My latest freebies from Mom's meet!

Hey everyone! 

Here is my last package from Mom's Meet! 

Check out my YouTube video all about the goodies I received!

If you've never heard of Mom's Meet then you sure are missing out! Mom's Meet is an amazing website with a huge community of eco-conscious moms! The website offers tons of discussion boards, sampling opportunities, and so much more. When you sign up to become a Mom Ambassador you get the opportunity to fill out surveys to sample certain products. Each survey is tailored to that specific item, so sometimes you will qualify and sometimes you won't. If you do qualify, you get an amazing package sent right to your door for your group to review. Once you receive your package you host a party/get-together with your friends and family and you all sample the products! A few weeks later you will receive an e-mail asking you to fill out a survey all about everyone's thoughts on the products. That's it! This is a super easy and rewarding program to be a part of and I am so thankful I've gotten to participate! If you'd like to learn more about Mom's Meet click HERE! 

As you can probably tell I got accepted into the SO Delicious Dairy Free sampling program and here is what they sent me. 

The package included:
2 coupons for a free SO Delicious Product
SO Delicious Dairy Free Coconut Milk Creamer Barista Style Original
4 Pack SO Delicious Dairy Free Cococcino Coconut Milk Iced Coffee Lattes
A HUGE stack of brochures filled with coupons to hand out to friends and family 

Nutritional Values and Our Opinions 

- SO Delicious Dairy Free Coconut Milk Creamer- Contains no dairy derivatives, no soy, no high fructose corn syrup, no mono and diglycerides, no hydrogenated oils (tans fat), no artificial flavors, and it's gluten free and vegan. Each serving size is 1 Tbsp, contains 10 calories, 0g fat, 1g carb, and 1g of sugar. To be completely honest Daniel and I did not like this coffee creamer. We still have 3/4 of the bottle left, and we went back to our tried and true International Delight Vanilla Coffee Creamer. We really did not care for this product, and I hope there are better options out there for people who have dairy free diets. 

-SO Delicious Diary Free Cococcino Coconut Milk Iced Coffee Latte- Contains 100% organic and certified fair trade coffee. This is gluten free and vegan. Each serving size is 1 container, contains 130 calories, 4g fat, 3.5g saturated fat, 150mg sodium, 26g carbs, 2g dietary fiber, 22g sugar, 1g protein, 45% calcium. I quite like this Latte! It is VERY strong, so if you like your coffee on the weaker side, you will not like this one bit. You can definitely taste the vanilla extract and coconut in this latte and I think it is delicious! These are great for when you are on the go or your in a hurry to run out the door but want a bit of coffee to take with you.

Empties/Product's we've used up!

Ughhhh! Can I just say that, please? I totally made a YouTube video about all of these products and it got DELETED. Rggggh. Ok, I am done. But really it is really annoying when videos just go missing into thin air. At least I took pictures, right?
 Let's see what we used up this week! 

Just The Basics 2x concentrated Laundry Detergent- HATE. This is the CVS store brand and this laundry detergent sucked ass when used for cloth diapers. It worked fine on regular clothes, but if my laundry detergent can't wash everything from clothes, to blankets, to cloth diapers then it's not welcome in my house. I have one more bottle to go through and then See ya later! 

Witch Hazel- This was from Walmart and was less than $2. It worked great, it's pretty decent ingredient wise since it only contains witch hazel and alcohol, and its cheap! I used this as a facial astringent, but it can also be used to clean cuts, burns, and any skin irritations. I am going to start making an apple cider vinegar facial toner so I probably will not repurchase this anytime soon.

Colgate Total Advanced Mouthwash- This worked fine. I got it for free, it didn't sting my mouth, but I would never pay full price for this. 

Nivea Touch Of Sparkle Moisturizing Bodywash- This was not at all moisturizing but it did smell nice. I got this for free, would never pay full price but it's a decent body wash. Enough said.

Dove Men+Care Sensitive Scalp Shampoo- This was Daniel's and it smelt ahhhhhhmazing. I seriously loved the smell of this shampoo. It was the perfect manly scent. Daniel said he liked it, but who knows... he probably doesn't even remember. I got this on clearance so it may be discontinued or maybe just repackaged. 

