The Germinator~ a Naturally Safe Way to Beat Germs ~Review and giveaway

Hands are car pools for germs, and little hands are not picky about who they attack!
Enter The Germinator: suddenly hands are safe to hold, kiss and to high-five another lovely day.


When the leaves begin to change color and the air becomes crisp, it is evident that a new season is upon us, and I’m not just talking about the fall or winter. Thats the unofficial mark the start of cold and flu season. For most parents, this is a cause for concern as Swine and Avian flu have been running rampant the last few years almost reaching pandemic status in this country. Luckily there are some basic all-natural and time-tested precautions that we should all be taking to help prevent this dreaded virus from afflicting ourselves, our families and most importantly our children this year. 

One of the easiest ways to prevent getting sick is to keep your hands clean and germ-free. Constant washing and use of an alcohol-based hand sanitizer is not only a hassle, but it can also dry out your hands. BabyGanics ‘The Germinator’ Alcohol Free Foaming Hand Sanitizer effectively kills 99.9% of germs without the harsh side effects of alcohol and other synthetic chemicals. It instead utilizes benzalkonium chloride, a naturally safe and effective substance which makes The Germinator not only fast acting, but allows for use without water or towels, its non-flammable, will not stain your clothing, and definitely won’t dry out your skin. In fact, this non-toxic formula actually moisturizes as it cleans and is of course the best choice for even the tiniest fingers and hands.
~~~~~~~~~~~
BabyGanics ‘The Germinator’ Alcohol Free Foaming Hand Sanitizer is available in a fresh tangerine scent as well as a fragrance free variety and retails for $6.99 (250ml).
This product can be purchased online at http://www.babyganics.com/ and nationwide at all Babies R Us, Bed Bath & Beyond and Buy Buy Baby locations.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I have been using the BabyGanics "The Germinator" in the main bathroom. for almost a month. 
It does not dry out my hands. Leaves them feeling soft, smooth and clean.
Its very easy to use~ Pump a small amount of foam into palm of hand.  Rub thoroughly over all surfaces of both hands.  Rub hands together briskly until dry.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
BabyGanics has offered one of my readers their own the Germinator to fight away all those germs!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Giveaway~ 1 reader of Dnbuster's Place will win a travel size which is 50ml. Its fragrance free and retails for $3.99. It’s perfect for parents on the go, allowing them to quickly throw it in their bags to bring with them everywhere. To enter please complete the raffle copter entry form below.!

Schick Introduces New Hydro Silk Razor~ review

It has been a long time since we've seen anything "revolutionary" when speaking about razors, and considering that most of us shave often. we have gone through plenty of razors in our lifetime. Now, Schick is releasing a brand new razor to change the way that we not only think about the brand, but also how we think about shaving. The Hydro Silk razor, which has been in the works for seven years, has been designed to give you the closest possible shave. 
  • Skin Guards are added to each blade, doubling the points of contact between the blades and the skin. The blades and Skin Guards work together to smooth your skin as you shave and to reduce irritation.
  • The Compact Oval Cartridge is designed exclusively for the contours and curves of a woman’s body including those hard to reach places.
  • Aqueous Soft Touch Handle is ergonomic by design with a soft rubber grip and is inspired by water for a beautiful look.
  • 5 Curve Sensing Blades deliver an incredibly close shave for silky smooth skin.
  • A special water-activated Moisturizing Serum hydrates to replenish skin’s natural moisture throughout each shave. It’s infused with nourishing marine extracts and rich shea butter.

 


 
This razor is wonderful! Its easy to hold and leaves my legs smooth to the touch! I give the razor a 5 out of 5!

 

 
disclosure~ I am sharing this information as part of the Schick Hydro Influenster program. I was given a Schick Hydro razor to review for this post.

Dulce de Leche Cheerios has 19 grams of whole grain per serving.)

Perky Pet~ Bird Feeder Review


I am a member of a wonderful blogger program called Perky-Pet® Blogger Review Panel. As a part of this review panel, we receive a bird feeder monthly to review and give our opinion!

