Nellie’s All Natural: Dryer Balls, Wash Soda and Melon Soap Review

Nellie’s All Natural: Dryer Balls, Wash Soda and Melon Soap Review + Giveaway

When I shop for products one of the first things that I look for is packaging. This past year my father went to the fair and picked up the cutest tin’s that were filled with laundry supplies.

The packaging was lighter colors, and the one I saw was shaped like a washing machine. The tin had a slit at the top, which makes the item the perfect piggy bank once the product inside is used.

I was interested in what the company was, and how in this disposable world, they decided to use tin packaging. The company was Nellie’s All-Natural and they were generous to send us a couple items for review.

Oogie’s Gourmet Popcorn Review

Oogie’s Gourmet Popcorn Review + Giveaway

As I have mentioned in the past we are a snack house – we love our snacks. The problem is that many times we are looking for a semi-heathy snack that we can eat without our hands being dirtied or full.

In our house, both of us spend many hours at our computers, and since we do not like to get our keyboards dirty, popcorn is often the snack that we end up choosing.

The problem is that since we eat so much popcorn, we grow tired of the flavors typically available. When I recently came across a company called Oogie’s Gourmet Popcorn and saw their collection, I was interested to give these different flavors a try.

Cremo: Sandalwood Shave Cream Review

Cremo Company: Sandalwood Shaving Cream Review & Giveaway

When I had the opportunity to try Cremo Company and their men’s and women’s shaving creams, I instantly liked them. Each of these products are great, and live by the message on the bottle with a little goes a long way.
