Buddy Fruits Review

dino house (11 of 15)

My daughter loves doing everything for herself. We have become big fans of squeezable pouches but many on the market have preservatives and ingredients that are not natural.  Buddy Fruits is a wonderful way for her to be able to feed herself when we are out and on the go without having to compromise on nutrition.

Since 2006 has been on the forefront of squeezable pouches. They are dedicated to reinventing the way we eat fruits and offer healthier snack options.

Buddy Fruits only uses the flesh of the fruit. That makes a major impact on flavor and texture. I love their commitment to their products. Buddy Fruits is committed to keeping preservatives, colorings, genetic modifications, artificial flavorings, water and corn syrup out of every Buddy Fruits product. I think it is wonderful that Buddy Fruits also has nut, dairy and gluten free options available.

My son and daughter both love Buddy Fruits! Recently we were sent a variety pack of their squeezable pouches and I was very impressed with the variety of flavors and sizes. I go to the gym regularly and I always bring snacks for my daughter. It is very easy and convenient to throw a Buddy Fruits pouch in her bag just in case she gets hungry while I am at the gym. They do not need to be refrigerated before opening and are a healthy snack option without any utensils.

Buddy Fruits offers a wide variety of products including pure blended fruits, apple chips, pure fruit jiggle gel, fruit bites, smoothies, coconut milk and fruit and Superfruit. I love that each product is available in a variety of flavors. I would like it if the expanded their product line to include vegetables in addition to fruits. Some fruits can be more challenging to get or prepare and I appreciate how easy Buddy Fruits makes it to introduce my children to such a great variety of fruits.

“Real fruit, real fun, real easy!”

In Central Utah there is a mineral-rich salt deposit from an ancient dead sea that is the source of the ingredients of Redmond products. Redmond contain an abundance of trace minerals that can help restore minerial-deficiencies through osmosis.

They come in two varieties: Redmond Bath Salt and Redmond Bath Salt Plus. They are both loaded with over 60 trace minerals and help to improve circulation, restore minerals to the body and promote a restful nights sleep. The difference between the two Bath Salts is that the Redmond Bath Salt Plus contains a higher concentration of the minerals, which results in a darker color. The minerals will leave a residue in the bathtub but clean up very easily. I had the opportunity to review the Redmond Bath Salt Plus and really enjoyed soaking before going to bed. It’s a great product and I love that it is all-natural without any additives. I would recommend getting a larger size because the smaller 18 oz container is only enough for 4 baths.


is an acquired taste. There are no artificial ingredients or foaming agents and the toothpaste is actually a tan/brown color. It has a unique texture but is completely safe. It is extremely all-natural and was just too much of a change for my family. If natural toothpaste is something you are used to or if you are wanting to make the change, Earthpaste would be great for you. Don’t be surprised if it takes a while to adjust to the taste if you are new to natural toothpastes.

Redmond comes from a natural clay deposit from volcanic ash near Redmond Utah. Clay has long been used on cuts, burns, muscle aches, bites, bruises and can even been ingested for settling an upset stomach. It is full of minerals and can be used in many ways. My husband was very sore and applied the clay mixture to his thigh. He actually noticed his muscle cramps go away.

Redmond’s is amazing! A little bit really does go a long way! I had the opportunity to review their Organic Seasoning, Garlic and Onion salts and was extremely impressed with the quality and flavor. It is free of additives, chemicals and heat processing. Real Salt is available in a variety of sizes including packets, shakers and bulk quantities.

Redmond is a passionate company that is dedicated to its customers and is committed to preserving its natural products. They have really been a pleasure to work with and I love that they want to make natural products accessible and affordable.

Aimee’s Lotions ‘N’ Potions Review and Giveaway (Ends 9/2)

photo 4 copy 2

A few months ago I was watching an episode of Dr. Oz where they were talking about how important the things we put on our body being as important as the things we put in them. The said that the average woman put something like 28 chemicals on her face before leaving the house in the morning and that our skin absorbs these chemicals and they can build up as toxins in our bodies and cause problems over time. That really got me thinking about the products that I put on my face, especially my moisturizer, and I decided I wanted to make a change. I started researching companies that offer natural, chemical free skincare products and I am very excited to introduce you to !

Aimee’s mission is to create the purest and most natural skincare (how amazing does her skin look by the way). Her own medical experiences sparked her passion and got her started on a mission to a healthier lifestyle and made her very aware of what we put on and in our bodies.  She thinks of skincare as the diet for your body; it needs great vitamins, minerals, fatty acids and protein just like your body. She creates her own formulas of oils, butters and extracts to create her products. You wont find any scary, mysterious or hard to pronounce names on her ingredients list. She takes pride in her quality ingredients and is happy to explain the benefits of each ingredient.

Aimee offered to send me her and I have to say, I love it!

It is a light, non-greasy moisturizer that absorbs quickly. Often when I change my moisturizer I have a mini breakout as my skin transitions but that did not happen with this moisturizer. Most of the moisturizers that I have used in the past do not have a scent; the Light & Moisturizing Facial Cream has a very strong scent. It is very herbal and natural smelling because of the herbs and oils that are in the cream. The scent doesn’t last for long and while it was a big change initially I have grown to love it.

