Product Review: O'Keeffe's Hand & Foot Cream

The O'Keeffe's company has been so generous and sent me two great products to review for you all! I want to give them a huge shout out and a big thank you! This is such a great company with great products that they offer. Before I get started with my review I would like to give you a brief history of these products and how they came to be that was passed down to me from the company which I found very interesting! Hope you do too. I also would like to give a little information about both products. 

O'Keeffe's Working Hands was created more than 25 years ago by Pharmacist Tara O'Keeffee. Looking to find a solution that would help her father, a rancher and diagnosed diabetic, who suffered from very dry, cracked skin. After testing more than 40 different formulas of creams in her kitchen, she found a perfect solution that helped her dad and other local farmers find relief when nothing else worked. This cream is now marketed as O'Keeffe's Working Hands, sold in mass merchants, drug stores, grocery and hardware stores across the U.S. and Canada. A few years later, O'Keeffe's for Healthy Feet was released, specially formulated to penetrate the tough, thick skin of feet. 

The key ingredients that can be found in both O'Keeffe's Working Hands and O'Keeffe's Healthy Feet are as follows:
Water, Glycerin and Paraffin. The Water  helps replace the water that the skin cells lose daily. The glycerin is to help draw the moisture into the skin and slow the excessive drying and evaporation. The level of glycerin in O'Keeffe's is higher than traditional lotions and creams. The Paraffin helps maintain the moisture in the skin.

Each of these products can be found in either a tube or a jar so you can get which you prefer. The tube is for ease of use and portability. Each product only costs $7.99 and can be found and purchased nation wide at:
Walmart, CVS, Walgreens, Bed, Bath & Beyond, Target, Home Depot, Lowe's and many additional retailers. 

O'Keeffe's for Healthy Feet is a wonderful product! I always have dry and cracked heels  because I hardly ever wear socks and I am always seeming to be bare foot.. even outside sometimes ha ha! So they are badly cracked and rough which can be super embarrassing. I have been using this product for about a week now and I am already in love! My feet are already noticeably smoother and they do not hurt as bad as they used to because of the cracks. I love to apply this right after I get out of the shower in the morning and then once again right before I go to bed. That way I have moisture working through the day and while I am asleep. I am a firm believer in this product and I recommend it. It is worth the money!

If you know me you know I have A LOT of lotions and hand creams because my hands are always so dry because I have that kind of skin and the weather really affects it also. This winter and spring my hands have been the worst ever! They have been so cracked and to the point that my knuckles and in between my fingers are bleeding all the time and they hurt badly! It has even sometimes brought me to tears. I have tried EVERYTHING and nothing has seemed to work. Once again I have been using this product about a week also and I have noticed a big difference with my hands. They are less dry and I am not bleeding as much!! Hallelujah! I again apply this right out of the shower and then again right before I go to bed. I love, love, LOVE this product and it is by far the best hand cream out there! This product gets a billion stars in my book and is a life saver. I will never go a day without O'keeffe's Working Hands. This product I highly, highly recommend!! You get a lot for your money also because you do not need to use very much. 

I am so thankful to O'Keeffe's and honored to be able to try these products. I have been turned into a true O'Keeffe's believer and fan! This is such a great company! With that being said...!!

Product Review: Purina Tidy Cats

Today's post is sponsored by Purina Tidy Cats. I just want to give a HUGE shout out to them for sponsoring this post and giving me the opportunity to give an honest review their product. Thank you Purina, your company rocks!! 
First off I want to start off with my family was already a HUGE Purina fan.. we by their dog food Purina One for miss Maggie and we buy their brand of treats for both our pup and are cats. In the past for cat litter I just bought what ever was the cheapest.. when in reality it wasn't ever the cheapest because we went though it so much. I am super afraid of having my house smell well, like cats and cat poop so I am cleaning the cat littler all the time! And the cheaper brands just didn't seem to hold up.. I feel like they were making the poop and our house smell worse than it was. I always wanted that clean smell and couldn't find it. 
Well, that was until I discovered Purina Tidy Cats with Glade Solutions! This stuff smells AMAZING!! It really helps hide the cat smell and the poop smell which is awesome and just what I was looking for. I have no idea why I had never bought this before! I am promising you, once you try this you will not want to go back to your other brand. This kitty litter also helps clean up go smoothly and quickly because I'm sure we all hate to have to clean up after our cats right?! And the best part is this litter doesn't get stuck in their little paws like the past brands have. So that means they aren't tracking the litter all over my house! Which if they were I don't think I would mind because like I said this stuff smells great. I highly recommend this product if you want easy clean up and a great smelling home that doesn't smell like cats. Since I started using this I've even had people tell me that they didn't even know that I had cats until they saw them. So there you have it.. this stuff is amazing! It can be found at Walmart, Target and pretty much anywhere that sells cat litter. It cost $7.99 for a 20 lbs container. The container is super easy to use which makes pouring into your cat litter box hassle free and mess free! They are also easy to store because of their sleek design. I have two cats and two litter boxes and with this 20 lbs I can get about three uses out of it and I change my litter weekly and clean it daily so I get about 3 weeks out of one 20 lbs litter. I think this is a great deal that not only smells great but works wonders. And the price isn't bad at all! I will be purchasing this product over and over. Thank you Purina Tidy Cats for showing me how wonderful my home can be by using Tidy Cats. We are now a Purina Tidy Cats Family! Will you join me in becoming one too?


