My favorite product that was included is the Colgate Optic White System. I love the toothbrush design; it gets into all the little nooks and crannies. The tongue cleaner is nice too. The toothpaste and mouthwash have a fresh minty flavor that leaves my mouth feeling nice and clean. The mouthwash did feel a little strange while it was doing its powerful whitening thing and I felt like it was difficult to spit it all out when I was finished. But I suppose that's a small price to pay for whiter teeth in days! Yes, days. I have been using this trio for less than a week and my teeth are already noticeable whiter.
Another product I really loved was the Vaseline Spray and Go Lotion. I'm not usually a fan of scented lotion so I first thought that I was going to hate it strictly because it smelled. It turned out to have a light pleasant scent that I actually like. I must say I am a huge fan of spray-on lotion. With two little kids its hard to find much "me time" so my showers are generally rushed. Many days I skip lotion all together in the rush of things. Vaseline Spray and Go Lotion is a breeze to apply. In a matter of seconds you can lotion your entire body and there is no waiting period for it to dry so you can get dressed right away too.
The Sugar 'N Spice VoxBox also included belVita Breakfast Biscuits were were delicious. My daughter got a hold of them and ate half. She even asked me to buy more, which I will be doing. Aside from tasting great I love that they are free of high-fructose corn syrup, partially hydrogenated oils, and artificial flavors and sweeteners. They have 18-20 grams of whole grain to give you energy to start your day. These are perfect for busy mornings when you still want to eat a healthy breakfast.
Dickenson's Witch Hazel Oil Controlling Towelettes were also in the box. I have only been using those for a few days as well but so far I can say that it leaves my soft and clean. They would also be convenient for traveling or to throw in your gym bag.
The final product I get to tell you about is Nectresse Sweetener. I tried this in my coffee and I was pretty happy with it. It didn't taste fake or leave a funky after taste in my mouth. I like that it is a natural sweetener derived from monk fruit. There are enough artificial sweeteners in the foods I eat and I know I'm getting more than I would like even though I have been trying to limit them.

The way she refers to her symptoms is so unbelievably cute. I have to force myself not to laugh. For instance, she came up to me yesterday morning and asked me sadly why her eyes were sweaty.
And I'm sure it is just me but she looks adorable when she is cute. Her face all red and puffy, eyes swollen half shut. Don't get me wrong, it breaks by heart to see her like that because I know she feels awful, but she is still cute. Oh, a mother's love.
She also was drinking Traditional Medicinals Just for Kids Organic Cold Care Tea. She looked so grown up sipping on warm tea. I hope it helps her recover a little quicker. If nothing else, I would like to think the tea was soothing. I know when I have a sore throat or cold drinking tea helps me feel better.
For dinner tonight I made Chicken & Dumpling soup. I wish I could share the recipe with you all but it is an old family recipe and I actually know how much of anything I put into it. I just add ingredients to the dumpling dough until it feels right and shake in seasonings until the broth tastes right. I started it at 9:00 this morning and let it simmer on the stove all day long. Monster loves my dumplings so it was my way of getting her to eat chicken noodle soup. I'm hoping that between the tea, soup, and extra hugs and kisses she will have a quick, medicine free, recovery.
