Giveaway: Poofy Organics Max Deodorant

In the past, I posted about my quest for an effective, long-lasting, safe, aluminum free deodorant. Additionally, at some point on my quest, I learned that I had a baking soda sensitivity. This definitely made things even harder. While I’ve found safe and aluminum free in abundance, effective and long-lasting (for me) has been far more difficult. I was actually to the point that I was ready to throw in the towel and go back to antiperspirant. Until I found Poofy Organics Max Deo.

Poofy Organics Max Deodorant is awesome. It’s aluminum free, toxin free, and it’s certified organic. It’s truly the best – and most effective – natural deodorant I’ve ever found. In fact, I love it so much, it’s all I use. Actually, I like Poofy Organics so much that I sell it!*

Additionally, I really want to share this great product with you. A lucky winner will win one Poofy Organics Max Deodorant in their choice of scents (available here)!  If, like me, you have a baking soda sensitivity, you’ll want to choose the Sensitive version. Smells not your thing? That’s okay, we have a Plain Jane unscented version.

There are a couple of caveats here that you should know. Many people have a bit of a detoxing period when switching to a natural deodorant where they experience a few days where they feel really stinky. This does pass. Also, from time to time, do a good exfoliation on your pits in the shower, either a loofah, a sugar scrub, etc.

Good luck to everyone!

Also, my disclosure is found here.

Ceili Fey’s new boyfriend

Ceili Fey was “asked out” today by a boy she met at the start of the year. I’m not sure how I should feel about this.

My initial, though useless, is to yell, “Stop it! You’re not supposed to grow up so fast!” *sigh* It’s hard to believe she’s 13 already.

Happy 8th Birthday, Elias


You should have been 8 today. You should have been looking forward to summer break, to you and Noah walking Henry to kindergarten this fall. We should have been planning a party for you. Instead, in the morning, we’ll be getting ready to go to the cemetery, instead. Like we do every year for your birthday.

It never really gets easier, does it.

Happy birthday, Bow. I love and miss you so very much.

Giveaway: Poofy Organics “The” Sunscreen

We keep hearing more and more about ingredients in everyday products that aren’t so safe for us. There are also a lot of companies out there that make a lot of claims about the safety of their products that turn out to be not so good. In some cases, they seem to be outright lying about ingredients.

I want to introduce everyone to Poofy Organics “The” Sunscreen. It comes in both a tube and a stick. You’ve probably never heard of it, which is too bad because it’s a great product. It even keeps my pasty self – and my pasty kids – from burning.

Just as a quick intro, Poofy Organics is a small, family company out of New Jersey. The company started after a family member was diagnosed with breast cancer, causing the family to eschew toxic chemicals. Everything is made by hand to order. They really care what goes into their products!

One lucky winner will get to choose from a tube or a stick of “The” Sunscreen!

Good luck!
