ToothTimer review and giveaway

I received this wonderful product to review 
its called a 

Experts recommend brushing your teeth for two minutes. A recent study found young adults spent less than 35 seconds brushing their teeth.
New research is that finding heart disease and strokes, as well as diabetes and respiratory disease, may be linked to gum disease. Consider your mouth as a doorway to your body. Plaque is a colorless film of bacteria that sticks to teeth and if not properly removed, can lead to gum disease. The bacteria associated with gum disease can enter your bloodstream and travel throughout your body. Good oral hygiene is the best prevention.
Healthy habits begin early and our award-winning, mom-invented products are designed to help children achieve good dental health and have fun doing it! Recommended by dentists and dental hygienists for a lifetime of healthy smiles!
I am very impressed with the twoothTimer! Its such a great idea and and easy way to brush for 2 minutes. I luv that it is shaped like a tooth! My kids have been using it every day since it arrived! I must say that their teeth are cleaner and there has been no fighting about how long they have to brush their teeth. They use to run in the bathroom and brush maybe a minute or less. 
Now I know they are brushing for the 2 full minutes cuz i can hear the bell ring!
This is a wonderful product. I like that it was invented by a mom!

Easy to use! Simply turn the top to the ‘2’ and begin brushing. Stop brushing when the bell rings after two minutes. No batteries needed. Helps reduce dental bills by improving dental hygiene.

Woolite® Extra Dark Care

I was so excited to be picked by Crowdtap for this sample and share!!
This is what i got to share with my family and friends!

I received 10 samples of the Woolite Dark Care!

Designed for your jeans and dark clothes, the WOOLITE EXTRA DARK CARE DUAL Formula cleans all types of fabrics while keeping dark colors bold and vivid. The special formula won't cause fading, shape loss, and fiber damage so your clothes last longer. Designed for use in all regular and high-efficiency washing machines, the liquid detergent dissolves quickly so it does not leave any unwanted residue on your clothes.

Thorough Wash and Gentle Care for All Fabrics
Whether it's your favorite jeans or your little black dress, the EXTRA DARK CARE DUAL 
Formula is  ideal  for removing everyday dirt and stains from all your darks. 
It won't cause shrinking and shape loss of sensitive fabrics like wool, silk, 
and cotton. Designed for use in both regular and high-efficiency washing machines, 
the detergent works for all wash cycles and temperatures so 
you can easily follow the cleaning and care instructions on clothes labels. 
(Tip: wash new clothing separately the first time.)
Extra Color Protection for Dark Fabrics
The WOOLITE EXTRA DARK CARE DUAL Formula offers a gentle, effective detergent that protects 
dark colors from fading during the wash. Dark fabrics will keep their original intense color and 
stay vivid for a longer period of time. The liquid detergent is easy to measure and does 
not leave any powdery residue.
No Harsh Chemicals for Longer-Lasting Clothes
Specifically formulated without harsh, abrasive chemicals, the EXTRA DARK CARE DUAL 
Formula cleans the delicate fibers of your clothing. Since it is difficult to restore faded 
colors and damaged fabrics, it is important to use it every time you wash your clothes. 
You can turn your clothing inside out before tossing it in the washing machine to prevent 
snags and protect from rubbing against machine walls.
About WOOLITE: Special Care for All Fabrics

from recycled materials whenever possible. WOOLITE detergents are effective in cold water,

My family and I used the Woolite Dark care on our clothes and give it a 5 out of 5. 
Using the Woolite Extra Dark Care preserved black and dark clothes much better than regular 
detergent. We used it on dark jeans! It was very easy to use. Each sample packet was good for one load

The Many Uses of Ivory

Ivory Bar Soap

Free of dyes and heavy perfumes, Ivory provides a simple, yet effective clean for the entire family (without breaking the bank!).

Ivory bar soap is 99.44% pure (it floats!).  Beyond using it as a body cleanser, many of Ivory's loyal users – not to mention a few celebrities – swear by Ivory as their beauty secret. In fact, many consumers use Ivory bar soap as a facial cleanser.  It provides healthier, smoother and more even-looking skin. Also, its versatility makes it an effective laundry soap (just chip soap flakes into the washer) as well as a spot stain remover on your clothes (including delicate items). Ivory bars can even be used for a fun soap carving project with the family!  

When it comes to motherhood,  Ivory (the clean & simple soap) knows that being a mom has become more complex than ever, and that moms are looking for ways to simplify their lives. According to a survey of 1,000+ moms conducted by Wakefield Research on Ivory’s behalf in October 2011, 80% of American moms think motherhood is more complicated today than it was 20 years ago, despite the thousands of items supposedly designed to “simplify” their lives. But, while they may be more stressed out and busier than ever, almost 90% of moms think they’re doing a better job balancing it all than their mothers did. Some other interesting stats:

· 30% of moms surveyed found the most complicated aspect of motherhood was finding more "me" time, 66% confessed to hiding in their bathroom for some alone time.
· 75% feel the pressure to make every outing, playdate, or experience a "teachable moment," which can create great pressure
· 70% of moms feel they don’t have everything together, despite others thinking that they do.

As a result of these findings, Ivory created a Facebook community where everyday moms can share tips with one another on ways to simplify life for themselves and their families.   

Find your Ivory now at your nearest retailer, including stores such as Walmart and Target as well as any major grocery, dollar and drug store.  A 10-pack of Ivory bar soap retails for around  $4.49 (bath bar size).

My family and I have never had better feeling skin Ivory left our skin fresh and clean. !
My Family and I used The Ivory Bar soaps as a Body Cleanser and as a  Facial Cleanser
We like that its so pure it floats. The kiddos had to test and see that the bar of soap really floated! 
They were very surprized!
The best feature about Ivory is the price! 
We give the Ivory a 5 out of 5.
We liked the scent and the way it made our skin feel after a shower.
