Burt’s Bees Natural Product Review – #Sponsored

This is a sponsored review on behalf of Burt’s Bees/Walmart/DataRank, although all thoughts and opinions are those of our own.

BurtsBeesReview

I was recently contacted by Burt’s Bees to review their Natural Products that are available at Walmart. Whatever I wanted to review was up to me! Natural products are very important to me, and I actually haven’t always been that way until recently! I have two girls, and I think it’s really important to watch what is in the products we use as well as products we eat. Anyway, so I headed to Walmart to check out their lovely Burt’s Bees section, and much to my surprise, they had a TON of products in the health and beauty section! I knew Walmart sold Burt’s Bees products as I have seen their lip balms before up at the checkout lanes, but I had no idea they had this much product. It was so hard to choose what I wanted to review!

burtsbees1

Walmart had anything and everything you could think of from Burt’s Bees Natural Products. Lotions, Facial Scrubs, Facial Cleaners, Foot Creams, Hand products, Lip products, and more! After spending about 20 minutes in this section I finally decided on three different products that I had never used from Burt’s Bees before, and was really interested in trying out!

BurtsBees4

I chose Burt’s Bees Cucumber & Sage Facial Cleaning Towelettes, Burt’s Bees Hydrating Lip Balm with Coconut & Pear, and Burt’s Bees Peach & Willow Bark Deep Pore Scrub. I was really impressed with the prices of these products too. It always seems any of the Natural products are really pricey, but these were all very reasonable in price, which is a plus for a mom on a budget.

The first product I decided to try once I got home was the Cucumber & Sage Facial Cleaning Towelettes. This package contains 30 pre-moistened towelettes and are a pretty generous size. They are 99.1% natural and are for normal to dry skin. These are great for removing dirt, oil, and make-up without having to rinse your face. They are dermatologist and ophthalmologist tested, as well as FSC certified cloth. I’m always on the lookout for products I can travel with, especially because I have so many upcoming dates that I will be traveling. It’s not always easy to be able to wash your face when you’re on the go, so these are great for a nice pick me up for my skin. They have a wonderful cucumber/sage smell that isn’t too overpowering and they did a fabulous job of removing all of my make-up, including my mascara without much effort. They left my skin feeling fabulous, cool, and clean. These are definitely going on my list of must haves!

The second product I used after the Cucumber & Sage Facial Cleaning Towelettes was the Burt’s Bees Peach & Willow Bark Deep Pore Scrub. I’m a sucker for anything that can deep clean my face and pores, and it’s always hard to find a great product without shelling out a ton of money. I’d have to say this Burt’s Bees Peach & Willow Bark Deep Pore Scrub fit the bill for sure! As you can see it has some finely ground peach stone to help clear our those pores and dead skin off of your face. I love that this product is 100% natural too! It is also infused with Willow Bark, which is a natural source of salicylic acid. The Peach & Willow Bark Deep Pore Scrub has a light scent, but smells like peaches. It does a great job of removing dirt and excess oils for a deep pore cleaning. After using this product, my face felt really clean and soft. I’d recommend following up with a Burt’s Bees moisturizer to restore moisture to your face.

On the directions it does say to wet your face first before applying this product, but I think it’s creamy enough and not too thick, that it’s really great to use without water. Unless you have some sensitive skin then you may need this to be a bit thinner. I definitely recommend using it without wetting your face first. This is a product that I will definitely be buying again and again too, right along side the facial towelettes. They both worked wonderful together.

The third product I tried was Burt’s Bees Hydrating Lip Balm in Coconut & Pear. I am a daily user of lip balm, and I’ve had Burt’s Bees lip balm in the past, but I haven’t had any recently, so I was excited to try it out again. My lips always seem to be dry, and with the upcoming Winter months I figured a hydrating lip balm would be the best choice. Coconut Oil is so popular nowadays and is used in a ton of natural products, so I knew this would be a good choice, especially since I’m a huge fan of coconut oil. This lip balm from Burt’s Bees is of course 100% natural. Upon application of Burt’s Bees Hydrating Lip Blam my lips felt soft and health feeling, without being too heavy. I love a light lip balm and this definitely met all of my expectations. It’s definitely a product I’d recommend for the upcoming Winter months!

