receive credit for you using the invite to order something for the first time. Thank You!!!

 The following is what I had ordered this month, you can change what you'd like delivered to your door every month or you can keep it the same. You can order
several of the same thing, or one of each (up to eight items). They have a total of 41 items, (two items have your choice between 3 scents)

I have used this item on my step-daughters clothes and bed linens along with the Oxy Boost... WOW!!!! okay, so she has been having accidents lately at night while she's sleeping. We've always allowed their last drink to be during supper, okay, yes, they have a few sips here and there sometimes after supper, BUT they ALWAYS use the bathroom before bed... 

So anyways, like I said, she's having accidents, which leaves her bed linens and clothes (she's always had accidents during the day a couple times a week) smelling of urine. I have tried SEVERAL things to try and get the smell out. The best thing (but didn't work all too well) was using Baking Soda that I placed in with the clothes to help eliminate the smell of urine. HOWEVER, there was always that faint lingering smell of urine left behind when I pulled them out of the dryer.

The Honest Companies Laundry Detergent along with 2 pods (they state for Small and Medium loads use 1 pod, and then Large and Extra-Large loads use 2 pods) got the smell of urine out of her clothes!!!! I could smell my fabric softener and dryer sheets instead of urine when I took the clothes out of the dryer today!!! 

That makes me freaking super happy and I will continue to buy at least those two products on a monthly basis. The only bad thing is that by using 2 pods I can only have 12 loads done using the Oxy Boost... BUT no worries... I'm ordering 2 more in my next months box so I know I don't run out!!!!




I LOVE lotion... I won't be using this on my face as I don't use lotion on there, but it will be and has been used on my arms and legs. If I didn't love  the smell of baby lotion, I'd probably use it on my kids too.

There really isn't a smell to it, so if you like using lotion but can't stand the strong smells or can't have strong smelling lotion due to where you work, this is the product for  you!!

BUG SPRAY $12.95
If you watched my YouTube video you'll hear me stating that I can't wait to try this product because the flies keep biting my kids and I, as well as
mosquito. As of yesterday, August 1st there have been three confirmed cases of West Nile in Colorado (Where I live) It has been raining the past few days, and we have the rest of the 10 day forecast full of rain. So... the Mosquito population will be on the rise in the next few weeks!!

 Of the nearly 6,000 cases last year about half involved neuroinvasive diseases and it caused
270 deaths. The article I read that in also talks about a gentleman who is paralyzed because of the West Nile Virus... you can read the article HERE. It is from CBS News in Colorado.

 So... I will be keeping this with me wherever I go, and will probably order another one next month to keep in the diaper bag if it works against the flies!!

The items above added up to $57.75...
Since the bundle only cost me $35.95 I saved $21.80 by bundling them together!!!
I think that's pretty good savings!!!



I used this on my step-daughter's floor, curtains, and in her closet... I am hoping that this will help with the lingering smell of urine in her room. We've rented a rug doctor for our house and mainly used it in her room to get the urine out of her carpet so it gets the smell out of it. My mother-in-law gave us her carpet cleaner so we could use it on her floor as well whenever we needed it instead of renting one all the time... BELIEVE me... I've used that carpet cleaner SEVERAL times a week on her floor because it never fails... she falls asleep on the floor or ends up on the floor. 

AGAIN... The stench of urine still lingers in her room... I figure it's the carpet... WHO KNOWS... I use that stuff you sprinkle on the floor and then vacuum up, and that lasts for a bit. I don't know if she just has that many accidents in her room and lies to me or if it really has just seeped into the carpet and stuff below it... 

I HOPE that this works to get rid of that urine smell, because we are in a rental, and can't afford to buy new carpet for her room!!


 See my review above about the laundry detergent... I talk about this there... RECOMEND THIS!!!!!


 I've tried the Sweet Orange Vanilla, but I just started today. They smell great, go on smooth, don't leave a "bad" residue behind when you kiss
someone. (Kissed my hand and felt it afterwards. LOL) So I bet my husband will appreciate that when I kiss him next!!

 I have already placed my order for  next month... I'm trying a few new products and I'll review those new products as well. Here's what I've ordered and unless I change the date I'll have it on or around the 29th...

 Laundry Detergent
Oxy Boost
Oxy Boost **YES 2 of them**
Conditioning Mist
Bug Spray

Then I added on two items... 

Suds up Dish Brush & Ceramic Foaming Base
Dryer Cloths.
