I was recently lucky enough to be chosen to receive a Mom Voxbox from Influenster chock full of lovely products. Among them was a single bar of ivory soap that Ivory was kind enough to send . Although I’m not normally a ‘bar’ soap type of person, I did find many uses for this product. I flaked some into my laundry and it did a great job. Also, I found that it’s actually pure and gentle enough to use on my face without breakouts. Overall, very good product at a reasonable price. Find your Ivory now at your nearest retailer, including stores such as Walmart and Target as well as any major grocery, dollar and drug store. A 10-pack of Ivory bar soap retails for around $4.49 (bath bar size).

Früsh is an innovative new line of yogurt and fruit superdrinks made with real fruit and creamy yogurt. Früsh is available in 8.4oz and 32oz sizes of four fruit-filled flavors: Blueberry, Strawberry, Peach, and Strawberry Banana. Each contains 9 grams of protein, Howaru Bifido probiotics to boost immunity and aid digestion, and TruCal and calcium from milk sources which provide 50% of the recommended daily calcium requirement. Früsh is sold at Bi-Lo, Ingles, and Lowes Foods. That all sounds very well you might say, but do they taste good? That’s the real test, isn’t it? Well let me tell you, they’re awesome.
Beauty Sleeping recently had the pleasure of holding a taste test for this yummy new product and Früsh sent an amazingly generous package which included 6 of each flavor, product coupons, and ‘like’ buttons for the taste testers. I put them to the test with the world’s most discriminating of epicures…children! And their parents too, of course. The consensus was that Früsh gets a giant thumbs-up. Everyone loved them, and *several* of the kids wanted a second one immediately after they finished the first!
The Blueberry variety was the favorite with the under-four-foot crowd, while most of the adults enjoyed Strawberry or Peach. Of course, that could be because the kids made off with all the Blueberry first. In fact, there’s a rumor that the Beauty Sleeping children actually drank ALL of the Blueberry Früsh before the tasting party, necessitating replacements to be purchased. That’s just a rumor of course. Strawberry Banana was a strong contender as well but a lot of people mentioned that they would have preferred a Raspberry option instead.
I would like to thank Früsh for this thoroughly enjoyable opportunity. Please visit Früsh at gofrush.com or find them on Facebook at facebook.com/gofrush to Shake It Up!

If you have little ones with allergies then you’re probably already familiar with Children’s Claritin. It’s a lifesaver for many of us and an indispensable part of the allergy season ‘survival kit’ that all allergy moms keep on hand. Children’s Claritin has long been part of my own ‘survival kit’ and I’m proud to say that BeautySleeping is now part of the Children’s Claritin Mom Crew. Mom Select and Children’s Claritin have put together this initiative to help moms and kids with tips and resources to get through allergy season. There’s a printable coupon for Children’s Claritin available here

I’m so pleased to announce that Beauty Sleeping has been chosen to take part in this special opportunity, Coppertone Water MOMS. We all know how important sun protection for everyone, but especially our little ones, is during the summer. I’m committed to making sure my babies are protected EVERY time they’re exposed to the sun and I hope you are too! I received an absolutely fantastic welcome kit from Mom Select and Coppertone which included a canvas tote bag, samples of Coppertone products, a water bottle, and an inflatable beach ball. I’ve already handed out almost all of the sample tubes of sunscreen. Thank you Mom Select and Coppertone!
