As a teenager I hardly broke out. I would get one or two pimples and that was it. Now that I am 32 I have had more acne breakouts than I have ever had in my life. My teenage daughter would tease me and say ” Mom shouldn’t I be the one needing acne creams instead of you?” I didn’t know wether to laugh or cry everytime I saw my face. This whole acne thing wasn’t just one or two breakouts either it had been going on for months and months. I kept trying all kinds of different acne creams that my target and walmart carried to see if any would solve my problem. I was just about ready to give up on this acne battle when Dermagist asked me if I would be interested in reviewing one of their products. By the way Dermagist has all kinds of skin care products to suit your needs, such as Anti- aging and Wrinkle products, Acne-prone skin products and Daily maintenance products.
Can you guess what I chose to review? If you haven’t guessed already I chose to review Dermagist’s Ultimate Clarifying System. I could not wait to try out the Acne Clarifying Cream,the Detoxifying Cleanser for Acne Prone Skin and last but not least Acne Scar Fading Cream. What I immediately liked about the Ultimate clarifying system was that it targets Acne Breakouts naturally while trying to reduce redness and irritation with Resveratrol, Glycolic Acid, Niacinamide, Aloe and Chamomile. You would be surprised how much Aloe and Chamomile can make a difference. Many of the acne products I tried before would dry my face and I would end up with some of my skin peeling if that makes any sense to you guys.
I started with the Detoxifying cleanser with Resveratrol which is an oil free cleanser that exfoliates dead skin cells and removes excess oil and impurities. Right away I noticed that my face felt fresh and clean. I didn’t feel the oily skin that I have been feeling lately. I then started using the Clarifying cream. The clarifying cream I put on in the morning after making sure my face was clean and in the evening. I also used the acne scar fading cream twice, once in the morning and once in the evening.
I started noticing after a few days that the acne I had on my face was not as red and some of the pimples didn’t hurt as much. In a week I noticed that the pimples werent as big as they were before. I also noticed that I was not waking up everyday with new pimples like it had been happening before I started using the Ultimate Clarifying system. Three weeks after using the ultimate clarifying system I noticed my face had about 2 pimples instead of a whole face full of pimples.
I am grateful to have been given the opportunity to try out Dermagist’s ultimate clarifying system. I can now go out with my friends without being embarrassed about how my face looks. I am also starting to let friends and family take pictures of me, I had stopped taking pictures when my face started breaking out. It’s amazing how much more confidence I feel now that my face isn’t covered with acne. Check out my pictures to see the difference Dermagist made on my face.

If you know me or read my blog you know that I have six kids. I also have my sister-inlaw and my inlaws staying with us for a bit too. You can only imagine what a mess my floor must be with all the traffic that goes through it. I try to mop every other day because if I go more than two days without mopping you won’t believe the gunk that gets on the tile.
My twins learned to walk a few months ago and although they know how to walk they still like to crawl. I am very finicky when it comes to germs.You can only imagine the state of panic I feel everytime I see the babies crawling and then putting their little hands in their mouths.
I got the opportunity of a lifetime by being asked if I would like to review The Gruene Steam mop and Steam cleaner. Who in their right mind would turn down the chance to review a awesome steam cleaner? Not only does the steam cleaner clean my floor but it sanitizes it too. I had been eyeing steam cleaners for quite a while but I didnt want to purchase a steam cleaner that I would have to constantly buy cleaning solution for it to work. The Gruene steam cleaner worked with water. YES you read that right, just using water cleans and sanatizes the floor !!! I have been trying to be more eco friendly and this Steam cleaner and Steam mop is very eco friendly. The Gruene steam cleaner becomes portable so you can use it in your stoves , sinks , bathrooms and any other place that needs to be steam cleaned!!
I fell in love with the Gruene steam cleaner (don’t tell hubby though he might get jealous lol) for giving me peace of mind about letting my babies crawl on the floor.
Take a look at the video below to see the Gruene Steam mop at work.
If you have been reading my blog you know that I have six kids. The one thing that you will always find in my purse is some hand sanitizer.There are times when a bathroom is not around and I am a big germaphobe. If my kids are at the playground or somewhere where there is no immediate access to a place where they can wash their hands I make sure they at least use the hand sanitzer before eating or touching the babies.
I recently got the opportunity to try out a hand sanitzer made by Deb and I loved it. The hand sanitizer kills 99.90% of germs and that is good for me. It is also dye and fragrance free which is good because my kids are sensitive to some perfumes. I love that the little foam goes along way and didnt leave my kids or my hands sticky. Check out my video below.
The holidays are coming alot sooner than I expected them to.Time has been flying for me and this time I have made it a priority to get my season’s greetings cards made on time. The only problem is that I can’t ever find nice cards that look good enough to send out. I had decided that this year I wanted to send out Photo Christmas Cards.
To my surprise I was recently asked if I would like to review holiday cards from Pear Tree Greetings.com. I of course agreed because I am looking for some nice christmas cards. I had thought to myself what better way to make my decision about what cards I want to get,than to see samples of them.
I tend to be picky when I am making my selections only because I am starting to go green. I always want to make sure that what I am buying can be or has been recycled. I was glad to see that these 100lb matte card stock is post-consumer recycled. I like the different selections that are available,and I love the prices on their cards. As you all know I am a mother of 6 kids and one thing I always look at is prices. These cards are very well priced at 1.25 per card or even better there are some cards that are .84 cents per card.

I was recently asked if I would like to participate in a product review for dental floss. I happily agreed to participate because I try to take care of my teeth and my kids teeth as much as I can. Imagine my surprise when the dental floss that I was given to try out was excatly what I have been searching for all these years
The Dentek complete clean floss is a thin dental string that is made of two thin strings twisted together. You might think well its two strings twisted together so its going to be thick but it isnt thick at all. The dental floss is even thinner than most dental floss strings out there. Trust me I have been looking for thin dental floss for a long time since my teeth are so closs together.
The dentek complete clean has this fresh mint flavor that left my mouth feeling even cleaner than it did before. I am so happy to have been able to try this dental floss because now that I know that there is thin dental floss out there that doesnt hurt my gums I am going to be stocking up on it.
