Smartyrents.com Giveaway—CLOSED

I recently found about Smartyrents.com. Smartyrents.com is a website that works along the idea of netflix or gamefly. The difference is, it’s all educational games for your little ones educational game systems. They rent out games for: Leapster, V.smile, Didj, V.motion, Clickstart, V.smile baby, V.Flash, and Little Leaps.

I wish I would have had this when my kids had a V.smile a few years ago. My kids would see new games and say “mom can we get that one!” I’d buy it only for them to be bored with it in a month or two.  Or another issue was I’d buy it and it just wasn’t what I thought it would be. While the games for most of these educational systems are relatively inexpensive, Smartyrents.com is an easy way for your kids to try them. One thing I like about Smartyrents.com is, if your little one really likes the game, you can use their “love it” feature which allows you to buy the game at a reduced price. If they don’t like the game, just send it back and they will send you the next game in the “your game” list.

There are several packages to choose from:

1 game at a time for $9.99/mo
2 games at a time for $14.99/mo
3 games at a time for $19.99/mo
4 games at a time for $24.99/mo

The multiple packages are great for families with several children that have say, the personal Leapsters, and they each want their own game.

You get to keep the game for as long as you want. Keep it for a week or a year. just pay the monthly subscription fee of the package you choose. Don’t forget that you can take advantage of the “love it” feature to buy it at a reduced cost if your little one just can’t part with the game.

Shipping is FREE. Both to and from. When you receive your game(s) you will also be sent and prepaid return mailer to send it back when you’re ready.

Smartyrents.com also offers gift certificates.

Smartyrents.com is offering my readers a coupon code for 1 FREE month of 1 game at a time $9.99 package OR the code can be used for $9.99 towards the package of your choice. Promo Code: d1cbdd

Family Dollar Kidgets Clothing Line Review

While entering a recent Sweeptakes on FamilyDollar.com about 2 months ago, I noticed an ad for Kidgets clothing. I clicked on the ad. What cute clothes for such a fantastic price!

I contacted Family Dollar and they were so gracious as to let me review some clothes from the Kidget clothing line.   I got a couple outfits for my youngest son and some for my niece so you could see how cute the clothes are for both boys and girls.

The prices for the Kidgets clothes range from $4-$8 for an outfit.  I don’t know about you, but when all my kids were babies and changing sizes every three months, I just couldn’t see spending a lot of money on clothes.  I’m a fan of Family Dollar anyway.  I had so much fun picking out these outfits.  Here are a few outfits I picked out for my youngest son. I looked in a couple local Family Dollars. It seems the Kidget Line only goes up to size 6. My two older boys are in bigger sizes.  They do have clothes in Bugle Boy brand for the older kids that are in really cool styles. 

The above pictured outfit is after 2 washes.  It did not shrink or fade. It was a preppy little summer outfit. size 18 months

This is another outfit I bought.  I bought it so it will fit him next summer.  This is a 24 month outfit. (If you’re wondering the tag says $5, go ahead and enlarge it and see for yourself)

Then I bought a few outfits for my niece and my sister sent my some pictures of her modeling the outfits I bought her.  I got her one outfit that fits now and one a little bigger:

My son has worn his little preppy outfit 4 times since purchase so far.  As most 13 month olds are, he’s into everything in his clothes.  Trying to climb steps, crawling on the floor, creeping on furniture, and these clothes held up well to the everyday wear and tear.  They did not fade after several washes. 

The green outfit on my niece came with the short and 2 coordinating shirts.  I just got her to take the pictures for me and send them.  I love the way these clothes look and fit on the kids. 

The Family Dollar Kidgets clothing line is a real bargain for children.  You may want to consider Kidgets clothes when back to school shopping for your little one or when looking for a cute outfit for a child.  Family Dollar also offers the Bugle Boy clothing line for the older ones.

Review Summary:  At only $4-$8 per outfit the Kidgets clothing line is a cute clothing line that will fit into anyone’s budget.  It’s also a great price to be able to give it a try for yourselves.  I found the Kidgets clothing line to be of good quality to hold up to every day wear and tear, particularly for my son who is 13 months old.

Vist the Website:

It’s worth visiting Family Dollar’s website periodically too.  Right now they have coupons posted on their website: Family Dollar Coupons

Also there is a “Spree for Three Sweepstakes” from Family Dollar and Poise: SpreeforThree Sweeps
Grand Prize is a girls weekend, 13 first prizes are a new digital camera, and 113 2nd prizes are a 4 GB pink ipod shuffle.

***I was provided with a Family Dollar gift card to purchase clothing from the Kidgets clothing line.  I was under no obligation to give a positive review.  All opinions expressed are my own***

Review Boscia products

I had never heard of Boscia products before this review. I found Boscia while surfing the internet one day. Boscia products are preservative free and botanically based skin care per Boscia’s website. Boscia products use 100% natural fragrance and colors, no animal testing, no animal ingredients, and tested by Dermatologists. You can read about Boscia’s Philosophy here: Click here to read Bosica’s Philosophy

Boscia was so generous as to send me not 1, not 2, but 5 products to review. The first thing I will say is the prices are a bit much for me. When I was able to review them, I thought this would be a great way for me (and of course, you), to know if it’s worth spending the money on.

