Burts Bees Sensitive Facial Cleanser and Daily Moisturizing Cream

I love Burt's bees. When I had my first baby, I KNEW their's would be the lotion and baby shampoo I would use because I did not want harmful chemicals touching my sweet baby girl! (or my sweet baby boys who arrived two years later.) I feel in love with their baby lotion and used it myself quite often and I also use their acne line, which is the first cleanser that has not made me break out even further.

I was over the moon to hear that Burt's Bees had a line for sensitive skin!! I was even more ecstatic to learn that I was chosen to participate in a BzzCampaign from BzzAgent where I would get to try out these products myself. I have eczema and get occasional bouts of acne, so my skin is super hard to find products for that don't break me out further, make my face burn or overall just make the problems worse than if I hadn't used anything at all. That was not the case with the two Burt's Bees products I have been using, The Sensitive Facial Cleanser and the Daily Moisturizing Cream. My face has never felt so clean and smooth after using a cleansing product. I love that these two products work together to help my skin feel pampered. I suffer from extremely dry skin in the winter and so far these products have really helped me not feel like my skin is dry at all! I think the facial cleanser and the moisturizing cream work very well on their own, but I think I will pick up the night cream soon to round out the set and get the best results possible. I could not rave more about this line of products, Burts Bees has exceeded my expectations once again!

I am a bzzagent and received these products in exchange for my opinion. All opinions here are my own.

Torani Syrups review and giveaway

**In honor of the SheSpeaks Torani party tonight, I am giving away ONE MORE FREE TORANI COUPON! To enter, leave a comment below letting me know what syrup you want to try and what recipe you would try it in!!!
You must be a follower of this blog and leave your email in your comment so I have a way to notify you if you won! Good luck all! I will draw a winner after the party tonight!! :)

I was excited to receive two full size bottles of Torani's flavor syrups from one of my favorite websites SheSpeaks. The two that I got were the Classic Hazelnut syrup and the Sugar Free Pumpkin pie syrup.

I immediately opened the Pumpkin Pie because I love anything pumpkin in the fall! I was a little iffy on how I would like it because I am not a Splenda fan and that is what it is sweetened with. I am happy to report that I didn't notice an aftertaste at all and that is usually what turns me off where Splenda is concerned. I am not a coffee drinker, so I tried it in my Choffy. (Do yourself a favor and get some! It's soooo good!) It was pretty good. I was more impressed with the Hazelnut. It is more up my ally with no artificial sweeteners in it and I love that they use pure cane sugar as the sweetener instead of corn syrup or something similar. I used the hazelnut in a hot chocolate recipe I found on the Torani website. And it was good. So good.

I didn't even know that you could buy Torani syrups in the store, but since I received my samples, I have learned that they have them at Central Market and World Market. There is also a handy store locator on the Torani website. Most impressive to me is the vast amount of flavors of syrups and recipes to use them in available on You can make all sorts of drinks ranging from a coffee shop quality drink to a fruity cocktail!

I am giving two lucky readers a coupon for free Torani syrups. All you have to do to enter is go to the Torani website and tell me what flavor you would like to try and what recipe you would use it in. I know my next Torani syrup or 2) will be something fruity, maybe watermelon, I am itching to make a cocktail!

Bonus entry for anyone you refer to follow this blog. No limit on the amount of referrals, just make sure in their comment they post that you sent them here. In addition, if someone you referred wins a coupon, you will as well! :)

Contest will end this Saturday at 9 pm central Time. Good luck everyone!
