Do you have sensitive teeth? If your answer is yes, you should check out the new Crest Sensi-Stop Strips available at Walmart. The way these work is simple. You just apply a Crest Sensi-Stop Strip to your sensitive tooth for a quick 10 minutes for immediate relief and up to one month of protection.

For this review, I received a pack of Crest Sensi-Stop Strips to try them for myself. I have been suffering from sensitive teeth lately and so I was anxious to give it a try. I am particularly sensitive to cold. It’s hard to explain the feeling that I get from the tooth sensitivity, but I can tell you that it just hurts for me to watch someone take a bite out of a popsicle. While this sensitivity hasn’t caused me to stop eating any particular foods, it has made me very careful in the way I eat certain cold foods. If I can avoid biting it directly with my front teeth, then that’s what I do.

As you can see the Sensi-Stop Strips are packaged like a white strip. Only, these strips are much smaller, so you can concentrate it on one area. I found that they aren’t overly gooey or anything. I put it on and it stays on just fine.

So far I am impressed with these strips. While I haven’t tried to bite into a popsicle, I haven’t noticed the sensitivity in my teeth since I started using them. I am going to keep trying them awhile longer and give you another update to let you know how they are working.

Buy it: You can find new Crest Sensi-Stop Strips at an everyday low price at Walmart.

Win it: One of you will win a $25 Walmart gift card so that you can try Crest Sensi-Stop Strips for yourself. Please enter through the Rafflecopter below. It may take 30 seconds or more to load.

Ferrara Candy Lemonhead Prize Pack Giveaway (Ends 9/28)

lemonheads

Are you ready for a giveaway? Get ready to pucker up because I want to talk to you about Lemonhead Candy.

Did you know that the first Ferrara candy rolled off the line and into stores over 100 years ago, (1908 to be exact)? Lemonhead came on the scene later in 1962. I had no idea. I also didn’t know that Ferrara is the #1 non-chocolate candy manufacturer in the US. What I did know is that it had been awhile since I had tasted Lemonhead candy, but then this epic package arrived at my door. You can see all the sweet goodness that was in the box in the photo. You may notice the updated Lemonhead packaging with a fresher, updated look. You may also notice a new product: Lemonhead Gummies. My kids actually went for these first. I went for the classic Lemonhead box. When I took my first bite, the nostalgia kicked in. I remembered eating these when I was a kid and making that super sour face followed by a “yum”. Yep. They’ve still got it.

Would you like to win a prize pack of Lemonhead Candy? If so, please enter through the Rafflecopter below. It may take 30 seconds or more to load.

Welcome Fall Into Your Home with Febreze Fall Home Harvest Collection #FebrezeFall

febreze fall home harvest collection
Fall is one of my favorite seasons. I love the sights and smells that come with fall. I love the cooler weather it brings, watching the leaves change color and all the yummy beverages that accompany it such as apple cider, pumpkin lattes, you get the idea. To help me get ready for fall this year, I was sent a fun Febreze Fall Home Harvest Collection Kit. Isn’t the barn box just adorable? My daughter loves it.

Febreze Home Harvest Collection items
In the box was a Febreze Noticables Warmer with two fragrances (Sandalwood/Chai and Vanilla/Sugar) and a Febreze scent for the Car in Toasted Almond as well as a fun recipe box full of Fall craft ideas and recipes to try. I immediately set up the fragrances in my home and the vent clip in my car. I love that Febreze truly eliminates odors so your guests only notice the freshness of fall.

coffee float recipe card
Since I am a bit of a coffee-holic, I chose to try this recipe card from my Febreze activity box: Make an Iced Coffee Float. Yum! For those of you who like to copy and paste recipes, I’ll type this one up for you below so that you can make it yourself. It’s quite the delicious treat. You can see how mine turned out in the picture below. Heavenly.

Iced Coffee Float Recipe

ICED COFFEE FLOAT

What you need: 8 ounces of coffee and vanilla ice cream.

1. Brew coffee as you normally would.
2. Place an 8 oz. cup of coffee into the freezer to cool for about 10 minutes. You don’t want it to be hot, so somewhere between warm and cold is perfect.
3. Take your favorite glass, and scoop two heaping scoops of ice cream. You can try it using your favorite ice cream flavor too.
4. Pour your coffee over the ice cream and enjoy!

