Neosporin Essentials

My son and my husband’s side of the family all suffer from eczema, we’ve been dealing with our sons bad eczema since he was born and while it’s gotten a little better, it’s still fairly bad, especially in the winter. Currently we don’t use any kind of prescribed medication, an over the counter brand is doing it’s job so far. I don’t want to put him on steroid at this point since the over the counter stuff is working, I’m just hoping it’s something he’ll grow out of or we can manage without the prescriptions.

Neosporin is the #1 Doctor recommended brand of over-the-counter topical antibiotic ointments and now, their company is introducing a brand new line of skin care products called Neosporin Essentials that help those with eczema or atopic dermatitis.

Each of the 3 products in this new line contain Relipid formula which contains a lipid, humectant, emollient and botanical blend that helps to retain moisture that is essential for healthy looking skin! The product line includes Eczema Essentials Daily Moisturizing Cream, Moisture Essentials Daily Body Wash, and Eczema Essentials Anti-Itch Cream. All are fragrance-free and contain no antibiotics.

I’m always up for trying new lotions though to see how he does with them and how they help so when I had the opportunity to try the new Neosporin Essentials I was all for it.

We are always honest with our reviews and while the Neosporin did an ok job on my husband’s eczema but on our son it seemed to break him out even more. He’s sensitive to a lot of things and this is one of them unfortunately. I was really hoping it would help better than what we’re using now but for now we will be sticking with our current brand. I honestly hate to say anything bad about Neosporin simply for the fact that they make great products and we use a lot of those products but this one just didn’t work out for us, I do recommend trying it for yourself though because as we all know everyone is different and it could really help you.

If you’d like to try it for yourself right now you can get a $5 coupon from the Walmart website: Neosporin $5.00 Eczema Essentials Coupon! and a separate coupon on Neosporin.com

I wrote this review while participating in a campaign by Mom Central Consulting on behalf of Neosporin Essentials and received a product sample to facilitate my review, and a promotional item to thank me for participating. All opinions are 100% mine.

Mobile Moms Stroller Hand Muff Review

We were recently sent a Mobile Moms Stroller Hand Muff to review. Before this opportunity came along I had never heard of a stroller hand muff and to be honest wasn’t quite sure how it would work out.

The Mobile Moms Stroller Hand Muff is a convenient and easy to use hand muff that easily attaches to a stroller to help keep the hands of Mobile Moms and Dads warm while they push the stroller. The attachments are velcro so you can easily put it on the stroller and adjust to fit any type of stroller. We tested it out on our twin stroller which has a handle straight across but it claims to fit the fold up stroller handles with two separate handles as well. It also has a zippered pocket so while you’re on the go you have a place to hold your keys, cell phone, etc. with easy access.

Here is a picture of the hand muff we received for review.. I just simply and quickly attached it to our stroller handle bars so you could see how it fits on the stroller.

I’ve been running around so much without the stroller and between that and working we haven’t had a chance to go for any walks. My husband of course takes the kids during the day while I’m working but he doesn’t want a hot pink hand muff attached to the stroller while he’s out! I can’t say that I blame him really. I’m sure he’d definitely opt in for a black or gray one once the weather starts to get a little cooler!

Here is another example of how one would look on a regular opened up stroller
Fall is my favorite season and some morning it can be quite chilly. I’m super excited to put the hand muff to work this fall and winter. The inside of the hand muff is a soft warm material so it’ll definitely be good during the cool seasons and those cool morning. I hate to wear gloves while pushing the stroller, it seems like my hands just slip and slide around the handle so it’ll be nice to still be able to keep my hands warm while I have a good grip on the stroller.
One of Mobile Moms’ other signature products is the Mobile Moms Black Toastie Toddler which helps keep your little one warm while he/she is in a carrier. The Toastie Toddler also has easy velcro attachments and works with a five point harness system. It’s 100% waterproof, windproof and machine washable. You can take the insert out in the Spring and on cold winter days you snap the blanket in for the extra warmth. It seems so versatile and handy I couldn’t imagine any mom not being able to use something like this for her little one.

Stress Ease Comfort Reader Pillow Review

In his best-selling book “Power Sleep: The Revolutionary Program that Prepares Your Mind For Peak Performance,” and the sequel “Sleep for Success! Everything You Must Know About Sleep But Are Too Tired to Ask,” sleep researcher Dr. James B. Maas discusses the importance of a nightly pre-sleep ritual, explaining:

In order to sleep soundly through the night, your body needs to prepare itself for the long period of inactivity ahead. It needs a buffer between the day’s stress and the night’s rest. You need to find peace and calm in the hour before bed. Slipping between the sheets and closing your eyes should be the very last part of the pre-sleep ritual.

Dr. Maas has teamed with bedding manufacturer United Feather & Down to introduce the first support pillow built specifically for your pre-sleep ritual to provide superior comfort while resting, watching T.V., or doing homework: The Stress Ease™ Comfort Reader™ Pillow, part of the Sleep for Success!™ by Dr. James B. Maas multi-functional comfort and support pillow collection.

