ADOVIA Dead Sea Mud Shampoo Review

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

    I recently tried ADOVIA Purifying Dead Sea Facial Mud Mask and was very happy with the way it made my pores look so clean. I am still using the great facial mud mask a couple times a week. So, when I got picked to try their Dead Sea Mud Shampoo I got really excited waiting for it to arrive! I wasn't sure what to expect from a Mud Shampoo; I had thoughts of smelly, thick, heavy mud. I can happily report that is not what I got. 

Here is a description of ADOVIA Dead Sea Mud Shampoo from ADOVIA:

   Adovia's Dead Sea Mud Shampoo is specially formulated with ingredients such as Dead Sea Mud, Chamomille & Olive Oil to bring a deep hydration and moisture to the scalp, relieving itching and flakiness. Dead Sea Mud has been known for centuries for it's healing properties and people travel from all over the world to come and experience it's effects at the Dead Sea. Dead Sea Salts and Mud have been featured on CNN, in the Wall Street Journal and New York Times. Dead Sea Mud contains the highest concentration of minerals found in mud anywhere in the world. Finally the benefits of Dead Sea mud and salt are presented to you in a shampoo form! These minerals are essential for proper skin function and to help regulate moisture retention as well as hydration.

 Now for what I think of the ADOVIA Dead Sea Mud Shampoo.

 At first I thought the scent was too strong, but as I lathered my hair with it in the shower I started to really enjoy the scent. It smells kind of spicy to me and I really like it! It doesn't smell like other medicated shampoos that I have tried before. It has a scent that both women and men will like. The Dead Sea Mud shampoo lathered up nicely. I did need to use a pretty good amount of the shampoo to get my long hair nice and clean but, I have to do that with most shampoos that I use. I like that the shampoo didn't tangle my hair and it rinsed clean. I used my usual conditioner on my hair after I washed with the Dead Sea Mud shampoo. I am happy with the way my hair looks and feels after washing with this shampoo. My scalp isn't tight or itchy and was easy to style as usual. 

You can find ADOVIA Dead Sea Mud Shampoo on for $23.00 or at Cleopatra's Choice.

Rush Hour Jr. Traffic Jam Logic Game Review

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

 I recently got picked to try and review a great kids logic game: Rush Hour Jr. by ThinkFun. I had never seen or heard of this logic game until now however, I am a big fan of all kinds of games. We love to play board games, video games and card games and I really like it when a game gets the kids to think while they are having fun! That is exactly what happened when we played Rush Hour Jr.!

 Rush Hour Jr. is a fun problem solving, single player, game for kids ages 5 & up.....I had fun, too! The goal is to get the ice cream truck out of a rush hour traffic jam. You do this by picking a card and positioning the car game pieces on the board with the ice cream truck in the position that is shown on the card that you picked. Then you shift the game pieces that are blocking the path for the ice cream truck forwards or backwards or up and down the game board so the ice creak truck can move off the board. You win when once you can slide the ice cream truck out the exit on the game board.

 The levels of the challenge goes from easy, medium, hard to super hard. I have to tell you that I tried a medium card and didn't get the ice cream truck out of the traffic jam. Let me tell you that the kids will never let me forget that I couldn't do it the first try. I had a blast trying the game and the kids laughed so hard when I lost. They could not wait to show me how it is done...right! I love that Rush Hour Jr. gets them excited and makes them (and me) think when we play it. 

 There is more to this game than just fun for the kids. It helps them with being able to focus and pay attention, to look at a problem (the game board) and think through the steps to solving the problem so they can win the game. Finally, the confidence that they gain by sliding that ice cream truck off the game board makes them want to try the harder levels. I know that this will be a favorite game in the house from now on.

These socks are made with no elastic or synthetics. The seamless design helps to improve comfort, reduce binding and eliminate skin irritation. Wearever currently offers three styles of comfortable socks.

As the temperature and humidity rises in the summer my ankles and feet start to swell....a lot. These are the first socks that I have tried that don't cut into my skin. I can keep them on all day long. I usually have to take my other socks off during the afternoon to get some relief. I don't have to do that with the Wearever Socks By Buster Brown!

