Cremo Moisturizer and Face Wash Review

Cremo Company: Cremo Moisturizer and Face Wash Review & Giveaway

Since I was raised by a man, I am a big fan of items that can be used by men and women.

I believe that while men and woman have differences in their skin care, and personal needs, I also believe we are similar in our wishes for skin care.

A couple of months ago I had the opportunity to review a skin care company called Cremo that makes simple shaving creams and skin care that both men and women can use. When they told me that they had a face wash and moisturizer I knew that we would want to try it.

Cremo Company: Men & Women’s Shaving Cream Review

Cremo Company: Men and Women’s Shaving Cream Review & Giveaway

There are certain lessons and teachings that since I was raised by a man that I missed. These are few and far between now that I am older but equally important to my daily life.

The lesson that I missed out on was about shaving. I took all my shaving lessons from my father while he shaved, and relied on my close friends for further teachings. One of the things that I learned is that it is frowned upon when women are shaving that they not use cream of any kind. The result is razor burn, and at times an uneven shave.

This has been a system of trial and error for me with, not only razors, but also shaving creams. I experiment with different brands and try to find the one that will give me a simple and clean shave. Recently I have came across a company called Cremo Company that happens to make concentrated shaving creams, which means less of the product is needed to give a good shave.

5 Reasons to Visit Sun Bum’s Concept Store

5 Reasons To Visit Sun Bum’s West Coast Office & Concept Store and Beach Combo Giveaway!

Sun Bum StoreI could be one of the luckiest people in the world – I live right in the middle of a surf town – Encinitas, California.

If you have never heard of our town let me share a couple of facts with you – the main artery is the Coast Highway 101. Taking this iconic and scenic route is a favorite of Jason and I’s, and also a wonderful place to truly take in the wonder and true “vibe” of this surf town. With a population of almost 60,000 people, almost someone you encounter knows a mermaid or two.

My favorite thing about my town is the diversity I encounter and see daily. This is a town where you can not judge a book by its cover and if you do, then you are the naive one. Everyone here is friendly and there is no judgement for cutting out of the office at 3PM to hit the waves. This is a town that embraces beachy waves – in the sand or on a head of hair.

Taking all this into account it is no wonder that Sun Bum chose Encinitas as the location for its West Coast offices and Concept Store. Being that it was a mere couple miles down the 101, I decided it was time to support this newest addition to our town.

Here are my 5 reasons you have to stop in next time you are in Encinitas!

Plackers Kids Flossers and Flosser Friend Review

Plackers: Kids Flossers and Flosser Friend Review and Giveaway

Giveaway PrizeWhen I was a young child it was determined early on that I would need braces at some point. I had a tooth that was literally coming out of my gums and growing over the other teeth – it was awful on school picture day. In addition to having mutant tooth my teeth also had a permanent film of gook on them. When the day finally came to get braces while my teeth were not perfect they were on their way.

I remember the day I got my braces off like it was yesterday – the excitement and the anticipation of what i would look like with straight teeth in the proper amounts and places was almost to much to handle. As I look back, I wonder if I would have had better oral hygiene as a child than my teeth would have been healthier. Now that I am an adult my concern sits more on the side of keeping the teeth I do have. I want to make sure that 50 years from now, I still have the teeth I was born with.

When I was contacted about reviewing Plackers Kids’ Flossers and Flosser Friend, despite them being geared toward children, I thought they might be a easy way for the adults to floss.
