Review: Skin Therapy Shaving and HeelTastic

I hate shaving.

I hate it and yet I have a fear of pain so I'm never going to get that laser hair removal.

I was given a sample of something that made shaving a little easier...especially in the bikini area.

Meet my razors new friend:

Photobucket

Shaver's Choice left my skin smooth and no bumps!

Shaver's Choice Slick! Shave Gel and Smooth Skin Therapy deliver a one-two punch to the bumps. You know, those little red bumps you get from ingrown hairs that not only look bad, but can itch. It made my legs feel really smooth and I didn't get one nick...even on my knees!

A little goes a long way

The gel was easy to apply and I used about a quarter-sized amount. It did not have any strong odor (either masculine or feminine) and at just $7 a tube this product is affordable when you consider it should last for 100 shaves.

Heel-Tastic made my heels sweet!

My feet get very dry and itchy in the winter so I was actually really excited that this package came with Heel-Tastic. Despite the goofy name, this stuff was serious when it cam time to smoothing my dry, cracked heels...even the first night. I did use it and then sleep with my socks on so that might have helped some. It has a wonderful, herbal smell and as I'm rubbing it into my feet, if I close my eyes and put on new-age music I can almost picture someone else rubbing my feet at a spa. Almost.

Pros and Cons also known as Twofer Thumbs Up or Down...

Thumbs Up: Products are either Low-odor (great gift for men or women) or have a very pleasant smell

Thumbs Up: Reasonably priced and all products seem to last an extended amount of time

Thumbs Up: All products seem to do what they claim to do. Shaving was easy and painless, no red bumps, and I started to see results on my heels the first day!

Down: Not great for travel - you'd have to put gel into a 2oz container and not sure what they would say about Heel-Tastic balm. That might be ok.

Down: Not sure these products are all-natural so if that's important to you read the packaging very carefully.

Happy shaving!

Aller-Ease Giveaway - you need this more than you know!

Let's talk for a minute about....


Dust Mites


A single female dust mite lays 40 to 100 eggs, creating more than 100 new dust mites and 8,000 fecal droppings per month. Dust mites multiply so significantly, that unprotected pillows will weigh 10 percent more after just two years – and unprotected mattresses will double in weight after 10 years.

How about...

Pet Dander

Pet dander consists of the flakes of dead skin shed by cats, dogs, hamsters, and guinea pigs...even those called "hairless"

and

Mold Spores

Molds are tiny organisms that float through the air, often settling in soil, vegetation and rotting wood outside, and enter a home through open doorways, windows, vents, and through heating and air conditioning systems.

Here's what they all have in common:
1. They are gross.
2. They are the most common causes of alle
rgy and asthma
3. They can be prevented simply by using Aller-Ease protective products

Stop whining and Enter to Win!
Now that I've completely grossed you out, stop whining about your loss of appetite and just do something to take care of your dust mite, mold, and dander problem!

Enter to win an Aller-Ease Deluxe pillow AND queen cotton pillow protector!

Fact: 1 in 4 Americans suffer from asthma or allergies.

I bet there are times you wake up feeling a little stuffy, sinuses a little clogged, slight dull headache. What's causing that? Could be one of the little microscopic things living in that pillow like
dust mite droppings,
pollen, fungal and mold spores, and pet dander.

All I can say is, eeeewwwww.

One thing you might try is changing that pillowcase and Aller-Ease is making it really easy to WIN one so you can test my theory FREE!


Aller-Ease is giving away 50 pillow protectors EVERY DAY through Monday, April 6th.
Not only that, give them your WORST allergy story and you could win an allergy-proofing bedroom makeover! (Allergy horror story contest ends April 30, 2009.)

  • Wash bed linens weekly in 130-degree Fahrenheit water
  • Remove dust collecting clutter from the bedroom and other areas of your home
  • Place non-washable plush toys in a zip-lock bag and put them in the freezer for 3-5 hours every week to kill off any dust mites
  • Change air conditioner filters frequently during the allergy season

Listerine Total Care Anticavity Flouride Mouthwash Review

I have recently become much better at taking care of my teeth. I used to just floss right before my annual dentist appointment (oh I know you did too) but the pain and bleeding gums were enough to motivate me to do more.

And then I cracked a tooth.
And then I had it repaired.
And then it cracked it again.
And then I finally had to pay out of pock
et a LOT of money to get a veneer.

All this because I grind my teeth which wears down the enamel of my teeth so they are more prone to cracking.

I now wear a mouth guard at night (very sexy I might add) and most recently found Listerine Total Care Anticavity Flouride Mouthwash thanks to Mom Central and Johnson's!


As a reviewer I was sent a bottle to test and the first thing that caught my eye was the benefit in the fact sheet that said "Restoring enamel".

In fact, there are 6 benefits to LISTERINE® TOTAL CARE Anticavity Fluoride Mouthwash that give you a cleaner, healthier mouth:
• Helping to prevent cavities
• Restoring enamel
• Strengthening teeth
• Killing bad breath germs
• Freshening breath
• Fighting unsightly plaque above the gum
line
This bottle of Listerine is a welcomed addition to my dental routine. Just swish the mouthwash around for one minute after your brush (twice a day for best results) and remember not to eat for 30 minutes afterward. Then go about your day or head to bed knowing your teeth are better protected. Thanks Mom Central and Johnson's! My dentist thanks you, I thank you, and my wallet thanks you!
