Earths Care Health and Beauty Products

My 2 older daughters have suffered with acne. We have tried a few products and some worked, some did not. My oldest even went to a dermatologist. Not for the acne but they did address it. The oldest has psoriasis. Earths Care has a good product for acne. It is called Acne Spot Treatment. The girls said that it was not greasy. It didn't smell like alcohol. It didn't really dry out their faces. These are common effects of most acne creams and products. Why treat the whole face when the zit is the only part needing treated. Spot care is the best for this.

Active Ingredients:
Sulfur) 0.97 OZ (27 g)
For the treatment of acne
• penetrates the pores and dries and clears pimples and blackheads  • helps to keep new pimples and blackheads from forming
No Animal Testing
No Parabens
No Artificial Colors or Fragrances
No Petrolatum
No Phthalates
Allergy Tested
Non-Comedogenic (will not clog pores)

The girls thought that this did a great job. All skin is different, but why not give it a try. If you are anything like us, we have tried products until we found what works for us.

You can purchase this product for $14.99


Earths Care has quite a few other wonderful products to try out. Why not take a peek at their site.

Disney's Frozen Olaf Sneakers

My daughter is in love with the character Olaf.

This sweet, little, oblivious snow man has taken the world by storm.

These are a must for any Olaf fan! Christmas is coming and would make a super gift!

Black and white will go with just about everything.

These shoes are so comfy that you can just run around in them like they are your slippers. Super easy to clean. Due to the material, you can just use a damp rag and wipe them down. If they do get wet, just shove some pieces of newspaper in the insides and they will dry overnight.

Rubber sole
CHARM TO SPARE: featuring those memorable Disney characters
DURABLE FUN: quality uppers will last through lots of use
CONFIDENT PLAY: the sole is grippy and slip-resistant
CUSTOMIZABLE FIT: these low-rise sneakers' lacing ensures nearly infinitely adjustable fit

Puzzle Cube

My daughter is so upset with her siblings right now. She has wanted one of these cubes for forever. When she opened the box today, someone had changed it all up. So now she has to "play the cube". She loves brain teasers and puzzles so this will definitely challenge her.

This puzzle cube is smaller than the average cube. It fits in your hand well. Easy to turn the layers. Doesn't seem to stick like some cubes do. This one comes with a list of "games" and instructions. I think that is super cool. You aren't just twisting and finding the way back to an all matching cube.

Hours of fun.

Do you have a friend who is totally in to games and puzzles? This would make a great birthday or Christmas present for this. The price is even pretty awesome!

So easy to clean too, just use a damp rag. Air dry.

You can purchase this cube from amazon for $7.89

Nuby Glow in the Dark Binkies

These BPA free pacifiers are a great idea! I was so excited to get to try these.

Product Description
Available in 0-6 months & 6-12 months +
Glow in the Dark Handle
Orthodontic baglet
Massaging Nub-eez™ soothe and stimulate gums
Hygienic Air System reduces skin irritation

Nuby's nite time BPA free pacifier is perfect for naps and night time soothing. It's glow in the dark handle makes it easier to find in the dark. To make the handle glow: expose to light for several seconds, turn lights off and watch it glow.

I have not seen another baby company come out with glow in the dark pacifiers. I love this. We had had enough of the crying in the middle of the night and searching with your hands, in the dark, and not being able to find the small plastic soother.

It's hard enough to find a dropped binkie in the daytime, let alone at night....

Just let these sit in the light for a few minutes, turn off the light and you will be able to see the handles glow. Very nice for night time searching. If the baby is old enough, even better, they can find the binkie in the dark all by themselves. Definitely makes for am easy night for mom and baby.

Our little girl has never been a huge binkie baby but she loves them for teething. Her night time screaming is curbed with these on hand. I am so glad that Nuby came up with this idea. I am sure I am not the only mom who is happy for this new invention.

These come in varieties of colors. Great for every day and every outfit!

This pacifier comes in 0-6 and 6mths plus

Each set of these costs around $5-$7 depending on where you purchase them.

Amazon carries them for $6.99


If you look some Babies R Us carry these. For some reason not all. Buy Buy Baby had them at one time also.

Nuby Flip Spout Easy Grip Sippy Cup

As we get older we are having to find more mature sippy cups. However, due to sensory issues, trying to find such cup is a pain. I have been testing out Nuby sippy cups and this one seems to be liked!