For the month of January


This bird feeder is a beautiful bird feeder and is really neat.
One side is for seed and the other side is for water. OR you can use both for feed or water.

The Cooper feeder is Best Used For:
Providing fresh, clean water to wild birds. A water source in your backyard is a simple and effective way of attracting wild birds. Water attracts species that you may not see at your seed feeder.

Product Features:
•Made of glass and antiqued copper finish
•Unique double silo design
•Silos feature a patent-pending collar that twists to feature a seed or water opening

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
My kiddos and I were so excited to become part of this program! We tore open the box as soon as the bird feeder arrived. The kids put it together, filled it up with water and ran outside to hang it out. After a few days we filled one side with seed. I have to say this was one of the best reviews I have done. I like that it involved the whole family and is very educational. When we see a bird we try to guess what kind of bird it is. I have the feeder hung on a big tree right by my window so I can see the birds stopping in to it. We have seen many different types of bird stop in and feed. This has been a wonderful family friendly review. The kids point out all the different birds that stop by.




disclosure~ I received a copper sip and seed bird feeder from Perky Pets for my review. All opinions are my own.

Kushyfoot is the first hosiery brand to incorporate the ancient healing art of Reflexology in trouser and knee highs, foot covers, toe covers, athletic socks, tights and men's socks to massage with every step.
The massage action works by providing extra comfort through its 3 dimensional padded and wavy design and it provides a cushion between bare feet and the hard soles of a shoe. The Kushyfoot sole helps relieve tension and discomfort in achy feet, thereby helping to relieve stress and fatigue throughout the entire body. These therapeutic socks protect your feet and leave you feeling refreshed all day!

Kushyfoot offers assorted styles to complement every type of footwear from foot covers, toe covers to trouser socks and sheer knee highs for ladies.

Other categories include athletic socks for men and ladies, made of a blend of combed cotton, nylon and elastane for added cushion in your sport shoes.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I received a couple of items to review from Kushyfoot.

The first item was a pair of Zebra Print Flats to Go


NEW Zebra print Flats-to-go ®! Soft, flexible faux leather Flats-to-go ® are an instant and elegant solution to a perennial need for the relief of sore heels, blisters and scrunched up toes. Featuring an elastic back for a better fit, and a unique, 3-dimensional wavy sole that cushions and massages the foot as the wearer walks-perfect for indoor and smooth outdoor surfaces. They slip neatly and easily into their owner's purse, folded into a cute clear plastic carrier with its own little handles.
1 pack per order Order your own pair of flats to go here for just $9.99
They are available in many patterns and styles. The selection includes a classic black, sliver, zebra print cream with perfs, snake print, and embossed alligator in both bronze and black.

These are just wonderful to put on at the end of a long day. They are soft and flexible.  I like that I can stash them in my purse or bag and they don't take up alot of room. The zebra print allows me to stay stylish even at the end of a long day of running around and kids! These are a must have for any women on the go! I put them on as soon as I get home nightly. I have to keep them on my feet or my teenage daughter will take them....lol
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The second item was a pair of Microfiber Crew socks

The new crew length style features a comfort roll top band for a non-binding fit and special Coolmax fiber to wisk moisture - all with the knit-in cushioned sole. The style is ideal with the season's hottest Gladiator type shoes, but also works well with heels or cool pumps. •Fiber Content: 92% Nylon, 8% Elastane.
Order a pair of microfiber crew socks here for just $3.99 each or 3 for $11.97.
This style is available in black or cream and fits shows sizes from 5 to 10.

I am not much into long socks so I gave these to my daughter to wear and give me her opinion. She wore them to school on uniform day and loved them! She wore them as part of her ROTC uniform and she has been wearing them every uniform day since! She said they didn't pinch or bind and kept her feet dry during all her walking to and from classes at school. If they pass the teenage girl test you know they are awesome!

