Carmex Click Sticks Prize Pack Review + Giveaway

Where do you turn for lip balm these days?  There are so many different brands out there, it can be hard to choose!  I've discovered a summery fun new selection - Carmex Click Sticks, which are available in Lime Twist and Vanilla!

I've always used regular (and sometimes cherry flavored) Carmex on my lips when I need some serious help from lip balm - it is my go-to tube in the winter months when my lips are more prone to be chapped.  I'm so excited that this year I'll have such yummy choices.

 When I first tried out the new Click Sticks, I still got an overwhelming taste of original Carmex. This isn't necessarily a bad thing - I just sometimes think Carmex smells a little more medicinal than other lip balms (that could just be me!). However, after 2-3 days of using Carmex Lime Twist exclusively, I am addicted. I use it all the time, even when my lips aren't really dry - just to have such a yummy scent on my lips!

I have the Lime Twist in my pocket at all times, and the Vanilla as a back-up in my diaper bag.


Keep an eye on the Carmex Facebook page for coupons and special offers.  Just a few days ago they offered a hot $.50/1 Carmex Click Sticks coupon (unfortunately it's already gone). 

The vanilla is equally delightful.  I've been addicted to lip balm for most of my life, and these are going in my top favorites.

When Carmex sent me the Click Sticks to sample, they also included a cool foldable picnic blanket (it velcros closed), and a sample of their new Moisture Plus Ultra Hydrating Lip Balm.  The Moisture Plus lip balm is awesome.  I mentioned before that I have always used Carmex whenever I have super dry lips, but I think I'm going to use this one all the time so that my lips never get dry.  Moisture Plus comes in several varieties - mine is clear with just a hint of shine, but it's also available with a tint of lip color, too!  Something that adds moisture to my lips and gives me color (thus eliminating the need for a separate tube of lipstick)?  Yes, please!

 Giveaway

Red Baron Pan Pizza Review + Giveaway



Red Baron pizzas have always been a staple of the frozen food aisle, but how do they compare with delivery pizzas? That is the question that Howie Mandel is out to answer in a new set of online videos where he delivers Red Baron pan pizzas to real families. So, which pizza is the "Real Deal?" Red Baron - of course!





Hubby and I were given the chance to sample one of Red Baron's new pan pizzas along with a set of nifty Red Baron accessories (two oven mitts, pizza cutter, pizza server, Red Baron plates and napkins) - we thought this was a spectacular way to have an at-home date night!


We followed the instructions on the box to bake our pepperoni pizza (though we actually removed half of the pepperonis because I prefer cheese). The baking time is 25-28 minutes - which is faster than calling for delivery and waiting for your order to show up.  Plus when cooking at home, you know your food will be hot when it's dinnertime - why risk getting a cold pizza from delivery?  The Red Baron Pan Pizza comes in its own pizza pan and you just throw them both in the oven.  Super simple, just how I like it!


I have loved Red Baron for years, but this was the first chance I've had to sample the Pan Pizza style.  I loved it!  The crust is perfectly crunchy, in contrast with the cheesy, soft goodness of the center.  The baking tray seemed shallow to me, so I was surprised at how thick it turned out! 


Overall, we think it is a winner.  Delicious, easy to prepare - Red Baron Pan Pizza is a quick, easy and low-cost alternative to delivery pizza - best of all, you can cook it right at home, with no delivery charge!

Giveaway

Five My Kansas City Mommy readers will win a Red Baron Pizza Prize Pack (Coupon for a Free Pizza, Two Oven Mitts, Pizza Cutter, Pizza Server, Red Baron Plates & Napkins)! This giveaway will end on September 5 at 11:59 PM Central time.

Lysol® No-Hands Soap Dispenser & Disinfecting Wipes Review + Giveaway


Summer is almost over and there is a hint of a fall breeze in the air. Do you know what that means? Back to school! But what coems along with the excitement of back-to-school? Germs! Lysol® is committed to helping you keep your kiddos safe from the germ-breeding ground that is school. Lysol® has several great products to aid you in the battle against germs. Be sure to check out the Lysol® Facebook page for a chance to win an "automatic" kitchen set from Whirlpool® (fridge, dishwasher and stove!) in the Lysol® No-Touch® Stainless Kitchen Sweepstakes!

First, the Lysol® Dual Action Disinfecting Wipes which have two sides that "go beyond ordinary wipes." One side of the wipe is made for everyday typical use while the other side has been designed for tougher situations. Like other Lysol® products, these Dual Action Disinfecting Wipes clean 99.9% of germs. They are very convenient to use and work almost anywhere in the house.

I use Lysol® Disinfecting Wipes in my house all.the.time.  For some reaosn, it seems to be 300x easier to just get out a wipe than to spray a cleaner and wipe it down with a paper towel.  I don't know what I would do without these disinfecting wipes - especially now that my kiddo is on the move and I am more determined to keep everything sanitized!

Lysol® has also released a really nifty new gadget: a No-Hands Soap Dispenser. Automatic soap dispensers are no longer confined to public restrooms!  As with most new gadgets, I assumed that it would be very difficult to put together and use, but that was not the case. The Lysol® No-Hands Soap Dispenser is just a one-piece unit (and includes batteries!). You just drop in the soap container and you are good to go.  It's super easy to set up - and I think it is great for hubby and I.  I'm not sure how I will feel when the little guy is old enough to amuse himself by waving his hand in front of the dispenser and watching soap pile up on the counter.  :)

Giveaway

One My Kansas City Mommy will win a Lysol® No-Hands Soap Dispenser and package of Lysol® Dual Action Disinfecting Wipes! This giveaway will end on September 6 at 11:59 PM Central time.

Rizzoli & Isles: The Complete First Season is out on DVD, so if you missed watching the season live last year, you can catch up now!

Based on characters created by best-selling crime novelist Tess Gerritsen, Rizzoli and Isles stars Angie Harmon as Jane Rizzoli, a tough-as-nails Boston police detective, and Sasha Alexander as Maura Isles, a smart, impeccably dressed medical examiner from a privileged background. Despite being complete opposites, the two women share an offbeat chemistry and strong working relationship that has helped them bust some of Boston's most notorious criminals.

Jane and Maura will take on a number of intriguing cases this season, including a murder carried out during a Revolutionary War re-enactment, a killing in a professional baseball team's locker room, a complicated case involving a surrogate mother and a case involving the Salem witch trials. Jane will also face the return of serial killer Charles Hoyt (Michael Massee), who takes a special joy in tormenting her.

Among the guest stars lined up for the second season are Ernie Hudson (Oz, Ghostbusters),  Matthew Del Negro (United States of Tara, Parenthood), and Bill O'Reilly (The O'Reilly Factor). The show airs Mondays at 10/9c on TNT.  You can also find Rizzoli and Isles: The Complete First Season on Amazon.
