping project this is an awesome site to get it started and map it out!

Voda Swim’s Envy Push Up Bikinis are designed to visually increase bust size by one to two cup sizes. In addition, that patent-pending Envy Push Up pad retains less than a tablespoon of water, helping the tops to retain their extraordinary fit, even when wet.


I was totally psyched when I found out I was approved to review and giveaway a Voda Swim Envy Push up Bikini! I knew right away that I was going to get a 1 piece:) I have lots of spots I need to hide:) I spent over an hour checking out their suits!

I finally chose the Breeze Envy Push Up® One Piece Shipping was super FAST! It arrived within days of picking the suit! The suit had a price tag of $127 on it! It arrived wrapped in purple tissue paper! I felt like I had received something very special. Then I opened it up and all I could say was WOW! This suit really made me feel special and beautiful!

I am very impressed with this swim suit! It gave me at least 2 cups sizes bigger than I normally am! It ties at the top of the neck and the back. The ends of the ties are 14K gold plated and are chlorine and salt water resistant! The Body of the suit is fully lined and made of nylon and spandex to give it a perfect fit. I like that this suit provides full coverage for all those "problem areas" and Its made in the USA!! This suit will last me for years!

Review~ The First Escape


List Price:19.99

ISBN:978-1-4143-1947-6

Trim Size:6 x 9

Binding:Hardcover

Release:September 2008

From the best-selling author of Shadowmancer comes an enthralling new series of illustra-novellas. The First Escape is the first book in the Dopple Ganger Chronicles, a six-book series following three children—Sadie and Saskia Dopple and Erik Morrissey Ganger. Sadie and Saskia are mischievous identical twins living at an orphanage, where Erik is their only friend. They are separated when Saskia is adopted by Muzz Elliott, a wealthy woman searching for her long-lost family treasure. While Saskia stumbles into the center of a crime only she can stop, Sadie and Erik embark on a quest to find her. This book is in an exciting new format called an “illustra-novella,” in which the story is told alternately in graphic novel format and plain text with occasional illustrations.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

My Review~ My oldest son likes to read graphic novels so I thought this book would begreat for him. This book is a "novella". Its a mix between a novel and a graphic novel. This fast-paced, high-energy, intense story will keep readers turning pages faster than they ever have before. Twin sisters Sadie and Saskia team up with fellow orphan Erik to escape the drudgery of the orphanage. Along the way they discover dark secrets and a conspiracy that could separate the twins forever. The target audience is grades 4 - 7 and I would not encourage it for younger readers without a parent reading it first. There is subject matter that is more manageable for older readers but may be a bit scary for younger ones. The intensity in the plot is relieved by humour that appeals directly to this age range (there is a stuffed donkey bottom involved - need I say more?) While at times I found the jump from novel to comic a bit hard to follow, my reluctant reader made the leap seamlessly and caught the visual story details that I often missed. The First Escape introduces spiritual themes and the author has left room to expand these themes in the coming books.

Thanks to Tyndale for a chance to get my child to review a book that he actually read!

Review~ Costume Discounters


I was so excited when I got an email asking me to choose a costume from their inventory and write a review about it! I knew exactly which child was going to get a new costume. My daughter's birthday is on Halloween, so I picked her to get a new costume. She and I looked over their many pages of children's and teens costumes and finally narrowed it down! There were so many to choose from including Angels, bunnies, super heroes, Harry Potter, M & M's and many many more.


We decided on the Teen Buggin Out Bee And Ladybug Costume!
We decided on this one because this is great for any teenager who attends Halloween parties and doesn't want to have the same costume at every party, also my daughter will change her mind from one day to the next..lol

About the costume: The Buggin Out Bee and Ladybug Teen Costume is a fully reversible costume so you get two totally cute costumes for the price of one. If you're looking for variety or can't make up your mind this will make the perfect Halloween costume. The Buggin Out Bee and Ladybug Costume Teen features a yellow and black striped bumble bee on one side and a ladybug red dress with black polka on the other side. The dress is made of stretch knit with a big black attached tutu skirt. The dress can be worn strapless or with optional clear shoulder straps. The Buggin Out Bee and Ladybug costume also includes sheer black wings and black heart antennas that go perfectly with both costumes.

* Features a fully reversible bumble bee and lady bug stretch knit dress with removable clear shoulder straps and tutu hem detail, an antennae headband and wings. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

We were so excited when it arrived! It arrived very quickly and she tried it on right away! We give the costume a A+. The size was perfect and fit right for her. All the items that were listed were included as stated. Best of all the costume was cute!.

