Listerine Total Care Mouthwash

Did you know that 92% of adults ages 20 to 64 experiencing dental decay in our permanent teeth at some point in our lives? That is a lot in my opinion! We are always telling our children, go brush your teeth, floss, use mouthwash. I even buy special mouthwash for my girls to help them use mouthwash (Listerine Smart Rinse & Agent Cool Blue).

Proper oral care routines and preventive dental care visits prove more essential than ever for achieving a cleaner, healthier mouth. We need to take notes from what we tell our kids - by doing simple things regularly including brushing, flossing and rinsing twice daily and visiting your dentist twice a year for preventative care, you can avoid bigger problems down the line that require painful oral procedures and may cost thousands of dollars. An alarming recent survey by Cigna indicates that 41 percent of Americans are taking worse care of their health because of the economy.

LISTERINE® TOTAL CARE, Anticavity Fluoride Mouthwash, now available, is the only fluoride mouthwash that contains six benefits in one:

· Helping to prevent cavities
· Restoring enamel
· Strengthening teeth
· Killing bad breath germs
· Freshening breath
· Fighting unsightly plaque above the gum line

I had been using ACT Mouthwash once a day. After reading Listerine's website and trying the new Total Care from Listerine I am a convert! I am now using my Total Care twice a day like recommended. My teeth and mouth are feeling cleaner then ever. Thanks Listerine!

You can get a $2 off coupon over at the Listerine website, or by clicking here.

I was asked
to review the products and blog about them on behalf of Mom Central and Johnson’s.

Preparing for summer cuts & scrapes with Neosporin

Finally in Michigan, we are starting to have nice weather. The girls are playing outside. They even got a slight sunburn already on their faces already.

With the nice weather, that means the kids are playing outside ~ running, bike riding, roller skating, etc. With that starts to come the falls, cuts, scrapes & bruises. As you start to think about running around in the backyard and riding bikes, take a minute to investigate your medicine cabinet and prepare for the inevitable scrapes and cuts that outdoor activities bring. Ensure that you are armed with plenty of bandages and antibiotic ointment, such as NEOSPORIN®. Most importantly, be sure that all medicines and products are up-to-date and have not expired.

It turns out that 40% of homes have an expired topical antibiotic in the medicine cabinet, an important issue as some products may lose their effectiveness once they reach their expiration date. The folks at NEOSPORIN® have asked us to look into our medicine cabinets to check expiration dates. When I checked mine, I had two tubes of Neosporin one with pain relief and one without. The one without did expire in 2008, the pain relief is still good through summer. Not bad considering! While checking that, I did found several expired medications, moisturizers and even some make up.

I invite you to investigate your first aid supplies! Check your cabinets, when does your topical cream expire?? Come on spill it :) Here are some special offers for you.

This post brought to you thanks to Mom Central.

Review ~ Remi-D All Natural Hand Sanitizer

With my girls in school, I insist they carry a hand sanitizing item in there backpack. Normally it is a gel based hand sanitizer, that can be a bit gross. I personally can't even stand to use those. When I got the Cucumber scented Remi-D hand sanitizing MIST in the mail, I was quite happy!

Remi-D is the new, all-natural hand sanitizer that kills the germs that cause illness without the alcohol that dries skin and produces other dangers.

Product Features:

- Remi-D is *all natural*. It uses strong and effective ingredients from
nature, avoiding synthetic lab chemicals. It's free of both Triclosan and
Paraben, chemicals found in many household products which have raised
- Remi-D is *alcohol-free*. Alcohol can age, dry out and irritate hands.
The Remi-D team built in natural moisturizers to make your hands look and
feel healthier. Additionally, alcohol content can catch fire when exposed
to flame. Kids may become sick by ingesting it. Remi-D is *kid-safe*.
- Remi-D is easy to use, but tough on the stuff that makes people sick.
It *kills 99.99% of germs* and is effective against MRSA and Staph.
Experts say even a small investment in preventive health could save you --
and the country -- considerable money.
- Remi-D's *scent is subtle*. Cucumber Tea Tree gives you a boost
without giving you an overdose.
- Remi-D is a non-intrusive mist. Just spray, rub and you're done. No
goop, no mess, no stickiness.
- Remi-D's *packaging is sleek and distinctive*, recalling no less an
icon than the famed Zippo lighter.

