Being a redhead, I burn so easily.  During the summer, I do use more lotions than other times, as my skin tries to soaks up all the extra moisture it can.  I was recently sent a new product from Vaseline.  It was the Spray and Go Total Moisture.   I will tell you, if I was buying in the store, I probably would have went for the Aloe one, but after trying the Total Moisture, I know that this one works great and I will be purchasing it again and again!  

The Spray and Go comes in the different lotions:
Total Moisture - with Pure Oat Extract 
Aloe Fresh - with Pure Aloe
Cocoa Radiant - with Pure Cocoa Butter

I have loved using it on me... and Broxton has enjoyed it on him as well!
The great thing about the spray is that you literally just spray it all over wherever you would normally put lotion on...  Then, you just rub it in and go.  This would be perfect for trips...  (Thinking BEACH!)
I do like that the spray top has where you can turn and lock it.  Allowing for no mess in your luggage! 
This lotion absorbs fast and goes on smelling fresh, moisturizing your skin... with NO GREASY remnants!!!

If you are thinking of what to get Mom for Mothers Day... 
Vaseline Spray and Go is the way to do it... Why not make a gift bag with all 3 in there?

Utmost Moisture - b.liv by Cellnique #MothersDay

FTC Compliant Review Policy:

If you are looking for a great product for Mother's Day...or just because... I have a great hydration mask to tell you about.    I was given the chance to review the UTMOST MOISTURE - immerse me Hydration Masque from b.liv by Cellnique.   I honestly do not think that I have ever tried a mask like this before and I was really impressed with it...  (Yes, I have tried mask's in the past, but they are normally the ones that you are supposed to let dry and harden on the face... this was so different.  It went on wet and came off still wet! )
The hydration mask seemed to be like super fine silk of some sort...   it was super soft, wet and very thin.  You open the package and as you spread it out to place on your face, you see that they do indeed have pre-cut holes for your eyes and nose.  I had a hard time lining the holes up to match my face, so I just went with it and stretched the holes to adjust to fit my face.  Marc did not have any issues on it fitting his face.    A
s much as I love all of you, I just do not think that I could post a picture of myself with this mask on.  I am glad that my sweet hubby did not mind, so that way you can see what I want to tell you.

Once the mask is placed on your face, you can go about your business.  It sticks to your face due to the moisture.  It is very soft and silky... and not greasy/sticky at all!  That was an added bonus to me.  I mean, who wants something stuck to their face that is all icky feeling?
Once it was time to take the mask off, Broxton was there to help.  It is easy to come off and there is excess moisture on your face.  When I used the mask on myself, I actually used the mask (once I took it off my face) and wiped my chest and neck area to use the moisture that was still remaining!
I really enjoyed using the mask.  It says you can use it daily.  I do not see myself doing that... just because I am yet to get a routine for my personal skincare... I believe I would use it more as a treat to relax.  (Until summer... and then I see myself using it more often as I burn easy!)

When it comes to dental hygiene, you can always try something new to see if it works for you.  
We love trying different toothpaste's and other products.. but one thing is for certain...
We love the dental flossers.   Do you know what I am talking about?  The dental floss that is on the plastic stick.  We have them and use them with Broxton now as well.  It is just easier getting in a little one's mouth with that versus our hands.
Marc absolutely loves the dental flossers and when I saw a new one (at least new to me) I knew we should try them out.  
Marc and I both were so excited over the Proxi-Plus!  Not only is it a flosser, it also has a brush at the end. (I loved that the brush part also has a little cover on it to keep it clean before use!)  
Product Features & Benefits: Proxi-Plus Flosser
  • Easily removes food and cleans between teeth, bridgework and braces
  • Removed plaque and stimulates gums
  • Easy reach with a curved bow
  • Daily use helps fight bad breath and gingivitis
  • Promotes healthier smile with regular use

    With the summer coming up, that might mean more ice cream and summer treats... So, keep these products handy and you will be all set to enjoy your treats...but know that your mouth is taken care of!!!

WWE Gives Back to the Community

I was not asked to post this.  This is not a sponsored post.. I just really love the WWE and wanted to share. Maybe bring an old fan back, make a few new fans, or at least share all they are doing with current fans.

If you have been around Jumpin Beans for some time.. You know that we love the WWE.
I love that they are a name that has been around for a good amount of time...  I love that they support the military... I love that they support Make a Wish Foundation... I love that they support Breast Cancer Awareness.  As you can see, WWE is not only about wrestling...  They are about community.

That being said, I wanted to share with you a few things that I have been made aware of, thanks to emails...

Make A Wish:
WWE Superstar John Cena celebrated World Wish Day with three wish kids that attended Monday Night Raw live in Columbus, OH.  Logan Parks of Stanton, Kentucky, Jacob Lawson of Hutchinson, Minnesota and Nicholas Santillo of Runnemede, New Jersey were personal guests of Cena, who brought all three children onstage to make them honorary WWE Superstars.  All three children “wished” to meet John Cena.



Breast Cancer Awareness Campaign:
As part of the campaign, WWE will urge fans to support moms by taking steps to educate themselves about the disease, participate in local Susan G. Komen Races in their communities, and donate to Komen, the world’s largest nonprofit funder of breast cancer research and community outreach programs. The campaign will be promoted through all of WWE’s assets, including TV broadcasts, live events, digital and social media.





