October 2019 – Products This Mom Loves (or will love soon)

Just wanted to start off by saying Thank You to those who have been contacting me the last 3 months or so. I’ve been M.I.A from the internet because I was moving. I had a surprising number of people reaching out to me to see if I was ok. Thank You!



It’s been a hectic past 3 months but I’m back and recharged ๐Ÿ™‚

I’ve skipped August and September Products This Mom Loves lists which only means I have even more to share for October. Enjoy!

AutoBrush Kids V3

Autobrush V3 – Kids electric toothbrush

Once in awhile you’ll bump into a product that’s so necessary and revolutionary that it’s just worth every penny to buy it. This is one of them, guys. If you have kids (or teeth) you need this. For myself personally, I love having the Autobrush V3 for my kids… because let’s be real here – they can’t brush their teeth as clean as you would like alone and you just don’t have the time to do it for them every single night and day. Totally worth the money and they’re cute too! Use code BECAUSEMOMLIFE30 and get 30% off your purchase (valid only on their website) : https://tryautobrush.com/collections/frontpage

Simmons Kids SlumberTime Naturally Foam Crib and Toddler Mattress Waterproof Non-Toxic

If you’re in the market for a great baby crib mattress, look no further. We just received this mattress a few days ago and we absolutely love it. Previous to owning the Simmons Kids SlumberTime Mattress by Delta Children we had a regular mattress with a vinyl cover. Over time the vinyl cover cracked and the insides were coming out. The SlumberTime mattress is made with all non-toxic materials, has a cotton outer lining and is comfortable and safe to sleep on. I’m a little jealous of my toddler!

Fanola No Yellow Shampoo, 350 ml

Fanola No Yellow Shampoo

I started bleaching my dark brown hair as a means to keep my greys covered for a longer period of time. Bleaching dark hair can easily cause orange and yellow hues to come out and that look died about a decade ago. If you want to maintain ashy or platinum bleached hair you’ll need to do regular maintenance with some good quality purple shampoo. There are TONS on them online and it’s really hard to find one that’s decent quality and works well. Let your search end here: The Fanola No Yellow Shampoo makes all the orangey and yellow tones go away and you’ll see results with just one wash. Don’t forget to wear gloves in the shower, you’ll have purple hands if you don’t. But for 11$, this find is a gem for anyone trying to maintain bleached hair.

Bentgo Kids Prints (Unicorn)

Bentgo Kids Prints (Unicorn)

I’ve been using Bentgo since my first started day care (about 5 years ago). I still have the first one which I will happily be handing down to my 3rd when he starts day care this December. For my daughter I wanted to get something a bit more girly and since she has an obsession with unicorns I thought this would be the perfect item! Not much has changed to the design besides the obvious printed pattern and I’m happy for that. I’ve never had an issue with leaks and the portions come out to perfect when filled.

Unrefined African Shea Butter – Ivory, 100% Pure & Raw

Unrefined African Shea Butter – Ivory, 100% Pure & Raw

My youngest has severe eczema. A lot of it is concentrated all over his legs, ankles, and arms. Although I have a regimen of products to use at home it’s not the most convenient to apply these products while we’re out. Shea Butter has been one of the best products I could take around while shopping or at a restaurant to apply on Maverick’s skin.

Mind you, Shea Butter doesn’t do much to stop the itching but when applied regularly in between flare-ups, this stuff works well in keeping the skin hydrated. This particular Shea Butter is unrefined and raw making it hard at room temperature and difficult to apply just as is. I used a double boiler method to melt down the product a little and whipped for about 2-3 minutes. Next, I poured the whipped shea butter into small containers and carry them around in my purse or diaper bag. Not only is this great for my toddler’s dry skin, it’s great for mine!

RUGGABLE Moroccan Trellis Light Grey

Ruggable – Machine washable rug!

I have 3 young kids (7, 3 and 1)… And I have a dog. The smells, spills, and stains that my last rug went through was insane. When I saw ads online for Ruggable I knew I needed this in my life. Ruggable is a machine washable rug… Do you really need another selling point? You just throw it in the wash and it’s brand new again. They have a huge selection of designs on their website but you can find a few overstock items on Amazon. I opted for the “Linear Aztec Black Rug” because I liked the black and white pattern. Check out my full review, coming soon!

