OraMD Review & Giveaway

I think I've tried all of Trusted Health Care Products except for the Runners Choice (but I don't run). OraMD fights cavities, plaque, and tartar. I hate to admit it, but I'm one of those who have had major teeth problems. I definitely recommend trying this.
It supports healthy gums, and also helps fight against that awful bad breath. I don't chew gum a lot, so every once in awhile I'll rely on this. The benefits of OraMD:

Ingredients proven to kill periodontal bacteria in Clinical Study
Helps prevent costly dental procedures using the OraMD 5-Step
Recommended by Dentists Worldwide
100% natural ingredients (almond, spearmint and peppermint oils)

Cheaper than Crest Pro-Health products – save up to 39%

The list could go on and on

I should probably ask my brother and sister n law if they've ever heard of or even tried OraMD and what their thoughts are. They are both dentists! I've started using this during my normal routine in brushing and I'm hoping to see a difference in my mouth soon. I go back to the dentist in a few weeks and hopefully they'll have good things to say. It's definitely strong the first time you use it, but you'll get used to it. I've been satisfied with all of the products I've tried from Trusted Health Products. Enter below for your chance to win a bottle for yourself. Three lucky winners will win. Good luck!

Soapbox Influenster Review

Influenster sent me their VoxBox and in it was some Soapbox Shampoo and Conditioner. Right now Soapbox is mainly soap and body wash. With every purchase soap is donated to those in need all over the world.
You hear about toothbrushes, clothes, and food being donated, but now there's soap. Those in need are able to clean themselves with this bar of soap. Soap = Hope. What a great movement if you ask me.
I was sent Bataua Shampoo and Conditioner. "Bataua Fruit oil is native to the Amazonian rainforests of Brazil and long regarded for its root-to-tip hair repairing talent. Packed with essential fatty acids and amino acids, Bataua fruit oil works by nourishing both the scalp and hair. Get your daily dose of Bataua oil and say “AlĂ´” to strong, vibrant hair!". It smells so incredibly good, and just found out that Target sells them too. This is awesome for me, because it detangles. It's also paraben free.

Check out the different soaps and body washes that Soapbox has to offer. Make a purchase. Help a family in need.

Bitchin' Sauce Review

Bitchin’ Sauce is a vegan, gluten-free, almond-based, savory sauce that is rich in nutrients & packed with flavor. Its smooth & creamy consistency makes it perfect for dipping vegetables & chips, spreading on sandwiches or wraps, or smothering over your favorite savory foods.
The sauce was created by a brother and sister team. They started selling their sauce at local farmers markets to recognized (best place to do that!) You have to read their whole story here.. it made me smile. So back to the sauces: First off... They are different, but they are GOOD. They are good to spread on breads, eat with veggies, eat with chips, or any other way your heart desires to use them. They are also good to bring to a party and it's a good story to tell for those who have never tried these Sauces. I have a vegan friend out in Cali, and I'm sure she would love me to share this with her. I don't really label myself when it comes to what I eat, but I do like to try new foods, and I'm glad I was able to try these Bitchin' Suaces. My favorite by far is the "Heat" sauce. They aren't kidding when they labeled it "heat" either. You take one taste of it and automatically your mouth is on fire. I'm obsessed with that. I love heat. I pretty much used this with carrots. The other flavors are: Original, Chipotle, Cilantro Chili, Pesto, and Bombay. So many sauces to choose from, so many ways to use it. They have a recipe page and there are a few of them I want to check out. I normally just use my dips/sauces with chips and veggies.

They also offer Bars. The bars are Paleo and made with organic dates and coconut. So good, so chewy, so delicious! They are worth a try! You should definitely check them out! Find out more on facebook, and instagram.

Glass With a Twist Review

Glass with a Twist is a site where you can get engraved and personalized glassware. March 21st, 2015 is a very special date for me and when I asked to review Glass with a Twist, I knew that I wanted to incorporate that date. I was able to pick with glasses I wanted. I had the choice to choose from: beer, wine, champagne, shot, cocktail, martini glasses and coffee mugs. That's a lot of different glasses to choose from. We have so many beer and wine glasses, and we won't really take many shots, we don't like martinis, and we have enough coffee mugs, so I went with a Cocktail Glass. There were three different types of Cocktail Glasses to choose from: Rock, Highball, or Hurricane. I choose the Hurricane ones.
So with Glasses with a Twist... you have some options. You can personalize it with just text, or you can customize it with your own art, or art from their gallery. I didn't even browse through the art, but there are some pretty nifty graphics you can use. Some of them include: four leaf clover, pumpkins, smiley faces, skulls...ect -- It's pretty cool that you can personalize a glass, and the variety of glasses is pretty cool too.