We went out to eat and she was really attached to this cup. Her niece tried to use is and it was not a nice exchange.

This cup comes in a couple colors, for you to choose from. Sort of cute thing is that the color of the cup and the color of the lid are different. This makes for a colorful drinking experience.

Smooth drinking spout and grip middle. Makes it easy for little hands to grip.

10 oz / 300ml
9 months +
Flip spout keeps the spout clean & hygienic
Free Flow for natural easy drinking
Grip- it base allow you little one to get a firm grip

Night Night Farm Board Book

I sort of like night time books. Not that most books aren't night time books, but....

My favorite time of the day is snuggle time with my youngest. She asks me questions and snuggles and we almost always read a book. I try to keep her bringing the Tommy Nelson books. Not only are they smaller, but they are on her level. Plus they get her in the "mood" to say her prayers and relax.

The Night Night Farm Board Book is cardboard and sturdy for those little hands to hold. Each page has cute little farm animals that tell the rhyming story. When I read to her, my voice always goes to the sing song sound of the rhyming books.
I think our favorites were the bath time pigs! This book also helps your child learn the sounds that the farm animals make.

You can purchase this cute board book from the gateway for $7.19


or from Amazon for $6.01

That's Not The Monster We Ordered- Children's Book

I have done a couple reviews from this author. I have loved them all. The latest one was My Grandpa is a Dinosaur. All these books are by Sky Pony Press company.

My littlest loved this book. I made the monster noises, to make it exciting.

The little boy in the book, has a friend who gets his very own monster. Everyone is so jealous. This monster can do so much cool stuff. He could yell louder than a pet lion. He could go down the stairs better than a slinky. He could carry the whole class home on his shoulders.

The little boy finally convinced his mom and dad to get one. So they ordered the best monster they could. The loudest, fastest, grass-eating and time-travelingest monster they could. But when they received their monster...it wasn't what they thought they had ordered. No one was impressed. He was more of a practical joker. What you order and what you receive might not be the item you wanted BUT that monster might be just the monster you need.

There are great morals to this for us all....

Sky Pony Press has quite a few really cool children's books. www.skyponypress.com

You should check them out.

Richard Fairgray, the author, has been publishing since he was 7 years old! He lives in New Zealand.

Terry Jones has done a lot of works with the author. Including the books I have reviewed.

You can get That's Not The Monster We Ordered for around $16.99 for hardcover. You can also purchase for the ebook.
Great for ages 3-6

Don't forget to also look for Gorillas in our Midst $16.99 and My Grandpa is a Dinosaur $16.99

Good Good Father -Children's Book

I absolutely love the song Good Good Father by Chris Tomlin I could listen to it over and over again.

I was excited when I found out that I was going to get to review the new kids book. It has not been released yet.

This book will be released on October 4th, 2016. You can preorder it from Amazon for $10.51 for the hardback version or for $6.99 for the Kindle.


You get to follow, little bear, Tucker on his journey. Tucker loved his friends and all his friends needed help. Some friends were sick, some always fighting, some hungry and some couldn't read. Sweet little Tucker wanted to help them all. I knew he could ask the King for help. But he felt he needed to bring the king a gift. What do you bring a King?
Everyone he passed on the way to see the King, told him different items that might make the perfect gift. When Tucker finally got to the castle the King ran to Tucker and told him that he was glad to see him. The King told Tucker he brought the perfect gift. The King went down, with Tucker, back to his friends. The King gave help to everyone who needed it. Tucker finally understood that he was a Good Fathernot just a Good Father but a Good Good Father. Tucker, in the end, asked the King what gift was the perfect gift? The King answered that Tucker was the perfect gift.

God loves us to come to Him. He will protect, teach, give us what we need, make us well and fill our lives with music and laughter but most of all, He loves us like a Good Good Father. What more could we ask for?

I was sent this book in exchange for my honest review. I am so thankful for this opportunity. This book was even a great reminder for myself, as an adult.

Lightweight AX8 Bluetooth Sport Earphone

Are you looking for a classic looking earbud? These are that kind. Bluetooth is also great so that you don't have all the cords of regular earbuds.

I am the only in my family that does not like to listen to their music like they are front row of a concert. Even the tv has to be high. Drives me nuts. So to cure me having to go deaf, by loud music, we get them all earbuds or headphones.