The Cucumber tea tree scent is awesome! I love the smell, no yucky alcohol smells. The mist is easy to use, covers the hand great. Also, no drying! They also have Mountain Stream and Seaside Mineral Spa coming out. How great is that? Amazing scents, that are not common. Love it!

Remi-D is available nationwide at and at these retail outlets throughout the northeast: A&P, Shaw's, Waldbaum's, Superfresh, Pathmark, Shop Rite, Hannaford, Market Basket, Big Y, P&C, Piggly Wiggly, Sweetbay, Donelan's, Grand Union, Thrifty White Pharmacies and Kinney Drug.

Remi-D also has a facebook page, be sure to check them out ~ become a Fan!

I was asked to review Remi-D through Mom Fuse. A big thank you to both Mom Fuse and Remi-D!

I'm a bag addict ~ Review eenamaria travel tote

Yes, I am a total bag addict. I love purses, totes, beach bags, wallets, wristlets, etc etc.

When I was little, I never went anywhere without a bag. My parents used to joke that I'd grow up a bag lady just because I loved going everywhere with bags. I actually used to fill up the entire backseat with bags of toys. I can't believe they even let me do that, lol.

Anyways, when I had the chance to review a bag from the super sassy eenamaria, I was beyond excited. I chose the eenamaria I Mean Bizniss Travel Tote. I love big bags, and this was the largest selection they offered. When I got a jumbo box in the mail, I was a bit surprised, lol. I know it says travel tote, but they literally mean travel tote. This bag is amazing!

It measures a whopping 19.5" x 17" x 7" and it really holds a lot.

Product Features

  • Top zipper closure
  • Interior fabric lining
  • Two interior slide pockets
  • One interior back wall zipper pocket
  • Double handles with a 4 inch drop length and a 12 inch strap length
  • Front and back exterior zipper pockets
  • Additional strap with an 11 inch drop length and a 30 inch strap length

I chose the black and white version, I totally love it. It is patent nylon and has a really great look to it. The straps feel very secure. The bag really holds a lot. I wish I had this last year when my daughter did competition. I was hoping to use it for a tote bag for going back & forth during the week, but it is just a bit to bag. Who know, I might change my mind because I love the look of it. I think the Workin' Weekend Baby Totewould have been more what I was looking for, size wise. Style wise, I just love the travel tote.

One thing I love about this company is the color options. They have tons of fun graphic patterns with bright fun colors. These bags make you feel good, which boosts your confidence. These would be great for working moms, and even blogger moms going to all those fun conferences every year!

You can purchase eenamaria bags from Ebags. A little more about the company ~


You know eenamaria. She walks faster because she knows where she's going. Impatient and enterprising, she's the one you envy as she glides past you on her motorcycle in gridlocked traffic. She lives by different rules, rules that set her free. She's an Urban Nomad, a life-traveler who knows her way even in places she's never been before. Drop her in any city, any terrain, and the result will be the same. She'll find a path even natives don't know about. The one leading to the most sensational salsa club, the fastest ski slope, the hottest job, the most interesting people. Laughter follows her like light trails a comet. She's a rising star. Sexy. Secure. Life lived in free-style. eenamaria is you. Sexy. Secure. Life lived in free-style. eenamaria is you.

I have found the customer service great with eenamaria. They truly care about selling a high quality bag. I want to get the eenamaria Take a Walk on the Wild Side next. This was the other bag I debated against when I chose mine. Such a sexy little purse, I just love it!

Thanks to Family Review Network for hooking me up with an awesome bag company!!!
