Getting Clean w/ Provacare Feminine Foaming Wash! (Review & Giveaway)


As women, we tend to have a lot of up keep when it comes to how we look. I know with being a mom that works from home, I sometimes can slack when it comes to the makeup department, even though I absolutely love getting dolled up. It doesn't happen to often. I do however make sure that when it comes to my personal hygiene I use products that not only keeps me smelling and feeling refreshed, but products that are affordable and products that actually work.

I was sent a few bottles of ProVacare, a feminine cleansing foaming wash that can be used as part of your daily routine to keep good hygiene. It helps prevent irritation and odor and contributes to a healthy vaginal balance, especially during menstruation, during pregnancy, while treating a vaginal infection and when used after intercourse.



This seemed pretty perfect for me considering I'm nine months pregnant. I'm due really soon so I've been using this over the last week and will continue to use it after the baby is here to help keep that area clean. I've already put a bottle of ProVacare in my overnight bag so that I don't forget to use it while staying at the hospital.

I love that it's a foam soap. This is perfect because it can be used without a cloth or sponge and it makes it easier to use if you're using this on the go. If you are using this while camping or a place where you don't have time to shower, to use all you have to do is apply directly and wipe with a moistened towel. It's unscented and hypoallergenic so any woman can use it. I also love that it's made with witch hazel water and natural Aloe which helps soothe sensitive skin for those of us who may have it.

Provacare Feminine Foaming wash can be purchased at most retailers and retails for around $6.99. You can find out more abour ProVacare Feminine Foaming Wash by checking them out on their website www.provacare.ca.

GIVEAWAY:
We have teamed up with Provacare to provide one lucky Just Us Girls CANADIAN reader a ProVacare prize pack valued at $60. This prize pack includes:



1 Provacare Soothing Feminine Foaming Wash = $6.99 
1 Provacare Probiotic Vaginal Care Capsules = $28.99 
1 Spa Kit = $20.00
Disclosure: All opinions are my own. I received a bottle of ProVacare Feminine Foaming Wash at no cost for the purpose of this review. No other compensation was received.

Disney Junior's Imagination Movers Are Coming To Canada! #IMCanadaTour (Giveaway)


It's been a few years since I sat down and watched shows on Disney Juniors since my kiddos are a bit older, so I'm pretty excited to start watching the shows again with the newest little one. One of the shows that caught my attention when my son was younger was the, Imagination Movers. They not only had catchy songs that I still remember til this day, if there was a problem, they were determined to solve it without giving up, which is something I loved most about my kids watching the show.

Getting Ready For Baby w/ @EvenflobabyCA #carseatsafety


This time next week I will be a mom again to a newborn baby girl. It's been seven years since we've had a newborn in our home. So to say that I'm excited and nervous at the same time is an understatement. I know it will all come back to me as soon as I'm holding her.

Since it has been seven years since we were preparing for a newborn in our house, we had to make a checklist to make sure we had everything we needed for our little bundle of joy. So I was very excited when I was asked to be one of Evenflo's Ambassadors for their Car Seat Safety Program. I was quickly excited because not only will I be sharing information to you awesome readers of Just Us Girls about car seat safety, but I would also be learning myself as it's been a long time since I had a little one in a car seat.

 Part of the Car Seat Safety Program included a car seat of my choice. I decided on the Evenflo JourneyLite Travel System. What I love most about this car seat and stroller is light it is. Now, just because it's light doesn't mean that this won't protect your little one. 

It's very durable and strong, but I love that when I become a mom to a newborn again having a stroller and car seat with me again won't be a headache. I remember my son and daughter's travel system from when they were babies and it was always a pain not only carrying the car seat in and out of the car, but also collapsing and getting the stroller in as well. With the JourneyLite Travel System's push-twist and fold method to close up your stroller, I can tell you now that this isn't the case and that it's very easy to do.

 I also love that this travel system has everything that I need while the baby and I are out. There's lots of storage for me to put my keys, a cup holder for a water bottle for myself and bottle for baby and the storage basket under the stroller is big enough to not only fit the diaper bag, but also my purse and extra bags if we're out shopping.  

While setting up our travel system, I made sure to read the owner's manual of the rear facing car seat, not only to refresh my memory, but since it's been seven years I'm sure the requirements have changed. I know one thing I didn't know before is that car seats have expiration dates on them. Did you know that? Companies do this so that current owners and buyers know the potential risks of using car seats and booster seats that may be missing important parts, labels or instructions.

Here are a few other things I've learned listed below, just in time before the new baby arrives, thanks to Evenflo and their Infant Only Car Seat Usage Checklist:

  • The infant seat is designed to be used rear facing only.
  • Many parents/caregivers may be tempted to place the infant seat facing forward to allow them to view their child more easily. This is a serious error and places the child at significant risk of injury/death in the event of a crash.
  • Do not use the rear-facing seat above the weight or height limits designated by the manufacturer. Once the child outgrows the seat, move to a rear-facing convertible seat with a higher weight rating.
  • The harness needs to be snug to hold an infant down in the seat so he or she does not slide up in a crash and become ejected from the car seat.   

For more information about Car Seat Safety, be sure to check out Evenflo online and follow them on Twitter for more Safety Tips. Also be sure to check back in here as we'll be sharing more tips throughout the next few months as well.
Disclosure: I am a Evenflo Ambassador and I receive special perks as part of my affiliation with this group; however all opinions expressed here are entirely my own.

The Other Woman Giveaway (Coming to DVD and Blu-ray, July 29th!)



It’s time to get evenand take girl power to a whole new level with THE OTHER WOMAN, debuting on Blu-ray & DVD July 29. Cameron Diaz and Leslie Mann as the leading ladies and newcomers Kate Upton and Nicki Minaj bringing the jokes left and right, ladies all over better be ready for the perfect movie to end their summer in style!

Cameron Diaz leads a knockout cast in this irreverent comedy about love, lust and the laws of karma. New York attorney Carly Whitten (Diaz) is nobody’s fool. So when she accidentally discovers that her too-good-to-be-true boyfriend Mark (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) is married, she’s less than thrilled. Not only that, she and Mark’s wife Kate (Leslie Mann), learn about yet another mistress (Kate Upton)! Great boyfriends are hard to find, even in the movies. To prepare you for the release of The Other Woman, we have made a list of the top ten boyfriends that Hollywood films have to offer.

In celebration to the movie making its way on DVD and Blu-ray, here are a few amazing movie boyfriends that not only makes Mark look worse, but guys that have made a way to our hearts:


1. Noah Calhoun- The Notebook “So it's not gonna be easy. It's going to be really hard; we're gonna have to work at this everyday, but I want to do that because I want you. I want all of you, forever, everyday. You and me... everyday.”


2. Jack Dawson- The Titanic
“Winning that ticket, Rose, was the best thing that ever happened to me... it brought me to you. And I'm thankful for that, Rose. I'm thankful.”


3. Leo Collins- The Vow
“I vow to fiercely love you in all your forms, now and forever. I promise to never forget that this is a once in a lifetime love. And to always know in the deepest part of my soul that no matter what challenges might carry us apart, we will always find our way back to each other.”


4. Sam Wheat- Ghost“I love you, Molly. I've always loved you.”


5. Augustus Waters- The Fault In Our Stars 
“I'm in love with you and I'm not in the business of denying myself the simple pleasure of saying true things. I'm in love with you, and I know that love is just a shout into the void, and that oblivion is inevitable, and that we're all doomed and that there will come a day when all our labor has been returned to dust, and I know the sun will swallow the only earth we'll ever have, and I am in love with you."


So which one of these handsome guys is your  favorite movie boyfriend?
