*NEW* Emergen-C Chewables

Need a little more support for your immune system? Emergen- C added a new product to their line, chewables! I was able to try their  Emergen-C Immune + orange blast

Emergen-C Chewables

These chewables have a power packed formula that provides more vitamin C than 10 oranges! Can you eat 10 orange in a day? That’s a lot of peeling to do.

Loaded with B vitamins to support energy naturally

Antioxidants : Vitamin D, C & Zinc to support your immune system.
EmergenCTablets

Take 2 chews daily.

It has that tangy orange flavor , easy to chew, pleasant on the taste buds. Make sure to drink something afterwards because your tongue will have a little orange/yellow color to it after chewing. They also don’t have a weird after taste which is a big thing when it comes to supplements. They either taste bad or an after taste but no need to worry with these.

For ages 14 & up.

 

Did I feel different after taking them? Not really but it feels good taking something that has vitamins that do the body good.  I won’t  buy these often, maybe if I feel like I need a little extra vitamin C, zinc, vitamin D to help support my immune system.

Floss your way to a cleaner mouth with Listerine Ultraclean floss

Did you know that Reach Floss is now Listerine floss? It has been rebranded.

Listerine Floss

This floss is shred resistant
Has a fresh mint flavor
Has microgrooves that grabs up to 2x more plaque than other glide floss
Easy glides between teeth

For best results:
Break off about 18 inches of floss.
Hold floss between forefinger & thumb
Glide it between teeth in a gentle rubbing motion.
When you get to the gum line curve it into a C shape to go around tooth.
Hold tightly against tooth
Remember to get behind the teeth in the back.

About 50% of Americans floss daily, 31% floss less than daily, and 18% do not floss at all

Benefits of flossing:
* Your dentist won’t lecture you lol ( save $$)
*Prevents tooth loss
*Prevents heart disease
*Helps prevent cavities, gum disease, bad breath
*Good looking teeth

What I thought:
I really like the shape of this. Looks pleasing to the eye & it makes it easy to grip while you are getting out the floss. I also like that you can see how much floss is inside. Nothing like going to pull out floss and you only had a little left. At first I thought this floss would break right away because the floss is a little different than what I’ve been using. It was thinner, felt plastic like, just flimsy. I was wrong though because it didn’t break at all. It glided through my teeth with ease, getting every crevice clean. I like this floss so much better because it is thinner and comfortable to use. No snagging , breaking, or shredding… just clean teeth. When I first opened the floss there was a strong scent to the floss but while flossing it wasn’t as strong or overpowering. I really prefer this floss because I feel like it will do a better job since it is thinner & able to comfortably able to get between teeth to clean them.

You can find Listerine floss at many stores like CVS, Walgreens, Rite Aid, Target, Walmart & more.

Do you floss after or before you brush your teeth?

Nutrition Now Gummy MultiVites Review #NutritionNow #FreeSample

I’m sort of bad at taking vitamins , I’m not going to lie. I know I should be taking them but when the pills are huge and/or taste gross I end up putting them off.

Smiley360 sent me berry Nutrition Now women’s gummy vitamins. I started taking the the next morning after receiving them. I love these. These taste great, easy to chew, & swallow. It makes taking vitamins enjoyable. The berry flavor is a great choice, I almost want to take more than 2 because they are that tasty. I haven’t missed a day, it’s the first thing I do now when I get up. Gummies I have taken in the past have had a gritty texture or chalky taste, these do not. I haven’t noticed a big change but do feel energized when I take them & feel good knowing I am getting essential nutrients.

Restful sleep with Dr. Xu’s Restful Sleep Natural Sleep Aid Supplement

Dr. Xu's Restful Sleep Natural Sleep Aid Supplement

What it does:
– Calms and quiets a restless mind and body
– Promotes a full night’s restful sleep
– Nourishes chi to bring harmony and balance into the body
– Promotes calm throughout the day
– Restores vitality to the spleen and heart organ systems

Dr. Yan Ping Xu is a certified practitioner of Oriental medicine and board certified herbalist, who developed this safe, non-addictive, Restful Sleep natural sleep supplement to help restore balance to your spleen’s—and whole body—chi (energy) so you can have a full night of restorative sleep and wake up refreshed, never drowsy. The spleen is where she says is the key to a healthy nights sleep.

