Care For Your Skin This Spring! @Dove #Giveaway #Ad

*I participated in this campaign on behalf of Dove US. I received a promotional item to facilitate this review and as a thank you item for participating.  All opinions are my own.       I've always had combination skin.  Although I have some oily areas on my face, I suffer from dry skin on the rest of my body and am always on the lookout for products that will help me to retain moisture.  This is especially true during the Spring and Summer months when I tend to shave my legs more often due to more frequent wear of shorts or dresses.  I find that my skin tends to lose valuable nutrients during this time and I have to work harder to keep it soft and smooth.     Recently, I found a product that not only allows me to enjoy a luxurious lather when I am showering but that I can also use as a substitute for shaving cream during the warm weather.  New Dove Crème Mousse body washes feature a rich, whipped formula that allows me to enjoy the benefits of a body wash and a shave cream … [Read more...]

Feel Beautiful Naturally! #AVEENO #Ad

*This sponsored post was written by me in collaboration with Latina Bloggers Connect and Aveeno.  All opinions are 100% mine.     Most women grow up and learn their beauty and skin care routines from their mothers and grandmothers.  Within the Hispanic community, this is especially true and, as young girls, we are taught the secrets passed down by generations of women in our family when it comes to grooming and taking care of ourselves.  In many cases, the tips that are passed down include ingredients that can be found in nature that serve to bring out our natural beauty.     I was raised by my Grandmother in Spain until I was eight years old and she has always used natural products to take care of herself on the inside and on the outside.  My grandparents owned a farm and she grew a variety of fruits and vegetables in her garden which we consumed and which she swore had secret beauty benefits.  I remember laughing whenever she would say that eating pears daily made her skin … [Read more...]

Clean And Soft Hands For Your Entire Family! @Dial #PurexInsiders #Giveaway #Ad

*This post was written by me on behalf of Purex as a Purex Insider.  I received complimentary product samples to facilitate this review.  All opinions are 100% mine.       In our home, we go through a lot of hand soap.  Between having two active boys and my husband's home improvement projects, a ton of hand washing goes on regularly.  When I look for hand soaps to purchase and keep in the bathroom, I definitely have specific criteria for the qualities that I am searching for.     Since we wash our hands so often, it is important that the soap we use is gentle yet effective because we don't want to dry out or irritate our skin.  Dial offers an elegant, scented, premium soap that not only cleans very well but also moisturizes and has a delicious scent.  I've come to expect this kind of quality from Dial products over the years and their Deep Cleansing Liquid Hand Soap does not disappoint.     We tried the Dial Coconut Lime Verbena and Water Blossoms Deep Cleansing … [Read more...]

Treasure Those Special Family Moments! #FamiliaLubriderm #LatinaBloggers #Ad

*This is a compensated campaign in collaboration with LUBRIDERM and Latina Bloggers Connect.  I received a promotional item to facilitate this review and as a thank you item for participating.  All opinions are my own.     This afternoon, I was having a conversation with a colleague at work about how, as I am getting older, my priorities have changed significantly.  Now that I am a mother and a wife, it is clear to anyone who is in my life that my family is the most important thing in my life.  I treasure and value every single opportunity that I have to spend quality time with them and those instances are the moments when I am the most happy.     During these last couple of months, we have had some amazing experiences together and even spent some time snow tubing with the kids.  Unfortunately, due to the freezing temperatures and the barrage of snowstorms that New York City has had this winter, being outdoors has wreaked havoc on all of our skin.  We have all complained of … [Read more...]

Experience A Boost Of Soft Skin! @Dial #PurexInsiders #Giveaway #Ad

*I participated in this campaign on behalf of Dial as a Purex Insider. I received a promotional item to facilitate this review and as a thank you item for participating.  All opinions are my own.       We love using body wash when we take showers.  There is just something about lathering up your skin and filling the bathroom with a refreshing scent of clean.  The problem is that some body washes are very harsh and dry up our skin.  Since all four of us have sensitive skin, we are always on the lookout for body washes that will moisturize our skin and be kind to it.     As a Purex Insider, I have the privilege of trying out all of their new products as soon as they come out.  I was very excited to find out that their new Dial Vitamin Boost Body Wash was being introduced with the promise that it gives your skin a daily boost of vitamins.  That sounded great to me because more vitamins mean healthier and moisturized skin.     Its advanced formula contains a Vitamin … [Read more...]

*I participated in a campaign on behalf of Rejuvenator Products. I received a promotional item to facilitate this post and as a thank you item for participating.  All opinions are my own.     I'm sure I don't have to tell you how soothing it is to take a long, hot shower after a hard day at work.  Some days, I spend the last few hours at my job counting down the minutes until I can enjoy that little time to myself.    I've been looking for ways to make my shower experience even more rewarding and I think I found the perfect product.  The Rejuvenator Microbubble Shower Head seemed to be the perfect addition to my relaxing daily shower routine.     Before you go on thinking that this is your average shower head, let me be the one to tell you that it is unlike any shower fixture that you have every experienced.  The secret behind its effectiveness is that it not only cleans the surface of your skin but also naturally and effectively cleans deep within your pores.  The Rejuvenator … [Read more...]

Safely Sanitize And Moisturize Your Children’s Hands! @MothersTherapy #Giveaway #Ad

*I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mother's Therapy Organics. I received a promotional item to facilitate this post and as a thank you item for participating.  All opinions are my own.     Today I received a call from my son's school nurse.  It seems that he broke out in hives again in the schoolyard.  He is asthmatic and suffers from a few allergies so it is common to see him suffer from skin rashes or hives from time to time.  Since I worry so much about his allergies, I have started using more and more organic products in our home and on his skin.  A recent study shows that more parents are switching to organic and natural items on their children due to being concerned about the harsh, chemical-laden products that are currently available.     Mother's Therapy Organics includes safe, natural and organic ingredients in all of their children's cleansing products because they are dedicated to preserving the health and well-being of all children.  This is what initially … [Read more...]

Moisturizing Skin Care That Is Not Just For Babies! #JohnsonsBaby #Ad

Disclosure:  This is a compensated campaign in collaboration with Latina Bloggers Connect and JOHNSON’S® Baby.  However, all opinions expressed are my own.     Every single time my husband is in my car, he complains that I never keep any lotion in the glove compartment.  You see, he has very dry skin and is used to having hand lotion in his own car readily available at his disposal.  We have always trusted Johnson's Baby with the care of our sons' skins so I thought it would be the perfect moisturizer to use on my husband's skin.     My husband has told me repeatedly that his dry skin issues are not just about dryness but that they also cause him discomfort that can only be alleviated when he hydrates his skin with moisturizing cream.  This is the reason that Johnson's immediately came to mind due to the fact that it has always been gentle enough for babies' skins but is also strong enough to lock in moisture in adult skin.     When our oldest son was born, one of my … [Read more...]
