Belli Skincare Giveaway!

 I've been lucky enough to be able to share a bunch of great giveaways with my fans! Some fellow bloggers have great products to share with you over the next couple days. Enjoy!

Kristen and Belinda here with a giveaway for you from Belli. Belli was kind enough to send some amazing products to both of us, so we are both posting our own reviews. Kristen's thoughts: I was sent two neat gift sets to review. The first was The Complexion Protection Duo. This kit contained Acne Cleansing Facial Wash and Anti-Cholasma Facial Sunscreen. To be perfectly honest, I just don't struggle with acne. I am very thankful for this too! But my husband is a postal carrier and he is out in the elements 6 days a week, walking about 12 miles a day. With the heat starting to kick in where we live, his face has been breaking out. I asked him to try out the facial wash for me. He washed his face at night and said, "it smells girly." But the next morning he was excited to show me his face...totally cleaned up! Now he embraces the "girly" smell and uses the facial wash every night and I am thrilled to report that his skin is staying 100% clear. I was excited to use the sunscreen. Now obviously it works great and like ALL Belli products is completely safe to use while pregnant. But, I really dislike that it is tinted. I actually LOVE that for the pool later this summer, but this is not so great for an every day sunscreen. I will definitely be slathering on my Belli facial sunscreen all summer though since the girls are on the swim team and it will work great at the pool! The second kit I was sent was the Your Best Baby Bump Duo. This kit included All Day Moisture Body Lotion and Elasticity Belly Oil. I did not use the oil very much, but I have been using the lotion constantly. The lotion goes on ultra smooth and has a light lemony scent. You be thinking lemon? Yes, Lemon. And when I am trying to get ready with a queasy stomach, I just love the smell of that lemon. It is so pleasant and actually perks me right up. The lotion does work all day long and comes with a pump to make it even easier! Bottom line: I recommend all the products I tried by Belli. They all are great, work well and they have very high standards on what goes into their products. Belli is a brand you can trust.     Belinda's Thoughts: I received the same products as Kristen, the Complexion Protection Duo and the Your Best Baby Bump Duo. I am super careful about any products I use during pregnancy. I do struggle with acne at certain times of the months and pregnancy hormones can play havoc with my skin. In the past, I have just stuck with soap and water since most acne products are not considered safe during pregnancy. Belli's products are the first to use lactic acid, an ingredient that is naturally found in the body. I was so excited to find products that I could use on my face and know they were safe for my baby! I love the face wash! It smells so good! It has a lemony, citrus scent that is so fresh and clean smelling. I also like that it can be used a s a face wash or left on the skin for 5 minutes an intensive facial mask. My skin feels so good after using it. Very soft and smooth. I am a HUGE advocate for sunscreen! When pregnant, you also have to worry about developing Chloasma, which are dark brown spots that occur on the face. Upo to 70% of women experience this. Unfortunately, I'm in that group. I developed small brown patches on my cheekbones when I was pregnant with my third son. Sunscreen is one of the key ways to help avoid this. I don;t really like using regualr sunscreen on my face since as I mentioned, I'm prone to breakouts. The Belli Anti Chloasma is formulated for your face and is gentle yet effective. As Kristen said, it is tinted. Here's a pic: This is nice at times and not at others. It will be great for when we are headed to the pool or lake where I wouldn't be wearing makeup. It says it can be worn under makeup but I choose not to since I don't want to have too much color on my face. I also liked the Your Best Baby Bump Duo. I love the lemony smell of the lotion! It's one of the few smells that doesn't stink to me right now! The lotion is think but not greasy. I love putting this lotion on when I get out of the shower. It absorbs quickly and leaves my skin soft. I use the elasticity Belly oil on my belly and hips. I've been pretty lucky that I haven't had too many stretch marks but but I know my skin isn't as elastic as it was 10 years ago or even 2 years ago! This oil contains vitamin E Gotu Kola and lavender oil. It absorbs quickly and has a lavender scent. I can honestly say, I really like all the products I tried. Belli pregnancy line screens each ingredient to guard against chemicals linked to birth defects. It's nice to know I can trust the ingredients and know that they are safe for my baby!   Disclosure: The product(s) provided for the review were sent to me free of charge from the company or PR agency.

#Cozycatfurniture Growing up Kitty with Ginger

  It has been so many years since we have had a kitten around the house I think I had forgotten just how active and amazing they are! I am sure many of you have seen me talk about Ginger our baby. She is FeLV positive, and just days short of her 7 month birthday. We also have 2 other boys with are getting up there in age. Thomas has always been a scratcher and I admit I had never thought about getting a kitty tree before this. Earlier in the month a great opportunity to review the Kitty Condo Tree from   Cozy Cat Furniture came about I thought oh great Ginger will have a place to nap, play, learn, and most importantly SCRATCH!      It Arrived in a box which I have to admit scared me a bit at first, it was much small then I thought.....was the tree smaller....was this one of those "some adult assembly required" items? Luckily it was easy to put together and came out so much sturdier then I had expected.  Even before we could give the word go Ginger was eager to play a

Jello Hard Candy

Most hard candies call for corn syrup, but since I was out and I have 3 children home I decided to experiment and make something fun! Here is what you need: 2 Cups of Sugar 2 Cups of Water 1 Package Sugar Free Jello A candy Thermometer Making candy is a pretty tricky process and trust me I messed up a batch or two getting this to work Put the sugar and water into the pot and turn on medium whisking well till the sugar is dissolved. Stirring pretty regularly to help the sugar from burning. As the sugar begin to boil turn the heat up to high. Watch your thermometer when the candy reaches 230 pour in the jello continuing to mix. Pour this mixture immediately into a cake pan that is lined with parchment paper of you can rub a little veggie oil in it. The candy will continue to cook as it melts anything over 230 you will be left with a burnt candy that tastes like After you candy is cooled completely turn it out onto a cookie sheet and break apart :O) I li

Killing Ants Safely

LOL okay I know the title seems a bit silly. Here is West Texas ants are a BIG problem. Not only do they bite, but well they are really annoying! They sneak into every crack in your house no matter how hard you try. With pets though you are very limited to the products you can safely use to kill ants. As time goes on more and more I am concerned about the products I keep in this house and the effect they have on not only me and my children, but my pets. When looking for ways to rid myself of these pests I found a simple, cheap, and effective means to do so. CORNMEAL! Yep it is very simple, for about $2 a bag I can treat weekly for an entire year! While it doesn't kill them all it has certainly brought down the population so that now it isn't even noticeable. All you do it sprinkle it on top of their mounds and watch the greedy little ants drag it all inside! When eaten it expands and POOF! ;O) You get the picture.
