Aquafresh Iso-Active/ She Speaks

I am a member of shespeaks. I have recently been trying the new Aquafresh Iso-active toothpaste. I must say this is my new favorite toothpaste. Here is the information posted on the shespeaks website about this toothpaste.
Experience a Revolutionary New Toothpaste Gel-to-Foam Technology.

Introducing a breakthrough technology in toothpaste – new Aquafresh® iso-active® Whitening. This innovative gel transforms into a deep-cleaning foam and disperses active ingredients --providing the next generation of clean.
Aquafresh iso-active is delivered in a revolutionary canister. This technologically-advanced toothpaste has the ability to clean and protect between teeth and penetrate into critical, hard-to-reach areas. This is a brand new approach to total oral health. We can’t wait to hear what you think.

This toothpaste truly does make my mouth feel so clean and fresh just like after the dentist. The taste is a little overpowering and the foaming action is significant. All I had to do was use less of the toothpaste and this was tolerable. I can see one tube of this lasting a long time. In addition I love the packaging, no more tubes squeezed in the middle.

So do you want to try new products? Head on over to shespeaks and sign up. It only takes a few minutes and is so fun.

Want to try the new Aquafresh Iso-Active toothpaste for yourself? Post a comment on telling me your current toothpaste and list the best and worst feature of your current brand. On Friday I will send out 5 coupons to 5 people who comment. Please include your email addressee so I can reach you!

Aveno Baby on bzzagent

I have been trying the Aveeno Baby products I received through Bzzagent. They sent me a full sized bottle of the Aveeno baby Essential Moisture Shampoo. I must say I enjoy this product on my 4 month old. The scent is not over powering. It lathers well yet not so much that it makes it difficult to rinse out. I don't feel it cakes on his scalp at all like some shampoo's. I also was sent some samples of the Aveeno Baby diaper cream. I will say this is one of my favorite products of this type now. It goes on easily and works wonders. There is no scent, which is what I prefer in the diaper area.

So you ask.... what is bzzagent? Well go here to find out and sign up. I enjoy being a member of this site. If you have tried the Aveeno Baby products leave me a comment of what you thought. On Friday December 4th I will pick 2 people who left comments to send a $1.00 off coupon for any Aveeno Baby product. Please leave your email with your post.

Something cool that Xerox is doing. 

If you go to this web site, , you can pick out a thank you card and Xerox will print it and it will be sent to a soldier that is currently serving in Iraq . You can ' t pick out who gets it, but it will go to some member of the armed services. 

How AMAZING it would be if we could get everyone we know to send one!!!   This is a great site. 

Please send a card. 

It is FREE and it only takes a second.

KMart Double Coupon Promotion


Did you hear? Some KMart stores are doubling $2 coupons every day through December 19, 2009 with a limit of 5 coupons per day.
I'd heard rumors of this, but Heather over at Spectacular Savings confirmed those rumors for me today with her post on her deals here.
Definitely call your KMart store to see if they are participating as well. And then us know what you find out. I'm curious if this is a very limited promotion or spread across the nation.
Since there's a limit of 5 coupons doubled per day, this isn't the most stellar promotion ever. That said, if you live near a KMart, it definitely could be a great deal for you. Just do a small 5-coupon trip everyday and you could stock up with all sorts of freebies--some which might even be perfect for Christmas gift baskets!

I will say I will be calling my Kmart tomorrow! I'll update you all when I find out about mine.

*~* Thanks Money Saving Mom *~*

Called mine and they are not doubling the coupons