Giveaway~ Win a Jockey Sports bra and Purex crystals (review)


Hi Y'all!
As part of the Purex Insiders Program
I get to test AWESOME products!
This time around I got to review Purex Crystals fabric softener.
Not only did I receive the Purex Crystals but I also got a Jockey Sports bra to see how well the bra would hold
up in the wash with the crystals!

Before I give you my review of the Purex Crystals and the Jockey sports bra let me give ya some facts about the products!


2012 Purex Crystals~
The more natural way to freshen your clothes for weeks not days. Purex Crystals are 92% natural crystals that go in at the start of the wash so they spend more time with your laundry infusing them with long lasting freshness.
Purex Crystals do not contain oil, so it can be safely used on all laundry including
  • ~Athletic wear
  • ~ towels
  • ~ children's sleepwear
  • ~ and everything else

2012 Jockey Tech Terry Performance Sports Bra
  • ~ moisture-wicking~ sports bra helps keep you cool and dry
  • ~Convenient key pocket~ so you can take your workout anywhere
  • ~Reflective logo at the back
  • ~breathable mesh panels
  • ~soft bottom band for comfort support
The fiber contest is 93% polyester and 7% spandex
The Lining is 94% polyester and 6% spandex
they are machine washable and can take the dryer


Normally you should not use fabric softener on performance sportswear because the oil content prevents the wicking process. That's why we are so excited about pairing it with the 2012 Purex Crystals!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
My review~ I wanna first tell ya that the smell of the Purex Crystals, it is just wonderful! My laundry room is the best smelling room in my house after a load of laundry with the Purex Crystals! I received the Tropical Splash scent! It smells like a tropical island and makes laundry not such a bad chore with the great smell. It left my towels and blankets fresh, fluffy and smelling great until I had to wash them again! I wash sheets and blankets once a week unless there has been a accident or something that requires me to wash something immediately. The Purex crystals are so easy to use and come with a measuring cup that snaps to the top of the bottle. You add the Purex Crystals to the wash at the beginning of the wash cycle with the laundry. I like that I don't have to watch the washer to add the softener at a certain time. The Purex Crystals are so convenient! All my laundry is so soft and smells great and as a busy mom that's perfect! It makes me feel good to have great smelling laundry! I give the Purex Crystals a 5 out of 5 for smell and convenience!
The Jockey Sports bra help up very well even after 5 washes!  The picture below of the sports bra is after 5 washes in with the Purex Crystals! It kept its shape and fit the same way it did when it first arrived! There are no signs of wearing, you know how you get those fuzz balls on most bras after a few washes and they look old and worn out. I don't have that with my Jockey bra! I do suggest that if you purchase a Jockey sports bra to get a size bigger than you normally wear, they seem to run a bit small. Other than that I give the Jockey sports bra a 4.5 stars out of 5!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Sign up for a coupon from Jockey for a great saving on your very own sports bra! In the mean time, you can enter below to win a bottle of Purex Crystals and a Jockey sports bra!

Review and Giveaway~ Glasses from Just Eyewear.com



I bet you are thinking "Buy glasses online"?
It is really easy and simple with Just EyeWear!!

Buy Glasses Online
Via: Just Eyewear

How to Buy Glasses Online
By now you know buying eyeglasses online is Guaranteed, Economic, and Efficient. But like going in to plant your first real kiss (or anything new and exciting), buying your first pair of glasses online may still seem daunting.
Never fear, our online guide to buying glasses is here, more helpful than a horde of experienced older sisters. So pucker up, pull up the monitor, and follow my lead. I'm guiding you to glasses bliss.
Simply follow the three "knows" of buying glasses online:
1. Know Your Frame—Look inside an existing frame, usually on the temple, for a series of numbers like 50-18-140. These are the lens width, bridge size, and temple length, respectively. Then, you can search for a frame according to style, with the measurements to know how the glasses will fit. These measurements are in millimeters, so they only need to be close, not exact. When you find the frames you love, it’s time to personalize the lenses.
