Salonpas Review


I have been a Salonpas user for over a decade. I found it after injury my back when I was working in a nursing home. I have stuck with it ever since for all of my aches and pains. I have even turned my family and friends into Salonpas users. I have always found the product to be a quality product, and fairly priced compared to the competition.  With that being said, I would love to give you a quick overview on the different products I was sent. Including the new ones that include lidocaine.


 Now, personally I am a patch lover! I used to put them on before my shift would start, and now I can just put them on myself and continue on with my day when my muscles are acting up. There are a few different types of patches, All equally as great, but to meet different needs.  The gel patch hot (pictured on the right) will soothe on contact. Also, it will deliver a very nice deep penetrating wave of heat for approximately 8 hours. 

 The next patch, pictured on the left, are actually the first patch I tried. These ones are 20% larger, and have better adhesion and more medicine then the original patch. These are fantastic. I have used them for so long. And they are great to just keep in your desk or purse in case you ever have a need. 


 This next pain relief patch, pictured to the right, its the strongest labeled pain reliever available over the counter without a prescription. My husband who does a lot of manual labor, loves these patches for when he is having a rough day with his shoulders. He puts one on and it can last up to twelve hours, so he knows he is set for his entire work day. 

 This patch, pictured left, is great if you need a bit of numbing to go along and help your aches and pains. With having the maximum strength lidocaine you can buy without a prescription. 
 I personally love the liquid pictured on the left. I am able to roll this on my husbands back after he comes in from working on a car, and not have to worry about any of it getting on my inner wrists. He says it works fantastic. And really helps him relax. This also has lidocaine in it. 

My husband works in construction, and in a warehouse. We recently had a few of his coworkers over for a celebration. Every one of these guys were complaining of back pain from the hard day of work they had. I pulled out the different products and had the guys all trying them. I have never seen such relief come over so many grown and in shape men in my life. They were all so thankful. 



Topical pain relievers are great for all your aches and pains (with an exception of headaches of course). They are very conveient and keep focus just where you actually need the medication, rather then having to travel all through your blood stream before actually helping your pains. It works so quickly. Within minutes you are going to feel relief.

Plain Toothbrush Review and Giveaway!





Growing up, I remember going to my grandparents and great grandparents houses, and these toothbrushes were always in the bathroom. My great grandmother would always make sure every Christmas, my sister and I would get one of these style toothbrushes with our gifts. I grew to love them when I was younger. But, as I got older it has become harder and harder to find just a basic toothbrush.


Plain Toothbrushes has a great selection of different versions of the classic toothbrush including:


  • Extra Soft
  • Soft
  • Medium
  • Hard
  • Extra Hard
  • Childrens



After receiving these in the mail, and getting over the great nostalgia feeling that over came me when I opened the package. I started to think about how great these would be for our loved ones that may suffer from Dementia. I used to work in nursing homes, and to give someone something from their past that they could connect with would be really good for their memory.





I then of course needed to go brush my teeth to see how it felt. I will admit currently I am using a pricey brand of electric toothbrush, that I have grown to appreciate. But, there is nothing like using a good old fashioned toothbrush on your teeth. It really makes you think about the difference between then and now for a toothbrush. And how you really don't need the "fancy" handles, colored bristles, heads that bend. You can get the job done just as well, if not better with just your basic toothbrush.




I love that the brush handles have the type of bristle that are on them. These toothbrushes also have other uses including:

  • Extra Soft works great for exfoliating your lips and face
  • Extra Hard works great for dentures
  • Extra Hard also works great for grout





I love being able to take a step back into the better days, when life was simpler about picking out a toothbrush. And you didn't have to spend thirty minutes trying to figure out which toothbrush is going to be the best bet for your mouth.

If you would like to order some of these great toothbrushes for you, or your family, please click here.

Milk + Sass Review and Giveaway!




I have thick thick hair. People comment about how they wish their hair could be as thick as mine constantly. And I will be honest, I hate my hair. It constantly has tangles and snarls. It takes for ever to try and brush out with it currently being to the middle of my back. And as a mom, I some days just don't have the time to get it all completely brushed out. I rip through it as fast as I can, This results in my daily look being the every loving "mom bun."





Milk + Sass has a couple of great products that they sent out to me to try. I would like to start by talking about the Macarons. When I first received them, I thought, oh these are so cute. But there is no way that this is going to tame my mop. So I took all my pictures for you to see, and decided what the heck. I want to give it a try. My hair was dry, which means with any other brush there would be no getting through my hair without some sort of product to soften up all the snarls my hair magically gets. I grabbed my mint citron macaron and went at my hair. I didn't go hard, just super soft brushing my hair. I was amazed on how easily the macaron went through my hair. There was no tugging, pulling or ripping. And in the end, my hair felt so soft and smooth. My hair wasn't all poofed out three foot away from my head looking like Frankenstein.


