Skin MD Review/Giveaways

THIS GIVEAWAY
HAS ENDED!






OUR REVIEW
Skin MD sent me their Natural Shielding Lotion to review. I was interested in this review mostly because of my husbands skin condition. He has Psoriasis and it can be very uncomfortable if it is not controlled. Applying the Shielding lotion along with his regular medication has helped improve certain areas of his skin.

Upon using it the first time it was smooth but not oily. You don't need very much because it spreads nicely on your skin. As a mom, I love this product for my hands especially because they tend to be the most dry in the winter. I would definitely recommend this product for skin care because it has worked so well for us. Some of the great things I would point out about this Skin MD's Skin Shielding Lotion, is that it is Paraben free, fragrance free and hypoallergenic. My favorite ingredient in this product is Aloe Vera, which has always been a product my family has used, over the years.

More information from Skin MD's website:

"Shielding lotion is a lotion that forms a protective barrier on the skin and keeps out irritants and chemicals. It also allows the natural oils and moisture to remain in the skin so it can heal better. It is a big advantage that shielding lotions are light and go on without a greasy mess," says Dr. Brian Zogg, a dermatologist in Albert Lea, MN

Tropical Traditions Review/Giveaways

THIS GIVEAWAY HAS ENDED!


My Review:

I was given chance to review another product from Tropical Traditions. I had mentioned earlier in my first Tropcial Traditions review that I loved their Tropical Traditions Virgin Coconut Oil when I used it for cooking. So when they offered me the opportunity to try out another one of their products of course I immediately replied that I would. I was given their Citrus Scented Moisturizing Cream to review. When I am pregnant and especially in the winter I have very dry skin on my hands. I also wash many dishes each day and wash my hands several times throughout the day, so that contributes to my dry skin conditions. When I first tried their moisturizer it was definitely creamy. I rubbed it in well and the great thing is that you don't have to use much. It was absorbed by my dry skin and my skin felt softer and supple. I love it so much that I also rub it on my growing belly!

I love the Citrus scent and I look forward to using more Tropical Traditions products!
The fact that there is no alcohols, artificial fragrances or petroleum in their products made me comfortable enough to use it on my kids skin.

The ingredients are: purified water, organic virgin coconut oil, plant based emulsifying wax, palm stearic, grapefruit seed extract, organic beeswax, organic virgin palm oil, and organic essential oils of orange, mandarin, spearmint, lemon, grapefruit, lemongrass, and tangerine.


Referral Program: Tropical Traditions has a great referral program that anyone can take part in! Once you have placed your initial order, you are then eligible to earn free products by referring your friends or blog readers to them as well.

About the founders:

The founders of Tropical Traditions are Brian and Marianita Shilhavy.

Brian W. Shilhavy, BA, MA
Brian earned his Bachelor of Arts degree in Bible/Greek from Moody Bible Institute in Chicago, and his Master of Arts degree in linguistics from Northeastern Illinois University in Chicago. He is currently the CEO of Tropical Traditions, Inc.

Marianita Jader Shilhavy, BS, CND (Certified Nutritionist/Dietician in the Philippines) earned her bachelor of science degree in nutrition in Manila. Understanding the nutrition of Filipino foods, Marianita worked for over eight years as a hospital dietician and nutritional counselor in the Philippines.

In 1998 Brian and Marianita returned to the Philippines with their three children and renovated Marianita's old family farmhouse. By this time the coconut industry was severely depressed due to the negative U.S. campaigns against tropical oils in the 1980s and 1990s. Coconut farmers could no longer support their families on the income generated from harvesting coconuts.

Minnie’s Bow-tique



Minnie’s Bow Story


Minnie’s Pajama Party




Our Review:

Our kids love Mickey and Minnie, they have yet to go to any Disney theme parks, but we have taken them to Disney on Ice two years ago. They loved the glimpse of the Disney experience that they had with Disney on Ice. Watching this movie was pure joy for my Minnie Mouse lovin' girls! They enjoyed this 96 minute DVD and love that they now have it in their collection. We just received it for review last week and it's been played more than a dozen times. Our 6 year-old loves the magnetic bow frame and set that are included. This movie is another addition to our family movie collection and it will definitely be cherished for years to come.

