I absolutely LOVE the Orange you Smart shampoo and conditioner. It leaves my daughters hair smelling nice and fresh, like a fresh squeezed orange. Plus it conditions her hair and makes it silky soft. The other great perk is that it doesn't bother her eyes if it comes in contact with them. I cant wait to go to chucks whole foods store this weekend and pick up a bottle!! Way to go, Kiss My Face!!


Marney writes: I used the Brightening Day Cream and the Intensive Repair Night Creme and i could see a difference in just one use. The Day Cream makes your face have a natural glow to it and the Night Creme really moisturizes my skin, repairing it from the day to day stress my skin takes. I would recommend this product to any one with "mature skin" that wants the young skin feel and look.
Anna writes: This is one product i cant live without. The Cell mate 15 (face creme and sunscreen) are a perfect combination. For a product that contains sunscreen, its not greasy at all. It not only protects my skin from the harmful effects from the sun but it keeps my skin feeling nice and fresh. Love this stuff!
Stephanie writes: The Eye Witness (eye repair creme) is now a must have in my make-up bag. Ive used many eye puffiness products in my 42 years of life and some of them work ok but most have lots of chemicals in them that burn my face. Thanks to Kiss my Face i now have one that isn't irritating to my eyes and actually works. Within 3 days i could see it working. Thanks!

Polar Bottle.... Nothing Performs Like The Original







Who knows more about insulation then a polar bear?? The makers of Polar Bottles, that's for sure. Combining the thermal properties of an insulated vacuum bottle with the lightweight, flexible features of a plastic bottle, the Polar Bottle is the ideal choice for active people. Simply fill with liquid and ice and hit the trail. For even longer cooling power, fill your Polar Bottle and store it in the freezer before use. Either way, it will keep liquids cold twice as long as conventional water bottles.
Polar Bottle® is the original insulated plastic sport bottle. It keeps liquids colder longer than other water bottles. We innovated the industry back in 1994 by creating a bottle that would actually keep water cool during any outdoor activity. The bottle has evolved in the years since with brightly colored foil liners and patterns and an innovative removable valve system. Made in America, Polar Bottle is popular throughout the world.


Bottles come in two sizes, 20oz $10.99 and 24oz $11.99


***REVIEW**


Everyday when Hannah and I wake up, we eat breakfast and then i make us a smoothie to take with us on our morning walk. I usually would have to waste paper towels to wrap around my sports bottle because the bottle would sweat and leak all over the place.... Not anymore, these bottles are perfect for keeping drinks cold and the best thing of all is they don't sweat. No matter how cold your beverage is, the bottle won't sweat and leave those awful rings everywhere you put the bottle down like the other sports bottles. They even have a carrying loop that is perfect to put on the handle of my stroller. These bottles also have a removable valve that comes out easy for cleaning and all of these plastic bottles are BPA and Phthalate-Free so you don't have to worry if its safe for you and your family to drink from.

***REVIEW***



I first want to say that these are the BEST smelling products i have ever used. I was actually finding things to clean, just so i could use these cleaners. They even have a surface spray that is perfect for wiping down toys and pretty much everything else. I also have to say that as soon as i started using Mrs. Meyers Clean Day everyone was asking what smelled so good in my home. I had my best friend over and she loved them so much she ordered some the very next day. Even my SO kept asking what smelled so good in our daughters nursery. If you want to actually enjoy cleaning time, ORDER these cleaning products and i promise you wont be disappointed. I cant wait to order more of it!!! Another perk to these products is that they are affordable for everyday moms. Great Great products... Love it!! This product by far gets the Mommy Seal of Approval!

**Reviews**



This is truly a GREAT product! I know a lot of different creams and ointments claim to work within just one or two diaper changes but this stuff really works. Grandma El's® is also great to use to prevent diaper rash! We use this product at night when i know Hannah is going to be in her diaper the longest. I also recommend every mom to keep a tube of this in the diaper bag too!




