I was excited to see national brands that my family do eat/use and couldn't wait to put Giant's brand to the challenge once again! Giant's brand of Charmin bath tissue is definitely nice to use, I'm very glad I was able to try out this bath tissue, because with having a family of 4 we are always going through bath tissue. Now by buying Giant's brand bath tissue, it will help me save money! Also, with it being Fall, we are in "soup season", so we have really been enjoying Giant's brand of Ritz crackers. They are the same great quality!!

I haven't tried Giant's brand of Mucinex because "knock on wood" I haven't been sick yet. I hope that I will not get sick this flu/cold season, but I always get one really bad sinus infection so I will be sure to put Giant's brand of Mucinex to the test!

Having a daughter with a severe peanut allergy, it is sometimes really hard to find safe chocolate candy for her to eat. While the Nestle chocolate Chips are not safe for my daughter to eat, I was very thrilled to see that Giant's brand of chocolate chips are!! And boy am I glad because as soon as she saw them she asked for chocolate chip pancakes. She of course approves the Giant's brand of chocolate chips, and this mama does too!

Like I have said before in the first and second challenge, I have to say that our family has really been enjoying Giant brand products. I love that they have this challenge because we get to see first hand that their brands are just as good if not better than national brands products! Don't just take if from me, go ahead and take the challenge this week and next, so that you can see for yourself! I know you won't be disappointed!

Piggy Paint ~ Show Stopper 3 Polish Gift Set | Guest Review + A Giveaway



Little Sister is all about being a princess, wearing pink being 100% a girly girl. She has wanted to paint her nails since she saw mine done for the first time, but I was always nervous using regular nail polish! I didn't want the chemicals on her hands or in her mouth, nor did I want my house to smell! When I was first introduced to Piggy Paint about a year ago, I completely fell in love with this non-toxic, natural polish-- it was perfect for myself & my daughter to use! 

I was so excited when I found out the Piggy Paint Show Stopper gift set would be arriving at my door along with the new Bubble Trouble nail polish & a clear Base coat polish! Little Sister C happen to be home the day the package arrived & she was super surprised to see what was inside-- she couldn't wait to have some girl time & do our nails!


If you're not familiar with Piggy Paint, they are a child friendly company that offers non-toxic, water-based, odorless & natural as mud nail polish! Along with nail polish, you will find puppy paint, accessories, and they even have their own polish remover!

Piggy Paint carries almost every color your little one can dream of, including "Sometimes Sweet", "Ice Cream Dream", "Clouds of Candy" & many more! 

The Piggy Paint Show Stopper set includes "Muddles the Pig", "Jazz it Up" & "Berry Go Round", it's the only all pink gift set!


My daughter decided to paint her nails with the fun "Berry Go Round" first. She loves the way her nails look when painted with Piggy Paint, and she can't wait to show off her new colors to her friends at school! 


So what do you think? Wouldn't your little one love this fun paint on her nails?

Healthy & Beautiful Skin with Skin Authority Products | Review + A Giveaway

*Disclosure: I received the following products at no cost to facilitate my review. All opinions are my own and were not influenced. 


If you are like me and probably like most people, your skin may be changing as you get older. Whether that is developing wrinkles and fine lines, getting adult acne or even dealing with dry or oily skin. The past few years, I have really started noticing my facial skin becoming more dry, as well as developing blackheads--I know, no one wants to read that word and I hated typing it out, but hey it's the truth and I'm honest with my readers!

I was recently reached out by and introduced to a healthy skin care company called Skin Authority and I couldn't wait to try out their products. Instead of me browsing through all of their products and trying to figure out which ones will be a best fit for me, I had a free consultation with a Licensed Esthetician & Skin Coach. I  decided to communicate via email since I'm a very busy mom and it was more convenient. After a couple emails of describing my skin skincare issues, my skin coach set me up with products that she was confident would help me. Before I get to what Skin Authority sent me, read below and view a short video to see a little more about who Skin Authority is.

   

About Skin Authority:
Skin Authority is a prestige skin care line chosen by beauty experts, celebrities, and the media for skin care performance that produces immediately visible results and continued improvement for a lifetime of healthy, radiant skin. They do no animal testing, contain no parabens, no added fragrances, no formaldehyde, the majority of products are vegan, and all are vegetarian. Skin Authority has been featured as an Allure Beauty Editor Pick, Best New Product by Shape Magazine, and featured in numerous other publications including ELLE, Good Housekeeping, People, and New Beauty.

I was sent the following products for review: 
~Moisturizing Cream, $42.00
~Acne & Oil Control, $52.50
~Age Defying Moisturizer SPF 18  Full Spectrum,  $60.50
~Ultra Rich Moisturizer, $55.00
~Night Revitalizer, $57.00


My skin coach also sent me an AM and PM routine, so once my products arrived at my home I knew exactly what I needed to do and which products to use in the morning and at night.

AM routine:
1. Moisturizing Cream Cleanser. (pea sized amount)
2. Acne & Oil Control. (spot treat, one pump should be perfect)
*If you are feeling very dry, apply pea sized amount of the Ultra Rich Moisturizer here. 
3. Age Defying Moisturizer. (1 pump for entire face)

PM routine:
1. Moisturizing Cream Cleanser. (pea sized amount)
2. Acne & Oil Control. (if you feel that it is necessary, once a day might do the trick)
3. Night Revitalizer. (pea sized amount for entire face)
*If you are feeling very dry, apply pea sized amount of the Ultra Rich Moisturizer here. 

I love how detailed my skin coach was with me, in fact I loved talking with her from the very start. She had a great personality and I could tell (even through email) that she really did want to help my skin and to help me feel beautiful.

After using the products religiously for 2 weeks now, I have seen such a huge improvement in my skin. My husband has even said how great my skin is looking! I no longer have very dry skin and probably 75% of my blackheads are gone-- I have a feeling they will be completely gone in another week or so. YAY!!

All of the products feel great when applying them on my skin. They are not greasy or too harsh for my sensitive skin. While the products are a little pricey, you really do not have to use a lot each time. Notice above in my routine schedule the key words like "pea sized amount" and "one pump". I think these products will last me quite a while, AND the price is totally worth paying. You get what you pay for is a great phrase that comes to mind. I have always paid for cheaper facial products before and have never seen positive results like these with Skin Authority. Overall, I definitely recommend you checking out Skin Authority, they have products for both women and men! I know I'm definitely hooked for life and am loving the way my skin looks and feels!
