Dove Detox & Purify Dry Shampoo

I have tried several different dry shampoos. With long, thick hair that can get oily, it's been hard to find one that I really like! 

Enter Dove-Detox and Purify Dry Shampoo. I have to say I was impressed!! The first thing I noticed is that there wasn't a white powder/residue in my hair as I was using it. I also noticed the lovely scent, that lasted a while, not just while I was applying it. It gave my hair a little volume, and a little (good) shine, and it took out a lot of the oil. 

I got a few compliments at work, and most did not believe that it was from a dry shampoo.

 I did get this free to review, but I liked it enough that I'll be buying more!

Shiatsu Massager

I'm in love with my new Naturalico Shiatsu Massager! You can plug it into the wall, or the car (although I don't know when I'd actually use it in the car); no batteries needed. It's heated, and you can reverse the massaging direction with the touch of a button.

Its prime use is the neck and shoulders, although there are instructions for lower back and feet. I love using it on my neck and shoulders with the heat. The heat is warm, but not hot, which is nice and relaxing. The pressure and rotation of the massager feels like a person giving the massage- it's wonderful! Some similar massagers chop/pound/vibrate; this one actually kneads. After a long day on the computer at work, and then the long drive home in rush hour traffic, this is the perfect way to wind down and relax. 

While it is completely portable, and the box that it comes in has a handle and is pretty sturdy, it is a little on the heavy side (but most of these kind of massagers are!).

I recently got to test out a sample of ZzzQuil thanks to Influenster. If you have trouble sleeping, you should definitely try out ZzzQuil! It comes in LiquiCaps and liquid form.

Perks of ZzzQuil: 
- It is non-habit forming 
- You sleep soundly & wake up refreshed 
- It can help you fall asleep in less than 20 minutes

As a reminder though, ZzzQuil is only for sleep, NOT for any kind of pain relief. Please make sure that you are giving yourself 7-8 hours of sleep when you take it.

Middle Ages

We now have four Carole P Roman books in our library. I have to say that, unfortunately, this one is our least favorite of all of them. It is about twice as long as the other three books, and it didn't hold my son's attention like the others do. I also noticed there were several spots where editing and proofing were missed. It didn't seem to flow as easily, either. 

However, it does tell of the time period (in an age appropriate manner too) - showcasing the naming practices, the clothing, different types of food, religion, schooling, social structure, etc which was definitely nice! It also has a section at the end of some famous people from the Middle Ages; as well as a glossary. 

I did receive this book complementary for my review. All opinions are my own.

Always Radiant

Always Radiant with Flexfoam- Wear what you want with these leak free pads. They are super absorbent; yet they are thin and lightweight. Very comfortable! With these pads you really can wear those skinny white jeans (I wouldn't wear at all but that's just me. Hehe) during that time of the month.