2. Know Your Prescription—Have your glasses prescription ready (yes, this is different than your contact prescription). Simply ask your eye doctor for it at your next visit, or have your doctor fax it to you. Your eyeglasses prescription includes many numbers and parts. Don’t feel overwhelmed by this. Understanding is just a mouse click away.
3. Know Your Pupillary Distance (PD)—This is the distance between your pupils. Ask your eye doctor for this measurement. You can also take it yourself. Having your PD ensures your lenses will align to your eyes properly.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I was given the chance to review for Just EyeWear and I knew just whom in the house would be the perfect person to order them for! My daughter was in need a new pair, so she was nominated for the review for the Just Eyewear glasses!
The hardest and longest part of the review was allowing Jessica to look thru the website and pick the perfect frame for her.
Just EyeWear has over 900 frames to choose from:)
After 30 minutes or so of her looking thru the site of frames she finally came to a decision.....

Jessica picked  the "Valley Girl" frame.

These frames were only $7.95!

Ordering the frames you like is as simple as clicking on the picture of the frames! From there you go to the next page, thats where you pick the color of the frames. The next page, you choose how you use your glasses. To see far, near or both. On the next page, you choose what kind of lenses you want. We picked the "select package" that included thin and light lenses, anti-scratch coating and 100% UV protection for only $29. There is also a basic package that is free that includes standard plastic lenses and anti-scratch coating. On the final page you enter you prescription and pupillary distance. Then check out!

HOW EASY IT THAT!!

The total of the glasses that Jessica ordered was just under $37!
The $50 gift cert I received to do the review more than covered the cost of the glasses and shipping!
Here is what arrived!


She LUVS them!
She also received a hard case to keep her glasses safe and a cleaning cloth to clean her lenses with!
We rate Just EyeWear a 5+out of 5!
ordering was easy and we got what we ordered!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Go to Just EyeWear to order your glasses today, frames start at JUST $8 or enter the giveaway below!

I must say that I am very impressed by the Alpha Hydrox line of products. I intended to give these review items to my son for treatment of his acne, but as soon the products arrived I just had to try them! I am speachless. I am almost 40 years old and my skin looks and feels like I am 10 years younger! I luv that there was no smell to the products and no residue. I have been using the products for over a month now and about to order some more of the same products that I received to review! My face has never looked or felt better. The prices are very reasonable and fit well within any budget! I give the Alpha Hydrox face wash a 5 out of 5. I give the acne treatment a 5 out of 5. I havent had any breakouts since i starting using it! Thanks Alpha Hydrox for the chance to review your items and feel better about my skin and face!

I received a Roots Only hair color applicator comb to review!




Roots Only 5 minutes Hair color comb~ Directions:



1. Mix hair color solution following manufacturer’s instructions.
2. Pour hair color solution into bottle provided, and screw on the “Roots Only” hair coloring applicator comb.
3. Although “Roots Only” is virtually mess free, it’s a good idea to place a towel over your shoulders.
4. Run a comb through your hair to remove any tangles.
5. Using “Roots Only” as you would a comb, comb through your hair while squeezing the bottle. Be sure to keep the teeth of the comb in contact with your scalp.
6. If you hit a tangle, simply stop squeezing the bottle and use the applicator head as a comb to remove the tangle.
7. The hair color solution stops flowing when you stop squeezing. Once the tangle is gone, reposition the “Roots Only” hair coloring applicator comb and resume.
8. Follow manufacturer’s instructions for hair color processing time.


To Clean “ROOTS ONLY” Applicator:


1. Fill the “Roots Only” bottle with warm soapy water, and screw on the hair coloring applicator comb.
2. Shake and squeeze water through the hair coloring applicator comb until water flow is clean and free of hair color solution.

I LUV the Roots Only hair color comb!
Its makes hair color touch ups so fast and easy!
The comb targets the roots of your hair, saving time and money!
I will be using it anytime I need to cover those greys or blend the ends of the hair to make it all the same color:)
