Burt's Bees Natural Skin Solutions

I was recently invited as a BzzAgent to tryout a new line of products from Burt's Bees, called Natural Solutions Sensitive. I have pretty sensitive skin especially on my face, so I was eager to test these products and give my opinion.

After using them for about a month now, all I can say is WOW! I have been a loyal user of Olay for years and I never thought I would switch. But the facial cleanser and moisturizer from this line are so light and creamy and luxurious!

The cleanser goes on smoothly, smells wonderful and rinses easily and cleanly with no residue. The moisturizer is so light and absorbs quickly. My face feels soft and supple for HOURS afterward! I even tried going back to my old products to compare and I really prefer the scent, texture, and feeling of the Burt's Bees Natural Skin products over my old skincare routine.

So I think I have officially found new skincare products to use. I would recommend them to anyone with sensitive skin. They are made from 99% natural ingredients and are available at stores such as Target, Walmart, and drugstore chains.

Soda Stream Home Soda Maker

I have been planning on buying this for my husband for Christmas and now I may get the opportunity to try one out as a BzzAgent! The Soda Stream home soda maker lets you turn plain tap water into sparkling water beverages or soda in under 30 seconds with no clean up, no batteries or electricity. Too good to be true??? I'd love to find out!!!

The maker itself comes in a variety of designs to fit any kitchen decor. There are 30 flavor syrups available including regular and diet flavors, sparkling water, energy drinks, and sparkling teas. The Soda Stream bottles are BPA free and can be used and reused for up to 2 years. Not only is the Soda Stream system a great value but it is healthier than traditional sodas. For example, regular Coke and Pepsi have 100 cal/serving while Soda Stream cola has just 34. And they use NO high fructose corn syrups. Inexpensive, convenient and good for the environment since there are no bottles and cans to recycle each week.

The Soda Stream is available at thousands of retail stores, including Sears, Macys, Kohls, Best Buy, Bed Bath & Beyond, Williams Sonoma, Crate & Barrel, JCPenney, and many more.

If I get a chance to try this out and our family likes it as much as I think we will, this will be THE gift to give this Christmas!

Lunch Bots

Seeing how I pack 4 lunches each and every school/workday, I have begun a quest for a better lunch container! Haven't had much luck, when lo and behold, Bzz Agent offer the chance to try out Lunch Bots stainless steel containers. I am really hoping I get to try these out and review them. Even the lids are stainless, they are a nice size for a sandwich and side, and the prices are very reasonable (starting at just $14.99). I would love to get the Duo for each of the three kids (and the hubby LOL) and I am also curious about the Thermal as Evan often brings hot soup to school and it never seems to stay as hot as he'd like in the container we own now. If anyone presently uses these, please le me know what you think and if I am given the chance to try them, I will blog about it!
