Therabreath Review and Giveaway

I was given the opportunity to review some of TheraBreath's toothpaste, mouthwash, and lozenges! All of them are designed to prevent and treat bad breath. I was not familiar with TheraBreath prior to this review. But I am very thankful I was given the chance to review these wonderful products!
Fresh Breath Toothpaste

    I really liked their toothpaste. First, let me state that I am a toothpaste snob. I really usually only use one brand because I don't like the taste of others. However with TheraBreath that is not an issue. I liked the taste or rather lack of a taste. This product really does not have much taste to it, which I liked. Another plus is that it does not contain any sodium lauryl sulfate. I have been trying to cut out sulfates, so this was a great product for us. 
     I also liked their Fresh Breath Oral Rinse. This product also contains no sodium lauryl sulfate, saccharin, aspartame, or artificial colors or flavors. I love the fact that it was natural. It is a rinse that is watery, but in a good way. There was no bite, which I hate in most rinses! 

   While the other two products did not have too much taste. the fresh breath lozenges had a ton of taste! They are minty fresh and yummy. Great for getting rid of bad breath.

   TheraBreath is also has products for the prevention of canker sores. Check them out when you get a chance.

GIVEAWAY: ThereBreath is giving one lucky reader a tube of Toothpaste and a bottle of their oral rinse.

Review and GIVEAWAY: Prefense Hand Sanitizer

I was super excited to get a chance to review Prefense Non-Alcohol Hand Sanitizer. Can you believe one squirt will work for the entire day! But the thing I love the best about Prefense is the fact that it is nontoxic, which is perfect for my daughter's daycare. After sampling the sanitizer for a few days, I gave it to my daughter's teacher. They are constantly in need of hand sanitizer. Anyways, back to the pluses!!! Prefense is made from silica, which is a natural compound already found in our bodies. This keep our skin smooth and soft while protecting us from germs.

One thing I am not a fan of regular sanitizer is the fact that it dries out my hands! But Prefense does not do that! It also feels as if it is a moisturizer! Prefense kills 99.9% of bacteria, which is much needed in cold and flu season!

Burt's Bee's Natural Skin Solutions Review! Free Samples Possible

I was recently given the chance through BzzAgent to try out Burt's Bees Natural Skin Solutions. First let me disclaim that I received the product for free but all opinions expressed in this review are 100% mine! I was provided with the face wash and moisturizer.

I am totally in love with the face wash. Not only does it not break my skin out AT ALL, even after two weeks of use, but it smells so good. The level of foaming is just about perfect. The first time I washed with it, I noted that my skin did not feel dried out at all afterwards. 

The moisturizer was just the right amount of moisture. It did feel a bit heavy to me going on, but that helped it last all day. There was no need to reapply at all. Plus, when I put on makeup it helped to smooth it out. There was no oiliness at all, not when I first put it on and not hours later!

If you would like a free sample of the moisturizer and a coupon, please leave a comment with your email and I will get the sample out to you! Please note: I have a limited number of samples available so it will be on a first come first serve basis.

Donate to a family in need

I am copying this post from! I thought it would be a great idea!!!

Hey guys! The Love Drop team is at it again! They just came back from the Boston area where they dropped $5,000 worth of appliances and gifts to a woman who recently got hit by a car and is recovering in a wheelchair, and THIS month they're trying to round up the love for precious newborn triplets!


We want to help Jeff and Becca (the parents) prepare to bring them home from the hospital, as all three were born very underweight and are currently in the Neonatal ICU (they're doing great though! And will be coming home soon). With four children already, adding a surprise batch of triplets is going to put considerable financial strain on the family, and that's where we come in!

Let's help give them everything they need to welcome the triplets home, including diapers, food, furniture, gift cards - any cool baby stuff you can think of. We're shooting for at least $3,000 in cash, plus gifts.