In traditional Chinese Medicine, it’s believed that when you’re having trouble sleeping, it’s your spleen’s chi that is off balance. When your spleen chi is out of balance, you can experience worry, fatigue, anxiety, and restlessness ; all of which can contribute to a poor night’s sleep.

The ancient herbal blend that the Chinese have been relying on for thousands of years to remedy sleep problems by rebalancing chi is called Yi-Fang. Restful Sleep’s formula uses the same exact Chinese herbs in Yi-Fang that have been used for over 2,000 years! And to make sure the herbs are pure and top quality, Dr. Xu personally selects each herb on her yearly trips to China, then makes sure each herb is processed, purified, and sterilized to remove any toxins—all done right here in the U.S.A. She also includes essential minerals like calcium , magnesium, and potassium.
Adding those help the body absorbs the herbs more efficiently into the body so they can get to work faster. Unlike traditional Chinese herbal remedies where you have to make a concoction or mix with tea she put these potent herbs & nutrients into a capsule form.

It doesn’t knock you out like other sleep remedies. Dr. Xu knows that most people can’t sleep because they can’t stop thinking, so she created Restful Sleep to work like an “off switch” to a hyperactive mind. If you’ve have not been sleeping well for years, it may take a short while to achieve great sleep so you use it consistently for best results.

Restful Sleep natural sleep supplement provides the exact herbs your body needs to bring the spleen, heart, and entire body into harmony so you can switch off your mind and turn on a great night’s sleep—without waking up drowsy!

Each bottle contains 60 capsules ( a 30 day supply)
You can find them on amazon Dr. Xu’s Restful Sleep Natural Sleep Aid Supplement

My experience:
When I got these I was excited because of them being made with herbs & essential minerals. I often have trouble getting to sleep because I’m thinking about a million things. I get up write things down, forgot I did something, look up things on my cell or laptop and then I’m up in the middle of the night. When I read that this helps calms your mind & act as an ‘off switch’ , I knew it would be perfect. Well guess what I’ve been having no trouble sleeping since I got these to review. What I can tell you though, is the days I did take them I really felt at ease. I felt more calm & relaxed which would helped me get comfortable and not think about whatever was going through my mind of what I need to do , should have done, yada yada.
They were easy to swallow and had no weird smell or aftertaste.
I woke up feeling good , not groggy at all.
I’m also wondering if these would be good to take when you feel a bit overwhelmed and stressed to help calm your mind down.
If you have trouble sleeping and not a fan of taking medicine ( like me) , this natural sleep aid is worth a try.

Do you have trouble getting to bed or have an overactive mind once your head hits the pillow?

Arm & Hammer Truly Radiant Routine #TrulyRadiant #FreeSamp

Last year Smiley360 sent me Truly Radiant products to try & review. I enjoyed them. This time they sent me some new products from the line to try.

Truly Radiant

Truly Radiant Rejuvenating Toothpaste , whitening with a refreshing twist
truly radiant toothpaste
Clinically proven to whiten in just 5 days.
Cleans, strengthens and repairs tooth enamel.
Fresh mint flavor
Tartar Control
Fluoride Anticavity protection
For a $.50 coupon click here

My thoughts: I use whitening toothpastes so I couldn’t really tell a difference but I didn’t lose my bright smile. Months ago I switched toothpastes and I felt like it made my teeth a shade darker or not as bright as before. This toothpaste didn’t do that at all and kept my teeth bright. The taste was pleasant sort of reminded me of ice breakers mints. I would use this toothpaste again.

Truly Radiant whitening & strengthening fluoride rinse
truly radiant mouthwash

Helps stop stains before they start
Peroxide- free
Strengthens & restores enamel
Sparkling Mint flavor
Alcohol free
Click here for a $1 coupon

My thoughts:
Good taste, not strong. It leaves a nice peppermint taste in your mouth, sort of like a candy cane. I also like it doesn’t leave a stale minty taste in your mouth like other mouth washes do. It is great that it is peroxide free but still helps whiten your teeth. I also like that is prevents stains with its stain defense technology. I would definitely use this again.

