Dial Sugar Cane Husk Scrub Giveaway

*The Dial Brand provided me with a sample of Dial Sugar Cane Husk Scrub Hand Soap in exchange for a product review. However, all opinions expressed here are my own.


Dial has introduced a new Hand Soap to their Dial Boutique Collection Hand Soap line.  This time its Sugar Cane scented and it has gentle Micro-Scrubbers to clean deep and moisturize your skin. I love the way the Micro-Scrubbers feel on your skin. It makes you feel like your skin is getting a nice deep clean. Its perfect for cleaning up grimy dirty hands. Especially little dirty hands.

I remember growing up as a kid using Dial in the house.  All those great scents they used were so much fun. Sometimes you would wash your hands just to smell the soap. Yep, that was me. So when they sent me their Sugar Cane Husk Scrub Hand Soap I was jazzed. Not only was it Dial Hand Soap but it was Sugar Cane scented which is one of my favorite scents. I washed my hands 3 times in  a row just so I could smell it. Its a great scent for men or women. It is not a perfumey smell at all and it is not overwhelming. They have updated the bottle from their rounder version previously. I really like the shape it is definitely more modern.

Dial Miracle Oil restoring Body Wash

 *The Dial Brand provided me with a sample of Dial Miracle Oil Body Wash in exchange for a product review. However, all the opinions expressed here are my own.

Dial Miracle Oil containing Marula Oil

The best thing about  Dial is that they always makes gentle products that I can use on my sensitive skin. I also love the way the product smells. This one is no different.

Oil has long been a part of skincare rituals across the globe. For centuries it has been used to soothe, soften and moisturize skin. So it makes sense to have your body wash contain oil.  The Dial Miracle Oil Body Wash contains an oil that has been used for years and is used in luxury skincare products.

 This oil is called Marula oil which is extracted from the nuts of the Marula tree. I was unfamiliar with this oil until I tried this body wash. When I received the box I loved the look and the color of this particular Body Wash. Super vibrant to add to my shower.

If you have dry skin like I do then using a body wash with oil infused in it can moisturize your skin. After using this in the shower I can say that it doesn't leave any oily or greasy residue left over after you wash it off. In fact it is not oily in any way at all. It may contain Marula Oil but there is nothing oily about it. Its great for both skin types. It is gentle enough for my family, including the kids.




Have you seen this product at the store yet ? If so let me know below. If you haven't already picked some up go ahead and enter below with your info and I will select 3 of you to win a coupon mailed to your home. Us addresses only please.

Silicone Heat Resistant Cooking Glove Review

I was provided a sample in order to facilitate this review all opinions are my own.


With all the baking I have been doing you would think I would be up on all the fancy gadgets but I'm not. So I decided that I am going to try to get a few things to make my baking life easier. After trying out new whisks I decided to try out these SafeTGloves Silicone Heat Resistant Cooking Gloves.

First of all they will fit small hands like my own and large hands. They fit nicely and aren't too loose to cause any kind of grip issues. You can't drop them by accident, they stay on your hands. I have burned myself twice on the oven recently. Once from a cookie pan that slid and I stopped it using my hand. Not smart but it was an automatic reaction. I ended up with a burn 2 inches long on my finger. Had I been wearing these gloves it wouldn't have been an issue at all. It would have been caught by my finger but protected by the SafeTGloves.

Safe up to 425 these gloves will provide your hands with protection. If you dropped a spoon in boiling water and need to fish it out using these gloves will help protect you from burns. I know I have had to try and fish out a few utensils from boiling water before.

Now if you are a neat freak and don't want to use your hands you can use these to cut meat or to pull pork or chicken. I know myself that I don't like to wash the grease off my hands because it takes forever to wash it off. That way you don't have to grease up your hands at all. You can remove them wash them and use them again.

My favorite part is that the little silicone nubbies are little hearts, or what I think look like hearts. It makes me like them even more. But whatever they are they help you hold onto whatever pan or dish you are cooking. These gloves are also FDA approved and BPA free so you know they are safe for handling food for the entire family.

At the end of the gloves is a small hole that you can use to hang on a hook or to put string to hang, whichever you like. I love mine and will be using them when I am baking so I don't get anymore burns.

 You can find these awesome Cooking Gloves HERE.

Danish Dough Whisk Review

I was provided a sample of the Danish Dough Whisk by Kitchen Simple in order to facilitate this review. All opinions are my own.






 I have been doing a ton of baking lately. And starting out as a beginner baker means there are always new things I'm coming across that I am not familiar with. I have honestly never heard of a Danish Dough whisk. But as soon as I saw the design I was intrigued and knew that this might be what I was looking for.

Danish Dough Whisk by Kitchen Simple

I have been making all kinds of dough from bread to pastry. Using a traditional whisk is impossible. The insides fill up with the dough. The whisk itself bends because it really isn't built to mix dough. But this handy little Dough Whisk is perfect for doing just that. The handle is long and sturdy. You can get a nice strong grip on it for mixing dough. By the unique design it basically melts right through the dough in order to mix it up. I typically use a silicone spatula with a long handle to mix my bread doughs, but using this whisk it took less time. It was also really easy to sift my dry ingredients before blending with wet ingredients.

Genius Design
Despite the design it actually washes off very easily when rinsed. Didn't take me but 15 seconds to completely rinse off all dough and then a quick wash and dry. It was actually much easier than I had expected. For what you get this secret weapon is perfect for any baker from beginner to advanced. If they haven't heard of it yet pick one up I promise that they will love it. Since I have had it I have already used it to make 2 birthday cakes for the girls, a test cake, cookies, and brownies. It also works great for whipping up frosting.  I've used it every time I have baked since I have gotten it.

Have you heard of a Danish Dough Whisk? Apparently I have been living under a rock and haven't ever heard of it so if you live under a rock too let me know.

You can find it HERE

48 Premium Chalkboard Labels by KANVAS Review

I was provided a sample in order to facilitate this review but all opinions are my own. 





I had never heard of Chalkboard labels. I had heard of Chalkboard paint before but not labels. My niece is getting married and was thinking of doing shot glasses with chalk hearts on them. So I started looking into how we could do this. That was when I started finding out about Chalkboard labels!

KANVAS sent me a set of 48 labels. These are a great alternative to using messy and sometimes unreliable Chalkboard paint. Not to mention that the time you would save. I am really jazzed the set came with 48 because this means you have plenty to play around with. Not that it matters if  you make mistakes you can  just wet your rag and wipe off. Then take your pen and start over! 

I used a thick tip chalk pen. The pen I used is more for large chalkboards where you write the days menu on it. For these I would recommend a Fine Tip. Although I think my words came out just fine and acceptable.



There are a million uses for these from gifts to containers. You can also write yourself a quote and stick it on the bathroom mirror. I chose the quote "Hang In There".

 I took a mason jar and filled it with Dead Sea Salts put a label on it including instructions on how to use the salts on the back side. The jar cost me a $1 and would make a cute gift for many occasions.

If you make a mistake you can easily remove the sticker from the jar and restick. So these are reusable as long as the surface remains debris free. Great value for so many labels. The shapes are great and give you  many options to choose from. I could see this being valuable in a classroom where you need to change names on a regular basis.
