The recent Pop culture trend seems to center around the “Reboot” a revival of things from days gone by – a blast from the past ! You see this in fashion, TV shows and even music. So, on this #TBT I submit a treasure chest of sugary goodies that is breakfast cereal.
A recent conversation with “hubby” prompted a google search for a cereal I used to see on the shelf of our grocery store but didn’t remember who made it. He was off to get his tablet and scored this.
I was selected to receive these products for review, so I was excited to try products that were paraben-free, had plant-based ingredients and weren’t tested on animals.
The Basil scent was “intense” in the hand lotion and I wasn’t sure if I’d use it at all. The hand soap was assigned kitchen duty since I’m often washing my hands for meal prep; the lotion lives on my desk to keep my hands soft during these cold NE winters. I find my hands are excessively dry and the moisture lasts a while without having to constantly reapply.
I really love how well the hand soap cleanses without stripping the natural oils in my skin and the lotion adds moisture without leaving a greasy, tacky feel. The hand soap retails for $3.99 and the lotion for $4.99 per the Mrs. Meyer’s website. You can also purchase the Hand Care Basic set for $7.99 which saves you a couple of dollars of buying them individually. There are also foaming hand soaps which is my favorite method of hand soap because it dispenses an exact amount which reduces waste. I have spotted them in our Whole Foods and am looking forward to trying some of the other home care products.
I have been awaiting this day since its announcement last year. Newark welcomed Whole Foods with a grand opening last week and it is a welcome change ! We are all striving to eat better and having organic food is such a breath of fresh area for this urban city’s reboot.
Stepping into the renovated Hahne & Company (formerly a major department store) has been given an upscale makeover following 25 years of being abandoned. This view from the concourse is absolutely breathtaking !
The building includes retail spaces and boutique apartments. Change for the better has begun. Stay tuned for updates. . .