Truly Radiant Extra White Manual Spinbrush

Spinbrush

Manual toothbrush with spinbrush technology, no batteries needed
Bristles rotate as you brush to help remove stains
Has elongated bristles designed to clean hard-to-reach places
Whitening bristles & whitening cup designed to enhance stain removal
For a $1 coupon click here

My thoughts: I enjoyed the way this toothbrush felt holding , brushing, and after using it. Though the top of the brush was a tad big. The Spinbrush has good rubber grips on the handle and fits perfectly in my hand. The bristles are gentle on my gums and left my teeth feeling & looking clean. As far as the spinning I didn’t feel or see the top of it spinning. It did leave me teeth feeling very clean though.

If you are around Tuesday June 9th at 2pm EST / 1pm CT/ 11am PST and want a chance at winning a basket of Truly Radiant products go RVSP here

Maxasorb Melatonin Sleep Cream Review

If you know me I’m a night owl. I always have been , basically since birth.
Sometimes it doesn’t matter and I’m completely fine but if I have to get up early , that can be another story. I’m not a fan of taking sleep medicine & have heard people getting ‘addicted’ & waking up groggy. Then I remembered hearing about melatonin, I actually took some gummies in the past that a friend let me try. It worked great!
So I was making a list of stuff I needed and I got an email asking if I wanted to review Vita Sciences Melatonin Cream. It was perfect timing.

  
So what is melatonin? It is a hormone that helps regulate your sleep & wake cycles.
When the sun goes down & it gets darker the pineal gland ( which is where this hormone is made) is turned on & produces melatonin which is released into the blood. Melatonin in the blood rises and we become sleepy. As we age our bodies do not make a sufficient amount of melatonin.

Who will benefit using this melatonin cream :
If you are suffering from insomnia
Jetlag
Helping control sleep patterns if you work night shifts

How to use:
When you are getting ready to go to bed, you use one full press of the pump and rub it on your arms or legs. It is that easy! No worrying about swallowing pills.

For jet lag:Travelers trying to ease the effects of jet lag, apply Maxasorb™ Melatonin lotion the day of travel close to the target bedtime at your destination. This will aid in falling asleep faster, improves alertness during the day, and reduces daytime fatigue. Use the product throughout the trip and for a week after return to help your body readjust its natural sleep cycle

About Maxasorb™ Melatonin cream:
Made with natural ingredients, enriched with melatonin, Aloe Vera and Vitamin E
You will get 3mg of melatonin per dose
You get 60 doses per tube
Gentle on skin & doesn’t dry out skin
Odorless
Decrease the time needed to fall asleep; Increase sleepiness; Increase sleep duration

* My thoughts *
I love this cream, it helped me go to bed at a decent hour and go to sleep fairly quick. I would put it on 10- 30 minutes before I was ready to sleep. My eyelids would get heavier and heavier, I would put my head on the pillow & I was out. No waking up in the middle of the night and didn’t wake up groggy. I like that there isn’t a scent. This cream has coconut oil in it so it leaves your skin feeling soft. If you have trouble getting to sleep, I definitely recommend trying this cream out. I keep mine by my bed.

Other tips for a good night sleep:
Turn your phone off, on vibrate, do not disturb, and flip it face down.I have woken up from notifications on my phone ( whether it being a noise or it lighting up). I use my cell phone as an alarm clock so its always at arms reach. Also like many before bed, when I can’t sleep I am check social media , playing games, reading, ect.

Try to limit your cell phone, laptop, tablet, tv time before bedtime because it confuses your internal clock & delays the release of melatonin. You should unplug 30-60 minutes before bedtime.

Try to make your room dark. I don’t like having a tv in my room and I also try not to have anything with a light on it, including a charging laptap.

Exercise! It really does help you at the end of the day winding down.

Stretch before bed