For Immediate Release:

MINNIE MOUSE STARS IN NEW DISNEY DVD OUT FEBRUARY 9, 2010
MICKEY MOUSE CLUBHOUSE: MINNIE’S BOW-TIQUE

Includes Four Minnie-Themed Adventures Plus A Never-Before-Seen* Episode and a Delightful Minnie Magnet Bow Frame

BURBANK, Calif., November 6, 2009 – For the first time ever, Minnie Mouse will star in Mickey Mouse Clubhouse: Minnie’s Bow-tique when it comes to Disney DVD on February 9, 2010. This new release features four Minnie-themed stories including a never-before-seen episode and a fun Minnie magnet bow frame. Two episodes, ‘Minnie’s Pajama Party,’ and ‘Minnie’s Bee Story’, include Disney’s Adventure Mode – an interactive game using the remote control with multiple play levels. It's the grand opening of Minnie's Bow-tique, a store jam-packed with every kind of bow and bowtie imaginable. The selections include: the "Glow-Bow", a bow that changes color with every mood; the "Grow-Bow", a bow that grows to tremendous size by just adding water; flying "Butterfly-Bows"; and a "Photo-Bow" that snaps instant pictures. Problems arise when Pete, embarrassed about buying a lady's bow for his favorite aunt, causes a few accidental mishaps in the new store.

However, super salesperson Minnie finds the perfect bow for Pete. The Bow-tique's grand opening is a success - and it all ends in a Big Bow Show with the Clubhouse gang modeling the latest fashions under the biggest bow of all, a colorful, sky-high Rain-Bow.

In a never-before-seen episode, Minnie’s Pajama Party Minnie and the girls set up a fun Pajama Party sleepover for the day – but it’s not as easy as it sounds, especially with the addition of Pete and Willie the Giant!

Air Bud: Golden RECEIVER-Special Edition DVD


On Tuesday February 2nd, 2010 Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment will release AIR BUD: GOLDEN RECEIVER Special Edition on DVD! This time out, Buddy, the hoop-shooting, hotshot canine, tackles a new sport—football. This special edition DVD features exclusive all-new bonus action: Sports Channel play-by-play quarterbacked by the Buddies!


AIR BUD: GOLDEN RECEIVER SPECIAL EDITION DVD

Our Review- Our family loves sports, and animals so what better a combination than this fun-filled movie featuring both Football and a wonderful dog. They were amazed at the skills that Air Bud had in this movie and enjoyed every minute of action and humor that this film has a great amount of. As for me, I can't really enjoy kiddie movies but this is one movie that I must say I did enjoy. The bonus features on the DVD, "The Buddies Sports Channel" was a fun finale to the DVD, and unfortunately due to my sensitive ears I had to hide the whistle and put it away for the summer, which we will use for some relay races with our kids. This is a great DVD for the kids to watch during the Superbowl, I am planning on letting our kids watch this during the Superbowl.




DVD FACT SHEET

Studio:

Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment

Story:

Now you can kick off all-star family fun with the heartwarming Air Bud: Golden Receiver Special Edition, featuring exclusive all-new bonus action: Sports Channel play-by-play quarterbacked by the Buddies! This time out, Buddy, the hoop-shooting, hotshot canine, tackles a new sport—football. When his teenage owner reluctantly becomes the school’s new quarterback, Buddy catches the spirit and joins the team. Soon, the two find themselves leading the Timberwolves to the state championship. But victory hopes are sidelined when two sinister Russian circus owners take a bite out of everyone’s plans and dognap Buddy for their star attraction. Give three cheers for Disney’s hilarious hit that goes the whole nine yards for outrageous fun and adventure.