Thanks to Febreze, I am now officially ready for fall. Are you ready? Shop the Febreze Fall Collection at Walmart. You can also keep up with Febreze on Facebook and Twitter.

What scents remind you of Fall? Leave me a comment below letting me know.

NeoCell Beauty Bursts Gourmet Collagen Chews Review & Giveaway (Ends 9/28)

neocell beauty bursts
I believe that beautiful skin comes from the inside out. The things we eat, drink and the products we put on our skin all play a part in how our skin looks and feels. If you’re getting a little older, like me (*ahem*) you may be starting to notice some changes in your face. I am sadly noticing some little lines here and there and maybe a some dark circles under the eyes. While I try to eat healthy, there’s only so much a gal can do on her own. When I was offered the chance to try NeoCell Beauty Bursts I jumped at the chance as I had heard great things about them. They were featured in Glamour Magazine after all.

These chews deliver high absorption beauty nutrients in the form of a chew. Each chew contains Collagen Type 1 & 3 which is the body’s beauty protein & strengthens skin, hair & nails.  Also in the list of ingredients is Hyaluronic Acid is know as “Nature’s Moisturizer” for skin hydration.  Lastly, in the chews you will find Vitamin C, which  is essential to boosting collagen in the skin. These chews are gluten, soy and palm oil free and they are all natural and delicious.

I chose the Chocolate Mint flavor, but they also offer a Fruit  Punch flavor. One bag holds 60 soft chews which is a one month supply. I was taking it two times per day. Once in the morning and once in the afternoon. I didn’t find it hard to remember to take it because it was pretty good and it was kind of filling at that. Each chew is 40 calories, so it’s not an overindulgent snack. Overall, I was happy with the results. I forgot to take a before picture, so I can’t really notice if my face changed at all, but my skin does feel and look healthy after using them for a month. My bag of Beauty Chews is now empty and I am definitely going to be heading over to GNC for more.

Buy it: Head over here and find a store that carries Beauty Bursts near you.

Win it: One of you will win a bag of Beauty Bursts so that you can experience the difference for yourself.  Please enter through the Rafflecopter below. It may take 30 seconds or more to load.

UMI Childrens Shoes Review & Giveaway (Ends 9/21)

Umi-logo
When it comes to childrens shoes, I have become very picky. With three kids, it’s way too easy to fall into the trap of buying them the cheapie shoes, especially when money is tight. I have done this repeatedly  in the past and every time I came up with the same result. Those shoes were destroyed before they chad the chance to outgrow them and I was buying them another inexpensive pair just to have the same thing happen again. It was quite the vicious cycle. It wasn’t until I was able to try UMI children’s shoes that I realized that you really do get what you pay for. With UMI, you are paying for quality shoes that last. Not only quality, but also comfort!

play
I have been blessed to be able to try UMI shoes the last several seasons and each time I review them I love them just a bit more. Not only are they adorable, but they are always stylish and are great for the kids to play in. My children thoroughly give them the “destructo-test” and UMI passes with flying colors each time. In my experience with UMI, these are the “put on and go” type of shoes. None of that silly “breaking in” nonsense that so many other new shoes require.
2
This time around I received a pair for my son and my daughter. My son chose the Jett II which I think are so classic looking and fun. Perfect for wearing to his first day of school, which he did. He also wore them on a few other adventures over the summer because he was just dying to wear them.

6
These casual shoes feature breathable canvas and leather uppers, canvas lining and foot bed and contoured, rubber outsoles for extra stability. These are shoes that do not need to be tied when he puts them on. The laces are stretchy and the shoes act as a slip on.

1
My daughter chose the Alexa II and I’d say she made an excellent choice. This classy shoe is simple, yet elegant. It can be dressed up or down and it goes with pretty much everything she owns. It’s perfect.

3
These adorable Mary Jane style shoes are easy for her to put on and take off. They are fastened with good quality velcro. The shoes feature leather uppers, and have a 100% leather lining and footbed for breath-ability.

Buy it: I REALLY love UMI shoes. I can’t recommend them enough to those of you who are tired of buying shoes every couple of months. With free shipping and free returns, you really can’t go wrong. Click here to shop.

Win it: One of you will win a $60 UMI gift card! Enter through the Rafflecopter below. It may take 30 seconds or more to load.