Maggie's Treasure

Today I decided to tell a cute little story about our dog Maggie that happened on Wednesday. Everyday I let Maggie out on the chain because we don't have a fence yet and she tends to leave our yard and go exploring. Well this was no different day, I put her on the chain and let her be. She normally will bark happily at the birds that fly by or the horses that live next door and she will also bark really loudly at the back door when she is ready to come in. Well on this particular day I was in the front room working out when all the sudden Maggie started barking with a high pitch bark that I had never heard before. So I ran outback and looked over our back porch to see what was going on and to make sure that she was okay! When I looked over I saw Miss Maggie licking her chops and wagging her butt! (She is really wagging her tail but it's just a little nub so it makes her entire behind wag like crazy.. it's so cute!) And next to her was a hole that she had dug. Thankfully we don't have that good of a yard yet so I wasn't too mad.. so I went down to unchain her and as I got down the steps I noticed she had something else in front of her. She had found herself a horseshoe! (I knew this house was lucky!!) I finally caught on to why she was so proud of herself, she had found a treasure and wanted to share it with me. I mean come on.. how can you be mad at that?! It was the cutest thing ever and I was proud of her too. Now we will have something to always remember Maggie by. So I took the horseshoe in and cleaned it up while Maggie sat next to me and watched. And once The Mr. got home I told him the story and showed him and Maggie was still so proud of herself. In fact anytime I move the horseshoe or touch it her whole bum gets a wagging and she knows that it's hers.

The horseshoe now sits pretty on some shelves that James and I recently built. Eventually when I have real decorations on those shelves that is where it's home will be permanently. I couldn't be mad at Maggie for digging a hole because she found something that was pretty darn cool and will now have meaning in our home and will be a great decoration in our kitchen! Thanks good girl. 

PS. The shelves are made from 100 year old barn wood! Talk about adding character in our kitchen. Also thanks gramps for letting us have some wood, you're the best!! Now our kitchen looks complete. Because before there was just this random space there. It's nice to be able to have that extra storage. PPS. I put the stuff on the shelves just so you could see what they looked like with stuff on it. It isn't what they'll really be decorated with ha ha. 


Product Review: Garnier Whole Blends Shampoo & Conditioner

This post was sponsored by Garnier Whole Blends Shampoo & Conditioner as part of a sampling activation for Crowdtap! I received complimentary products to facilitate my review. So I just want to give a HUGE shout out to them and a huge thank you for sponsoring this post!

Garnier & Crowdtap sent me five samples of each of the three new products so I could have some to try and some to share! I tried all three over a week. My personal favorite was the Honey Treasures blend BUT they all were great products!! I am going to review each shampoo and conditioner individually so sit back relax and read on.

Garnier Coconut Water Vanilla Milk Extract 
Shampoo & Conditioner: 
Out of all three of the products this one was my least favorite for one reason. While using this product it made my hair super tangled and a frizzy mess! I hated that part. It was so painful and such a pain in the rear end to brush my hair after my shower. But after all that was done and my hair was blown dry the end product was amazing. My hair smelt very good and was smooth and shiny. I wouldn't recommend this product though if your hair tangles easily but if it doesn't give it a try! You will most likely like the end result. 

Garnier Coconut Oil & Cocoa Butter Shampoo & Conditioner:
This was my second favorite out of the three products. Both the shampoo and conditioner worked really well and smelt AMAZING! It made my hair feel and look great. My hair was easier to brush through and when I blew it dry it made my hair look so much blonder and brighter. It was silky smooth. I highly recommend this product because it really helps smooth your hair and control the frizziness. I shared this product with one of my really good friends who yes also works at the post office ha ha. She was talking about how her daughter has super frizzy hair.
She was super excited when I gave her some of the samples to try. Her daughter LOVED this product also. She said that it worked out very well and tamed her frizzy hair! So there you have it two recommendations!

Garnier Honey Treasures Shampoo & Conditioner:
This shampoo and conditioner was my absolute favorite!! It made my hair smell the best and look the best. It made it feel like I just had got my hair a blowout. It was so smooth and silky. In the shower I could even feel how smooth it was making it. There were no tangles when I brushed my hair and blow drying my hair was super easy too. When I went to style my hair it was incredibly easy to do and everything went exactly like I wanted it to. I will be buying this shampoo and conditioner! This is the one out the the three that I will HIGHLY recommend at least trying. You will not be disappointed! I give this shampoo 5 stars for sure.
