I am a Purex Insider and was provided a FREE product sample of Purex Crystals Limited Edition Fabulously Fresh to facilitate this post. Opinions expressed are that of my own.

Purex Crystals Limited Edition Fabulously Fresh

Thanks to Purex, I got an opportunity to use their newest scent in the Crystals products line called Fabulously Fresh.

Just like the existing fragrances in this line, Purex Crystals Fabulously Fresh is meant keep clothes smelling fresh for weeks versus days and can be used in the place of Fabric Softener. It does not reduce the absorbency of towels, and can be used in both high-efficiency and traditional top-loading washers.

To use, simply add directly into the machine with the detergent at the start of the wash.

Just like the other Purex Crystals I have tried, this has a nice fresh scent. It made my laundry room smell, well FABULOUS! Not to mention, the clothes smell great as well.

Nuby Wash or Toss Cups

Thanks to Nuby, I was sent Wash or Toss Cups to review with my family here on Frugal and Fun Mom.

Nuby’s Wash or Toss Cups are intended for ages 9 Months and up and come in a six-pack.  The lids are interchangeable, and the cups are BPA FREE and dishwasher top rack safe.

They can be used over and over again, or can be disposed of since they are so inexpensive. I decided to wash mine and they are holding up fine, I expect to continue to use these over and over again.

Nuby Wash or Toss Cups

The tops on these cups are secure, making it tough for my toddler to pry open. Plus they are perfect for on the go, and carry a good amount of liquid (10 oz size). 

I am super excited to own these cups since they are big enough for all of my kids to use, with or without the lids. In addition, they are stackable which makes them a space saver.

I received these free products as part of an Influenster Optic White VoxBox. Opinions expressed in this post are that of my own.

Review of Colgate Optic White

Thanks to Colgate and Influenster, I was given an Optic White Whitening Kit to review here on Frugal and Fun Mom.

Colgate Optic White is a whitening system that includes a Toothbrush with a Built-In Whitening Pen. This pen fits into the bottom of the toothbrush when it is not in use.

Review of Colgate Optic White

To use this product simply brush your teeth with the included specially designed toothbrush, and use your regular toothpaste.

When you are finished brushing, apply the whitening gel to your teeth with 2 clicks for the top and 2 clicks for the bottom.  No waiting or rinsing is required for the gel. Use as directed on the box.

Review of Colgate Optic White

I have been using this system for 2 weeks now, and it is really easy to apply.  I applied it twice a day for the first 2 days and once or twice there after. 

It doesn’t take much more time than usual brushing, which is great for this busy Mom of 3. Plus, I like how it has the built in storage making the pen easier to find, and I don’t have to find an extra place to keep it.

Before and After Whitening Colgate Optic White Review of Colgate Optic White

Pictured above is the before and after of me using Colgate Optic White for a week and a half . The results are subtle but yellowing has definitely been reduced. My teeth look natural, which is what I want. 

I already use a whitening toothpaste, however since I am a coffee drinker I get stains between my front teeth and on one of my side bottom teeth.  Those spots have lightened up since I started using this system.

Do you use a whitening product on your teeth?  Have you tried the Colgate Optic White, and if so what do you like about it?

To learn more about Colgate Optic White and how to use this product visit colgateopticwhite.com.  You can also check Colgate out on Facebook at facebook.com/Colgate and Twitter at twitter.com/OpticWhite.

“I am a Purex Insider and the Dial brand provided me coupons for free Dial Deep Cleansing Hand Soap so I could facilitate this post. However, all of the opinions expressed here are my own.”

Dial Deep Cleansing Hand Soap

Thanks to Dial, I was sent samples of NEW Dial Deep Cleansing Hand Soap to review here on Frugal and Fun Mom!

Dial Deep Cleansing Hand Soap is a great smelling cleanser that contains micro-scrubbers that moisturize the skin. This product comes in a newly designed sleek bottle that is also available in 3 vibrant colors.

These colors correspond with fragrances including Yellow Raspberry & Black SugarWater Blossoms, or Coconut Lime Verbena.

Dial Deep Cleansing Hand Soap

I actually needed to update my hand wash bottles in the bathroom and kitchen, so getting this package was perfect timing. The tough decision however, was figuring out where to place these based on their color.

Both scents smell really good but since I like the smell of citrus after working with foods, I placed the Coconut Lime Verbena in the kitchen.  By default the Water Blossoms was placed in the bathroom. This worked out though since it brought out the blue accents in the counter top.

Dial Deep Cleansing Hand Soap

I must admit that the Water Blossoms is my favorite but after testing these out, I am definitely looking forward to trying the Yellow Raspberry & Black Sugar.

Have you tried Dial Deep Cleansing Hand Soap yet?  What fragrance do you want to try first, Yellow Raspberry & Black SugarWater Blossoms, or Coconut Lime Verbena?

Nuby GATOR GRIP Pop-up Sipper Review

Thanks to Nuby, I was sent a Gator Grip Pop-up Sipper to review with my family here on Frugal and Fun Mom.

The Gator Grip is a leak resistant cup that is intended for children 24 months and up. It has a pop-up sipper and is ergonomically shaped with an easy grip texture. The cup is available in multiple color combinations and also includes a tag that is perfect for labeling.

Nuby GATOR GRIP Pop-up Sipper Review

All of my kids are active and we are constantly on the go.  I not only need a closed top drink for my toddler, but it also comes in handy for my 5 and 7 year old.

The Nuby Gator Grip has come in handy for my 5 year old as we head up to school for my oldest child’s school pick-up, and for when she goes to her Ballet Practice.

Nuby GATOR GRIP Pop-up Sipper Review

Our cup has a neat design, and I also like that it comes with a labeling tag.  This way it will be harder for us to lose this when we go to play-dates and other activities.

Nuby Toddler Training Toothpaste & Toothbrush

Proper oral care has always been a concern for me when it comes to my kids. From an early age, I have paid attention to their gums and teeth, and have made sure to teach them good habits.

My toddler is no exception to this, and I have been working with him to learn to brush his teeth. Of course I am still the main brusher, but I also let him grasp the toothbrush, chew on it, and make it a fun experience for him by singing songs.

Nuby Toothbrush

Nuby’s Toddler Training Toothpaste and Toothbrush has been an awesome addition to our daily oral care routine.

The toothpaste is formulated with Citroganix to help prevent tooth decay and comes in a Tutti Frutti flavor. It is an All Natural product, fluoride free, and safe if swallowed.

Using and check out his Nuby Toothbrush

The toothbrush is small and flexible, which is a perfect for my little guy’s hands and mouth. He has been using both products in the morning and evening, and my son has really taken to it.  I don’t blame him though, I tasted the toothpaste and it is pretty good. I also think it is holding up pretty well considering how much my guy wants to chew on it.
