A Precautionary Giveaway

Posted by mommywiz on September 28, 2009

You’ve been to the mall and seen those moms who lather up their kids with anti-bacterial gel as soon as they’re done on the play equipment, yes?  They wipe down the shopping carts and everywhere their kid will touch.  They freak out when someone sneezes and they do their best to hoard the elevator, all the while holding their breath.

I used to laugh at those parents, but now that flu season is around the corner, I am slowly becoming one of them.
We still go to the mall and to the park.  I still “allow” my kids the freedom of using their sense of “touch” BUT I make them wash their hands as SOON as they’re done and they’re not allowed to touch their face or mine until their hands have been cleansed of germs.  I’m trying really hard not to be neurotic!

I am not afraid of the common cold.  In my opinion, the standard viruses that kids pick up at school serve to makes them stronger.  I want my kids to have strong immune systems.  But I don’t want them to be horribly miserable for a week or more!  Because I’ve had the flu.  I had the flu so bad in college in fact that I was out of commission for several days.  I should have been hospitalized!  After days of complete misery, I ended up with pneumonia and I was so sick I wanted to die.  I cannot imagine having to care for a child in that condition!!  I will not have it.

So, I’m using my common sense and taking the basic precautions!  And so should you.
In order to help you, my readers, stay on top of the flu this season, I am doing a giveaway!

Avon has added a new line of anti-bacterials gels to their Naturals line.  They now have SCENTED anti-bacterial gels.  They come in Vanilla, Cucumber Melon, and Peach!

That is my giveaway to you.

A set of all three, just for you!

New Dove Nutrium Moisture Body Wash

Posted by mommywiz on August 30, 2009

I’ve been using this product for about a month now. Dove sent me THREE bottles to try out and do a review! Did I mention that I love blogging?! LEV0902-GRP_BOTTLES_DRY

The three bottles of nourishing body wash I got were a deep moisture, one for sensitive skin, and one for gentle exfoliating.

I must say, I’ve used other body washes before, and it’s so true what they say in their commercial, that other body washes just “sit” on your skin.

Have you ever come out of the shower feeling slimy? Like you never quite got it all off? I hate that feeling! After a while, that gets old so I go back to using soap, again.

But with this body wash, it’s completely different. There is no “slimy residue” when you come out of the shower… and my favorite part is how nicely it lather’s up. There’s nothing worse than lame, non-lathering body wash, am I right?

The commercial says that only “Dove, [this body wash], contains the ground breaking formula called NutriumMoisture which is soybean oil and natural lipids that can nourish deep down. Whatever it has in it, it’s true. After using it for a month, my skin doesn’t feel all dried out like it has when using other body washes. I couldn’t embed the video, but you have to go here to view it.

I really, really liked this body wash and I highly recommend that you used it. I’ve been meaning to go to the store and see how much a bottle costs, but I keep forgetting. Since I have three bottles, I won’t be running out any time soon! But whatever the cost, I will say it’s probably worth it. And if you don’t like scented body washes, the one for sensitive skin is even unscented. They sure got it all covered, huh?

Try it out and come let me know how you liked it!

Thanks, Dove, for a fabulous product and the opportunity to try it out!