Fuloon Super Fit Stretch Chair Covers

Stretchy Chair Covers

When we first purchased our dinning table and chair set, I loved it. We had beautiful light grey upholstery and a clean light grey wooden table. Now? Not so much. Currently I have a number of huge stains that just won’t come out of the fabric. I found these chair covers on Amazon and they’re perfect! The Fuloon chair covers are a super stretchy material that can fit over pretty much any standard sized dinning chair. When one of my kids spills a drink or tipped over their pasta bowl I just throw the cover into the wash and it’s new again!

Waterproof Dining Bench Cover

Dinning bench cover

Another part of our dinning set that was covered in stains was our bench. Not too many sellers have this product but I’ve managed to find someone who was selling 11 colors in 2 different sizes. Just like the chair covers above, the bench cover is machine washable, easy to put on and just pretty much awesome.

Mom Review: Autobrush V3 For Kids

Mom Review: Autobrush V3 For Kids

If you haven’t seen or heard of Autobrush yet, you’re about to get your mind blown.

AutoBrush V3 review

Let me start off by explaining what Autobrush is.

AutoBrush is an electric toothbrush. Redesigned and effective , this is an electric toothbrush you don’t even have to hold up and brush your teeth with. It’s shaped like a mouth guard and you just gently bite down and the device will gently brush your teeth. Sounds amazing right?

Now imagine your kids with this device… YES, no more having to brush for them. No more wondering if they have to brush again. No more having to drag them into the bathroom to brush their teeth, because trust me, they’re gonna love AutoBrush.

AutoBrush Kids V3 Pros & Cons Review

Cons

  • You need your own plug: This product comes with the USB charger, not the actual plug that goes into the wall. You’ll have to borrow the plug from your phone or other devices at home to charge the AutoBrush V3

Here’s a similar plug I found on Amazon that has 2 USB ports so I could charge both of our Autobrushes at the same time and place.

Dual Port Ultra Thin Flat USB Wall Charger
  • The light doesn’t really do anything: At first glance I really thought the red light from the toothbrush was going to be some kind of super powered sanitizing light lol! The light doesn’t do anything besides look cool which isn’t really a pro or con I guess.
  • Brushing with AutoBrush is an adjustment: We’ve been using this product for about 4-5 days and the kids are just starting to get used to them. Although they really enjoy brushing, they didn’t quite understand how to get their teeth clean with the mouth guard shaped bristles. Instead of letting the brush work for 1 session (30 seconds) I make them run it twice or 3 times.
  • The size of the brush really matters: In one of my videos my oldest says”The brush is like hitting the back of my throat”. I didn’t get what he was saying at the time but I quickly realized that the 8+ size AutoBrush was too big for him. His front teeth were not reaching the bristles and therefore were not getting brushed properly. Make sure you check the sizes on the website before purchasing.

Pros

  • The kids finally want to brush their teeth: It’s a struggle to get my kids to the bathroom in the mornings (who am I kidding , at night too) to wash up and brush their teeth. Now they get so excited about it that they’re running into the bathrooms before I am and fighting over the step stool for who can brush first.
  • It works: Although the 8+ size was too big for my oldest the 3-7 year old size was just perfect for my 3 year old. I’ve been checking Melanie’s teeth after every brush session and I don’t see or feel plaque.
  • It plays music: The V3 plays a jungle beat that the kids just love! I love how my kids are starting off every morning with a quick brush and a happy dance. It would be great to be able to upload your own music in the future too! (*hint hint* AutoBrush!)
  • Foaming toothpaste: Have I been living under a rock? Do you guys see foaming toothbrush in the stores? I haven’t. The kids think it’s fun and I just get the feeling a foaming toothpaste would clean better because it would reach more tiny spaces in the mouth. The toothpaste AutoBrush provides is great and most importantly, safe! (non-GMO and fluoride free!)
  • Once fully charged, it stays charged for good while: Although we’ve only been using AutoBrush for a little less than a week, we haven’t had to charge it yet (yes, right out of the box! – I know it says to charge fully before using but whatever). You can easily tell how much battery life you have left my placing the brush on the charging pad. If all the lights are red, it’s charged. The less lights are on, the more you need to charge.
  • It’s cleaner and lasts longer: The AutoBrush features silicone mouth guard and bristles which are easier to clean than your traditional nylon bristles. (not to mention softer and probably safer for sensitive gums). Also, I don’t have any science to back this up but the bristles are a rubbery silicone material. It feels similar to the clear silicone used in baby bottle nipples. I’ve accidentally dropped a baby bottle nipple in my sink disposal one time and nothing happened to it. I’m assuming the AutoBrush bristles are just as durable.