Review~ Home-Ec 101


Home-Ec 101 by author and One2One Network Member Heather Solos shares tips and tricks for tackling the everyday challenges we find in the home. Heather's advice is easy to apply and is written with the same witty style and attitude readers love on her blog, Home-Ec101.com. Charts, tips, sidebars and "Dear Home Ec 101" letters cover offer the tools you need to keep your home clean and in good repair. The perfect manual for college grads to the more seasoned homemakers, this book has something to offer everyone. From the simplest how to's (ever meet a 20 year old who can't pre-heat an oven?) to how to be a fabulous host at your housewarming party, Heather's advice is relevant for homeowners and apartment dwellers of any age.

You can purchase it at amazon or Barnes and Noble.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Review~ This is a wondeful book! Despite having been a home maker for more than 20 years, I learned a few new tricks looking through. The charts in this book alone make it well worth its value. There are chapters on how to cook, clean and even minor home repairs. There's even a handy section in the back of the book with recipes for homemade cleaning solutions, emergency preparedness checklists, and measurement conversion charts.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Thanks to the one2onenetwork for the chance to read and review this book. I received the e-book free for this review.

Review~ Unsinkable


Book Description The stirring narrative of Unsinkable** tells 16-year-old Abby Sunderland’s remarkable true story of attempting to become the youngest person ever to sail solo around the world.


More people have flown into outer space than have sailed solo around the globe. It is a challenge so immense that many have died trying, and all have been pushed beyond every physical, emotional, psychological, and spiritual limit. In Unsinkable, readers follow Abby Sunderland into those depths. This biography delivers a gripping and evocative firsthand account that starts prior to her departure, travels through her daring (and sometimes near-death) encounters on the open sea, to her dramatic rescue in the remotest corner of the Indian Ocean, and the media explosion that happened upon her safe return to dry land.


Along the way, readers discover what it means to boldly face any challenge, to strive after something great, and to plumb the depths of faith, fear, and desperation only to emerge changed, renewed, and emboldened. In this day and age, when the most productive thing a teenager may do is play videogames, Abby’s ambition and tenacity is a real-life parable of what can happen when we choose to exceed our own limits and strive after what all the naysayers say is impossible.


**This title does not contain the amount of faith-focused content as many other books offered on BookSneeze.com. If you prefer Christian Living titles featuring a large amount of faith-centered content, Unsinkable is probably not the best selection for you.

~~~~~~~~~~~

Review~ This book was an interesting view in to what Abby went thru day to day to be the youngest person to sail solo around the world! It starts before she leaves and goes all the way to her return to dry land. If you like true stories this is the book for you!

~~~~~~~~~~~

Disclosure: I got this book from booksneeze for exchange for this review.

Review~ Scrubbing Bubbles® Toilet Gel


Scrubbing Bubbles® Toilet Gel


Ah, the toilet. You use it every day and clean it every well, you probably can't remember the last time you cleaned it. Don't feel guilty with Scrubbing Bubbles® Toilet Cleaning Gel, each fresh-smelling gel disc works hard with you to help keep your bowl cleaner for longer:


  • Prevents build up of lime scale and toilet rings

  • Comes ready-to-use with one disposable dispenser and one gel holder (which contains six gel discs)

  • Eliminates odors as it cleans

  • Each disc lasts up to one week and leaves no residue

  • Available in three fragrances, Fresh Clean, Fresh Mountain Morning and Citrus, wherever Scrubbing Bubbles® products are sold

How does it work? Each freshening gel disc sits below the rim and gradually dissolves with each flush, allowing a controlled release of powerful cleaning solution and fragrance.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Review~ This product is so easy to use! Just push the stick against the side of the toilet bowl and a small dap of gel is left there. It smells nice and lasts up to 1 week.

Review~ Skillet Bacon Jam


Product Description

what is skillet bacon jam? we make this bacon spread condiment called bacon jam..you say what?.. that’s right, we use niman ranch bacon and render it down along with onions, balsamic and other spices . It cooks for several hours until it is a perfect blend of smoky, tangy, savory and slightly sweet….basically spreadable bacony goodness! USDA approved.

You can put it on your burger, serve it on crostini, perhaps on a grilled cheese, as a substitute for bacon on a BLT, or maybe the base for a vinaigrette

Review~ My family and I enjoyed the Skillet Bacon Jam. We added it to many meals over the past week. We added a small bit to beef stew and soups. It had a great flavor and didnt over take the stew or the soup. We give it a A+ for taste.