Want to help? Here are five ways you can participate:
  • Give $1.00 - This money will help go to their family, and every dollar counts!
  • Give a gift card - Gift cards are extremely helpful. Places like Target, Wal-mart, restaurants, etc would be incredible. out.
  • Give a gift or service - Anything you can do to help this family out would be appreciated! Be creative!
  • Donate baby stuff! - Specifically diapers, formula and clothes. Gift cards here are awesome too. (Or maybe you have contacts in the baby world?)
  • Share this site with others – Tweet about Love Drop, Facebook “like” it, and share it with any friends or family you think would be interested. The more we get the word out, the more we can help the triplets! :)
Money is always needed, but the cool factor comes when people start giving creatively. Tell us how you want to give, and we’ll make it happen!

You can reach the Love Drop team here anytime with questions or by checking them out at Thanks everyone! We'll let you know how it goes!

Here at MommaMoney we love to support other mom bloggers and small businesses! Beth Aldrich is coming out with a great book in January! It is called Real Moms Love to Eat. The book is all about loving food and losing weight at the same time. This book really spoke with me because I love food. I love cooking for my family including desserts, but I still need to lose some post baby weight!!

One great part about the book is that it contains a 21 days of recipes, tips, and lifestyle changes. I am looking forward to discovering new foods and continuing on my love affair with food.

  Beth Aldrich has a great blog, Real Moms Love to Eat, you should check it out. She is also hosting a Sweepstakes that you can enter. She is giving away prizes twice a month. If you pre-order the book you will get one entry and if you sign up for her newsletter you get a second entry.

Disclosure: I was gifted a free copy of the book and an affiliate swag bag for my participation.

Top ways to keep your family healthy through cold and flu season.

     Many of you know that I have a wonderful 18 month old toddler named Madalyn. Well, Madalyn goes to daycare and comes home with all the germs she has gathered from the other wonderful toddlers. I am in law school and stuck in rooms with hundreds of other students. We all share germs. The last thing I want to do is have to take a day off of school to take care of a sick baby and if you are a stay at home mom probably the last thing you want is to be sick while having to take care of kids! So here are some tips for staying well!

  1. Make sure you wash your hands plenty. I love using the Lysol Healthy Touch No Hands Soap Dispenser. This makes it easy to wash without touching and spreading germs. You should wash for at least 20 seconds or as long as it takes to sing the Happy Birthday song twice! 
  2. Make sure you disinfect highly touched areas of your house. I try to spray down all door handles once a day. I make sure the counter tops are cleaned everyday with disinfecting spray. 
  3. Get plenty of rest. As moms, we are always doing hundreds of things and not necessarily taking care of ourselves. I learned this well this past week. Make sure you are getting at least 7-8 hours of sleep a night and eating your fruits and veggies!
  4. Remove your shoes as soon as you enter the house. We are lucky to have hardwood floors downstairs, but I do not want to have all the dirt from outside trapped in the carpet. We also make sure we mop the floors at least a week. 
  5. If you are sick, stay home from work or school. It is easier for one person to get over sickness than for an entire class to try to get over it. It just drags out the recovery period. 
  6. Get your flu shot!!!!!  Like Lysol® on Facebook and get a flu shot badge and an opportunity to receive a $5 flu shot rebate. Learn more about the flu rebate at
  7. If one person in your family is sick, try to limit who is around them. If dad is sick, perhaps just mom should help him. If one child is sick, try to keep them away from other children.
  8. Avoid touching your eyes, mouth, and nose. This just spreads germs more. 
  9. Always use a tissue to wipe your nose. Do not continue to reuse that tissue instead throw it away as soon as you wipe your nose. 
  10. Getting moderate exercise and proper nutrition are great ways to strengthen your immune system.
Keeping my family healthy and happy is one of my biggest goals as I am sure it is for most moms and dads! The best way to prevent the flu is to follow these points and make sure you have a flu vaccine. Everyone 6 months and older should have been given the immunization.
