3 Things I’m loving

The room is a bit spinny, perhaps I should go to bed. There just aren’t enough hours in the day and I’m struggling to get everything done. Just wanted to take a quick moment to share three things I’m into at the moment.

1. Oral-B CrossAction toothbrush BzzAgent sent me some swag for their Crest Pro-Health campaign. I received Crest Pro-Health PROFRESH Toothpaste, Oral-B CrossAction Pro-Health Toothbrush, and Crest Pro-Health Multi-Protection Rinse. The toothbrush and toothpaste were already my favourite brand. The mouthwash was a bonus. I like the way it doesn’t burn my tongue. What I really love is the toothbrush. I’ve never had a better toothbrush. I hope Oral-B never discontinues making it.

2. Honey, I Washed the Kids soap from Lush Cosmetics
I got a little star shaped soap at Christmas time. Because of the name, I thought I’d let the kids use it. I did BUT I fell in love with it and one day I treated myself to a bar all for myself. It smells so incredibly good. I want to eat it… well, not really. The soap is so creamy and doesn’t leave an itchy film. If I could only have one soap for the rest of my life, I’d pick this one.

3. The Everything Planner: 2013-2014 Printables by Gennifer Bursett
These charts and planners are going to make my life a breeze in 2014. I swear! They’re awesome in both functionality and prettiness. Wouldn’t you say? Calendars, Chore Charts, Checklists, To Do Lists.

ALSO… I am using them in my Project Life scrapbooking. I resized a calendar and to do list onto 4″x6″ cards to insert into my weekly layouts. I also cut out a strip of dates for a layout about back to school.

I’m a BzzAgent: Burt’s Bees Intense Hydration Campaign

I’ve been a BzzAgent for a year or so. It means I occasionally get asked to sample a product and share my thoughts via social media. Heck ya, I said. I got asked to try out Burt’s Bees Intense Hydration night cream. I was pretty excited about this campaign. My favourite yet!

I wanted to do this campaign because: a) I love Burt’s Bee products b) I have dry skin in the winter and c) I need a good night cream.

I’ve been using the night cream since mid-December. When I first applied it, I thought “woah, this stuff is way too heavy. I’m not going to like it”. I was also unsure of the herb fragrance. It was subtle and didn’t give me a headache but I wasn’t sure I wanted to smell like a spice rack. Within five minutes of applying it, the heavy sensation went away and was replaced with a lovely moisturized feeling. That dry, pulling feeling my skin gets when I don’t moisturize went away. I was relieved to find the cream absorbed so quickly. By morning, I was delighted to feel my skin was softer and smoother. My skin has also been clearer since using the product. I guess because it is more hydrated? I don’t care what the reason it, I’m just thankful. I usually develop dry skin by January. I didn’t have the problem when I started using the cream but using it daily has prevented the usual dry skin rash I develop by New Years. So, yay for that too! Lastly, I have grown to quite like the smell of the product. I even look forward smelling it again every night. So there ya go, my thoughts on an excellent product. I intend to buy it once my sample jar runs out.

Burt’s Bees was also kind enough to give a cleanser to try as well. Yahoo, I’m enjoying that too. Thanks, Burt’s Bees!