The Light & Moisturizing Facial Cream is rich in Vitamin’s A, B1, B2, D, E, & Beta Carotene, minerals, essential fatty acids, amino acids, ALA’s and protein. These ingredients work together to refine, renew and rejuvenate your skin cells while protecting your skin from damage. Your skin will feel more nourished and you will notice that your skin is softer. I love the difference that it is making in my skin and the fact that the ingredients are all natural.

Here are some other products from Aimee’s Lotions ‘n’ Potions that I am excited to try:

Tree Hut Body Care Review and Giveaway (Ends 4/23)


As my belly has grown with this pregnancy I have definitely noticed my skin getting dry and itchy.  I know it is a common ailment for pregnant mamas but not a fun one.  I need to note quickly that I am very sensitive to scents.  Certain smells trigger migraines for me I I have to be careful with the lotions I use.  I will be describing the smell of the products to help anyone who is might have the same issue as well as the product performance.

I was so happy to find my review items on my porch around the same time that

I was feeling the need for an extra moisturizing lotion to sooth my belly.  I opened the package and immediately slathered my baby bump with the Original Shea Body Butter.  It has a deep nutty fragrance and it is very thick (as body butter should be).  I have continued to use it day and night these past few weeks and I am happy to report that my belly is staying moisturized and I do not have that annoying itchy feeling.

I also received the Coconut Lime Sugar Scrub, Almond and Honey Lotion and Amazon Pequi Body Wash.  I really like the sweet almond honey scent of the lotion.  It is not overpowering and smells super yummy.  The lotion is a much lighter formula than the body butter so it is great to use on arms and legs.  For me the body butter is too thick to use all over my body, but great to use on areas that need extra moisture such as hands, feet, elbows, and pregnant bellies. 


I am new to sugar scrubs so I do not have a lot to compare the Coconut Lime Sugar Scrub to, but I really like how it gently exfoliates when I use it.  The smell reminds me of summer with the scent of coconut and a touch of lime.  It leaves my skin feeling soft and smooth.  Tree Hut has included Shea butter as well as other natural oils to moisturize

the skin while it exfoliates.  I have to say that I am getting a little addicted to the sugar scrub.

The light fresh scent of the Amazon Pequi Body Wash is great to wake you up in the morning.  It has a slight floral smell but very clean and fresh.  As with the other Tree Hut products the body wash is also infused with moisturizing ingredients so that it does not dry out the skin.

I have really enjoyed using my body care items and I  fully recommend them to our readers.

BUY IT:  You can get your hands on Tree Hut products through many local retailers such as Target, Ulta, Walmart, Kroger, Fred Meyer, and Harmon.  You can also order online through .

WIN IT: One lucky YGTB fan will win a gift pack of the same 4 products I reviewed!  Enter Below.

Good Luck! Thank you for entering our giveaways!

Potomac Products Health Line Vitamins Review



is a private label vitamin and nutritional supplements distributor.  They provide their customers with the best quality private label vitamins, dietary supplements and herbal supplements possible. Everything is 100% natural!


Potomac Products Health Line has a huge selection of for just about anything. Prenatal, weight loss , sleep aid, men’s health, women’s health, cholesterol.  I am a big believer in natural products and also vitamins. My grandmother and Mom have always been into vitamins and if something ails me they are always there with a suggestion or tip of something I can take.

I was very excited to give the Sleep Aid from the Potomac Product Health Line a try.   The Sleep Aid contains Magnesium Oxide to promote relaxation . This sleep aid helps you to fall asleep and stay asleep. I have a terrible time doing both. I’m a bit of  night owl. I could honestly stay up all night long, and then pay for it dearly the next day . I’m also a very restless sleeper. I  wake several times from a sound sleep its just terrible.  So, sometimes when I am overly tired I will take something to help me.  I found this Sleep Aid works well for me.  It did not leave me overly groggy the next day which is something I often find to be an issue with other over the counter remedies.  Plus it supports natural , healthy REM sleep.

Ironically enough my husband  had just told me ,”hey I’ve decided to be healthier so I am taking your vitamins.”  Now picture me frowning at him.  That same day my box from Potomac Health arrived and in it was a bottle of the Men’s Multivitamin.  The men’s multivitamin contains Zinc to promote sperm mobility and Niacin for heart health. It also helps to lower cholesterol and build a healthier immune system.  I happily handed it over to him with a smile and an “I got you covered J.”  J. seems to be taking the multivitamin with no issue. He prefers to take them in the evening as I also do.

How I organize and Keep track of my weekly vitamins.



Here is a friendly tip to help you organize.  If you take several different vitamins for your health and   need a way to keep them organized here is a suggestion. This is how I keep track of what I have taken and not each week.  Some of my pills I take every day while others I only take every other.  I put my weeks supply in this easy container and helps keep me on track.


I also received a bottle of the Vitamin B complex.  Vitamin B has several great benefits if you don’t know about it. Including reducing the risk of heart disease and aiding the cells in burning fat. I already currently take a Vitamin B, so I’m going to wait to open the Potomac. I imagine if it is like the rest of the Health Line I will be pleased.


I am thrilled to tell you that  all of the Potomac Products Health Line are  a very affordable price.  Which means a lot to this Mom on a budget. If you are looking for affordable vitamins, dietary or herbal supplements I encourage you to visit Potomac Health.
