First Response's new women's health multivitamins - now offering women more than just a test- #spon

Posted by Debra Gray-Elliott at 11:00 PM 0 comments
Disclosure: I did not receive any compensation for this post. However, all information was provided in exchange for a reader giveaway.

For over 25 years, the makers of First Response™ have been a pioneer in women’s health, with a portfolio of innovative, at-home fertility, ovulation and pregnancy test kits. Extending the brand’s leadership in women’s health, First Response™ has launched two vitamin SKUs, First Response™ Reproductive Health Multivitamin Gummies and First Response™ PreNatal & PostNatal Multivitamin Gummies.

These two new products mark a significant step, as First Response is now the first and only pregnancy test brand to go beyond at-home test kits and to offer a women’s health multivitamin.

Ob/Gyns, primary care doctors and even the CDC have recommended that women of child bearing age consume vitamins and nutrients such as folic acid, B vitamins and omega-3 to support their body during pre-pregnancy, and when nursing. First Response is meeting this recommendation, offering women the multivitamin they need for their ongoing reproductive health, as well as for when the time is right to start a family.

First Response™ Reproductive Health Multivitamin Gummy

The First Response™ Reproductive Health Multivitamin Gummy is a multivitamin with essential nutrients needed for overall health and to help prepare for pregnancy (including 400 mcg of folic acid and 50mg of Omega-3 DHA). One serving is an excellent source of iodine to prepare for pre-pregnancy health. 

First Response™ PreNatal & PostNatal Multivitamin Gummy

For pregnant women and women preparing to get pregnant, First Response™ PreNatal & PostNatal Multivitamin Gummy is a multivitamin that contains essential nutrients important to pregnant and nursing women (including 800 mcg of folic acid and B vitamins for energy metabolism support) and one serving is a good source of calcium for nursing mothers.

These supplements were developed in conjunction with vitafusion™, the leader in gummy vitamins and a Church & Dwight, Inc. brand.

Available in Grocery, Drug and Mass stores nationwide. Suggested retail price is $14.99  One lucky reader will win one bottle of each, just enter here.

Purex Crystals ScentSplash Review and Giveaway-#sponsor #purexinsiders #freshscent

Posted by Debra Gray-Elliott at 12:00 AM 27 comments
Disclosure: "The Purex brand provided me with a sample of Purex Crystals ScentSplash in exchange for a product review. However, all of the opinions expressed here are my own"

One of the perks of being a Purex Insider is I get to try new products. I have always used the Purex brand for all of my laundry needs and when I got the opportunity to try new  Purex Crystals ScentSplash , I couldn't wait to enhance my stinky laundry. When you have an 11 year old boy, doing laundry is a chore I'd rather skip than preform. However, when I received my free bottle of Purex Crystals ScentSplash in fresh spring waters scent, I knew doing laundry would never be the same! I also love that it eliminates laundry odors like stinky 11 year old boy odors!

Purex® Crystals ScentSplash™ is the next evolution in laundry in-wash fragrance boosters. It contains refreshing scent beads that release bursts of fragrance with irresistible freshness that lasts! This new Liquid Crystals formula is convenient and versatile enough to be used directly in the washer or in-wash tray, and is safe for all wash fabrics.

One of my favorite things about new  Purex Crystals ScentSplash is scent. The fresh spring waters scent took me back to my childhood. I remember when my mother would hang freshly washed laundry on the clothes line to dry in the cool breeze and warm sunshine. I also wanted my laundry to smell like my mother's and now it can! Whether you want to bring back memories of childhood or just want to eliminate laundry odors, then pick up a bottle of Purex Crystals ScentSplash available in fresh spring waters, fresh lavender, and fresh mountain breeze. One lucky reader will also win a coupon for a free bottle, just enter on the Rafflecopter below. US only. Good luck!

Blog Tour: Parenting Principles and Review-#blogtour #sponsored

Posted by Debra Gray-Elliott at 8:02 AM 6 comments
Disclosure: I received a complementary copy from Cedar Fort in exchange for an honest review. However, all opinions are my own.

Raising children in today's society can be a tough job. With so many different influences in a child's life, parent's have to monitor everything they do. However, if you are a parent and don't know how or what to do then David A Christensen's book Parenting Principles is a book you'll want to read. 

I have an 11 boy in the house and right now going through puberty. It is not a picnic. We have fights and he at times is defiant,but this book has changed my outlook on my strategy. How you teach your child is a vital aspect to their success. 

If you are going through a defiant stage, then pick up a copy today or enter to win an e-copy of the book. One lucky reader will win a copy(mobi or epub). Just enter on the Rafflecopter below. US only. Ends 3/31
About the book:
Give your children a bright future in today’s dark world. Parent with confidence and love with these inspiring stories, poignant personal experiences, quotes from prophets and apostles, and scriptures to study. This uplifting book includes a full month of daily devotionals you can read together and will help you establish the gospel habits your family needs for a lifetime of happiness.
About the author:

David A. Christensen’s love and enthusiasm for being a missionary was sparked in a missionary preparation class at Ricks College in the late 60s. His love and testimony for the Book of Mormon was ignited in a religion class the following semester. These two classes combined as a new beginning for what would one day become not only a passion but also the centerpiece of his professional contribution in the Church Education System and at Brigham Young University–Idaho. David has taught missionary preparation and Book of Mormon classes for over thirty years. His testimony and enthusiasm for the restored gospel was shared with missionaries and members in the Chile Santiago North Mission where he served as president, and again in Central America when he served as president of the Guatemala MTC. He counts his eight children and growing number of grandchildren as his most important converts, and his best friend and wife, Deena Bond Christensen, his eternal companion.

NEW Dial® Sugar Cane Husk Scrub Hand Soap is the newest member of the Dial® Boutique Collection Hand Soap line, bringing luxury to your hand washing experience. With an indulgent scent inspired by freshly cut Sugar Cane, this premium formula with gentle micro scrubbers cleanses deeply while moisturizing and smoothing skin

When I got the opportunity to try new Dial Sugar Cane Scrub Hand Soap, I was thrilled, but I didn't know how my grandson would react! Well, I can tell you, he loves the new hand soap and makes excuses to use it all the time, even when his hands aren't dirty! 

My favorite thing about this awesome scrub is it moisturizes as it cleans my hands. I love the micro-scrubbers which are gentle but effective.
