Shelley Says – VO5

Alright, I admit I use VO5 shampoo for more than just my hair. I use it as body wash, hand soap, and whatever else needs some VO5. It works fabulous, there are tons of "smell goods" (Island Coconut and Kiwi Lime Squeeze two of my favorite), but also a few more worth mentioning - Herbal Escapes Free me freesia, Tea Therapy Blackberry sage tea, Moisture Milks Strawberry and Cream and Silky Experience Shea Cashmere to choose from, (that's only a few) and it's only around a buck, give or take a few cents. This house always has at least two bottles of VO5 in both of our bathrooms at all times! And watch out if there is a sale on the already very inexpensive product or a coupon. Let's just say, I stay stocked up for a while when that happens. So I'm checking out this website VO5 Salon Series™ Archives - VO5 Haircare  and I notice VO5 offers men care products. I didn't know about this, but I’m fairly certain my husband sighs a little, each time he gets in the shower and his Irish Spring is … [Read more...]

Sunscreen Bands Review – Shelley Says

The reviewer has been compensated in the form of a gift card/money/coupon and/or received the product/service at a reduced price or for free. All opinions expressed are those of the reviewer and honest in nature. These handy little bands arrived in the mail within 2 days. Our family practically lives at the river in the summer, so I was excited to try these. We all get sunburned throughout the summer, especially Ashley and Jesse. They have "orange" hair and the fair skin to go with it. Yes, I always goob them up with tons of sunblock. Fast forward a few days after the sunscreen bands arrived. A little rain forecasted, a couple cloudy days, and a sick girl.. We're now ready to hit the river. The kids lined up as usual to get smothered in sunblock. (this is so cute. Imagine 3 kids lined up with their eyes shut tight and noses plugged) moving on.... I put the sunbands on them. The directions say to use SPF 15 or more. (we had SPF 30) and to wait to get them wet for 15 … [Read more...]

Udderly Smooth Review

Iowa winters are harsh and completely suck out any moisture in your body. It's finally June and I can say that we have transitioned into summer! We barely had a spring, the winter hung on for dear life. Keeping my skin hydrated is an every day chore, especially tough spots like my hands, elbows, and feet. Udderly Smooth dry skin cream to the rescue! I went sent a box full of Udderly Smooth products and the first place I wanted to slather the cream was my feet! My feet are a constant battle. I'm sure it's because I very rarely wear shoes and even less often wear socks. I'm almost always outside barefoot and I'm guessing this is what causes them to be so rough.   From the Udderly Smooth website: Pioneered by a Pharmacist, reasonably priced and made in America’s heartland. Use Udderly Smooth® daily for smooth, soft skin head to toe. After using a foot file, generously covering my feet in Udderly Smooth, and tolerating socks as long as I can, my feet have come a … [Read more...]

#FreshGuard by Efferdent

"I received this product for free from Smiley360 in exchange for my honest review. You can join Smiley360 here!" I hate my teeth. I have several that are broken and unfortunately, I just can't afford to get them fixed. I would love to have a nice, straight, white smile. Hopefully someday, though I still prefer to hang on to my own teeth. The other option is dentures, which my Mom actually wears. She has a full denture on top and partial on the bottom. At first, I thought they changed the entire shape of her face, but it has been so long since she got them that she looks normal again. Of course, I still giggle when she takes them out. Actually, my Mom is working on this review for me, but she's been super busy with moving recently. Fresh Guard by Efferdent offers some awesome products to keep dentures as well as mouthguards and removable braces clean. Those type of dental devices have all the nooks and crannies that stinky bacteria likes to hide in. I love the feeling of my … [Read more...]

Karmin Professional Titanium Flat Iron

The reviewer has been compensated in the form of a gift card/money/coupon and/or received the product/service at a reduced price or for free.  All opinions expressed are solely those of the reviewer based upon personal experience with the product. Every time I hear the word Titanium, I start singing the song. It gets stuck in my head and of course, reminds me of Pitch Perfect. Ok, now that I have that out of the way I can get to the point of the post. It's a review of the Karmin Professional Titanium Flat Iron.   Throughout middle school and high school, I took quite a bit of time to get my hair the way I wanted. I got haircuts frequently and I was always changing my hair color. I've always loved red, like a deep purple red, but it fades so quickly. I would blow dry my hair straight and then use a flat iron to keep it that way. The last few years, I have pretty much forgotten about my hair. It's pretty long and is badly in need of a haircut. It gets frizzy and … [Read more...]
