Listerine Naturals Mouthwash Review

I received a free bottle of Listerine Naturals Mouthwash to review as part of a Crowdtap Sample Share.

As you can see from the bottle,there are no artificial colors added to this mouthwash. There is no added sweeteners like sorbitol to this product.
However,don't let this fool you. This isn't to be confused with Listerine's other product Listerine Zero. Listerine Naturals has the same intense feeling you get from using regular Listerine but without the additives. It reminds me of Cool Mint Listerine but without the added color and extra ingredients.
So far,I've been using it twice a day after brushing in the morning and at night. It seems to be cutting down on plaque and doesn't leave a blue/green tint to your teeth like some mouth washes can. There are also two varieties of this mouth wash. One with fluoride and one without. This one doesn't contain fluoride.
I'm happy with the results and will continue to use this product.

Train Bulletproof Picasso Album Review

This is my second review on an album and I must say I'm really excited about this one! This review is on Train's 7th Studio Release Bulletproof Picasso.

I love Train's music because it is so uplifting and their songs are so inspiring and diverse. I feel that the band's music speaks to all people. Their older albums and this new album is proof of that.
I would have to say that Angel In Blue Jeans is one of my favorites from this album. Although I also love Bulletproof Picasso.

The release date is September 5th. However you can preorder it through Itunes and Amazon's websites.

Truvia Lemonade Stand via Crowdtap

I was one of the lucky folks that received a free Truvia Lemonade Stand Kit from Crowdtap.
My 13 year old daughter helped me create this cute sign:

Enclosed with the kit were 4 pairs of sunglasses,a 10 dollar gift card code to buy supplies,a bag of Truvia baking blend,plastic cups and a jar of spoonable Truvia crystals.

As you can see from the photo,I chose to bake chocolate chip cookies to go with the Lemonade. I just followed the recipe on the back of chocolate chips I had and replaced the sugar amounts with one 1 cup of Truvia. The baking blend bag is really cool because you can just pour it out right into your cup for easy measuring with the neat little twist off spout that it has.

A nice thing about the new Truvia Scoopable Jar is that there are no packets to deal with. You can just measure it out by the teaspoon. It has a flip top lid for easy dispensing. Really nice packaging with both products.

For the Lemonade I used one cup of Truvia in place of sugar.