1. Boscia Clear Complexion Tonic with Botanical Blast: For Problem Skin

Yea this is for me.  Product description: contains Sasa Kurilensis Water that according to Boscia Suppresses sebum production.  Willow Bark that Boscia says “refines the look of pores”, and Lavender and Serine “to maintain skin moisture and leave skin feeling soft”.

You spritz this on your face after you cleanse. It is a very refreshing feeling.  It has a light scent that is very pleasant.  What I liked about this products?:  A clarifying product that actually makes your skin feel soft not dried out.
Price $19

2. Boscia Enlivening Amino-AG Eye Treatment

This product has amino acids and the antioxidant jojoba leaf, Coix Seed and Vitamine E, Willowherb, and Jujube Fruit. Not familiar with most of these botanicals but, all in all, this product is supposed to help with hydrating the eye area, prevent signs of aging, reduce puffiness and dark circles, as well as help with cell renewal and smooth fine lines.  You only need a small dot of this translucent gel like eye treatment.  This bottle goes a long way.  The gel felt cool to me when applied. What I like about this product?:  I’ve been using these products for a little over 2 weeks.  I’ve been using the eye gel each morning and evening before bed. I feel that my eyes do look brighter and more rested. While I’m only 30 I do have some fine lines starting around my eyes. I will continue to use this product.  Price $38

3. Boscia Clear Complexion Treatment with Botanical Blast:  For problem skin

I’m a 30 year old who still breaks out like a teenager in my T-zone.  I’ve said it before and I wish I could stop saying it.  Until then, these types of products are for me. This products helps to “control oil, clear breakouts, and maintain a clear complexion.”

I have to tell you that I constantly, and I mean constantly, have at least a couple blemishes on my face. During that certain time in the month, it’s a lot worse in my t-zone. I used this product twice a day for a little over two weeks now.  I love, just like the clear complexion tonic, that it does not dry my face out AT ALL.  It actually felt good on my skin and didn’t burn even when I applied it to blemishes that….well…I just couldn’t leave alone.  I receive this product just in time to really put it to the test during that monthly time.  While I can’t say I was zit free the that whole time, I can honestly say that I saw a great reduction in the amount of blemishes I usually get at that time. So yea, I’d say it’s effective. Price $35

4.  Boscia Recharging Night Moisture

There are several botanical ingredients in this one including: Soybean to balance skin with hormonal changes, the antioxidant Jojoba leaf, and Willow herb.  I did not need to use a lot of this product . I used about  2 dime sized drops at a time. I dotted onto my cheeks, forehead, nose, and chin.  This moisturizer smooths in easily and feels great.  You get a slight hint of the soybean smell.

This moisturizer is supposed to help strengthen skin, diminish wrinkles, and promote new cell production.  It feels great on my skin.  One of my concerns, (given my teenage-like breakouts) is I’m always afraid a moisturizer will be too heavy and block my pores.  This did not.  It made my skin feel great. Price: $33

5. Boscia Lavender Blotting Linens

Last but certainly not least are the Lavender blotting linens.  I have to be honest. I’ve seen blotting linens before. I’ve never bought them. I guess I really didn’t understand the purpose of them. These blotting linens coming in a cool compact package that easily dispenses the linens.  The Lavender scent is beautiful.  I caught myself opening the pack sometimes just to smell it for a calming moment.

I tried them.  I used them mostly along my t-zone. With the humidity we’ve been experience as of late in PA, these came in handy.  I think this may have been another preventative measure in my decrease in breakouts with the Boscia products. I had no idea how much oil was actually on my face until I used one and looked at the little linen.  Eww!  There are 100 sheets in one of these packets so again, will last you a while.  Price: $10

Boscia Extras:

— Boscia’s website also has a Rewards Program.  Every dollars spent is a point.  Every 300 points is a $30 Rewards Certificate.

—You can get up to 3 free samples with every order and FREE shipping on orders over $45.

Want to try Boscia but a little hesitant with the prices? I understand. I was looking over the site and found this great kit, 1.2.3 Preservative-free Kit, that contains Oil Free Daily Hydration with SPF 15, the Recharging Night Moisture I reviewed in the same size, and a Purifying Cleansing Gel. The kit is $19 which is a great deal on Boscia considering the Recharging Night Moisture is $33 by itself.  And don’t forget to get your free samples!

Review summary:  While I wish the prices could be a little more affordable for more people, I feel the products do work.  Of all the products I tried, it’s hard to pick a favorite.  If they told me they were going to take all of them away from me except 1, hmm I’d probably ask to keep the Clear Complexion Treatment with Botanical Blast.

***I received the products reviewed above at no cost.  I did not receive any monetary compensation for this post.  I was under no obligation to give a positive review.  All opinions expressed are my own***
