Touch’d Review and Giveaway

I wanted to share a new line of beauty products with you called Touch’d which launched yesterday. Touch’d bath and body was founded by Rachel Ferrucci. Rachel created the products when she couldn’t find what she was looking for in the stores.  She says, “one product specifically, the organic sugar scrub, was created when my daughter had eczema and the doctors were giving us medicated creams that seemed to be drying out her skin. I wanted to give my daughter relief without slopping medicated creams all over her delicate body. I researched and read every book on natural oils and how they can benefit our skin. I was successful in making a product that was 100% organic and alleviated her eczema.” Being a mom of a child with eczema myself,  I understand completely where she is coming from.

I had the pleasure of reviewing the “Moisture Myst” in the Tropical Paradise scent. The website says that the “convenient spray on moisturizer will revive and hydrate your skin with oils containing natural vitamins to penetrate rather than coat it. Moisture Myst contains no waxes, leaving silky smooth skin with none of the grease.” I love that the spray made my skin feel soft without feeling oily like a lot of other lotions do. I also love the floral smell of the myst which is one of six different scents that the products come in.

Rachel says that the myst is great to use right after a shower so your skin will soak it up. Another great use for the spray is as a moisturizer after too much time in the sun. She says if you get a sunburn and use Moisture Myst three times a day, you won’t peel.

Loving My New Keurig

I was given the opportunity to review a Keurig-Special Edition Brewing System in exchange for sharing my honest opinion about it with you all.

I have to tell you that I was super excited to try it out because of all the great reviews it had received. When it finally showed up on my doorstep the other day I just had to set it up and try it out right away.

Because I was busy with my two little guys, my 14 year old sister, Morgan, set it up for us. The brewer comes with step by step directions so it only took my sister about 10 minutes or so to set up.

Once the Keurig was setup we had to decide what we wanted to try first. The company generously sent me four boxes of their k-cups- two sampler coffee boxes, one box of teas, and one box of Timothy’s white hot chocolate. We both chose to try out the hot chocolate first.

Now for the review:

What I loved- I loved that the Keurig had a LCD screen that told me “ready” and “not ready”. It really made it easy to know when it was ready to use. I also loved the fact that there is no messing with coffee grounds and filters or hot chocolate powders. The Keurig uses K-cups and all you do is pop the K-Cup in and close the lid. There is nothing to open as the Keurig has an internal needle that pokes holes in the K-Cup and lets the water seep through.

What I would change- The only thing that I don’t love is that it doesn’t make cold drinks. If this Keurig made hot drinks AND cold drinks I would be head over heals in love! :)

Don’t you think this would make an awesome Mother’s Day gift? I would have shared with my mom but she already has her own :) More information about the Keurig brewing system and their other products can be found online here.
