Product Sampling

I've tried some new products in the last month or so and I wanted to let you know my thoughts about them.

Eukanbua has a dog food out that is supposed to help with your pet's dental health. 3D DentaDefense is the "secret weapon. I took a black light to Bobbi's teeth and gums and, quite frankly, wasn't surprised to see a lot of tartar buildup. Bobbi is a senior Yorkie who gobbles her food so fast that she generally doesn't chew before swallowing. Hence, the dry food I buy her doesn't get much of a chance to scrub her used-to-be pearly whites.

We have two large retrievers that have minimal tartar problems, though these were the dogs we allowed to try Eukanuba. Bobbi is grain-free and I couldn't find a completely grain-free blend in this brand. I didn't see a huge difference in their teeth after crunching on some Eukanuba, but I did notice a lot of energy returning to their aging bodies. Maybe if I had fed several bags to them I would have noticed more of a dental change.

A product I really do love is Cover Girl's blast flipstick. These lipsticks are a sort of two-in-one. Each flipstick is a duo of blendable colors. I love these because the color lasts and lasts, even after drinking a coffee in between church service and Sunday school!

Children's Advil (liquid) is one of the few fever reducing medications that Amanda will take. I know, I know. She should be learning to swallow pills at her age, but she hasn't done so yet without gagging. This medicine lasts for about 8 hours and is in a very painless form - a great tasting liquid. Within a half hour of taking Children's Advil, her fever was gone and she felt better. Since she's the one who had the fever seizure as a baby, I tend to watch her fevers closely yet.

Another product I like is Bona Hardwood Floor Cleaner. I only have one hallway with hardwood flooring, so I like to keep it in shape - shiny shape. This seems to be a good product that really delivers. I haven't found this in all of the stores around here, but I did find it at Home Depot and Wal-mart. I will keep some on hand. My children are good floor shiners.

* I received the above products in exchange for my honest opinion. Bona Hardwood Floor Cleaner and Children's Advil were sent my way by Eukanuba and Cover Girl were sent by Opinions expressed are my own. *