Healing Tree Bamboo Charcoal Soap Review & Giveaway

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

 I have to admit that I have never even heard of Bamboo Charcoal Soap before I got the package from The Healing Tree. However, I am always ready to try something new. 

 I found out that the Healing Tree Bamboo Charcoal Soap is high in absorbency so it helps to draw the dirt deep down from inside the pores. Unlike the normal soap that just cleans the top surface of our skin. This helps to free up a lot of dirt that clogs our pores deep beneath the skin especially if you have acne, eczema, psoriasis or dry/cracked skin.     

 Bamboo charcoal undergoes a firing process of 1,800 F to create high absorbency properties that make it 4x more absorbent than wood charcoal. As, a result it cleanses your skin by removing years of accumulated dead skin cells. Once your pores are reopened, your skin will begin to breathe again and naturally moisturize itself. 

 The Healing Tree Bamboo Charcoal soap is made with 4 simple ingredients: Vegetable Oil, Water, Glycerin and Bamboo Charcoal. NO harmful chemicals! It retails for $3.99 for a single bar.

 Here are some of the benefits of Bamboo Charcoal Soap:

  • Natural Ingrerients
  • Hypoallergenic
  • Removes Dead Skin Cells
  • Unclogs Pores
  • Smoother Skin
  • Detoxifying
  • Fragrance Free

Now for what I think of the Healing Tree Bamboo Charcoal soap

 I really like it! I like the way it lathered well, it rinsed clean and didn't leave any residue on my skin. It didn't make my skin dry, tight or itchy. The skin on my face was a little red and shiny after I used the soap, but that is what happens with my skin most of the time. It settled down after a few minutes. I haven't used it long enough to know if it will make a difference with my skin. I don't believe anything makes a huge difference with a few weeks of use. I will keep using the Healing Tree Bamboo Charcoal  soap.

 A little something about The Healing Tree: 

 It is a family owned business since 2004. They opened a new division in 2011 and began creating their own unique brands of natural relief products made with Bamboo Charcoal Technology. They offer a refund if you are not satisfied with their products within 30 days of purchase. 

 They have a couple great charity programs, also!

Purex Crystals Dryer Sheets Review & Giveaway

 I recently tried the New Purex Crystal Dryer Sheets that I received as part of The Purex Insiders. I was a little scared, at first, that the scent was going to be too strong for me when I opened the box. I prefer a subtle scent on my clothes after they are washed and dried.

 I was pleasantly surprised with these fabric softener sheets (Fresh Spring Waters scent) they left a nice subtle scent. They reduce static cling, repel lint and even help repel pet hairs. Purex says they give 30 days of long-lasting freshness. However, all I can say is that it has been over a week since I used them and my clothes still smell nice and fresh.

 Purex Crystal Dryer Sheets come in 2 scents:

  • Lavender Blossom
  • Fresh Spring Waters

 The Purex Crystals Dryer Sheets can also be used around your house to keep it smelling fresh! I like to put one under the seat in both of our vehicles. This makes it smell nice instead of like gas fumes. In the house I use them in the bottom of the garbage cans, clothes hamper and in the linen closets.

NEW Purex No Sort for Colors Detergent Review & Giveaway

 Doing laundry has just gotten easier for me! I can wash my towels all together with no sorting according to light and dark colors. I don't have to worry about a stray black sock getting mixed in with my yellow towels anymore, which has happened before. Yikes!

 I can do this without having color bleeding accidents with the help of the New Purex No Sort for Colors Detergent. This is the latest laundry innovation from the Purex brand that was designed to simplify the laundry routine. It features a breakthrough Anti-Color-Transfer Technology that traps loose dyes in the wash and doesn't let them transfer onto the other clothes in the load.

 There will be no sorting laundry anymore here before putting a load into the washing machine. My towels came out bright and clean after washing with the Purex No Sort Detergent. They were soft and fluffy, too. I do suggest that you use caution when washing strong colored fabrics or new pieces of clothing, especially new denim jeans. I would still wash those separately at least five times before doing a mixed color load with Purex No Sort Detergent.

 Now lets have a giveaway! 3 winners will receive 1 free product coupon for Purex No Sort for Colors Detergent, maximum value of $6.00.