Lisa from Michigan writes:

Great product! my son gets frequent rashes due to some medical conditions and i have been through a LOT of diaper creams, ointments and even tried corn starch, nothing works for him! Before the 2nd day of using Grandma El's® the rash & chaffing he had was near gone! it's also great that the product is cloth diaper safe since that is what i use :-) I ordered some & can't wait to get it!

Reviews

These products are great! I think the story that is behind them is also very moving. A lot of the normal hand sanitizers are very harsh and have alcohol in them. For a long time i always thought that to kill the germs it had to have alcohol in them, well not anymore. These products are great for any mom on the go and at home. I keep one bottle of CleanWell in the pocket of my shopping cart cover and some of the CleanWell wipes in the diaper bag. Its nice to know that it's naturally Antibacterial which means it doesn't have to pack a bunch of unnecessary chemicals in them that can soak into the skin of my daughter or myself for that matter. I think these products definitely get the mommy seal of approval! If your a mommy that is on the go and want something to give you piece of mind with all the flu and cold stuff going around, go grab some CleanWell and know that your kids are protected, naturally!

BabyGanics Works Hard - Plays safe Natural, Non-Toxic Household Cleaning


Armed with bottles of vinegar, boxes of baking soda and cups of lemon juice, Keith Garber and Kevin Schwartz sought to wage war against the encroaching legions of dust mites, bacteria, mold, mildew and germs that relentlessly invaded their homes. Having fruitlessly searched through the cleaning products aisles of every grocery, department and specialty baby store for safe and effective solutions, the clean-freak fathers were left to defend their families against these invaders with nothing more then natural, homemade recipes. And despite their best elbow-greased efforts, the pair continuously came up unsatisfied with the end results.
While their countertops and floors appeared clean, Schwartz and Garber oftentimes found themselves opting back to the seemingly more effective yet harsher conventional cleaners. However, once Kevin's dog developed hot spots after being exposed to an ammonia-based cleaner, the Schwrtz's used on their coffee table, Schwartz and Garber decided it was time to develop a product line of natural household cleaners that could help them win the war on germs without suffering any more casualties.
Determined to protect the health of their two- and four-legged family members, the fathers began working with chemists to develop formulations, which used only vegetable-based cleaning agents derived from soy, coconut, palm kernel and sugar. By 2007, the dads had enlisted a full infantry of all-natural, non-toxic and environmentally-responsible products, known as BabyGanics™. Based on their own battle cry of "Works Hard, Plays Safe"™, the line is always on call; ready to clean like crazy, specifically in the areas where families eat, play, bathe, breathe and sleep.
As part of their mission to win a little peace of mind for the like-minded parents, the warrior fathers even drank some of their new formulations. And while they certainly don't recommend repeating the taste test at home, if pets or kiddos happen to ingest any of the BabyGanics product line, there won't be any need to panic or call poison control because all of BabyGanics products are 100% Natural*.The plant-based ingredients are safe around babies: earth safe, people safe and picky mother-in-law safe.
*(This doesn't apply to the alcohol free foaming hand sanitizer products)
So why should you use BabyGanics?
Natural and Organic – Although similar in concept, natural and organic have different meanings. Natural means that BabyGanics is made solely from earthly ingredients. Nothing man-made was added in any part of production. Organic refers to the product as a whole, indicating that BabyGanics helps sustain people and the planet in a holistic way. Free of harsh chemicals/Non-toxic – BabyGanics is 100% chemical free. There are no synthetically derived components. Non-toxic indicates that BabyGanics will not cause adverse health effects, either immediately or in the long-term.
No pollutants – Not only is BabyGanics safe for the home, it is safe for the environment. Because of its pure composition, BabyGanics will not contribute to indoor air pollution and is not a threat to the environment when properly disposed.
No caustic ingredients – Caustic ingredients can cause corrosion or deterioration of a material. Surprisingly and unfortunately these types of ingredients can be found in many cleaning products. BabyGanics is pure, and free of any type of caustic element.
VOC free – VOCs, or volatile organic compounds, are chemicals that can be emitted as gas from either a solid or a liquid. Cleaning products that contain VOCs can release this source of air pollution which, in turn, can have negative effects on health. BabyGanics prides itself on being completely free of all volatile organic compounds.
No fillers or dyes – BabyGanics’ all natural ingredients leave no room for fillers or dyes. Its wholesome composition is beyond sufficient and has no need for dyes or fillers.
Superior performance – Removing the chemicals and toxins of conventional household cleaners does not remove the ability of BabyGanics to perform its duties. As a cleaning product BabyGanics has surpassed the performance of average cleaners. When put to the test, BabyGanics capacity to clean is top quality.
Safe for people, pets and the environment – Above all safety is the underlying motivation of BabyGanics. By cleaning your home you should not have to put your loved ones at risk, nor risk polluting the environment. Take the opportunity to switch your current household cleaners to a product that is not only effective but extremely safe as well.