Burt’s Bees has been in business since 1984. It all started when Burt Shavitz picked up a hitchhiker on the side of the road named Roxanne Quimby and she began making beautiful natural candles with Burt’s leftover beeswax. They started selling the candles and in the first year they made $20,000. With Burt’s Bees celebrating their 30th Anniversary, now is a great time to support Burt’s Bees Natural Products at Walmart! I encourage you to check out the large selection of products and try something out today!

Elph Band Review & $125 Target Gift Card Giveaway – Two Winners – ends 10/31

This is a sponsored giveaway event. All opinions are those of our own and were not influenced in any way.

ElphBandGiveaway

Welcome to the ELPH Band Review and Giveaway Event!
Mom Powered Media, ELPH Band, and fantastic group of amazing bloggers have come together to bring you this event, just in time for Halloween.

Hosted by: Mom Powered Media
Sponsored by: ELPH Band

I’m sure you’re asking what the heck is an ELPH Band???

The ELPH Band is a link to your identifying information, such as your address, parent or guardian cell phone numbers and any other information you think is necessary, including medical conditions or drug allergies your child may have. Whether you’re traveling to a theme park, zoo, park, a crowded festival or even the mall, the ELPH Band can help find your child in the event he/she gets separated from you. It only takes one second for a child to disappear out of your site. I know I’ve panicked quite a few times when one of my children have disappeared from my sight for a few seconds.

We recently received the ELPH Band here at Everything Mommyhood for our oldest daughter who is 6. We have two girls, but my youngest is usually in a stroller or baby carrier, so I thought it would be best for my oldest when we visit a crowded area. She tends to stay right beside us at all times, but you can never be too safe.

We chose the child size ELPH Band in Pink. ELPH Bands are available in 3 sizes: Toddler (up to 5.75 inches), Child (up to 6.5 inches), and Adult (up to 7.5 inches). They are also available in two colors, Navy or Pink.

Please note in all of my images I have blurred out my daughter’s number on her ELPH Band for safety reasons.

Elph1

The ELPH band is a non-toxic, durable, silicone wristband. It provides an immediate, highly visible form of identification with clear instructions directly on the band. It’s easy to use with options to dial in or scan the QR code. ELPH Band does not put personal information, such as the child’s name or phone number where people can see it when it isn’t needed. It’s comfortable for your child to wear, and they LOVE the bright colors.

I taught my 6 year old that when she’s lost, she needs to use the word HELP and that ELPH has the word in it. She is rather shy, so I’m not sure she’d get our mine or my husband’s information out right away for someone to help her find us, that’s why the ELPH Band is so great, she can just tell someone about her bracelet.

ElphBand_Call

What does ELPH stand for? Easy Lookup to Phone Home

If your child get’s separated from you, all your child needs to do is show an adult his/her ELPH band. That adult can then call the 800# or scan the QR code to get in touch with you to reunite your child with you! It’s that simple!

elph3

Once the QR code is scanned on a smartphone, a screen similar to the one below will pop up for them to get in touch with you.
Your actual information won’t be there, but names will be as well as any allergy information. It will also state your child’s name so the person who has your child can communicate with them better until you are found.

ElphBand_Phone

To set up your ELPH band you will register it on a computer, or by scanning the QR code yourself and setting it up via your smartphone. Just a few simple questions and you will be registered. Once completed, you will get a text and email alert letting you know the account profile is active, and to verify the information has been entered correctly.

ElphCloseUp

We recently used our ELPH Band when we went to the Mississippi State Fair!

elph

You can see it fits my daughter perfect and it looks cute too!

Another great feature that I love about the ELPH band is, as soon as the QR code is scanned it will automatically message you with a GPS location of where your child is, now if that isn’t technology, I don’t know what is!!!

We actually have a few vacations coming up in the next couple months, and I’m so glad my daughter will have her ELPH band. I will be traveling with just my girls, so I will need to keep an eye on both of them, and well, sometimes it’s not that easy.

WE LOVE OUR ELPH BAND! Please don’t think that losing your child won’t happen to you, it can happen to anyone, ANYWHERE. With the ELPH Band you can be prepared.

Not only are ELPH Bands great for toddlers and children, but they are great for adults with special needs too!!! If you know someone who is in the need of a device such as the ELPH Band, make sure you recommend it to them!

Buy it: ELPH Bands are $19.99 each and they come with 1 year of service. You can purchase here. After 1 year of service, you can renew your service with ELPH Band.