So, is it worth the price?

Ok, I’ll do some math and you decide if it’s worth it.

I was spending about $4.00 on a kids toothbrush every month which would come out to about $48 dollar per year. I pay another $4.00 for kids toothpaste every month which is about $48.00.

Total for the year with a regular electric toothbrush and toothpaste? $98 per kid.


The Autobrush V3 Kids Bundle (brush and toothpaste) is $105
I don’t know how long the toothpaste is going to last and maybe the bristles on the AutoBrush won’t hold up for as long I thought.. So, an extra toothpaste is $10 each and the Kids replacement bristles are another $8.

Estimate total for a year with AutoBrush? $133

_____

For an extra $35 / year I can have happy-to-brush-kids and clean teeth.
I don’t know about you, but this is totally worth it for me.

Versa Brella 4-Way Swiveling Sun Umbrella


Versa Brella 4-Way Swiveling Sun Umbrella – Midnight Blue

Living close to the beach has it’s perks, yes, but it has never occurred to me until we moved here that we would have to carry EVERYTHING. In past years we would sit in a car for an hour or so looking for close parking and just walk straight into the sand with our belongings. This is no more, we tow everything and everyone on our bikes or walk with a wagon for a good 30 minutes before we reach the sea. Having shade once we get to the beach has been a struggle for me (especially if I’m going without the husband). Carry a canopy to the beach? With three kids 7 years and younger?

Oh, no thanks.

This clamp on umbrella is (I think) the best thing I’ve bought for the beach recently. The Versa Brella is Super light-weight and rolls up into a bag with a strap. You can change the angle of the umbrella to block the sun from pretty much any direction. Genius. I haven’t used it at the beach yet (still getting over the fear of taking my crazy kids to the beach by myself) but I’ll update asap.

David’s Tea – Feel Good Iced Teas

David’s Tea – Sample Pack

I’m not linking the actual item I have because I don’t see it on Amazon… Photo of the actual tea I have here:

I received this set as a birthday gift yesterday and I’m dying to try it asap… I’m just having a hard time getting over the fact that I’ll have to rip open the pretty packaging (anyone else out there like this?) Personally, I can’t wait to try the Mermaid Tea which is Spiruline Marine flavor that has a pineapple / butterfly pea / moringa flavor. This one has a really pretty mermaid blue color to it.

Starbucks Color Changing Cold Cups

Ok, So I get sucked into online fads once in awhile but I’m so glad I got sucked into this one. These cups are SO pretty… I just can’t. If you didn’t know already these cups are limited edition and sold out in all stores. If you want to get your hands on one you’ll have to pay the inflated price online… which is what I did… Because it’s my mo’f’in birthday and I can.

I’m linking the product into Amazon here but honestly you’ll find much better prices on eBay for this one. Tip: Try to find a seller who has sold more than one of this product and has a few reviews for this particular item already… because I can only imagine the number of people who might be selling fake cups on a platform like eBay. The seller I purchased from also bundled the marble hot cups into the order and I paid a total of $80 for all 5 of the color changing cold cups and 5 marble hot cups. Although this was the cheapest price I found for this product… Don’t tell my husband I spent $80 on plastic cups… thanks.

Burt’s Bees Tinted Lip Balm – Sweet Violet

This product isn’t new what-so-ever but it’s something I’ve been using for YEARS. This is the only lip balm I’ve ever used to the end. The absolute end…as in I take a small brush and dig out the product from the base. This balm is my daily must have item and it’s perfect for daily use when I don’t feel like putting on lip stick. The sweet violet color is the only one I like and I feel it goes with pretty much any skin tone.

