CSN Review!

I have mentioned CSN numerous times before. If you havent heard of them yet CSN is a online shopping site which has over 200 online stores where you can find everything from toys, cookware, bar stools, bedding, & so much more. You can check out all the stores here!


After browsing the site for hours I decided to get Hailee a sandbox she has been asking for one forever. We choose the Step2 Naturally Playful Sand & Water Activity Center. Its one of the many products that ships free to!

On each product page you can view the likeliness of shipping damage as well as reviews from previous customers!

I love CSN not only for the large variety of products but also because of the great prices.

Curél® Itch Defense Press Release

KEEP SUMMER SKIN HEALTHY AND ITCH-FREE
WITH ITCH DEFENSE SKIN BALANCING MOISTURE LOTION FOR DRY ITCHY SKIN
FROM THE CURÉL® SKINCARE EXPERTS

THINK: Soothing replenishment for dry, itch-prone summer skin.

WHAT IT IS: Instant itch relief. From sun exposure to splashing in the sea, the summer elements sap skin of essential moisture—causing dryness, flakiness, and often itching. Replenish hydration and soothe the symptoms of dryness this summer with Curél® Itch Defense Skin Balancing Moisture Lotion for Dry Itchy Skin, a revolutionary solution to the irritation that causes itching. The breakthrough formula rebalances four essential components of healthy skin, restoring skin to its natural moisture levels:

Humectants and Emollients boost moisturization and leave skin feeling protected
Natural Ceramides restore skin’s barrier function and regulate skin’s ability to hold moisture
Accelerated Cellular Turnover minimizes dry, flaky skin and smoothes the skin’s surface, balancing the dry skin cycle
Balanced pH levels return skin to a healthy equilibrium

By fundamentally rebalancing skin, Curél® Itch Defense moisture lotion relieves dryness and itching instantly and stops the cycle of itchy dryness in the long term. In fact, 90% of women who tried the formula saw a noticeable improvement in their skin over the course of one week.

“When moisture is pulled out of the skin by harsh summer elements, the resulting dryness can be very uncomfortable,” explains Dr. Sapna Westley, Curel Skincare Consulting Dermatologist. “It’s important to not only replenish that lost moisture, but also soothe the effects of dryness. I recommend Curél® Itch Defense moisture lotion to patients who need both itch relief and deep hydration."

In addition to passing eight different safety tests, the Curél® Itch Defense moisture lotion is dermatologist-tested, pediatrician-tested, and allergist-tested.  The fragrance free formula also includes additional anti-itch ingredients that are clinically proven to reduce irritation, redness, flare-ups and itching. Panthenol soothes redness and irritation while antioxidant-rich Olive Oil helps skin retain moisture and treats eczema; and Shea Butter reduces irritation and softens skin. The formula employs a dermatologist- and skin scientist-recognized moisture mechanism to treat symptoms associated with eczema, including protective petrolatum and humectant glycerin.

WHAT IT COSTS: $7.99

LOOPZ™ Review!


I had recently posted a press release of a new game from Mattel called LOOPZ™. It is a fun game that consists of memory, music & motion!

LOOPZ™ has 7 different game modes that use sensors to track your motions. You can play by yourself or with up to 4 players.

My favorite game is Repeat the Beat, the lights flash & you repeat them!
Objective:

Repeat an ever-increasing pattern of lights.

One light will flash. Repeat it by waving your hand through the matching loop. If you’re correct, Loopz™ will replay the light and add one more to the sequence. Keep repeating the pattern as long as you can. If you make 3 mistakes on a level, the game ends.

When you successfully complete an entire sequence (10 prompts), you automatically advance to the next level. The higher the level, the more complicated the patterns get, but each pattern will always be 10 prompts long.

To Win The Game: Complete all 3 levels. No matter how far you get, Loopz™ will award you a medal based on your performance.


You can also play Reflex Master™, Rhythm & Flow™, Musicology™, Freestyle DJ™, Music Studio & Versus Mode.

We play LOOPZ™ at all of our get togethers & on game night! Its such a fun game, we normally play in the dark to make it more interesting because the lights show better! The guys normally play Reflex Master & try to beat each others scores. My brother in law has the highest score so far!

LOOPZ™ is very easy to work & I highly recommend playing it!

BusyBodyBook Review & Giveaway!


I am in love with BusyBodyBook planners!!

I have always written all my to do's & such on a small calendar. The space is limited & it just gets to cluttered with appointments. With the BusyBodyBook planner I can keep track of my photography appointments, Hailees Cheerleading practices & games, bill due dates, & her school activities!

I love the different parts of the book & the fact that its a 2 yr planner! Month at a glace is great for the bill due dates. The weekly Grid helps keep track of my other scheduling! You can record record birthdays & anniversaries which is great for me because I forget everyones birthdays!!
