Looking for a cool addition to the baby’s nursery? A way to help your whole family breathe a bit easier and healthier during the long days of winter?

Check this out–Purely Products has released a Healthy Night Light. This is an air purifier inside a night light…basically an LED light with a built in ionizer. The light has an energy efficient long life LED 35,000 hours and cleans the air even when the light is off–it is an automatic on-off light (so you don’t have to do a thing!) Also, the light is cool to the touch an important aspect to me with my young child.

Health Benefits
  • Built-in ionizer emits refreshing negative ions
  • Cleans the air, controlling pet dander, pollen, dust mites, mold spores, smoke & other allergens
  • Negative ions have been shown to increase levels of serotonin, delivering more oxygen to the brain
  • Great for people with asthma, allergies & pet dander issues

My husband commented that he thinks we have been sleeping a bit easier since we got this in December…with our cat and dog and the fact that I cannot keep up with the dust around here, I figure using this healthy night light in our bedroom is a simple, beneficial little addition. I have it placed near my youngest daughter’s bed and my only complaint is that I didn’t get it in pink! I have a few other Purely Products and I find their items really fascinating–I especially like my handy-dandy germ killing pocket purifier.

The Healthy Night Light comes in cream, pink and blue and can be used anywhere you’d want some low-level light at night: nurseries, children’s bedrooms, seniors living spaces…

There is also a two year warranty. The Healthy Night Light single pack is $19.95, or purchase 2 for $29.95–you can even mix and match your colors.

You can visit the website at Purely Products and interact with Purely Products on Facebook and Twitter.

AND…I get to give one away to a lucky winner!

I want to make this a quick turn around contest as I am late posting this already (I know, I’m usually so perfect. No laughing!) Seriously, I think this is an ingenious product and I would love to have one of my readers win it. So, lets make this simple.

To enter, go “like” Purely Products on Facebook. Come back here and tell me that you did for your entry. If you feel chatty, also tell me what color you’d get:)

I will draw a winner on 1/10/11 (my son’s birthday!!) Good luck.

“This is a MamaBuzz review. The product was provided by Purely Products for this review.”

Sponsored by Tomoson.comI have always adored putting my hair up. I love the look of up-dos and just feel more put together and more comfortable with my hair up. I enjoy getting new hair items. Lately, though, I’d been doing the lazy updo—a quick twist into a claw type thing or a bun using one of my daughter’s bands. How sad is that?

When I saw a photo of the Flexi8, I was curious about it. They look very attractive and seemed to have tons of styles and sizes. I thought if they worked, they would also make nice little gifts for my girls…

The Flexi 8 was invented by a husband and wife team and on their site they describe them as:

a completely unique, flexible barrette that holds thick, thin, curly, straight, fine and coarse hair. The Flexi 8 comes in a variety of sizes and hundreds of ever changing styles. Flexi 8 uses an ingenious patented locking mechanism to secure it in your hair. It’s such an attractive and unique accessory for your hair, once you try the Flexi 8, LOOK OUT! (you’re in love).

They were right. I really like these. These give me a dressy, delicate looking style, while the Flexi8 is sturdy enough to keep my hair in place all day. I like the flexibility—the design does not look flexible, but it is (I guess that’s the Flexi part…) It does not hurt my head and they come in beautiful designs. I love the silver type I received, but with my red hair, I’m looking to buy a few in gold—like this one:


Or this one:


They have some beautiful ideas for hair styles with the Flexi8 page. The Flexi8 comes in 6 sizes, and you will want to check out the sizing charts to get the correct size for your hair type and your style.

The Terralina Ultimate Collection.

One word to describe Terralina products? The word would be soothing. Heavenly, even.

I am a redhead with ultra sensitive skin. If I am not careful, I can have flare-ups of rosacea, even break outs. I have the type of skin that will often hurt, sting…burn when I use skincare products. I learned a long time ago to stick with one particular product.

As I began to learn more about natural options, I became more and more concerned about what was IN my product. I knew my skin became sore and irritated by scents and heavy lotions, but I did not know too much about what WAS good for my skin.

Enter Terralina.

The founders of Terralina originally created their company while looking for ways for pregnant moms to be good to their skin, believing that:

“What goes onto your skin, goes into your body”

Moms are so smart.

This quest for healthier options led to the Terralina line of skincare products. With ingredients like olive and vitamin E, Terralina is naturally formulated to be antioxidant rich, without harmful ingredients (like parabens, PEGs, silicone, mineral oils, ethoxylates, glycols, acrylates, or artificial fragrance). I found it really interesting to look through their Natural Beauty Ingredient Glossary.

I received The Terralina Ultimate Collection for review and I have been using this for a little over a month.

As someone with rosacea, I am not supposed to use exfoliators in general. But every once in a while, I just really want to exfoliate! So, when I first received my Terralina, the exfoliant was the first product I looked at. I tried a teeny bit and absolutely loved the light granules. The scent was also light. I went ahead and used it and felt so much smoother and just cleaner. After several weeks of use, my pores are smaller, my face is clearer and my skin is so soft.

I try to use all the other products just at night, such as the facial cleanser and toner. They are so pleasant, I find myself drawn to them in the morning as well—the textures and scents are both relaxing and refreshing and do not dry out my skin at all.

I especially love the facial moisturizer. The moisturizer contains olive oil and white tea and with my fair and dry skin, my moisturizer is the most important part of my beauty routine. Terralina’s facial moisturizer has a whipped texture that just smooths into my skin with a light fragrance. My skin feels so hydrated and supple. The body lotion has a similar effect on my skin and using the body lotion is such a treat on my shaved legs.

I felt like my skin felt and looked better. And, I feel good that I am using more natural products. But the best thing? One morning my husband asked:

“What are you doing differently? Your skin looks great—it feels great, too.”

Who knew the body lotion could be so sexy!

You can buy Terralina online. Right now they have a buy 1 get 1 free sale and free shipping on orders over $30. You can also use coupon code MAMABUZZ10 for 10% off your total order.

And….Thanks to Terralina, I get to giveaway one Terralina Ultimate Collection!

I received the Terralina Ultimate Collection from Terralina LLC through MamaBuzz for the purpose of review. I have given my honest opinion.

This is adorable! My nephew is already six months…how did THAT happen? So, he is too old or I’d enter that cute little bundle. I do know of one baby being born this December…so if you read this–you may want to enter the contest.

Although…sorry…money cannot really buy sleep. See the email I got below for details, and good luck 🙂