Review
When started using these products I can honestly say that i was a little skeptical at first. As a mom its hard for me to to think that something that is so natural could clean as well as the other products on the market. I used to think that to get something clean it would have to smell really bad or be really harsh. Not anymore!! These cleaners have no smell at all and they really do work. Just yesterday i decided to tackle the inside and outside of the fridge and its sparkling clean now. Even the top of the fridge (where it gets a film from all the cooking) wiped right off with no scrubbing! The Grime Fighter™ All-purpose cleaner also comes in a convenient wipe which is great for cleaning up a messy high chair after dinner (and pretty much everything else in between). I also love the Dish Dazzler™ , its so easy to just use one little pump of the foam on the bottle brush and it lasts the whole load of sippy cups. I noticed that i use less compared to the regular dish soap i used to use before so it saves money too. And last but not least is the Breathin' Easy™ air freshener and odor eliminator. I keep my trash in the laundry room due to my little one always trying to do a snatch and grab with the garbage so it doesn't smell the freshest in there but now it does. Its like an army of good smelling lavender that invades the odor and destroys it. So if your ever wondering what cleaners you can use without the worry of it poisoning your family look no farther because this is it! Its so nice knowing that its non-toxic that i even let Hannah help me clean now.

Canus L'il Goat's Milk Products

Canus developed a special line of products for babies and young children. Their delicate skin hasn’t been exposed to harsh environments very much and therefore is still ultra-sensitive. Plus they have their own list of li’l skin problems like acne and eczema. That’s why each Li’l Goat’s Milk product is specially formulated to be effective yet extra gentle.

This special line includes :


Tearless Shampoo and body wash (16oz pump bottle )

It’s specially ph-balanced for younger skin, lathers into a rich, bubbly foam and, of course, contains vitamin and nutrient rich goat’s milk.


Moisturizing Lotion ( 16oz pump bottle )

Young skin is particularly sensitive to the drying and irritating effects of the environment, household heating and air conditioning systems, even bathwater.So the goats boosted the moisturizing powers of their own milk with aloe, vitamin A and E extracts and glycerin (a naturally occurring emollient found in all animal and vegetable lipids.) Li’l Goat’s Milk lotion doesn’t just moisturize the surface of the Li’l epidermis but penetrates it so all those extra skin-soothing ingredients can get to work. Dermatologists recommend goat’s milk for eczema and pediatric acne, too.


Bar Soap ( 3.5oz bar )

Many bar soaps strip sensitive young skin of its natural protective oils. They may also contain strong, irritating fragrances. The goats find this appalling. So they set to work and developed a pure, vegetable-base bar soap just for little ones. Naturally it features rich, moisturizing goat’s milk along with glycerin and essential oils. No matter how many times a day you have to wash a sticky face, scrub behind a pair of ears or bathe away an extra layer of dirt (or two), Li’l Goat’s Milk soap will treat your child’s skin with extra gentle care.


