Botanical Splash – Body Moisturizer and Revitalizer Review

Winter is coming, and for me (and many of you, I’m sure!) that means dry skin. Right on cue, Trusted Health Products sent me a bottle of Botanical Splash, their new Body Moisturizer and Revitalizer. (Full disclosure: I did receive this item for free in exchange for my honest review.) I will admit, I had high expectations for this product! I have reviewed a couple of things previously from Trusted Health Products, and have not been disappointed!

Botanical Splash is a blend of 100% pure botanical oils – almond, orange, lime, lemon, olive and avocado. It works well on all skin types, and has no preservatives, parabens, petroleum-based oils, GMOs, synthetic chemicals, artificial fragrances, colorings, or additives of any kind!

There are so many things I love about this product! The spray application makes it very easy to use. Just spray, and lightly spread on the skin. No greasy lotion residue all over your hands! The refreshing citrus scent is great to wake up to. I use it in the morning after my shower, and a little extra throughout the day on trouble spots, like my elbows and knees. It definitely has smoothed these rough areas! My skin just soaks it up, and it feels so clean and healthy! Botanical Splash can also be used as an underarm deodorant. I haven’t tried it for that purpose, but I think I will.

Once again, Trusted Health Products has provided a great MULTI-USE product! Using Botanical Splash, not only am I treating my skin with natural oils (as opposed to chemicals), I’ll save money, too! I am a very happy customer!

{SPECIAL OFFER} For a limited time, the manufacturer is willing to offer my readers one FREE bottle. They said they would love to have our readers try out Botanical Splash and agreed to send one bottle FREE if our readers would pay a minimal shipping and handling charge. This is a one-time only offer! Click here to get your FREE bottle now!

Simply Bridal Classic Microfiber Quilted Tote Review

A few weeks ago, I did a giveaway for Simply Bridal Invitations and Gifts.  Today, I am reviewing an item I chose for myself from their website. (Full disclosure, I did receive this item free of charge from Simply Bridal, in exchange for a review and giveaway.)

I don’t know about you, but I love tote bags. They are so versatile!  I have several brands and sizes, but surprisingly, even the smallest one in my collection was too big for a quick trip out with one child. That’s why I’m so glad I found the Simply Bridal Classic Microfiber Quilted Tote. It’s the perfect marriage (pun intended) of size and style, and I don’t look like the crazy bag lady who packs her entire house for a trip to the grocery store with her 3 year old!


I’ve been using the bag almost exclusively for a couple of weeks now, and it’s really working out well. The quilted exterior and polka dot interior are both easy to wipe clean, and I love the extra large interior zippered pocket! Both my wallet and cell phone fit, and there’s extra room, as well. The main compartment has plenty of space for the items I carry on a regular basis.


The only time I wished I had a larger bag is for our weekly trip to the library. It was very heavy with all of our books in it, and without padded straps, it was a bit uncomfortable to carry. I’m also not a huge fan of the outer pockets on either side of the bag. I was unable to fit my usual Klean Kanteen water bottle in them, but I did squeeze my Brita water bottle in with some effort. I think it would be fine for a plastic water or soda bottle, though.

Overall, I am very pleased with the Simply Bridal Classic Microfiber Quilted Tote. I can see myself using this bag for many years to come.

Let’s Cure Childhood Cancer Together

** I am an affiliate blogger for zulily, but I am not receiving a commission on the links below.  I am only sharing to bring awareness to this cause, and I hope you will donate if you can.  Thank you! 

September is National Childhood Cancer Awareness month, and zulily is doing their part to help find a cure. Through September 30th, together with zulily we can help fund the Ben Towne Foundation, a nonprofit public charity that is working to accelerate the pace of new breakthrough research. Doctors at the Ben Towne Childhood Cancer Center for Research at the Seattle Children’s Research Institute have been working on an immunotherapy treatment that could make cancer treatment as we know it a thing of the past—within our lifetime. They are developing a treatment that uses a child’s own immune system to fight cancer, eliminating the need for chemotherapy, radiation and surgery. Within 20 years, this cure could become the new normal.

Together we can help the reality of finding a cure go from ‘if’ to ‘when’.Visit zulily to donate to the Ben Towne Foundation, and to read more about the lives that this potential cure has already touched, and the doctors working so hard to make this miracle real. 100% of all donations will be used to support the research at the BTCCCR.
