Sun'n'Fun Broad Spectrum SPF30 Sunscreen for Kids Review

Chocolate scented suntan lotion…? Yes, you read it. I’ve never seen any other scent of lotion but the normal coconut scented. We go through lots of lotion in my family as my husband is Irish and will burn just looking outside at the sun. lol. My children aren’t as fair but still don’t chance it. Sun'n'Fun Broad Spectrum Mineral Sunscreen really smells like chocolate but not too much like chocolate that my kids would want to eat it. The lotion is tinted a bit but doesn’t seem to tint the skin. There wasn’t any greasy feel to it, rubd in very easy and left my skin soft. Picture below shows the lotion, half rubbed in and then fully rubbed in. I loved that this was a lotion instead of a spray.

Brillante Globe String Lights Review

Brillante Party String Lights- Beautiful lights, bright, long lasting (though only have used them once for a few hours).

Packaging: They are packaged so nicely, it’s impossible to repackage them back that way. I’m a little worried about breaking them & will provide additional review in a few months.

Product Use: The bulbs got a little warm, especially when I just did the test in the package. I did try them with a chinese lantern but need to get more information about if that is an acceptable use. Might be a bit too close anyway. I liked the lights and would suggest the best use is outside on a deck. Can not be left up over the course of a season but great for parties or BBQ’s. Can’t wait for our summer annual party to spotlight these.

Premium Delicates Laundry Bags, Set of 4 Review

My daughter loves her “blue bear”. He’s been there for her since birth and at 4, he’s the staple to her universe (excluding mommy, Daddy and her brother). I’ve washed him a few times in a pillow case or in an open top laundry bag and by the time I see him again he’s in the middle of shirts in the washer and dryer. He never seems to stay in the bag. He’s fragile being toted around from place to place and slept with every night. He’s 4… and ragged. I used one of the Inside Smarts laundry bags for "blue" and my glorious VS bras (which cost 8 times more than blue bear but are replaceable). I put them in the bag, tucked the zipper in and honestly prayed nothing would happen (otherwise I’d have to blame the dog). He came out of the wash & dryer unscathed… it was a MIRACLE. For any mommy with a child that has that special stuffed animal, blanket or pillow, it’s worth thousands finding a solution to keep that treasure as long as possible. I can’t find a replacement blue bear if my life depended on it which my sanity would. Love these bags and am gifting two of the four out because no one should go without these. Blue Bear came out clean and smelling great.- Clean & dried with the rest of the clothing- Pictures below.
