I received the Vicks SmartTemp thermometer for free via Influenster for my honest opinion.

This is not my first go at a "smart" thermometer. The Vicks SmartTemp thermometer uses Bluetooth to wirelessly connect to your smartphone. You have to download the app to use this thermometer. It supports Android and iPhone.

The app is easy to use. I have added profiles for each member of my family. The thermometer takes temperatures quickly. There are three options for use: oral, underarm and rectal. That means you can use this for any member of the family no matter their age.

The thermometer device it self is about the size of a normal thermometer. The difference is there is no digital screen to read the actual temperature. The only visual indicator on the device itself is color: green, yellow or red depending on the reading. The temperature read out shows on your smartphone instead.

The app stores the readings for each profile and even lets you add symptoms and notes for each reading. There is also the feature to remind to take temperature again or even medication reminders. Useful for when children or yourself are on antibiotics.

The device does require a battery. The app has a feature so that you can see exactly how much battery is left. A nice feature.

Overall, I like this smart thermometer. I may even like it better than the other smart thermometer I already had only because of the wireless feature and the overall appearance of the app.

Who hasn't ever used Suave shampoo or conditioner?
Suave has to be one of the cheapest options when it comes to body cleansing products.

I have been using Suave Professionals Almond + Shea Butter shampoo and conditioner for quite a while now (I want to say even years). I love it.

First, the smell is great.
However, it is the quality of the product that has me hooked.
I have pretty thick hair that I leave at a long length. Therefore, I rely on products that moisturize and keep my hair tangle free. Suave Professionals Almond + Shea Butter shampoo and conditioner do this perfectly. The shampoo alone does a fantastic job of cleansing and conditioning my hair. I almost do not need the conditioner after shampooing.

I usually buy the large 2 piece bottle combo with the pumps, which make showers faster, at Target. I can't seem to find them at Wal-Mart anymore. The price, again, can't be beat. Both large bottles are just over $5.

If you haven't tried this particular product I highly recommend Suave Professionals Almond + Shea Butter shampoo and conditioner.

The Braun Forehead Thermometer is a great option for taking your family's temperature.
We have used the Braun Forehead Thermometer many time since receiving it for review.
Braun Forehead Thermometer is easy to use with one button for power and another for taking the temperature.

To take the temperature you press the power on button, then the temperature button while resting the device in the middle of the forehead; gently pressing and dragging to the temple and back to the middle of the forehead. The temperature is then displayed on the display panel with a corresponding color of green, orange or red depending on the results. Those color cues were a hit in our home. My youngest preferred the orange result. o.O

We also have a Vick's forehead thermometer in our home and I can say that I prefer the Braun version over the Vick's. The difference is that the Braun's version has two buttons instead of one, which makes the use of the device much easier to understand and use correctly on the first try. Not so with the Vick's version.

Overall, I am very pleased with the Braun Forehead Thermometer. I highly suggest the Braun Forehead Thermometer.

17 Times slimmet tip bristles for a deep clean

  • 17x slimmer tip bristles for a deep clean
  • 6x* deeper reach between teeth and gums
  • 1.5x** deeper access between teeth
  • 35% more bristles for unique mouth feel
  • An ergonomic and flexible handle

* vs. a manual flat trim toothbrush with end-rounded bristles
** vs. an ordinary manual toothbrush

I received the Colgate® SlimSoft™ Toothbrush via Influenster for free. This is my original opinion on the product.

The SlimSoft offers a super soft, minimally designed toothbrush. The original concept is the longer, softer bristles that reach deep down between the teeth the gums. Suffice it to say that this toothbrush does both!
I was pleasantly surprised by how soft the bristles were. My previous toothbrush was a Colgate toothbrush as well but it also had some plastic foamy things to help whiten and clean the teeth. I would say that the previous brush was more firm and had a larger head. The SlimSoft cleaned my teeth very well with minimal effort.
 I would STRONGLY suggest that you DO NOT OVER BRUSH your teeth the first (or any) time. The soft bristles are deceiving! I over brushed my teeth the first night I used it and woke up with painfully sore gums. Maybe it was a necessity to remove any build up along my gum lines but man, it was not a fun experience.
Overall, I am happy with the SlimSoft and plan to continue using it and will probably replace it with the same brush in a few months.

The Nerf Rebelle Heartbreaker bow is a great toy for a young girl. My daughter is 9 years old and enjoys playing with the bow that we received for free for an honest review from BzzAgent.