Crown Churroz – Korean Snack

Koreans? Making Churros? When I saw these at the Korean supermarket, I’ll be honest I was a bit skeptical because I just love Churros… You guys, They nailed it. These are amazing. Chunchy, cinnamon sugary, little sticks of joy. I’m pretty sure they’ll be cheaper at your local Korean market but I’m linking them to Amazon so you can take a closer look. Make sure you purchase the brand name “CROWN”. Knowing Korean brands there will be a few other companies trying to make a similar product right down to the packaging to attract customers.

Lowrey’s Bacon Curls Microwave Pork Rinds Chicharrones

Obviously, I’ve given up on any diets this month…

Ok, If you like pork rinds, you need this in your life. It will change you, I promise. I’ve gotten 3 people on Amazon subscription to this product just this past week.

My husband and I discovered this these pork rinds at the DOLLAR STORE. Yep… The 99 Cents Only store to be exact. These aren’t in the usual chip aisle so you’ll have to search for them. I thought a dollar for 1 bag was a good deal – it’s so much cheaper on Amazon! If you’re hesitant about buying a whole pack of 18 just try your local 99 Cents Only Store. If you like pork rinds I promise you’ll love these.

Imagine this: You have a microwave popcorn bag. You microwave it for a couple of minutes and when you rip open your bag there are hot, crackling and popping pork rinds. My life is complete ya’ll.

Products from May 2019 <- Check out this link to see the list of products I’ve purchased last month

MyBite Multivitamin Chocolate Chewables

I actually purchased the kids version of these at Target the other week and my kids LOVE them. My oldest always reminds me to grab them for him every morning! What I found interesting is that each bite (or serving) has less sugar than many of the gummy varieties of vitamins I took a look at the store that day. Kids love these, we don’t forget to eat them and they taste good!

Besiva Sand Free Beach Blanket

I still haven’t gone to the beach with this mat. After receiving it, i’m not too convinced it’ll even work as advertised. We’ll see I suppose, stay tuned!

SECRET KEY Lemon Sparkling Peeling Gel Exfoliater

A dear friend of mine has been raving about this product for awhile now and I’ve been fortunate enough to try it out (again) on our recent trip to Palm Springs. Yes, It was as good as I remember it to be! It’s a scub peel that exfoliates like CRAZY. I didn’t even know I had so much dead skin on my face before I used this stuff.

Directions: Use on a dry face and lightly scrub your skin. You’ll start to see literal chunks of dead skin come off your face (SO gross but amazing and oh so satisfying at the same time!) Wash off with warm water and gentle, I repeat: GENTLE face wash. It’s a peel; Don’t use it with other exfoliants. Skip sunbathing and other harsh chemicals on the skin for a couple of days afterwards. I’ve only tried this a few times but I would advise using this peel face wash once every 1-2 weeks.

Kristen Ess The One Signature Shampoo & Conditioner

I’m not adding any links to purchase this product because the Kristen Ess products sold on Amazon seem to have some bad reviews (possibly a counterfeit/expired item)? Besides, it’s half price at Target – $10.00 each! Smells amazing + feels amazing. I’ll update my review after a few weeks.

Trader Joe’s Mint Watermelon Tea

Current Mood: Trader Joe’s Mint Watermelon Tea is LIFE

I have this product linked to Amazon just in case someone wanted more detailed info on it. If you do plan on purchasing, go straight to Trader Joe’s! A close friend of mine came over with a tin of this stuff and I instantly fell in l o v e.

Straight out of the tin this tea smells like watermelon bubblegum. You get a taste of mint on your first sip that gradually turns into a watermelon bubble gum-ish after taste. I’ve been brewing the Mint Watermelon Tea and mixing in Milo’s No Calorie Famous Sweet Tea and a handful of ice every afternoon and it’s life changing. (Milo’s sweet tea is available in SoCal at Walmart and Sam’s Club if anyone is interested.

Dashima (Kombu) Dried Kelp – For my hair

Dashima (Dashi Kombu) is AMAZING as a hair pack!

I know this product looks really random on this list but, just listen. I’ve been using this stuff I can’t even believe how much smoother my hair looks in just a couple of uses. I’m dedicating an entire blog to this within the week so stay tuned!

May 2019 – Products I Love (or will love soon)

Happy May everyone! I’ll be posting all the products I feature on my IG here. Will update with a review asap once I use them. Or, you can just follow me on Insta and check out my stories from time to time for quicker updates.

