Better For Grown Ups Organic Giveaway

I am so excited that I found Better For Grown Ups! Remember  Tom Cruise jumping  on Oprah's couch ? Well that was me when I found Better For Grown Ups Organic Cotton Rounds.  When you live a green life you are constantly searching for products that are environmentally friendly and are Enjoyable to use. I did contact Better for Grown Ups to share my excitement about their Organic Cosmetic Rounds. I asked if I could do a review and giveaway and they were happy to oblige.

I waited an anticipation for the organic cosmetic rounds to arrive. As I have been using organic cotton rounds the disposable ones, and have experienced some unpleasant irritations.
Being green I  do not care to contribute to any land fill. I also do not like the fact that little strands of cotton would stick to my face when removing  make up etc. Little strands of cotton on my eyelashes after removing eye makeup that would get in my eye!  This was a big ordeal for me nightly. I knew there had to be a better way.

I then decided to make my own cosmetic rounds out of organic bamboo velour fabric. O.k. like I have time to do that, Ha... I gave it a go as I'm an experienced seamstress. Honestly it turned into a time consuming ordeal. I do run a business out of my home, take care of children, a husband and play the handyman too. I finished 3 homemade cosmetic rounds,well not really round. They were not  firm enough to wipe my make up remover off steadily and 3 was just not going to get me thru the week.

When I found Better for GrownUps I was so ecstatic that they made several reusable organic cotton items. Other items include reusable  tissues and family wipes(these will be offered in the future for purchase at their site). The cool thing is they come in a reloadable dispensing box! After you use them you put them in an organic bag for washing. This bag is included when you purchase the fully loaded option. After washing and drying you reload your dispensing box.
Who is behind  Better for GrownUps? Better for GrownUps was created by a stay-at-home-Dad!.That in my opinion is awesome. Leah is the wife of this stay-at-home-Dad Zac, she is founder of  Better For Babies    
Better for Babies carries everything organic you need for diapering baby as well as other natural items.

My Better For GrownUps package arrived! I am very pleased to announce I love them...I'm very impressed with several facts. The reloadable box is very sturdy. The organic reusable cotton rounds dispense easily. Ohh the rounds have one side of color, such as orange , or blue with the other side being off white.Here is the description on their site "Each face round is two layers of organic, fair trade cotton velour which means it is super soft." They are truly soft.. I have used them nightly with my organic make up remover with pure pleasure. No more strands of cotton in my eye! I use them when applying my toner, they absorb my toner nicely, I have also used them as a cool eye compress. I applied my eye solution to 2 organic cotton rounds, then placed them in the freezer for several minutes. I placed them over my eyes for rejuvenation benefits. Fantastic!! The organic cotton rounds can also be used with my foaming face wash for gentle exfoliation! My 7 year old loves them too. She scraped her knee over the weekend and I cleansed her boo boo with one of the organic cotton rounds. She commented on how soft the round felt. We are going to continue to use our Better For GrownUps organic reusable rounds for several other tasks. Really when you think outside of the box you can come up with many ways to use them. We are going to use them to buff our nails after applying our nail strengthener. Can't wait! 

I'm going to be purchasing several boxes of the Organic reusable reloadable cotton rounds  to give as gifts. I think adding a bottle of  Joyful Girl Eye make up remover, Toner, Eye Solution compress and a bottle of our Nail strengthener will make a fantastic GREEN GIFT!

The price is right too! One reloadable box filled with 30 organic cotton rounds and an organic bag for washing them is 24.50 The bag for washing is really nifty too. Its a nice size , you can add other delicate items to the bag for when washing your rounds.. Lots of uses for this product.

Better For GrownUps has generously offered to give one of my followers a
 Reloadable dispensing box containing 30 rounds and a little bag in which to wash them.

Giveaway at Leslie Loves Veggies

Leslie is hosting a Joyful Girl Giveaway so you should run over there and enter!

Look At Me Now I'm 47

Argh, just celebrated my 47th birthday! Not sure how I feel about it. Like all birthdays I ponder what I have accomplished, what I need to accomplish, what I didn't accomplish. I did give birth to 5 amazing kids. That I would say is my biggest accomplishment.Matthew  28 (soon to be 29) Michael 26 Elizabeth 24 Eli 22 and my Kylie who is 7. I have 2 wonderful grandchildren Kaden 5 and Madison 22 mos.

I ponder where the time went, then I panic that I don't know how much time I have left. Can I make a difference in this world, touch a soul, change a life, in the time I have.I wake up everyday asking the universe "What can I do to make a difference in this world today?"  I pray to God every night to lead me to those I can comfort, love and bring peace to.  Oh so complex.

When creating Joyful Girl I did so out of the strong desire to touch women's lives, to lend a hand in healing naturally, to share my story of  a childhood of abusive and a 16 year marriage contributing the same. To show women that I crawled thru that dark tunnel of emotionally pain, fear, and insecurity to create a new life. To teach them they too can do the same. I pray each night that I have touched a soul, that I have helped a woman to change her life of abuse into a life of Joy. Doing so thru natural means.

Now today I have a new life a husband who loves me and treats me with respect. A 7 year old daughter who tells me to put my photo up here to show woman that they too can have skin like mine. She said" Mommy I can't find that many wrinkles on your face, cuz you use Joyful Girl products" I adore her, she is my biggest fan! She gives Joyful Girl products to all her friends as gifts, I of course use to say "Kylie no that isn't appropriate, I don't want their parents to think I'm pushing products" She says"Mommy your Joyful Girl products are the best, they are the best gift I want to give".  Yes really she says that!!! Now I let her package up whatever she would like to give as her presents. She knows what heals, what comforts, what soothes and she customizes each gift with the products she thinks the recipient needs. Then includes a business card. ( I do sneek them out sometimes depending on who its going to )  Anywhooo My life is good, I still ache to make a difference, I still ponder sometimes to obsession if I'm completing my life's purpose.

Thought I would share, if  I make you  ponder about how you can make a difference in life then its all good!
BTW I received some cool green brithday gifts from the owner of Green Goods  Denise Olsen. she is an amazing woman who opened a green store in N.C.
check out what she has online.

Much peace
just washed 47 year old skin!
