Studio Gear's Hydrating CC Cream Review and Discount

I received a complementary Studio Gear Hydrating CC Cream to try out. I am obsessed with CC Cream and was thrilled to try this out. I am kind of new to the whole cc craze but totally in love with it. I was never much of a make up person. Just an eyelash curler and mascara kind of girl but I am hooked on cc cream and wear it every day. The studio gear cc cream is amazing!
The cc cream comes in three shades: Linen, natural, and wheat. I choose the natural shade. I loved how smooth the cc cream blends. It did not leave streaks and it felt light and natural. I do not like the caked on look or feel and this was far from that!!! The cream is lightweight and oil free so you don't have to worry about getting breakouts from it. It also has hydra-extend technology that lasts 72 hours!I live in Florida so here SPF is important. This is a must have make-up item and I highly recommend! The studio gear cc cream has SPF20. Studio Gears Hydrating CC Cream is available here:
Also this code will get you 10% off: bloggercc

The Handy Box Review and Giveaway

The Handy Box is a great new monthly subscription box. I was thrilled when I was able to receive a complementary pre- launch box from The Handy Box to review. I have five boys! and a mechanic husband so this box was perfect for our family. The Handy Box is a monthly subscription box that sends useful tools and gadgets for people who love to do projects at home. This would be a great gift for a spouse, a friend and a wonderful moving into a new house gift!! This would also be a fantastic father's day gift idea as well. The boxes start at $24.95 a month and the price is lowers with longer subscriptions. The boxes will be valued at over $40 each month. The box will send 4-6 items per box every month. Here is the first look at the box.

The box came with six items which is a lot for a subscription box. The first item is a crank power LED flashlight. This is great since batteries are not needed for it. It takes only 15 seconds to crank and you get 15 minutes of light. This is also small and pocket sized so it fits in any tool box or emergency kit.I think this is a great emergency kit item. I live in Florida so this will stay in our emergency kit for a power outage scenario.

The second item was a hex key ring set. This is made in switchblade style so it is easy to use. My husband was excited about this and said it will be very useful for him. These are also known as allen keys if your not aware.
The third item is 4 AA batteries. These are Duracell procell batteries which are top quality. Let's face it EVERYONE can use batteries. Love that they included high quality long lasting batteries in the box.
The fourth item is a compass. This compass is a key chain. The neat feature is that it includes a thermometer which measure Fahrenheit or Celsius. . My husband already added this to his key chain!
The fifth item is a measuring tape. This is a 10 fit measure tape which is also a very practical and useful item. My kids love measuring tapes so we replace them often so this will be helpful in our house.
The last item was the big item and this alone is worth the price of the box. It is a 25 piece tool kit that is a flashlight This is compact and a great tool to have. This really made the box in itself with the $24.95.
A look outside of the box.
I was very pleased with the box as my husband was too. I think I am going to get him a subscription since he always gripes that there are not many boxes geared towards his interests but he loved this box.You can sign up for a subscription here. The Handy Box is offering one of my readers a box of their own just like the box I reviewed. . Simply Enter the giveaway below!

I received a free box in return for an honest review. All opinions are my own.

I am a mom of five so I am doing laundry daily! Boys and a mechanic husband make a ton of laundry. I was able to try out the New Purex Crystal Limited Edition Fabulously Fresh in wash fragrance Booster. I am a huge fan of the Purex in wash boosters since they actually work very well and you can still smell the fresh scent even when wearing your clothes. These are so easy to use and you simply add them into your laundry load at the start of the cycle.
You will be amazed at the scent when you take your clothes out of the dryer and can still smell the fabulously fresh scent. You will be even more shocked when you still smell it when you take a piece of clothing out to wear. The freshness lasts for weeks! As a mom one of my main concerns for laundry addictives is if it is safe for my children. The Purex Crystals are safe for children's clothing as well which is a huge bonus. It also does not damage your clothes or towels in any way!  Purex is hosting a sweepstakes where you can win 1,000 and a year supply of Purex! Enter Here:

Soxxy Air Compression Socks and Charity Campaign

Through Brand Backer I was able to join the Soxxy Air Compression Socks campaign. I use compression socks so I thought this was a great product to try out.I started using compression socks when I was pregnant because they offered great support for pregnancy on top of working in a retail environment on my feet all day. I soon realized what a great benefit compressions socks offered and still wear them. I love that the Soxxy Air brand is also supporting charity by donating a portion of proceeds from each purchase. There are five sock styles and each will support a specific charity. So you can choose which sock to purchase by either style or which charity you would like to support. They make compression socks both fun and stylish which is a great improvement from what is usually such a bland item I just love the soxxy designs. The socks will be available at the end of April. They are offering a reader discount of 20% with code: SoxxyAirs
You can visit the site here to order
You can also check out a special video from the founder here
I look forward to receiving my sample sock from the brand and will post my review when I receive them. I just love when brands reach out and love to help charities and support good causes.

I love getting boxes for my children so I tried this one out since I was able to get a deal on Plum District for new subscribers and got my first box for $20 . A subscription is $35 a month if you choose monthly option for billing. I did a box for 2-3 year old boys. My box came with 5 items in it.

The fourth item is a Little Golden Book The Little Red Hen. I love reading and I like they included a book. The retail is $3.99
The fifth item is a mom item. I love when kid's boxes include a mom item. This is another skip hop item. It is a cute carrying case for id cards and credit cards. It also has a clasp to clip onto a purse or bag. The retail is $5.


The fifth item is a mom item. I love when kid's boxes include a mom item. This is another skip hop item. It is a cute carrying case for id cards and credit cards. It also has a clasp to clip onto a purse or bag. The retail is $5.

Overall I LOVED my first box. I was very excited about two skip hop items plus the plan toys sort and count. The box is $35 a month or you can buy a longer subscription and get boxes as low as $32 a month. The box value was over $40 so I feel the value is there.

Saving Star Digital Coupons plus Free item every Friday

As a mom of five boys and a hungry husband I am always looking for ways to save at the grocery store. I do use coupons and also use digital savings apps on my phone. One of my favorite digital coupon app/website is savings star.  Saving Star is a great way to help maximize savings at the grocery store. You can sign up for an account at savings star and then you link your grocery store loyalty cards and let the savings roll in. They have tons of e coupons that all you need to do is click and they load onto your digital account. Once you purchase the item using your linked loyalty card your savings is then credited into your savings star account. Once you reach $5 you can request payout by paypal or amazon. It is very easy to reach $5 since they have tons of coupons. My two favorite parts are the healthy offer of the week and the Friday freebie. Every week they have a healthy item such as fresh strawberries, oranges, or some other fresh fruit or vegetable where you can earn 20% cash back from your purchase. This is a great addition since it is hard to find extra savings on fresh produce!! Also the best is the Friday freebie. Every Friday they offer an item that is 100% cash back such as dish soap, baking soda, rolls, and this week is a Renuzit Cone which is 100% cash back.  Sign up through the link below and start your savings today and make sure to take advantage of t he Friday freebie and the healthy offer of the week.
