Bath & Body Works' True Blue Spa Mango Butter

I recently purchased the new line of True Blue Spa products named Mango Butter.  The line consists of 4 different products.  The products are 24 Hour Moisture Body Butter, Nourishing Shower Smoothie, Replenishing Body Lotion and the Nourishing Body Bar.  All of these products are fabulous.  They smell great and are very moisturizing.  I would highly recommend all four of the products, but my two favorites were the 24 Hour Moisture Body Butter and the Nourishing Body Bar.  The body butter really helped lock in the moisture on even the driest parts of my body such as my elbows and knees. I can't say enough about the performance of the Nourishing Body Bar in the shower. The lather was terrific, and it really left my skin silky and smooth. The smell was wonderful, as well.   Bath & Body Works usually has a sale on the True Blue Spa products such as the Buy 2 Get 1 free.  Sometimes, they will have the Buy 2 Get 2 free.  Those are the best times to purchase the True Blue Spa products, but if you don't want to wait for a specific sale, then I would say that these products are worth the regular price!   

The following are the descriptions of each product from the Bath & Body Works website:

The Many Uses Of Ivory

I received an Ivory bar soap in the Mom VoxBox given to product reviewers by Influenster. This product was complimentary for testing and review purposes from Influenster. Ivory is free of dyes and heavy perfumes, Ivory provides a simple, yet effective clean for the entire family all at a reasonable price. This bar soap is 99.44% pure. I used it personally to wash my face. It is perfect for those of us that have sensitive skin. It does not dry your skin out at all and leaves your skin very soft. The results for me were wonderful. My face was in much better condition and clearer after using it for over a week. There are also many other uses for this product. A lot of people use in for laundry and stain removal. To use in the laundry, all you have to do is shave the soap into flakes and add them to the laundry. You can use it to remove stains by rubbing it into the stain and then throw it in the wash. You will be amazed by the results. Another way to use the bar of soap is for carving. You can have a fun project day with your family by carving the bar of Ivory soap.
You can 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).
Please go out and buy some Ivory soap. You will enjoy it and will not be disappointed!

Review of Quaker Soft Baked Oatmeal Cookies

I received the Mom VoxBox from Influenster this past month. I throughly enjoyed each product that was included in the box. The first item I would like to review is the Quaker Soft Baked Oatmel Cookie. I received this product complimentary for testing and review purposes from Influenster. My son is the one that tested this product and was so kind as to give me a bite! : ) I really enjoyed it. It tasted better than most soft baked cookies that I have tried in the past. My son really liked it a lot. He said that we needed to go out and buy a big box of them. He is 13 and I’d imagine he would want to eat the whole box of them. Here is some information on the cookies:
-Made with Whole Grain Quaker Oats
-Individually packaged
-Provides a good source of fiber
-Contains 6 grams of total fat per serving
You can find Quaker Soft Baked Oatmeal Cookies at most major retailers. Suggested retail price: $2.69 for a box of 6 cookies
Please go out and buy some! You will not be disappointed! Thanks Influenster and Quaker for the great product!