Features of the Sleep for Success!™  Stress Ease™ Comfort Reader™ Pillow include:

  • Lumbar Support for Lower Back Pain Relief: The Stress Ease Comfort Reader is constructed with an independent lumbar support compartment to provide superior support for the lower back and help prevent back pain while sitting.  Rotate the pillow and the independent support compartment provides support for the upper back and shoulders.
  • Hot/Cold Therapy for Pain and Stress Relief: To help reduce stress and ease minor aches and pains, each Stress Ease Comfort Reader Pillow comes with a unique Hot/Cold Therapy Pack.  Simply heat or cool the Therapy Pack, place inside the pocket on the pillow protector, and recline for ultimate relief and relaxation.
  • Top-Quality Craftsmanship That Fits With Decor: The Stress Ease Comfort Reader is crafted by premier bedding manufacturer United Feather & Down, a company with more than two centuries of experience as a major supplier of premium quality bedding for the country’s top retailers and hotels. The pillow is constructed of a durable Twill-Weave Cotton with a Down-Alternative fill, for unparalleled comfort and support. Additionally, it’s designed to fit a European Square size pillow sham to complement your décor. The protective removable cover is a soft, Combed Cotton with a strategically placed pocket for the hot/cold therapy pack.
  • Expert Sleep Advice: Each Stress Ease Comfort Reader pillow is packaged with a copy of Dr. Maas’ sleep tips booklet, featuring excerpts from his best-selling books to help you achieve the best sleep possible.

The Review:

“Oooh” was honestly the first words out of my mouth after trying out The Stress Ease Comfort Reader! This giant pillow not only relaxed me but I also had some lower back pain when I tried it out, hoping it would help. I set the pillow up against our headboard and got settled in. Looking at the pillow it looks bulky, but trust me.. this is a wonderful thing! The pillow was so comfortable and relaxing I literally fell asleep propped up against it! And yes, it also helped with that annoying back pain that I’d been fighting all day.

What is even cooler about The Stress Ease Comfort pillow, which is 200 thread count cotton twill by the way is that it comes with a hot/cold pack to help with those aches and pains we get from working so hard throughout the day. Man I wish I had one of these when I was pregnant!

The Stress Ease Comfort Pillow can be purchased at thegreatindoors.com, it retails for $49.99 but trust me ladies.. it’s well worth the cost. For you gentlemen out there this would make the perfect gift (Mother’s Day is coming up!) for all women.

Jeep Wrangler Unlimited g-edition Umbrella Stroller Review

mfgiftguideitemI was thrilled to receive the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited g-edition Umbrella Stroller to check out and review. As you may know, we have had quite the time with our first stroller (which is now broken within less than a year of using it), so I couldn’t wait to see how this Jeep stroller did.

One of the things I really liked when I heard about this stroller was that it’s part of the g-edition™ line. Products in the g-edition™ line are made with PET fabric that utilizes 16 ounce bottles recycled from 100% post consumer waste.” And to make it fun.. the stroller itself is green!

Since we have twins, we couldn’t take them both out for a walk, so my husband decided to watch the little man while my daughter and I went and did some window shopping – it was the perfect excuse for me to get out with only one child.. sometimes taking them both with me, by myself, is just too much!

The stroller looks heavy, but it’s definitely not.. it’s lightweight which is really good for us moms. It’s also easy to set up and break down which is another plus for us busy moms.

The seating area is extra large and can hold up to 50 pounds.. there is also plenty of storage room so you can take along your nstrollergreen_thumbnecessities. I was so excited to see that the seat reclines. This is a must have for us because for one, our son is much smaller than our daughter and he likes to recline.. he loves it and two, he usually falls asleep when he’s in the stroller and we love to recline the seat as much as we can so he can nap a little more comfortably.

More Great Features:

  • Cool-Climate Roll-up Exposes Mesh for Increased Air Circulation & Creates a Head Rest
  • Extra Large Seating Area Holds Up To 50 lbs
  • Handle Height Great for Tall Parents
  • Convenient Travel Bag
  • Generous 2 Tier Sunrider Canopy with Windshield & Cell Phone Pocket
  • Parent Cup Holder
  • Large All-Terrain Shock-Absorbing Front Swivel Wheels
  • Quick Umbrella Fold with Carry Handle
  • Storage Basket and Cargo Bags for Gear
  • 5-point Safety Harness
  • Stroller is lightweight, only 15.5 lbs.
  • Compact fold: 8” x 10.5” x 45”
  • Reclining seat, great for smaller babies
  • Convenient Parent Cup Holder
  • Comfort-Grip Padded Handles

Overall the stroller did very well, I was impressed. It gave a smooth ride, had more storage room than we needed and was very sturdy. We haven’t had any problems so far and I can definitely say I would recommend this stroller.