I love that the macaron comes in six super cute colors. They fit perfectly in the palm of your hand. And even come with a compact mirror so you can check yourself out on the go. I immediately put a macaron in my purse, and one in my bathroom. These are much better then other small travel brushes I have tried in the past. Remember those flip brush numbers that would get stuck in your hair when we were younger? They were awful on your hair, and you always ended up getting hair stuck inside of the spot where it closed. I love that they way the macaron closes, you don't have to worry about wrappers and what not getting in your brush. Or loose hair getting all over your purse.



Another great product Milk + Sass has out is there Sugar Twist line. Having this thick hair, and always rocking a mom bun I either have hair ties that are way to tight on the first day or two, then all of a sudden they become so stretched out, I am having to wrap around my hair four times and still having to re put up my hair multiple times today because it is either pulling, or sagging. There is no comfort. I was so curious on how the Sugar Twist worked. I will be honest. I was super skeptical about them, because how is something like this, going to hold in all this hair without it falling? I wasn't worried about it being to tight, but not secure enough.





Oh my gosh, I was so happy when I tried one out. I took my old hair tie out, and put in the sugar twist after a great brush through with the macaron. I expected it to hold for ten minutes. I must report, I played with my kids, running around the house. I went swimming. Cooked dinner. Laid down even, not once did I need to re do my mom bun. It never sagged or anything. There is no pulling in weird spots on my head. No headaches from to tight hair ties. This is like sweet heaven in my hair. I love it. Milk + Sass also has great color combinations of their sugar twist. So if you want to be sassy while out and about you can, or if you want it to be less noticeable you can do that too.








If you would like to check out macarons, or sugar twist. And order some for you and your family, please click here.

Balmshot Review and Giveaway!








I have a personal obsession with a great lip balm. I am very particular on lip balms that I use. I don't want anything that is going to leave that weird coat on my lips like child hood lip balms do. But I want to make sure that my lips are soft and smooth. My husband hates gross lip balm kisses, and has the same likes in lip balms as I do.






When I first saw Balmshot I thought to myself, "I wonder if this is more of a novelty item, or if this is good lip balm." Well, just so every one is clear. This is fantastic lip balm. It is soft on your lips, not waxy feeling. The shot gun shell casing is just an extra measure to make it look even cooler. Balmshot is the only lip balm on the market that comes in this awesome shot gun shell casing. Which, I know some guys (my husband included) would much prefer to have this in his pocket rather then your store brands of lip balm.





I was sent five tubes of Balmshot:


  • Raspberry
  • Classic 
  • Cool Mint
  • Pomegranate 
  • Vanilla Mint






I love that there is casing colors for men or women to enjoy without feeling to girly or manly. I tried Raspberry first. It smells and has a great flavor. It is not super waxy where you want to immediately take it back off your lips. My husband really enjoyed the classic and cool mint. I love that Balmshot has 15 SPF protection with aloe and vitamin E to help protect from sunburn as well as windburn. Which makes it great for year round protection.



The history of how Balmshot started I thought was actually quite interesting:

"Wayne S. Forrey, the company's founder and product inventor, contracted lip cancer in 1983 due to his outdoor lifestyle and frequent sunburned lips. After successful lip reconstruction surgery, he began using lip balm everyday to protect and moisturize his lips. Wayne became dissatisfied with industry standard lip balm dispensers because the knurled disk base would twist and rotate in his pants pockets...thereby mashing the balm into the cap...making a gooey mess. Many people told Wayne they experienced the exact same gooey mess. To solve this problem, Wayne went to his garage and invented a much better lip balm dispenser system including a firmer twist base and tighter fitting cap. BALMSHOT was the result of this innovative effort, and a new Idaho company was born in 2010."




I think these are perfect for year round, and would make great stocking stuffers. Or even in little gift baskets for weddings and what not.


If you would like to check out Balmshot, and order some for your family, friends and yourself of course please click here.

Cozy Phones Review








 My kids both own kindles. They use them to watch videos, play games, read books. Keep busy on long road trips. The worst part is, they have to have to volume up on them full blast constantly. Then they fight about not being able to hear. And my husband and I get so frustrated because we will be in the front seat, unable to hear each other saying a word to one another over the battle of the kids games. I have tried traditional headphones in the past, but my youngest hates the feeling of them, and my older son broke his rather quickly. It was a mess.





 I was so thankful when I found Cozy Phones. Cozy Phones, are headband style headphones. They are cute, comfortable, and the kids versions even regulate how loud they will go to protect you little ones ears! My boys liked these a lot, and everyone in our house hold were excited for them to try them out.  My older son took the fox pair immediately. My younger son used the unicorn. It was super easy to set the headphones up for the kids. I just had to do a little adjusting to make sure they were over their ears and plug in. My boys enjoyed being able to listen to their shows in peace. Dad and I enjoyed that we no longer had to hear their bickering over not being able to hear, and we could have a conversation without hearing Mickey Mouse.




Now, I want to make sure to point out, Cozy Phones are not only for kids. They make them for adults as well. They also have so many characters and styles that you are sure to find the perfect set for you and your loved ones.



To check out and order Cozy Phones for you and your family, please click here.

