It’s summer time and with sun dresses and short season upon us its time to stock up on some great razors. BIC just released a great new razor the BIC Soleil Glow.  And so far I love this razor. The blades are crazy sharp which means no stubble or going over spots twice. And the comfort strip and comfort shield protect my skin from nicks.

In the photo below you can see the great cover that comes with this razor.  Most travel/storage covers seem to pop off or just not stay on at all. I love the cover on the BIC Soleil Glow you slide it on and it snaps into place. I have used this for travel and the cover stays put until you slide it off. No more dulling the blade as it jostles in my bag or worrying about find a razor in my bag blade first. This is such a great razor it leaves my skin so soft and smooth and has cut my shave time considerably. And the best part a 3 pack is under $7!

WARNING FOR PARENTS! Consumer Reports telling parents to NOT USE spray-on sunscreen!

0007965603058_500X500

An important alert this afternoon for parents!

According to a new report, spray-on sunscreens can put your child at risk for asthma or allergy attacks! Consumer Reports released the news after the Food and Drug Administration announced in 2011 that they are studying the product as to whether or not it can be harmful when inhaled by children. The FDA is still undecided.

“We now say that until the FDA completes its analysis, the products should generally not be used by or on children,” Consumer Reports says. “We have also removed one sunscreen spray — Ocean Potion Kids Instant Dry Mist SPF 50 — from the group of recommended sunscreens in our sunscreen ratings, because it is marketed especially for children.”

CR cautions only to use sprays on children if no other product is available at the time. If that is the case, CR recommends adults spray the sunscreen onto their hands and then rub it on their kids, avoiding the eyes and mouth.

However, some folks think the spray-on sunscreens have benefits. Spence Crimmins of Jacksonville Beach, Fla., protects his 8-year-old with spray-on sunscreen because it “goes on smooth and doesn’t leave a thick residue.” His son, Ryan Crimmins, likes the spray because it doesn’t take long to apply, leaving more time for water activities.

“It’s just quick and easy and it’s really smooth and it doesn’t hurt my skin,” Crimmins said.

Dr. Sunil Joshi, a family asthma and allergy specialist, says spray-on sunscreens and all aerosol products should never be used on kids with respiratory symptoms. Joshi says the sprays can trigger allergy or asthma attacks.

“If there is a child who tends to cough or wheeze or gets head colds and now you are spraying in their face, they are very likely to have those same symptoms and that can persist for hours at a time,” Joshi said. He recommends sunscreens without scents and hypo-allergenic lotions.

Crimmins says despite the warning from Consumer Reports, he will continue using sprays on his children.

“It doesn’t persuade me because this is my youngest and we’ve used it since he was little and we have a 21-year-old and they are both doing just fine,” Crimmins said. When WTLV-TV polled 10 families in Jacksonville Beach, the station found 7 out of 10 parents use spray-on sunscreens for their youngsters.

Good to know! I will use lotions from now on!

Bug Sprays – that DON’T STINK!!

slide_356181_3917930_free

It’s that time of year again! Camping, swimming, hanging out on the beach. Who doesn’t love sitting by the pool and laying out – or sitting by the fire after a day of camping – and roasting marshmallows? We all love it, no? You know what I DON’T LOVE? Dealing with mosquito’s! Seems like mosquito’s and camping go hand in hand. Each year as I’m packing for my trips I have to stock up on bug spray, and I hate freaking bug spray. It smells awful, feels awful, and I find it a necessary evil. Don’t we all?

You know I swear Oregon has kamikaze mosquito’s that will bite THROUGH your clothes.

Anyway, this summer there’s no need to suffer! I’ll be stocking up on these bad boys as soon as I get off here! Several companies have come out with good, clean smelling bug sprays! Where have you been all my life!
