Global Green USA Green School Makeover Competition Presented by Pureology

I am a green person. I am all for everything that supports eco balance and mother earth. I participate and do everything in my might for the cause. Hence I come across “Global Green USA Green School Makeover Competition Presented by Pureology” by Influenster.

What does this mean?

Influenster is holding this competition where we as Influensters are supposed to complete certain tasks to win products for ourselves and our schools.

My reason for participation is to raise awareness and if i win some goodies, then I am certainly not complaining.

Sustainability is important to Pureology. To improve student performance and reduce the carbon footprint, Pureology is offering a Green School Makeover to one Grand Prize Winner. You could win this for your child’s school when you enter the contest HERE.

Pureology believes that every child deserves a learning environment that’s safe, healthy, free of harmful toxins and optimal for learning. Unfortunately, many schools across the country are subjecting children to unhealthy classrooms with poor lighting and inefficient energy usage, which costs most schools more money than they spend on books and computers.  When a school goes green, children benefit – as well as the environment!

Its not just a competition, is education and awareness and positively influencing the young minds and their future. It is very important to me, thus, not just to take part, but to win it too.

Thank you influenster and Pureology for the opportunity.

The Many Uses of Ivory


I was happy and excited to see an Ivory bar soap in my Mom Vox Box. Its not a new product to me. In fact me and my family have been using Ivory bar soap and body wash since some time and we all love it.

I really like that Ivory bath bars and body washes are 99.94% natural and yet so budget friendly. I, as a mom and a concious human, try to use products that are nature friendly. But often I find that it affects my family budget big way. But with Ivory products, its different. They are cost effective, available every where and one can find money saving coupons every now and then.

As for the product itself, I have already told you that its 99.94% natural. Its unique formula does not strip my skin, but leavs it soft and moisturized. This feature of Ivory is very noticable especially during winter months. There are no added perfumes and the natural scent is mild, light and relaxing and not very lasting or overwhelming. To top it off, there are so many varieties available in both bar soaps and bodywashes that one can choose what best suits them.

I use the bar soap and body wash  as a face cleanser.  Having sensitive and aging skin, I am left with few options of what I can use on my face, and IVory is one of them that I can peacefully and fearlessly use as a face cleanser. I also use the bodywash to wash kids clothes and my own silk garments.

I give the bar soap to my kids to do some carving. It helps them in their imagination and skill and decorating their room too. I have even gifted these hand carved soaps. Kids have such fun having bath with them and there is a sense of confidence when such skills are appreciated appropriately.

I use the body wash in my hand wash refillable pumps and use them as hand wash too. By far its one of the most cost effective, nature friendly, multi tasking, flexible product I use.

I totally and strongly reccomend Ivory bar soaps and bodywashes.

Kiss your nails with KISS NAIL DRESS

Being a mom of 2 year old means a lot of mess and a limited choice of things you can do. I am glad that I do not need to compromise on doing my nails and can keep them up to the latest fashoion Thanks to Kiss nail strips. I have received it as a sample from the influenster love vox box in feb 2012.

These nail strips are competitively priced. There are a variety of eye catching designs and colors which cater to needs of all occasions, ages, needs etc.

They are mess free. I mean totally. With 28 strips in each package, you can cut up your extras to create designs that can be used on top of polished or artificial nails. Nail Dress doesn’t dry out the way other polish strips can, so you can save them to use on your next DIY mani. A nail design booklet is included in each package, just in case you need a little inspiration.

As I said I am a mom, so I am doing something or the other with my hands all the time. Its only fair to say that they did not last 10 days on my hands, but yes almost 10 days on my toes. To be exact, they lasted 5 days on my hands and about 7 days on my toes. Given the price, I will not say that is bad. Infact I am very happy and why would not I be? Those designes got me so many compliments.  At this point I have to confess that I do not have very long and beautiful nails. Yes, I have short nails and I cut them for hygene resons too. The wonderful part is, most designs from KISS nail dress suit my short nails and as I said before, got me a lot of compliments.

For it to long laster, I strongly recommend a top coat.

KISS Nail Dress are so appropriately named. They dress your nails so well that you want to Kiss them every time you see ’em.

Where to Buy

Nail Dress’ suggested retail is $6.99 and is available in all major drug chains and mass retailers like WalMart, CVS and Walgreens.

True Natural Sweetener, Truvia.

Its so co-incidental that I received this product in my Influenster Love Vox Box in Feb 2012, when I was cutting down on my sugar, carbs and fat in an ever failing attempt to lose those last 5 pounds. The reason is the less I took sugar, the more my body craved for it. Now, we all know the truth. Many artificial sweeteners are full of crazy stuff that are carcinogenic, or root cause of some sort of incomprehensible body malfunction. Yes i want to lose weight, Yes I want to reduce sweet intake but NO not at the cost of my health or taste.

So here comes Truvia, an all natural, zero calorie sweetner.

Truvía® natural sweetener is the first natural, great-tasting, zero-calorie sweetener born from the leaves of the stevia plant. NO AFTER TASTE.

o   One packet of Truvía® natural sweetener provides the same sweetness as two teaspoons of sugar.

o   Truvía® natural sweetener is refreshingly uncomplicated.  Add it to coffee and tea.  Sprinkle it on fruit and cereal. Use it recipies.

o   Truvía® natural sweetener is a great alternative for people with diabetes. It is also kosher certified.

Where to Buy

Truvía® natural sweetener is available nationally at most major retailers and in package sizes of 40-count, 80-count, 140-count and a spoonable jar.  Find a store here.