Disney Fantasy Gown Nightgown Pajamas



These pajamas are SO flippin’ cute guys! I found them at Costco for $12.99 but there are tons of them on Amazon for less than $20. We just purchased an Elsa and Belle gown earlier today.

Melanie is OBSESSED with her Disney Elsa Nightgown.
Costco Find! Only $12.99 FTW

Update 5/8/19: The glitter on this dress irritates my daughters skin. She had severe Eczema as a baby so she has sensitive skin. Washed 4 times and still glitter coming off… I’m in a tough situation because Melanie is asking to wear this dress 10000x a day. We’ll try again in a few more washes.

Purple For Brown Hair By Overtone

So.. if you haven’t noticed already, my hair is red. Not ginger red but red, red. I had my hair bleached about a year ago and didn’t like the look of my roots growing out. I absolutely don’t have the time (or money tbh) to sit in a salon for 4 hours getting my roots bleached again. My solution? Add color.


I found Overtone in my FB feed and decided to give it a try… Fell. In. LOVE.

Overtone is a colored hair conditioner/treatment so it colors your hair on top of making my frizzy damaged hair smooth. I opted for the Extreme Red set that cost me about $50. I’ve been using this product once every 1-2 weeks since October 2018 (6-7 months ago) and I still have some left. I have long shoulder/mid back length hair. SO worth the money.

This time I decided to try the Purple For Brown Hair color. Overtone offers a custom color kit with the Extreme Red and Extreme Purple color together and it looks amaze-ballz.

Ok, so I’m using the Purple For Brown color which could turn out a little different than what’s pictured.. I’ll update as soon as I can ๐Ÿ™‚

Following are not affiliate links: I just really like this brand

https://overtone.co/ – they offer a ton of color options! Super quick and easy to use. I leave on my treatment for 5 minutes or less. Make sure to use gloves. Also, wipe down your shower afterwards.

https://overtone.co/collections/custom-color-kits/ – This is the link to the custom color kits they offer.

Overtone Review:

You guys. I did it.. and I can’t. I love Overtone. I washed my hair last night and left on the treatment for less than 5 minutes. Check out my hair this morning:

Enjoyee Hair Dryer Brush""“>Enjoyee Hair Dryer Brush


This one was a little treat for myself on Mother’s Day! I recently cut my hair into long layers and I left the salon with silky smooth straight hair. Once I washed it, my hair went back to its frizzy damaged old self. I have a lot of hair, it’s just really thin. With years of at-home bleaching and years of perms and stuff, the ends are just always frizzy. I’m able to tame it down a bit with a straightener but it’s just not the same as getting a blow out from a salon. My hair looks a lot more polished when it’s curled but realistically, what mom of three has time for that? I’m tired of having my hair in a messy bun 24/7 so I’m trying this dryer brush. *Crossing Fingers*

Review: This brush saves me SO much time guys. It’s a dupe of the Revlon dryer brush which is currently priced at $47 on Amazon. I spent $35.00 on this and it was worth every penny. The ends of my hair are always pretty frizzy and this brush plus a small amount of defrizzing product solves all my hair issues every morning.

Bear Essentials Microfiber Camping and Travel Towel

I just received this lightweight travel towel from Bear Essentials in Teal. Saving it for this Memorial Day! Hoping to get some good use out of this at the pool. #ad

Furbo Pet Camera

Furbo was released in 2016 and honestly I don’t know what took me so long to get one. I just received mine yesterday and absolutely love it! Video quality is good. Audio is clear. App is easy to use and the Furbo is really easy to set up. Connect the Furbo to your wifi at home and you can watch your pet from anywhere. What I really like about the Furbo is that it has a “bark alert” and you can set your setting to high (sensitive to sounds) or low (not so sensitive to sounds. We needed this because our fur baby starts howling within 10 minutes of us leaving the house. There’s a 2-way speak and mic function and you can throw your pup some treats at any time. The only downside is the price. $200-250 is a little much for the average person – my suggestion: search on eBay, Craigslist, LetGo or somewhere similar for a gently used one.