Glass with a Twist would make a great gift for someone or even something for yourself at home. So why is 3.21.15 such an important date for me, and why did I decide to use this for my glass of choice to review? 3.21.15 is the date when my Fiance proposed to me. He was actually quite surprised when he saw the glasses and thought it was such a cool idea. Go check it out for yourself. Personalize a glass.

Golden Girl Granola Review

I don't know about you, but I like to spice up my breakfasts from time to time... Sometimes I like egg whites, sometimes I like protein shakes, sometimes I like yogurt, and sometimes I like Granola! Golden Girl Granola was generous enough to send me some of their granola to try.

Our family created Golden Girl Granola out of a love of gourmet food. We began by baking small batches of granola in our own kitchen and selling it at the farmers’ market in our hometown of Carlisle, MA.
Today we still use the finest ingredients and hand-stir each small batch to create a lightly crunchy, wholegrain treat. Our customers say it is the best granola they have ever had!
Our granola is excellent as a cereal, a topping, or a snack right out of the bag. It’s head-over-heels delicious!"


Golden Girl Granola is:
whole-grain and healthful
uses the finest, all-natural ingredients
locally-produced, with locally-sourced ingredients, whenever possible
wheat-free, and is produced in a gluten-free kitchen
non-GMO hand-crafted in small, artisan batches with the utmost care

I received four different flavors to try
Bluesberry -- Tastes amazing in yogurt. It's baked with blueberries, coconut flakes, and almonds.
Forest Maple -- I cannot stop eating this one! I brought it to work with me and it's pretty much almost gone. I put it in my yogurt, but it doesn't matter, I kept refilling and ended up eating more of the granola than I did the yogurt. I'm addicted. Maybe it's the maple syrup flavor that just hooks me.. not sure, but this is by far my favorite flavor.
The Original I have enjoyed with some milk. Coconut Flakes, honey and almonds. Very crunchy, and flavorful.
Tropical -- the only flavor I have yet to try though. Although it says it's great for salad toppings, and I have a salad almost every day. I need to break into this bag. It's baked with dried mangoes, cashews, and coconut flakes.

They have other flavors. Check them out here.
They also sent me a recipe book, and there are many different recipes you can incorporate the granola in. To find out more, follow on twitter, or visit on facebook. I can't wait to dig into the Forest Maple Granola tomorrow morning!

Dial Soap Review and Giveaway

I don't know about you, but I think I'm good on hand soap for quite some time. Heck I even have some hand soap leftover in the guest bathroom from the last time PurexInsiders sent me some soap to try! Dial is one of my favorite brands. I use their body wash as well. I was sent two different hand soaps to try, and two lucky readers will win a coupon for a free bottle of hand soap! I received Miracle Hand Soap, and also, Deep Cleansing Sugar Cane Husk Scrub soap.
A few weeks back I was given the Miracle Body Wash to try as well! I'm more of a fan of the Deep Cleansing scrub than I am of the regular hand soap. I've always been that way. I always feel like I get a better cleanse when I use something that has some sort of texture to it. I always feel that the scrub eats away the dirt better than normal soap. Don't get me wrong, both are great for washing, I just lean more towards the scrub. Both soaps leave your hands feeling smooth afterwards! To learn more about the products click each link: Sugar Cane Scrub and Miracle Oil Soap. There are other scents you can check out as well! Winning that free coupon would give you that chance! Enter below for your chance to win! Remember two lucky readers will win. Disclosure: The reviews and or opinions on this blog are my own opinions . No monitory compensation was received.

Xylichew Review

How often do you find yourself chewing gum? I used to be a HUGE gum chewer, but then I looked at the sugar count and carb count and had to cut back. I recently discovered XyliChew and started chewing again. It is by far good for you chewing gum. It actually tastes just like gum you find in the grocery stores too. "Xylichew is gum for people seeking great taste and quality ingredients. Made with no chemicals or artificial sweeteners, Xylichew promotes a healthier mouth, and is safe for those with diabetes and many food allergies."
Xylichew is:
Made in the USA
Gluten Free
No Sugar
Made with BIRCH XYLITOL
GMO Free
It's good for your teeth
Vegan
Soy Free

I started chewing Xylichew the other day. I started with peppermint. It reminded me of Orbitz. Orbitz never loses the flavor and neither did this piece. This weekend I brought with me the Fruit flavor, and it literally reminds me of Juicy Fruit only tastier. I'm really excited to try Cinnamon, and Spearmint and a little hesitant to try the black licorice. I've never been a fan of black licorice. Before I tried Xylichew I wanted to know what it was and the definition is: "Xylitol is derived from fruits and veggies and is a natural sweetener. Xylitol is technically not a real sugar, rather a sugar alcohol. It is very similar to sugar yet it has 40% fewer calories…win, win! Xylitol is also naturally produced within the human body as a by-product to a healthy metabolism.".