This specific packages comes in a nice, heavy duty, cardboard box. Inside the box is a little carry pouch, earbuds, the ear bud charger, and extra ear pieces. That part, is a major plus. Earbuds, in this house, are constantly losing the soft part that actually goes into the ear. Either the babies take them and think they are chew toys or they just fall off in travel. The nice carry bag is great to try and keep this from happening!

Looking for a nice set of ear buds that aren't just the Walmart brand, fall apart in a week? Why not test out these babies. Great for running. Grab and toss in the gym bag. Will not fall out of your ears as you run.

You can purchase these for $29.99

Pro For Sho Baby Ear Muffs - 3 Months to 2 Years.

My little girl has sensory processing issues. These were the bomb! I was able to vacuum with no screaming from her. My son was able to mow the lawn. She danced around, happy as a clam!

Soft covering over the headband part. The ear pieces are like fluffy ear muffs. Soft to the head. These are not tight. You can adjust to your child's head size. These fit my 1 year old grandbaby, my 3 year old daughter, myself and my 18 year old son. Very very versatile in size.

I love these so much!

One Big Turkey Board Book

Each page of this adorable board book is a new number, counting from 1 to 10. Each with beautifully illustrated fall colors. All the animals are so cute. There are deer, squirrels and, of course, 1 big turkey. My favorite is the last page, which gives thanks.

OmniGreen (OG) Labs Dietary Fiber Supplement

So I have found that taking a fiber supplement is totally the way to go. Due to bathroom issues, a couple of my kids need to take something in order to keep things moving the way they should.

Very thin powder. Mixes amazingly well. No clumping! I do not like clumpy drinks. I felt it mixed just as well in cold as in hot.

I was impressed and not just cause I was doing a review for it. I got kids to take the fiber!

Men Stainless Steel Blue Watch

Very sturdy. This watch is elegant and yet you can still use this for casual. I absolutely LOVED that this was was made for bigger mens wrists. I'm not sure if this was planned but it worked. My husband has a large wrist. My son, who modeled the watch, has a smaller wrist and it was quite loose.

I love the color. The blue against the stainless steel is so becoming. It looks good with just about any color clothes.

Nuby Bath Crayons

We love our bath toys! It is the one time that the little ones can be totally naked without getting in trouble for taking their diapers or pull ups off. I don't mind them drawing on the walls, with the Nuby Bath Crayons, or on themselves either. Usually my 3 year old is colored all over. She calls her drawings, her tattoos. She wants tattoos just like Mommy.

Let your child take their creativity from the playroom, into the bathroom! This set comes with blue, yellow, green, purple and red. Each bath crayon has a plastic holder around its outside. Easy for those little hands to hold. We love these bath crayons. They are so easy to wash off the walls and or skin.

You can purchase this 5pk of bath crayons for $6.78 from Amazon

Monkey Nuby Snoozies with Binkie

My little girl has sensory integration disorder. She has the need to chew almost all the time. We have expensive chewies and we have Nuby chewies. She seems to like the Nuby ones better. Nuby has so many different chewy items. Just look for the teething items. Nuby is so much less expensive and yet withstands so much. She has 3 year old teeth and we have not had any Nuby item break or tear. I stand behind the Nuby name.

How cute is this with the stuffed animal attached to it. The other binkies like this one are permanently attached to the binkies. This one is detachable for easy washing. Plus, if anything happens to the binkie you can replace it.

You can purchase this from Amazon for $10.99

Nuby 3 pk Non Drip 10 oz Bottles

My grandbaby loves these bottles. She was used to the Dr. Browns bottles but when I got these to test, she took to these really quick. My daughter likes the small well in the tip of the bottle nipple. Unique skirt on the nipple flexes to allow air into the bottle.

The bottle nipple has bumps on it. Provides teething nubs for massage and stimulation of gums. Helps so much for teething infants and toddlers.

Excuse the half naked baby. She keeps taking her clothes off. The colors of the bottles are so pretty. Each color can be used for boy or girl. The shape of the bottle itself is great for easy holding. Little hands have a hard time in holding a heavy, liquid filled bottle.

You can purchase these amazing bottles from:

Available at these retailers:
$9.20 for the set of 3 from Amazon

◦TJ Maxx
◦Baby Depot at Burlington
◦Ross Dress For Less