Homework Caddy Review





Having my oldest go through pre-school last year, I found out just how many papers a kid can bring home in a day. School papers, lunch menus, and field trip slips. Plus all of his artwork and such through the week. I ended up with papers every where. There is still papers I am trying to sort through when he is sleeping, so he doesn't get offended when I recycle some of his old artwork. I realized after seeing the refrigerator, top of my microwave, top of the dog cage, tables, and counters just fill with papers that there has to be a better solution to bring him into the new school year.





Finding the Homework Caddy has already proven to be a sign from above for the unanswered prayers I have said while going through all of these papers. There are three different color patterns you can choose from. All of which are equally awesome. They are perfect for any school age, whether it is public school, private school, online school, or even home school It is the perfect way to get your child, and yourself organized. This will teach your child at an early age on how to keep organized. Which can help as they grow older.

  • Magnetic Dry Erase Board with a calendar as well as a spot to hold your dry erase marker. 
  • A center display window, that is perfect for lunch menus.

Keepzit Kooler Review and Giveaway!








Michigan summers mean a lot of hot weather. My husband and I hate when we open a drink, and the can gets sweaty really quickly, and our drinks get warm so fast! I was searching for a product that would help keep our drinks colder longer, and I came across Keepzit Kooler.  Something I loved about Keepzit Kooler is that you can fit three different size drinks in the kooler. Drink holders I have seen in the past, you can fit a can. That is it, just your average can. Which my husband likes to drink out of glass bottles, and we also like our water to stay cold.




Keepzit Kooler's are not your typical foam soft style coozies. They are way better then any thing I have seen in the past. Keepzit Kooler's have hard outer shells that are mad of ABS plastic, which are impact resistant. They are super light, yet really strong. I also love that they are dishwasher safe. Because, I am awful at hand washing things. I hate doing it. So anything I can throw into my dishwasher, it is going in. Keepzit Kooler's are made with two insulating layers, and designed to fit canned and bottled drinks ranging from 12 ounce cans to 16.9 ounce bottles. They have two insulating layers. This will help keep your drinks colder longer. You also have no problems with sweat and condensation.

Another thing that I absolutely love about Keepzit Kooler, they have a cup holder that will hold your drink in your Kooler! I know in the past, it has been a pain in the rear when you try and put something over your drink to help you. Then it doesn't fit in any cup holders. Bringing your drinks out on the boat fishing, they won't stay in a cup holder. So you get to chose, sweating warm drinks, or no spot to put your drink, and you can potentially spill it everywhere. This universal holder can be put most anywhere. My husband attached it to the pool ladder for now, and can not wait until he can use it on the boat when we go fishing.





I love that Keepzit Kooler comes in different designs, and you can also customize them to your liking.  Family reunions, wedding favors, work parties? They have so many uses. I will not be putting my cans and bottles in anything else.

To check out Keepzit Kooler for yourself and order now, please click here.

FunSparks Deluxe Ring Toss Game Review




FunSparks knows all about fun in the sun. This time with Deluxe Ring Toss.  My boys love playing all different outdoor games. And I will be honest, I would much rather have a lot of different things for them to do outside, rather then them sitting inside watching tv all day long. So the more games the better in my home. Plus, we all know in the summer time, it is the time of open houses, family reunions, beach trips, and other fun summer parties.




I love Deluxe Ring Toss because you have hard plastic rings for playing outside, or you can use the rope rings for indoors to keep your kids, and family and friends active even on a rainy day. All of the directions on set up and how to play are right on the box, so there is no reason to have any arguments when you are in a hard core competition with your Uncle.





The set up of the game was so easy. Everything is made out of wood, and so nicely put together. You just have to hand screw in the pegs. I love that there is a great storage bag, so you can make sure you can take it anywhere. This helps with hand eye coordination, as well as concentration and completing tasks. My boys spent hours playing with this. I also brought it up to my family reunion, everyone had a great time, from big to small.



If you would like to find out more about this, and other great games from FunSparks, please click here. You can also order this from Amazon by clicking here.

Ankomn Turn-N-Seal Review







I will be honest, I have looked at vacuum seal containers in the past. I always watch those late night info-mercials and think, "Oh these are really cool, but who wants to take out extra things from in their cabinets just to be able to seal your container." It has always made me think twice before purchasing. So when I found Ankomn Turn-N-Seal storage containers. I was so excited to be able to see what it was all about.





The Turn-N-Seal has a simple two step process to vacuum seal. So no need for all the extra gadgets in your house. Let's be real, you know they will get lost. After you place your food in the container, you simply reapply the lid and turn it to seal. 6 turns is enough. That will start suctioning out the air from the container. There is a small indicator that will sink down to show you that it is sucking the air out. This is perfect because I am constantly only using half a tomato, or other veggies on my husbands wraps. But no matter what I do, I can not find a way to keep them fresh as long as I need to have them. I hate wasting food. Reopening your container is a breeze. You just push down on the indicator to release the pressure. The lid will then open as normal.



The Turn-N-Seal are:

  • Stackable
  • Dishwasher Safe
  • Refrigerator Safe 
  • Work great for marinating! 
  • Helps keep things fresh 6 times longer
Ankomn has been kind enough to offer readers a discount of 15% off if you enter the code: littlehelpersinlife
