Alpine Lakes Gear Loop Bands

Alpine Lakes Gear Loop Bands Review

alpine

Having a medical condition has not been easy. Especially lately when moving takes a lot out of me. My joint hurt all of the time and some days it makes moving around extremely difficult. Mommy and Baby Reviews recently had the opportunity to work with Alpine Lakes Gear and review three of their amazing products. We were sent Loop Bands to review free of charge. We were sent a three pack of bands. The bands look like very large rubber bands. Each band is a different strength and color.

Green is a light resistance.

Red is a medium resistance.

Blue is a heavy resistance.

The green band is the lightest resistance band and what I started out using. Using resistance bands helps strengthen my muscles and help with my joint pain. I use the resistance bands when I do yoga as well as a little extra push. I know that no matter how much pain I am in that giving up is not an option. I need to keep my muscles strong and moving.

The Alpine Lakes Gear Loop Bands is perfect for anyone who is always on the go or needs an easy way to exercise. The resistance bands are easy to put in your purse, bookbag or brief case without taking up a lot of room. The band are great quality and made to last. I use my bands twice a day and the still feel as strong as the first day I used them.  The bands are also great for physical therapy. The bands are 10 inches in circumfrence by 2 inch wide.  While the bands are great for toning your hips and thighs, they are also great for your arms.

New Year #GetMotivated @BestBuyWOLF

New Year #GetMotivated @BestBuyWOLF 

A new year has started and along with it comes a lot of New Year’s Resolutions being made by just about everyone. This year I made my resolution one that I am going to make sure I stick to! Getting healthier. Not just losing weight but eating healthier and getting myself more active. Making an extra trip to the gym each week and setting weekly goals will keep me on track. However with this brutally cold weather and temperatures getting the motivation to leave my warm house to head to the gym is not on the top of my to do list. I personally find myself getting up and seeing the thermometer with single temperatures and wanting to crawl back under the covers.

new year 1

So I have been working out at home. With 2 kids who still love nap time and a husband who is working crazy hours at night, that doesn’t leave me much time to turn up the music and get my workout on. Studies have shown that music can increase the intensity and duration of a workout by as much as 15%.  Unfortunately, most people miss out on those benefits because their earphones hurt and fall out during active use.  I have tried working out with headphones and my iPod but that doesn’t work so well. The headphone cord gets wrapped up, unplugged or I drop the iPod completely. I end up getting frustrated, trying to workout without music and end up losing my motivation.

The Skin Regime

The Skin Regime

The Skin Regime was written by Dana Ramos. The book is now in it’s 2nd Edition and is a best seller. Mommy and Baby Reviews recently had the opportunity to work with Dana Ramos and review her book and a sample skin peel. Please remember that we were sent the book and peel to review free of charge. I wasn’t expecting to review the book or peel but with Kathleen being so sick and in the hospital, so when I found out about it I was excited.
the skin regime

We were sent The Skin Regime Boot Camp for Beautiful Skin and a sample of 1-4-Peel. I really enjoyed reading the book. While reading the book, it felt as if I was having a conversation with Dana in person. Almost like an old friend. I read the book while laying in bed at night and several times found myself laughing out loud getting looks from my husband thinking I was crazy. It is full of  helpful tips and hints for beautiful skin. I love the shopping list in the back.

1-4-all

The 1-4-All Peel smells horrible. It has a very strong chemical. The first thing I thought of after smelling it was those blow bubbles that we had when we were little. The smell honestly goes away after about a minute or two. I was shocked that the peel was not harsher on the skin. Smells can be deceiving. I only used one layer when using the 1-4-All Peel because I was a little worried with the smell of chemicals and I was afraid it would harm my sensitive skin. That wasn’t the case at all. There was hardly any redness at all.

Buttons Cloth Diapers

Buttons Cloth Diapers

Cloth diapers are a very wise investment. Not only does cloth diapering save you money but it helps keep disposable diapers out of lanfills. Did you know that that it is not known exactly how long it takes for a disposable diaper to decompose. However researchers believe that it can take 200 – 500 years and they still don’t believe they fully decompose. Yikes! Can you imagine? Read more »

Habe Naturals 1

I have tried other over the counter Acne treatments, with no help. I think some irritated my skin and made them worse than they actually helped. I don’t know how many times I had a super red face or over dried out. I love that the Acne Treatment is a two step process.  The pills were extremely easy to take and I didn’t notice a nasty taste in my mouth like when I take my meds, so that is a huge plus!

Dry Skin has been a nightmare this season with the temperatures being so cold and our house being so dry. My feet especially have been affected. Habé Naturals brings their consumers 100% natural products. I am a huge fan of all natural products, especially when it comes to beauty and health products. Mommy and Baby Reviews recently had the opportunity to work with Habé Naturals and review one of their amazing products.

Hand foot
My heels are horrible. I blame it on my obsession for sandals, flip flops, slippers and open heal shoes. They are so dry and cracked. I have tried everything. Soaking my feet, lotions, even special socks. Nothing seemed to work. I was stalking the mail box waiting for the Hand, Foot & Body Cream to arrive. I think this year is the worst year for my dry skin. We were sent a full 2 ounce container. I love how easy it is to apply. The cream does not leave my skin greasy or sticky. It does however, leaves my skin soft and hydrated. I apply the cream two times a day. After my shower and before bed. I unfortunately am still battling this cold and can’t smell. But once I can I will let you know how it smells!

[BRILLIANT] Love Heart Lip Care 3 Step System

January 20, 2014

[BRILLIANT] Love Heart Lip Care 3 Step System 
brillantThis Winter has been absolute horror on my lips. It has been so  dry in our house because of the needing the heat on to beat the New York brutal temperatures. Unfortunately, even having the humidifier on hasn’t helped any. Mommy and Baby Reviews recently had the opportunity to work with WISH Trend and review one of their amazing products. We were sent a [BRILLIANT] Love Heart Lip Care 3 Step System to review free of charge. This is a must have for anyone who needs or wants softer, kissable lips.
I was extremely excited when I found out I would have the chance to review the [BRILLIANT] Love Heart Lip Care 3 Step System. I have tried so many different chapsticks and home remedies that my friends have told me about and none worked as well as I would have liked. If they did work, the results only lasted a day or two. Nothing was long term.
The [BRILLIANT] Love Heart Lip Care 3 Step System is a easy process that takes just a few minutes a day out of your busy day to get beautiful, soft lips. The kit comes with four products.
brill1Step One is the Dead Cell Remover. The dead cell remover exfoliates your lips gently with very low irritation. I was a little worried that my lips would be worse or the remover would be too harsh but it wasn’t.  After washing your face, apply an adequate amount of the dead cell remover on your lips. Massage the remover into your lips for about 1-2 minutes. Now wipe off the remover with a wet tissue or wet wash clpth. The kit includes 10g of Step one for several applications.
Step Two is the Lip Gel Patch. Step two gives your lips the ulitmate moisturizing to keep your lips soft and hydrated. Start by taking the  gel patch out of the packaging. On the back of the patch there is a protective film that you need to remove. Once removed, put the gel patch over your lips for about 15-20 minutes. Once the time is up remove the patch and massage the rest of the essence into your lips with your fingers.  The kit includes 5 patches.

Step 3 is the Lip Tint and Essence. This is the last step to your new kissable lips. Start by applyan  adequate amount of the lip tint and essence onto your lips. In about 3-4 minutes your lips with be a beautiful pink color. The kit includes 10g of Step one for several applications. I loved that in less than 30 minutes my lips felt great again! Soft and Kissable!