You can find this gum on: amazon, vitacost, sprouts, and supplement warehouse, and other places, just check their website. It's very good. It's a great alternative to your regular chewing gum. It has way better benefits. Check them out on facebook, and twitter.

Gorp Clean Energy Bars Review

Clean eating is a word you hear a lot these days. What does that mean? It means you're not eating any processed foods. You know what you're putting in your body. I've been trying to eat a more "clean" diet as of lately, and am always looking for foods to help with that. I stumbled across Gorp World, and they make Clean Energy Bars.
There are no fake sugars, preservatives, fillers, or colouring. No high fructose corn syrup or scary-sounding ingredients you can barely pronounce. That's the kind of foods I'm looking for. Gorp is for people like me. These bars are healthy and convenient. Here's a little blurb about the Gorp Community: This business isn't just about making a clean energy bar or making a dime. It’s about people. From the great people that chose to work beside us, to the homeless and hungry folks in our own backyards, to the forgotten child trapped in poverty in a foreign land.
We commit to give 10% of our net profits to third-world agricultural initiatives and children’s aid programs. As a family and as a company, we have written our passion into our business plan!
We aim to help people. Whether someone needs to eat, play, be encouraged, or have access to clean drinking water, we will do our best to take care of the Earth while honoring and serving our fellow man by doing what we can to help.
It's that simple.

So here are some facts about Gorp:
11 Grams of protein
6 Grams of fiber
Antioxidants from green coffee extract
NOTHING FAKE INSIDE
Tastes Good

The flavors:
Cocoa, Hemp and Almonds === tasty === great for on the go === you get that cocoa taste in every bite. This bar aids in the recovery, repair, and growth of muscles.
Peanut Butter and Apple === two of my favorite things ==== this bar is good for cardiovascular health.
Peanut Butter and Raspberry === This is their take on PB & J

Gorp bars are full of flavor, full of good ingredients, and full of energy. They are great post workout bars also. The biggest thing for me is that their clean.

Power Crunch Reviews

Have you ever had a wafer cookie? Those are good aren't they? How would you like to try a protein bar that tastes just like a wafer cookie only better? If that sounds good to you, go check out Power Crunch. They are by far in my own list of top 5 protein bars! Their Mission:
Our team is passionate about the science of protein. Our mission is to surprise and delight people of all ages and ethnicities throughout the world with great tasting, superior hydrolyzed whey protein-based products that can help each and every one of them live healthy, vibrant, active lives. Our uncompromising commitment to delivering total excellence in everything we do ensures that our nutritious products are of the highest quality possible and will always deliver an unexpectedly wow, great tasting experience. Enjoy!

So they offer three different types of protein bars: Original, Choklat, and Crisp. There are 7 different flavors in the original category:
Peanut Butter Fudge
Triple Chocolate
Peanut Butter Creme
French Vanilla Creme
Cookies and Creme
Chocolate Mint
and Wild Berry Creme

Don't they just all sound delicious? If you're a Chocolate fan then the Choklat bars may just be for you. Two flavors: Dark and Milk Chocolate

Then we have the Crisps. The flavors:
Chocolate Brownie Wonder --
Sweet Vanilla Dream --
and then there are two coming soon
Chocolate Peanut Obsession and Peanut Butter Bliss.

As I type all these names, my mouth begins watering. I received a few of the original flavors, but I'm on a manhunt for the Crisps now. I want to try the Sweet Vanilla Dream pretty bad. I can't tell you what my favorite flavor is because I like them all. They are REALLY that good. What I really like about them besides the flavor and taste is that they are full or protein, and the sugar count is low. I can replace a meal with one of these bars and feel full for a while. I like using them as pre-workout snacks though, and sometimes just a snack on the go. I'm highly a fan of these Power Crunch bars.

They also offer Protein Powders. They have four flavors: Cookies n Creme, Vanilla Creme, Double Chocolate and Cafe Mocha.
They too taste like the real thing. They are full of flavor and offer tons of protein. 20 grams of protein in the vanilla packet. Talk about filling!

If you're looking for a great tasting protein snack then Power Crunch may just be for you. It tastes great, and is packed with protein and completely guilt free. You can order them online, or you can find them in most stores. Check them out on facebook, twitter.
