Carmex Review & Giveaway

I love being a Carmex blog squad member! Carmex is my little obsession! If you walk around my house, you see it everywhere! It is the only lip balm used in our house!

Summer is in full swing. Most people forget about their lips while they are out in the sun having a good time. I HATE having sun burned lips. It hurts and is no fun. Carmex always comes to my rescue! Now, they have a new awesome flavor, Pomegranate!

I was sent the new Pomegranate flavor to try along with five other amazing flavors! Original, lime twist, vanilla, strawberry and cherry. All are wonderful and have SPF15! No more sun burned lips for me! The Pomegranate flavor is great. It has a nice sweet-tart smell and flavor. Not too sweet at all. It goes on super smooth and feels so nice!

Along with all the Carmex, I also received a niffty bag! I call it my boat bag. Every time we go out on our boat, I take it with me to put all my stuff in. It can hold A LOT! It is strong enough to hold it all too! The handles are look like rope. It think it is the perfect boating bag! It would also be great to take out on the beach!

One of my luck readers is going to win the same thing I received! The Carmex 'boat' bag, and the 6 Carmex flavors including the new Pomegranate flavor! Good luck!

Marie Dean Review & Giveaway

I am a sucker when it comes to beauty products. Walking down the isles of the store and seeing all the bottles of shampoo, conditioner, lotion and soaps, I can't help but pick them up and take them home with me. Whether I need them or not, I can't help it!

When I came across Marie Dean, once again, I couldn't help myself! Marie Dean sells hair and body care for the whole family. The ingredients used are natural and high quality to leave your skin and hair fully nourished. Plus, it is all made by hand!

For review, I was sent three of their products. Coffee and Kokum moisturizing deep conditioner, Coconut Vanilla conditioner and Amla hair creme. I was thoroughly impressed with all three!

The products all had such a wonderful smell! There was not one that I did not like. I am really picky about the smells that go into my hair, and I was ok with all three smells. I love coconut smells and all three had at least a hint of coconut.

I had never used a deep conditioner before I was sent the Coffee and Kokum moisturizing deep conditioner. I put it in my hair and let it sit for 30 minutes. I just sat and watched tv while I was waiting. Then I rinsed and I was done. Let me tell you, my hair felt like I had a new head of hair! It was so smooth and healthy looking.

I have also really enjoyed the hair creme. My hair needs moisture since I am always either in the water or out in the sun. I do not like my hair to feel 'crunchy'. The hair creme has really helped give my hair the right balance of moisture and strength. Not to mention that it is great for styling!

Lastly, the Coconut Vanilla conditioner. I really like this the best. I use it every couple of times I take a shower. It goes into my hair so easily. It also comes out nicely too. It does not leave my hair feeling greasy like a lot of other conditioners do. The first time I used it, the smell made me smile. I went all that day, went swimming, took another shower, washed my hair, and when my hair dried, I STILL could smell the conditioner! I loved that! The smell stuck around for a long time!

Marie Dean sells so many different products that you have to check out the store for yourself to see them all! Trust me, you are going to want to try them, I was not disappointed at all!

One of my lucky readers is going to win an 8 oz Mango Detangler from Marie Dean! Good luck!

UGLee Pen Review & Giveaway

I am so happy to be telling you about this product I just received! It's the UGLee Pen! I have been seeing these pens everywhere and was so curious about why everybody was raving about them. I finally got my chance to see what all the fuss was all about.

I was sent a pack of three UGLee Pens. The first thing I noticed about the pens was the grip. Usually when pens have grips, they are only at the top of the pen. This grip covers the majority of the pen. It is designed to fit the contours of your hand. It reminds me a lot of those rubber fishing lures that are shaped like worms. That sounds funny, but the grip is really comfortable.

Next, I tried writing with it. I would have loved to have these pens while I was still in school. I was always looking for pens to write a certain way. I wanted it to write dark, full, and smooth. That is exactly what the UGLee Pen does. It is nice a smooth writing with it. It just glides across the paper! The ink comes out great too. You don't have to go back over your letter because the pen didn't feel like working!

The UGLee Pen is a revolutionary ergonomic pen that is designed, created and used by a real physician. This Doctor-inspired grip pen is redefining the way people view pens and writing. The UGLee Pen is good for everyone who writes (even just a grocery list), and is especially helpful to people who experience pain and discomfort when writing, for example those with arthritis, carpal tunnel syndrome, etc.,. It's also the best writing utensil  for children who are learning to write and are developing fine motor skills, as well as helpful for special-needs children who find holding a pen or pencil properly difficult. And for high-school and college students who have to take copious notes, this pen helps keep hands and fingers from cramping.

Would you like to try the UGLee Pen? Well, one of my lucky readers is going to win a set of 3 UGLee Pens! Good luck!

a Rafflecopter giveaway

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
