Eucerin Review & Giveaway!

Calming Creme Tube 8ozThere are very few body lotions that help my skin get through the very dry seasons we have here in Southern California. However, I’ve learned over the years that I can rely on Eucerin. Eucerin has been my go-to body lotion for many years so, needless to say, I was delighted when I was recently asked to review Eucerin’s Calming Creme and Calming Body Wash.

Over the past week, I have used both products twice a day. The Calming Body Wash, which is made of natural omega oils, helps leave my skin feeling much more silky and smooth after a shower. The product is fragrance-free, which the Dude appreciates (he helped me review these items), and is safe for very sensitive skin and children. The Eucerin Calming Creme, which is made of oatmeal and glycerin, is one of the best body lotions I’ve tried. This unscented lotion goes on easily and without any residue. It feels luxurious on my skin and I’ve noticed that I don’t need to reapply lotion as much throughout dry days. This product is also safe enough for those with sensitive skin and for children ages 2 and up.

I’ve been incredibly impressed with both Eucerin products, so I’m thrilled to be able to share these products with one lucky reader.CalmingWash

Sharper Image Literati E-Reader: Review & Give-Away!


(entry for the Literati giveaway is now closed)

I have been waiting to get an e-reader ever since I first learned of their existence. However, I really didn’t want to spend money on an expensive e-reader that didn’t have color. So I waited.

And waited.

Until now…

The new Literati e-reader by Sharper Image is here. And it’s in color!

Why do I care so much about color? Because I want to read my magazines in color. I want to see the pictures in my cookbooks in color.  But, most importantly, I want to read my son’s favorite children’s books with him in color. Most e-readers are black and white because they use e-ink technology, which also means there is no back-lighting. The Sharper Image Literati uses a back-lit LCD screen, which not only means it can display color content but that you can also read in the dark.  There will be no need for a book-light! This is good news for any late-night readers that don’t want to disturb their partner while they sleep (*raises hand*).

I like my gadgets to not only work well, but to be stylish and easy to carry around. The Literati is sleek and small enough to throw into my purse. What I also love is that the Literati comes with a simple, but effective, free case. I always hate buying an expensive gadget and then have to go out and buy a separate case to protect it.

The Literati is also simple and easy to use. Unlike other e-readers that are really more like tablet computers, this one seems purposely simple. What that means is that when you turn it on, you get a bookshelf.  Period.  You don’t get a set of icons and unnecessary features. Another bonus is that this device synchronizes with your other devices. As described in the 4th video on this page , if you’re reading a book on your Literati and stop on page 20 you can start reading on your smart-phone right where you left off. (continues…)