Baby Butter ( 8oz Jar )

Thick and super-rich, Li’l Goat’s Milk Baby Butter contains fresh goat’s milk, allantoin, aloe vera, soybean oil and vitamin E extract. Quickly absorbed by young skin and especially effective on eczema, psoriasis and dry patches, it is ideal for children with extra dry and sensitive skin.


Zinc Oxide Ointment ( 10oz Jar )

Zinc oxide is an effective diaper rash treatment. It forms a protective barrier that prevents further irritation and allows young skin’s natural healing process to take over. The goats have added their own, fresh milk to a 40% zinc oxide cream, creating a diaper rash ointment that helps neutralize the burning caused by contact with urine and brings an extra level of moisturizing relief to baby’s bum.


Ultra Moisturizing Wipes ( 80 wipes per container )

Strong yet oh so soft, Li’l Goat’s Milk Baby Wipes are gentle enough to use on little faces yet thick enough to withstand a good scrub. The fragrance is light and natural – none of that artificial baby powder smell. Alcohol-free, each wipe is infused with soothing Li’l Goat’s Milk lotion. While other wipes strip away baby’s natural skin oils, these moisturize as they gently clean away dirt and grime. Wipes easily pull out with one hand.




Reviews


Well i started using these products about a week ago and was surprised that something with such a great smell could also be soothing to sensitive skin. It has a great fresh and clean smell that lasts all day long. Also a plus to the Shampoo/Body Wash is that you only have to use a tiny amount and it lathers up great. The lotion is great too! It helps with all the little dry spots and is a great moisturizer. This product definitely gets the Mommy Seal of Approval



Jenny from Florida writes:

My son has very bad eczema and this stuff works great for him! I wish i would have known about these products when he was a lot younger. You now have a new customer for life! Keep up the great work.



Shannon from Florida writes:

I love the baby wipes, they are sensitive enough to use on my daughters delicate skin. They also smell great unlike traditional sensitive wipes.

Review


I just want to say WOW!! I was really amazed with how great these products are. I also like the fact that these are products that everyone in my household can use. There is no need for a million different bottles of shampoo and special body wash for my daughter because these are great for everyone. Hannah has very sensitive skin so i am always looking for things that are more natural to use on her and what i found is something that is safe for her and great for the whole family (including my SO). I used the shampoo on Hannah and was amazed that it didn't bother her eyes at all and it smells great. I also have to tell everyone how refreshing the body wash smells. They made a perfect match by using the orange, lemon, and lime for this body wash. It also rinses off great and doesn't leave any film on your body like other washes i have used before. The best thing of all is that these products are all natural and organic so not only are they good for us they are good for the environment as well.

I got my sunscreen sample yesterday in the mail & we got the chance to try it yesterday. So far we love it. It went on real easy & is not smelly or greasy feeling either. We were out in the pool for a couple hrs in the sun & no sunburn or any type of reaction to my little guys skin! Wonderful product. Thanks Alesha. :-)

I tried my sample out too, I like that it was thick and not super thin and runny like others. I really like the clip that came with it, makes it easy to clip on outside of bag or your shorts. Easy to get to for reapplying it.Thanks

Welcome to The Mommy Spot

Home to Mommy Tested and Approved and a few new things. This is a place for moms. I will still be testing out Baby/Children/Mommy products so i will still need people to help me with the reviews so be sure to become one of my followers so you will have the chance of being picked to do a review. I will also be hosting giveaways from time to time with some of the products i do reviews on. So please, if you know another mom, tell her to come on over and become a follower. The more followers i get, the more products we can review and have giveaways for.

I also am putting different areas of interest on here as well. For example a Green area for any moms that are interested in living a more green life with their family. Another one for meal ideas for the LO's. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. This is still under construction so bear with me until its finished. I would also like to thank everyone who has helped me to get this going!!

I would like to know how many of you have pets too! Would anyone be interested in having a section on pets? I could contact some pet friendly companies to do some reviews if i can get enough people that would like to do this. Let me know and please let your friends know about this page so we can get some more support!
