I haven't really been purchasing any all in one products, I seem to shy away from them thinking that they won't do as good of a job as single products so when I was asked if I would like to try a 2-in-1 product I agreed.

The product I received?  Ivory 2 in 1 Hair & Body Wash.

Now as you know, I'm not the only one in the house that tries the products - so you are getting a spectrum of thoughts and feels :)  

We all thought that the smell was Awesome!  My hubby thought it should be called apples because that is what it reminded him of.  I thought more of spring when I smelled it & my son?  He just said Mmmmmm.....  (That's good - he can't think of a descriptive word).
I thought that it dried my hair out and I needed to use conditioner (Now, since I don't typically use a 2 in 1 I don't know if this is common).  My hubby however has SHORT hair, and he liked it - said it wasn't drying at all.
As a body wash, I thought it was great as did the hubby.

I heard through the influencer grapevine that it can be used in the bath also, but I have been waiting to make sure neither kiddo has skin issues before I plop them into that one  (watch for an update on this one :)

The downside of this product??  
The packaging - we all feel it is bulky and hard to hang onto.  It also feels dollar store-ish. Now.... since I received this item to review, I don't know where the final destination is or what the price point is, so if I knew that - my mind may review this part differently.

Recommend?  Yes
Buy Again?  Maybe (Price would be a Big determining factor)


My family & I were not compensated for our views on this product.  We received this as a trial from the influenser and our opinions are 100% ours.

 
 
I was really excited to find out that we had been chosen to try some P&G products.


I have always liked their products and couldn't wait to find out what would be in our package :)

Above is what was included.
1) Olay Body Wash
2) Covergirl Dual Lipstip
3) Tide To Go
4) Gillette Aftershave

Olay Body Wash
I liked the Olay Body Wash.  I Really liked the smell - it was soft and light and it moisturized at the same time.
My husband however felt it was too thick, that it was more like lotion and was only usable if you used a loofa because that is the only way it will lather up.
We both felt the size and shape of the bottle was perfect size and nice looking.
Reccommend?? Me - Yes,  Hubby - No
Buy Again?? Me - Yes, Hubby - No

Cover Girl
I'm not completely sure what type of lipstick or what color I received because it was not in a box - just that it is #295.  It was nicely sealed, so I knew it wasn't tampered with :)  I like the color and was pleased with the shine that was received once the clear coat was applied.
I tried it three different ways, one way was applying both the color and the clear coat.  The other was to only apply the clear coat, the final was to only apply the color.
I would not suggest only the color being applied because it feels sticky and comes off easily.
I liked the dual action of the color and the clear coat, but felt that it was short lasting and I needed to re-apply it often.  It did Not however come off on my kids when I kissed their cheeks (SOO good because it was Right before school!)
I Really Loved just the clear coat.  My lips felt really good and seemed to get a moisture that I don't get from lipbalm.
Reccomend??  Yes!
Buy again??  Yes!

Tide To Go
I have always wanted to try Tide To Go, have picked it up, looked at it and then... put it back.
WHY???  I'm not sure because I LOVE this product!  My daughter coughs all the time and gets these yucky brown stains on her tops ALL the time.  I HATE it!!!  So....  I carried this handy little stick in my purse and after one of her coughing fits I would just dab away and not worry.
We tried it on many different fabrics from Jeans, sweatshirts, fleece, silky material, and to be straight forward - too many to remember.
It was soo easy that our 4 year old pre-treats his clothes when something happens.
Recommend?? Absolutely!
Buy Again??  Absolutely!!

Gillette After Shave
From the words of my loving hubby (who LOVES these trials as much as I do!)
This stuffis cool, smells good, feels good.  Most after shaves are either greesey or have too much alcohol - this stuff is just right for me.  The pump is sanitary and clean (does not leave a mess or a drip hanging from the nozzle)
Recommend?? Absolutely!
Buy Again??? YES!!

We as a family enjoyed all of the products that we received and have given our 100% honest reviews of each of these products.  We did not receive any compensation for our reviews, nor did we know what products we would receive.  All reviews are solely our own.
Thank you for your time!!!

 
 
I was happily suprised to get the mail and find a couple of items that I wasn't expecting to receive!

Those are my Favorite mail days -

Above is one of the items I received.  
A Cute pink glittery barrette.

My Thoughts???
My Daughter LOVES it & will Love wearing it on her headbands which she uses to hold on her glasses.

It looks like it will hold up to the wear and tear of a two year old - as long as the two layers are sewn or glued together.  I can't tell because I don't want to take it apart.

The snap barrette is Great, because it won't fall off her headbands and is rounded instead of straight so it shouldn't bother her head while she is wearing it.

It is BRIGHT, so she will choose it & keep it on.

(Note: I received this item from Bizark - no compensation is being received from them for this review, it is 100% my opinion)

 
 
The "Family Hook" came in a package of two.
Simple packaging which was easy to open - so the trial started out GREAT!
I read the instructions and they are straight forward - I didn't really follow them though because it said to use heat if you are applying in the winter.  (It's not technically winter, but the wall wanted to say differently :)

Even though I didn't use any heat, it stuck to the wall right away and is firmly stuck where I put it.

I did think when I was looking at them in the package that they would be easy to break (two prongs just there.....), but I pulled on them while they were in my hands and after I placed it on the wall and they are tough!
I have so far only found one plug that won't fit into the holder (which is the one you see plugged into the wall.

I would reccommend these to anyone looking to get plugs off the ground and save a few toes :)

Note: I received this product for review purpuses from BizArk Deals - no other compensation has been received.  This is 100% my opinion

My Daughter just recently started to wear SMO's.
These are to give her ankles support and hopefully allow her start walking (with further assistance from a Gate Trainer).
In order to give her the most comfort it was suggested that we use seamless socks.  But let me tell you - they are EXPENSIVE!!!!

We were given a small list of websites that carry the socks.  Each one wanted no less than $20.00 per pair plus shipping!!
So.... thinking maybe I could get a better deal from a local rehab facility I called to inquire.  I was Wrong - they wanted $30.00 for ONE pair!!

Uggg.....  soooo.......  Onto the search I went.

I found these socks - SmartKnitKIDS.  They start at around $7.00 per pair and go down from there depending on the quantity you order and whether or not you have any coupon codes.  Which I did :)
So 12 pair later, we spent about $60.00 and are VERY happy with the quality of the socks, the way they fit, and the speed that we got the shipment.
We were expecting them to arrive within 7-10 days but they were at our door 2 days later.

Oh & those cute little "bugs" in the picture??  Each package comes with one, so if you have a family like mine - big brother gets the bug & little sister gets the box - Silly kids!!

My son has been doing a really good job with doing his chores, so we decided it was time for him to get an allowance.
He decided that he wanted to purchase the Shark Exhibit for his Thomas Track.  We both thought it was going to be Super cool & were really excited to get it home and play with it.
Who wouldn't want to watch Thomas the Tank Engine go through a shark mouth, drop down, release a baby shark and then go pick it up to deliver it to it's desination.
We sure did!!!
Well.....  I have to say we were both disappointed with the results once we unpacked it from the box.  It is really difficult to keep the two tracks together (there is a disclaimer on the box that not all trains will work, but you would think the one they packaged would).
It doesn't stay open very well, so it caused a lot of frustration the first day we had it.
The tank that the baby shark falls into doesn't have moving wheels and doesn't have magnet so it doesn't work very well :(

Other than that, we are still playing with it (not as much as his other Thomas items), and are ok with getting