7Senses Hanging Toiletry Bag

We travel quite a bit – nothing major overseas, just weekend getaways with the family to San Diego, Palm Springs, Vegas, and San Francisco. Ever since I discovered the hanging toiletry bag I can’t be without one on my trips. These types of bags can hang easily in the bathroom and can hold so much! (Kids, husbands, and my things). The exact one I have is pictured above!

Products I Love April 2019

Hey everyone! Hope April 2019 has been treating you wonderfully. I get a lot of questions about the products I post on my IG and IG Stories so I decided to make a page dedicated to just that on my blog. I’ll be updating this section of my blog as much as possible so please bookmark or follow me on Instagram (www.instagram.com/because_mom_life) for the latest. Click on any of the images below for the direct links!

Triple Cream : This stuff is one of the thickest lotions I’ve ever used. Sticky? Yes, but great for my kids eczema flares. Just lather on as needed! $24.99 on Amazon
Update: I’ve been using this cream for a little over a month now and after 3 tubs, I’m still happy with it!
Seat cushion by Purple: So if you haven’t been living under a rock you’ve seen the countless ads on your Facebook and Instagram feeds for a Purple Mattress. Unfortunately I’m not baller enough for the mattress but I DID get myself the seat cushion… and it’s amazing. $79.00 on Amazon
Update: My husband says his butt feels awesome ๐Ÿ™‚ He sits on the computer for hours at a time to work and this seat cushion has been doing wonders for him.
Parenting Let’s Make A Game Of It: Great, easy and entertaining to read parenting book! I hate reading, but this was good. The Amazon Kindle version is only $2.99! No brainer.

Project Sunscreen: A ROLL ON sunscreen for kids and baby! No harsh chemicals, easy to apply, easy to carry… Seriously, one of my favorite products I’ve bumped into so far this year! $14.99 on website below


https://projectsunscreen.com/collections/all
Use code: HAVEABALL15 for 15% off

Update: After a month of using this product we still love it! Its just so easy to apply and carry around. Since it’s always strapped onto my baby bag we never forget it!



Natural Eyelash Growth Serum By Match Lash: This one I’m still in the process of using and getting results from. Tbh I haven’t been able to be consistent using this product but I wanted to add it here just in case anyone else had any input or experience using it before. $49.99 on Amazon
Update: whompwhompwhomp ๐Ÿ™ Don’t like this product. Didn’t do much for my lashes and my eyes burned the next morning after application.

Medline Remedy Olivamine Calazime Skin Protectant Paste Cream: I was introduced to this product through a close friend and am really impressed with the results! I’ve been using this on areas of my kids skin that are really effected by eczema. It does have a “dry” feel to it almost like it could dry out the skin but it has quite the opposite effect! Only downside I’ve experienced is that it gets on clothes and leaves a white-ish residue. I’ll be going over this on my IG stories soon so stay tuned! $6.92 on Amazon
Update: Because of the color of the lotion it’s difficult to apply all throughout the day. But yes, it helps with the itching. If you try this lotion, prepare to have lotion residue on everything it touches.

Slime Bonanza Slime kit: I haven’t opened this one yet but I’ll be doing just that with my kids the first chance we get. (Most likely within a week or two). It has good reviews and has a decent price. $19.99 on Amazon
Update: I still haven’t opened this with my kids! Will add this to the May 2019 product list and finally review it.

Gellen Gel Nail Polish Top and Base Coat: I recently invested in a UV led lamp so I could do my nails at home. Saves so much time and money! This base and top coat has been absolutely perfect and my nails are now going on a week and half with no chips or peeling. (note: I do a lot of chores, dishes and bottle washing without gloves!) The set is only $7.99 on Amazon
Update: With this top coat and base, my home cured gel nails lasted almost 2 weeks. I don’t use gloves when washing dishes so 2 weeks is pretty good in my opinion.

Burt’s Bees Baby footed sleepers: I love Burt’s Bees because they use organic cotton. In terms of my youngest Maverick and his eczema, putting on massive amounts of lotion and keeping the area COVERED seems so help immensely. He’s old enough now where he can pull regular socks off so having footed clothing is a MUST. These are light enough so wear regularly, they have non-slip feet and are zippered. I purchased the 2 pack ( A Bee C/Stripe 2-pk ) for $27.00 on Amazon.
Update: So the bands around the wrists were a little too tight for Maverick so I had to cut them off. Whatever works I guess?