Ponds Original Fresh Wet Cleansing Towelettes- Hands down the very best makeup remover wipes I have ever used. I LOVED these! They didn't sting my eyes, they were quilted so they got every spec of makeup off, and they seemed to even exfoliate a bit. Did I mention I got this 15 pack for a whopping $0.15 cents at Target? Now do you see why I could just marry Target? Target, will you marry me?

Biore Self Heating One Minute Mask- I really enjoyed this face mask. I got a pack of 5 at Target for $0.04 after clearance and coupons.... do you see why? ;) This heated up for about 15 seconds and it really cleared my pores out big time. I have 4 more to go through and then you will get my final opinion on this, but so far I am liking this mask a ton.

Thann Aromatherapy Shampoo and Conditioner- My Mom left these at my house after she came to visit. She got these from the Marriott and although I wasn't super impressed by these I LOVED the scent. The really smelt amazing, just like the Bath and Body Works Aromatherapy line.

Burt's Bees Beeswax Lipbalm- This is my all-time favorite chapstick. It tingles on your lips, it's thick and super moisturizing and it's natural! Ohhhh yeah buddy. It's perfection. 

Ulta Nail Polish in Romance- I liked this nail polish a lot, it was a mauve color and was super pretty. I really only paint my toes because whenever I paint my fingers it chips the same day. So I am unsure if this has the best staying power, but on my toes it stayed on for months at a time. 

La Tourelle Coconut Oil- I absolutely love coconut oil. We used this on Eva every single day as body lotion and it does wonders for her sensitive skin. I have already repurchased, but I did try a new brand and it smells just like Almond Joy candies and it's pretty delightful!  

Yes To Baby Carrots Nourishing Baby Lotion- I got this on the YesTo website during their $2 sale. I really enjoyed this lotion, it was unscented and it worked really well. I would definitely consider repurchasing it if I could find it on sale again.

Crayola Bath Tub Paints- My sister Shannon bought these for Eva and she loved them! So thank you, Iqui, I love you! These "paints" were actually soap, so Eva could paint all over herself and then clean her body too! You can color all over the place and it just rinses off while cleaning so I am totally cool with that! 

Up & Up Petroleum Jelly- We used this as diaper rash cream and boy, am I glad it's gone. It didn't work that well and I really just don't love Vaseline. Ah well. 

Parent's Choice Baby Wipes- The have a very strong scent, it's a beautitiful scent but I usually go for unscented baby wipes. These were actually used on my nephew, who I babysit a few days a week, and they worked great! You can always buy the store brand baby wipes, they work just as well at a fraction of the cost. 

Kirkland Baby Wipes- These are my favorite baby wipes. My grandparents bought me and my sister huge boxes of these and we were so excited. We don't have a Costco membership and that's where these are from. These were thick, unscented, and pretty large and I really enjoy them! I have even used them to remove my makeup. Shhhh, don't tell.

Montagne Jeunesse Aloe Vera Face Spa Fabric Sheet Mask Review + Giveaway!

Hey guys!
Wanna see something creepy?

:) There I am. Looking oh, so glam. Here is my review of the Aloe Vera Face Spa, which is another one of the face masks that Montagne Jeunesse sent me to review. AND they are offering a giveaway to my readers/viewers, so make sure you enter the link at the bottom of the page!
Want to see my application and review of this mask on YouTube?
Then click that play button below. 

I really enjoyed this face mask but the scent was troubling. I could tell that it was meaning to smell like aloe but it had an underlying, chemical scent that I was not a fan of. This would never keep me from buying this mask just because this make was absolutely wonderful! This is a fabric, sheet mask so you just apply it to your face (see picture above) and leave it on for 5-10 minutes. After you remove the mask you massage any
remaining product into your skin and rinse your face clean. I loved that this mask was super cooling, extra tingly (in a fantastic way- it really felt like my pores were getting extra clean), and my pores literally disappeared! Not literally, but they got super teeeeeny tiny... so yeah this mask rocks. Buy it.

Or just enter the giveaway below for your chance to win a free face mask!

Please enter on a computer, I have had a few people tell me that the link does not work on phones. 

Thanks so much for being here!!!