Petroleum Jelly Alternative - Waxelene

I am all about trying new things..   Nothing that is crazy or dangerous though, I am a mom... but as far as products, yep... I will try most things...  
I was sent an email about Waxelene.  
It is a "petroleum jelly alternative" and I was eager to give it a go.  
It arrived for review.. and then the next thing you know,  my little 4 year old was coming in crying...   all scraped up and bruised from playing outside.   I was curious as to if this might help him heal faster.  
(He HATES when I put anything on him...  so I was curious as to how this would go over.)  
We cleaned up all the scrapes and then I applied a generous amount of Waxelene to each area.  He was not upset with me for doing so... and then I put long sleeves and pants on him.   The next morning, it was on the mend.  Now, I am not saying that this is a cure all.. but it made my little one better ... and that works for me!  There was no noticeable odor... and even with his eczema, we did not have any issues.  

See what they had to say about Waxelene:
Waxelene is the eco-friendly alternative to petroleum jelly. It has the same protective, waterproofing, moisturizing and soothing properties that doctors love, but contains no petroleum or hydrogenated oils. Waxelene’s ingredients include natural beeswax and oils like vitamin E and organic rosemary which soak in and nurture skin cells. Waxelene’s patent-pending aeration process gives it a silky smooth texture that won’t clog pores. Committed to the environment and healthy living, the makers of Waxelene endeavor to become more sustainable every day.From using natural and organic ingredients, to packaging in recyclable jars and tubes, to implementing energy-efficient practices, ,Waxelene is striving to do its part to prepare for a petroleum-free future.

If you are like me, your mom has everything she could ever need or want.  Not that there is anything wrong with that... Just that it makes shopping for Mothers Day more of thinking "outside the box" versus others that I shop for from time to time.  
One great idea for Mother's Day?  
A gift bag/basket full of random gifts that might make her happy.  One item?  
Rembrandt Deeply White Collection.   
A smile can tell you so much about someone...  At least some time... and with that, I am always drawn to a persons smile.  What could be better than a collection of dental products to make them white and shiny?  

Use the REMBRANDT® DEEPLY WHITE® Collection together to noticeably whiten teeth in two hours* and keep them white


The REMBRANDT® INTENSE STAIN® Collection removes and repels stains like coffee, wine and tobacco, and restores enamel by strengthening teeth

Remember, if you are looking for a great Mother's Day gift idea... Think about getting Rembrandt products to add for a great gift idea!

The Guilt Trip - Happy Mother's Day!!!!

Just in time for Mother's Day...  A  great new movie for you to watch WITH your mom!
We were recently sent the movie, Guilt Trip with Barbara Streisand and Seth Rogen.  I was excited to watch it and I was surprised when both my mom and dad watched it with me!  (My dad is hard to get to sit and watch a movie.. but he watched the whole thing!)
I will say that I loved the packaging of the Blu-Ray.  The mothers day wrapping of the box actually has it as a card.  You press the front and hear Barbara Streisand talking about buying you this movie as your gift!  Then, once you open it...  It opens to a card with a bouquet of flowers on it.  I thought it was a great marketing approach and my mom and I were both laughing!  

On to the movie.  Guilt Trip is a movie about a mother and son on a road trip across the country.  
Synopsis: 

The “hilarious and heartfelt” (Shawn Edwards, Fox-TV) story of one man’s cross-country road trip with his mother, THE GUILT TRIP hits the road on Blu-ray, DVD, Digital Download and On Demand April 30, 2013 from Paramount Home Media Distribution.   Screen legend Barbra Streisand and comic master Seth Rogen “are the perfect comedy duo” (Shawn Edwards, Fox-TV) in director Anne Fletcher’s (The Proposal) delightful and heartwarming comedy that is “packed with laugh-out-loud moments” (Meriah Doty, Yahoo! Movies).  As inventor Andy Brewster (Rogen) is about to embark on a road trip to sell his latest product, he feels compelled to invite his mother, Joyce (Streisand), along for the ride.  Across 3,000 miles of adventure and antics both Andy and Joyce discover that while they have their differences, they also have more in common than they ever realized.

I noticed I was laughing a lot more than my mom and dad... Maybe because as I watched it, I could totally see MY mom and MY BROTHER in some of the same scenes....  Dad and I had a good laugh at a few of them and yep, even mom was laughing out loud from time to time.   My parents are always ones to rate movies...   1-10, with 10 being the best...   About halfway through the movie, mom was rating it a 4 and dad a 5....   I was at a 7.  Then, Seth Rogen dropped the F BOMB and mom and dad immediately dropped it down a point...     Once the movie was  over, they both had it ranked around a 6...  but I had it around an 8.  I know people have different tastes, so it was nice to watch a movie with them and get their opinions as well.  
As much as I love my mom, I know I could never go on a road trip with her across the country!!!   We have done Mother / Daughter trips in the past... but not across the entire country.  That was what made this movie so funny to me...   CRAZY!!!    Guilt Trip had its funny moments...  and there were a couple times when it hit your heart a bit too.
Would I recommend this movie? For sure!!!!
I think it would be a great movie to watch with your mother (or the person that reminds you of your mother figure) this Mother's Day for a good laugh and great memories!!!! 

Run out and grab a copy of this movie... Make a great "spa basket" and enjoy the time with your mom!!!


Hope you have a Wonderful Mother's Day!!!!
